MACC’s Azam Baki could be jailed for contempt if he defies the Parliamentary subpoena, says Kit Siang

KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 14): Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commissioner (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki could be jailed for contempt if he defies the parliamentary subpoena to appear before the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) on the Agencies under the Prime Minister’s Department on Jan 19, according to veteran DAP strongman Lim Kit Siang.

In a statement on Friday (Jan 14), the Gelang Patah Member of Parliament said Azam was wrong when he said he was responsible only to the MACC Anti-Corruption Advisory Board (ACAB) when he owes a higher responsibility to Parliament.

“Azam should not test the powers of Parliament to punish him for parliamentary contempt if he defies the PSC on the Agencies under the Prime Minister’s Department’s subpoena to appear before it next Wednesday to clear himself of the conflict-of-interest allegations.

“The Houses of Parliament (Privileges and Powers) Act 1952 is very clear that Parliament can punish Azam for contempt if he defies the PSC on the Agencies under the Prime Minister’s Department’s subpoena to appear before it next Wednesday,” he said.

Lim also said while Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri had said the MACC has started its investigation into Azam’s case, there was silence as to who in MACC is heading the investigations.

“Why is the MACC so secretive about this information?” he asked.
