Al Fatihah Buat Datuk Mohd Hashim Yahaya

Posted: 27 Aug 2014 01:23 AM PDT

Saya menerima perkhabaran duka mengenai pemergian Datuk Mohd Hashim Yahaya ke rahmatuLlah pada pukul 1.50 petang tadi. Almarhum yang juga mantan Mufti Wilayah Persekutuan merupakan sahabat karib sekian lamanya. Hubungan akrab kami sekeluarga Almarhum dan isteri Ustazah Aminah terjalin sekian lama semenjak mereka di Akademi Pengajian Islam Nilam Puri tatkala memimpin ABIM Kelantan.

Saban tahun pada hari kedua Eidulfitr', kami berdua akan diraikan oleh Qariah Masjid Kubang Semang, Pulau Pinang.

ltizam Almarhum dalam menegaskan yang haq amat mengesani sanubari saya. Tatkala di Penjara Sungai Buloh, Almarhum pernah mengadakan sesi pengajian khas dengan saya mengupas kitab Imam Abu Zahrah “Usul Fiqh”.

Almarhum sering menceritakan pengalaman anak muda miskin dari desa yang menghadapi masalah mengurus pasport untuk ke Kaherah dan tidak pernah merupakan jasa ayahanda saya yang membantu semasa beliau Ahli Parlimen Seberang Perai Tengah pada tahun 1960-an.

Malah masih terngiang pesan Almarhum usai mengimamkan solat hajat serta sewaktu menyampaikan tazkirah ringkas sehari sebelum keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur tanggal 8 Januari 2012 yang lepas, betapa perjuangan ini menuntut kesabaran dan istiqamah, kerana dengan kuasa rakyat sahaja penguasa yang zalim dapat diubah.

Sepanjang berkhidmat dengan kerajaan, Almarhum terkenal dengan inisiatif berterusan dalam usaha meningkatkan mutu dan pengiktiran Pusat Islam (kemudiannya JAKIM) dan Jabatan Mufti Wilayah Persekutuan sewaktu menjawat jawatan Mufti Wilayah Persekutuan.

Sesungguhnya, kami kehilangan seorang sahabat, da’i, alim ulama' yang amat berjasa dalam kegiatan Islam dan da'awah.  Saya mendoakan agar keluarga Almarhum dapat menerima ketentuan Ilahi dengan sabar. Bersama-sama kita mendoakan agar roh Almarhum dicucuri rahmat dan berada di kalangan orang-orang yang soleh.

Sekalung takziah dari kami sekeluarga juga seluruh keluarga besar KEADILAN. Al-Fatihah.

Sultan Selangor Dijangka Temui Wan Azizah

Posted: 25 Aug 2014 03:00 AM PDT

KUALA LUMPUR 25 OGOS: Ketua Umum KEADILAN,  Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim berkata Sultan Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah dijangka menerima menghadap Presiden KEADILAN, Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Ismail selepas menteri besar Selangor berbuat demikian esok.

Ketika ditemui di Mahkamah Kuala Lumpur, Anwar memberitahu pihaknya telah menghantar surat untuk memohon menghadap Sultan Sharafuddin minggu lepas.

Katanya lagi, pihak istana turut mengesahkan menerima surat tersebut, lapor Malaysiakini.

"Istana telah mengakui menerima surat kami tetapi Tuanku perlu melalui proses menerima menghadap dengan menteri besar dahulu dan kemudian Wan Azizah," katanya.

Menurut Anwar lagi, beliau bagaimanapun tidak tahu bila pihak istana akan menemui Wan Azizah.

Menteri Besar Selangor Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim hari ini memaklumkan, beliau akan menghadap sultan Selangor esok berhubung kedudukannya sebagai menteri besar. Sultan telah pulang daripada kunjungan ke Eropah.

Pertemuan itu penting bagi menyelesaikan krisis pentadbiran negeri selepas PAS menarik balik sokongan terhadap Khalid selepas dipecat daripada KEADILAN.

