Bersatu protests action against Muhyiddin, insists he is innocent


PUTRAJAYA: Bersatu has protested the action against Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, insisting that he is innocent.

“As supporters of a party that stands for the principles of honesty, integrity, and the rejection of kleptocracy and corruption we will stand with Tan Sri,” said Bersatu supreme council member Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali when met outside the MACC headquarters on Thursday (March 9).

The graft busters are currently investigating allegations that contractors had allegedly deposited RM300mil into the Bersatu party account in return for projects.

Muhyiddin has denied this, calling it political slander intended to smear his reputation as the eighth prime minister.

On Feb 18, Muhyiddin said the MACC had confirmed that he was not a suspect in the ongoing investigations when he was called up to give his statement.

Muhyiddin had also named former finance minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz as the one who had approved the companies taking part in the Jana Wibawa programme, which was launched during the Covid-19 pandemic to assist bumiputra contractors.

Tengku Zafrul has also been questioned by the MACC.

Several Bersatu leaders have already been picked up by the commission.

On March 2, Bersatu treasurer Datuk Seri Mohd Salleh Bajuri was remanded but released on March 3.

Prior to that, former Bersatu information chief and Tasek Gelugor MP Datuk Wan Saiful Wan Jan and Segambut division deputy chief Adam Radlan Adam Muhammad were charged in court.

They were alleged to have collected funds from the award of projects during the tenure of Muhyiddin as the eighth prime minister.
