The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has asked opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim to assist in providing information regarding the Pandora Papers expose.

MACC said in a statement that it would work with Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and other relevant agencies to investigate the matter.

“As such, MACC is asking Anwar to assist if he has further information regarding the issue,” it said.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Abd Jalil Hassan meanwhile said that four police reports had been received on the matter.

The Pandora Papers expose is related to private documents linked to rich and influential individuals around the world who hid their wealth using offshore companies and incognito bank accounts.

Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob had said that the government would leave it up to the authorities to take action against any party involved in the issue.

On Monday, Finance Minister Tengku Zafrul Aziz was reported to have said that BNM was ready to cooperate with law enforcement agencies to monitor and investigate documents contained in the Pandora Papers involving individuals in the country.
