‘Jana Wibawa SSTs show links to kin of leaders’

KUALA LUMPUR: A list of Letter of Acceptance (SST) under the controversial Jana Wibawa project was found to be linked to the family members of top political leaders, says Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said.

In a parliamentary written reply, she said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was investigating cases related to issues of direct tender, including the Jana Wibawa initiative, that consisted of development and infrastructure projects.

“A total of 56 projects had received their Letter of Acceptance (SST) and the total worth of the entire projects stood at RM6.3bil.

“However, several lists of SSTs that have been issued show links to family members of the top leaders of certain political parties,” she said.

She was responding to a question from Lim Guan Eng (PH-Bagan) who asked the Prime Minister to state the total number and value of projects involved in any form of alleged abuse of power, especially direct negotiation tenders and action taken to address the issue.

Azalina added that there are several other projects that are still being investigated by the MACC.

Recently, former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had his statement recorded by the MACC.

Muhyiddin has denied he is a suspect.
