PUTRAJAYA: Former Sabah chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman has arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters here to give his statement on various reports made against him.

Musa, who was driven in a Toyota Vellfire, was seen entering the gates of the MACC compound at about 11.45am.

It is learnt that he was accompanied by at least one lawyer.

Musa’s presence was reportedly requested by the MACC to help shed light on several allegations made against him, including an attempt to buy the allegiance of an assemblyman following the 14th general election in May; dubious timber deals involving the Sabah Forestry Department; and alleged misappropriation related to the Pan Borneo Highway project in Sabah.

The veteran leader, who was sworn in as Sibuga assemblyman in Kota Kinabalu on Wednesday, has been asked to assist in corruption and abuse of power investigations which date as far back as 2009. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
