MACC MAY RE-OPEN LINGAM TAPE ISSUE


The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) which has been currently been strongly criticised may re-open the case of Lingam Video Tape episode and would contact the Attorney-General Chambers to seek their final permission.

Yesterday, Minter in the Prime Ministers Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz had commented in Parliament that the matter is closed since a key witness was unable to be traced but Datuk Seri Nazri or MACC have not disclosed who the person is.

With this disclosure, the public have criticised the BN government for not taking public woes since it involves BN top leaders and their cronies. Among the top BN leader involved is Tun (then Datuk Seri) Dr Mahathir Mohamad and one of their crony, Tan Sri Vincent Tan.

The time has come for these irresponsible people together with others concerned to be punished since fixing the judges appointment had created great mistrust on the judiciary.

Will MACC re-open the matter and punish those concern as soon as possible without taking into account any fear or favour on these individuals?
