Four nabbed over arson in Muar

Firefighters inspect the damage on a prayer hall in Muar.

Four men, one of whom is a son of a police officer, were arrested today over the arson attempts at two suraus in Muar, Johor on Jan 21, according to the Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar.

In the attacks on Thursday, the Sirratulrahim Surau in Kampung Sabak Awor, Jalan Ismail suffered burns to a window and some curtains, while another surau in Parit Beting was also badly damaged, with scorch marks found on a door, a window, and carpet.

A police forensics team which took evidence at the first surau discovered traces of splashed kerosense at the site, leading to suspicions that the fires were intentionally set.

Political leaders have been quick in condemning the attacks in Johor.

Via a statement, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng slammed “the destructive behaviour of the perpetrator of such irresponsible attacks, who clearly intended to provoke suspicions among our multi-racial and multi-religious communities”.

The latest attacks come on the back of a lull in tempers following a Dec 31, 2009 High Court ruling that allowed Catholic weekly Herald to use the term “Allah” to describe the Christian God in their Bahasa Malaysia section.

The ruling sparked Muslim outrage across the country, as some Muslims claim that the term “Allah” is exclusive to Islam and must not be used by anyone else.

In the wake of the on-going controversy and prior to Thursday’s attacks, nine churches, a mosque, a surau, a Sikh temple and a convent school have been damaged by fire, paint or stones since Jan 8.

The government has appealed against the decision and obtained a stay of execution.

Arsonists attack 2 Suraus in Muar

It was reported that 2 Suraus in Muar have been damaged due to arson attempts. Both the Suraus which are located in the Sabak Aur and Parit Beting respectively are situated about 1 kilometer away from each other. According to Mislan Kamani, the Muar district officer called for all not to speculate and to be calm saying that the attempts were done by “some crazy people who want to create fear and disunity among Malaysians in Muar.

The incidents are not related to race or religion,” In the Surau Sirrahtulrahim in Sabak Aur, the curtain and some parts of the wall got burnt. According to Idris Sehan, the village head, kerosene was splashed near the window. The surau in Parit Beting in Jalan Salleh had its window broken and door burnt. the Johor deputy police chief SAC I Datuk Jalaluddin Abdul Rahman said “No one should exploit the issue and the police should be allowed to handle the investigations. Police believed the two incidents were caused by the same people. Anyone with information can call Johor police at 07-2212999 or the Muar police at 06-9526001.


This is exactly what law abiding Malaysians are afraid of. We cannot afford a civil strife in Malaysia. Everyone loses....there are no winners. These culprits must be arrested without fail and be punished by the full weight of the law.

Track down agents to locate missing Indian nationals

Track down agents to locate missing Indian nationals Recently, when government announced that approximately 40,000 Indian nationals went missing once their visas-on-arrival expired, it has sparked concerns from various parties including the non-governmental organizations Tenaganita and Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF).

Tenaganita director Dr Irene Fernandez commented that instead of focusing solely on these missing citizens, perhaps government should also track down the agents who are responsible in bringing them into the country. This is largely due to the fact that some of these Indian nationals were given inaccurate information by the agents when they first enter the country.

It is commonly known that certain illegal workers in the country are conned by the agents as they were often convinced to pay large sum of money since the conman usually sweet-talked them into believing that there are high salary jobs available in the country.

Once they arrived in the country, the workers realized that they have been conned. Left with no other option, these foreigners are forced to stay without visa or permit. Dr Irene said government must act wisely by tracking down the agents to find the missing Indian nationals. Most of the time, Indian nationals ended up working at restaurants or in plantation industry.

She pointed out that government must get to the core of the problem to solve it once and for all. Besides Dr Irene, MEF executive director Samsudin Baradan also pointed out that harsh punishments are needed to curb human trafficking problem in the country.


the 40,000 thambi is getting free converting into Malaysian citizen like most Indon and it supported by Najis, to help BN Najis to win more tickets in GE13

The problem all these agents are either UMNO cronies or pocket liners of somebody in authority. Its all very clear cut at the way the foreigners are brought in without any control or limited control. Any responsible government will have taken enough measures to ensure that foreigners will not end up as illegals and messed up the security of the country, except in bolehland where it is happening over and over again







Malaysia being ‘sold’ bit by bit, laments Dr M

Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed today lashed out at the ruling government for inaction over the issue of sand-smuggling throughout the country.

Dr Mahathir claims that this practice has been going on for some time but corrupt officials have managed to keep a close lid on the matter.

