"My ap0logy was to the people for getting my facts wrong. It was not the PM's house and it was not his son's house. But don't ask me who Patrick Lim is. I don't know who the guy is. Please ask that someone else who knows who Patrick Lim is."**On April 18, Bernama mis-reported that Dr M apolosies to PM over allegation of mansion ownership in Australia. The Star today carried Sufi's letter clarifying that Dr M only apologised for factual errors in speech.
** Dr Mahathir was asked, after delivering his speech at a session organised by an Umno branch in Ampang, if he had apologised to Abdullah over the scandal. Btw, Patrick Lim is a businessman linked closely to Abdullah. Dr M has mentioned his name many times before, sometimes referring to him as Patrick Badawi.
