MACC Malaysian Anti-Corruption Agency is dead

The MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Agency) is dead. First is its feet dragging and reluctance to investigate reports of corruptions of Barisan Nasional and Government agencies. The reporters who were given envelopes containing RM300 had given the name (from the name tag) of the Ministry of Information staff who gave them the envelopes. And yet MACC refused to investigate on the excuse that the reporters could not identify the staff who gave them the envelope.

However, the MACC were super efficient in investigating the Selangor Menteri Besar after reports about his personal car and the donation of cows and its Chief Ahmad Said made a statement that they have strong proof of corruption thereby implying guilt even before it has gone to the court. The MACC were also super efficient in calling for investigation of the Perak Speaker for abuse of power while not investigating the Perak Secretary for acting beyond his power. Now the MACC is even threatening to question the lawyers for the Perak Speaker which smack of intimidation of lawyers acting on behalf of their clients.

All this goes to show that MACC is dead as an independent institution. RIP.

Of course this is to be expected of the Barisan government. It's just them acting desperately during desperate times. The whole UMNO bunch of bandits are corrupt to the core - so what should you expect from an UMNO appointed "anti" corruption commission?
