PETALING JAYA: Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman had to leave Parliament after he was called to assist the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in its investigations.

The investigation is believed to be over the RM250,000 which went missing from the safe at the Muar MP's home.

“I had to leave Parliament a little early today, because I was called by the MACC to assist investigations.

“I am ready and will always cooperate fully with the MACC.

"My parents, entire family and I have long ago declared our assets to ensure transparency, ” he tweeted on Thursday (July 16).

In another tweet he said, “I have always acted honestly and have courage due to the truth. I hope my dealings with the MACC today are made easy."

The former Youth and Sports Minister had lodged a police report in March after the cash went missing from a safe at his home in Petaling Jaya.

It was reported that the MACC was expected to call up more Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia youth wing members as investigations go beyond the RM250,000 that was reported missing from the home of its former leader.

So far, nine members have had their statements recorded by the MACC. Two of them were remanded.

MACC director of investigations Datuk Norazlan Mohd Razali was quoted as saying they may call in more individuals from the party as the investigation continues.

Although he declined to say what else MACC was investigating the youth wing for, he did confirm that they had seized RM600,000 from the homes of two Bersatu Youth members believed to have been misappropriated from party funds.

MACC officers called up the two on June 5 to record their statements in connection with the RM250,000 reported missing at Syed Saddiq's home.
