In the end, only Agong can determine my destiny, says Azam Baki

Tan Sri Azam Baki is adamant that he would not resign from his position as chairman of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), despite repeated calls for him to do so. He believes that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is the only person who has the authority to fire him, according to a report.

An investigation into Azam’s purchase of millions of shares in two publicly traded companies in 2015 is underway, and he has reportedly stated that he has submitted himself for investigation by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and that the truth will be revealed to the public at the right time.

According to the local newspaper Sinar Harian, he said that he had followed all of the proper procedures and done all that was required.

He also said that he hopes the truth will come to everyone eventually and has asked everyone to be patient first.

While questions have been raised in the past about why Azam did not immediately address the allegations regarding the share acquisition when they first surfaced last month, he stated that he had never pleaded with anyone or any party to side with him in the matter and that he would reveal the truth when the time was right.
