Umno president Najib Razak said Annuar Musa would remain as UMNO Information Chief for now.
Najib said Annuar, the MP for Ketereh, should be given the opportunity to clear his name from accusations on abuse of power linked to sponsorhip of the Kelantan football team The Red Warriors by agencies under Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara).
“He is willing to be investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, so give him a chance to clear his name.
“We cannot make assumptions…due process must take place,” he said.
Najib told this to reporters after visiting the Flood Relief Centre located at Institut Kemahiran Bina Negara (IKBN) Paloh Hinai here yesterday. – Bernama
