    KL reinstates 2 anti-corruption officials


    CHIEF Secretary to Malaysia's government Ali Hamsa has revoked the transfer orders for two directors of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to the Prime Minister's Department as he is satisfied with their explanations.

    The two directors were transferred on Friday over "disciplinary issues".

    Mr Ali said in a statement that the two - Bahri Mohamad Zin and Rohaizad Yaakob - were reinstated with effect from yesterday.

    "The Public Service Director-General (Mohamad Zabidi Zainal) and I had met both officers and they had explained their actions in issuing media statements," he said.

    Mr Rohaizad was believed to have been transferred over his "soft approach" on opposition leaders when they visited MACC headquarters.

    Mr Bahri's transfer was believed to have been over his criticism of the police investigation on MACC officers. He was among those questioned in connection with the information leak in the investigation into state investor 1Malaysia Development Berhad.