Malaysia’s Anwar dismisses offers of exile abroad

Posted: 25 Aug 2014 02:10 AM PDT

Channel News Asia

Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has rejected offers of asylum abroad ahead of a final appeal in October on a sodomy conviction that could see him jailed, a political aide said Monday (Aug 25)

Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has rejected offers of asylum abroad ahead of a final appeal in October on a sodomy conviction that could see him jailed, a political aide said Monday (Aug 25).

Anwar was convicted and sentenced to five years in prison in March on charges he sodomised a young former male aide, but is free pending a final appeal set for October 28-29. Anwar, 67, has dismissed the case as fabricated by the government to ruin his political career.

The political aide, who asked not to be named, declined further comment but said that a media report Monday on the asylum offers was correct.

The Star newspaper quoted Anwar saying he had received several offers by “foreign leaders” to go overseas but would not accept them. “I met up with a few foreign leaders who advised me to go overseas to escape a possible prison sentence. At my age, they say they cannot imagine seeing me behind bars,” Anwar was quoted as saying. The story did not specify which countries Anwar was speaking of.

Sodomy is punishable by up to 20 years’ jail in the Muslim-majority nation. The accusation surfaced shortly after Anwar led a three-party alliance to unprecedented electoral gains in 2008. A lower court acquitted Anwar in 2012, but an appeals court controversially overturned that verdict in March.

Anwar, a former top leader in Malaysia’s ruling United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), had earlier spent six years in jail on separate sodomy and corruption charges after a power struggle in the late 1990s that saw him expelled from the party. The charges triggered massive protests against the UMNO-led regime. UMNO has governed since independence in 1957, but has seen its support slump over corruption, authoritarian rule and divisive racial policies.

After his release, Anwar joined the fractious opposition, leading it to unprecedented electoral gains.

What are the criteria for male MBs?

Posted: 25 Aug 2014 12:21 AM PDT

Malaysiakini

Najib Abdul Razak's latest slogan 'Endless Possibilities' only applies to men. In Najib's Malaysia, women face 'Endless Objections'. The latest victim is Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail. Her plan to become the first woman menteri besar for Selangor is being thwarted by Umno Baru and the critics in her own coalition.

In patriarchal Malaysia, women must prove themselves more than most men, and obstacles are deliberately put in their way. Many women know that if they put their minds to it, they can achieve whatever they desire. Have the people who question Wan Azizah's suitability, applied the same rigorous standards to MBs in other states? Unsurprisingly, MBs in the opposition-held states of Selangor, and Penang are subjected to intense scrutiny.

Did anyone ask if the Kelantan MB possessed the necessary experience? Ahmad Yaakob, the Syariah graduate from Al-Azhar University in Egypt and former teacher did not have a rough ride when he was chosen as MB for Kelantan.

Similarly, his predecessor, 'Tok Guru', who is much respected and admired, even by non-Muslims, and has been credited for PAS' increased popularity among non-Muslims,  eased effortlessly into the role of MB.

The former MB of Terengganu, Ahmad Said, who many will remember as the explorer who met the penguins in Antarctica, and whose temper tantrums, just before his daughter's wedding caught Najib's attention, was not the first choice for MB, in 2008. In the Terengganu constitutional crisis, Ahmad was alleged to be the sultan's favourite, despite Ahmad's unpopularity within Umno Baru.

Did anyone question if Mukhriz Mahathir had the necessary experience to be MB? Sometimes, one's political pedigree is enough to silence one's detractors.

In 2010, Perak's BN senior executive councillor Hamidah Osman (right) was rumoured to be Najib's preferred choice for MB, because of her alleged role in persuading three Pakatan assemblypersons to leap frog to 'independence', thus causing the collapse of Pakatan's 10-month government of Perak.

If Najib had been successful in making Hamidah the MB of Perak, he would have been lauded for being progressive. What a wasted opportunity! Instead, Najib listened to the chauvinists in Umno Baru and chose Zambry Abdul Kadir instead.