“I read in the papers about the Works Minister saying 500 lorries delivering sand to Singapore. No one has said anything on that, seems like they are ‘agreeing’ to it. Well I know it is not 500, it is actually 700 lorries,” he said to reporters during a press conference.

“If I didn’t draw people’s attention to this issue, no one would speak up, they all are too busy worried about whether they would get their Datukship,” quipped Dr Mahathir.

The elderly statesmen maintained the validity of his facts, saying that the main sources were the Works Minister (Datuk Shaziman Mansor) as well as a “friend”, whose identity he declined to reveal as he did not want to get his friend “into trouble”.

He claimed that Malaysia was being sold bit by bit to foreigners, citing the sand-smuggling issue as an example.

“What these people are doing is selling a little bit of Malaysia at one time, dig, keep digging Malaysia and give her to other people.”

When asked to comment on the recent arrests made by the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Crimes Commission) where 38 suspects were arrested for sand smuggling, Dr Mahathir expressed his relief that action had finally been taken.

“I’m glad ... I have seen so many places where people are digging sand and no action is taken, particularly in Langkawi.

“People were digging sand near the airport, so I told the MB (Mentri Besar) that doing so was going to affect the airport roads.”

According to him, these illegal activities were under the supervision of a “powerful individual.”

“I was told this man was a very powerful man. I don’t care whether he is powerful, you dig sand near the airport you are going to damage the airport.

“They must have some reasons for allowing this chap to dig sand. The government never takes actions,” lamented Dr Mahathir.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) yesterday arrested four more people, all of them government officers, and raised to 38 the number of people detained over the theft and smuggling of sand by a syndicate.

It is believed that three of them were caught in Pahang and one in Johor.

The MACC said 20 of the 38 people had been remanded for between four and seven days while the rest had been released on MACC bond after their statements were recorded.

The Kajang Magistrate’s Court had remanded nine of the suspects for five days from yesterday to assist in the MACC investigation.

Among the ones arrested was a senior aide to a PKR politician in the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat state government.

Hussein Ahmad, the executive secretary to Selangor Agriculture, Natural Resources and Entrepreneural Development Committee chairman Yaakob Sapari was detained at his office in Shah Alam, during the start of the crackdown by Malaysian graft-busters.


Why blame others when he himself has squandered the wealth of our country on frivolous mega projects?

His message has indirectly promoted the cause of Al Qaeda and Jemaah Islamiah and may easily influence those with misguided faith to do damage.

given the tense situation in Malaysia on the Allah issue, Mahathir should be charged under sedition act and be locked up in Kamunting under ISA to safeguard our racial harmony and safety.

Maybe he should make arrangements to sell sand from Palestine to Singapore. One way of making more money that can be used to terrorise the israelis.

Please tell this person that he should examine his son bank account to see how much of sand his son had received from Singaporeans when he was Prime Minister.

Dr Mahathir claims that this practice has been going on for some time but corrupt officials have managed to keep a close lid on the matter.

All this started during your time Tun, at that time you were too busy with your PM post to be retained and you close one eye so that everybody will support you. So you know how it coming back to you now. Don't cry Mahathir, God is great - you can cheat people not God.

Tun Dr.M,there is an ariticle in The Bangkok Post about you written by none other than your once upon a time good friend,Mr.George Soros.

Mr.Soros has alleged that you are the Marcos of Malaysia and the No.1 most corrupted person in asia,the nomination rotating between you and

Mr.Suharto of Indonesia.Mr.Soros also commented that Malaysia is blessed with Oil and natural resources but the devil sent a Mr.Mahathir to squander it off,resulting in Malaysia Ringgit is less than half the value of Singapore. After bleeding Malaysia dry,Tun Dr.M you are jealous of Singapore success
under MM Lee Kuan Yew,just admit it lah..

Jews rule the world by proxy. Who're the proxy? Mangkok Berayun Team?

The 2003 meeting of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, a world-wide organization of 57 Muslim states, took place in Malaysia. The long-time Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad opened the conference with a speech in which he asserted, among other things, that "today the Jews rule this world by proxy. They get others to fight and die for them." To help put this analysis in historical context, he added that the Jews "invented and successfully promoted Socialism, Communism, human rights and democracy so that persecuting them would appear to be wrong, so they may enjoy equal rights with others."

Who're the proxy?

1997: Mahathir overcame opposition from the Malaysian Parliament and Islamic groups to bring an Israeli cricket team to Malaysia in 1997. He also sponsors Israeli students on two-week study tours to Malaysia "because we believe there should be understanding between Muslims and Jews." (Los Angeles Times, April 24, 1999).

