Pakatan Cry Babies
Barely a few hours after Najib Razak’s announcing of the budget for 2018, the DAP came up with the above graphic to inform the people that (as usual) Najib Razak’s budget is a copycat budget.

But is it?

It must be remembered that the budget announced by Najib Razak will be implemented nationwide whereas the “Pakatan budget” mentioned in the graphic above is a pick-and-choose budget that only one has been implemented in just one state administered by Pakatan, and not a nationwide solution.

Abolish All Tolls

The Barisan Nasional (BN) -led government announced that from 1 January 2018, tolls at four locations, actually, will be abolished.  They are the Batu Tiga toll on the Federal Highway, the Sungai Rasau toll near Klang that is also on the Federal Highway, the EDL highway toll in Johor Bahru as well as the Bukit Kayu Hitam toll in Kedah.

Pakatan Harapan proposed to abolish all toll collections.  But it has not explained how they plan to compensate in the region of billions to the toll concessionaires for all the money that they have put into the highways they operate and loss of future earnings.

Furthermore, Pakatan promised since before GE12 to abolish toll collection at the Sungai Nyior toll plaza in Pulau Pinang but has not done so to-date.

Pakatan’s de facto a third of a leader, Anwar Ibrahim, had in fact made a promise not too long ago to not allow toll charges to be increased on highways they have shares in, namely, the LDP, KESAS and SPRINT.  So far they have done nothing. If they cannot even control the highways that they have substantial shares in how can we hope for them to abolish all tolls?

Anwar’s broken promise
Pakatan’s alternative budget is also unreliable when it comes to the abolishment of toll on highways.  Azmin Ali as the Menteri Besar of Selangor admitted that it was not going to be easy for them to reduce tolls let alone abolish them on highways where the state government has shares in.

Azmin Ali’s admission that it is difficult to reduce toll rates on highways Selangor has shares in
But instead of reducing or abolishing tolls, Azmin Ali introduced three new tolled highways namely the Sungai Besi-Ulu Klang Elevated Expressway (SUKE), the East Klang Valley Expressway (EKVE), and the Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH).  This is a total of 89 kilometres of new tolled highways offered by the Pakatan government versus the 2,083 kilometres  toll-free Pan Borneo Highway offered by the Barisan Nasional government.

Instead of reducing or scrapping tolls, Azmin introduced three more tolled highways in Selangor
So, who is Pakatan trying to kid when it says it wants to abolish tolls on highways?  What funds do they plan to use to acquire the concessions from concessionaires?  The government is able to abolish tolls at four locations because three of them are under PLUS which is 100 percent government-owned through UEM and EPF, and one under MRCB which has Bank Rakyat and Tabung Haji, both are government entities, as shareholders.

Another puzzling behaviour of the Pakatan is that while it claims that it will abolish tolls in total, or in Selangor or Sungai Nyior only, or just reduce the rates, it has been proven that they are just a bag filled with hot air. It has been almost a decade since their coming into power in Pulau Pinang and Selangor yet they have nothing to show. So when the BN government abolishes tolls at four locations, the reaction from them should be one of sheer happiness. Yet they seem to be otherwise. Why?

One example is Azmin’s communications director Yin Shao Loong who is unaware that the concession period for the Batu Tiga toll was extended to 2038 and not 2018.

Had the Batu Tiga toll concession period been extended, the rate users would be paying according to the original agreement signed during Mahathir’s period is RM2.40 instead of the RM1.10 users are enjoying now.

In a way, the recent offer by Maju Holdings Sdn Bhd to buy the PLUS Expressway from UEM and EPF and not increase toll rates on the highway for 20 years may have triggered the government’s decision to abolish toll collection at those four highways.  I still hope that the PM could bring all the relevant parties together to discuss the proposal as it surely benefits the rakyat if feasible.

Abolishing the GST

Prior to the introduction of the 6-percent Goods & Services Tax (GST), business owners were charged the 16-percent Sales & Services Tax (SST).  The Sales Tax was a federal consumption tax imposed on a wide variety of goods, and governed by the Sales Tax Act 1972. The Service Tax, also a federal consumption tax, was levied on customers who consumed certain taxable services, and was governed by the Service Tax Act 1975.

GST versus SST (courtesy of Bloomberg BNA)
The SST was a single stage of consumption tax where businesses cannot recover the tax paid on their purchases. This tax will be treated as a cost to business.  However, it was not a transparent form of taxation as many business owners fail to declare their taxes through transfer pricing.  The GST introduces transparency, curbs the inefficiencies, tax-payment and misappropriation issues  of the SST.

This incurred the wrath of big business owners as they can no longer hide actual sales figures to avoid being taxed.

