More charges related to the Jana Wibawa scheme might be laid soon, said the MACC, which has already charged two individuals so far.

MACC chief commissioner Azam Baki said there were “three or four” more investigation papers being prepared for the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

“I do not rule out that there are others, including (political) leaders who are being investigated,” he told reporters in Putrajaya today.

When asked specifically if Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin would be charged, Azam said he was unable to comment as investigations are ongoing.

“Investigations against him are proceeding normally… I leave it to the attorney-general to decide once the case is completed,” he said.

Over the past two days, the MACC had laid charges against Segambut Bersatu division deputy chief Adam Radlan Adam Muhammad in two separate courts in the Klang Valley for soliciting and receiving bribes related to the Jana Wibawa scheme.

Yesterday, the MACC also charged company director Teo Wee Cheng at the Johor Bahru courts with soliciting and receiving bribes related to the same scheme.

Former Bersatu information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan, who was charged in court on Tuesday with soliciting and receiving bribes, claimed that his party was being subjected to selective prosecution.

When asked about this, Azam denied the allegation, stressing that the MACC acted professionally on seven complaints that it received.

“We are not a tool of any political party. Our investigations are based on complaints and information. There is no selective prosecution,” he said.
