Malaysia: ‘Charges soon on Mara’s property purchase in Australia’

The case of Majlis Amanah Rakyat’s (Mara) property purchase in Melbourne will be taken to court soon, said anti-graft chief Datuk Seri Azam Baki, hinting that one of the individuals who may be charged is now residing in Sabah.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner said the deputy public prosecutor had agreed in principle to charge those involved.

“One of the individuals to be charged is said to be residing in Sabah and is in quarantine.

“So, we need to arrange for the right time to charge those involved, ” he said in an interview over its in-house radio station MACC.fm.

However, Azam did not mention how many people would be taken to court over the scandal.

Insisting that the commission was not protecting anyone involved in this case, MACC, he said, was firm and focused in its probe.

“We are just waiting for the time to charge, ” he added.

Previous reports claimed that Mara had overpaid by A$4.75mil (RM14.14mil) for the Dudley International House.
