PETALING JAYA: UEM Group Bhd (UEM Group) says it does not have an account at the Maybank Kuala Lumpur main branch nor an account with the alleged account number as claimed by various social media sites.

“To clear its name, UEM Group has lodged a police report and is ready to cooperate with the relevant authorities,” it said in a statement Wednesday (June 13).

UEM was responding to viral reports that they had transferred funds of around RM3mil into the accounts of a Cabinet minister.

Newly-appointed Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Latheefa Koya said she will be not involved in investigations into alleged suspicious transactions into the bank accounts of the minister.

Latheefa said this in response to queries on a report lodged by Umno supreme council member Datuk Lokman Noor Adam Tuesday (June 11).

"MACC will investigate all reports in a professional manner and will not take any sides.

"The investigations will be handled by my deputy and his investigation team. I will not be involved in any way, whether in the investigations or decision making,” she said in statement Wednesday (June 12).

Lokman had claimed that in December 2017, the Cabinet minister had around RM3mil transferred into his bank accounts.

“I make this report hoping that the new MACC chief will act without bias and will take action against any parties, including those from her (former) political party,” he had said.
