PETALING JAYA: A report filed with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commision (MACC) on allegations of PAS receiving RM90mil from Umno in 2016 contained a list of expensive vehicles and properties.

“According to the report, several PAS leaders were accused of using these funds to acquire the cars and properties.

“The cars include BMW, Mini Cooper, Toyota Vellfire, Range Rover, Porsche Cayman, Audi Q7, Audi A6, Toyota Camry, Toyota Fortuner, Volkswagen Passat, Mercedes Benz, and a BMW motorcycle," a source familiar with the investigations told Malaysiakini.

The source was also quoted saying that bungalows, high-powered motorcycles and the purchase of number plates at exorbitant prices were also mentioned in the list.

“As for the properties, this includes a bungalow in Bangi worth RM3mil,” the source told the online news portal.

It was reported that several current and former PAS leaders were called in by the MACC regarding the RM90mil payment, which were allegedly from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) funds.

The individuals include former party deputy president Datuk Nasharudin Mat Isa and Bachok MP and PAS central committee member Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz.

It is learnt that Parti Amanah Negara vice-president Datuk Husam Musa, who was a former vice-president of PAS, is one of the individuals the MACC wants to question.

MACC initiated a probe into claims that PAS was the recipient of 1MDB money after its president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang opted for an out-of-court settlement with Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle Brown.

Abdul Hadi had earlier sued for libel over an article Rewcastle Brown published on Aug 6, 2016, alleging the party received RM90mil in bribes from Umno.
