This bastard try to tells Selangor folk to reject ‘unreliable’ Pakatan

Najib said only BN can provide a future full of hope for the people of Selangor.

Datuk Seri Najib Razak continued to heap pressure on the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat (PR) administration ahead of impending polls, saying the federal opposition is “unreliable” in government.

The prime minister pledged his Barisan Nasional’s (BN) unconditional support for the rural community here, saying that unlike PR his administration would not make any empty promises.

The BN chief had said earlier today the pact would target a 14-0 victory at federal polls that must be called within a year in the 13 states as well as the federal territories.
This followed the Umno president’s claim last night that PKR, which controls Selangor, was in crisis after a spate of internal conflicts, and called on voters to pick a party that “can determine the continuation of stability and confidence.”

“The opposition has three bad qualities. They have never fulfilled their promises, it is all political promises.

“They do not value a good deed, they also do not feel the need to pay their debts,” the prime minister told a 5,000-strong crowd here.

“If we die without paying out debts, our souls will be tortured (in the afterlife),” said Najib, ostensibly referring to PR’s stand on student loans under the National Higher Education Fund (PTPTN).

“That is why the opposition cannot be relied upon and only Barisan Nasional can provide a future full of hope for the people of Selangor,” he added.

Among a slew of announcements made by Najib today included a RM2.6 million allocation for Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Pulau Carey and a promise to look into acquiring land for the Indian community to build their homes here.

The Pekan MP has previously said BN was ready to win the next general election as well as take back Selangor, and that public feedback has been encouraging.

He said people have been telling him BN has regained public support since the 2008 polls.

The PM has said BN must win back Selangor, a key state due to its industrial and natural resources, “at all costs.”

But Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim has maintained that state reserves have improved tremendously under PR and it was currently at RM1.9 billion.

The Ijok assemblyman has also pointed out Selangor contributes 22 per cent of the country’s gross domestic income and that the state’s successes were partly due to PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who is the state economic adviser.

But he was forced today to deny that his government was in crisis, saying a spate of conflicts between the PKR-led state administration and leaders from the party were due to “normal” differences of opinion in politics.

The Bandar Tun Razak MP’s remarks come following PKR chief strategist Rafizi Ramli’s resignation as chief executive of the Selangor economic adviser’s office as well as recent calls from within PKR for the Khalid’s political secretary Faekah Husin to leave her post.

There was speculation that Rafizi’s decision had come about due to a rift between him and Khalid over a free education project in the state and also factionalism within the Selangor PKR leadership.

The post of economic adviser to the Selangor government is held by Opposition Leader Anwar.

The post for Anwar was created in 2009, just months after Selangor PKR chief Azmin Ali criticised Khalid’s administration and called for a reshuffle of the state executive council.

Rafizi has denied that there were political considerations behind his resignation.

Khalid also defended his embattled political secretary Faekah, saying the controversy surrounding her issuing a support letter was a “non-issue”.

Faekah had allegedly written to a Selangor GLC (government-linked-company) director to recommend a law firm belonging to her relative for appointment on the GLC’s legal panel.

The letter was purportedly issued with the letterhead of the Selangor mentri besar’s office.

This was revealed this week by an anti-Faekah faction within PKR, which has demanded she step down as Khalid’s political secretary.

“It is not a recommendation letter. The issue of a support does not arise, even I am used to writing these letters,” Khalid said today.






FOR ONCE PM IS CORRECT FOR HE IS ECHOING HIS OWN BN/UMNO'S MANTRA = Najib tells Selangor folks to reject ‘unreliable’ UMNO/BN

Stung by scorpions, milked by the cows and exposed to radiation. These are only some of the results of Najib's very "reliable" and caring government.

Haj polls unIslamic

The Prime Minister should not hold general elections during the Haj pilgrimage season, saying that such a move would make him a traitor to Islam.

Yesterday, Datuk Seri Najib Razak was reported as not discounting the possibility of polls during the period for Muslims’ pilgrimage, saying that it had been done during Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s tenure as prime minister.

If Datuk Seri Najib holds the elections during the Haj season, he is a traitor to Islam and Muslims,..

Polls during Haj would “deny the rights of the 30,000 Muslims in Malaysia that go for the pilgrimage.”

Both voting and the Haj pilgrimage are important to Muslims, while stressing that 30,000 voters can greatly affect elections outcome.

The last general elections show an ADUN (state assemblyman) can win with less than 100 votes (margin), while a Parliment seat can be won or lost by a few hundred votes.”

Voting is a fundamental human right, and asked “why purposely hold elections during the Haj season? It can’t possibly be that it’s the only reasonable time in five years to do so.”

Najib told reporters yesterday: “In (the country’s) history, elections have been conducted during Haj... in 1986 elections happened during Haj, during the tenure of [Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad].”

The PM was asked to respond to PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu’s remarks demanding he not call for election until after the Haj season. The Haj begins October 26.

