MACC investigates high-ranking official in Tourism Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR: A high-ranking official of Tourism Malaysia with the title “Datuk Seri” is being investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over alleged abuse of power.

Sources revealed that the commission officers had been “camping out” at Tourism Malaysia’s headquarters since Tuesday, checking on the official’s alleged abuse of power that might also involve criminal breach of trust.

“The officers are checking possible siphoning of funds via Tourism Malaysia’s procurement and advertising divisions,” one source said Thursday.

“They are in the process of obtaining evidence,” another source added.

The MACC was also investigating the purchase of domestic and international flight tickets from a travel company that apparently belonged to one of the Datuk Seri’s family members.
