BN is Bersih! Bersih is Kotor! BN = Barisan Neraka!

Anwar says BN acting like Hitler, Stalin

PETALING JAYA, April 30 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today accused the Barisan Nasional (BN) government of emulating the likes of World War II dictators Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin for blaming the chaos at Saturday’s Bersih rally on the “innocent masses who are now deemed criminals.”
The opposition leader referred to statements by BN leaders and coverage by media linked to the ruling coalition, specifically pointing to yesterday’s New Sunday Times’ front-page headline “A day of shame”
“We shall not be intimidated by continuous lies spawned by the state and Umno-controlled media. This is the classic response of authoritarian regimes. Innocent masses, victims of oppression, now deemed as criminals.
“Just like in the time of Hitler, Stalin and the dictatorship in Myanmar previously, the ones who protest are criminals, the oppressors are clean from any allegations,” the PKR de facto leader told a press conference.
The former deputy prime minister said “the way Umno-BN reacted to 300,000 people who gathered with courage and determination, representing the sentiment of millions, was disappointing.”
“April 28, 2012, shall go down in the nation’s history as Hari Merdeka Rakyat, the people’s independence. Their message cannot be mistaken. A free country cannot be enslaved anymore,” he added.
The crowd at the electoral reform movement’s third rally in just over four years was larger than a previous gathering held on July 9 last year where a clampdown by the government saw Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s administration being widely condemned by the international press.
The prime minister soon announced a raft of reforms including a parliamentary select committee on electoral improvements and the Peaceful Assembly Act that came into force on Monday.
But the findings of the panel were criticised for being cosmetic, leading to Saturday’s planned sit-in at Dataran Merdeka, which police say drew up to 50,000 and was the first major test for the assembly law the Umno president said would allow public gatherings in accordance with “international norms.”

There is one Uncle I know.
Each time we meet, he will praise BN to the high heavens and say, 'BN is cleaner than the robe of the priest...'

1Malaysia = Police First. Civilians not important lah

Despite injuries on all sides, police were the victims at Bersih 3.0 rally on Saturday, says Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

Najib told a press conference late last night after the Umno supreme council meeting in Kuala Lumpur, "We must look at the proper perspective. In general, the police were the victims. Violence was aimed at the police."

Najib, in response to a question on allegations that several journalists who were covering the protest had been targeted by police, said, "The problem is when facing mob psychology, the police are also under pressure. Their colleagues have been beaten and their car overturned. It is not just you (journalists), the police have also suffered." NONE
The premier assured that if the police had crossed the line in their handling of journalists who were covering the rally - the biggest in recent history - its Internal Affairs Department will take due action.

Najib said, "If police had overstepped (in dealing) with journalists, we will investigate and we will take action. We will not cover anything up, I am also concerned about the journalists who had worked during the Bersih protest."

Police brutality at its best = Najib's best democracy

April 29, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, April 29 — Yesterday’s Bersih rally may undermine Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s image as a reformist and delay polls expected by June, according to initial foreign media reports after police fired water cannon at protestors who defied a court order barring the public from Dataran Merdeka. The tear gas has barely settled after at least 25,000, more than last July’s rally for free and fair elections, turned up for the planned sit-in, and were forcibly dispersed after some broke through the barricade around the historic square.

“Police fired tear gas and chemical-laced water at thousands of protesters demonstrating for cleaner elections, potentially undermining Prime Minister Najib Razak’s efforts to present himself as a political reformer with elections months away,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

Several newswires, picked up by major newspapers globally, also took the same line, with Reuters reporting that police action raised “the risk of a political backlash that could delay national polls which had been expected as early as June.”

“The protest presents a delicate challenge for Najib. The violence could carry risks for Prime Minister Najib Razak if it is seen as unjustified... Najib’s approval rating tumbled after July last year when police were accused of a heavy handed response to the last major electoral reform rally,” it reported.

Agence France-Presse also said that “the rally poses a dilemma for Najib, who since last year’s crackdown has sought to portray himself as a reformer, launching a campaign to repeal authoritarian laws in a bid to create what he called ‘the greatest democracy’.”

Several reports pointed to the first Bersih rally held just months before the March 2008 elections, which saw Barisan Nasional (BN) record its worst electoral performance ever, ceding its customary two-thirds supermajority in Parliament and five state governments.

Najib took over from Tun Abdullah Badawi a year later, ostensibly to improve on the results and some observers say only a return to two-thirds majority will guarantee he remains Umno president.

“I’m sure this weighs on Prime Minister Najib’s mind. It’s very clear already that the opposition has every intention to piggyback on Bersih,” Bloomberg quoted Joseph Chinyong Liow, associate dean of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Singapore, as saying.

Widespread condemnation from the international press of Putrajaya’s crack down on last July’s Bersih rally saw Najib announce a raft of reforms including a parliamentary select committee on electoral reforms and the Peaceful Assembly Act, a major concession to win back an alienated middle-class.

But the findings of a bipartisan panel have been criticised as cosmetic by civil society and the opposition and yesterday’s planned sit-in was the first major test of the new law regulating demonstrations the BN chief says abides by “international norms”.

The foreign press widely carried global civil liberties watchdog Human Rights Watch’s criticism of the government, saying it showed “contempt for its people’s basic rights and freedoms.”

“Despite all the talk of ‘reform’ over the past year, we’re seeing a repeat of repressive actions by a government that does not hesitate to use force when it feels its prerogatives are challenged,” said Phil Robertson, its deputy Asia director.

Singapore’s Straits Times also reported that “while both police and protesters are blaming each other for the mayhem... it is undoubtedly a public relations disaster” for Najib, although the island-state itself barred Malaysians from holding a simultaneous sit-in there. “The political fallout may be severe, going by past precedents. The size of yesterday’s crowd, easily in the tens of thousands, also surpassed expectations. That sends a grim message to the Prime Minister who had worked hard to regain the support of the middle-class urban electorate,” the newspaper reported.

But the most damning articles have come out of Australia, whose independent senator Nicholas Xenophon was caught in the tear gas crossfire
 while observing proceedings.

Invited by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as part of an international fact-finding mission on electoral practices in Malaysia, he said that Canberra must rethink its relationship with Putrajaya.

“I wonder whether the Australian government has been mute about human rights issues... by virtue of our reliance on the refugee swap deal.

“It raises serious questions over how authoritarian it is,” he said in a statement that was reported across several Australian newspapers, referring to plans to swap 800 asylum seekers with 4,000 processed refugees from Malaysia.

Polis samseng ada senjata, 'perusuh' tanpa senjata

BERSIH Live Report

BERSIH 3.0: Tembakan air dan gas pemedih mata


9.20pm Ketua Polis Negara Tan Sri Haji Ismail Omar berharap petugas "yang dicederakan perusuh" segera sembuh dan mendapat rehat secukupnya sebelum kembali bertugas seperti biasa.

Menurut Facebook polis, beliau berbangga dengan keberanian yang ditunjukkan seluruh anggota polis ketika Op Aman 3.

