it was true....MACC should be free from political interference

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) should be allowed to get on with the job of implementing national anti-corruption strategies, without having to encounter any political interference.

Former Independent Commission Against Corruption of Hong Kong (ICAC) commissioner Bertrand de Speville said politicians from all divides must also have faith and confidence in the MACC to accomplish the task entrusted to them.

“Presenting the MACC 2011 Annual Report to parliamentarians is a step towards more accountability and transparency.

“However, this should not serve as an opportunity for politicians to start second-guessing the anti-corruption body in its investigations into any particular case, although they can question the report.

“When they start to second-guess the commission, they begin to undermine the independence and investigations autonomy of the anti-corruption body, and they will serve the country ill by doing that,” he said, during a visit to the MACC recently.

The article was posted on the MACC’s official blog here today.

Since stepping down in 1996 as the commissioner of ICAC Hong Kong, de Speville has advised governments and international organisations on various aspects of anti-corruption policy and practice.

From 1997-2003, he was adviser to the Council of Europe’s Multi-disciplinary Group on Corruption.

Praising the MACC for being accountable to representatives of the public, de Speville noted that it was essential for the commission to have friends in local communities.

“If you do not have public support, you cannot win the fight,” he said, besides stressing the need to equip the national anti-corruption body with sufficient funds and resources.





If MACC is made independent, the jail will be full of politicians and the crooks and robbers will have to be released to make space. And judging by the standard of the police force nowadays, the rakyat will be in massive danger.

What a load of rubbish? BN will never make MACC independent. MACC is not accountable the public. The only way is for MACC make directly accountable and funded through parliament

One funny scenerio always happen in this government top gun. During they are in service / in power, they dare not say anything, but after retired and then they start to give more human sound advice and opinion. One leg already step on the grave only speak the truth.

MCA foot sex accused others like him.....Guan Eng denies affair, says he’s not Soi Lek

The DAP’s Lim Guan Eng today denied having a secret affair with a former aide, saying he was not like political rival Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, who had publicly admitted to extramarital relations in 2008 after video recordings of his trysts were publicly leaked.

The Penang chief minister also challenged today an MCA Malacca state lawmaker to relinquish his immunity and repeat openly the allegations against him and his wife, which Lim denounced as the ruling Barisan Nasional’s smear campaign against him ahead of national polls due within a year.

“I have no close or secret relationship with my former staff. My wife has never assaulted me or anyone in her life.

“Let MCA repeat their allegations publicly so that my wife and [I] can prove in court that, ‘Lim Guan Eng is not Chua Soi Lek!’, he said in a statement.

The allegations had surfaced on a blog believed to be sponsored by MCA supporters.

The blog was set up last year and primarily contains attacks against the DAP and other opposition parties. It is anonymously written.

On Monday, Malacca MCA chief Datuk Gan Tian Loo had accused Lim of having an affair with an aide and demanded the DAP secretary-general’s wife and Malacca assemblyman, Betty Chew, reply to allegations that she had beaten up the woman, resulting in the latter’s transfer out of the Penang CM’s office.

Today, Lim said Gan had abused his assemblyman privileges by making the remarks inside the state assembly, which affords him legal immunity for claims made within.

“I want Gan to repeat his allegations outside (the assembly) so that my wife and [I] can file a legal suit against him for defamation for making such ‘kurang ajar’ or uncouth remarks.

“If Gan fails to do so, then he has shown himself to be a coward who is unfit to be a leader, an exco member and a wakil rakyat (assemblyman),” he said.

The DAP leader strongly objected to the allegations, which he said smacked of “gutter politics”, and reminded the public that he and his family have been repeatedly subjected to personal attacks from BN lawmakers and supporters.

He gave as example unsubstantiated claims published on Umno’s official website that his 15-year-old son had sexually molested a female classmate, which was spread by the ruling Malay party’s Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin and pro-Umno bloggers.

Lim had filed police reports to stop the slander but claimed the authorities had failed to act.

He also pointed out that Umno has failed to offer an apology after the purported victim, Hong Kong chess champion Anya Corke, stepped forward to deny she knew Lim or his son. Corke’s picture had been splashed all over pro-Umno media as that of the “victim”.

“Having failed to destroy my son and affect me, the BN media machinery has now undertaken another smear campaign through MCA against my wife.

