KUCHING, March 13: A Sarawakian activist has today requested the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to conduct an investigation against the late Governor Pehin Sri Taib Abdul Mahmud after lodging a police report at Miri Central Police Station yesterday.

In a statement today, activist Dennis Along said he made an official request at MACC’s office at the Wisma Persekutuan building to open an investigation into the property and assets owned by Taib in over 25 countries across the globe.

Dennis, who is also Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Baram branch communication chief, alleged that there are 332 companies in Malaysia which were linked to the late Taib, who was also former Chief Minister of Sarawak.

According to the police report he produced, it is stated that on March 9, 2024 at 3.30pm, he was browsing the internet and had come across some material through social messaging platform WhatsApp and a political activism blog.

He claimed he was shocked that the late Taib, being a civil servant, is purported to have owned so many companies and so much property.

“With that, I hope to request the police and MACC to launch an investigation into companies related to late Taib and his assets across Sarawak despite his demise to determine whether the news report I sighted online is true.

“We hope to see his family denying the report to clear his (Taib’s) name to stop the negative perception towards his family,” said Dennis in a statement today. — DayakDaily
