KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court has set Sept 27 for case management over a prosecution application to gazette a notice to interested third parties with regard to RM677,872.55 seized from the Johor Baru Barisan Nasional division.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) seized the money last year, alleging that it was linked to the 1Malaysia Develop­ment Bhd (1MDB) scandal.

Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Gha­zali set the date after deputy public prosecutor Allan Suman Pillai of the MACC applied for a date for the prosecution to gazette the notice.

Mohd Haziq Dhiyauddin Razali, counsel for the respondent – the Johor Baru Barisan division – did not object to the application.

The gazetting of the notice is made in accordance with Section 61(2) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act.

Mohd Haziq said the respondent needed time to prepare the affidavit in reply as the Johor Baru Barisan division’s account involved three component political parties from which instructions must be obtained.The court set Aug 20 for the res­pondent to file the affidavit in reply.The notice is to enable the interested parties to appear in court, on a date to be determined, to explain why the money should not be forfeited by the Federal Government. — Bernama
