Bung Moktar spends the day talking to MACC


PETALING JAYA: Outspoken Sabah MP Bung Moktar Radin was interviewed by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission today as part of the agency’s investigations into investments made by Felcra Berhad.

Bung Moktar, who is MP for Kinabatangan, is chairman of the government-owned company, which was formed out of the statutory body, Federal Land Consolidation and Rehabilitation Authority.

The investigations are believed to be related to several investments in unit trusts made by Felcra and possible kickbacks associated with it, Malaysiakini reported.

“The MP is being summoned for questioning and was not arrested,” it quoted an unidentified source as saying.

Bung Moktar arrived at MACC headquarters in Putrajaya at 9.40am. He was wearing a dark jacket, white shirt and blue jeans. He did not speak to reporters but gave a thumbs-up gesture before going in.

MACC officers present at the lobby remarked casually that the proceedings might take some time.

Bung Moktar’s second wife, former actress Zizie Ezette, was also interviewed by MACC last month.
