On July 15, Nibong Tebal DAP division chief Teh Hock Yong lodged four reports with the MACC against Tan for alleged abuse of power, misappropriation of allocation and using the state logo on a letter to raise RM5,000 for a Chinese temple.
Tan, the Jawi assemblyman, did not only cooperate with the anti-corruption investigators but he also submitted an undated resignation letter to the Penang chief minister to be executed if he was found guilty.
He has been cleared of abuse of power allegations as investigations by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) found that there was no evidence to implicate him.
Tan said he had received a letter from Penang MACC director Latifah Mad Yatim, dated July 23, stating that the case had been closed.
All elected representatives currently being investigated by the MACC should do the same thing. Will Khir Toyo lead the way for BN?
