PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has taken to social media to clear the air after swirling speculation that he had been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

The former prime minister said that reports that he had been arrested were not true.

"I would like to clarify that the news of me being arrested at a golf course today (March 8) was fake news spread by a fake portal.

"On Wednesday, I had attended a few meetings on the pending Bersatu general assembly due to start on Friday (March 10)," he said on Facebook on Wednesday.

However, The Perikatan Nasional chairman confirmed however that he had been summoned to MACC headquarters at 11am on Thursday (March 9).

Earlier, speculation was rife that a senior Perikatan leader was due to be arrested by MACC soon.

Another report then claimed that Muhyiddin had been arrested while playing golf.
