MACC Says No Basis to Probe Zahid’s Alleged Wealth


MACC chief says not everybody with wealth must be subjected to investigations.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will only investigate a person’s wealth if there is a basis for the allegation that there are elements of corruption and abuse of power in his wealth, says MACC chief commissioner Dzulkifli Ahmad.

He said the amount of money one person had was not a reason for the commission to start investigating him.

“The issue is whether the wealth is accumulated through corruption and abuse of power…that basis must be there for the commission to investigate.

“People can be rich, but it is important that we look at the source of their wealth because if it is through corruption and abuse of power, then it will become the MACC’s responsibility to investigate,” he said, when asked whether the commission will investigate Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi on the excessive wealth he allegedly owned.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad had recently claimed that Zahid had RM230 million in his bank account back in 1996, and DAP subsequently lodged a police report on the allegation.

Commenting further, Dzulkifli said Mahathir’s statement was not enough reason for an investigation to be carried out as there was no evidence to support it.
