KUALA LUMPUR – The Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth feel every action taken by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), including asking for an explanation from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to complete an investigation is certainly required so as to give a clear picture of the issue at hand.
BN Youth chairman Khairy Jamaluddin said as a credible independent body, each investigation (by the MACC) must be carried out until it produces an outcome which is acceptable to the public.
“If need be, evidence (must be) given by the prime minister himself to help the investigations must be complete and comprehensive to prove that the MACC conducted the investigations without fear or favour.
“This mean the MACC conducted a transparent investigation, without hindrance or anything to hide,” he told reporters after chairing the BN Youth Exco meeting at the Putra World Trade Centre here Thursday.
He was commenting on the MACC statement on Wednesday which clarified that the RM2.6 billion which had been deposited in Najib’s personal account was from a donor from the middle east and Najib would be asked to explain. Khairy who is also UMNO Youth chief said he was confident that if the intention of the MACC to ask for an explanation from Najib was to show that its investigations are transparent, then the results would convince the people.
In a separate development, Khairy described the action of certain parties who lambasted Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and called for his resignation from UMNO as irresponsible.
“Tan Sri Muhyiddin’s position in UMNO (as Deputy President) must be respected, as well as that of Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal (Vice-President).
“Any action which does not reflect the party’s culture must be rejected as it would cause a split in UMNO,” he said.
