Umno president Zahid back at MACC for questioning

PUTRAJAYA,. Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters here this morning for further questioning on alleged funds misappropriation at a charity run by his family.

The former deputy prime minister and current Umno president arrived at 9.20am in a white Toyota Land Cruiser and was dressed in a green Baju Melayu with batik motif.

Around 15 supporters were in attendance, believed to be here to show solidarity with Zahid despite his express statement that none should do so.

It is believed that investigators will speak to Ahmad Zahid over the alleged misappropriation of RM800,000 belonging to a welfare foundation managed by his family.

This is the third time MACC has summoned him over the case in which he allegedly used funds belonging to Yayasan Akal Budi to settle credit card payments for himself and his wife between 2014 and 2015.

On Monday Ahmad Zahid tweeted that he would extend full cooperation to the MACC.
