‘Don’t jump the gun!’- Sivarrajh slams TI President for hasty remark


MIC youth urges Transparenct International President Jose Ugaz not to jump the gun but wait for the investigation on the RM2.6 billion in the account of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.

MIC Youth is saddened by the hasty and ill thought out statement by Jose Ugaz which has brought TI into conflict with the Malaysian government.

“We express disapproval over the criticism against the government at the 16th International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC). The TI president should not have jumped the gun and make his own conclusion on the current situation involving the donation. He should have waited for the official investigations to be over.”, slammed the MIC Youth Chief.

“The due process of law and investigation must be allowed to take its course unhindered and free from bias and prejudicial opinion.”

“He should have allowed the due process of law to take its course. This is only fair. TI always advocates the role of law over violence, brute force or deception.”

“As the president of TI, the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption, it is only right and fair that Jose Ugaz subscribes to the due process of law and the rule of law itself.”,Sivarrajh stressed further.

The investigation is currently led by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and special task force.” It is inappropriate to make conclusion based on one’s emotions.”,said Siva.

“For a man who believes in due process and occupying  exalted position, he has posed questions like ordinary persons.”

“TI and other international civil societies must realise that Malaysia is governed by its own law and the law must be allowed to take its course without interference and no one is above the law.”

“Bias and prejudicial statements are undesirable and hindrance to investigation process.”, said Sivarrajh.
