Wee Choo Keong given 48 hours to carry out his threat to lodge ACA report against me for AP corruption or he would have proved himself to be a political joker who does not deserve to be taken seriously in future

Media Statement
by Lim Kit Siang  

(Parliament, Monday):Malaysian Democratic Party secretary-general Wee Choo Keong had issued a 48-hour ultimatum that he would lodge a report with the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA)  against me for Approved Permits (AP) corruption and I had told him to do his worst.

Wee’s 48-hour ultimatum had expired by more than 48 hours – to be exact, by some  72 hours - and he has still to lodge his ACA report against me for AP corruption.


I am giving Wee a 48-hour ultimatum to carry out his threat to lodge the ACA report or he would have proved himself to be a political joker who does not deserve to be taken seriously in future.

My position on the accountability and transparency of MPs on APs is clear. I had called on the government to make public all the individual APs which had been  issued, averaging about  a thousand a year, including  to Ministers, Deputy Ministers and Members of Parliament.  I have things to say about MPs and APs, which I am withholding until Wee has lodged his ACA report.   It is food for thought, nonetheless,   why no one seems interested about APs and other Members of Parliament, whether Barisan Nasional or other opposition parties.

However, we should not tolerate the culture of political thuggery, with politicians casting aspersions on the character of others by issuing ultimatums and threatening to lodge ACA reports  when they have completely no basis or cause whatsoever. This is why I have decided to expose Wee’s political chicanery and mischief when he issued the 48-hour ultimatum to me by challenging him to carry out his threat.

I am looking forward to the ACA visit for two reasons:

Firstly, on what basis ACA is acting on Wee’s ACA report; and

Secondly, I would like to know what has happened to the various ACA reports that I had lodged in the past, in particular in connection with the former MCA President Tun Dr. Ling Liong Sik and his son, Ling Hee Leong, as well as the outcome of ACA investigations into various scandals whether APs, UMNO money politics or the  multi-million ringgit Osu Sukam gambling debts.
