Continuing our expose, we present compelling photographic evidence that the post-polls payouts in Penang were linked to state seats which the BN had won.
Study the numbers in the pale yellow notice stuck on the shutter of a shoplot off Jalan Sungai Dua in Penang, where the payouts were being made over three days last weekend. How many numbers in the two columns of the notice? Ten, right.
The BN won ten state seats in Penang out of 40. Coincidence?
Now compare each number (N1, N2, N3, N4, N5, N6, N21, N38, N39 and N40) with the election results of the state seats bearing the same numbers, which can be found on the Election Commission website. Go on, check it out yourself. Select “Pulau Pinang” under “Sila Pilih DUN untuk negeri”. You will see that all 10 seats were won by Umno-BN! Still a coincidence?
Moreover, a few of those who had turned up hoping to collect their money confirmed that the payments were only meant for those in areas where the BN had won.
Can you imagine something like this happening?
Now who is behind this scheme?
One of those facilitating the payouts, a youth in a red T-shirt, didn’t recognise Sim and Abdul Halim. The youth told the two politicians that the people lining up didn’t need to produce a voucher; the organisers would check their names against their own database.
One person who had turned up to collect his money or out of curiosity told the Aliran special investigation team that the vouchers were obtained during a 1Malaysia dinner. When asked whether these vouchers were related to the 1Malaysia lucky draws, he said, “Tak, ada satu meja ditepi di mana kami kena daftar.”
Another Penangite told an Aliran member:
This is true. BN held several (yes, SEVERAL) 1Malaysia dinners at Teluk Bahang (N40). I attended one just out of curiousity … the reps there gave the people RM160 vouchers and told them they could cash it when BN wins. I only stayed for a few minutes and felt that the whole experience was nauseating … enough for me to leave.
That is vote buying.
When a member of the Aliran special investigation team entered the little lot at the ground floor, he was told by one of the two men at the counter: “Empat ekor.”
But the numbers on the notice outside are certainly not four-digit numbers!
Reports have been lodged – but so far, not a squeak from the authorities.
