Reportedly, no order to arrest or charge Zahid.
Former deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters for another round of questioning on Yayasan Akal Budi, a charity run by his family, at 9.20am.
He said in a statement posted on Umno supreme council member Datuk Lokman Noor Adam’s Facebook page yesterday that he “accepted” that his good deeds have been classified as corruption and money laundering by authorities.
Clad in a greenish batik shirt, the Umno president was all smiles as he alighted from a white SUV at the lobby of the MACC headquarters, waving at the press who had been there since early morning.
He was seen waiting in the lounge for about 10 minutes before following the MACC officers to the upper level.
Accompanying him was his daughter, Datuk Nurulhidayah Ahmad Zahid, who arrived at 9.35am in a white Range Rover.
Only a smattering of Umno supporters could be seen loitering around the building. This was probably due to Zahid’s instructions for them to stay away from the MACC headquarters.
This is the third time Dr Ahmad Zahid has been summoned by the graft-busters on the welfare foundation case. He was first questioned on the Yayasan issue on July 3.
His other meeting with the MACC was believed to be on investigations into the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).
Reportedly, a high-ranking MACC official had told Malaysiakini that no order has been issued to arrest or charge the Bagan Datuk MP.
