FT Minister's "conflict of interest" in Rimba Kiara: MACC's probe "reopened, in final stages"


Puchong, 20 May: I, too, would like to commend Hannah Yeoh for choosing her constituents and Rimba Kiara over a "friend" like Khalid Samad. She shouldn't have waited so long or given so much rope for Khalid to hang himself but, as they say, better late than never. And better Khalid than the park the "pushy" people of TTDI are trying to save. 
But the way she handled our anti-graft people from the MACC leaves much to be desired. One gets a whiff right away of that distrust of civil servants that Daim Zainuddin has been talking about. Maybe Hannah Yeoh had a bad experience with the MACC when she was in the Opposition but, come on, this is Malaysia Baharu, is it not? And she's not in the Opposition anymore and may stop acting like one, like asking the MACC to close shop if she and friends don't get what they want.
We all want the park to be preserved but it is important that the MACC does not do its job just because of political pressure and politicians' tantrums. 

Probe was never closed, says MACC No 2

In any case, in view of the latest developments, maybe Khalid Samad, the FT Minister, should resign from Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan to facilitate the probe ...
