‘Stop dishing out advice as your own son was under MACC probe’
DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang is a hypocrite for urging Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin to go on leave in the wake of a real estate corruption scandal that is being investigated in the state, said former Johor MIC Youth chief S. Deva.
He said Lim’s opinion on the case was “laughable” because the party was embroiled in a much worse corruption scandal that had rocked the DAP-led Penang government.
“He should not be hypocritical because everybody knows his son, Lim Guan Eng, the Penang chief minister, has been linked to a corruption scandal where he was investigated and arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.”
Deva said unlike the DAP-led Penang government, the Johor government, under the Barisan Nasional, had approached the investigation in a transparent manner.
He said the state executive councillor, linked to two suspects detained in the case, had gone on leave.
“Johor executive councillor member Datuk Abd Latif Bandi had voluntarily gone on leave so that MACC can conduct a thorough investigation, even though the one being investigated is his son, and not him.”
He said this was the gentlemanly attitude of a true Johorean who was not afraid to face challenges in finding the truth.
“If they are guilty, then charge them in court.
“If not, don’t simply make accusations.”
