Mum considering all options to protect Anya

Malaysiakini | Oct 24, 2011

The mother of a young woman whose photograph had been used to implicate the son of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng in an alleged molestation case said she will consider all options in the interest of protecting her daughter.

This may even include taking legal action against those parties propagating rumours about 21-year-old Anya Ann Corke, said her mother, Mei Sun.

“As Anya’s parent, I will check on the options to protect her from this kind of nuisance,” she was quoted in the South China Morning Post today.

Anya, a one-time Hong Kong chess champion who is now studying in the US, was alleged by pro-Umno bloggers to have been molested by Guan Eng’s teenage son, and was the reason for his transfer from the SMK Heng Ee school.

Guan Eng had also paid Anya’s parents some RM200,000 to cover up the purported scandal, they alleged.

Anya, Guan Eng and the principal of SMK Heng Ee have all denied the incident ever happened, with the DAP secretary-general last Wednesday lashing out at those trying to destroy him politically by wrecking his teenage son’s life with “morally despicable and barbaric” lies.

A third-year student at Wellesley College in the US, Anya (left) said she had not been in Malaysia for the past seven years, had never gone to school in Penang, and had never met her alleged molestor.

In the South China Morning Post report, Anya said: “A Malaysian friend of mine texted me one morning and said that I was somehow part of a political conspiracy and I was completely surprised. It was out of the blue.”

Prime Minister and BN chairperson Najib Abdul Razak yesterday called for politicians to leave the family members of their rivals out of gutter politics and free from exploitation for political gain.

Najib added, however, that the principle of keeping family members out of politics must apply both to the opposition and ruling coalition.

Najib’s wife, Rosmah Mansor, has been severely accused of a number of allegations, from alleged extravagant spending to imposing herself on official as well as unofficial prerogatives.

Najib’s deputy Muhyiddin Yassin, on the other hand, has shown no let up in applying pressure on Guan Eng (right).

Muhyiddin on Saturday said Lim’s denial that his son had done anything wrong was “not enough” and that Lim should ask the police to investigate.

    There is a lot of blog chat of Muhyuddin’s obvious stupidity in his comment that “mere denial is not enough” and LGE must make a police report if his son is not guilty.

    He may not be as stupid as everyone thinks. I suspect he is taking advantage of this slander to take a sly dig at his boss Najib. He could be implying Najib’s mere denial of knowing Altantunya is not enough and is trying to goad Najib into making a wrong move that could seal his (Najib’s) fate.

    If Najib is trying to equate LGE’s son and his wife to be equally protected, he cannot be more wrong. Where FLOM is blatantly interfering in affairs of state and using state machineries, apparatus and facilties for personal grandiosing projects, LGE’s son is just a child and have never been involved in any state matters or been involved in any activities that has incurred state funds.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    Moo is using the above principle to twist the Lim Jr issue into becoming the truth

    Years ago when Moo was an ordinary cikgu sekolah pondok with his students Anwar and Saifool—

    Anwar: Cikgu, Saifool kata saya raba-raba dia!

    Cikgu Moo: Betul itu, Saifool?

    Saifool: No lah, cikgu, gua bohong saje.

    Anwar: Hentam dia, cikgu! Dia pembohong besar.

    Cikgu Moo: A mere denial is not enough, Anwar. You have to go to the balai polis and make a laporan Then barulah the polis will siasat and then you can go to penjara.

    Saifool: Wow, Cikgu terror! Cikgu best!

    Anwar: What the…..

    Anya claimed that she had not visited Malaysia for 7 years. LGE’s son is only 16 yrs.
    If DPM and Liow believe that it happened on Malaysian soil, then LGE’s son was only 9 yrs old.
    This is Malaysia.
    Look like Chess, sound like chest, but its not chess!

    LOL!!! so their mata-mata are all set in place, something’s up umno’s sleeves?

    Why should they insist on using the police when the alleged ‘victim’ denied ever knowing LGE’s son, said her piece and that parties are propagating evil rumours.

    Ok Ok mum corke. Name your price. 10m us? Is that enough? No. How about 20m US then? More? Right, 50m US. Deal? Yeah? US50m. OK?

    So you see umno always has a way to get the results they want to see or hear. That is in our local context. I dont know about mum corke and I really dont know how she would react to umno’s money offer. So what I wrote above is hypothetical. I wrote it not with the purpose to put her down but to highlight what umno is capable of doing.

    Remember the faulty mosque speaker in puchong incident involving teresa. Didnt the mosque people clarify that the volume was down because the speaker was faulty. Nonetheless umno continued with their public orgy and insisted that it was teresa who complained and caused the lowered speaker volume.
