The Deputy Director of the Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission or MACC (Suruhanjaya Pencegah Rasuah atau SPRM), Hishamuddin Hashim whose name was mentioned in the mystery letter have taken emergency leave on Friday.
Reporters from Merdeka Review tried to interview him regarding the allegation in a “mystery letter” that was exposed in “Malaysia Today“, in his office. However, the office staff informed them that Hishamuddin has take leave and will not be coming in to office.
Among the allegations against the officer in the letter include:
* The officer did not punch out from work when he left Plaza Masalam where the Selangor MACC is located on that day. However, the letter stated the time of him leaving the office. This is important as it could show that this officer was the last person to have seen Teoh on that day, alleged the letter.
* The officer did not provide his DNA samples along with his other colleagues. He only gave a sample privately at a later day.
* That he ordered his officers to wipe clean the window from where Teoh had apparently fallen from.
* His alleged corrupt practices while investigating previous cases and that he is generally corrupt.
* He had helped close an investigation on the politician.
The letter also stated that the top officer had been serving in the state for a long time, well beyond the usual five-year term for high ranking officials.
The letter also claimed that he was living beyond his means by having several houses, a petrol station in Shah Alam and several plots of land, courtesy of the politician’s goodwill.
He was also allegedly caught for khalwat with his junior officer at the Shah Alam lake early this year.
