That still does not put The Edge in the clear

Are we really trying to seek the truth or are we trying to delay getting to the truth? While The Edge attempts to present itself as doing things in good faith, this action demonstrates mala fide rather than bona fide. And why is The Edge suddenly trying to play ‘good citizen’ when it has thus far been motivated by sheer politics and nothing but politics? Malaysia Today’s Raja Petra Kamarudin writes to share ..

TheEdge-cover_Jul12-e1367315502257-700x419In explaining its actions, The Edge said, “We could do one of two things. Drop the matter like a hot potato and walk away, or get hold of everything so that the truth can be uncovered. We decided we had to pursue the truth.”

The Sabah State Assembly Speaker, Salleh Said Keruak, responded to that by saying, “There is actually a third alternative. And that is to report the matter to the authorities and hand over the evidence. That, The Edge did not do. And by not reporting what they viewed as a crime means The Edge itself had committed a crime. So under these circumstances you cannot claim to be a whistleblower and demand protection that a whistleblower would get.”

Why did The Edge not report this matter and hand over the evidence to PDRM or MACC? Why go public with it without doing the legal thing, which is to report a crime, as the law requires? Now it appears like The Edge is merely embarking on damage control by trying to justify its actions and by giving excuses for its mistake. This is locking the barn door after the horse has bolted.

Ho Kay Tat has not explained an even more crucial thing. And this is who ordered him to hand the evidence to the Special Task Force? And why only on the second day did he hand a set to the police? Are the two sets identical or duplicates or are they different? Who then is going to conduct the forensic test to determine the authenticity of the evidence?

Instead of clearing up the confusion, even more confusion is being created. And this does not serve, as The Edge explained it, the pursuit of the truth. Too much time is being wasted on this matter, and which is taking the country nowhere, whereas there are even more pressing issues that need the government’s attention.

Are we really trying to seek the truth or are we trying to delay getting to the truth? While The Edge attempts to present itself as doing things in good faith, this action demonstrates mala fide rather than bona fide. And why is The Edge suddenly trying to play ‘good citizen’ when it has thus far been motivated by sheer politics and nothing but politics?
