In a dramatic move, a group of NGOs have today called on the Malaysian Attorney General and the Inspector General of Police to arrest Abdul Taib Mahmud.

A letter drawn up by the Bruno Manser Fund and signed by a number of Malaysian and international NGOs, including Greenpeace, requests “the immediate arrest and criminal prosecution” of Taib, along with 13 family members, whom it names as “co-conspirators in the illegal appropriation of public funds.”

The demand represents the culmination of evidence against the Chief Minister, who is now internationally recognised as one of the world’s most corrupted leaders and as being personally responsible for much of the destruction of the Borneo jungle. [For full text visit stop-timber-corruption.org]

Plain evidence

The letter makes clear that so much evidence about the corruption of Taib and his family members is now publicly available that it is no longer acceptable to leave the matter with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), which announced an investigation into the Chief Minister last year.

The letter says:

“We firmly believe that it is not enough for the MACC to announce a public investigation and immediate police action should be taken. Ample evidence of Mr Taib’s and his co-conspirators’ offenses is available, and the above-mentioned suspects might use their remaining time in freedom to destroy evidence, to intimidate possible witnesses and to transfer their substantial illicit assets out of the country.”

We all know, of course, that Taib Mahmud is by no means the only BN robber baron that must be arrested immediately. If we had more fearless and independent investigative reporters like Clare Rewcastle Brown on the job, I'm sure Najib Razak and his entire corrupt cabinet would also be on the list. Thanks to the incurable Dr M, however, every state institution has been subsumed into obsequious service of the corrupt BN regime - especially the Attorney General and the Polis Di Raja Malaysia. Which leaves it to us, the people, to make citizens' arrest a new form of national service. The next time you see BN ministers on the street, don't shake their hand - just handcuff them. If you don't have handcuffs handy, just point your bone at them (they will fade quietly away).

If you want to end corruption in Malaysis start on this FAKE first!
How come we still "adored" this scum? How come we still allow him so much publicity?

@Anonymous - Very good link you left above. Readers who wish to follow it have to copy & paste because it's not active link, so I'll make it easier for them by providing an ACTIVE LINK to the article you suggested!

You're spot on that Umno/BN's heavy-duty corruption became institutionalized during the Mahathir era. A man of deep resentments and ludicrously shallow visions.

Best to corner PM Najib to the wall now! M’sia decays to African democracy & human rights levels.

Soros on Taib: “Look at the Sarawak Chief Minister selling billions worth of timber concessions under the table; selling every piece of state land to businessmen without tender; using his own companies to obtain lucrative government contracts; … 'you pay I approve'. He has 8 billion US stashed overseas.” “In China people have been shot for embezzling one thousand dollars. With 8 billion you have stolen, therefore you would be shot 80 thousand times.”

Putrajaya only had 6,008 voters but Opposition-held Kapar had a staggering 112,224 voters, 17 times more than Putrajaya. Gerrymandering & deceit, not democracy!

Hamed Sepawie, bet your bank transfers & shredding machines are working round the clock now.

DUN Speaker Asfia Nassar, let’s see you continue your criminal antics & sabotage Opposition on the the PA system.

Awang Tengah, Len Talip, Masing, you are doomed, for the worst to come.

Stephen Rundi & Idris Buang! Where are you hiding? Come & repeat those idotic remarks you made.

All these clowns, cowboys & cronies, even the heads of Police… mark them now. We want them arrested too.

Let’s pray for the innocent & ill-treated peoples of Sarawak.

Alan Newman, it's hilarious you use Soros remarks on Taib in your comment. It really made me laughed out really hard. If anything, Soros should be shot first, people like him is the root cause of the problem, he's a lap dog for the Illuminatis. What Taib is doing to Sarawak is no different from what the conquerers of North America did to the Red Indians, the only difference is, they did it many many years ago before internet.

And if the World really wants to stop the rape of the planet via timber/oil industry, they should start by legalising hemp.
