MACC is still looking for Muhyiddin's son-in-law, says Azam

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is actively communicating with authorities to locate businessman Datuk Seri Muhammad Adlan Berhan.

Its chief commissioner, Tan Sri Azam Baki, said they are still unable to locate Muhammad Adlan’s whereabouts overseas.

“Once he is located, we will proceed to charge him in court,” he said after attending the National Anti-Corruption Summit 2024 on Thursday (Feb 28).

When asked if the MACC would initiate prosecution in absentia against Muhammad Adlan, Azam did not rule out the possibility.

However, he added that such a move would be “the last resort” if all avenues have been exhausted to track down the son-in-law of former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Earlier, Azam attended the summit that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim launched.

On Feb 22, Azam said that several criminal breach of trust (CBT) charges had been prepared for Muhammad Adlan.

On Aug 9, Seri Muhammad Adlan denied that he was trying to evade authorities.

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