Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is very concerned about the talk (or rumours) that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief, Abu Kassim Mohamed, may be retired off soon.
Dr Mahathir said in his blog that if Abu Kassim were to be removed then this would give an impression that there was something wrong and that the allegations against the government and/or against Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak are true.
This looks like a pre-emptive strike. Dr Mahathir may know something that the rest of us do not — meaning that Abu Kassim is on the way out — and he wants to discourage the government or the Prime Minister from acting. Or maybe this is just a precautionary strike — striking first in the event it is true but no harm done if it is not.
Then again the talk or rumours are probably not true and Dr Mahathir knows it is not going to happen — and then when it does not happen in the end he can always claim that it did not happen because he had pre-empted it. In other words, Dr Mahathir ‘saved’ Abu Kassim. Because of Dr Mahathir’s ‘intervention’ the government/Prime Minister got cold feet and abandoned the plan to remove Abu Kassim — meaning they are scared of the old man.
Either way Dr Mahathir would be seen as having won. If Abu Kassim is retired off he can say ‘I told you so’ and if he is not Dr Mahathir can say ‘there you are, they are scared of me’.
The question here is: did Dr Mahathir come out with this plan all on his own or did Abu Kassim go running to Dr Mahathir to ask for help? It could be that Abu Kassim told Dr Mahathir that he (Dr Mahathir) ‘owes’ him (Abu Kassim) because he had joined the ANC (Anti-Najib Campaign) and had helped them to discredit the Prime Minister. Hence they need to help save his ass.
The impression being created is that Abu Kassim is a noble and honourable man and all he wants to do is the right thing. And that is why he joined the ANC in its bid to oust Najib. And Abu Kassim is merely an innocent victim who is being made to suffer because he tried to do the noble and honourable thing.
That is nothing but a load of hogwash. Now they even say that the ex-Attorney General, Gani Patail, is a noble and honourable person who was punished for tying to do the right thing — meaning arrest Najib and put him in jail — whereas 18 years ago he was cursed as the man who fixed up Anwar Ibrahim on fabricated charges of sodomy. And the late Kevin Morais is being hailed as a true son of Malaysia as well when not too long ago he was fingered as the person who tried to fix up Rosli Dahlan.
Whenever someone opposes the Prime Minister he or she is a noble and honourable person. But if they do not oppose the Prime Minister then they are slime-balls and scumbags. How simple the Malaysian minds works. If you support DAP you are a patriot but if you oppose DAP you are a traitor to the country — again the workings of a simple-minded Malaysian. So, can I say that if you support Hudud you arewaruk but if you oppose Hudud you are kafir? Simple, is it not?
If Abu Kassim is such a noble and honourable man why does he not do the right thing and settle the Rosli Dahlan case? We talk about the Najib case but we totally ignore the Rosli case. And why is that? Is it because Rosli is a ‘nobody’ and settling his case has no political value whereas ousting Najib has great political value?
How fast Malaysians forget? ‘Hitlers’ of days gone by are ‘Gandhis’ today when they turn against the Prime Minister. So what is MACC then — another member of Pakatan Harapan?
This was what Din Merican wrote in June last year:
It was 8 Ramadans ago that the MACC conspired with then Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan and Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail to fix up Rosli – brutally arresting him before his staff at his office, threw him into their underground dungeon, refusing to give him medical treatment for the injuries he suffered and then hastily charging him in the most humiliating way just one day before Hari Raya of 2007.
Gani Patail, as the Public Prosecutor, then delayed Rosli’s criminal trial until 2010. When Rosli was acquitted, Gani kept up the false facade of an appeal until 2012 because Gani wanted to use it as a bargaining chip to force Rosli to withdraw his civil suits against Gani, the MACC Chief Commisioner Abu Kassim, Musa and a few other MACC officers including the lying faggot Kevin Morais.
This was a first in Malaysian legal history and the annals of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC). Already, since it’s formation the MACC had topped the charts as the law enforcement agency where people die in custody as in the deaths of Teoh Beng Hock and Ahmad Sarbaini. But no one from the MACC was charged for these deaths because all the MACC officers said they didn’t know what happened. (READ MORE HERE).
Yes, someone can rape your mother today but if tomorrow he joins Pakatan and screams ABU (Anything But Umno) they will recommend him for the Noble Peace Prize.
By the way, they are also suggesting that Anwar Ibrahim be recommended for the Noble Pace Prize. For what? For going to jail on charges of sodomy? What did he do when he was in government and had the power to change the country?
He messed up the education system by ‘abolishing’ English. He almost started May 13 Version 2 by messing with the Chinese schools and which triggered Operasi Lalang. He messed up the economy by making bad decisions when he was the Finance Minister. He messed up Umno with his money-politics. And now he messed up Pakatan Rakyat with his Kajang Move.
And that is just the icing on the cake. Do you know what the cake below the icing looks like? Yes, Malaysia is in a mess. And the people who messed up Malaysia are Dr Mahathir and Najib. That is what you would like to believe. You forgot about what Karpal Singh said about Anwar, or what Lim Kit Siang said about Anwar, or what Mat Sabu said about Anwar. Of course, today Anwar deserves the Noble Peace Prize because he opposes the government even though he messed up big time when he was in the government.
