MACC had proof of DAP’s innocence

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has been accused of possibly losing certain receipts that could prove that DAP did not siphon off state government funds.
The allegation was made by lawyer Lim Lip Eng today outside the Royal Commission of Inquiry investigating Teoh Beng Hock's death. However, Lim today claimed that those receipts had already been given to MACC.
"I just want to tell the truth. On Sept 14, 2009, MACC Putrajaya, through my law firm, had already seized (received) all the original receipts," Lim said.
Lim, the DAP Segambut MP, said that MACC had either misplaced the receipts or its lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah "did not do his homework". "MACC should be the one producing those receipts,' he added.
Lim was today present to represent his client Lee Wye Wing, a businessman who was engaged as contractor for several projects by Seri Kembangan state assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah (Teoh's boss).
When Lee took the stand yesterday, Shafee alleged that Lee has been raising funds for DAP through Ean Yong's projects. Shafee asked the RCI to order Lee to produce certain receipts to prove that DAP Serdang Aman had paid out advances to contractors before being later reimbursed. The commission, however, turned down Shafee's application, saying that the MACC should not “make use of the commission”.
