KUALA LUMPUR: Human Resources Minister, V. Sivakumar’s home and office were raided by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Monday after the minister’s statement was recorded.

According to reports, Sivakumar’s home and office were raided and searched by MACC officers right after the minister gave his statement to the agency in relation to a probe on migrant worker approvals.

The daily newspaper Utusan Malaysia reported that the minister had spent more than nine hours at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya.  

Regarding the case, the MACC Chief Commissioner, Azam Baki confirmed on Monday that Sivakumar’s statement was taken by MACC following the arrests of a few of his officers in relation to the case involving the recruitment of foreign workers.

In another development, Sivakumar said, he was ready to cooperate with the authorities over the issue and urged members of the public not to make speculation about the arrests and added it was part of the investigation once the MACC received a complaint.

However, V Sivakumar had denied that MACC raided his house and office in relation to a probe when he was asked by some media.

“No, no no,” he said when asked about a news report on the alleged raid this morning.

Last Friday, Sivakumar’s private secretary was arrested in an investigation into the approval of migrant worker quotas. –Malaysia World News
