KUALA LUMPUR: United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has to be present at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission headquarters in Putrajaya on Wednesday (Oct 10) to assist in a probe, according to a source.

The source said Ahmad Zahid, who is the former deputy prime minister, has been asked to be there at 10am.

When contacted, MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Azam Baki confirmed this but declined to elaborate.

Ahmad Zahid, meanwhile, tweeted on his official account that he would give his full cooperation to the MACC.

He said he was only giving a statement and advised his supporters not to gather at the MACC headquarters on Wednesday.

Last July, Ahmad Zahid gave statements twice to the MACC to assist its investigation into the alleged misappropriation of Yayasan Akal Budi funds.
