Might as well dissolve MACC after Taib snub

The Malaysian Insider

Naughty seems to be the byword in Sarawak.

The long-serving state chief minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud used that word today to describe the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) for its investigations into alleged graft in timber land awards.

“They don’t deserve my cooperation because they have been naughty… and they have not been honest,” he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur.

The MACC probe was launched after an environmental activist group released a video documentary alleging the state Barisan Nasional chief to have received millions of ringgit in kickbacks over land deals that have denuded the Borneo state.

In the video, the Sarawak people were also called naughty for occupying state land. But for Taib, the MACC is the naughty one now.

“Let them victimise me… I am not scared,” said Taib, expressing no fear over the investigations.

What is the MACC to do now?

All eyes are on the MACC, again. After all, two people have died in the course of their investigations since they were set up in 2009.

WIll it back down and keep quiet after this brazen response from Taib? Won’t this kind of snub embolden others to thumb their nose at the MACC and refuse to cooperate too?

If the MACC doesn’t do anything about this response from Taib, it might as well close shop. It is already working on a trust deficit basis and this snub from Taib has just shown how powerless the¬†commission can be when it comes head-to-head with the powerful.



  1. I have a propsal to eradicate corruption which im absolutely sure will work…APPOINT TAIB TO TAKE THE HELM AT MACC and Musa Aman his deputy!!!

  2. MACC should stop play acting and issue a warrant of arrest to the thief minister if he refuses to come to MACC office . Search the houses of all his children including overseas.

  4. Oh wow, Taib is above everything in this world, He isJEzUz, he can denies everything and rejects whatever want to. Absolutely he is above Najib and above of Malaysian Legislation. Taib think he is as powerfull as God. Aisen Georo Puyi has changed! transform to be a better and happy person after re-educated. But I do not think Taib needs some basic human right education, he will live for another 1000 years.
