Malaysia Uncut

A Repository of Malaysian Stuff and More

Umno spat merely a cover

Umno spat merely a cover
J Chong

Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s tirades against the present government and its leadership is to create a distraction from his many failed policies and the cronyism he practised. Malaysians should not be fooled, Mahathir worked well with his many crony friends. This is the name of the game. We should bring back the law that Anwar Ibrahim tried to introduce in Parliament years ago, a law allowing for past leaders to be prosecuted for misdeeds they had perpetrated during their rule to amass tremendous wealth.

Top leaders in South Korea and Japan have been prosecuted and Indonesia’s Suharto is still not out of the woods yet.

So people, wake up. The current spat between Pak Lah and Dr M is just a distraction. We must be vigilant in our efforts to prosecute those who have stolen from the masses.

Dr M’s attacks are merely another way of asking what happened to all his cronies’ contracts. Pak Lah must stay strong and reveal every contract and payments in the past that have today bankrupted the country.

Or we can follow our Indonesian brothers and become one of the most corrupted countries in Asia.
