MACC urged to reveal details of Taib probe

Joseph Tawie

The Movement of Change Sarawak (MoCS) is urging the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the Rulers’ Conference not to accept recommendations to appoint Taib as the head of state.

KUCHING: The Movement for Change Sarawak (MoCS), which has been at the forefront of calls for allegedly corrupt Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud to step down, now wants the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the Rulers’ Conference to step in.

MoCS wants the King to direct the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to expedite its investigations into alleged reports of corruption and blatant abuse of power by Taib.

In a statement yesterday, MoCS also said it wants the details of the MACC investigations into Taib to be revealed to the public.

The movement also wants the King and the Rulers’ Conference not to accept any recommendation to appoint Taib as the Yang Di-Pertua Negeri of Sarawak.

These requests are contained in a memorandum which will be submitted to the palace in Kuala Lumpur on June 13 by MoCS KL coordinator Ronald Sia.

Accusing the MACC of dragging its feet, MoCS asked: “Why does it take so long for MACC to carry out its investigations?

“All the evidence is already there following reports after reports which have been lodged against the chief minister.

“By now, not only the investigations that should have been carried, but the progress and details of the investigations should have been revealed to the public,” the statement said.

MoCS was alluding to reports that the MACC was investigating Taib over allegations of timber corruption.

MACC chief Abu Kassim Mohamed had reportedly said that the commission was gathering data on the matter following a similar action by the Swiss Anti-Corruption Agency, which recently froze Taib’s assets over allegations of timber corruption.

Swiss Federation president Micheline Calmy-Rey had in April said they were aware of the allegations and had forwarded the information on Taib’s assets in Switzerland to its regulatory body, Finma (the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority) for investigation.

Meanwhile, Bernama yesterday quoted Sarawak Barisan Nasional (BN) secretary-general Stephen Rundi as urging Sarawakians not to pre judge the on-going probe.

He said any report or information on the matter remained allegations until proven otherwise by the authority concerned.

  3. HOW CAN THEY HAVE TIME FOR TAIB?

    THEY HAVE NOT EVEN SOLVED THE TEOH BENG HOCK AND SABARNI CASES OR EVEN GOT STARTED.

    YOU WONDER IF THEY ARE WORKING EFFICIENTLY OR JUST CLOCK WATCHING?

    BAD RELECTION ON THE “PUBLIC SERVICE”- JUST THERE TO COLLECT BRIBES AND SALARIES (& scratch their backsides)

  4. Sarawak Constitution says that the Head of State is also the Head of Islam in Sarawak.

    To have a non-Muslim to be the Head of Islam is against the constitution and is a sacrilege against Islam.

    Taib is not a true Muslim because he worships devils through listening to and obeying Bomohs instead of worshipping and obeying the almighty Allah. Allah Akbar!

    There is no god but Allah. By worshipping devil, Taib is not a true Muslim.

    Taib is also a Freemason. Freemasons worship a different god and not Allah. Therefore, Taib by being a Freemason, which is condemned by Islam, is not a Muslim.

    Taib cannot be appointed Head of State of Sarawak because it will be unconstitutional and against Islam and very, very wrong.

    We Muslim can never accept a non-Muslim to be the Head of our religion!!

    • Good Point!

      But when was Islam the official religion of a minority of group in Sarawak

    • A highly respectable, credible and apolitical Malay Muslim should be the right man to be the governor of Sarawak from now on. I believe all races will share this view and the search for the man should be done now by the rakyat to be recommended to be the next governor.

      The thief minister can no longer deceive the Dayaks who forms the majority in Sarawak that as a Melanau himself he is constitutionally a Dayak and hence represent the majority. Taib Mahmud can no longer deceive the Malays that his personal choice of the current governor is based on the fact that Tun Sallehudin is a Muslim although he is not a Malay.

      • SERVE THE PEOPLE WITHOUT FEAR OR FAVOUR!

        Hahaha- we are sounding like the Malayan UMNO politicians. We have learned well their racial politics!

        We only learned the bad parts.

        In Malaya there is a shift in the racial mindset. There is talk of PAS standing in Chinese seats and Indians and Chinese are voting for PAS etc.

        Here we still thrive on one- upmanship! Malay or Dayak but never Chinese? Is that fair and equal treatment of all Sarawakians regardless of race or religion?

        Without meaning offence Dayaks appear so easy to appease from vote buying to army generals.

        Since Dayaks are the majority why don’t we have a Dayak Governor ? After the appointment if one Dayak General in the Malayan colonial army all the grumblings about promotion has quietened for another 50 years. A Dayak governor will keep the Dayaks quiet for another 100 years. A Dayak CM (not Taib) will keep them quiet for ever. So KL take note do the right thing and you can rule and plunder Sarawak forever!

        Kuala Lumpur is happy for us to fight over the scraps as long as we don’t challenge its colonial control over us.

        For Sarawak the best is to appoint a person regardless of his race or sex to be the Governor a position. This position has little political significance unless it is misused as during the Ningkan “constitutional” crisis.

        We need to strive for a fairer and more equal Sarawak and not be victims of Malayan divide and rule politics!

      • From KL’s point of view such an apolitical candidate has to be Brain Dead.

    • Dear Irene

      You must include also people like Onn Mahmud, Abdul Aziz Hussein, Getti, Awang Tengah, Hasmi Hasnan, Hamid Bugo, Bujang Nor.

      Police reports should also be lodged and MACC should also investigate these people.

      • Yes I fully agree with you Ahmad and an apology is due for my oversight. Sarawak is our asset and our childrens’ asset. Together it is our collective responsibility to do what is the only right thing to do to safeguard our asset and save Sarawak.

    • When it concerns BN leaders, they are innocent until proven guilty, but if it concerns Pakatan Rakyat, the leaders are already guilty before having to prove it.

      • This double standard is the trademark of a corrupt to the core of BN govt under the control of the notorious Taib. Sarawakians must get rid of Taib at all cost .

    • Also the 49 companies linked to Taib and his timber tycoon cronies who have been getting off very lightly in the anti-logging war.

  6. Sarawak has enough of top legal brains to form a restitution team to help obtain documentary proofs of Sarawak thief minister Taib Mahmud’s investments overseas. MACC is giving excuses for being slow and having to face red tapes in obtaining documentary proofs from foreign countries.

  7. IF UMNO APPOINTS TAIB AS “HEAD OF STATE” THERE WILL BE NO INVESTIGATION & THIS IS THEIR DEAL NOT TO EXPOSE EACH OTHER.

    Hopefully the Swiss investigation will be successful then it will be hard for UMNO to promote Taib.

    If they make him the “head” before this is done, Taib’s head should roll after the Swiss government establishes his corruption.

    If UMNO does not give him the “CHOP” UMNO will look really like shit to the whole world- how else to put it!?