In a face-saving gesture, Hamidah betrayed every woman in Malaysia, when she said that a female politician could become a minister, but not an MB. "As menteri besar, one has to meet the Tuanku, where protocol is involved, and one has to meet religious officers, and in such situations it is not possible for a woman to become the head of a state government."

This mantra is continually applied to women, who might accompany the sultan. Recently, Umno Baru lawyer Mohd Hafarizam Harun mentioned a woman's unsuitability to be the MB, because her menstruation would be an "obstacle for her, to accompany the sultan at religious functions".

No mention of women being ineligible

The news article on Hafarizam also said that in the Selangor constitution, an MB must be "a member of the Malay race and profess the Muslim religion". There was no mention of women being ineligible.

Dr Shamrahayu Abdul Aziz (right), a Universiti Islam Antarabangsa (UIA) Malaysia lecturer agreed that it was possible for a woman to be MB. "There is no specification in the state laws that does not allow for a woman to be the menteri besar. The main requirements are for the candidate to be Muslim and Malay".

Conscious of her Umno Baru minders, she cautiously said, "But we also have to take into account sensitivities and taboos in society, as well as whether we are ready for a female menteri besar".

Why is Shamrahayu afraid of advancing the progress of other women? Is she aware that at one time, women had great difficulty getting an education, let along becoming lecturers?

Najib became Malaysia's youngest MB when he was 29, in 1982. Did anyone question his suitability as MB, for Pahang? Did the sympathy vote, after the death of his father, a few years earlier, which made him suitable?

Last year, Najib took over from Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, as the Women, Family and Community Development Minister. Did anyone broach the subject of his ability to hold three portfolios – prime minister, finance minister and also women minister? Was he paid three salaries? How did other women gauge his effectiveness as a minister in charge of women's affairs?

Najib cares more about his public image. He craves status and power. Over the years, many women in employment have given up lucrative careers, because of expensive child care. Single mothers are neglected. The syariah laws do not protect women. Child marriages destroy the lives of many young girls. Sports personalities are let off when they commit statutory rape.

How did Najib transform the lives of women during his tenure as the Women Minister? He could not fill the quota for women in government. He lacked the courage and conviction to push through policies, which would help Malaysian women. The bigger disappointment is that few women complained about him being an ineffective minister for women's affairs.

Sometimes, those who blight the hopes of Malaysian women are other women. Wan Azizah is being savaged for wanting to become MB, not because of her education, her achievements as a doctor, her knowledge of the struggles as a wife, working mother and grandmother, but because she is Anwar Ibrahim's wife.

By the time Wan Azizah takes her place as MB, she will be battle-hardened. Being a good MB is not gender-specific. It is about leadership skills and the passion to engage with Malaysians, for one common purpose.

Another fear of Umno Baru and conservative Malays is that once a woman becomes an MB, the rakyat will also accept the possibility of capable non-Malays becoming MBs, and PM. That would be the death knell of parties based on race and religion, like Umno Baru and PAS.

Holocaust survivors and their descendants accuse Israel of ‘genocide’

Posted: 24 Aug 2014 11:35 PM PDT

The Independent

More than 300 Holocaust survivors and their descendants have condemned what they described as Israel's ‘genocide of Palestinian people’ in an advert in the New York Times

Dozens of Holocaust survivors, together with hundreds of descendants of Holocaust survivors and victims, have accused Israel of "genocide" for the deaths of more than 2,000 Palestinians in Gaza since the conflict erupted in July.

In an open letter released by the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network and published as an advert in The New York Times, the group calls for a full economic, cultural and academic boycott of Israel over its "wholesale effort to destroy Gaza".

"Genocide begins with the silence of the world," the statement reads, "We must raise our collective voices and use our collective power to bring about an end to all forms of racism, including the ongoing genocide of Palestinian people."

The statement also condemns the United States for its financial and diplomatic support of Israel.

