MACC Taskforce for Taib probe: Pussycats against Tiger Taib!

_______________________________________________________________

MACC announced that it had set up a Task Force to probe Sarawak Chief Minister, Abdul Taib Mahmud, for corruption.

With the MACC’s track record on the one hand, and Taib’s tigerish control of Sarawak on the other, we expect the probe to get nowhere slowly.

Several agencies roped into graft probe

a

PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission has set up a multi-agency task force to investigate allegations of graft against Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.

The task force consists of representatives from agencies such as the Attorney-General’s Chambers and the MACC itself to “speed up” the investigations.

A report will be submitted to Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail for action after investigations are completed.

The MACC said that once the investigations are completed and the Deputy Public Prosecutor has made a decision, an operations evaluation panel will appraise the integrity and impartiality of the commission in handling the probe.

“The panel consists of individuals from various professional backgrounds. The MACC is also constantly monitored by the Special Committee on Corruption, which was formed under the legislation according to Section 12 of the Anti-Corruption Commission Act,” the commission said in a statement.

The MACC said the committee members comprised representatives from Dewan Rakyat and Dewan Negara from both sides of the political divide.

‘Taib probe taking time over vast documents, witnesses’

The probe into corruption allegations against Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud has been prolonged by the vast number of documents and witnesses that investigators have to go through, said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

“There are many documents and many parties are involved as well as witnesses that are all over (the country),” MACC investigation division secretariat assistant commissioner Lim Bee Kean told a press conference at the commission’s headquarters in Putrajaya today.

NONELim (left) said to date the MACC has poured through more than 400 files and has recorded statements from more than 20 individuals who are believed to be linked to the matter.

As for the recent videos released by Global Witness showing Taib’s relatives claiming they could easily obtain state lands from the chief minister and also, trying to sell them to investors, Lim said a special team has been formed in parallel to the existing investigations against Taib.

“After the video linking to Taib Mahmud was released on YouTube, a team of 10 MACC investigators was formed to conduct the investigation.

“This is an additional measure, on top of the ongoing investigation before this,” she said.

“This is an additional measure, on top of the ongoing investigation before this,” she said.

A special task force had also been formed early this year, Lim added, with officers from the MACC, Attorney-General’s Chambers as well as other related agencies to help speed up the investigations.

“As soon as the investigation paper is completed, it will be presented to the Attorney-General’s Chambers for further action,” she said.

MACC plays down Taib’s ‘naughty, dishonest’ remark

Sarawak Chief Minister’s Abdul Taib Mahmud’s statement that he will not cooperate with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) because it is “naughty and dishonest” is a non-issue, the MACC said today.

NONEThis was because the chief minister of 32 years has denied making this statement, MACC investigation division secretariat assistant commissioner Lim Bee Kean (left) told a press conference at the commission’s headquarters in Putrajaya today.

“The question of Taib Mahmud not cooperating (with us) does not arise. This is because he has denied saying that the MACC was naughty and dishonest and that he will not cooperate (with the MACC),” Lim said.

Taib’s office was on April 12 reported to have denied that he made the remark, calling such media reports on this “false” and also said that the Sarawak chief minister does not comment on the duties of other departments.

Nevertheless, Taib was on April 4, after a BN supreme council meeting, recorded on video saying “they do not deserve my cooperation because they have been quite naughty” in reply to a question on whether he would cooperate with the MACC.

His response was sought to video clips released by international anti-corruption watchdog Global Witness showing Taib’s relatives claiming that they could easily get state lands from the chief minister and were offering to sell them to foreign investors.

    As with life & society, what you read & hear is just the iceberg’s tip. It’s much worse. Using public money (stolen from them indirectly) to buy votes to extend one’s evil stay, to deceive, to steal & plunder the people’s wealth & resources. This has gone on for 32 yrs now, & his Uncle before him! Someone was voted into office to serve the people. Before long he controls 3 supreme portfolios: CM, Finance Ministr & Ministr of Planng & Resource Managemt. He nominates the TYT/Governor, appoints the Deputy CM, all the state ministers, all the city mayors, all directors of state departments, none elected democratically! He has his strangle-hold on Land & Survey, Forest, timber processing, Dept of Agric. When the forest went bald they started oil palm! Now millions of acres. SCORE ! He Awards timber concessions, plantation land, development land, mining, road works, bridges & infrastructure contracts/contracts for decades without open tender; instead all the family, relatives & cronies got them all. Land grabs, collusion with timber, oil palm, shipping & developmt tycoons. Archipelago shipping, S’wak Securities, Bank Utama, CMS… Cousin Hamed Sepawie runs Sarawak Energy and the giant Naim Group, now logging in Tasmania! He cleaned up all the concessions & land at well below market prices yet amassed all the mega million projects with prices inflated for kickbacks. He controls the media, radio, papers (so the public get all the false or sweetened information) and immigration & blocks entries of righteous people. Astronomical gangsterism, lawlessness & crime! 2 suspicious deaths, Swiss Manser and his own aide Boyert in USA. The whole world can smell the stench. Yet he is super proud without an ounce of remorse. He is valued at US$10-20billion. The most horrific curse befits this kind of people & all his supporters who have destroyed the livelihood of millions or more people. Remote natives don’t even have electricity or decent drinking water. God awaits with the fire of hell that burns forever. Alan Newman (democratic & transparent NZ)
