KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Friday seized RM550,000 at the house of Rural and Regional Development Ministry secretary-general Datuk Mohd Arif Ab Rahman.
An MACC source said the cash seized at the house were foreign currencies comprising the British pound, euro and Singapore dollar.
"The money was hidden by a son of the suspect at the house in USJ, Subang Jaya.
"We have recorded the son's statement to facilitate investigations," the source told Bernama.
MACC Deputy Chief Commissioner (Operations) Datuk Azam Baki, when contacted, confirmed the seizure of the cash but declined further comment.
To date, there has been no new arrest.
Cash and gold bars worth more than RM5mil have been seized by the MACC, following the arrest of Mohd Arif, 59, at his residence on Wednesday.
His two sons, aged 29 and 34, were detained when they gave statements at the MACC headquarters on the same day.
They have been remanded for seven days until Jan 11 to facilitate investigations into alleged abuse of power and position to accept bribes.
