Return cash, Khir's wife told

The Selangor Menteri Besar is offering an olive branch to Datin Seri Zahrah Kecik to help resolve the issue of the missing RM9.9 million.

Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim wants Datin Seri Zahara to give back the RM9.9mil, withdraw the application to dissolve the Wives of Selangor Assemblymen and MPs Welfare and Charity Organisation (Balkis) and the matter is settled.

This, according to Tan Sri Khalid, is the best offer to Datin Seri Zahrah who was the organisation's head when she and the other members decided to transfer the RM9.9 million from its coffers after Barisan Nasional lost the state during the March general election.

The group also decided to dissolve the organisation.

Khalid said his offer was the best solution to resolve the controversy.

“If not, the state will pursue the matter because the people want us to be correct. If there has been misconduct, then justice will take its course,” he told reporters yesterday.

The issue blew up when it was revealed that Balkis, lead by Zahrah, who is the wife of former Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo, transferred RM9.9mil to the Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti) three days after the state fell to Pakatan Rakyat.

This is a CBT. Even if they return back the money, they are still guilty of the offence, and will be charged in court.

Dont they know that the money belongs to the association, not to the office bearers and cant through their whims & fancy simply transfer the funds out. Why are they so stupid? This is downright cheating!

Syabas Tan Sri! These people are playing with the taxpayers' money as if it is their own.

I'm just disgusted at her attitutde, this Zahara woman, closing the account and transferring it to another under the pretext of safeguarding the fund. From whom, may I ask her.

I trust the Pakatan Rakyat with my money than with the likes of Khir's wife and her gang of thieves.

If transferring the money in this manner constitutes an illegal act, then all those responsible must be held accountable and punished accordingly to the law.

If they are wrong, then they are wrong and the wrongdoing must be dealt with in accordance with the law.

Nobody is above the law, irregardless whether you are a wife of a former MB or tha tof an ordinary man.

There shouldnt be any compromise.
