KUCHING, June 21: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) will let the law takes its course with regards to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) civil forfeiture suits against the party.

“In respect of the civil forfeiture action announced by MACC today, SUPP will let the law takes its course and hope closure is finally at hand,” said SUPP secretariat in a statement today.

SUPP pointed out that on June 26 last year, SUPP was notified by its bank that its headquarters’ account was frozen by MACC.

“On Sept 24, 2018, SUPP received further notice that the account was seized by MACC. Our officer bearers have throughout this period cooperated with the investigation,” emphasised SUPP.

MACC today announced it had filed civil forfeiture suits against 41 recipients and entities to recover RM270 million related to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

Among the 41 recipients was SUPP.

MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya said the suits were filed at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on June 19.

She said the monies given to these 41 political parties, foundations and companies all came from former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s personal bank account. — DayakDaily
