Najib’s daughter engaged to be married......with Mickey Mouse...and then wasting the public fund...!!!!

thus presumably the daughter of Najib when married with the devil....ha ha ha

The daughter of Datuk Seri Najib Razak was today betrothed to her college sweetheart in a ceremony at the Prime Minister’s residence in Putrajaya.

Nooryana Najwa and fiancé Daniyar Nazarbayev exchanged their engagement vows in a grand ceremony attended by family, friends, diplomats and royalty.

The couple, both aged 22, had met while studying in the United States, where Nooryana attended Georgetown University in Washington, while Nazarbayev went to Columbia University in New York.

Gracing the ceremony today were Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Nur Zahirah, Sultan of Pahang Sultan Ahmad Shah and the Sultanah of Pahang Hajah Kalsom, Tengku Mahkota Pahang Tengku Abdullah and Raja Muda of Perak Raja Nazrin Shah.

Also present was Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed Zayed Al Nahyan, who arrived today for a state visit, and wife Sheikha Salam Hamdan Al Nahyan.


Normally engagement is a quiet family affair. How come this one has King and Queen and foreign dignitaries attending? Stop wasting public fund and time on your personal affair. We don't give a hoot if she's married to Mickey Mouse.

While the rakyat are tightening their borrowed belts, the Najibs' daughter and fiancé Daniyar Nazarbayev exchanged their engagement vows in a grand ceremony attended by family, friends, diplomats and royalty

Facebook fiasco earns Yen Yen Cabinet colleagues’ ire

Already facing growing public discontent, Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen was confronted with a hostile Cabinet today when she tried to explain her ministry’s controversial RM1.8 million outlay on six Facebook pages and was even told by some colleagues not to waste their time.

Several ministers also insisted against announcing that Cabinet had officially accepted Ng’s explanation, preferring instead to say they had taken note of it.

A source who was familiar with what transpired said this was because the ministers did not want Ng to publicly declare that she had been cleared of guilt by the Cabinet led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

The source told  that rather than addressing the root cause of the allegations against her, the tourism minister had chosen to beat around the bush in defending herself.

Ng, who is also MCA vice-president, was scheduled to explain to the Cabinet today her ministry’s RM1.8 million expense bill for developing six Facebook pages to promote tourism in Malaysia.

“She did not explain [the] cost, not the cost or bill. Only the importance of cyber advertising and other [nonsense],” said the source.

The source said when it grew clear that Ng had no plans to divulge further details or provide a breakdown of her expenses, several ministers cut her short.

“She was trying to explain but she did not finish because people asked her to stop. They said she was just wasting their time. She was not talking about the main thing — the cost and why she spent so much,” said the source.

But the source noted that it was unclear if the prime minister considered Ng’s explanation satisfactory or planned to pursue the matter further.

“The PM was silent on that part. What is clear is that the ministers only want to say that Cabinet has taken note of her explanation and that she should not go and say that Cabinet has accepted it,” said the source.

The debacle over the Tourism Ministry’s Facebook expenses first began on Tuesday when Ng’s deputy, James Dawos Mamit, revealed in Parliament that RM1,758,432 was spent on developing six Facebook pages for Malaysia’s tourism.

He had said each of the six pages — Cuti-Cuti 1 Malaysia, Citrawarna 1Malaysia, Karnival Jualan Mega 1 Malaysia, Festival Pelancongan Seni Kontemporari 1 Malaysia, Kempen 1 Malaysia Bersih and Fabulous Food 1 Malaysia — cost RM293,072

The announcement drew condemnation from the online community and a spontaneous campaign was kicked off on Tuesday evening, inviting thousands to condemn Ng’s exorbitant spending.

Her ministry first entered the spotlight late last year when it was revealed in Parliament that while Ng had slashed her tourism promotional budget, she had spent more for her official trips abroad.

Ng again came under fire after Tourism Malaysia’s former advertising agency alleged that the ministry had asked for bribes in exchange for a promotion contract.

Following the latest complaint against Ng, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said yesterday that the Cabinet would seek an explanation from her over the matter and that an investigation would be mooted if she failed to do so satisfactorily.


You see CSL said, no cabinet minister for MCA if no support from the Chinese we can see he would be right come next GE,,,,,,,,,just look at this MCA minister,,,,,,,,shame shame shame

public money is involved and you chose her to be made a minister, why are you silent on the issue?

