KUALA LUMPUR—The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has found both Former Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Former Prasarana Chairman Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman clean of any wrong doing, despites claims that they were allegedly involved in corruption and abuse of power.
Muhyiddin Yassin was accused of offering lucrative positions in government-linked firms to the UMNO leaders for political support, which his critics deemed to be a form of bribery and corruption. The allegations were based on an audio recording which went viral on social media alleging an attempt to entice Umno leaders to join Bersatu by promising government positions.
In a written reply to Teo Nie ching, Kulai Member of Parliament from Pakatan Harapan, De facto Law Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said, MACC had completed its investigation into the audio clip purportedly of Muhyiddin making the offer, and concluded “there was no element of wrongdoing under the MACC Act 2009.”
Meanwhile, MACC has also cleared Tajuddin Abdul Rahman from any wrongdoing and has classified the power abuse investigation as “no further action”.

Tajuddin was under investigation for alleged use of  his position to make decisions favourable to a company linked to a family member.

He was arrested in May 2021 (and later released on bail) to assist in an investigation linked to the appointment of his son-in-law to Prasarana.
