PETALING JAYA: Barisan Nasional’s Kinabatangan MP Bung Moktar Radin and his wife, actress Zizie Izette A Samad, were arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission this morning.

According to the anti-graft agency, they were nabbed in Sabah to facilitate a probe into alleged corruption involving millions of ringgit linked to the Federal Land Consolidation and Rehabilitation Authority (Felcra).

Bung was Felcra chairman during Barisan Nasional’s administration.

Bung, who is also the Sabah Umno chief, was arrested at the MACC office in Kota Kinabalu at 10.50am, and Zizie was nabbed at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya almost half an hour later.

They were released on MACC bail after having their statements taken.

They will be charged in Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

Earlier, a source told FMT that Bung is expected to face three charges while his wife is expected to be charged with abetment.
