Datuk Seri Aliff Syukri Kamarzaman has made an appeal to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to release all his frozen assets.
In a news report yesterday, an appeal letter for the agency to release the assets was filed by lawyers representing the cosmetics millionaire.
The assets belonging to Aliff and his wife Datin Nur Shahida Mohd Rashid were confiscated on Oct 1.
The news report also said that the application had been filed according to Section 44 (1) of the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act (Act 613).
In an earlier news report, the 33-year-old businessman and singer denied his involvement in the Macau Scam, and that his wealth was the result of his hard work.
“Why are people questioning my wealth? What they don’t know is how hard I’ve been working 24-7 to make an honest income. And I’m thankful that I can still do so despite the coronavirus pandemic which had affected many people.
“Please be smart when making comments and don’t simply accuse me of being involved in the Macau Scam,” he said in one of the videos shared on his Instagram. Nst
