GEORGE TOWN: A PAS Youth leader has lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) against former finance minister Lim Guan Eng and former attorney general Tan Sri Tommy Thomas for alleged abuse of power.

State deputy PAS Youth leader Abdul Razib Abdul Rahim said he made the report alleging that Guan Eng and Thomas had abused their positions by lifting a freeze on the bank accounts of tycoon Tan Sri Lim Soon Peng.

“I urge MACC to look into a letter allegedly written by Thomas to unfreeze the account of Soon Peng upon the request of Guan Eng,” Abdul Razib told reporters outside the state MACC headquarters in Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah here yesterday.

In a statement he read out to the press, Abdul Razib said he believed that Thomas, who allegedly had a direct or indirect interest, had used his office and influence to unfreeze Soon Peng’s account although MACC had said that Soon Peng had failed to return about RM4mil to the government.

Razib claimed that he had seen the letter by Thomas to Guan Eng on the Facebook account of one “Peniup Wisel Siber” on June 2.

He urged MACC to investigate the allegations against Guan Eng and Thomas under the MACC Act 2009 or any other law which provided for it.