“Only God decides on sins and blessings. We are not stopping anyone... if you want to go for Haj, go,” added Najib, who went for the pilgrimage last year.

Sources have said, however, that the Haj pilgrimage on October 26 and Barisan Nasional’s (BN) efforts to court the youth and Chinese vote could delay the general election to November.




Najib should come out and state outright that there will be no elections during the haj.! Otherwise, everyone can safely assume that he stoops to anything to remain in power.

Haji Najib Big liar ....Not impossible to have polls during Haj, says Najib


Datuk Seri Najib Razak has not discounted the possibly of having a general election during the Haj pilgrimage season, saying today it has been done before.

“In (the country’s) history, elections have been conducted during Haj... in 1986 elections happened during Haj, during the tenure of [Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad],” Najib told reporters today.

The PM was asked to respond to PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu’s remarks demanding he not call for election until after the Haj season. The Haj begins October 26.

“Only God decides on sins and blessings. We are not stopping anyone... if you want to go for Haj, go,” added Najib, who went for the pilgrimage last year.

Sources have said, however, that the Haj pilgrimage on October 26 and Barisan Nasional’s (BN) efforts to court the youth and Chinese vote could delay the general election to November.

The Malaysian Insider had reported on May 28 of a possible September general election but Najib’s announcement that Budget 2013 will be tabled on September 28 has pushed party strategists to look at a later date to ensure Budget goodies get to the ground also.

Election Commission (EC) sources say the commission is ready for polls but has yet to get any indication of snap polls for the 222 federal seats and 505 state seats, except the Sarawak state assembly which was elected last year.

Officials familiar with BN strategies say Najib wants the ruling coalition to win back urban seats lost when the mainly urban Chinese voted in favour of the opposition in Election 2008.

The prime minister’s approval rating among the Chinese and Indian communities has slipped following the April 28 Bersih 3.0 rally, said pollster Merdeka Center but its latest survey showed Najib’s rating at 65 per cent, a drop of four percentage points from an earlier survey. Former Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s approval rating was 71 per cent when he called snap polls in March 2008.

BN coalition sources say several recent surveys show BN needs to work harder to achieve a convincing victory, especially with some 2.2 million voters casting ballots for the first time. The next general election is only due after April 2013 when BN’s mandate expires.

It is understood a compilation of surveys revealed that BN could win up to 146 parliamentary seats with at least 80 convincing wins, more than the 140 won in Election 2008.

The source said additional surveys will be conducted in this month and BN strategists will compile and assess the results during the Ramadan and Syawal months.

Sources had told The Malaysian Insider that a July election was a possibility as election materials have been imported and are in warehouses waiting to be distributed. Several Umno divisions have also begun putting up flags in the capital city and across the country, prompting speculation of snap polls. The coalition controls 138 out of the 222 seats in the Dewan Rakyat and all states except for four, which are ruled by rival Pakatan Rakyat (PR).

The Najib administration has focused on various demographics but a proposal to abolish a federal education fund by PR could cause support to sway among the youth, a key component of the electorate and comprising at least 20 per cent of the 12 million-strong electoral list. Nearly 60 per cent of new voters are Malays, the dominant community in the country.

The Bersih 3.0 rally asking for the electoral list to be cleaned up has also cut some support for the government as nearly 200,000 people had a sit-in in Kuala Lumpur together with thousands of others in cities and towns across both Malaysia and the world.

Najib had on May 4 brushed off speculation that polls may be delayed following the Bersih 3.0 fracas, saying the date would be decided based on how the people view the government. “The date of the election is not contingent upon all this,” he said then.

“Well, it’s up to the public to decide. We will decide on the basis of how the people view the government, you see,” Najib added.

Bersih, a coalition of 84 groups, has disputed the EC electoral roll and has called for a clean and fair election during its three rallies beginning 2007, the last taking place on April 28 where tens of thousands turned up for a peaceful sit-in. It was marred by violence when several protestors breached barricades around Dataran Merdeka which the authorities had closed to the public following a court order.

The Najib administration responded after Bersih 2.0 last July with the formation of a parliamentary select committee (PSC) that made 22 electoral recommendations but Bersih still insists the electoral roll has not been cleaned up.





Najib , stop poncing about. !! Just name the date for the elections. Haj or no haj , it will a one way ticket for you and your beloved Barisan

As quickily as you can. You might be in French jail if you delay too long.

If very few or none of their BN politicians are going to the Haj this year, that will be the sign that he may call GE 13 during the Haj. His WINNABLE? candidates will know.

PM bluff....Lynas plant safety beyond doubt


“Scientific facts” have proven that the Lynas Corp rare earth refinery in Gebeng will be safe, the prime minister said today.

Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the public must make an informed decision regarding the safety of the rare earth refinery and not be swayed by “imaginary fears.”

