FIVE people whose names were mentioned in an @EdisiSiasat tweet regarding alleged misconduct and abuse of power in Majlis Amanah Rakyat’s (Mara) investment holding company Mara Corp have lodged a police report.

Noor Irwan Marmin, Iskandar Zainudin, Rizal Abdul Gani, Mohd Faizal Mohd Top, and Mohd Firdaus Zubir file a report against Mara Corp executive director Suhaili Abdul Rahman, who had accused them of “not following proper procedures when making backdated claims and allowances”.

In the police report sighted by The Malaysian Insight, four of them, Noor Irwan, Rizal, Faizal and Firdaus denied that they had breached the procedures as alleged by Suhaili in an official letter to Mara chairman Azizah Mohd Dun on Jan 30.

In the letter to Azizah, which was also forwarded to The Malaysian Insight, Suhaili had asked for an independent investigation to be conducted on the five men.

“In the official letter dated Jan 30 to Mara chairman Azizah Mohd Dun, we strongly denied the accusations thrown against us and at no time we have committed any wrongdoing as mentioned in the letter.”

“The signatory (Suhaili) has clearly defamed us and we urged an investigation to be carried out to probe on the leaked documents as published by @edisisiasat on Twitter,” the four men said in their police report.

Meanwhile, Iskandar, in a separate police report, said Suhaili did not refer to the Mara board of directors before sending the letter of investigation to Azizah.

He said by not referring to the board of directors, Suhaili was trying to divert the real attention of alleged misconduct in Mara to others.

“An internal issue involving Suhaili was detected and action has been taken. The issue was regarding  the use of company corporate card credit which was discovered since early 2020. He has clearly violate Mara’s policy by using the credit card for his own use and political activities,” Iskandar said in his report.

Suhaili is a member of the Bersatu supreme council.

Yesterday, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said it will open an investigation into investment company Mara Corp, following allegations of power abuse and mismanagement.

In a statement, the MACC said it had received a report and will start investigation on Monday by recording statements from several Mara Corp witnesses.

On Friday, Azizah said it had begun an investigation into Mara Corp.

She said Mara viewed seriously the unauthorised public dissemination of internal administrative documents, which she said had cast a negative light on Mara and its subsidiaries.

Azizah also denied the allegations, after internal documents of Mara Corp were leaked online, questioning the integrity of some of its officers. – February 6, 2022.
