PUTRAJAYA: Former PAS deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa today presented details of his bank account to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) after he was called to assist in the investigation into a claim that PAS leaders had received RM90 million linked to 1MDB.

Nasharudin said he also showed investigators bank statements of the now-defunct Global Movement of Moderates Foundation (GMM), which he once headed.

“I am satisfied with the outcome of the meeting (with MACC) and it is our hope that MACC is allowed to carry out their investigations.

“I am grateful that I was able to explain the matter and furnish them with evidence,” he told reporters outside MACC headquarters here.

In 2017, former Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli said Nasharudin had received money linked to the troubled state firm.

Nasharudin has denied the allegation but has not taken legal action against Rafizi.

MACC’s investigation was launched days after the out-of-court settlement of a defamation suit by PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang against Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown.

Rewcastle-Brown had suggested that senior PAS leaders could have received RM90 million from Najib Razak. The former prime minister has denied the claim.

MACC’s probe is being carried out under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.
