KUALA LUMPUR: A deputy director of a Higher Education Ministry-owned company was today charged at the Sessions Court with causing a whistleblower who exposed the former’s misconduct to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to be sacked.

Wafiy Abd Aziz, 35, who is the first person to be charged under the Whistleblower Protection Act 2010 (Act 711) pleaded not guilty before judge Azman Ahmad.

According to the charge sheet, Wafiy, a senior official at Education Malaysia Global Services (EMGS) had taken detrimental action against the person who blew the whistle on him to the MACC.

He allegedly did this by inciting Datuk Abdul Rahman Shariff, the chairman of the company, to sign a document of ‘Termination of Employment’ against the whistleblower in retaliation for exposing his improper conduct to the anti-graft agency.

Wafiy allegedly committed the offence at the EMGS office, Suite A-21-1, Level 21, 157 Hampshire Office 1, Jalan Mayang Sari, here, on Jan 9.
