The trail. Blogger Penarik Beca has left in my previous posting The RM5 million man a chronology for the Johari Baharum scandal and I'm publishing it here just in case you don't get to read it in the mainstream media.
The blogger said it all started here with the allegation that Jo had helped three hard-core criminals secure their release from detention. Jo has admitted releasing some criminals but denied that he had accepted bribery in exchange for Panjang, Robin and Ah Yau's freedom.
The three alleged crooks are:
Cho Heng, aka Panjang, from Perak, who is the brother of Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Kong Cho Ha. Police applied to detain Panjang under Sec 4 (1) of Emergency Ordinance but the application was rejected in mid Jan 2007.
Chin Shui On, aka Robin, from Sabah. The cops also failed to detain him under the same Ordinance and he was released in January.
Moo Sai Chin, aka Ah Yau, from Perak. The order to place him under "Restricted Residence" in Tampin, Negri Sembilan, for a year was cancelled in Jan this year.
