Suhakam appointments: Window-dressing again?

In November 2009, Suhakam announced that the International Human Rights Committee of National Human Rights Commissions (‘ICC’) had retained Suhakam’s ‘A’ status as a national human rights institution.

Earlier, Suhakam faced being downgraded to ‘B’ status due to, amongst others, the lack of a clear and transparent appointment process for its commissioners. Despite its retention, the ‘A’ status will be subject to further scrutiny by the ICC later this year when it considers the application of the new selection process for commission members introduced by the Malaysian government.

Being downgraded to ‘B’ status would not augur well for a government seeking to portray the Malaysia as a progressive democracy. Joining the ranks of the Sri Lankan human rights commission in the protection and promotion of human rights cannot be seen, by any stretch of imagination, as a laudable achievement!

The government’s effort in avoiding the downgrade of Suhakam to ‘B’ status is contained in two amendments to the Human Rights Commission Act 1999 in March and July 2009. With respect to the appointment of commissioners, the Act was amended, albeit on the second bite at the cherry, to include a selection committee comprising a majority of members from civil society.

At first glance, the amendment seems to introduce a sound check-and-balance to the selection process. It is disappointing to note that there is one big catch. The Prime Minister is empowered to appoint the members of civil society to the selection committee!

There are two qualifications for public membership of the selection committee. The first is that the person must have ‘knowledge’ of human rights matters. Arguably, this encompasses anyone in ‘civil society’, which itself is not defined in the Act. The second disqualifies any persons who are ‘actively involved in politics and registered with any political party’ and any person who ‘is or was an enforcement officer’. What about cronies who fall outside the realms of these provisos? To my mind, there is plenty of leeway for abuse of the power of appointment.

Allegations of bias, whether unfounded or not, can easily be dispelled through timely disclosure of and transparency in the Prime Minister’s deliberations. If this be the case, will the Prime Minister’s department ensure that there is a transparent and participatory appointment process for the appointment of the selection committee?

Regrettably, the question has been answered. In a recent letter to a local NGO, the Suhakam chairman confirmed that the Prime Minister had already appointed the three members of civil society. Many of us in civil society are still shell-shocked with the covert, unilateral and non-inclusive manner in which these appointments have taken place.

This leaves me wondering if the amendments were just another ‘window dressing’ exercise by the Government. It is unfortunate that Suhakam would have to answer this very question come the ICC review this November.


Suhakam is a toothless tiger.

remember the incident in the ulu Sarawak in the upper Baram region where a young Penan was raped by the logging company worker. suhakam went there to investigate but their hands were tied and their mouth pasted with plaster. They have no guts to report what they have heard becos they are scare they will offend the sarawak gov't. Till today no one is been charge and Suhakam is still dumb.

I dare Suhakam re-investigate this case and if it warrant reopening this case, they MUST do it with good faith.
Since Suhakam is form they have never warn this gov't against using dirty tactic on their rakyat.
look at Kugan case, Teoh Beng Hock,Anwar Ibrahim and many more.It's time Suhakam walk the talk.

As long as UMNO remains in power, everything else will be window - dressing.

Just like 1 Malaysia.

BN must not be overzealous with opposition’s weaknesses, says Mustapha

Kelantan Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed said the party should not be overzealous with the weakness of the opposition.

He said BN should take advantage of the rift between leaders of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) and the DAP to gain the people’s trust.

“We have to strengthen our position so that the people will switch their trust to BN as the opposition coalition is falling apart,” he said here today.

Mustapa was commenting on the resignation of Bayan Baru Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim from PKR and the criticism by Kulim-Bandar Baharu Member of Parliament Zulkifli Noordin.

The Kelantan Umno liaison chairman said BN should strengthen its influence by implementing the 1Malaysia concept of People First, Performance Now by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak


slowly, slowly wait! Don't judge a book by its cover. PR is as strong as a rock. Don't think with a few resignation you are all ready to pound on PR. Day dreaming!
Just look at you own backyard!

what about giving back the PETROLEUM royalty back to Kelantan people.
Then we will judge the People 1st,Performance NOW.
Dont just talk rubbish.

Years late, but consortium gets another 2 to finish infantry complex

The Defence Ministry has ordered the consortium tasked to build the 7th Infantry Brigade complex in Skudai Camp, Gelang, to complete the project within 24 months.

Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said failing to do so would result in the ministry appointing new contractors to take over the project which was supposed to be completed in 2007.

He said Perbadanan Perwira Harta Malaysia Bhd, the subsidiary of the Armed Forces Fund Board, could be asked to take over the project under the “build, lease and transfer” arrangement without incurring additional costs to the government.

He was speaking to reporters after opening the Johor Ex-servicemen Cooperative in Simpang Renggam, 71km from here.

According to the 2002 Federal Audit Report, the project, carried out by a consortium of two companies, began construction in May 2000.

The consortium, however, stopped the construction of the RM256 million project in 2003 at 18.3 per cent progress.

The delay caused the problems of erosion in the area and flooding in Kampung Poh Chi Leng and Kampung Baru Skudai each time there was rain.

Ahmad Zahid said the ministry was also looking into the dilapidated condition of the Ulu Tiram combat training centre.

He said a new contractor would be appointed in 90 days to continue with the construction of the centre’s new facilities worth RM20 million.

Earlier in his speech he called on 18,000 ex-servicemen to join the cooperative movement to benefit from its programme.


"According to the 2002 Federal Audit Report, the project, carried out by a consortium of two companies, began construction in May 2000."""

After 10 years of delay..and yet given another 2 years!!!!!
What kind of administration is this?????

Another failed BN project brought to you by the BN government. So 2 groups now get to share in the booty. First consortium did not complete taken their share, now the 2nd consortium.... malaysia boleh....

BN, PR trade barbs over co-operation in Perak

Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir and his predecessor, Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin, today traded words over co-operating with each other, after the Federal Court upheld the Barisan Nasional as the lawful state government.

Zambry indicated that he would neither bend to the will of the Pakatan Rakyat nor give in to the conditions they had set in exchange for their co-operation.

“I do not think they need to set it, it is not proper. We must be sincere when we help the people," Zambry told reporters here.

“As long as the government is being run in the right way and smoothly, there is no need for this,” he added.

When asked if he would at least agree to allow PR assemblymen to become members in some of the state's special committees, Zambry said: “Let me give you an example. Today, (former senior state executive councillor Datuk) Ngeh (Koo Ham) said that I am insincere.

“Does he remember that even when I was an executive councillor (during former BN government), I used to help him? At the time, he was the opposition. He would come and see me and I would help him,” he said.

When the Federal Court ruled that Zambry was the rightful Perak Mentri Besar, Nizar and all PR assemblymen agreed to work with the BN government but laid down four conditions: that the BN administration must allows PR parties to use public premises for the purpose of hosting functions; give memberships to PR assemblymen in all special committees at district levels; provide all PR assemblymen with allocations to the tune of RM150,000 or RM200,000; and for the BN government to base its administration on the principles of honesty, integrity, transparency, justice and welfare.

