Keputusan kerajaan mengusir peguam Perancis, William Bourdon bulan lepas terbukti satu kesilapan kerana ia sebaliknya telah mencetuskan minat yang lebih besar di kalangan orang awam Perancis terhadap kes pembelian kapal selam oleh kerajaan Malaysia.

Bercakap kepada pemberita di Petaling Jaya hari ini, pengarah NGO hak
asasi manusia – Suaram – Cynthia Gabriel (kiri) berkata, pengusiran tersebut mendapat liputan meluas media Perancis ekoran reputasi cemerlang Bourdon sebagai peguam hak asasi manusia.

“Apabila beliau turun dari kapal terbang … di Paris selepas dihantar pulang, dia dinanti oleh ramai petugas media.

“Orang Perancis tidak tahu yang beliau mengendalikan (kes ini) di Malaysia, dan ia membangkitkan minat yang besar di kalangan orang ramai,” katanya.

Menurutnya, Bourdon “terkenal” kerana antara lainnya, mewakili pihak yang membuat tuntutan terhadap pemerintahan diktator Pinochet dan kes-kes pembunuhan beramai-ramai Rwanda dan pengusirannya telah memburukkan prestasi Malaysia.

Ia juga menimbulkan ‘kemarahan” di kalangan rakyat Malaysia yang kemudiannya bermurah hati untuk menyumbang kepada tabung guaman Suaram berhubung kes pembelian kapal selam dari syarikat pembuat kapal Perancis, DCNS, yang sedang didengar di mahkamah Perancis.

Hasilnya, Suaram memperolehi kira-kira RM250,000 di tiga acara mengumpul dana tersebut bulan lalu – jauh melepasi sasaran ‘sederhana’ RM100,000 sebagai dana permulaan.

Bagaimanapun, jumlah tersebut hanya mencukupi untuk membiayai peringkat awal pendengaran kes itu.

Beliau berkata, pihaknya amat berbesar hati dengan sambutan terhadap jualan tiket, sumbangan, derma dan janji-janji untuk membuat sumbangan.

“Malah, ketika kita bercakap ini pun, sumbangan diterima (tetapi) peguam kami memaklumkan bahawa kos terjemahan sahaja ialah €20,000 manakala kos memfailkan kes belum ditentukan lagi,” katanya.

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim berkata, seramai 200,000 warga Indonesia telah didaftarkan sebagai pengundi untuk memenangkan Barisan Nasional (BN) pada pilihan raya umum akan datang.

Ketua Pembangkang itu berkata demikian dalam satu wawancara eksklusif bersama sidang editorial  The Phillipine Star, dalam rangka lawatannya selama tiga hari ke Filipina.

Selain Warga Indonesia, katanya, rakyat Filipina di Sabah juga dibenarkan untuk mendaftar bagi membolehkan mereka mengundi parti pemerintah itu.

"Media Malaysia dan kerajaan mungkin telah melabel saya sebagai satu ancaman kepada negara dan menuduh saya menjadi satu gadaian untuk Zionis dan Amerika Syarikat, tetapi saya percaya orang ramai tidak boleh dipermainkan," kata Anwar.

Anwar berkata,  demokrasi di Malaysia semakin merosot berikutan sistem pilihan raya yang semakin kotor.

Ia termasuk kontroversi terbaru membabitkan isu Penduduk Tetap (PR) yang mendapat kewarganegaraan untuk mengundi dalam pilihan raya.

"Demokrasi kami semakin merosot. Pilihanraya tidak bebas dan media dikongkong," kata Anwar.

Sementara itu, Anwar turut menjangkakan beliau akan dihukum dalam kes fitnah yang dihadapinya sebelum Pilihan Raya Umum ke 13, untuk menafikan haknya bertanding.

"Mereka (Umno-BN) akan menghukum saya sebelum pilihanraya untuk menafikan hak saya untuk bertanding," ujar Anwar.

Ketua Umum KEADILAN itu tiba di Manila semalam dan turut diundang untuk menyampaikan syarahan di Universiti Filipina di Diliman, Quezon City.

Beliau turut diiringi Ketua Angkatan Muda KEADILAN (AMK), Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin dan Ahli Majlis Pimpinan Pusat KEADILAN, Khalid Jaafar.

Bersih: NRD’s Mismah-Gate Clarification Unacceptable

Posted: 04 Aug 2011 11:14 PM PDT

Malaysiakini

The National Registration Department (NRD)’s explanation of the ‘Mismah-gate’ is unacceptable as it fails to address the public’s concern, said Bersih 2.0 chief Ambiga Sreenevasan.

Therefore, she supported Pakatan Rakyat MPs’s call for an emergency parliamentary sitting this month in order to seek answers for the many questions thescandal’s raised.

“Because questions have to be asked in Parliament which have yet to be answered. We haven’t actually have had any meaningful answer… there has to be accountability on this issue,” Ambiga (left) told Malaysiakini during an interview yesterday.

“The answer that they have given us so far is really quite unacceptable.”

In a statement on Wednesday, NRD director-general Jariah Mohd Said explained that Mismah, a name found in the latest supplementary electoral roll draft, was granted permanent residency on July 17, 1982, and later citizenship on Jan 31, 2011.

However, the statement failed to shed light on the question of how the NRD online verification system could have categorised Mismah as a permanent resident on Tuesday morning but ‘upgraded’ her to citizen four hours after a Malaysiakini report.

