Ok, ok, ok.
Ok, Malaysians, in this time of difficulty in cari makan, the concerned citizens now have been gently refused access to acquire a copy of the Lingam Tape Royal Commission inquiry report. I think some people in the government are a bit out of touch with reality of life – how can a normal everyday Malaysian comfortably fork out $541.60 for this book – even if citizens are very, very, very concerned? Somemore have to travel all the way to Legal Affairs Division in PM Dept in Putrajaya to get it. This means only rich, unemployed people can buy such expensive book.
Oi, Mr Zaid Ibrahim, I remember I lobbied for you for ministership (ahem, ahem in cyberworld…) cos I thought you are one having your two ears listening and two feet firmly on the ground in tune with citizens’ concerns.
Come on, make la the inquiry or sections of it available on the internet. If government can make RMK9 available on the internet free for download, make the same la for this inquiry. If government wants to recover some pocket money, can make CD for sale, maybe at RM10 – guarantee you this CD will be hotter than the pirated ones.
This inquiry has potential for far, far, far bigger implications for future of Malaysia. If you, Zaid can do something to make this work, you’ll have a place of honour in Malaysia’s history.
Trust this lobbyist, Mr Zaid.
P/S: Maybe an apology is due to Anwar Ibrahim if he suffered from any law gerrymandering in Lingam’s time…
