GEORGE TOWN – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission is trying to trace the
father of a Penang DAP assemblyman to assist its probe regarding alleged
“under-table dealings” for the purchase of affordable homes.
State MACC director Datuk Abd Aziz Aban said they were having difficulty
“So far we have not been able to contact him. He is also not at home,” he
told Bernama when contacted.
He said MACC had taken statements from six individuals regarding the case
and that investigations were still ongoing.
The probe followed a video clip going viral online that allegedly showed the
man, aged 68, brokering deals so that buyers could “cut the queue” on the
waiting list to get the homes which are very much in demand in the state.
Meanwhile, Penang DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow, when met at the state-level
National Day celebration here, said the party would not be conducting an
internal probe on the matter as it had nothing to do with the assemblyman
He added that the party would give its fullest cooperation to the MACC on
the matter if asked.
