MACC takes statement from former PM’s son

The investigation is believed to be over his purchase of a government-linked company’s subsidiary.

(Bernama) – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) confirmed recording a statement from the son of a former prime minister yesterday, believed to be over his business ventures in the late 1990s.

When contacted, a source from MACC said he was called to give his statement, including a declaration of his assets in the country and abroad.

“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 said MACC had called up the person last month in connection with claims of bribery and corruption.
