Mokhzani and Mirzan preparing to declare 43 years of assets to MACC

KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Mokhzani Mahathir and Mirzan Mahathir are compiling and collating 43 years' worth of information to declare their assets to the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC).

In a statement today, the sons of former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the MACC had given them 30 days to comply.

"The MACC has requested a list of assets going back to 1981, the year our father Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad became prime minister.

"We are in the midst of compiling available information and engaging with relevant parties to assist and advise us on the process.

"To avoid any misrepresentation or prejudgement, it would seem appropriate for all parties to apply restraint when commenting on this case, especially when we have not been informed of the specifics of the investigation other than it pertains to our father.

"The task at hand in collating 43 years' worth of information is an impossible endeavour and we ask for patience and understanding to address MACC's request," they said.

On Tuesday, MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki said the graft buster had yet to receive asset declaration notices from Mokhzani and Mirzan.

He said MACC had filed a notice under Section 36 of the MACC Act 2009 to both men last month.

On Jan 18, MACC had summoned Mirzan, the eldest of Dr Mahathir's children to facilitate an ongoing investigation into his wealth.

The commission said it had served Mirzan a notice under Section 36(1)(b) of the MACC Act 2009 to declare his assets, all movable and immovable assets, whether inside or outside the country, within 30 days.

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