KAJANG: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will check with the Treasury on the allegations against businessman Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak in connection with the purchase of shares in a company shortlisted for a RM1bil government contract.

Anwar said he would only issue a statement after getting further information regarding the matter.

"I will check with the Treasury and release a statement,” he told reporters after attending the Iftar ceremony at Masjid Ashabus Solihin, Taman Rakan here on Wednesday (March 27).

Previously, Umno supreme council member Isham Jalil urged police to investigate Farhash, who is also the former political secretary to Anwar, for allegedly purchasing 16.1 million units of Heitech Padu shares through Rosetta Partners investment company estimated to be worth RM40mil.

Earlier, Anwar spent time breaking fast with residents around Taman Rakan and students of tahfiz schools at the mosque, accompanied by his daughter Nurul Izzah.
