Umno Baling MP and Tabung Haji Chairman, Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez…


25 September 2018

MACC has arrested former Tabung Haji chairperson Azeez Abdul Rahim, who is also the Umno MP for Baling, and one of his brothers.

According to a MACC source, the two were detained this morning.

However, the reason for their arrest remains unclear while MACC is expected to issue a statement on this soon.

On May 23, MACC seized RM500,000 in cash and RM1.2 million in various currencies from Azeez’s homes.

Bernama later reported that the raids were to facilitate investigations into the appointment of contractors involving Tabung Haji projects.

The case is being investigated under Section 16 of the MACC Act 2009 pertaining to soliciting/receiving gratification.

Meanwhile, Sinar Harianreported that former premier Najib Abdul Razak’s stepson Riza Aziz was also spotted at the MACC headquarters this morning.

MACC turns guns on Umno’s Azeez in Baling, Subang raids

May 23, 2018

The raids were carried out yesterday as part of a corruption probe involving a contract linked to Tabung Haji.


KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has conducted raids at three locations linked to Umno Supreme Council member Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim, believed to be over projects awarded by pilgrimage fund Lembaga Tabung Haji which he chairs.

The anti-graft body’s Perlis director Mohd Shukor Mahmud confirmed the raids to Malay-language daily Berita Harian, but did not state whether Azeez had been arrested.

Azeez, who is the Baling MP, retained his seat in the May 9 polls.

A source earlier told Bernama that the raids were carried out at noon yesterday in Subang and Baling, Kedah.

MACC officers have also visited the Tabung Haji head office in Jalan Tun Razak.

FMT’s attempts to contact Azeez have so far failed.

“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.

Baling MP: “Balik Tongsan” part of friendly banter

PETALING JAYA: The “balik tongsan” remark directed at Opposition MPs was part of friendly banter, said Baling MP Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim

In a telephone call to The Star from Mecca, Abdul Azeez said that he had been called “tambi” and “mamak” many times in the Dewan Rakyat but he took it all in stride.

The Tabung Haji director said it was well known that he had good relationship with Malaysians of all races and religions.

He said that his humanitarian work also covers all races and nationalities, adding that he hoped his track record would be considered.

“My friends in the media of all languages also know my good relations with all people and they can surely vouch that I am no racist,” said Abdul Azeez.

Abdul Azeez also said that he had apologised and retracted his remarks after he was ordered to do so by Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia.

Baling MP Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim was ordered to retract a “balik Tongsan” remark he made in the Dewan Rakyat yesterday.

Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia made the ruling after Anthony Loke (DAP-Seremban) pointed out that Abdul Azeez’s remark was against the Standing Orders.

Abdul Azeez had stood up to pose a question to Deputy Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi during the debate on Budget 2016 when he was interrupted by a few Opposition MPs.

Among the MPs was Jimmy Wong (DAP-Kota Kinabalu) to whom Abdul Azeez had first responded with: “Apek, duduklah.”

When Wong remained standing, Abdul Azeez told Wong to “balik Tongsan”, effectively telling him to return to his ancestral China.

“I order Baling to retract the statement completely, but any other MPs who use unparliamentary language next time will be ejected from the Dewan,” Pandikar warned.

Abdul Azeez also admitted to uttering pondan (transgender) in the House yesterday but denied that it was directed at a specific person.

Kasthuri Patto (DAP-Batu Kawan) claimed the remark was made against her.

Janarthani noted that Azeez was a repeat offender when it comes to such antics in Parliament.

“He was the same MP who said in April that non-Muslim women should not be invited to mosques because they mungkin bocor (might be menstruating), in response to the Kulai MP (Teo Nie Ching) being invited to a function in a surau.

Persatuan Kesedaran Komuniti Selangor (Empower) said it was outraged when Baling MP Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim was let off by the Dewan Rakyat despite using the pondan (transvestite) slur against fellow Batu Kawan MP Kasthuri Patto in the House.

“Empower is appalled to read reports that Azeez had used the slur pondan against a female MP during a debate and further compounded his offence the next day by calling another MP an apek and telling him to balik tong san (go back to China).

“We are further outraged that the speaker did not censure him for the use of these derogatory terms; merely that he should retract the use of balik tong san,” said Empower president A Janarthani.

Janarthani urged Dewan Rakyat speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia (photo) and BN to take belated action and censure Azeez for his unparliamentary and derogatory remarks.

She also called for a review of Parliament’s Standing Orders to prohibit sexist, racist and bigoted remarks.

“The Baling MP appears to enjoy the absence of any possible reprimand… (this) reflects a political scenario where sexist, homophobic and transphobic words are freely used against perceived opponents and where ethnic minorities are demonised or summarily ignored as unimportant.

“His impunity also reflects a country where women make up only 10.4 percent of the 222 parliamentarians and face multiple layers of discrimination, even in being nominated as election candidates,” she said.

Azeez had used the slur on Tuesday in the House after Kasthuri, who was speaking on Orang Asli issues, refused to allow the Baling MP to interject.

Azeez was let off the hook after Pandikar accepted his explanation that the slur was not directly aimed at Kasthuri when he said that she was ‘worse than a pondan’.

Baling MP ordered to retract ‘balik tongsan’ remark

Umno’s Baling MP Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim was ordered to retract a controversial “balik tongsan” remark he made in the Dewan Rakyat today by speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia.

Azeez made the remark, literally asking a person of Chinese ethnicity to return to his home country, at Jimmy Wong (DAP-Kota Kinabalu) while speaking during the Home Ministry’s wrap up of the Budget 2016 today.

His remark caused outrage among the opposition lawmakers.

Azeez also admitted to using the word “pondan” (transsexual) in the House yesterday, though he claimed it was not directed at anyone in particular.

Opposition lawmakers had claimed that Azeez had directed the remark at Kasthuri Patto (DAP-Batu Kawan).

But Pandikar said that the “pondan” remark need not be retracted as he was not the speaker in the House when it was made.

“Since I didn’t hear it, I will not ask for a retraction. But keep in mind, pondan is an unparliamentary word,” he said.

The spat today broke out when Wong tried to interrupt Azeez while he was directing a question at Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

“Sit down, apek!” Azeez said, before adding the “balik tongsan” remark. – November 4, 2015.
