NEW STRAITS TIME – SHAMSUL AKMAR: The taming of the Tiger of Jelutong
In 1997, less than a year before Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was sacked as the deputy prime minister and Umno deputy president, Karpal, had publicly declared that he had evidence that the former had committed sodomy.
According to Karpal’s one-time colleague in DAP, Wangsa Maju member of parliament Wee Choo Keong, the former had uttered the allegations against Anwar at a DAP gathering in Federal Hotel.
A lawyer just like Wee, Zaid had described Karpal as an ular (snake), obviously intending to point out that Karpal spoke with forked tongue in the issue of Anwar’s sodomy.
Not to be ignored is MP for Kulim-Bandar Baru, Zulkifli Nordin, another lawyer, who also questioned Karpal’s motives of being a defence counsel for Anwar when he himself had accused Anwar of committing sodomy.
Looking at the list, Karpal’s detractors are not only politicians but they are also trained lawyers. This leads to the question of not only whether Karpal has any moral integrity when he decided to defend Anwar after having publicly accused him of committing the act but also his professional ethics.
The silence on the part of the BAR COUNCIL on Karpal’s antics is deafening, giving credence to the perception that it is sympathetic if not outright supporter of the opposition and NOT JUSTICE.
But, surely, if the counsel had publicly accused his client of a certain crime and then go to court to defend him of the said crime, the counsel would have to first make a public announcement that his earlier accusations were baseless.
And, based on that, he wanted the government, then helmed by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, to act against Anwar. When the government and Dr Mahathir finally acted on Anwar based on those allegations by sacking him, Karpal decided to be the champion to defend Anwar.
Wee Choo Keong – Is it a Tiger with forked tounge? or also known as Whatsap tiger, cat got ur tounge?
Not only YB Karpal Singh was now in full agreement with Tun Dr Mahathir and Tan Sri Rahim Noor but also the majority Judgment of the Federal Court of 02-09-2004. If YB Karpal Singh was in full agreement with the said majority Judgment of the Federal Court, he must also be in full agreement with what YA Dat0 Abdul Hamid bin Hj Mohamed had said in his Lordship’s Judgment :
“we find evidence to confirm that the appellants were involved in homosexual activities and we are more inclined to believe that the alleged incident at Tivoli Villa did happen, sometime,..”
Wee further said, YB Karpal Singh’s letter to NST made my head spun further. DANG! This is real shit or what! HAHAHA
