After the release of the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) report, Wijaya Baru Sdn Bhd, which has been named, immediately made an announcement to sue the Port Klang Authority (PKA) or audit firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, or both.
According to the Art of War, attack is the secret of defense; defense is the planning of an attack.
Attack is to stop you from talking and not to allow truth to be revealed. The one who dares to speak will be the first to be sued.
Years ago, when the PKFZ issue was revealed, I had written many comments on it. Someone sent me a message, warning me that I would receive a legal letter if I did not stop commenting. I would deserved it if I was talking nonsense. However, the recent report showed us the contents of my comments.
The same approach - suing, is being used.
Perhaps they are going to sue Lim Kit Siang next as he is the one who revealed the issue. They could even sue Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as he agreed to release the report.
You can threaten to sue the world but you can never stop the emergence of truth.
Just like ripping the outer layer of an onion, once the smell diffuses through the air and choke the people, it could never be stopped even if you put the onion back together as its enzyme called alliinase has generated sulphenic acid and rearranged into a volatile gas.
It is a matter of all as we are living in the air.
The deficit of a few billion of ringgit, perhaps more than 10 billion ringgit in the future are the taxpayer’s money and the country’s resources. Our children and grandchildren may also have to bear the debt. How could it be nothing to do with us?
They can never stop all people from talking by threatening to sue. Those people who expose, comment and investigate the issue get no interest nor benefit from doing so. There is no necessary to sue.
The people are waiting for the truth to be announced. It is related to the rights of the whole people. They want the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), as well as the government to take follow up actions against those who practice favouritism and are involved in power abuse and corruption.
Sue them; don’t let them threaten to sue us anymore. (By TAY TIAN YAN/ Translated by SOONG PHUI JEE/ Sin Chew Daily)
