MACC to probe Idris Haron's sand royalty claims, urges those with evidence to come forward

PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) wants to probe claims of misappropriation of sand royalties in Melaka made by Sungai Udang assemblyman Datuk Seri Idris Haron.

The anti-graft body has called on anyone with information on the matter to come forward, adding that an officer will be sent to meet Idris to get the details of his allegations.

“The MACC views seriously the claims made by Idris that certain parties are monopolising economic projects in Melaka as well as cheating the Federal Government of sand royalties," said the MACC

“If anyone has information or evidence of corruption and misappropriation in this matter, please come forward to assist the MACC,” the commission added in a statement on Thursday (Oct 7).

The MACC added that failure to report any wrongdoing under the MACC Act is liable for punishment under Section 25 of the Act.

Idris reportedly made the claims in a recent TV interview.

On Monday (Oct 4), Idris and three other Melaka assemblymen – Datuk Nor Azman Hassan (Pantai Kundor), Noor Effandi Ahmad (Telok Mas) and Datuk Norhizam Hassan Baktee (Pengkalan Batu) – declared that they had lost confidence in Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali as chief minister.

As a result, Sulaiman lost his majority support and the Melaka state assembly was later dissolved.

Idris was also sacked from Umno because of his actions.
