Cowgate: Talk straight please, MACC!

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) defended its position on December 16 with regards to the National Feedlot Centre scandal on two fronts: through the issue of a statement and at a press conference given by MACC chief commissioner Abu Kassim Mohamed after the closing ceremony of a MACC programme at the Anti-Corruption Academy .

In the statement quoted by Bernama, the MACC denied that it had not taken any action. It said that it did scrutinise the complaint from NGOs regarding the abuse of a government loan to purchase luxurious condominiums by National Feedlot Corporation, and found no corruption element, and hence passed the case to the police.

Atn the press conference, Abu Kassim said that since the scandal was exposed in the 2010 Auditor-General’s Report in October, the MACC had already started studying it from the corruption point of view., The issue of whether the MACC is or is not probing the case does not arise, since the MACC’s earlier measure to pass the case to police was only a response specifically directed at the particular complaint of irregularity in using the loan to purchase the condos. Since it was a case of misuse of public loan, it was forwarded to police for further investigation.

Abu Kassim further said that the public could have misunderstood the MACC, not knowing its working procedure. He stressed that the MACC has always practised the principle of probing corruption without fear or favour, regardless of whether the persons involved are Cabinet ministers or ordinary citizens.

We take it from this Abu Kassim statement that the earlier “passing the buck to police” move relates to only the condo purchase incident and not to other aspects of the scandal. Then, can Abu Kassim tell us now whether the MACC is investigating the entire NFC debacle?

WHY THE EERIE SILENCE?

And please tell us why the MACC has steadfastly kept its eerie silence for the past two months, while the controversy has been raging inside and outside Parliament, with numerous press conferences and Internet postings that produced heaps of evidence of corruption, abuse of power, collusion, breach of trust and criminal negligence by ministers and government officials in the award of project and disbursement of loan?

Abu Kassim, never mind about your so-called faithfully practised principle of investigation “without fear or favour”, just tell us plain and simple a) whether you agree or disagree that there are elements that justify the MACC to move in, and b) whether you have started investigation in earnest.

Since this is such a high-profile scandal that affects vital national interests, and the resolution of which will hinge the credibility of the entire Malaysian government, will Abu Kassim please be honest for once and tell the nation what exactly is the status of the MACC’s investigations with respect to this NFC fiasco. And what has the MACC done in the past two months towards seeking out the culprits and restoring some semblance of rule of law to this country?

No more hypocritical rhetoric please; just simple, honest answers.

  3. Abu Kassim just have to have a small vocabulary to work with. It’s just a misuse and nothing to do with abuse; it’s to do with loan irregularity and nothing to do with a breach of trust; moreover, as far as the loan goes …there is no interest! And Abu Kassim ain’t interested!

    And what does The Chairman of NFC do? He channelled free interest loan from the rakyat’s money to a subsidiary or associated company Meakworks to serve luscious beef dishes to the rich. And which company is directly associated with officially running a franchise of posh meat restaurants and outfits. Each franchise will cost you RM1.5million before even a poor Malaysian can smell cow curry!

    NFC is supposed to be a “national” project for “all” Malaysians who only eat 150 gms of meat in 12 months and he goes and feeds people who eat a cow every week while the rest of the 99% Malaysians eat only chikkin!

    Maybe we should slaughter Abu Kassim as he sounds like something good for our plate.

    But this is supposed to be 1Malaysia, which by the way is a philosophy, says the Prime Minister, Mohd Najib Tun Razak. The BN government had wanted all Malaysians to eat some 150gms of “sapi” say in 12 weeks instead of 52.

    But now with Abu Kassim’s MACC with such Integrity we should simplify things and make Malaysians eat little tablets of proteins we can make from NFC. We might make 1Malaysian prosperous with “pil sapi”. After all what’s the difference between 1Malaysia, the Philosophy and 1Malaysia the “Pil Sapi” ? Abu Kassim will not have to crack his kepala sapi with too big a vocabulary! 🙄

  6. When will we ever learn ? MACC is usless.
    All these crooks only want money and power shamlessly.
    There is no way we can get anything fair deal out of by dealing with crooks and theives.
    The whole juducial system in Malaysia is corrupted. All big businesess linked to politicians are corrupted.
    The only way out of this may be like Libya or Tunisia.

    • It is hard to win the war on corruption when BN always blatantly defending corruption. Fry the very big fish (or whale) such as Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud, and you will definitely see Malaysia improve 10-fold in the corruption index.

      The lack of will to tackle corruption can be traced to the policies of Umno government, who by placing race-based officers and the continued use of the crutch mentality, is encouraging its continuation.

      Instead of being Malaysian first, the elites in Umno promotes their own selfish policies to the detriment of the raykat.

    • NFC scandal is a clear case of CBT!

      This unelected backdoor minister and Wanita UMNO cowgirl chieftian has the cheek to say “I work hard too so I need a government project” !

      So it’s her right that she deserves some government project eh? Or is she a proxy for the bunch of corrupt UMNO leaders who wasted no time coming to her defense? I am really suspicious!

      Where is MACC, it’s RM250 million bucks of poor public hard earned funds and they don’t seem to be interested, still dragging their feet for instruction from above?

      MACC were never slow when it came to those on the other side of the political divide; they wasted no time on Teoh Beng Hock, Political Aide of Selangor State Executive Councillor Ean Yong!

      TBH was found dead after they aggressively pounced on him just to get his boss implicated for offense of “intending to deceive” …..involving RM2,000!. How amazing, they now drag their feet and stay dumb dumb when their UMNO masters invlved in $250millions bucks of poor rakyat money.

      • MACC has simple mind and so they are capable of investing small sum of money. They admit 250 million Ringgit matter is beyond MACC. MACC should be renamed Pejabat Dua Ribu Ringgit.

        The fact is AAB considered that UMNO did not have sufficient agency to help them win election through weeding out opposition politicians using rule by law. He created MACC to harass opposition party supporters. That was why even the Royal Commission of Inquiry was not able to make MACC investigate its own staff.
