‘Video MP Loh’ promises another exposé

Kelana Jaya MP Loh Gwo Burne who shot to fame with the VK Lingam video says he has another one on judiciary fixing.
PETALING JAYA: Kelana Jaya MP Loh Gwo Burne, who became an overnight sensation with the VK Lingam tapes, says he has another video exposing case fixing within the judiciary.
Loh will be revealing to the media next week a video recording showing an alleged ongoing case fixing within the judiciary, but declined to divulge any details as yet.
“It is regretted that I cannot reveal anything due to legal reasons, but when releasing the video, I wish to inform the public of this likely violation of justice,” Loh told FMT.
He added that he has since met with representatives from the Bar Council, who have advised him on the legal matters regarding the video.
“When you do something like this [release a controversial video], there tends to be some people who will challenge you in court,” Loh said.
Asked if he was afraid of repercussions, Loh bravely replied: “There is nothing I am afraid of in the world.”
“They can challenge and threaten me, but nothing will hold me back,” he said.
“I am working for a better Malaysian society and environment,” he added.
Asked if he was responsible for recording the new video, Loh laughed: “I don’t always take videos-lah!”
“Otherwise other people will look at me as someone who always takes videos and avoid being around me.”
The 38-year-old Loh shot to fame in 2007 when a video that he shot led to a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the manipulation of judicial appointments.
The video earned him the parliamentary seat when he contested in the 2008 general election, defeating Barisan Nasional candidate Lee Hwa Beng and independent Billi Lim.
Loh’s low quality video was made public in September 2007 by Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim and showed lawyer VK Lingam allegedly talking to former Chief Judge of Malaya Ahmad Fairuz Abdul Halim about the appointment of the latter into the office of Chief Justice of the Federal Court.
Ahmad Fairuz retired as the Chief Justice of the Federal Court in late 2007 after his tenure was not renewed due to objection from the Conference of Rulers.