“Based on scientific facts, there is nothing that can raise doubts as to the safety of the public or the environment,” Najib told reporters after chairing the Umno supreme council meeting here.

PM Najib pointed out that even PAS lawmaker Dr Che Rosli had broken ranks with his Pakatan Rakyat colleagues and agreed that the Lynas plant did not pose a threat to the general public.

But the Hulu Langat MP has denied this, and repeatedly stated he never said the Lynas plant was safe.

The nuclear scientist said earlier this week that although he agreed the radiation levels at the refinery would be low, this did not mean Lynas’s operations would not threaten the health of the Gebeng folk.

Che Rosli had also said the government should not give Lynas a temporary operating licence (TOL) yet.

The Australian miner has cleared probably its final major hurdle to getting its TOL after a parliamentary select committee (PSC) called for the licence to be issued as “scientific facts” show that the controversial Kuantan plant is safe.

The positive feedback tabled in the PSC report came just four days after the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry (Mosti) dismissed an appeal against the facility by residents living nearby and instead imposed two conditions that Lynas said it will have no problems satisfying.
However, residents who filed the appeal to Mosti have said they will challenge the minister’s decision in court, calling the conditions “flimsy” and “not specific enough and will in no way safeguard or appease the fears of residents living in the area.”

The parliamentary committee on Lynas was approved in the Dewan Rakyat in March amid opposition furore over the alleged lack of terms of reference and suspicion that the nine-man panel would be used to “whitewash” the issue.

Pakatan Rakyat lawmakers also questioned the point of the select committee given that Najib had already said the government will not be bound by the panel’s findings.

Lynas had said last month that it was on track to start up what it says will be the world’s largest rare earth plant within weeks after Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin, chairman of the parliamentary committee, called it “the safest rare earth plant in the world.”

It also said in April that delays in obtaining the licence for its facility, which was initially approved in January, may have “very serious consequences” for the RM80 billion worth of rare earth orders already received as it is “sold out for the next 10 years.”

Anti-Lynas lobby Himpunan Hijau warned Lynas Corp and the government yesterday of “wave after wave” of protests against the impending issuance of a temporary operating licence (TOL) for the Australian miner’s rare earth plant, beginning with a day-long assembly this weekend.

Himpunan Hijau plans to end its 24-hour protest this weekend by marching up to Lynas’s Gebeng plant on Sunday morning after a night of speeches called “rising flame of anger, turn Lynas to Ash.”





Mr PM, what happen to your slogan "Rakyat di dahulukan"... Rakyat doesnt want this project to go on.. why dont you listen & trying to push your way through.. The more you try, the more we doubt...

We shall see...famous last words, especially when Lynas is in it only for the money!

Then please explain why practically every country in the world except China with large tracts of wasteland because of this industry , does not want it except clever Malaysia if it is safe? 

You think others do not want to earn money from the huge sales? 

Even Australia refused to provide them the licence with their country so very big and many areas uninhabited. Please explain. Do not publicly declare just basing of biased reports.

If so safe and profitable. We should set another Lynas plant in putrajaya next to PM residence.

and  We already have the best democracy in the world,the best education,better than the UK and the US and now we have the safest rare earth plant in the world!Betul-betul boleh Malaysia!And of course,this is all based on 'facts',scientific or otherwise according to UMNO.

dont pay to kuala lumpur city UMNO dog....Food, trees, overtime top City Hall’s claims from Bersih

The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) wants electoral watchdog group Bersih to pay for its officers’ meals and overtime claims on top of damaged trees and barricades used to block off demonstrators from taking part in the April 28 peaceful sit-down protest at Dataran Merdeka.

These were among the compensation charges totalling RM351,203.45 the local authority had demanded in an official letter sent out yesterday to Bersih chief Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan and steering committee member, Maria Chin Abdullah.

“Due to the Bersih 3.0 assembly, the Mayor had incurred the following losses, to which you are responsible as the organizers of the assembly,” the letter of demand dated June 18 said.
A digital copy of the letter, signed by DBKL director-general Datuk Salleh Yusup, was made available

Top of the list was the RM57,850 demand for landscape and recreation damages, including to trees DBKL valued at RM16,702.50.

DBKL priced the iron barricades used to block off public access to the historic square on the rally day at RM19,654 and listed RM5,900 as the damages to its signboards and other barriers.

It also demanded RM174,240 for its enforcement officers’ overtime allowance; RM45,000 to feed them; and RM5,000 for their transport.

The remaining RM26,856.95 of the “losses” it is seeking to recoup cover transport charges and allowances for workers from its mechanical and electrical engineering department.
DBKL warned Bersih to pay the full amount, including a RM100 fee for the cost of the notice, within 14 days of the letter or be sued in court.

Ambiga confirmed she had received the letter of demand yesterday morning and has referred it to her lawyers for the next course of action.

