“I’m The Man In The Sex Tape, Says Chua Soi Lek

LABIS, Jan 1 (Bernama) — MCA vice-president and Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek today admitted that he was the man captured on tape engaging in sexual acts with a woman, copies of which were widely distributed in Johor.

Despite his admission, Dr Chua maintained that he would not relinquish his government and party positions.

Reading a prepared statement at a press conference at the Labis MCA office here, the minister described the woman as a personal friend.

He said he met Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi yesterday to explain the matter and personally apologise to the prime minister.

Dr Chua said he had also met Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting over the matter.

“What’s most important is that my family, wife and children have accepted my apology,” he told the packed news conference, which was also attended by his supporters.

He appealed to the press to allow some space for his family to deal with this difficult time.

Stressing that he did not make the recordings himself, Dr Chua said who was behind it was not important but their reasons for doing it were obvious.

However, he declined to elaborate.

Dr Chua extended his apology to his colleagues, supporters and fellow Malaysians.

“I would also like to thank them for their concern and support through phone calls and SMSes,” he said.

When asked by reporters on his next course of action, Dr Chua said he would leave it to the police to investigate.

“I leave it to the police to investigate. I’m considering the possibility of making a police report but the police have started their own investigation,” he said.

Elaborating on his position in the government, Dr Chua said: “I serve at the pleasure of the prime minister.”

“I will not allow (other) people to jeopardise or obstruct my duties,” he said.

Dr Chua said he came to know about the recordings on Sunday when a friend gave him a copy of the video disc.

What will PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi do now? First, it was the nine non Muslim Cabinet members forwarding an unprecedented memorandum, which stirred a lot sensitivities to the Malay-Muslim majority. Of course, next it was the PPP President Vs Gerakan President on national media. Then, Gerakan Youth Vice Head S. Paranjothy slighted UMNO significantly, with his statement to Malaysiakini agreeing to the HINDRAF’s call. Later, it was UMNO Secretary General and Perlis UMNO/BN Chairman having a spat in the open, through media. And now this?

PM ‘Flip-Flop” Abdullah is really losing control with his ‘remote/delegate management’ of so-called “openness” policy!

Lets be ready to embrace ourselves with another ‘bumpy roller-coaster’ ride, for the year.

 

P/S:

If Health Minister and MCA Vice President Dato’ Seri Chua Soi Lek is not resigning now after the admission of this scandal, the bet is on PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah WILL NOT DO ANYTHING!

The best that PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah will do is to negotiate with MCA President Dato’ Seri Ong Ka Ting that Chua shall not stand in the next general elections and the Ministerial post that Chua held will be given to Deputy Information Minister Dato’ Donald Lim, PJ Selatan MP or Dewan Rakyat Deputy Speaker Dato’ Lim Si Cheng, Senai MP.

Typically PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah’s LEMBIK way of thinking and getting things done!
