Ties Between Interpol, MACC Very Strong, Says Interpol Chief


By Azman Ujang

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 24 (Bernama) — Interpol, the world’s largest international police organisation which supports law enforcement agencies in 190 member countries, is working very closely with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on the transfer and sharing of knowledge to combat corruption.

Interpol secretary-general Ronald K. Noble said: “For us, the cooperation between Interpol and MACC is very strong. We have the closest of cooperation in terms of investigative techniques that are used to expose corruption and on investigations where there are international elements involved.”

He was speaking to Bernama here on Thursday, at the end of a two-day conference organised by Interpol, Fifa, the world’s football governing body, Asian Football Confederation and MACC, to deal with match-fixing which afflicts world football.

The conference was held, following revelations two weeks ago that almost 700 matches worldwide, including Champions League ties and World Cup qualifiers, were targeted by gambling gangs.

Noble said the Interpol-MACC cooperation was further strengthened with the secondment of an MACC officer to the Interpol Secretariat in Lyon, France.

MACC Assistant Senior Commissioner Mohd Hafaz Nazar reported for duty as a Criminal Investigation Officer in May last year, on a two-year stint at the secretariat.

In addition, MACC Chief Commissioner Datuk Seri Abu Kassim Mohamed has been a member of the Interpol Group of Experts on Corruption for the past 12 years.

Among Abu Kassim’s notable contributions was the Manual of Best Practices for anti-corruption and asset recovery procedures.

Noble said it was really an ideal relationship and he always thought that “we have to try to get better, but right now, in terms of it being strong, it is very strong.”

On the next agenda in their cooperation, the Interpol chief said, from his perspective, he would like to develop course work, together with the MACC, that would allow e-learning to happen in Malaysia in combating corruption.

“This could be expanded regionally around the world. I think that’s the next step for Interpol and MACC, ” he said.
