Dr Azly Rahman:
"DECLARE YOUR ASSETS, Malaysian politicians! Here's why ...please share widely
WHY MALAYSIAN ELECTED OFFICIALS MUST DECLARE ASSETS ...
because Barack Obama and Joe Biden did for all Americans to view.
Please share this with all Malaysians: http://www.barackobama.com/tax-returns "
Security was mentioned as to why BN government refused to reveal Malaysian ministers' assets to the public, especially relating to family members. I am sure the real problem is that this would reveal all their ill-gotten gains from corruption, or at least under-declarations of past incomes based on those assets.
We used to have investigations of ministers and other public officials who live beyond their means, but Dr Mahathir put a stop to that during his time. Since then no other PM had the guts to undo this, so what can we expect from Paul Low within the PM's department? If not for show, then what?
From The New Straight Times Malaysia:
What a start for Paul Low, allowing himself to be compromised in this illegal appointment, can we expect him to eradicate corruption from within?
