    Singapore official responds to ‘leaks’ issue
    By LESTER KONG

    KUALA LUMPUR: Singapore’s top foreign ministry official, implicated in damning remarks on Malaysia and its leadership after a leak by a whistleblower website, has finally responded to the issue.

    Hounded by Malaysian and Singaporean press at a Malaysia-Singapore senior officials meeting here yesterday, Bilahari Kausikan at first avoided the waiting media by going through another entrance of the hotel.

    About 40 minutes later, he came out smiling when reporters approached him during a lunch break but refused to answer any question related to the WikiLeaks release of diplomatic cables between the United States and Singapore.

    “We don’t comment on leaks of any kind or there will not be an end to it,” he replied three times when asked by reporters.

    Pressed by reporters to describe the atmosphere of the Malaysia-Singapore Joint Implementation Team on the implementation details of the Points of Agreement, Kausikan said his Malaysian counterpart Datuk Mohad Radzi Rahman was an old friend.

    “Radzi and I are old friends. We are both very professional,” he added.

    Kausikan said the two-day meeting was going on smoothly.

    “We are making substantial progress. We hope to fulfil the mandate given by our ministers by Dec 31, otherwise we will turn into pumpkins and roll away,” he told reporters lightheartedly.

    "No comments" means the leaks must be true. If it is not true, you think he will be so quiet and try to hide one corner? Anyway, there is no secret what was leaked. Everyone knew that the Malaysian politicians are corrupted.

    Comparing to lky's son's govt, Malaysian govt is without doubt corrupted; whereas in Leeapore, the voters not lky's son's govt are corrupt - always waiting for freebies from the govt before elections.

    What corruption? There is nothing corrupt about getting back your own money. The gov's money is the tax payers money, and there is nothing wrong about tax payers getting back what they were taxed.

    Of course Singapore gov are not corrupted, cos it's already been legalised. So no corruption.
