HRD Corp personnel seen leaving Parliament

KUALA LUMPUR: Three people believed to be Human Resource Development Corporation (HRD Corp) personnel were seen leaving the Parliament building here today.

It is believed that the trio, including a woman identified as HRD Corp’s chief legal officer Merle Fernandez, had met with human resources minister Steven Sim.

The ministry had said it would conduct an independent audit of HRD Corp, which came under scrutiny following findings by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) and the national audit department.

The 2024 auditor-general’s (A-G) report, released last week, found that HRD Corp had failed to carry out its responsibility to collect RM205.42 million in mandatory levies owed by 21,058 employers.

HRD Corp also amended its key performance indicator goals for 2020 to 2023 without the approval of its board of directors.

PAC meanwhile revealed that the company’s investment panel had not reported its investment activities appropriately to its board of directors, with levies collected “aggressively” used for high-risk investments.

Yesterday, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission officials visited HRD Corp’s office and seized three boxes of documents believed to be linked to the findings in the A-G’s report.
