MALAYSIA: FORMER DEPUTY PM ZAHID LEAVES MACC HQ AFTER BEING QUIZZED FOR EIGHT HOURS

PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia Oct 10 (NNNBernama)Former deputy prime minister Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has left the Malaysian AntiCorruption Commission headquarters here after being quizzed for about eight hours today.

The questioning is said to be to assist the agency’s probe into alleged misappropriation of funds belonging to a foundation.

Ahmad Zahid, who arrived at the MACC HQ at 9.20 am, left the premises at 5.40 pm.

When swarmed by local and foreign journalists, the UMNO president said: I have to come again.

About an hour before that, his daughter Nurulhidayah was seen leaving the MACC HQ but there were no signs of his stepbrother Mohamad Nasaee Ahmad Tarmizi, who was also seen entering the premises this morning.

Ahmad Zahid in a Twitter post on Monday had said that he would give his full cooperation to MACC regarding the probe. The MACC had also recorded a statement from him on the same matter in July.

Local and foreign journalists had camped outside the MACC HQ since 8am to cover the unfolding events. NNNBERNAMA
