KUALA LUMPUR, June 23 (Bernama) -- A former Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR)
leader today urged Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to make a sworn statement to
Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on assets worth millions of ringgit
allegedly owned by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) deputy president Azmin Ali.
Former Terengganu PKR Youth chief Fakrul Azmin Abu Bakar has asked that the
opposition leader make the sworn statement in seven days.
"If Anwar is honest then he will cooperate, so we ask him to explain how
Azmin could obtain shares and funds of millions of ringgit despite a mere
monthly salary of RM2,400 (at the time).
"If not, the promise to cooperate is just another one of Anwar''s tricks," he
said in a statement through short message service (SMS) to Bernama here tonight.
Fakrul Azman also wants Anwar to file a defamation suit against former
Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) investigations director Abdul Razak Idris to prove
who is telling the truth.
He also wants Anwar to prove that he is sincere in cooperating with the MACC
on investigations regarding a stash amounting to RM3 billion.
Former Bank Negara assistant governor Datuk Abdul Murad Khalid, in his
statutory declaration, revealed that Anwar, when holding the post of Finance
Minister in the 1990s, had controlled 20 master accounts involving assets,
shares and funds worth over RM3 billion.
