This guy, Ibrahim Ali, is truly truly unbelievable

More worms are coming out from the woodworks regarding Ibrahim Ali's association with Berjaya. This time,it is the gambling interest, also of Berjaya, Ascot Sports. Not only is this guy a hypocrite but one hell of a sinner as well.

Machang MP Saifuddin Nasution today alleged in the Dewan Rakyat that Pasir Mas MP Ibrahim Ali - famous for his virulent Malay rights activism - posesses shares in a gaming company owned by tycoon Vincent Tan.

The allegation was made when Saifuddin was debating the royal address, while initially urging the government to elaborate on gambling licences given to the Ascot Sports company.

"Pasir MAS, the 'true warrior', has shares (in that company) too. That is the real face of 'Malay warrior'. We will seek the Finance Ministry's explanation on this," said Saifuddin.

Ibrahim, who was present when Saifuddin made the allegation, shrugged it off.

According to Saifuddin, Ascot Sports was granted a 20-year licence to perform their operations, which included betting on horse racing, football and other sports.

He also took a dig at Umno, reminding the House that the Malay-based party which claimed to fight for Islam, the Malays and the nation was the one whose president was the PM when the permit was granted.

Billionaire's list causes commotion

The Dewan Rakyat broke out into commotion again today when Pasir Salak parliamentarian Tajuddin Abdul Rahman mentioned a few names in the Malaysian Business list of the country's wealthiest, intending to show that it is not only Umno people that are rich and famous.

He mentioned the name of business tycoons Robert Kuok and Ananda Krishnan, who are on the list, asking, "is this Umno? No, they are not Umno".

However, this invited interjections from Pakatan parliamentarians, notably Mahfuz Omar (PAS-Pokok Sena) who asked him to read the names in the 20th and 40th positions, which is former PM Mahathir Mohamed's son Mokhzani Mahathir (
right), and Premier Najib Razak's brother Nazir Razak respectively.

"Read the names on the 20th and 40th positions, those are Umno."

Tajudin retorted the opposition were envious of the wealth gained by those in Umno.

"Why are they mentioning number 20 and number 40? Anyone associated with Umno or the prime minister, they must be poor, is it?." he asked.
