KUALA LUMPUR - Former Bersatu information chief Datuk Wan Saiful Wan Jan confirms that he has been asked to appear at the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex on Wednesday to face new charges related to money laundering (AMLA).

In a statement on his Facebook page, the Tasek Gelugor MP said that he had received instructions to appear at 8.30am.

However, he mentioned that the details of the new charges were not yet known.

"I will be present to defend myself and believe that the court is the best place to seek justice.

"I would like to thank the officers of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for conducting a civil investigation," he said.

Meanwhile, when contacted, lawyer Amer Hamzah Arshad, who represented Wan Saiful, confirmed the matter.

Previously, the political leader faced charges of soliciting a bribe from Lian Tan Chuan as an incentive for assisting Nepturis Sdn Bhd in securing the "Central Spine Road: East Coast Highway Interchange" project from the Malaysian government on a prequalification basis, with a total value of RM232 million.

Wan Saiful was also accused of receiving a bribe of RM6,962,694.54 in cash through his company's CIMB Bank Berhad account, WSA Advisory Group Sdn Bhd, from Nepturis' Maybank Islamic Berhad account as payment for helping the company obtain the Letter of Acceptance for the project.
