PETALING JAYA: PKR is using an alleged money-laundering case said to involve Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman to divert attention from allegations involving Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, said Sabah Barisan Nasional secretary Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan.
Abdul Rahman, who is Kota Belud MP, said the query by PKR vice-president and Batu MP Tian Chua in the Dewan Rakyat on the status of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's (MACC) on Musa's case was a “classic diversion tactic” by PKR.
“It (the query) was politically motivated to divert attention from Anwar's alleged accumulation of RM3bil when he was Deputy Prime Minister,” he said in a statement yesterday.
Former Bank Negara assistant governor Datuk Abdul Murad Khalid had alleged that Anwar had amassed about RM3bil during his tenure as deputy prime minister and finance minister.
Whistleblower portal Sarawak Report had linked Musa and his brother Datuk Seri Anifah Aman, the Foreign Minister, to a timber graft scandal.
Abdul Rahman said he had made his own enquiries with the MACC and found the allegations against Musa to be unfounded.
