Received a message from a friend who knows Johor more than me saying that I got this one wrong.
He said the investigations have been shelved.
I don't really want to believe him.
After all, the MACC had been ordered by the Sultan of Johor to eradicate corruption in the state.
Hopefully I'm right and my friend is wrong.
It's about 3.15am as I start writing this.
I'm suffering from sleeping disorder because something is wrong with my heart....never mind...it's too stupid for me to tell you all what's wrong with my heart.
Rather then being awake thinking of negative thoughts, I thought I may as well write this short post.
Well, it has been a few days since I wrote my last one anyway.
Talking about me being sleepless, I heard there are quite a number of people in Johor who are now having sleepless nights too.
However, they are not really suffering from sleeping disorder like me.
They can't sleep peacefully because apparently the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission is closing in on them.
This is about the continuing story of
Cleaning up Kota Iskandar
Cleaning up Kota Iskandar - Part 2
My sources said the operation is indeed ongoing and MACC is currently cornering at least three "big fishes" and quite a number of smaller ones.
The three big ones are two state assemblymen, one of whom is a high ranking office holder in Kota Iskandar, and the third, who is also a politician, holds a very powerful post in the state administration.
They were said to be very rich.
For example, the assemblyman who holds no position in Kota Iskandar was believed to have at least two palatial homes, eight luxury cars and children who own several plots of land each and maximum Amanah Saham Bumiputera accounts.
The other two "big fishes" were believed to have even more than that.
I was told they are all running for cover now but I guess it's going to be hard for them to hide after the recent edict by Sultan of Johor supporting MACC's effort to crack down on corruption in the state.
I think the three guys are all likely awake as I'm writing this despite the early morning hour.
How to sleep when the MACC people may knock on the door at any time and drag them away, isn't it?
Well, the smaller two bit players are probably suffering from the same problem too.
I was told that some of them have started to hide their loot.
One or two were even said to have given their Rolex watches to friends for safekeeping.

Surely scary, I guess.
How to sleep easy like that?
Those who are corrupt are not likely able to sleep peacefully, okay.
Anyway, I hope the MACC people will keep on pushing themselves so that my home state could be cleaned up.
