PETALING JAYA: The Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) says its chief commissioner Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed will not step down from his position.
In a statement Monday, it said Abu Kassim would hold on to his position and not bow to any pressure.
According to MACC, Abu Kassim’s contract as chief commissioner would only end on 2018 and his compulsory retirement from civil service on 2020.
“Tan Sri Abu Kassim holds to his decision that he will not bow to pressure from any parties unless it is by his own decision to leave because of health reasons.
“There is no pressure from any parties asking him to end his tenure in MACC,” said the statement.
MACC’s statement followed reports by two portals that Abu Kassim would be replaced due to health reasons.
