Nazri: Govt will help ‘video clip’ probe panel

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 10, 2007): The government has assured the three-man panel looking into the authenticity of a video clip showing a senior lawyer discussing the appointment of top judges over the phone of its assistance in the event of any problem it may encounter in its task.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz said the Cabinet at its weekly meeting today discussed the difficulties facing by them in their task.

Nazri said he was also puzzled as to why Parti Keadilan Rakyat vice-president R. Sivarasa and political co-coordinator Sim Tze Tzin were reluctant to present themselves before the Anti Corruption Agency (ACA) to provide evidence and reveal the identity of the whistle blowers in the video clip issue.

“I can’t understand why he does not want to cooperate now,” he said, adding that Sivarasa and PKR should be happy that following the making public of the video clip, the panel was set up to look into their allegations.

“The panel was set up to look into their complaint. Why should they not cooperate now? he asked.

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

There Nazri goes contradicting himself again – it has been made quite clear that the panel was formed to look into the authenticity of the video, with ‘authenticity’ meaning confirmation that the person in the video is VK Lingam and the video was not digitally manipulated.

The panel is not looking into the allegations at all! What rubbish. On the plus side it has inspired me to start a comic strip :
