KOTA KINABALU 14/10/2012: The recent disclosure by Minister in the Prime Minister Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz that Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) and Hong Kong Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) have found no proof of graft against Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman has vindicated the Sabah BN chief of money laundering and corruption allegations which the opposition has been claiming all this while.
Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) secretary-general Datuk Henrynus Amin said the outcome by both investigative bodies also proved the opposition claims wrong and brought to light that they were the mastermind of this conspiracy.
“Those with vested interest had gone to great lengths in order to achieve their objective, which is to weaken the BN government as a means to get to Putrajaya,” he said.
Henrynus added that it should be made known that the original complaint against Musa alleging corrupt practices was lodged by a Malaysian opposition politician to the ICAC which was obliged by law to investigate the complaint.
He said upon completion of a thorough investigation, the ICAC has confirmed that on the basis of their investigations, no further action of the complaint would be pursued.
Henrynus also said the Hong Kong ICAC was a highly respected investigative body in the world, guided by the highest standards of practices, rules and procedures.
He added that the MACC was an independent body that investigated and persecuted without fear or favour.
“Musa has already openly said that he has given his full cooperation to the relevant authorities.
“These wild allegations have been concocted and recycled over and over again by the opposition and people with vested interest in an attempt to destabilise the present state government helmed by Musa,” he said.
And, Henrynus also said in the endeavour to topple a leader, these recycled allegations by the opposition had set off a wild goose chase and in the course, wasted the time and effort of the relevant authorities of the countries concerned.
He said hat was even more unfortunate was that certain NGOs have fallen prey and have allowed themselves to become vehicles to fulfil this malicious agenda.
“In this age of high-speed internet technology, anyone can make all kinds of allegations, post charts, paste so-called genuine documents and doctor pictures on news portals and blogs.
“A person who is even slightly techno savvy would be able to embellish, distort or give any story that “little oomph” it needed to engage your garden variety reader’s attention.
“And, just because a portal or blog quotes so-called figures of authority, post pictures and flowcharts to demonstrate the point of their story, it did not make them evidence, fact or truthful.
“My advice to avid blog and news portal readers is take everthing you read with a pinch of salt. And, my advice to the opposition, in your zeal to wrestle the government is, stop your dirty tactics. Your road to Putrajaya should not be paved with malice, lies and deceit,” Henrynus pointed out.
