High Court grants Bersatu leave to challenge MACC

THE High Court in Kuala Lumpur today allowed Bersatu’s application for leave to commence judicial review proceedings to challenge the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) decision to freeze its bank accounts and the travel ban by the Immigration Department against its president Muhyiddin Yassin.

Judge Ahmad Kamal Md Shahid ruled that the applicants had passed the threshold to commence judicial review proceedings and there are triable issues regarding the impugned freezing order and travel ban.
