1988 Judicial Crisis judge receives RM100 million ex-gratia payment each ...maybe? so tell us Zaid..

De facto Law Minister, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim said that he will not disclose the amount that was paid out as ex-gratia payment to the judges who fell 'victim' to the 1988 Judicial Crisis. He said that even if the question is raised in Parliament, he will not disclose it...

WHY? These are old men and they have so requested. It is not nice to disclose..

I do not see how we can justify the paying out RM100 million to each of the said judges and/or their families...

Or was it RM10 million each - or what was it..

It is OUR money - not Zaid Ibrahim's personal funds - or the BN's personal funds - and as such there must be transparency and accountability - and the rakyat has the right to know...

We want to know how much was given ..... Maybe even the judges will be shocked by the amount paid out -- maybe all they got was only a small portion of it, whilst the rest of it went into somebody else's pocket...Corruption is every where and at all levels in Malaysia.... from DPMs to
Director Generals... So better tell how much was paid out - and let us get confirmation that they (the judges) did receive the payment...

Accountability and transparency - just tell us the answer... Zaid Ibrahim

this is how our goverment mentality works. Give money to silent anything. Even debate of RM625 due to petrol price hike smell the same.. I think is the part of our culture now..

Please, these Judges have sufferred much too much already.

Even RM100 million is NOT enough and NO amount of money can pay back the shame, humiliation, and what is to be written in history books and records of the nation for generations to come.

Please Charles Hector, if you have been wrongfully ashamed and that your children and gradnchildren and the next 10 generations will have to live with it, how do you.

Have some humanity,if not an atom worth of it left in your heart!

Unless, like Shylock " a pound for a pound".

The system under UMNO/BN is so sick and consist uncurable virus as a whole. Should have denied them ruling this country in PRU12, instead 2/3 majority. If you are fair, transparent and accountable, no need to crack you head to do funny things, people will vote for you anyway as long as people and country come first. Politicians tak ada otak.
