In 2018, 10 days after Pakatan Harapan form the government, Azeez Rahim’s place of residence and offices was visited by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission simultaneously. Azeez Rahim was slapped with multiple dubious charges of corruption and money-laundering which he had pleaded not guilty to all the charges after they were read out before the Sessions Court Judge. These charges utterly has no association with either Tabung Haji (TH) or 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). However, it was portrayed differently through some channels of media. Azeez Rahim maintains his innocence by extending his fullest cooperation to the authorities throughout the whole process of the case and quoting his exact words to the media; “I am a parliamentarian, I will give my full cooperation to assist in any investigation”.
