Cops nab MACC officer for suspected marijuana abuse
PUTRAJAYA: Police have arrested a Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer at the Complex Hall D in Precinct 1 here, for allegedly abusing marijuana.
Acting Putrajaya OCPD Supt Mak Pak Chuai said the 32-year-old assistant enforcer was arrested by a team from the Putrajaya narcotics division during an operation, codenamed Ops Tapis, at about 10am Tuesday.
“He was arrested during office hours,” he added.
It is learnt that the officer underwent a drug test in the complex.
He was arrested after his urine sample tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a substance found in marijuana.
He was then taken to the district police headquarters to have his statement recorded.
TEOH BENG HOCK DIED WHEN HE WAS IN THE CUSTODY OF THE MALAYSIAN ANTI-CORRUPTION AGENCY (MACC).
Teoh, 30, the political aide to a Selangor government executive committee member, was found dead on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam on July 16 2009 after he was interrogated at the MACC office on the 14th Floor of the same building.
On Oct 3 last year, Teoh’s father Teoh Leong Hwee, his mother Teng Shuw Hoi, his fiancée Soh Cher Wei and his son Teoh Er Jia filed the suit against MACC, the government and 12 others for causing them sorrow and the loss of dependence.
Six years ago today, former commercial crime investigation department director Ramli Yusuff was hauled to the Sessions Court in Kuala Lumpur on five charges, in which he was fully vindicated after a long and protracted battle.
Today he named attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail and 11 others in a RM128.5 million suit for malicious prosecution.
Ramli, 61, also named former inspector-general of police Musa Hassan, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, the Attorney-General’s Chambers head of prosecution Nordin Hassan, previously Anti-Corruption Agency prosecution chief, several MACC officers, the police and government as defendants.
The former top cop’s legal action stems from the acquittals he secured in Kuala Lumpur and Sabah and after the government failed to restore his various rights and privileges as a top government official. Ramli (right) was ranked number 3 in the police force when he was arrested.
