On Sept2 1998, Anwar was sacked by his boss.
On Sept3 1998, four affidavits were served on Datuk Nallakaruppan (who was charged for an offence under the Internal Security Act [ISA] for possession of some 125 rounds of ammunition without a licence) at about 8:35 a.m. that morning.
By 1:30 p.m. that day TV3 in its news broadcast made public the allegations made in one of the affidavits, which were very detrimental to Datuk Anwar. Those allegations were also published among others, in a special edition of the Malay Mail newspaper which went to print at about 12:00 noon and became available for purchase by the public at 2:00 p.m. the same day. Lulu's mum sent her out to buy this [noC4 required] explosive edition which contained sex, lies and no videotape.
Fastforward 10 years.
On 18th June 2008, RPK signed a statutory declaration concerning what he had been informed regarding the Altantuya murder. It made its way around the internet.
There was no special edition printed by the Malay Mail even though the boost in sales would have been much appreciated in a time where their sales have gone the same direction as their reputation.
There was nothing, not even a hint of it in the normal papers.
ahh.... Lulu suspects this PM really, really likes his DPM, unlike the 1998 PM and his DPM.
