In a joint statement today, opposition leaders have called for MACC's Consultation and Corruption Prevention Panel (CCPP) chairman Tan Sri Borhan Dolah to go on immediate leave due to the latter's alleged inaction against Azam.

"At the same time, the MACC's Consultation and Corruption Prevention Panel chairman Tan Sri Borhan Doola must also go on leave until the same investigation is complete as he is unwilling to act to investigate Azam Baki even though Azam has allegedly has breached the law by allowing his shares trade account to be used by his brother via proxy with millions of shares and warrant.
"There needs to be a new clean leadership, professional and independent to head MACC's ACAB and CCPP so that the competency, integrity and credibility of the MACC can be restored,'' said the statement.
Oppostion leaders also reiterated the call for a special parliament session to discuss the matter, either before or after the special parliament sitting on January 20 to discuss flood-related matters.
