Wives can be charged under the Anti-Money Laundering Act if they hide any misappropriation of funds by their husbands.
Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad (pix) said wives can be considered accomplices in committing the crimes.
“In the Anti-Money Laundering Act, people can be convicted of a crime if they do not take steps to verify the source of their gains.”
According to him, wives have a role in ensuring their husbands are not involved in corruption.
He said this is by staying informed on their husbands salaries, as well as questioning their source of income.
