KUCHING: Sarawak United People’s Party leaders were urged today to get the state Cabinet to work closely with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission if they want to clear the Sarawak Yang Dipertua Negeri, Taib Mahmud, from allegations of corrupt practices.
Sarawak Pakatan Harapan chairman Chong Chieng Jen said that as he is a member of the opposition in Sarawak, he had no access to the minutes of meetings of the state Cabinet in past decades.
He told reporters that Cabinet documents, which are classified as official secrets, should have records of the state government having approved projects to companies related to Taib.
He added that even though federal minister Liew Vui Keong had recently said that there was no new evidence in respect of allegations against Taib, the MACC had not made any stand on this matter.
SUPP had recently urged Chong to clear Taib’s name given what Liew recently said.
