All BN candidates for GE13 to be vetted by MACC; Najib to be the first
When there are so many accusations of corruption in the UMNO/BN cabinet as can be seen from their lavish life-styles and when Najib has declared that he will fight corruption since one of the ETPs involves reduction of corruption, it is rather shameful for Najib to declare that all BN candidates to be vetted by MACC at the eleventh hour instead of on the day he took over as UMNO president.
However this shameful effort is not the end of it; Najib should volunteer to be vetted first! Najib is acting the ‘holier than thou’ act yet he has been accused of being part of the useless Scorpene-Altantuya RM500 commission that still pose the question, “ where did the money trail in Hong Kong end?”
Earlier this year Najib wants to inculcate a “natural abhorrence to corruption into the conscience of society.”Oh, what a joke!
Remember the engagement event for his daughter that was invoiced to the prime Minister office? What about his personal and holiday trips that his officials defended him without actually saying that he used his own money! This is to avoid being accused of using public funds for his vacations. But if this is so, how did he manage to go on holidays and visit his sons and attended his daughter’s engagement in Kazakhstan using his own money, then travelled to Australia with his wife on a shopping spree?
Then let the MACC check his wife’s account and expenses. Evaluate all her jewelry and expensive accessories and compute the total amount and see whether Najib can afford them or not, based on his official income. If Rosmah declares that it is her own money from saving since childhood, then MACC must check the records to verify.
Malaysians have noticed a succession of people who have come forward to implicate Najib, his wife Rosmah Mansor, his brother Nazim Abdul Razak as well as those in positions of responsibility, such as Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail and Home Minister Hishamuddin Hussein of various corruption scandals as well.
Critics have also pointed out that under Najib’s premiership for 39 months, is not only more corrupt than under the two previous Prime Ministers Tun Dr. Mahathir and Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, but is heading towards the dubious honour of being the only Asian-Pacific country to slip in both Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index (CPI) ranking and score since the introduction of the annual assessment 17 years ago in 1995.
So why not all the BN candidates refuse to be vetted unless Najib is vetted first! This is how leading by example should be. This is how a true leader should be; be the first to walk the talk.
