The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has been accused of possibly losing certain receipts that could prove that DAP did not siphon off state government funds.
The allegation was made by lawyer Lim Lip Eng today outside the Royal Commission of Inquiry investigating Teoh Beng Hock's death. However, Lim today claimed that those receipts had already been given to MACC.
"I just want to tell the truth. On Sept 14, 2009, MACC Putrajaya, through my law firm, had already
Lim, the DAP Segambut MP, said that MACC had either misplaced the receipts or its lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah "did not do his homework". "MACC should be the one producing those receipts,' he added.
Lim was today present to represent his client Lee Wye Wing, a businessman who was engaged as contractor for several projects by Seri Kembangan state assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah (Teoh's boss).
When Lee took the stand yesterday, Shafee alleged that Lee has been raising funds for DAP through Ean Yong's projects. Shafee asked the RCI to order Lee to produce certain receipts to prove that DAP Serdang Aman had paid out advances to contractors before being later reimbursed. The commission, however, turned down Shafee's application, saying that the MACC should not "make use of the commission".

The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) should take stern action against telecommunication and utility companies who dig up roads without permits.
Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng said he had visited at least six sites including Desa Sri Hartamas, Solaris Mont Kiara, Bandar Manjalara and Segambut Dalam where roads had been dug up without permits from DBKL. "DBKL has confirmed with me that these companies did not apply for a permit to dig up the roads," he said. Lim was speaking to reporters in Taman Bukit Maluri, where work to lay cables for a telco company had been going on for more than two months.
Resident Lim Giam Soon, 58, who is also a committee member of the Yee Lan Bukit Maluri temple committee, said workers who dug up the road had dumped the earth into the drain along Jalan Burung Jentayu and Jalan Burung Enggang. "They started digging the road before Chinese New Year and there is still work being done at other areas. The earth has clogged up the drain and it has been left there for awhile," said Giam Soon. He added that a stretch at the intersection of the two roads had been dug up but not resurfaced, resulting in a pothole that posed a danger to motorists. He had taken his own initiative to place two rocks and a traffic cone at the stretch to alert motorists. "The hole is quite big and dangerous for motorcyclists," Giam Soon said.
Lip Eng urged companies who planned to lay cables or pipes to go through the proper channels. "DBKL has advised residents to inform them when they see companies digging up roads without permits. "I also hope that the DBKL can set up a special squad to check on these complaints," he said.
As of press time, DBKL has yet to give their comments on the matter.
