Time for RCI on Mahathir Mohammad
Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (DSAI) has accused former premier and dictator, Mahathir Mohammad, of illegally enriching himself, his wife, family, cronies and sycophants
While Mahathir has denied the allegations, he has instructed his lawyers to take action against DSAI and claims that his amassed fortune is all accounted for though many Malaysians disbelieve him.
Mahathir is, according to DSAI, supposed to have illicitly acquired his wealth at a time where social media did not exist and therefore there were no watch dogs and neither were there checks and balances in place.
In working out the issue, many Malaysians believe Mahathir is guilty of corruption and misappropriation of the people’s money and want the authorities to confiscate his wealth and return it to the people.
For a number of years now social media has been swirling with rumors, speculation and allegations over how fabulously wealthy Mahathir, his family and cronies are though there is no inkling at all how these people got so filthy rich.
This is why Malaysians want an RCI or Royal Commision of Inquiry on Mahathir to be set up to establish the truth of the matter and to ensure that no stone is unturned in their investigations to get to the bottom of this matter as there is no smoke without fire.
