Hishammuddin calls for probe against Dr M and family’s wealth

Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein (pictured) said the MACC should investigate Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his family over their riches accumulated over the 22 years while he was prime minister. — Bernama picTun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his family should be investigated over their riches accumulated over the 22 years while he was prime minister, Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said today.

Hishammuddin who is also defence minister said the retired leader-turned-government critic had not been an angel while in power, Malay daily Utusan Malaysia reported on its website.

“Don’t let us just dance to their rhythm. Tun Mahathir should also be investigated [on his and his family’s wealth],” he was quoted telling reporters after officiating at the Kangar Umno delegates conference in the Perlis capital earlier.

Hishammuddin was also reported saying it was improper to investigate claims made against a person while the one who made the allegation was spared.

The report did not state the context in which Hishammuddin was making his comment, but he could have been responding to Dr Mahathir’s insinuation last week over the purportedly dubious RM230 million held by another Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in his bank account over 20 years ago.

According to Dr Mahathir who was prime minister from 1981 to 2003, Ahmad Zahid had made the asset declaration to him in 1996.

Ahmad Zahid who is currently deputy prime minister and home minister has denied having assets worth that much but expressed his willingness to be investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

The MACC in turn has said that no report has been filed against Ahmad Zahid.

  2. Investors are flocking to Malaysia? A bit of an overkill if you’d asked me. Let’s just say you have had a few investors interested to go to KL to “look-see”. A 5% GDP growth is meaningless if there is-a) increasing gap between the haves and the have-nots, b) significant unemployment c) if the economy is largely driven by government spending d) unsustainable property boom. Soon, the time will come when the spending has to come to a grinding halt. Where will growth come from then?

  3. All the Umno Baru crooks and thieves have only 7 to 8 months to know who will go to jail. Najib, Zahid , Nazri and Hishamuddin are definitely on the list.
