Prior to this, it was reported that MACC had frozen Bersatu’s account last month and charged several individuals including former Bersatu information chief Datuk Wan Saiful Wan Jan and Segambut Bersatu division deputy chief Adam Radlan Adam Muhammad with corruption in connection with Jana Wibawa projects to help Bumiputera contractors.

The Jana Wibawa programme was implemented during the time when Muhyiddin was the prime minister to speed up the implementation of projects and boost the country’s economy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The development of the investigation into the case has captured the attention of many local and foreign media practitioners, as well as supporters of Muhyiddin who also flocked to the MACC headquarters since 7 am.
