Suspended Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) chairman Annuar Musa arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office in Putrajaya today at 9am to give his cooperation into investigations over alleged graft and misuse of power.
According to The Star Online, Annuar, the Umno information chief, arrived at MACC’s headquarters in a Toyota Alphard and went straight into the office without talking to the media who had been waiting since 8am.
He had stated on his Facebook that his first priority would be to meet the MACC on his return from New Zealand.
The Ketereh MP, who returned to Kuala Lumpur on Thursday night, stated that he would meet the MACC over investigations related to Mara’s sponsorship of the Kelantan Football Association (Kafa).
Annuar was former Kafa chairman.
Mara announced the immediate suspension of Annuar as chairman of Mara and its subsidiary Pelaburan Mara Bhd (PMB) on Tuesday.
The unanimous decision was made at a special meeting of the Mara Council.
Council member Yusof Yakob, who chaired the meeting, said Annuar’s temporary removal would remain in effect pending the findings of an internal audit.
The MACC also announced that it would call Annuar to record his statement.
On Tuesday, Rural and Regional Development Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said he was informed that the Mara Council held a special meeting to pave the way for an internal audit into the Kafa sponsorship as well as other issues that have been going viral on social media
