Government delivery system was not at fault as far as the billions ringgit diversions or leakages of federal funds to Sarawak as revealed by Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) recently said Minister in the Prime Minister Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz,
“No, I don’t think there is a fault in the delivery system but it’s too premature for me to comment because I don’t know the details,” he said as reported by state dailies on Thursday.
The corruption watch dog on Nov 26, said it would closely monitor government agencies and offices in the state particularly Resident’s and District offices suspected of diverting or leaking federal funds.
Shamsiah Abu Bakar, state MACC director said “the problem of funds diversion was likely to take place at Resident’s and District office point,” as these offices were the end point where disbursements of funds took place.
MACC earlier this month revealed that more than 60 percent of federal funds to the tune of billions ringgit were either diverted or leaked after its investigate a complaint from Kuching Member of Parliament, Chong Chieng Jen in Parliament.
Chong alleged an allocation of RM1.4 million for the Kuching parliamentary constituency was given to organisations outside of the area, namely in Mukah, Limbang and Lawas.