The signatories express alarm at "the extreme, racist dehumanization of Palestinians in Israeli society, which has reached a fever pitch."

This condemnation was designed as a response to a widely-published advertisement from Nobel prize-winning author Elie Wiesel that condemned Hamas for its "use of children as human shields".

The statement reads: "We are disgusted and outraged by Elie Wiesel's abuse of our history […] to justify the unjustifiable."

Of the 327 signatories, 40 survived the Holocaust and the other 287 are descendants of Holocaust survivors or victims.

Recent today reports refer to the destruction of an high rise office building in the southern town of Rafah, and the bombing of an apartment building in Gaza City amid attempts from the Egyptian government to establish a durable ceasefire.

More than 2,100 Palestinians, including 500 children have been killed in the conflict, according to Palestinian health officials and UN figures. Israel has lost 64 soldiers and four civilians.

Voices: How has the Islamic State been able to expand and what can stop it?

Posted: 22 Aug 2014 12:01 AM PDT

Middle East Eye

As the Islamic State – and the response from western governments – appears to gain momentum, MEE asks three experts how the group has been able to expand and what will stop it

JOHN ESPOSITO, Director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Centre for Muslim Christian Understanding at Georgetown University 
@JohnLEsposito
?
The Islamic State’s expansion has been made possible by political conditions in Syria and Iraq, ethic-religious/sectarian divisions and conflicts as well as in the region, and the failures of the US and international community. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's unprincipled and disproportionate military response to the "threat" of the democratisation wave, the Arab Spring, with the slaughter of Syrian opposition groups, both radicalised the situation and heightened sectarian (Sunni-Shia or Alawi) divisions. Outgoing Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki's policies – installing a Shia-dominated government, marginalising Sunnis and taking control of parts of Anbar province – increased an already polarised situation and sectarian violence that have resulted in alienated Sunnis welcoming IS. IS’s expansion so far has been mostly in areas of Iraq that are either primarily Sunni or have important Sunni populations in them. The situation was compounded by Gulf funding of militant Salafi jihadists, including IS, to fight a proxy war in Syria against Assad. At the same time, the failure early on in Syria of the US and EU, to become significantly engaged and work closely with regional allies like Turkey, and Saudi Arabia to support moderate anti-Assad forces had a ripple effect. The US and EU underestimated the threat from Syria in 2011 and, more recently, in Iraq.

Like al-Qaeda and other militants, IS offers a militant Salafi ideology/religious rationale to justify, recruit, legitimate and motivate many of its fighters. While there is a similar ideological world view and shared tactics between IS and other terrorist groups like al-Qaeda, there are also distinctive differences. IS seeks to occupy and control areas, to govern, not just to dream of or speak of, but to create and impose their version of a transnational caliphate, with its harsh version of law and order and provision of security and social services. At the same time, they are far more aggressive in driving out, suppressing and killing other Muslims (Shia, Sunni imams who disagree with them and Yazidis, for example) and Christians, or demanding conversion to their brand of Islam.

IS will continue for some years to be a threat. Its capabilities will be enhanced by its alliance with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. It will also be very difficult for Iraqi and Kurdish forces to recapture most of the lost territory from IS, especially in areas where Iraqi Shia-dominated government and the Kurds are viewed as enemies rather than allies. Thus, it will be important for the new Iraqi government to form a significantly more inclusive representative government and policy. Given the current momentum of IS and its stated intentions to expand its caliphate, the group may well increase its activity in northwest Syria, southern Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and southern Turkey.

Although not a game changer, a coordinated regional and global response by Muslim religious leaders and Islamic organisations that denounces and discredits IS’s religious claims and actions in the name of Islam could be useful. While some have spoken out, globalised communications enables a far more massive and effective response. It might be possible to make gains in responding to IS if there were a real US and international commitment. Having disengaged from Iraq and Afghanistan, and having taken a minimalist approach in Syria and underestimating the threat from the deteriorating situations in Syria and Iraq, there is no reason or significant indication thus far that US President Barack Obama will move in that direction.


