MALAYSIAKINI: Pete, Najib & Rosmah

Tony Thien's report in Malaysiakini Settle it the Bidayuh way: Star chief is very cool! I can't resist highlighting it. This is Dr Patau Rubis' suggestion on how to settle the dispute between Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and his wife Rosmah and blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin over the truth of the matter relating to the Altantuya murder case.
-
Dr Patau Rubis says that he is prepared to sponsor the ceremony if the trio will come and swear before a Bidayuh ketua gawai in the Kampung Gumbang baruk (head house) to the truth of their statements to the authorities.
-
According to him, the Bidayuh belief is that anyone who tells a lie will die within three weeks. Now that is swift justice!
-
But if you are scared to come, let the court decide the matter,” he added, referring to Najib and his wife Rosmah's denial about any link to the Altantuya murder case. In law this procedure is called a trial in absentia. Very cool, indeed!

I was just intrigued that Pete's stand and his Stat Dec has so riveted our country that even Bidayuh traditional dispute resolution processes are being proposed. But you have to admit that it brings you a wan smile...at least the original story did for me.

Oh Boy - you beat me to it!
I too wanted to do the same - that was a damn cool idea.
I'm sure it's anybody's guess as to who'll be c4ed to Bidayuh hell before the 3 weeks are over ....

Reminds me of a suggestion to have a cow-milking competition by an Indian politician Named Lalloo Prasad or something like that), to decide on the Indian PM after Rajiv Gandhi got blown to bits like Altantuya!
Never knew we too had such nincompoops as "leaders" .....
