Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission denies MP probed for abuse of power

PUTRAJAYA - Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) deputy chief commissioner (Operations) Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull has denied a report that a member of Parliament (MP) has been called to assist in investigations on abuse of power.

"This is not true," he told Bernama here in a WhatsApp message on Tuesday.

Mohd Shukri said the MACC had not called any MP who held a position in a government-linked company (GLC) to give a statement.

It was reported that an MP had been called by the MACC for allegedly abusing his position as director in a GLC.

The report had quoted an MACC official who said: "Investigations are being conducted. No MP has been detained."
