At long last, 10 years to the day after he first became prime minister, Najib appeared in court for what promises to be a long drawn out legal battle on multiple charges. A bit of drama outside the courtroom as well. And listen to those chants of Malu apakah, Bossku?!” (shakes my head in disbelief)
The Suhakam findings thia morning were disturbing, pinning the responsibility on Raymond Koh’s and Amri Che Mat’s enforced disappearances on the Special Branch. But it is still some way before the families can get some closure.
Check out the Aliran statement in response. We never again want to witness anymore enforced disappearances.
And over in Penang, we have the peculiar case of a businessman claiming trial on charges of deceving a managing director to pay him RM19m to help “settle” an MACC probe on Penang tunnel builder Constortium Zenith Construction Sdn Bhd.
So keep an eye on developments on these three fronts. It promises to be riveting.