Were MCA ministers among those who cut her short when she beat about the brushes on her explanation. Another nail on MCA's coffin.

The government does not have enough fund to send our top SPM scorers overseas to pursue their studies. But, look at how Ng Yen Yen spent the rakyat's hard-earned money!

Ng Yen Yen, please search through your soul and see if there is any conscience left!

Chua Soi Lek, why are you keeping dumb on this issue? Ng Yen Yen has, many a time, been a liability to MCA. If you think MCA still needs our solid support, please by all means, get Ng Yen Yen out of the cabinet!

BN MPs to back anti-Lynas campaign...????

Several Barisan Nasional (BN) lawmakers are expected to join the growing campaign against Lynas Corp’s rare earth plant near Kuantan, in the hopes their support will halt the controversial nuclear plant’s construction permanently.

The campaign against the RM700 million refinery in the Gebeng industrial zone has been led so far by Kuantan MP and PKR vice-president Fuziah Salleh, along with local and Australian environmental groups, citing concerns over potentially hazardous waste that may result from processing rare earths.

“The plan right now is to get BN MPs, to oppose the [construction] of the [refinery]... it has to be ideally a bi-partisan approach, this has to go beyond political allegiances,” a BN source told The Malaysian Insider in Parliament earlier this week.

The source said there were “rising concerns” within the federal coalition that the risk factors were “too great” should the plans to build the rare earth refinery carry on as planned.

“This is about the safety of the Kuantan folk; we don’t know how safe it is... it is better to not go ahead with this.

“There is also concern that should this backfire, BN would be affected, and the repercussions may be too deep,” added the source.

BN support against the project has, however, been tepid, as seen during a Parliamentary briefing on the plant yesterday, where no BN MPs were seen attending it.

The project is currently frozen pending a month-long review by a team of international experts.

The government ordered the review after bowing to public pressure in April and is awaiting recommendations from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)-led review panel due at the end of the month.

Local residents and environmentalists have opposed the refinery due to fears of radiation pollution that has been linked to diseases such as cancer as well as birth defects.

But Lynas, who insists that the facility is safe, is confident that its plans to begin operations in September will not be delayed despite the government review.

It expects a windfall of RM8 billion once the plant is running at full capacity by 2013, producing rare earth metals that are crucial for high technology products such as smartphones, hybrid cars and wind turbines.


NOT EVEN ONE BN MP SPEAK OUT. THIS SHOW how much they care on the welfare over the rakyat. such bunch of spineless no principle MP. how to vote for them again.

or may be..

Several Barisan Nasional (BN) lawmakers are expected to join the growing campaign against Lynas Corp’s rare earth plant near Kuantan, in the hopes their support will halt the controversial nuclear plant’s construction permanently.

Actually they want some cheap publicity and some cheap votes when GE come along.

Umno Youth to gather on July 9, rival Bersih rally

Umno Youth will organise a gathering on July 9 to “ strengthen the democratic system” and rival electoral reform group Bersih 2.0’s rally on the same day.

Its chief Khairy Jamaluddin said it won’t join the Bersih rally, which is also facing a counter-protest by Malay rights group Perkasa.

“Umno Youth will organise a gathering on July 9 to strengthen the democratic system. Won’t join Bersih because they have opposition agenda,” the Rembau MP wrote in his Twitter microblogging account.

He had earlier chaired an Umno Youth council meeting today.

Police have said it won’t issue permits for any rally in the city on that day, when a rock concert featuring Sweet Charity and Blues Gang will be held later that night.


Anyone opposing Bersih, means they prefer Kotor.

So what does that say for UMNO youth?
Looks like they prefer KOTOR.
(True colours are showing.)

Now the UMNO youth aka Legalised Mat Rempits wants to join the band wagon
khairy you talk nonsense. if you stand for democracy then you should stand together with the BERSIH rally you idiot. they carry agenda for free and fair election and that's democracy. wonder where his oxford degree comes from!

Make sure each group wear different colour t shirts. Then we can count which group is larger. The police should give the permits to all the group and control them so that nobody cross the lines to create troubles. Lets make July 9 as a public outing day. Bring the family together and make it a 1Malaysia day so that the PM can also get some mileage. The government do not need to spend RM 29 million and yet can get more than one million participants.

