Probe into leaked cabinet papers to narrow on place where it happened. (The Star report)
Putrajaya: Police investigations into the posting of classified Cabinet papers on the Internet will focus more on where the leak occurred rather than who was responsible for making them public, said Home Minister Datuk Hishammuddin Tun Hussein. Hey, the PDRM finally got their ‘corruption’ compass pointed in the right direction. It’s right smack in the middle of the PMO. In other words, they can’t find RPK lah.
He also warned that the police would even probe ministers if they were suspected to be involved. Yup, that’s gonna shake some black suits. Sabre rattling time. I’ll bet MCA’s gonna be the first port of call. But then again, they are just the deck hands. Try looking for the captain with a keris in his hand.
Hishammuddin said since the papers were classified, the person responsible for the leak would have to be “someone on the inside” and as such would have to face action. Duh! That’s how ‘classified’ leaks happen, dear home minister. From the inside. If it’s from the outside, it’s usually termed as an expose. That’s a good thing, I might add.
He said the act of leaking the papers was serious as it jeopardised the government’s decisions on how to lead, manage and administer the country and it was something that could not be tolerated. Gosh! You blokes in the cabinet actually work and make big, important decisions? And all this time, I’ve tolerated (sic) and thought that you’re a bunch of nincompoops who can’t read … hang on, we’re dealing with big, hugh numbers here, right? The ones with plenty of zeros at the back of the first digit. Like RM12,500,000,000.
“The papers were leaked before they were even discussed in cabinet and there is a possibility that they may not even have been discussed but leaking the papers has compromised the cabinet. Naughty, naughty, HH. Are yer saying that such an important secret government document with probably lots of words and big, hugh numbers was NOT read by the cabinet? Are yer certain or are yer just throwing a red herring for any gullible joe public to lap up this possibility? And if you yourself have not seen and read it, I’d recommend that you go here before the MCMC decide to ban it for something deemed as offensive. Thank RPK when yer done, will yer. Meanwhile, thanks but no thanks for the cunning obfuscation which I believe is the MAIN THRUST of this news report..
“There is a reason why the Official Secrets Act (OSA) was created and all those within the Government have a responsibility to respect the law and the confidentiality of the documents. Geez! And I thought the OSA was meant primarily for national security. Like how many nuts and bolts do you need to hold a submarine intact. No?
“I have told the police to conduct an all out and thorough investigation and investigate even ministers if they are suspected to be involved,” he told reporters when met at the Hari Raya open hosted by the Prime Minister and cabinet ministers here on Sunday. The PDRM ALWAYS have to have your green-light before they venture out of their cushy air-conditioned office, eh HH. What’s the newly re-instated IGP doing anywayz? Making coffee for yer, I’ll bet.
On another matter, Hishammuddin said the police had already handed to the Attorney General’s Chambers investigation papers on the allegations by Tunku Nadzimuddin Tunku Mudzaffar, grandson of the late Yang di-Pertuan Besar Negri Sembilan, that the Raja Muda of Johor Tunku Ismail Idris had put a gun to his head and hit him. Eleven months or closer to a year. That’s got to be a PDRM KPI record of sorts, especially when a firearm, yer know . a gun, was allegedly brandished. Wanna rake up Sungei Lunchu in JB just in case if the evidence was accidently dropped there?
The minister said the police had thus completed their work and it was now up to the AG’s chambers to decide on the next course of action. Twiddling their thumbs, more like it. It’s a case involving the bluebloods, yer twit. They are ‘bigger’ than the umnoputras.
Asked why the police took more than 11 months to conclude investigations into the case, he said that the papers had been handed in earlier but the AG’s chambers had then requested for additional information over the case. Maybe somebody stamped “RAHSIA” on it hence the AG deferred reading it like you lot in the Cabinet. Refer to above example.
“I was also told that the two sides had one point tried to resolve the problem on their own but what is wrong is wrong and the papers have now been handed to AG’s chambers and it is up to them to decide on the next course of action,” he said. Damn right, Mr Home minister. What’s wrong is still wrong. Just like what that bunch in Shah Alam did a couple of weeks ago with a severed bull-head. Unless you wanna wait 13 months and break a record. Ohh .. you are?
Tunku Nadzimuddin had claimed that he was hit in his head and face, had a gun pointed at his head, and suffered a fractured nose and other serious injuries as a result of the incident while his lawyer friend, Shamshuddhuha Ishak, who was knocked out, lost two teeth. Err .. never mind.
He had also hit out at the police for failing to act after having assured him that they would investigate the case and take the necessary action. Hmmpfff!
