when police become BN political pimps...and blind wage earner.... Bike thefts, sexual assault top car park crimes list


Motorcycle thefts are the most recorded criminal activities recorded at parking areas of shopping centres, with 115 cases reported last year.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said this was followed by 44 cases of sexual violations, robbery without firearms (10) and eight case of snatch theft.

“From January to June this year, there were 54 cases of motorcycle thefts, 17 cases of sexual violation, six cases of robbery without firearms and four cases of snatch thefts,” he told reporters after a dialogue session with representatives of Complexes Management Association (PPK) at the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre here today.

The dialogue session was attended by more than 300 PPK members who discussed the issue of security at shopping centres and the measures taken to reduce crimes.

Khalid said shopping centre operators should give emphasis on the importance to raise the level of security in such areas as an effort to fight criminal incidents around shopping centres, especially at the parking area.

He said regular sessions should be held with shopping centre managements to channel the latest developments on security at shopping centres.

Khalid said shopping centre operators had been urged to emulate the initiative taken by the Sunway Pyramid shopping centre in its effort to improve security in the parking areas.

“With 200 panic buttons and more than 400 closed circuit televisions (CCTV) installed in parking lots complemented by security guards on motorcycles and bicycles, it gives added confidence to the public.

At the dialogue, Khalid said shopping centre operators welcomed the proposal of Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein to station voluntary personnel such as People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela) members at shopping centres.

Dr M kept ‘fully involved’ in PKFZ project

robberies until bankrupt....until nothing was left


Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was kept “fully involved” throughout the entire conception process of the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) project, Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik said today as he took the witness stand for the first time to defend himself against charges of cheating the government.

“The PM was kept fully involved in everything I did. He (Dr Mahathir) was so kind... he knew I was onto something good so I could fly overseas anytime.

“Because when I have meetings with shipping agencies abroad, I cannot wait for Cabinet to approve my leave so he would let me go,” he told the High Court when asked to explain how the idea for PKFZ had come about.
“In any government, if the PM supports you, three-quarters of the battle is won... and he (Dr Mahathir) was so supportive,” he added.

Speaking in a soft, halting voice, the former transport minister launched into a lengthy tale behind the conception of the PKFZ, which he said was mooted to save the country’s busiest port from further decline and to lift it to become one of the world’s top 10 ports.

Dr Ling, who served the ministry for 17 years, said Port Klang was not even ranked during his early years in the ministry although unofficial rankings had then placed it at 57th in the world.

“This is a story that needs to be told,” he said. “Any transport minister in the world would want to see their country with a good transport system. If the roads are bad, the economy collapses. If railways are non-existent and not on time, the economy collapses on that.

“If 98 per cent of goods are trapped at ports, then the economy collapses. Therefore, ports are the most important component of any economy.

“So when I first became transport minister, these were the things that I was looking at and I was really lucky that we had Dr Mahathir as our leader,” he said.

Dr Ling said the government had appointed the global management consulting firm Boston Consultancy Group to study how Port Klang could be improved and it was agreed that upgrades were needed to help attract more ships into its waterway.

He said Malaysia was losing out to its regional partners in Singapore, Hong Kong and even Thailand and “becoming worse and worse”.

Several visits to ports abroad followed, Dr Ling explained, until he came to Dubai’s Jebel Ali Port, the largest in the Middle East, and the idea of PKFZ was born.

“I saw it as a new model that we can have... instead of just fast handling and fast training for workers, lets use it (the port) to manufacture (goods) for the whole Asean region,” he said.

Dr Ling said that after he informed Dr Mahathir of the idea, the Cabinet began to take interest.

“Once Dr Mahathir is interested, the whole Cabinet must be interested,” he said, drawing laughter from the courtroom.

Earlier, Dr Ling told the court that any decision made in Cabinet is by way of consensus but could later be revisited for further discussion if objections are made.

He added that on March 1999, Cabinet decided to purchase a plot of land from turnkey developer Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) sited close to Port Klang, but said the financing aspects of the acquisition were left up to government valuers and the Treasury.

Dr Ling later told the courtroom that he had previously been called forward to testify before Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) regarding PKFZ but did so without sighting any documentation to help him refresh his memory.

He pointed out that this was because after leaving government in 2003, he no longer had access to the documents as they were classified under the Official Secrets Act (OSA).

“These are OSA (documents) so I cannot take them and go home,” he said.

But he said that the PAC had only made “positive remarks” of him following their meeting and at no time “during the meeting, after the meeting or in the press” did the committee indicate that its findings were critical of his role in the PKFZ project.