Zambry, instead, said that all parties — including BN— should just focus on getting back to work.

“It is time for us to work and not to celebrate. I hope that we will set our focus on developing Perak instead of to keep fighting these political battles.

“You know me, I want to work for the people of Perak,” he said.

The Pangkor assemblyman hosted a mammoth function for the public at his official residence here tonight, in order to offer thanksgiving prayers for Tuesday's ruling.

In his speech, he thanked the thousands gathered for their prayers and promised that his victory in the courthouse would not make him big-headed.

“I will not become conceited and big-headed, no. This victory was not mine alone. It was a victory that showed that the wishes of the people of Perak who want justice, peace and prosperity were answered by Allah.

“Me and my friends in the BN would like to pledge our commitment that we will keep working. It is time to go down to the ground,” he said.

Nizar says the BN administration is shutting them out.

Meanwhile, Nizar accused the BN government of being unapproachable, saying that they had “their arms crossed”.

“We have heard them say that our co-operation should be unconditional and it is clear that they have no intention to give in.

“But to me, if they fail to fulfil these conditions, then how do we co-operate with them?” he told The Malaysian Insider.

Nizar claimed that in their one-year rule, the BN government had not allowed the PR to use public premises such as public fields and community halls to host their functions.

“We do not even have the premises to go and meet the people because we are not given space to do so.

“The only way for us is to perhaps meet the people in pasar malams (night markets) or by the road side,” he said.

Nizar added that unlike when PR was in power, BN did not open the memberships on all district level action committees to all.

“If we cannot be in these committees, this shows that they are restricting us from giving our services to the people,” he said.

Nizar also said that during the PR's rule in 2008, a total allocation of RM75,000 was channelled to all BN assemblymen through the land office.

“Meaning, in all constituencies held by the BN, we give them money to spend for their constituency.

“Today, we in the PR get nothing from the BN,” he said.


Well BN has been playing money politics for way too long. If Zambry is sincere then allocation must be given to all MP regardless of political affiliation simply because this is for the MP to serve the people. If the rakyat knows that their money were witheld because their MPs are non BN then all hell will break loose in the next GE. BN will suffer a humiliating defeat. Likewise, all public premises should be made available to all MPs. These are public properties and not BN.

Give us a break Zambry and stop acting like you are working for Perakians. If you really are, be inclusive. The opposition are not your enemy but are there to keep you from abusing your illegal power.

Anwar poses a question of penetration

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim wants the sodomy charge against him thrown out because clinical reports suggest there was no anal penetration of his accuser, but prosecutors say semen samples can still prove unnatural carnal activity.

Anwar’s lawyer Karpal Singh and Solicitor-General 2 Datuk Yusof Zainal Abiden argued before the Court of Appeal this morning over the question of penetration in the Opposition Leader’s bid to have the sodomy charges against him struck out.

The Opposition Leader is appealing against a High Court decision to proceed with his trial. His trial has already started in the High Court, but Anwar now wants the Court of Appeal to put an end to it.

Court of Appeal judges Datuk Wira Abu Samah, Datuk Sulaiman Daud and Datuk Azhar Ma’ah conceded that more time is need in order to study the submissions of both the prosecution and the defence. They said they could only deliver a decision on February 17, a day before the High Court trial is set to continue.

On Dec 1, the High Court had dismissed the opposition leader’s bid to strike out the charge against him. Judge Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah had ruled then that the court cannot use its inherent powers to strike out the sodomy charge based solely on medical reports which found no conclusive clinical evidence of anal penetration on Anwar’s accuser and former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

Anwar had tendered two medical reports from Hospital Kuala Lumpur and Hospital Pusrawi which stated those findings.

Today, the clinical reports became the focus of both teams in presenting their arguments.

Lead counsel for Anwar’s team Karpal argued that the High Court had the power to strike out the charge if it was “abusive of process, oppressive, and prejudicial.” The veteran lawyer stressed that the crux of the case hinged on the question of whether penetration had actually taken place, which according to the clinical reports suggested otherwise.

“The learned judge was misdirected by saying that the reports could not determine whether the act had occured. What does the judge rely upon?

“Was the judge right in having considered the impact? This has been a trauma for Datuk Seri Anwar and his family,” said Karpal.

The fiery lawyer cited the clinical reports by Hospital Kuala Lumpur as proof that there were “no conclusive clinical findings suggestive of penetration in the anus or rectum area.”

“Your lordship, the word conclusive means certainty, far beyond a reasonable doubt. With these findings, I don’t know how the prosecution would proceed with this trial,” said Karpal.

According to the defence lawyer, the fundamental element of the charge against Anwar stands unproven because of the reports and calling other witnesses to testify would simply be an exercise in futility, as section 377B of the Penal Code dictates that penetration is an important element of the charge.

“It is persecution, not prosecution. The court cannot sit back and let the prosecution carry on..the court cannot abdicate from its divine duty to intercede. “It does not matter that the trial has proceeded. The trial is being rushed. Whoever is doing it has a motive.

“The charge ought to be struck out now or is this the result of some black hand behind the prosecution of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim?”

Solicitor-General 2 Datuk Yusof Zainal Abiden countered Karpal’s arguments by arguing that the court must allow the evidence to be produced, stating that the clinical reports are not conclusive.

“The medical report is not substantive evidence, it only corroborates the author (doctor). What the author has to say in court needs to be taken in account,” said Yusof.

He dismissed the defense’s evidence was “affidavit evidence which is not evidence, evidence which the court permits is evidence in court.

“The absence of laceration does not excuse penetration. Proof of penetration of the anus is not needed to establish unnatural carnal activity.

“The presence of traces of lubricant may be suggestive as evidence. The finding of spermatozoa will prove the act almost beyond dispute,” stated Yusof.

Anwar is accused of sodomising his one-time aide at the Desa Damansara Condominium on June 26, 2008.

The former deputy prime minister has vehemently denied the accusations hurled by Saiful, describing it as “evil, frivolous lies by those in power” when the charge was read out to him.

He is charged under section 377B of the Penal Code and can be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years’ jail and whipping upon conviction.

The trial is taking place 18 months after Anwar was charged in court in August 2008. Anwar was charged with sodomy and corruption in 1998 after he was sacked from the Cabinet and was later convicted and jailed for both offences.

He was freed in September 2004 and later resurrected his political career by winning back his Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat in a by-election in 2008, which had been held in the interim by his wife.

He had earlier led the opposition coalition, Pakatan Rakyat, to a historic sweep of five states and 82 parliamentary seats in Election 2008.


What a twisted logic by the prosecutor. Only when there is conclusive evidence of penetration by medical/pathological examination, than there is a case. Than, the Court will trails on who is the sodomiser by probing more evidences (witnesses, chemical, physical evidences etc).

‘DNA evidence’ at the most may help to establish on ‘Who’ is related to the crime. But can’t establish on ‘How’ the cells or tissue than content the DNA when into contact with the accuser. DNA can goes into the accuser’s anus in so many ways. By contamination, by taking the tissue sample from the suspect and plant it into the anus via a ‘joystick’ with some lubricant… any many more.

