MACC vs Raja Petra

The question here would be, do they (MACC) really have a case against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak or is this just a game to create the perception that they are serious about combating corruption and even a man as powerful as the prime minister would not be spared the long arm of the MACC?

MACC also stresses that MACC is "not out to get the Prime Minister" as claimed by Raja Petra Kamarudin to boost the credibility and increase the public confidence. MACC is not depending on this case to increase its public confidence. The issue of SRC International and RM2.6 billion are among several cases that has merit for investigation under the MACC Act 2009. Thus, MACC has the duty and the moral responsibility to carry a comprehensive investigation.