Jariah was also silent on the PAS allegation of there being 1,597 such cases nationwide.

Ambiga said that Bersih 2.0 had received similar complaints prior to the expose but not proven until the Malaysiakini report was published.

“What I would have expected from the authority is for them to say ‘we think this is serious, we think it must be investigated and we will come back to the public on the issue’, but unfortunately all those who have spoken appeared to be defending the indefensible.”

She described the issue as something that requires urgent attention and transparency from the authority, failing which the affair could largely undermine the introduction of the biometric system by the Election Commission (EC).

“It was one of the reasons why we have misgivings about the biometric system, because if we can’t even get the database at the NRD right, and there are questions about its integrity, then I really don’t know how it can progress to a biometric system.”

The issue coupled with the failure of the authority to provide a satisfactory answer, has deepened the confidence crisis faced by the government, warned Ambiga.

“Trust is something that they have to build and the way they can build trust is by being honest with us, it is really quite simple, and by being absolutely transparent with the public.”

She reiterated that the EC has to involve the public at every stage of the implementation of the biometric system and keep them updated throughout the process.

“In today’s Malaysia, it is not enough for the authority to say ‘just trust us’,” she stressed.

Malaysia’s Anwar Thanks Phl For Support For Democracy

Posted: 04 Aug 2011 10:49 PM PDT

From PhilSTAR.Com

Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim thanked the Filipino people yesterday for continuing to support the fight for democracy in Malaysia.

"Thank you for supporting freedom and democracy, it means a lot," Anwar, a former deputy prime minister of Malaysia, told editors and columnists during a visit to The STAR office in Manila.

He also expressed gratitude for the support of officials of the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, the United States, and the European Union.

Anwar arrived in Manila Thursday to give a lecture today at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City on the influences of Dr. Jose Rizal and Ninoy Aquino on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) leadership.

He will also meet his friend, former President Joseph Estrada, over breakfast at Club Filipino in San Juan this morning.

Anwar said he had once met President Aquino whom he praised for fighting corruption and upholding democracy like his mother, the late President Corazon Aquino.

The Malaysian opposition leader believes that democracy is deteriorating in Malaysia.

"You are right, democracy is in decline. We don't have free elections and the media is not free," he said.

Anwar said that his trial on new sodomy charges would start on Aug. 8 and it could be drawn out until the next parliamentary elections in Malaysia, which is expected to be held in November.

"They (Malaysian authorities) would convict me before the elections, to deny me participating in the elections," he said.

He said that the Malaysian authorities might cheat to put the party of Prime Minister Najib Rzak back in power.

Anwar said they received reports that 200,000 Indonesians have been registered to vote.

He said that some Filipinos in Sabah are also allowed to register on the condition that they would vote for the ruling party.

"I believe in the people of Malaysia. The Malaysian media and the government may have labeled me as a threat to the country and accused me of being a pawn for Zionists and the United States, but I believe the people can't be fooled," said Anwar.

A Malaysian court has said sodomy charges against Anwar are "credible."

He is accused of sodomizing a former male aide in a Kuala Lumpur hotel in 2008. Anwar denied the charges. If proven guilty, he could go to jail for 20 years.

Sodomy is illegal in Malaysia, even among consenting adults.

Anwar was imprisoned on separate sex and corruption charges in 1998, and freed on appeal in 2004.

Malaysian envoy's wife denies Twitter message

Meanwhile, the wife of Malaysia's top diplomat in the Philippines disowned on Wednesday a Twitter message criticizing Philippine national hero Jose Rizal, saying it was a "set-up" aimed at putting them in a bad light and harming relations between the two countries.

In an interview, Datin Seri Dato' Zainab Abd. Kader, wife of Ambassador Dato Seri Dr. Ibrahim Saad, clarified that the Twitter message from the sender @BikMama2U was sent to her.

Dato' Zainab, reacting to the article of STAR columnist Jarius Bondoc on Aug. 1 "Rizal doesn't deserve this," cited a Twitter message attributed to her criticizing and labeling Rizal as an "infidel Malay."

She said she was not the sender of the message, noting that the message showed she was the recipient since the sender asked her to send her regards to her husband.

"BikMama2U is pretending to be on my side. It was his or her who said that about Rizal, not me. BikMama is a fake twittter. We presumed it's a picture of the Prime Minister's wife. It's a fake ID. It even said don't forget to send regards to your husband," Dato' Zainab told The STAR.

In a letter, Dato' Zainab said, "I wish to categorically deny the accusation against me that I called Jose Rizal an 'Infidel Malay' via Twitter, or via any other medium for that matter. I wish to also deny in the strongest terms that I had insulted Jose Rizal in any manner whatsoever."

The ambassador and his wife questioned the timing of the release last Monday of the July 16 Twitter message article attributed to her, saying it was only a few days before the visit to Manila this week of Ibrahim.

"It's even worse for a diplomat's wife to say something like that. What surprised me is who alerted of the Tweet and why was it written a few days before Anwar Ibrahim arrived in the Philippines to give a talk. It was meant to smear my name," Dato' Zainab said.

When asked about the Twitter message that caused a stir in Kuala Lumpur political circles last week, Anwar said, "Well, not much is really necessary because I didn't see the content. I wish she could give her side on the issue since I know the family, and for the sake of good relations we just clear the air and since she denied (it), I think it is a good move because Jose Rizal is a Filipino hero to us, (he) is my hero and a hero of Asians."
