Dr M: Let's go to court/Walk With Us

Jeff Ooi vs Them. Screenshots goes back to Denmark House tomorrow at 9 am for the third time to face the NSTP and 3 others who are suing him for postings they claim to be defamatory. The same media giant and 4 others are suing me, also for defamation.
My case was heard f0r the third time in the Judge's chamber last Monday. After the hearing, I spoke to the AFP journalist, who subsequently wrote this piece, "Blogger may call Mahathir as witness", which Malaysiakini reproduced today.
Yes, I did tell her that I would consider calling both Dr M and Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to court, if and when the time comes, to help with my defence. A lot of my postings concern the PM and his successor.

Dr M: Let's go to court. I was invited to the launch of Syed Akbar Ali's book "Malaysia and the Club of Doom" at KLCC this afternoon. Dr M launched the book. At the end of the function, we bantered:
Bru: How are you, Tun?
Dr M: I'm fine. Hah, why did you withdraw (your application to strike out the plaintiffs' case)? Takutkah (Scared)?
Bru: Tak ... (No). Don't you know I'm going to summon you to court to be my witness?
Dr M: Let's go, now!

Adios

That's DrM for you!

Good move Rocky. More than good. Afterthought: Brilliant! I'm trying to figure out just what Jeff's best move is ... anyway, may the wind be with him.

Damn... now that's a book launch I would've loved to have gone to. I had done a review on the book sometime late last year, and my opinion is that it's definitely a worthwile read for all Malaysians.

BTW - sorry I couldn't be there yesterday, but as Jeff mentioned, I would have to be unemployed to be there... heh heh. Or self-employed.

And it looks like it will be the same with Jeff's tomorrow...

In any case, rest assured that I was there in spirit... ditto for ma┼łana.

---------
you mean the PM and his predecessor? and by PM do you mean Pak Lah or KJ?

politikus said...

don't you think TDM is always at his best when at ease? :)

Kean-Jin Lim said...

Very interesting. Good to know.

Good luck, gentleman.

monsterball said...

That short conversation shows TDM is at his best.'Lets go, now!" can mean when the time and date needed him to be there..he maybe busy...provide by that time...by going.. can score mileage for his personal and agendas..not for others.
Rocky needs alot of luck to maintain such a co-operative mood from TDM. Hope he has.

Rocky dude, the first thing after reading that "Let's go now" statement from Tun just made me think that you're going into a handicap wrestling match with the unpredictable Stone Cold Steve Austin. Rocky 3:16 y'all!

Salam Bro Rocky

Berani kerana benar....

Terasa kehilangan pemimpin berwibawa macam TDM

I disgaree with Pulau Tikus. Although Tun Dr. Mahathir has his lighter side , however, from my experience, he is in his top form when he is a little bit aroused, agitated and/or mentally and emotionally charged, at the same time.

Its how he addressed UMNO General Assemblies when he was still the PM and recently, his speech made at the Perdana Global Forum III and when he spoke at Johor Bahru, 10 Feb 2007.

I think great leaders psyched themselves up, when they want to express a certain message at a big crowd.

Kewl bro,

Minta laluan untuk menjawab comment saudara di blog saya. Maaf.
Dear Rocky and Anon,

Thank you My Bro Anon. Fr. Miri. We surely need your expertise there. I am trying to go deep into this. I am planning to bring as many bloggers themselves to Kelantan and Lojing. Without fear or favour, we are now the only source of the truth about our beloved country. Let’s challenge Sazmi and The PAS government of Kelantan to sit in a forum in front of all the participating bloggers and let us hear only facts and not rhetoric. Then we can pay Annuar Musa a visit! If he tries to leave the state, I will arrange for few of my friends to persuade him from leaving.

Dear Rocky, when I first live in Menara Duta, it was all about the greeneries and the inhabitant of the jungle. Still remember taking my kids for breakfast each weekend, the narrow road was always wet in the morning. It is very cooling. Secondary jungle was on theft and right. We could see monkeys, and hundred of them.

But one think about the narrow road in the secondary jungle were the butterflies. Thousand of them flying over the wet road. It was a sight, I regretted for not able to see it again today. All the jungle between Jalan Duta and Segambut has been cleared. Wonder now, if the species of those butterflies now extinct. And Rocky, yes, where do the monkeys go.

I know there are hundred of the new species now serving in the states, the country and even in the Parliament. Oh, there are also at least five monkeys (of the new kind) in the cabinet, or may be more?
Minta maaf sekali lagi.

Syabas Bro!

A Voice said...

I bear witness to that conversation.

With Tun M as your witness on the Tokyo incident, will Pak Lah be his usual self to lie for the sake of Kalimullah.

Thats what NAsty Pee doesn't want to ... a trail. Heee heeee

Anonymous said...

but if i remember it correctly, isnt Tun M also do the same i.e., application to strike out the plaintiffs' case (DSAI's defamation suit)

politikus said...

bigdog, then you can say TDM is at ease at all times.

at ease when agitated, at ease under attack? :)

zewt said...

hah... what was your response to that? :)

WattaHack said...

PM and Ex-PM in court! that'll be fun! sure pack full one.... good time for us to sell bloggers united T-shirts there to raise funds and awareness!

Anonymous said...

This is the same TDM who stomped on the independence of the judiciary and has absolutely no regard(or understanding) of the separation of powers. Be careful! Be very very careful bro!!!
