YOURSAY 'The MACC officers are all assigned only to probe Pakatan Rakyat MPs, where would they find time for this?'
MACC urged to act on sale of defence secrets
Odin: Basic logic tells one that the secret information must surely has been obtained by the then defence minister and sold to the French company through his close confidant, Abdul Razak Baginda, or his father.
Only the said minister could have access to and obtain the information; Abdul Razak could not.
The lion's shares of the RM142 million from the sale of the information and of the RM450 million commissions from the purchase of the submarines must surely have gone to the said minister.
That is why the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) has kept mum.
Anonymous #88568176: This is treason that we are talking about. Will PM Najib Razak keep a stony silent even on this?
Will it be deemed ‘not of public importance' just because it involves him? Is he is above the law, even treason?
By Election Fan: DAP leader Lim Kit Siang, MACC's hands are tied. They are all assigned only to probe Pakatan Rakyat MPs, where would they find time for this?
Only yesterday they committed to probing a 17-year-old allegation on PKR deputy chief Azmin Ali. They investigated a petty RM2,000 transaction that eventually led to the death of Teoh Beng Hock.
This defence case is a billion-dollar scandal that will turn Putrajaya upside down, so even if MACC has the evidence to charge those responsible, they do not have the guts to bring it up.
Even if they do bring it up, the AG (attorney-general) will block it or mark the file ‘no further action'. We are indeed feeding a bunch of parasites that are so deeply intoxicated by Umno's venom.
Onyourtoes: If this piece of news is true, then what is the point of buying that two submarines? I think by now all our potential enemies and allies would have known everything even before our U-boats leave Sepangar naval base.
Emergency motion to debate defence secrets sale
Abasir: None of our ‘patriotic' Umno members will discuss this, just like they never asked why two members of Najib's security detail would simply go out to randomly kill an unknown Mongolian and then blow her up with military explosives.
Violent, frothy ‘patriotism' only surfaces when an Indian lady who is not a Muslim, together with her associates from all ethnic groups, ask for free and fair elections.
Jstom: Fat hopes of getting the emergency motion through Parliament. The speaker will say that Parliament cannot discuss random topics raised overseas.
2zzzxxx: Nothing is "highly-classified" when Umno can make hundreds of millions.
No one can touch these people who committed treason as Umno's police, MACC, the Dewan speaker, etc, are there to make sure these top people are never questioned.
RM142 million in their bank account can pay a lot of people off.
DurianTimun: If, on the other hand, a foreign lawyer were to reveal that an opposition leader had sodomised somebody somewhere, the whole infantry of the PDRM (Royal Malaysian Police), the attorney-general, MACC, Perkasa, the media, etc, will be asked to focus on the matter which would be deemed of a priority to national security and interests.
Anonymous #6194321469: All Pakatan MPs must be present to demand an emergency debate on this important issue of the selling the country's military secret documents to France.
We must follow this demand to the end. Do not let BN put up any silly and lame excuses again. We have had enough of their excuses all these years to avoid emergency motions and royal commission investigations.
Wira: The parliament speaker will come out with a bizarre excuse - like the case is now pending in a French court so this is considered sub judice - why the motion should not be debated. Mark my words.
Selling of defence secrets: A national betrayal
Azlan Ahmad: This case will soon go into oblivion. Suaram can try all it can, but at the end of the day, it's better not to waste time.
This is a government-to-government affair. Defence companies have been known to pay bribes to government officials to buy their equipment. To them, it is a commercial deal - pure and simple. The US makes such deals, so does the UK and all other arms-supplying countries. So my advice to Suaram - just go and fly kite.
Jedi_Who: Umnoputra's have always blamed the Jews for everything. Now, we know who the enemies of our country are.
Raise this treasonous act in Parliament and everywhere. The people must be made aware.
We have to come out of this rut under the corrupt Umno-BN government, for the good of our country and the future of our children.
Anonymous #40538199: The army veterans must do a butt dance and Perkasa should follow up with a mock funeral for these traitors.