“Even though you were not allowed by the KL Mayor [and] police to organise the Bersih 3.0 rally in Dataran Merdeka, and even though there was a court order dated April 26... (both of you) still went ahead with the rally on April 28, which went out of control and caused chaos and destruction of public
property,” said the letter.

The DBKL demand comes just weeks after Putrajaya initiated an unprecedented civil lawsuit to claim RM122,000 in damages from the group that has been lobbying for electoral reform ahead of the 13th general elections since last year.
Bersih had mounted a similar rally at Stadium Merdeka in the national capital on July 9 last year amid a city-wide lockdown but no court action was taken against them.
Legal observers are questioning the government’s use of the recently-enforced law allowing peaceful assemblies to clamp down on dissent.

Tens of thousands had thronged the federal capital city’s streets on April 28 for the election watchdog’s third rally for free and fair elections.

The opposition-backed protest had kicked off peacefully but turned chaotic shortly after 3pm when several protesters breached the three-tiered barricades surrounding the historic Dataran Merdeka, which had been blocked off to them via a court order obtained by the police.

A parliamentary reply later said the police fired a total of 967 tear gas canisters and grenades at the crowd, which the Information Ministry estimated to be 22,270 according to pictures taken by state news agency Bernama.


The KL rate-payers should have a Class Action Suit against DBKL for:

1) Poor Road Maintenance & creating traffic jams all over KL
2) Dirty Enviroment
3) Poor drainage thus causing flash floods
4) Not providing KL ratepayers "facilities" eg proper parking, etc during Bersih action day
5) Employing CLOWNS
6) Denying KL ratepayers access to public areas
7) Allowing companies like McDonalds to hold events in Dataran Merdeka but not its own rate payers
8) Rude Staff who behave like bullies towards KL ratepayers.
9) Poor overall service to ratepayers.

DBKL also did not provide another dataran rakyat for rakyat to peacefully sit in since dataran merdeka is not allowed by them. So failed to provide sufficient amenities for public. Bill them for one piece cost of dataran pls.

I think this is the only country in the world that dared to sue its citizen for organizing a demonstration and claim damages. I really salute Malaysians for taking this in a courteous manner for if this happens elsewhere I think the capital city would have burnt to the ground

Until 3pm, Bersih 3.0 was jolly party, until the Police started shooting and ramming. If you need to pin down the cause, it is the police. DBKL should direct the bill to police.

Classic tactic - if you can't stop anybody who opposes the Government, try to bankrupt them.

They should ask those who instructed them to work and to put up the barricades to pay for the bills la. I wonder who?

So the police is going to sue next? For Bersih to pay for their overtime, food etc?
I think everything would have been peaceful if Bersih supporters were allowed into Dataran Merdeka.

one malaysia clean sweep...cronies in priority...people were brutalized....MACC completes probe into alleged RM40m money laundering linked to Musa Aman

Graftbusters have completed investigations into alleged money laundering by Sabah timber tycoon Michael Chia linked to the state’s Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said in a written reply to a parliamentary question by Batu MP Chua Tian Chang yesterday that the case has been passed on to the Attorney-General’s Chambers for consideration.

“The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has conducted investigations into the Michael Chia case which is linked to the Sabah chief minister.

“It has been completed and presented to the AGC for study and a decision,” he said, adding that the anti-graft body received full co-operation from its counterparts in Hong Kong.

Musa (picture) had denied in April corruption allegations linking him to a RM400 million timber graft scandal as exposed by whistleblower site Sarawak Report.

The Umno leader also denied any link with Chia, who was arrested and charged with money laundering after attempting to smuggle S$16 million (RM40 million) back to Malaysia in 2008.

According to media reports, Chia had allegedly told the Hong Kong authorities that the money belonged to Musa.

“I deny all these allegations. I wish to put it on record once again that I have no business association whatsoever with an individual named Michael Chia,” the usually media-shy Musa had said in a statement.

Musa instead accused Sarawak Report of defaming him, claiming the graft allegations were likely part of a conspiracy by his detractors who wanted to topple Barisan Nasional (BN) in the east Malaysian state.

He said he would offer full co-operation to the authorities if he was required to but stressed that in the meantime, his focus was on serving the state instead of “entertaining these frivolous allegations”.

Sarawak Report had claimed in April to be in possession of documents showing Musa and his brother, Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman, were linked to a multimillion-ringgit timber graft scandal.

PKR leaders then moved to claim the same, saying the MACC had already recommended a court case against the duo but this was allegedly blocked by the A-G’s Chambers.

PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli and deputy secretary-general Darell Leiking also issued a one-week deadline to the BN government to order both Musa and Anifah to take temporary leave from their duties and a suspension on A-G Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, who has also been linked to numerous other scandals.

Chua, who is PKR vice-president and the party’s Subang MP R. Sivarasa also told a press conference today that as the government had confirmed the probe was passed on to Abdul Gani, the delay in bringing the case to court showed the country’s top lawyer was burying the issue.







