ACA: Dr Mahathir was never investigated


The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) had never investigated former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for allegedly trying to interfere in its investigation of a senior official of the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) in 1998, ACA Director of Investigations Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdul said today. However, he said the allegation that Dr Mahathir had instructed the EPU senior official’s case to be closed was investigated by the police - and not the ACA, contrary to media reports today.

“These are two different cases. One is on the senior officer in the EPU who was investigated by us and the second on Tun Dr Mahathir allegedly instructing that the first case be closed.

“We only investigated the first case. The second allegation — the one made against Tun Dr Mahathir — was not investigated by the ACA but by the police at that time,” he told a press conference at the ACA headquarters here.