“Clearly, BN will practise the dirtiest politics to try to topple democratically elected leaders, even attacking innocent members of the family,” the Bagan MP said.

He added that DAP lawmakers have never indulged in gutter politics nor have they misused their parliamentary privilege to attack Dr Chua in Parliament.

The former health minister who was forced to resign from all his government and political posts has since recovered from political exile and returned as MCA president.

Lim will face off against the MCA chief in a second debate this Sunday afternoon, as both political parties race to claw voter support for the next election that could see a regime change in Malaysia.






BN has no ethics and morality left. Their members are consumed in sinful activites and encourages everybody to follow their path.

MCA is basically the rubbish party nowadays and will anything and everything to to harm the chinese people to maintain their own political survival. To all MCA leaders and members pls take note, the more u do this the more the chinese people will hate and wont vote for u in GE13.

Just because MCA is headed by someone who cheated on his wife, they think everyone else have low or loose morals like him




like father like son to UMNOPORNO...MCA to court over Talam claims


Selangor will sue MCA and all parties that have accused the state government of misusing RM1 billion in public funds, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said today.

“Selangor will take legal action against MCA. The state executive council has decided to sue MCA and those who have made accusations against the state government with regards to the RM1 billion misappropriation.

“The decision to take legal action is because it is not only untrue and serious, but it has tarnished the good name of the Selangor government, Mentri Besar Khalid told reporters.

He declined to comment further, saying he has been advised by his solicitors to refrain from doing so until the matter has been addressed in court.

Khalid yesterday defended Selangor’s buyout of Talam Corporation Bhd’s debts two years ago, saying the restructuring of the troubled property developer’s debt restructuring was done “with basis”.

“Like I said we have shown what we have done in regards to the restructuring of Talam… we do not do something without basis,” he told reporters here.

Khalid said his administration will release a “white paper” on Talam Corp’s debt restructuring plan at the end of this year, during the Budget 2013 presentation.

MCA Young Professionals Bureau chairman Datuk Chua Tee Yong said yesterday Khalid’s administration had bought over Talam Corp’s RM676 million assets to clear Talam Corp’s outstanding debts.

The Selangor state assembly approved a supplementary budget of RM391 million for Mentri Besar Incorporated (MBI) in November 2010 to buy over Talam Corp’s debt incurred after several failed real estate ventures with state agencies.

Talam Corp, now known as Trinity Corporation Berhad, had owed Universiti Selangor (Unisel) and Permodalan Nasional Selangor Berhad (PNSB) RM277 million. It had also owed SAP Holdings — a subsidiary of listed company Kumpulan Hartanah Selangor Berhad (KHSB) — RM115 million.

The property developer’s annual report in 2010 stated that Selangor also purchased assets worth RM284 million from the company in addition to recovering its RM392 million debt, or a total of RM676 million.

Chua claimed that Talam’s debts with the state companies were still outstanding, and produced KHSB’s 2012 annual report as evidence.

“Based on KHSB’s annual report, it shows RM115 million is still outstanding from the Selangor government. This shows that no payment was received by KHSB, the state company,” Chua said yesterday.

“Unisel has also not received any money. There is no need for Unisel to sell assets to raise RM30 million for its usage if they did receive money from Talam Corp,” he added, referring to Selangor’s announcement last month that it would liquidate assets to help Unisel students whose student loans had been frozen.





YB Khalid,you made my day!! Sue the young punk,make him a bankrupt...and if possible sue mca which has lots and lots of xxx xxxxxx wealth held in trust for them.

Teach these rascals a lesson. Please make sure that CTY is sued in his personal capacity as well as a lesson to do his homework before spewing garbage and venom against PR or anybody. These umno/bn scums are enjoying absolute freedom of speech to defame and destroy people who are working hard to serve the people and to remedy the damage, sins and wrongs perpetuated by umno/bn for over 50 years. Also sue MSM which sensationalise and carry these false accusations on front page headline of their dailies. All these lies must stop.

Like father like son always big mouth talking nonsense. Yeah sue MCA and bury them for good. Also make them never reborn again.

Sue the pants off these irresponsible fellows and teach them to sew their mouths. DAP should also sue the MCA guy in the Malacca state assembly for making false claims about Betty.

government servants do not loyal to UMNO....remember that the government of the day can change. These political parties that form the government of the day, they can come and go.


Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders reminded the country’s 1.4 million civil servants today that they should “be loyal to the country, the King and the Federal Constitution and not to the ruling party,” amid recent concerns about the lack of impartiality among senior government officials.

“They (civil servants) must remember that the government of the day can change. These political parties that form the government of the day, they can come and go.

“So if these parties that rule, if they go into the wilderness, do you follow them? No. You still remain a civil servant and your loyalty is to serve the public professionally,” DAP national deputy chairman Dr Tan Seng Giaw told The Malaysian Insider.

Newly-appointed Chief Secretary to the Government Datuk Seri Ali Hamsa had recently raised eyebrows when he told his new charges that they “should know better” than to believe the “empty promises” made by the opposition.

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said Ali had clearly got off to a “bad start” with his statement.

“That was out of line. This is the first time that a KSN (Chief Secretary) has done that. He got off to a bad start here,” he told 

The DAP secretary-general, who also sits as a lawmaker in Parliament, reminded Ali that as the country’s top civil servant, he should be particularly respectful of the Federal Constitution.

“And the opposition, which he is telling his charges not to believe in, is entitled to gain the same respect (as the ruling party). We are the loyal opposition to His Majesty’s government,” Lim pointed out.

The Bagan MP said politics must be kept out of the civil service, and disagreed with Ali’s assertion that that the loyalty of public servants lies with the ruling party of the day.

“We must be loyal to the country, the Federal Constitution and the King. We are not to be loyal to the ruling party. At the same time, they cannot tread into politics,” he said.

PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar concurred with Lim, adding that “loyalty to the nation” should never be equated as “loyalty to Umno and BN”.

She acknowledged that public servants are duty bound to serve the government of the day, as per the General Orders they follow, but she reminded that their duty was also to “serve professionally”.

“They are not to be made tools and servants of the current government... especially when it does not have their interest at heart,” she told The Malaysian Insider.

“They must implement policies cleanly, effectively and with accountability and transparency — that is what the civil service should be,” Dr Tan agreed.

The 1.4-million-strong public sector has been a traditional vote bank for BN but the controversy over a new pay scheme and attacks on the ruling parties by PR over bread-and-butter issues may offer the federal opposition a glimmer of hope in the coming polls.

But recent days have seen top government officials go on an apparent overdrive to protect the BN government they serve.

Apart from Ali’s message to the civil service, Foreign Ministry undersecretary Ahmad Rozian Abdul Ghani recently attacked a Canadian newspaper for describing Najib as a “false democrat,” and insisted that the prime minister had “an impressive track record by anyone’s standards”.

“While the prime minister takes nothing for granted, he hopes he will be given a mandate to continue Malaysia’s transformation,” the diplomat added, appearing to campaign for the country’s sixth prime minister who is due to call for polls within months.

A director at Putrajaya’s efficiency unit, Pemandu, also made a public attack on PR on Wednesday for not improving the states it governs and focusing on sniping and criticising the federal government’s efforts.

“All oppos do is snipe & critic wot is being done but not focused on improving their states! Wot hv they done??” communications director Alex Iskandar Liew said on his public account on micro-blogging site Twitter, copying @barisannasional and @NRC11, a fan club dedicated to the prime minister.

But despite this, Lim believed these subtle messages infiltrating into the civil service may be falling on deaf ears.

“I don’t think we should underestimate the intelligence of our civil servants,” he told 

“They may be compelled and forced to carry out their duties because they are instructed to do so. But once they retire, you see many of them joining the opposition,” he pointed out.

Lim pointed out that it is not easy for civil servants to go against an order they have received from above if they felt it was wrong.

“It is also not easy for them to just resign. It affects their rice bowls, after all,” he said.

But this, he added, does not mean that civil servants will necessarily cast their votes for BN when stand before the ballot boxes

“Do not underestimate their intelligence,” he repeated.






In the past,civil servants who are members of the oppostion party are at the mercy of the govt.They are being transferred elsewhere if they are too involved in the party concerned. But nowadays they are luckier because more heads of departments are oppositon members,therefore feedbacks from the latters are less. Civil servants nowadays are more intelligent and not follow blindly instructions given unless it concerned the nature of their to be too hopeful of votes from the 1.4million out there is a dream yet to come true,because BN must not be too naive not to know that civil servants are intelligent enough to know that however much increase in pay they get are nothing compared to the rich umnoputras who have robbed rakyats money many times more than what they are getting.thus they know that if PR is to become the govt of the day,they too will get the same benefits if not to all civil servants out there,pls cast your votes wisely

cow brain lazybones police ......Spike in Selangor crime due to EO repeal, says deputy CPO


Selangor’s deputy police chief today suggested the repeal of the Emergency Ordinance (EO) may have caused a hike in the state’s crime rate due to the number of suspects who could have returned to a life of felony instead of reforming.

