Members of the public in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah woke up the past few days to thousands of banners, flyers and stickers accusing a certain Sabah Customs Department official of being corrupt, a gambler and abusing his power.
In what appears to be a guerilla campaign to “name and shame” the individual, the banners even named the officer, showed his face and had among others, the words “makan rasuah paling besar (the biggest corrupter)”.
The bannerd and stickers identified the officer as Nazrie Wahad.
Nazrie was accused of raking between RM300,000 to RM400,000 every month from Pakistani sundry shops for the sale of cigarettes and alcohol.
He was also accused of being a regular in jackpot outlets.
Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Director for Sabah, Datuk S Karunanithy said they were looking into these claims and would act accordingly.
Local police also say they were looking into this case and had opened up investigation papers to, among others, probe the matter for slander.
This follows a counter police report lodged by the Customs officer.
