SHAH ALAM, Aug 26 - Ean Yong Hian Wah today slammed the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for not doing their homework before making unsubstantiated graft claims at the Teoh Beng Hock inquest today
During a press conference today, Ean Yong gave reporters folders containing documents as well as before and after pictures of small projects carried out at his constituency which he claims proved the allegations raised by the MACC were unfounded.
The Selangor executive councillor said the documents and pictures are kept at the District Office.
The Selangor DAP chairman pointed out the MACC had raided the District Office and had seized all documents related to how he spent his state allocation for small projects at his Sri Kembangan Constituency.
According to him, the MACC had tendered in the coroner's court today four claims and quotation documents which were unsigned and not stamped, purportedly obtained from Teoh’s computer.
“I have never seen these documents before and they may have been drafts.”
Ean Yong said MACC senior enforcement officer Mohd Anuar Ismail had earlier testified that their investigations revealed the work was never carried out by the contractors involved.
The two claims are from Syarikat Aris and Fizami Construction while the quotations are from MKMN Enterprise and MA Bina Melor Enterprise.
“My lawyer Salim Basir had showed the same pictures, quotation and actual claims to Mohd Anuar during the inquest and he had admitted that he had never set eyes on the documents before.”
According to Ean Yong, upon being shown the evidence Mohd Anuar had to agree and admit to the coroner that the projects were actually completed.
“I want to ask MACC if they are really carrying out a serious, fair and professional investigation,” he said.
“Mohd Anuar, as the investigating officer, should have checked all the documents and pictures before making false allegations in the inquest.”
“This clearly shows that the MACC has a political agenda and are not only refusing to take responsibility for Teoh’s death but are attempting to tarnish the image of the DAP and Pakatan Rakyat.”
