PETALING JAYA - Six bank accounts connected to allegations of channelling of funds to the Prime Minister have been frozen.

In a joint statement, the special task force which was formed to probe the allegations, stated that the order to freeze the accounts was issued on July 6.

"The special task force has also obtained documents on 17 accounts in two banks to assist investigations.

"Several documents pertaining to not complying with Bank Negara Malaysia's rules and procedures were also seized," the statement said.

As investigations are still under way, the task force has urged all parties to give their co-operation to allow for the probe to be completed.
