Much has been said about the party at the other end of the line in the VK Lingam video.
Let us for the time being assume that the video was of someone speaking to the wall.
We can still, nevertheless, conclude with a high degree of certainty that the following was said:
One day I went to Vincent Tan’s house, I fired him at night in his house. I said bloody hell, if you don’t do this who will do it? All these people, Tun Eusoff Chin, Datuk Ahmad Fairuz, Tan Sri Zainol (?) all fought for …hat. Then he called Tengku Adnan. Tengku Adnan he said, saya bukan Perdana Menteri Malaysia lah, you know. If the old man doesn’t want to listen to me, go to hell.
There are some gaps in this transcript, so readers should listen to the original to ascertain for themselves that in stating the above, the person in the video was saying that Tun Eusoff Chin , Ahmad Fairuz and one Tan Sri Zainol all fought for Vincent Tan.
Therefore, from the above alone, there appears to be a prima facie case that former CJ Eusoff Chin and current CJ Ahmad Fairuz ("110% loyalty) promoted , indeed ,fought for the interests of Vincent Tan, in their official capacities.
Certainly, there is evidence even in the public domain, reproduced on this blog, to show more than one instance where both men have handed down judgements in favour of Vincent Tan that would be laughable if not for their consequences.
This prima facie conclusion then raises questions,the answers to which may come within the provisions of the ANTI-CORRUPTION ACT 1997 and/or the Prevention of Corruption Act 1961.
Therefore, it cannot be said out of hand as the AG has done, that the video discloses no criminal offence.
