Kinabatangan MP Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin has been arrested by anti-graft officers for alleged corruption amounting to RM3 million.

  • Couple expected to be charged for alleged RM3 million corruption in KL on Friday
  • MP facing three graft charges, wife facing charges for abetment
  • Case believed to be linked to his former role as chairperson of Felcra

His wife, actress Zizie Izette A Samad, was also detained.

It was reported that Bung Moktar was arrested at 10.50am Wednesday (May 1) while his wife was detained at 11.15am.

The two were held after they were called in to have their statements recorded at the Sabah Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office.

Bung Moktar, 59, and Zizie Izette, 41, were released a few hours later after their statements were recorded.

Sources said the two are expected to be charged under the MACC Act 2009 at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court on Friday (May 3).

The MP will reportedly face three graft charges while his wife is set to face charges for abetment.

It is believed the case is linked to Bung Moktar’s former role as the chairperson of Felcra during Barisan Nasional’s administration.

MACC deputy chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki confirmed the case.
