PUTRAJAYA: Former Felda chairman Tan Sri Shahrir Abd Samad and ex-Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan will be charged in court tomorrow under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 (AMLATFPUAA) 2001.

In a statement, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said that the two men were arrested today, and that it has received the green light to charge Shahrir and Ahmad at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court at 9am tomorrow.

The MACC said Shahrir, who is Johor Baru Umno division chief, will face one charge while Ahmad, who is the Pontian Member of Parliament, will face two charges under the AMLATFPUAA 2001.

"Shahrir was arrested at 11.22am and Ahmad at 10.10am at the MACC headquarters here after they turned up to complete the final investigation process today," said the MACC.

The two, however, were released on MACC bail. Details of their cases will be released tomorrow after the charges had been read in court, MACC added.