As opposed to the SST where every single item is taxed 16 percent, household items such as but not limited to sugar, flour, cooking oil, vegetables, fish, meat, poultry and services such as healthcare, education, public transport, housing and agriculture land are exempted from the GST.  If there is a spike in the prices of these items, it is the business owners that are to be blamed for marking up prices, and consumers can report them to the KPDNKK.

It is the efficient way to collect tax from businesses that has helped the government to find an alternative form of income when price of oil have gone down tremendously.

Pakatan wants to either revert back to the SST system but has not mentioned how it plans to make up for the loss of income since oil prices cannot be depended upon, or zero-rate everything as per its alternative budget if it decides to keep the GST system, with the option to increase the rates later.

Again, Pakatan is not being transparent to the masses.

120-Day Maternity Leave versus 90-Day Maternity Leave

There are two aspects to look at when talking about maternity leaves.  First, on the employers’ side – a worker that is unable to perform her duty taxes the company as she receives full pay during her absence, and other workers have to double up to do her work.  Second, going by the concept of ‘iddah of a divorced woman – the waiting period is three menstrual cycles or three months.  I did not use the example of a widow’s waiting period because that includes a period to sufficiently overcome a huge part of grief.

Let us compare with other Muslims countries:

Bangladesh – 112 days: 8 weeks (56 days) before delivery and 8 weeks (56 days) after delivery.

Indonesia – 3 months (90 days)

Pakistan – 90 days (45 before delivery and 45 after)

Oman – 100 days (50 days before and 50 days after)

Qatar – 50 days

Saudi Arabia – 70 days

Syria – 50 days

UAE – 45 days

Yemen – 60 days

Pakatan wants to implement 120 days maternity leave, but evidence shows that after introducing a 90-day maternity leave for Selangor’s civil servants, only 30 employees have actually utilised the 90-day leave in full.

Not many took up the 90-day maternity leave provided by the Selangor state government

I guess 90 days about stretches the limit, especially for employers providing 100 percent pay during maternity leave.

TAWAS versus ADAM50

Tabung Warisan Selangor (TAWAS) is a RM100 one-off gift for every child born in Selangor with the hope of accumulating RM1,500 when they are eligible to withdraw the money when they turn 18.  Amanah Dana Anak Malaysia 2050 (ADAM50) is a 200-unit gift in the form of a trust fund for 2.8 million Malaysian babies born from 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2022. The 200 units will be credited automatically in the unit trust funds managed by Amanah Saham Nasional Bhd after the registration process is completed by their parents or guardian.

TAWAS was launched in 2008 as part of fulfilling Pakatan Rakyat Selangor’s manifesto promise. Between 2008 and 2011, RM588,391 was spent on advertising and promotion for TAWAS but less than 20 percent of newborns (60,972 out of 313,706) in Selangor were registered by the end of 2011.

The Selangor state government had no choice but to extend the registration deadline to allow for more participants but as at 22 July 2014, only 159,953 registration was collected.  The total number of live childbirths in Selangor was 421,652 by the end of 2012. By end of August 2017, TAWAS only managed to get 280,568 registrations.

TAWAS started off with funds amounting to RM13.5 million but the state government has had to spend RM22.87 million annually on TAWAS despite getting only 19.4 percent registration.  Why is there a need to spend so much on so few participants?

The Auditor-General reported that TAWAS, which was formed under the Menteri Besar Selangor (Pemerbadanan) through Yayasan Warisan Anak Selangor (YAWAS) failed to submit documents of issuance of Fixed Deposit Certificates (SST) between YAWAS and AmBank to the auditors.

There is no standard operating procedures (SOP) to fix a deadline for the issuance of SST to the participants from the date the registration was made or was approved. Audit checks found that there is no record of actual of issuance and receipt of actual SST to and from participants.

The TAWAS system only provides information on SST that had been prepared by AmBank, furthermore even YAWAS does not have detailed records on the interests received for each of the SST issued,” the report added.

ADAM50 is managed by Perbadanan Nasional Berhad (PNB) which has been managing funds such as Amanah Saham Nasional, Amanah Saham Bumiputra and Amanah Saham Malaysia.  The 200 incentive units and all dividends received on this initial amount of ADAM50 can only be redeemed when the child reaches 18 years of age.

Pakatan cannot even handle a far smaller fund efficiently and it wants to compare itself to a single corporation that handles funds in excess of RM265 billion.  Where has all the millions of Ringgits pumped into TAWAS gone to despite not getting the number of participants it had envisaged in 2008?

The Return of Petrol Subsidies

I won’t even go there. Everyone knows the removal of subsidies is so that it could be chanelled to the target groups instead of providing everyone, even foreigners, with subsidised petrol.