Kenapa Ismail Omar tidak berharap semua yang cedera disebabkan serangan 'betubi-tubi' polis segera sembuh?

Polis tak berhati perut!


Sementara itu, adakah 1% polis yang korup ialah HAJI ISMAIL OMAR?

Ikutilah cerita di Malaysia Today:

Oleh Veteran Prihatin

IG Ismail Omar telah mengatakan bahawa hanya 1% sahaja dari kalangan anggota dan pegawai polis yang rasuah, dan jenayah indeks telah turun 11.1 % sementara kepuasan orang ramai diatas khidmat polis telah meningkat 70.5 peratus. Beliau kemudiannya memaklumkan bahawa semua ahli Jabatan Pertahanan Awam –JPAM dan RELA akan memakai pakaian seragam polis berserta dengan lencana polis semasa melaksanakan rondaan dan bit bersama anggota polis biasa. (Sebelum dasar ini dapat dilaksanakan dua ahli RELA telah pun dituduh dimahkamah kerana menyebabkan kematian saorang pelajar asing). Seolah olah lawak jenaka IG Ismail tidak mencukupi, beliau pula telah menabalkan anugerah ‘Rakan Polis’ kepada Tan Sri Robert Phang semasa perlancaran mascot baru PDRM yang menyerupai harimau biru sempena hari ulang tahun PDRM yang ke 205. Anih tapi benar.  PDRM sewajarnya tidak memerlukan saekor Mascot harimau biru kerana logo resmi PDRM sendiri menjunjung lambang  “ALLAH” “MUHAMMAD”. Dimana letaknya akidah para muslimat PDRM? Kepada “ALLAH” atau kepada saekor patung harimau biru? Tindakan ini bukan sahaja mencaci kesucian Islam, malah merupakan satu penghinaan kepada anggota dan pegawai polis yang mempamirkan lambang PDRM di pakaian mereka. Dengan penuh ironi, perkembangan ini meletakkan PDRM sebagai bahan ketawa diseluruh dunia. Dalam 205 tahun sejarah PDRM, tidak pernah lagi PDRM diberi penghinaan oleh saorang Ketua Polis Negara yang bergitu bodoh dan dayus yang boleh disamakan dengan lawak Mr. Bean. Kebanggaan PDRM sebagai satu satunya agensi penguatkuasa undang undang, mencegah jenayah, mengekalkan ketenteraman awam serta mengumpul risekan telah hancur oleh tindakan lawak KPNnya. Apa yang ada sekarang adalah saekor harimau biru yang tak bertaring yang dikeji dan ditemplak oleh polis dan juga masyarakat.

Dakwaan IG Ismail bahawa hanya 1% sahaja dari kalangan PDRM yang rasuah  semata matanya adalah suatu helah bagi menutupi hubungan rapatnya dengan penjenayah sejak beliau menjawat jawatan KPN. Sejak beliau memegang jawatan tersebut, kegiatan haram telah berleluasa termasuk kegiatan judi haram, lottery haram, mesin kuda, perlacuran, gangster, dan perdagangkan orang. Kesemua kegiatan haram dan tak bermoral ini telah membantu sindikit bawah tanah yang di dalangi oleh Ta Kin Yan – penasihat jenayah Menteri Dalam Negeri Hishamuddin Hussin Onn- untuk mengumpul kekayaan serta kuasanya keatas kegiatan haram ini. Sindikit ini menyumbangkan sebahagian dari kekayaan mereka ke suatu tabung pusat yang dikawal oleh Ta Kin Yan bagi kepentingan peribadi dan politik Hishamuddin. Sebahagian dari wang yang dikumpul disumbangkan kepada kerja kerja amal sebagai tanggungjawab kepada masyarakat dan juga urusan menyuci wang tersebut yang diketuai oleh mantan KPN Norian Mai yang juga menjadi salah saorang dari ahli lembaga pengarah syarikat Ta Kin Yan. Sebahagian besar dari kutipan ini dimasukkan kedalam tabung khas Hishamuddin bagi menyokong kempen politiknya didalam pilihanraya umum dan juga cita citanya untuk merampas jawatan Timbalan Presiden UMNO dari Mahyuddin. Bagi Hishamuddin janganlah terlalu tinggi merenung dilangit, nanti padah akibatnya. Hanya dengan menggunakan wang haram ini Hishamuddin dapat merealisasikan cita cita politiknya bagi menjadi Perdana Menteri. Ta Kin Yan menganggap IG Ismail Omar tidak lebih dari patung yang boleh digunakan oleh beliau dan Hishamuddin bagi melaksanakan niat jahat mereka tanpa disoal. IG Ismail tidak ada pilihan. Jika beliau engkar arahan mereka (Ta Kin Yan dan Hishamuddin) bermaana menentang Ta Kin Yan yang IG Ismail paksa bodek bagi menjamin kontraknya sebagai KPN akan disambung atas perakuan Ta Kin Yan.

Adalah menjadi satu kelucuan apabila IG Ismail Omar mendakwa bahawa jenayah telah menurun dan keyakinan orang ramai terhadap polis telah meningkat.  Pada hakikatnya  ketakutan orangramai menjadi mangsa jenayah terus menular disegenap lapisan masyarakat. Tiada suatu lorong pun yang selamat. Malah pemilik rumah kian mengupah pengawal keselamatan persendirian bagi melindungi nyawa dan harta mereka. Perompak kini bertambah ganas dan kasar hingga berani menetak mangsa tanpa rasa perikemanusiaan. IG Ismail Omar wajar memberi penjelasan kerana memperdayakan orang ramai dengan angka jenayah yang dimanipulasikan untuk meyakinkan Kerajaan bahawa pihak PDRM telah menepati matlamat NKRA, walhal sebenarnya ianya adalah satu penipuan. Terlalu banyak tekanan telah diberikan bagi mencapai sasaran NKRA, tetapi peranan PDRM seperti mana diperuntukkan dibawah Akta Polis 1967 untuk mengumpul risekan dan maklumat telah diabaikan sama sekali. Jika benar keadaan jenayah dan keselamatan terkawal seperti didakwa oleh Hishamuddin dan IG Ismail, menagapakah pula perlunya Hishamuddin dan IG Ismail diiring dan dikawal rapat oleh komando polis bersenjatakan senjata automatik setiap kali mereka bergerak di khalayak ramai? Tindakan mereka sendiri merupakan suatu pembelotan kepada masyarakat yang Negara ini aman damai. Ini adalah suatu pengkhianatan kepada keyakinan yang mereka pura pura tegakkan atau mungkin mereka takut dengan bayang bayang mereka sendiri.

