Wong Tack wants MACC probe into PMO’s Lynas FAQ

Bentong MP Wong Tack is demanding that the MACC look into the decision by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to distribute a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) on the Lynas rare earth issue.

“Previously, we have seen certain ministries flying here and there, interfering in matters not within their purview,” claimed Wong in a statement today.

He said that we now see the same thing from the PMO.

“This is an insult not just to the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Climate Change and Environment (MESTECC), but to the PMO as well,” he said.

Wong added his personal belief that Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad would not have allowed the PMO to be compromised and “his good office to be degraded into a sales office, his officers relegated to become the mouthpiece of Lynas.”

Therefore, Wong said it was imperative that those officers responsible be identified.

“They have abused and humiliated the highest office of our country.

“It is obvious their actions were intended to legitimise the operations of a foreign corporation,” he claimed.

“I urge the MACC to step in to investigate the officers involved for possible abuse of power or corruption,” he added.