The Pakatan budget plans to subsidise only cars and motorcycles below 1,000cc. Only the Perodua Kancil and Perodua Viva would fit into the given category. How would the petrol pump know what cars are below 1,000cc and which ones are 1,000cc and above?

Other Pakatan Budget Jokes

While the BN government strives to lower taxes Pakatan’s alternative budget plans to introduce, on top of the 16 percent SST, an Inheritance Tax, Capital Gains Tax and increase Personal Income Tax to make up for the loss of income through the abolishment of the GST. Yet the pantywaist Pakatan have the cheek to cry foul and claim that the BN’s budget is oppressive.

So I will leave it up to you to decide whom to choose come GE14.

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.

Din Merican’s take on the announcement by Najib Razak in 2012

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.

Fan-wielding Taiji master tai-chi-ing all efforts to make PKR clean

 

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).

Ramasamy a/l Periasamy

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.

Coordinatedly Stupid

Before I continue, please let me congratulate a few people here. This Merdeka spirit is certainly in the air now.

I would like to congratulate the Malaysian SEA Games 2017 team for the highest Gold medal tally thus far.  145 Gold medals bagged out of 404 out for grabs.  That accounts for 35.9 percent of Gold medals for this Games.  The last time we had SEA Games here in Kuala Lumpur we could only manage 111 out of 391, and that made only 28.4 percent.  If anyone were to put a “Rindu Zaman Mahathir” hashtag to KL2017, this would be the best time to do so.

Quick to claim credit for Malaysia’s victory is Azmin Ali who said that it was Selangor’s policies that had helped Malaysia achieve this victory.  Someone should remind that this is not SUKMA or MSSM. This was a national effort and many Gold medals also came from people who are not part of Selangor.

Due to Selangor’s policies, Azmin runs faster than Anak Jantan when being chased by the MACC

Secondly, I would like to congratulate Mr Sotong himself.  Yes, today the Appellate Court awarded him with RM10,000 which Pemuda UMNO’s Azwan Bro has to pay on top of the RM1.5 million he managed to squeeze out of 7,000 odd “donors” who believe in his dysfunctional NGO, that had gotten fellow party member Latheefa Koya’s boxers in knots, accusing Rafizi of getting help from the Deputy Prime Minister.  Maybe Latheefa has realised that not once has Rafizi ever attacked the DPM openly, not after 21 August 2013.  But with Najib Razak, no matter how many times he’s found guilty for telling lies, he keeps up his attacks. Maybe Rafizi is an UMNO agent as claimed. It does make you wonder doesn’t it? Only Rafizi can answer this.

 

Azwan Bro has to pay Mr Sotong RM10,000 after losing an appeal

My final congratulation goes out to the Judiciary system for proving time and time again that it is free from political influence.  The same Court that gave Mr Sotong RM10,000 also found U-Turn Mahathir’s claim and insistence that Najib Razak is a ‘public officer‘ is a total FARCE.  The verdict could have gone the other way round had this taken place before 2003, and those who love the “Rindu Zaman Mahathir” hashtag should again apply the hashtag to this event.

Najib Razak is neither a person that is material to the now-paused DoJ suit, nor is he a public officer as claimed

Now, back to the main story.  Today, two people attacked the MACC using the same points.  They are R Nadeswaran, a former journalist last seen wth the Sun Daily, and Eric Paulsen the lawyer who is never seen upholding the law and is always challenging the spirit of the Federal Constitution.

If you don’t call this “co-ordinated” then I don’t know what co-ordination is

Nades in his piece said that a lot have been said in criticising the MACC previously but the MACC has never reacted in the same manner as it has reacted towards the Phee Boon Poh case.  Back in those days he wrote, people used to ask why hadn’t the MACC gone for the “sharks” and the “whales” but instead get all the “small fries.”

But back in those days the MACC was the darling of the Opposition too.  I am sure you would all remember how glory-hunter Lim Kit Siang told the world that the MACC’s crusade must be supported.

“Gua salam, gua angkat gambar. Apa mahu helan? Mahathir gua benci pun gua bole cium sikalang.”

Let us not talk about the “back in those days
stuff now shall we?  Else we could also use the “Rindu Zaman Mahathir” hashtag here too and do comparisons on how many whales and sharks have been arrested by the MACC’s predecessors.

Lim Kit Siang et al stopped supporting the MACC’s crusade when several of theirs have been found to be whales and sharks too!  Where is the consistency in fighting corruption here?

Eric Paulsen even added why must MACC take such an intolerant and extreme view when the issue being commented upon is of public interest?

For Eric Paulsen MACC is being intolerant as, as put by Nades, in the past there had been lots of opportunities for the MACC to sue people but never did.

