Monitoring Idris Jala 12 Months To Deliver NKRA
Happen to read a report at Free Malaysia Today and get a shock at how genius the new MACC chief can be.
Good leaders with integrity and fairness will know how to set priority to handle the many criminal cases. The ex-DG had proudly claimed that MACC will investigate corruption cases even if it is only one ringgit, and, I would agree with him in order to rid of corruptions in this country. But if there are corruption cases involving hundreds of million ringgit and high profile government officials, these cases must be more important than the few ringgit corruption cases. If top corrupt leaders are arrested and charged it will send a very good signal to the lower ranking officers not to be corrupted.
There is no need to provide reasons and excuses for ones failure to handle high-profile cases when you have set the wrong priority and are subservience to your political master. Having not enough officers to go after high-profile cases but sufficient officers to go after suspected two thousand ringgit corruption, suspected MB's cow and car, going through files after files of the Selangor state government office, hassling elected rep, filing police reports against Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand, speak volume of your seriousness of fighting corruptions.
If MACC’s newly anointed director-general Datuk Abu Kassim Mohamed is serious in fighting corruptions he should talk less and set his priority to get all those involved in the PKFZ, fighter jet engines, Bala's revelations, ministers that are living beyond their means, previous MBs and political leaders owning huge properties, illegal transmission of money overseas and I guess there are more files of corrupted top leaders lock up somewhere. Use whatever is available to you and get cracking into these high-profile cases, stop whining, stop giving idiotic reasoning and excuses for your own failure.
One comment from FreeMalaysiaToday reader for director-general Datuk Abu Kassim Mohamed to consider to make MACC more effective:
January 6th, 2010 at 10:28 am
To be effective, the MACC must be TOTALLY independant to investigate and to prosecute. Why depend on AG’s office. This itself brings its credibility into question. It must report to Parliament. The Advisory Board members must also be seen to be neutral and competent. There is no other way.
" MACC’s newly anointed director-general Datuk Abu Kassim Mohamed:
Several hundred corruption and high profile cases have taken a back seat as MACC focuses on a slew of upcoming ones as 2010 begins....In justifying MACC’s delay in dealing with several public interest cases, he said it was not fair to put the entire blame on MACC.....“We have only 31 prosecutors seconded to us from the attorney-general’s office to assist MACC with prosecution. Our job is to carry out investigations and the prosecution is left to the A-Gs office,” he told viewers."
