Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak had earlier advised Dzulkifli to remain steadfast and to not succumb to underhanded tactics aimed at undermining him.

Last year, the MACC moved against senior officials of the Sabah Water Department and recovered more than RM50mil in cash – the largest seizure in the country.

Three people have been charged in court so far in connection with the money-laundering case, also popularly known as the Sabah Watergate scandal.

As of July this year, the MACC had investigated 56 cases in Sabah which mostly dealt with false claims for projects which were purportedly never carried out.

Among the high profile cases MACC recently tackled was the probe into the skimming of up to RM1.5bil in federal projects allocations for the poor in Sabah through the Rural and Regional Development Ministry.

Last Tuesday, the MACC had officially arrested Hamid Apdal, who is the younger brother of Parti Warisan Sabah president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal

The MACC is expected to make more arrests as they sift through some 350 projects that were given to some 60 companies between 2009 and 2015.The money was allegedly stolen from RM7.5bil worth of projects during that period in Sabah.

Many of the projects were allegedly uncompleted or failed to meet specifications though full payments were made to the companies. MACC has so far frozen some RM170mil in bank accounts and assets in some of the companies involved in the project.
