  • If we can't fully cancel, at least cut our losses, and maybe just do from Klang to Kuantan first. The project can continue later when our finances are better, just like HSR. No problem with laying the groundwork today.

  • Our new AG should be able to advise the govt. the best way to deal with such lopsided Agreement and have it nullified. Surely, unconscionable terms in an agreement can be invalidated. Better still if it can be proven that there were elements of corruption/power abuse involved, the other party would be more than willing to settle it amicably.

  • FIND THE CORRUPTION. THEN DEFAULT.. DON' T PAY A SINGLE CENT IF ITS CORRUPT. ITS MULTINATIONAL FRAUD - legitimate investors will understand, its the crooks that will run away which is fine.