Last September, the federal government repealed the controversial EO, a security law introduced after the 1969 race riots that allowed the authorities to detain a person without trial for up to two years, similar to the much-criticised Internal Security Act (ISA).

It was usually used on hardcore gangsters but had also been used on children who were held in the same detention facilities as adults.

“But we see there is a rise in crime (recently) because they’ve been in (detention) for too long, they need ‘exercise’, so they come out and immediately they carry out their activities,” Selangor’s deputy commissioner of police, A. Thaiveegan, was reported as saying by news portal Malaysiakini today.

He was earlier reported to have said the government had released the EO detainees to give them a second chance, but was now uncertain if they had returned “to the right path”.

“There may be one or two cases here and there which we are handling. There could be reasons why there is a sudden surge. There are a few criminals who have returned to society and they may take time to change (their ways).

“I can’t confirm yet (because of the EO). It could be, but we will need time to confirm that. Give us another month or two then we will confirm,” Thaiveegan was reported adding.

The website quoted the senior policeman as saying that even though statistics showed the crime rate in Malaysia’s most developed state had dropped by 11.2 per cent, the public was still dissatisfied with the result.

A spate of high-profile kidnap attempts and robberies — some of them armed — targeting individuals, businesses and even hospitals has raised concern over public safety nationwide.

Last week, a woman was slashed in the head in the car park of the popular Mid Valley Megamall in the Klang Valley, the third reported case in a month of armed robbers seemingly targeting lone women that garnered wide media coverage.

Earlier this month, thieves carted off millions of ringgit in high-end medical gear from several hospitals around the Klang Valley, including from the public-funded University Malaya Medical Centre.

Home Minister, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, has said that the country’s crime rate is not on the rise despite growing concern over public safety, saying that two recent violent crime cases were “isolated” incidents.

PEMANDU, the government’s efficiency unit tasked with reducing the crime rate under the Government Transformation Programme (GTP), had insisted that there has been a drastic drop in such incidences and pointed instead to “unfortunate” media coverage.

But a federal lawmaker from Selangor had questioned the effectiveness of the GTP which singles out Malaysia’s richest state as a ‘hotspot’ for crime reduction after the Home Ministry said crime in Selangor had risen by nearly 12 per cent between 2010 and 2011 or the equivalent of a rise of 39,691 cases to 44,302.

The Home Ministry quickly issued a correction but Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua found that this was at least the third set of crime figures released for his state recently, creating further doubt over the accuracy of the government’s statistics.

But Pua, DAP’s publicity chief, had called on the Home Ministry and PEMANDU to “stop blaming crime on ‘perception’.”

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had two weeks ago said that more must be done to increase public safety, giving his assurance that the government was concerned with “all kinds of violence, including against women”, despite saying that the country’s general crime rate had dipped considerably.






"Detain a person without trial ... " assumes the police catch the criminals! Gauging from news reports and social media updates, the police are not able to catch the criminals to begin with.. primarily coz, instead of playing police-and-thief, they're playing politics and waging a war against the peace-loving citizens who pay their salary! What an irony!

So, since Najib is the one who repealed the EO, he is responsible for the increase of crime in Selangor?

Passing the buck is one of BN's favourite pastimes, but this is the first time I've heard of a government flunkie shifting blame to the PM...

Sounds to me like we have a 'chicken little' who cries out that the sky is falling. Does the deputy have any proof that the crime was by released EO detainees? Nope not a a single iota. He needs two months. Why? So that he can cook up some evidence. Does this lamb-brain phenomenon run throughout PDRM and Home ministry?

First Pemandu say crime has dropped. The Government than said it's just a perception. Now the Police says there is a hike. What a confusing Government we have. Soon some wise will say that the Police is wrong; Pemandu will say they will check the data again and the Goverment & Hishamuddin will say that they have been mis-quoted about the perception thing. In the end, nobody is right & nobody is wrong because nobody knows what is happening. That's Malaysia.
