Ever since a few key suspects in the Macau Scam were arrested, a handful of local celebrities were also questioned by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to determine if they had any connection to the infamous scam.
Comedian Shuib Sepahtu and wife, singer Siti Sarah, were among the first celebs to be called in and even had their assets frozen by MACC.
And now, cosmetics millionaire Datuk Seri Aliff Syukri has come forward to clear his name surrounding the allegations that he was involved in the Macau Scam.
Deny any involvement
Via his wife’s Instagram, Datin Nur Shahida, the couple addressed the Macau Scam along many other issues.
“During their visit, they took some items they felt that were necessary for the investigation. But Alhamdulillah, after the investigation we have been cleared.”
“My assets were not confiscated, I can still use and drive my car.”
Shahida then admitted that their accounts were initially frozen but only during the investigation and she already has access to it now.
She added that MACC may have made them suspects after Addy Kana and his wife came and stayed at Aliff Syukri's resort in August and uploaded photos of them together.
Earlier on, a lawyer’s letter representing Aliff Syukri went viral after its content, allegedly pleading the MACC to return the confiscated items following the investigation, were made public, which then led to speculations among netizens.
Well, the Macau Scam investigation isn’t over yet and we can’t wait to see the whole thing unfold soon.
