KLANG: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is expected to be charged with money laundering at the Shah Alam Sessions Court on Monday (March 13).

It is believed the Bersatu president and former prime minister is being hauled to court in regards to funds in his party's coffers.

Last week, the Pagoh MP was slapped with multiple charges for graft and money laundering at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court.

He was charged with four counts of abuse of power involving RM232.5mil as well two counts of money laundering involving RM195mil.

The charges were framed under Section 23(1) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act 2009 and the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Illegal Activities Act 2001 respectively.

The 75-year-old claimed trial to all six charges.

It is believed that the upcoming charge will be framed under the 2001 Act.

Security will be heavy at the Shah Alam Court premises where scores of Bersatu members and Muhyiddin's supporters are expected to gather.
