Can a 12 month suspension of MP Gobind Singh drive the ghost of Altantuya away from Parliament?
No sir, it wont. What it will do and has done with the announcement of the suspension today is to revive her spirit.
If some quarters believed Najib Tun Razak and Rosmah Mansor had nothing to do with the heinous crime of blowing out her body, well, with Gobind’s punishment today, some may start to believe that maybe there might be some truth in it.
Or else, why such an action against an MP? Isn’t 12 months a bit too long? What about his constituency? Wouldn’t this be eventually punishing his people?
Why should Najib be afraid of being called a ‘murderer’? Get Gobind to prove it in Court!
But there are too many unanswered questions about the case and if not cleared up anytime soon, Najib could become a caricature for everything wrong about a Malaysian politician. (Malaysian Insider)
You see, I did not say that. But I am sure that many are thinking on similar lines. The suspension only enforces Gobind’s allegations, it seems. That Najib may have something to fear.
So was it wise to let Gobind Singh have his cake and eat it too, Najib?
The DAP and Pakatan Rakyat will crow about this ‘injustice to an MP’ to high heavens, from today until kingdom comes.
What more, Gobind’s dad, Karpal Singh (Lion of Jelutong, etc) will be (has been?) slapped with a sedition charge(d) over his plan to sue the Perak Sultan over the Perak Crisis.
Why do the papers say ‘threat’ to sue? The word connocts something ‘violent’ whereas it is just a citizen’s right to use the law to protect him/herself, isn’t it?
If ordinary citizens can’t even plan to do this, I must say, we have totally lost it. And along with this, will investor confidence in the country be lost too.
Who dares to invest here, when they perceive that justice could not be fought for in this land?
Meanwhile, Karpal and the DAP are sure (already happening) to gain alot of political mileage out of these two incidents.
So is this a wise act, Najib? Seems like you may want to rid the world of Altantuya, but she lives on even more eerily in the dungeons of your mind.
