PETALING JAYA: Let the court do its job, Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin said in a tweet after he was detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Wednesday (May 1).

He tweeted the response when his followers asked him on Twitter about his arrest.

The Kinabatangan MP also tweeted: "Insya Allah, the journey of our life is determined by Allah and nothing is excluded, the truth will become true."

Bung Moktar and his wife, Datin Seri Zizie Izette A. Samad, are expected to be charged with corruption on Friday (May 3).

In a statement on Wednesday, the MACC confirmed it arrested the Sabah Umno chief and his actress wife for alleged graft.

It said it had obtained the go-ahead from the Attorney General's Office to charge Bung in his capacity as the former non-executive director of government agency Felcra Bhd, as well as his wife this Friday (May 3).

"The MACC arrested Moktar at 10.50am this morning at the Sabah MACC while Zizie was arrested by the MACC in Putrajaya at 11.15am after they appeared to complete the final investigation process with regards to a corruption case involving Felcra," the statement said.

Both were released a few hours later.
