Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan (pic) was fuming mad for being linked to son’s child pornography offense as reported by a local media. datuk-ahmad-said

“Why are they targeting me? I did nothing over there. It’s like committing a traffic offence here and paying the summons – and then the father gets blamed for it. Is that fair? It’s brainless,” he said.

According to Ahmad Said the offence happened in 2007 but has resurfaced now because of his appointment as MACC chief commissioner.

He defended his son by saying: “there were other Malaysian and Singaporean pilots who also paid fines for similar offenses, but my son was picked on (by the blogs) because of his link to me,” in an interview with Sunday Star.

Ahmad Said, sympathises with his son and in-laws, who have been dragged into the picture unnecessarily. He also dismisses the claims that he interfered and asked Malaysia Airlines for help.

“There was no interference. People called me up and asked me if I wanted help. I said ‘Nothing doing’.

“I said let him face it, although I got him a lawyer,” he said.
