Headache for the New Perak Government

The newly installed BN government in Perak is facing an expected problem. Two of the three 'independent' assemblymen facing corruption charges, Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu and Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi, have failed to turn up for their court's hearing.

The two were charged in a Sessions Court on Aug 25 last year with allegedly receiving bribes over the application for a RM180mil housing project in Sri Iskandar in Perak Tengah.

An arrest warrant is now out against Osman for going AWOL. The two were instrumental in the fall of the PR Perak government. With their support, the BN was able wrest power in the state.

However, I have said earlier that this new government which was formed primarily on the support of the three 'independent' assemblymen is not stable.

Failing both democracy and morality test, the best way forward is to dissolve the state assembly to allow for snap elections. Ultimately, a government must be supported by the people.

Funny, the two assemblymen looked healthy when they turned up at Putrajaya to support Najib and the BN. None of the three assemblymen appeared on the state exco list today. Looks like Hee Yit Foong may have to wait a bit longer for her Toyota Camry.

BN is taking a great risk to appoint the three as state excos. This is the main reason why the coalition has continued to fish for more defectors.

Poaching for new ADUNs to jump? Seriously, I think they should spend more time to look into the economy which BN has continously failing. Take the example of Nizar or even Guan Eng or even Kedah MB - they spend more time talking to investors and that is what I call real leaders.

No need worry lah. Finance Minister got an ace up his sleeve on how to save falling economy which he will reveal later when he become PM.

But let me let the cat out of the bag. He has got new Malaysian export - Malaysia maids lah.

Yes, our daughters and grand-daughters will work as foreign maids to bring back much needed foreign currency to boost economy. So no worry lah.

I am not sure whether Mohd Osman has the thinking that he would be immune from corruption charges after backing BN as an independent MPs :)

He didn't attend the court hearing because after crossing over, he thought no need to attend anymore mah....

Bright guys like you should join PR to shape a better future for our children.We can't leave it to those money-first BN to keep milking the nation's coffers -where in 10 years' time we would be behind Vietnam competing with Laos and Cambodia.

Do you believe he is sick again? He has a track record of lies since defection. Only a fool will believe him. The 3 FROGS are not trustworthy at all. BN's 28-28 score is only depending on a 3 legged table to take control of Perak. With the missing of one more leg, a table is not at all stable. It will topple any moment.

Not to worry...Osman will be dead soon...and Hee will die in a car crash. The Camry will not save her life. AS for the MCs....next time you hear a doctor bleating about low pay...dont pay attention....for these guys will stoop to any level to issue an MC...

how convenient for the two to suddenly fall sick. and more convenient is for the judge to postpone the hearing to JUne.

these two dudes were just given the death penalty coz once a few more froggies join BN, they will be left to fence for themselves and will be found guilty by a kangaroo court. and for the Hee, she will suffer the same consequence although a few million bucks will soothe her feelings.

Not evil but wishful. I was also thinking along the same line.

It is pure arrogance that they chose not to turn up. Most politicians are low lifes with only self serving agendas.

Agree with you, Khoo, that they looked in the pink of health when they posed with Najib at the Press Conference. Being charitable, I will believe they are sick but millions won't. Let's see if the warrant of arrest will be over turned.

Dear Mr Khoo

Perhaps they overdosed
on newly-received, massive amounts of Vitamin M?