Dr Ling is facing the possibility of a seven-year jail term, or fine, or both, for allegedly deceiving the Cabinet into approving land purchase for the PKFZ project, which had resulted in wrongful losses for the government.

He 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 the Valuation and Property Services Department (JPPH) despite knowing that there was no such agreement.

The trial before Justice Datuk Ahmadi Asnawi continues on Monday.







yes we must do everything to have to best port in the world is one thing, corruption and cheating for own benefit is another thing. You r in the court not because you dont do your job but for cheating for your own benefit, get it?

Ports are an important component of a country, it could lead to economy collapse. However, corruption could lead to a country's collapse. PKFZ may be a good project, its implementation and corruptions by self serving politicians certainly is not good for the country. The people is not questioning the project but its scandals and corruptions.

he said he was very lucky to have someone as his leader. But now that leader just shrugs his shoulders and say "Apanama, whatzat got to do with me now ? I can't remember those things of times long gone". Looks like luck do change over time and may also be running out too.

malaysia bankrupt by .UMNO robbers......Scorpene-linked firm part of George Kent consortium


PKR’s Rafizi Ramli has asked why a French multinational that was involved in the sale of Scorpene submarines to Malaysia was allowed to form multiple partnerships to mount three bids for the lucrative Ampang LRT extension project.

He also alleged that Thales is part of the George Kent consortium that is speculated to have won the contract.

The PKR strategic director suggested that the preferential treatment given to Thales pointed to interference in the selection process by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Rafizi  said that Thales was involved in three out of eight shortlisted consortiums in state-appointed consultant Halcrow’s technical evaluation report, namely, George Kent-Wijet-Thales, Colas-CMC-Thales and Samsung-LG-Thales.

“From the list of bidders, no other transport technology suppliers are allowed to send more than one bid, except for Thales,” said Rafizi, adding that this “favourable treatment” was against the usual “good practice” in a tendering process.

Rafizi said this “reflected the close relationship between Datuk Seri Najib Razak and this company (Thales) since the Scorpene purchase.”

He was referring to the Scorpene submarine procurement deal where Thales was said to have made transactions with companies linked to Abdul Razak Baginda, a former adviser of Najib.

Rafizi has repeatedly claimed that Putrajaya has decided to hand over the Ampang LRT extension project to the George Kent consortium, and has accused Najib of interference after alleging that the group had not been selected by the bidding panel.

On Tuesday he showed reporters a copy of a Ministry of Finance approval letter dated last June 25 purportedly awarding the deal to George Kent.

The government has not made an announcement yet on the winner of the contract.

Rafizi has repeatedly accused the prime minister of interfering in the tender bid and granting the multimillion contract to George Kent, which had scored one of the lowest points in the technical and commercial evaluation for the project, but has not shown proof until this week.

This was despite an earlier decision by Putrajaya to award the multi-million ringgit rail project to Balfour Beatty-Invensys Consortium, which Rafizi said was best qualified for the job.

The rail builders led by the British engineering firm were the lowest bidders for the LRT open tender that closed on June 16 last year, offering to take on the project for RM950 million. The highest bid was for RM1.45 billion.

PKR officials have shown copies of official documents to the press, showing that the MoF’s Acquisition Committee, which met this January 25, had decided to award the contract to Balfour Beatty-Invensys Consortium.

The committee is the highest decision-making body in the MoF and is chaired by Najib himself, who is also finance minister.

PKR had recently lodged a police report on the issue, citing Najib for criminal breach of trust in his alleged interference in the project award, which has yet to be announced publicly.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has also kicked off investigations at Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (SPNB) over the RM960 million contract.

The  reported on June 29 that the speculated winner of the Ampang LRT system works, George Kent, was one of three bidders that failed both the technical and commercial evaluations for the RM960 million contract.

Sources said that only five of the eight bidders passed the technical and commercial evaluation stage but project owner SPNB finally recommended one of the two South Korean consortiums in the running — PDA Consortium — as the other consortiums were said to not have complied with all conditions.

The PKR man has pledged to make the Ampang LRT extension contract a major campaign issue at the next general election.






Our country will soon be bankrupt by Umno-BN if given another term.

Malaysians, please help us and yourself for our future generations to kick out these monstrous corrupt Government.

Thales is most probably the company that help UMNO to funnle their ill gotten gains in some overseas accounts to avoid detection. Someone should check the current Thales's Directors?

another worm crawling out and you don't even hear a pin drop sound from MACC and other authorities. Looks like if the rakyat don't do anything this coming GE then don't blame the country become Greece and your next generation doomed. it's bad really bad now each day my confidence in my beloved country is getting dangerously low.

