Beware: Crooked Malaysian Politicos Protecting Amalilio

Posted: 31 Jan 2013 07:33 PM PST

The Philippine Star

One moment the Armed Forces brass says that soldiers have been re-indoctrinated to respect civil rights. In the next it pleads for sympathy that troopers emptied rifle magazines into two vanloads of civilians since "they were only following orders."

In short the generals are saying that their men are caring, dutiful killers. No wonder Commander-in-Chief Noynoy Aquino had to tell them to stop telling tall tales about the Atimonan massacre of 13 men.

At any rate, the brass should make the 25 soldiers' commanding officer answer for shouting, "Fire!" Soldiers obey only their CO.

Something stinks about police officers owning security agencies. Will they ever fight crime as earnestly as they should, if they need to justify the hiring of their security guards by malls, banks, restaurants, offices, subdivisions, plantations, ports, everywhere? Is the number of guards in the Philippines inversely equivalent to police efficiency? In countries where police response and crime investigation are superb, businesses do not need private security services.

Will the probe of the Atimonan massacre delve as well into why the 13 fatalities were travelling armed? Reports have it that group leader, Vic Siman, and one companion, police colonel Alfredo Consemino, had just met with one Ronnie Habatin in Bicol to merge their security and mining businesses. The ambushing police officers claimed that Siman had headed a private army. Thirteen registered and one unlicensed firearms were found inside the group's two SUVs. They had not come from a shooting competition, so what were they, with three policemen and five soldiers, up to?

Philippine officials need to get hold from Malaysia the fugitive Ponzi-scammer Manuel Amalilio. So they need to be very courteous in talking repatriation with Malaysian counterparts. They also have to be very cautious. For, Amalilio's stolen multibillion pesos can bribe the Malaysians into keeping him safely in Sabah, away from Philippine justice.

The Chief Minister of Sabah, Musa Aman, was responsible for stopping agents of the Philippine National Bureau of Investigation last Friday from flying Amalilio out of there. Musa Aman is in fact viewed as one of Malaysia's crookedest officials. What could have induced him to save the head of Aman Futures, who duped some 15,000 Visayans and Mindanaoans of P12 billion?

Hours earlier, Malaysian feds had nabbed and turned over Amalilio to the NBI. Last minute, on the pretext that he is a protected Malaysian national, Sabah airport guards barred the Filipino lawmen from taking back the absconder.

After some initial confusion, the Sabah Chief Minister no less emerged as having ordered Amalilio's reprieve. When Manila showed proof that the wanted man is Filipino, Musa changed his tune. He claimed that Amalilio had conned Sabahans too, so their complaints must be investigated. He couldn't explain why Amalilio purportedly would be grilled only now. The fugitive had fled Mindanao for Sabah as far back as November; ripped-off Filipinos had been sighting him there in public.

Musa is known to lie with a straight face when exposed for sleaze. Like, when prominent Sabah timber concessionaire Michael Chia (alias Chia Tien Foh), was arrested in Hong Kong smuggling out $16.6 million last year. Musa swore he has never met him. The Malaysian press reprinted photos of Musa and Chia handshaking and arms over shoulders in several socials over the past decade.

Chia's smuggling prompted an investigation by Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption. The ICAC unearthed Musa's money laundering all the way to Zurich (starting with $20 million in 1998) and the British Virgin islands (initially with $9 million in 2005).

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission conducted a parallel probe. Uncovered were remittances from Chia and his lawyer Richard Christopher Barnes to Musa's two sons in Australia, via banks in Singapore.

International conservationists have been expressing concern that Musa is giving away timber concessions in Sabah. Deforestation there has been identified as one of the main causes of global warming that triggers catastrophic weather.

Meanwhile, some concessionaires have complained of Chia's prohibitive extortions in behalf of Musa, the chairman of Sabah's timber board. One exposé is about his grant of a lucrative logging site to Chia's mistress.

More than 40 charges were brought against Musa. But he was able to elude them — and prevent the ICAC and MACC from synchronizing their probes — through political connections.

Musa is the older brother of Malaysian Foreign Minister Anifah Aman, and a close kin of Attorney General Abdul Gani Patail.

As head in Sabah of Malaysia's ruling UMNO party, Musa is also its chief fundraiser and so a strong ally of Prime Minister Najib Razak. Razak is himself being linked to a $40-million kickback from the purchase of three submarines from France and the murder of a Mongolian socialite who publicly raised a fuss about her share. The UMNO tried to make it look like the recent dollar smuggling from Hong Kong was a donation for the forthcoming parliamentary election.

Amalilio is facing some 8,000 court cases in the Philippines. President Noynoy Aquino, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, Interior Secretary Mar Roxas, and Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario are collaborating to bring him back and face the music. In so doing, they will have to deal with Musa, Anifah, Patail, and Razak.

Six Israeli Security Chiefs Stun the World

Posted: 31 Jan 2013 09:01 AM PST

CNN.COM International

Six former heads of the Shin Bet, Israel's secretive internal security service, have spoken out as a group for the first time and are making stunning revelations.

The men who were responsible for keeping Israel safe from terrorists now say they are afraid for Israel's future as a democratic and Jewish state.

Israeli film director Dror Moreh managed to get them all to sit down for his new documentary: "The Gatekeepers." It is the story of Israel's occupation of the Palestinian Territories, as told by the people at the crossroads of some of the most crucial moments in the security history of the country.

"If there is someone who understands the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it's those guys," the director told CNN's Christiane Amanpour.

Against the backdrop of the currently frozen peace process, all six argue – to varying degrees – that the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land is bad for the state of Israel.

The oldest amongst the former chiefs, Avraham Shalom, says Israel lost touch with how to coexist with the Palestinians as far back as the aftermath of the Six Day War of 1967, with the occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, when the country started doubling down on terrorism.

"We forgot about the Palestinian issue," Shalom says in the film.

A major impediment to a meaningful strategy, they say, are the Jewish extremists inside Israel – people like the Jewish Israeli who assassinated Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin, or the 1980 plot to blow up the Dome of the Rock Islamic shrine in Jerusalem.

