A bowling tournament between Ipoh-based media practitioners and staff of Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was held on Wednesday, January 8 at Kinta City, Ipoh. The bowling arena was filled with enthusiastic participants and supporters.
Some 15 teams partook in the game consisting of some 45 players. Present at the tournament were MACC Chief Commissioner, Latheefa Koya and MACC Perak director, Mohd Fauzi Mohamad.
Organised by MACC Perak, the objective was to strengthen the relationship between both parties and as a form of gratitude to the local media for highlighting the activities of the commission in Perak.
On the issue of going public with the nine voice recordings of Najib, Rosmah and senior officers by MACC on Wednesday, January 8, Latheefa was non-committal. “Let matters take their course,” she insisted. “Najib is at liberty to do or say whatever he wants,” she added.
The tournament was won by the team from MACC with the media team trailing behind. In the individual category, Luqman Hakim from Ipoh Echo came in second with an aggregate of 513 pinfalls.
The winning team and the individual winners received trophies which were presented by Latheefa.