JULIEN BARNES-DACEY, Senior Policy Fellow in the European Council on Foreign Relations’ Middle East and North Africa Programme
@jbdacey

The rise of the Islamic State has been fuelled by the perceived exclusion and helplessness of Sunnis in both Syria and Iraq, and enabled in particular by the brutal conflict in Syria which has acted as a mobilising space for the jihadist group. The material gains and momentum of its recent surge into Iraq is now helping to consolidate its position and draw in wider support.

Given its ideology, it's clear that IS will ultimately need to be stopped militarily. But that can only happen on the basis of two pre-requisites: First, drawing away some Sunni support from IS in Iraq that empowers local push-back against the group (as opposed to depending on problematic Western military intervention).

But secondly, a strategy focused solely on Iraq won't be enough. IS's recent gains are based on its presence in Syria, and any meaningful attempt to stop the group will have to also go after it there. Given that the threat posed by Islamic State has created an unprecedented convergence of regional interests, there may be an opportunity to revisit the potential for regional deal making on Syria, drawing in the Saudis and the Iranians towards some kind of power sharing agreement based around the need to push back against the Islamic State. It's a long shot, and clearly actors on the ground aren't moving there yet, but the provision of arms and direct military attacks are fraught with uncertainty and the prospects of success are so slim that an opportunity to explore regional convergence – as is already happening in surprising ways in Lebanon and Iraq – may represent the best way forward.


AHMED MEILOUD, doctoral candidate at the University of Arizona’s School of Middle Eastern and North African Studies
@AhmedMeiloud

The rise of the Islamic State from the Syrian fratricide caught many by surprise. However, most keen observers knew that Iranian and Lebanese support would slow, but not prevent Assad's demise. This recognition led global players to intervene. After attempts to form a secular opposition failed, the focus shifted to sowing discord between the Islamists to buy time and to stem the support pouring from the Sunni world. The plan worked, but its engineering failed. It eventually led to a dramatic – although in hindsight predictable – consequence: The cohesive and war-hardened men of IS won. In the process of crashing others, IS abandoned its guarded stance, declared its supra-national agenda and proceeded to vigorously pursue it on the ground.

Access to weakly defended weapons warehouses in Syria, extended experience with asymmetric combat, and fresh boosts of morale and volunteers allowed IS to use raids on Assad forces as a regular weapon-procurement scheme and its clashes with Iraqi forces as a recruitment tool within its Sunni constituents.

As a fighting force, IS possesses four strengths that make it the most lethal ground force in the region: 1. Brutality: It seldom takes prisoners; 2. Dedication: Its soldiers came to die for a cause. Despite its near annihilation in 2010, the movement never had a shortage of suicide bombers; 3. Mobility: most of IS's attacks are marked by speed and surprise; and 4. Wide expertise in warfare: No regional army had fought in the past decade as many battles as IS core fighters have, using all means to bleed its often better-armed adversaries.

Despite these strengths, IS has some weaknesses. One of these is its image. The further its image is disfigured before Sunni Muslims, the more its recruitment line suffers. IS's opponents are quite conscious of this and have sought to spread many tales of horror about its mistreatment of civilians. While most of the accounts of mass rape, forced marriages and sexual slavery have proved to be fabrications, IS's display of mass execution of war prisoners united its foes and alienated its friends. Another flaw is the lack of aerial force or air defence systems. Further, IS's flaws lie in its inability to win over key Iraqi nationalist groups. These are silent for now but could switch sides or wait it all out. The latter option is the best that IS could hope for. The signs of new sahawat [anti al-Qaeda Iraqi Sunni groups] are already looming on the horizon.

