MACC records statement from former PM’s son

THE Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) confirmed yesterday (Jan 17) that the commission had recorded a statement from the son of a former prime minister.

It is believed that the statement is regarding the individual’s business ventures in the late 1990s.

When contacted by Bernama, a source from the MACC said the individual was called to give his statement, including declaring his assets in the country and abroad.

The investigation is believed to be over the individual’s purchase of a government-linked company’s (GLC) subsidiary.

“The investigation requires the individual to declare all his assets, either in the country or outside the country, in writing,” said the source.

Media reports claimed that the MACC called up the individual last month in connection with claims of bribery and corruption. – Jan 18, 2023
