PSM: No-nonsense Latheefa’s first task is to probe Taib
PSM has described MACC’s new chief commissioner Latheefa Koya as a no-nonsense individual who would not compromise on wrongdoings.
Therefore, party central committee member S Arutchelvan is hoping she would investigate Sarawak Governor Abdul Taib Mahmud, who has been accused of corrupt practices during his tenure as the state’s chief minister.
“Why is there no investigation against Taib continues to be the biggest question. So her first task should be to look into this.
“Given her track record, we hope she would not buckle under pressure or allow certain politicians to dictate who MACC should or should not investigate,” he told Malaysiakinithis evening.
The DAP Youth has urged newly appointed MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya to reopen investigations into the death of party aide Teoh Beng Hock.
“It is with sincere hope that Latheefa will be implementing drastic measures in reforming MACC, eliminating the culture of corruption that permeates different levels, including launching new disciplinary investigation into the case of Teoh Beng Hock and taking firm actions against the officers involved in it,” DAP Youth deputy chairperson Chiong Yoke Kong said in a statement today.
Teoh, a DAP political aide, was found dead at the Selangor MACC headquarters in 2009. He was called there as a witness for a case.
Chiong said DAP Youth would never forget the tragedy of Teoh’s death, bringing up the suffering his family had to go through since his death.
