Media Statement (3) by Lim Kit Siang in Petaling Jaya on Friday, 14th August 2009:
Is Muhyiddin not interested in the truth as to whether the Transport Minister or the BNBBC Chairman is lying or whether both are lying?
The Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin seems to be totally unconcerned and uninterested as to the truth in the Ong Tee Keat-Tiong King Sing expose, whether the Transport Minister or the Barisan Nasional Backbenchers’ Club (BNBBC) is lying or whether both are lying?
Muhyiddin is more concerned about the “image of the government and the Barisan Nasional” and want both Ong and Tiong to stop “washing dirty linen in public” rather than promote the cause of the commitment of the Najib premiership to integrity and good governance.
Does Muhyiddin want the Ong-Tiong “dirty linen” to be buried again and for both Ong and Tiong just to shut up, pretend nothing had happened in the past few days of shocking exposes, so that everything can get back to “normal” as before?
Muhyiddin should know that this is no more possible, that either Ong goes as Transport Minister or Tiong goes as BNBBC Chairman and MP for Bintulu or even for both to relinquish their public political positions.
MCA members as well as the general Malaysian public want to know the whole truth of the so-called Ong-Tiong spat, especially as Ong said only yesterday that Tiong is one of the “10 hidden threats” which had surfaced blocking his attempt to fully uncover the whole truth about the RM12.5 billion PKFZ scandal.
What are the other nine “hidden threats”? Anyone or more of them coming from Umno quarters?
