Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) spent almost four hours questioning Ketereh MP Annuar Musa over Kelantan Football Association (Kafa) expenditure.

Annuar, recently suspended as Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) chairman, greeted reporters who had been waiting since 8am at the MACC headquarters lobby in Putrajaya.

“They questioned me about Kelantan Football Association (Kafa) spending.

“I’ve answered every single question they asked and now is up to them to decide if there is a case or not,” said the former Kafa chairman.

When questioned by reporters if he would meet the Prime Minister Najib Razak over his position in Umno, Annuar said that this is an issue which has nothing to do with the party, The Star Online reported.

“This is my case with the MACC, so let me manage this myself,” said Annuar who is also the Umno information chief.

He also said the case would not affect his bid for the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) presidency, as it is still at the investigation stage.

“There are certain criteria that disqualify you from contesting the FAM presidency and being under MACC investigation is not one of them,” he pointed out.

On Tuesday, Jan 31, Mara announced the immediate suspension of Annuar as its chairman and also for its subsidiary Pelaburan Mara Bhd (PMB).

The unanimous decision was made at a special meeting of the Mara Council chaired by Council Member Yusof Yakob.

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.
