COMMENT | The latest episode of our political circus features the “leaked minutes” of a PAS meeting allegedly pushing to "speed up" the corruption court cases of Najib Abdul Razak and Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to “topple” Umno.
Before I get into the long-running soap opera between PAS, Umno and Bersatu, I want to ask – why do some leaders declare that it's a "scandal" to hasten those trials?
All right-thinking Malaysians have been wondering what the heck is taking so long, especially when we compare it to the 1MDB-related trial of former Goldman Sachs banker Roger Ng, which was completed in just eight weeks in New York.
Surely, for such high-profile politicians such as Najib and Zahid, their trials should be done even faster? As an exemplary lesson to all Malaysians of the perils of corruption?
OK, back to the circus show...