A SPECIAL MOMENT TOGETHER: Three VIP daughters (from left) Nori Abdullah, Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir and Hanis Tun Hussein, being at the International Consultation on Trends in Family Law Reform in Islamic Countries in Kuala Lumpur gave them the opportunity to share a common platform. And Sisters in Islam executive director Zainah Anwar, standing, could not be more pleased.

Muslim family laws that govern the relationships between men and women based on a framework of the superior husband and the subordinate wife are unsustainable in the twenty-first century. Malaysia must also institute legal reform if it is to fulfil its commitments to international human rights standards. Finally, our Islamic family laws must reflect the realities of modern life. - Sisters in Islam? or The Mangkok Berayun Team?

Sodomy II an old script with new actors

PKR vice president Sivarasa Rasiah has accused the public prosecutor of malice for insisting on charging Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim for sodomy despite flimsy evidence.

“The new case replays an old script with new actors,” wrote Siva in an article ahead of Anwar’s sodomy trial due to begin on January 25.

“The current script also shows the previous episode’s features of political interference, manipulation of officers in the AG’s Chambers and police, and falsification of evidence all arising from a political conspiracy to stop Anwar’s political career.”

Former premier Mahathir Mohamad had in 1998 shocked the nation by jailing Anwar – then his fast-rising deputy – on corruption and sodomy charges that Anwar has denied, counter-accusing Mahathir of framing him to kill his political career.

“Finally, after his nemesis, former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamed, went into reluctant retirement in October 2003, Anwar was acquitted and released on 2 September 2004 at the final level of his appeal against the conviction for sodomy. Now the nightmare is starting all over again,” said Siva.

The new script and a meeting with Najib

On July 16, 2008, Anwar was arrested on a new sodomy charge, after a police report was lodged against him on June 28 by a junior aide in his office, Saiful Bukhari. Again, Anwar has denied the charges, accusing the Umno-BN government of trying to scuttle his political comeback.

In his police report of June 28, 2008, made at Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Saiful had claimed that he was sodomised by Anwar against his will on the afternoon of Thursday 26th June 2008 at a condominium in Bukit Damansara. His police statement also appears to allege that he had been assaulted about 8 to 9 times against his will by Anwar over the previous two months.

“This immediately raises suspicion as to why this so-called “victim” is sodomised 8 to 9 times against his will over two months and yet made no complaint to the authorities. During that time, he was in regular contact with Anwar and all the other office staff at Anwar’s office,” said Siva.

Siva, who is also the MP for Subang and part of Anwar’s legal team, also pointed out that on Wednesday, June 25, 2008, the day before the last so-called assault on Thursday, Saiful had met with a senior police officer, Senior Assistant Commissioner Rodwan Mohd Yusof ( then Deputy Director of Criminal Investigation Dept of the Royal Malaysian Police Force, now CPO Melaka ), at the Concorde Hotel in Kuala Lumpur in Room 619.

Rodwan, who has declined to comment when asked why he met Saiful, had also played a key part in Anwar’s 1998/9 cases. According to Siva, Rodwan was notorious for his role in illegally using Anwar’s blood sample for DNA testing and was also embroiled in allegations of planting fabricated DNA traces on the infamous mattress brought to court.

Apart from Rodwan, Saiful had also met Prime Minister Najib Razak (then the Deputy Prime Minister) a few days prior to the alleged sodomy.

“What is interesting about this revelation is that Najib initially denied meeting Saiful to the media, then admitted it, then said the meeting took place because Saiful (a university drop-out) was asking him for assistance to get a scholarship, and then told the media that Saiful said he was sodomised by Anwar and looked traumatised during their meeting,” Siva said.

No signs of penetration

Saiful’s behaviour after the so-called assault on that Thursday also raises questions.

According to Siva, the next morning, Saiful went to the Anwar’s office as usual. He made no complaints to anyone and appeared quite normal.Later that day, he attended an Anwar Ibrahim Club event at Anwar’s house, at which Anwar was also present. There he helped serve coffee to the dozen or so persons present, showed no signs of fear or anxiety, and was able to sit and stand without showing any signs of discomfort.

The next morning, Saiful went to the Anwar’s office as usual. He made no complaints to anyone and appeared quite normal. Later that day, he attended an Anwar Ibrahim Club event at Anwar’s house, at which Anwar was also present. There he helped serve coffee to the dozen or so persons present, showed no signs of fear or anxiety, and was able to sit and stand without showing any signs of discomfort.

