PUTRAJAYA: Former Felda Global Ventures (FGV) chairman Tan Sri Isa Samad remained non-committal when pressed over his statement to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today.
Stressing that it was “normal” for board members to be called up for questioning, Isa did not deny nor admit to any wrongdoings claimed in the FGV tussle.
“All other board members are also being investigated. I believe I’m the last one.
“As chairman, being called up to give statements is a normal thing,” he said after his four-hour session with the commission here, today.
Isa, dressed in a grey suit, arrived at the MACC headquarters at 9.40am this morning together with his wife, Puan Sri Bibi Sharliza Mohd Khalid.
He said he did not surrender any evidence to the MACC and only provided his explanations.
Asked if he believed he was innocent, Isa said: “I can’t say, I don’t want to jump the gun. I leave it to the MACC to make the decision.
“How do I know (whether I’m guilty or not)? I replied and gave my statements on what was being asked. That’s all.”
He declined to reveal what the allegations against him were, reiterating that it was up to MACC to disclose the matter.
Isa was also asked why his wife was called up, and he merely replied that all those whose names were mentioned would be asked to have their statements recorded.
