Any more question?

Reporter 1: Mr. DPM, Mr. DPM sir, can you comment on The PMs apology to Tun Salleh Abbas and the other judges who were dismissed in 1988?

DPM: Excuse me, which publication are you from? STAR? Harakah? AWSJ? Makkal Osai? Penthouse?

Reporter 1
: I'm with the NST Mr. DPM.

DPM: Whatever gave you that idea? It was not an apology. Who said the PM apologised?

Reporter 1 : Why then offer them ex-gratia, if the PM does not feel that they have been wronged?

DPM: So, you come to that conclusion just because of the ex-gratia? I see, I see. Okay, here is what actually happened. Our space programme, you know the one where we sent that, what's his name, to space?

Reporter 1: Yes, that fellow. I also can't remember his name.

DPM: Well the Russian government said that we have been a good client for the prompt payment that we made, so they gave us some discounts. Since we have some extra money, we thought why not we donate the money to some old-folks.

Reporter 1: You mean to say that they were justly dismissed?

DPM: No, I didn't say that. Actually, I did not even know that they were dismissed and who dismissed them.

Reporter 1: It was big news then and you mean to say you were not aware?

DPM: I have always been the type who gives 110 percent in my work so I had no time to dwell into anything that had nothing to do with my ministry. I swear I tell you, I didn't know.

Reporter 1: I find this hard to believe Mr. DPM sir. Is this any indication that you do not want to get into the bad books of the Tun?

DPM: Any other questions?

Reporter 2: The opposition has for a long time been calling for the setting up of a commission to deal with the elevation of judges. At last night's dinner, the PM said that, such a commission would be srt up, does this mean that the government is bowing to the opposition's request?

DPM: Are you sure you are not from Makkal Osai? No, not at all. Actually it is the government who called representative from the oppositions and ask them to make this request, meaning it has been our idea all the while.

Reporter 2: Why do that when you could do it on your own?

DPM: Any other question?

Reporter 3: Has the PM discussed with you the timetable for the transition of power?

DPM: Yes, he called me to discuss the matter but I told him, I have more important things to do, like strengthening UMNO and regaining public confidence in the government. Actually, this transition thing is not important to me.

Reporter 3: You mean you don't mind if the PM continues until the next election?

DPM: Any more questions?

Reporter 4: Do you think the Rakyat would accept you as the next PM since your name was implicated in the Altantuya case?

DPM: Any more questions?

Reporter 5: Mr. DPM sir, where are the police taking reporter 1, 2, 3 and 4?

DPM: Minum kopi kot.
