Cash-strapped Selangor Umno has been forced to rent out its 10-storey headquarters after their accounts were frozen by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) last year, which also hit the party with a forfeiture suit earlier this week.
The Selangor Umno division has been forced into putting its headquarters for rent.
Sources said the party is now looking at alternative options to house its office, with a return to its old headquarters in Jalan Ipoh mooted.
Investigations into the 1MDB scandal last year was swiftly followed by the freezing of Umno accounts.
The building located in the heart of the state capital of Shah Alam was built in the late 1990s, which capped Umno’s long rule in the country’s richest state.
