Don't know whether Mahathtir had listened to Matthias Chang, his one time political secretary. But he is right not to do a deal with Fat Low.
Why should Fat Low want to do a deal unless he knows he is culpable in the 1MDB scandal?
If he is culpable, why should Bolehland want do a deal? We are not talking about a few ringgit, or a few million ringgit or even about hundreds of million ringgit but about tens of billion ringgit!
And the shameless, blatant manner the scandal had been pulled off and the shameless denials and pulling wool.
If Fat Low is culpable, the full force of the law should be thrown at him.
Anyway, unlike the United States, there is no such thing as a plea bargain in Bolehland. You could do a back door deal by agreeing to file a lesser charge, but a plea bargain is not a recognised animal in Bolehland.
In fact, the Mahathir administration should speed up investigations on the 1MDB scandal, described as the world's worst case kleptocracy.
What is holding back the administration? Going slow, slow isn't an option. Yes, the rule of law applies but justice delayed is justice denied.
Bolehlanders want to see that all culprits whether he be a ex-Pm or not, who had a hand in the greatest con job in the world be brought before a court of law to face the music and be made accountable.
The rakyat have suffered enough because of some unscrupulous crooks who thought they could get away because of the shield of power.
Not any more, hopefully. Because the Pakatan Harapan government the rakyat voted them into power owes the people that much - to right the wrongs and repay the faith now reposed in them.
