It sounds like a Bond movie.
Aside, Tomorrow Never Dies starred Michelle Yeoh, and Pierce Brosnan as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond.
But the truth is, no Bond movie could potentially be as scandalous and licentious as the Scorpene story of Malaysia.
The Scorpene story involves plenty of sex, sharing of women between at least two high profile men, corruption of a monumental scale, the sale of highly confidential naval information to the French, the dramatically explosive (no pun intended) murder of a Mongolian woman.
Like I said, no Bond movie could come close to that sort of filth, and Bond movies are generally not known for child-friendly scenes.
Along came SUARAM, who hired French lawyer Joseph Breham to unearth the facts. He came up with a lot of worms. Read a summary of it HERE.
Now the Malaysian officials involved, namely the BN government, are livid with rage as this will no doubt affect the way people vote when they hit the polling booths soon.
The best way to get rid of this mess is to silence SUARAM. And what better way than to harass, intimidate and bully SUARAM with bogus probes.
There was a time when Malaysians could easily be intimidated. A time when the rule was not to rock the boat as long as the economy was going fine.
Times have changed. The “Scorpene Never Dies” Action Team is determined to help SUARAM keep the Scorpene issue afloat and to get the Najib administration to stop its obviously politically-motivated investigation against SUARAM.
A candlelight vigil is on:
Date: 25 Sept 2012 (Tuesday)
Venue: Dataran Merdeka
As usual, the authorities will deem it illegal.
As if anyone cares. Malaysians who care about their country will be there.
