KUALA LUMPUR: Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman should lodge a report with the authorities if he has evidence he was offered money to leave the country, said MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (pic).
He said what the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia youth chief had claimed was “just another political gimmick” that often emerges when a general election draws closer.
“I would read it as an entertainment news. Very entertaining,” he told reporters after launching the “Digital Transformation @ Take your business to greater heights” workshop here.
“If this young man has the evidence, he should just report it to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the authorities,” said Dr Wee, who is Minister in the Prime Minister's Department.
On Monday, Syed Saddiq claimed during a press conference that he was offered RM5mil to leave the country, and that his family had been harassed.
He said he had decided to defer his Masters in Public Policy at Oxford University in Britain for the coming academic year.
Evidence? WTF for?
If he has evidence he would have already reported to MACC with it, after a press conference of course, as per the alleged Altantuyaa murder SD, but this time with Mahathir heading the conference.
But allegations without evidence is far far tastier just like fresh ulam dengan sambal belacan. You wouldn't want to cook them up (pun unintended) with stupid evidence.
Besides, we Malaysians don't give a shit about silly inconvenient evidence.
When our faultless 'intuition' (ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning) tells us we are right, then we are right without nonsensically stupid 'evidence' or facts getting in the way, unless of course those 'evidence' and facts support our already set-in-concrete beliefs and convictions.
That's our way of believing and accusing, minus inconvenient evidence, logic or reasoning. We aren't called goofy gullible guppies for nothing.
