China is a superpower and it has and will behave like any other. It will do whatever it takes to build hegemony over what it considers its area of influence, even via corrupt means. - P Gunasegaran
P Gunasegaran wrote on the new ECRL deal in The Vibes last week.
Despite no proofs and new information, he insisted the original cost to build the ECRL put together by Dato Najib was meant to skim off money to pay for 1MDB debt. Its 3 years since BN government lost the 14th General Election, but no effort to use this allegation to ensure Najib eventually end up permanently in the slammer.
Instead, PH government went back and forth with the China government and contractor to finally cancelled it. Under PN government that is developing the perception as a mutant PH 2.0, they recently announced reviving the ECRL to the original Najib plan at lower cost.
Naturally, Gunasegaran is still not happy with the recent develoment. The reduced cost is not sufficiently significant and does not protect our national interest.
Foreign Minister Dato Hishamuddin's made a recent diplomatic embarassment to both Malaysia and China in his attempt to buddy up by calling his China counterpart "taiko". It does not bring about a significant decrease in cost and China's dominance in the local rail will continue unabated.

After much excuses and typical lawyer's wiggling, Dato Gopal Sri Ram failed to produce a letter to prove he was authorised as Deputy Public Prosecutor to represent government in the Datin Sri Rosmah Mansor's "solar project case".
This happened at the Court of Appeal last Thursday, but was conveniently not given coverage by media.
Gopal tried to wiggle his way out from producing the letter last week with the excuse he cannot give a copy of the letter to the defense team and claimed it is confidential.
The defense team then countered back. If he cannot give it to the defense, then show to the judges. The judges agreed. The court took a break as Gopal had to get the letter before the court.
When court resume few hours later, he produced a letter signed by current Attorney General, Tan Sri Idris Haron. It is not signed by former AG Tan Sri Tommy Thomas in which he was the AG at the material time the case started.
Will the increasingly seen as bias court process against "KlusterMahkamah" finally do justise and act fairly and professionally with integrity?

MARA officers and 5 exco members in UniKL are the new target for dismissal by politicians and wannabee politicians in MARA Corp.
Free Malaysia Baru, a PPBM back website wrote a summary of wrongdoings in MARA during the days of Pakatan Harapan dan Dato Shafie Apdal at MARA Inc. as though the current team is the saviour.
It is no surprise because FMB was the website that launched the attack to recently unceremoniously and unjustifiably removed MARA Corp CEO Dato’ Badlisyah Ghani and his management team of reputable professionals.
Prior to the unlawful dismissal, other blogs were used to discredit Badlisyah and his action for bringing in experienced and leading professionals in their field into MARA Corp.
The same modus operandi will be used and their gun is aimed at personnal in UniKL. The intention is obviously for PPBM politicians and wannabe politicians in MARA Corp to wrest control of MARA’s crown jewel.
It is not because UniKL is a private university with number of students more than any IPTA. And, it is not because UniKL has built a history of developing the institution from conceptual to achieve internationally recognised educational milestone. Most likely than not, the RM350m reserve of UniKl is like sugar and honey attacting ants and insects.
No wonder the new Uncle Don owner, Dato Megat Shahriman once passed a remark to throw the UniKL CFO out from the top of Menara KL. Apparently, he owned and managed the revolving restaurant at Menara KL.
