After Tokong led his worshippers to sign the MACC’s anti-corruption pledge to show that Pulau Pinang is serious in getting rid of corrupt office-holders, the pledge was followed by a series of actions to show their resolve.
First, an illegal factory producing carbon filters was raided by authorities today.
The multi agencies team lead by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) went to the factory, which is located in an oil palm estate near Sungai Lembu at about 10.15am.
Other agencies in the integrated operation were Inland Revenue Board, Immigration Department and Department of Environment.
Sources from MACC revealed that the commission also seized some documents related to the illegal factory at the Seberang Prai Municipal Council headquarters in Bandar Perda.
Another team of MACC officers stormed the 53rd floor of the state administration office at about 11.30am.
MACC officers were seen entering the office of state Welfare, Caring Society and Environment Committee chairman Phee Boon Poh.
The raid is believed to be a follow-up to the MACC’s investigations into the illegal factory in Kampung Sungai Lembu.
Tokong must be absolutely pleased that the MACC is helping him with his corruption-free pledge. The Tokong is also in the process of getting himself rid from the Pulau Pinang government to ensure the island’s government remains free from corrupted officials.
Meanwhile Phee Boon Poh who was very arrogant when confronted with the PPS issue showed a different body lamguage after the raid. It must be his corruption-free stance.
Thank you, Tokong for signing the pledge, and thank you MACC for helping him.