Again, that’s in the past.  I wonder if either Nades or Eric Paulsen realised that none of those making noise in the World Wide Web over MACC’s catching of small fries were under investigation, as Phee Boon Poh still is.  He was released from remand and is still under investigation. He has not been exonerated from any offence nor has he had any charge dropped.

And as Phee Boon Poh was remanded by the order of a Magistrate, who, in the opinion of the High Court, had erred, how does receiving a Magistrate’s remand order and executing the order be an illegal detention as the Opposition is trying to paint?

A Magistrate acts within the ambits of the law.  He interpreted the law in his learned capacity.  It was the High Court that had a different interpretation.  And now the MACC is asking the Appellate Court (yes the one that made Sotong a victor and Mr U-Turn a loser) for its interpretation of the same.

And again, a reminder, Phee Boon Poh is still being investigated. He has not been charged and then found not guilty.

The remand would only have been illegal only if the MACC refuses to release Phee after the remand order was set aside.

As for Nades, a big fish such as a whale or a shark would be nothing less than having Najib Razak in the accused dock.  Such view is already biased and myopic.  Which is the reason I do not refer to him according to his nom de plume CITIZEN Nades, as I too, am a CITIZEN and he does not speak on behalf of me.

Nades asked why has the MACC not said anything about the SRC International which, accroding to Nades, was investigated by the MACC but they had nothing to show, implying that the investigation has already been concluded.

This is the peeve that I and a few defence bloggers have about the quality f our journalists – they don’t read. They often wait to be spoonfed with press releases and type away so that the agency they represent would be the first to publish it.

Back in early last year, the MACC had investigated the so-called involvement of Najib Razak in SRC International and had found nothing that could incriminate the Prime Minister.  So on the road leading to Najib Razak it was ‘No Further Action.’

However, investigation papers have been opened for the people who actually ran SRC International and that is still in the investigation process. Must MACC tell everything about the case to the whole world?

Even DAP’s darling Pony Tua, Mr Tell-All-BS, who is a member of the PAC found that Najib Razak is not accountable for 1MDB’s dealings.  Yes, he agreed to that and signed the PAC report on 1MDB.  He, and several other PAC members from the Opposition.

So, there have you.  Phee Boon Poh is being investigated so he should not make any statement trying to influence a court of public opinion. And neither Lim Guan Eng, nor Nades, nor Eric Paulsen should also try to unfluence a court of public opinion by saying that Phee Boon Poh was illegally detained.

Lastly, The Star has again published something by socialist law teacher Azmi Sharom who goes on and on about how we have voted for the same people every time there is a general election despite popular votes going otherwise.

This is not the first time The Star has given face to leftists.  They published something from Azmi Sharom back in 2013 too.

He calls himself a law teacher but is clueless about the nation’s histry. How can he know any law?

Have we actually chosen the same people again and again and again for the past 60 years? Really?

As a law teacher he ought to know that we have not voted the same people.  Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Razak, Tun Dr Ismail, Tun HS Lee, Tun Tan Siew Sin, Tun Sambanthan, Tun Manickavasagam, Tun Omar Ong, Tun Ghafar to name a few stalwarts from the Alliance and BN have stood down from elections.

I know for sure that for the past 48 years Lim Kit Siang has been an election candidate, from Kota Melaka to Gelang Patah, and now is planning to move to Pulau Pinang and/or Kedah.  We also have a 92-year old dictator who has also offered to contest for Pakatan Harapan.

And as for popular vote, is that the legal voting system that we are practising here in this country? If so, why should we vote by constituency?  I personally opine that Azmi Sharom is either one stupid person, or is maliciously misleading the people of Malaysia with his lies, and The Star, for publishing such claim, is equally guilty for abetting to the offence no matter the disclaimer.

Do you know really want to know what freedom is?  Freedom is being free from ignorance, free from being stupid.  And especially free from coordinated stupidity.

Keep Malaysia stupid-free for the next 60 years and more please!

 

Rakyat Bukan Hakim Negara

 

Sudah menjadi kelaziman ahli politik masa kini terutamanya di kalangan pembangkang untuk membuat kenyataan kepada umum kononnya mereka bersih dan tidak bersalah setelah pihak berkuasa menangkap atau menggeledah premis mereka.

Tujuan kenyataan tersebut dibuat tidak lain tidak bukan tetapi untuk membina persepsi umum bahawa mereka menjadi mangsa kezaliman politik dan agensi-agensi penguatkuasaan adalah alat bagi pemerintah untuk menindas pihak pembangkang.

Setelah Lim Guan Eng dihadapkan ke mahkamah atas pertuduhan rasuah dan salahguna kuasa tahun lepas, beliau dengan segera mengadakan satu sidang akhbar yang digunakan secukupnya untuk membidas pihak kerajaan terutamanya SPRM yang didakwanya telah sengaja cuba untuk menghalang beliau dari bersuara.

