TI-M Calls MACC to Investigate Taib


As can be seen from the above photo, HICT (HELP International College of Technology) – I worked there once – is being dismantled, to prepare for their imminent move to Fraser Business Park in vibrant KL. And with this move, HICT will be no more, to be replaced by a new name and identity, i.e. HCAT or HELP College of Arts and Technology.

Transparency-International Malaysia on Friday adds to the growing cacophony of public calls to the country’s graft-busters to investigate claims of corruption against Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud, saying Malaysia’s global standing is now at stake The anti-graft watchdog urged the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to take immediate action as complaints of corruption against Taib have surfaced in the foreign media – and this will tarnish Malaysia’s image and damage our credibility.

TI-M president Paul Low told reporters: “The allegations we’re concerned about is (the) massive amount of wealth that’s been gained by people close to him (Taib), (his) family, relatives, friends”.

Arsenal overturned a two-goal deficit but could only earn a point as their EPL title aspirations were badly dented. Although, the Gunners showed steely determination in the fight back against West Brom to earn an eventual 2-2 draw – this is still another disappointing result.
