Ling: Betrayal or is there really no honour among theiving friends

The rakyat is waiting to see the REAL THIEVES from UMNO to be charged. Will it happen or this is just a sandiwara of the BN leadership to hoodwink the rakyat to believe that they are trying to wipe-out CORRUPTION in lieu of early 13 GE. The scape-goats are going to be MCA and MIC leaders !!

Tun Ling Liong Sik was charged in court yesterday. It sent shocks to the MCA. MCA must now feel betrayed. After all Ling Liong Sik was one of us- us being one of those important leaders of the BN in those halcyon days.

Indeed, Ling Liong Sik was PM of Malaysia for a few hours when Tun M was party-less for that few hours when old UMNO was deregistered and a new UMNO was being formed. What if Ling Liong Sik did say at that time- go and fly kite. Saya PM sekarang. You orang keluar BN.

So, personally for Ling Liong Sik- he must have felt betrayed the most.
There was one piece of news however that attracted my attention. It is this:-
According to the charge sheet, the Finance Ministry had already valued the land at RM25psf - inclusive of compounded interest - and this fact was withheld from the cabinet by the accused.

I am not sure how a cabinet meeting is conducted. Usually in an EXCO meeting for example, all papers would be prepared by the secretary to that meeting. For a Dewan Undangan Negeri, by the setiausaha MMK –secretary to the EXCO usually a PTD officer. I am thinking, the principle must be the same- files and papers prepared by the cabinet secretary.

That being the case, a copy of the file note containing the valuation price of the land must be in all the files. Unless, the file for the PKFZ topic for that day was prepared by Ling Liong Sik alone and that the only information for decision that fateful day, came from Ling Liong Sik alone. That would be highly unusual.

Unusual because at all material time, the Finance Minister at that time, had in his possession all information about the land to be bought by PKFZ. He would make this information available to all cabinet members at that meeting. Or in preceding meetings. He would have spotted the blatant discrepancy unless he went along with Liong Sik. Other alerted meeting members would too.

All cabinet members present at that meeting at that time would now have to discover that particular document provided by whoever it was at that time, from his/her own personal files, and produce them in court. So all you SUSK- prepare to look for the file of that meeting for your minister.

This means everyone at that meeting on the day Ling Liong Sik presented his notes would have to appear before court to testify. Now everyone will stab Ling Liong Sik.
If the only paper informing the value of the land came from Ling Liong Sik, then everyone was deceived. Or everyone agreed in unison with the facts presented by Ling Liong Sik. It would be interesting also to know, whether the Minister of Finance then, who had the real information went along with Ling. Or did he object?
If the entire cabinet agreed with ling despite having the real facts, then the entire cabinet is vicariously liable.

Ling Liong Sik is now feeling, most betrayed. Or - there is no honour among thieving friends.
