KFA graft case: We called in Muhammad Sanusi to complete our probe, says MACC

PUTRAJAYA: Graft investigators are in the final stages of their investigation in relation to allegations of RM6mil corruption involving the Kedah Football Association (KFA), says the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Its senior director of investigation Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hashim said, however, details of the investigation could not be made public as the information was sensitive and confidential.

"To complete our probe, the MACC called Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Noor to be present at our headquarters today," he said on Thursday (Jan 11).

Muhammad Sanusi, who arrived at 8.30am, left the MACC premises at 11.30am.

On Tuesday (Jan 9), it was reported that graft investigators were expected to call a Mentri Besar over the matter.

On Jan 5, four individuals including the chief executive officer of the Kedah Football Association (KFA) were remanded as graft officers looked into allegations they had sought and accepted bribes amounting to more than RM6mil.

On Monday (Jan 8), Muhammad Sanusi was quoted in news reports as alleging that he was the target behind claims of corruption in the KFA.

Muhammad Sanusi, the KFA president, claimed the recent arrest of four individuals was only to create a case and cast his administration in a bad light.

"I am the actual target. For months, they have been looking for a case against me. (But) you can see the truth. Sanusi has no case (against him).

"But they still create one, including this perception that there is a lot of corruption going on in Kedah. Even football (here) also has corruption," he was reported to have said.

He also said that law enforcement agencies should not be used as a tool to bring down those in different political factions from the unity government.