So, how that the prosecutor can said that the ‘DNA evidence’ can establish that the ‘penetration’ did occur?

If a man does not have any wounds on his body, but just have someone blood stains on his body. Can there be a case be established that the man has been injured by someone else???

Totally stupid case!!!

If the judges do not that the accounts of doctor (specialist dealing with health problem and body check), then why they still want to proceed with the DNA stuffs? No penetration means nothing happens.

Can we said that the DNA sample was falsified since the court reject to provide the information and sample to the defendant?

Now all Australians MPs have voiced out to end this silly no proof prosecution, why still keep it going? Sodomy part 1 was poorly staged and the world has learned about this and yet they continued with the second one. The best thing that they could do it is just put Anwar directly into the jail if they want it, don't waste tax payers money on nonsense trial. At least we could accept that since we all know that Anwar was framed for the second time.

Our country image has been tarnished and yet nothing is being done about it.

Judge Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah had ruled then that the court cannot use its inherent powers to strike out the sodomy charge based solely on medical reports which found no conclusive clinical evidence of anal penetration on Anwar’s accuser and former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan

...The fiery lawyer cited the clinical reports by Hospital Kuala Lumpur as proof that there were “no conclusive clinical findings suggestive of penetration in the anus or rectum area.”
" ...the word conclusive means certainty, far beyond a reasonable doubt. "

I'm afraid the learned judge may have confused "no conclusive...." with "inconclusive.....". The latter meaning without clear result or decision. In this aspect, the learned judge misinterpreted the statement.
Thus, since the prosecution proved that there were semen samples but clinical findings suggestive of penetration in the anus or rectum area were inconclusive, the trial judge allowed the trial to proceed. So for the moment it is inconclusive BUT they will provide the conclusive evidence during the trial.

This is as oppose to Anwar's defence, that confirmed that since there was "no conclusive clinical findings of penetration ...", the trial should not proceed. Now you decide !

Let me give you an analogy. The my neighbour found my screw-driver and hammer outside the back-door of his house. He claimed that I had broken into his house. The police conducted an investigation and base on the police report, there was "no conclusive physical evidence of a break-in and entering of the premises."
However my accuser, said he found my tools outside the back-door of his house. Since it was there, it proved a unnatural activity had taken place.
The learned judge confused by the terms "no conclusive" and "inconclusive" decided to allow the trial to proceed. The prosecution hoped to prove their case with circumstantial evidence since the police investigation was "inconclusive."

Malaysia Boleh !!

UMNO is sick. This whole is nothing but a circus and the judges are clowns doing the ring master's bidding! Demand better accountability from this government by sacking it when the GE comes round. Sack it unequivocally, categorically, surely, and with finality.

Zahrain quits PKR and remains independent

Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim, the PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) MP of Bayan Baru announced that he is quitting PKR and that he will remain as an independent MP. This would be the first Pakatan Rakyat MP to take the ‘independent’ route. Zahrain has been in the controversy fire for the past weeks after he called Lim Guan Eng, the Chief Minister of Penang a communist-minded, chauvinistic and dictator leader.

Others like Tan Tee Beng of Nibong Tebal has since joined the fray. Zahrain said “When I was invited by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to join Parti Keadilan Rakyat, I place my confidence and trust to the struggle for reform. However my confidence and trust have begun to erode. And my doubts have overtaken my confidence to the objectives and the struggle of PKR especially, and Pakatan Rakyat. In the name of God, I would like to announce my resignation from PKR,” said Zahrain adding that he will remain as an independent in Parliament. All my objections and criticisms were brushed aside. I do not want history to punish me for not taking action. I will be independent. I have not spoken to anyone from BN or Umno,”





This is the kind of person with low moral, if he want to quit he can always quit why did he spread the news and accused LGE of sacking him.

This is the kind of person with low moral, if he want to quit he can always quit but why do he had to shit all over PKR, DAP & PAS before he quit, yet with his farking thick skin froggie face .... only a couple of days ago, he told the press " i won't quit PKR ".

Anyway, God bless Pakatan Rakyat .... one load of rubbish had just flown out of Pakatan right into the mouth of Umno

RPK’s son hospitalized after swallowing razor blade

The son of Raja Petra Kamaruddin, Raja Azman has been rushed to the hospital after it was reported that he swallowed a razor blade. The 34 year old is believed to have slashed his wrist in his prison cell in Sungai Buloh. According to Gombak OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Rahim Abdullah, one of the prison officers spotted Raja Azman lying motionless on the floor of his cell. Raja Petra, or RPK, the editor of Malaysia Today is believed to be currently in London and he wrote in his blog that his son had to resort to suicide as he can no longer take the torture he is facing in the prison. ACP Rahim declined to comment on the claims and said “We are investigating the case thoroughly. Give us some time as it is still in the early stages,”












Guan Eng slams Zahrain over contract tender

Lim Guan Eng hit back today at his chief critic by releasing details of how his administration over-ruled Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohd Hashim’s recommendation for the state-owned Bukit Jambul Country Club’s (BJCC) operations contract to be awarded to a RM2 company.

The Penang chief minister said the state government decided instead to have an open tender for the contract, which was subsequently awarded to another, more experienced company.

Lim’s statement comes amid increasing dissent against his administration, sparked of by former PKR state chief Zahrain, who described the chief minister as a “dictator, a chauvinist and communist-minded”.

The Penang CM disclosed today that BJCC was currently operated by Island Golf Properties Bhd (IGP), a Penang Development Corporation (PDC) subsidiary. Zahrain is IGP Chairman, and has held the post since July 9, 2008.

On Tuesday, the PDC board decided to award, via an open tender, the operations contract to a company which Lim said was worth more than RM40 million.

Yesterday, the PDC board, rejected Zahrain’s recommendation that it should have been awarded to the RM2 company he had recommended.

Lim said the full details of the tender award would be published after the Chinese New Year holidays.

“Certain actions and claims by Zahrain on the IGP has compelled PDC to monitor IGP closely to ensure that IGP is run in the public interest,” said Lim, who is also DAP secretary-general.

According to the statement, Lim had based his recommendations for a fresh open tender to the management of BJCC for two reasons:

“To allow a RM2 private company to win the tender for running BJCC, that involves [the] expenditure of tens of millions of ringgit, would make a mockery of the meaning of [an] open tender system.

“The RM2 company had no track record of running a golf club and was established on 29 Sept, 2008. The RM2 company was established a mere two months before the tender, clearly with the sole intended purpose of bidding for the tender in December 2008.”

Lim said that his refusal to agree to the requests made by Zahrain to select the RM2 company was based on the fact that an open tender must be fully transparent.

“The fresh open tender exercise was carried out last year with seven interested applicants. The PDC Board decided in its Fe 9, 2010 meeting to select a company that offered a combined value of more than RM40 million to BJCC over 10 years.

“The company selected has a track record, and most importantly, its paid up capital is not RM2.”

