Police Abuse MMS: Noh Reprimanded

The Prime Minister was swift to put things back in order for the second time in the space of a week when he reprimanded the Deputy Minister of Internal Security Minister for his insensitive, inappropriate and brainless 'Go Home' comment.

Pak Lah: Noh statement totally against Government's policy on visitors

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has reprimanded Datuk Noh Omar for his remarks that foreigners and visitors should go home if they thought the Malaysian police were cruel.

Abdullah, who is also the Internal Security Minister, said the remarks by his deputy minister were "highly inappropriate".

"His statement is totally against the government's policy and stand on foreign visitors and tourists, where we welcome all of them whether to holiday, study, seek medical treatment or to do business here.

"Members of the Government should be more sensitive and careful when making any statement in connection with this issue.

"I have reprimanded Datuk Noh Omar on this matter," the Prime Minister told Bernama. [...]

Although the deputy minister did offer an apology if anyone was offended by his comments, I feel it's way too late. It was too late once he uttered those words. He should never had made those comments. The damage is already done and nothing can restore the situation to what it was before. You should have thought of it first before opening your pie-hole and creating more problems. Worse still, he even dare push the blame on the media for misintepreting him! Now, you listen to this clip and tell me he didn't say those comments and the media twisted his words. I do hope the media will go after his head for this! Once again, he proves himself to be such an idiot!
