PETALING JAYA: The customs department has dismissed claims of a raid on PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli’s data firm, Invoke Solutions Sdn Bhd.
According to Utusan Malaysia, the department said it only delivered a notice to the company.
“The notice is a notification for an inspection of documents related to service tax,” it said.
The department described the inspection as a “routine procedure” for auditing purposes, and urged the public against speculating on the matter.
Yesterday, Rafizi revealed that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) raided Invoke twice in a week, and that the customs department had sent a notice stating it would do the same.
Rafizi, the Pakatan Harapan candidate for Pandan, claimed the authorities wanted to uncover “dirt” on him before the general election.
Last week, it was reported that MACC was investigating Rafizi’s assets declaration after a report was lodged urging the agency to specifically look into Invoke.
Rafizi had declared RM18,851,350 in net assets as of Oct 31.
