MACC closes in on …. Azalina

MACC moves in

Three Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers spent two hours at the Tourism Minister’s office and took away two documents, as part of investigations into money politics leading up to the Umno party elections.

They also interviewed two senior officials from Datuk Azalina Othman Said’s office at Menara Dato Onn here.

According to sources, the MACC officers arrived at the ministry around 10am yesterday, and after interviewing the two officials, asked to see certain documents.

They then asked if they could take away the documents and the two officials readily agreed.

“There was no seizure of any sort,” said another senior official from Azalina’s office.

The minister was not in at the time of the “visit” by commission officers.

It is learnt that the MACC is investigating a gathering she attended with some Umno members at the Saloma Bistro in Jalan Ampang here last week.

It was also after the same gathering that a political secretary of a minister was detained by the MACC, after RM70,000 was found in his car.

The 44-year-old man was released after six hours of questioning.

Azalina’s officials denied that yesterday’s visit by the MACC had anything to do with the RM70,000 incident.

However, sources said the MACC officers also visited the Tourism Malaysia treasury office to verify some information before leaving.

In a statement, the minister’s office said it would give its fullest co-operation to the commission on this matter.

“We have the fullest confidence in the MACC and are equally confident that we will be cleared by their investigations,” the statement added.

Party insiders said there was a complaint lodged with the commission over the gathering as some of those present were Umno delegates.

“Under party election rules, such a gathering must be a sanctioned one organised by the state liaison committee.

“Therefore, unorganised gatherings are viewed with suspicion and the MACC has been asked to determined if there was money politics involved at this gathering,” the insider said.

The MACC declined to comment on this investigation.