A central theme of the documentary is the idea that Israel has incredible tactics, but lacks long-term strategy. That is to say, the security apparatus is able to pacify terrorists, but if operations do not support a move toward a peace settlement, then they are meaningless.

Moreh said he was shocked to hear Avraham Shalom, Austrian-born and a refugee of the Nazis, compare the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories to Germany's occupation of Europe.

"Bear in mind that Avraham Shalom was born in Vienna," Moreh said. "And at the Kristallnacht he was forced by his mother to go to school and was beaten almost to death by his classmates… He said 'I experienced firsthand what it means to be under a racist regime.'"

Moreh knew that he had to include that part of the interview in the film. "I said to myself I have to keep it, because he understands what he speaks."

"Only Jews can say those kind of words," he told Amanpour. "And only they can have the justification to speak as they spoke in the film."

The filmmaker said that this is "the most pro-Israel film" he could have created. "When you see the Titanic heading toward the iceberg, what would you do?"

A spokesperson for current Israel Prime Minister said Benjamin Netanyahu had not seen "The Gatekeepers," and had no plans to do so.

"I think the fact that the PM of Israel is not willing to watch a film with six former heads of shin bet speaking and conveying a message to the Israeli public – to him and to the world. I think it just speaks about his personality," Moreh said.

Critics accuse Moreh of cherry picking to advance a political agenda that falls on the left-wing of the Israeli political spectrum.

"They are all pragmatists," Moreh told Amanpour about the subjects. "These are the six heads of the secret service of Israel saying in one and clear voice enough of the occupation – you cannot argue with that."

Moreh said that none of the former chiefs has come to him with any problems with the final product and all of them told him they stand behind the film.

Blocking Repatriation of Wanted Conman – Follow Due Process

Posted: 31 Jan 2013 12:56 AM PST

The claim by Philippine Interior Secretary Mar Roxas that Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman has blocked the repatriation of the Philippine's most wanted conman is most shocking and we demand an explanation.

The conman known as Manuel Karingal Amalilio is also said to be Musa's nephew and going by the name of Mohammad Sufian Said. This is not a petty issue as he is alleged to have cheated over 15,000 people of 12 billion pesos or about RM900 million! Musa must come clean on these allegations. Remaining silent is not an option.
Meanwhile, the Malaysian police must act in accordance with the law and must not be seen to be taking orders from political masters. The idea that our law enforcers are party to any act or conspiracy to harbour criminals is absolutely repugnant and scandalous.
I urge the Inspector General of Police to take immediate action to heed Manila's request and help bring the suspect to justice. Due process must be observed and Amalilio must be given a fair trial.

Isteri Mati Ditembak 24 Das Oleh Polis Di Taman Sentosa, Klang

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 10:53 PM PST

KLANG 31 JAN : Seorang pemandu lori mahu Polis Diraja Malaysia berterus terang dan menyiasat bagaimana isterinya, Pua Bee Chun, 22, mati dipercayai ditembak anggota mereka.

Bee Chun dipercayai mati ditembak ketika berada di dalam sebuah kereta di Jalan Bendahara, Taman Sentosa, Klang pada 18 Januari.

Menurut Foo Voon Kong, 27, isterinya dipercayai mati selepas ditembak dari belakang badannya. Kereta tersebut dipercayai ditembak sebanyak 24 kali.

Voon Kong mendakwa segala usaha untuk mendapat penjelasan daripada polis tentang bagaimana dan kenapa isterinya mati menemui jalan buntu.

Di dalam satu sidang media di sini hari ini, Voon Kong berkata kali terakhir beliau berjumpa dengan isterinya pada 5 petang pada hari kejadian sebelum isterinya keluar rumah.

Katanya, beliau menghantar sistem pesanan ringkas (SMS) menyuruh Bee Chun pulang untuk makan malam dan keluar ke pasar malam bersama kedua anak mereka.

"Bagaimanapun, beliau (isteri) kata tidak dapat pulang, apabila saya menghantar sms kali kedua bertanya dia dimana, isteri saya tidak membalas sms itu.

"Kira-kira jam 8.30 malam, saya menerima panggilan telefon dari rakan saya memberitahu beliau ternampak mayat isteri saya.

"Apabila saya sampai ditempat kejadian, saya lihat ramai orang awam dan polis, mayat isteri saya dibawa ke Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Klang.

"Doktor memaklumkan, isteri saya ditembak melalui belakang badannya," katanya di dalam sidang akbar di pejabat khidmat MP Klang.

Beliau mendakwa polis tidak menjalankan tugas mereka secara profesional dengan melulu menembak isterinya.

"Semua bukti seperti baju, kamera litar tertutup (CCTV) dan kereta yang dinaiki isteri saya diambil polis.

"Saya percaya isteri saya ditembak dengan 24 das tembakan berdasarkan kesan tembakan di pintu kereta dan bahagian belakang kereta," katanya.

Voon Kong menambah, beliau difahamkan isterinya ditembak ketika di dalam sebuah kereta jenis Waja bewarna perak bersama seorang lelaki yang merupakan kawannya.

Lelaki tersebut dipercayai ditahan polis dan satu laporan polis telah dibuat oleh Voon Kong pada 19 Januari lalu di Balai Polis Klang.

Sementara itu, MP Klang, Charles Santiago berkata kes itu merupakan yang ketiga berlaku selepas kematian pengawal keselamatan C Sugumaran dan kes Amirul Rasyid yang membabitkan polis.

"Kini, semua bukti berkaitan dengan pembunuhan hilang. Jika semua bukti ini tiada bagaimana hendak bawa kes ini ke mahkamah," katanya.

Selain itu, MP Puchong, Gobind SinghDeo  mahu polis menjalankan siasatan yang adil dan Perdana Menteri perlu campur tangan dalam kes itu.

"Polis tidak boleh menghukum mangsa dengan terus menembaknya, kini polis sudah tidak memberi perlindungan kepada rakyat."

