A Good about-turn

I welcome the widening of the scope of the RCI,  set up to probe procedural aspects of MACC’s mode of operation, to include the finding of the cause of death of the late TBH.

The authority has finally bowed to public pressure to do so, but it could have avoided much heartache and anger if it has included the finding of the cause of death as one of the reference points in the RCI , following the open verdict by the coroner’s court. This exposes that the authority has not really been able to gauge  pubic sentiments, and this failure of reading the pulse often leads to flip flop decision, even though the flip-flopping is not as bad as under the previous administration.

The RCI should be given a free hand to run its investigation, like in the case of the black eye incident of Anwar. As I have said so many times on this issue, no stones should be left unturned in the quest to find out who is responsible.

However, any findings and recommendations by the RCI must be followed up, in order for the public to regain their trust in future commissions of inquiry. Many people have already expressed their skepticism whether such commission would be effective, given that the Royal Commission on Police force’s recommendation of setting up of IPCMC has not been implemented.

    If there is no subsequent follow up on the findings of RCI, then it will be just another CIRCUS to parade at TENANG buy election.

    Dare we hope for truth and justice to prevail ? Is it even remotely possible ? Alas, the cynic in me says no. It is another time buying diversion ; a convenient political move by BN. Please let me be proven wrong. Just for once.

    A classic about turn during Tenang by election : Both CSL and KTK said they supported the reapplication of Segamat Independent School whereas Muhyiddin said cabinet had decided decades ago that no more new Independent School will be allowed. So, MCA and Gerakan are lying and pretend they have no part in the cabinet decision. Dr, do you still think worth to associate with party that covered up the truth. What integrity still left with these parties ?

    MCA and Gerakan unveiled super menu to Tenang voters. But voters should not be fooled to trust the menu per se. They should instead dictate what they desire to eat. KTK and CSL are just the waiters who can’t /allowed to cook according the menu. They don’t even know if the ingredients are at their disposal. I am not saying PR is good but Bn is definitely rotten beyond repair.

    After the result of the Kugan case, I am very doubtful that we will see justice with Teoh Boon Hock’s RCI. What seems fair could be foul. The deed is rank and it smells to heaven.

    Human Rights Watch gave Malaysia a D- for our sandiwara for so called govt’s effort to improve the same. Yet KTK said not long ago that we are on tract to transform under Jibby’s leadership. He should be given an A+ for his effort to defend the indefensible. This is my early new year gift to Gerakan’s President.
