Wan Saiful gets call from MACC over claims he was threatened to support PM

A BERSATU MP said he was contacted by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) barely an hour after he had alleged in the Dewan Rakyat that he was approached and threatened several times to support Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Taking to Facebook, Tasek Gelugor MP Datuk Wan Saiful Wan Jan said he had anticipated that the anti-graft agency would dismiss or downplay his earlier allegations.

“It’s all right, We understand that they have no choice but to ‘spin’ stories. Not an hour after my speech (at the Dewan Rakyat) I received a message from an MACC officer requesting that I get in touch with them. I will comply (with the request),” he wrote.

“But I just want to ask, what action will they take to halt the use of public funds as a bait for Bersatu MPs? Isn’t it better if the money was used for the welfare of the people?”

Earlier today, there was pandemonium in the Dewan Rakyat when Wan Saiful claimed that if he declared support for Anwar, he would be offered RM1.7 mil in allocations, among others.

He said he had to entertain these meetings as he was worried that they had power and they would do something unexpected to him.

According to Wan Saiful, the main message in all these meet-ups was that he must support Anwar as prime minister, and in return he would be rewarded with an allocation for his constituency, with a part of it designated for the service operation centre.

He further claimed these attempts to sway his support came after he had claimed trial to 18 counts of money laundering charges involving funds totalling around RM5.59 mil in Oct last year. – Feb 28, 2024