The DAP leader also asserted that open tenders and government contracts needed to be looked at objectively, based solely on “performance and public interest”.

Lim’s statement comes as his DAP-led state government in Penang continues to attract criticisms from his PKR allies.

Besides Zahrain, another Penang PKR leader, Tan Tee Beng, also lashed out at Lim by stating that he was “a leader without class who practised vengeful politics”.

Both Zahrain and Tan have been referred to PKR’s disciplinary board.


Zahrain, still with his Umno mentality, should just follow Ezam Nor, Ruslan Kassim, Lokman Nor Adam to rejoin Umno. Hope PKR next time when fielding candidates for election, pls do not select those former Umno members.. Give those loyal PKR members a chance..

Zambry not thinking about revenge

Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir, the Mentri Besar of Perak said that he is currently deciding if the opposition state representatives would be included to sit in the action committees in the state administration because when the Pakatan Rakyat was in power, the Barisan Nasional representatives were not included. Yet, this is not about revenge, Zambry claims. He said “We will look into the possibility of including them (in action committees).

They did not include us when they were in power but we are not thinking about taking revenge. Allocations for every state constituency would be channelled directly through the development of infrastructures. This has been the practice. We extend assistance in various forms to everyone in Perak without asking their backgrounds. To us, whatever we want to spend on the people must go directly to them,”



Umno not using government agencies to fund ‘Juara Rakyat’ programme

Datuk Ahmad Maslan, the Information Chief of Umno has quashed claims that the party is misusing government agencies to fund a ‘Juara Rakyat’ programme. The claims were made by the opposition party and Ahmad said that there is no such instance and they would just ‘turn a deaf ear’ to the allegations. The ‘Juara Rakyat’ programme essentially is meant for all the government agencies to implement their responsibilities to foster ties with the people. He said "In this programme, Umno acts as the facilitator by inviting the various government agencies to provide counter services to handle the people's complaints and problems. We also invite all levels of society regardless of political ideology, background or race. As such, the question of misuse does not arise. The next general election is due only in two or three years from now while the Juara Rakyat programme will only run this year. It has nothing to do with any attempt to garner votes,"

He added that “The programme, which carried a different theme each month, would also involve Umno Youth, Wanita Umno and Puteri Umno. This means that each (party) division will have four "foster families", made up of Umno, Wanita Umno, Umno Youth and Puteri Umno. This is a new element which we have incorporated to make the programme more effective. These ‘foster families’ would be the link between the people and the party leadership, and would convey all the people's problems.”






The courts award Perak to UMNO

In the meantime, his party is beset by infighting in several state assemblies, particularly Penang and Selangor, with a growing number of restive lawmakers threatening to leave the opposition coalition and return to the Barisan. Three have been brought before a disciplinary committee of the opposition coalition seeking answers to questions over their use of personal expense accounts.

Any indication that Malaysia's courts were becoming independent of the government disappeared from view again Tuesday when the five-member Federal Court ruled that United Malays National Organization stalwart Zambry Abdul Kadir is the rightful chief minister of the state of Perak, the country's second biggest and one of its richest.

The state has been caught a constitutional crisis since May of 2009, with the government paralyzed by the controversy over who was actually in charge. Perak had been controlled by the national opposition coalition Pakatan Rakyat as a result of the March 2008 national election, with Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin as chief minister. However, then-Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak engineered the defection of three lawmakers, bringing the government to a halt in a 28-28 tie. Upon their defection, Sultan Raja Azlan Shah immediately ordered Nizar to vacate his position and installed Zambry in his place.

That kicked off a melee in which 65 people were arrested. Ahead of Tuesday's decision, Rais yatim, the the Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim, was quoted by the state-owned national wire service Bernama as calling on the people to be calm.

"We should respect the decision irrespective of whether it favors A or B. We are confident in our judicial system and in the way the law is administered," Bernama quoted him as saying.

Kuala Lumpur High Court Judge Abdul Aziz Rahim ruled on May 11 that the sultan lacked the authority to remove Nizar without a vote of confidence in the statehouse, only to have the appellate court put his decision in abeyance a few hours later. The case – and the Perak state government – have been stalled as the Federal Court, the country's highest, took up the decision in November and has chewed on it ever since.

The ruling, led by Court of Appeal president Alauddin Mohd Sheriff, was built on the premise that the Barisan Nasional, or ruling national coalition, controls 31 votes in the Perak statehouse although no vote has ever been taken, and while the three defectors are said to be leaning towards the Barisan, they have given no official indication that they would cross the aisle. The Election Commission refused a letter proclaiming the realignment of their loyalty, setting the stage for the constitutional crisis.

When Nizar refused to go, instead of waiting for Judge Abdul Aziz's original ruling, elite federal Field Reserve Unit police invaded the Ipoh statehouse on May 7 to drag opposition Speaker V. Sivakumar out of the chambers amid flying furniture and protests that resulted in the arrest of 65 people. As far as can be determined, it is the first time in Malaysian history that federal police had ever entered a legislature.

The ruling appears unlikely to end the continuing political uncertainty in either Perak or the government. Political analysts in Kuala Lumpur say the logical solution to the stalemate – a state popular by-election to determine the makeup of the statehouse – is unlikely because Najib and the Barisan do not believe they could win it.

The state, long a tin mining center, has an extremely large Chinese and Indian population and the Chinese have largely abandoned the Barisan because of the collapse into scandal of the Malaysian Chinese Association, which is embroiled in infighting over the disappearance of billions of dollars in the attempt to turn Port Klang, 60 km. west of Kuala Lumpur, into a multimodal port.

The Barisan instead appears to be counting on time to bring the voters, particularly disaffected ethnic Malays who have abandoned UMNO for the fundamentalist Parti Islam se-Malaysia and Anwar Ibrahim's Parti Keadilan Rakyat, or People's Justice Party, because of a long series of scandals and outright crimes.

However, Anwar is on trial in Kuala Lumpur in what has been widely billed as Sodomy 2, on charges of sodomizing a former aide in a trial that to everybody but the government itself appears to be built on dubious allegations that were laid to derail the first realistic challenge to the ruling national coalition since the country was formed.

In the meantime, his party is beset by infighting in several state assemblies, particularly Penang and Selangor, with a growing number of restive lawmakers threatening to leave the opposition coalition and return to the Barisan. Three have been brought before a disciplinary committee of the opposition coalition seeking answers to questions over their use of personal expense accounts.

The coalition that Anwar cobbled together has been an unlikely one from the start, with the Islamic, largely rural and fundamentalist PAS on one side and the ethnic Chinese Democratic Action Party on the other, with Anwar's moderate, urban Malays in the middle. Zulkifli Nordin, a member of Anwar's Parti Keadilan Rakyat, was quoted publicly earlier this week as predicting mass resignations over the next two to three weeks over tensions with the DAP and PKR's difficulty in dealing with them.

