Media Statement by Lau Weng San in Petaling Jaya on Saturday, 21st February 2009:

MACC should also explain on corruption cases involving BN leaders

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan said that there is strong evidence to show that Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim misused his powers over the maintenance of his personal car and the distribution of 46 cows for slaughter in his Bandar Tun Razak parliamentary constituency.

I urge Ahmad Said Hamdan to also explain and update the public on all corruption cases lodged with ACA and MACC against Barisan Nasional leaders for the past ten years by DAP members and members of Pakatan Rakyat component parties, in order to prove that he is working above partisan politics, neutrally without selective prosecution.

The first question in my mind when Ahmad Said Hamdan made this statement is: why does MACC choose to submit their complete investigation paper now to A-G chamber for further action to prosecute Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim?

Why does MACC and its predecessor, ACA update on us all the corruption reports lodged with them for the past ten years against BN leaders?

The corruption charges against Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim (car + cows) involve a total sum of money of no less than RM1 million happening in less than a year. I am totally surprised that MACC can complete the investigation against Pakatan Rakyat leader in lightning speed looking the facts that MACC has been failing to regularly update the general public on corruption cases lodged against BN leaders for the past ten years, involving even larger amount of money?

Is there any element of selective prosecutions? We need an answer from Ahmad Said Hamdan.
