Ambiga keeps mum - The Malaysian Insight
“Ambiga had told the defendant that her sources, whom she said were reliable, had estimated the amount that had been paid was around RM90 million," said Rewcastle-Brown in her court filing dated 11 Oct - Sarawak Report editor names Ambiga as source: Report
|Desperate, Clare throws Ambiga under the bus
Seasoned journalist Nuraina Samad's Muahahahaaaaaaa ... response to the confession is one fine example.
Malaysians have known all along that Sarawak Report was pure online BS. We just could not prove or did not know how to prove the BS.
Now, Clare's confession is the only proof we'll ever need!
And what poetic justice! The confession was made - had to be made - in a British court. So much to thank Tuan Guru al-Hadi for having the gumption to take Clare to the court - in her own backyard - to clear his name and expose Sarawak Report as nothing but a fraud.
What shocked me, as a journalist, was the fact that Clare had actually pointed the finger at Ambiga, her Deep Throat. I have always thought that these western journalists would protect their source at all cost. Maybe Clare is a new breed of western journalists! Or she was extremely desperate.
As one commenter in Nuraina Samad's posting so aptly puts it, "... they are throwing each other under the bus".
We now wait for Ambiga to throw her "reliable sources" under the bus.
p.s On a more serious note, Clare's admission brings to mind the police reports recently lodged by our Attorney-General against blogger RPK for his postings in Malaysia Today. Like Clare, RPK is also biased in the UK but the two are NOT on the same side where Malaysian politics is concerned. You can read about AG vs RPK it in my previous post h e r e. Things seem to have quietened down a bit, though, after RPK's climbdown in Part 3 of his Strong Rumours Surrounding the AG series but the police have started their investigation.