Pengiktirafan Robert Phang sebagai ‘Rakan Polis’ adalah suatu penghinaan kepada pasukan polis dan juga Negara. Diketahui umum bahawa Robert Phang adalah saorang penyangak dari Sabah. Setiap pegawai kanan polis, baik yang bersara atau yang masih berkhidmat mengetahui bahawa Robert Phang telah cuba sedaya upayanya untuk menyusupi rantaian pegawai kanan polis dengan tujuan menjadi orang perantaraan polis dan sindikit jenayah. Peranannya sebagai orang tengah bukan sahaja terbatas kepada polis tetapi juga meliputi syarikat syarikat yang diberi tender bagi melaksanakan projek dibawah Kementerian Dalam Negeri. Robert Phang  berjaya menyusupi teras tunggak kerajaan  hingga dilantik sebagai ahli dalam Suruhanjaya Pencegah Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM)- suatu tindakan yang menghina institusi yang sering menegakkan integriti dan ketelusan. Walaubagaimana pun tembelang Robert Phang telah terdedah. Perlantikannya didalam SPRM hanya sejenak sahaja dan terpaksa meletak jawatan tersebut dengan penuh keaiban setelah beliau terlibat dalam suatu cubaan untuk menyogok Ketua Setia Usaha Kementerian Dalam Negeri dengan RM20,000. Rasuah ini adalah sebagai suapan kepada Ketua Setia Usaha (KSU) Kementerain Dalam Negeri meluluskan sepenuhnya bayaran kontrak berjumlah RM1 billion untuk memasang rangkaian komunikasi PDRM dengan menggunakan teknologi Motorola APCO 25 yang sudah lapuk. Projek ini telah diberi kepada syarikat Master Plan Consulting Sdn. Bhd., sebuah syarikat milik keluarga Tan Sri Abd. Aziz Yusof, Pengerusi Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya  yang juga mantan Ketua Setia Usaha Kementerian Dalam Negeri. Walaupun syarikat ini didaftarkan dibawah Raja Azlina binti raja Abdul Jalil dan Ahmad Firdaus bin Abd. Halim, mereka sebenarnya adalah proxi Tan Sri  Abd. Aziz Yusof dan anak anaknya. Syarikat Master Plan Consulting telah diberi projek bagi memasang system laporan polis (police reporting system-PRS) yang dibahagikan dalam tiga fasa dan juga unit pusat risekan  (CIU) yang kesemuanya bernilai RM136.8 million. Projek ini seterusnya di subkontrakkan kepada Asiasoft (M) Sdn Bhd sebuah anak syarikat Asiasoft (Singapura) yang dimiliki oleh dua bekas pegawai Angkatan Udara Israel.

Perlakuan Robert Phang cuba menyogok Ketua Setia Usaha Kementerian Dalam Negeri menyokong kebenaran bahawa beliau adalah orang tengah bagi syarikat gergasi seperti Motorola dan Master Plan Consulting untuk menyampaikan ‘pelincir’ kepada orang orang penting kerajaan bagi mempercepatkan pembayaran keatas projek yang diberi.  Adalah menjadi suatu penghinaan bahawa bagi suatu kontrak yang bernilai RM1 billion, sogokan yang cuba diberi kepada KSU hanyalah RM20,000 sahaja manakala mantan KSU Tan Sri Abd. Aziz telah menyapu berpuluh juta Ringgit semasa menjadi KSU hasil dari projek projek polis yang diberi kepada syarikat anak anak nya, Master Plan Consulting. Peliknya selepas bersara beliau dilantik pula sebagai Pengerusi Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya. Tepat dan kena pada masanya apabila BERSIH mendesak Tan Sri Abd. Aziz Yusof meletak jawatan dari Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya. Jelas beliau bukan orang yang layak untuk menerajui Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya memandangkan ciri ciri integriti dan perwatakannya yang tercemar dengan penuh ketidakjujuran, penyangak, keji  dan penipuan. Perlakuan Robert Phang juga menghina kedudukan KSU Kementerian Dalam Negeri yang sangat dihormati. Mentang mentang Tan Sri Abd. Aziz Yusof, mantan KSU boleh dibeli oleh Robert Phang, beliau juga menganggapkan bahawa Tan Sri Mahmood Adam juga boleh disogok sewenang wenangnya. Siasatan keatas perlakuan rasuah Robert Phang telah dijalankan oleh SPRM, tetapi oleh kerana hubungan dan pengaruh rapat beliau  dengan orang orang besar, SPRM terpaksa menggugurkan tuduhan terhadap beliau. Bergitulah angkara dasar pendakwaan memilih atau penindasan yang diamalkan oleh Pendakwa Raya Ghani Patail. Atau mungkin Ghani Patail takut bahawa Robert Phang akan mendedahkan segala kegiatan rasuahnya. Jika kesnya diteruskan sudah jelas banyak rahsia akan terbongkar dan tali barut tali barut Robert Phang akan didedahkan.

Sebelum ini Robert Phang telah mengancam pegawai polis yang menyelia projek Motorola supaya cepat meluluskan sistem rangkaian komunikasi yang dipasang supaya bayaran sepenuhnya kepada Master Plan Consulting dapat dijelaskan. Apabila pegawai polis berkenaan enggan meluluskannya seperti diarahkan oleh Robert Phang, kerana sistem tersebut tidak berfungsi, pegawai berkenaan telah diberi amaran yang beliau akan ditukarkan. Enam bulan kemudian amaran Robert Phang menjadi kenyataan apabila semua pegawai polis yang terlibat dalam projek Motorola tersebut telah ditukarkan oleh IG Ismail Omar ke jawatan yang tidak ada kaitan dengan kepakaran mereka. Walaubagaimana pun IG Ismail Omar telah memaksa pegawai lain supaya meluluskan projek Motorola tersebut walaupun ianya tidak menepati spesifikasi yang ditetapkan. Kini ianya menjadi gajah putih yang tidak boleh diguna. Pihak SPRM sewajarnya menyiasat perkara ini dan mengenengahkan mereka yang bersekongkol dengan Robert Phang. Ini menunjukkan betapa terpengaruhnya Robert Phang hingga beliau boleh memberi tekanan keatas IG Ismail Omar. Tetapi sebenarnya Robert Phang hanya menjadi orang suruhan Ta Kin Yan dan juga badan badan korporat lain yang ingin menggunakan ‘khidmat khas’ beliau. Sewajarnya Robert Phang di beri anugerah ‘Musuh Utama Negara’. Tepatlah kata pepatah orang bodoh senentiasa mencari orang yang lebih bodoh untuk ia dikagumi. Anihnya bagaimana orang yang lebih bodoh boleh jadi KPN?

