Maria China Abdullah, the Grand Ah-So of BERSIH, has spoken out against the silence of the country’s leaders on the recent political violence involving solely Parti Pemecah Belah Melayu (PPBM) members.
She said that this is the first time that Malaysia is experiencing such political violence because the country’s leadership refuses to say anything. She also added that the Inspector-General of Police and the Home Minister must take a drastic stand to stop political violence.
My guess is this somewhat non-halal Khadijah binti Khuwaylid wanna-be is the kind of mother who would blame the teachers at a PTA meeting for her children’s unruly behaviour and expects the teachers to bring her children up while she spends her time doing her nails and playing Candy Crush.
And I don’t know when, in recent times, did she get off the steamship from England (she was born in England in 1956) that she does not know the history of political violence in Malaysia. Maybe I ought to share with her some of my writings to show who has been advocating political violence and is now using others to do so for him.
Less than two years before the 13 May 1969 tragedy happened, a Hartal protest in Pulau Pinang ended up as a racial clash that saw 27 dead and 137 people injured.
Last weekend’s violence at the EVERYTHING TUN HIDE event organised by PPBM erupted when PPBM members themselves started throwing chairs at Wan Muhammad Ashraf Nasjamuddin, PPBM Shah Alam’s Logistics and Security Chief to prevent him from asking Mahathir any question. Prior to Wan Muhammad Ashraf, Taufik Abas who is a former PPBM AMANDA’s exco asked Mahathir about his involvement and thoughts on the Memali massacre that had occured during Mahathir’s premiership.
Wan Muhammad Ashraf said it was supposed to be his turn to ask a question after Taufik Abas, who had asked Tun about Memali. But before he got a chance to, a chair was flung towards him and landed right in front of him. Another steel chair was also thrown towards him from an upper floor by an organising committee member.
“The chairs were not aimed at Tun at all, as Tun was seated far away. I believe this was a tactic to prevent me from directing questions to Tun Dr Mahathir,” he told reporters.
You can see the video of the chair-throwing incident here and judge for yourself:
Remember how the PKR party elections in Selangor in 2014 ended?
And what about the PKR Kota Raja election? Was BN involved too?
But of course, Maria China Abdullah puts the onus on others to stop the violent acts. Since when is the police or the government responsible for stopping people from becoming violent? Are they untrained animals who cannot think for themselves that they need cattle prods to keep them in check?
Or would Maria China Abdullah like to return to the days of Mahathir where the police was given powers to make pre-emptive actions to stop violence and lock people away without any chance of a fair trial?
And see whose children are these who have been behaving in violent manner without any respect for the rule of law?
And if Maria China Abdullah would care to read the Peaceful Assembly Act, 2012, she would know that the responsibility to provide security and safety of gatherings lie on the organisers of the event, and not the police. Perhaps she would like the Federal Reserve Unit to be stationed inside the event hall and bludgeon the empty heads that are present whenever there is a hint of violence.
I don’t thin Maria China Abdullah is even fit to become a parent because she cannot control her own. She should just sit down at the Hou Keng Restaurant with PKR mongrel Tian Chua and have plates of Tomato Sauce Pork Chop Rice like the “Prophet’s Wife” her followers claim her to be.
So Maria China Abdullah, when are you going to ask the Opposition leaders to denounce political violence? Or do you still expect the police to wipe your arse after you crap?
Pada hari Selasa bersamaan 12 Februari 2013, sekumpulan 100 orang bersenjata yang diketuai oleh Haji Musa, orang kanan Mohammad Ismail A Kiram, anak keempat kepada Muhammad Fuad A Kiram, seorang yang mengangkat dirinya sendiri sebagai Sultan Sulu, telah mendarat di Kampung Tanduo, Tanjung Labian, di daerah Lahad Datu, Sabah.
