MACC to Prosecute Muhyiddin’s Son-in-Law for CBT Upon Return

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is poised to press charges of criminal breach of trust (CBT) against Muhyiddin’s son-in-law. MACC chief Tan Sri Azam Baki announced this, stating that the graftbusters have meticulously prepared several counts of CBT charges against Datuk Seri Muhammad Adlan Berhan.

Preparation of Charges

Azam made these remarks after attending the 10th Certified Integrity Officer Programme Convocation Ceremony held at the Kuala Lumpur World Trade Centre (WTC). Although Azam did not recall specific details, he disclosed that preparations for multiple CBT charges against Muhammad Adlan had been completed. He emphasized the commission’s readiness to pursue legal action against Muhyiddin’s son-in-law.

Awaiting the Return of the Accused

Despite completing investigations into Muhammad Adlan, MACC has refrained from initiating legal proceedings due to his absence from the country. Azam stressed the necessity of Muhammad Adlan’s return before charges could be formally filed. The delay in prosecution is solely contingent upon his presence.

Response from Muhammad Adlan

On August 9, Muhammad Adlan refuted claims of evading authorities, categorically denying any attempt to flee legal obligations. His legal representative, Datuk Dr. Baljit Singh Sidu, asserted that Muhammad Adlan’s departure from Malaysia was lawful. Baljit condemned prior MACC statements for purportedly tarnishing his client’s reputation. He defended Muhammad Adlan against accusations of being a “fugitive on the run,” stating that such claims were unfounded and aimed at discrediting his client.

In summary, MACC’s intention to charge Muhyiddin’s son-in-law underscores its commitment to combat corruption and uphold accountability. The pending legal proceedings against Muhammad Adlan highlight the significance of adherence to legal obligations and due process, ensuring fair and just outcomes in matters of alleged misconduct.