Dikatakan hari ulang tahun ke 205 PDRM tahun ini telah disambut dengan bergitu gilang gemilang di Dataran Merdeka Kuala Lumpur menjelang 25 Mac 2012. Ianya dimulakan dengan pertunjukan gemilang bunga api. Mascot harimau biru dilaporkan telah ditempah dengan harga RM1.2 juta dan keseluruhan perbelanjaan perayaan tersebut berjumlah RM8 juta. Majlis yang serba mewah ini telah memakan belanja yang bergitu besar disebabkan oleh persediaan yang bergitu lama selama dua minggu termasuk bayaran sewaan khemah  berharga RM3 juta. Diketahui umum bahawa pihak  Kementerian Dalam Negeri atau pun pihak Perbendaharaan Malaysia sama sekali tidak akan meluluskan atau memperuntukkan sejumlah besar belanjawan untuk membiayai majlis yang serba mewah seperti ini lebih lebih lagi pertunjukan bunga api yang langsung tidak ada impak positif dalam hubungan polis dan orang ramai. Persoalannya sekarang bagaimana pihak polis mampu membiayai majlis yang bergitu mewah?  Kini ujud perbualan dikalangan pegawai polis bahawa majlis ulang tahun hari polis telah ditaja oleh sindikit haram yang dikepalai oleh Ta Kin Yan yang hendak membalas jasa polis kerana memberi perlindungan kepada kegiatan haram mereka. Juga dikatakan Ta Kin Yan telah membantu IG Ismail Omar membina rumah banglo di Shah Alam bernilai RM4 juta.  IG Ismail Omar juga dilaporkan telah membeli satu lot tanah banglo yang bernilai RM1 juta berdekatan dengan PULAPOL. Secara umumnya sesaorang pegawai kerajaan, khasnya saorang KPN yang belum pun khidmat sampai dua tahun, jelas tidak mampu membeli sekeping tanah banglo bernilai RM1 juta. Secara kesimpulannya 1% anggota polis yang rasuah yang dimaksudkan oleh IG Ismail Omar adalah beliau sendiri seperti pepatah Inggeris - ikan mula busok di kepala. IG Ismail Omar juga wajar dihadapkan ke Jawatankuasa Khas Parlimen untuk memberi penjelasan bagaimana wang tunai bagi tujuan operasi khas Cawangan Khas sejumlah RM20 juta telah lenyap. Oleh kerana wang ini adalah wang rakyat beliau wajar memberi penjelasan sama ada wang tersebut telah habis kerana berpoya poya atau pegawai dalam Cawangan Khas yang telah menyalahgunakannya.

Bercerita tentang polis rasuah, ada saorang yang tidak ada tandingannya didunia. The RM20 million cop! Itulah dia Ramli Yusof bekas Pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersial, Polis Diraja Malaysia yang mana menjadi KPN adalah impiannya sejak dahulu lagi. Tetapi impiannya hancur lerai apabila pihak SPRM menghadapkan beliau ke mahkamah diatas kes rasuah kerana beliau tidak dapat memberi justifikasi bagaimana beliau mampu memperolehi wang tunai dan aset yang bergitu banyak sebagai penjawat awam. Walaupun telah bersara dari perkhidmatan, impiannya untuk menjadi KPN masih bermarak kerana Anuar Ibrahim, pemimpin de facto PKR, telah berjanji bahawa sekiranya beliau (Anuar Ibrahim) menjadi Perdana Menteri, beliau akan lantik Ramli Yusof sebagai KPN. Sudah tentu ini ada muslihat besar Anuar Ibrahim sehinggakan beliau berjanji melantik Ramli Yusof sebagai KPN! Sebenarnya Ramli Yusoflah orangnya yang mendedahkan kepada Anuar Ibrahim bahawa IGP ketika itu-Tan Sri Rahim Nor- yang telah menumbuk beliau mengakibatkan mata beliau bengkak semasa ditahan di Bukit Aman. Tetapi sebaliknya pula Ramli Yusof yang telah mengarahkan saorang pegawai supaya menutup muka Anuar Ibrahim dengan kain dan kemudiannya menghasut Tan Sri Rahim Nor memukul Anuar Ibrahim. Semasa kejadian ini berlaku mereka yang menyaksikannya ialah Yaacob Amin, Pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah (JSJ) ketika itu dan Ramli Yusof sendiri yang merupakan  Timbalan Pengarah JSJ ketika itu. Sepatutnya Yaacob Amin dan Ramli Yusof wajar dituduh kerana menghasut bersekali dengan Tan Sri Rahim Nor kerana menyebabkan kecederaan keatas Anuar Ibrahim. Oleh kerana Tan Sri Rahim Nor telah mengaku salah diatas perbuatan itu, maka Yaacob Amin dan Ramli Yusof terlepas dari dituduh. Kalaulah kes ini berterusan dengan pembicaraan sudah jelas Yaacob Amin dan Ramli Yusof akan terlibat sama kerana melakukan jenayah bersumpah bohong atau melindungi perlakuan jenayah. Sebenarnya pertuduhan terhadap Yaacob Amin dan Ramli Yusof boleh diteruskan oleh Ketua Pendakwa Raya Ghani Patail kerana dalam kesalahan jenayah tidak ujud had masa. Kini Ramli Yusof berpura pura menunjukkan yang beliau tidak bersalah dan telah dianiayai oleh SPRM. Kalau tidak impiannya untuk menjadi KPN sudah menjadi kenyataan. Ramli Yusof boleh jadi KPN.Tetapi sebelum beliau boleh menjadi KPN beliau wajar melihat dari dalam dirinya. Jika beliau tidak mampu mengurus tiga bekas isteri isterinya bagaimana pula hendak mengurus pasukan yang terdiri dari 120,000 pegawai dan anggota lelaki dan wanita. Bertaubatlah brother.

Ini adalah julung kalinya dalam sejarah 205 tahun, pihak PDRM telah menyimpang dari tradisinya mengadakan perbarisan resmi bagi memperingati hari ulang tahun polis yang lazimnya diadakan di Pusat Latihan Polis Jalan Semarak Kuala Lumpur-suatu tempat nostalgia dimana pegawai polis dilatih untuk menjadi penguatkuasa undang undang. Tidak lama lagi ikon mercu tanda ini akan lenyap dari sejarah polis kerana setiap inci puast latihan ini telah dijual dan diswastakan kepada syarikat MKland untuk pembangunan komersial. Dimasa yang lampau ramai pemaju telah cuba mengambil aleh satu satunya ‘ lombong emas’  yang tinggal di ibu Negara Kuala Lumpur. Mantan Menteri2  Dalam Negeri dan juga Perdana Menteri yang lepas telah menolak sekeras kerasnya sebarang percubaan oleh mana mana pihak swasta atau pemaju untuk mengambil tanah PULAPOL sebagai mengiktiraf sumbangan dan pengorbanan anggota polis didalam mempertahankan kedaulatan Negara. Inilah tempatnya dimana pahlawan dan wira Negara dilatih untuk menentang ancaman komunis dan juga jenayah sehingga tercedera dan lumpuh. Namun kini ini semua telah berubah apabila Najib Razak memegang jawatan Perdana Menteri dengan RM (Rosmah Mansor) sebagai Perdana Menteri Kanan. Sejumlah RM50 juta telah dibayar kepada RM sebagai jaminan bahawa PULAPOL akan dijual kepada MKland. Serupa juga dengan pengswastaan Pangkalan Tentera Udara Sg. Besi oleh 1MD. RM yang mendalangi penjualan Pangkalan Tentera tersebut. Oleh itu jika sesuatu kebuntuan tidak dapat diselesaikan, carilah RM. Beliau tahu apa nak buat. Kalau tidak takkan boleh beli cicin belian berharga RM70 juta. Ini semuanya rasuah dalam bentuk halus dan pihak SPRM tidak terdaya untuk menyiasat dengan memberi alasan mereka tidak mempunyai cukup bukti untuk tuduh. IG Ismail Omar pula nampakanya tidak ada bola untuk menentang atau mencegah apa yang dipanggil ‘Rogolan PULAPOL’ oleh tindakan keji orang orang yang hanya mementingkan diri sendiri tanpa memikirkan pengorbanan anggota polis. IG Ismail Omar juga nampaknya telah hilang kawalan dan perintahannya dalam Pasukan. Beliau telah memperkenalkan dasar baru yang mematikan semangat  pegawai rendah polis. Kesemua anggota pangkat rendah kini tidak berpuas hati terhadap dasar IG Ismail Omar yang membenarkan pengambilan pangkat Sarjan secara langsung dari kalangan bekas anggota tentera. Ini secara langsung melucutkan peluang satu ratus anggota polis berpangkat Kopral untuk dinaikkan kepangkat Sarjan. Tindakan ini serupalah dengan peribahasa Melayu ‘Kera dihutan disusukan, anak sendiri mati kelaparan. Wahai pahlawanku, sedar dan bangkitlah untuk menentang kecurangan dan durjana ini. Masa depan Negara dan Pasukan adalah ditangan anda. Janganlah ditipu. Biarkan sibodoh berkelakuan dungu seperti Pa Pandir dengan labu labunya. Biarkan. Biarkan.

