KOTA KINABALU: Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) yesterday refuted reports published in several Chinese dailies that a heavyweight LDP leader has been called up to record statement by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) pertaining to the alleged siphoning of RM 1.5 billion from rural infrastructure development funds.
LDP President Datuk Seri Panglima Teo Chee Kang said the news reports are completely untrue and therefore the party felt the need to clarify the matter and clear the air.
Teo, who is also the Minister of Special Tasks, said the MACC has the right to call any individuals who can provide information to assist in its investigations.
“As responsible citizens, we have the obligation to cooperate with the authorities.
“However, no party leaders from LDP has been called by MACC to give their statements pertaining to the case to date,” he said in a press statement.
Teo said LDP will certainly cooperate with MACC to bring the perpetrators to justice if need be.
“At this moment, all parties should give the commission space to conduct its investigation.
“We should not make unfounded speculations,” said Teo.-Moses Wong/BNN
