Logging deal: Kedah MB denies being probed by ACA
Kedah Menteri Besar Syed Razak Syed Zain today denied he was being investigated by the Anti-Corruption Agency over a RM120 million sum allegedly paid by a company for a logging contract in the Ulu Muda forest reserve in the state.
The MB was asked to clarify the matter at the state assembly by Sala representative and PAS information chief Azizan Abdul Razak.
Contacted later, Azizan said he wanted Syed Razak to confirm if the Finance Ministry parliamentary secretary was correct to assert that the matter was currently being investigated by the ACA.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
