The series of arrests against Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission investigators by police have disrupted its investigation into SRC International Sdn Bhd, MACC deputy chief commissioner Mustafar Ali is lamenting.

This comes after two of its investigators involved in the SRC International investigation were arrested by police last night after presenting themselves at the Putrajaya district police headquarters.

A sum of RM42 million out of the RM2.6 billion deposited into Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s personal bank accounts originated from SRC International.

As to whether the arrests disrupted the investigation in the case investigated by MACC, Mustafar ( photo ) said in a statement late last night that the police action “had more or less disrupted the smoothness of the investigation process as the officers’ equipment, such as laptops, have been confiscated by police”.

He said both MACC officers also had their offices and homes raided by police.

“One of them is the investigating officer in the SRC International case,” Mustafar added.

MACC had come under siege for investigating the flow of funds involving the prime minister’s bank accounts.

Several of its investigators were investigated under Section 124B of the Penal Code, which concerns activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy.

MACC special operations division director Bahri Mohamad Zin has vowed to find out who is behind the order for police to persecute the commission’s investigators.

Under Section 48 of the MACC Act, it is an offence to obstruct the investigation of the MACC.
