The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) says it has not let former minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor off the hook following his discharge by the High Court today over a bribery case involving RM1 million.

The anti-graft body said it would re-submit investigation papers to the attorney-general after following up on a new development in the case, as mentioned by prosecutor Julia Ibrahim in court today.

Julia did not give details of the development, but said it was a complaint made against one of the witnesses in the case.

“MACC will begin investigation of the new development and, once complete, will re-submit investigation papers to the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) for consideration,” MACC said in a statement, hours after the Kuala Lumpur High Court gave Tengku Mansor a discharge not amounting to an acquittal for a charge of accepting a RM1 million bribe from a businessman in 2013.

Tengku Adnan was charged in November 2018 with receiving a RM1 million bribe from Tan Eng Boon through a Public Bank cheque belonging to Pekan Nenas Industries Sdn Bhd.

MACC said the court’s decision today had not freed Tengku Adnan of the charge.

It said the decision to allow him a discharge not amounting to an acquittal meant MACC could still bring charges against Tengku Adnan with the approval of the AGC.
