'Vote out BN gov't if there's a GLC-Tajuddin cover up'
If the rakyat thinks the government is trying to sweep things under the carpet by asking GLCs to settle their cases with business tycoon Tajuddin Ramli, they can always vote BN out.
"You can always decide not to support them in the next election," former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad (left) said at a press conference in Serdang today.
He was responding to a question on reports that allege the government is trying to minimise their exposure to a potential scandal by asking GLCs to settle their cases against the tycoon.
Asked about the four discounts given to Tajuddin in his RM1.4 billion settlement due to Danaharta, which ended up around RM500 million, Mahathir said that it was up to the judiciary.
"That is decided by the courts, which are independent. They can even decide that no action be taken," reasoned the former PM.
