MACC questions minister's spouse

PUTRAJAYA: The wife of Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai was questioned by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission yesterday regarding allegations of graft. Datin Seri Lee Sun Loo was at the MACC headquarters here for four hours, during which her statement was recorded. MACC investigations director Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdull said Lee arrived at 10am. It was the first time Lee was questioned over allegations that she was given a multi-purpose vehicle as a birthday present from a company often involved in Health Ministry projects.
Allegations first surfaced on a news portal that a company that won a tender from the ministry in January gave Lee a Toyota Alphard worth more than RM500,000. In October, Segambut member of parliament Lim Lip Eng lodged a police report against Lee over the matter.

Liow had previously denied such allegations, saying he was being politically assassinated. However, he said he welcomed investigations so that he could clear his name.
