Sultan Nazrin of Perak’s warning last Thursday to Malaysians not to be in denial and not to perform “mental acrobatics to deny the existence of the corruption ‘elephant’ that is vividly happen in front of our eyes” is most apt and timely.

Azam Baki should resign as MACC Chief Commissioner as he has been caught red-handed telling two conflicitng stories about MACC investigations into the RM9 billion LCS scandal

(Versi BM)

Azam Baki should resign as Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief Commissioner as he has been caught red-handed telling two conflicting stories about MACC investigations into the RM9 billion littoral combatant ships (LCS) scandal.

On August 11, 2022 the MACC issued a statement saying that it had completed its investigation papers on individuals linked to the LCS scandal, that the investigation papers had been handed to the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) and the MACC had made recommendations on what charges to file against these individuals and waiting further instructions after the AGC had studied the papers.

PSC on Agencies under PM’s Department must prove its worth by summoning the MACC Chief, Azam Baki to testify why he is playing the “blind, deaf and mute” game on the RM9 billion LCS scandal

(Versi BM)

Two days ago on Friday, I proposed that the Parliament Select Committee on Agencies under the Prime Minister’s Department meet urgently and summon the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief Commissioner, Azam Baki to explain why the MACC had failed to take action against anyone for the RM9 billion littoral combatants ships (LCS) scandal although he had the benefit of two reports on the LCS scandal – the Special Investigation Committee on Public Governance, Procurement and Finance the LCS (JKUSTUPKK) headed by then auditor-general Ambrin Buang and the report of the forensic audit of the LCS procurement (2011-2014) carried out by Alliance IFA (M) Sdn. Bhd. at the behest of Boustead Heavy Industries Corp Bhd (BHIC) – which contained a myriad of possible charges on corruption, abuse of power, breach of trust, malpractices and cheating.

So far, Azam had given the lame excuse that the MACC needs more time for its investigation into the troubled RM9 billion LCS project as a few of the witnesses the MACC wants to summon are overseas. Read the rest of this entry »

Empty words of “no more delays in LCS project” are not good enough – what are the new milestones for the delivery of the six LCS, will it be during the 13th Malaysia Plan 2026-2030 when the first Letter of Intent (LOI) was issued as far back as the 9th Malaysia Plan?

(Versi BM)
Empty words of “no more delays in the littoral combatant ships (LCS) project” are not good enough.

Agree with Muhyiddin there is no need to debate Hadi’s “root of corruption” remarks as it is as clear as day that they are unMalaysian, irrational, extremist, without any theoretical, theological or factual basis

I agree with Perikatan Nasional Chief Muhyddin Yassin that there is no need to debate the “root cause of corruption” remarks of the PAS President, Abdul Hadi Awang, as it is as clear as day that the remarks are unMalaysian, irrational, extremist, without any theoretical, theological or factual basis.

Islam is one of the great religions of the world and teaches human being to be good, but Hadi has no problem in condoning corruption and working with Najib Razak, one of the masterminds of the monstrous mega 1MDB financial scandal. Read the rest of this entry »
