Whistleblowers - Horses’ Mouths – 15 July 2015

Harakahdaily - TS | .


Then they whistleblowed over the wrongdoings of the head of government. Suddenly what was considered right became wrong. The whistleblowers must be investigated and punished. Don't they know they cannot whistleblow on the prime minister? Others yes. But not the prime minister.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad, claiming the government switched its stand on whistleblowers because the latter opened the wrong can of worms



Splinter party

In our experience, all these splinter groups do not last more than two years.

I call upon all lenders to 1MDB to peruse through the financial statements with a fine-toothed comb to discover all discrepancies between the original copy lodge with SSM, and the doctored copy in their hands […] If discrepancies are found with the financial statements as I have alleged, I call upon the banks to immediately file police reports to protect their interest and that of their shareholders.

Tony Pua, Petaling Jaya Utara MP, claiming 1MDB had doctored documents


1MDB regrets that such statements on the company are being made by a third party such as Tony Pua and reported as facts on social media and online news websites. Such actions impact the day to day operations of 1MDB, a 100 percent government-owned company, and the implementation of the 1MDB rationalisation plan.

1MDB, slamming Tony Pua for making ‘unsubstantiated and damaging’ allegations regarding the company



IGP lied?

There was never any issue about cloned phones and my team of lawyers are ready to defend them. He knows nothing about Papagomo, and never communicated to anyone about being sold fake phones by the seller. This is an untrue statement by the IGP which prejudiced my client.

Show cause letter to Shafee Abdullah

I cannot reveal the contents of the letter as this is confidential.

Steven Thiru, Bar Council president, confirming a show cause letter has been sent ‎to Umno lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah for alleged professional misconduct after he went on a road show to discuss Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's sodomy conviction



Low Yat brawl

It all began because someone allegedly stole a handphone and was arrested for it. He then called on his pengikut (followers) to attack the people who nabbed him. This should not have happened in a multi-racial society. Although there might be anger among us, we should not riot. That will shun everyone, be it locals or foreigners.
