PUTRAJAYA: Two Selangor Pakatan Rakyat assemblymen had their statements taken by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Com-mission (MACC) to assist in investigations into sand mining permits.

Shuhaimi Shafie and Amirudin Shari, the assemblymen for Sri Muda and Batu Caves respectively, arrived at the MACC headquarters at 3pm yesterday and were questioned for about four hours.

The two arrived with their lawyers Ahmad Nizam Hamid and Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, supporters and family members.

Shuhaimi and Amirudin had received letters from the commission on Monday instructing them to assist in investigations under Section 17(a) of the MACC Act.

Section 17(a) states that a person commits an offence, if being an agent, corruptly accepts or attempts to accept any gratification for himself or another person as an inducement or reward.

MACC director Mustafar Ali confirmed the commission had recorded statements from the duo but declined to elaborate.

He also said the two men were not arrested and were called in to have their statements recorded.

Ahmad Nizam said statements taken from his clients were over sand mining permits, adding that the two assemblymen were asked by the MACC to return on Monday to resume having their statements recorded.
