TTF: The heat is on Azmin Ali.
The MACC just doesn’t arrest anyone unless it discovers compelling evidence that warrants arrest. In the case of the six individuals (see news item below), the anti-graft agency must have discovered something amiss in relation to Azmin’s decision to allow LBCN Development Sdn Bhd and Mujur Zaman Sdn Bhd to sell some parcels of disputed land to a third party for RM1.18 billion.
Why, did the MACC follow the money and discover that these individuals received kickbacks? Are we looking at something similar to what’s going on in Penang in relation to the Penang Undersea Tunnel Scandal? Is Azmin going to play it ‘Tokong style’ by pretending that he has nothing to do with these individuals or has no vested interest in LBCN and Mujur Zaman?
Yes, it’s interesting to see how the drama unfolds. But regardless the direction it takes, the Selangor Menteri Besar still owes an explanation to Ijok settlers who were only awarded RM421 million in compensation while LBCN and Mujur Zaman took home RM757 million for no reason. He needs to explain to the settlers why they were played out. He needs to justify the reason he kept the RM1.18 billion deal a secret from them all this while.
Seriously, did Azmin enter a secret deal with a very powerful lawyer right up ‘there’?
MELAKA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today arrested six individuals, including two with “Datuk” title, to facilitate its probe into the sale of 880 hectares of land valued at RM1.18 billion in Ijok to several private developing companies in 2016.
MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad said the six individuals, aged between 34 and 84, were picked up at separate locations in Petaling Jaya and Putrajaya.
Two of them were father and son, he told reporters after the Friends of Anti-Corruption Revolution Movement programme here today.
Dzulkifli said the MACC had also seized several important documents from three of the companies to facilitate the investigation.
“We are in the midst of tracking down another company director with “Datuk” title, who is now believed to be abroad, and another man, to assist further investigation into the case,” he added.
