Abdu Kassim left the palace without talking to waiting journalists at about 10.40am.

Abu Kassim replaces Ahmad Said Hamdan, who submitted a written notice to have his contract of service shortened from May 25, 2010 to Dec 31, 2009.

Among those present at the swearing-in included Ahmad Said, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nazri Aziz and Inspector-General of Police Musa Hasssan.

MACC’s tainted reputation

The new chief commissioner inherits an agency whose reputation was severely tainted following the death of DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock last year.

The commission has also been criticised for allegedly practicing double standards when it comes to investigating Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat politicians.

Abu Kassim has a Bachelor of Social Science degree from Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang and Master of Science in Criminal Justice from the Michigan State University, United States.

He joined the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) on Sept 1, 1984 as an investigation officer. ACA was later renamed as the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission last year.

Abu Kassim also served as director of planning and policy coordinator at the ACA headquarters, ACA director for Perak and Penang, director of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Academy and was seconded to Amanah Raya Berhad as its head of Integrity.

He was appointed deputy director-general (operations) of the ACA on Jan 1, 2001 and with the enforcement of the new Act on Jan 1, 2009, he was appointed deputy chief commissioner of MACC.

 Can We Count on Him Going After And Catching THE BIG FISH…???

    Lets see whether he will bring a new feel to MACC or will it just be another department waiting for instructions and following orders from the ruling government??

  2. Big Deal says:

    MACC needs to repair its image? Time to do their part and net in the BIG FISHES CONNECTED with the PKFZ scandal plus many others..

  3. Infamous says:

    In due time and please hurry to catch the bIG ONES..Forget the small irrelevant ones. Its the big ones which will ensure the country will attract more foreign investors. Rid it and show us!

  4. Mata Kuching says:

    All it takes is 90 days for the new MACC chief to restore the independence and integrity of MACC by netting the BIG FISH and to undo what his predecessor had zealously committed. If he cannot accomplish that in his first 90 days as head of MACC, nothing will ever change and he is just as irrelevant, leaving PR and all concerned Malaysians who love our country to take the fight to the very last.

    A few years ago I brought the white Australian boyfriend of my eldest lawyer daughter to eat fish balls in a famous Sibu coffee shop near the old bus station.When he looked into his bowl of the famous ” pang pang ku ” he threw up his arms he exclaimed “Look at the size of the fish balls.It must have been taken from some very big fishes.The fishermen who cut off those big fish balls must have been very powerful.It takes great guts to harvest that size of fish balls from big fishes.I am not capable of eating them because they make choke and kill me “.
    All the enforcement officers knows that they are not superman.They have wife and children to feel too.They may not be completely ” clean ” themselves.They may lost their jobs and the black hands may come after them when they are in their defenseless position.Only angels does not fear death as they cannot die at all.And on man is an angel.