Chia siad the money belong to Musa, Musa said no, he doesn't know Chia. So no case, UMNO sapu all the money. That why this this investigation, you don't see people dropping from MACC building.

Sometime they charge for the sake of charging BUT not wanting to win the case. This is just to show to the public that the govt. does take action.So when they go to trial, they suppress all the evidence and don't reveal in court. So the case is weakened and the sitting judge is in no position to comment. The result , the case is lost and suspect found not guilty. Remember Razak Baginda's case. There is not even an appeal from the AG. Kangaroo Court the say.

Are Set Fixed five year term fair...????

Cabinet minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz wants to push for a fixed five-year mandate for those elected in a general election, saying it was fairer if prime ministers and chief ministers knew they would govern for a fixed period.
Several dates have been mooted over the past two years as potential polls dates for Datuk Seri Najib Razak to gain his own mandate after taking over from Tun Abdullah Badawi in 2009, leading to concerns in the economy over uncertainty in policymaking.

"Personally, I agree that five years means five years, so that when we go to polls, the mentris besar and prime minister know that they will sit in there for five years. I would like to be the catalyst to bring this principle to Malaysia. It is fairer," the de facto law minister (picture) told Parliament today.

The minister in the prime minister's department said this when winding up debate on the supplementary supply bill after opposition lawmakers raised concerns from the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) over delays in calling for federal polls.

FMM president Tan Sri Yong Poh Kon said a week ago that constant speculation over election dates "have created a certain amount of uncertainty" in the industry.

The Malaysian Insider had reported on May 28 of a possible September general election but the prime minister's announcement that Budget 2013 will be tabled on September 28 has pushed party strategists to look at a further date to also ensure budget goodies get to the ground.

Surveys and analysis conducted internally by Pakatan Rakyat (PR) show it can win over 100 federal seats if polls are called soon but the federal opposition expects the budget to be a “game-changer” that could dampen any potential gains.

The Malaysian Insider understands that a compilation of projections by the opposition pact’s three components largely match the consensus of Barisan Nasional (BN) intelligence which sees the ruling coalition assured of 80 seats with up to a further 50 wins likely.

“The analyses from both sides match very closely. The only big difference is we are more optimistic in Johor, Sabah and Sarawak which can yield us another 20 seats,” a top PR strategist told ..

Although the BN surveys show it could place up to 146 lawmakers in Parliament, just two short of a two-thirds supermajority, sources say this prognosis came immediately after the RM500 cash handouts to low-income families under the Bantuan Rakyat 1 Malaysia (BR1M) scheme.

A more recent survey by the Special Branch said the ruling pact could only win up to 118 federal seats, prompting BN strategists to seek a delay in the polls.

The prime minister’s approval ratings shot up to 69 per cent immediately after the RM2.6 billion in cash was disbursed but dipped last month after violent clashes between police and protestors at the April 28 Bersih rally for free and fair elections.

Najib is unlikely to hold the general election due by mid-2013 unless he is confident of improving on BN’s tally of 140 MPs from March 2008 over even regaining the coalition's customary two-thirds supermajority in Parliament.

He took over as PM a year later, ostensibly to improve on the coalition’s worst-ever electoral performance.

The BN chief recently said he will announce next year’s budget on September 28, expected to include a repeat of BR1M, which the Umno president has admitted is on the cards.

Also reported last week that BN MPs were handed RM1.5 million to plough into their constituencies in Monday’s pre-council meeting for the current parliamentary sitting.






When you have a FAILED & OPPRESSIVE government like now, 2 years is already too long. A shorter term is good to put the government in check, so that they are always mindful of the possibility losing power. Their corrupted ways will soon be unravelled and they will be punished. For Malaysia, the shorter the better if BN is one of the major coalition because they HAVE MANY CROOKS there as we have seen!!

Since the opposition controls many states, the BN is feeling the pinch. Now the feel it is fairer for a 5 years term after being in power for 50 over odd years especially when they probably feel that they might lose this time around. 

So BN has been unfair to everyone all these while. Why only now we are changing?

Najib cannot call for elections now! 

The only way Najib can remain PM is not to call for elections! 

The man is dumb but not that dumb!

just a drama to save UMNO...Dr Ling fails in bid to recuse judge


Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik today failed to recuse High Court judge Ahmadi Asnawi from hearing his cheating trial, after the latter ruled that there was no basis to justify the former MCA president's application.
Dr Ling had on Tuesday applied to recuse Ahmadi from his Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) cheating trial, on grounds the latter had allegedly shown bias in ordering his defence to be entered in the trial.

Today Ahmad defended his comments made during the ruling, dismissing Dr Ling's claims that he had shown "apparent bias."

"The comments did not affect the course of a fair trial. It does not mean the defence cannot rebut the statements.

"The application is hereby dismissed as there is no merit," said Ahmadi.

