The article says that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has set up a multi-agency task force to investigate allegations of graft against Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.
The video, Inside Malaysia's Shadow State, released on You Tube by London-based non-governmental organization Global Witness is being used as the focus of the corruption case. This video went viral after it was released on March 18. I saw the video about that time.
I was flabbergasted!
The video featured recorded conversations between Taib's cousins and two lawyers on matters ranging from illegal means to circumvent the operations of Malaysian laws to allegations of kickbacks to high officials within the state administration.
MACC said that it had taken statements from more than 20 people believed to be involved in the case or mentioned in the You Tube video which had alleged corrupt dealings in the state implicating the chief minister.
If you haven't seen the video, here it is.
