MACC quizzes Dr Khir over two cases

(The Star) – Former Selangor mentri besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo spent about six hours at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over two cases being investigated by the commission.

It is understood that Dr Mohd Khir arrived at the MACC headquarters here at about 8.30am Monday and only left the building at about 2.30pm.

He managed to evade the group of pressmen who had been waiting outside the lobby since about 8am by using the basement carpark just below the MACC office.

It is understood that the former mentri besar did not use his own car when he came to the MACC office but had been driven there in a Proton Wira to avoid being spotted by the press.

It is learnt that Dr Mohd Khir was queried by MACC officers over the purchase of his multimillion-ringgit palatial mansion and also allegations that government-linked companies in Selangor had paid RM1.7mil for Disney World and Disneyland “technical” trips when he was mentri besar.