Menurut laporan asal, mereka berkumpul di sebuah rumah milik Ahmad Malandi, yang juga dikenali sebagai ‘Mat Bom‘ bukan hanya kerana beliau sering menggunakan bom buatan sendiri untuk menangkap ikan, tetapi juga kerana pernah menyerang sebuah pejabat FELDA di FELDA Sahabat dalam tahun 1990an dengan menggunakan bom ikan gara-gara tidak berpuas hati dengan pertikaian tanah pusaka dengan FELDA.
Saya pernah menulis bagaimana kumpulan pertama yang terdiri dari lima orang yang memakai jubah diiringi 27 orang memakai separa-celoreng telah medarat terlebih dahulu, diikuti sekitar 70 orang kemudiannya. Kesemua mereka bersenjatakan M-14 dan AR-15.
Pasukan keselamatan telah mula bertindak dengan Polis DiRaja Malaysia menggerakkan dua kompeni dari Pasukan Gerakan Am, dan disokong oleh pegawai dan anggota Tentera Darat Malaysia dari 5 Briged Infantri. Rundingan dijalankan pihak PDRM untuk memujuk mereka meletakkan senjata dan menyerah diri kepada pihak polis. Malangnya, pada 1 Mac 2013 para pengganas Sulu ini bertindak bertempur dengan pasukan Komando 69 PDRM di Kampung Tanduo, diikuti dengan serang hendap terhadap pegawai dan anggota Cawangan Khas PDRM di Kampung Simunul di Semporna keesokan harinya. Pada 5 Mac 2013, peringkat ofensif oleh Angkatan Tentera Malaysia dan PDRM telah dilancarkan untuk menghapuskan para pengganas tersebut.
Sungguh malang nasib balu dan ibubapa 10 orang para pegawai dan anggota PDRM dan ATM yang terkorban di Lahad Datu mempertahankan kedaulatan negara. Pengorbanan anak mereka, suami mereka, bapa kepada anak-anak mereka, diperlekehkan oleh mereka yang tidak berhati perut, hanya kerana kepentingan politik sempit mereka.
Baru-baru ini dilangsungkan perbarisan penganugerahan “Battle Honour Daulat Februari 2013” di Kota Kinabalu. Selain untuk menganugerahkan unit-unit ATM yang terlibat dalam Op Daulat dengan “Battle Honour,” ianya juga adalah untuk memberitahu kepada rakyat Malaysia, terutamanya di Sabah, bahawa kerajaan tidak memandang ringan tugas mempertahankan kedaulatan negara, dan juga memperingatkan semua bahaya pencerobohan yang dilakukan sama ada untuk peperangan konvensional mahupun peperangan asimetri.
Lewat ini kita sering dapati sesetengah pihak yang tidak bertanggung jawab menyerang integriti serta moral pasukan keselamatan dengan menghina dan merendah-rendahkan kebolehan serta aset yang dimiliki pasukan keselamatan. Mungkin mereka merasakan bahawa di dalam mana-mana peperangan, mereka tidak akan merasa sebarang kesusahan.
Kita ketahui terdapat anggota ATM dan PDRM yang tercedera dalam pertempuran semasa Op Daulat dilangsungkan tetapi tidak ramai yang mengetahui mahupun dapat menilai pengorbanan yang dilakukan oleh pasukan keselamatan kita untuk mempertahankan kedaulatan. Ini bukannya cerita ‘Combat‘ mahupun ‘Rambo‘ di mana heronya akan mendapat luka-luka kecil tatkala bertempur, tetapi ada yang tidak sempurna anggota dan fungsi tubuh badan setelah terkena tembakan.
Berikut adalah di antara paparan yang mungkin tidak pernah dilihat oleh rakyat Malaysia sebelum ini, tetapi saya rasakan amat perlu ditunjuk supaya kita faham erti pengorbanan pasukan keselamatan kita.
Sekiranya anda merasakan hanya para anggota keselamatan kita yang merasa pahit maung pertempuran, anda tersilap. Realitinya amat berbeza sekali.
