Tan Sri Bernard Dompok
Tan Sri Bernard Giluk Dompok will be officiating the Merdeka Statement launch on Thursday. I’m looking forward to hearing what he will have to say. If you remember correctly, he was the one who resigned as Head of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Integrity not too long ago. The reasons Nazri consequently gave were that he was influenced by Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang, amongst others.
There must be more to it than that. One wonders about what takes place behind the scenes, what relationships and personalities need to be addressed and “taken care of”, to the extent that Integrity is no longer practiced nor preached.
Yes, indeed I am sure his views will be interesting. What better Minister to launch the Merdeka Statement, at a time where Integrity is so much needed in the country?
