MACC agrees to further extend deadline for declaration of assets for Dr M's sons


KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) agreed to further extend the deadline for the declaration of assets by the two sons of former primer minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, says Tan Sri Azam Baki.

Its chief commissioner said the lawyers representing Mirzan and Tan Sri Mokhzani Mahathir have requested an extension of the deadline for them to declare the assets.

“We have set the initial date for them to declare (the assets), and later, we also agreed to extend further the deadline for both of them to do so,” he said at the sidelines after the pre-launch ceremony of the publishing project and integrity values implementation programme (anti-corruption) joint venture between MACC and the Malaysia Institute of Translation and Books (ITBM) here on Wednesday (May 29).

On Tuesday (May 28), Azam said neither Mirzan nor Mokhzani had declared their assets to the anti-graft body even though their deadlines were set for May 25 and May 29, respectively.

In January, the two were given notice to declare their assets within 30 days by February, but the MACC has since granted them multiple deadline extensions.

The latest deadline extension was granted on April 26, when Mokhzani and Mirzan were given another 30-day extension.

The MACC had called the two brothers for questioning earlier this year and sought them to declare their assets, which they had accumulated since 1981, the year Dr Mahathir became prime minister for the first time.
