MACC, what about all these cases???

Questions are begging to be answered on the conduct of Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in taking swift action against the opposition whereas it drags its feet when complaints are made against BN.

DAP Perak secretary Nga Kor Ming has questioned MACC's impartiality in its investigations in corruption cases.

In an eight-point memorandum submitted by Perak Pakatan Rakyat to the state MACC in Ipoh yesterday, it pointed out:

  • Why all seven Selangor Chinese assemblypersons from Pakatan Rakyat state government were hauled in for questioning on the alleged abuses of their allocation of state funds. The general public would consider such action as racist.
  • Why was there no action taken by MACC against high-profile corruption cases such as that involving former Selangor menteri besar Mohd Khir Toyo in building his multi-million ringgit palatial home, Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin when he bought RM9.2 million in ECM Libra's shares, top politicians in the Port Klang Free Zone scandal, the vote-buying case against Malacca Chief Minister Ali Rustam and other billion-ringgit scandals in the country.
  • There were four alleged corruption reports lodged with MACC against the Perak BN state government but to date no action has been initiated by the commission.
1) Three reports of alleged corruption against the assemblypersons of Jelapang, Behrang and Chagat Jering who jumped from Pakatan to BN which lead to the collapse of the Pakatan state government.

2) The case involving the alleged illegal appointment of three special advisors to BN Menteri Besar Zambry Abdul Kadir which involves millions of taxpayers' money.

3) The collapse of the Perbadanan Taman Negeri Perak building in Gerik costing RM4.9 million.

4) The alleged sale of the agriculture land in Tambun worth millions by former BN agriculture executive councillor Radzi Manan.

“This non-action clearly shows the partiality of MACC in going for selective prosecution of opposition members while turning a blind eye to mammoth corruption cases involving BN members,” alleged Nga.
