|Just one month after his initial report, Mazlan Harun was at the Anti Corruption Agency office in Kuala Lumpur to present evidence in support of his complaint.
Outspoken grassroots leader Kadar Shah Sulaiman Ninam Shah, who acted as Mazlan’s spokesman, said Mazlan had put in a second report today.
Armed with an album of photographs and video clip, Mazlan (right) was said to have submitted proof of Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s alleged misdeeds.
On Aug 5, Mazlan had lodged a report with the ACA Federal Territory office, alleging that Abdullah had abused government machinery to garner support for himself in the coming party elections.
Mazlan’s report was based on an open letter written by Petaling Jaya Selatan Umno division chief Zahar Hashim and addressed to the party’s secretary-general, demanding that both Abdullah and Najib be disciplined for allegedly abusing their power.
The letter alleged that Abdullah and his deputy Najib Abdul Razak had used a government agency under the Information Ministry called the Special Affairs Department (Jasa) as their party’s campaigning platform.Met leaders of nine states
Kadar Shah said: “We’ve given proof to the ACA to support the allegations.
“Other than photographs, there is also a video clip of the alleged meetings.”
On why the duo has sought the help of ACA instead of the Umno disciplinary board, Kadar Shah (right) said: “We’ve already reported this to party secretary-general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor but nothing has been done.
“But how can we expect them to take action against themselves?” he added.
According to Kadar Shah, Abdullah and his deputy had met with branch and division leaders of nine states from May 3 till June 29.
“Other than the hotel accommodation, money (RM50-RM200) were also handed out,” said Kadar Shah.
Abdullah has since denied that there have been any wrongdoings during his meeting with the branch and division leaders.
The premier said what he did was “normal and nothing to fuss about”.
