PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has obtained new leads on an investigation into alleged illegal practices by a former minister in the purchase of real estate in Australia by Mara Incorporated Sdn Bhd.
MACC deputy chief commissioner Datuk Azam Baki said the investigation would be resumed following new information and evidence obtained.
“We will call up more witnesses to assist in the investigation soon.
“We will record statements not only from those in Malaysia, but overseas as well,” he said in a statement yesterday.
He also did not rule out the possibility that arrests would be made.
MACC had previously recorded the statement of Mara chairman Tan Sri Annuar Musa over the same investigation.
Annuar also handed over several documents relevant to the case.
The issue came to light after Australian newspaper The Age claimed in a report that several senior Mara officials and a former politician had spent millions from Malaysian government funds to buy an apartment block, known as Dudley International House, in Melbourne.
