Lim Guan Eng

MP SPEAKS | The comments by the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) on the two new charges against me for misappropriation of property, amounting to RM208.7 million under the penal code in relation to the tunnel and three highway project(tunnel project), has only reinforced public suspicion that the charges are politically motivated.
First, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), and now the AGC is going all out against me with their comments that they are 99 percent sure of a conviction in line with the Perikatan Nasional’s government new political strategy of “Ini semua salah Lim Guan Eng” (this is all Lim Guan Eng’s fault).
I had earlier faced three charges for corruption in relation to the tunnel project even though no corruption or gratification money was found in my personal bank account or in my possession as cash. And yet I am charged – “Ini semua salah Lim Guan Eng”.
The tunnel project was granted by open tender in 2013 decided by the Penang State Tender Board headed by the state secretary and other senior government officers. And yet I am charged when I am not in the State Tender Board – “Ini semua salah Lim Guan Eng”.
