Running Scared in Malaysia...

The government of Najib Razak is demonizing protesters demanding free and fair elections.The Malaysian government has pulled out all the stops to prevent an opposition rally this weekend. This week, army units conducted crowd control exercises with banners that said, "Disperse or we will shoot!" The police set up roadblocks and arrested Malaysians simply for wearing yellow T-shirts, the signature color of Bersih, a coalition of 62 nongovernmental organizations that demands changes in Malaysia's electoral system. To date, the police have arrested over 250 supporters of Bersih, claiming that they are "waging war against the king."

Then something unprecedented happened. Malaysia's King Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, allegedly the target of Bersih's campaign, intervened. He called on both Prime Minister Najib Razak and Bersih to resolve their differences in a spirit of harmony and cooperation, for the good of the nation.

There was a collective sigh of relief in Malaysia. The leader of Bersih, Ambiga Sreenevasan, an attorney and former president of the Malaysian Bar Council, met with the king and announced that the "Walk for Democracy," as it was called, was cancelled. She said that she was ready to meet with the government to discuss Bersih's concerns about electoral fairness. Prime Minister Najib then offered an olive branch, saying, "We are willing to provide a stadium for them to rally in … from morning until night," an offer that Ms. Ambiga and Bersih immediately accepted.

Then Mr. Najib backed off. His government says that because Bersih is still illegal, it cannot apply for a permit. It also has banned Bersih's leadership from entering Kuala Lumpur on the day of the rally. On Thursday, he joined a gathering of martial artists who said that their 50,000 members will "wage war" against Bersih. Donning their militant uniform, Mr. Najib said, "If there are evil enemies who want to attack the country from within, you, my brothers, will rise to fight them."

Mr. Najib has undermined the authority of the king, who gave Bersih and its concerns credence by meeting with its leadership and calling for a negotiated solution. The political situation in Malaysia is a fast-moving target, and each day brings new developments. Ms. Ambiga and Bersih now say that because of Mr. Najib's actions, they will go ahead with their assembly, no matter what.

Nobody knows what will happen tomorrow. Bersih's main issue is not freedom of assembly but the fairness of Malaysia's democratic process. Bersih's backers ask how anyone can be opposed to free and fair elections. It's an easy question to answer. The United Malays National Organization, of which Mr. Najib is president, is the longest continuing ruling party in the world, and it is running scared.

In the last general election in 2008, Malaysia's opposition took 47% of the popular vote. That year Parti Keadilan Rakyat, the party of Mr. Najib's nemesis Anwar Ibrahim, went from one seat to 31. The establishment parties in Malaysia's neighboring states are also in retreat. The opposition scored a major victory in Thailand last weekend, and in Singapore opposition candidates made surprising gains. No wonder Mr. Najib and company are worried.

Many observers of Malaysian politics believe that electoral reform will lead to the ruling party's defeat, and that is why UMNO is afraid of Bersih. In the last election in 2008, the party received only one-third of the nation's votes. UMNO rules only because of its coalition with other political parties, which it increasingly marginalizes, that represent the Chinese and Indian minorities.

Mr. Najib and his allies say that the opposition's gains in 2008 prove that Malaysia's elections are free and fair. Impartial observers disagree. Academic studies have enumerated how the Election Commission gerrymanders electoral districts to benefit the ruling party. The U.S. Department of State's human rights report bluntly states that opposition parties are unable to compete on equal terms with the governing coalition because of restrictions on campaigning and freedom of assembly and association. "News of the opposition," the U.S. says, is "tightly restricted and reported in a biased fashion."

In the recent state elections in Sarawak, the government announced $390 million in local projects during the run-up to the polls. Prime Minister Najib was caught on video tape telling one village gathering that the government would give them 5 million ringgit ($1.5 million) for a local project on Monday, but only if they elected his candidate on Sunday.

Who would win elections in Malaysia that truly are free and fair? The U.S. State Department reports that despite the many election irregularities during the 2008 elections, "most observers concluded they did not substantially alter the results." But unless the electoral reforms that Bersih is calling for are made, we will never know.

Despite the government's intimidation, thousands of Malaysian citizens of all races and religions are expected to exercise their constitutional right to assemble and call for free and fair elections. Tomorrow's protest represents a brave step in what not just Malaysians but also the international community should hope will begin the country's transition to full democracy. Mr. Najib should display his own courage and ensure that a peaceful rally that seeks the fundamental rights of democratic peoples everywhere does not turn into a bloody
confrontation.- John Malott

religion department become UMNO tool religious Embezzlement...UMNO used Friday sermon accuses Bersih of manipulating Muslims...!!!

For the second week in a row, the Friday sermon in mosques throughout Kuala Lumpur attacked the credibility of Bersih’s organisers, accusing them today of causing disunity by questioning Islamic rights and manipulating Muslims.

The sermon, obtained from the website of the Malaysian Department of Islamic Development (Jakim), charged that the organisers were using many tricks to achieve their goals. The sermon is prepared by the government and read out in all mosques in Kuala Lumpur.

“The big question is, who exactly are these people who have become traitors to their religion, race and country? They have actually angered Muslims before. Questioning Muslim rights and manipulating some Muslim leaders who have been blinded by the pursuit for power,” said the prepared text.

The sermon did not name any of the leaders it was referring to, but it is believed to be aimed at Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders as well as the organisers of tomorrow’s rally.

Last week’s sermon accused Bersih’s leaders of being “extremists”, and had urged Muslims to reject the movement.

Today’s sermon however stated that the rally’s organisers undermined Islam through many means including legal measures. The speech also claimed that these leaders encouraged hatred among Malaysians by making provocative slogans.

“This is who they are, wearing masks on the pretext of upholding justice, making the rakyat a shield but the truth is that they have their own agenda to destabilise the country, weaken its rulers and destroy the harmony between the country’s citizens,” added the sermon.

