Poser Over Nik Aziz's Inaction Against Son-in law

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 21 (Bernama) -- A non-governmental organization today questioned why Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat did not take any action against his son-in law, Abdul Ariffahmi Abdul Rahman for alleged mismanagement for government linked company.

Pertubuhan Jaringan Melayu Malaysia, national secretary, Tengku Amalluddin Sani Raja Ahmad Sufian said, until today no action has been taken against Ariffahmi after he relinquished his post as chief executive office of Kelantan Menteri Besar Incorporated early last year.

Tengku Amalluddin sani said Nik Aziz should have taken action against Abdul Ariffahmi instead of passing the buck to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Nik Aziz should not wait for MACC  to conclude it probe, he told Bernama  here Monday.

The MACC started investigating Ariffahmi, who was appointed as CEO of the corporation on Sept 20, 2009, on issues pertaining to financial misappropriation and on a sponsored haji trip at the end of 2009.

Tengku Amalluddin Sani said as a responsible leader, Nik Aziz should take appropriate action against Ariffahmi whom he had promoted as the CEO.

"Instead Nik Aziz continues to defend his son-in-law," he said.

Abdul Ariffahmi's services was terminated by Nik Aziz following the advise of national PAS leaders and public outcry.
