KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman has called on all parties to stop speculating over the massive RM120mil anti-graft investigation involving two top officers of the state Water Department. 

"This is an important investigation. Let the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Agency) do their job. 

“Stop making endless statements and giving your opinions on what transpired," he said in a statement issued here Monday. 

Musa said this case should not be played out in the media as it could jeopardise investigation. 

Instead, he said all parties concerned should extend their fullest cooperation so that investigation could be conducted in a swift manner. 

"Our focus should be on measures to improve the procurement process and overall delivery system," he added. 

Sabah Water Department director Ag Tahir Ag Talib and his deputy Teo Chee Kong were arrested last Tuesday along with two others (including Teo’s businessman brother) for investigation into alleged abuse of power, corruption and money laundering. 

Their one week remand is scheduled to end tomorrow (Tuesday) and they are expected to be brought to court for further remand.

Some 40 witnesses including families of both the director and his deputy are being questioned in connection with the water projects allegedly tendered out to family-linked companies. 

MACC had seized around RM120mil including RM53mil in cash from their homes and offices making it one of the biggest investigations by the graft busters in the country.
