Nude pictures: Prove that BN is responsible

KUALA LUMPUR, 18 Feb 2009: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today challenged the opposition to prove its allegation that the Barisan Nasional (BN) is involved in the posting of nude photographs of Selangor state executive councillor Elizabeth Wong on the internet.

Saying that the BN was not involved in the incident, Najib, who is also BN deputy chairperson, said the opposition should not accuse without proof.

“Accuse for what … prove who did it. I don’t know anything about the matter, suddenly it erupted in the newspapers.

“One should show proof if one wants to accuse. Don’t just talk, don’t just accuse wildly,” he said after chairing a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Liberalising the Services Sector at the Parliament building here.

Several Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) members, including its advisor, Datuk Seri Anwar, had accused the BN of being responsible for the circulation of the nude photographs of Wong, who is also the Wanita PKR information chief and Bukit Lanjan state assemblyperson.

Following the incident, Wong offered her resignation as assemblyperson and state executive councillor for Tourism, Environment and Consumer Affairs yesterday but Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim did not accept it and asked her to go on leave instead. — Bernama

    This “advice” is more suitable for Khir Toyo. Najib must know, actions speak louder and things can speak for themselves. People who are of sound mind will not believe that the circulation of Elizabeth’s photos was just for fun and not politically motivated. Don’t tell me the Pakatan did it. By defending the BN, Najib reflects and reveals BN’s attitude and mentality which cannot escape from peoples’ eyes.

    Sorry Najib. You guys are guilty by association. Your reply: “One should show proof if one wants to accuse. Don’t just talk, don’t just accuse wildly,” is not helping you.

    If I were you, I would say something like this: I’m sorry to hear of Elizabeth Wong’s ordeal. I love and respect all women. And I would not want this to happen to my own sister or daughter.

    I would ask Syed Hamid to expedite all efforts to stop this spreading of pictures and to find the culprit.

    That’s how you do it.
