Umno’s Baling MP Abdul Azeez Rahim has cried foul over Lembaga Tabung Haji’s police report against him, claiming that it was mala fide and an attempt to embarrass him.

The former Tabung Haji chairperson said the new leadership should have approached him for clarification.

“This is mala fide and an attempt to embarrass me and Tabung Haji.

“Tabung Haji never called me to allow me to defend myself. All funds were channelled into Yayasan Tabung Haji (YTH)

“Umno, the federal government and contributors put their faith in YTH,” he told a press conference at Parliament today.

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 30): Lembaga Tabung Haji has lodged two police reports against former office holders over the misuse of the pilgrim fund’s monies and for misrepresentation in a corporate deal.

In a statement today, Tabung Haji said the reports involve former chairman Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim, former chief executive officers, Tan Sri Ismee Ismail and Datuk Seri Johan Abdullah, as well as four senior management staff.

It identified the four as chief operating officer Datuk Adi Azuan, chief financial officer Datuk Rozaida Omar, legal adviser Hazlina Mohd Khalid and senior general manager for corporate services and real estate Rifina Md Ariff.

Tabung Haji said the first report lodged with the Commercial Crime Investigation Department involves Yayasan Tabung Haji’s (YTH) 2017 programme, whereby funds totalling over RM22 million were disbursed for activities with political inclinations in contravention of YTH’s memorandum and articles of association.

YTH’s trustees then were Abdul Azeez, Ismee, Johan, Adi and Rozaida.

YTH was set up in 2016 to undertake humanitarian aid and to contribute to the underprivileged, poor and the needy.

Tabung Haji said it had contributed RM7 million to the programme.

The second report was against Ismee, Hazlinda and Rifina, and relates to misrepresentations and the withholding of material information involving Tabung Haji’s 2012 sale of a 95% stake in PT TH Indo Plantations held by its subsidiaries, TH Indopalms Sdn Bhd and TH Indo Industries Sdn Bhd.

The 95% stake was sold to PT Borneo Pacific for US$910 million.

TH Indo Plantations owns a total of 83,000 hectares of palm oil estates in Indonesia.

Tabung Haji said the reports lodged today are the first following internal investigations into past transactions, which were spearheaded by the new management since July this year.