Kecoh Peserta Protes IC Merah Dihalang Masuk JPN

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 08:50 PM PST

Satu kekecohan berlaku di Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) Pulau Pinang apabila polis cuba menghalang peserta protes yang memegang kad pengenalan (IC) merah daripada memasuki premis tersebut.

Kira-kira 30 pemegang IC merah dan keluarga mereka serta beberapa ADUN Pakatan Rakyat sebelum itu berkumpul di Jalan Larut pagi ini sebelum berarak ke pejabat JPN di Anson Road.

Kumpulan itu, yang diketuai Naib Presiden PKR, N Surendran, termasuk warga emas dan kanak-kanak yang gagal mendapatkan IC biru dari JPN.

Apabila mereka tiba di destinasi tersebut, kekecohan berlaku apabila polis cuba menghalang mereka memasuki pejabat JPN itu.

"Ini menyalahi undang-undang," kata Surendran.

Satu peserta protes itu menjerit "polis sabotaj kita!"

Ancaman ditangkap

Latheefa Koya dari Peguam NGO for Liberty berkata polis telah mengancam untuk menangkap mereka.

Mereka disertai ramai penyokong dan wakil rakyat Pakatan Rakyat seperti Sim Tze Tzin (Pantai Jerejak), Jason Ong (Kebun Bunga), dan Ng Wei Aik (Komtar).

Terdapat juga beberapa individu dengan IC hijau menyertai
perhimpunan tersebut.

Selepas pemimpin Pakatan berunding dengan pihak polis, kumpulan itu dibenarkan memasuki ke bangunan tersebut.

Mereka duduk di lobi dan menunggu untuk tindakan selanjutnya dari JPN.

Terdahulu, perarakan sejauhj 100 meter tidak mengganggu aliran trafik kerana polis dan anggota unit rondaan sukarela membantu mengawal lalulintas.

Mereka membawa sepanduk dengan slogan 'duduk' dan 'bantah' serta melaungkan "Hidup rakyat".

PKR: RM100 for Students ‘Cheap Gimmick’

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 08:50 PM PST

PETALING JAYA: The RM100 cash handouts for school children is a ridiculous attempt by the ruling coalition to garner cheap votes, said an opposition leader.

PKR vice-president N Surendran called on the Indian community not to fall prey to such election gimmicks.

"Those who read the mainstream newspapers will notice that most of them showed Indian students receiving the aid.. .and one can clearly see that the government is targeting Indian votes," he added.
Surendran agreed that this was no coincidence and that Barisan Nasional knew how to "play their cards right".

"The majority of the Indian community live under the poverty line and the government has not done much to improve their condition… so they are using the school aid to paint a different picture," he added.

Previous media reports quoted parents expressing their gratitude to the government for the cash handouts and they hoped such generous acts would be forthcoming in the future.

In a previous article by FMT, Education Minister Muhyiddin Yassin was quoted as saying that such aid from the government would continue only if the people voted for the BN government in the upcoming election.

However, Surendran refused to believe Muhyiddin's claims, reiterating that it was only a "cheap election gimmick".

"It's a last minute attempt by the government to win back all votes, not just the Indian votes in particular.

"These handouts are a one-off and it's disappointing cause there are no long-term benefits. It's neither significant nor a permanent benefit for the people," he added.

Instead, he said that the government should concentrate their resources on improving facilities of schools and provide scholarships for bright students, regardless of race.

"We all know that Tamil schools are in the worst conditions ever, and why can't the amount that was used for the school aid be channelled to improve the state of these schools?" he asked.

Surendran said this in reference to the RM540 million that the government has allocated for the distribution of school aid.

Mahkamah Benarkan Bicara Rahsia Perjanjian Konsensi

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 08:40 PM PST

SHAH ALAM 30 JAN : Isu samada perjanjian konsesi Syarikat Bekalan Air Syabas (Syabas) dan Kerajaan Selangor pada 2004 adalah rahsia kerajaan akan dibicarakan di peringkat Mahkamah Persekutuan.

Ini merupakan keputusan mahkamah tersebut hari ini terhadap permohonan yang dibuat oleh Gabungan Menentang Penswastaan Air (CAWP).

Pengerusi CAWP Charles Santiago berkata keputusan tersebut adalah satu langkah yang bagus yang akan memberikan peluang kepada orang ramai mengetahui butiran tentang 'projek kepentingan awam'.

Katanya, pihaknya akan menulis surat kepada pihak mahkamah supaya menetapkan satu tarikh untuk kes itu dibicarakan.

"Keputusan itu merupakan satu tindakan bagus kerana pihak mahkamah menyatakan bahawa Kerajaan Negeri mempunyai kepentingan.

"Jadi tidak ada asas untuk menteri tidak membenarkan pendedahan dokumen itu kerana laporan audit tidak pernah diklasifikasikan sebagai sulit di bawah Akta Rahsia Rasmi (OSA) 1972," katanya ketika dihubungi.

Sebelum ini, dilaporkan bahawa CAWP memfailkan permohonan meminta laporan audit dan perjanjian konsesi yang dimeterai Syabas dan Kerajaan Selangor pada 15 Disember 2004 diisytiharkan bukan sulit tetapi dokumen awam.

Mereka berhujah laporan audit Syabas menjadi asas kepada keputusan Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk menaikkan tarif air sebanyak 15 peratus di Lembah Klang pada 14 Oktober 2006.

Permohonan gabungan pengguna ini bagaimanapun ditolak Kementerian Tenaga, Air dan Komunikasi pada 4 Disember tahun yang sama atas alasan laporan audit dan perjanjian konsesi tersebut adalah sulit dan rahsia kerajaan Malaysia.

Pada 2011, Mahkamah Rayuan membatalkan keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi sebelum ini yang membenarkan responden mendapat akses kepada dokumen-dokumen tersebut.

Sekaligus, keputusan majoriti Mahkamah Rayuan itu menetapkan bahawa dokumen berkenaan tidak didedahkan.

Susulan daripada itu, CAWP memfailkan satu permohonan kepada Mahkamah Persekutuan untuk menimbang semula keputusan Mahkamah Rayuan tersebut.

