PETALING JAYA: After filing a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), Sekijang MP Natrah Ismail has lodged a police report to deny allegations on social media that she was offered RM20mil to cross the floor in Parliament.

The police report, filed on Tuesday (March 9) by Natrah at the Segamat district police headquarters, had also asked the police to investigate a special officer attached to a deputy minister, whom she alleged to have made the claims on social media.

According to the police report, she claimed a report was circulating on social media, claiming that an individual named "Datuk Jeevan" had paid her a visit at her home and attempted to bribe her with RM20mil.

"I deny all contents in that report which is clearly untrue and it is a serious slander against me. It is possible that there are certain groups trying to undermine my relationship with 'Datuk Jeevan'," she said in the police report.

"Datuk Jeevan" is an individual said to be attached with a deputy minister, according to her report.

On Sunday (March 7), Natrah lodged an MACC report, alleging she was offered money to switch sides in Parliament.

The PKR MP had claimed the incident, which happened on March 3, had involved two individuals, including a "Datuk Seri".

On Monday (March 8), PKR secretary-general Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said he will seek a meeting with MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki so he could furnish evidence of alleged attempts to buy over Opposition MPs.

He also said the MACC must not be used as a political weapon by the government, adding that the anti-graft body must be quick in conducting investigations once a report is lodged.
