The Malaysian Insider : Selangor Umno backs Hasan Ali in Selcat spat
PUTRAJAYA, Sept 26 — Selangor Umno supported the call by Selangor PAS commissioner Datuk Dr Hasan Ali who urged the state’s Select Committee on Competency, Accountability and Transparency’s (Selcat) to carry out investigations behind closed doors.
Selangor Umno deputy chief Datuk Noh Omar said if the process was carried out openly, it could tarnish the image and dignity of government officers who were called in for questioning.
He said that Selcat should not carry out “open trial” as the committee was not a court.
“It’s as though Selcat is trying to take over the role of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC). Open hearing will only embarrass the officers,” he told reporters at a Hari Raya open house hosted by former Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and wife Tun Jeanne Abdullah here today.
He said that it was not fair for Selcat to call in officers to testify when it was the job of the MACC to do so.
“This is like doing the job twice. The MACC should be the one taking action if there is an abuse of power or corruption,” he said. — Bernama
