Perak PKR deputy chief MA Tinagaran was detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) this morning over a development project in Perak.
Meanwhile, Perak PKR chairman Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak expressed hopes that no quarters would make any assumption at this time.
“I was informed that Tinagaran was called by the MACC to assist in an investigation today.
“We hope that all parties will remain calm and will not engage in any speculation at the moment,” he said in a statement.
However, Farhash offered no further details and it is still unclear at the time of writing whether the deputy chairman has been released or is still in MACC custody.
He urged Tinagaran’s family, friends and supporters to exercise patience over the matter.
“We hope the investigation will be conducted transparently, and that the legal process will proceed smoothly without any intervention,” he added.
