najib monkey business....Najib says willing to forgive mooning, but law cannot forget

heloo mr haramjadah ...... how is this .... what actions should be done ...???

Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today he was prepared to forgive a 19-year-old student for baring his buttocks at photographs of the prime minister and his wife at a pro-democracy gathering last week, but the boy will still have to face the full extent of the law.
The police had arrested the boy as well as a number of other teenagers for stomping on the same photographs, in what opposition politicians say is an over-reaction to the exuberance of young activists.

Speaking in Besut, Terengganu today, Najib said he had no qualms about forgiving the boy.

“But the principle is the legal process cannot be compromised and must continue. On the question of him wanting to see me, that can be arranged,” he told reporters.

The Umno-linked New Straits Times newspaper reported today that the boy’s father has apologised over the incident.

His son was also expelled from a private college over the incident.

It is unclear what charges the boy faces, but the police had arrested him under the Sedition Act, which Najib had announced earlier this year would be repealed.

Sedition is not clearly defined and this was one of the reasons for the planned repeal as its use has sparked complaints against abuse by the authorities.

Earlier today, another teenager apologised for stepping on the prime minister’s picture at Dataran Merdeka during the countdown of the country’s 55th National Day last week.

Ong Sing Yee, 19, had surrendered to the police in Johor yesterday to help in investigations over the incident.

The police were reported to have set up three task forces to investigate three separate incidents of hooliganism that took place over the National Day weekend.

A firestorm erupted last week after several individuals were recorded tearing up posters bearing images of the prime minister, his wife and Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof at the same event.

Several other people were spotted waving a flag with an alternative design ― now identified as the Sang Saka Malaya ― instead of the Jalur Gemilang at the National Day bash last Thursday night.

Bukit Aman’s CID director Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Zinin told The Malaysian Insider that the police were probing the two separate incidents under the Sedition Act ― despite Putrajaya’s decision to repeal the controversial law that has been widely panned as a tool to curb political dissent.

Mohd Bakri said the police were probing the flag incident as an attempt to incite hatred with intent to create public disorder under Section 4 (1)(a) of the Sedition Act 1948.

He added that stepping on pictures of Najib and wife were considered offences under Sections 290 and 504 of the Penal Code for being public nuisances and intentionally causing insult with an intent to provoke break the public peace, respectively.

Those convicted under Section 290 may be fined up to RM400 while those found guilty under Section 504 are liable to be jailed up to two years or fined, or both.

However, Section 4 (1)(a) of the Sedition Act prescribes a mandatory jail term of three years or a fine of up to RM5,000 for first offenders, which is subsequently raised to five years’ jail for repeat offences.

One person has owned up to waving the Sang Saka Malaya flag instead of the Jalur Gemilang during the 55th National Day countdown here last week but defended the act as an attempt to educate the public about the country’s history instead of being a bid to replace the national flag.

Opposition leaders and the organisers of the “Janji Demokrasi” rally — a group of 47 NGOs that had gathered at the same venue that night to remind the Barisan Nasional (BN) of its electoral reform pledges — have been blamed for the acts.

Leaders from the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) opposition pact and the “Janji Demokrasi” organisers have denied the allegations, rubbishing the claims as “baseless” attempts from their political foes to gain points ahead of the 13th general election due soon.

Political rivalry between BN and PR has intensified in recent days as the window for the next poll narrows in a race that could see a regime change in Malaysia for the first time in 55 years.





Not too long ago, a group of ex-soldiers went to Ambiga's house and wiggled their butts. I don't think any action was taken against them

How about those who stepped and show disrespect to the photograph of the opposition leaders who are also CM and MB??? Do they have to face the full extent of the law??? Bias !! Bias !! Bias!!

old senile fooling ...Pakatan will contrive to rule forever, Dr M warns

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad warned Malaysians today that the country may never see a Barisan Nasional (BN) government again if Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is voted into Putrajaya, saying the federal opposition would do “everything possible” to stay in power forever.

The former prime minister, who was speaking to a crowd of government retirees in Lembah Pantai here, did not elaborate what he meant by his warning but urged voters to appreciate BN's “good governance” over the past 55 years.

