Justice Ian Chin's Allegations Meant To Shut Me Up, Says Dr Mahathir
He said even though he understood the reason for the allegations, he would continue to speak his mind and would answer all allegations in his blog.
"This is one of the ways to wallop me for speaking out but I am not going to stop. I will continue writing in my blog and it will be up to the people whether to believe (the allegations)," he told reporters here.
Asked whether he was planning to take action if the claims were not true, he said: "In which court should I bring up my case? I don't have the money and I don't know if I can win."
On Monday, Sibu High Court judge Datuk Ian Chin, while hearing a dispute over results of the March 8 general election in Sarawak, revealed that judges were threatened with dismissal if they did not make pro-government decisions.
On the statement by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak that he would not contest the Umno president's post and would instead accept the presidency by way of leadership transition, Dr Mahathir said Najib was taking the slow path to the presidency.
Najib told reporters in London on Thursday that he would not challenge Abdullah for the post. "I'm a true party man who believes in the traditional way of leadership transition," said Najib. (Bernama)
