‘Allegation of solar hybrid project shutdown reeks of ill intention’


THE CLAIMS regarding attempts to close the solar hybrid project in Sarawak are viewed as those with the bad intention of tarnishing the image of the Sarawak government.

Minister in the Chief Minister’s Office (Integrity and Ombudsman) Datuk Talip Zulpilip believes that it is the work of those with certain political agenda, who are doing it without thinking the impact it would have on the people.

“Do not expect such immoral and dishonest approach could win the heart of the people,” he said in his ministerial winding-up speech at the DUN sitting yesterday.

According to Talib, the case involving a private company, Jepak Holdings, is being handled by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and several witnesses had been called to testify.

Adding on, the Jepak assemblyman said the objective behind the accusation was to bring down the Sarawak government by creating a perception that it was corrupted.

“Truth — that is not their concern. They’re simply interested in creating a negative perception.

“Therefore, beware of the opposition’s tactics – the people must question their tricks and ‘facts’ that support their accusations,” he said.
