CM Taib makes Official Statement…..

We were informed a few days ago that CM Taib will make an official stand on some allegations. This morning it was already in the print/media and we put it up in Twitter a few hours ago.

Many journalists just could not wait for the CM’s official statement and also ‘kopi shop’ talk was that he will deny all allegations. Whichever side of the political divide you belong to one must take into account that he as the polical leader has the “courage to spill the beans and put it right.”

You can deliberate till the cows come home at night but the fact remains he is already very much ,

Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud has categorically denied allegations by the Bruno Manser Fund (BMF) that he has a bank account in Switzerland.

The long-serving chief minister made the denial in a personal statement in the state legislative assembly after the question-and-answer session this morning.

“Let me state categorically that I have no secret Swiss bank account, nor assets or investments of any description. None whatsoever.

“Indeed I have so stated in an unequivocal term in a letter addressed last month to the president of the Swiss Federation.

“In my letter, I have specifically asked the president to confirm that she has allegedly ordered any investigation into the allegations by the BMF to the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (Finma) or to furnish me with a copy of the application so that I can exercise my right to seek and obtain legal redress,” he said. 

NONE“I also pledge to render my fullest cooperation to the Swiss Federation to swiftly bring the truth to light so as to nail down all malicious falsehoods.

“Let me reiterate here that the allegations by BMF are false, evidently politically motivated,” Taib (right) said.

He said that BMF has a track record of making scurrilous and scandalous allegations against the state government of Sarawak for many years, including the cutting down of 90 percent of our rainforests, although local and international forestry experts have certified that 70 percent of our forests are still being sustainably managed.

“Therefore, BMF’s false allegations that I have assets in Switzerland is a continuation of its malicious efforts to smear the state government, the state and the leaders,” he said.

Taib said his attention has recently been drawn to allegations online in a disreputable website that claims the Swiss authority may investigate him and the nature and sources of assets belonging to him located in Switzerland.

“The allegations by BMF have since been used by local politicians to advance their own political agenda against me and the state government that I lead, once again with a strong mandate from the people during the last state election.

“As head of the state government and a member of the legislature, in keeping with the parliamentary practice and tradition, I am accountable to this august House.

“Therefore, it is only proper and right for me to make a personal statement to this August house in accordance of Standing Order 22 on the allegations by BMF, a foreign NGO not at all accountable to the people of Sarawak,” he said.

    Who dares to challenge me now Taib is saying? Told you all that I dont have Swiss bank and you all still believe BMF. This is the job of people who dont have power but they themselves want power. Taib is telling everyone dont cross the line. Seems next Francis Siah will jump on him and say Aug13 you watch we will demonstrate.

    The long delay of MACC probe has given ample time for Taib to transfer all his wealth and properties to his family members and relatives even overseas. A fool too knows what to do when he is at risk. but not MACC.

    This wayang kulit will end up with false and baseless allegations, bet the last dollar and mark my words.

    Who in their right mind would ” hide ” their funds in Switzerland? The Swiss Financial institutions has been under so much highlight and forced disclosures since after WW 2, no one who seriously wants to hide funds would even think about Zurich anymore. Only in Hollywood and movies, people still talk about Switzerland as a place to bank money “anonymously”. Hong Kong, Bermuda, British Jersey Islands, Isle of Man, Labuan and Brunei are some of the safest and most discreet places you can move money around without threat of trace or trail. Switzerland has been out of favour since the late 1940’s. You must be crazy to think Taib would use Switzerland of all places. Which country do you think Al Queda route their moneys through? You think Taib is less smart than them?
