What kind of Home Minister is this!?
How can he not know the whereabouts of a “hot” witness like PI Balasubramaniam Perumal?
How can we expect him to keep the country safe when he can’t even pin down a fellow Malaysian?
A Home Minister can easily summon immigration records to check if Bala had left the country.
With his powers, he can summon almost anything, or walk into any homes, to find who he wants.
How else do they terrorise people with the ISA and throw them into Kamunting?
But he acts like a naive fool and says (theedgedaily.com) :
“Why you asked me? I also don’t know. I am sure he is somewhere and he might be safe with his family. But I don’t know where he is,” he said when met at the Parliament lobby yesterday.
Who should we ask then? Our grandmothers?
“Some people are looking for him but could not find him. But I don’t know where he is.”
So, why do we need a Home Minister? Better just stay at home!
Asked if there were any immigration records of Balasubramaniam leaving the country, Syed Hamid said he was not aware of it.
If the answer is ‘No’. Just say so. We can always look elsewhere. Which makes me suspect that he is still within the country, and may perhaps be in “unsafe hands”.
Such shifty answers breed speculations!
The minister said he was leaving the matter to the police. “It’s up to the police whether there is any action to be taken or something that we should take action on. The police need to look into it,” he said.
That may very well mean: case closed.
And this is the man who says he offers protection for everyone?
Please-lah, go home and stay home.
