Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has returned to the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya today for further questioning.

Clad in a greenish batik shirt, Zahid arrived in a white Land Cruiser, around 9.20am.

He was seen waiting in the lounge for about 10 minutes before following the MACC officers to the upper level.

This is the third time that he has been summoned to anti-corruption commission’s headquarters.

Meanwhile, Berita Harian reported that Zahid's daughter Nurulhidayah Ahmad Zahid and his stepbrother Mohd Nasaee Ahmad Tarmizi were also present at the headquarters.

It is believed that the duo was also summoned for questioning.

The officers are expected to question Zahid in their ongoing investigation into alleged misappropriation of funds from the welfare foundation Yayasan Akal Budi.

MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Azam Baki confirmed yesterday that the commission has only called Zahid in for questioning, without divulging details.

A high-ranking MACC official had also told Malaysiakini that no order has been issued to arrest or charge the Bagan Datuk MP.

Zahid was summoned by the MACC on two occasions in July.

His meeting with the MACC investigators on July 2 was in relation to the alleged RM2.6 billion donation by the Saudi royalty deposited into the former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak's personal account.
