"We are not told anything about the mechanism that were involved," said the former founding president of Transparency International Malaysia.
The revelation of assets by the Selangor state government on its official website is limited to transactions from March 24, 2008, when the state assemblypersons took office until at present.
Apart from their official income and liabilities, no other information, for example bank savings, interest in private companies or shares is revealed.
Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim explained that the state is unable to provide security to the excos and their family. There is also no insurance policy to this effect.
This drew flak from former BN Selangor exco Tang See Hang, who described the move a political gimmick by Pakatan Rakyat.
"The information should be more detailed. Why are they holding back? They should reveal everything if they are to declare their assets," Tang told malaysiakini when contacted.
