Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said he was prepared to be investigated again regarding the ownership of property which was alleged to be extraordinarily substantial belonging to him when he was Private Secretary to the Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, 22 years ago.
Mohamed Azmin said he was always open and would give his full cooperation to anyone including the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) regarding the property ownership.
“It’s up to them (if they want to investigate again). It is nothing new, previously the MACC had also conducted an investigation on the state government administration and leadership,” he told reporters after handing over financial aid to padi farmers in Parit 10, Sungai Besar, here today.
He was commenting on the statement by Selangor MACC Director, Datuk Wan Ramli Wan Abdullah yesterday that the case would be reopened if there were new evidence although it had been closed by the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) in 1997.
Recently, various groups including non-governmental organisations (NGOs) had urged the MACC to reopen investigation papers on Mohamed Azmin’s extraordinary property ownership which was allegedly closed by the ACA without reasonable grounds.