The sermon warned Muslims against supporting any cause which could jeopardise the country’s peace and security.

“As Muslims who love their religion, race and country, do not be fooled by their lies. Let us unite in defending every inch of our land from being invaded by enemies of Islam, unite so that every effort by our enemies will not bear fruition,” said the sermon.

It urged Muslims to abide by the wishes of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin that peace and security of the nation should be the utmost priority at all times


Aren't sermons supposed to connect people to God? And aren't mosques a place of worship? Why then hop onto the bandwagon of politics? A religious sanctuary is a place I would want to hear and learn about God, not politics. I get plenty of politics from the dailies already. Don't use religion to cause dissension in the populace. Separate state from religion, please.

This being the most stupid episode of wayang kulit ever. BN places their culprit in the mosque and extends its bad politics into holy place. If sermon wish to join politic, should him join next election. Shame of you!

may believe that if the minister squid spoke..???...Hisham says no plans for military action, won’t shut Internet

Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein pledged today that the government will not resort to deploying military personnel for the Bersih rally tomorrow, nor will Internet services be disrupted.

Electoral reform movement Bersih has vowed to press ahead with a rally calling for free and fair elections at Stadium Merdeka despite the authorities rejecting a police permit and withholding permission to use the historic venue. Two other groups, Perkasa and Umno Youth, have also been barred from carrying out counter-protests.

“We don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, or the day after. But under the law, there are provisions, so at the moment, we feel that there are police in place, so there is no necessity to talk about the military,” the Home Minister told reporters at the Bukit Aman federal police headquarters here.

Hishammuddin said the government will react according to how events unfold tomorrow. City authorities and the police have said some 32 roads will be closed to traffic while express bus services from the city centre have been rerouted to Hentian Duta.

The police have also brought in personnel from beyond the city limits to aid in the operations. They have also applied for court orders to bar 91 people from Bersih, Umno Youth and Perkasa from entering the city tomorrow.

Bersih, a loose coalition of 62 non-governmental organisations, has insisted that it will not move its rally away from Stadium Merdeka tomorrow, stating that it is too late for its supporters to change their plans.

It has also demanded that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who proposed on Monday that Bersih move its street march to a stadium, instruct Stadium Merdeka to allow the rally to take place in the historical venue.


Just imagine the police reaction if everyone turn up tomorrow wearing an Ambige face mask.

Government will definitely hire some troublemakers to pose as Bersih members to cause riot tomorrow.

Next, send in the FRU to 'control'.

Then disperse the gathering with violence and label them as violent protesters.

Bersih, I hope you people have the necessary preparations to make sure none of their moles ever get near you people. Godspeed.

Just the thought of using the military to quell a peaceful rally for clean, free and fair elections is enough to bury Umno for a hundred year.

DSS....denial syndrome disease...IGP denies telcos asked to restrict Internet

UMNOPORNO and Najib slaves ...

Police have denied meeting telecommunications companies to limit internet access, especially to social media such as Facebook and Twitter ahead of Saturday’s Bersih rally.

Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said that the rumour was spread by irresponsible people who have “certain motives to discredit the police.”

“I will take action against people who make up this kind of stories and haul them to court,” the police chief told reporters today.

Rumours of blockages or outages in internet access had begun to circulate last night.

“Reliable source: Bakri from Bt Aman called meeting of telcos to disrupt social network on 8/9 July,” PKR communications director Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad had posted on Twitter last night, referring to the federal criminal investigations chief Datuk Mohd Bakri Zinin.

Mohd Bakri had refused to comment on the allegation when contacted by The Malaysian Insider this morning.

Bersih supporters, especially those gathered by Pakatan Rakyat (PR) are expected to use online channels to mobilise themselves in the face of likely police intervention.

Ismail reiterated today that any Bersih-related activity leading up to and including the rally will be deemed unlawful as the organisation was declared illegal last week.

A government clampdown over the past week that saw hundreds of Bersih supporters arrested only resulted in defiance from the electoral reform movement and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders, who have strongly backed the march as it seeks to build momentum ahead of a general election expected within the year.

The opposition coalition continue to insist that up to 300,000 will attend the rally, despite Bersih accepting a government offer to move the July 9 street march to a stadium.

The offer from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on Monday came after the Yang di-Pertuan Agong stepped in to diffuse tension on Sunday by asking the government and Bersih to come to the negotiation table.

Despite Bersih’s acceptance of Najib’s offer, authorities are still insisting that the coalition of 62 NGOs apply for a police permit to hold its event.

This is the second such rally organised by Bersih with the first in 2007 seeing an estimated 50,000 people take to the streets in the capital city before they were dispersed by riot police armed with water cannons and tear gas.

The event has been partly credited for PR’s record gains in Election 2008 when the opposition pact was swept to power in five states and won 82 parliamentary seats.


If allowed to march to Istana, Bersih's procession will only paralyze some part of kl's traffic flow. Now the police has come up with a solution that will paralyze the entire city. Ambiga is not a dangerous person. She is only a woman. Why are the police and BN government so scared of her? Just let her and her supporters gather peacefully. It is only a matter of two hours. If it is unbearable consider it a puff of wind. But the problem is that BN cannot bring itself to see the need for fair election. The actions of BN and police have simply left their reputation in tatters. They have sunk so low in the eyes of any thinking Malaysian.

another public holiday declared by scoundrel police ... City roads to be closed on July 9

The police are closing all major roads in and out of the city this Saturday to head off the three planned public rallies organised by the Bersih 2.0, Perkasa and Umno Youth.

City police chief Datuk Amar Singh said the police received reports some groups are planning to gather at certain hotspots downtown and advised the public to keep out of Kuala Lumpur for that day if they have no business to be in town.

