I don’t think there is any anti corruption agency in the world that is free, willing and transparent, not beholden, in investigating a Chief Minister of a state. I am sure if there is a similar corruption report against the PM or a minister or any MP, the MACC too would rush in to investigate with no fear or favour. And for the MACC to investigate the Chief Minister of Penang, and no other ministers or politicians, it only speaks well of Malaysia as a corruption free country. In the whole of Malaysia, only one Chief Minister is being investigated, and for supposedly buying a property below market price. The rest of the politicians, ministers, PM etc etc are simply incorruptible as the MACC has no reason to investigate any one of them for corruption. They are all clean.
And the MACC is so professional and meticulous in this investigation against the Chief Minister. Both the Chief Minister and his wife had been interviewed several times by the MACC. And in total 65 witnesses had been called up to assist in the investigation. This is serious business and no stone is left unturned. Anyone, any minister or politician that is corrupt would not get away with such thorough and professional work of the MACC.
These two facts, a highly professional anti corruption agency that would investigate anyone, regardless of position and power, speaks very well of the MACC and Malaysia. And the way the MACC went about its duties also specks very well of the MACC. And one more, since in the whole of Malaysia, only one politician is suspected of corruption while the rest are clean, how not to conclude that Malaysia is a corruption free country?
