ALOR STAR – Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir is urging Kedah Menteri Besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor to lodge a police report over the latter’s claim that his predecessor had transferred RM13 million in Kedah Menteri Besar Inc funds to an offshore account.

Speaking to the media after the state assembly session today, Sanusi had claimed the funds were transferred to an account in Canada back when Mukhriz was menteri besar.
 
“This is the first time I’m hearing about this incident. So, I would like to suggest Sanusi file a police report if he really believes that this happened.
 
“In today’s assembly session, he was reprimanded for making controversial statements. So, in making such a statement during a press conference, it is a serious allegation,” Mukhriz said.
 
“We hope we can get an official statement because he (Sanusi) should not have made this  accusation just like that, as if it was a hit-and-run.
 
“The allegation needs to be proven and I don’t even know what the story is. I am waiting for an official statement on the allegations,” he told an online press conference today.
 
Sanusi made the claims after saying that Mukhriz had brought up old issues in the assembly.

“I have never told anyone about this (RM13 million)… only today I am revealing. That is an old issue, which I have never raised before. I’m still keeping the transfer slip,” Sanusi had said. – The Vibes, September 21, 2021

Lodge report over RM13mil bank transfer or say sorry, Mukhriz tells Sanusi

ALOR SETAR: Mukhriz Mahathir has demanded that Kedah menteri besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor make a police report on an alleged RM13 million transfer to a Canadian bank account from a state-owned company or apologise and retract his remarks on the matter.

This came after Sanusi said the sum was remitted by Kedah Menteri Besar Incorporated during Mukhriz’s time as MB to a Barclays Bank account.

Mukhriz said following Sanusi’s remarks, many had perceived that he was behind the bank transfer.

“He must be responsible with whatever he says. I take the comment seriously.

“Lodge a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission or the police so that a thorough probe can take place.

“Or else, I challenge the MB to say sorry and withdraw his remarks,” he said at a press conference today.

Mukhriz said Sanusi’s claims had no basis and he would consider “follow-up action” based on advice from his lawyers.

“I deny any involvement in this. I’m shocked over these wild allegations, and since it is publicised, it casts a bad image of me, the party I represent and the previous Kedah government I led,” he said.