"I have scrutinised the submission from both parties and felt the comments made cannot be seen as an exaggeration as it was based on finding of facts and on testimony during the examination-in-chief and during cross-examination,” the judge added.

Dr Ling's lawyer Wong Kian Kheong had earlier today argued that Ahmadi's comments were "not essential and irrelevant", and that the "strong language" used by the judge carried a "real danger of bias."

Wong said Ahmadi's remarks were made as if there was an "absolute and definite" conclusion made in respect of Dr Ling's guilt even before calling for the former Transport Minister's defence.

Another contention, said Wong was the fact that Ahmadi had concluded that Dr Ling had "deceived" Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed without summoning the former prime minister to testify in the trial.
“There is a reasonable apprehension of bias that my lord has already pre-decided my client’s guilt before the defence evidence was adduced,” Wong said.

But the lawyer stressed he was not questioning Ahmadi's integrity as a judge, but was concerned over the perception of a danger of bias.

The prosecution, in reply said that there was nothing said by Ahmadi which could even be "remotely" categorised as having any real danger of bias.

Deputy public prosecutor Manoj Kurup said the judge had made a thorough examination of the witnesses including evidence elicited during cross-examination before ruling for Dr Ling's defence to be called.

"The irony is that had Your Lordship not provided any such written grounds, an application of this nature would not have even arisen.

"Then the complaint would most likely been that the accused is unable to full prepare his defence because no reasons were given for calling his defence," said DPP Manoj.

The trial will resume on July 13.

Dr Ling was charged in July last year with knowingly deceiving the Cabinet into approving land purchase for the PKFZ, which resulted in wrongful losses for the government.

The charge, under section 418 of the Penal Code, carries a penalty of up to seven years in jail, or a fine or both.

The former MCA president also faces two alternative charges of deceiving the Cabinet into believing that the terms of purchase — at RM25 psf and 7.5 per cent interest — were acknowledged and agreed to by Valuation and Property Services Department (JPPH) despite knowing that there was no such agreement.

The alternative charges carry a lighter sentence of five years in jail, or a fine, or both






Somebody used to be known as "rotten fish head" during his heydays when he was in power. This is the big fish of PKFZ scandal catch. If even a "rotten fish head" can be allowed to swim free evading prosecution despite all the show of seriousness being put on to rein it in, there really is no more hope for this pipe dream called justice.

try to spin the true story by 1 malaysia mafia family..???? ....Daniyar Nazarbayev now in Sandhurst, despite doubts over academic background

Daniyar Nazarbayev has enrolled in the famed Sandhurst Military College since last year, despite doubts over Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s future son-in-law’s academic qualifications to enter Columbia University in the United States previously.

In understand from family sources that the 24-year-old Kazakh is in the commissioning course for regular army officers which takes 48 weeks.
“Daniyar is in Sandhurst now. They accepted him last year,” a source told .

According to the college’s website, the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in Surrey is where “all officers in the British Army are trained to take on the responsibilities of leading soldiers.”
“More than 80 per cent of Officer Cadets are university graduates, but some arrive with A-Levels or equivalent. Others are serving soldiers who have been selected for Officer training and some come from overseas, having been chosen by their own armies to train at the world famous Academy.
“It is not possible for anyone to undertake training at their own private expense,” the website said.

Daniyar’s mother, Maira had denied allegations yesterday that she and her son are being sued by her multi-millionaire husband, and has maintained that her marriage is still intact.
She also said her son’s engagement to Najib’s daughter is still on despite the flurry of allegations which has surfaced from court documents filed by her estranged husband in a New York court.

On Tuesday, several foreign newspapers including the New York Post reported that Daniyar was being sued together with his mother for cheating his stepfather Bolat Nazarbayez, brother to Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev. He also allegedly fudged his academic qualifications to get into Columbia University in the United States.

Daniyar was engaged to Najib’s daughter Nooryana Najwa in a glittering ceremony here in June last year.

“There’s never been a day when I’ve had a fight with my husband,” Maira Nazarbayev told the New York Post in an interview published on Friday.

“I consider myself married and in a good relationship with my husband. And I’ve never seen a document related to divorce. I’ve never signed anything nor have I received anything,” she added.

The New York Post had cited court papers filed by Bolat Nazarbayez in New York, accusing Daniyar of cheating the former out of a US$20 million (RM63 million) condominium home on Wall Street besides landing in the top-rated university using “fraudulent and fabricated” paperwork from a high school in Kazakhstan he did not attend.

Daniyar, who is said to have met Nooryana in Columbia, graduated from the Ivy League institution in 2010.

The daily also reported that Maira had changed Daniyar’s surname from Kesikbayev to Nazarbayev to match the Kazakh president’s after marrying Bolat in 2001.

Maira said Bolat was “in shock” to learn about the lawsuit when she spoke to him on the phone a few weeks ago, and that he had indicated he had not authorised any court action to be taken against her or Daniyar.

