Seberang Jaya assemblyman Dr Afif Bahardin presented himself at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters here today, believed to be in relation to the Penang underwater tunnel project investigation.

Prior to this, Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow and several other state executive councillors were also reported to have recorded their statements with the MACC over the mega project which involves an estimated total cost of RM6.3 billion.

Afif, a staunch supporter of former PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, was forced to resign from his position in the Penang state government on the 4th of March 2020.

A month later, Afif was suspended from PKR pending an investigation by the party’s disciplinary board. He was subsequently sacked from the party on the 24th of June 2020 and announced that he would be sitting as a Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) representative in the state legislative assembly.


PETALING JAYA: Seberang Jaya assemblyman Dr Afif Bahardin presented himself at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters here today, believed to be in relation to the Penang underwater tunnel project investigation.

Met by members of media before entering the premises at about 2 pm, Afif was quoted by Bernama as saying it was understood he was called up in his capacity as a state executive councillor from 2013 to 2020.




He said the notice from MACC was received on Monday, and this was the first time he had been called by the MACC with regard to the case.

“I do not know what questions will be asked, I will see,” he said, adding that the MACC had so far not requested for any documents from him.

Prior to this, Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow and several other state executive councillors were also reported to have recorded their statements with the MACC over the mega project which involves an estimated total cost of RM6.3 billion.

Afif, a staunch supporter of former PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, was forced to resign from his position in the Penang state government on the 4th of March 2020.

In announcing this, Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said Afif had tendered his resignation letter on the same day.

A month later, Afif was suspended from PKR pending an investigation by the party’s disciplinary board.

He was subsequently sacked from the party on the 24th of June 2020 and announced that he would be sitting as a Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) representative in the state legislative assembly.

But when asked if he had applied to be a member of PPBM, Afif refused to respond.
