Khir Toyo - Horses’ Mouths – 30 September 2015

Harakahdaily - TS | .

Khir Toyo

I apologise to my family, friends, and supporters who may have suffered shame because of this case. I also want to thank them for their words of courage and sympathy. (But) I wish to state that throughout the trial, the public prosecutor never produced any facts that there was any element of corruption. Basically, an element of corruption should be in the form of kickbacks for me for approving something for Shamsudin Hayroni.

Dr Mohd Khir Toyo, former Selangor Menteri Besar, apologizing to his family, friends and supporters for embarrassing them after being found guilty of corruption while maintaining his innocence


Pardon is an option, but before we take the option, we are considering another option. There is another serious option, but we need to see the written judgment.

Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, Dr Mohd Khir’s defence lawyer, saying his client may consider filing a petition for royal pardon as one way to escape the Federal Court’s decision to uphold his one-year jail term for corruption



Chinese voters

Don't let there be a perception that all Chinese support DAP. If we go to the ground, many Chinese don't support DAP. This must be clear. DAP also cannot assume they get (100 percent ) support from the Chinese community currently.

Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah, PAS vice president



China ambassador fiasco

The normal practice in cabinet when one minister is not in the country, only another minister can act on his behalf, not his own deputy minister.

Nazri Aziz, Tourism and Culture Minister, insisting that he had no intention to interfere in the affairs of Wisma Putra after the Chinese ambassador was summoned over remarks made during a visit to Petaling Street



Red shirt rally

I think it is a balanced reaction.

Hishamuddin Hussein, Defence Minister, insisting that the red shirt rally on Sept 16 played a role by "balancing" the rallies the country experienced so far



Here comes Dr Ling

It has been some time that Najib had been asked for explanations, but there are still no answers. If I were young, I will also say the same (as the Pasir Gudang MCA Youth).

Ling Liong Sik, former MCA president, saying he understood the feelings of the Pasir Gudang MCA Youth who had cut ties with the Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak


Slower internet package

I read that there are a wide range of Internet speeds that Malaysians can choose from, and that 71% of Malaysian Internet users prefer the slower Streamyx broadband. Oh dear, really? And we want to be a developed economy by 2020, a first-world country which has to be innovation-driven? What and who were sampled or interviewed?

Rafidah Aziz, former minister, challenging the statement by Communications and Multimedia Minister Dr Salleh Said Keruak, questioning whether Malaysians really preferred slower broadband packages
