Sekijang member of parliament Natrah Ismail lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) yesterday regarding an alleged attempt by certain parties to procure her support for Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
Natrah, who is a Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) MP, lodged the report at the MACC Segamat branch office.
“Today I lodged a report with the MACC regarding an attempt to procure my support for Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, with the promise of the benefits I would gain in return for that support.
“The incident happened on March 3, and involved two individuals, including a ‘Datuk Seri’,” she said in a statement yesterday.
Natrah said the report was lodged under Section 25 of the MACC Act 2009 regarding the duty to report any attempt of bribery and hoped the MACC would investigate it immediately.
Yesterday, Natrah was advised to lodge a report with the MACC following claims that there were individuals who allegedly attempted to bribe her to leave PKR.
The MACC informed Natrah that she would need to lodge a report with the commission if she assumed it was a corrupt act.
Allegations that two individuals met with Natrah and tried to bribe her to switch allegiances from PKR with an offer of RM10 million and a position had gone viral on social media previously.
Natrah said she was not keen in supporting Muhyiddin and would not betray her party and her Sekijang voters.
“To those still trying to buy over support of PKR MPs or opposition MPs in general, stop it.”
Natrah further claimed that the minority government they were trying to save is on the brink of collapse.
