Selangor Umno Youth lodges report

(NST) SHAH ALAM: State Umno Youth claimed that the allegations posted on an anonymous blog could help authorities solve Teoh Beng Hock's death.


The movement yesterday lodged a report at the state Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office on the blog postings that allege Selangor executive councillors had misappropriated funds.

State Umno Youth chief Suhaimi Mohd Ghazali, who was accompanied by 15 members, said the report was to urge the MACC to resume investigating allegations of graft involving assemblymen and state executive councillors.

Suhaimi said MACC's investigations on corruption and Wangsa Maju member of parliament Wee Choo Keong's blog entry that a state executive councillor was linked to the underworld, should not be stopped despite the controversy surrounding Teoh's death.

"We hope the MACC would continue their investigation as we want to know who is linked to the underworld.

"The people would want to know if there is any corruption involved. If there is, it has to be exposed," Suhaimi said outside Plaza Masalam here, yesterday.

Suhaimi also handed documents to the MACC, including copies of the blog posts.

Apart from Ean Yong, the other assemblymen being investigated are Teresa Kok (DAP-Kinrara), Elizabeth Wong (PKR-Bukit Lanjan), Hannah Yeoh (DAP-Subang Jaya), Dr Cheah Wing Wah (DAP-Damansara Utama), Edward Lee (DAP-Bukit Gasing) and Lau Weng San (DAP-Kampung Tunku).

State MACC director Jaafar Mahad confirmed receiving the report but declined comment.

He had earlier said that investigations on the case were ongoing though they had slowed down due to police investigations into Teoh's death.
