KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission officers today conducted a search at the office of Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) chairman Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad at Jalan Stesen Sentral here over the MACC investigation into cases related to Felda Investment Corporation (FIC).
Mohd Isa, who was chairman of Felda and later Felda Global Ventures Berhad prior to his appointment as chairman of SPAD, is being held under remand after he was arrested on Tuesday over the probe. FIC is a subsidiary of Felda.
MACC chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad said the search at the Mohd Isa’s SPAD office was the normal process following the arrest of any individual for alleged corruption.
He said the investigation was on the purchase of two hotels by FIC, one in Kensington, London, and the other in Kuching..
“The investigating officers are working hard on the cases and we will determine whether any other action needs to be taken. I do not want to comment further,” he said to reporters after witnessing the taking of an anti-corruption pledge at the International Islamic University of Malaysia, here.
