PETALING JAYA: The Penang High Court’s decision to acquit Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng and businesswoman Phang Li Koon over the alleged conversion of land status and purchase of a bungalow below market value is a “shocker” to the anti-graft agency.

In a brief statement, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said it was not behind the decision to withdraw the case, pointing out that this was made by the Attorney General’s Chambers.
