Nazri: Protect video clip witnesses

KUALA LUMPUR: Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz will ask the cabinet to provide protection for the people behind the recording of the Datuk V. K. Lingam video clip.

“Without their co-operation, how can we attest to the recording’s authenticity? Every effort should be made to give them the protection and assurance that they require,” he said.

Nazri said the necessary protection could be provided by the government and he would present a strong case for it at today’s cabinet meeting.

“I am sure this can be done,” he said.

“I strongly believe we have to accord the panel the support it needs and that is why we have to give protection to the witnesses.

“The panel’s investigation will not be able to progress if the protection is not provided. We will not then be able to get to the bottom of this. The panel will be rendered useless,” he said.

– quoted from an article published in NST on 10th October 2007 (link)

Its amusing that Nazri tries to make himself look good by championing the cause of getting protection for the witness (I know he said witnesses, but we all know he’s talking about Whistle Blower).

BUT then he throws in that last line saying that the panel will not be able to proceed with their investigation if protection to the witness is not given the witness does not come forward.

What’s all this ‘we’ stuff anyway? He’s just trying to cover up after making a complete fool of himself on Sunday.

Its getting very boring reading your lures in the paper sir.
