Taib: I won’t cooperate with naughty, dishonest MACC

Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud has today accused the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) investigation of himself for graft as “victimisation”, reserving his cooperation as he believes that they have been “naughty and dishonest”.

“They (MACC) don’t deserve my cooperation because they have been naughty… and they have not been honest,” he said when met after attending the BN supreme council meeting in Kuala Lumpur today.

However, he stressed that he is not afraid of being investigated by the anti-graft body.

“Let them victimise me… Let them do what they want as long as they are fair, I am not scared,” said the veteran BN politician.

When asked if he feels that the shadow of the corruption investigation made him a liability to BN, Taib has dismissed the matter.

“I am a liability? I won the last election with more than two-thirds majority and they do not care about this thing,” responded the long-time Sarawak chief minister.

‘MACC probe has no major impact’

He also dismissed the MACC investigation as not having a major impact on the support of the Sarawakians for him and the BN coalition.

NONE“It is out of tune with the local sentiments,” he argued.

NONELast month, international corruption watchdog Global Witness had released a video expose of alleged corruption in the Sarawak timber industry by hiring an actor posing as a foreign timber investor.

In the expose released simultaneously on broadcaster Al-Jazeeraand Malaysiakini, the actor made video records of his conversation with close relatives and self-professed confidants of Taib, who had allegedly offered him land still inhabited by natives and offered to show him how to cheat his way out of paying taxes.

The relatives of Taib were also depicted as being very dismissive of native rights.

Taib has sincedismissed the conversations as “normal business discussions” by several individuals who had overstated their importance and relations to him for try and win business from the actor involved.

  1. Taib Mahmud will not cooperate with MACC. Taib Mahmud will not step down as the thief minister of Sarawak. Taib Mahmud will not stop stealing from Sarawakians. Taib Mahmud will not listen to the Dayaks squatting on state lands designated by his administration. You can ask Adenan Satem if Taib Mahmud cares at all. No, Taib Mahmud does not care and will not give a shit.

  5. If indeed MACC had been naughty for accepting many bribes from Taib Mahmud before, the thief minister must prove it and lodge a report with the Police. MACC could only be dishonest,in the words of Taib, if it had accepted many bribes before to close one eye in the last 33 years and is now investigating Taib.

  6. Again he insulted the Government legislations. He is nyanyuk already, he is loses his mind. He has no good quality as a leader, the whole family hate their own people. The whole family of Taib married with different races. They hate Sarawakian and will never do anything good for the Sarawakian. Indeed, he must be gone…. by force.

  9. It would be wise of this BUAYA to vanish into the thin air before the law catches up on him. The world is watching and he cannot get away with more lies. I hope BN will suffer its worst defeat because of him, Musa, Najib, Gani Patail, Mathatir, Ibarahim Ali, Nazri, Hisahm and Zahid. All these criminals have been acting above the law for too long already. A change of entity will ensure these morons will be brought to justice with all the ill-gotten moneyreturn to the country.
