Corruption, Cronyism, Nepotism

The above title consists of the very words that are being used by the Opposition, from the days of the Barisan Alternatif through its current form, the Pakatan Harapan.

Those words remain as their battle cry to convince voters that the Barisan Nasional, in particular UMNO, is corrupted to the core.

Hence, when long before 1MDB and the RM2.6 billion story ever happened Najib Razak announced in 2012 that the BN was to have its candidates’ list for GE13 screened by the MACC, everyone treated that as a sign of the end of the world as predicted by the Mayans.

However, the Barisan Nasional did submit its list of election candidates to the MACC recently, whereas it is the Opposition that has been resisting a similar move!


In an attempt to spin the BN’s move into something negative, left-leaning The Malaysian Incite quoted unnamed sources within UMNO lamenting the arrest of BN figures such as Latif Bandi, Isa Samad et al but failed to mention that that is the same reaction that the PKR and DAP gave when their ranks were arrested for corruption.

Well, my unnamed party insider told me even BEFORE the Haj season that the BN supreme council is happy that far lesser people have thronged the PWTC promoting themselves as GE14’s candidates ever since Najib Razak decided to submit the list to the MACC.

The Pakatan Harapan is far from being clean. Cheats and corrupted people thrive there too with the likes of Adam Rosly, the UNISEL scandal, Chegu Bard’s various reports on corrupted practices by Azmin Ali, the investigation into DAP’s corrupt practices that resulted in the death of Teoh Beng Hock, Phee Boon Poh’s abuse of position, Lim Guan Eng’s double corruption charge, just to name a few.

Let us also not forget chronic liar Rafizi Ramli who was not only found guilty of lying but also for disclosing to the public contents of documents protected under the Laws which is a breach of trust by a Parliamentarian whose job is to protect such trusts.

Recently he was exposed to have been paying himself through his own companies for services rendered to his own company in the region of RM100,000 per transaction. He also solicited funds from the public to help him pay for damages he caused the NFC by publishing lies about them.

Yet, he did not pay up as ordered by the court and chose to allow NFC to file a bankruptcy notice against him. We wonder what happened to the millions of Ringgits collected to pay NFC? Did he use the money to pay his own self?

Yet the PKR chose to protect such compulsive criminals within their ranks thinking that the voters of today have the same IQ as the ones in the 1950s, that they are stupid enough to judge. Hence the reaction by Wan Azizah when the MACC suggested for PKR’s candidates be screened by the latter.

DAP, too, reacted negatively towards the MACC’s suggestion. Pulau Pinang’s Deputy Chief Minister Ramasamy a/l Palanisamy said that the MACC cannot vet the DAP’s candidates list as the former lacks the moral authority to do so as it is reticent about those involved in the 1MDB although they have been named by the US Department of Justice (DoJ).

Again this shows the stupidity of the people in the Pakatan Harapan either by defaut or by design, with the latter perhaps trying to make fools out of their supporters.

We all know that the MACC had declared that the donation received by the account of Najib Razak was not from the 1MDB and at no point was Najib Razak ever named in the DoJ case.  He was only mentioned as Malaysian Official 1 because he is not the subject under any form of investigation by the DoJ.

Furthermore, the case that is being investigated by the DoJ, made public more than a year ago, has not gained much grounds as it is based on the reports made by Datuk Botox and Matthias Chang, the office and despatch boys of U-Turn Mahathir.  If it was a solid criminal case, we would be sitting in front of the TV watching CNN while stuffing our face with popcorn.

The party that has a lot to do with corruption thus refusing the MACC’s help to clean its candidates list is the DAP, and not just the PKR.  With Phee Boon Poh, Lim Guan Eng and maybe soon others as well, both the PKR and DAP would have a very short list of candidates that it will not be enough to cover the constituencies it already holds even if all of them ran for both Parliamentary and state seats.

That is also why Lim Guan Eng desperately clings on to power and fights on all corners to have his corruption charges dismissed on technical reasons rather than answering the charges made against him, just as long as he could remain as the corrupted but jail-free Chief Minister.

But of course, in the course of trying to discredit the MACC, Pakatan Harapan would throw everything at the MACC including the kitchen sink and onions too, a tactic they have been using against all government agencies since before the 1969 general elections.  When they lose, they will automatically blame the voters and the voting system.  Then again, what else is new?

This is why the public needs to rally its support towards having cleaner candidates to run for public office.  Although there is nothing in the law that says that candidates must be vetted, the MACC is the agency that should be doing the vetting of candidates to ensure that they do not have the tendency to be corrupted.

