TTF: The more the arrests, the bigger the lies.
That’s how it works with Lim Guan Eng, who once alleged that the charges preferred against him in the bungalow-for-land scam controversy was the doing of Barisan Nasional. Today, the same Guan Eng is accusing the ruling coalition of staging the whole tunnel controversy to burry him deep undersea.
Yes, it wouldn’t matter if you start flashing documents or cite excerpts of media statements by the Chief Minister to prove he contradicts himself. Not only will he call you a liar, he’ll even threaten to sue you just to impress upon Malaysians that he’s innocent. While he’s at it, he’ll cook up a very impressive story to explain just why he’s the infallible leader of the many.
So it wouldn’t matter if The Third Force, Raja Petra Kamarudin, Lim Sian See, Eric See-To or even God Himself exposed the extent of corruption under his administration. Regardless if it is the illegal factory in Kampung Sungai Lembu or the landslide at Tanjung Bungah, the Chief Minister will tell you that everything negative written about him is the doing of Barisan Nasional.
Yes, he’s got a guidebook titled “How to Bullshxt Tokong style.” Thank’s to the book, he can turn entire hillslopes into flat terrains or even get Prof Ramasamy to give National Geographic styled lessons on “the concept of flat Hillslopes.” Seriously, nothing is impossible with Tokong Lim Guan Eng.
Nothing, except the bars of a prison cell which he somehow seems to fear. According to a well placed source, the Chief Minister told an aide that there “is nothing to look forward to since I’m going to jail anyway.” That probably explains why he’s slandering Barisan Nasional. He needs Pakatan Harapan to win GE14 so that Mahathir can keep him from becoming Anwar Ibrahim’s cellmate in Sungai Buloh.
Once Pakatan wins, he will enter an agreement with Syarikat Putar Belit Sdn Bhd to build an underground tunnel linking Jalan Pinhorn in Penang to Mahathir’s new office in Putrajaya. The RM6.3 trillion project will probably involve consultants from Syarikat Kepala Hotak Hang Sdn Bhd who will conduct feasibility studies before presenting a three page report at a cost of RM220billion by the year 2030.
KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has detained a third suspect in its investigation on alleged corrupt dealings over the Penang undersea tunnel project.
The suspect, a 50 year-old senior female consultant engineer, was involved in the project’s research works, and was detained when she arrived at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya, at 6.10 pm today.
A source familiar with the investigation said that that the suspect is believed to have been involved in issuing fake claims to the Penang government with regards to the feasibility study of three main roads and a tunnel in Penang valued at RM305 million.
The source said that MACC is also on the prowl for others who are involved in faking the documents.
MACC’s Deputy Commissioner (Operations) Datuk Azam Baki confirmed that arrest of the latest suspect, but refused to divulge further information.
A total of three individuals have been arrested so far in connection to the ongoing investigation.
Previously, a chairman and a deputy chairman from two different companies were remanded for 10 days beginning January 10 to facilitate investigations into the RM6.3 billion undersea tunnel project.
The two have since been released on a RM200,000 bail last Saturday.
