The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is wrapping up its investigation on the alleged RM90 million funds received by PAS. In the meantime, PKR President Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim has once again brought up the issue by claiming that he has information regarding the name of PAS leaders who received the money from UMNO.
According to the media trend, the RM90 million issue peaked in February but quickly calmed down in March. Then, in April, the issue seemed to have died down.
Speaking during a forum with University Sains Islam Malaysia students on Saturday (April 20), Anwar said the revelation of the names might need some time until MACC completed its investigation, causing the media exposure to spike again.
Responding to Anwar’s statement, Hadi called his intention of revealing the name of said leaders a bluff (April 21).
Further denying the accusation, Hadi claimed that if PAS were to put together donations from all preaching activities over the years, the money would exceed RM90 million.
In the media, Hadi is the top influencer of the RM90 million issue, with 94 statements within the past month.
Besides defending against the allegation, the PAS president also claimed that his party has information regarding leaders from other parties who received foreign funds in large numbers.
Will the authorities take Hadi’s allegation into consideration and launch a separate investigation?