But at 2 pm the following day, which was a Saturday, Saiful went to a private hospital called Pusat Rawatan Islam (Pusrawi ) in Jalan Tun Razak. There he complained to one Dr Osman that he had had pain in his anus for a few days and that a “plastic” item had been inserted.

A proctoscopy examination by Dr Osman showed no physical signs of penetration and a normal anus and rectum. After the examination, he then told Dr. Osman he had been sodomised by a VIP and was then advised to go for an examination at a government hospital.

“Despite Hospital Kuala Lumpur being virtually across the road, it took Saiful two and a half hours to get there,” said Siva.

At HKL, where he reported that he had been sodomised, he was examined by three specialist doctors, which was a very unusual procedure in itself. The three doctors, in their official report, have stated that there were no ““no conclusive clinical findings suggestive of penetration to the anus”, again reinforcing the conclusions of Dr Osman.

“Any objective investigator would have understood that a prosecution for sodomy would get nowhere in the light of such clear medical evidence. No objective prosecutor would have allowed the case to progress,” said Siva.

“Here we see the opposite – the investigation being driven fully, although the medical evidence from the outset ruled out penetration. The malice in the investigation further confirms the involvement of political motives."

Wary of faked DNA evidence

Siva also said there were no clinical findings even suggestive of penetration, any DNA report purporting to show that Anwar’s DNA was found in Saiful’s rectum would be highly suspect.

"Such a report would in fact raise suspicion about the credibility of such DNA evidence – that such evidence had been fabricated or tampered with, which is easy to do with DNA evidence, especially when the perpetrators are the investigators themselves, as in the 1998 trials," Siva stressed.

“This investigation was pursued despite the medical findings, which would have been made available immediately to police investigators. Swabs taken from Saiful suspiciously took two days to reach the chemist lab for analysis.

“We know now that the prosecution will rely on purported DNA evidence to attempt to prove that Anwar was involved in an act of sodomy with Saiful without his consent. How a 61-year-old man with a bad back can force himself on a fit and tall 24-year-old will be an interesting question for all observers of this political trial.”

PKR Kuala S'gor stronger without the 13 troublemakers

PKR leaders have lashed out at yet another bold-faced attempt to destabilize the Selangor state government by discrediting Mentri Besar Khalid Ibrahim.

According to Tuan Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud, the head of PKR Kelana Jaya, the statements made by Arshad Abu Bakar, Khalid's deputy in PKR Kuala Selangor, were false.

“The statement that the Kuala Selangor division has been dissolved with the resignation of 13 committee members is completely untrue,” Tuan Syed Shahir said in an email received by Harakahdaily..

“The Parti Keadilan Rakyat constitution Section 25.8 clearly states that any dissolution of a division can only be made after an extraordinary general meeting of the division. If it is true that the 13 committee members have resigned, then an EGM must be held to elect a lineup in accordance with Section 25.9 of the party constitution.”

On Wednesday, Arshad had told a press conference that 13 of the 16 elected division committee members, including the youth and wanita chiefs, had quit.

Claiming that they have lost confidence in Khalid, Arshad said the division had also been disbanded.

Nevertheless, despite the news being played up the mainstream media, PKR leaders including Khalid himself were unfazed.

The MB pointed out that all 13 were Umno members, who had joined PKR in the hope of securing high office and benefits.

But unhappy with the party's priority on meritocracy, they were now returning to Umno.

“The claim of loss of confidence is nothing unusual. Perhaps the statement was written by Umno for him to read,” Khalid had said in a caustic response.

He also revealed that an election to choose a new committee was already due in March.

“That is why some want to quit their posts,” he said, adding that it was better for those who were unhappy to leave rather than cause trouble for other members.

The MB also said PKR would have no problems replacing the 13, pointing out that the Kuala Selangor division has already grown to 3,000 members, compared with just 100 in early 2007.

Kit Siang urges condemnation of Muar attacks

DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang (picture) has called on Malaysians to condemn today’s arson attacks on two suraus in Johor and put a stop to the ongoing “madness” of attacks on houses of worship believed to be linked to the controversial “Allah” ruling.

Police had found traces of kerosene at the Sirratulrahim Surau in Kampung Sabak Awor, Jalan Ismail which had a window and curtains burnt, while the Parit Beting surau suffered worse damage. Both the suraus are in Muar.

