I have today lodged a police report against MCA for receiving RM16.5 Million in 2013 from Dato Seri Najib which originated from 1MDB.
Former MCA president Chua Soi Lek has admitted that MCA did receive the funds from Najib in 2013 and the money is now proven to be originated from 1MDB.
Under Penal Code Section 411, whoever dishonestly receives or retains any stolen property, knowing or having reason to believe the same to be stolen property, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to five years or with fine or with both.
Wee Ka Siong as the MCA President currently had knowledge that the RM16.5 Million received by MCA in 2013 was stolen funds from 1MDB thus should not retain the money anymore.
Should Wee Ka Siong refuse to return the money and continue to retain it, he can be investigated under Penal Code Section 411.
I urge Wee Ka Siong to immediately return the money to 1MDB as the money belongs to the people and MCA has no reason and moral ground to retain the funds.