Guan Eng menuduh BN membuat silap mata dengan menangkap beliau

Tanpa menunggu perbicaraan dilangsungkan dan tanpa menunggu bahan bukti serta keterangan para saksi, Azmin Ali (yang pentadbirannya juga kini disiasat SPRM) dengan pantas mengisytiharkan beliau yakin Lim Guan Eng bersih dari perlakuan rasuah.

Azmin yakin Guan Eng tidak bersalah walaupun belum melihat dan mendengar bukti serta keterangan saksi

Baru-baru ini, Mr “So What?” Pulau Pinang, Phee Boon Poh, telah ditahan oleh SPRM kerana terlibat dalam isu salahguna kuasa berkaitan dengan kebenaran beroperasi sebuah kiang haram di Sungai Lembu.

Apabila dibebaskan dari tahanan reman, Phee Boon Poh dengan segera membuat sidang media dan membuat kenyataan bahawa beliau tidak bersalah salaupun kes masih lagi dalam siasatan.

Malah semasa Phee Boon Poh ditangkap, Lim Kit Siang sendiri telah membuat kenyataan bahawa tangkapan itu adalah untuk mengaburi mata rakyat terhadap gejala rasuah yang berlaku di dalam negara ini.  Apa yang sebenarnya berlaku ialah percubaan DAP untuk mengaburi mata rakyat terhadap kepincangan pentadbiran mereka sendiri.

DAP mana ada lasuah. Kita sapu saja sumua benda

Perkara yang sama juga dilakukan oleh Pengarah Komunikasi Strategik di pejabat Menteri Besar Selangor, Yin Shao Loong, menyifatkan serbuan ke atas UNISEL, Jana Niaga Sdn Bhd dan Menteri Besar DiPerbadankan sebagai usaha untuk menjejaskan imej kerajaan negeri Selangor.

Mahkamah menghakimi perlakuan jenayah, bukannya pendapat rakyat

Apa yang dilakukan oleh mereka di atas adalah bertentangan dengan Seksyen 48(h) Akta Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah, 2009.  Ketua Pesuruhjaya SPRM Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad telah mengeluarkan satu kenyataan media seperti berikut:

KENYATAAN MEDIA SPRM

SPRM BERI AMARAN TIDAK KELUARKAN KENYATAAN MEDIA BERHUBUNG SIASATAN KES

Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) memberi amaran tegas kepada mana-mana pihak atau individu agar tidak mengeluarkan sebarang kenyataan media berhubung kes yang sedang disiasat.

SPRM mendapati perkara tersebut telah menjadi satu trend atau amalan ketika ini dan menasihati mereka yang berkenaan supaya memberhentikan perbuatan tersebut kerana ia boleh mengganggu dan menjejaskan perjalanan siasatan.

SPRM memandang serius perkara ini kerana perbuatan tersebut merupakan satu kesalahan di bawah Seksyen 48(h) Akta Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (ASPRM) 2009 yang menjelaskan bahawa “mana-mana orang yang mengganggu, menakutkan, mengancam atau melarikan atau cuba untuk mengganggu, menakutkan, mengancam atau melarikan mana-mana orang yang terlibat dalam penyiasatan di bawah Akta ini telah melakukan satu kesalahan.”

Mana-mana individu atau pihak yang mempunyai sebarang keterangan yang boleh membantu siasatan diminta tampil kepada SPRM untuk dirakam percakapan dan bukan membuat kenyataan media.

Justeru, SPRM tidak akan teragak-agak untuk mengambil tindakan terhadap mana-mana individu yang melakukan perbuatan tersebut mengikut Seksyen 48(h) ASPRM yang mana seseorang yang didapati bersalah boleh dikenakan denda tidak melebihi RM10,000 dan penjara dua tahun.

Selain itu, SPRM juga memandang serius perbuatan segelintir pihak yang mengeluarkan kenyataan berbaur fitnah terhadap tindakan-tindakan yang diambil oleh SPRM dengan tujuan untuk mencemarkan dan menjejaskan reputasi SPRM.

Oleh yang demikian, SPRM tidak akan sama sekali bertolak ansur dengan perbuatan sedemikian dan bersedia untuk mengambil tindakan terhadap mereka yang didapati menyebarkan fitnah tersebut sama ada berbentuk sivil atau jenayah.

Eloklah pihak pembangkang berpegang kepada slogan mereka iaitu “Lawan Tetap Lawan“, “Berani Kerana Benar” dan lain-lain lagi yang menunjukkan yang kononnya mereka tidak bersalah, dan lawan serta tunjukkan kebenaran di dalam mahkamah dan bukannya cuba mempengaruhi persepsi rakyat supaya menghakimi SPRM dan bukannya mereka yang disyakki bersalah.

