MACC nabs Azeez and his brother

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested Baling MP and Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim, and his brother.

A source told theSun that the duo will be charged with money-laundering offences tomorrow. The MACC is expected to issue a statement on the arrests soon.

On May 23, the MACC raided Abdul Azeez's homes and offices and seized RM500,000 in cash, 20 watches and several pieces of jewellery.

The former Tabung Haji chairman allegedly claimed that part of the money was from his Umno allocation while some foreign currencies were from Kelab Putera 1Malaysia (KP1M).