The tv can also organize a forum on what is fair elections as wanted by the citizens. The leaders of the groups can be panel members. The government and the police must think positively. The businessmen will also be happy because a million hungry and angry people will assemble in the city. The out of town people will also spend money on their food and lodging while they are in town. The Tourism Malaysia can co sponsor the events and claim credit for promoting the biggest domestic tourist event. If successful make it into an annual affair.

Witness says Khir told him to lie to MACC

The key witness in Dr Mohd Khir Toyo’s corruption trial accused the former Selangor mentri besar today of pressuring him to lie to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and not to implicate him.

Ditamas Sdn Bhd director Shamsuddin Hayroni testified today that Dr Khir (picture) had asked him “not to involve him in the charge” when the former gave his statement to the anti-graft body in 2009.

“Many times, I was promised that this case was under control and he (Dr Khir) and I would not be prosecuted,” said Shamsuddin at the High Court here today.

“When I went to the MACC, I believed I was just a witness...When the MACC came with a charge sheet in this court, there Datuk Seri Khir Toyo told me ‘Don’t worry, Shamsuddin. We can solve this’,” added the construction and property developer.

Shamsuddin said in a breaking voice that he did not want to “shame” anyone before Judge Datuk Wira Mohtarudin Baki interrupted him, saying: “This is not a forum or speech.”

“I was charged and I don’t understand why I was charged,” said the 55-year-old businessman.

When Shamsuddin, who was dressed in a black suit, said he was “pressured” by Dr Khir not to implicate him, the Umno politician shook his head and a disapproving noise sounded in the packed gallery.

Shamsuddin testified yesterday that he “was asked” to inform the MACC in 2009 that he had sold his palatial home and two plots of land in Section 7 here to Dr Khir to cut his losses, which he insisted today was untrue.

The balding businessman also said he told the national graftbuster that he had appointed landscape artist Nasir Ismail to renovate the mansion, but stressed yesterday that the latter was actually appointed by Dr Khir.

Shamsuddin added that he did not tell the MACC that he had sold his properties to the man, who had helmed the country’s richest state for almost eight years, below market value.

The businessman testified recently that he sold the properties to Dr Khir in 2007 for RM3.5 million despite buying the properties for RM6.5 million in 2004, because he feared for his Selangor business interests.

Shamsuddin was charged last December with abetting Dr Khir in an allegedly fraudulent deal involving the latter’s Balinese-style mansion.

The prosecution, however, dropped all charges against Shamsuddin earlier this month, after which he said he changed his statement to the MACC.

“Do you agree that you gave a false statement (to the MACC in 2009) which is a crime under the MACC Act?” asked Dr Khir’s lawyer Kamarul Hisham Kamaruddin today.

“The statement was because of pressure from Datuk Seri Khir Toyo,” replied Shamsuddin, adding that the MACC did not force him to give a false statement.


BN with such people cannot take over Selangor. Wait and dream.

all this does is just delay the case being dismissed - all a couple of years, he'll be back in politics..again, holidays to Disneyland...and the cycle continues

Luckily, PR took over Selangor, if not all this would be swept under the carpet. PR keep on digging maybe you may hit a goldmine. Never mind for the BeNd to control the Putrajaya NOW, at least expose their wrong doing for all the Malaysian to know their dirty corrupt practices.

Looking at the daily news media online , there are never ending stories of how our leaders are sucking the country dry day by day , wondering whether the rakyat is suffering or not as for me I'm beginning to feel the pinch of current lifestyle trying to make ends meet without knowing what gonna happen next in future , the leaders just tell us to adjust our lifestyle but the way they are spending money on unnecessary expenses really puzzles me.

Really contemplating of migrating to another country even becoming taxi driver is better off than continue to struggle here. Our country is beyond help already cause it has reach cancerous disease stage 4.

slaughter of the people .... cronies in priority....RM63.9m spent on consultants and ETP, GTP open days

A total of RM63.9 million was spent to hire consultants for Pemandu and to organise three open days for Government Transformation Plan (GTP) and Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) initiatives, the government said today.

Minister in the prime minister’s department Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon said that the government had paid RM36.3 million to various consultants, while RM27.6 million was used for the open days in Kuching, Kuala Lumpur, and Kota Kinabalu last year.

