On 4 June 2019, Latheefa was appointed as Mohamad Shukri Abdull’s successor as chief commissioner of the MACC on a two-year contract effective 1 June 2019. Fellow PKR member and Lembah Pantai MP, Ahmad Fahmi Mohamed Fadzil, called for her resignation from the party to avoid conflict of interests. This was followed by a response from Latheefa herself, who tweeted that she had already submitted her resignation as an ordinary PKR member on 3 June 2019, after being informed of her impending appointment. LFL also released a statement announcing that its co-founder has relinquished her position and membership within the organisation. She became the first woman to be appointed to the post. Her appointment drew mixed reactions from politicians and members of the public alike, receiving praise for being known for her no-nonsense approach but criticised by others as her appointment did not go through parliament and due to her political background. Among those who praised her appointment but questioned the process of doing so included former Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih) chairperson, Petaling Jaya MP, and Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) executive director Cynthia Gabriel. Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) president called her appointment “mind-boggling” whilst Muara Tuang assemblyman Idris Buang from the United Bumiputera Heritage Party (PBB) labelled the appointment “repugnant”. Other society leaders including and former Malaysian Bar Council president, , hailed her appointment. On 25 June 2019, Latheefa was sworn-in as the Chief Commissioner of the MACC before the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King of Malaysia).
The Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) on Major Public Appointments chairman, Selayang MP, has initially confirmed that PSC was not consulted over Latheefa’s appointment. Prominent lawyer and former Federal Court of Malaysia judge, Gopal Sri Ram, remarked that the legislature “has no role to play” in Latheefa’s appointment as chief commissioner of MACC. Somehow on 4 July 2019, Latheefa has finally met with the PSC on her MACC appointment which both responded positively after the meeting and the report on the PSC meeting would be tabled in the Parliament.
Latheefa was questioned over her “many” awards and medals on her MACC’s chief uniform despite serving in the post for less than a month by the UMNO supreme council member Lokman Noor Adam and criticisms of her uniform went viral on social media on 28 June 2019. She in admitting she was just beginning learning about uniforms, rank badges and ribbon bars; also claimed they were essentially correct and acceptable although there were some minor discrepancies in the ribbon bars which have been rectified. She explained that the MACC’s uniform and its paraphernalia were mandated according to the Standing Order of the MACC chief commissioner, Chapter A (Policy) No 1 of 2012. She also stressed her priorty to combat corruption take precedence over appearance of her uniform.
In June 2018, Latheefa criticised the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government for encouraging a young child to donate to the Tabung Harapan Malaysia (THM) fund. A month later, she criticised the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia and former PKR president,, for allegedly delaying prosecution against a man who wanted to marry an underage girl.
In November 2018, Latheefa called PKR president Wan Azizah’s visit to Julau ahead of Sarawak PKR polls as “inappropriate” due to the usage of government machinery and announcement of allocations in the presence of one of the candidates, Julau MP. She then called for the party to suspend the upcoming polls for Julau following a massive spike in the division membership from 603 to over 13,000 just a day later, alleging that party leaders are “whitewashing” the episode and legitimising fraud.
On 17 December 2018, Latheefa launched a scathing attack on her new PKR president, Anwar Ibrahim, over his appointments of PKR state liaison chiefs, alleging “cronyism and nepotism” after many of the selections did not receive majority support from respective state division chiefs. Her comments drew rebukes from her own party members, criticising her for openly criticising the party president and submitted a disciplinary complaint against her to the party. Latheefa responded by saying that using “UMNO (United Malay National Organisation)-style tactics” to silence her will not succeed. Soon after her comments, Anwar’s daughter and Permatang Pauh MPresigned from all party posts whilst Pasir Gudang MP rejected the offer to become the Johor PKR state liaision chief.
Latheefa revealed the purpose behind the move orchestrated to remove Khalid Ibrahim as Menteri Besar of Selangor in 2014 by one of PKR’s vice presidents,, was to prevent PKR deputy president, , from becoming the Menteri Besar of Selangor. The Kajang move, however, failed to achieve its true motives.
Between June 2008 and July 2012, Latheefa was a member of the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ), but quit from her post after rumours emerged regarding her expulsion from the council. She later co-founded Lawyers for Liberty (LFL) alongside former Padang Serai Member of Parliament (MP),, in 2011. She served as its advisor until 2018 before becoming its executive director.
Latheefa was called to the Malaysian Bar in 2001. Since May 2002, she has practiced law in Messrs Daim & Gamany, co-founded by Abdul Daim, former Minister of Finance of Malaysia, as an advocate and solicitor.
Latheefa graduated from the University of London with a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) (LL.B. (Hons.)) in 1997. She later obtained the Malaysian Certificate in Legal Practice in August 1999, enabling her to practice as a lawyer in Malaysia.
