The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) seized documents from Malacca Chief Minister Idris Haron's office in a surprise visit yesterday, the New Straits Times reported.
The CM was also questioned during the raid which lasted four hours, the daily reported.
The anti-graft body left with "several boxes" of evidence to facilitate an ongoing investigation on a civil servant who "also had links to the chief minister's office", it said.
The civil servant's bank account containing millions of ringgit have also been frozen, the daily reported.
The raid was conducted by a team from the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya, it said.
Met at an event last night, Idris (photo) said the MACC came to set a date to complete investigations into arrests of civil servants in Malacca.
"I will let you know when it happens," he reportedly said.
The raid happened amid MACC's swoop on civil servants, including the remand of a federal ministry secretary-general.
The MACC seized about RM5 million in cash and gold bars in the secretary-general's case, which also saw two of his sons remanded.
