Tun M’s Call for Stringent Anti-Corruption Measures: Seizure of ‘Suspicious’ Assets Advocated

In a bold step for anti-corruption measures, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has asserted the need for decisive action, advocating for the confiscation of assets deemed “suspicious” among individuals holding the prestigious title of “Tun.” The former prime minister’s call for rigorous measures includes an insistence on investigations into the source of wealth for those bearing the honorific title, with a recommendation for immediate property seizures if explanations fall short.

Dr Mahathir’s Unyielding Stand

Expressing his unwavering stance, Dr Mahathir conveyed through a Facebook post on Wednesday (Dec 27) that a mere suspicion of financial misdeeds should be grounds for investigation and action. Going a step further, he proposed that individuals with the title “Tun” should not only undergo scrutiny but should also face detention until they disclose the origins of their financial resources.

“The Tuns should not only be investigated. They should also be remanded until they reveal the source of their money. If they don’t reveal, it must be because they are hiding,” he asserted.

Combatting Corruption at All Levels

Dr Mahathir underscored the imperative need to eliminate corruption across all echelons of society. He emphasized that even first-time offenders must confront the full force of the rule of law. Addressing the role of the Attorney General (AG), Dr Mahathir maintained that if accusations are perceived as politically motivated, the AG has the authority to halt prosecution, with the return of passports being a consequential measure.

Supremacy of the Law in Malaysia

In his concluding remarks, Dr Mahathir stressed the paramount importance of adhering to the law in Malaysia. Regardless of one’s status or position, he insisted that everyone must abide by the law. The former prime minister’s call for stringent anti-corruption measures echoes the ongoing commitment to fostering transparency and accountability within the country.
