MACC: Ramkarpal should be careful when making statements

BAHAU: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has advised Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal (pic) to be careful when making statements.

Its chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad said this in response to a statement issued by the DAP lawmaker concerning MACC's 48-hour ultimatum to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to apologise over his "slanderous" words against the anti-graft body.

"Ramkarpal made the statement in his capacity as an MP and not counsel for the Penang Chief Minister. I wish to advise him to be careful because there are slanderous and defamatory elements in his media statement," said Dzulkifli.

He said this on Sunday after visiting settlers at Kg Serampang Indah near here.

Ramkarpal in his statement had among others said that Lim's remark was justified.

Lim allegedly told a press conference on Thursday that it was "penahanan haram oleh SPRM" (illegal detention by the MACC) of Penang exco member Phee Boon Poh.

Phee is being probed over an illegal carbon filter-processing factory in Kampung Sungai Lembu, Bukit Mertajam

Dzulkilfi also refuted claims that the MACC was harassing and intimidating the Selangor government.

To this, Dzulkifli said the MACC was the one that was being harassed and intimidated.

"Some people make all kinds of false allegations against us. We are impartial and are merely doing our job," he added.
