Money laundering report against deputy minister

KUALA LUMPUR: A fruit exporter has lodged a report with the Anti-Corruption Agency alleging that a deputy minister was involved in money laundering of up to RM10mil. 

Mohamad Tahir Fazal Mohamad lodged the report on Aug 23 along with supporting documents.  

Among them, were certified copies of receipts of payment to the deputy minister from 2000 up to the present day, and the general ledger of a company of which the deputy minister is chairman. 

Mohamad Tahir claimed the documents showed that the deputy minister had breached the Anti-Laundering Act and Bank Negara regulations through the illegal transfer of huge sums of money.  

“I have gone to see the ACA four times since filing the report but nothing has been done,” he said at a press conference yesterday at the Parti Keadilan Rakyat office.  

“They have not even recorded my statement.” 

At the press conference, he was flanked by lawyers Damian Pheny, who is his counsel, and Sivarasa Rasiah, who is the PKR vice-president. 

“If there is no response from the ACA after this, we will assist to take it up to Putrajaya to the Prime Minister’s Department,” Sivarasa said.
