DATUK HABIBAH MOHD YUSOF WANTS TO ABOUT BRA LET TALK ABOUT THE BRA SIZE
If not at the bidding stage, at least at the approval stage or even at stage signing of legal documents. Assuming one found out at a later stage, and if one’s integrity is of “utmost importance, more so as a Muslim”, one should have got the spouse and family to withdraw from the project and decline the loan.
Does not one feel any guilt at all that there would be many very qualified and eligible people who have been in the field slogging their life in this kind of activity (many with no financial aid) and when a project like this comes along, some high-powered folks from the city corner it together with all the government aid that goes with it.I wonder who is “dianiaya”?
Wanita Umno chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, how can you say, “My integrity is of utmost importance but more so as a Muslim, I feel that I have been ‘dizalimkan’ (made a victim), ‘dianiaya’ (discriminated against) and ‘diaibkan’ (humiliated) with baseless allegations, which is one of the most heinous transgressions against the principles laid down by God.”During the opening of the Nuzul Quran, PM Najib Razak said don’t use Islam for political gains. Didn’t you listen? If you were a true practising Muslim, you wouldn’t have said that because you and Allah know it’s all a lie.The story that I have gathered so far is this. Your spouse is seeking to go into business that involves a staggering RM300-plus million and in which he has no experience whatsoever.
He is going to commit your family to a loan amounting to at least RM250 million. He does it all on the quiet. After getting the loan, a Mercedes CLS, luxury condos, plots of land in prime locations, etc, suddenly appear on your list of assets. He never tells you how he has acquired those things. And nor do you ask.Does all that happen? Of course, it all does. It all happens in a very badly written fiction, and no publisher would want to publish it, full-stop.
What happened in NFC definitely showed such leadership is failing and rather misleading.
Shahrizat, no one in the government has openly come out to support your claim that you were not involved in the “cabinet decision”. That says a lot. More telling is that your senatorship was not renewed by your own party and consequently your lost the Ministership. Why should they do you in if you are innocent? Sorry you do not convince us.
Whatever motive Rafizi Ramli has is his business and not my concern. But whatever happens in NFC is a public issue which the rakyat has every right to know. Simply because it involved a substantial amount of RM250million public funds which comes from the taxpayers’ moneys. They were never her own personal fund as she is rightly accountable.
Does all that happen? Of course, it all does. It all happens in a very badly written fiction, and no publisher would want to publish it, full-stop.Here are some pertinent questions that require answers.
Secondly, did the cabinet discuss and approve the NFC (National Feedlot Corporation) project during their weekly meetings? If yes, didn’t the cabinet instruct her to be excused from these deliberations as her family is involved in the project?
If really she has no idea that her family is involved in the project, she should find it weird as to why she needs to be abstained from these deliberations. Either way she should know what is going on in her family and during cabinet discussion.
Justathougt: Actually I am more interested in how the judge will dispose this case than this woman’s fibs about her ignorance of what was happening under her nose. Will justice be manifestly seen to be done, or will it veer off course uncontrollably?
The rakyat are manifestly sure which way true justice should go. If the judge’s verdict differ from the people’s verdict, it may have the effect of marking the benchmark of Malaysian justice under this government.
“Former minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil described in detail in the High Court in Kuala Lumpur today her humiliation at being called ‘cow minister of the year’ by parliamentarian and PKR Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin.”
This does not sound to me like a really strong legal claim or position. She may have felt humiliated. Perhaps deservedly humiliated. But defamation has to do with the effect of the challenged word upon the public view of the person, their reputation and reputability (or entitlement to enjoy a good reputation) – not upon their own tender feelings.
Their wounded feelings only become relevant, if at all, later on when defamation has been established and proved.
Be fair. Shahrizat did not say she knew nothing about the NFC. What she said was she did not know her husband had made a bid for the project. Now, that too is simply unbelievable.
Shahrizat, just return the public funds. At least the people will pardon you for your admission. It’s not your money for you to contest in court to show that your family never discussed with you about buying condos and other investments. The most humiliating thing is to sleep with a man for so many years and you don’t know what he is doing?
It is much more humiliating when we voted for you and BN to help us rakyat but instead you used that special privilege to help yourself and family.
To say you don’t know is unacceptable. Please don’t lie during this month of Ramadan. It’s the holy month and God will not forgive you. Whichever way, you will still pay for it at the doors to heaven.
Surprises need not necessarily be really pricey. What matters the most is your attitude, the way you show your concern and express your love towards your mate. Here are some innovative ideas…
