MACC ‘DEEP THROAT’ COMES OUT OF THE CLOSET




By : RAJA PETRA KAMARUDIN

ONE interesting document in that file is regarding the RM15,000 a month that Vincent Tan was paying Azmin Ali. Other than shares, houses and cars totalling about RM1.5 million, almost RM10 million in cash and cheques flowed through Azmin’s and Shamsidar Taharin’s (Azmin’s wife’s) bank accounts.

All these transactions were confirmed and certified by the banks concerned. The gist of this whole story is about how the ACA had gathered enough evidence to arrest and prosecute Azmin Ali for corruption involving millions of Ringgit but the then Deputy Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim, told them to NFA (no further action) the case and bury the file.


Last month, a retired Anti-Corruption Commission or MACC officer met up with me in London to hand over a thick file of hundreds of documents. This was one very disillusioned anti-corruption officer who wanted the world to know that some of the MACC officers are as corrupted as the people they are supposed to investigate. He made it sound as if it was like putting the fox in charge of the chicken run.

I suppose that makes sense when you consider that people under interrogation have been known to fall out of the window of the MACC office. The old adage of ‘dead men tell no tales’ is very true and it does not cost that much to ensure that witnesses fall out of windows so that the case would go no further, like this particular case we are going to talk about.

Anyway, in that file I was given are police reports, investigation reports, recorded and signed statements, minutes, statements of accounts, bank statements, copies of cheques, vouchers, contract notes, and so on. Basically, it was an entire file going back 17 years when the MACC was still known as the ACA (Anti-Corruption Agency).

The gist of this whole story is about how the ACA had gathered enough evidence to arrest and prosecute Azmin Ali for corruption involving millions of Ringgit but the then Deputy Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim, told them to NFA (no further action) the case and bury the file.

The file remained buried all this while until my ex-MACC Deep Throat was able to exhume it and run me a copy of the entire file. I must say that the contents of the file, which took quite a while to read and digest, is not only most interesting but is extremely damaging to both Azmin and Anwar.

One interesting document in that file is regarding the RM15,000 a month that Vincent Tan was paying Azmin Ali. It seems Vincent Tan not only financed the fall of Perak but is also financing the ‘other side’ as well. And, according to my ex-MACC Deep Throat, this is still going on. I suppose that is what most Chinese tycoons would do: hedge your bets by placing your money on all the horses in the race.

Other than shares, houses and cars totalling about RM1.5 million, almost RM10 million in cash and cheques flowed through Azmin’s and Shamsidar Taharin’s (Azmin’s wife’s) bank accounts. All these transactions were confirmed and certified by the banks concerned, as the attached reports show (see below).

I am publishing just a few documents from the hundreds to show you what happened. These documents are marked ‘SULIT’ and, therefore, come under the Official Secrets Act. So be careful what you do with them. Better not print them out and have them on your person or else you can end up in jail.

Anyway, I will let the documents tell the rest of the story. I have summarised in English what the ex-MACC officer told me to make it easier for you to follow the case. His original ‘cheong hei’ statement in Bahasa Malaysia is below that, followed by the documents.

  1. Vincent Tan is paying Azmin Ali RM15,000 a month? How true is this allegation? The SPRM should start a probe on this case.

  2. The banks concerned have already certified the transactions and the authorities have enough evidence to arrest and prosecute Azmin. I think Azmin should explain about this allegation.
