Tun Hussein Onn
In the mid-70’s, when the late Tun Hussein Onn was the deputy prime minister, he insisted that the then Menteri Besar (of Selangor) Harun Idris was charged for bribery and corruption.
Harun was charged, convicted, and sentenced for the same.
A few years later when Hussein Onn was the prime minister, he went to England for a medical check-up. Mahathir was the then acting PM. In that little window, Mahathir wrote to the king and secured a royal pardon for Harun.
Today, he says he will remain for 2-3 years while waiting for a royal pardon for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Why? so he could place his son in a better footing to become the PM.
Or the pardon may not even materialise, wakakaka.
Yes, but why is there the humongous difference in the time required to get a pardon for Harun Idris and that promised for Anwar Ibrahim?
