Asset declaration: Tun Mahathir among individuals being probed – MACC

Gua Musang, April 25 (Bernama) — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has confirmed that former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is among individuals being investigated over the asset declaration issue.

Its chief commissioner, Tan Sri Azam Baki, said that, as a result of the investigation, Mahathir’s two sons were also served a notice to declare their assets within the period stipulated in the notice, under Section 36 of the MACC Act 2009.

“I don’t intend to go into more detail about the case.

“Let the MACC continue the investigation first until I think of a suitable time for us to announce the findings of the investigation into the case,” he said.

He said this to reporters after officiating the new MACC Gua Musang branch office, on the 1st floor of the Bangunan Persekutuan, here, today.
