Tan Sri M. Kayveas

PETALING JAYA: It is learned that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has hauled up disputed MyPPP president Tan Sri M. Kayveas for questioning in connection to funds possibly linked to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

The party's deputy secretary-general Datuk Simon Sabapathy confirmed this, saying that he was contacted by an MACC officer on Thursday morning asking for financial documents.

“He said they were looking at funds that were transferred from Umno to MyPPP during his (Kayveas’) time.

“I informed him that if there were any documents, they would either be in the party headquarters or a storage unit in Subang where Kayveas’ personal belongings have been kept since he was evicted,” he told The Star on Thursday.

He added that all financial dealings of the party and the connected documents were handled by Kayveas’ personal assistant.

Kayveas was previously expelled from the party and Datuk Seri Maglin D’Cruz assumed the role of acting president.

D’Cruz had maintained that Kayveas was no longer a member of MyPPP as of April 25, and that Kayveas has been misleading party members and the public claiming that he is still president.

As at press time, Kayveas has not responded to The Star’s attempts to contact him.
