Dr M’s first failure

My first failure was Tun Musa Hitam himself. He could not wait for me to retire. So he resigned after five years being with me as my deputy, in a government his boys called the MM government. He believed the Umno Supreme Council would throw me out and appoint him as president. The council decided to persuade him to return as DPM and deputy president. He came back as deputy president.

Nazri’s warning

I don't want to be like him because after this, I am going to attack him. So it’s better for him to cease (his attacks). If he continues and I attack him, I will end up like him. That's why I ask that he stops (his attacks).

AG’s authority

The MACC takes note of the advice and recommendations by the OPR at its meeting yesterday and hopes this matter is not misinterpreted as challenging the attorney-general by any quarters. I would like to emphasise that prosecution powers are with the attorney-general as stipulated under Article 145(3) of the Federal Constitution.

The panel also did not conclude that the MACC investigators had collected sufficient evidence to prove a prima facie case against Najib.

TMI blocked

This is an unpleasant surprise. MCMC has replied to my query and said they will issue a statement.

With regards to that, MCMC reminds news portals to not disseminate or publish articles that are not verified. This is because such action can cause confusion and create unwanted situations.

Currently, Malaysian government officers have been encouraged to wear batik every Thursday. To this end, I call upon all GLC's and private sectors to also urge their staffs to wear batik on the same day of the week.
