KUANTAN: PAS Youth is demanding an apology from those who had accused the Islamist party of accepting 1MDB money in the past.

Its new chief Khairil Nizam Khirudin said this was as PAS was not implicated in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's (MACC) civil forfeiture suit against 41 entities.

"If you look at the list, there is not one individual linked to PAS.

"This is consistent with what MACC has stated before – that PAS has never received 1MDB money," he said at the sidelines of the 65th PAS Muktamar here Saturday (June 22).

Khairil said the accusations against PAS before GE14 had affected public opinion of the party.

"I urge anyone, including current ministers, who have accused us in the past to tender an open apology," he said.

The MACC announced on Friday (June 21) that it aimed to recover RM270mil allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB.

The 41 named in the suit were individuals, political parties, trust funds and business entities that had received monies from former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's personal AmBank account.
