IRB RAIDS OFFICES OF COMPANIES BELONGING TO DR M's SONS
Mukhriz says he will give full cooperation to board
THE Inland Revenue Board (IRB) yesterday raided the offices of companies belonging to the sons of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
At Parliament yesterday, Mukhriz, who is a shareholder and chairman of Opcom Holdings Bhd, confirmed that IRB officers had raided the company, which deals in fibreoptic cabling.
The Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia deputy president said he would give full cooperation to the board.
“I think those guys are being professional.
“I expect to submit some documents to fulfil some of the requests, such as tax declaration forms and such,” he added.
Mukhriz said the authorities were looking for logs and transactions dating from 2011 to 2013.
While the IRB could not be contacted for comment as at press time, Dr Mahathir’s daughter, Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, was quoted by an online news portal as saying that the raids had taken place.
The news portal reported that IRB officers also raided Kenchana Capital Sdn Bhd yesterday. Kenchana is owned by Dr Mahathir’s second son, Tan Sri Mokhzani Mahathir.
Files of 11 companies under Kenchana had been confiscated while Mokhzani was overseas.
IRB officers also raided companies associated with Tan Sri Mirzan Mahathir.
