I will be lodging a report with the MACC at the agency’s Shah Alam office tomorrow at 3.30 pm.

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has opened an investigation paper following a report lodged by an individual that RM90mil was allegedly paid to PAS, Free Malaysia Today reported.
“We have classified the case under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001,” a source told the news portal.
The source said the MACC received the report from police on Tuesday (Feb 5) afternoon.
Earlier, Amanah deputy Youth chief Faiz Fadzil urged the authorities to open an investigation against PAS to determine if the allegation that the Islamist party received RM90mil from Umno or funds from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was true.
In an 11th of October 2017 Defence and Counterclaim statement filed at the High Court of Justice in London, Clare Rewcastle Brown accused Najib of paying PAS “top echelons” RM90 million “to woo them away from the (then) opposition coalition.” Sarawak Report is a Clare-run propaganda machine that spent a good four years running the gamut of conspiracy against Najib. Clare, who applied to strike out Hadi’s suit, roped The Third Force into the fray by accusing Hadi of being party to some of my publications
Fadzil made the call after PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang opted for an out-of-court settlement with Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle Brown.
Terengganu Amanah chairman Datuk Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah had also called the PAS leadership to give a full explanation why it opted for an out-of-court settlement with Rewcastle Brown over the defamation suit.
Abdul Hadi sued Rewcastle Brown for libel over an article she published on Aug 6, 2016, alleging the party received RM90mil in bribes from Umno.
