PKR’s Sekijang MP lodges report with MACC over poaching allegations

SEGAMAT: PKR lawmaker Natrah Ismail has lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over her allegations of being offered to switch sides.

In a statement, the Sekijang MP said she lodged the report on Sunday (March 7) over an attempt to get her to support Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin with promises of benefits.

Natrah claimed that the incident happened on March 3 involving two individuals including a “Datuk Seri”.

“I made the report based on Section 25 of the MACC Act 2009 over obligation to report an act of corruption and I do hope the anti-graft body would investigate the matter immediately.

“I will like to reiterate once more that I have no interest in giving my support to Muhyiddin as I would not betray PKR, its leaders and most importantly, the voters in Sekijang constituency, ” she said in a statement.

She also advised certain quarters who were still trying to lure PKR lawmakers and the Opposition in general, to stop.

“Your minority government that you are trying to save is almost at its end and to the government, I have one thing to say. Fight!” she said.

On Saturday (March 6), the MACC had urged Natrah to lodge a report following allegations that she had been enticed to switch allegiances.

"We would like her or other individuals with knowledge of the matter to lodge a report with us if it is truly seen as an act of corruption.

"The report will be in line with Section 25 of the MACC Act 2009 that touches on one's duty to report bribery transactions," it said in a statement, adding that MACC is prepared to investigate the matter immediately.
