PETALING JAYA: Malaysians should proceed to lodge reports with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on the US Department of Justice action to recover money allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB.

The call was made by Tony Pua, DAP national publicity secretary and Petaling Jaya Utara MP.

He said all Malaysians should heed the call made by the MACC chief commissioner Dzulkifli Ahmad to be “brave” and file reports on any corruption or abuse of power they see.

Dzulkifli had assured those who wanted to remain anonymous that their identities would be protected. He also launched the new anti-corruption hotline number 1800-88-6000.

“Datuk Dzulkifli’s call and toll-free number could not have come at a more opportune time,” Pua said.

“Malaysians have been outraged and flabbergasted by the latest suit filed by the US DoJ under the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative for multi-billion ringgit worth of assets from funds they say are laundered from 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Bhd).

“Hence, with the wealth of information and evidence contained in the 251-page suit, all Malaysians can now be ‘brave’ and ring the toll-free number to file a complaint against corruption, abuse of power and money laundering by 1MDB as well as against both MO1 (Malaysian Official 1) and his wife.

“After all, there is no bigger case of corruption plaguing the country today than the RM42 billion 1MDB scandal.”

Pua said the question now was whether MACC would be equally “brave” as ordinary Malaysians to investigate MO1, his wife, 1MDB officers as well as Jho Low and his associates for the crimes they are accused of.

He said Dzulkifli should not abdicate his responsibilities by passing the buck to the police as he has so declared.
