Dirty filthy ‘justice’ September 19, 2007

19 Sept 2007
This video recording implicates the highest office of judiciary in a conspiracy to pervert the cause of justice through the machinations of a lawyer tainted with a scandalous history involving questionable dealings and conduct that brings disrepute to the legal and judicial professions.

In 1994, lawyer VK Lingham was photographed with the then Chief Justice Tun Eusoffe Chin holidaying in New Zealand under circumstances that would give rise to the inference of a serious breach of professional conduct on part of the lawyer and even more serious implications of unethical conduct on the part of the Chief Justice. Lingham was also implicated in the PricewaterhouseCoopers report which was tabled to Parliament following a thorough audit investigation of the Perwaja Steel scandal involving the loss of billions of ringgit of taxpayers’ money.

In this video, Lingham was seen and heard to be talking to the current Chief Justice of the Federal Court, Tun Ahmad Fairuz Abdul Halim wherein my name, among others, is specifically mentioned.

It is mentioned in the context of a conspiracy to influence the appointment of senior judges and pervert the cause of justice. In view of this, we have reason to believe that whatever has transpired in this exchange in 2002 had some bearing on the outcomes in a number of judicial proceedings, including mine.

The video also implicates Vincent Tan and Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor. The former is a businessman and gaming tycoon who was allegedly at the center of a scandal involving the abuse of the judicial process now known as the Ayer Molek case. The latter is a prominent Umno leader and a member of the Cabinet who was involved in the political conspiracy to remove me in 1998.

Such a scandalous expose, as indeed this video really is, only serves to corroborate our allegations of a political conspiracy of the highest level and corruption of the highest judicial office, seriously bringing into question the impartiality of judicial proceedings involving the affected parties. This is matter of utmost public importance and we demand the setting up of an Independent Tribunal to investigate this shameful and scandalous episode.

In this regard, we make a special appeal to the conference of rulers to continue to play their constitutionally entrenched role in safeguarding the rights of the people by exercising their discretionary powers in all matters within their jurisdiction.

With this proof..now lets hear what PM have to say.
Really sick of our country’s dirty filthy politics.
Yes…it is now up to the People’s Power to correct things.
If none….lets live in shame for our children.

“…we demand the setting up of an Independent Tribunal to investigate this shameful and scandalous episode.”

Is there any reason today to think that anything has changed since then?

.

The sitting pretty cj on the verge of his retirement, is now seeking and resorting to religion to absolve his sins – corrupt, incompetence and perverted.

He is probably a very low IQ moron and a brazen one to have the audacity to even broach on the subject of changing the constitution.
Worst is the fact that there are “willing people” ever ready to lend him their ears. How stupid can one get?

Not surprising in Malaysia’s context. Just shout the verses of the religion and everyone will follow the damned even into cesspool.

hang on a minute, people… we still cant jump to conclusions on the following critical facts:

1. that the lawyer was vk lingam.
only those who know him well would b able to confirm that identity, but i guess it’s pretty obvious, he cant run away with that.

2. that the phone conversation was a ‘real’ one.
mr vk said he was doing things ‘not for our self-interest, but for the country’, so there’s nothing to stop him from doing a ’self-sacrifice for the country’ again, by coming out to say that actually, people, i was just practising reading the lines of a ’satire play’ to entertain guests in tun dzaiddin’s birthday bash that year… or i was just talking to myself!!

yes, i could b a lunatic sometimes. but call me whatever name u want, i CATEGORICALLY DENY that the person on the other line was ahmad fairuz, or ANY judge for that matter!!

blow meh?!?!

so, we cant really jump to conclusion that ahmad fairuz was ‘implicated’, n then call for judicial reform, revamp, revolution this n that, based on this video clip.

