MARA scandal - Horses’ Mouths – 6 November 2015

Harakahdaily - TS | .


PAS and Umno fought in more than 70 seats. Only 20 won by PAS and now 6 are with Amanah. If it is true that Umno and PAS want to forge political cooperation, how many of the 50 seats won by Umno will be given to PAS? For sure, PAS will not let go any of its seats. So, stop slandering that PAS wants to be with Umno.

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, PAS deputy president, stressing that there is no way for the party to work with Umno



1MDB debate

(We) respect the decision of Dewan Rakyat speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia that Pua shall not debate with Arul Kanda. Rafizi will be replacing Pua.

Anthony Loke, DAP’s Seremban MP, announcing awkwardly that PKR lawmaker Rafizi Ramli will be replacing Public Accounts Committee (PAC) member Tony Pua to take on 1MDB boss Arul Kanda Kandasamy in a live debate on the1MDB fiasco


YB Tony Pua has now confirmed he will not resign from the PAC and that he will no longer debate me. He has chosen to hide behind his PAC membership, to run away from a showdown he aggressively harassed me to accept, which I agreed to with zero conditions. I note that YB Tony Pua’s coalition has now offered YB Rafizi Ramli as replacement debater. The obvious question is why doesn’t YB Rafizi Ramli replace YB Tony Pua in the PAC, so that YB Tony Pua can debate me? It was specifically YB Tony Pua who challenged me. He made it personal, and used mocking words like “I will not punch him”, “my allegations”, “embarrassing me”, etc.

Plot to topple government

The government has detected certain activities to topple the administration without going through the democratic process. However, evidences of these activities can't be revealed due to security reasons and police are still collecting detailed information on this matter.

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Deputy Prime Minister, confirming that there have been activities to topple the government through undemocratic means but will not reveal details due to security reasons following a question from Temerloh MP Nasrudin Hassan




While SRC holds the MACC in high regard, we are concerned about the recent wave of leakages or possible sale of classified information to members of the media and irresponsible, self-interested politicians.  This appears to be part of a deliberate and concentrated campaign to undermine state-linked companies and, by extension, the Government.  We recognise that, as in any organisation, people are likely to have strong personal views or political inclinations.  However, these must not be allowed to affect their impartiality in performing official duties.

SRC International Media Unit, insisting would only cooperate with Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) after Attorney General finishes an independent investigation to identify those responsible for the leakages or possible sale of classified information


Most importantly, MACC’s investigations cannot be called off on the basis of waiting for another investigation into reports of leaked information. It’s up to SRC International if they want to lodge a police report to investigate the said leaks. MACC has only been acting within the law and does not want any interferences that prolongs or jeopardises its investigation.

Azam Baki, MACC investigations director, insisting that claims of “leaked information” had nothing to do with their probe into the Finance Ministry’s subsidiary and warned against attempts to stall investigations into its alleged misuse of funds



MARA scandal

For the record, Mara is taking the matter very seriously and internal measures have been taken, including an internal audit. Mara is cooperating fully with MACC and some officers have been called up to assist in investigation. We leave the next steps to MACC.

Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Rural and Regional Development Minister, announcing that the contract of Mara Incorporated Sdn Bhd (Mara Inc) chief executive officer (CEO) Abd Halim A Rahim will not be renewed following the overseas property purchase scandal
