PKFZ scandal: Ex-transport minister Ling charged
(Malaysiakini)Jul 29, 10
"Ex-transport minister Ling Liong Sik was today charged in the Putrajaya Sessions Court over his involvement in the multi-billion ringgit Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal.
Former transport minister Ling Liong Sik pleaded not guilty to two charges of cheating and bail was set at RM1 million."
Few days ago, while I was still reading the news from Malaysiakini, I received this sms from +60122100609 at 17:24:"Dr.Ling Liong Sik of M'sia Cibby Association charged over PKFZ scandal. Charge is one thing....being persecuted is another .... let's see if this is just another wayang kulit by corrupt to the core BN govt, Tun Ling will be free without his defense being called after GE-13."
While most people are anxiously reading the above news, the SMS war by WHOEVER has started. As I read the message, few thoughts crop up:
1st, WHOEVER sent this out, he/she is either Pakatan member or supporter; I have been receiving messages from the above number whenever there is opportunity to 'hantam' or ridicule MCA. It may comes from an organised secretariat; because the message came soon after the case was charged at 4.20pm & it must have gone to hundreds & thousand of phone numbers. This is a SMS war.
2nd, If the message reflect the thought of people on the street, the judiciary is under watchful eyes & has to be impartial as it has set up to be.
3rd, If the sms managed to 'brainwash' the recipients, then it has successfully casted doubt on the present judiciary system.
4th, But at the same time, it is so dangerous to plant doubts & hatred in one's mind just to achieve some undisclosed goals, this may soon become an epidemic disease.
5th, PKFZ issue involved public interest & has 'haunted' many minds for a long time, the rakyat are anxious to know the truth.
Let the case be heard, Don't make assumption !! Don't jump into conclusion !!
