Look who is calling the kettle black

It is easy to blow trumpet and beat gongs asking for transparency in everything. But when it comes to their own doing, the loudest voice in the country who has forever been calling for transparency, has the audacity to issue a gag order [here] calling it internal matter.

"More evidence has surfaced to implicate Selangor executive councillor Ronnie Liu over the issuance of support letters, even as DAP chairman Karpal Singh issued a gag order on the matter.
In his 12-page appeal letter against his sacking by the DAP, former Klang municipal councillor Tee Boon Hock is alleging that Liu personally issued a letter of support for a company belonging to Tee’s son only weeks after assuming his exco post, and four months before Tee’s own letter dated Aug 12, 2008.
In Penang, Karpal issued a gag order to all DAP members on the matter, which he admitted had smeared the party’s image.
He also indicated that issues surrounding Liu would be discussed at the party’s central exe cutive committee meeting on Thursday.
Tee was recently sacked from both the Klang Municipal Council and the party for purportedly misusing Liu’s letterhead and seal to secure business contracts worth RM1mil for his cronies and family.' [the Star]
