Somehow, even after his retirement, Mahathir is still involved in controversy involving the judges. The Lingam tape, Salleh Abas, Ian Chin… ? What else is coming out of the judicial closet?
So what do you make of Mahathir’s response (to Ian Chin’s revelations)? Maybe his memory needs refreshing…
Both the New Straits Times and the Star today chose to splash Justice Dato Ian Chin’s “stunning” claims of my alleged interference in the judiciary, providing brief respite from the current issues of oil price hike etc etc
I will refrain from commenting for now and will do so in due time.
However, I am quite curious about what Ian Chin considers as “veiled threat”. Perhaps he could be more specific as his allegations are very serious.
Whichever way we look, most of us can now clearly see the damaging impact of the Mahathir legacy – from the squandering of our oil resources on grandiose projects to the undermining of judicial independence, to the privatisation of Tenaga, to the superprofits earned by the IPPs. Man, are we feeling the effects now!
You know something else? If you examine the comments on Mahathir’s blog, invariably you will find mostly positive comments and hardly any critical comments. (Correct me if I am wrong – I just had a quick look. More than that, and I know I would feel nauseated.) Wow, he must be the most popular man in the country!
Here’s a sampling of comments from his latest blog entry today:
All of these AAB’s choir boys e.g. NST, Bar Council (yg ekor sendiri pun bergelumang tahi), narrow minded-current cabinet ministers are merely a bunch of nincoompop whose merely try to take their lucky shot on you.
Please do not be worry Tun, we as your children will defend you even with our tooth & nail.