Although IS has managed to quickly overrun the US-trained and funded Iraqi army, the Kurdish Peshmerga and many divisions of the Syrian army – and would have done as well pushing the Kuwaitis or Jordanians – it is not invincible. The Iraqi terrain makes it extremely vulnerable to American airstrikes and its rapid expansion has left it thinly stretched. In the case of extensive air campaigns, IS's mobility and access supply roads might be severely limited. This would give the weakened Peshmerga and other Iraqi militias some edge over IS.

But IS's raison d’être is not territorial gains or established institutions, but rather its ideological commitment and the grievances it claims to respond to. If the sectarian problems in Iraq are not addressed, and if the general grievances against Western meddling in Muslim affairs are not properly resolved, Muslim youth, especially Sunnis, will continue to seek military methods to pursue their dreams. Battling already with a sense of injured pride and a sense of limited options, Sunni militants are unlikely to crash in the long term. The official Sunni world – except for perhaps Turkey and Qatar – has mostly been discredited and is, at its current state, incapable of providing an acceptable alternative to a caliphate dream. In the long term, a unified Sunni state, in Syria, Iraq and perhaps beyond, is inevitable.

 

‘BN hanya boleh ditewaskan melalui Pakatan’

Posted: 21 Aug 2014 11:57 PM PDT

Malaysiakini

Timbalan Presiden PKR, Azmin Ali menyeru pada anggota Angkatan Muda Keadilan (AMK) agar terus mempertahankan Pakatan Rakyat dari sebarang provokasi dan usaha untuk menggugat perpaduan gabungan parti itu.

MP Gombak itu meminta anggota AMK mencontohi pakar strategi Zhuge Liang dalam sejarah purba tamadun Cina untuk membina semula Dinasti Han.

“Mengambil ilham dari strategi Zhuge Liang, PKR hanya boleh menewaskan BN dan menegakkan Kerajaan Rakyat melalui muafakat bersama PAS dan DAP.

“Apa cara sekalipun, apa jua daya kita, Pakatan Rakyat perlu dipertahankan. Kita tidak membenarkan sesiapapun untuk melakukan provokasi dan cuba menggugat perpaduan Pakatan Rakyat.

“Kita bersama-sama membidankan kelahiran Pakatan Rakyat pasca (pilihan raya umum ke-12) pada 2008. Sememangnya, tahaluf siyasi ini berdepan dengan pelbagai cabaran,” katanya.

Dalam ucapannya juga, Azmin berkata walaupun Pakatan hanya dibentuk pada 2008, kerjasama politik dalam gabungan itu tetap utuh kerana pembentukannya tidak dibuat atas keadaan “terburu-buru”.

Kekuatan Pakatan Rakyat

Katanya lagi, permuafakatan Pakatan diikat dengan pelbagai dasar dan prinsip antaranya mempertahankan prinsip keadilan sosial dan kesaksamaan serta komitmen dalam membentuk kerajaan yang berteraskan tata kelola.

Pakatan juga sama-sama menentang keras amalan dan budaya rasuah serta kapitalisme kroni.

“Iltizam politik menerusi tahaluf siyasi ini menuntut AMK meneruskan kerjasama dengan Pemuda PAS dan DAPSY ke arah memperkukuhkan muafakat ini yang dibina atas kerangka perjuangan yang jelas.

“Keutamaan hari ini mestilah ditumpukan untuk mengembalikan kepercayaan rakyat kepada Pakatan Rakyat,” katanya.

Di samping itu, MP Gombak itu turut menyeru anggota AMK mencontohi pemimpin China Deng Xiaoping yang meletakkan asas kemunculan China sebagai kuasa besar ekonomi.

“Kerajaan Negeri Pakatan Rakyat mestilah melaksanakan kebijakan yang digarap bersama oleh komponen Pakatan Rakyat,” katanya.

Kepulangan yang telah lama dinantikan. Sebaik sahaja dua pegawai Kedutaan Malaysia dan wakil Malaysia Airlines (MAS) membuat proses pemeriksaan akhir, 20 jenazah mangsa nahas MH17 akhirnya diterbangkan pulang ke tanah air pada 3.40 petang Khamis (9.40 malam waktu Malaysia).
  
