Day of shame for Malaysia February 13, 2008

Tuesday was a day of shame for the nation.

After 50 years under Bebal Nasional (BN), this is what we have to show to the world? How much more are we to sit back and endure this travesty?

So much for independence of the judiciary. What is the connection between Mokhtar Sidin and Lingam? Were bribes, gifts, flowers, cakes (more below) or cash part of the deal? Who else is implicated?

In her statutory declaration, GN Jayanthi, 45, said she had stayed until 3am in Lingam’s office to draft a judgment which eventually became the landmark decision read by High Court judge Mokhtar Sidin in the Vincent Tan vs MGG Pillai defamation suit. This, she said, occurred between November and early December 1994.

Lingam was representing Tan, a business tycoon, in the RM10 million suit.

Jayanthi said she ‘vividly remembers’ how Lingam dictated a draft judgment from some handwritten notes while another staff J Sumanti typed it out.

“Lingam then corrected the pages with red ink. Sumanti then did the corrections and made a copy of the said judgment in a floppy disk that was to be given to Mokhtar Sidin.

“I later discovered the judgment written by Lingam was fully incorporated as the official judgment by the said judge,” she said.(Malaysiakini, 12 Feb 2008)

Now, we’d like to know since when the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) hands out bribes?? No wonder they kept threatening Anwar Ibrahim, Sivarasa Rasiah and Sim Tze Tsim. Further note:- Why did the Royal Malaysian Police Force place their officers outside Anwar’s office for weeks? What is their role in all these?

Meanwhile, Jayanthi also revealed that the Anti-Corruption Agency had informed her in 1998 that the corruption investigation concerning Lingam was closed because ‘too many high profile officials were involved’.

She was also given RM3,000 by ACA which she accepted.(Malaysiakini, 12 Feb 2008)

And perjury? Didn’t Eusoff Chin and Lingam say they ‘bumped’ into each other in New Zealand?

Jayanthi revealed that she had booked the flight tickets for both Lingam and former chief justice Eusoff Chin for their infamous New Zealand holiday in late 1994.

She said she had planned the holiday based on handwritten itineraries from the tour agencies acting for them. (Malaysiakini, 12 Feb 2008)

Apparently, Haidar “The Seal” Noor was none too please with the developments of the hearings. Why isn’t the commission remotely troubled by evidence of corruption?

Throughout the proceedings, commission chairperson Haidar Mohd Noor kept interrupting Muhammad Shafee from questioning Jayanthi on receipts of flowers and cakes allegedly sent by Lingam to various judges which was organised by the former secretary.

We are not concerned with corruption. We want to see which parties are involved and we are only investigating into the closeness of the lawyer apparently brokering appointments with judges,” said Haidar. (Malaysiakini, 12 Feb 2008)

All those who lost high-profile criminal and civil suits should immediate file for judicial review. I am pleased that at long last, the late MGG Pillai is finally vindicated.

This country has gone to the dogs.
Alas, the dogs are rabies-infected, lice-infested mongrels with titles like tun, tan sri, datuk sri, datuk, etc.

I have been perusing some blogs, where some bloggers are accusing Anwar Ibrahim of exploiting this “Linggamtape” for his(Anwar’s) political mileage. I posted whether if these tapes were entrusted to them, are they wiling to undertake them?

I wish I am not a Malaysian or at least not here now. I am not a skilled worker/professional, do you know how to get a PR at UK?

“We are not concerned with corruption. We want to see which parties are involved and we are only investigating into the closeness of the lawyer apparently brokering appointments with judges,” said Haidar.

So, Haidar, do you mean we should close one eye (or both eyes) on corruption matter? Yes or No.

I just give you the benefit of doubt in answering this question as I do not want to prejudge your answer. Just tell me, Yes or No.

If not for Anwar’s exposure of the tape the Judiciary would have sunk deeper into a bottomless pit. Which means you and I can go to court and never win a case no matter the evidence in your favour.
We should thank Anwar.
hat kickdefella talks cock from Kelantan. Yes, he is the one to condemn Anwar for revealing the tape.
Is exposing Evil wrong?

Abdullah, who is Barisan Nasional chairman, also said there would be no compromise in picking only clean candidates.

“I will get a report from the ACA, whether they are clear or not,” he said.(The Star 13/2/08)

“I will get a report from the ACA, whether they are clear or not,” he said.(The Star 13/2/08)” – Wishuponastar

Well, it all depends on who the PM tells the ACA are in the clear! The ACA will act accordingly, then the PM tell Malaysians that these people are cleared!
What a show!
Only Malaysians are fooled!!

I would like to thank Jayanthi!! I bet you she’s in a lot of trouble now.

I wish I knew how to contact her and be supportive of her. Although she was directly involved, I respect her for coming clean now.

Thank you so much Jayanthi. I hope everyone realises that this wouldn’t have come to light if she hadn’t told the truth.

We at KLConfidential really appreciate her as we realise that she may be going through some tempting bribes, character assasinations and also death threats to her and her family.

Lingam and Eusoff caught with their knickers around their ankles!

Vince and the good old doc can perform their last rodeo around the clowns so they won’t feel naked and neglected like our judiciary.
