MACC chief: I will not bow down to ‘despicable’ allegations
PETALING JAYA: Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Dzukifli Ahmad has said he will not give in to pressure from personal attacks and will continue his duties without fear or favour.
Describing the recent attacks against him as dirty and despicable, Dzulkifli said the allegations were aimed at tarnishing his reputation and discrediting the MACC’s efforts in combating corruption.
“We will not bow down to pressure and we will continue to carry out our duties and responsibilities to ensure that the country is rid of those who are involved in corruption and power abuse,” he told TV3 during an interview
“I’m confident that these attacks were made following the MACC’s ‘aggressive’ actions against those involved in corruption and power abuse.” Dzulkifli said he had contacted Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohamad Fuzi Harun over the matter and the police would take further action.
Earlier, Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak advised Dzulkifli to remain steadfast and not succumb to underhanded tactics aimed at undermining him.
The MACC has been in the news lately over several high-profile arrests including that of three Sabah political leaders in connection with the alleged misappropriation of RM1.5 billion in funds allocated for rural projects in the state.
It had also hauled up Hamid Apdal, the younger brother of Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) president Shafie Apdal, over the alleged misappropriation of funds.
Some 350 projects under the rural and regional development ministry are reportedly being scrutinised by the MACC over allegations of embezzlement of RM1.5 billion in federal funds.
These projects were planned to be carried out between 2009 and 2015 in Kota Kinabalu, Kudat, Kota Belud, Ranau, Beaufort, Keningau, Lahad Datu, Tawau and Sandakan.
The RM1.5 billion is said to be part of RM7.5 billion allocated for water, electricity and road infrastructure development projects.
Every now and then I find myself hating the Malays and Islam. Our leaders today are a bunch of arrogant bastard and bitch who does not have the slightest shame nor do they behave like human beings.
Today Malaysia is run by heartless Muslim who think they can do wrong anytime any day.
People in high position should show some dignity to the post they hold. Instead these bastards misused their post to do wrong.
Like most Malaysians I am very, very angry that Dzulifli has not shown the slightest remorse to his misbehavior. Dzulifli should have apologize to his family, his mistress's family and the public. Instead of shifting the blame that certain people are out to discredit MACC effort in combating corruption.
No-one is out for MACC blood in fact we Malaysians are happy even though Ikan Bilis are being caught and the money, jewellery, houses etc confiscated are been used to cover Najib and Rosmah robbery.
MACC should carry on their good work instead Dzulifli SHOULD RESIGN since HE IS THE ONE WHO CREATED THE PROBLEM. Surely Dzulifli is NOT THE ONLY ONE CAPABLE OF CATCHING IKAN BILIS.
THERE SEEM TO BE A NORM THAT ANYONE WHO ARE WITH UMNO ARE UNTOUCHABLE AFTER COMMITTING A CRIME.
People should not jump the gun that those behind the investigation of Dzulifli affair are the opposition or those from Sabah.
Instead one should consider the case that Najib and Rosmah have asked Dzulifli to close not so long ago.
A person who can command RM100 million a month without paying GST and Income Tax is a huge loss to one's pocket and I am not talking about his dignity and ego which went down the drain when the Agong rejected his extension to continue as the number 1 Protection Racket Chief.
