Former Federal Territories minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor has been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
A white Toyota Camry said to be ferrying the former Umno secretary-general was seen entering the MACC’s headquarters this afternoon at around 3.15pm.
The vehicle managed to dodge the swarm of media personnel gathered at the MACC headquarters in anticipation of Tengku Adnan’s arrival.
The Umno politician is said to have entered through a separate entrance from the main lobby.
“Yes, he was arrested at 3.25pm this afternoon,” confirmed MACC’s Deputy Chief Commissioner (Operations) Datuk Azam Baki.
He added that Tengku Adnan, who is also known as Ku Nan, will be spending the night in MACC’s holding room.
The 67-year-old will be presented at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court at 2.30pm tomorrow.
The MACC will be jointly charging him and businessman Datuk Tan Eng Boon over dubious land deals involving Kuala Lumpur City Hall on Thursday (Nov 15).
