So says Karpal Singh. Another liar, liar, pants on fire, in the Malaysian judiciary?
Zaki Azmi has a week to thrown in the towel, or in this case his robe, or else Karpal is gonna spills the beans on him.
There is a recording of the Chief Justice bribing court officials, Karpal said.
Can we hear the recording, please…or else, no point claiming this or that.
Going by news reports, it seems Zaki had not made a clarification (he was reported saying that he had bribed court officials to get their work done), reading these two statements made by him recently:
“It took me six months to be nice, to bribe each and every individual to get back into their good books before our files were being unattended to” – Zaki, quoted in the New Straits Times on 8th November, 2008.
And then the clarification:
“Your reporter must have interpreted what I said, which is that during that period there was corruption in order to get things done at the court registry, as I myself having done it. I have never in my life bribed or received any bribe” – Zaki quoted in a clarification that appeared in the New Straits Times the very next day, and reproduced on 12th November, 2008 by Malaysiakini, which also reported two failed attempts by Yang Berkhidmat Karpal Singh to table an emergency motion in Parliament to debate the matter of the new CJ “committing a serious offence under the Prevention of Corruption Act 1981″.

Is this a case of bad English or what? or his poor understanding of what he himself said, or a slip of the tongue, waging in the wrong direction?
Hmm, you decide.
