KUALA LUMPUR, May 3 ― Kinabatangan MP Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin was today charged with receiving a total of RM2.8 million bribe in one week in June 2015 when he was director of Felcra Berhad then.

Dressed plainly in a black suit, Bung Moktar entered the dock shortly before 9am. The low-key proceedings ended just 10 minutes later.

To each of the three charges read aloud under Section 17(a) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009, Bung Moktar calmly said, “claim trial”.

The Sessions Court granted bail of RM100,000 with one surety and also ordered the Sabah Umno leader to surrender his passport until the end of the trial.

UMNO’S Kinabatangan MP Bung Moktar Radin today confirmed that he and his wife had been questioned by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for alleged corruption.

He told The Malaysian Insight that he was summoned by anti-graft officers in Kota Kinabalu while his actress wife Zizie Ezzete was questioned in Kuala Lumpur.

The outspoken MP and his wife were held for several hours and had their statements recorded by MACC officers, and were released later in the day.

“I was summoned to the MACC office in Kota Kinabalu and my wife to the office in Kuala Lumpur.

“I was released after questioning and MACC will proceed to charge me in court in Kuala Lumpur this Friday.”

It is understood that Bung Mokhtar and his wife had been detained to facilitate an investigation into alleged graft amounting several millions of ringgit and linked to his former role as Felcra chairman.

An MACC source earlier told The Malaysian Insight that the investigation against the couple involves millions of ringgit.

“Yes, the MP was a chairman of a government agency when BN was the federal government,” said the source.

MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Azam Baki has confirmed the arrest but refused to provide details.
