MACC chief gets death threat linked to Teoh’s death
[Ahmad Said is now under tight protection due to the death threat. — Bernama pic] KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 5 — Top anti-graft buster Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan was threatened with being shot to death in a letter received on July 24 from unknown persons seeking revenge for the mysterious death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said yesterday.
News of the threat came in tandem with strong sentiment among top brass in MACC that the Najib administration is not supportive enough of the agency, with some displeased that the government acceded to a royal commission to investigate its methods.
There is also a growing view that MACC deputy chief commissioner Datuk Abu Kassim Mohamed is more qualified to lead the national anti-graft body than Ahmad Said, who is now under tight protection due to the death threat.
My fiend Hj Hanipah would love to read that news. Every time we discuss any matters that involve the present government, it will frustrate and disappoint Hj Hanapiah. Any wrong doing would either not look into, or not found guilty. Either the police or MACC would say not enough evident or the court will find excuses to let it go.
Hj Hanapiah will then say “ puak puak ni mau bagi penembak saja”.
I’m sure many would agree. “Geram” that’s the best solution.
