Bolehland's WTF moments....

Case 1

The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department told The Malaysian Insider that his directive ordering all government-linked companies to withdraw their suits against Tajuddin earlier this month was merely to buy time for all concerned parties to reach a “win-win” agreement and put an end to the prolonged financial saga involving Tajuddin.The Malaysian Insider reported this morning that Putrajaya, through Nazri’s letter, had directed all GLCs, including MAS and the national debt restructuring company Danaharta, to cease all civil suits against Tajuddin, the former chairman of the national carrier and protégé of Tun Daim Zainuddin.
“Since it involved the law and I am the minister in charge of law, Husni told me, why don’t you look into this. It is not a cloak and dagger move ... we knew this would come out somehow and there is nothing to hide. I wrote that letter using my letterhead,” said Nazri.
It was therefore not compulsory for the companies to settle their suit, but it was conveyed to them that it was advisable, given the possible scenarios the new situation had presented, said Nazri.


Case 2

KUALA LUMPUR: The Selangor Islamic Affairs Department's (Jais) decision to raid a multi-racial dinner at the Damansara Utama Methodist Church's Dream Centre should not be politicised or blown out of proportion, said Muslim groups.

Jais director Marzuki Hussin added in a statement today that Jais officers did not interrupt the event and only inspected the venue after the dinner had ended.

“Accusations that Jais raided, used force and trespassed are wild accusations,” he said, adding that no arrests were made even though he claimed that it was within Jais’s legal bounds to do so.