BUT i know of a way to to get the chief justice to step down – TRUTH OR DARE.

pkr should come out n say that “for your info (ahmad fairuz please pay special attention!!), we HAVE ANOTHER CLIP/audio recording of the person talking ON THE OTHER SIDE of the phone call… so, u better resign NOW!!”

then, the chief justice would have to seriously consider resigning ‘on health reasons’ immediately, bcos he would have no way of confirming whether someone had managed to film him on the other end, more than 5 years ago… (hell, he might not even remember where da fuck he was during that conversation!!)

or, he’ll play DARE – take a final gamble, betting that no such video/audio for ‘the other side’ exists. bcos IF indeed it exists, he’ll still have to resign n face the SAME charges n music LATER, ANYWAY – so why do it NOW??? wait n see lar…

so, people, don’t get over excited just yet, like the bar council, (who has issued a statement jumping to many conclusions, impliedly. i think they’ll get into HELL LOT OF PROBLEMS if they go on to make any statement making more accusatory assumptions. we might end up having the whole bar council hauled up before the court for contempt!!! n wouldn’t that b a PERFECT PRETEXT for getting rid of u common-law-out-of-your-mind-kafirs, or at least to abolish the bar council altogether??)

WATCH YOUR MOUTHS, people. u all should realise that EVEN IF this was true (i think it was), the government n the agong would NOT want to admit that such scandals really took place. they would do everything to downplay/eradicate ANY trace of wrongdoing if possible, so that they can protect the image (however despised by now) of the malaysian judiciary. they would prefer to let the chief justice go ‘quietly’ into his ‘retirement’, instead of having to take the drastic n shameful step of firing him, the great Champion of syariah-law-replacing-common-law.

hehe…. god bless u, tun!! (n your family – i mean, your ‘brothers’ in-law (those u have appointed to the benches… of your dinner table)!!!

;P

7. ivan yang - September 20, 2007

Shout, scream call for whatever commission, tribunals to investigate but i think our PM will continue with his elegant silence… so what next? Huh!!!

8. wits0 - September 20, 2007

A normal person with a viable IQ knows enough to separate reason from dogmas. Self-evident observation, oA. His profession demands sound reasoning, not the sentimentality of his personal and partisan ideology. He has none of the first ; the second is a Systemic national disease.

Monty,i cant log in susan’s blog.

10. monsterball - September 20, 2007

Dear Liz…Susan’s blog is closed and rumors has it…she is working for you…very busy …no time to blog …is that true?…hahahahaha
Another rumor is …she is getting married.
Sorry to post out of the main topic…but people must know the truths.
Do you have the right reason/reasons?
She shut off her HPs…no answer.

EW: Dear Monty, I’m afraid there’s no basis to the first rumour i.e. working for me – if only! And I don’t ask people questions about their private lives🙂

Not Justice My Foot!

But Justice My Lingam!

I rather have “Poa Cheen Thien” That is ‘Justice Poa’ my friends.

13. max - September 20, 2007

That’s the reason why many cases were bias and prejudiced. We can’t just say, “Don’t vote BN/UMNO”. A lot of wrongs have to be made right. Just too many Datuk Z or Datuk K around bcos the system protects them. The only way is to have a referendum. Change the political scenerio. But UMNO will use whatever resources they have to create havoc and anarchy to protect their positions and the victims will be the Chinese. Remember Dr M wanted to try it before the police used Ops Lallang. Tun R did it in 1969.

Dear Eli,

How are you doing?

A reminder from Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ) about an important day- 28th September is the International Right to Know Day. The aim of the Right to Know Day is to raise awareness of every individual of their right of access to public information: the right to know how elected officials are exercising power and how taxpayers’ money is being spent.

We hope that you will participate in this global event to raise awareness among your audience, by giving the occasion a noticeable visibility. Suggestions for topics you can bring up in your blog on 28th September-

1. Freedom of Information Act vs. Official Secrets Act. – There are now 69 nations which legally allow access to classified information. The latest entry into the league is China, who agreed to pass a law partly modeled after the FOIA. More info about FOIA in http://www.freedominfo.org/.

2. Media freedom issue- media blackout, media bias etc – they essentially mean that the reader does not have free and fair access to information. The Terengganu shooting is an example.

For your information, CIJ will be leafleting with other NGOs, such as the Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA, Empower, BERSIH on 28th September at Masjid Jamek and Putrajaya.

Thanks

Wai Fong
CIJ
