Ming Court Crisis: A Close And Intimate Knowledge Of The Crisis Behind The Scene
by Alli Kawi
About This Book
Ming Court was the name of one of the luxury hotels in Kuala Lumpur. In March 1987, the very well camouflaged plot to toppled Datuk Abdul Taib Mahmud, the Chief Minister of Sarawak unfolded and Ming Court became the venue where 28 Assemblymen from Sarawak were accommodated and Room 707 of the hotel was turned into their operation room.
The author was directly involved in this crisis and had intimate knowledge of what had taken place behind the scenes. It was not a "sandiwara" (play acting) as most people were made to believe. It was a real political quarrel between Tun Abdul Rahman Yaakub, the former Tuan Yang Terutama (Head of State) Sarawak, and Datuk Abdul Taib Mahmud, the Chief Minister of Sarawak.
