Palanivel's man says will soon release details of ROS conspiracy

comments     Published     Updated

E-mails alleging that the Registrar of Societies had conspired against former MIC president G Palanivel have not been released yet pending a response from current MIC president Dr S Subramaniam's camp.

AK Ramalingam, a close confidante of Palanivel, said he will, however, be holding a press conference on the matter soon.

"I am still waiting for an answer from former MIC youth chief A Vickneswaran and Subramaniam before releasing the e-mails and evidence about the conspiracy.

"(But) I will hand in all documentation on this conspiracy to the media at a press conference soon," Ramalingam said in a statement today.

On Sunday, Malaysiakini ran an article by Penang Deputy Chief Minister II P Ramasamy claiming an ROS conspiracy.

He cited a press conference held by Ramalingam who revealed that letters and directives sent by ROS to Palanivel were allegedly engineered by one of the current party vice-presidents through his lawyer.

A source familiar with the matter, however, claimed that the e-mails were nothing more than a synopsis, authored on Feb 19, after all the letters from the ROS to MIC ceased as of Feb 6.

The source had questioned why Ramalingam had not disclosed the e-mails.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
