Malaysia MP dares BN leaders to accuse him openly of Justo meeting

PETALING JAYA - The cut and thrust continues with Democratic Action Party (DAP) MP Tony Pua hitting back at Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders, daring them to accuse him openly of meeting with former PetroSaudi International executive Xavier Andre Justo.

Pua posted the challenge on his Facebook page Saturday, along with a link to a news report of Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek urging opposition figures who allegedly met Justo in Singapore to deny their involvement to put the matter to rest.

"Well, I dare any BN minister to accuse me of meeting Justo," he wrote, telling his accusers not to beat about the bush.

Justo was reported to have met with Malaysian Opposition leaders and a media owner in Singapore prior to his arrest in Thailand on June 22.

The Swiss national, who is under investigation by Thai police for allegedly blackmailing his ex-employer PetroSaudi, has allegedly admitted to meeting people in Singapore to negotiate the handing over of certain documents in his possession.
