MACC records Ambiga's statement about RM90mil alleged payment to PAS


PUTRAJAYA: Former Bersih chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan (pic) has had her statement recorded over claims that PAS received RM90mil from former premier Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

She was called to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters on Thursday (Feb 7) to have her statement recorded.

"From what we know, editor of news portal Sarawak Report Clare Rewcastle Brown claimed that she got this RM90mil information from Ambiga.

"That's why we called her to find out what is it that she knows," said a source on Friday (Feb 8).

MACC recently confirmed that it had initiated an investigation into the RM90mil allegation after police reports were lodged on the matter.

This came after the decision by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang to agree to an out-of-court settlement of a defamation suit filed against Rewcastle Brown.

Sarawak Report claimed that PAS had received RM90mil from Umno, with the money suspected to have originated from the controversial 1Malaysia Development Berhad.

This allegation had been repeatedly denied by PAS and Umno.
