Aside from Opposition leaders, certain Government leaders are also being investigated for corruption, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

“I don’t know the specifics, but I was informed that there were probes involving the Opposition and the government.

“I don’t know their positions, I only asked the authorities and they confirmed that there are investigations,” the Prime Minister said during the weekly Prime Minister’s Question Time (PMQT) in Parliament on Tuesday (March 28).


“Whether or not there are charges, that is up to the authorities, that is the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC),” added Anwar.

Anwar was responding to a supplementary question by Datuk Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff (PN-Rantau Panjang) who asked if there were investigations involving government leaders to ensure no selective prosecution.

Perikatan Nasional leaders have criticised Anwar over alleged political persecution after several of its leaders were implicated in several corruption cases in the previous administration led by Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