Apabila hospital medan didirikan oleh Kor Kesihatan DiRaja di kawasan operasi, orang awam yang terdiri dari para penduduk di situ yang telah tercedera ditembak secara rambang oleh pengganas Sulu berduyun-duyun datang untuk mendapatkan rawatan kecemasan. Di antara mereka termasuk kanak-kanak dan bayi yang menjadi mangsa keganasan pengganas Sulu. Mereka langsung tidak berperi kemanusiaan terhadap para penduduk timur Sabah sedangkan mereka kata Sabah adalah hak mereka.
Rentetan daripada insiden di Lahad Datu inilah kerajaan mewujudkan ESSCOM untuk memantapkan kawalan keselamatan di timur Sabah. Menteri Pertahanan Dato’ Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein berkata inisiatif terbaharu kerajaan ialah dengan menempatkan 7,000 anggota Tentera Darat dengan perlaksanaan Op Daratan, Op Balasah, Op Khas dan Op Pasir bagi mempertahankan daratan Sabah. Satu kompeni infantri Tentera Darat juga telah ditempatkan di kawasan Cenderawasih, Lahad Datu untuk memastikan kawasan pantai Lahad Datu terkawal sepenuhnya.
Tambah beliau lagi, inisiatif Trilateral Maritime Patrol (TMP) telah dilancarkan oleh Malaysia bagi memastikan mana-mana anggota militan termasuk Da’esh tidak menjadikan Laut Sulu sebagai laluan tikus untuk menceroboh masuk ke negara ini manakala inisiatif Trilateral Air Patrol (TAP) akan dilaksanakan dalam masa terdekat.
Jangan kita lupa siapa musuh kita. Jangan kita bersekongkol dengan mereka yang bersahabat dengan musuh yang tidak senang dengan kemerdekaan dan kesenangan yang kita kecapi. Jangan kita termakan hasutan politik kebencian (politics of hate) yang diamalkan oleh sesetengah pihak yang sanggup berbaik-baik dengan musuh untuk mendapat pengiktirafan mereka.
Jangan kita lupa pengorbanan pasukan keselamatan kita. Jangan jadikan pemergian mereka, dan juga pemergian para penduduk yang menjadi mangsa kekejaman pengganas Sulu sebagai pemergian yang sia-sia. Berikanlah sokongan tidak berbelah bahagi kepada pasukan keselamatan kita, terutamanya Angkatan Tentera Malaysia, kerana musuh tidak membeza-bezakan di antara tentera dan rakyat Malaysia.
Kurniawan bin Hendrikus (not his real name) who now lives in Kampung Gayaratau off the Ranau-Tamparuli road fears for the future if Pakatan wins Sabah.
“I worked in Semporna and Tawau in the 1990s and used to fear walking alone at night as these towns virtually belonged to ‘Malaysians’ from the Southern Philippines,” he recalled. “Now, the same man who treated Sabah like rubbish is heading the Opposition to try oust the Barisan Nasional.”
Sabah has been plagued by illegal immigrants for over three decades, causing socio-political and economic problems for the state. Although the numbers vary from thousands to millions depending on who you ask, all agree that the influx of immigrants especially from the Southern Philippines happened during Mahathir’s premiership, a move said to dilute the influence of the majority-Christian Kadazan-Dusun-Murut (KDM) communities.
Mahathir must be brought to account for “Projek IC”, the massive operation that flooded Sabah with illegal immigrants in exchange for Malaysian citizenship in the move dubbed ‘Project IC’ said Madius Tangau, the MP for Tuaran.
Madius who is also the President of the United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Organisation (Upko) added that the Sabahans want the PM then (Mahathir) who has admitted to giving out the fake ICs to be held responsible.
Mahathir blamed Anwar Ibrahim, who was his deputy at the time of the ‘Project IC’ taking place, for being directly involved in ‘Project IC’ and for acting without his (Mahathir’s) knowledge, the same blame game he uses in the Scorpene drama where he blamed Najib Razak, who was then the Defence Minister, for paying RM3.7 billion without the knowledge of the Minister of Finance, who also happened to be him (Mahathir).