In two written replies to DAP’s Liew Chin Tong, Koh said that the costs were justified as they were far lower than the allocated budget.

Koh said that Pemandu had appointed seven consultancy firms to execute government labs as well as prepare reports for showcasing purposes and press kits.

“The expenditure for consultants for eight National Key Result Area (NKRA) labs from September to October 2009 cost RM6.3 million, (and) it was managed wholly by the consultants.

“For 12 National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs) labs from May to June 2010, RM16 million (was spent) and for 12 other labs from January to November 2010 (the cost was) RM14 million, half of which Pemandu officers had conducted on their own.

“Whereas for six SRL (Strategic Reform Initiatives) that were organised from February to April 2011, they were completely managed by Pemandu officers, without the involvement of consultants,” said Koh.

Koh said that other governments around the world also engaged consultants and sought expert advice to provide guidelines and aid to the government to improve its performance.

Liew had also asked the government to state the publicity costs for the launch of, road shows and advertisements for the GTP and ETP programmes.

For the GTP programmes, Koh said the total cost of the open day, which took place over three days in Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, came up to RM5.4 million.

“Meanwhile, for communications and publicity, RM9.7 million (was spent), so in total, it was RM15.1 million,” he said.

He explained that RM5.44 billion had been allocated for GTP programmes last year and that the amount spent was less than 0.28 per cent of total allocations.

“It is also far less than the cost of communications spent by the private sector. It should be noted that six key result areas under the NKRA for 2010 achieved 93 per cent in performance and by spending RM4.31 billion, or only 80 per cent of the budget,” he said.

Koh said that the government had spent RM12.5 million for its ETP programmes — RM5.7 million for the launch and open day that took place over three days, as well as RM6.8 million for communications.


Oh that is how tax money spent on consulting and no subsidies for the poor! FANTASTIC SPENDING FOR A GOOD CAUSE? Do we have 2 million civil servants with incompatible brains with outsiders?

Then why do we need goverment departments ? Just to sit & makan kuih & minum kopi?

Ministry of thieves.....RM1.8m spent on Facebook pages

Rasah MP Anthony Loke wants Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen to explain the “exorbitant” costs involved in developing the Facebook pages

A whopping RM1,758,432 was spent on developing six Facebook pages to promote Malaysian tourism, the Tourism Ministry said today.

Deputy Tourism Minister James Dawos Mamit said this today in reply to a question from Anthony Loke (Rasah-DAP).

Each Facebook page cost RM293,072 — Cuti-Cuti 1 Malaysia, Citrawarna 1Malaysia, Karnival Jualan Mega 1 Malaysia, Festival Pelancongan Seni Kontemporari 1 Malaysia, Kempen 1 Malaysia Bersih and Fabulous Food 1 Malaysia.

The Citrawarna 1 Malaysia page has so far attracted 20,292 Facebook fans since it was launched on May 21.

Mamit said that the RM1.8 million included costs for designing, flash programming and coding, testing and debugging, uploading and launching the application, system server deployment and campaign management.

“You need RM1.8 million to run Facebook pages and applications? A six-year-old can start a Facebook page.

“If Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen has problems getting people to help start Facebook pages, DAP headquarters can help her out, we have people who can develop these things at no cost,” Loke told reporters later at a press conference.

Loke said that unless Ng explained the reasons behind the “exorbitant” costs for the “social media branding” exercise by her ministry, he would lodge a report to the Malaysian Anti-Crimes Commission (MACC).


and we wonder....... why we dont have money....... and they have all the money they want......

Another jokes of the day! Bravo MCA, BN. RM1.8 million for getting a facebook. I wonder how much goes to someone's pocket. wonder we need a supplementary budget of RM 13 billion.

“If Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen has problems getting people to help start Facebook pages, DAP headquarters can help her out, we have people who can develop these things at no cost,”


After the squat incident in JB these RM1.78 million overcharged costs just got flush down the longkang.

the 20,000 facebok fans would have been all the employees in Tourism ministry, their multiple kids and family?

Dick head....Najib says on people’s side on power deals, not IPPs’

Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today his government was siding with the people on power deals as it was still negotiating on terms with independent power producers (IPPs).

