I was told that a team of eight MACC officers 'visited' the office of a high-ranking officer at a broadcasting complex last week. Details are unknown but they spent a few hours with him during that two days 'Q & A' session.
The core of investigation was about my posting on Airtime Scandal last month which drew mixed reaction from readers. Minister in-charge Datuk Seri Utama Rais Yatim, in responding to the posting promised a full investigation into it.
I called the MACC but was told to wait for the outcome. "We are still investigating. It will take sometimes... but we got some leads here," on official said.
Another upsetting news I got was, about 600 companies have registered with the TV station for airtime approval but it was only given to a 'selected few'. I dont understand it as we are encouraging local contents to be aired on all TV stations.
A few people, including a former MP also promised me evidence relating to a person named 'Anuar' awarded with most airtime although he is not directly involved in any kind of television production programs.
How many people are actually involved in the issuance of television airtime? I really dont know but it could be three or four by government standard.
And this officer is expected to reach his retirement age less than a year from now. If you are a policeman, some people are already watching you prior to your retirement...
