I've heard about it, not once but many times - the police, the victims and those in the team - that a Dato Seri who is also a member of the Cabinet is a dirty person.
He is said to be connected with major gangster clans and protecting them. just name it - ah long, illegal gambling, pirated CDs, blackmailing, brothels, massage parlors... what else!
I first thought it was a plot to kill him politically. I didnt believe it and even laughed at the storytellers.
However, after a few months of fact-finding, including meetings with people from various clans, I am beginning to have a second thought about this 'big mouth' politician.
But I have to be fair to him too. So, I called his office several times over the past two weeks, hoping to get an appointment with him. Sad that his officers cut me off by giving many 'stupid' excuses.
I didnt give up. I tried at the Parliament but his bodyguards shooed me away. Tak apa laaa...!
I am still working on it. If all evidence points to him, I hope Prime Minister Najib will drop him from defending his parliament seat in the next general election. He is not only a liability to Umno and Barisan Nasional but a threat to the country.
Oppssss... one more thing. A Dato who runs a famous 'ikan bakar' business is also believed to be in a cahoot with this Dato Seri.
Wonder how Bukit Aman will attend to this kind of case. In fact, the MACC, the Home Ministry and other authorities too. I think we are paying too much attention to small cases, enjoying our catch on small fish.
As for the big ones, we have to close an eye or don't deal with it at all if we want to 'stay alive'.
And thats how the system works, right?
