Penang undersea tunnel project: Guan Eng back at MACC again

07 Aug 2020 / 07:58 H.

PUTRAJAYA: Former Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng again presented himself at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters here today, believed to be in connection with the RM6.3 billion Penang undersea tunnel project.

The former Penang chief minister was seen entering the MACC grounds in a white Vellfire at about 9.10 pm.

The Bagan Member of Parliament had previously been called up three times to give statements regarding the case.

Earlier reports stated that investigations into the case were in the final phase, while MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki was quoted to have said that investigation papers on the case were expected to be submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers in the near future.

On June 30, the MACC detained a former senior official of the Penang Port Commission (PPC) to assist with investigations into elements of corruption in the undersea tunnel project.

Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, as well as several current and former state executive council members, were also called to provide their statements to the MACC regarding the mega project. -Bernama