But he said those who live and work in the area would be allowed in.

Amar said the police would employ the standard practice to check their identities but declined to elaborate when asked how the cops would know if a person lived there or not.

“We know,” he said.

The following are the roads closed to traffic on Saturday.

Jalan Syed Putra, Jalan Istana, Jalan Bukit Petaling, Jalan Bellamy and areas surrounding the Istana Negara.

Jalan Sultan Hishammudin, Jalan Lembah Perdana, Jalan Chenderasari and areas surrounding the National Mosque.

Areas surrounding Merdeka Square, Central Market, Majid Jamek, City Hall, Sogo, Maju Junction, Kampung Baru Mosque, Jalan Kinabalu, Jalan Kuching, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Raja Laut, Jalan Sri Amar, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Haji Taib, Jalan Raja Muda Musa, Jalan Raja Bot, Jalan Raja Abdullah, Jalan Dang Wangi, Jalan Munshi Abdullah, Jalan Gereja, Jalan Raja Chulan, Jalan Tun Perak, Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Loke, Jalan Sultan Mahmud and all areas within.


I guess all the traders and taxi drivers got their wish. Wonder if the Tourism Minister's forecast of billions being lost would come true.

Do you think businesses will be affected by this road closures? Let's see what are the comments from those business people who have made police reports against the rally.

July 9 2011 will go down in malaysia's history as the day that UMNO imposes its DICTATORSHIP DAY

the fake 1-malaysia propaganda....Najib of being insincere in Bersih row

DAP leader Lim Kit Siang accused Datuk Seri Najib Razak today of being insincere and irresponsible for continuing with the Bersih clampdown, despite the group heeding the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s call to hold the July 9 rally in a stadium.

The election watchdog has chosen Stadium Merdeka as the venue for this Saturday’s rally. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar has however told the polls reform group to hold its rally outside of the capital.

“Datuk Seri Najib Razak runs the risk of becoming the first Kafkaesque Prime Minister in Malaysia who does not mean what he says and does not say what he means,” Lim said in a statement today.

“Kafkaesque” relates to Czech Franz Kafka’s writings which centre around the bizarre, random, surreal forced by an impersonal administration where the individual feels powerless to understand or control what is happening.

The DAP advisor said that the King’s intervention of the row between Bersih and the government was “short-lived” when Najib “passed the buck” of allowing Bersih to hold its rally ay Stadium Merdeka to the police.

“It is reported that the Prime Minister will be leaving for overseas tomorrow. He should not do so but should be in the country to ensure that the Bersih 2.0 stadium rally on July 9 as agreed upon as a result of the wise and just intervention of the Yang di Pertuan Agong and with his concurrence is held in a smooth, peaceful and orderly manner,” added Lim.


actually Najib is very smart, if anything happened liked police beating "instigated rioters", or ISA clampdown, he can claim that his deputy mr potato heads are in charge, hence he can continue to be the mr nice guy in the fake 1-malaysia propaganda

one more UMNO dog flatterers...A Shah Alam Stadium rally needs permit too, says police chief

Police said today that Saturday’s rally if it were to be relocated to Shah Alam Stadium would still require a permit.

Shah Alam police chief ACP Ahmad Zahedi Ayob said today that no such permit has been issued to the Bersih organisers, according to Bernama Online.

Bersih is a coalition of 62 NGOs seeking for cleaner elections and electoral reforms, and which has been illegal since July 1 following a home ministry ruling.

Ahmad said police have not received any application for such a gathering, and if a permit was issued the gathering has to be peaceful and follow the law. He was speaking at the Selangor police contingent headquarters here.


Of course, everything needs a permit. Did Ahmad get a permit from the rakyat to be Shah Alam police chief?

Tainted corrupt PDRM Dont just follow blindly evil master's order UMNO!!! When PR become government Police will be held accountable for crimes committed blindly !!!

malaysia Mugabe countries....????....Ambiga, Ibrahim Ali, Khairy among 91 locked-out from KL this Saturday

Police have obtained court orders to prevent 91 persons associated with Bersih, Umno Youth and Perkasa from entering Kuala Lumpur this Saturday, and also to shut down city roads, to effectively paralyse any attempts to rally on the day.

City police chief Datuk Amar Singh also said that the public are strongly discouraged from going into the city on Saturday.

The persons named in the court orders can be arrested on sight, he added.

“The public can enter but we urge the public not to enter Kuala Lumpur on that day,” Amar replied when asked if the restriction order included the public.

Among those restricted under court orders are Bersih chief Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan, Perkasa chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali, Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin and Bersih steering committee member Maria Chin Abdullah.

Other notable persons barred from the city are Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim; his daughter and PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar; DAP leaders Lim Kit Siang and Teresa Kok; Perkasa secretary-general Syed Hassan Syed Ali; Independent MP for Kulim-Bandar Baharu Datuk Zulkifli Noordin; Jemaah Islah Malaysia president Zaid Kamaruddin; PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang and Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuik Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.

The individuals named in the orders include 66 from Bersih, 14 from Perkasa and 11 from Umno Youth.

Amar said the individuals named in the court order were being personally served the restriction notice today.

He said the restriction order was clear and that all of the 91 individuals are barred from even passing through the city between 8am and 6pm on July 9 — whether on foot or in any vehicle, including the public buses or trains.

He said those who breached the order would be committing an offence under Section 188 of the Penal Code, which is considered disobeying a public servant who is lawfully empowered to keep the peace and can be jailed up to six months and fined up to RM2,000.

“If they want to gather elsewhere, they will have to have a permit,” Amar said when asked if any action will be taken against those 91 if they assembled just outside the restricted zones.

He said the police have not received a single application for a permit from any party to date.

