Plot against Perak MB: MACC may question 6 assemblymen again

The MACC is investigating an alleged plot to topple Perak Menteri Besar Ahmad Faizal Azumu.

IPOH: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is likely to recall six Perak assemblymen to question them further on the alleged plot to topple Perak Menteri Besar Ahmad Faizal Azumu.

Perak MACC director Zainul Darus said apart from the six assemblymen, the commission would also call Ahmad Faizal to record his statement, if necessary.

“We have to synchronise the statements that we have recorded, and if it is necessary, we will call the witnesses,” he told reporters after launching the 2018 International Anti-Corruption Day Premier Walkabout Programme at the state MACC office here today.

Last Thursday, a newspaper reported that Alor Pongsu assemblyman Sham Mat Sahat, Rungkup assemblyman Shahrul Zaman Yahya, Bota assemblyman Khairul Shahril Mohamed, Bukit Chandan assemblyman Maslin Sham Razman, Lubuk Merbau assemblyman Jurij Jalaluddin and Kota Tampan assemblyman Saarani Mohamad, who is also Perak Umno chairman, had been called in by MACC to record their statements on the matter.

Prior to that, Tebing Tinggi assemblyman and state education, technology, science and environment committee chairman Abdul Aziz Bari, who allegedly masterminded the plot, was also called in by MACC.