"The problem was that Anwar rounded up a bunch of incompetents to run in 2008, and disillusionment was so great with UMNO that a lot of people got voted into office who should never have been voted into office," said a businessman in Kuala Lumpur. The opposition coalition, he said, has thus never been able to capitalize on its gains by actually paying attention to governing. At the same time, the opposition has been harried by Najib's use of law enforcement powers including the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and others to bring opposition lawmakers in on charges that many observers believe are superfluous.

Nonetheless, the court's decision appears certain to reinforce popular opinion that Malaysia's judiciary is thoroughly in the pockets of UMNO. That isn't helped by the case against Anwar, who is charged with having consensual sex with the former aide, a charge that is extremely rare in Malaysia and especially Kuala Lumpur, where gay bars abound and homosexuality isn't particularly condemned despite the fact that it is nominally against the law. An examination of the evidence against him in similar charges in 1998 leads to the overwhelming conclusion that it was concocted to derail his political career.

The case has been put on temporary hold as Anwar's lead counsel, Karpal Singh, seeks to disqualify the presiding judge, Mohd Zabidin Mohd Diah.

At least 100% more stalls were demolished during to BN’s term as compared to Pakatan - Lim

Lim Guan Eng, the Chief Minister of Penang has come under fire after the recent demolition of stalls belonging to Malays in the state. This has caused more criticism which have been hurled at him of late, particularly from those within the Pakatan Rakyat. Defending on this issue, he said that there has been more Malay stalls being demolished during the BN (Barisan Nasional) administration.

In fact, during the BN’s government, there were at least 100 per cent more demolition cases (2006-2007)than there has been from 2008 to 2010. He said "I wish to clarify that the number of Malay stalls demolished under the BN administration from 2006 to 2007 was 100 per cent more compared to the number demolished by the opposition coalition from 2008 to 2010. What was being done to the government under his leadership now was the result of slanders being spread by the state Umno. The state government is now making efforts to convey correct information to the people in the state so that they were not deceived by the wrong information that was being spread.”


dont been fool by those UMNO hired monkeys, they are all been paid to make show for Umno..

Nothing further on Umno-PAS talks

Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamad, the chairman of the Kelantan Umno Liaison Committee said that there will be no more further discussion about the so-called proposed unity talks by PAS with Umno because of PAS’ insincerity and that the Umno leaders are fed up with Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat’s inconsistency. He said “He would extend his gesture one moment, but the next, he would set impossible conditions. I think PAS is trying to make a fool of Umno,” Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, the president of PAS has refuted the claims saying that they have not been inconsistent but “PAS was just being practical. If we see that things are being done properly for the good of the nation, we will lend our support but if we do not see eye to eye on certain matters, we will give advice,”


UMNO BN does not need PAS to make a fooled out of UMNO BN - they can do it all by them selfs!

No PAS cannot make a fool of umno because umno already is a bladdy fool

I am not quitting and won’t abandon Anwar at time of need – Kelana Jaya PKR MP

Loh Gwo Burne, the PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) MP of Kelana Jaya has denied rumours that he is going to quit the party and jump-ship over to a component party in the BN (Barisan Nasional). He also quashed the claims that the few other lawmakers in the PKR like Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim of Kulim-Bandar Baharu, Tan Tee Beng fo Nibong Tebal and Wee Choo Keong of Wangsa Maju too would follow suit. He added that it was Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, the de factor leader of PKR who requested for him to join the party and he would not abandon him at the hour of need where Anwar is currently on trial for alleged sodomy. He said “Over the past week, there has been talk about PKR lawmakers leaving to join Barisan. There’s no truth in this. I am not going to leave Pakatan Rakyat or PKR. In his (Anwar) time of need, there’s no way I will abandon him,”

R Sivarasa, the vice-president of the PKR said “Party-hopping was all right if done for the right reasons. If they hop for the wrong reasons, then it is wrong. The defection of elected representatives had occurred in many countries. However, in Malaysia, it is seen as dubious or unethical because in most cases, politicians hop to another party to gain either positions or monetary benefits,”


JUMP SHIP IF YOU WANT THE RAKYAT TO PUNISH YOU. Have a good discipline if you want to be a good politician. Who want trust Ibrahim Ali again, and the 3 perak PR ADUN.


Action might be taken against Wee for outburst on Guan Eng

Wee Choo Keong, the PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) MP of Wangsa Maju might be landing in hot soup for his outburst on Lim Guan Eng, the Chief Minister of Penang. According to Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, the secretary-general of PKR, Wee might be referred to the disciplinary committee for his public criticism on Guan Eng. Those who are currently in the same situation include Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohd Hashim and Tan Tee Beng of Nibong Tebal and Kulim-Bandar Baharu respectively. Saifuddin said “Wee would likely join other PKR leaders who had been referred to the disciplinary committee for going on the offensive against the DAP secretary-general. We will discuss Wee’s recent outburst at the next PKR political bureau meeting,”


This KATAK are preparing to lompat, they purposley creating some shit to make them lompat more nicely

Three days before Tan Tee Beng hit out at LGE, Raja Petra already hinted that 2 chinese from PKR will join the fray ( joining Zahrain & Zulkifli ).

According to Raja Petra, one PKR chinese from Penang .... this guy is owning AhLong ( that why he is so frustrated, when LGE won't allow him to get the same allocated funds as Selangor's assemblyman).

Another one, a PKR chinese too from Selangor .... this guy's mistress just give birth to son. According to RPK, this sucker's secret was being hold as ransom by the BN. ( This situation was almost the same as the two Malay frogs from Perak ... being held ransom on corruption charges and womanising charges ).

Anwar applies for disqualification of trial judge, hearing set for tomorrow

The Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim sodomy trial resumes this morning at 10.00am. It was reported earlier that the alleged sodomy victim Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan had claimed that he had not passed motion for 2 days following the alleged act and that when he told Anwar that he wanted to quit his job, Anwar emailed him and then called him and scolded him. He said “After a few hours, Anwar called and scolded me. He asked me to meet him at his office in Section 16. I was scared but I went to see him as asked,” and that he actually wanted to resign because “I was not willing to be treated in such a manner any more. He asked me to be more disciplined and made a counter-offer that he wished to sponsor my studies and that I could still enjoy my full salary and allowances,” He then accepted the offer where Anwar then emailed him with the words “Thank you for being willing to continue your service.” In Monday’s proceedings, Anwar has applied to recuse the judge, Justice Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah on the trial. This is on the grounds that he made 2 rulings to the media coverage issue which brought “to surface an element of a real danger of bias.” His lead counsel Karpal Singh filed the application on the judge and that the trial should not continue until the judge is recused. Karpal said “This is a serious matter. We will be here tommorrow (Tuesday) for the hearing of the application for the judge to recuse himself,”

Justice Mohamad Zabidin then set Tuesday at 9.30am to hear the application so that the lead prosecutor Solicitor-General II Datuk Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden could have time to prepare and file an affidavit-in-reply on the application for disqualification.