Another torpedo from Scorpene.! Hope this one will sink Najib and Barisan

Hwa Beng’s PKFZ book could harm Liong Sik’s case


Datuk Lee Hwa Beng’s recently-released book on the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal drew criticism today during Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik’s cheating trial when the latter’s lawyer argued that it may create prejudice against his client’s case.

Dr Ling’s counsel, Wong Kian Kheong, pointed out to the High Court here that Lee, who was a former chairman of the Port Klang Authority and also a witness for the prosecution, had released the book shortly after his client was ordered to enter his defence in March this year.

“The adverse publicity has created a substantial risk of prejudice against Tun Ling, that Tun Ling will not be able to receive a fair trial,” he said in an opening speech to the court.

The lawyer also claimed that Dr Ling has been denied his constitutional right to fair trial as he was accused of an alleged wrongdoing only after he had left government in 2003.

Dr Ling took to the witness stand for the first time today to defend himself against charges of cheating the government over the purchase of land for the PKFZ project, which is said to have resulted in billions of ringgit in losses for the government.

The former MCA president, who served out a 17-year term in the transport ministry until 2003, 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 charges concern events that took place between 1999 until 2002. Tun Ling stepped down as Transport Minister in May 2003,” Wong said.

He argued that official documents relating to the PKFZ project are classified under the Official Secrets Act 1972 and Dr Ling was no longer allowed access to them as he had retired.

“In the circumstances, Tun Ling’s defence has been seriously prejudiced,” he said.

Lee’s book, “PKFZ: A Nation’s Trust - Betrayed”, which was released in April, chronicles the story of the project first mooted in 1997 and includes insights from his three years as PKA boss when the controversy erupted, as well as his role in the investigations.

The former Subang Jaya assemblyman had said that despite five years of exposés on the RM12.5 billion PKFZ scandal, the authorities have only hit the “tip of the iceberg”.

“Outside of PKA, a lot of things happened. It might come out in the court cases. OC Phang’s trial will probably reveal even more facts,” Lee said of the former PKA general manager who served from 1997 to 2008, when the cost of the project ballooned from RM1.1 billion to RM4.6 billion.

She is currently on trial for three counts of criminal breach of trust involving over RM254 million related to the PKFZ.

“In the Transport Ministry, there are so many things that happened, which we won’t know about, that might not be revealed in the court cases. Only the police and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) have the power to dig (these) out.

“The six that are on trial were not charged with corruption. Without that, the money trail won’t come out,” he said, referring to the prosecution of the half dozen individuals including two former transport ministers.

The project, initially estimated at RM1.1 billion after it was mooted by then transport minister Dr Ling in 1997, more than quadrupled in cost to RM4.6 billion by 2007.

A position review by top accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) revealed in 2009 that the total cost including interests from debt repayments could reach RM12.5 billion.

Since December 2009, six individuals have been charged in court including Dr Ling, and his successor as transport minister, former MCA deputy chief Tan Sri Chan Kong Choy. Both are accused of lying to the Cabinet.


Those who cheat or corrupt must go to jail no doubt about that...If you find this book to be untruth,sue the writer. truth will prevail...

If one reads between the lines, the entire cabinet is involved in siphoning the money out partially for the parties like UMNO and MCA, with the rest of the loot probably spread out to all that were in the know, so to speak. On the surface, it looks like MCA's problem but when you look at the amount and the BN crooks reaction thus far, a conclusion can be arrived at. Its a BN CRIME!!

Najib has proven that he is male wimp ..MCA star sex is still to be propping him....Soi Lek: Najib proven enough, no need to debate Anwar

Datuk Seri Najib Razak has already proven his ability to govern well and does not need to be judged in a political debate with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said today.

Dr Chua (picture) pointed out that Najib was not an unknown personality and his work has been proven through his successes over the past three years.

“Why should Najib debate with Anwar? Najib is PM and has sat in a hot seat for the last three years and under difficulty, he has delivered.

“You can see the results through his economic transformation programme, it is clear, what’s to debate?” he said today.

Dr Chua was speaking in a press conference this afternoon after squaring-off for the second time with DAP secretary-general and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng in a debate entitled, “Whose policies benefit the country more”.

Instead, the former health minister said if should be Anwar who should be debating other Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders as the Opposition Leader needs to prove to voters what he has to offer.

“His policies must be clear, tangible, substantial... right now it’s all full of rhetoric,” he said.

“They (PR) should show they can deliver and walk the talk.”

Earlier, Lim had said during his opening remarks during the event organised by the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (Asli) that such a debate should be held between the country’s top two rivals – Najib and Anwar.

