60 million vs 3 billion ??? A small change, correct ??? By the way, it is only HighCourt decision. Hmmm remember Perak MB case ??? Is there any reason to celebrate for pakatan machais ???

Of course I remember the Perak case where a billion project for a high court judge who preside in the illegal grab of Perak. So you are so proud of all the corruption of billions and billons. What can we say of someone who has no dignity and (is) a wannabe
