KOTA KINABALU: A summons for Parti Warisan Sabah vice-president Datuk Peter Anthony to report to the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission’s (MACC) headquarters in Putrajaya has been withdrawn.
His lawyer Martin Tommy was informed that MACC had wanted his client to give a statement about a case.
Anthony had gone to the Sabah MACC headquarters here on Tuesday and was initially issued a warrant for him to be present at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya at 8am today.
“I do not know why it was withdrawn. They informed me that the warrant (for Anthony) had been cancelled until further notice.
“I was surprised that they were insistent that Anthony be at MACC headquarters (on Wednesday),” said Tommy, adding that the call (to cancel) came about 90 minutes after they left the Sabah MACC.
Earlier, after receiving the summons at the Sabah MACC office here, Anthony said he was only told to come and assist in investigations.
It is learned that the investigation centred on a 2015 case involving certain contracts carried out at Universiti Malaysia Sabah.
