PETALING JAYA: There is no need for political parties to fear any graft investigation if they are free from corruption, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (pic).
The Prime Minister said graft-busting measures require the cooperation of all parties so authorities can carry out their duties freely.
"If you are clean, you don't have to be afraid," said Anwar.
Anwar said that it was ironic that Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had strongly supported measures to freeze Umno accounts during his administration.
"Now, Bersatu's accounts are frozen due to certain decisions made under his premiership. Muhyiddin should've been prepared to explain and stop disrupting investigations," said Anwar.
He also said politicians should not use religion and racial issues to question graft-busting measures.
"The issue of freezing party accounts is nothing new," added Anwar.
Bersatu's accounts were frozen by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Feb 1.
MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki said two Bersatu accounts were frozen and its probe was not related to the abuse of Covid-19 stimulus package funds.
Bersatu is currently being probed under the MACC Act, the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act.
