A commentator by his name replied and denied. The right to reply as earlier promised shall not denied and is reproduced below:
Asalamualaikum Voice,On issue no. 8, the mention of Dr Ezani as silence is based on the meeting minutes. It was meant to show he did not display attempt to dominate or influence the other members in the discussion. He may have misunderstood.
I am not sure why and how the stories started but let me clarify things.
1. My so called meeting with KJ was pure coincidence. I was waiting for the health minister and Dato Dr Robaayah. As I waited with Dato Salleh , KJ came out of Dato Ismail's suite and stopped to meet us. I actually mention , please dont allow the privitaisation. It will have a tremendous impact on the public and I was worried. Thats it. Does this by chance meeting labels me as one of the conspirators?
2. As for the Christmas eve meeting. I was not invited to give a presentation. I was one of the 8 consultants nominated to meet the board. However only 5 attended.
3. Yes, I mentioned that IJN should not behave like its a bank (like a corporate entity) BUT it should stick to its original core activity (that is being a hospital). I dont know why this was left out. You can check with my medical director , dep. medical director , head of cardiology and another 2 consultants that attended that meeting. (the MD is also a board member )
4. I have no corporate interest nor have the resources to be part of this conspiracy.
5. My parents are in their 80s , my uncle is wheel chair bound and I only know the doctor son of Tan Sri Kadir , an prominient endocrinologist.None of them have any interest in this , although they are patients of IJN. My Father in law is not interested in all this now and is busy entertaining his cucus
6. I stand firmly to state again that I am against privatisation and have been very vocal against it. This is well known amongst my fellow doctors and staff.
7. I am not sure why I am being implicated in al these things but my loyalty remains with my patients especially those that require constant government support like the transplant and mechanical heart patients. Why do you think I am so vocal against privatisation?
8. On the claim that I was quiet during the professional meeting, I was very vocal but the points and discussion were all summarise by the secretary.
I am very disturbed by your allegations and remarks and may i request that you take them back..
Thank you and wasalam
Dr. Mohamed Ezani Md Taib
His reply is confirmed by another commentator by the name Rosli Mohd Ali. Upon checking on the IJN website here, the name resembled one cardiologist, Dato Dr Rosli Mohd Ali. The reply is reproduced below:
Dear Sir,This blog will accept in good faith his expressed position to oppose privatisation. Hereon, this blog will refrain from probing further on Dr Ezani’s conversation with Khairy and possibilities of Tingkat 4 boys influence.
I was disturbed with the article on IJN and the Trojan Horse. I happen to be one of the doctors who attended the Emergency Board of Directors meeting. The part about Dr Ezani making a point towards consideration for privatization was absolutely inaccurate. We stand by the earlier and only statement we the doctors made to the press.
Do recall this blog did pose this question; “Is it fair to assume (him as an interested party for the 49%) just from his expressed opinion in a Board meeting and publicly seen having a conversation with Khairy?”
A Voice of ABITW apologise for any harm or inconvenience caused to Dr Ezani.
It is not the practise of this blog to withdraw posting, thus the posting will remain. There will be noticable link on the original posting to ensure blog readers are aware of his denial.