Having said that, this is also the reason the MACC should be given more manpower and remuneration reviewed, as should the PDRM, instead of having Paul Low’s JITN to be formed as a new department, burdening the government further with an increased budget.

I do not know what is Paul Low’s agenda in wanting to interfere with the MACC and other institution of integrity but the nasty smell his move has made stinks all the way from Perdana Putra to Padang Besar.  You can read more what a blogger thinks Paul Low is doing and let you be the judge of it. Nothing dissimilar to what Lim Kit Siang is doing now.  But I will come back to that in another post later.

All I know is that for the MACC to combat corruption effectively it needs a boost in manpower and expertise, a boost in remuneration, and a pledge that it shall remain independent as a Commission.

Zakar Zairil Naik

Apparently the hand-holding incident involving Zairil Christopher of DAP and FMT’s Nawar Firdaws took place in Kuching.

Nawar Firdaws is also said to be the girl seen intimately dancing with Zairil Christopher in several photos at a drinking hole in the Hartamas area.

She is recognised for almost always writing against Islamic preacher Zakir Naik.


Both the DAP and web portal FMT are still silent over this issue.

While not openly defending Zairil Christopher, it is expected that Zairil Christopher would be exonerated by the DAP simply because he is Tokong’s errand boy and is the one actively screwing the Malays.


This is the general style of the Pakatan that fights for the people. Those who are not in the circle of those in power will get chucked out while those who rub shoulders with party supremos get away with murder.

For instance, Rafizi Ramli who is from Wan Azizah’s camp and had been found guilty in a court of law on at least four occasions for incitement and slander is still regarded as a hero.

Adam Rosly who is not from Wan Azizah’s camp, charged in court for giving false statements to the SPRM will be given disciplinary action by PKR.

Loh Chee Heng, the Selangor ADUN accused by the DAP of corruption was expelled from the party. He has never been charged in court for the alleged corrupt practice.

Yet, Tokong Lim Guan Eng, the Chief Corrupted Minister of Pulau Pinang, is still running the administration of both the Pulau Pinang state government and the DAP. He was charged in court for corrupt practices while being in office, the same way some Javanese guy was jailed for.

Meanwhile, the always Missing-In-Action MP for Gelang Patah, Emperor Lim Kit Siang, has been going around meeting voters in Pulau Pinang – something he does not do in his own constituency.


Dà Shi Kit Siang knows that it is only a matter of time that his son the Tokong will be languishing in jail and somebody needs to keep the Lim Dynasty in power.

Of course the Tokong will never get expelled from the DAP for being corrupted. That is how it works in North Korea as well.

And neither will FMT be giving it much coverage either. The only thing that would be of interest to the portal’s writer is Zakar Zairil Naik.

Parti Kencingan Rafizi

Taukeh Disneyland Ampang, Adam Rosly, yang dikatakan berada di pihak Azmin Ali telahpun dihadapkan di mahkamah atas pertuduhan berkaitan dengan perbuatan rasuah.

Adam dituduh di bawah Seksyen 32(8)(c) dan Seksyen 89 Akta Pencegahan Pengubahan Wang Haram dan Pencegahan Pembiayaan Keganasan, 2001. Jika disabitkan kesalahan, Adam boleh dipenjarakan tidak melebihi satu tahun atau denda tidak melebihi RM1 juta atau kedua-duanya sekali bagi setiap pertuduhan.

Dengan segera Sotong-tersohor  Saudari Rafizi Ramli menyarankan agar PKR menjauhkan diri dari dikaitkan dengan Adam Rosly.


Dalam pada itu, Ketua Angkatan Muda PKR Saudara Nik Nazmi pula cadangkan agar keahlian Adam Rosly dalam pergerakan tersebut digantung.


Sekiranya tindakan tidak diambil terhadap Adam Rosly maka Azmin Ali menghadapi risiko ditohmah sebagai pembela ahli yang lakukan rasuah.

Persoalan seterusnya ialah, adakah PKR juga akan menjauhkan diri dari Rafizi dan menggantung keahliannya setelah empat kali didapati bersalah kerana menabur fitnah dan menghasut?


Atau adakah PKR selesa dikenali sebagai parti yang dikemudi oleh seorang yang terbukti pemfitnah dan penghasut?

Kalau nak bertindak, bertindaklah terhadap kedua-duanya sekali. Nama pun KEADILAN.
