Muhyiddin's son-in-law to be charged for CBT, says MACC chief


KUALA LUMPUR: Several criminal breach of trust (CBT) charges have been prepared for the son-in-law of former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, says Tan Sri Azam Baki.

"I can't remember the exact details but we have already prepared some charges. If I am not mistaken, it's a few charges for CBT," the commission's chief told reporters after attending the 10th Certified Integrity Officer Programme Convocation Ceremony at Kuala Lumpur World Trade Centre (WTC) Thursday (Feb 22).

On Aug 9, Datuk Seri Muhammad Adlan Berhan, the son-in-law of Muhyiddin, denied that he was trying to evade authorities.

His lawyer, Datuk Dr Baljit Singh Sidu, said that his client categorically rejected that he was "a fugitive on the run."

Baljit said that his client left Malaysia legally and likened the previous MACC statement as an attempt to discredit and humiliate his client.

Azam added that investigations on Muhyiddin's son-in-law had been fully completed and MACC was waiting to charge Muhammad Adlan.

"However, it cannot be completed as he has not returned to the country," added Azam.
