Sarawak Chief Minister repeated his pledge of not allowing his family members and relatives to apply for logging concessions or state land.

However non of his cabinet members had followed suit to make similar pledges publicly.

Tan Sri Adenan said his cabinet can decide on their own whether to declare or not their pledge not to allow their family members or relatives to apply for logging concessions or state land.

“I’m still committed to that (pledge). This one (to get the other Cabinet members of the State to make a similar pledge) is up to them…though I would advise them to do so,” he said according to Bernama on Wednesday.

Adenan, who became Sarawak’s fifth Chief Minister last March had made a commitment not to allow his immediate family members to apply for state land or logging concessions as recommended by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief Commissioner, Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed last June.