The prime minister also denied Putrajaya was only looking out for the interests of IPPs, seen to continue to enjoy the billion-ringgit subsidies courtesy of political patronage.

“The IPPs now, most of their formulas are no longer one-sided,” Najib told reporters after the Umno Ampang division annual meeting here. “We are negotiating with IPPS but it is not accurate to say we are on IPPs’ side.

“We are fighting for the people. The government will explain further on the IPPs because we are still negotiating.”

The Umno president said the government would come up with a statement in the “not too distant future”.

Following growing calls for power purchasing agreements to be reviewed, Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah earlier today announced that a Cabinet committee had been formed to evaluate the matter.

According to Bernama Online, he said the committee would study various aspects of power supply and not just the problem of independent power producers. Among them are production costs and requirements for the future because there were IPPs whose concessions were due to end in 2014 and 2015.

The committee comprises Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Nor Mohd Yakcop; Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Peter Chin; and Husni.

It remains to be seen if the establishment of the committee will be enough to assuage lawmakers calling for a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) to probe the apparently lopsided power deals between Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) and the IPPs.

First to sound the call yesterday was Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, who said it was crucial to tackle the issue of rising power prices before the effect began to take bigger bites out of the average consumer.

Today, the Umno stalwart found support in DAP, when secretary-general Lim Guan Eng added his party’s voice to that of the Kelantan prince.

The Cabinet raised power tariffs by an average of 7.12 per cent effective June 1, in a bid to trim a growing subsidy bill and widening fiscal deficit.

But the move has also thrown the spotlight on the purchasing power agreements that TNB is engaged in with the IPPs.

Opposition lawmakers have rounded on the Najib administration for wielding the knife on consumer aid while leaving gas subsidies to power producers — to the tune of RM19 billion this year — largely untouched.

The power purchasing agreements between TNB and the various IPPs are classified under the Official Secrets Act.


If you are negotiating, Najib, lets be transparent about it. Put all the negotiations on the internet so that we can all see and judge for ourselves whether UMNO is serving the interests of the IPPs or the rakyat's interest.

The rakyat want more transparency, and that includes the way the Elections Commission determines electoral boundaries.

Anything to do with their cronies is an Official Secret. The rest of the rakyat can't even take their pants off in a hotel room without getting videotaped.

Umno fears losing power in fair polls

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim accused Umno today of being afraid to hold fair and free elections, and pointed to a pro-government media campaign being waged against a planned electoral reforms rally.

The opposition leader also urged a 500-strong crowd in Brickfields here today to attend the rally organised by elections watchdog Bersih 2.0 on July 9.

“Why can’t Umno conduct free and fair elections?” said Anwar today.

“If they conduct free and fair elections, the fear is that they will lose,” he added.

Bersih’s first rally in 2007, where up to 50,000 were reported to have gathered in the city here, was said to have played a major role in bringing record gains for the opposition electoral pact in Election 2008, where it swept five state governments and won 82 parliamentary seats.

Umno daily Utusan Malaysia today urged Malaysians to boycott the protest and quoted Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein’s warning that “it will be chaotic when those for and against the street demonstration clash”.

Protesters during the first Bersih rally in 2007 were dispersed by water cannons and tear gas launched by the police.

Anwar accused government-controlled media of representing “the unjust and the corrupt”.

He said the people merely wanted to reclaim their constitutional rights to fair and free elections.

“Elections now are not fair and free,” said the PKR de facto leader.

“We’re not asking for extra votes for Indians, extra privileges for the Malays. We’re just demanding what the country promised,” he said.

Anwar further slammed Barisan Nasional (BN) for barring Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan from entering Sarawak just before the recent state elections there.

He said Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had invited him to observe the country’s elections today.

“He’s confident he has fair and free elections. Here, we’re not even outsiders (and the) Bersih chief was not even allowed to monitor elections. It means you have something to hide,” said Anwar.

PAS has promised to bring hundreds of thousands of supporters to the rally in the city, ahead of speculation that a general election will be called within a year.


UMNO/BN has never had a free and fair election ever since TDM became PM.

