Former finance minister Lim Guan Eng is due for another session with investigators from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), after his almost seven-hour probe today.
His lawyer RSN Rayer told reporters that Lim had turned up for the investigation with the MACC, despite being on sick leave for two days beginning today.
“He came as a witness. Actually, he is not well today. He has a sick leave certificate for two days — today and tomorrow.
“However, since we had received a notice to come, we gave our cooperation by turning up at the MACC building,” Rayer said, before confirming that the investigation centred on the Penang state government’s controversial plan to build an undersea tunnel.
He said Lim will be returning to the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya tomorrow at 10am.
Lim was accompanied by Rayer and a second lawyer, Gobind Singh Deo.
Lim was quizzed from 1.30pm till 6pm today.
