KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The case against former Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal (pic) for alleged misappropriation of rural developments funds in Sabah involving RM1.5bil has been dropped due to lack of evidence.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Liew Vui Keong told the Dewan Negara Tuesday (Aug 28) that the investigation against Shafie, now the Sabah Chief Minister, was conducted from April 21 last year under Section 17a of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act 2009.
