BN: And we have Pakatan's secret documents, too

Pakatan Rakyat is not the only coalition claiming to have its hands on its rival’s confidential strategy documents for the 13th general election.

NONEBN secretary-general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the ruling federal coalition has Pakatan’s secret documents, all the way to its candidacy list.

"But we don't make noise, like the other side," he told reporters today in Kuala Lumpur.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng had last weekend claimed that he had obtained secret documents about BN's election preparations in Penang.

'We will identify leak' 

In response, Tengku Adnan said that he has written to all 13 BN party presidents on the matter to remind them to be more careful with confidential documents.

“I fear that they leave these documents everywhere and people secretly photocopy them,” he said.

He added that BN is investigating the leak, and would be able to pinpoint where the document came from if they can see the document Lim says is in his possession.

“The person who leaked it forgot that we have a coding system at the headquarters that can identify each documents’ origins,” he said.

However, he said the leak is not damaging as “it is only shows the stage of readiness”.

Tengku Adnan, who is Putrajaya MP, added said this after accepting 5,000 copies of the book 100 Wira Negara by Mubarak president Abdul Aziz Rahman.

The books were given to Umno in exchange for RM200,000 to fund Mubarak’s activities.

The book, on 100 notable Malaysians in history, will be given away to delegates at the Umno annual general meeting next month.

‘Mubarak not after seats’

In his speech, the MP offered his apologies on behalf of Umno members to the NGO made up of former Umno elected representatives, who had been accused of lobbying for candidacy.

He said this was due to Mubarak’s diligence in assisting Umno and BN win the next general election.

“This is not Mubarak’s intention. I am sorry and I hope you don’t take it to heart.

“You have once been (active in) Umno and understand the attitudes of our friends at the grassroots,” he said.

At the press conference he said that while it is not Mubarak’s intention, this does not mean they cannot be selected if they are winnable candidates.

Meanwhile, Abdul Aziz said that Mubarak is actively campaigning by targetting NGOs, especially those representing veterans from the armed forces, police and retired civil servants.
