"He will go the Kuala Lumpur court complex tomorrow," he said when contacted.

Speaking to the press outside MACC headquarters, Muhyiddin said he expected to be charged for seven separate counts.

"I came here to enable the MACC to record my additional statement. I came willingly to assist the investigation despite knowing that it is a political oppression and persecution against me and Bersatu.

"The MACC raised two points namely the JANAWIBAWA Project and Tax Cancellation appeal by Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhari," he said.
