Hadi: MACC free to probe PAS on claims Umno gave RM2.5 mil

PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang says the party and its leaders are willing to be investigated.

MARANG: PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang has stressed that claims that Umno transferred RM2.5 million to the party were lies aimed at tarnishing its image.

He said PAS had repeatedly stated its readiness to be investigated over the matter so as to ensure that the party was clean from any negative elements.

“We are open to any investigation by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, including our menteris besar and state executive councillors, if there is any misconduct,” he said here today.

He added that the party welcomed donations from anyone, including non-Muslims.

Yesterday, Terengganu Amanah’s Youth wing had called on the MACC to investigate the alleged funding from Umno, claiming that the money could have been misappropriated from 1MDB.