CAWP terdiri dari Kongres Kesatuan Sekerja Malaysia dan 13 badan bukan kerajaan yang mewakili pengguna di Selangor, Kuala Lumpur dan Putrajaya.

Syabas Digesa Siasat Risalah Hentam Kerajaan Negeri

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 08:30 PM PST

SHAH ALAM, 30 JAN: Kerajaan Selangor mahu satu siasatan dalaman dibuat berhubung isu pengedaran risalah mengkritik kerajaan negeri dalam isu air yang melibatkan Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas).

Menteri Besar, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim berkata, maklumat ini diperolehi hasil aduan rakyat dan risalah tersebut dikeluarkan tanpa persetujuan dan pengetahuan Ahli Lembaga Pengarah Syabas.

Hasil siasatan awal yang dilakukan mendapati, risalah itu dikeluarkan Pengarah Eksekutif Pembangunan Teknikal Syabas, Ir V Subramaniam.

"Sebagai pemegang saham Syabas, Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Berhad (yang dimiliki Kerajaan Selangor) mendesak supaya diadakan siasatan dalaman terhadap Subramaniam kerana bertindak melebihi kuasa yang dibenarkan," katanya dalam satu sidang media selepas Mesyuarat Exco.

Risalah-risalah tersebut mirip beberapa iklan yang dipaparkan di dalam akhbar Umno-BN minggu lalu yang mengkritik kenyataan Kerajaan Negeri.

Selain itu, Abdul Khalid dalam satu kenyataan media yang lain berkata Kerajaan Selangor dimaklumkan bahawa kejadian paip bocor kerap berlaku dan ini akan memberi kesan terhadap pembekalan air kepada rakyat.

"Kerajaan negeri akan memantau secara serius perkara ini demi menjaga kepentingan lebih lima juta pengguna di Selangor, Kuala Lumpur dan Putrajaya.

"(Supaya mereka) tidak terjejas dengan gangguan bekalan air akibat kegagalan Syabas menyelenggara paip dengan baik dan berkala," Abdul Khalid berkata.

Pada dua minggu terawal bulan ini, rakyat Selangor berhadapan krisis bekalan air yang menyaksikan setengah juta rakyat di Ampang, Cheras dan Gombak berhadapan masalah bekalan air.

Hasil campurtangan Kerajaan Negeri melalui Jawatankuasa Pemantauan Air Negeri Selangor, krisis bekalan air berjaya diselesaikan dalam tempoh singkat dan lebih awal daripada masa yang dijangkakan Syabas.

Selangor Mahu Ambil Alih Syabas

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 12:40 AM PST

PETALING JAYA: Kerajaan Selangor telah menulis surat kepada Menteri Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air, Datuk Seri Peter Chin Kah Fui untuk memaklumkan akan mengambil alih perkhidmatan air daripada syarikat konsesi dalam tempoh 14 hari.

Kita berpegang kepada kenyataan Timbalan Perdana Menteri selaku Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Kabinet Mengenai Air, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin di Sabak Bernam baru-baru ini yang menyatakan kerajaan Pusat tiada halangan untuk kerajaan Selangor mengambilalih perkhidmatan air, kata Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim dalam kenyataan media hari ini.

"Justeru,  dalam surat tersebut kita telah memaklumkan bahawa pengambilalihan perkhidmatan industri air akan diteruskan dalam tempoh 14 hari sekiranya pihak kementerian tidak memberi sebarang maklum balas," katanya lagi.

Dalam perkembangan berkaitan, kata Abdul Khalid, kerajaan negeri mendapat aduan dari rakyat bahawa Syabas telah  mengedarkan risalah yang mengkritik kerajaan Selangor dalam isu air.

Katanya,  hasil dari siasatan awal yang kita lakukan didapati kenyataan Syabas tersebut telah dikeluarkan oleh Pengarah Eksekutif Pembangunan Teknikal Syabas, Ir V Subramaniam.

Malaysia Jatuh Ke Tangga 145 Dalam Indeks Kebebasan Media

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 12:30 AM PST

KUALA LUMPUR, 30 Jan — Malaysia jatuh ke tangga yang rendah dalam Indeks Kebebasan Media Dunia 2013 ke tangga 145 dari 179 negara, menurun 23 anak tangga.

Malaysia pernah berada di tangga 122 dan 141 dalam indeks pada 2011/2012 dan 2010 yang dihitung oleh kumpulan Wartawan Tanpa Sempadan.

Menurut Wartawan Tanpa Sempadan, kejatuhan disebabkan oleh akses kepada maklumat "menjadi semakin terhad".

Laporan oleh kumpulan tersebut mengatakan kejatuhan rekod Malaysia disebabkan oleh usaha kerajaan berulang kali untuk menyekat maklumat.

Ia juga menyebabkan penurunan dalam kebebasan media negara dengan apa yang mereka gambarkan sebagai kempen menindas kerajaan, membangkitkan tentang tindakan pihak berkuasa dalam berhadapan dengan perhimpunan anjuran Gabungan Pilihan Raya Bersih dan Adil (Bersih) April lalu.

Tahun lalu, beberapa pengamal media menuduh polis menyerang mereka dan merampas peralatan kamera dan kad penyimpan data semasa perhimpunan 28 April.

"Disamping pertempuran habis-habisan oleh aktivis hak asasi dan media internet, kempen penindasan oleh kerajaan, yang digambarkan dengan tindakan keras terhadap protes 'Bersih 3.0'pada April, dan usaha penapisan berulang, terus melemahkan kebebasan asas, khususnya hak untuk mendapatkan maklumat," tulis Wartawan Tanpa Sempadan dalam laporannya.

Negara jiran Thailand dan Indonesia kedua-duanya mengalahkan Malaysia masing-masing di tangga 135 dan 139.

Negara Asia Tenggara lain seperti Filipina, Singapura, Laos dan Vietnam, masing-masing berada di tangga 147, 149, 168, dan 172.