UMNO/BN is in a state of fear of losing in the next GE13. It is a known fact that UMNO/BN had all these while been unfairly using the government machinery such as the Election Commission, Police force, Information Ministry, and government media such as TV 1 & 2 and TV 3 to their advantage.

if the elections was free and fair,PR would have won the 2008 elections and this is a fact.every logical thinking malaysian knows how postal votes,vote rigging and buying is used here in malaysia.

i'm not pro PR but it's unfair if the voice of the majority is shunned just as what is happening is happening in the arab land this year.these people are public servants and NOT public masters.

Taib should take leave while under probe

Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud should go on leave until the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) complete their probe into allegations of his corrupt practices, Lim Kit Siang said today.

The pro-government New Straits Times have highlighted the probe, which began after Taib won the Sarawak polls in April. The long-serving chief minister has resisted Putrajaya’s call to step down sooner than later, prompting a media campaign on his alleged graft offences.

“Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has confirmed that it is currently investigating Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud over allegation of timber corruption.

“Its chief commissioner, Abu Kassim Mohamed said two days ago that the commission was in the process of gathering more information regarding the matter.

“Is ‘gathering more information’ tantamount to a corruption investigation under the MACC Act 2009 or is it an activity which can be outsourced to any research organisation?” Lim (picture) asked in a statement today.

He added although what Abu Kassim said is a “great improvement to his stony silence” just two months ago, Sarawakians and Malaysians are entitled to know clearly and definitively whether MACC has opened files to investigate into the “grand corruption” allegations against the Sarawak Chief Minister.

The MACC chief commissioner Datuk Seri Abu Kassim Mohamed confirmed two days ago that investigations into the nation’s longest serving chief minister’s wealth are still ongoing, and did not elaborate on the progress.

Abu Kassim had also said the anti-graft body was unaware over reports that Finma (the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority) was investigating Taib’s assets in Switzerland.

Whistler-blower website Sarawak Report reported last month that the president of the Swiss Federation, Micheline Calmy-Rey, had forwarded information about Taib’s Swiss assets to its regulatory body Finma for investigation.

According to the report, Calmy-Rey was quoted as saying in an official letter that Switzerland “seriously” viewed the concerns that have been raised internationally about Taib’s alleged profiteering from timber corruption and was unhappy that such assets may have been invested in Switzerland.

“When did the MACC begin corruption investigations (as distinct from ‘gathering more information’) against Taib and why must MACC act only after international pressure emanating from the Swiss Federation President Micheline Calmy-Rey after she forwarded the information about Taib’s assets in Switzerland to its regulatory body Finma (the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority) for investigation?

“In any event, shouldn’t Taib Mahmud go on leave until MACC has cleared him of grave ‘grand corruption’ allegations as otherwise it would be a shame to Sarawak and Malaysia to have a state Chief Minister actively under MACC investigations following international pressures,” Lim said.


With Taib around, it's more likely justice will be obstructed,,,,,,more so when he's the most powerful and influential guy in Sarawak,,,,Umno should not just talk about ''fighting corruption - Umno must ensure that justice be served without Taib's influential interference in Sarawak ??? He must be demanded to go on leave by Umno ???

If not of international pressure, our MACC do not bother to investigate because it will open a can of worms that will link UMNO warloads as well.

or.....Just wasting time and tax payer money which doesn't give any positive results...just a wayang kulit from UMNO...

abuse of power...Man held three nights for not wearing seat-belt

Lim (right) speaks while alleged police abuse victim Edmund Hiew looks on during their press conference June 11, 2011

A bank manager accused the Malacca police today of detaining him for three nights in a lock-up for not wearing a seat-belt while driving.

Edmund Hiew, 26, admitted that he did not wear a seat-belt when arrested while driving four friends in Malacca last month.

He said the police then put him in a lock-up after accusing him of trying to obstruct them from carrying out their duties.

“I asked them what did I do that could be classified as obstructing a civil servant from carrying out his duty, but they did not want to tell,” Hiew told reporters today.

Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng, who is a lawyer, said police cannot arrest anyone for failing to wear a seat-belt.
“Until now, he (Hiew) has not been charged. He has been released without condition,” said Lim at a joint press conference today with Hiew and DAP publicity chief Tony Pua.

“The only offence he committed was (getting) a traffic summons for not wearing a seat-belt,” the lawyer added.

Hiew said he was “shocked” when he found out in the magistrate court on May 29, after spending the night before in the police lock-up, that he was accused of violating section 186 of the Penal Code.

