MACC asked for Red Notice for Muhyiddin’s son-in-law, says IGP

The nation’s top cop says the anti-graft agency made a verbal request for help to track down Adlan Berhan and a lawyer.

(FMT) – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has requested that the police put out a Red Notice for Muhyiddin Yassin’s son-in-law and a lawyer, who it is seeking to assist in an investigation.

Inspector-General of Police Razarudin Husain said MACC made a verbal request for the Red Notice, and that the police will work closely with the anti-corruption agency to bring home the wanted individuals.

“We will work on whatever information we have so far. The request was only made verbally,” he said at a press conference at Bukit Aman today.

Previously, MACC chief commissioner Azam Baki said the agency may seek Interpol’s assistance to track down Adlan Berhan, 48, and lawyer Mansoor Saat, 69.

MACC wants them to assist in its investigation into a project involving the registration, recruitment and storage of foreign worker biometric data at a ministry.

Adlan had denied being on the run from the law and said he will return to Malaysia to assist MACC so long as the “elements of threats and persecution are eliminated”.

In February, FMT cited an MACC source who said the agency was investigating the award of a lucrative contract to the son-in-law of a former prime minister.

The source said MACC’s probe centred around possible abuse of power in connection with the National Integrated Immigration System (NIISe).

Adlan was named in media reports in 2020 as being linked to one of the project’s frontrunners – security solutions provider S5 Holdings Inc. However, S5 group managing director Syed Hafiz Jamalullail denied Adlan’s involvement in the firm.
