After two reports have been lodged to MACC against Taib Mahmud, all Sarawakians have been waiting for the MACC next action.
These are not the only reports being lodged against Taib Mahmud, so far no action had been taken by MACC.
As reported in FreeMalaysiaToday on Wednesday, 30th June 2010, PKR Sarawak’s youth wing had officially asked the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate reports that Chief Minister Taib Mahmud heads a RM3 billion international business empire that he built with ill-gotten gains.
At the MACC office in Putrajaya on the same day, three Sarawakians acting as private citizens lodged a similar report against the Sarawak strongman.
Both reports allege that Taib is a corrupt politician who has abused his power, and both are based on articles carried by the news portal Sarawak Report.
The PKR youth wing lodged its report in Kuching yesterday. It plans to make similar reports at MACC offices nationwide, according to the wing’s Sarawak leader Ahmad Nazib Johari.
“We hope MACC will not cower in fear just because the case involves a high-profile individual,” he said.
“What is exasperating is hearing the MACC say that it will investigate the complaint but that the Attorney-General’s office will decide whether to prosecute or not.”
He alleged that Taib had acquired immense wealth by abusing state resources and had channelled those riches to his children, Abu Bekir, Jamilah and Sulaiman, and a relative, Onn Mahmud.
“They are so rich that they can afford to buy assets abroad,” he said.
“It is hard to imagine that a Chief Minister earning RM20,000 a month can posses assets worth billions through legitimate means.”
Second time around
The three who lodged their complaint in Putrajaya were Ting Cek Ming, Kung Chin Chin and John Brian Anthony.
Ting, accompanied by Ahmad Najib and one James Wong, had tried to lodge a similar report in Shah Alam last week, but decided against it when the MACC office there refused to give them a copy of the handwritten complaint.
“This time,” said Ting, “we came with a typed copy of the report and the MACC officer signed it as acknowledgement of receipt.”
According to Sarawak Report, the Taib family have assets in Canada, Australia and Britain. It also claims that Taib, his family and close friends own 85 percent of Cahaya Mata Sarawak, said to be the biggest conglomerate in the state.
Wahahah…. What a big business our CM had in Canada. Imagine when CMS dominated by those wolves, people in the country suffering high cost of cement price due to no competition from other company. It reflects the price of building materials as well as the cost of a house. Sooner or later, our Dayak fellows with average wages will turn back into 25years backward – migrate to longhouses with a little hope that NCR land well preserved without BN YB’s Taihci business….
