Another Spectacular Scandal Being Exposed!

From the Desk of former DPM, now PKR de facto head, Sdr Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim @http://anwaribrahimblog.com/



Kenyataan oleh Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim
Berkenaan Skandal Video VK Lingam


Rakaman video ini melibatkan pejabat
kehakiman tertinggi dalam konspirasi
untuk mempengaruhi perjalanan sistem
keadilan negara melalui campurtangan
seorang peguam yang penuh dengan
kontroversi dari sejarah penglibatannya
dalam perkara yang menimbulkan syak
wasangka dan seterusnya membawa kepada
skandal yang melibatkan perlantikan
hakim-hakim negara.

Pada tahun 1994, satu gambar menunjukkan
VK Lingam dan Ketua Hakim Negara ketika
itu Tun Eusoffe Chin cuti bersama di New
Zealand dalam situasi yang melampaui
tatasusila professional seorang peguam
dan lebih serius lagi pengendalian yang
tidak beretika Ketua Hakim tersebut.
Lingam juga terlibat dalam laporan audit
skandal Perwaja Steel oleh
PriceWaterhouseCoopers yang dibentangkan
di Parlimen yang melibatkan kerugian
berbillion ringgit wang rakyat.

Dalam video ini, Lingam dirakam
berbicara dengan Ketua Hakim Negara, Tun
Ahmad Fairuz Abdul Halim di mana nama
saya, antara lain, disebut secara khusus.

Berbicaraan tersebut adalah dalam
konteks konspirasi untuk mempengaruhi
lantikan hakim kanan dan campurtangan
badan kehakiman. Oleh itu, kami
mempunyai sebab kukuh dan percaya bahawa
perbualan pada tahun 2002 ini menentukan
hasil beberapa perbicaraan mahkamah
penting, termasuk kes saya.

Video ini juga melibatkan Vincent Tan
dan Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor. Vincent
Tan adalah seorang ahli perniagaan dan
jutawan judi yang dikatakan terlibat
mempengaruhi proses kehakimam dalam kes
Ayer Molek. Tengku Adnan pula adalah
pemimpin UMNO dan ahli kabinet yang
terlibat dalam konspirasi politik untuk
menjatuhkan saya pada tahun 1998.

Skandal video ini mengukuhkan dakwaan
kami mengenai konspirasi politik yang
melibatkan pemimpin tertinggi negara dan
korupsi oleh ketua badan kehakiman. Ini
membangkitkan isu mengenai hilangnya
kesaksamaan perbicaraan mahkamah di
negara ini. Perkara ini perlu disiasat
segera demi kepentingan awam dan kami
menggesa supaya satu Tribunal Bebas
dibentuk segera untuk menyiasat hal yang
amat memalukan ini.

Dalam hal ini, kami membuat rayuan khas
kepada majlis raja-raja untuk memainkan
peranan seperti yang termaktub dalam
perlembagaan untuk membela hak rakyat
dengan menggunakan pengaruh dalam
hal-hal yang berada dalam bidang kuasa
mereka.

From The Star, Sept 20, 2007:

Fixing of judges’ appointments videotaped

Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) has released a video recording it obtained recently implicating a prominent lawyer purportedly brokering the appointment of judges.

The video clip shows the lawyer on the phone, seen and heard talking to someone who appears to be a very senior judge.

The shaky video with clear audio seems to have been recorded with a mobile phone without the knowledge of the lawyer.

Speaking at a press conference, PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the video was taken in 2002 when the judge concerned was already in a high post.

He said the video had come into PKR’s possession only “very recently”, when a source who wanted to remain anonymous came forward and gave it to the party.

“I have met him (the source). But he wants to remain anonymous to protect his position and for security reasons,” he added.

Anwar said the source had disclosed that the video was taken at the lawyer’s home.
The video shows the lawyer talking about how he had supposedly helped get the judge appointed to the top judiciary posts through a prominent businessman and a politician, both of whom were close to the then Prime Minister.

The lawyer also speaks about how he was working through the same two contacts to get the judge elevated to higher positions.

The lawyer also named a number of prominent judges in the video.

The video is 14 minutes and 16 seconds long but PKR edited it to 8 minutes and 26 seconds to protect the identity of the source.

Anwar said PKR vice-president R. Sivarasa, who is also a lawyer, would lodge a report on the matter with the Anti-Corruption Agency and Bar Council as soon as possible, with the videotape as evidence.

He also said PKR president Datin Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail would seek an audience with the Conference of Rulers on the matter.

Members of the media were also given copies of the edited videotape and the transcript. When contacted, Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail said he and his officers had viewed the video clip, reports SHAILA KOSHY. "We are studying it at the moment. I will reserve my comments until then on what we will do.”

Bar Council president Ambiga Sreenevasan said they were appalled and disturbed by the clip, which “shows a lawyer apparently ‘fixing’ judicial appointments with a senior judge”. She said there would be an emergency council meeting tomorrow. She also called for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the matter.

DESI: The highlights (thus BOLDED) are awe mine, Desi's.
