PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Annuar Musa has been suspended as Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) chairman with immediate effect.

In announcing this, Mara committee member Datuk Dr Yusof Yacob said Annuar has also been suspended as the head of Mara Investment Bhd (PMB).

The decision was made during an emergency meeting held at Mara headquarters in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday morning.

Dr Yusof will assume all the positions held by Annuar.

When contacted, Annuar said he accepted the decision but refused to elaborate as he had just been informed of the matter.

“I don’t know the details. I just received the phone call from Dr Yusof. I have nothing to say,” he said when asked if he knew the reasons behind the suspension.

Annuar said he was on “official duties” in New Zealand.

More to come.
