KUALA LUMPUR, June 25 (Bernama) -- PAS welcomes any investigation by the
Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission on allegations that Opposition leader Datuk
Seri Anwar Ibrahim had stashed away RM3 billion in foreign accounts when the
latter was deputy prime minister, said its vice-president Salahuddin Ayub.
He said not only Anwar, but the party welcomed the commission to investigate
anyone including PAS spiritual advisor Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, who is also
Kelantan Menteri Besar.
"We (PAS) do not have any problems regarding who MACC wants to
investigate... this is our official stand," he told reporters at Parliament''s
lobby today when asked for the party''s stand on the matter.
Local English daily the New Straits Times on June 18 had front-paged a
report quoting former Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) director Datuk Abdul Razak
Idris Abdul Razak as saying that Anwar, who was being investigated on the matter
by the ACA (now the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) then, had instructed
him to make a statutory declaration (SD) to clear him (Anwar).
