LUCRATIVE MINISTERS

Malaysian Foreign Minister Anifah Aman press remarks in Washington is a big joke and an embarrassment to the country!

Out of no where he suddenly blurted out the story of the Prime Minister Najib Razak’s involvement in the Mongolian murder when nobody ask him and it was not a subject matter at all with the press when it was all about Ang San Su Kyi of Burma the current news of the day.

And the best part is that he announces to the world that he has been offered a very lucrative post of Deputy Prime Minister by Anwar Ibrahim and called it a “VERY LUCRATIVE” position and there you go… all these umno guys thinks about is money and to him the position of deputy prime minister is very lucrative! Anyway dream on Mr Foreign Minister, you are not even close to ministerial material and you fancy a "lucrative" post of deputy prime minister?

Mr Foreign Minister if you could allow me to educate you a little bit, first and foremost the word lucrative means profitable and money making. Secondly any position of ministership is a position of responsibility and integrity and the appointment is to serve the people and the nation and not about getting rich or money. With Ministers like this Najib don’t need enemies.

All that the reporter from Reuters Mr Mohammed’s question was whether Secretary Hilary Clinton raised the issue of Anwar’s case of sodomy is politically motivated with the foreign minister in the meeting and there goes as when they hear the name “Anwar” the minister lost all bearings and was unable to focus on the question at hand.
I cant understand what he is driving at and see if you can as the Q&A below.

Below is an extract of the question and answer;

Mohammed from Reuters;

QUESTION:
Secretary Clinton, Opposition leader – or opposition figure Anwar Ibrahim faces charges again, and I believe a trial later this summer, on charges that the State Department itself in the annual human rights report said are politically motivated. Did you raise his case specifically in your meeting today?

And, Mr. Minister, if you would care to comment on that case and specifically on the American position that the charges against Mr. Ibrahim are politically motivated.

ANSWERS:
SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, we raised rule of law issues and the larger questions concerning the institutional reforms that Malaysia has been pursuing. We’re on record as to our opinion as to that particular case, and I think that speaks for itself.

FOREIGN MINISTER ANIFAH: I’d like to address the comment on Anwar Ibrahim. You know, we have utmost faith in our judicial system (I don't know and who is we? Certainly not me and with all my friends). And recently, as late as a few days ago, the court has declared that the chief minister of a particular state which comes from the opposition as election of a chief minister which is a rulings against the government (What???). And insofar as Anwar Ibrahim is concerned, (inaudible) he – we know him very, very well (Does he?). And he has – more or less, what he has said, especially overseas, most of the things are untrue; for example, like the involvement of our honorable prime minister and the murder of a Mongolian citizen. And he has repeatedly said before the elections that he will provide evidence and yet, until today, he has not given anything. (Did Anwar said that? And how to provide evidence when so many Statutory Declaration by witnesses all went missing and the use of the internal security act on RPK in order to silence him.)

And also just for the information of the audience here that, you know, he also said that he will form a government on 16 September and he has changed the dates many time. And he was trying to entice the members of parliament. And I was personally offered to jump into the oppositions and offered a very lucrative position ($$$), and also to be told it’s like a deputy prime minister (In your dreams). And these are not known to the world at large. And he has started, you know, trying to buy into other, you know, legislative members (I don't know?). And I think what he is doing – he has not accepted the result of what – the last elections. And we have lost five states and we willingly and accept the people’s verdict. And all the time we leave it to the people to decide, and which, on the other hand has not been able to accept (What gibberish..).


And it’s also my concern and that of our government that it is what he has been doing overseas to tarnish the image of Malaysia, which impinge trade and indirectly and directly, you know (Still I don't know), bring hardship to the people of Malaysia, which he said he’s very, very concerned about. And therefore, it is our wish and hope that he will respect the democratic system in Malaysia, which is very open and which, I think, we have conformed to the wish of the people (The people says No to ISA). And we have repeatedly told him that if he believes that he is the rightful prime minister, or his party has been sidetracked, then it is – wait for the next election. And he has continuously gave wrong impressions and accused all the government officials of being corrupted, which is part and parcel of the system (inaudible) (OK.. do you mean to say that corruption is part and parcel of the system?). And the people have rejected him in Malaysia, and is a proof that he has not been able to accept. (Er..? The people of peninsular Malaysia or West Malaysia which is the majority of people in Malaysia have actually rejected Barisan National and UMNO who have only managed to garner 47% or more accurately less than 50% of the popular vote in the peninsular)

What minister ??? Is he speaking a foreign language?
