The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will soon complete its probe into the Sabah Water Department’s graft and power abuse scandal.
Its deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Azam Baki said investigations papers would be submitted to the Attorney-General after investigators of the graft agency pored through nearly 12 tonnes of documents.
In a statement Thursday, he said MACC officials spent nearly a month to analyse 8,000 payment vouchers between 2008 and 2016 from “tens of thousands of documents” as part of their investigations.
The documents were seized from 30 locations around Sabah including Kota Kinabalu, Tawau, Sandakan and Lahad Datu.
Azam said 28 people including the department’s director and two of his deputies were detained during the course of their investigations since early October.
