Was the MACC chief directing his “Just You Wait” warning to MO1, and if not, what credibility is there that the MACC will break jinx of just going after ikan bilis while ikan yus continue to go scotfree, unlike “tigers” in China and “crocodiles” in Indonesia who are brought to justice and jailed?
Was the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief Commissioner, Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad, directing his “Just You Wait” warning to MO1, and if not, what credibility is there that the MACC will break the jinx of just going after ikan bilis while ikan yus continue to go scotfree, unlike the “tigers” in China and “crocodiles” in Indonesia who are being caught, brought to justice and jailed?
Dzulkifli should know that Malaysians have had enough of excuses why “grand corruption” involving top political leaders continue to be a protected “species” and no amount of belly-aching about inadequate budget or staffing is acceptable as an excuse for MACC’s failure to break the back of the problem of grand corruption in Malaysia – as evident by another drop in Malaysia’s ranking and score in the Transparency International (TI)’s Corruption Perception Index (CPI) 2016!
For 2016, Parliament allocated a budget of RM250 million for the MACC, which is more than six times the budget allocated to its predecessor, Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) for the year 2000.
Can Dzulkifli produce a report to demonstrate that the MACC today is six times more effective than ACA in 2000 in fighting corruption, in arresting and jailing the corrupt especially in terms of netting ikan yus and ikan bilis by bringing them to justice, whether “grand corruption” or “petty corruption”?
Malaysia’s ranking in the TI CPI 2001 was No. 36 out of 91 countries and the score was 50 out of 100, but in the 2016 TI CPI, Malaysia was fallen to No. 55 out of 176 countries with a below mid-point score of 49 out of 100.
Is this the six times’ improvement in performance and KPI of the MACC as compared to the ACA in year 2000?
Dare Dzulkifli state that his “Just You Wait” warning over television live yesterday should be taken seriously taken by all the Cabinet Ministers and if not, what is the purpose and target audience of his threat?
The MACC, which had taken over from ACA, had the “black marks” and ignominy of causing the death of DAP activist Teoh Beng Hock on 16th July 2009 and senior customs officer Ahmad Sarbani Mohamad on April 6, 2010 and the families of Beng Hock and Ahmad Sarbani are still waiting for justice to be done by MACC in both cases.
Can Dzulkifli give iron-clad assurance that MACC under him will not be a tool for political persecution or be responsible for criminal negligence as in the innocent and unjustified deaths of Beng Hock and Sarbani?
