The prime minister said the people should not believe the claims made by the blogger who has fled the country to London.
“If Raja Petra is funded by the opposition, it means that his statements are politically-motivated. We should weigh them carefully and not merely accepting them,” he told reporters after opening the Pekan Umno meeting here today.
He was asked to comment on the statement by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz yesterday that the government had proofs that Raja Petra was funded by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).
This morning, I was in a pretty sarcastic mood before work stress kicked in from late morning onwards until 8 p.m, today, I got up very early and I couldn't go back to bed - that was at around 3 a.m and reading that thing has given me a feel good that what was written could be a truth behind the text. Although it doesn't really mentioned directly about Altantuya but instead smacks at Pete, but by from reputation and having relished the chance to meet him a few times before his exile, I can say that whatever is written is hot, is from the trench.
No UMNO-owned media would usually dare to publish such revelations - and backed by leaked letters for the fear of witchhunt by Cousin Hisham's ministry and making those who walk the corridors of power running helter skelter over that thing. Those secrets were supposed to be hush hush and no public person would know that, except for insiders.
If Ustaz Mongolia says "Jangan percaya", then Pete hits back, "Then who do we trust?" And to add more chastisement to Najib, Khairy added another dose of hurt - why didn't the police act on Pete? If you remember back then, there seems to be a split between Musa Hassan's faction and the Ramli Yusuff's faction - which could be still on then. But the question of why by Khairy can be answered in form of Zaid's response.
Sarcastically, I must say that whoever from Yong Soo Heong-led news agency - National News Agency, no more no less - that wrote that piece above has done the people an accidental good service: which is that Najib has shot himself on the foot with that statement.
And the statement interestingly reveals something that we should know by now: what was claimed to be a denial on Altantuya was actually wrong and there is such thing as an affair. And since those things including the coverage of RPK in London all points to Altantuya at the very end, it seems that there the First couple, particularly Bik Mama, are getting restless as the day grows by - they were really involved.
And I was smiling to myself that whole morning.
