Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Deputy Commissioner Datuk Abu Kassim Mohammed told reporters that the MACC has directed its state directors to brief elected representatives on how to manage allocation and the right procedure to prevent abuse and misuse.
He said that some of the elected representatives may not know that doing things in a certain way is wrong.
Abu Kassim also said that the anti-graft body would then point out to the government the existing loopholes and recommend measures to “close the door” to possibilities of abuse and misuse of allocation.
I wish to say that to date, the MACC has not conducted any briefing with Selangor State Pakatan Rakyat State Assemblypersons (ADUNs) or Members of Parliament.
We are not asked or informed about any briefing conducted by MACC on the subject matter.
However, the state government has already conducted an audit on the allocation and will be implementing some new guidelines at the level of the land offices progressively.
Perhaps Abu Kassim should do a counter check with his officers on the ground whether the decisions made at the highest level of the MACC do filter down to the ground or not.
