A warrant of arrest against Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has been issued.
This was the claim made by Penang exco member Dr Afif Bahardin via Twitter.
The exco member is believed to be in the chief minister’s office in Komtar.
Also inside is Lim's lawyer RSN Rayer, who arrived at Komtar at 5.40pm.
Moments ago, several men, believed to be Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers, were spotted entering the chief minister’s office at level 28 in Komtar.
At press time, two officers have emerged from the office. However, they declined to shed any light on the developments.
There was a noticeably heavy police presence at the entrance to the state administrative building. Lim is currently chairing the state executive council meeting.
Lim is being investigated over allegations of corruption for the purchase of his RM2.8 million house.
His house purchase was also linked to the state's sale of state land in Taman Manggis to Kuala Lumpur International Dental Centre (KLIDC).
