DAP’s advisor, Lim Kit Siang, has appealed to the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib to stop the trial of Anwar Ibrahim on sodomy charges which will not only open Malaysia to the international court of public opinion but will also remind Malaysians that they cannot expect anything from Najib whose administration appears to closely follow Mahathir’s style of leadership.

Those that agree with Lim Kit Siang raise your hands !

If Najib listens to Lim Kit Siang’s advice, will it not expose Malaysia to the international opinion that our judicial process and justice system are not actually free but can be manipulated and arbitrarily determined by the prime minister himself. Then Lim Kit Siang will shout and scream that our government is dictatorial and undemocratic.

When it comes to matters relating to his own personal interest and that of his party, Lim Kit Siang conveniently forgets his own principles which he has always voiced out vociferously .. This is hypocrisy at its worst !

Lim Kit Siang has chosen not to remember that Anwar has tried various means to delay his trial even from two years ago. In fact his latest effort was to get all the charges against him dropped.

Is this an act to uphold the dignity of Malaysia or is it actually an effort to safeguard his own dignity or that of Pakatan Rakyat, the DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat ? Will this trial somewhat diminish or erode the morale of Lim Kit Siang who has always aspired to possess the image of Lee Kuan Yew, the former Prime Minister of Singapore, in the context of firmness and morality ? But then Lim had already associated himself with those party members connected to scandals, corruption, deceit and lies. ( His close friend Raja Petra is presently in hiding )

If Lim Kit Siang himself feels ashamed and remorsed at his party’s connection with Anwar Ibrahim, then do not proclaim that the country is on trial but rather it is the people of Malaysia that are judging Pakatan Rakyat itself !

Maharaja would like to know how many actually agree with Lim Kit Siang’s suggestion that Anwar’s trial be put off ?