Bercerita tentang sidungu, IG Ismail sepatutnya sedar bahawa beliau juga telah menaikkan pangkat sidungu sebagai Ketua Polis Negeri. Seperti yang dijangka Ketua Polis Perak, DCP Shukri Dahlan telah mencemar amanah yang diberikan kepadanya. Sepertimana peribahasa Melayu alah biasa kekal biasa dan kalau anjing tak makan tahi, dapat hidu pun jadilah. Semasa beliau menjadi Ketua Polis Terengganu dahulu beliau menjalin hubungan sulit dengan pegawai wanitanya yang dianggap dayang dayangnya untuk menghiburkan beliau selepas waktu pejabat. Beliau telah diberi nasihat supaya berkelakuan baik seperti mana yang diharapkan sebagai pegawai atasan polis. Apabila beliau ditukarkan ke Perak sebagai Ketua Polis beliau terus dengan perangainya mengekploitasi pegawai pegawai wanita bagi memuaskan nafsunya. Malangnya pada 11 Apr 2012, beliau telah diberkas oleh pegawai penguatkuasa majlis agama Islam Pahang kerana berkhalwat dengan saorang Inspektor wanita polis di dalam bilik hotel di Cameron Highlands. Inspektor wanita ini bertugas sebagai Pegawai Staf bersama sama DCP Shukri Dahlan di Ibu Pejabat Polis Negeri, Ipoh, Perak. Perbuatannya serupalah peribahasa Melayu ‘Seperti haruan makan anak’. Agak pelik bagaimana ‘haruan’ seperti ini diberi amanah dan kepercayaan untuk memerintah empat ribu anggota dan pegawai dibawahnya. Itulah PDRM kini. Belum selesai lagi bagi IG Ismail Omar mengatasi pemasalahan moral dikalangan pegawai atasannya, timbul pula cerita yang Ketua Polis Kedah DCP Ahmad Ibrahim mempunyai skandal kerana menjalin hubungan sulit dengan isteri salah saorang pegawai kanannya. Jika KPN pincang dari segi rasuah, Ketua Ketua Polis beliau juga pincang dari segi moral. Jadi jangan salahkan orang ramai jika mereka tidak percayakan polis untuk membanteras jenayah, apa tah lagi bagi melindungi anak anak gadis, isteri, cucu perempuan atau pun nenek mereka.

Cops ready to create 'chaos', clampdown on Bersih

26 April 2012 | Last updated at 09:02PM 

Police will take necessary action if assembly held at Dataran Merdeka: Hishammuddin

Putrajaya: Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein said the police would take the necessary action from the security aspects if the organisers of a planned rally at Dataran Merdeka this weekend are adamant about proceeding with it.

"We have already compromised and offered alternative venues to them...but if they choose to be stubborn, it will be up to the police (to take the necessary action," he said.
He said it was the police's responsibility to ensure public order was not threatened by anyone.
"I hope the organisers can assemble at the alternative venues offered in the spirit of political transformation and changes brought about by the government. As such, all parties should contribute towards building a healthy and mature democracy in the country," he told reporters here today.
Asked on the actions police might take if the rally planned by non-governmental organisations with the support of opposition parties goes ahead at Dataran Merdeka, Hishammuddin said:"It will depend on the actions of the organisers."

He said police had been instructed to be fully prepared to face any eventuality based on past experiences on similar assemblies.
Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has denied permission to the organisers to hold the assembly at Dataran Merdeka citing that the square is reserved for national events and instead offered Stadium Titiwangsa, the Kuala Lumpur Badminton Stadium and Kuala Lumpur Football Stadium as alternative venues.
Hishammuddin added that he hoped the organisers of the rally could accept the alternative venues as there was still time to switch locations. -- Bernama

Be prepapred, peace-loving people of Malaysia.

Putrajaya has spoken.

It will not protect the people.

Top guns of Election Cheats (EC) belong to Umno?!

He said that he had “solid evidence” to back his claims on the duo’s Umno membership.

“I know (Abdul) Aziz is an Umno member, his division, and his membership number. It’s the one and only EC in the world where both the chairperson and deputy are officially politicians who can contest in elections,” hit out Saifuddin.  “They should give up (their Umno membership), there shouldn’t be even an ounce of prejudice and bias that the EC is in favour of any political party,” he was quoted as saying in an exclusive interview with the daily yesterday.

Unless Abdul Aziz and Wan Ahmad deny the allegations by the end of the day, Saifuddin threatened to reveal the Umno divisions where the duo are members.

azlanSaifuddin said that they should have let go of their membership immediately after being entrusted to head the commission, stressing that that the EC should only prioritise the needs of the people.

He pointed out that Dewan Rakyat speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia had resigned as the Kota Marudu Umno chief when the latter was appointed to the post.

“The positions (of the chairperson and deputy chairperson of the EC) are not a political appointment, the Agong appoints them (but) they are still valid Umno members, I want them to deny (it if it isn’t true),” said Saifuddin.

Abdul Aziz took over from Ab Rashid Ab Rahman as the EC chief at the end of 2008 after the 12th general election in March that year, while Wan Ahmad was appointed in 2007.

Customers and gang robbed Klang used car dealer!

me out."

She said another man, who identified himself as a ‘Tiga Line' member, forced her to produce a letter saying that the company owed its customers RM200,000 in deposits and for the money to be repaid to the customers present, with the balance to the gang for "services rendered".

About seven customers then came to collect their deposits, and the company director said some of them claimed more than the deposits they had made and some even claimed twice.

