What Samy Vellu doesn’t want you to know
Is this it, one may ask?
At least, when one previews these documents, one will wonder why the government signed such a stupid deal. Since when has thinking badly of the government been such a big deal? Why invoke the Officials Secrets Act for all such contracts?
Is it because Litrak’s 2006 annual report recorded a nett profit of RM80 million, an increase of 43% from its nett profit at RM56 million in year 2005.
Or that in the financial year ending March 31, 2006, Litrak had set a new record after collecting RM243 million revenue compared to RM227 million the previous year before?
Or is it a case of the subtleties and sophistication of Malaysian corruption, gleaned from the very pages of the agreement?
Three youth groups offered a hypothesis.
“With these documents, they can (for example) incite a riot and burn toll booths.
“This becomes a very bad situation for the country”
Perhaps those in Sekretariat Melayu Muda would fathom the thought of rioting and burning tolls after reading the agreement. After all, the modus operandi is goin amok and waving the keris in the air.
Reasonable people don’t. At worse, they won’t vote for the charades of Samy and his gang during the next elections.
