The Star reports: DVD censuring leaders not work of Dr M

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has denied any association with the purported distribution of a DVD that contained “severe criticism” against the present leadership.

An aide to the former prime minister said neither Dr Mahathir nor the Perdana Leadership Foundation were involved in the production or distribution of the DVD.

“The DVD has nothing to do with the foundation or Tun,” he said yesterday.

The aide added that he was not aware if Dr Mahathir had seen the DVD, which according to a website, was distributed during Umno's 60th anniversary celebration recently.

The recording allegedly showed Dr Mahathir criticising the current leaders for “lacking courage” at a closed-door session with 100 Malay professionals.
