MACC grants further extension to Mokhzani, Mirzan over asset declaration

KUALA LUMPUR, May 29 — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has granted Tan Sri Mokhzani Mahathir and his brother Mirzan Mahathir additional time to declare their assets.

Without disclosing the extension period, its chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki said Mirzan and Mokhzani’s lawyers had been in contact with MACC investigating officers regarding the asset declaration period.

“We have already set the deadline for them to declare their assets; we have reached an agreement on that matter,” he said.

Azam was speaking at the pre-launch ceremony of a joint venture for a publishing project and Integrity Value Implementation (Anti-Corruption) programme between MACC and the Malaysian Institute of Translation and Book (ITBM) at the World Trade Centre today.

Also present was Education Director-General Azman Adnan.

On January 18, Mirzan and Mokhzani were served with a notice under Section 36 (1)(b) of the MACC Act 2009, requiring them to declare all movable and immovable assets in their possession.

On May 24, it was reported that both brothers had applied to the MACC to extend the deadline for the duo to declare their assets after being granted an extension earlier.

Mokhzani is reportedly being investigated under the MACC Act 2009 and the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing, and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.
