The Malay has saying, "Siapa makan cili, dia rasa pedas." We do not need to translate that do we?
George Bush used to say in a presidential debate, "If you can't stand the heat, you get out of the kitchen."
This is what exactly happened today.
Tan Sri Robert Phang announced his resignation from the MACC Committee on Prevention. He cited all sort of conspiracy theories and speculation which his spin masters will further elaborate and add colour.
This is to give him face. Do give him his last words.
Phang Quits MACC PanelWhat a party pooper?
KUALA LUMPUR, 27 JANUARY, 2011: Tan Sri Robert Phang announced his resignation today as a member of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) Consultation and Corruption Prevention Panel amid the graft allegations that were leveled at him following his urging for an investigation into alleged corrupt practices in Malaysia Airlines (MAS).
Phang, who is also a Justice of the Peace, explained that he wanted to preserve his integrity and that of the anti-graft body.
Yesterday, the MACC announced that it had decided to keep Phang as a member of the panel after he had made a request to be relieved of the post to enable MACC to investigate allegations that he was involved in corrupt practices.
Phang claimed that he was a victim of a character assassination attack aimed at intimidating him after he raised concerns regarding the lack of action in the MAS scandal.
He has consistently demanded that Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail be probed for graft, saying that Abdul Gani’s explanations to the panel had failed to dispel suspicions that he was “consorting” with Shahidan Shafie, an alleged proxy for former MAS executive chairman Tan Sri Tajuddin Ramli.
Phang added that the attack on him was an orchestrated attempt to discredit his reputation by “rogues from within and outside the government”.
He said he was not surprised that the attacks are also centered on his past business in Sabah as Abdul Ghani and deputy minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk V K Liew, are also from Sabah.
Liew had urged the MACC to initiate an investigation into Phang after the allegations of bribery emerged on an online blog.
Phang had demanded that Abdul Gani explain allegations that Tajuddin’s recent haj pilgrimage was sponsored by Shahidan, who was also said to have gone for the same haj trip.
Tajuddin was MAS executive chairman from 1994 to 2001. During his tenure, the national airline experienced losses totaling RM8 billion which led to complaints being lodged against him.
We were just getting started and it has not reached the bikini stage of the strip poker where the real fun is.
Before anyone start to think of giving him any sympathy, let this blog say stop it. We are ready to even release stark evidence of his activities.
Robert is leaving because he can feel the heat. He knows we have pressed the right button to trigger off more explosion to close in on him. Why would an influential and powerful man like him quit if there is not truth in what was divulge?
Believe me folks, there is no conspiracy. This is solid investigation and information sharing from network of bloggers and friends.
If there is any conspiracy, it is coming from the other side. It is a PKR and Anwarista thing. It is in their blood and brain to always imagining and cooking up things.
If only Robert Phang waited longer, we were going to release who tipped off Robert of Tan Sri Gani Patail and Shahidan's pilgrimmage. The person tipped someone who we believe is the mastermind and real conspirator.
He is the person who left clues all over the documents Raja Petra released to lead it back to him. Someone thinks they are smart, but on this, Allah gave me lead to the truth.
In the meanwhile, let's hope our mastermind cospirator did not quit from his job or leave the country from just that clue.
It'll spoil the fun.
However, do hope that the law catches up on this man who calls other as corrupt but he is the real corrupt one.
Unless Mr Fix It like Phang who goes around pretensiously as corrupt fighters is rid off, we will neve rid off this country of the disease of corruption.
Thank Allah that it was effortless to rid him out of MACC and enable them to do their jobs without such snitch.
