KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaganita executive director Irene Fernandez who has come under bouts of criticism for advising the Indonesian government to put a halt to its domestic workers supply to the country had on Tuesday received a letter from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
In the letter which was faxed to the organisation’s office in Petaling Jaya here, MACCC requested Fernandez to attend an interview over her remarks over the incompetence of Malaysia to vouch for the safety of immigrant workers from the republic.
MACC in the letter said that the authority viewed Fernandez’s allegations to Jakarta Post as a grave matter of concern and hence requested her to facilitate investigations.
"I am not surprised or shocked over MACC’s request. I am just concerned as I feel that they (MACC) should be cracking down issues of corruption related to the hiring of immigrant workers and not give a chase to the whistleblower,” Fernandez said during a press conference at Tenaganita’s office here.