He also advised the parties to ensure they have booked the premises before applying for the permit as the police will have to consider the security angle of the chosen location.


So it is confirmed , this is a police state as administered by umno. Sleeping dogs mca, mic, pbs, gerakan, etc and now...PRDM is now Public Enemy number 1!

Now let's see if the business owners, who were so quick to lodge police reports and complaining their businesses will suffer because of the Bersih demo, will also do the same and blame this on the police this time for locking down KL. Syabas PDRM. At the same time, you might also want to inform all foreign embassies and tour operators to issue a travel advisory to their citizens to avoid coming to Malaysia.

Mimicking Bersih, Perkasa has no ball , now eyes stadium rally

Perkasa has applied to three stadiums in the capital city for its own rally on July 9 to counter the Bersih rally, the Malay rights group’s president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said today.

He explained that Perkasa has decided not to call off its “Gerak Aman” (Peace Movement) as Bersih has persisted in its wish to hold a rally to demand for free and fair elections even after meeting with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin yesterday.

“If Bersih truly acquiesces to and accepts the advice of the King, we will follow suit,” he told reporters at Dewan Kelab Sulaiman here today.

“But we all know that after Ambiga met the King, she said she would still have the rally in a stadium.”

Perkasa offered on Monday to call off its counter-rally as a sign of respect to the King’s call for peace but stressed that their decision depended on whether Bersih would cancel its planned rally this weekend.

Ibrahim said today that Perkasa has submitted applications to Malaysia Stadium Corporation this morning for the use of three stadiums in Kuala Lumpur — Stadium Merdeka, Stadium Negara and Stadium Titiwangsa — but had yet to receive a reply.

Perkasa may consider holding the Gerak Aman rally on another date if it is unable to book a stadium for Saturday, he said.

Ibrahim also revealed that 14,661 members of Perkasa and other non-governmental organisations — including 2,000 non-Malays — have already signed up for the counter-rally, adding that he expected this number to surpass 15,000 in the next few days.

In an unprecedented move, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin stepped in on Sunday to diffuse growing tension by advising the Najib administration and Bersih 2.0 to hold consultations over the issue of free and fair elections.

The constitutional monarch rarely issues edicts or statements but the heightened atmosphere over the past week had prompted Istana Negara’s intervention.


How much you will pay for each protestor? ....FROM mca gerakan & mic on orders from their political masters to sign up & attend...just like attendance at the perkasa demonstration...all pot-bellied * yellow-streaked eunuch lackeys.

This goon said that he cannot control his followers from making chaos and havoc, why on earth he want to proceed, just like to be provocators

as a result of consultation with the father the devil....Najib passes stadium buck to cops

Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today that Bersih, although still an illegal entity, will have to make an official application to the police despite the electoral reform movement agreeing to move a planned July 9 street rally to a stadium.

The prime minister also clarified that his offer to negotiate a suitable venue was on behalf of his administration, and not himself personally.

“We will leave it to the authorities. The police will decide in the interest of safety. An official application must be submitted.

“I never said I would personally meet them. Anyone in the government can negotiate,” he told reporters this evening in remarks which suggest the government appeared to be looking for a way out of the crisis by relying on the police not to issue a permit for the rally.

In a press conference this morning, Bersih said it would make several demands such as the release of those detained for supporting the rally, allowing the public to wear yellow T-shirts in support of the movement and the formation of a royal commission into electoral practices when it met the prime minister.

But Najib said he had yet to receive any official request from Bersih.

The Umno president added that the coalition of 62 NGOs, remains an illegal body but the application could be made by a registered organisation.

Both Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein and Deputy Inspector General of Police Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar had also insisted earlier today that Bersih was still outlawed and requires a permit for Saturday’s planned gathering.

“No, they are still banned, still illegal. Nobody can be above the law. Just because Tuanku met them, doesn’t mean they are no longer illegal,” Hishammuddin had said, referring to the audience granted by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to Bersih yesterday, after which it accepted the stadium offer.

The police have continued to make arrests in connection with the rally, most of which revolving around yellow T-shirts with the word Bersih emblazoned on them in a clampdown that has also seen Bersih being declared illegal.

But Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin stepped in on Sunday to defuse tension by advising the Najib administration and Bersih 2.0 to hold consultations over the issue of free and fair elections.


See how these double tongues UMNO snakes talk now..
It seems as though the advice of the King did not sink into Najib's, his cousin Kerismuddin's and their personal hencehmen, the Police's heads. The people have been fooled.

There is no double tongue about this. Najib, Hisham and UMNO are all obviously disrespectful of the Yang diPertuan Agong. His majesty's edict is that the government, led by Najib, should bolster democracy and dialogue with Bersih to meet the aspirations of the rakyat for free and fair elections. By his edict, His Majesty recognises Bersih. So for Hisham to continue declaring Bersih illegal is to defy His Majesty, even to show contempt for His Majesty.

Najib cannot pass the buck to the police because the police force is not the government. Najib is the head of the government and is therefore accountable. By trying to pass the buck, he is also disrespectful of the King and is also defying the King. UMNO can no longer claim to be loyal to the King. In fact, UMNO is holding His Majesty the King, and the office of the Yang diPertuan Agong in contempt! For that reason alone, Najib and Hisham, in particular, ought to be charged for treason and for insulting His Majesty.

match the face ... have to urinate with UMNOPORNO....Permit condition in bad faith, says Ambiga


Bersih chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan has accused the authorities of “lacking good faith” for demanding that the group apply for a permit to hold its planned stadium rally this weekend.

She said the latest hurdle to the July 9 rally for free and fair elections was “wholly inconsistent” with Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s earlier assurance that Bersih 2.0 could be held in a stadium, as well as the King’s wishes.

“Why are you asking us to apply for a permit when the prime minister has already okayed it?

