KUALA LUMPUR: Office bearers of MyPPP want the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to probe the allegation by its ousted president Tan Sri M. Kayveas (pic) that RM36mil was channelled to six individuals in the party.  

"We were shocked when we learned from a news report that Kayveas said specific amounts of RM16mil and RM30mil had been given to six individuals.  

"We have no knowledge of the alleged money and we did not receive any of it.  

"The MACC must investigate and reveal who the six are and take action if it's true," party spokesman Datuk Dr Loga Bala Mohan told reporters on Friday (Oct 19).  

Dr Loga said the party's supreme council, which is recognised by the Registrar of Societies, will meet on Oct 30 to discuss Kayveas's shocking revelation.  

"We will lodge reports with the MACC and police in Putrajaya.  

"We believe our members and the public have a right to know the truth on who amassed wealth running into the millions, the source of the funds and its ultimate use," he added.  

The meeting, he said, would also discuss the 10 police reports lodged against Kayveas since July this year over allegations he had amassed millions in property and businesses abroad and locally.  

"The allegations were highlighted by a bloggers and have been circulating on social media with documents showing the alleged deals.  

"However, the police have yet to record any statement or reveal the status of their investigations," said Dr Loga.  

Meanwhile, acting president Datuk Seri Maglin D’Cruz confirmed he had received a call from the MACC on Thursday (Oct 18) regarding funds linked to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).  

D'Cruz said he told the MACC he had no knowledge of such funds and if there were any documents, they could be in Kayveas' possession or in a storage room in Subang.  

"The MACC asked me to assist, and I am willing to show them where the storeroom is," he added.  

On Thursday (Oct 18), Kayveas claimed the MACC called him to "clarify" funds linked to 1MDB.  

He said he told them that the RM36mil was collected by the opposite faction vying for power within MyPPP.  

Kayveas had previously been expelled from the party and D'Cruz assumed the role of acting president.  

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