PETALING JAYA: The contradiction between Azam Baki’s admission that his brother used his account and the Securities Commission’s (SC) findings that he was solely responsible for any trading must be referred to the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC).

DAP’s Ramkarpal Singh said it was only appropriate for the AGC to step in now to investigate the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief’s alleged securities law breach.

“The conflicting accounts with Azam first saying his trading account was used by his brother, while SC later saying the account was used by Azam only is enough to arouse suspicions.

“It’s enough to get the AGC to open an investigation into the matter,” he said.

He added that a source within the SC who told FMT that it need not refer the matter to the AGC was wrong, as it was common to have the attorney-general review such findings. He also asked the SC to state if the source’s claim was also its official stand.
