‘Spy probe’ – MACC seized US$6.3m, looking for another US$5m

MACC has seized a total of US$6.3 million in cash from several locations during their probe into the alleged misappropriation of funds by government intelligence officers, including the unit’s former chief Hasanah Abdul Hamid.
The largest stash, a total of US$4.07 million, was found in a rented condominium in Cyberjaya last night, shortly after the arrest of a businessperson in Kelantan.
MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Azam Baki said the commission is still looking for about US$5 million. The sum is believed to belong to the federal government.
Speaking to reporters in Putrajaya this afternoon, he said investigations revealed that a total of US$12 million was brought back into the country three months ago.
However, MACC has yet to ascertain what the money was for.
He promised that those who come forward would be placed under witness protection and this includes those who might have the money in their keeping.  – Mkini

MACC has seized millions in US dollars following the arrest of intelligence officers, including the unit’s former chief Hasanah Abdul Hamid, claimed sources.
It is learned that MACC would reveal the haul during a special press conference at its headquarters this afternoon.
Sources told Malaysiakini that investigators learned about the existence of the cash and where it was stored after questioning those detained.
Yesterday, Hasanah, who was removed from her post after Pakatan Harapan came to power, was remanded for five days to facilitate investigations.
Hasanah and the other officers, who are still in service, are being investigated under Section 23(1) of the MACC Act for abuse of power or position for gratification.
According to a news report, MACC is reportedly looking into a possible link between the US$12 million allegedly misappropriated election funds and 1MDB.
The New Straits Times reported that the US$12 million (RM49.498 million at current rates) was brought in as cold hard cash through the Kuala Lumpur International Airport sometime in mid-April allegedly for the 14th general election.
Hasanah landed in the limelight in July when a letter she had penned to the CIA ahead of the May 9 general election was leaked.
The letter had sought US’ support even if BN wins the election with a single seat. – Mkini
