SHAH ALAM: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has dispelled rumours of alleged bribery at the Midlands Convention Centre vaccination centre (PPV).
In a statement today, it said that there was no substantial proof to show that the doorman had asked for RM80 in bribes from those wanting to get jabbed.
“Based upon the information from our intelligence team, we found that the alleged incident did not take place at the Shah Alam Convention Centre (SACC), as claimed in a viral video.
“We also discovered that the long queue was caused by foreign workers who wanted to try getting the vaccine despite not having an appointment.”
However, MACC acknowledged that there were glaring problems with the Midlands PPV’s system since it was made as an Industrial Workers Vaccine Program Center (PPVIN) under the Covid-19 Public-Private Partnership Industrial Immunization Program (PIKAS).
It also advised the public to lodge a formal complaint to any of its offices instead of sharing it on social media.
