After Discovering Gold Bars, MACC Is Urged To Unfreeze Aman Palestine's Account

Yesterday, Aman Palestin sent a letter to the Chief Commissioner of MACC and the Director of the Anti-Money Laundering Division (AMLA) with a notice under Section 44A of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorist Financing and Proceeds from Illegal Activities Act 2001 for the freezing order to be cancelled. or changed.

Muhammad Rafique said, Aman Palestine also urged Members of Parliament, whether government or opposition, to raise the issue in the Dewan Rakyat.

He also said that the issue of donations and aid to Palestine is a universal issue. The government must explain why the enforcement agencies under the government take actions to freeze accounts for humanitarian activities.

In addition, the media also reported that the MACC seized four gold bars in a series of raids at the Aman Palestine office on November 24. The 999.9 graded gold bars each weighed one kilogram and the other confiscated items were three laptops and four mobile phones.

Aman Palestine and the members of its Board of Directors are currently being investigated by the MACC. The first time the MACC came to the registered premises was on October 17 and no raids or arrests were made at that time.
