Yunus doth protest too much

"I am shocked – shocked! – to learn there is gambling going one here."

Devotees of the film Casablanca will recall these lines by the Chief of Police, a constant gambler at the club.

Mohammed Yunus's protestations of ignorance at the jiggery-pokery at Grameen Telecoms sound the same. Frankly, there's no cause for anyone to be shocked – or surprised. These things are par for the course.

To quote a pithier saying: "He doth protest too much".