“Malaysians regardless of race, religion, political affiliation or region must condemn these two surau arson attacks in Muar in the strongest possible terms,” Lim said in a statement.

Nine churches, a mosque, a surau, a Sikh temple and a convent school have been damaged by fire, paint or stones since Jan 8.

“Many Malaysians are dismayed by the conduct of the Home Minister, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, as he is blamed not only for allowing the situation to get out of hand (by allowing the) demonstrations on sensitive religious issues.

“He has also failed to deliver his assurance that “the situation is under control” which had been repeatedly marred by the spate of arson and vandalism of places of worship in various states,” Lim said.

Lim, who is Ipoh Timur MP, also blasted the prime minister and his deputy for their absence during the time of the crisis.

Both were overseas for work at the time the tension over the High Court ruling that allowed Catholic weekly to use “Allah” in its Bahasa Malaysia edition was at its height.

Lim said with the latest spate of arson against the two suraus in Muar, the time has come for more proactive response in the part of the government

“(This is so) that the country does not continue to suffer adverse international publicity detrimental to the national effort to attract foreign investors, tourists and students.”

One of the major proposals made by the opposition and NGOs to resolve the ongoing “Allah” conflict and other sensitive issues pertaining to religion is the formation of an Inter-Religious Council.

But the government have so far been slow to respond to such calls and Lim said this snail-paced response poses a “a serious and irremediable setback for the 1Malaysia slogan and policy of Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak.”

Lim said the failure of Najib’s Cabinet to address the issue in its meeting yesterday reflected the government’s lack of political will to resolve a conflict which has polarised the nation.

“If an Inter-Religious Council cannot be formed now to resolve the Allah controversy, then there is no way such a council could be revived under the Barisan Nasional (government).

“Although it was first established by Tunku in the first decades of nationhood – (this marks) a serious and irreparable damage to Najib’s 1 Malaysia slogan,” Lim added.

Arson suspected in two Muar surau fires

Two suraus in Muar, Johor were damaged in suspected arson attacks early this morning, weeks after similar attacks against churches, believed to be linked to the controversial “Allah” ruling.

Police found traces of kerosene in the Sirratulrahim Surau in Kampung Sabak Awor, Jalan Ismail which had a window and curtains burnt, while the Parit Beting surau suffered worse damage.

“There is a black mark on the door,” Muar Deputy OCPD Lee Choon Guan told The Malaysian Insider when contacted at the Parit Beting surau. Apart from the door, he said a carpet and windows were scorched. Stones were also reportedly thrown at the building.

The police forensics team is now taking evidence the surau.

Lee said police are cautious in linking the incident to a spate of attacks on houses of worship over the divisive “Allah” ruling.

“My forensic team found traces of splashed kerosene so it may have originated from outside the surau’s compound,” he said at the scene of the first attack.

Lee’s superior, Muar OCPD Mohammed Nasir Ramli, had earlier refused to confirm if the first incident was a result of an arson attempt.

He told The Malaysian Insider that the Sirratulrahim Surau had suffered minor damages in the pre-dawn blaze.

“We are still investigating... we don’t know if it was attacked, we can’t say that. Let the police do its investigations first,” he said in a phone interview.

The Muar police chief said three youths from the area had discovered the damage at about 3am and reported it to the police.

The Johor police are expected to release an official statement later this evening.

Nine churches, a mosque, a surau, a Sikh temple and a convent school have been damaged by fire, paint or stones since Jan 8.

Police obtained a seven-day remand order yesterday for eight youths arrested in connection with the first attack on the Metro Tabernacle church, on Jan 8. Two were brothers who suffered burns said to be a result of the attack. Another person detained is their uncle.

The attacks came in the wake of the Dec 31, 2009 High Court ruling that allowed Catholic weekly Herald to use the term “Allah” to describe the Christian God in their Bahasa Malaysia section. The government has appealed against the decision and obtained a stay of execution.

In a statement today, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng condemned “the destructive behaviour of the perpetrator of such irresponsible attacks, who clearly intended to provoke suspicions among our multi-racial and multi-religious communities”.

“We urge the police to step up its investigation and monitoring mechanism to bring the perpetrators to justice, and to prevent any further similar incident from happening in order to safeguard our harmonious way of life,” the Penang chief minister said.

