What’s the status on Taib, MACC?

Joseph Tawie

With Swiss MPs pushing for their government to freeze Chief Minister Taib Mahmud’s assets, eyes are now on MACC’s as yet undisclosed investigations.

Sarawak DAP today demanded to know the progress of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s investigations into Chief Minister Taib Mahmud’s properties allegedly worth billions of ringgit.

State party secretary Chong Chieng Jen said it has been two years since MACC opened a file on Taib.

“But until today, I have not seen any progress of the investigation. MACC should speed up its investigation.

“In the meantime, MACC should have frozen Taib’s accounts and access to properties,” said Chong, who is the Kota Sentosa assemblyman and the MP for Bandar Kuching.

Asked to comment on Swiss MPs tabling a motion to freeze Taib’s assets, Chong said that he would defer his views until the Swiss parliament decides on the issue.

“I would not comment now, because I want to know whether the Swiss government has agreed with the motion,” he said.

According to a statement from Bruno Manser Fund, 22 MPs had on Monday tabled a motion at the Swiss Parliament seeking to freeze Taib’s assets in Switzerland following shocking disclosure of his son’s wealth by his estranged daughter-in-law Shanaz Majid in a Malaysian court during her divorce proceedings.

In the motion, the MPs described Taib as ‘having abused his public office in a spectacular way’ and referred to Shanaz’s sworn testimony as evidence of how he “illicitly” enriched himself and his family.

It is reported that Taib and his family members allegedly owned 49 companies in eight countries worth RM46.5 billion.

In Sarawak the list of 13 companies include the following:

  • Cahaya Mata Sarawak (CMS) and its subsidiaries involved in the controlling of cement, construction projects, roads and roads repairs and dam construction;
  • Titanium Management Sdn Bhd dealing with the construction of more than 300 bridges;
  • Mornada Sdn Bhd was alienated 269 acres of prime state land at BDC Stampin;
  • Sarawak Cable Sdn Bhd, Trenergy Infrastructure Sdn Bhd; and
  • Ta Ann dealing with logging.

  4. A criminal with grip on 3 super posts: CM, Finance Minister, Minister of Planng & Resource Managemt. Nominates the TYT/Governor, appoints the Dep CM, all the ministers, all the city mayors, all directors of departments. Awards timber concessions for decades without tenders. Land grabs, collusion with timber, oil palm , shipping & development tycoons. Cousin runs the Energy and the giant Naim Group. Devours all the mega million projects with prices inflated for kickbacks, control the media….Cling to power for 31 years and wanting to be TYT. Now upcoming cronies plotting to take over and plunder another 30 yrs. Even USA Pres Obama needs senate approvals for appointments. What kind of democracy is this? Hell broke lose! This is not a can but a sea of worms, maggots, devils & monsters. Your CM is rated at some RM50billion, and look at your rural living conditions. And you can tolerate another day without protest?

  5. Now the case files are kept in KIV, and NFA so far because JibGor is busy taking care his own balls. These cases will be opened when PR take over Putrajaya with the MACC heads changed and AG replaced. No use chasing MACC becos they will say ” masih dalam siasatannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn”

    So if you want see actions on these, you must decide your vote action comes GE13

  8. The corruption files on the paramount thief minister Taib Mahmud must be a few storey high. It will take at least 100 years to go through them.