He questioned Najib’s refusal so far to entertain the opposition’s request to hold the debate, suggesting that the prime minister feared he would lose in a face-of with Anwar.

“A debate should be held between the PM and Anwar, but the PM refuses to debate Anwar, is he worried after the debate, the people will determine Anwar is more capable to be PM?” he questioned today in his opening remark.

“Why can’t the PM debate the opposition leader to let people decide who is more qualified to be PM of Malaysia?”

Lim said if one “wants to be PM, then you must debate”.

“If there is no debate, how can there be transformation? Only degress," he said.





Trying to defend and apple polishing his boss with lame excuses. Anyway, go on pleasing your boss because when he knows that you are a liability, you will be O.O.O - Out Of Service!

If there is one thing Najib has proven, it is being a coward by not having the courage to accept challenge for debate. 

Malaysians, do you think we should have a PM who is a coward?

You want to know why....because Najib has been begging the people to give him another does that sound like he has proven himself to the Malaysian people. 

why are you keeping your mouth shut about the DA and the sub

War of words as Soi Lek, Guan Eng square off in second debate


It was a game of mudslinging when political rivals Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and Lim Guan Eng took the debate stage this afternoon for the second time in months, with both men slagging off on one another over the failed policies of their respective parties.
Dr Chua sniped at Lim’s DAP, accusing it of masquerading as a multiracial party when its leaders only dared to contest in Chinese-majority constituencies.

“Why don’t you contest in multiracial constituencies? We are a mono-ethnic party but are aims are clear,” he said during the debate organised by the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (Asli) at the Sunway Convention Centre.

The debate, titled “Whose policies benefit the country more”, is the second such face-off between the two political veterans in months.

“In this country, we have to balance the needs and sensitivities of all races. No particular race will feel happy,” Dr Chua pointed out.

He accused the DAP of often claiming to the country’s Chinese community that they have been marginalised under Barisan Nasional’s (BN) rule but reminded the opposition party that the poverty rate of the Chinese is still the lowest among the country’s three major races.

“Employment (rate), the highest. Property ownership, the largest,” he thundered. “We cannot deny that in the implementation process, there are those who benefit more than others and this is the bone of contention.... it causes a lot of Chinese to be angry with the government and MCA bears the burden of this.”

His political rival Lim, however, questioned the need to segregate races despite BN’s constant unity call of 1Malaysia.

“They say 1Malaysia, nak tipu siapa? (Who are they lying to?) They want to divide us to sapu Malaysia (sweep Malaysia),” Lim said today to loud cheers and applause from supporters.

“BN will keep using the race issue to scare us because they have run out of other issues. If we want to benefit from equal opportunities and realise our potential we must stop extremists from continually degrading others as inferiors,” he added.

Lim said in order to attain peace, Malaysians must “stand united and reject those who wish to divide us by preaching racial and religious hatred”.

“Don’t let BN use the race issue and anti-Malay sentiments just to hold on to power,” he urged.

“We can only be prosperous together. The time has come to focus on the economy, in employment, education and business opportunities as the conditions for prosperity,” he added.

Lim also accused BN of practicing corruption and cronyism, saying the ruling government “cannot reform to end corruption”.

“We know if we wipe out corruption, BN will die. But if we don’t wipe out corruption, Malaysia will die. The choice is clear,” he said.

“That’s why we choose ‘ubah’ (change), we want to live with liberty and dignity.”

Today’s debate was watched online via live streaming on MCA’s website and followed closely on Twitter.

Many local dailies, including MCA-owned English daily The Star, published live updates on the highly-anticipated event, which went on for two hours from 2.30pm today.

A delayed telecast of the event will be aired at 11pm tonight on Astro AEC with a Bahasa Malaysia translation on Astro Awani.






CSL is a joke. But the bigger enigma is there are people that support him. I can never understand these people. These supporters of his are even worse than him absolutely lost all dignity! Please regain your dignity still not too late. Don't let your children, family and friends look down on you, you may gain material things but never respect from others. The journey of life is not about materialism , it's how you live your life. Don't be a chaw kau!

Dear LGE, I wish you would stop debating with these losers. I really cannot understand what you have to gain. MCA is already a nothing and they have nothing to lose. You have everything to lose. MCA plays dirty and you want to play with integrity

BN will eventually fall under the weight of its own corruption and pull the whole nation down with it! MCA's support for BN therefore should not be unconditional, and 100% sokong only.

Malaysians, Chinese included, will vote for ANY party that support their well being and champion their cause.The on-going policy of favouring elite UMNOPutras benefits only a handful of cronies like Datuk NFC, but will lead our Nation down the road to mediocrity by 2020 if left unchecked.
