马华三人调查小组有名无实?

BY HOWARD LIM

敬爱的拿督斯里蔡医生,小弟才疏学浅,但也看得出不能对这个三人调查委员会寄以厚望... 原因有三:

1. 调查委员会的组成与代表性:

三人中,一个几乎完全没有政治工作的经验,而另两人嘛,虽然丹斯里石清霖德高望重,处事一向正直,任重道远,但毕竟不是专业司法程式的执行者,当然,我们不能就此对该委员会的公平公正产生置疑,但一个这么暧昧且牵涉多方的问题,在没有律法赋权的情况下,委员会成员也难免为难。

2. 调查委员会的作业模式:

调查委员会的工作过于公开,几乎每一个受邀出席听证会的人士都会马上成为媒体的追踪焦点,先勿论政治立场或背景,考虑到对个人及家庭成员的影响,一般涉及事件的人士都不会愿意露面供证(尤其是在这个所谓挺黄倒黄的关键时刻,所有的动作都变得极为敏感。),人证匮乏,当然物证也就不能提供有效的调查作用了。

3. 调查委员会的权威与专业性:

就箅"斩鸡头,立重誓",以人类这个物种而视,尤其是事关身份地位,别人眼中人格优劣的问题,为了确立及稳固本身立场,许多人是愿意使用这种手段的;今天看到调查委员会建议以"宣誓"来担保供证人的言词,实在让人错愕,甚至相当置疑调查委员会的权威性,试问有哪个被判有罪的人不曾大言不惭的手按经典立誓背书? 调查委员会必须以实在的证据为考量,并以公正的道德标准为依归,若三人小组一事子虚乌有,涉案三人必须得还清白,若真有此事,应予以严惩,还百万马华党员及马华的支持民众一个公道!而非选择以 "宣誓" 的方式来提升言论及供证的可信度,形同儿戏!再者,说到惩处,在三人调查委员会完成调查工作之后,所有的证物,结论及报告是否呈交马华会长理事会进行最后的定夺? 若然,则委员会的工作是否能起着决定性的作用也实在发人深思...

其实,小弟还有一个蛮有趣的迷思,成立三人调查委员会的动机到底是什么?是履行民主程序,还原事件真像吗?还是另有所图?或者,依逻辑检测其价值,是搜索传言中的秘密小组的运作程序及成果? 是确认该组织的存在与否? 是找出操作者的身份及目的? 是向党员交待事件的始末? 是清党归正的实在作业? 或... 仅仅只是为已经被确认的事实代赎?

Dr. Chua,

I think as a start, you yourself have put in too many comments and criticisms on the manner the 3-man Investigating Team carries out its work, and you are fast in blaming the party president that this 3-man snoop squad really exists, and its existence was under the “instruction” of party president Ong Ka Ting; at least you have tried in many different occasions to imply to this effect, or painted it so.

As a politician, former party vice president and a former minister, I respect you a lot for speaking out the minds, frustrations and aspirations of the Chinese community, but in this particular incident, I have a feeling that you have not been gentleman enough. Why not let the team finish its work, draw some conclusion first before you fire your salvos? Why in a rush? Is it not the wishes of most MCA members to let the issue thoroughly investigated, so those innocent people will not be accused of wrongdoings, and those real culprits accordingly punished?

I don’t know the motive of those MCA guys who lodged a police report yesterday about your sex scandal video. It is already water under the bridge; let this matter rest. To me, it is entirely a personal and private affair, but alas, if you want to stay long in politics, don’t let your enemies catch you pants down. Not anyone to blame, except yourself.

I think you stand a chance if you want to stage a comeback in MCA. Do something else. There are hundreds of issues and problems faced by the Chinese community at large. To us, this snoop squad thing is too trivial to even be mentioned in our daily conversation!

曾几何时
陈祯禄在天上府望
老泪濽灒而落
马华啊马华
目前到底变得什么样了
华人不爱它了吗
华人不再依靠它了呀
想当年我在位
马华是华人的前锋
马华是华人的英雄
马华啊马华
它的英雄气概呢
它的卫国卫民呢

曾几何时
陈修信在天堂落泪
为何马华会落得今天的下场
马华啊马华
你还不振作啊
目前是号称世界第三大会员最多的政党
中国共产党己经国际化
台湾国民党己经现代化
你还停留在黄朝古代化
马华啊马华
2013年到时你可能
被政治洪涛所淹没
巫统将变成古代的恐龙
马华呢一只蚊子都不如

I'm not totally agreeable with the view point of Anak Johor. It is true that we have other more serious issue to attend to. BUT, if it is true that the party leaders are behind this unscrupulous snoop squad thing, then the whole chinese community reputation at stake!

any leader can do anything to try to get hold of the position that he holds. BUT again, it has to follow certain morale principles/standard. if a leader can forget or ignore this rule of game, do you think he'll be a 'good leader'? can you still place high hope and regards on them? i personally doubt it!

therefore, i think a 3-man Investigating Team without a clearly defined authority and reporting boundary is a waste of time. i can even predict that the result of this investigation will create an open verdict. It is because since the beginning, either the party leaders or comment from one of the committee member have indicated it by stating the result of 'JFK murder'.

What Anak Johor said is true. Dr, you stand a good chance to make a come back. GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!
