Where is the whole picture The Star? Why the title MACC to quiz Khir ? I think this is another cover up or sandiwara. Why not put the title of the article, “The Neighbour of MACC Head, Khir Toyo to be questioned?”. It would be more interesting right ?

MACC to quiz Khir
By LOURDES CHARLES
SHAH ALAM: Former Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo has been asked to be present at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission office here to assist in investigations related to the purchase of his multi-million ringgit palatial home.
It is learnt that the commission wants to query Dr Khir as the MACC is said to have obtained an independent evaluation report on the cost of the controversial mansion in Section 7 here.
Sources said the commission had obtained at least two evaluation reports with one estimating the mansion to be about RM5mil.
They said the commission did not close its investigations into Dr Khir’s home as it was waiting for the independent reports as well as make discreet inquiries.
MACC started investigating the former MB following allegations made in a blog, as well as that by DAP Sekinchan assemblyman Ng Swee Lim, who claimed the palatial mansion was worth about RM24mil.
The sources also said that, besides the investigations into the mansion, the commission was expected to quiz Dr Khir about the accounts of Balkis (Wives of Selangor State Assemblymen and MPs Charity and Welfare Organi-sation).
They said it had been conducting inquiries and decided they needed Dr Khir to assist in investigations.
Dr Khir has been alleged to have abused funds belonging to Balkis of which his wife was the head before it was dissolved after the March 8 general elections last year.
