Lulu's BREAKFAST Lunch Dinner Series 5

Footnote taken from The Trouble With Malaysia, a Brian Yap essay from the book New Malaysian Essays 1

After he admitted to asking the Customs Department to "close one eye" over a shipment of sawn timber exceeding the import limit, MP for Jasin Mohd Said Bin Yusof emphasised that he was "helping a Bumiputera company in trouble".
For what it's worth, he was telling the truth.
It was his company and he is a Bumiputera.