Dan rakyat, terutamanya para penyokong pembangkang pula sepatutnya mengikut saranan Lim Kit Siang dua tahun lepas bulan ini yang telah dilupai beliau sendiri semasa kehangatan kes 1MDB berada di kemuncak:

APABILA SPRM DISERANG, ADALAH MENJADI TANGGUNGJAWAB KITA UNTUK MEMPERTAHANKAN INSTITUSI INI – Lim Kit Siang, 6 Ogos 2015 (Ihsan Wakeup Malaya)

Cakap, kena serupa bikin ya!

Selangor Anggap Serbuan Memerangi Rasuah Menjejaskan Imejnya

Selangor masih belum tandatangani Ikrar Bebas Rasuah

Hari ini Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) telah membuat serbuan ke atas Universiti Selangor (UNISEL) dan Menteri Besar Diperbadankan (MBI) bagi menyiasat pertikaian kontrak membabitkan universiti itu dengan bekas kontraktor, Jana Niaga Sdn Bhd, dan dakwaan rasuah membabitkan RM10 juta.

Serbuan ini telah mendatangkan rasa tidak puas hati di pihak kerajaan negeri Selangor.  Pengarah Komunikasi Strategik di pejabat Menteri Besar Selangor, Yin Shao Loong, menyifatkan serbuan tersebut sebagai usaha untuk menjejaskan imej kerajaan negeri Selangor.

Ia secara terang-terangan menunjukkan tindakan terancang bertujuan menjejaskan imej kerajaan Selangor yang tuntas berpegang kepada prinsip ketelusan dan kebertanggungjawaban,” kata Shao Loong. “SPRM dituntut supaya menyiasat secara profesional dan tidak dipengaruhi oleh tekanan politik.”

Beliau menambah bahawa tekanan politik ke atas SRPM hanya akan mencalar persepsi dan menghakis keyakinan rakyat terhadap agensi anti-rasuah itu.

“Mana rasuah? Mana ada rasuah di Selangor?”

Persoalannya, adakah benar SPRM dikenakan tekanan politik untuk bertindak terhadap para pegawai kerajaan di negeri-negeri yang ditadbir oleh pihak pembangkang?  Jikalau benar, siapa pula yang mengenakan tekanan politik supaya Exco Kerajaan Negeri Johor Latif Bandi dan Veteran UMNO Isa Samad ditangkap?  Barisan Nasional atau Pakatan Harapan?

Ini memang lumrah pihak pembangkang menuding jari apabila mereka sendiri amalkan budaya hidup rasuah.  Mereka akan mencari jalan keluar dengan menyalahkan orang lain.

Contoh terbaik adalah apabila beberapa orang Exco Kerajaan Negeri Selangor disiasat oleh SPRM setahun selepas mereka memegang kuasa pentadbiran di negeri tersebut – YA! BARU SETAHUN SUDAH ADA KES RASUAH!  Malangnya, saksi yang disoalsiasat ketika itu, Teoh Beng Hock, mati semasa dalam tahanan SPRM.  Namun, kematian tersebut dipertanggung jawabkan kepada pihak SPRM dan Barisan Nasional seolah-olah kematian Beng Hock memberi manfaat kepada BN dan bukannya mereka-mereka yang disyaki yang berada dalam kerajaan negeri Selangor yang diterajui mereka.

Minggu lepas, Nurul Izzah mengecam SPRM kerana menyerbu sebuah kilang haram dan juga pejabat Exco Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang, Phee Boon Poh.  Kata Nurul Izzah lagi, keyakinan rakyat terhadap SPRM berada di tahap yang rendah.  Beliau menuduh SPRM sengaja mengenakan ahli politik dari Pakatan dengan pertuduhan-pertuduhan yang remeh untuk menjejaskan pihak pembangkang.

Nurul Izzah berkata sentimen rakyat terhadap SPRM terjejas akibat serbuan di Pulau Pinang

Hari ini, Yin Shao Loong pula telah menggunakan ayat yang sama iaitu persepsi rakyat terhadap SPRM telah tercalar.

Selangor ialah satu-satunya negeri yang masih belum menandatangani ‘Ikrar Bebas Rasuah‘ yang disarankan oleh pihak SPRM.  Walaupun Menteri Besar Selangor Azmin Ali tidak pernah mengeluarkan sebarang kenyataan mengenai perkara tersebut sendiri, beliau telah diwakili oleh jurucakap beliau iaitu Iskandar Abdul Samad dari parti PAS.

