KUALA LUMPUR – Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz has confirmed that he has been called by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to help with an investigation.
The International Trade and Industry Minister, however, said he was unclear of the case that he will be giving a statement for.
“I can confirm that I have been called by the MACC and God willing, I will meet them soon and give my full cooperation,” he said when met at the ministry’s Chinese New Year networking session 2023 here on Monday (Feb 20).
When asked if he was called in for the investigation on the Jana Wibawa project, the former Finance Minister said: “I don’t know. Let’s wait.”
On Sunday (Feb 19), MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki confirmed that the agency will call in Tengku Zafrul to have his statement recorded to facilitate investigations into the Jana Wibawa project.
Azam also confirmed that MACC has recorded former Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s statement over the same investigation.
“Investigations are ongoing and it is inappropriate to draw their own conclusions, regardless if they are called in as witnesses or suspects,” he said.
