PETALING JAYA: Parti Amanah Negara vice-president Senator Datuk Husam Musa took a dig at former PAS ally Idris Ahmad for questioning why he wasn’t hauled up in the probe over the alleged RM90mil in 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) funds which PAS allegedly received.

Husam said he checked with an officer from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to confirm that he had not been called in for questioning.

“I hope Idris Ahmad can be patient,” Husam wrote on his Facebook page on Friday.

Husam, a former PAS vice-president, had been vocal in alleging that PAS had received the RM90mil.

In the Facebook posting, Husam attached a screenshot from the Facebook page of Idris, who is PAS vice-president.

Idris in his posting had pointed out that two individuals had gone to the MACC for questioning before asking why “another” person was not hauled up.

“Where is this other person?” Idris had asked, in an apparent reference to Husam.

On Friday, PAS central committee member Nik Abduh Nik Aziz and former deputy president Datuk Dr Nasharudin Mat Isa were questioned by MACC over the case.

Investigators also recorded a statement from former Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreene­vasan on that day.

Husam said it was his responsibility to the country to convey all the information he had on the case to the authorities.

“In fact, I reckon that some of the related documents are already within the knowledge of the MACC,” Husam wrote.

In remarks which were apparently aimed at Idris, Husam wrote: “Don’t forget which party is being investigated. Don’t end up celebrating at the wrong place and wrong time,” Husam said.