She also denied allegations that Daniyar was a high school dropout and had cheated to get into Columbia University, saying that it was all fabrications and lies.
Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs had dismissed as unrelated to Najib’s leadership allegations the coalition chief’s future son-in-law cheated his stepfather out of a RM63 million home and lied to gain entrance into Columbia University.

Lawmakers from the ruling coalition had told The Malaysian Insider earlier this week the issue was a “private matter” and would not affect the Umno president’s ability to govern.

This is not the first time Najib’s ties with Kazakhstan have come under the spotlight. Indonesia’s top newspaper Kompas had alleged in August last year that Najib’s future son-in-law’s mother had links to the Russian mafia.

“Maira Nazarbayev, who lives a lifestyle a la Imelda Marcos, supposedly has links to the Russian mafia,” the paper had said in a column published on August 4, 2011.

However, the newspaper did not substantiate its claims. Najib denied the allegation and the newspaper has also apologised for the article.
Maira also said in the statement that the family has a pre-planned vacation in Europe over the next few weeks and she will “spend this quiet time with my family and loved ones.”


The only person with enough clout to get the con artist into Sandhurst would be the future father in law, the PM of Malaysia. I wonder if Pakatan takes over next year can we get the new Pakatan Defence Minister to do a check ....

but what so great about Sandhurst Military College ..

It it just like another college in recession-prone Britain which struggle to survive by taking anybody who afford the expensive cost of study ....
This even makes Sandhurst College looks BAD as they take a young lad who forge his academic qualification

minister rapist talking cock.....Rais urges people to keep promise to remain united with 1 malaysia robbers and pirates...!!!


Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim tonight urged the people, especially Sabahans, to make the habit of keeping promises as a step towards maintaining the close relationship and unity among the races in line with the 1 Malaysia concept.

He said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, at every Cabinet meeting, emphasised the need to keep promises.

“Keeping promises” would also be the theme of this year’s 55th National Day celebration and Malaysia Day on September 16, Rais (picture) said at the Tadau Kaamatan Malaysia open house held at the Keningau Sports Complex here.

The function was also attended by Najib and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

Rais said the various festivals celebrated in Sabah, Sarawak and the peninsula could strengthen national unity in line with the aspirations of the 1 Malaysia concept.

He believed that through arts, culture and the 1 Malaysia concept, the Barisan Nasional (BN) government could achieve success through the various festivals celebrated by the various races in the country.

Meanwhile, Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan, who is also the paramount leader of the Kadazandusun community, thanked the federal government, especially the Information, Communications and Culture Ministry, for choosing a remote area to hold the open house.

“This shows that the current government truly practises the 1 Malaysia concept,” he added.

He also urged the people of Sabah to continue supporting the government under Najib’s leadership who has proven capable of protecting the people, regardless of their race and religion. 

Irresponsible BN driving Malaysia deeper into debt


Barisan Nasional (BN) in commented today for plunging Malaysia deeper into debt, saying that Putrajaya’s added spending of a whopping RM13.8 billion would blow the lid off the country’s budget deficit for 2012.

Describing this as irresponsible fiscal spending by the ruling pact,  the extra expenses would place Malaysia’s budget deficit at a high of RM59.7 billion, the country’s highest to date.

This would easily put Malaysia’s deficit as a percentage of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at more than 6 per cent in 2012, which is significantly higher than the initially projected 4.7 per cent, especially if the widely anticipated worldwide economic slowdown hits Malaysia...

We also warned that the added expenses would see government debt soar drastically beyond RM500 billion by year-end. As of the first quarter of this year, government debt stood at RM470 billion.

This,  was before factoring in “contingent liabilities”, which  described as loans to be settled by taxpayers if companies like Malaysia Airlines (MAS) have to be bailed out.Estimates of these contingent liabilities at the end of 2011 stand at RM110 billion.

If contingent liabilities are added to official government debt, our debt-to-GDP ratio would stand at over 65 per cent at the end of 2012, which is well above the statutory limit of 55 per cent debt-to-GDP ratio...

On Thursday, Putrajaya tabled a supplementary supply Bill asking for RM13.8 billion more to spend this year, further fuelling fears that the Najib administration would not be able to rein in the deficit and breach the statutory debt ceiling.

The Bill, tabled in the Dewan Rakyat by the Finance Ministry, which Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak heads, allocates RM360 million to the Election Commission, RM113 million to the Prime Minister’s Department, RM446 million to the Works Ministry and a whopping RM11.2 billion for “treasury general services” ahead of federal polls that must be called within the year.

As reported earlier this week that BN MPs will each receive RM1.5 million to plough into their constituencies and that the ruling coalition is looking towards having a general election after Najib tables Budget 2013 this September 28.

