MP: Will MCA and MIC's accounts be frozen as well?

Published:  |  Modified:

A DAP lawmaker has asked if MCA and MIC's accounts will be frozen as well similar to Umno's in relation to the 1MDB investigation.

Citing a Sarawak Report article, Lim Lip Eng said it was alleged that Selangor MCA liaison committee, MIC, Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and Sarawak United Peoples' Party (SUPP) also received 1MDB originated funds from former premier Najib Abdul Razak's bank account.

Both LDP and SUPP quit the BN coalition following the May 9 general election.

In 2013, Sarawak Report claimed that the Selangor MCA liaison committee received RM10 million, MIC RM15 million, LDP RM1 million and SUPP RM2 million.

Selangor MCA had denied this while MIC claimed the funding was from BN.

Former SUPP president Peter Chin criticised Sarawak Report for publishing images of cheques amounting to RM1 million purportedly issued by Najib to his party during the 2016 state polls.

However, Chin neither denied nor confirmed if the sum was received.

Meanwhile, Lim urged the above parties to cooperate with MACC with regard to the probe.

“The recipients should be honest and bold enough to come forward to assist in the investigation. Instead of hiding behind the infamous 'Najib I-don't-know defence',” he said.
