Raja Mendeliar (Raja Mendeliar Kutty) was a traitor of Indian-descent who brought about the fall of the Malaccan Empire. In 1510, he started a rumour campaign against the Prime Minister, Tun Mutahir, that the latter was planning a coup against the Sultan of Malacca. As a result, Tun Mutahir and his whole family were put to death just because of one lie; distrust against Mendeliar and the Sultan by the people weakened the Malaccan government further and Malacca succumbed to the invasion by the Portuguese a year later.
600 years later, Mahathir bin Mohamed Iskandar Kutty, the former Prime Minister who governed with an iron fist for 22 years, is running a similar campaign as his Malayali ancestor in trying to vilify the current Prime Minister. He has brought down one Prime Minister who had refused to dance to his tune and accused the latter as being utterly corrupted – a claim Mahathir has never substantiated after the victim resigned. However, he apparently isn’t as smart as his ancestor was when trying to bring Najib Razak down and has been caught lying so many times and even had to change the goalpost so many times just to try an win a battle of perception.
The latest lie has been exposed by Big Dog and it shows how evil this modern age Mendeliar is.
According to the International Criminal Courts and Tribunals, Complimentarity and Jurisdiction, a Head of State, incumbent Head of Governmentand the incumbent Foreign Minister enjoy the privileges of immunity from the jurisdiction of any state as long as a crime committed, if any, is not in the form of genocide, war crimes or crimes against humanity.
In contrast, Mahathir, who is a former Head of Government, no longer enjoys such immunity. Any form of crime that he commits in and out of Malaysia will put him at risk of being arrested by any country that has signed a treaty with Malaysia.
Mahathir, the man so filled with hatred and vengeance is currently in Sarajevo, ironically for the 20th celebration of peace in Bosnia-Herzegovina. He traveled there using the Malaysian government’s private jet, a privilege the government has continued to accord this thankless and selfish man. I assume he still travels using a Malaysian diplomatic passport.
The government should revoke these privileges as he is just the same as any other Ah Kow, Ahmad and Ambalagan in Malaysia. He is a former Prime Minister and he should behave like one instead of trying to rule by proxy and destroy the unity of the people of this nation with his lies.
