Pressure is mounting for attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail to be investigated for corruption and abuse of power after former Ho Hup Bhd managing director Low Tuck Choy lodged a police report recently asking why the authorities have not begun investigations.
Low claimed that Ho Hup’s invoice, with Gani’s name on it, which was put up on a blog last year is genuine, and questioned Deputy Minister Liew Vui Kong’s statement in Parliament last month that the authorities were mulling whether to begin investigations.
The invoice states that RM18,000 was paid by Ho Hup for electrical work on a bungalow in Seremban.
Low, 54, in his report dated July 20, which was sighted by Malaysiakini, said despite reports he had lodged over the company’s affairs with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and also his complaint to the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Ismail Sabri two years ago, no one has taken his statement.
He urged the authorities to investigate Gani “without fear or favour”.
“I refer to Liew’s statement in Parliament on June 26, where he stated that the MACC is still mulling over the possibility of investigating claims that Gani had accepted bribes from a construction firm.
“I believe the construction firm referred to by Liew is Ho Hup. Based on Liew’s statement, I am of the view that MACC has not actually started to investigate Gani but is merely considering to do so.
“My understanding is that up to the time Liew made the statement, MACC has yet to open an investigation file against Abdul Gani,” Low says in his report.
He confirmed that a Ho Hup invoice form stating Gani was the beneficiary, cash vouchers and a cheque dated Aug 12, 2009, amounting to RM18,000 in favour of an electrical company doing the renovations, put up on the Malaysia Today blog operated by Raja Petra Kamaruddin, were genuine.
Low in his report said he believes the RM18,000 payment was received and it should appear in Ho Hup’s accounts.
Gani’s involvement in Ho Hup tussle
He confirmed Gani’s personal involvement in the Ho Hup boardroom tussle which began in 2008, about which he has lodged reports with the MACC and the ministry in 2010.
“In the reports to the ministry and the MACC chief commissioner Abu Kassim Mohamed, I stressed the need for the government to stay clear of interfering or showing favour to a particular party involved in inter-company commercial disputes, to the extent of abusing authority to provide unfair advantage to the party being favoured,” said Low.
He was referring to the tussle between him and former Ho Hup deputy executive chairperson Vincent Lye, who is from Sabah and is said to be favoured by Gani, as could be seen in various articles on the web.
Low also produced a picture of Gani sitting with Lye as further evidence in the report.
However, Low said that although he had lodged reports
