On 22nd October 2009, many were absorbed in reading the news about MCA’s attempt to resolve its internal fights. At the same time, 2 major items of news were overshadowed by that MCA story. First, the decision of our 1Public Prosecutor, the Attorney General, to close VK Lingam’s case despite the proposal of the Royal Commission held after that infamous video came into the open.
But there is another case now going on in Court. Remember those 2 persons from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) in Perak who left that Party and became independent State Assemblymen (ADUN) in February 2009? Well, they were charged for corruption before they left Pakatan Rakyat, and there was always suspicion that they were enticed to move out of PKR due to that case. Rumours were around for many months that they would be spared at their criminal trial in return for ‘supporting’ BN. Before, I did not give that rumour much credence.
But today, reports are out where it is obvious that the MACC prosecutor seems to have created reasonable doubt in their own case. Just read this NST article “Prosecution Star Witness Does an About-turn”, reproduced at Malaysia Today.
When I read this, as a lawyer, it seems as if the Prosecutor himself is trying to create reasonable doubt in the Prosecutor’s own case. It is that blatant.
“You leave Pakatan, we’ll help go easy on you in the MACC case”.
I can imagine those kinds of words uttered to these 2 former Pakatan ADUN to entice them to leave Pakatan. How else do you explain the shoddy prosecution?
Now, let me come to the title of this article.
I feel sad, sad that our country is engulfed by immoral people, selfish people and greedy-for-power people. This system continues to be manipulated and twisted for the benefit of the selected few.
I have some suggestions.
Let’s just scrap subjects like “tata-rakyat” or “moral” in school.
Stop all those religious classes in school.
Do away with history too.
Just teach all our children how to cheat, manipulate and lie, in school itself.
Just teach our kids that the Law is nothing more than the tool of the powerful and the rich, the immoral and the evil ones in Malaysia.
We can call this new subject; “Tata-BN”.
Just teach our kids that there is no need to get degrees and score so many A’s. After school, just join UMNO or MCA or MIC depending on the colour of your skin, and quickly learn how to abuse the system and waste all public funds.
Just teach the students that in Malaysia under BN, BN can do whatever they want.
Just teach the kids that the Government of this Country is not bothered about the sanctity and soul of this Country.
Just teach them that in Malaysia; being immoral is Cool!
I mean, if we are going to screw this country up, why not start at school?
