KUCHING, Feb 7: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Stakan branch holds that Democratic Action Party (DAP) should not be selective in fighting graft but look into the old accounts of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir as promised before 14th general election.
“The DAP is concerned about the former Prime Minister’s wife Datin (Seri) Rosmah (Mansor) who is suspected of being involved in a large-scale solar panel fraud case but it should, at the same time, honor the promise of reviewing Mahathir’s old account after taking office.
“Our position is to support any anti-corruption efforts. As the solar panel fraud case is in trial, we should leave the issue to the process of the law as she has being charged and the Court is hearing the case.
“Anyway, this is a project awarded by the federal government.”
“On the issue of fighting corruption, DAP should not be selective or deliberately shifting its focus. DAP must explain when it will fulfil its promise to check the old accounts of Dr Mahathir,” said SUPP Stakan chief Sim Kiang Chiok.
He said before Dr Mahathir returned to be prime minister, the DAP leader called the police to investigate on Dr Mahathir for depositing more than RM1,194 billion overseas.
“DAP leader Lim Kit Siang also proposed the establishment of a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the suspected involvement of RM31.5 billion foreign exchange loss.
“In addition, the expensive Penang Undersea Tunnel case and the purchase of cheap luxury homes during the time when (Finance Minister) Lim Guan Eng was Chief Minister of Penang.
“The people would like to know the truth to these cases but they are seemed to be swept under the carpet by the DAP,” said Sim.
Sim further pressured DAP to realise its other electoral promises.
“Further DAP Sarawak has promised to give us our 20 per cent oil royalties, 50 per cent tax returns and 30 per cent of annual federal development fund when they formed the federal government.
“It has being more than one and half year and they have not honoured a single promise that they have made. Every delay is making every Sarawakian poorer and their Malaya richer.
“DAP is consistently Inconsistent in their fight against corruption and have lost all credibility for failing to fulfil their promises,” said Sim. —DayakDaily