Mereka sepatutnya pulang pada 17 Julai lepas dan tiba pada 18 Julai ke Malaysia, namun tiada siapa menyangka pesawat MH17 itu akan ditembak jatuh.
  
Penerbangan membawa 298 penumpang dan anak kapal yang dalam perjalanan dari Amsterdam ke Kuala Lumpur itu ditembak jatuh di timur Ukraine pada 17 Julai.
  
Selain 43 warga Malaysia, penumpang pesawat itu turut terdiri daripada warga Belanda, Australia, Indonesia, United Kingdom, Jerman, Belgium, Filipina, Kanada dan New Zealand.

Di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Schiphol, petugas media Malaysia dan tempatan tiba di sebuah bangunan untuk dibawa menaiki sebuah bas ke terminal kargo yang menempatkan pesawat khas membawa balik 20 jenazah.
  
Petugas media tiba kira-kira pukul 2 petang dan dibawa menghampiri pesawat khas MAS Boeing 747 itu sebelum pintu pesawat dibuka.
  
Kelihatan beberapa keranda telah disusun dan difahamkan kesemua 20 jenazah dalam 17 keranda dan tiga bekas abu itu telah mula diangkut satu per satu sejak awal pagi Khamis.
    


Proses pemeriksaan akhir jenazah bermula sejurus selepas 2 petang dilakukan Naib Presiden Operasi MAS Datuk Baharom Mohd Yatim, Setiausaha Kedua Pejabat Kedutaan Malaysia di Belanda, Halmah Hassan dan Kaunselor Kedutaan Malaysia di Finland, Devrin Jeck untuk tujuan formaliti proses.
  
Media Malaysia dan tempatan tidak dibenarkan mendekati pintu masuk pesawat khas itu dan hanya dapat melihat dari jarak 50 meter sahaja.

Kelihatan keranda yang dibalut dengan Jalur Gemilang itu disusun satu per satu, tidak bertindih dalam tiga barisan dengan sedikit jarak antara antara satu sama lain.
  
Cuaca sejuk mencecah 16 darjah Celcius dengan angin kuat tidak menghalang petugas media merakamkan detik bersejarah itu walaupun cuma dibenarkan berada di kawasan itu kira-kira 10 minit sahaja.
  
Terdapat kira-kira 20 petugas keselamatan yang dibantu pegawai lapangan terbang yang sangat mesra ketika proses rakaman pemeriksaan akhir pesawat itu dilakukan.
  
Sebaik sahaja selesai pemeriksaan, kelihatan wakil MAS dan pegawai kedutaan diserahkan beberapa kertas untuk tujuan formaliti proses sebelum mereka beredar dan keluar dari pesawat itu.
  
Tidak lama selepas itu, kumpulan anak kapal pesawat itu dilihat tiba dengan sebuah van sebelum menaiki pesawat itu.

Petugas media kemudian diarah meninggalkan kawasan itu memandangkan proses persediaan teknikal pelepasan pesawat akan bermula.
  
Pesawat itu dikendalikan Kapten Misman Leham bersama dua pembantu juruterbang iaitu Kapten Bakri Othman dan Kapten Zaim Khalid selain pegawai penerbangan Yap Yoon Kong.
  
Kira-kira pukul 3.40 petang Khamis (9.40 malam di Malaysia),  pesawat akhirnya berlepas meninggalkan lapangan terbang yang dipenuhi ratusan pesawat antarabangsa itu ke Malaysia.
  
Seorang wakil MAS yang enggan dikenali memberitahu pesawat khas itu tidak akan menggunakan laluan seperti pesawat MH17 sebelum ini dan dijangka akan menggunakan laluan lain namun enggan mendedahkannya demi tujuan keselamatan.
  
Perjalanan terus tanpa henti itu akan mengambil masa kira-kira 12 jam menuju ke Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA).
