MACC chief upset over Kit Siang’s ‘monkey’ remark
IPOH: Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief Dzulkifli Ahmad has said opposition leader Lim Kit Siang’s reference to monkeys when criticising him over the 1MDB issue, was “extreme and uncivilised”.
Dzulkifli said that while he was open to criticism from the DAP leader, it should be conveyed in a civilised manner.
“The people can judge whether the behaviour and words of the DAP leader are in accordance with Malaysian culture.
“We are civilised people but the words used are extreme and uncivilised,” he said to reporters after attending the unveiling of an anti-corruption mural by Perak Menteri Besar Zambry Abd Kadir at the MACC Perak office in conjunction with the MACC anti-corruption roadshow here.
A news portal reported today that Lim had criticised Dzulkifli by saying that all eyes were on the graft-buster, specifically on whether he would lead a clean MACC.
Lim said Dzulkifli should realise that if he acted as the traditional three monkeys – with eyes that see not, ears that hear not, and a mouth that speaks not – over the 1MDB scandal, he would make the MACC the first “kleptocratic” anti-corruption agency in the world.
Yes, I agree with LKS, your performance is oly slightly better than your predecessors. By not ging after 1MDB - you all-talk, not much show. And lately going after non issue cases like that of Mr. Phang in Penang and suing LGE, you show unprofessionalism.
