KUCHING: Tan Sri Leo Moggie, the former president of the deregistered Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak has strongly denied that he was behind an alleged secret pact between SNAP and Barisan Nasional.

The former Energy, Communications and Multimedia Minister said he had not been involved in any political activity since quitting politics in 2004.

“I am completely out of politics. I retired from politics many years ago and I remain retired from active politics,” the Tenaga Nasional Berhad chairman told reporters before attending the Dayak Chamber of Commerce and Industry annual general meeting here Saturday.

Moggie, who was an icon of Dayak politics, was asked to comment on the claim by the “Sarawak Report” blog that he reached out to SNAP and arranged a secret deal between the party and Barisan.

The MP for Kanowit from 1974 to 1999 said: “After my retirement, I find that there is actually more to life than politics.”

Moggie abruptly announced his resignation as PBDS president in 2003. His departure split the party into two camps and resulted in its de-registration. -- Bernama
