PETALING JAYA, May 23 — Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) investigators have raided the office and home of Lembaga Tabung Haji chairman Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim.

A source from MACC told Malay Mail that the raid started yesterday 9am at several locations including the Lembaga Tabung Haji headquarters located in Kuala Lumpur, and continues today.

The source said so far investigators have seized more than half a million ringgit in cash, some documents and jewellery.

“The raids are still ongoing in several other locations in Kedah and Selangor.

“We also seized stacks of foreign currency which we are in the midst of counting now,” the source said.

Yesterday MACC chief Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull in a tell-all press conference revealed that he received threats from a former member of Parliament from the north.
