Bahri Mohamad Zin was the senior officer in Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) who talks so much.

He talks as much as a politician does, which led many to suspect he was going to retire from the MACC and contest the next general election (GE14) on a Pakatan Harapan ticket.

True enough, he did retire, but whether he is going to contest in GE14 as a Pakatan Harapan candidate is left to be seen.

Anyway, Bahri did not retire so that he can contest in GE14.

He retired because he got caught abusing his power when his brother-in-law’s widow from his second wife lodged two police reports against him.

In short, he got caught with his pants down and had to ‘retire early’ or else go to jail for a number of years.

The whole incident revolves around RM100 million in assets which Bahri parked under Muhamad Zamly Abdullah, his brother-in-law from his second wife, Noor Haslina Abdullah.

Zamly died and the widow Noraihan Che Ali refuses to hand over those RM100 million worth of assets.

So Bahri used the MACC to raid Noraihan’s house to confiscate all the documents related to the RM100 million assets.

Bahri used to be a most talkative MACC officer who had so much to say.

Talkative

He was talking more than Tony Pua and Rafizi Ramli combined and we all know how talkative those two Pakatuns are.

Tony Pua and Rafizi Ramli suffer from verbal diarrhoea or what the Malays would call mulut lazer.

They talk so much that they contradict themselves and talk themselves into a corner and eventually got arrested and charged for saying what they should not have said.

Tony Pua and Rafizi Ramli ended up saying the wrong thing once too many times so they eventually clammed up.

So Bahri took over and started talking like nobody’s business about this, that and the other.

He is a pious Muslim.

He is just doing all this for Allah.

His conscience cannot allow him to keep quiet.

He is retiring from the MACC because of principles and because his conscience will not allow him to continue serving the MACC.

Now we find out that he was asked to go because he was caught with his pants down and if he does not go then the MACC will have to take action against him.

In other words, go quietly and quickly and the MACC will sweep everything under the carpet and pretend that nothing has happened.

Hmm…does that not make the MACC an accomplice or collaborator to Bahri’s crime?

Those who hide a crime are equally guilty of the crime.

You become an accessory after the fact (if you are not already an accessory to the crime).

Noraihan Che Ali press conference on Bahri held at Grand Dorsett Hotel in Subang Jaya on Friday Jan 20, 2017.

Kit Siang’s silence is deafening

Anyway, in 2015 Bahri was transferred out of the MACC and Lim Kit Siang raised hell.

Now that it has been revealed that Bahri is a crook, Kit Siang is keeping very quiet and has not uttered a single word. Why is Kit Siang not saying anything any longer like back in 2015?

In 2015 Kit Siang was defending Bahri like there was no tomorrow.

When Bahri announced he was leaving the MACC and was taking early retirement because of his conscience and because of Allah, everyone sang his praises and called him a towering Malaysian who should be given a Pakatan Harapan seat to contest in the next general election.

Now, suddenly, everyone is very quiet.

No one is saying anything.

Kit Siang who wrote 5,000 words in his last three blog postings about Joseph Goebbels does not even have one word to say about Bahri.

Bahri disappears into thin air

Bahri himself who usually talks so much has gone underground and is keeping way below the radar.

Come on, Bahri, speak up!

What do you have to say about the RM100 million and the raid you conducted on Noraihan’s house?

In the first place, tell us whether that RM100 million belongs to you or to your brother-in-law.

If it belongs to you then where did you get that RM100 million and why hide it under your brother-in-law’s name?

If it does not belong to you then it is harta anak yatim (an orphan’s assets).

So why are you trying to steal it?

In Islam, stealing harta anak yatim is very serious crime.

Even people with no principles and little ethics would stop short of stealing harta anak yatim.

But then, if it is not harta anak yatim and the RM100 million belongs to you, then you have further explanations to do.

Lim Kit Siang wrote some 5,000 words about Goebbels in his last three blog posting, but not a single word on alleged Bahri's RM100 million scandal.

Meanwhile, let us see whether Kit Siang still has anything to say in Bahri’s defence like back in 2015.

Or has Kit Siang dumped Bahri for good?

Knowing Kit Siang, if you are no longer of any use to him he would not touch you with a ten-foot pole. – Malaysia Today