11 committee from S’gor MB’s division quits, claims to be disbanded

The PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) of Kuala Selangor, led by Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim was reportedly ‘crippled’ after some 11 of its committee members resigned citing that they have lost confidence in the leadership of Khalid Ibrahim. this includes the heads of the Youth and Wanita wings as well. Arshad Abu Bakar, the deputy chief of the division said that with only 3 elected leaders left which includes the Mentri Besar, himself and Faridah Abdul Rahman, the division is disbanded. He said “The 11 committee members, and division Youth chief Nazarudin Darmawan and Wanita head Fauziah Sulaiman had resigned from their posts between November last year and Jan 18 this year. However, those who quit their posts remained as PKR members but had lost confidence in Abdul Khalid to lead the Kuala Selangor division. They claimed that Abdul Khalid had placed Kuala Selangor PKR in disarray as he failed to build a strong management foundation for the division. The division had not held its committee meeting in the last 14 months. As a result, there had been no activities carried out to strengthen the party.”

Abdul Khalid though denied that the division had disbanded as claimed by Arshad. He said “There was no meeting held to disband the division. The election to choose a new committee will be held in March. That is why some want to quit their posts. The excuse of losing confidence is nothing unusual...or perhaps the statement was written by Umno for him (Arshad) to say out,"


umno said thy will wait for pr13 to take back selangor but it appears they are out in full force to take back selangor by hook or crook before the end of january by using RAKYAT's money!

Rais calls for Khalid Ibrahim to quit after his division ‘disbanded’

Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim, the Minister of Information Communication and Culture was quick to impose more damage to the PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) where he said that the dissolution of the Kuala Selangor PKR division after some 11 of its committee members resigned citing losing confidence in the leadership of branch chief Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim as a ‘slap for the party’.

He called on Khalid to step down and admit that he failed to lead his own division. He said "But whether the Selangor Menteri Besar is willing to do so is a matter of fact, and a matter of his personal stance. But to the rakyat (people), it is clear that he has no choice but to state that he has been defeated by his own components (division) and his party members and the local people. The dissolution of the PKR division showed the change in attitude of the people around Kuala Selangor who no longer trusted the party. The decision of the people in Kuala Selangor should be taken as an indicator by the PKR leaders who assumed that the people trusted them,


rais, nobody in umno voted for you when you stood in the umno elections
why haven't you quit?

Rais, Mongolian C4's balls are cheap, go have a good suck if you wish to stay on in the cabinet.
No much choice for you..a once double headed snake!

Flyover in ‘Opposition territory’ shows BN is fair, claims his constituency gets the least-Nong Chik

Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin, the Minister of Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing, in launching the new flyover in the city that linked Jalan Dewan Bahasa with Jalan Hang Tuah reported that the projects, which cost RM91million has been completed 10 months ahead of schedule. The project involves 2 flyovers, a pedestrian walkway and traffic light systems involving the Jalan Dewan Bahasa - Jalan Hang Tuah - Jalan Maharajalela and Jalan Loke Yew cross road was constructed to ease the traffic congestion in that area. Nong Chik said “This is the spirit of 1Malaysia, which is putting ‘People First, Performance Now’, as encapsulated by our Prime Minister and this goes to show that the Barisan Nasional government does not choose favourites. The Bukit Bintang constituency reaps the most benefits as it gets the most allocations for facilities even though it is under the Opposition. In fact, Lembah Pantai gets the least,”

Nong Chik is the Umno division head of Lembah Pantai. Coincidentally, the Member of Parliament for Lembah Pantai is Nurul Izzah Anwar from PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat), who is the daughter of opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Nurul Izzah defeated Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil in the last March 8 General Election.








Waitress said she was molested by a ghost instead of a former minister

An ex-minister who is accused of molesting a waitress at a Kuala Lumpur club last year turned out to a misunderstanding only. In an exclusive interview published by Malaysian Mirror, the waitress refuted her statement previously and clarified that the former minister did not molest her. She praised him for being a gentleman.

The waitress described the incident and said that she felt someone touched her backside. Initially, she protested but since she failed to push the hand away, the waitress screamed out loud. Subsequently, the management turned on the lights and she found that the only one who was standing close to her is the former minister.

When asked what made her changed her mind and thought it was just a misunderstanding, the waitress said the minister together with 20 police personnel and 12 lawyers that visited her a couple of days ago finally clarified the incident.

She was told that the club is in fact haunted as a drunkard old man was shot dead there for molesting a woman. The lawyers and police personnel told her there is a possibility that she was molested by the ghost.

The waitress refused to believe it when they related the incident to her. But nevertheless, they brought along a former waitress who experienced the same situation some time ago. She was told that the same ex-minister was also standing next to that particular victim. Later on, she was told that the ghost was actually an enemy of the ex-minister.

