FORMER Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in his latest blog entitled “Telur Di Hujung Tanduk” update alleged Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin’s future depended on the freedom of six Umno members of parliament facing graft charges.
Led by Dr Mahathir’s main adversary Najib Razak, Muhyiddin’s fate would depend on Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Baling MP Azeez Rahim, Putrajaya MP Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, Pontian MP Ahmad Maslan and Kinabatangan MP Bung Moktar Radin walking free as well, he wrote.
“When Muhyiddin planned to accept Umno and Najib as partners in the new party, he promised he would not touch Najib’s court proceedings and the other cases on trial involving several Umno leaders. The trials would continue,” Dr Mahathir wrote.
“Right now, the number of MPs who support Muhyiddin is only 114, which is three more than half (111 MPs). Should six of these people be found guilty in court, they are no longer members of parliament. Muhyiddin would be left with the support of 108 – which is less than half. Thus Muhyiddin’s government would fall,” Dr Mahathir wrote.
“This is why Muhyiddin will ensure these six members of parliament would not be found guilty.”
Dr Mahathir alluded to the release of Najib’s stepson Riza Aziz, whose RM1.2 billion graft charges were dismissed not amounting to acquittal (DNAA), and last week former Sabah chief minister Musa Aman whose 46 charges for money laundering were dropped, as signs of things to come.
“For sure these six will be found not guilty, thus Muhyiddin will be saved. The world would laugh at this backdoor government, seeing how they manipulate the law. The guilty are not guilty. The innocent are guilty.
“The winner will lose and the losers win. Congratulations. The new normal has been invented,” wrote Dr Mahathir on his blog chedet.cc.
