Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, the president of Bersatu and a former prime minister, is likely to be apprehended by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today before being charged in court. Party information chairman Datuk Razali Idris, who stated that Muhyiddin was summoned to MACC headquarters, reaffirmed the matter earlier today.

“As the Dewan Rakyat is in session and Bersatu was scheduled to hold elections tomorrow, we view this as an injustice. In the same news conference, he also claimed the objective of the MACC’s action against Muhyiddin was to eliminate Perikatan Nasional (PN) and Bersatu’s chances of running in the forthcoming state elections.

Thus far, the Jana Wibawa stimulus project has resulted in charges against Bersatu information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan and businessman Adam Radlan.

In response to the Covid-19 outbreak, an extraordinary crisis that persisted throughout Muhyiddin’s administration, the government launched the Jana Wibawa programme to assist Bumiputera contractors.

Anwar Ibrahim, the current PM, said that there had been a procedural error in the handling of RM600 billion in public monies shortly after assuming office.

Bersatu deputy president Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu, Bersatu secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin, party supreme council member Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, and Youth chief Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal were among the supporters who were spotted today assembling in front of MACC’s Putrajaya headquarters.

Yesterday, Muhyiddin announced that the news of him being arrested at a golf course was untrue and had been spread by a fake news portal. Prior to that, The Star reported that rumours of the possibility of a PN leader being arrested in the near future had been circulating amongst the public.

No further updates have been reported at the time of writing.
