The ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) does not need to win two-thirds control of Parliament to improve the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) as such plans would not necessarily be opposed by Pakatan Rakyat (PR), say its lawmakers. Shazwan Mustafa Kamal and Mohd Farhan Darwis report for the Malaysian Insider.
The controversy surrounding the death of a young political assistant at the MACC office will now force Malaysians to look seriously into the decline in standing and credibility of our state institutions, and to ask how they can arrest the slide in performance and credibility of public institutions such as the anti-corruption commission, observes Farish Noor.
Aliran is shocked and appalled at the death of Teoh Beng Hock, the political secretary to Selangor state executive councillor Ean Yong Hean Wah. Teoh was found dead on a fifth-floor roof-top of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam two days ago after giving his statement at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office, located nine floors above in the building. The circumstances surrounding the death are highly suspicious and if anyone is found directly or indirectly responsible, they should be brought to justice.
