Mokhzani Mahathir gets 30-day extension to declare assets

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has granted Tan Sri Mokhzani Mahathir a 30-day extension to declare his assets.

According to Scoop, MACC Chief Commissioner, Azam Baki confirmed that Mokhzani had officially applied to extend the period.

Last week, it was reported that Mahathir's other son, Mirzan, was given a 30-day extension to declare his assets.

The two sons of Malaysia's longest-serving prime minister are currently being probed by MACC and have been asked to declare their assets.

The graft busters are looking into Mrizan's wealth while Mokhzani is being investigated under the MACC Act 2009 and the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.

Previously, Azam said Mirzan and Mokhzani could face prosecution if they failed to comply with MACC's notice to declare their assets.

Mirzan and Mokhzani, both businessmen, have urged MACC to be 'patient', citing the challenge of obtaining all the information required since 1981, within a short time frame.