“I was accused...of obstructing a civil servant from carrying out his duties by scolding a police sergeant ‘Lu apa kuasa mau ambik gua punya IC dan lesen’ (What powers do you have to take my IC and license?),” said Hiew, adding that he was only released on May 31.

The young man today denied saying those words and pointed out that he had given his identity card and driving license to the police.

Lim said the police had abused their powers by not informing Hiew the grounds of his arrest.

“The police (also) has to tell him he has the right to see a lawyer,” said the Segambut MP, referring to section 28A of the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC).

Section 28A(2) states that “a police officer shall, before commencing any form of questioning or recording of any statement from the person arrested, inform the person that he may...communicate or attempt to communicate and consult with a legal practitioner of his choice”.

Hiew, who is a DAP member, said he was not beaten up by the police or received threats of physical abuse.

Pua said it was a “clear-cut case of abuse of power”.

“An independent body must be set up to ensure such abuse of power doesn’t happen anymore,” said the Petaling Jaya Utara MP.


PM, Hisham..this abuse of power and disregard for the Law must be stopped
You dont want Malaysia to descend to the cultureof other third world countries
where its the norm

There is no politics involved..simply just petty offences not at criminal
Good thing ,its nothing racial or religious


The opposition must capitalise on this abuse of power and make it an election topic. They must reassure the public, UMNO heartlanders included, that they will make the Police a good, effective and people serving institution.

Najib ‘uncivilised’ for seeking Selangor at any cost

PKR deputy president Azmin Ali called Datuk Seri Najib Razak “uncivilised” today for urging Umno to recapture the country’s wealthiest state, Selangor, with whatever “weapon was at their disposal”.

The prime minister said last month that Umno must forget it lost the central state to Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in 2008, but rise to win it back.

“I want to ask Najib, what does he mean ‘at all cost’?” said Azmin at the launch of PKR’s “Jelajah Selangor Tawan Putrajaya” (Jelas) campaign here today.

“Kill? C4 (bombs)? Rob? Snatch? Blow up? Bribe? This is a statement of an uncivilised prime minister who doesn’t believe in democracy,” he added.

Azmin also pointed out that PR only needed swing votes of 2.8 per cent in Sabak Bernam and 3.1 per cent in Pandan to win the parliamentary seats.

Umno’s Datuk Abdul Rahman Bakri is the Sabak Bernam MP while MCA’s Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat is the Pandan MP.

Azmin said PR was ready to wrest the Tanjong Karang parliamentary seat from Selangor Umno deputy chief Datuk Seri Noh Omar in the next general election that is expected to be called within a year.

“Even though Tanjong Karang is not represented by Keadilan but PAS, we want to tell Najib that our ties in Pakatan Rakyat are strong enough,” said the Gombak MP at a hall packed with some 200 PKR members.

“Our goal is one: Umno must be buried in the coming election,” he added.

Noh, who is the minister of agriculture and agro-based industry, retained the Tanjong Karang constituency by defeating PAS’s Mohamed Hanipa Maidin with a 3,820-vote majority.

Umno won the Sungai Burung and Permatang state seats in the Tanjong Karang constituency.

PKR also launched its election machinery in Selangor and its Wanita wing’s “Jelajah Kampung” (Wajah) campaign today.

Selangor PKR Wanita chief Haniza Talha said there was poor response among women to the party’s programmes during the first phase of the Jelas campaign.

“We want to find new voters, especially women... in rural areas... who do not support us because our message hasn’t reached them,” said Haniza.


They spent RM500,000 in Sarawak state elections.I think they are ready to throw RM1billion in Selangor,including all the "dirty political tricks" they are good at.

Umno Najib has becoming such a frightened desperado, that he has personalized himself to be like Mongolian warrior Genghiz Khan or like the Nazi madman Hitler thinking that's the way he intends to do like outlaw savage when he stated: with whatever 'weapon at their disposal'

" At All Costs " is a scary and hard to accept proposition. More so in politics.

It connotes treachery, back-room deals, use of underhanded tactics, tricks and deceptions, high-handedness, manipulation and bullying, corruption and abuse, etc., etc.

Can we take and allow all those?

No right-thinking person can stomach the 'at all costs' modus operandi. Seems like Najib has ostracised himself ahead of the GE!
