KUCHING, June 29: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party’s (SUPP) bank account has been frozen as part of an Malaysia Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) investigation.
Its president Datuk Dr Sim Kui Hian confirmed in a statement today that the party has received a letter from its bank, informing that its headquarters’ account has been frozen for a three-month period for an MACC investigation.
“SUPP will comply with any investigation by the authority, as it always has,” said Dr Sim who is Local Government and Housing Minister.
The move is believed to be related to the ongoing investigation into the 1MDB money trail. The Star reported United Malays National Organisation (Umno) headquarters and Selangor Umno had their bank accounts frozen by MACC on June 28.
On May 28, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Stampin deputy youth chief Jeffrey Mok told reporters he had lodged a report with the MACC alleging that SUPP had received RM1 milliom from 1MDB. — DayakDaily