A day after blaming Anwar, the latter returned the ball to Mahathir’s court saying it was Mahathir who was behind ‘Project IC.’ Anwar pointed out that there was even a taskforce set up by Mahathir to oversee the awarding of Malaysian citizenship to immigrants in Sabah.
Pakatan’s hint that Mahathir would be able to restore Sabah’s rights had Sabah’s Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) scoff at them for “daydreaming.”
Its President Teo Chee Kang reminded Pakatan that it was under Mahathir’s rule that the state suffered greatly, and lost some of its autonomy.
“I read in the papers that several Pakatan leaders from Sabah recently flew all the way to Kuala Lumpur to see Mahathir on Sabah rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963. I find it ironic. I would like to remind them that it was during Mahathir’s administration in 1983 that our state powers to regulate the distribution of gas and electricity were taken back by the federal government. In the 22 years of Mahathir’s rule we lost numerous state rights to the federal government,” he added.
Dr Jeffrey Kitingan who is Sabah’s STAR Chairman said it was Mahathir who introduced ‘Project IC’ and told him (Jeffrey) not to ‘teach’ the people what they didn’t know (Sabah rights).
‘Project IC’ was also called ‘Project M.’ ‘M’ is for ‘Mahathir.’
Sabah also lost a lot under Mahathir’s rule. In 1983, Mahathir made plans for Labuan to be handed over to the Federal Government. Labuan is an important hub for the oil and gas industry. In order to make oil revenues from Labuan totally the Federal government’s, Mahathir conceived the plan for Labuan to become a Federal Territory during a Barisan Nasional meeting in 1983.
Harris Salleh, who was the BERJAYA Chief Minister of Sabah then agreed to hand over the island over to the Federal government without any deliberation. No referendum was made for the proposal.
In August 1983, Tun Datu Mustapha who was USNO’s President made a call to Labuan’s USNO division to reject the proposal and demonstrate against it. In February 1984, Mahathir proposed for the expulsion of USNO from the Barisan Nasional. On 21 February 1984, the Labuan USNO division voted to dissolve itself in support of the handing over of Labuan to the Federal Government. On 27 February 1984, UMNO Supreme Council voted for the expulsion of USNO from the Barisan Nasional. The expulsion of USNO from the BN took effect on 15 April 1984, one day before Labuan became a Federal Territory.
“We are not giving away our territory because the Federal Government is in the position to develop the island,” Harris said in his defence.
As a result of his subservience to Mahathir, Federal allocation to Sabah increased tremendously during the years when BERJAYA was in power. Despite this, in 1986 the poverty level in the state remained at 33 percent, which was higher than the national average of 18.
The transfers to Sabah from the Federal government dropped in 1986 when PBS under Joseph Pairin Kitingan won the state.
It was during the Mahathir-Harris master-and-servant relationship that Sabah also almost lost its right to determine its own Immigration policy.
Pairin, in reminding Harris on why he was ousted in 1985 as Chief Minister, reiterated that it was under the latter’s Berjaya Government that the state’s rights were slowly eroded until very little was left.
“The Berjaya Government was on the verge of surrendering Sabah’s immigration powers before it was ousted from power,” said Pairin in a bombshell revelation.
Even Lim Kit Siang who is Mahathir’s now best-friend-forever wrote that Mahathir must explain the attempt to undermine Sabah’s rights to its own immigration policies.
He wrote: “As the then Prime Minister, Tun Mahathir – who is still very active and alert in the public domain, even plotting to scalp another Prime Minister – should throw light on another long-kept secret in Malaysia on the circumstances and history of attempts in his first four years as Prime Minister in the eighties to abolish Sabah’s state immigration powers as revealed by Joseph Pairin.”
This goes to show that other than Mahathir neither Lim Kit Siang nor Anwar Ibrahim or their respective parties (PRIBUMI, PKR, DAP) can be trusted to look after Sabah’s rights. But what about Shafie Apdal, once UMNO’s rising star from Sabah?
Shafie’s WARISAN, is seen by many in Sabah as being a proxy of Mahathir’s PRIBUMI. Many also question Shafie’s honesty in wanting to help Sabahans.
