PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) needs to explain why it dropped the corruption cases against former Felda board member Noor Ehsanuddin Mohd Harun Narrashi, says Transparency International Malaysia (TI-M).

Its president, Muhammad Mohan, said the move to withdraw 29 corruption charges against Ehsanuddin had raised a lot of questions from members of the public.

“The 29 charges were withdrawn after MACC studied his defence statement. The question is why was this not looked into when he was charged in the first place.

“On the face of it, the mere fact that these were ‘advances’ or ‘advances that have been repaid’ does not make a transaction any less corrupt as originally alleged as ‘advances’ are part of ‘gratification’ under the MACC Act,” he said.

Yesterday, it was reported that Ehsanuddin was acquitted by the Kuala Lumpur sessions court on May 21.
