PUTRAJAYA – Former Prasarana non-executive chairman Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman was detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) yesterday on two charges of abuse of power.

It is learnt that the Pasir Salak MP was arrested after he presented himself for questioning at the MACC headquarters here yesterday afternoon but was released on oral bail (jaminan mulut), which is usually accorded to government servants in the evening.

He was, in fact, supposed to have been charged yesterday itself. However, the MACC is still awaiting instructions from the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

Details of the charges are not immediately available but Tajuddin has been previously accused of interfering with Prasarana’s operations and business dealings, where allegations of conflict of interest had surfaced.

The Vibes is awaiting confirmation from the MACC.

KUALA LUMPUR, May 28 — Former Prasarana non-executive chairman Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman was detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) yesterday on two charges of abuse of power.

Several news portals reported that the Pasir Salak MP and Umno election director was detained after he arrived at the MACC headquarters to have his statement recorded yesterday.

He has since been released on oral bail.

A source told Malay Mail that the investigation is linked to the raid at Prasarana office in January this year.

Online news portal The Vibes said Tajuddin was supposed to have been charged yesterday itself. However, the MACC is still awaiting instructions from the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

Details of the charges are not immediately available but Tajuddin has been previously accused of interfering with Prasarana’s operations and business dealings, where allegations of conflict of interest had surfaced.

On May 5, MACC announced that it has concluded its probe on the power abuse issue in Prasarana Malaysia Bhd.

MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki said the investigation paper has been submitted to the attorney general’s (AG) office two weeks ago and MACC is now awaiting for the next course of action.
