The Silver Lining In The Silverstate

It has been a wonderful week in my home state, Perak. First, we welcomed a newly minted Dato' from Jelapang and now we see two ADUNs free to serve their constituents again. Well, as they say; "Behind every dark cloud there is a silver lining". The Perakians will ultimately decide.

This is just in from Malaysiakini:

Perak PKR-turned-independent reps acquitted

The Ipoh Sessions Court has today acquitted two former PKR state assemblypersons on corruption charges without their defence being called.

Judge Azhaniz Azman said that the prosecution has failed to prove prima facie case and ordered them to be released immediatedly.

Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu, 58 (Changkat Jering) and Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi, 53 (Behrang) were charged along with three others - former PKR state assemblypersons PKR politician Usaili Alias, 56, former Perak Tengah district councillor Zul Hassan, 46, and contractor Fairul Azrim Ismail, 31.

The celebrated jumping frog of Jelapang got a Datukship while the celebrated jumping frogs of Changkat Jering and Behrang were acquitted of corruption charges. So what else is new in Bolehland?