“People ask what he did to develop Sabah when he was in the federal Cabinet. Did he do anything to fight for Sabah autonomy? Even the other opposition leaders are asking these questions,” said Unimas don Dr Arnold Puyok to The Star.
Three village chiefs, Sosor Bin Aling from Kg Mempulut , Simon Sinsuran from Kg Dalit Stesen and Lidy Bin Lunggiri from Kg Pohon Batu said in the 1980s when Mahathir was in power, roads were never repaired and electricity did not reach them.
“Along the way, we were still using kerosene. Road conditions were extremely severe and there was hardly clean water to use. The primary schools were still as in the days of the British. However, the current Prime Minister had given them access to electricity and water supply is currently under installation, ” they said.
They said compared to the last 22 years with the last eight years, Najib Razak as the Prime Minister had helped them to get basic amenities like roads, schools and a clinic.
“We therefore fully support the government led by Najib. He is one of the best leaders compared to Mahathir. Logs were felled at the time of Mahathir and our area was also handed over to the major companies and we did not get any results,” they lamented.
Simon thanked Najib as he approved the construction of SMK Dalit which served about 30 villages.
After building SMK Dalit, their children no longer need to go to Keningau to study at secondary schools.
He hoped Najib would upgrade the clinic at the Dalit station.
Similarly, in Kabulu, they asked for a clinic for the good of the people in the area.
With also the toll-free Pan Borneo Highway which is already under construction set to improve communications and livelihood of Sabahans (as well as Sarawakians), it is only right for Sabahans to know that progress will only happen by having an administration that truly cares for its people and delivers promises.
Not the ones who use arm-bending solutions or those who now turn a blind eye on the said solutions just because they want to try ride on the dictator’s self-imagined ‘popularity.’
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.
Selamat kita menjalani ibadah puasa selama sebulan di dalam bulan Ramadhan di mana syaitan-syaitan diikat dengan rantai.
Tatkala anak bulan Syawal kelihatan, maka berakhirlah bulan Ramadhan semasa masuknya waktu Maghrib, dan dengan itu syaitan-syaitan dilepaskan dari ikatan.
Dan dari sebelum kewujudan Adam itu lagi, hamba Allah yang digelar Iblis telah memohon kebenaran daripada Allah ‘Azza Wa Jalla untuk menyesatkan manusia dan didatangkan dalam berbagai rupa kepada manusia.
Seorang bekas menteri yang merupakan budak suruhan parti DAP yang juga bekas ahli parti PKR dan presiden parti KITA telah mengkritik tindakan juruterbang pesawat Air Asia X yang meminta para penumpang mendoakan keselamatan mereka apabila enjin sebelah kiri pesawat tersebut mengalami kerosakan 90 minit setelah berlepas dari Perth, Australia.
Kata beliau, sekiranya Kapten pesawat tersebut mahu berdoa, eloklah Air Asia menggajikan seorang Imam.
Dalam reaksi balas terhadap kenyataan Zaid Ibrahim itu, Ahli Parlimen Pasir Mas Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz menyelar Zaid.
“Saya cuba mengagak bila Datuk Zaid Ibrahim berdoa kepada tuhannya? Bila saatnya?”
Pesawat Airbus A330 tersebut telah mengalami kerosakan enjin di sebelah kiri (Enjin No.1) yang bukan sahaja telah mengakibatkan gegaran teruk kepada rangka pesawat malah mengakibatkan pesawat tersebut tidak dapat mengekalkan paras ketinggian penerbangannya.
Gegaran ini berterusan walaupun setelah enjin dipadamkan akibat fenomena yang digelar ‘windmill effect‘ di mana udara yang melalui bilah kipas turbin enjin yang dimatikan menyebabkan putaran kipas berterusan (free-wheeling) yang menghasilkan gegaran.
Gegaran berterusan ini boleh juga menyebabkan enjin tersebut tertanggal dari sayap, atau mengoyakkan hos minyak (fuel lines) atau merosakkan sistem elektrik yang kritikal.
