Declaration of assets: Tun M among individuals investigated by MACC

GUA MUSANG: Chief Commissioner of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), Tan Sri Azam Baki, said that former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is among the individuals being investigated regarding asset declaration issues. The Chief Commissioner of MACC said that as a result of the investigation, both of his children have also been served notices to declare assets within the stipulated period under Section 36 of the MACC Act 2009.

“I have no intention to divulge further details regarding the case, about what offenses all of them have committed.

“Let the MACC continue its investigation first until I think of an appropriate time to announce the findings of the investigation,” he said.

He said this to reporters after officiating the new MACC office branch in Gua Musang on the 1st floor of the Federal Building in the district here on Thursday.
On January 18, the MACC requested both of Dr. Mahathir’s children, Mirzan and Tan Sri Mokhzani, to declare all movable and immovable assets held either domestically or abroad within 30 days from the date of the notice.

Mokhzani is also being investigated under the MACC Act 2009 and the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing, and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.
Meanwhile, commenting on the investigation of the son-in-law of former Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Azam said there are new indications showing that Datuk Seri Muhammad Adlan Berhan spent using a credit card overseas.

“Based on MACC’s monitoring, he (Muhammad Adlan Berhan) used his credit card and spent in several countries.

“The MACC has requested Interpol to issue a red flag on him in this case, and we are still tracking him down to be charged in court,” he said.
Last August, the MACC sought to locate two men to assist in the investigation of corruption and abuse of power related to a project involving the registration, recruitment, and storage of biometric data of foreign workers in a ministry.

They are Muhammad Adlan Berhan, 48, with the last address at Sunway Kiara Hills, Desa Sri Hartamas, and Mansoor Saat, 69, with the last address in Subang Jaya, Selangor.
