LIKE AG, MACC NOW NAJIB'S POLITICAL TOOL: GUAN ENG ARRESTED, TO BE CHARGED ON 2 COUNTS OF CORRUPTION
GEORGE TOWN - Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
Lim will be charged with two counts of corruption tomorrow, in relation to investigations over his purchase of a house for RM2.8 million, which was linked to the sale of state land in Taman Manggis.
Police and MACC officers had arrived as early as 3pm at the state government’s offices at Komtar here, amid rumours that the DAP secretary-general would be detained.
Mewnhile, according to The Star, the MACC had issued a warrant for the arrest of Lim.
Penang Agriculture, Agro-based Industry, Rural Development and Health Committee chairman Dr Afif Bahardin tweeted at about 5.50pm Wednesday that Lim would be taken to the MACC office soon.
"Arrest warrant has been issued to Chief Minister by MACC officers, he will be taken to MACC HQ anytime soon #penang," Dr Afif said.
Earlier, it was reported that officers from MACC were at the Penang Chief Minister’s office in Komtar while Lim was chairing a meeting of the state executive councillors.
At 4.55pm, five to eight officers arrived at Lim’s office on Level 28. They entered a meeting room and waited inside.
It is learnt that the weekly state exco meeting was still going on at press time and there is a possibility that the officers are waiting to arrest Lim, who is DAP secretary general.
In a statement on May 25, the MACC said it has completed its probe into Lim’s Pinhorn Road bungalow purchase and submitted the investigation papers to Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali.
The MACC had also said appropriate legal action would be taken if the A-G was satisfied with the explanation given by the anti-graft body in its investigation papers.
It was reported that Lim has been under investigation by the MACC for alleged corrupt practices involving the purchase of the bungalow on July 28 last year.
