Anwar’s statement can affect investigation: MACC

PENANG, 20 Feb 2009: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s statement on allegations of corruption involving a Barisan Nasional (BN) leader and the Parti Keadilan Rakyat state assemblyperson for Kulim will adversely affect investigation into the case.

MACC chief commissioner, Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan, said the commission was conducting investigation into the case.

“The Kulim case is being investigated and is not completed and Anwar’s statement, to me, will affect investigation,” he said.

He said investigation began after a report was made by Kulim assemblyperson Lim Soo Nee.

“MACC is conducting investigation into the case. However there are differences in the facts that he (Lim) himself presented,” Ahmad Said said at a news conference after the ground-breaking ceremony for Penang MACC staff quarters here today.

He said this when asked to comment on Anwar’s allegation in Parliament that former Kedah menteri besar Datuk Seri Mahadzir Khalid had tried to bribe the Kulim assemblyperson to jump party and join the BN

Ahmad Said also did not rule out the possibility that the MACC would call up Anwar about his statement yesterday. — Bernama

    Ok, tell us how will Anwar’s statement affect your investigations? Ahmad acts like an Umno man through and through. How is it that he has not found a single Umno leader guilty of corruption?

  2. doinkers says:

    Well, duh. Of course it’ll affect investigations. Anwar did all the work for them. And since the evidence points to Umno people, the MACC needs to throughly fabricate new evidence to show corruption on the PR side.

    See, it’s all check and balance. Who says BN is not fair.

  3. Jason says:

    How could Anwar’s statement on the Kulim case “affect investigation”, but Ahmad Said’s statement on Khalid’s cow case is ok? Very obvious, MACC is independent – yeah right!

  4. Lee says:

    Please do not insult the general public’s intelligence. Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim’s investigation took less than two months to arrive at a finding whereas the Kulim Adun’s case is taking almost a year and is still under investigation.

  5. Tommy says:

    Anwar says RM5mil involved but Lim did not say anything about the money. So MACC says different facts, so no case.

    Next to investigate Anwar for false accusations. Strong case for fabricating facts. So who is the boss?