Threatened by the mob, the company director and her staff had no choice but to pay the intruders, though she managed to get all who came to put their thumb prints on papers confirming they had received the cash.

"I wanted to trap them, and surprisingly they cooperated."

'One attacker has gun in his waistband'

Malaysiakini was furnished with copies of CCTV recordings showing the incident that took place on April 7, the police report lodged by the director, as well as copies of the receipts and car booking documentation.

NONEIn the video, the assailants, some armed with what seemed to be baseball bats and car steering wheel locks, can be seen threatening the staff, ransacking the office and carting away boxes and other goods. A company staff interviewed by Malaysiakini said one of the men had a handgun tucked in his waistband.

"He had a gun, but he only pointed at it (he did not draw out the weapon)."

The company director was also shown being manhandled, thrown against a pillar, beaten and kicked by the assailants, in addition to being forced to sign a letter.

She explained that the customers were upset that the used car dealership took too long to heed a Consumer Claims Tribunal order to reimburse its non-refundable booking deposits.

This was because the bank loans the customers had qualified for fell short of the price they had agreed for the purchase of the used cars. Being unable to pay the difference, they were forced to cancel their purchases.

The receipts and booking agreements signed and agreed to by both parties state that deposits are non-refundable - but the customers insisted on repayment and took the matter to the tribunal, which ruled in their favour and instructed the company to pay up.

'Company has right to appeal'

The receipts and booking agreements furnished to Malaysiakini state that the deposits paid for the purchase of the used cars are "non-refundable", with the signatures apparently inked by the customers.

Though conceding that the company may have been late in reimbursing some of the deposits as ordered to by the tribunal, the company director justified this on grounds that some of the tribunal rulings were made ex-parte - without their presence - and the company was in the process of appealing the decisions.

"It is our right to refer back tribunal decisions made under Form 8, without our presence at the hearing. Only decisions made under Form 10 are those where we are called to present our defence."

She also argued that even for decisions heard before the tribunal with both parties present, the company still had the right of appeal to the High Court.

The company director described the attack as unlawful and criminal.

"They have no right to take action against me, no right to ransack and rob my company. Even with late payment, only a magistrate can take action," she lamented.

As a result of the attack and threats made against her company, she said her staff - most of whom are women - were severely traumatised and now fear for their safety.

A police report has been lodged on the matter and the director claimed that until now, after more than two weeks have passed, no action has been taken by the authorities.

When contacted by Malaysiakini, the police officer in charge of the case confirmed that a report had been lodged and that the matter was under investigation.

He however declined further comment on the case because the "investigation is still going on".

"Certainly, Umno and BN don't want this to happen because it is sinful," he said, adding that a candidate winning a seat through such a manner is "haram" (forbidden).

Six gathering points

The police has disallowed Bersih 3.0 sit-in on grounds of safety while the Kuala Lumpur City Hall, which maintains Dataran Merdeka, has objected to the usage of the iconic location for political dissent.

The Bersih 2.0 steering committee is however adamant on assembling at Dataran Merdeka.

The committee has also listed the gathering points for would-be protesters - Masjid Negara, Masjid Jamek, Pasar Seni, Masjid India, Brickfields and Jalan Sultan - before they proceed to Dataran Merdeka.

Bersih 3.0, among others, is calling for the resignation of the Election Commission chief for his failure to clean up the electoral roll before the upcoming election, which is speculated to be held in the second quarter of this year.

Pity him. He's caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Why Bersih 3.0? Because EC = ELECTION CHEAT

Lecturer Wong Chin Huat said a constitutional safeguard against gerrymandering was first loosened and subsequently removed completely.—File pic
PETALING JAYA, April 25 — The Election Commission’s (EC) drawing of electoral boundaries makes a rural voter worth an average of six urban voters, biasing elections towards Barisan Nasional (BN) as it is stronger in the countryside, according to poll analysts.
Election watchdog Tindak Malaysia founder PY Wong said the ruling coalition won 112 out of the smallest 139 federal seats in Election 2008, giving it simple majority in Parliament with just 18.9 per cent of the popular vote. The seats have not been changed for the next general election.
“Something is seriously wrong when you can win 50.4 per cent of Parliament with just 18.9 per cent of the votes,” he told a forum here last night.
Wong said malapportionment — unequally-sized constituencies — and gerrymandering — manipulation of electoral boundaries — also allowed the ruling coalition to rack up 62 of the smallest seats with just 6.2 per cent of the popular vote.

He pointed out how the smallest federal seat was Putrajaya, won by BN, with 6,008 voters, while Kapar, won by PKR, had over 112,000.
Another analyst, Wong Chin Huat, pointed out that the smallest 112 seats only represented 33.8 per cent of the electorate.
The Bersih steering committee member said this allowed for the lopsided results in 2004, where BN won 90.9 per cent of Parliament with just 63.9 per cent of the popular vote, while Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail was PKR’s sole MP despite gaining 8.4 per cent of votes cast.
“This means one vote for BN was worth 26 votes for PKR,” he said.
Chin Huat said malapportionment and gerrymandering have been made easier after a constitutional provision, which stated the largest and smallest seats may only have a 15 per cent differential, was amended in 1962 to 50 per cent and then abolished completely in 1973.
The lecturer at Monash University, Sunway, said Bersih proposed to solve the rural bias by ensuring that the maximum size of the largest state seat can only be half of the smallest federal seat.
“If they have small rural parliamentary seats, this will only create many urban state seats and give urban voters control of the state governments. By linking Parliament and state seats, you avoid the bias,” he said.
Pakatan Rakyat (PR) denied BN its customary two-thirds supermajority of Parliament at the last general election by capturing 82 federal seats and five state governments.
Although the opposition coalition marginally won the popular vote in Peninsular Malaysia, it only took 80 out of the 166 federal seats available there. But it has now lost six seats as the winning lawmakers have turned independent and support BN in parliament.
Bersih will hold a sit-in rally this weekend to press its demands for electoral reforms despite a parliamentary select committee (PSC) making its recommendations to the EC.

DBKL latest gangsta in town vs citizens @ Dataran

earlier raid, photo above) from Dang Wangi police station and found there was a commotion.

"The protestors were upset because the money was only collected today. They estimate it to be RM200 to RM300," she said.

Fadiah said a DBKL officer-in-charge known as Fuat, who was there with 10 DBKL trucks, told the protestors that they could get their items back tomorrow at the city council's office.

"He said they couldn't return it now as they had to put it in a store first," she said, adding that he did not explain why the donation boxes were taken.

Students vow to continue occupation

Confirming this, Solidariti Mahasiswa Malaysia secretary Haziq Abdul Aziz said Fuat told them he would "try" to identify which officer had taken the donation boxes.

Haziq added that DBKL also confiscated some tents and flags, but the students intend to continue to camp there tonight.

"DBKL won't do anything with so many of us here but we'll see what happens in the morning," he said.

It is understood that about 150 people were at Dataran Merdeka as of 1am this morning.

The donations are shared by two groups which have been camping in the iconic public square at the city centre - the Occupy Dataran movement to reclaim public spaces and university students who are campaigning for free education.

