Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the foremost blogger in the country, has sent out word to both prominent blogger Datuk Rocky Bru and Minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim to tone down their squabble and leave the matter at hand to the authorities.
It was learned that the former Prime Minister thinks both Rocky Bru and Rais had said what they needed to say and if there were any wrongdoings, the respective authorities are already looking into it.
Che Det had made it clear that prolonging the squabble would be of no gain to either party, plus not positive to the image of the government.
Rais was a member of Dr Mahathir’s Cabinet who survived the Badawi cabinet despite his sometimes strong views against the 5th Prime Minister.
Rocky is often described as a Mahathir ally. Backed by Umno bloggers who are Mahathir loyalists, notably Big Dog, Rocky has launched a series of postings attacking Rais since October, after the Minister had lodged a police report on Rocky for his posting calling for greater transparency at Rais’ ministry.
Several parties, including Umno leaders, have attempted to bring together the warring parties but without success.
Rocky’s last posting related to Rais was published here ... on a police investigation into a maid rape scandal, which Rais has refuted.
Big Dog is expected to be called in by the police soon.
