Six called up to have their statements taken.
Malaysia’s anti-graft body has opened an investigation paper on the large amount of cash stolen from the home of former Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said that the investigation was made following a report that it received recently.
“Based on that report, we are carrying out an investigation under the MACC Act 2009,” it said.
It was reported yesterday that RM250,000 in cash was stolen from Syed Saddiq’s house in Petaling Jaya on Saturday.
In the 7pm incident, the money, which the Muar MP said was last seen on March 13 or 14, was kept in a steel safe box.
He claimed that there were no signs of the safe being forced open.
Syed Saddiq also denied that the RM250,000 missing from his safe belonged to Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu).
Meanwhile, police have called in six individuals to have their statements taken.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said they would have their statements taken at noon at the district police headquarters on Tuesday (March 31).
“The case is under investigation and we do have a few leads which I am not at liberty to divulge at this time,” he said.
He added that police had remanded the maid to help with investigations under Section 380 of the Penal Code for theft.