Iskandar Abdul Samad pernah berkata bahawa Selangor mempunyai caranya tersendiri yang lebih baik untuk menangani gejala rasuah dan salahguna kuasa

Yang menghairankan ialah kerajaan negeri Kelantan yang diterajui oleh PAS telah menandatangani Ikrar tersebut.  Malah, Pulau Pinang yang bergelumang dengan kes rasuah juga telah menandatangani Ikrar tersebut.  Kenapa Selangor yang setahun jagung sudah disiasat kerana gejala rasuah enggan menandatangani Ikrar tersebut?

PAS yang hampir tiada gejala rasuah pun tandatangan Ikrar Bebas Rasuah. Selangor yang disiasat pada tahun pertama berkuasa boleh tak nak tandatangan?

Adakah Iskandar membayangkan bahawa kerajaan negeri Kelantan yang diterajui rakan-rakannya dari PAS adalah kurang berakal berbanding beliau dalam usaha memerangi rasuah?  Kenapa beliau sebagai seorang ahli PAS tidak berkongsi sebarang maklumat mengenai cara menangani gejala rasuah oleh Selangor dengan PAS Kelantan?  Adakah sebab PAS Kelantan bukan sahabat beliau?  Bukankah sebagai seorang ahli PAS beliau sepatutnya bantu memperkukuhkan parti seperti yang dituntut oleh Fasal 16 (3) (e) Perlembagaan Parti Islam SeMalaysia?

Sesungguhnya saya tidak faham dengan Yin Shao Loong, Nurul Izzah dan Iskandar Abdul Samad yang memperlekehkan usaha SPRM membanteras gejala rasuah dan salahguna kuasa.  Iskandar Abdul Samad tidak berkongsi pengalaman Selangor membanteras rasuah; Nurul Izzah dan Shao Loong memperkecilkan usaha SPRM.

Sedangkan Ketua Umum Pakatan Harapan dan Presiden PKR pun sokong akan tindakan SPRM yang meletakkan kepentingan rakyat di atas kepentingan parti-parti politik.

Anwar dan Wan Azizah menyokong tindakan SPRM

Sepatutnya, sebagai sebuah negeri yang bangga dengan kaedahnya sendiri untuk menangani gejala rasuah, kerajaan negeri Selangor sepatutnya menyokong kuat usaha dan bantuan SPRM untuk menentukan bahawa Selangor benar-benar bebas dari budaya rasuah.

Rakyat tidak bodoh.  Rakyat memerhati.  Dan rakyat tahu segala usaha memperkecilkan usaha SPRM memerangi gejala rasuah dan salahguna kuasa bermakna there is SOMETHING FOR SELANGOR TO HIDE.

Where Is The Love?


Monkeys jump easily.  Especially pet monkeys. This includes the ones kept by the Tokong to pick coconuts and lice for him.

Today one such pet jumped when the MACC asked for the Pakatan and Opposition states to take an anti-corruption pledge.

In a opposition-leaning Malaysiakini report,   Saifuddin who is Tokong’s adviser on God-knows-what chastised the direction in which Dzulkifli Ahmad is leading the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), questioning if he was out to become a politician or celebrity.

What the country needs is a MACC chief who is effective and substantive, not a celebrity,” said Tokong’s pet. “People did not want public relation exercises in the form of pledges.”

Tokong’s pet was responding to MACC Chief Dzulkifli Ahmad’s push for Penang, Selangor and Kelantan to sign MACC’s anti-corruption pledge.

It also questioned that despite MACC’s apparent blitz against those involved in corruption, how many had actually been convicted.

We know he is as eager as we are to know the verdict of Tokong’s corruption case.

The Menteri Besar of Selangor Azmin Ali also brushed aside Dzulkifli’s push for the pledge to be signed.

Azmin said Selangor had its own way in dealing with integrity and corruption issues which is why Teoh Beng Hock had to be silenced and various reports on corruption against Azmin’s administration have been made by PKR.’s own members.

While Tokong’s pet was busy criticising the MACC’s effort to combat corruption, the MACC raided the FELDA Investment Corporation office and seized some documents to investigate alleged corruption activities involving the senior management of the GLC.


This morning, Parti Cinta Malaysia Deputy President Datuk Huan Cheng Guan lodged a police report against Tokong’s administration for irregularities pertaining to the awarding of a project to a very under-qualified company.

Going by the DAP’s Goat-of-God‘s post this morning, does Tokong think that the Pulau Pinang taxpayers’ money is his?


This is why the Pulau Pinang and Selangor state governments refuse to sign the MACC anti-corruption pledge. This is so that they could use taxpayers money like their own money.

And it was not so long ago that they were in all praises for the MACC when 1MDB was being investigated.


So, where is the love?

The Running Serial Convict

Today, His Majesty The Sultan of Selangor attended the Selangor Hari Raya Open House held at the MPAJ field in Pandan Indah.  In attendance was the Menteri Besar of Selangor, Azmin Ali.  The event invitation to the Selangor people was posted by Azmin on his Facebook page on 29 June 2017.  As with other states, Exco members, ADUNs and Members of Parliament are expected to attend.