“We don’t understand it,” she told the Foreign Correspondents’ Club (FCC) here.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar earlier today reminded Bersih to apply for a permit for Saturday’s rally, warning that failure to do so would still make the event an illegal gathering.

He said Bersih had yet to inform or notify the police of their plans for the rally but gave assurance that the group’s permit application process would be expedited in view of the urgency of the situation.

Khalid further warned that those found wearing Bersih T-shirts or possessing pro-Bersih materials would still be arrested by the police as the organisation was still considered illegal.

Malay rights group Perkasa has said it too will hold a stadium rally in the capital on July 9 to counter Bersih 2.0.

Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali also urged the police not to issue a permit to Bersih as it was an illegal organisation.

He warned that the police would be setting a “very bad precedent” by issuing a permit to the election reform group as Section 27 of the Police Act stipulates that no permits may be issued to illegal organisations or individuals representing such groups

The work of Perkasa or UMNO thugs (remember May 13?). ...police abetting...???....Police find weapons, say points to Bersih

Police have uncovered three weapons stashes near Sogo shopping complex here which they said appears to be “a preparatory move” by Bersih supporters ahead of the July 9 rally.

The weapons comprise three machetes, one butcher’s knife, one hand saw, eight Molotov cocktails, two metal pipes and some 40 firecrackers. Eight surgical masks and four Bersih T-shirts were also included among the weapons.

Some of the weapons and T-shirts seized which police say point to Bersih.
The three packages were found hidden among flowerpots in front of The Ship restaurant in Pertama Kompleks, behind Sogo and underneath the staircase of Wisma Bumi Raya, all within 150m of each other.

Police made the discovery at 6.30am yesterday after being tipped off by two members of the public who saw three suspicious masked men wearing white skullcaps in a silver Waja throw a plastic bag behind some flowerpots outside Pertama Kompleks.

Sogo is one of the three assembly points for the July 9 Bersih 2.0 rally, along with Dataran Merdeka and Kampung Baru Mosque.

Acting Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Amar Singh Ishar Singh said the find suggests that Bersih supporters are planning to use the weapons during this weekend’s planned mammoth rally.

“This is what we see. From the facts of it, from the surface of it, it looks like [the weapons] will be used by them for the rally and procession,” he told reporters at Kuala Lumpur contingent police headquarters here.

“You can see, the T-shirts are there. You can see Molotov cocktails have been set up and also weapons to be used. So, it clearly shows, on the surface of it, to be used during the rally.”

But Amar said the police were still “working all angles” to see who was responsible for planting the weapons.

“We’ll investigate on what is seen with us first and then we’ll see who actually planted these items,” he said.

He said police were now reviewing CCTV footage obtained from shops in the area to try and identify the three occupants of the Waja.

Amar added that there was a “high possibility” that there were more weapons stashes to be found and said the police were working to locate them.

Free Malaysia Today reported today that a similar cache of weapons was found in the jungle area behind a temple at Batu 12, Jalan Gombak Lama by Orang Asli men, who alerted the police of their find.

The online news portal, quoting sources, said five traveller bags and two garbage bags were found containing 44 Bersih T-shirts, 20 parangs, 36 Molotov cocktails, 16 lighters and hundreds of ball bearings for use as slingshots.


This is a joke!. Quote "who saw three masked, skull-cap-wearing men in a silver Proton Waja car throw a black plastic bag containing the items behind some flowerpots" - The order is you must be seen wearing a skull cap and masked. and throw the item behind a flowerpots... What a joke. Must be very cumbersome and difficult wearing balaclavas face mask and must wear skull cap... LOL....

Please can we have brainier type of anarchist something like the in Greek or German. Or are our would be demonstrator stupid.

isnt it sickening. Why did police link this immediately to BERSIH. Could it not be Perkisa or UMNO Youngs doing also??? Very sad that a professional institution is fanning the fire in broad daylight.

brothers and cousins ​​feet liar.....Najib lets cops decide on Bersih arrests

Despite agreeing to meet with Bersih 2.0 to arrange a rally venue, Datuk Seri Najib Razak today passed the buck to the police to decide whether to proceed with its nationwide pre-rally clampdown on supporters.

“That is the police’s action. You have to ask the police,” he said when asked if he would order the release of all those detained in connection with the rally.

The police have arrested more than 200 people, including opposition politicians and activists, in connection with the Bersih rally.

Six Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) members, including Sungai Siput MP Dr Michael Jeyakumar, have also been detained under the Emergency Ordinance.

Many have been detained or roped in for questioning for sporting yellow Bersih T-shirts or displaying Bersih materials, which the government has declared as illegal.

When asked if in view of the ban, Bersih rally participants would still be arrested for wearing the coalition’s signature yellow T-shirts, even in the stadium, Najib (picture) declined to comment.

“That is up to the police to decide,” he repeated.

The prime minister also refused to say today that if by allowing Bersih 2.0 to stage its rally indoors, he was effectively overruling the Home Ministry’s decision to outlaw the loose coalition.

“This is a point whereby we consider them illegal but they don’t consider themselves as illegal but what’s most important is public interest.

“I want to protect the Malaysian public from any untoward incidences and that is why I do not want this street demonstration to take place,” he told a brief press conference at his office here this afternoon.

He had earlier declared the government’s willingness to meet Bersih 2.0 officials to decide on an appropriate venue for their planned rally this Saturday.

Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan, fresh from an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong this afternoon, announced that the coalition had decided to call off its street rally but would instead accept the government’s offer to hold it in a stadium.

Last week, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein declared all pro-Bersih materials as illegal and that action would be taken against those found wearing or in possession of them.

He had also declared Bersih 2.0 an outlawed organisation, saying it was inciting people to create an atmosphere of unrest.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar has echoed Hishammuddin’s orders and warned last week that the police will not only arrest those sporting Bersih T-shirts but may also take action against anyone using any medium to promote the illegal rally.

