It sure was explosive, what was revealed by Wee Choo Keong, the expelled-MP of Bukit Bintang, that is. His pre -Press Conference sms to us was that the Lingam tape is child's play compared to what he had to reveal this morning at 11.20am. The small conference room of the MDP had filled up by 10.45am with TV crews, members of the press and 7 socio-political bloggers.
In welcoming the press, Mr Wee made reference to the assurance by Nazri's assertion during the Al Jazera's recent 101 East program that "there is press freedom in Malaysia and the press is free to publish what they like." He said that this sentiment was endorsed by the SIL during the said program. Wee's press statement called on "Editors, from now on fear not, just publish all matters of public interests and the government will protect you."
It is common knowledge that as far back as 1988, the Judiciary was beginnning its slide into a messy state. This messiness was kick-started with the controversial dismissal of then Lord President, Tun Salleh Abas. Despite this, Wee, began to probe the malpractices of Tan Sri Loy Hean Heong's corporate empire. When Wee finally lodged a police report in 1993, the corporate crook obtained an ex-parte injunction that "restrained Wee from printing, publishing, distributing and circulating any allegation against MBf Finance Bhd and Mbf Holdings Bhd or any ot their respective subsidiaries or affiliates (167 in total) or any of their officers." It became a common practice in the Judiciary, from thence on to impose Gag Orders to protect the "special rights" of selected "specials",
Wee's press conference would definitely bring down the Titanic Judiciary! Wee produced to all present a police report by none other than THIRUNAMA KARASU a/l KANDAR VELLUPILLAI, the brother of VK Lingam. It was so potent that Karasu feared for his life and has gone into hiding. He sought out Wee and handed him a copy of his police report made in Kelana Jaya on 19.3.07. It is my take that since the report the police did not act, Karasu himself had to act. My surmise, again, is that he chose Wee because Wee's name was mentioned in the infamous tape. WILL THE AUTHORITIES ACT? THE AG DEPARTMENT? THE BAR COUNCIL? THE EXECUTIVE? THE POLICE? I pray they will! I also hope all our borders will be closed to ensure that those named will not creep away in some moonless night.
Whilst money changed hands, even lady's leather handbags and cell phones were also the prefered items of some members of the Bench. HOW LOW HAVE THEY DESCENDED FROM THAT LOFTY BENCH? The contents of the police report made intriguing reading and the luminaries mentioned can just about blind any decent citizens. I just like to mention two names that appeared: Mokhtar Sidin and Low Hop Bin, both Court of Appeal Judges. These are the two that my readers have urged me to investigate. I am thrilled that these two got special mention in Karasu's police report. That is a relief. Let justice run its course.
But before I sign off I'd like to feature a juicy morsel found in the report, Upon a warning that the ACA was on his tail, the action-oriented VK Lingam well-oiled machinery went to work: Money was transfered out. I quote verbatime from the roport:
"Before the ACA can come to my brother office Dato V Knalingam told me, Chinmayadevi (my sister) and Francis Chee Khoon to withdraw large sums of money from Oriental Bank, Jalan Sultan Ismail under the account of Dato V Kanagalingam. Dato V Kanagalingam also told me to take 5 nos bank draft each amounting to 60,000.00 pounds. I also was told by my brother Dato V Kanalingam to open a account under my name in Public Bank and bank in Rm275,000.00 which I did. Mr Francis Kok Chee Khoon also withdraw a large sum of money which he put in a black bag and later bank into his account. My sister Chinmayadevi also withdraw a large sum and followed Mr Francis Kok Chee Khoon. I did not know what my sister Chinmayadevi did with the money.
Later the five bank bank drafts of 60,000.00 pounds each was bank in to the account of the following person in London. This people followed Dato V Kanalingam to London before going to USA Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
1) Mr K Suppiah 60,000.00 pounds was bank into his account in London.
2) Datin Ghanajothi 60,000.00 pounds were bank into her account in London.
3) Mr Rajendra Vellupillai 60,000.00 pound was bank into his account in London
4) Thirunama Karasu Vellupillai 60,000.00 pounds was put into my account in London.
5) Dato V Kanalingam 60,000.00 was put into his account in London.
6) V Kanakalasimi Rm 100,000.00 given cash at No: 28 Section 21/1 Sea Park PJ at her house.
There are of course much more interesting revelations which will become public fare.
Former Lord President Tun Suffian said: “When I am asked what I thought, my usual reply is that I wouldn’t like to be tried by today’s judges, if I am innocent.”
Goodnight good people.....tonight I will dream and in that dream a script to make a movie of this will materialise. Actors? That will be another story......and Kata Tak Nak.....no more hard on I hope and Shah 101.....go and be de-constipated.