Game of ‘Sabotage 24/7′ in Selangor

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 12:20 AM PST

In a slick and covert mission, some smooth operators have managed to shoot up the numbers of the Selangor electoral roll by adding as many dubious voters as possible in order to subvert the vote of genuine Selangorians.

Appended below is the information on the increase of dubious voters in these Pakatan Rakyat-held parliamentary seats. The information is obtained from PAS' Harakah daily dated Jan 25 to 27, 2013:

1. Kuala Selangor 10,083 (PAS MP Dzulkefly Ahmad)
2. Selayang 16,189 (PKR MP William Leong)
3. Gombak 15,467 (PKR MP Azmin Ali)
4. Hulu Langat 23,334 (PAS MP Che Rosli Che Mat)
5. Serdang 23,748 (DAP MP Teo Nie Ching)
6. Puchong 19,772 (DAP MP Gobind Singh Deo)
7. Kelana Jaya 13,714 (PKR MP Loh Gwo Burne)
8. Subang 27,765 (PKR MP R Sivarasa)
9. Shah Alam 15,417 (PAS MP Khalid Samad)
10.Kapar 21,606 (PKR MP S Manikavasagam)
11.Klang 11,702 (DAP MP Charles Santiago)
12.Kota Raja 22,256 (PAS MP Siti Mariah Mahmud)
13.Kuala Langat 17,172 (PKR MP Abdullah Sani)

This underhand operation to negate the vote of genuine Malaysian citizens reveals the desperation of those who want to win at all costs so much so that they are willing to sell out the nation's rights.

In the process, they do not give two hoots about altering the nation's demographics or jeopardising the lives and livelihood of ordinary citizens.

The situation will be difficult for us citizens if we do not do something about these dubious voters (most of whom are foreigners with MyKad) and if we do not take pro-active action on polling day.

Pakatan leaders have already made countless police reports and filed countless complaints with the Election Commission (EC) but to no avail. The relevant authorities are just not concerned and have turned a blind eye to these reports and complaints.
Other problems as well

Besides the electoral roll problem, the water problem in Selangor is also an attempt to strike at Pakatan by victimising Selangorians.

"If the water pumps are spoilt, then just get them repaired. What has it got to do with the building of the Langat 2 dam? BN is talking nonsense by linking the water pumps problem with the dam," said PAS Pokok Sena MP, Mahfuz Omar.

Even the collection of rubbish in Selangor has been sabotaged. It is the game of "Sabotage 24/7" to halt the smooth running of the Pakatan Selangor government's administration.

Therefore from the Selangor situation we can see BN's game in attacking Pakatan and the citizens as a whole.

This means that all genuine Malaysians (regardless of whether we are voting or not) must be ready to serve the nation on polling day. It only takes one day to change the course of history.

And Pakatan needs all men and women of goodwill to monitor all the roads leading to the polling centres on polling day from the break of dawn to dusk. The rakyat should also gather outside the vote-counting centres to deter any extra ballot boxes from being brought in or other types of hanky-panky.

Chaos and hooliganism can also be prevented due to the strength of the rakyat.

This is the only chance for all ordinary citizens. Otherwise, BN will win again as it is in control of the EC and the National Registration Department (NRD).

There needs to be a massive force ushering in this change in history. The role of civil society is most needed to negate the efforts and effects of the phantom voters.

Therefore, civil society must act. There has to be a stop to all this victimisation of the rakyat, plundering of the nation's coffers and robbing of the citizens' rights via the giving of instant citizenships to unskilled or low-skilled foreign labour or aliens who had landed on our shores via the porous borders.

Gerrymandering game

It is already an uphill battle as the extremely dirty electoral roll coupled with gerrymandering of parliamentary and state boundaries work in favour of the ruling government.

The omission or transferring out of genuine Malaysian voters' names without the voters' knowledge or consent is another dirty tactic done with a lame excuse.

In addition, the EC has more than doubled its workers from 100,000 to 240,000 and these are the people who will be voting earlier.

The "pondok panas" to monitor voters have seen an increase in its distance from 50 metres to 100 metres from the polling centre and in the polling centre itself, the party representative has to face the voter's back – all these are measures put in place by the BN federal government to make it difficult for Pakatan's people to identify the "foreign" voters.

The rogues are therefore doing anything and everything, manipulating to the hilt to stay in power.

Petugas PR Jangan Tinggalkan Pusat Undi, Penipuan Akan Berlaku

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 12:10 AM PST

KUALA LUMPUR, 30 JAN: Petugas pilihan raya Pakatan Rakyat (PR) diingatkan supaya tidak meninggalkan pusat pengundian sehingga proses pengiraan undi selesai bagi menghalang sebarang penipuan yang bakal dilakukan pada Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-13 (PRU-13).

Peringatan tegas ini disuarakan Presiden PKR Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail yang percaya kerja-kerja penipuan sudah pastinya dirancang pihak tidak bertanggungjawab dalam usaha menyekat kemenangan PR ke Putrajaya.

Mengimbau suasana pengiraan semula undi pilihanraya di Parlimen Permatang Pauh pada tahun 2004 katanya, perkara ini perlu dijadikan pengajaran selain iktibar daripada kisah pejuang Islam dalam Perang Uhud.

"Semua perlu berhati-hati, jangan bagi penipuan berlaku lagi dalam PRU kali ini.

"Ahli parti jangan tinggalkan 'post'. Pastikan ikut peti undi bagi mengelakkan penipuan," katanya pada Majlis Makan Malam sempena Kutipan Dana Pilihanraya Umum Ke-13 (PRU-13) anjuran PKR Lembah Pantai.

Semasa pengiraan undi pada PRU-11, Dr Wan Azizah yang bertanding di kerusi parlimen Permatang Pauh mula-mula kalah dengan majoriti tipis kepada calon Umno-BN Datuk Pirdaus Ismail.

Tetapi selepas pengiraan semula dibuat, Dr Wan Azizah menang dengan majoriti 590 undi.

