What are you hiding Nazri, Liew?

KUALA LUMPUR: Social activist Robert Phang wants all senior politicians and government servants in the country to heed the Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s instruction to voluntarily declare their assets to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Phang, who is the founder-cum chairman of Social Care Foundation, said that among those who should especially take note are Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz and the deputy minister VK Liew.

The philanthropist was ticked off by Liew’s statement that it is inappropriate for MACC to keep records of properties of ministers and deputy ministers.

“If you still have much to hide, then quit. Needless to say, VK Liew and other politicians should be reminded that they are elected by the people to serve in public office and their salaries come from law-abiding taxpayers.

“Therefore they are accountable to the people at all times and can be made answerable to MACC when needed. People are their bosses,” he stressed.

Phang made the call in a brief statement to the media while welcoming Najib’s instruction that were issued on Monday.

The prime minister had declared that the MACC would have full access to the declaration of assets of all members of the federal administration, from ministers downwards, and their families.

Such information that was previously available only to the prime minister will now be passed on to the commission in a continuing move towards greater government transparency.

The ruling follows a recent suggestion by MACC advisory panel that it be given copies of the statutory declaration of assets of the members of the administration and their families.