The influential leader laid the credit for all of Malaysia’s success on BN’s doorstep, adding that it was “almost a miracle” that the country managed to soar economically and socially despite its diverse racial make-up.

“I know that some of us feel that, why not try something else. Then in five years, we can change again to BN.

“But no way... once they gain power, they will do everything possible, and we cannot change again to BN... by then, it will be too late,” Dr Mahathir said in his speech during a tea-time session with the Lembah Pantai Retirees Club here.

The country’s longest-serving prime minister then reminded the audience of his experience in government, and said he “knows a few things”.

He also repeated a recent point he has made on his blog and in public speeches that “change” may not necessarily be for the better.

“A lot of people ask, ‘should there not be a change (in government)?’ I feel ― and I do have some experience... you remember, I was PM for 22 years ― change is not always for the better.

“Change may be for worse things. You may even destroy this country if you allow yourself to elect a government that is only interested in becoming the prime minister... not in serving the people.

“They want to become PM... so they go around telling people that it is time for a change,” he said.

Dr Mahathir was likely referring to his former deputy in government, Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, whom he has often accused of being only focussed on securing the premiership.





Hmmm... Dr M really thinks Rakyat don't have a right to vote freely or BN should not have to face free and fair elections... Based on his arguments, we should not have elections ?
BN will collapse. ....Unmo members will join PKR. East Malaysian BN parties will join PR.

Anti-Lynas group says will seek injunction to stop rare earth plant

The main environmental group opposed to the Lynas rare earth plant in Kuantan said today it would seek to get an injunction to freeze a temporary operating license (TOL) issued earlier this week to the Australian miner.

Save Malaysia Stop Lynas (SMSL) chairman Tan Bun Teet said he was not surprised with the Atomic Energy Licensing Board’s (AELB) decision to issue the TOL to Lynas despite widespread public protests and concerns about safety.

“We are going to the High Court in Kuantan for judicial review of the TOL, but even before we come to trial, AELB has jumped the gun and issued a TOL,” Tan  told  today.

“We feel that this is very unprofessional, unethical, and maybe even illegal,” he added.

Tan was referring to two pending judicial review applications filed by SMSL in the Kuantan High Court.

The first is a judicial review of the award of a TOL to Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (Lamp) by the AELB, and the second is for the Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Maxmimus Ongkili’s decision to reject their appeal against the decision.

Lynas Corporation confirmed earlier today that it had received a TOL from government regulators, paving the way for it to fire up its controversial rare earth plant.

Opponents have called the RM2.5 billion project “the world’s largest radioactive waste dump” despite the Sydney-based firm’s insistence that radiation would be at very low levels as “it will break down and alpha particles will release very strong radiation into the food chain.”

Lynas cleared its final major hurdle in June 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 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 meeting.

Lynas had 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.”

Unprecedented public anger against the Lynas plant in Kuantan has been fertilising Malaysia’s green movement and could affect voter sentiment ahead of key national polls that must be called soon.

Earlier this year, thousands of people gathered for a peaceful demonstration in Kuantan calling on the government to stop the plant from being fired up.

The company said that the issuance of the TOL would enable Lynas to commence the transport of rare earth concentrate and to complete all necessary steps to prepare for first feed to kiln, which is expected in October.

Last week, five Kuantan residents made headway in their last-ditch bid to stop Lynas Corp from firing up its plant after they got the High Court’s nod to challenge the science, technology and innovation minister’s decision to award a TOL to the Australian miner.

In a separate statement today AELB said the TOL would be valid for a period of two years effective September 3.






Time is running out for BN. They have to go ahead before the GE. They know they definitely will be voted out, so, to dig as much as possible now. Najib & gang will try to delay until the last second, just you wait & see.

There is only one way to stop Lynas. Vote BN out and PR government can cancel the license. If we have to pay compensation, investigate, freeze and seize all the corruption money in and outside the country. If necessary, PR government must seek two third majority in Parliment to ensure they carry out as promised. Otherwise, we will vote them out 5 years later. We must make those people accountable for their actions.
