Khalid suggests bloggers come forward with corruption allegations

SHAH ALAM: Those with information on corruption should show a sense of responsibility by reporting the matter to the authorities, and not just exposing it through blogs, said Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

He said the state government welcomed such reports to prove the validity of the allegations of corruption.

"If there is corruption, the public should not just publish these activities in blogs but must take the matter to authorities.

"I encourage their efforts, but sometimes, stories in blogs are not always 100 percent true," he said in a news conference after launching the 2009 Selangor Book Festival here today (25 July).

Abdul Khalid was asked to comment on an allegation in a blog which linked a Selangor exco member to corruption activities, and to circumstances surrounding the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock.

The blog at http://www.t4tbh.blogspot.com yesterday claimed that the activities involved more than 300 small projects worth hundreds of thousands of ringgit, in the state exco member's area. (Bernama)
