Undersea tunnel project: Lim Guan Eng attends third MACC session

(Bernama) – Former Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng today attended the third session with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) at its office here today. He arrived at 10.42 a.m. accompanied by his lawyer, RSN Rayer, who is also Jelutong Member of Parliament, to give his statement in connection to the undersea tunnel project by the Penang state government.

The first time he met the MACC to help in the investigations into the case was on last Wednesday when he left the MACC office at 7.13 p.m., about seven hours after he arrived there.

The media had previously reported that Penang Chief Minister and several current and former Exco members of the state government had also given their statements to the MACC in connection to the RM6.3 billion project.

MACC Chief Commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki has been reported as saying the investigations are in connection to money laundering.

The MACC has been investigating the case since  2017.

The project was planned during the time Lim was Penang Chief Minister.
