Friends in High Places
Gani Patail and Vincent Lye go back a long way to their Sabah days where they even shared the same GROs at the Strawberry Club in Kota Kinabalu. With Gani’s help and through various corporate manoeuvres, Vincent Lye managed to take control of Ho Hup and drove Dato’ Low Tuck Choy (Dato’ TC) to be just a minority shareholder.
THE CORRIDORS OF POWER
by Deep Throat A-G Chambers
When the Attorney-General (AG) exercises his prosecution powers on criminal matters under Article 145(3) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia, he does so as the Public Prosecutor (PP). This means he acts as the public guardian to maintain law and order, which also means he acts in the public interest.
A-G not acting in the Public Interest
However, in the case of A-G Gani Patail, more often than not, his considerations are not in the public interest, rather it is for his own interests. That is why you have illogical and inconsistent decisions coming from this AG.
MAS did not suffer any loss and Tajuddin is an Angel, say Spinners
It is already public knowledge that MAS had suffered massive losses and was almost bankrupted by Tajuddin Ramli. Yet, when the Director of CCID recommended that Tajuddin should be charged, A-G Gani Patail did not do that. Instead, he charged the Director!
When Malaysia Today produced the Tabung Haji documents which showed AG Gani Patail with Tajudin’s proxy, Shahidan Shafie, taking the Lord For A Ride in doing the Haj together, they said that Malaysia Today is telling a lie.
Haj Trip remains unexplained
Until today, there is no satisfactory explanation from A-G Gani Patail. He wants people to believe that the Haj trip and of him sharing a room with Shahidan was just a coincidence. Shahidan was a former police inspector, OC Secret Societies Johor Bahru, who was charged for corruption. And today he is bosom buddies with A-G Gani Patail. Gani Patail can be so blatant in consorting with crooks and criminals because he thinks he is invincible from the process of the law.
Like the MAS Scandal, AG Gani Patail quite openly uses his position as PP to take sides in corporate disputes. He takes sides and uses his powers as PP to fix and charge real corporate figures with all kinds of funny offences so that his dubious and shady friends can take control of big corporations.
Ho Hup Bhd Case
Let me just show you one example. Ho Hup Bhd was an ailing company which had a huge land bank. Ho Hup was then owned by Dato’ Low Tuck Choy (Dato’ TC). Dato’ Vincent Lye Ek Seang, who is A-G Gani Patail’s good friend, had eyed Ho Hup’s land bank for quite sometime.
Gani Patail and Vincent Lye go back a long way to their Sabah days where they even shared the same GROs(socialites) at the Strawberry Club in Kota Kinabalu. With Gani’s help and through various corporate manoeuvres, Vincent Lye managed to take control of Ho Hup and drove Dato’ TC to be just a minority shareholder.
The moment Vincent Lye gained control of Ho Hup, he fleeced Ho Hup to the bones and sold off Ho Hup’s land bank. Seeing his company being ruined, Dato’ TC managed to rally the minority shareholders to come together to realise the damage caused by Vincent Lye.
After an audit, Dato’ TC and the other minority shareholders lodged several reports against Vincent for fraud, CBT, cheating and misappropriation of property. However, nothing happened. Dato’ TC then called for an EGM and, together with the other minority shareholders, they took steps to force Vincent Lye to leave the company.
That was when Dato’ TC found himself being harassed by AG Gani Patail. Firstly, Gani Patail directed the Registrar of Companies (ROC) to take action to injunct Dato’ TC’s shares in Ho Hup. Eventually, the ROC had to withdraw that action as there was no basis for it from the very beginning. In any event, the minority shareholders have already decided to oust Vincent Lye and his forty thieves.
To show his influence and to demonstrate that the show has not ended, Vincent Lye asked A-G Gani to come on parade with him in the offices of Ho Hup. A-G Gani Patail then strutted around the office to show that he will use his powers against anyone who dared to fight his buddy, Vincent Lye.
Dato’ TC charged
On 15 January 2011, the mainstream media reported that Dato’ TC had instead been charged. A-G Gani Patail and Vincent Lye go back a long way to their Sabah days where they even shared the same GROs at the Strawberry Club in Kota Kinabalu. With Gani’s help and through various corporate manoeuvres, Vincent Lye managed to take control of Ho Hup and drove Dato’ TC to be just a minority shareholder.
In case you doubt this story, just look at the picture (above) of A-G Gani Patail and his buddy Vincent Lye at the Ho Hup Office. Now, is that a show of power or what?
