Last update: 10/10/2018

PUTRAJAYA, Oct 10  (Bernama) — Former deputy prime minister  Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has left the Malaysian Anti-Corruption  Commission headquarters here after being quizzed for about eight hours today.

The questioning is said to be to assist the agency’s probe into alleged misappropriation of funds belonging to a foundation.

Ahmad Zahid, who arrived at the MACC HQ at 9.20 am, left the premises at 5.40 pm.

When swarmed by local and foreign journalists,  the UMNO president said:” I have to come again.”

About an hour before that, his daughter  Datuk Nurulhidayah was seen leaving the MACC HQ  but there were no signs of his step-brother Datuk Seri Mohamad Nasaee Ahmad Tarmizi, who was also seen entering the premises this morning.

Ahmad Zahid  in a Twitter post on Monday had said that he would give his full cooperation to MACC regarding the probe. The MACC  had also recorded a statement from him  on the same matter in July.

Local and foreign journalists had camped outside the MACC HQ since 8am to cover the unfolding events.
