KUALA LUMPUR: Umno will go ahead with legal action to claim the RM116.7mil in cash seized during a recent raid, says party president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

"We respect the view of the police but we have initiated legal action to claim the money which was seized. We will do it through legal ways," he told reporters at the Parliament lobby on Tuesday (Oct 16).

He was asked to comment on the application filed by the police to strike out a civil suit by Umno to reclaim the money seized on May 17, stating that the party had no locus in the matter, among others.

Asked how Umno would prove that the money claimed belonged to the party, Dr Ahmad Zahid said this would be adduced during the party's civil suit.

Umno filed a suit to reclaim the money on Sept 24 through its executive secretary Datuk Mohd Sumali Reduan.

The suit named Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Amar Singh, police officers R. Rajagopal and Mohd Sakri Ariffin as well as the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Muhammad Fuzi Harun and the government of Malaysia as defendants.
