PENANG, 20 Feb 2009: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Agency (MACC) said today it has proof and evidence to charge Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim in connection with the allegations of abuse of power in the maintenance of a luxury car and purchase of sacrificial cows.

MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan said the commission had completed its investigations and it was now up to the Attorney-General to take further action.

“The MACC can decide but it’s better for the Attorney-General to consider and take action. It involves a VIP and we have to be fair to everyone,” he told a news conference after performing the ground-breaking ceremony for the Penang MACC quarters building here.

He said that from the technical point of view, there was evidence pertaining to the allegations.

Abdul Khalid has been accused of using state government funds for the maintenance of his personal sports utility vehicle (SUV), a Lexus bearing the number plate WQR779, and the purchase of 46 sacrificial cows costing RM10,400 for sacrifice.

On another matter, Ahmad Said said the MACC would also investigate allegations of abuse of power by Perak legislative assembly Speaker V Sivakumar for suspending Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir and his six state executive councillors from the assembly.

“If it’s true that there has been abuse of power, the MACC will take appropriate action,” he added. — Bernama

    Holy cow, if as written by Bernama, Abdul Khalid is using government funds to maintain his personal car, why on earth did they disclose his car registration number? Isn’t that a no no…. Well, unless the news is sponsored by Magnum…….

  2. PM says:

    The way Ahmad Said conducts himself, it is pretty obvious that the MACC is not an independent and impartial agency. Someone is pulling the strings, and it does not take rocket science to guess who.

    Just got me wondering, why when.PR members are concerned MACC is super efficient. But when BN members are concerned it takes such a long time, and most are still under investigation …

    MACC looks like it’s the best weapon of Umno to eliminate PKR leadership.

    Cowabunga! You mean they are into sacrificing cows too?

    Could there be some hocus pocus going on behind the scenes? And add in a dabble of Elixir of Night, unicorn hair and tongkat ali?

    Purchase of 46 sacrificial cows costing RM10,400 for sacrifice – that’s really cheap. About RM460 each, much cheaper than a goat. If it were Umno I bet it would run into the millions.

    MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan does not make sense. With corruption allegations running into the billions with Umno, no action taken. But against PR MP, it is super fast action.

    Whenever there is a by-election, BN will start their ground work by pouring into the constituency tarred roads, street lamps, donations to Chinese and Tamil schools, and even money to bribe voters. So what is so wrong with Tan Sri Khalid giving away cows to his constituents in Bandar Tun Razak during a Muslim holy day? Unless he himself had pocketed 46 cows for his own personal consumption which the MACC must prove, why don’t the agency stop wasting time and focus on the big fish in Umno?

    MACC deals with investigations relating to corruption. So now they want to investigate Perak legislative assembly speaker V Sivakumar for “abuse of powers”? I wonder whether Ahmad Said has his job description properly defined.
