Meet ‘mamak’ Abdul Azeez – The crook who disguised as a good Muslim to steal, loot & plunder

The MACC has arrested again Baling MP Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim, with sources saying he will be charged [today].

They said Azeez is being held for questioning over corruption and money-laundering allegations.

“It is said that he received corrupt money from many contractors who wanted to secure projects from the government,” the highly-placed sources said.

Azeez was seen at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya at 2.55pm [yesterday] where he was arrested.

Previously, Azeez and his brother were detained by the MACC in September and remanded for four days.

Azeez’s son was also arrested for a day in October.

On May 23 MACC had raided and seized RM500,000 in cash and RM1.2 million in various currencies from Azeez’s residences.

Bernama later reported that the raids were to facilitate investigations into the appointment of contractors involving Tabung Haji projects.

The case was investigated under Section 16 of the MACC Act 2009 pertaining to soliciting or receiving gratification.
