Hundreds of Malaysians took to street Saturday in Kuala Lumpur prostesting and demanding immediate action against Azam Baki, the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission’s (MACC) top official. 

Wearing masks and shouting “reject corruption”, about two hundred black-clad crowd called the top anti-graft to resign over a stock trading controversy where he owned millions of shares.

According to The Sun Daily, Azam, a key investigator into the former regime’s looting of the 1MDB state fund, has been under scrutiny for weeks over allegations of improper proxy trading after he admitted to letting his brother use his account. However, Azam denies all allegations of wrongdoing, while Malaysia’s securities regulator said this week that he had control of his account at the time of the trades, clearing him.