“Not just T-shirts but shoes, cars, buses. If these are the tools used to encourage people to gather (illegally), this amounts to sedition,” he had said.


You and your cousin were the Supreme Advisors of PDRM. You say 'Yes' they dare not say 'No' to you as their position and promotion were base on your approval.

Smart move; pass the responsibility to the PDRM and you clean your hands. Kudos for being an example for all of us to emulate.

Najib are you saying you don't have power over PDRM or Home Minister..oh ya I forgot you have protocol and law to follow...Just like how you arrested 200 ppl

dick head najib play movie ...He agrees to meet Bersih over rally venue

Datuk Seri Najib Razak declared today that the government is ready to meet Bersih 2.0 to negotiate an appropriate venue for its July 9 rally but reminded the coalition that the offer would be conditional.

“I understand that Bersih wants to have a meeting with the government soon to consider the possibility of holding their demonstration in a stadium.

“We are ready to meet with them on that but on condition that they go in peace and leave in peace,” he said.

The prime minister said this during a brief press conference at his office here this afternoon to respond to the recent developments surrounding the rally that was called to demand for free and fair elections.

Najib (picture) declined, however, to say if he had met the Yang di-Pertuan Agong this morning despite mounting speculation, but noted his thanks to the constitutional monarch for his intervention.

“When I meet the King is my right and as the prime minister, I am the chief adviser to the King,” he said.

Najib added that it was due to the King’s intervention that all three rally organisers had decided not to hold their gatherings on the streets, which, he said, could threaten public peace and safety.

He praised the King for acting “responsibly and out of his deep concern” for the people’s welfare when the Ruler stepped in to call for a consensus between the government and Bersih 2.0 instead of a public protest.

“I would like to offer my thanks that all parties have chosen to respect his majesty’s wishes and with this, there will be no street demonstration this July 9,” he said.

Najib also claimed that both Umno Youth and Malay rights group Perkasa, which were initially scheduled to hold counter-protests this July 9, would not proceed with their plans.

“They are not going to do it. Because if Umno wants to respond, they will hold even larger gatherings. I can assure you, the crowd will be very big,” he said.

Both Umno Youth and Perkasa said yesterday that they would call off their rallies entirely if Bersih 2.0 agreed to do the same.

Bersih 2.0 decided to accept the government’s offer to hold its gathering at a stadium after their leaders were granted a rare audience with the King at Istana Negara this afternoon.

In an unprecedented move on Sunday, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin stepped in to diffuse tension by advising the Najib administration and Bersih 2.0 to hold consultations over the issue of free and fair elections.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein outlawed Bersih 2.0 effective July 1, saying it was inciting the people and creating an atmosphere of unrest. The police have also arrested more than 100 people in connection with the rally, most of them for wearing yellow T-shirts with the word Bersih emblazoned on them.

Police have also detained six Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) members, including Sungai Siput MP Dr Michael Jeyakumar Devaraj, for 60 days under the Emergency Ordinance in relation to the planned rally.


Why should the organisers be held responsible when the choice of venue was proposed by the PM? Moreover, why will there be any untoward incident when the police will be there too? The condition sounds ominous and lack of good faith...

Yesterday say can rally in stadium from morning till night. Now say "conditions". Next say no stadium available except 500 seater?? Nothing would surprise me.

As a matter of principle, the government should grant amnesty to all those they have nabbed and persecute for their support of Bersih 2.0. Surely, they have more rights as Malaysians than the 2 million illegal immigrants the government is prepared to give amnesty to for their offenses.

bastard frog play with fire...Ibrahim warns MCA, Gerakan against antagonising Malays

Datuk Ibrahim Ali today told MCA and Gerakan to make peace with Perkasa and the Malay community ahead of the next general election, warning that failure to do so would cost them dearly during the polls.

The Perkasa president predicted that only two parties would likely emerge victors in the coming polls — Umno and DAP — while Islamist party PAS together with MCA and Gerakan were likely to perform poorly.

Ibrahim then said both MCA and Gerakan still had time to “remedy” the situation by making sure that they improved their “political game”.

“If they still do not know how to play the political game... sometimes offending the Malays and crossing swords with Perkasa, then the Malay votes... at least from Perkasa members, you see their behaviours in the next election,” he told a press conference this afternoon.

Ibrahim also said MCA or Gerakan would not stand a chance against the DAP in seats with 70 per cent Chinese voters and above.

Both parties, he added, would only perform reasonably well in seats with at least 65 per cent Malay majority, and then only if they did not continue to “offend” the community.

“Now, all the Chinese votes will go to DAP. A good example is the Sarawak election. But if they remedy this, and they can at least win 90 per cent of Malay votes and one-third of Chinese votes, they have a chance.

“If not, they have no hope,” he said.

On PAS, Ibrahim said the Islamist party had lost much of its Malay support due to its support of issues that were deemed as anti-Muslim.

As an example, Ibrahim said PAS’s unbending support for Bersih 2.0’s planned rally this Saturday would cause it to lose Malay votes.

This, he claimed, was because the National Fatwa Council had already declared that the rally goes against Islamic principles.

“So the party that will face the largest casualties these coming polls is PAS. They are upholding things that they should not. The Malay votes that left Umno in the past will now return to Umno,” he said.


who cares what this man says! ...if MCA and Gerakan should 'kow toww' to Perkasa so not to lose so badly in GE

perkasa does not represent the fact perkasa only represents racial & religious divide which again has been raised as an issue by perkasa when there is no issue.
ibrahimali continues to degrade Malaysia and deny Malaysians of basic human rights with all his threats

rapist minister wins court case with the help of kanggaroo

Datuk Seri Rais Yatim has won his defamation suit against a blogger who posted an article alleging the minister had sexually assaulted a former maid.

