Umno information chief Annuar Musa claims that Bersih chairperson Maria Chin Abdullah has links to US intelligence bureau Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Maria, along with her late husband Yunus Lebai Ali, are linked to the CIA through her work in several NGOs back in the 1980s, such as National Institute for Electoral Integrity (NIEI), he said.

Annuar explained that NIEI was sponsored by the Asia Foundation, under The National Citizens' Movement for Free Elections (Namfrel) and Asian Network for Free and Fair Elections (Anfrel).
