MACC denies arresting Syed Saddiq

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today denied arresting former Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman (pix) after he presented himself at the MACC headquarters today to give his statement to assist the probe into his missing cash.
