Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has alleged that former Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Mahadzir Khalid had offered PKR Kulim assemblyman Lim Soo Nee a bribe to crossover.
The bribe was offered by Mahadzir at a Sebarang Jaya hotel in December last year.
However, Anwar said what Mahadzir did not know was that there was an Anti Corruption Agency sting.
“Our assemblyman worked with the ACA. Umno people had approached him repeatedly and offered him money to cross,” he said while debating the Royal Address.
However, Anwar said no action had been taken against the former Kedah Menteri Besar as the officer investigating the case was transfered out.
“The officer told Lim the meeting was the climax to the investigation and action on Mahadzir would follow soon after that,” he said.
Anwar claimed the ACA closed the case following instruction from higher ups.
