SAPP endorses “no-confidence”; ACA after YongPosted: June 20, 2008
So… after the meeting, SAPP supreme council has given the “okay” that they will endorse the motion of no confidence against the Prime Minister. Funny thing is, they have decided to remain a member of Barisan Nasional. Which is funny. Because normally, if you make known your dislike for your “company”, or “boss”, you get the heck out, you quit. You don’t stay behind to get grilled right front and center.
But that’s what they’ve decided to do.
And I reckon that the government works in mysterious ways. How coincidental is it that two days after Yong Teck Lee announces that he and his party will support a motion of no confidence against Pak Lah, the ACA reports that they will carry out queries on Yong Teck Lee over some RM 5 million that was allegedly paid to his agents over sales of something state-owned.
KUALA LUMPUR, June 20 — In a quick turn of events, the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) announced today it will question Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Yong Teck Lee over the payment of RM5 million to his agents from proceeds of the sale of shares from a state-owned company.
The Star newspaper, in a text message news alert, reported that the ACA will question Yong over the allegations by a witness in a Borneo High Court yesterday who claimed the former Sabah chief minister had ordered the payment to his agents in 1996.

This was something that happened way back in 1996. And they just decided on the case NOW?
I don’t believe in coincidences like this. I believe, and this is my personal opinion, that when you say something bad about the government, you automatically lose any “favour”, and immediately anything that was previously swept under the rug would be uprooted and lay bare for all.
Either that, or the ACA seriously has a very VERY slow work ethic. Took them 12 years to sort this out.
