THE corruption case involving Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman and timber trade “deal maker” Michael Chia has been handed over to the Attorney-General’s (A-G) Chambers.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the probe into the case had been completed and the investigation papers had been passed over to the A-G Chambers.
“The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has investigated the case and had full cooperation from Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC),” he said in a written reply to Tian Chua (PKR-Batu).
The MACC probe began after Chia was arrested in Hong Kong in 2008.
Musa had denied in April the corruption allegations linking him to the timber graft scandal.
