have been asked by the media and commentators in my blog as to whether
I would quit as adviser to Petronas following my quitting as an UMNO
I would like to believe it is not exclusive to UMNO members.
to my being adviser, the post was held by Tun Hussein Onn who was
appointed by me following his resignation as Prime Minister. When UMNO
was made illegal and UMNO Baru was formed Tun Hussein remained outside
the party but this did not affect his position in Petronas. He remained
Petronas adviser until he passed away.
I have stated before I have no intention of quitting. It is ridiculous
if all advisorial appointments subject the appointee to saying only the
things that please the Government.
The Government is free to remove me from this position as it sees fit.
Dr M threatened judges
the New Straits Times and the Star today chose to splash Justice Dato
Ian Chin’s “stunning” claims of my alleged interference in the
judiciary, providing brief respite from the current issues of oil price
hike etc etc
I will refrain from commenting for now and will do so in due time.
I am quite curious about what Ian Chin considers as “veiled threat”.
Perhaps he could be more specific as his allegations are very serious.
