PUTRAJAYA, May 15 2018 : Former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad today reports for duty at the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) here.
Dressed in a black suit and tie, he entered the Attorney General’s Chambers building in Precinct 4 at about 8.15am.
When coming out of his Proton Perdana, he smiled and waved when greeted by media practitioners waiting at the lobby.
Yesterday, Dzulkifli handed his letter of contract termination as MACC chief commissioner to the Chief Secretary to the Government, Tan Sri Ali Hamsa.
Dzulkifli, 50, a legal officer at AGC was appointed MACC chief commissioner on temporary transfer from Oct 1 2016 to July 31 2021.
Earlier, Dzulkifli who was the director of National Revenue Recovery Enforcement Team at AGC replaced Tan Sri Dr Abu Kassim Mohamed who became an Integrity Consultant in the Law Faculty at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM).
Dzulkifli’s current post at AGC is still unknown.
Meanwhile, Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali has begun his 30-day unrecorded leave from today.
“I am on a 30-day unrecorded leave. So physically I will not be in my office today,” said Mohamed Apandi in a short message, while maintaining that he is still the Attorney-General serving at the pleasure of the King.
Yesterday, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Mohamed Apandi had been asked to go on leave and Solicitor-General, Datuk Engku Nor Faizah Engku Atek would stand in for him with immediate effect.
Media representatives have been waiting at the Attorney General’s Chambers in Presint 4 here since 8 am today to meet Mohamed Apandi if he shows up in the office.
“Don’t waste your precious time at the Attorney General’s Chambers. My salam and regards to my media friends out there. Will be seeing all of you on some other occasions. Insya Allah. Thank you all,” said Mohamed Apandi in a message as he was aware of media presence at the building.
Mohamed Apandi had turned up for work as usual yesterday despite Dr Mahathir’s remark last Saturday in a press conference, that “there is no A-G in the country now”. – Bernama