Hence, the same situation tend to occur whenever the ex-minister is in the club. Currently, the waitress is no longer working in club since the kind-hearted ex-minister decided to help her to forget the unhappy experience in the club.

The former minister gave her a condominium, expensive car as well as a cheque for RM1 million for he blamed himself over what happened in the club.

Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, the Home Minister said that the police will continue to find those who are involved in the recent church attacks occurring in various states around the country. This came after some 8 individuals were arrested for the arson attacks at the Metro Tabernacle church in Desa Melawati.

We realize the negative impact and consequences on the people and country if the matter is not handled prudently. As such, I wish to advise all quarters, particularly political leaders, to exercise caution and be prudent and responsible when making statements on the issue,”

Malaysia inflation in 2010 seen at 1-2pc

The Malaysian economy does not need any more stimulus packages and inflation in the country is unlikely to exceed 2 per cent, the country’s second finance minister said.

“Based on the fiscal policy and monetary policy, we believe inflation will remain at between 1 and 2 per cent and we don’t think there is a need for more stimulus packages,” Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah (picture) told reporters on the sidelines of a business conference today.

Malaysia is expected to be among the last Asian economies to raise interest rates, with analysts expecting rate increases only in late 2010 on subdued inflationary pressure and weak demand conditions.

Asked if Malaysia was considering an international bond offering, Datuk Seri Husni told Reuters: “We are looking into it. I cannot give you the figures now.”

Malaysia last visited the offshore debt markets with a US$1.75 billion (RM6 billion) dollar bond sale in 2001.

Husni said the government was planning to divest stakes in 15-17 government-linked companies (GLC’s) across various sectors to boost competitiveness, and hoped to complete the process this year.

No investment bankers had been appointed for this yet, he added.

Last year, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak asked state funds to sell down stakes in government-linked companies that dominated the market, to boost the free float of a stock exchange that has lagged Asian peers.

“We want the private sector to play a bigger role and we are quite happy with the progress so far,” Husni said.

On the dollar, Datuk Seri Husni said although the Malaysian ringgit was strong, it was difficult to predict future trends.

The ringgit has appreciated 2.12 per cent against the US dollar so far this year.


2% inflation rate?

Maybe the prices in Putrajaya remains the same but elsewhere and EVERYTHING has gone up?!

Prices may not have gone up but have they seen the size of McDonald burgers lately as compared to 1 year ago?

Inflation is not about the amount of stuff you can buy but it is also the size you are getting.

 Why not said zero per cent, at least want to bullshit, do it all the way.

Something wrong somewhere or everything wrong everywhere.

What type of stupid calculation is that? From the comic script?

This is the "trained" economist. His gdp projection fell from 9% to 6% to 5% in less than a week.
Now he tells us inflation will be between 1% to 2%.
He is using that as an excuse to maintain low interest rates, bcos if the interest rates are raised there will be havoc all around. For a start the homeowners will be hit badly.

This guy must be mad! Petrol, toll and electricity are going up this year and food subsidies are going to be cut back. So how can inflation be 1%-2% this year? Learn how to lie properly, Datuk.

Police arrests 8 in Metro Tabernacle church arson attack

According to Federal Criminal Investigations Department director Commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Zinin, the police have arrested 8 men involved in the arson attack on the Metro Tabernacle Church recently. With the arrest of the 8, which includes 3 siblings would be vital to help them solve the case after a 25 year old man went to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for his follow up treatment for burns.

He said “Upon questioning the man, we conducted an operation where we arrested seven more men including another man who also had burns on his hand. All eight have been ordered to be remanded with us for seven days to facilitate investigations. They are being remanded for seven days from Wednesday to help in the investigation into the case under Section 436 of the Penal Code which carries a maximum jail term of 20 years upon conviction. We ask the people to remain calm and allow the police to conduct their investigation to enable us to send our papers to the attorney-general for subsequent action. Do not attempt to link the people arrested to the arson attacks on the other churches,"


Wahhhhhhhhhh! after a possible threat coming from US, the celaka UMNO cunts are trying to show a false front....especially, to impress the Western Powers.
Where are your balls UMNO bastards, take on the super power, there is nothing to fear if you have not abused human rights in this country and help to shield the possible UMNO paid arsonists. This time, you have gone one to far!!!!
Let see how it is like if US slapped the economic sanctions against us.....

Allah must be deeply offended by the of these false muslims from UMNO... insensitive to others' beliefs and burning their places of worship. Allah Must Be Angry!!!

