Lingam was drunk? Tengku Adnan, whose name was mentioned by a man who looks and sounds like V.K. Lingam in the controversial video clip, certainly thinks so.
Testifying in the Royal Commission of Enquiry into the authenticity of the video, the Tourism Minister said denied any involvement in judge-fixing and described the phone conversation on the video as "words of a drunk chap".
Admittedly, the clip does show an impressive array of bottles on the table. I don't know how the Royal Commission is going to prove if the lawyer drank all or half of them, but you don't ever place those kind of bottles on a table just for display, do you?
Harakah has the angle.