In making her decision here today, High Court Judge Datin Zabariah Mohd Yusof said the evidence presented compelled her to deem the defendant, 42-year-old Amizudin Ahmat, liable.

Information minister Raid had initiated the lawsuit on January 1, over a posting on Amizudin’s blog at

On March 21, the High Court here granted an inter-parte injunction to restrain Amizudin from continuing to publish the article on his blog until the disposal of Rais’s suit against him.

In his statement of claim, Rais said the article contained false words that were malicious and implied he was of unchaste behaviour and loose morals.

The Jelebu MP denied the rape allegations in February after being named on the Internet.

Speaking after the ruling, Rais said he has always maintained his confidence in the justice system, adding that he was forced to sue in order to protect his reputation, as well as that of his family and the government.

Zabariah later set for submissions for damages to be made tomorrow.


"Rais said he has always maintained his confidence in the justice "

Yes, of course since are the minister. What if you were in semangat 46? You would have lost the case and shamed by Utusan.

Which UMNO minister can ever lose a case in a Malaysian court? Which Opposition leader can ever win a case in a Malaysian court?

IF umno morons cannot win in their own kangaroo courts,,,what is the use of the Kangaroo judges ?

Bersih to seek audience with King, willing to cancel rally

In an unexpected turn of events today, Bersih 2.0 pledged to abide by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s advice, saying it will seek an audience with him before Saturday and call off the rally if told to do so.

The group’s steering committee chairman, Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan, who had just returned from a meeting with former Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi this morning, made the announcement at a press conference here in the afternoon and revealed that the decision was reached during an emergency meeting held last night after the King released his statement.

Ambiga (right) speaking to the press in Petaling Jaya today, July 4, 2011. — Picture by Jack Ooi
“Bersih 2.0 offers its deep appreciation to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong for his support on the people’s aspiration to reform the election system.

“Bersih 2.0 will abide by his majesty’s advice to hold a dialogue towards achieving a consensus on electoral reform and the development of democracy in Malaysia,” she said, reading from a statement.

Ambiga added that Bersih 2.0 will write in to the palace today to seek an audience with the King.

She declined to say if the rally was officially called off as the King had said last night that street demonstrations brought more harm than good but stressed that an official announcement would be made once a meeting was set up.

Asked if she would call off the rally on request from the constitutional monarch, Ambiga said: “Yes.”
She reiterated that Bersih’s steering committee members had already agreed on its next move during last night’s meeting but wanted first to inform the King before making its decision public, out of respect to the royal institution.

Should the King refuse an audience, however, Ambiga declined to say if the rally would proceed as planned. Instead, she repeated that an announcement would be made “at that stage” and urged the media not to speculate.

Ambiga, however, agreed that Bersih’s final decision would depend on the Agong’s advice. “Yes, yes, absolutely,” she said.

The former Bar Council president also thanked the King for what she described as a “timely and necessary” intervention on the ongoing debacle.

“Where that is concerned, we welcome what he has done. It is a timely intervention, a necessary one, and as far as Bersih 2.0 is concerned, we are a peaceful movement,” she said.

Ambiga also expressed Bersih 2.0’s appreciation of Abdullah’s decision to wade into the matter and offer his assistance to seek a solution.

“He requested, through a mutual friend, to see me today to see how we can resolve the impasse. It was a timely intervention,” she said but refused to divulge further details on her meeting with the former prime minister.

Despite Bersih’s decision today to abide by the King’s advice, Ambiga continued to lambast the government for its use of the Emergency Ordinance to detain six Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) members and called for their “immediate and unconditional” release.

Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin had stepped in to defuse tension last night, advising the Najib administration and Bersih 2.0 to hold consultations over the issue of free and fair elections.

The constitutional monarch rarely issues edicts or statements but the heightened atmosphere over the past week has prompted Istana Negara’s intervention.


If Bersih 2 is now cancelled, let's push for Ambiga to be appointed Chairman of the SPR. No one can do a better job than she.

This is the best solution. Lets put this idea out. I propose that the new EC will only report to Parliment and the King only.

Bastard frog Ibrahim raps Ambiga for ‘ultimatum’ over King’s advice

Datuk Ibrahim Ali today accused Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenavasan of being disrespectful to the King for purportedly issuing an “ultimatum” that she would only call off the rally if she was granted a royal audience.

The Perkasa president also urged the King not to entertain to Ambiga’s request, saying it would set a precedent that future rally organisers would use in order to seek an audience.

“Like us, we have never been given the opportunity to meet with the King, only to send memorandums. But we do not threaten the government because of it.

“I could use these issues — Malay sentiment, scholarship issues — I could turn it emotional but we do not because we love our country and we do things through resolutions, our congress and by submitting memorandums,” he said.

Ibrahim then repeated his claim that royal assent to Ambiga’s request would encourage others to follow suit in future.

“Like if I say I want to hold a demonstration next week. Then the King says not to do it and then we tell him, ‘okay, we will cancel it but we must meet first.’ That is not right,” he said.

The Pasir Mas MP told Ambiga that if she was “principled and cultured enough as a learned solicitor”, she should first call off Bersih’s rally and wait until the situation calmed before requesting to meet with the King.

“It is uncalled for and it is very rude of her. We urge the King not to agree to meet with her until she calls off the rally,” he said.

Earlier, Ibrahim also announced that Perkasa was ready to cancel its rally out of respect to the King, but would proceed if Bersih does so.

In an unprecedented move yesterday, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin stepped in to diffuse tension by advising the Najib administration and Bersih 2.0 to hold consultations over the issue of free and fair elections.

The constitutional monarch rarely issues edicts or statements but the heightened atmosphere over the past week has prompted Istana Negara’s intervention.

