KHIR TOYO BACK IN THE LIMELIGHT

Once again, former Selangor MB Khir Toyo is back in the limelight, this time over a house (or was it a palace) that he has built in Section 7, Shah Alam that is reported to cost more than RM 20 million. Khir Toyo claimed that he had taken up a bank loan of RM 3.5 million to purchase the land and subsequently built the house. But what is not known is how much was spend to built the house that resembles Michael Jackson’s palatial home, and fittings and furniture’s that is reported to have been imported.

To most people that had viewed the photos of the house, the obvious reaction would be one of surprise and bewilderment. Questions would then be asked as to how much would the house cost, and could Khir Toyo genuinely afford to pay for such a grand house with the income that he gets previously as the Menteri Besar, and now as a state assemblyman. It would have been different if he had purchased the land and built the house prior to venturing into politics. And being a dentist prior to being the Menteri Besar, it was hardly possible for Khir Toyo to even afford buying a house that is worth RM 1 million.

Now, Khir Toyo has decided to sue DAP’s Sekinchan assemblyman Ng Suee Lim for raising to public notice, the palatial home that Khir Toyo has built, stating that he is “fed- up with all the baseless allegations that have been leveled against him”. Khir Toyo certainly has every right to sue assemblyman Ng Suee Lim, but I believe this will not stop others from exposing fresh allegation of supposedly corrupt practices by Khir Toyo and the previous BN state government.

It is a known fact that for a person who is involved in corrupt practices, it is not easy for the person to continually deny his involvement in corruption. To deny would mean that the person has to craft a convincing lie, and subsequently many more lies as a cover or justification to an earlier lie. This lying process will go on until such time the person gets tangled up in his own lie, before the person finally breaks down. I hope Khir Toyo knows this and it is for this reason that it is better to tell the truth, even if he has to admit that he has done something wrong. For one to admit that he has done wrong is virtuous, and people are always willing to forgive and forget once forgiveness is sought by the wrong doer.

Since being ousted as the Menteri Besar, Khir Toyo has been the obvious target for corruption by the present ruling PR government. But I still find it strange that none of the previous BN executive council members of the Khir Toyo administration has come to the defence of their former boss. They all seemed to be in hibernation since having lost their position in government, or are they too afraid to speak up, fearing that some of their corrupt practices (if they are any) will also be spilled out.

A dentist turned millionare during a brief journey as Selangor Menteri Besar!

How does anybody account for it?

Has anybody gone to Janda Baik and listen to the locals whether he owns big pieces of land there?

Any other ugly stories registered
about this guy? Tun Mahadhir must have felt very sorry for picking up this guy! Guess, isn't he also responsible and accountable for BN loss in Selangor? Great CHAMPION!

The RAKYATS' warning to politicians
" For God's and this country's sake, DON'T try to make riches after taking up politics, but make riches first before getting involved in politics"!

I suppose, one way to reduce the number of corrupted politicians.

I hope justice will prevail

There is a Tamil saying that you need a thousand lies to cover one lie. To persistent liars, this is not a problem. If one is so used to lying, it almost is believed to be the truth by the liar unconsciously. Hence, compulsive lying becomes a characteristic. If God was to come down to earth every evening to give tight slaps to liars,sinners,adulterers etc.In the morning we would see a lot of people walking around with swollen cheeks.I don't think that suits and counter suits work nowadays. The judiciary is tainted too. I believe that God's justice still stands. Remember the gatekeeper who built his palace on earth? Well god has him in his palace now.

KHIR TOYO - ONLY ONE SCAPE GOAT !
THERE ARE MANY MORE IN THIS BOLEH-LAND!

IF ALL THE EX - MINISTERS AND HIGH RANKING OFFICIALS ARE TO DECLARE THEIR ASSETS, THIS COUNTRY WILL NOT HAVE ENOUGH COURTS FOR TRIAL AND ENOUGH JAIL TO KEEP THEM INSIDE!

LOOK AT THE UK - WHEN MP's WERE TOLD TO DECLARE THEIR CLAIMS, THOSE WHO MADE BOGUS CLAIMS RETIRED AND LEFT!

THEY HAVE "MARUAH"

IN THIS COUNTRY NONE HAS ANY "MARUAH" - THEY TAKE, THEY EAT DUIT HARAM, MAKAN HARAM, USE HARAM,GIVE FAMILY MAKAN & GAJI HARAM! MOST OF THEM ISLAM! MELAYU !
SUNGGUH MEMALUKAN BANGSA DAN AGAMA!

SO ALL "HARAM JADAH"

Dato,

Rather than talking about politicians owning big mansions why not you highlight about ex- military and ex-PTD officers who have served in Mindef owning expensive bungalow houses?I believe this would be more interesting subject to discuss in our crusade against corruption in the military.

The Khir Toyo case is nothing new as we know all along most politicians show their wealth by building mega mansions locally and abroad and having few expensive cars in their garages.

Dato,

Saya setuju dengan cadangan Maurice itu.Lebih baik kita berbincang isu-isu korupsi dalam Kementah dan ATM dari meneyentuh kes-kes seperti Khir Toyo yang mana kita tidak mempunyai maklumat utama (primary source).

Barangkali ramai yang dapat membantu Dato mengenalpasti banglo-banglo mahal yang didirikan olih bekas-bekas pegawai ATM dan PTD (yang memegang jawatan di Kementah sebelum bersara).

Kalau tiada elemen korupsi mereka tidak harus berasa khuatir Dato!

Dato,

Saya bersetuju dengan apa yang disarankan olih Loreng itu.

Blog Dato ni bolih dimuatkan dengan gambar tak?

Kita bolih minta bantuan dari fellow crusaders untuk menghantar gambar ke blog Dato.

Salam Hormat.
