Malaysiakini - MACC in no hurry to charge Fairus!
The news online reported ...
... contrary to current speculations that former Penang Deputy Chief Minister Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin (of PKR) could be charged with corruption sometime this week, a high ranking MACC official who preferred to remain unnamed, dismissed the expectation, stating: "Why the hurry to charge him? There is still a long way to go (in the case)."
Does that mean the door to UMNO is open wide for dear Fairus (assuming he wants to go down that way)? wakakaka.
Frankly I would suggest to the MACC to stop f*-ing around and go investigate Khir Toyo for his Disneyworld million ringgit shingdig at tax payers’ expense. Until MACC does that, it's just an organization at the beck and call of UMNO.
But back to Fairus and PKR in particular ...
I’ve often said that though PR supporters may believe in Anwar as being indispensable to the continuing cohesion of the Pakatan Rakyat, …
… his inner core members (those expelled from, or who had left UMNO together with him when he was expelled, to form KeADILan) represent the weakest link in the loose/informal coalition.
Born of UMNO, and unable to shed off their leopard spots, they succumb all too easily to the corrupting influence of power, money and indulgence.
Examples would be the Perak frogs, who were mainly PKR. Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi and Osman Jailu, the two PKR (former) executive councillors in the Perak PR administration, were charged for corruption last year barely six months into their term of office. They are now in the arms of UMNO ;-)
There was also some dodginess regarding the placement of a certain someone’s brother in the new Selangor government.
And the MB there also experienced a sticky situation involving some kerbau’s – am not sure whether that’s solved yet. But regardless of whether Khalid had been directly involved, I wasn’t impressed that his federal constituency in the Wilayah had benefited from the largesse of the state of Selangor. Whether legal or not, that’s patently wrong in every sense of the word and carries the bad odour of ‘conflict of interest’.
Mind you, I still haven’t forgotten the Kulim Wonder – I question this person’s suitability to be a people’s representative. He’s better off joining the staff of the Perak Mufti ….. or perhaps UMNO as some suggested he might bunk off to wakakaka!
As with the Kulim Wonder, Anwar Ibrahim is again tap dancing around with Fairus' replacement.
Penang has reserved a DCM position for PKR but the Great One has been avoiding making a decision, as if the problem would go away – hang on, it might, coz PAS has put in a bid on the slim possibility that Lim GE may favour the sole PAS candidate, given the new bonhomie relationship between the two ideologically strict parties.
Anyway, the two PKR candidates are Abdul Malik Abul Kassim and Maktar Shapee.
The Malaysian Insider reported: An indecisive Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and a split in PKR Penang could force Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng postpone naming a deputy chief minister I tomorrow to replace a disgraced Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin.
Anwar has yet to decide between Batu Maung assemblyman Abdul Malil Abul Kassim and Sungai Bakap’s Maktar Shapee, the only two Malay PKR assemblymen apart from Fairus who represents Penanti.
Malik is the candidate everyone except Anwar wants.
I was discussing with a sweetie on why Anwar hasn’t been in favour of Malik. Perhaps it’s because the bloke is a mamak (a term in Indian meaning ‘uncle’, but also implying the person is an Indian Muslim), ...
... and Anwar may be allergic to mamak from his own bad experience wakakaka.
