Alleged Bali affair: ‘Dzulkifli must say if it’s him’

 | October 24, 2017

DAP's Gobind Singh Deo says MACC chief must put to rest speculation over the matter, and that silence is not an option.

Gobind-Singh-DzulkifliPETALING JAYA: Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo wants Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief Dzulkifli Ahmad to clear the air over whether he was caught on video together with a married woman in Bali.

Adding that silence was not an option, Gobind said Dzulkifli must put to rest speculation over the identity of the man in the clips for the good of his office.

In a statement today, he said individuals holding such positions, whether in the MACC, police force or other investigative agencies, must realise that the image of their agencies must never be compromised.

“This is to ensure public confidence in that agency.

“So where allegations are made against any officer who holds office in that agency, silence is not an option. These officers must respond.

“If it is not him, then I urge him to say so openly.”

The video clips, taken from CCTV footage, show a man said to be Dzulkifli holding hands with the woman while exiting a hotel in Bali.

Another recording shows the couple together in a restaurant.

Another video clip shows flight tickets, hotel registration papers and other footages of the couple and luggage being moved out of a hotel.

The clips, which have gone viral, were said to have been taken in July.

Dzulkifli had hit out at the alleged scandal, saying it was “dirty and disgusting attacks” by people whom he did not identify.

The woman and her husband reportedly divorced last month.

On Oct 22, Gobind had called on Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun to explain whether the police had verified the truth of the video clips.

Speaking today, he said Parliament had created the MACC with the express intention that it would promote integrity and accountability in both public and private sector administration.

“This necessarily demands that its own officers, especially its chief, must lead by example.”
