KUALA LUMPUR, July 14 — The Health Ministry will now investigate whether tear gas and water cannon was fired at the Tung Shin Hospital during the Bersih rally on Saturday following differing accounts from the police and eyewitnesses, minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said tonight
He said that a high-level committee headed by Health Ministry secretary-general Datuk Kamarul Zaman Md Isa will conduct a thorough and transparent investigation into the incident at the hospital in the capital city as patient security and hospital safety was paramount.
All the usual suspects again...."high-level committee" headed by the Sec Gen and a "thorough and transparent investigation." When they come to this stage we all know that the "damage" cannot be contained within BN. So to delay matters and buy more time why not start an investigation ala "Yes Minister". Why Minister do you think we can be placated by this "investigation". This matter is now in the public domain - out of your "control" and let me spell out what it means to the MCA. The Chinese people in Malaysia are very upset (that is a polite way of saying that they are bloody angry with MCA and you will not get the Chinese votes at the next GE!). They are upset that the MCA finds it expedient to support the "official version" of what happened at Tung Shin hospital.In other words the Chinese are saying that you guys in MCA have got no balls to stand up to UMNO lah! So really the committee is a waste of time. MCA die lah!
