KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 17 — Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki said that the anti-graft body is expecting an increase in corrupt practices and power abuse in Malaysia in the coming years.

He said this is due to the vulnerable and complex environment that Malaysia currently finds itself in, but did not elaborate further, according to a report by The Star today.

“With the Covid-19 pandemic impacting the domestic economy, the MACC will focus on reducing leakage of public money and the return of ill-gotten proceeds through the recovery of assets,” he said.

Azam added that checking on leakages is essential as the government spends billions annually on the procurement of goods and services.
