The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today denied barring former finance minister Lim Guan Eng from travelling to any state in the country.

MACC chief commissioner Azam Baki said there might have been a mistake when the DAP secretary-general arrived at the Kota Kinabalu airport yesterday which caused him to be delayed for about half any hour.

“MACC only applied to impose restrictions on Lim from going abroad,” he told reporters after officiating a programme in Melaka today.

Lim earlier said he was barred from entering Sabah by the immigration department following restrictions by MACC.

On the issue of illegal durian farming in Raub, Pahang, Azam said he had instructed Pahang MACC to obtain more information on the matter from the Raub District and Land Office and the Pahang state secretary’s office.