NFC, it's all in the family! NFC, happy renting family

PKR has continued its expose on the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC), this time showing that the company directors have been leasing out their personal properties to NFC for high returns.

NONEA search with the Valuation and Property Services Department showed that two office units used by NFC belong to executive chairperson Mohamad Salleh Ismail and his son and director Wan Shahinur Izran Salleh, PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli (centre in photo) said.

Based on  NFC's financial accounts made public by Rafizi, the units located at Solaris Mont Kiara were rented from the duo at RM28,000 and RM8,240 a month respectively.

The search further established that Izran owns the premises of the Meatworks Restaurant, also in Solaris Mont Kiara.
Meatworks is operated by the Real Food Company, an NFC associate company.

NONE"I do not have detailed financial records for Real Food Company... but I believe Izran (left) also receives lucrative rental payments from the two restaurant premises he owns," Rafizi told a press conference today.
According to Rafizi, the rental of RM8,240 paid to Mohamad Salleh is "too high" for the property which was bought for RM814,500.

"If the property was bought with a 25-year loan, (then) at prevailing interest rates, the monthly installments would be around RM4,800. This means Mohamad Salleh enjoys a yield of 72 percent monthly...," he said.

The property search shows that the NFC-related properties owned by Izran at Solaris Mont Kiara were bought for RM14.1 million in 2008 and 2010. 

'Money must be recovered'

Rafizi alleged that all this proves there has been “criminal breach of trust”.

He said the duo could have signed a rental contract agreement with NFC and Real Food Company in order to obtain a bank loan to purchase the properties.

"We have maintained from the first day that what is important is the recovery of the money, not whether Shahrizat (should) withdraw from her cabinet post," he said.

NONEShahrizat is the wife of Mohamad Salleh, who runs NFC with their three children. She stepped down as the women, family and community development minister on April 8 when her term as senator expired.

Since the exposes, the government has re-tendered the National Feedlot Centre project and appointed an auditor to probe the matter.

Mohamad Salleh has claimed trial to charges of criminal breach of trust and for allegedly violating the Companies Act.

Taib's son fails to make offer to divorced wife. No $?

written application by Abu Bekir's lawyers

Shahnaz's counsel Rafie Mohd Shafie confirmed, when contacted by Malaysiakini, that there has not been any offer so far.

"If there is nothing forthcoming we will go for trial and we are prepared for that. The other side thinks we do not know his assets, but we know," he said.

The trial has the potential of revealing the real wealth of the Taibs, widely considered as Sarawak's 'first family'.

Besides Rafie, lawyer Akbardin Abdul Kader, who is the solicitor for Shahnaz, also confirmed there was no settlement offer before them.

Mahmud Abu Bekir is represented by Saadiah Din and Zainul Rijal Abu Bakar. They had written to Shahnaz's lawyers asking for a two-week extension as the March 27 deadline had elapsed.

The second deadline ended on 11 days ago without any word - either verbally or written - from Mahmud Abu Bekir's lawyers.

Despite this, Akbardin indicated that their client is still hopeful there would be a proposal from Mahmud Abu Bekir.

Syariah High Court justice Mohamad Abdullah had postponed the hearing of case to May 23, pending outcome of the settlement offer.

Claims worth RM400 million
Shahnaz is claiming RM100 million in gift and another RM300 million in joint matrimonial assets to resolve the dispute.

She married Mahmud Abu Bekir on Jan 9, 1992, and the couple have an 18-year-old son.
NONEShahnaz (left) gave a teary testimony last month when she described how she had to undergo physical and mental abuse by Mahmud Abu Bekir.

She also described how her former husband would often leave home, and had brought another woman to her sister-in-law's wedding.

She also told the Syariah High Court that she had related the matter to her then father-in-law, Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib, and her husband's younger brother, but no action was taken by them.

Shahnaz also told the court she did not lodge a police report or a medical report over the abuses so as not to affect her former husband's standing.

The couple were divorced on May 11 last year after Mahmud Abu Bekir pronounced the talak (declaration of divorce) following their separate applications for divorce.

Mahmud Abu Bekir also has another wife, a Russian divorcee.

Umno the 'completely untrue' & 'utter rubbish' party!

For every allegation, there is always a denial.

This is especially so for Umno 'higher-ups' who can do no wrong and are above the law.

Starting from Najib's denial 'Wallahi, Wabillahi, Watallahi (with Allah as my witness), I swear I do not know or have any connection with the Mongolian woman' to the two latest denials - 'utter rubbish' and 'completely untrue' - Umno has become the party in denial and of denials.

Kuala Lumpur city mayor Fuad Ahmad Ismail today said Bersih cannot hold its rally at Dataran Merdeka because it contained political and dissenting elements.

NONE"We stress that the use of Dataran Merdeka was rejected in line with DBKL's (policy to) reject any activities that have similar characteristics such as wanting to give ceramah, having political elements or dissenting elements, this is not the place for it," he told a press conference in Kuala Lumpur today.

Last week, DBKL had rejected Bersih request to hold its rally at Dataran Merdeka on grounds that it was not a national event.

However, Bersih had question why a private company, Nestle was able to hold its anniversary there on March 19 despite it not being a national occasion.

Is McDonald’s Fun Run a ‘national event’, Bersih asks DBKL

April 23, 2012
KUALA LUMPUR, April 23 — Bersih rubbished today Kuala Lumpur City Hall’s (DBKL) rationale for rejecting its request to use Dataran Merdeka for its third rally for free and fair elections scheduled for Saturday, pointing out that companies, NGOs and political parties have used the historic square for minor events.
DBKL had rejected the electoral reform movement’s request last week, saying “events allowed to be held at Dataran Merdeka are only those of a national level, such as National Day, Federal Territories Day and other events which are of similar standing.”

But the coalition of 84 NGOs told a press conference today that in the past year companies such as fast-food giant McDonald’s have used the landmark for events. “So what is the basis to reject us? Our stand is that Dataran Merdeka belongs to the people,” said steering committee member Maria Chin Abdullah.
Bersih listed McDonald’s Olympic Day Fun Run (July 2011), OCBC Cycle Malaysia (October 2011), Achilles Formula Drift Malaysia (December 2011), Barisan Nasional Youth Ride Fest (February 2012) and the World Kidney Day Run (March 2012) as events that have been held at Dataran Merdeka.

The journalist was about to ask Najib the reasons why he was dodging queries about the case, but the press conference which lasted less than ten minutes, ended abruptly and the premier left.

The French court held its first hearing last week before judge Roger Le Loire in a three hour session where a three member Suaram team presented their statement and list of witnesses.

Le Loire accepted the team's presentation submitted by Suaram director Kua Kia Soong (above), secretariat member Cynthia Gabriel and lawyer Fadiah Nadwa Fikri at the Paris tribunal Grande Instance.

Gabriel said that the hearing was to confirm Suaram's complaint and reaffirmed the need for a judicial investigation into the RM7.3 billion deal in 2002.

