KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has opened an investigation paper on allegations that the status of six flood retention pond projects here has been converted for development purposes.

MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki said it would investigate the case from various aspects, including elements of corruption and abuse of power.
