MACC's uphill battle. Norza Zakaria was the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's biggest fish until his acquittal this morning.The people will be asking again why the MACC keeps losing cases in court. If the case against Norza, the former FT Umno Youth chief, wasn't water-tight, why prosecute him in the first place?
I say it's time the MACC chief be given prosecution powers. That way it's his neck if the MACC loses a case or he will have to explain why nobody is being prosecuted in the case of PKFZ and alleged corruption involving big names like Khir Toyo and Khalid Ibrahim. Very few people know that the power to prosecute lies with the Attorney-General. But when MACC loses a case or the A-G decides not to prosecute, it's always the MACC that takes the blame.
