PETALING JAYA, Oct 17 — Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has been notified to surrender himself to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) by tomorrow, said Datuk Lokman Noor Adam.

The Umno supreme council member revealed that the former deputy prime minister received the notice at 1.45pm, in which he was instructed to present himself at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya.

“He is to present himself at 3pm tomorrow and expected to be charged the following day on Friday,” he said in a statement today.

Last week, the MACC summoned Ahmad Zahid for three straight days of marathon questioning over alleged funds misappropriation at a charity run by his family.

Anti-graft authorities reportedly grilled Ahmad Zahid over seven cases, including the case in which he allegedly used funds belonging to Yayasan Akal Budi to settle credit card payments for himself and his wife between 2014 and 2015.
