PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob must get the Cabinet to terminate the services of Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief Azam Baki if he is not prepared to appear before a special select committee to clear allegations surrounding his ownership of corporate shares, DAP leader Lim Kit Siang said.

Lim said it would be Ismail’s “last chance” to salvage his position as the prime minister amid a backdrop of several issues faced by his government.

In a statement, he said the Cabinet should also decide to convene a special Parliament sitting on Jan 21 to restore public confidence in the government’s anti-corruption programme and to receive, debate and decide on any report the Special Select Committee on Agencies in the Prime Minister’s Department might make on the controversy.

Lim said Malaysia had suffered “two infamies” – the 1MDB scandal and former prime minister Najib Razak, who was convicted in the SRC International corruption case, opening an international conference.

“Let us not suffer a third infamy where the MACC chief loses all public confidence,” the Iskandar Puteri MP added.
