WE in Gerak are deeply concerned about the recent resignation of respected scholar Dr Edmund Terence Gomez from the MACC advisory panel. 

This and his revelations about possible conflicts of interest in MACC require an immediate response from the parties concerned and an open and independent investigation led by a bipartisan parliamentary committee.

Unfortunately, both have not been forthcoming in the week or so after Gomez publicly outlined the background to his resignation. 

Instead, we have witnessed defensive, deflective statements being reported in the media, contradicting Gomez and seemingly attacking him for his exposé. 

More despicably, paid “cyber troopers” have attempted to twist Gomez’s concerns into a racial issue. Some contemptible old habits from a politically perverted playbook evidently die hard.

But let us not be distracted by such vile antics. We in Gerak can attest to the fact that Gomez – one of Malaysia’s top political economists – is an academic of impeccable character. He does not make baseless accusations. His entire distinguished career bears testament to his unquestionable integrity. 

Gerak reiterates that all academics are expected to contribute to the improvement of society. This does not mean just using our knowledge to advance society in a narrow sense.  We also need to be the conscience of society, analyse and  criticise wrongdoing, speak truth to power, and propose changes. 

This is what Gomez has done. He is carrying out his duties as an academic and as a public intellectual. He has done this in an open manner, not like conniving individuals and parties acting surreptitiously away from the public gaze and for their selfish interests.

The events prior to and after Gomez’s resignation have been openly brought up and reported elsewhere. It is about publicly alleged impropriety and conflict of interest by MACC chief commissioner Azam Baki.  

Indeed, it has been reported that on December 14, Sungai Buloh MP Sivarasa Rasiah had filed an urgent motion for the Dewan Rakyat to discuss Azam’s alleged ownership of close to two million shares in a company. (NST Online, December 28, 2021).

These are serious developments that must be thoroughly investigated. Instead, the top guns on the MACC advisory panel appear to have gone the other way, insisting that they never received Gomez’s emails urging them to investigate the allegations against Azam. 

Surely it doesn’t really matter whether they received Gomez’s emails? Surely even without the emails, they would have been aware of the allegations and, as leading members of a panel advising the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), a bulb would have lit up in their heads, alerting them to do what they are supposed to do as leaders of such a panel?

Claims that they did not receive any alert or request from Gomez really means nothing in the overall scheme of things. If they are not willing to respond, we in Gerak believe that Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob must do so as the MACC falls under the purview of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
