Umno wants cops to return party ‘funds’ seized in Najib raid

KUALA LUMPUR, May 24 — Umno has requested the police return the money confiscated from its former president Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s house on Jalan Langgak Duta on May 17, claiming it is part of the party’s campaign funds.

The Umno Strategic Communications Unit said the funds were obtained from donations for GE14, and are also meant for Umno’s management.

“It is both regrettable and disappointing when the remainder of Umno’s funds for campaigning were confiscated while being transferred to the new Umno leadership following the resignation of Datuk Seri Najib Razak as Umno and BN president,” it said in a statement on the party’s official website this evening.

According to the Umno unit, political funding is allowed by law.

“Therefore, Umno is working to restore these funds and requests that the police release the funds to the party as soon as the authorities complete their investigations.

“Umno is now in the process of rebuilding the party and the return of these funds will help strengthen the rebuilding process,” it added.-Malay Mail
