Is London a perfect hideout?

London seems to be the most favorite hideout for Malaysian's good, bad and ugly. Also, one of best picks to do business.

Some of them who once were big names in local business are finding solace in London after their regime took a tumble or lost the government's favor. They started to relocate elsewhere - to the Middle East, Indonesia, Vietnam, China and other countries. South Africa is of no exemption.

Where are the likes of Tajudin Ramli, Halim Saad, Nazri Abdullah (ex-group editor of Berita Harian), Uncle Sam and other corporate figures who suddenly 'disappeared' from local arena?

Even Kalimullah has chosen London for his 'hide and seek' ever since Pak Lah retires as Prime Minister. Who else?

Then, another trend emerges. Those who made headlines as being among the 'most wanted' figures for what they had done - whether its right or wrong - are also turning London as their best hideout.

Blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin and private investigator P Balasubramaniam are also in London. Afraid to come home for investigation, I suppose. RPK didnt come home when his son who is now behind bars was hospitalised recently.

Bala, too didnt come home to face the MACC. Both RPK and Bala are involved in making statutory declarations about the murder case involving Mongolian's Altantuya Shaariibuu. Their families are in London too.

How long will they enjoy London is not an issue. The question is - is it save for them?

i think malaysia and UK got extradition agreement.

if there is a need, we can use it to bring them home to be investigated.

isu datuk najib dengan altanntuya masih diperkatakan rakyat. untuk membersihkan nama beliau (atau sebaliknya), kita perlu membawa balik bala dari london.

kenapa pula SPRM yang perlu ke london untuk menyoalnya?

mengarut dan buang duit kerajaan je

kalimullah did nothing wrong. whoever gave him the 'too many' projects must be questioned by the macc, and not him.

anyway, he needs to come home to clear the air.

Jai,

I am just wondering as to whether the cost of living in London (UK) is low that enable people like RPK and Bala to reside there?


The price that RPK and Bala were paying were a total cut off of their life, as their families would have to be remain split up unless they emigrated and join them abroad. Well, the question to asked is where the hell they get the money to reside in London? Sponsor or pay off.

I do not want to comment on the like of Tajuddin Ramli, Sam and Kalimullah since they amassed a lot of money when they are in "business"- but this two guys, RPK and Bala...emmm...

Well, who says it did not pay to do crime in Malaysia...he..he..a mockery of the law, amusing.. I thought Malaysia and UK has a bilateral arrangement to deport the so call criminal (wanted man).


Perhaps sinister foreign forces are backing RPK and Bala.

tak payah la sprm sampai nak ke london soal si bala ni. buang masa dan buang duit kerajaan.

kita ada hak perundangan untuk panggil dia pulang dan soal siasat di sini.

apa la bangang sangat?

dont be foolish.

kali and rpk ada buddies, dude! no prob for rpk to stay there. maybe bala too has joined them

RUSH HOUR said...

CALL BALA HOME.

INSTEAD OF MACC PEOPLE GOING TO LONDON AND SPEND LOTS OF MONEY, BETTER CALL HIM HOME.

GET A COURT ORDER FOR THAT!

RASCALS!

london is not a perfect hideout. we can track them anytime.

unless if they hide in alaska or inner africa

si pitak said...

pengkhianat selalunya akan cari tempat perlindungan atau suaka politik di negara lain. selalunya akan ada pihak yang menaja mereka tinggal di sana.

dalam kes k bala, sudah tentu ada orang yang menajanya sebab dia ni bukannya orang kaya nak duduk di london.

tuduhannya terhadap datuk najib perlu disiasat dan dibongkar. cuma saya rasa tak perlulah sprm ke london untuk berbuat demikian.

ada undang2 untuk mengarahkannya pulang memberi keterangan. sama juga dengan rpk.
