No third party claims on more than RM2m seized from Pahang Umno



No interested third party appeared before the Kuala Lumpur High Court here today to claim the RM2,479,300.18 linked to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) that was seized by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) from Pahang UMNO.

Deputy public prosecutor from MACC Farah Yasmin Salleh said the prosecution had gazetted a notice last Sept 10 for third parties to appear in court today to claim the property.

Since no one appeared in court to claim it, she requested a date to submit the written submission.

The matter came up for case management before judge Rozana Ali Yusof and also present was lawyer Mohd Shukri Ahmad Mansor, representing Pahang UMNO.

The court then set Nov 18 for both parties to file their written submission and Dec 6 to hear the government's application to forfeit the property.

Meanwhile, the High Court today set Feb 5 next year to hear the prosecution's application to forfeit RM677,872.55 that was seized from the Johor Bahru BN division to the government.

The money, allegedly linked to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal, was seized by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC)

Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali set the date during the case management which was attended by deputy public prosecutor from MACC, Allan Suman Pillai , and lawyer Syahrul Syazwan Salehin, representing Johor Bahru BN.

He also ordered both parties to submit their written submission on or before Jan 28 next year.