The prime minister had also admitted recently that the government was considering a repeat of the RM500 dished out early this year to low-income families under the Bantuan Rakyat 1 Malaysia (BR1M) that cost RM2.6 billion.

The request for extra funds was proof that the ruling pact planned to dish out more allocations to its MPs, while non-BN MPs, including those from Pakatan Rakyat (PR), would not receive a single sen.

Where  RM30 million from the RM112 million allocated to the Prime Minister’s Department was for a “National Branding Unit”, which was not necessary.

One wonders why Malaysia needs a branding unit when there are already existing ministries such as the Tourism Ministry and agencies such as MATRADE.

Good companies which make good products coupled with good governments which implement good policies are sufficient to increase the brand profile of a country. Just think of what Samsung has done for Korea and what Apple has done for the United States, without the need of a National Branding Unit..

We also questioned the need to pour an added RM360 million for the EC’s operations, pointing out that the highly-criticised agency had failed in its basic duty of ensuring the current electoral roll is free from discrepancies.

Despite this, however,  BN’s strategy of going to taxpayers to fund its “irresponsible spending habits” was nothing new.

we give a reminder that the government had asked for an additional RM13.2 billion in June last year and RM10.3 billion in March this year, both for Budget 2011.

Since 1997, Malaysia has been recording 15 consecutive years of budget deficits with government debt soaring from RM89 billion to RM470 billion as at March this year.

Compared against the country’s gross domestic product (GDP),  debt levels had increased five-fold since 1997 while GDP had only grown three-fold.

Najib said late last month the government will ensure that Malaysia’s debt would not exceed the statutory ceiling under the Loan (Local) Act and Government Funding Act due to its prudent management of the nation’s finances.

He said the national debt stood at 53.5 per cent of GDP, which stood at RM881 billion for 2011 after a recent revision, leaving Malaysia just RM13 billion shy of the 55 per cent debt limit.

The Najib administration has pledged to cut the fiscal deficit, which dropped to 4.8 per cent last year from a 22-year high of over seven per cent in 2009.

But Malaysia’s slowing economy, which recorded a third consecutive quarterly dip in growth to 4.7 per cent in the first three months of the year, has raised questions of whether the federal government can keep spending in check.

Analysts have warned Malaysia to brace for a significant slowdown here due to rising linkages with top trade partners including China, the world’s second-largest market which economists say is headed for a sixth consecutive quarterly drop in growth with worse to come.

A Greek exit from the euro zone, which is growing threat, would cause a second recession in as little as four years in Malaysia as the knock-on damage to Europe poses a threat to the global economy, Bloomberg reported analysts and economists as saying recently.

The World Bank also urged Malaysia last week to expedite reforms such as subsidy cuts and broadening the tax base, key initiatives that have stalled ahead of an impending federal election, if it wants to achieve Putrajaya’s target of being a high-income economy by 2020.







Stalin did that to slow down the enemies. 

But here Umno has an agenda.... to purposely bankrupt the country before surrendering the country to the Opposition this GE-13.

as usual the BN Government will do creative accounting and come up with numbers which will look almost believable

This is how they manage our money. We need to do something before we become the next Greece !!

When govt debts soar up, it simply mean the rakyat will bear brunt of price hikes in their daily consumptions of goods and services. Rakyat bears further financial burdens therefore will seek additional financial assistance by drawing down personal loans, credit card and refinancing of housing loans.

A switch of debts to Rakyat thus taken place. Rakyat becomes poorer and brankruptcies increase. According to Malaysia Dept of Insolvency, petition for bankruptcy rose from 2009 ( 17,490 cases ) to 2010 ( 87,645 cases ), Q1 2011 alone hit 20,555 cases. This statistics had shown that Rakyat will bankrupt first before govt goes bankrupt. All MPs please shoot down this supplementary Supply Bill !!

BN have loss all their marbles! They are now putting the publics' marbles into play - like pension and EPF to keep this stupid MAS flying - flying straight into bankruptcy. The whole problem with this is that these UMNO-PUTRAS do not loose anything because they collect first. The MRT is also another stupid project that should be scraped!

I think the approach by UMNO is intentional so that even if the opposition was to takeover Putrajaya, the cupboard is already bare and it is what Stalin did ahead of the Nazi intended invasion of Russia - they burn everything ahead of the conquering army - a scorch earth strategy 

Best of luck Pakatan, UMNO is giving a house on fire over to the opposition, and it will be fire fighting from day 1. I hope to see all the UMNO leadership in jail, 6 months after Pakatan takes over, and freezing all their ill gotten gains

The BN administration knows very well that they may lose the 13th GE and now they have to spend like nobody business. When Pakatan takes over Putrajaya Malaysians will be wondering where all the money gone to.
When I hear this Rm470billion debt, it gives me a chill to the bones. BN govt has to go. Wise Malaysians help yourselves this GE13 by voting PKR. The stupid ones can continue doing what you are doing or wise up.
