Dr Yusof: Mara to probe allegations against Annuar Musa

PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Annuar Musa (pix) has been suspended as Mara chairman and asked to go on leave pending investigations into allegations made against him, said Mara committee member Datuk Dr Yusof Yacob.

Dr Yusof said Annuar has been asked to go on leave while an internal Mara audit is conducted into allegations on the sponsorship of Kelantan Football Association (Kafa) by two Mara subsidiaries.

"This is a unanimous decision, with the approval from the minister (Rural and Regional Development Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob)," said Dr Yusof after a special meeting of the Mara board of directors on Tuesday morning.

Recently, Johor crown prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim had alleged that a certain "Tan Sri" had forced Mara and its entities to sponsor the Kelantan Red Warriors team.

In a Facebook post on Jan 12, Tunku Ismail also published photographs of documents showing a RM500,000 sponsorship by Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) and an additional RM200,000 by Pelaburan Mara.

Although no individual was mentioned, it was an apparent reference to Annuar, who was also a former president of Kafa.