Karpal, who spoke to reporters after the ruling said “Anwar was worried that he would not get a fair trial due to previous rulings of the trial judge. If the trial judge has cautioned the newspaper, at least it will different. He should have sent a signal that he will not tolerate any interference by the media. His decisions cannot be supported. It is not a delaying tactic. We want to proceed with the sodomy trial. We (just) want this (matter) to be clear. It is not a final order as it does not finally dispose the rights of the (concerned) party (Anwar). It is not a conviction or an acquittal order (meted out by the High Court),”

According to the application, the 2 headlines published in the Utusan Malaysia entitled “TAK RELA DILIWAT LAGI” (Not willing to be sodomised again) and “BERHENTI KERANA TIDAK MAHU DILIWAT LAGI” (Resigned because did not want to be sodomised again) was published on the front and third page of the newspaper respectively. Anwar said “The trial judge had declined to caution Utusan and that to his disbelief had ruled that the publication of the picture as evidence regarding the bed had been given in open court the previous day. This pronouncement by the learned judge is not borne out by what actually transpired in open court, not in the notes of proceedings, both written and audio. I respectfully state as a result of the rulings made by the trial judge, there has been a departure from the standard of even-handed justice which the law requires. With respect, the learned trial judge has not adjudicated upon the applications made by my counsel with an independent mind,”


Now our Kangaroo courts are stuffed with "Monkey judges" should anyone be surprised to witness all the funny business going on...demonstrating their talents and great ability to lick Najis's balls...without any coaxing!!!...obedient ass-holes? or, are they afraid to be C4-ed?!!

These so called UMNO KETUANAN MELAU Mongrels... simply have no shame...a disgraceful inferior speimens!

Who could blame Anwar for seeking the disqualification of this biased judge??

Normally a simple rape or a sodomy case would be heard in a Sessions Court. This case too was to be heard under Judge Komathy Suppiah. But these UMNO pricks hijacked the whole judiciary system and moved it to the High Court where their tainted moles are all well spread under the wings of ex Umno man Zaki.

Now what is so special about Saifool's arse that needs to be heard in the High Court?? Well your guess is as good as mine....his autographed arse has the blesiiings of top UMNO clowns.

Will Altantuya help Nasir to wriggle out from racism charge

Civil society groups and political leaders have urged Prime Minister Najib Razak not to let his special officer Nasir Safar off with just a resignation and a police probe that leads nowhere, as that would be “adding salt to the wound” of the Chinese and Indian communities that Nasir insulted earlier this week.

“We have seen too many times the police publicly announcing their investigations and then passing the file to the Attorney-General,” N Gobalakrishnan, PKR supreme council member, told Harakahdaily.

“But it always seems to stop there. Mysteriously the file will stay there until almost everyone forgets about it, like the Lingam tape. And then they will say not enough evidence!”

The Altantuya link

Indeed, speculation is rife that the PM will not dare to charge Nasir under the Sedition Act even if there was a waterproof case because of their alleged links in the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder case.

The buzz in cyberspace and the electronic media is that Nasir had helped Najib to check up on Altantuya the night she went missing. The 28-year old Mongolian translator was murdered in Malaysia in 2006 by two former bodyguards of Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor. Both Najib and Rosmah have denied they ever knew Altantuya.

“This is a test case for Najib. He has to show his resolve and that he is ready to protect the rights of all racial groups in the country and not just the Malays,” Dr Syed Azman, head of PAS’s international bureau, told Harakahdaily.

“At the micro level, this really shows up the PM in a very negative light. After all, if his special aide thinks and talks this way, the citizenry will be right in doubting the sincerity of his 1Malaysia unity efforts. They will think this is also the way Najib thinks and talks in private!”

Police probe

Nasir incurred infamy at an official 1Malaysia forum held in Malacca earlier this week when he allegedly said that “Indians came to Malaysia as beggars and Chinese especially the women came to sell their bodies”. He also threatened to revoke their citizenship if they caused trouble.

Since then he has made a public apology and resigned from his long-held job. Meanwhile, Malacca police chief Mohd Rodwan Mohd Yusof said police would call Nasir to lodge his statement soon, probably next Monday or Tuesday.

"So far, the investigation is 85 per cent completed and only waiting for his statement to fully complete the probe," Rodwan told reporters.

However, Rodwan’s own credibility is also in doubt.

Corruption and conspiracy

The police chief, who was formerly based in Bukit Aman, has been accused of helping former premier Mahathir Mohamad fabricate evidence against Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim during the latter's sodomy trial in 1998.

According to a popular news portal, Rodwan was also the police officer that Saiful Bukhari Azlan went to meet in 2008, two days before lodging a complaint against Anwar for the latest round of sodomy charges.

Indeed, so disenchanted by the web of conspiracy and rampant corruption in the country, a group of Indian NGOs led by Hindu Sangam Malaysia has announced plans to initiate legal action against Nasir.

They are demanding that his citizenship be revoked and are also seeking RM100 million as compensation for his recent inflammatory remarks.

"If the government fails to act, we will call on all parliamentarians and state assemblypersons representing the Indian community to leave all assembly sittings and if there is still inaction, then they should proceed to resign

Najib calls on Muslims to take the middle path

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak called on the Muslim community to be moderate in their religious practices and to be wary of those who want to stir religious tensions by manipulating the "Allah" row.

Quoting the Quran, Najib said Muslims are referred to in the holy book as a moderate community.

"Therefore the concept of moderation, or the middle path, must be encouraged in Islam as any deed which is done more than necessary is considered extreme, but if it is less than necessary it is considered negligence," said Najib.

"Therefore the Muslim community cannot be rigid and extreme and also should not be too free, without limits," he added.

Najib was speaking at meeting with Islamic leaders and scholars here.

He also urged those present to handle the "Allah" dispute wisely, but did not elaborate on the sensitive issue.

"We must not take lightly controversial religious issues. On the issue of the word 'Allah', it has really tested our wisdom in handling it," said Najib, describing the series of attacks against places of worship as an attempt to destabilise the country.

"Please remember, 40 years after the racial riot of May 13, 1969, the Malaysian community has not given up on building a 1 Malaysian race," said Najib.

He also stressed the importance of dialogue in handling differences of opinion.

"Learn from history and remember that major wars started from small conflicts," said Najib.

After the opening speech Najib then proceeded to have a 20 minute, closed-door dialogue with the 600 Islamic leaders who were present.


When he first and foremost calls for 'Malaysians' to follow the middle path... there may be something here... till then it is just the same old story with a new teller and a bad smell...

Hahaha from the looks Nasir Safar incident, the Boss talked in froked tongues. UMNO has always being famous of saying one thing to a group of people and a conflicting ones to another.

n clearer terms, Najib is telling the Malays to be wary of Najib and UMNO Baru.

It was Najib and his ministers who declared he was powerless and not able to stop protests by the A- issue protesters.

It was Najib and his ministers who opined that the protesters have a right to voice their opinions in public.

It was his UMNO/BN government that appealed against a High Court ruling on the issue.

It is Najib who is ineffective and cannot run the country properly!