Lebih Ramai Wanita Sebagai Menteri, Timbalan Menteri Apabila PR Mentadbir Negara

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 12:00 AM PST

KUALA LUMPUR, 30 JAN: MP Kota Raja, Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud berharap agar penglibatan wanita di peringkat kementerian dapat dipertingkatkan selepas Pakatan Rakyat (PR) berjaya membentuk kerajaan di Putrajaya.

Gesaan ini dilontarkan ekoran perhatian kecil yang diberikan kini oleh pentadbiran Umno-BN sehinggakan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak terpaksa memangku jawatan Menteri Wanita, Keluarga dan Pembangunan Komuniti.

Menurutnya, perlaksanaan tidak menyeluruh yang diamalkan kerajaan kini mengakibatkan beberapa perkara dibuat tanpa memikirkan mengenai wanita.

"Apabila menang di Putrajaya salah satu cadangan saya setiap kementerian perlu ada wanita sama ada jawatan menteri atau timbalan menteri.

"Ini kerana untuk memastikan agenda wanita yang kita rancangkan bersama dapat dilaksanakan," katanya.

Dr Siti Mariah berkata demikian ketika berucap pada Majlis Makan Malam sempena Kutipan Dana Pilihanraya Umum Ke-13 (PRU-13) anjuran PKR Lembah Pantai semalam.

Agenda Wanita Malaysia yang diperkenalkan Wanita Pakatan Rakyat pada April tahun lalu mengariskan beberapa inisiatif yang bakal dilaksanakan apabila PR berjaya mentadbir negara.

Antaranya adalah caruman berjumlah RM 50 sebulan atau RM 600 setahun untuk golongan suri rumah yang berpendapatan isi rumahnya kurang daripada RM 1,500 sebagai simpanan masa depan.

Selain itu, satu Suruhanjaya Anti-Keganasan Rumah Tangga bakal ditubuhkan bagi melindungi golongan wanita yang sering menjadi mangsa keganasan rumah tangga.

Sementara itu, MP Lembah Pantai, Nurul Izzah Anwar menegaskan, penglibatan wanita penting dalam arena politik negara dalam usaha membawa perubahan kepada Malaysia.

"Kenapa wanita perlu bersama (dalam membawa perubahan)?

"Kita mahu membina Malaysia yang lebih selamat, baik dan untuk rakyat. Bukannya kroni," ujar Nurul Izzah.

Tambah Nurul Izzah, komitmen yang dibawa oleh PR bukan sahaja ingin memacu negara ke arah lebih baik malah terus mempertahankan hak wanita.

Latest Intelligence PR To win 124 Seats, BN 98: RM5 MILLION “Going-Rate” To Lure PR Contestants

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 12:57 AM PST

Malaysia Chronicle

The cat is out of the bag. Despite vows of being able to retain the federal government with two-thirds of the seats in Parliament, Prime Minister Najib Razak is staring at stark defeat.

According to political sources, a survey conducted by a special government intelligence unit showed Najib’s Umno-Barisan Nasional coalition trailing far behind the Pakatan Rakyat led by Anwar Ibrahim with only 98 seats to the Opposition’s 124.

Anwar and PR are expected to win 10 seats in the Federal Territories, 10 in Johor, 11 in Kedah, 12 in Kelantan, 18 in Perak, 17 in Selangor, 1 in Terengganu, 1 in Malacca, 3 in Negeri Sembilan, 5 in Pahang, 0 in Perlis and a total of 25 in Sabah and Sarawak.

“This is a real eye-opener for the big-wigs in Umno. It is no wonder Najib and Mahathir are now so panicky in their response to issues that crop up. They cannot afford to make any mistake at this stage,” Zulkefly Othman, secretary of the security council in Anwar’s PKR party, told Malaysia Chronicle.

RM5mil going rate to “buy over” a PR candidate

Zulkefly, who is also the head of strategy for the PKR Malacca division, expects the going to get “really rough and dirty” in the weeks ahead, with vote-rigging, Opposition-bashing and an avalanche of “election goodies” to deluge the nation as the Umno-BN struggled to retain its 55-year stranglehold on power.

He warns that BN has intensified its lures to Opposition candidates to defect, a threat that he said the PR leadership must beware of and put at the top of its list of electoral risks.

“The going rate is now RM5 mil for a PR candidate and going closer to the GE, we can expect this number to increase. The BN will surely play very dirty and the PR leadership must find ways to counter this,” said Zulkefly.

“To me, this is even more dangerous than the vote-rigging and padding of the electoral rolls. So in choosing their contestants, the top PR leaders must be wise. They must have a plan to prevent this sort of unethical defection and the best way is to recruit only those who are truly sincere and have iron-cast principles. Those who are thick-skinned and not ‘malu’ (shy) to jump ship should not be considered,” Zulkefly said.

Nervous Najib might again delay GE13

Indeed, the nervousness displayed by Umno-BN leaders is visible. Former premier Mahathir Mohamad has been making a return to the limelight in a bid to rally support from the key Malay electorate and even Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has promised the BN may make permanent a cash aid scheme it recently announced so as to get the people to retain the political status quo.

"We don’t want to see such aid be a one-off payment. It should be disbursed on a long-term basis. I believe the Prime Minister will look into BR1M (1Malaysia People’s Aid) as a programme that should be continued. I am sure that it will be continued on a long-term basis when the rakyat (people) retains Barisan as the Federal Government," theStar newspaper reported Muhyiddin as saying after distributing RM100 cash vouchers to students of five schools last week.

However, it may be too late for the BN. No matter what late-hour strategy Najib pulls, many political observers and pundits are of the view that the people will plumb for change, disgusted and fed-up with the rampant and endemic corruption in the BN government.

According to Zulkefly, Najib might use the latest survey to once again delay the GE13. The latest hint coming from those in the PM’s camp are that he will dissolve Parliament on Feb 22, post nominations on Mar 16, with balloting on Mar 30.

“We won’t be surprised. Najib may wait for Parliament to automatically dissolve on April 28 to buy himself and the BN more time. But there is no guarantee they can win back the people. I would say Malaysians are already very annoyed by the delay so far. They have made up their minds and want to vote. If Najib continues to dilly-dally, it will only irritate them more,” said Zulkefly.

