Several bank accounts belonging to PAS leaders have been frozen by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) as part of its investigation into RM90 million the party purportedly received from Umno.

The commission also seized cash, a shophouse and several vehicles, including a Toyota Vellfire, Range Rover and Mini Cooper.

It was reported that RM2.3 million in the bank accounts have been frozen while the shophouse is worth RM2 million.

Earlier today, PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan was questioned by the MACC for more than four hours in Putrajaya after arriving at its headquarters at 9.20am before leaving at 2pm.

He said he answered questions from investigators regarding allegations that he owned a fleet of cars, a luxury motorcycle and a personalised licence plate.

“They did not ask me to hand over any documents,” he said after giving his statement.

The Kota Baru MP also said he will not be called in again as the MACC had approved his statement.

Reportedly, more leaders will be brought in for questioning and investigators were now focusing on the individual accounts of certain PAS leaders.
