Mat Zain: Musa, Gani duped Dr M into sacking Anwar – by Shannon Teoh September 12, 2011 Dr Mahathir previously said he was not initially convinced of the allegations against Anwar. Sept 12
A former senior police officer today claimed that Tan Sri Musa Hassan and Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail had fabricated evidence against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, leading to his sacking from government by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in 1998. Former city criminal investigation chief Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim claimed in an open letter to the Inspector-General of Police today that Musa, who was then Bukit Aman’s assistant criminal investigation chief, had stolen Anwar’s DNA to ensure that the sacked deputy prime minister would be convicted of sodomy. “I believe this happened because Tun was given information or a briefing that was manipulated and misleading,” said the policeman who led the 1998 probe into the black eye inflicted on Anwar by then police chief Tan Sri Rahim Noor. Mat Zain based his claim on “documentary evidence and statements that I have and are within my knowledge” as well as Dr Mahathir’s memoirs that were released earlier this year. The former prime minister had said that although he doubted claims that Anwar had committed sodomy, Rahim and Musa, who was the investigating officer, had told him that they had evidence and confessions from those involved. But Mat Zain noted that according to testimony by Hospital Kuala Lumpur doctor Dr Zahari Noor, Musa, who later rose through the ranks to become Inspector-General of Police, had “stolen” Anwar’s blood samples on October 15, 1998. “But at that point, Anwar was already charged in court and waiting for a hearing date. The process of gathering evidence should have been completed by then. “Musa owes the public an explanation as to what he briefed Tun Mahathir on, to the point the former prime minister was convinced that Anwar was involved in adultery and homosexuality,” he wrote. Mat Zain also pointed out that as current Attorney-General Abdul Gani was the prosecuting officer in the sodomy case, Musa’s actions “were under the orders and/or supervision of Gani Patail.” He also accused Musa and Abdul Gani of fabricating the case for their joint benefit but insisted that Dr Mahathir himself was not involved as he had repeatedly told the police, including Mat Zain during his investigations into the black eye incident, that there should be no cover up. The former police officer has repeatedly attacked Abdul Gani in recent months, calling on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to sack the A-G for failing to initiate charges in high-profile cases such as the death of DAP aide Teoh Beng Hock while being held by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission. He has also called for a royal panel to investigate Abdul Gani’s role in destroying public confidence in the police.

Smokescreen propaganda article. This simple article cannot hide dozens of policy indiscrepancies. Take Vehicular AP or Toll Concessions for instance or Forced Military Conscriptions. No way these could affect us if dr.Evil who was PM read the bills carefully those bills before approving. So shall we say he was careless and neglectful and no stateman at all? This also could indict these 2 characters and colluders mentioned here in fact. Bad article with bad intent backfires on itself.
Thursday, 22 September 2011 22:22 Mahathir ticks off “disgusting BN”: No amount of money is enough Written by Malaysia Chronicle
Change your image and do not flash your wealth in order to change the perception that the ruling coalition is corrupt, former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad told BN leaders today. Addressing 400 of them in Kuala Selangor, including BN elected representatives, the veteran leader said the coalition would otherwise continue to be perceived as “disgusting”. “I find that many view (BN) as disgusting and that they openly state their rejection of the BN. “If we analyse this, we find this is because we no longer struggle to form the government, but to reap personal benefits,” Mahathir said. Besides flashing their wealth by suddenly building “RM7 or RM8 million houses”, which they previously could not afford, elected representatives also felt the need to “buy support”. Speaking at a BN State Assembly Backbenchers Club event, Mahathir said BN representatives said they needed to “get contracts and raise their income” as “their supporters demand money”. ‘To be popular, one buys people’ “To be popular, one buys people, but no amount of money is enough… and in the end, the society becomes corrupt. “The society then views Umno and other component parties (as) corrupt as the leaders got to where they are because of money,” he said.
A total of 240 BN elected representatives are in Kuala Selangor until Friday as part of BN’s plans to wrest power from Pakatan Rakyat in Selangor. Earlier, BN State Assembly Backbenchers Club president Nadzri Ismail said the representatives would stay with 300 families during the three-day retreat in an effort to “put the people first” and “be close to the rakyat”. Lauding this effort, Mahathir said, however, that sincerity might be lacking if the elected representatives went into the kampung in their luxury cars. “For example, there was a BN candidate who went to a kampung in his Mercedes Benz to look for the constituency that he was selected to contest in. He didn’t win,” he said in driving this point across. More parachute candidates needed Separately, in answering a question from former Perlis Menteri Besar Shahidan Kassim, the elder statesperson said the present situation called for more BN “parachute candidates”, although the approach must not be used on a wide scale. “Parachute candidates are needed to introduce changes to the party, like (former Finance Minister) Daim (Zainuddin), who was not too keen about politics but needed to get into the Dewan Rakyat. “So we asked the person in Merbok to step aside for (Daim), who wasn’t even from Merbok, but whose abilities were much needed. “There is a need for more parachute candidates now, so people with abilities can be in government and the cabinet, since there always are complaints that ministers don’t know much,” Mahathir said. He also reiterated his often made call for BN leaders to stop sabotaging one another during elections, simply because personal ambitions could not always be met. “(Prime Minister) Najib (Abdul Razak) said he will choose winnable candidates, but we may feel the candidate he choses is ‘unwinnable’ because we are the only ones who are winnable. So we make sure that candidate does not win, to prove that the leadership is wrong,” he said. He then called on all the elected representatives to be prepared if they are not selected this time around, even though most elected representatives “don’t want to quit (because) the pension is lower than the allowance”. “Most think they’re the most winnable candidates. This mindset needs to change from the start. Your responsibility is to be prepared not to be selected as a candidate,” Mahathir added.
