Police report against Dr M for 'causing economic woes'

A salesman has accused former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s past and present actions for having caused Malaysia to suffer from economic problems.

Wee Fwen Szuh, 32, from Gombak, Selangor made the allegations in a police report at the Gombak district police headquarters at 11.12am yesterday.

The report starts off by saying that Wee represents a group of concerned citizens who wants the police to investigate Mahathir for “merosakan dan menjahanamkan (spoiling and destroying)” the economy.

Wee states in his report that Mahathir did so by approving bailouts for Pewaja Steel for RM13 billion, a RM2 billion bailout for a shipping consortium owned by his relative and bailing out Malaysian Airlines.

Enriching son

Wee also accused Mahathir of enriching his second eldest son Mokhzani. He claimed in the report that Mokhzani is one of the top 10 richest individuals in Malaysia. “Dr Mahathir has also made sweeping statements against Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to the point that the economy is now affected,” he added.

According to Wee, the issues which Mahathir had raised were Abdullah’s involvement in the ‘Oil-for-food’ scandal and campaigning against UMNO and Barisan Nasional. “(Mahathir) made statements that the people should reject UMNO and Barisan though he was campaigning for his son Murkhriz. His actions has caused uneasiness among Malaysians,” he added.

Malaysiakini had obtained a copy of the report.
