Differing views by Opposition

Wednesday September 26, 2007


KUALA LUMPUR: Opposition parties are split in their views over the formation of a special independent panel to probe the authenticity of the video clip showing a senior lawyer allegedly brokering judges’ appointment.

PAS secretary-general Datuk Kamaruddin Jaafar said PAS welcomed the panel formation but wanted it to be given full powers to summon anyone including those alleged with the misconduct, witnesses and suppliers of the video tape.

“It shouldn’t be a difficult task establishing the authenticity of the video tape with the availability of information technology and checks can be made with the telecommunication companies,” he said.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced the formation of the panel yesterday.

Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang said the formation of the panel was an unacceptable move as it fell short of what should be done.

He said a Royal Commission of Inquiry should instead be formed to conduct a full and comprehensive investigation to restore public confidence in the judiciary.
Parti Keadilan Rakyat agrees with DAP, saying that a Cabinet-appointed panel was insufficient.

“A Cabinet-appointed panel with no actual legal power to do investigation lacks the ability to properly investigate the scandals exposed by the video or the video itself,” said its president Datin Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail in a statement yesterday.

Even on this particular effort done by the Government, opposition were differed by views. Guess how they will rule our nation if they `ever win` our next general election. Looks like they just love to complaint about this and that and never or even once tried to work with the Government is cohesive and positive manner.