Market sell-off, investors wearied by prolonged uncertainty

Even investors are betting on a regime change and recently sold off in anticipation that hardliners in Najib’s party might create unrest if they lost. The benchmark stock market index FBM KLCI suffered its steepest one-day fall in 8 months last week, plunging 40.81 points and losing RM35billion in market capitalization amid speculation Najib would dissolve Parliament on February 22.

“Why must the entire nation- yes all of us – from corporate sector making investment decision to citizens wanting to plan weddings or umrah trip, be subjected to this vagaries of an election date?” asked Dzulkefly Ahmad, the MP for Kuala Selangor who also heads the PAS Research Centre.

In the country’s coming 13th general election, 222 seats in the federal Parliament and 505 state assembly seats in 12 states (excluding Sarawak which held its state assembly election in 2011) will be contested.

In the 2008 election, PR had won 82 seats vs BN’s 140, denying for the first time the Umno-BN government its long-held two-thirds control of Parliament, which allows it to hammer through key changes to the Federal Constitution, the country’s highest law.

In the 2004 election, PR had only managed to win 21 vs BN’s 198. At that time, there were only 219 parliamentary seats were up for contest. Three new seats were created only in the 2008 election – Igan, Sibuti and Limbang in Sarawak.

Wasatiyyah Umno Bila Kroni Bolot Khazanah Negara

Posted: 30 Jan 2013 12:08 AM PST


Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim berkata, wasatiyyah Najib Razak gagal menepati konsep sebenar kerana membiarkan rakyat hidup menderita ketika pemimpin Umno BN rakus membolot khazanah negara.

"Wasatiyyah bukan naikkan harga gula dengan alasan atasi penyakit kencing manis atau biar tauke balak bolot kekayaan angkut keluar hasil hutan tapi rakyat dinasihat hidup sederhana.

"Bukan wasatiyyah apabila anak Raja Nong Chik (Zainal Abidin) dapat kontrak RM40 juta,  anak Shahrizat Jalil gaji sebulan RM30,000, anak Jamaluddin Jarjis kontrak RM100 juta, anak Mahathir (Mohamad), Mokhzani kawal minyak melalui Kenchana Petroleum dan Mirzan pula kuasai syarikat arak terbesar San Miguel yang dibeli RM2.9 bilion.

"Tetapi wasatiyyah adalah usaha pertahankan prinsip kebenaran dan keadilan melalui iman, ilmu dan akhlak seperti yang terkandung dalam Al-Quran," jelas Ketua Umum KEADILAN depan lebih 5,000 rakyat pada Ceramah Jelajah Merdeka Rakyat di Kampung Perak, Temoh Stesen, di sini, malam tadi.

Anwar berkata, Rasulullah diutus Allah sebagai rahmat untuk redakan ketegangan sesama manusia, bukan untuk bergaduh, mengugut atau mengancam penganut agama lain sehingga bertindak membakar Bible seperti dilakukan Pertubuhan Peribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa).

"Punca kemuliaan Nabi Muhammad bukan dari pangkat kekuasaan, keturunan sebagai bangsa Quraisy atau rupa paras tetapi mulianya Baginda kerana akhlak.

"Pada peribadi Baginda ada contoh terbaik dan itulah yang wajib diamalkan dalam politik," katanya.

Dalam pada itu, beliau menempelak AES (Sistem Penguatkuasaan Automatik) yang bebankan hidup rakyat dan gagal atasi masalah sebenar jalan raya.

"Sepatutnya gaji pegawai berkuasa yang berpenat lelah jaga lalu lintas dinaikkan, bukan buat projek penguatkuasa dan beri kepada kroni.

"Sekarang 400,000 saman dikeluarkan dan kerajaan beri BR1M (Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia) untuk bayar saman RM300. Sebab itu kita tekad, Pakatan Rakyat tawan Putrajaya, AES kita batalkan," ujarnya.

Beliau pertikai kegagalan pemimpin Umno memberi kelebihan kepada rakyat melalui gaji minima, pendidikan percuma dan menawarkan harga minyak rendah dengan alasan negara akan bankrap.

"Malaysia memiliki khazanah yang banyak untuk ringankan beban rakyat dengan hasil minyak sahaja RM80 ribu juta, hasil kelapa sawit cecah RM80 ribu juta setahun dan ini cukup untuk beri pendidikan percuma.

"Ini maksud sebenar merdeka bila semua hak rakyat dapat dipulangkan untuk kehidupan lebih terjamin," katanya.

Turut hadir, Pengerusi KEADILAN Negeri, Dr Muhammad Nur Manuty; Ahli Majlis Pimpinan KEADILAN, Mustafa Kamil Ayub; Adun Pasir Panjang, Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin; Ahli Parlimen Gopeng, Dr Lee Boon Chye; Adun Hutan Melintang, S Kesavan; Adun Sungkai, A Sivanesan dan Adun Keranji, Chen Fook Chye.

Terdahulu, Anwar solat maghrib di Asrama Anak Yatim Nurul Ikhsan, Kampung Talang Tengah, Sungai Siput disusuli ceramah di Taman Chandan Puteri, Bukit Chandan.

Once a Pushover, Pakatan Sniffs Power

Posted: 29 Jan 2013 11:46 PM PST


After bloodying the government’s nose in 2008 elections, a more experienced and organised opposition is eyeing the once-unthinkable: toppling one of the world’s longest-serving governments.

Malaysians vote soon with the formerly hapless opposition buoyed by a new track record of state-level government, signs of growing voter support, and what its leader Anwar Ibrahim calls a sense of history in the making.

“I am convinced, insya Allah (God willing), that we will win government,” Anwar told AFP, evoking the winds of change that powered the “Arab Spring” elsewhere in the Muslim world.

“Of course we call it a ‘Malaysian Spring’, but our method is elections (not uprisings).”

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak is expected to call a fresh vote in weeks, pitting his Malay-dominated Barisan Nasional (National Front) coalition against Anwar’s multi-ethnic opposition alliance Pakatan Rakyat (People’s Pact).

