Malaysia’s Anti-Graft Body Summons Mahathir’s Son to Aid Probe


Malaysia’s Anti-Corruption Commission is investigating the business activities of the son of former leader Mahathir Mohamad, in a sign of Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim’s widening anti-graft campaign against his rivals.

Mirzan Mahathir was summoned to the MACC headquarters Wednesday and told to declare all assets in his possession within 30 days, the anti-corruption body said in a statement Thursday. The order is part of the MACC’s probe into information from the Panama Papers as well as his business activities involving the sale and purchase of government-linked companies, it added.
