"God is great ...my prayers for a moral victory have been answered" -- Tun Salleh Abas said.
Tun Salleh Abas who was sacked as Lord President in 1988 said to us (*this blogger and Ahirudin Attan) when asked how he'd feel if there was no apology forthcoming from the Prime Minister at tonight's dinner jointly hosted by the government and the Malaysian Bar Council.
The former Lord President is not expecting any apology from the PM tonight.
"If Pak Lah doesn't say sorry it doesn't matter to me. Let the public judge and God deal with them.
"I've waited for 20 years...God wants to give me only that, and they cannot open their hearts to say sorry, what can I do. Perhaps God has not opened their hearts.
"Why should I feel sad about this....I have been sad enough," said Tun Salleh, a deeply religious man.
He will be at the dinner, accompanied by his wife, Toh Puan Azimah and their children.
*Ahirudin and this blogger were with Tun Salleh during a session for the writing of his book.
