PENANG, 25 March 2009: Penang Gerakan wants state Parti Keadilan Rakyat chairperson Datuk Zahrain Mohamed Hashim to make public the party’s internal inquiry into allegations of corruption involving its members.
Its assistant secretary, Goh Kheng Sneah, said that not making public the findings would contradict the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coalition state government’s slogan of competency, accountability and transparency (CAT).
In a statement today, he said Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng should ensure that the state government and the PR component parties practised transparency when handling the case.
Goh said Lim should not conceal the weaknesses of the state government component parties.
On 23 March, Zahrain was reported as saying that PKR would not make public the findings of its internal inquiry into a quarry scandal and a special investigation panel headed by state Speaker Abdul Halim Hussain, who was in the process of finalising the investigation. — Bernama
