It is understood that Latheefa’s deputy, Datuk Seri Azam Baki, will be replacing her position as chief on Monday. While the arrangement may be a temporary one, it is believed that he will likely replace Latheefa permanently as chief.

Latheefa, a prominent human-rights lawyer prior to her appointment as MACC chief, replaced Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull, after his contract was permitted to expire ahead of its deadline on May 17, 2020. She was meant to serve a two year tenure.

This resignation is especially eye-raising, as a number of high-profile corruption trials, including Najib’s, are underway. What do you guys think will happen in the wake of Latheefa’s resignation?
