‘You can­not con­tinue to be judge, jury or ex­e­cu­tioner’

New Straits Times - - News - >>

I don’t think Malaysians in their right mind will want to just give up on that is­sue of the pay­ment.

This is why we are seek­ing ar­bi­tra­tion to re­solve the mat­ter. This process too will take time.

As for the crim­i­nal ac­tions that you have been clam­our­ing for, in time, should any fur­ther solid proof sur­face, I can as­sure you that our jus­tice sys­tem will take care of it.

Af­ter all, in crim­i­nal cases, as you are well aware, there is no dead­line for pros­e­cu­tion and there is no time bar. That is why the forex losses scan­dal comes un­der the spot­light now.

Pua, you need to re­alise that you are fore­most, a law­maker, a mem­ber of par­lia­ment. You can­not con­tinue to be judge, jury or ex­e­cu­tioner or all of them in one. Though I am a ju­nior in com­par­i­son to your ten­ure as MP, your be­hav­iour in re­spect of the en­tire af­fair does not fit that of a law­maker. The spec­ta­cle of name-call­ing, not only to­wards me but to­wards other mem­bers of the ad­min­is­tra­tion as well, is noth­ing less than em­bar­rass­ing and de­mean­ing to your stand­ing as a mem­ber of par­lia­ment.

Give it a rest. I am sure that the folks of Petaling Jaya Utara elected you as their MP to do bet­ter things than just be­ing ob­sessed with 1MDB.

Pua, what­ever you may call it — bailout, rescue or what­ever — the pri­mary con­cern is to re­solve the 1MDB is­sue, mit­i­gate the losses, limit the li­a­bil­ity of the gov­ern­ment and re­duce the im­pact of 1MDB to our econ­omy and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.
