PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is back to face anti-graft investigators, his third time this week.

The former deputy prime minister and Umno president arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters at 9.18am Friday (Oct 12) in a white SUV.

This is the fourth time that he is returning to MACC to answer questions over alleged misappropriation of Yayasan Akal Budi funds, a family run foundation of which he is chairman.

On Wednesday, he spent eight hours being questioned.

Dr Ahmad Zahid was first questioned on the issue on July 3.

He was asked then to explain claims that RM800,000 belonging to the foundation was used to pay off credit card bills.

The foundation was set up to receive and administer funds to help the poor as well as provide Islamic education.
