KUALA LUMPUR:  Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has given his statement to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in connection with investigations into funds of RM300 million linked to the party, according to MACC sources.
The sources said the Perikatan Nasional chairman had his statement recorded at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya yesterday morning.
