KUALA TERENGGANU: At least three former state executive councillors and senior officials from the state Public Works Department will be among those to be summoned by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to facilitate investigations into the Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin roof collapse.
A source said the former exco members could provide crucial information on the probe into the June 2 mishap.
The source said that documents involving the selection of the contractor responsible for work at the RM300mil stadium and installation of the roof would be obtained from those concerned.
“We have identified the names of a few key individuals to aid our investigations,’’ said the source, who declined to reveal who the former exco members and individuals were.
The three exco members responsible for ensuring the stadium’s completion in time for the Malaysian Games (Sukma) 2008 were Datuk Wan Hisham Wan Salleh (Infrastructure and Public Amenities), Datuk Din Adam (Youth and Sports) and Datuk Rosol Wahid (Islam Hadhari and Welfare).
Din and Rosol are still serving as assemblymen.
The three had served under previous Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.
Yesterday, they expressed their preparedness to help with the MACC probe.
“Every single transaction and our respective roles were all recorded in detail. We have nothing to hide,’’ said Din, who is the Bukit Besi assemblyman.
Wan Hisham also said he was prepared to be investigated.
“MACC is doing its job and we will assist in every possible way,’’ he pledged.
“So far, I have not been contacted by the MACC. If they do, I will be there (at MACC office here) the next minute.”
Rosol, who is the Ajil assemblyman and former state Umno secretary, refuted talk that he had influenced the state tender committee chaired by State Secretary Datuk Mokthar Nong on selecting the roof contractor.
“I realised recently that certain quarters with malicious intentions were linking me with the mishap in such a way,’’ he said.
“As such, I actually welcome the probe.’’
The Terengganu Government has heeded the call by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin not to set up a separate panel to investigate the mishap.
Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said told reporters that the state government would not intervene in the probe to be conducted by the state PWD.
