The Electric New Paper, Singapore – The Electric New Paper News

TWO Perak Pakatan Rakyat state assemblymen today filed a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) claiming that they were offered millions to quit their parties and become Independents or join Barisan Nasional (BN).

Democratic Action Party’s (DAP’s) Keshvinder Singh and Pakatan Keadilan Rakyat’s (PKR’s) Abdul Yunus Jamsari lodged their reporters at the MACC office in Ipoh, reported Bernama news agency.

Mr Keshvinder told reporters that he had received various offers from numerous agents claiming to represent Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

And one of them was was a local freelance journalist with the Chinese media, he alleged.

The DAP leader, who represents Malim Nawar district in Perak, claimed that he was offered RM20 million ($8m) to quit and declare himself as an Independent as well as express support for BN.

The lawyer-turned-politician also said he had been offered the post of Perak Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) chief if he joined the BN component party as well as being appointed a state executive councillor, among other offers.

He said: ‘I urge Najib to come forward and explain the matter because this shows that the federal government is corrupt and desperate.’

The other politician, Mr Abdul Yunus, claimed he was offered cash between RM3 million and RM8 million.

The Kuala Kurau district assemblyman said he was offered logging concessions if he quit his party.

That offer, he claimed, was made by several agents comprising businessmen who claimed to be representing the Perak BN leadership.

Seven Pakatan Rakyat representatives accompanied the duo as they lodged their report.

On 5 Feb, BN gained the majority in the state government after four rival Pakatan Rakyat representatives quit their respective parties.

Three later declared themselves BN-friendly Independents while the other rejoined Umno.

The MACC was launched by Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to replace the Anti-Corruption Agency.

It is part of his efforts to reform the anti-graft body agency in the hope that its officers would be impartial, fair and efficient in combating corruption.
