JOHOR BARU: Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki (pic) will be called for questioning if Pakatan Harapan forms the government after the 15th General Election (GE15), says Rafizi Ramli.
He said that Azam will be held responsible for all of the alleged irregularities that the MACC has conducted regarding the raids and seizures from the office of Invoke Solutions Sdn Bhd.

The PKR deputy president then said that Invoke Solutions – the data firm he founded – has been raided by the MACC twice for two days in a row.
“We will meet him (Azam) in court on Thursday (Nov 17) as the confiscated documents contain sensitive information related to customers, which is protected under customer confidentiality laws.
“All of that information needs to be approved by the High Court first. It’s not like you can come with a search warrant and blackmail us,” he said on Wednesday (Nov 16) night at a speech at the PH “Kita Boleh” political talk at Dataran Larkin.
The PKR election director added that the MACC actions are nothing more than political persecution that is meant to hurt Pakatan’s image before the upcoming elections.
“If MACC wanted to conduct investigations, interrogate my staff, request documents, or seize anything, please follow the law,” said Rafizi.
Earlier, on Nov 16, Utusan Malaysia reported that MACC’s investigation division’s senior director Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hashim had confirmed the raid that occurred at 11.30am.
“All the relevant documents were taken for review, following a report submitted by a non-governmental organisation (NGO) last week on the net asset value of RM18.85mil belonging to Rafizi.
“After that, further action will be taken depending on the documents examined,” he told the daily.
On Tuesday night (Nov 15), at a ceramah in Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur, Rafizi revealed that Invoke Solutions had been “raided”.
