On Nov 8, the NST reported Zaki as saying “it took me six months to be nice, bribe each and every individual to get back into their good books... and I am telling this to all clerks and all the registries to stop this nonsense.”
The NST is of course the country’s main English Newspaper. It is owned by the government. Zaki is the newly appointed Chief Justice of Malaya. The numero uno of the Judiciary. Karpal Singh is a prominent DAP leader.
The DAP stalwart, Karpal Singh has demanded the CJ to resign for lying over the above remarks. The CJ said he never said those things above. Karpal said not only the judge said it, but was recorded to have said it. Wow- talk about the reversal of ‘not only justice must be done, it must be seen to be done’.
Sakmongkol is not trained in the law. But the CJ should resign not only for lying but worse of all for actually bribing. Or, perhaps the CJ is humouring us with some legal semantic or gymnastics- admitting he did all those transgressions, is actually a virtue? He is being HONEST and knowing that whatever he says will be used against shim in the court of law? So Mr. Karpal,can a person be lying and honest at the same time? Is this an oxymoron? And honest liar?
Sakmongol calls upon the CJ to list down the names of all the clerks and registrars he knows he has bribed. And please define the term nice. Does being nice include sharing some glasses of Martini? Going over to some Dangdut joints? Handing out some expensive Habana Cigars? Davidoff perhaps?
Then, do these people actually maintain a set of books? One for actually recording shenanigans? The other for public show? Maybe in the style of Heidi Hess?
