PUTRAJAYA, The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will summon several witnesses to record their statements in the near future over issues involving the Human Resource Development Corporation (HRD Corp).

MACC Investigation Division senior director Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hashim shared this development after the commission’s investigative team’s visit to HRD Corp in Kuala Lumpur and the Human Resources Ministry (KESUMA) here today to obtain follow-up documents.

“So far, no witnesses have had their statements recorded but MACC will summon witnesses in the near future after document reviews are conducted.
