Lim Sian See
Uncle Lim Kti Siang trying to play the victim again saying he will soon be arrested by MACC for corruption over an alleged RM1 billion bribe.
Unfortunately, Kit Siang does not seem to understand the law. If there is indeed money from Mahathir then there is no corruption and can only be classified as a political donation from Mahathir to Kit Siang.
And since Pakatan does not want a law on political donations, there are no laws broken.
Mahathir and his family are rich and can easily afford the RM1 billion.
It is only corruption if the money was found to be from public coffers or from public listed companies in return for illegal favours.
MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Azam Baki said this in response to a statement by DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang asking the agency to investigate claims over the RM 1 billion bribe he allegedly received from Tun Mahathir Mohamad.
“Parliament has not passed any legislation that provides a guideline for political parties or politicians on political funding.
“The MACC Act 2009 does not cover offences related to money politics.
Therefore, Kit Siang should save his drama. Why do you need to compete with Syed Saddiq to be who is the bigger drama queen?
