  • You admitted your wrong doing and it was recorded. Should the courts imposed RM5 million you would have still paid the amount of RM 5 million cause you want to avoid jail time as that would disqualified you as an MP ie Member of Pelesit. It's party time to celebrate now as on the horizon there's money to be made.
