I am really flabbergasted. Why? This special officer of Info Minister Rais Yatim who is still under investigation over his alleged involvement in MCMC's 1Malaysia notebook scandal, is now a Dato'! What the 'four-letter-word'! (Sorry pals)
I think Nazri Abdullah gets a full blessing from the minister himself. Of course it needs the boss himself to recommend him the 'datukship'. While the MACC has gathered enough evidence to implicate him, this anti-corruption agency is also dragging its feet over some reasons I am not able to establish.
And on top of that, a Datuk S who is also being investigated over what is termed by the MACC as his 'involvement' in money laundering, is back at the MCMC. He and Nazri are believed to have clad together in the notebook scandal.
To Nasharuddin Amir, the investigating officer of the MACC, I personally would like a downright answer as to why no action has been taken thus far. As far as I was informed, there were tangible evidence to take this two people in.
I sometimes have doubt in our system. When politics and some 'bosses' are involved, major cases tend to get proper cover-up, right? Or perhaps the MACC is too busy attending to the corruption cases involving dozens of customs officers!
I hate to comment more on the Info Ministry (a former minister used to say that about 70 per cent of the ministry's staff have to be rehabilitated mentally and ethically to enable it be more efficient) but I hope the minister doesnt close an eye on matters like this.
If you got a bad apple, get rid of it before others gobble and swallow it!