The ideal of a united Malaysia is under strain

What’s’ happening with Malaysia? The country has long been viewed in Australia as not only an especially friendly Southeast Asian neighbour — the “recalcitrant” Mahathir Mohammad excepted, though he’s been retired six years — but also a model of middle-class success and tolerance in that region.

Today, however, the country is having a hard time holding things together, in the face of religious and ethnic divides, political battles, and economic challenges.

Michael Danby, who chairs Australia’s foreign affairs subcommittee, told parliament last Tuesday night that “fellow democrats around Asia are flabbergasted at events unfolding in Kuala Lumpur.”

He was referring to the second trial of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim for sodomy.

“For the second time,” Danby said, “the Malaysian legal system is being manipulated by supporters of the incumbent government to drive Malaysia’s best-known leader, Anwar Ibrahim, out of national politics.

“For the second time, documents are being forged, witnesses are being coerced, and evidence is being fabricated. This trial, like the first trial, is a disgrace to Malaysia, a country that aspires to democratic norms.”

Danby said it was long past time that Malaysia repealed these British colonial laws, which could not then be used for such political purposes.

“In the second place, everyone in Malaysia, and everyone in the international legal community, knows that Anwar is innocent of these charges.”

The underlying problem is that Anwar, leader of the People’s Justice Party, is the first charismatic Malay opposition politician with sufficient appeal for Malay voters to pose a real threat to UMNO’s 52-year hold on power.

This episode indicates that it’s also long past time UMNO took a spell in opposition, as Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party is doing.

Declared a middle-income country by the World Bank several years ago, Malaysia has grown accustomed to patronising its giant neighbour Indonesia — even though it still rankles that Malaysia itself continues to be patronised by its tiny neighbour Singapore.

Now, though, it is Indonesia — the raucous democracy with a rapidly acquired capacity to change leaders and governments peaceably, the world’s largest Muslim country renowned for its moderation and pluralism — that is receiving international praise, with US President Barack Obama flying across the world to visit (with a side-trip to Australia).

In 2008, last year and — as estimated by IMA Asia — this year, Malaysia’s economic growth figures are 4.6 per cent, -2.8 per cent, and 4 per cent. Indonesia’s are 6.1 per cent, 4.5 per cent and 5.6 per cent.

Since taking office last April, Prime Minister Najib Razak has started to dismantle the 40-year-old New Economic Policy, Sydney-based business consulting firm IMA notes.

It says: “While the NEP did little for ordinary Malays, its supposed beneficiaries, it enriched a handful of businessmen and contributed to corruption in UMNO.”

Najib also has to tackle the over-reliance on oil money — for more than 40 per cent of government revenues — while just 2.3 million of the 28 million population pay income tax. And he needs to open more sectors of the economy to foreign investors.

That’s hard to do, while at the same time grappling with the plethora of problems resulting from Malaysia’s restrictive religious laws, reflecting Islam’s role as the state religion.

Queensland University political scientist David Martin Jones, currently working in Malaysia, says: “There is now an interesting collection of scandals dating from the first Anwar case in 1998 that coincides with the fragmentation of UMNO-controlled politics.”

One such scandal comprised the tragic case of Lina Joy, aged 45, who was born into a Muslim family but began attending a church in 1990 and was baptised in 1998, and naturally wished to marry her Christian fiance. But marriage between Muslim women and non-Muslim men is forbidden under Malaysian law, and after years of battling the authorities in the courts, in 2007 she was refused permission to convert formally.

This year, Malaysia has seen its simmering religious and racial conflicts boil over after a ruling of the High Court that the Malay language pages of the Catholic Church’s weekly newspaper, the Herald, could use the term “Allah” as a translation for “God”.

Malaysian Christians say they have used “Allah” for God for centuries.

The government is appealing the decision. But in the meantime, it has triggered violent protests from Muslim Malays who comprise 60 per cent of the population, and who claim exclusive rights over the Arabic word “Allah”. Christians comprise just 9 per cent of Malaysians.

Eleven churches, a Sikh temple and two Muslim prayer rooms have been attacked so far, as a result of the row, and the severed heads of three wild boars — considered unclean by Muslims — with their mouths stuffed with bank notes, in plastic bags, were found outside two mosques.

The High Court last April sentenced to death two policemen who were assigned to the office of Najib Razak, the then deputy prime minister and defence minister. They were found guilty of murdering a Mongolian woman who had had a relationship with Abdul Razak Baginda, a defence analyst for a think tank, and had translated for him on a deal to buy submarines from France.

Abdul Razak, arrested for abetting the murder, was acquitted. But the motives for the policemen to have killed Atlantuyaa — by explosives — remain murky.

Martin Jones says: “Malay political scandals and the cynicism they engender, together with the bitter debate over the ‘Allah affair’, are seriously fragmenting the Malay community, whilst minority communities are increasingly rejecting the UMNO model of Satu Malaysia (1 Malaysia). I suspect this portends some trouble ahead for the Malay political process.”

Razak has launched a multimedia 1 Malaysia campaign to promote the virtues of “perseverance, a culture of excellence, acceptance, loyalty, education, humility, integrity, and meritocracy.”

This looks to be a hurdle too high for a political establishment whose credibility is too low, for an economy that for two years has suffered net outflows of foreign investment, and for a culture suffering some confusion.

Jones points out: “It’s somewhat ironic that an ostensibly puritanical political culture that won’t contemplate a Beyonce concert seems to lap up details of Anwar’s alleged penetration of his aide.”

The singer Beyonce last October cancelled a second planned concert in Malaysia after accusations by Islamic conservatives that her show was immoral. She scored a huge hit when she flew instead to a Muslim neighbour with less stringent rules on dress or behaviour: Indonesia.

Not as though they are F-18 engines?

“They are very old engines... they are not state-of-the-art. So, it is not of strategic asset to the nation. It is not as though they are Sukhoi or F-18 engines.”

Ladies and gentlemen, that’s your prime minister (and defence minister when these “non-strategic” engines were stolen) talking.

The callousness of the statement simply beggars belief. It’s like saying that old fighter jet engines going walkabout from under the RMAF’s noses is about as serious as someone making off with a box of pencils from the Sungai Besi Air Force base.

In that vein, you could also say that the Port Klang Free Zone scandal isn’t really that big a deal. It’s not like the country can’t afford to flush RM12 billion down the drain. We can always shake Petronas down for more loose change.

Or that Teoh Beng Hock’s mysterious death while being interrogated by the MACC isn’t really a vital issue. After all, it’s just one guy; it’s not as if tens or hundreds of people are dying at Plaza Masalam.

And you know what? Teoh wasn’t even anyone important. An aide to a state assemblyman? Please. Wake me up when somebody of note kicks the bucket.

So far, it looks as though the entire debacle is done and dusted. Stolen engines found? Check. The two guys who nicked the engines? Check.

The investigation as to how and why a security breach of this magnitude was allowed to happen? Say what?

Little wonder then that Datuk Zahid Hamidi has now said that the case involving army personnel leaking the country’s secrets to foreign embassies has been closed on orders from the Prime Minister’s Office.

