JOHOR BARU – Reports have recently surfaced stating that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has begun investigations against a former minister.

Various portals, citing sources, pointed out that the person in question happens to be an 84-year-old former finance minister who served under Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s prime ministership, leading many to speculate that the individual concerned is none other than Tun Daim Zainuddin. 

Coincidentally, in 2021, Daim courted controversy when his name appeared in the Pandora Papers leak – an exposé by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) of key individuals and their links to offshore entities in various jurisdictions. 

Daim had responded to the revelations, telling Malaysiakini that he has paid taxes in all jurisdictions where he conducts business. He also said that not all firms he has links to are owned by him, explaining that they are partially controlled by his kin. 

This is what The Vibes has found out so far from ICIJ’s offshore database as well as British company searches and land registries.
