ROSLI DAHLAN: A Case of Selective Prosecution and Justice Delayed

by Din Merican

“Justice delayed, is justice denied” – William Gladstone (1809 – 1898)

Since two weeks ago, Raja Petra Kamarudin’s (RPK) Malaysia Today news portal posted the series of MACC NFA cases. Like the NCIS TV series, RPK slowly peels layer after layer of what the crime is, who did it and how it was done. All there is to do after the expose’ is to prosecute that crime. But that would not be in the NCIS tv series. That would be in another tv series that glorify the brilliance of the defence counsel and the idiocy of the prosecutor’s case, like LA Law or Boston Legal. The two latter tv series however provide tongue in cheek comedy relief, not unlike the U-tube court video of the MACC’s Director of Prosecution Dato’ Razak Musa demonstrating how Teoh Beng Hock could have died by strangulating himself.

How MACC Lawyers and Attorney General brought shame to Malaysia, her Judiciary and Legal Profession.

RPK’s series of arcticles on “MACC NFA Cases” have now come to Part 10. RPK has provided an Idiot’s Guide to Identifying Crime and Corruption. This is a very instructive tool for an institution like the MACC whose motto is “Amanah, Tegas, Adil” (Trustworthy, Impartial, Fair) and whose head, the Chief Commissioner Dato’ Seri Abu Kassim Mohamed, had made a public pledge during the recent Malaysian Law Conference that he would resign if the MACC can be shown to have failed to investigate cases against “big fishes.



The ABUs: Abu Lahab-Abu Jahal and Abu Kassim

Abu Kassim has yet to rise to the pledge that he had made, he has yet to resign. It seems that Abu Kassim is just another Abu Lahab and Abu Jahal, two despised characters in Islamic history. Abu Kassim should be reminded that in Surah Al Lahab (surah 111:3), God warned people like him that: “Burnt soon will he be in a Fire of blazing Flame!”

UMNO’s Khir Toyo Excesses

What has been revealed by RPK is not secret. The public already knew about Khir Toyo’s excesses, about the Disneyland trip, the cruise down the River Nile, the Morrocan belly dancers etc. The public already knew about officials of the UMNO Selangor Government under Khir Toyo having a jolly expensive holiday disguised as a technical visit at taxpayers’ expense. The public already knew of the opulent Balinese palace Khir Toyo build costing more than RM24 million, which he claimed was worth less than RM3 million. The public already knew that his new found wealth justified a new handsome plastic surgery face and fair smooth skin which he claimed is achieved by eating tempeh (fermented soya), a traditional food of the Wak Jawa Tempeh my foot!

Before and after Tempe

Former Selangor Menteri Besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo along with his family and other state officials spent almost RM1.6 million on two overseas trips which included a tour of Paris and Orlando Disneyland.

The late TBH lost his life because of MACC investigation of allege misuse of state fund of RM 2,400. Khir Toyo has his multi million built mansion but no action taken. I think he has workd really darn hard being a general dentist. Syabas Toyo!, my wife (who was his senior and tutor in the dental faculty) is proud of your achievement for being the most workaholic dentist in the world

The public knew he lied not just because they can compare his ‘old” and “new” look, but because there are thousands of Javanese in Kelang and everywhere else in Malaysia and millions more Javanese in Indonesia whose skin is as “sawo matang” (earthen brown) as can be, which no amount of tempeh-eating could make fairer. The public already knew all these lies.
