Last night, cyberspace was abuzz with reports of how American socialite Paris Hilton was briefly held by police on the French island of Corsica after being caught with cannabis in her handbag according to police sources as reported in many websites (listed below).

What is surprising about the latest report from Associated Press is as follows:


Paris Hilton was briefly detained in Corsica after sniffer dogs detected a “quite small” quantity of marijuana in her bag, a French newspaper reported Saturday.

Corse Matin newspaper said officers at the airport in Figari found about one gram’s worth of marijuana. Hilton, who was transiting the French Mediterranean island in a private jet on Friday, was hauled in for questioning and released about 30 minutes later, the report said.

In a story posted on its Web site, the newspaper said Hilton was traveling along with “personalities close to power in Malaysia” from the French capital to Porto Cervo, in Sardinia.

This is the second time she has run into the law this month. Paris Hilton was arrested during the World Cup in South Africa after a friend she was with took a joint to the Brazil-Netherlands quarter-final match in Port Elizabeth. You can read about it HERE. What is MOST surprising is the the photos of Paris Hilton with a bunch of Chinese guys in the background (nationality unknown) is no longer in the internet! Darn! I should have kept a copy but I am no Paris Hilton fan.

A few questions that remain unanswered:

1. Who were those people mentioned in the reports who are “people close to power in Malaysia”? Our authorities concerned MUST check it out as these reports have been circulated all over the world and puts Malaysians in VERY BAD LIGHT.

All they need to do is to check with the Police Department and Immigration Office of Sardinia, Italy and take the necessary action to interrogate those Malaysians regardless of how close they are to power.

2. Now why did the international media make mention of “people close to power in Malaysia” in their reports?

Does it imply those people actually said those exact words to the police and reporters?

If so, who are they to throw their weight around? How close are they to POWER in Malaysia? What sort of power????

Why were they with Paris Hilton? What were the circumstances that led to such a situation if it is true?

The Malaysian authorities must get to the bottom of this case as it certainly affects the reputation of Malaysians and the nation.
