Sorry is the hardest word to say...

I bet this will happen again in the future.

For now, Datuk Shahrizat said the case is officially CLOSED.

(MalaysiaKini) DAP parliamentarian Fong Po Kuan, who bore the brunt of the sexist remarks made by her Barisan Nasional counterparts Bung Mokthar Radin and Mohd Said Yusof, is not satisfied with their public apology.

The two apologised to “all women in the country offended by the remarks” following a meeting with Women, Family and Community Development Minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil this morning.

However, Fong claimed that Bung Mokthar and Mohd Said were not sincere.

"They’re not sincere, especially after what happened on Wednesday where they apologised and later retracted their apologies," she said when contacted.

“They are not remorseful. They are just finding excuses to justify their behaviour by saying it was necessary to do it to defend the government during debates in the Parliament," she added.

Fong, who feels that an apology is not sufficient punishment for the duo, said she will discuss with DAP leaders regarding her next move.
