Today, 11 am, Suhakam office. Former MP for Bukit Bintang Wee Choo Keong, whose name was mentioned by lawyer Lingam in a 2002 videotaped phone conversation (allegedly with the now-Chief of Justice), is striking back.
Around eleven this morning, the lawyer-politician is expected to lodge a formal complaint with the Human Rights Commission (Suhakam) against the four above-mentioned parties for alleged infringement of his human rights. In the complaint, Wee will quote several Articles in the Federal Constitution, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the United Nations Charter.
In 1995 Wee was disqualified as an Member of Parliament by the Election Judge, Dato' Sri Ahmad Fairuz bin Dato' Shekh Abdul Halim, as the CJ then was. Fairuz subsequently appointed the loser of the election as the MP for Bukit Bintang.
Wee has called for the setting up of a Royal Commission by the Government to investigate into the contents of the video clip and has made publis his unhappiness with the terms of reference of the three-men Investigative Committee set up to probe the Lingam tape.
