PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has seized assets including luxury cars belonging to PAS leaders in their probe into allegations about a RM90mil fund transfer into party accounts.

Sources said the investigators had brought in the assets over the past few days.

Aside from cars, bank accounts of certain individuals were also frozen as part of the investigation, said a source.

"Yes, more leaders will be called," said a source on Thursday (Feb 28).

The MACC had confirmed that it had yet to find any 1Malaysia Development Bhd funds in PAS' official bank account.

With this already ascertained, sources said investigators were now focusing on the individual accounts of certain PAS leaders.

On Feb 13, The Star reported that the probe had now shifted to the personal accounts of its leaders.

The allegation that PAS had received RM90mil in bribes from Umno was made in a Sarawak Report article on Aug 6, 2016.

PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang sued Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle Brown for libel over the article but the duo settled the matter out of court.