The deal had allegedly led to the gruesome of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu by military explosives in a jungle clearing in Shah Alam between October 19-20, 2006.

Two of Najib's former bodyguards and political analyst - a close ally of the premier - Abdul Razak Baginda were charged for her gruesome murder but the latter was acquitted without his defense being called.
Razak's name has cropped up again in the French inquiry as the investigative judges are looking into two companies - both linked to him - to which French giant shipyard builder DCNS had allegedly funnelled illegal commissions.

Najib has denied any involvement with the case and has gone as far as to swear on the Quran at a mosque that he does not know Altantuya.

Meanwhile, Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi made an about turn last week and snubbed the French inquiry although he had earlier said he was willing to testify.

Refusing to attend the inquiry on the submarines purchase, Zahid added that the ministry will not be sending any representatives, passing the buck to the Malaysian ambassador to see to the matter.

PKFZ: Teh tak boleh pakai. R Nadeswaran BOLEH!

A press conference called by the Port Klang Authority (PKA) to refute the allegations related to Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal turned into a public relations disaster when the PKA management failed to give satisfactory answers to questions raised by the journalists.

The press conference held at PKA office in Port Klang today began with PKA chairperson Teh Kim Poh's (left) assurance that current Transport Minister Kong Cho Ha had never issued any instruction to PKA not to proceed with the PKFZ court cases or to squirrel away evidence.

"I can swear to you. If you want me to swear anywhere, I can swear. Please tell the truth," said Teh, the former MCA assemblyperson for Pandamaran.

Teh called on all quarters to respect and have trust in the court, and allow due process.

"If the attorney-general wants to charge more people, let him charge," he said.

‘Lee's book is outdated'

Teh also took a swipe at his predecessor Lee Hwa Beng's newly-published book PKFZ: A Nation's Trust Betrayed, describing its content "outdated" as PKFZ has achieved vibrant development under his stewardship in the last six months.

NONEHe even described former transport minister Ong Tee Keat's statement published in Malaysiakini yesterday as "fabrication".

A dispute then broke out when R Nadeswaran, an editor with English daily The Sun, who has been following the PKFZ issue since the scandal was exposed, blasted Teh on why PKA continued to make payments to bondholders although the bonds were issued by KDSB, the turnkey developer of PKFZ.

"You never took the loan, why are you paying back? It is not your money, it is all our taxpayers' money and you don't care about our money?" he asked.

Failing to satisfy Nadeswaran with his explanation, Teh passed the ball to PKA financial manager Adnan Abidin, who could only argue that PKA had signed an undertaking to repay the bonds but declined to reveal details of the grounds that the matter is being heard in court.

azlanNadeswaran also questioned why PKA insisted on making the payment, even though it was against the advice of Skrine & Co, the legal firm engaged by PKA earlier to recover the funds paid to KDSB.

The apparently clueless Adnan  replied that he could not comment on the legal advice, and that he had not read it.

KDSB is a company formerly owned by BN Backbenchers Council chairperson and Bintulu MP Tiong King Sing. It funded the PKFZ development by issuing bonds to four Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs).

Under the agreement, KDSB obtained the funds from the bonds issued and PKA agreed repay RM4.6 billion to the bondholders over a  span of 11 years from 2007 to 2017.

According to Ong, RM3.039 billion is estimated to have been paid to KDSB bondholders to date, with another RM733.37 million due on June 20 this year.

Reporters at the press conference were dumbfounded again when Teh and his colleagues, including PKA general manager Capt David Padman, PKFZ chief executive officer Chia Kon Leong and Adnan, could not state the number of civil suits brought by PKA to recover the taxpayers' money.

"What is this? How do you run the organisation? The CEO is sitting here, the chairman is here but they don't know the status of the cases. How many cases? This is the reflection of the incompetence and the mess we are in because of this," said Nadeswaran.

Teh then scrambled to call PKA legal adviser Fadzilah Surkisah into the meeting to give the answer - which was four.

Another journalist quizzed Teh on why PKA should pay the bondholders when KDSB, which had obtained the funds from the bonds issue, was being sued by PKA for overcharging and non-completion of work.

"I cannot answer this. It is already in the court, let the court case take its course," Teh replied, giving the same argument.

Still sourcing independent directors

On Ong's claim that PKA had dismantled all the corporate practices that he implemented in PKFZ to ensure good governance and transparency, Teh claimed that all the practices were still intact.

However when a journalist asked about the fact that currently only one independent director was on the board of PKA, against Ong's decision to appoint three independent directors, or one-third of the 10-member board in order to ensure checks-and-balance in the PKA, Teh again appeared oblivious.

He replied that there was still one vacancy for an independent director before other journalists corrected him that there are actually two vacancies.

"We have actually wanted to (appoint independent directors). (There are) some recommendations from people, but unfortunately the persons refused to accept the appointment, so we are still sourcing now," Teh said.

The journalist then pointed out that the two directors seats had been vacated for more than a year.

After a short pause, Teh replied, "it will be filled up as soon as we able ".

NONETeh and Nadeswaran (right) engaged in another spat when the latter questioned the reason behind PKA's decision to withdraw its complaint to the Bar Council on Rashid Asari & Co - the law firm which was accused of  being in conflict of interest situation in an audit commissioned by Ong.

Teh argued that the Bar Council could still take action against the legal firm, even though the complaint had been withdrawn.

But Nadeswaran continued to press for the reason for the withdrawal of the PKA complaint and Teh ended the spat by confessing, "In that case, I don't know law".

Zahida wanita simpanan Shafie dibayar RM1.5 juta?

Minister implicated in scandal with actress

 KUALA LUMPUR, 18 APRIL, 2012: The driver of Zahida Rafik has exposed a scandal allegedly involving the actress and Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal through a police report he had lodged on March 13, reported Keadilan Daily.

The police report claimed that Shafie had paid Zahida up to RM1.5 million in four months of their “intimate relationship” that has spanned three years.

The police report was lodged by one Noor Azman Azemi, 38, on March 13 at the Ampang police station.

He said he had lodged the report following an accusation by the actress on March 3 that he had absconded with RM200,000.

According to the report, Noor Azman’s relative then gave a copy to Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin, who revealed the contents to reporters at the Parliament lobby today and questioned the source of the minister’s funds.

Zuraida claimed that the actress had received RM58,000 last October, RM112,000 in November and RM330,000 in December, as well as RM510,000 in January this year.

Reading from this, she said Noor Azman claimed to have been assigned by the minister to work as a driver to the actress three years ago.

According to Noor Azman, the minister told him to keep tabs on the actress’ “every movement”.

He also described himself as the “trusted middleman” who helped channel the funds into her personal account.

He further claimed in the report that the minister would secretly meet the actress each week in hotels around Kuala Lumpur.

"At every meeting, (the minister) would hand over RM100,000 to RM200,000... the cash would be taken by me and (the actress) to be credited into (her bank) account in Menara Perkeso, Jalan Ampang," alleged Noor Azman.

He said he had resigned on Feb 29 this year, as he could not manage the pressure of working for the minister.
