The MACC has stressed that whoever is involved in the claim that RM90 million was allegedly channelled into the accounts of PAS leaders, will be called to assist in the investigations.
MACC chief commissioner Mohd Shukri Abdull, while not wanting to raise speculations, said the commission's task was to ascertain whether or not the money was deposited into the accounts.
“I do not want to speculate on whether certain individuals will be called or not... because corruption is not about speculations or expectations. It is (based) more on facts,” he told Bernama at the Majlis Amanat Perdana Integriti 2019 (MAPI) programme graced by Sarawak Chief Minister Abang Johari Openg in Kuching today.
The MACC had earlier confirmed receiving a report on the RM90 million suspected to be from 1MDB, which was allegedly deposited into the accounts of several PAS leaders.
Last Friday, PAS central committee member Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz, presented himself at the Kelantan MACC headquarters to give his statement regarding the case.
According to MACC sources, the case is being investigated under the MACC Act 2009 and Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.
There had been articles carried by the Sarawak Report in August 2017, which among other things claimed that a sum of RM90 million was "believed" to have been deposited into the bank accounts of senior PAS leaders to secure their support for Umno and BN.
Unrestrained power in your hands
For almost 20 years, Malaysiakini has stayed true to the cause of providing the Malaysian public with the truth. We believe that with unadulterated information, the people will obtain power to make informed decisions.
Decisions which lead to a healthy, robust nation - ours!
Keep the truth alive. Support your robust, independent media. You have the unrestrained power to do so.
Who says it's not our fault?
We aren’t trained to take responsibility.
Everytime we observe an injustice - and choose to keep mum - the prevalence of injustice becomes our fault.
Astute journalism paves the way for the public to be continuously furnished with the fastidious truth. You are continuously empowered to act and to uphold the integrity of the nation.
The Rakyat owns Malaysiakini
We choose to take a risk on independent media because we believe that only through independent reporting can one be NOT beholden to the interest of businesses or organisations. This allows us to really pursue the truth - aggressively.
Independent for 20 years.
The victorious people
In the light of holding the truth to power, Malaysiakini will continue to uphold its mission of providing credible news to its discerning public. Your support for Malaysiakini is always treasured as a testament of innate nationalism. Your victory is our history.
Quietly. Effectively. Says it all. Malaysiakini.
Speaking truth to power
When we embarked on this journey 20 years ago, we knew we would face intimidation, harassment, raids, arrests and perhaps even jail terms. We got into this venture with our eyes wide open.
The main reason we have survived this long - when many others have folded - is partly because we are prudent in our finances. But while we may be tightfisted in our budgeting, we do not hold back when it comes to speaking truth to power and holding power to account. And certainly, this new administration will not stop us from continuing to do so.