The invite to the Selangor Hari Raya Open House that was posted by Azmin on 29 June 2017

His Majesty the Sultan attended the event together with Her Majesty The Tengku Permaisuri, and His Royal Highness The Raja Muda.

Azmin and wife together with HM The Sultan of Selangor, HM The Permaisuri as well as HRH The Raja Muda

Where were the Selangor Excos, ADUNs and MPs?

Let us for instance try and locate Sivarasa Rasiah who was chided by His Majesty The Sultan for giving a ceramah in a mosque was nowhere to be seen.  His last Twitter post was on the 18 June 2017.  Maybe he was away in another mosque somewhere in Sarawak, giving a ceramah judging by his Twitter display photo.

Missing In Action – Al Ustaz Sahibus Siamang, Sivarasa Rasiah

Another famous for nothing MP from Selangor is Pony Tua.  He too seems to be missing in action from the Selangor Open House, which is an event held for the Selangor people to celebrate Hari Raya together with His Majesty The Sultan of Selangor.

Not quite PONY TUA but a jackass all the same. And the teeth are definitely his

It seems that Pony Tua got all excited about another event held on the same day that has nothing to do with Selangor at all.  As a matter of fact, it has to do with Pulau Pinang.  Pony Tua was not promoting the event where HIS Sultan is attending, but was in fact promoting Tokong’s event!

Pony Tua promoting Tokong’s event

Although Pony Tua did not specifically mention anything about it being Tokong’s event, take note that it was held at 1Utama Shopping Complex.  There was another event, also held at the 1Utama on the same day as the Selangor Hari Raya Open House.

Tokong signed books at 1Utama

Wow! So, Tokong was in Petaling Jaya signing books instead of answering allegations made by the Barisan Nasional.  The fact that the book signing was held at 1Utama, it can be safely assumed that Pony Tua was also there to support Tokong’s event instead of attending the Sultan’s event.

Some may say that it is coincidental, but Tokong and his artist called Tomato were there to sign the comic books.  And guess who were there?

Steven Sim, the MP for Bukit Mertajam who is bad at Tai-Ji, takes a photo with Tomato, and was photobombed by….PONY TUA!

So, Pony Tua was supporting the event for the Tokong rather than attend the one with the Sultan.  After all, it is the DAP that is in control of the Selangor State Government, not PKR as believed, so why should Pony Tua care?

Let us now check on the Speaker of the Dewan Undangan Negeri Selangor, Hannah “Goat of God” Yeoh.  Since she is the Speaker of the Dewan, she should be at least promoting the Hari Raya event as did Azmin Ali on 29 June 2017.  Let us check her Facebook to see if that did happen.

Hannah Yeoh made no mention about the Hari Raya do on Facebook. Where was she?

Hannah likes to show those who voted for her events that she attended or promoted not just on Facebook but also on Twitter.  Let us now check her Twitter account.

On the same day Azmin Ali promoted the Hari Raya Open House do, Hannah promoted the I Heart Penang run event. Nothing on helping Azmin spread the invite to Selangorians to attend an event with their Sultan in attendance

Perhaps a Hari Raya event is unChristian for the Goat of God.  She wants to make sure that if Jesus had died on the cross for her, so should she.

So what was this I Heart Penang Run event?  Apparently Tokong can no longer con the Penang Lang so he needs to con the Selangor people as well.  So, this morning, he brought his Pulau Pinang people down to lead the Selangorians to run with him.  Not only that, these suckers were fleeced by the Robbing Hood called Tokong by RM25 per person!  Isn’t it odd asking Selangorians to pay RM25 to HEART Penang?  Why not organise only in Pulau Pinang?

Steven Sim above was not just in Petaling Jaya for the Tokong do at 1Utama, he also participated in the run…with another Selangor MP, Ong Kian Ming!  So, if all DAP MPs from Selangor was running for Tokong, who attended the Sultan’s event?

Ong Kian Ming, the Serdang MP was also at the I Heart Penang run

Truth be told, the DAP MPs and ADUNs of Selangor do not respect His Majesty The Sultan of Selangor.  To them, Tokong’s position is higher than the Sultan’s. Tokong is the CON-SULTAN.

Only Pulau Pinang’s Chief Minister is running. He is also running away from his battles

So, dear Steven, our Menteri Besar and other Chief Ministers do not feel the need to run.  They have not done anything wrong, have not been charged in court for corruption, and do not run away from questions and allegations like the Tokong does.  And I am still waiting for him to answer the questions and allegations made by the Barisan Nasional against him.

Until then, someone should keep the coffee warm for him.
