Former Independent Commission Against Corruption of Hong Kong (ICAC) commissioner Bertrand de Speville said politicians from all divides must have faith and confidence in the MACC to accomplish the task entrusted to it.
Moreover, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) should be allowed to get on with the job of implementing national anti-corruption strategies, without having to encounter any political interference.
Praising the MACC for being accountable to representatives of the public, de Speville noted that it was essential for the commission to have friends in local communities.
