Jealousy behind spate of ‘harassments’ on Selangor entities, says Azmin

 | August 26, 2017

The Selangor MB says state entities involved in the MACC probe have nothing to hide.

sprm-raidPETALING JAYA: Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali today said there was “harassment and intimidation” against the state, following raids by anti-graft officers on several state entities last week.

Azmin said some quarters were “jealous” of Selangor’s successes, including the state government’s ability to maintain political unity.

“A lot of people are jealous of Selangor’s success. Not only did we manage to ensure unity and harmony in the state government, but now we have also obtained a new friend in Pakatan Harapan.

“Many are also jealous of our success in managing our economy and finances, in a proper and transparent way,” he told reporters at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport today.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission recently raided Universiti Selangor (Unisel) and Menteri Besar Incorporated (MBI), over allegations that RM16 million was misappropriated when MBI made a payment to a private company, Jana Niaga.

MACC had seized documents after raids were carried out at the Unisel offices in Shah Alam and Bestari Jaya, the private company’s office at Desa Pandan, Kuala Lumpur, and Bestari Jaya, and also the MBI office at the state administrative building in Shah Alam.

Jana Niaga was said to have carried out maintenance works at the Unisel campus in Bestari Jaya, Kuala Selangor.

Azmin said he hoped MACC would carry out its probe profesionally, adding that both firms would fully cooperate with the investigation.

“Investigate this matter openly, transparently, and professionally. We have nothing to hide,” he said.