After all, it’s not as though national secrets are anything more than squiggly lines printed on pieces of paper.


Please-lah, what information do can they get from armed force?

Maybe they want to know how the engines get stolen easily by so called "low rank" soldiers.
After all, malaysian army strength is still being in low rank and enough to catch people demontrate only......WAR,,,don't kidding, they die fast.

Welcome to malaysia. Everything is a small problem, military security, financial integrit, all kacang, yunless it touches on Ketuanan Melayu. Then that is a big problem.

Somebody robbed the TUDM. If they can get away with engines of a F15, they can get away with the engines of the MIG27. This is a security issue.

I think the statement made by the one PM .. only for Tanjung Rambutan Hospital occupants.. He does not deserve a respect from non-mentally ill citivens.


1. Jet engine missing, you call it "not...strategic asset".
2. Bala re-appear, you deem it "frivolous"
3. Extremist gather cos of Allah issue, you stay you can't stop them
4. Perak people want elections, you ignore
5. PKFZ dragging, you form another "task force"
6. Utusan is filled with racist from head to toe, you praise them.
7. Hassan Merican does a fantastic job, you don't renew his contract.
8. Musa Hassan under-performs, you extend his employment.
9. VK Lingam guilty as hell, you kasi tutup file.
10. MCA/MIC/UMNO still have internal problems, you say their problems on the wane.

Errr, are you really managing this country?

In Japan, the Defense Minister already commit Hara Kiri for bringing shame their country for losing their jet engines.

In China, these traitors are taken to be shot at the back of their head by the Communist Party.

In US, they would be thrown in Guantanamo Bay and water boarded.

Only in Malaysia, you have these portray as trivial, loose change closed and a direct letter from the PM to all the mainstream media editor not ever to be mention the issue again. Malaysia BOLEH!!!

Report against Penang Malay Chamber of Commerce

A police report has been made against the Penang Malay Chamber of Commerce (DPMMPP) for allegedly making a false statement against the Penang state government.

Datuk Keramat State Asemblyman Jagdeep Singh Deo for the Penang government said DPMMPP claimed that the state government had discriminated against Malay traders.

“The statement by DPMMPP is a lie aimed at fanning racial sentiments. Local Government and Traffic Management Committee Chairman Chow Kon Yeow had explained that it was based on statistics from local authorities,” he said here today.

He asked police to investigate the statement by DPMMPP to ascertain whether it was slanderous towards the Penang government and Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Yesterday, 30 Malay non-governmental organisations (NGO) called Gabungan Sedaq held a rally to send a memorandum to Lim to register dissatisfaction for his treatment of Malay traders.

The rally of 3,000 people led by Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali failed to deliver the memorandum personally when Lim refused to meet them


An amno outfit can do anything and they are above the law. Now they're hungry because the cow they used to milk is in good hands.

The rally of 3000 people?? Come on... there were less than 200 of them. And many of them are not even locals!

Dpmmpp used to be the godfather of many small traders and bumi contractors and a center to share apples and goodies, in particular, the small and medium projects monopolized and allocated amongst the class F contractors! Since 308, and it's a political plot that most of the small projects allocations from the federal government had been siphoned to the Northern BN control state, Perlis, just to name one, the goons here in Penang had suffered few or zero project and are left to starve!

With due instigation, they are now turning their fury on the PR government which has no say over the federal allocations. Hence all the pot shots!

They should instead blame their Minister of letting them to rot, and torched their effigies...stupid!!!!

Minister wants royal commission to study Penang government

Penang Umno today suggested the setting up of a royal commission to study the feasibility of a Penang state Pakatan Rakyat (PR) government helmed by the DAP.

Its chairman, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, said the commission was suitable as the opposition coalition was always calling for a commission to investigate the Barisan Nasional (BN) government’s weaknesses.

“The opposition DAP very easily hurls accusations on the (federal) government, calling for a commission, and to produce a white paper.

“Now we call for a white paper or a royal commission to study their weaknesses,” he told reporters after being asked to comment on the crisis between DAP and the Penang Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) now.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also Umno vice-president, was met after a working visit to the Rimba Taqwa Camp of the National Service Training Centre here today.

He said when PKR revealed the attitude of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, it clearly showed the problems within the opposition coalition but Lim refused to admit to it.

“BN will not interfere but leave it to the people to make a change. For two years of DAP rule, there has been no progress, no new investment, rather the rights of one race are sidelined although not in the name of race but their action shows the DAP’s prejudice.

“While championing a Malaysian Malaysia the DAP does not practice their slogan. The actions of demolishing stalls of traders who are not their supporters is the real attitiude of the dictatorial DAP,” said Ahmad Zahid.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also Defence Minister, said the people of Penang should review their stand from now of whether to support the PR or return support to the BN.

He admitted that the BN had made mistakes and paid a heavy price when the state was wrested by the DAP in the 12th general election.

“If people want change, development and the fulfilment of the needs of all races, it would be better to change from now as the 13th general election is not far away. Also BN is not like PR that oppresses a race,” he added


This is requested by UMNO or "Rakyat" ?....Nonsense...

“BN will not interfere but leave it to the people to make a change. For two years of DAP rule, there has been no progress, no new investment, rather the rights of one race are sidelined although not in the name of race but their action shows the DAP’s prejudice."

What rubbish is this Ahmad Zahid talking about? Did he not hear that Penang is the most well managed state in Malaysia, even recognised internationally? Which hole did he crawl out from. I am worried of Malaysia's Defence.

what a joke. just based on accusations from UMNO and UMNO related NGOs. This guy should spend more time in his ministry!!!

We have a PM who cannot run the country and whose most recent failure is the loss and theft of two jet engines while he was Defence Minister. Now he seeks to deflect attention by focusing attention elsewhere.

All that can be confirmed is that the only commodity that this PM has in abundance and excess is DECEIT!

Why not a Royal Commission to study whether the UMNO led BN can lead Malaysia? After 50 over years of "leadership", the country is only just, just ahead of Zimbabwe ..

Then we will know how well the government is run. You have HINDRAF making complaints to Britain but their activists were detained under ISA. How you have Malay NGO making issues, but instead of detaining them for disturbing the peace, some idiot of minister asks for Royal Commission.

another way to waste our tax money. Use our hard earn $$ to study how they can regain control of Penang gov. Does PR ever use that $$ to do the same on you?

Zahid Hamidi, you are one sick person because you have grown in weight and waistline. What investment has the BN government brought in for Malaysia for the past two years except only think of getting back the states that Bn has lost to PR.

Always using dirty tactics to gain control thinking that the rakyat is stupid and blind.
Furthermore, you,UMNO, have not only sideline the non-malay but also your own people, the malay, by enriching the umnoputras through NEP instead of really helping the poor. We the non-malay really do not mind if the government really help the poor but the way you help yourself through corrupted means and sidelined the poor is what make us angry.

So all Malaysian do wake up before it is too late to help the nation of Malaysia, UMNO is sucking us dry through evil schemes and empty promises after promises. They are evil.