The 57-year-old ruling bloc enjoys deep pockets, mainstream media control, an electoral system the opposition says is rigged, and a record of decades of economic growth under its authoritarian template.

Few expect the opposition to win the 112 parliamentary seats needed to take power. The three-party alliance won 82 seats in the 2008 polls, up from 21, stunning the BN with its biggest-ever setback.

But speculation is rife that Pakatan could win enough in the polls – which must be held by late June – to lure ruling coalition defectors and form a government.

“Before this year, many were in denial about Pakatan’s potential. Today, we see society beginning to accept that the possibility (of a BN defeat) is real,” said Wan Saiful Wan Jan (left), who runs the independent Malaysian think tank Ideas.

The country’s stock market has trembled recently over the uncertainty as opinion polls suggest the vote will be tight. One recent survey put Najib and Anwar neck-and-neck as prime ministerial candidates.

In a January 12 show of force, the opposition held a rally that drew close to 100,000 people, paralysing much of the capital Kuala Lumpur in one of Malaysia’s biggest-ever political gatherings.

“I think it’s very close, and the party that makes the least mistakes will be the party that wins,” said Ambiga Sreenavasan, head of Bersih, an NGO coalition that has organised large public rallies for electoral reform.

Pakatan attacks the ruling coalition, and particularly its dominant partner the United Malays National Organisation (Umno), as corrupt, repressive and lacking a long-term vision for Malaysia.

Anwar says Pakatan would end authoritarianism and free the media.

BN could lose 20 more seats

It would lure foreign investment by attacking rampant graft and reforming the system of preferences for Malays that is blamed for harming national econonomic competitiveness and stoking resentment among minority Chinese and Indians.

“The people are committed to reform. There is a legitimate expectation among the public for them to see that reforms do take place,” Anwar said.

Anwar, who was acquitted a year ago on sodomy charges he called a bogus Umno attempt to ruin him politically, has been integral to the opposition’s revival.

The former BN heir-apparent’s spectacular 1998 ouster in a power struggle with then-premier Mahathir Mohamad gifted the opposition a charismatic leader with top government experience to rally around.

The loose alliance of 2008 is stronger today, having since agreed on a common manifesto, and has shown it can govern in four states won five years ago, the most ever in opposition hands. Malaysia has 13 states.

“Cooperation between the parties is much stronger than 2008. They have done more to prepare the ground for new voters,” said leading political pollster Ibrahim Suffian.

Concerns linger over Pakatan’s ability to govern nationally.

Besides Anwar’s multi-racial PKR (People’s Justice Party), it includes PAS (Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party) representing Muslim ethnic Malays, and the secular DAP (Democratic Action Party) dominated by ethnic Chinese.

PAS’s calls for an Islamic state are a source of alliance squabbling, but Anwar dismisses any concern, saying PAS realises the goal is a non-starter in the diverse nation.

Economists, meanwhile, warn that populist Pakatan promises such as free primary-to-university education could sink Malaysia into debt, while noting ever-larger public handouts by Najib’s government also posed a risk.

Najib took office in 2009 and has portrayed himself as a reformer but surveys suggest BN is still viewed as a corruption-plagued, status-quo force.

Eroding minority support, particularly Chinese, that hurt the coalition in 2008 appears to be accelerating, independent polls show, while first-time voters estimated to number up to three million are a question mark.

One top Umno official told AFP that party officials fear the coalition could lose 20 more seats – it now has 140 – raising the spectre of a Pakatan power play.

“All said, Najib still has the advantage, but an opposition victory is clearly possible,” said Bridget Welsh, a Southeast Asian politics expert at Singapore Management University.

Lebih 6 ribu hadir di Ceramah Perdana JMR, Pasir Besar

Posted: 28 Jan 2013 09:24 PM PST

Ceramah Perdana Jelajah Merdeka Rakyat yang berlangsung pada 27 Januari 2013 lalu telah dihadiri lebih daripada enam ribu orang. Ini merupakan ceramah raksasa JMR yang terakhir di Negeri Sembilan sebelum pembubaran parlimen yang dijangka berlaku pada penghujung Febuari ini.

Kali ini, Pasir Besar menjadi lokasi pilihan Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim hadir menyemarakkan semangat perubahan buat rakyat Negeri Sembilan timur khususnya warga peneroka felda dan masyarakat kampung.

Walaupun pelbagai halangan yang sengaja diwujudkan oleh beberapa pihak tidak bertanggungjawab samada melalui ancaman, ugutan dan halangan peraturan, namun program ini berjaya dilangsungkan dengan penuh aman dan pihak berkuasa turut memberi kerjasama yang baik dalam memastikan keselamatan orang ramai.

Pasir Besar merupakan sebuah pekan kecil yang berkedudukan strategik menghubungkan Bandar Bahau, Pekan Rompin, Gugusan Rancangan Palong, Gemenceh dan Gemas. Kehadiran orang ramai melibatkan kawasan-kawasan utama berhampiran Pasir Besar.

Jelas sekali pada malam tersebut, suasana rakyat untuk menghadapi PRU-13 dan membuat perubahan terpancar dengan kehadiran yang luar jangkaan. Semua pimpinan utama PR Negeri Sembilan hadir menjayakan program ini dengan tetamu kehormat iaitu Datuk Lajim Ukin.

Pimpinan utama PR Negeri Sembilan iaitu Pengerusi Keadilan NS, YB Dato Kamarul Baharin Abbas, Pengerusi DAP NS-YB Loke Siew Fook dan Pesuruhjaya PAS NS-YB Mohd Taufek Abdul Ghani menyampaikan ucapan pemecah semangat sebelum disambung oleh Datuk Lajim Ukin dan diakhiri oleh DS Anwar Ibrahim.

Jika kehadiran ini diterjemahkan dalam bentuk undi, tidak mustahil beberapa dun di Jempol dan Tampin seperti Jeram Padang, Palong dan Gemas mampu dimenangi oleh PR.
