For readers following the Cigar Room episode involving the alleged molest of a lounge promoter by a former Cabinet minister, they thought the show had ended when the woman said in a statement that it was a mistake. She was unwell that night and the senior politician had just acted in jest, as he has been for the past five years.
So, it was a case of potong steam for many Malaysians following the Cigar Room episode. She said she was used to the politician's jokes and "rough ways" and had never objected to his actions nor felt offended by it previously.
Now the police are saying they will proceed with the investigations. See The Star for the City CID's probe into the allegations against the Datuk Seri.
But don't hope for a fantastic ending. The case is as good as closed despite the police bravado. If the woman isn't complaining anymore, why should the Attorney-General want to pursue a case he can't win?