MACC officers raid Selangor exco Yaakob’s office

A perturbed Yaakob Sapari(right) is seen consulting with his distressed Executive Secretary Hussein Ahmad.

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers raided the office of Selangor executive councillor Yaakob Sapari at the state secretariat building here this afternoon.

The five-member MACC team led by Superintendent Prem Raj Victor confiscated documents related to sand mining and the sale of sand by the state government.

Yaakob is the state Agriculture, Natural Resources and Entrepreneurial Development committee chairman.

The officers wanted to summon Yaakob’s executive secretary, Hussein Ahmad, to their headquarters for further questioning.

However, the state government will only allow him to be questioned during office hours as the High Court ruling that interrogations can only take place during office hours is still valid.

Officers confiscated documents related to sand mining only and not the sale of sand by the state government.

Yaakob later told reporters that the MACC officers are acting based on a report lodged against Hussein.

The report claimed that Hussein had illegaly approved a sand mining project and that the sand mining bosses had sponsored his trips to China.

“I have told them that my office does not have the power to approve any sand mining proposals and only the Semesta group can process the applications which will be presented to the Exco.

“His trip to Hangzhou, China was paid by the State government and approved by the exco.

“His trip to Beijing was also paid by a club under the state secretariat,” he said.

He added that MACC has no case against Hussein because they have documents proving he is innocent.

“This is straight forward. They are purposely doing this to bring shame to my office,” he said.

Yaakob also confirmed that three documents have been taken by the MACC — profile of the sand mining company and documents related to the China trips.

The MACC officers came with a warrant at 3.30pm and arrested Hussein.

Hussein was brought to MACC Putrajaya headquarters followed by state government lawyer Salim Bashir and Yaakob in seperate vehicles.


Whatever happened to all the police and MACC reports on Khir Toyo. So many police reports and proofs, are all of them classified as "N.F.A." because he is part of the 1Malaysia gang? How the hell can he afford a multi-million Balinese castle on his MB's salary. Or perhaps, the rot is so deep that MACC cannot afford to stir the dirt. Well, MACC! After all your deeds and actions thus far, all right-minded rakyat can see clearly that you are just another tool of UMNO, nothing more and nothing less.

how come we never heard of MACC raiding other state councilors of other BN states? It seems like MACC is only at work in Selangor and dead in other places.

If you want check and balance, if you want to minimize corruption, if you want the support of the MACC, vote PKR, PAS or DAP. This is the only way to ensure a clean, accountable and transparent Government! The excellent example from Penang plus the cooperation of the MACC to conduct checks very frequently on the PR reps ensure that they are on their toes always. Surprisingly, the MACC seem to condone corruption by BN rep. Something fishy? Working together? So the real deal Rakyat, is to vote PR, not only do we get a good and caring Government, the MACC also helps to ensure that corruption is minimized. PR is definitely the better deal!

This continuous raids program by MACC is part of the bigger plan to bring the PR Selangor State Government down but its not working because the current state government is fully aware of their enemy's strategy. More raids to come!

What happened to the Port Klang Free Zone scandal? MACC is too busy to defense their case of Teoh Beng Hock's and hooked small revolting fishes until no time to look into it?!

Come on, do something to deserve your salaries and befit the duties or prepared to be booted out!

We are sorry Karpal – MACC apologizes

Datuk Abdul Razak, the head of prosecution for the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) in the Teoh Beng Hock inquest has apologized to Karpal Singh for his remarks which came under fire for being insulting and insensitive. He reportedly said to Karpal ‘I can sit down, but you cannot even stand up’.

This drew some strong response from the MADD (Malaysians Against Discrimination of the Disabled) who demanded Razak to apologized. The MACC released a press statement which said “Abdul Razak retracted his words and apologised to Karpal for his comments.” On top of that, they are apologizing for the comments mad and that they never intended to offend anyone. Karpal said that Abdul Razak had already apologized after he made the comment where he was also cautioned by the judge. He said “I accept the apology by the MACC in good grace and the matter should be left at that,”


Abdul Razak retracted his words and apologised after great pressure was put to him by is still an apology. As humans, we still believe in "To err is human, to forgive is divine"

The Celaka Pemuda UMNO should learn from this...I doubt, samsengs are just samsengs...specimens of low mentality and korang  ajar!!!!

Kapal is not only a champion to the rakyat, Kapal too a champion for the handicapp ... but our MACC is the champion in bullying the handicapp.
