PETALING JAYA: Datuk T is an alias for ‘Datuk Trio' - former Malacca chief minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and Perkasa treasurer Datuk Shuib Lazim.
Rahim told this to reporters at a press conference here on Wednesday.
Shazryl was at the press conference but not Shuib.
Rahim, however, refused to identify the man in the video but hinted “this man may end up being PM”.
He went to say that the man had once asked him to step down for the nation's sake, when he (Rahim) was implicated (but later cleared) of an alleged sex scandal
"The man asked me to step down then, saying I was a liablity. I was told to go (as Malacca CM) although I was never found guilty," he added.
Rahim said that it was now up to the Government to set a Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate the authenticity of the video.
He said the members of the RCI should comprise people from various quarters and include Perkasa and Kita president Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.
“We want NGOs and also media to sit in the RCI. Let everyone see the truth. All political parties - both Government and Opposition - can also be in the RCI," he added.
Rahim said PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang should also be included in the RCI.
Meanwhile, Shazryl told the press conference that they did not go to the police over the sex video as they did not want the issue to be spun into a conspiracy theory. - The Star
It has been revealed now, by the individuals themselves, that the mysterious T in Datuk T stands for theTrio of Tan Sri Rahim Thamby Chik, Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and Datuk Shuib Lazim.
Rahim is former Malacca chief minister, Eskay is a businessman and Shuib is the treasurer of NGO Perkasa.
Nothing much is known about Shuib apart from his current position in Perkasa.
Businessman Eskay is a colorful figure. He was at one point of time the Malaysian consul in Hatyai and is currently involved in a legal tussle over the cancelled Scenic Bridge project.
There are claims that Eskay used to be close to Statesman Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad but the fact is that Eskay has been in Anwar Ibrahim's inner circle for a long time.
Their 'special relationship' goes back to the days before Anwar was Deputy Prime Minister.
Raja Petra is also believed to have enjoyed 'special hospitality' from Eskay who spent a lot of time in Langkawi.
Wonder what is Eskay's motive in turning his back against Anwar Ibrahim now.
As for Rahim, the whole world knows that it was a "now prominent Opposition leader" and ex-Umno leader who conspired with the top leadership of DAP and "fixed' Rahim in an underage rape case in the early 90s.
Rahim was "fixed' and smeared although he was never found guilty because he was a threat to the then up and coming 'God sent' leader.
I guess it payback time and Rahim is playing the same game, only this time around the noose is on a dying man's neck.
Whether God sent or not, Anwar Ibrahim has to answer the Sodomy 2 charges against him first and then TELL US ALL about this latest "An Eye for An Eye" sex-video saga
p/s I must agree that these guys are paying back in style, plus interest!
