KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has concluded its investigation into a case involving Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) chairman Tan Sri Annuar Musa.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Senator Datuk Paul Low Seng Kuan said the investigation papers have been handed over to the Deputy Public Prosecutor's office for scrutiny and a decision.

Low said this in a written reply to Mohd Hanipa Maidin (Amanah-Sepang) in Parliament today.

To another question on whether Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim has been called for questioning, Low said the MACC found no need to question the former.

MACC had previously announced that it had begun investigating allegations of misappropriation and abuse of power against the Ketereh Member of Parliament, just after he had been asked to go on leave as chairman of Mara and Pelaburan Mara Bhd with immediate effect.

The issue that Mara subsidiaries had allegedly been financing the Kelantan Football Association (FA) was highlighted by the Tunku Mahkota Johor on Jan 12.