In an immediate response to the development, Ambiga chaired an emergency meeting of the Bersih 2.0’s steering committee last night, where it was decided that the group would abide by the King’s advice.

Speaking at a press conference this afternoon, the former Bar Council president announced that she would seek an audience with the King before Saturday and would be willing to call off the July 9 rally.


If Ibrahim Ali truly respect the Agung, then he would call of his rally. Instead, he places condition as well. So, how is he different from Ambiga? In fact, he is worst. He pretends to respect the Agung, yet he publicly defies him.
Ambiga seeks to deliver Bersih's petition. If the petition is delivered, the rally is no longer necessary. Bersih has been consistent in their position all along.

Ban BERSIH a UMNOPORNO trick to maintain illegal power

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin dismissed today the legitimacy of the Bersih rally, and continued to portray the movement for clean and fair elections as a tool by the Opposition to topple the government.

The government outlawed the electoral reform coalition yesterday, a week before its planned rally on July 9.

“They instigate the people to go to the streets apparently to fight for clean and fair elections.

“They don’t even respect the majority mandate, but chose street democracy as a way to wrest power,” he said during his opening speech at the Federal Territory Barisan Nasional (BN) 2011 Convention here at the Berjaya Times Square Hotel.

The Federal Territory BN chairman claimed that the Bersih 2.0 rally on July 9 is a ruse by the Opposition to gain power that the ruling coalition has exposed.

“They know the people’s increasing support for Barisan Nasional, and that a democratic election will not guarantee their win.

“So, Barisan Nasional component parties do not need to dance to their beat,” he said.

Muhyiddin agreed that the Federal Constitution guarantees the freedom to have peaceful assemblies but added that “we didn’t think the people would be tricked.”

“The people have to know their true intention is not to have a peaceful assembly but to create chaos with the intention for bringing down the government elected by the people through a democratic election,” he warned.

He claimed that even when BN has lost during elections, its component parties have never broken any rules of the game.

“We have never taken to the streets or accused the election system of being unfair and dirty. In fact, we recognise the state governments set up by Opposition parties.

“If their accusations that the elections in this country are unfair and dirty, it is impossible for Opposition parties to win so many seats, and gain control over several states. Of course, the Barisan Nasional government’s supposedly cruel and unfair approach means it will use all the power it has to ensure every single Opposition candidate loses in every seat contested,” he said.

During the political tsunami of 2008, opposition parties took 82 seats in the Parliament, compared to 20 seats in the last election, which was held in 2004.

Five of the 13 state legislatures also fell to opposition control.


quote : " They know the people’s increasing support for Barisan Nasional, and that a democratic election will not guarantee their win.

Wow.. where did you learn reverse psychology? I'm sure your mouth said that but your brain was thinking

"They know the people’s DECREASING support for Barisan Nasional, and that a democratic election will mean the end of UMNO power"

The DPM is admitting that Bersih will change the fortunes for UMNO. A fair and transparent election will mean the demise of UMNO. And that future means the end of the gravy train for the UMNO cronies and the prosecution of the wrongdoers, of which there are probably hundreds of thousands.

A Malaysia of developed status can only be achieved when the corrupt are prosecuted.

characteristics of communist countries.....Bakri MP, 5 others held over yellow gotong-royong T-shirts

Bakri MP Er Teck Hwa second right and five other Johor DAP leaders at Taman Pelangi market this morning.

Six DAP members, including Bakri MP Er Teck Hwa, were hauled up by the police this morning during a gotong-royong exercise, on suspicion that it was part of the now-outlawed Bersih 2.0’s activities.

The six, wearing yellow T-shirts bearing designs different from that of the Bersih 2.0 logo, were picked up at the Taman Pelangi market as they were distributing leaflets to the public.

Despite trying to explain to the cops that their walkabout this morning was part of a community cleanliness campaign themed “Negara Bersih, Rakyat Bertuah”, they were still hauled up to the Taman Pelangi police station.

Er managed to post an update on his Facebook profile page, writing, “BN (Barisan Nasional) government should make new announcement — cleaning street campaign is prohibited in Malaysia.”

He claimed the cops had told them that if they had not invited the media to cover their arrests, they would have been freed immediately.

The six were later led to the Sentral police station for questioning. They are being represented by PKR lawyer Hassan Karim.

“PKR lawyer Hassan Karim is now dealing with police. Lawyer said they might be charged under sedition act but dont not know yet,” Er wrote on Facebook at about 1.30pm.

The six include Er, Johor DAP Socialist Youth (DAPSY) chief Tan Hong Pin, Johor DAPSY vice chief Jason Josob, Johor DAP committee member Chen Kah Eng, Taman Bukit Indah DAP branch secretary Yan Boon Meng and Johor DAP assistant political education director Tang Chee Kia.

Police have arrested more than 100 people over the Bersih rally and have detained six under the Emergency Ordinance for 60 days.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein has outlawed both Bersih 2.0 and the movement’s yellow T-shirts, saying it is related to illegal activities.

But Bersih has vowed to go ahead with its planned July 9 rally asking for free and fair elections.


The height of paranoia by the Home Minister....when was this law of wearing yellow being gazetted at the parliament being illegal? Bersih should change to all other colors as well so as all the Primary Colors being gazetted illegal as well...& Malaysians can only wear BLACK or WHITE apparels....mind boggling democracy isn't it??

are they going to arrest spongebob, bumble bee and the digi man too?? after all they're all yellow. this is bloody ridiculous, arresting people for wearing shirts

I haven't seen anything more ridiculous but then again, corrupted officials are everywhere and the home of corruption is JB so I'm not surprised at this paranoia-based arrest.

This country is becoming a war zone thanks to friggin' BE-END and their corrupted, brainless politicians.