Kehilangan enjin melalui tertanggalnya enjin tersebut dari sayap boleh mengakibatkan malapetaka yang amat sukar dielak dan menyebabkan kehilangan kesemua nyawa krew dan penumpang pesawat tersebut.
Kerosakan enjin tersebut dipercayai telah diakibat oleh kegagalan struktur salah satu bilah kipas turbin enjin tersebut yang telah tertanggal dan kemudiannya memusnahkan sebuah pam minyak (oil pump) dan sistem hidraulik sebelum ‘ditelan’ oleh enjin tersebut dan menyebabkan lain-lain kerosakan.
Kerosakan seumpama ini dikategorikan sebagai satu insiden yang amat serius kerana hampir mengakibatkan kehilangan pesawat serta nyawa krew dan penumpang.
Maka, adalah berpatutan Kapten pesawat, selain meminta para penumpang mematuhi arahan anak-anak kapal, juga meminta agar mereka mendoakan keselamatan mereka semua.
Inilah yang dipersoalkan oleh Zaid kerana bagi diri beliau, ianya seolah-olah Kapten pesawat telah pasrah dan tidak lagi mahu ambik tindakan kecemasan, dan berserah kepada tuhan untuk menentukan nasib mereka pada ketika itu.
Mungkin Zaid lebih cenderung kepada menyuruh mereka berbuat apa jua yang dapat menghiburkan hati mereka termasuk mungkin juga meminum sebanyak mungkin minuman beralkohol yang mungkin dijual di dalam pesawat tersebut.
Sekurang-kurangnya mereka akan mati dalam keadaan gembira seperti mereka di dalam gambar berikut ini.
Sebab itu saya katakan, syaitan akan menjelma dalam berbagai rupa. Dan mereka bebas kembali menghasut anak Adam dengan berakhirnya Ramadhan.
There is nothing democratic about the DAP. They kill off opposition within the party every time someone breathes dissent.
PKR’s ADUN for Hutan Melintang, S Kesavan, went on a hunger strike to protest the Election Commission’s “failure” to address several concerns including the registration of fraudulent voters in his constituency in Perak.
He began his hunger strike at 11am on 22 June 2017 and was supposed to end it on 24 June 2017 at 11am.
Hardly 10 hours later he was rushed to the hospital, possibly after smelling mutton curry being cooked at one of the restaurants nearby.
At 9am he was already craving for tosai with mutton curry.
Muslims particularly in Northern Europe this year fast at least 16 hours a day for a month. Muslims in Malaysia including children that have reached puberty fast 13 hours a day. Here, you have a wimpy pathetic attention-deficient ADUN who can’t even last 10 hours.
As usual, quick to take advantage of the pathetic situation is the pathetic representative of the DAP, Nga Kor Ming.
Commenting on the incident Ah Ming aka Ming Yuen blames the Barisan Nasional government for S Kesavan’s ill-health.
He said the people must vote against the BN because of that.
I would rather people vote out stupid representatives. Those who voted in S Kesavan voted someone who is bloody lazy, did not do his work properly, and is now seeking attention to show that he is actually doing something when all he could have done was to obtain a ‘C’ Form from the Election Commission, fill in the names of those whom he think should not be voting in his constituency, and pay RM10 for each name he wants out.
Instead of doing so, he elected to go on a hunger strike when he knew it wouldn’t solve anything, get as much political mileage from it, and blame others for his stupidity.
Those who voted in Ming Yuen are equally at fault for voting in another moron. All he does is yap away on social media like some pig heavily infested with tapeworms.
So I tried engaging Ming Yuen on Twitter.
This is how he replied to me.
This is how democratic the DAP is. Always criticising others but will react adversely when criticised.
But this is all about leadership by example. He has an equally undemocratic teacher.
There are times when I wonder how neither Ramadhan and Syawal are no longer sacrosanct to the people from the Pakatan Harapan.
The latest blank shot was fired by Fahmi Fadzil claims that the Pakatan has nothing to do with the civil suit by the US Department of Justice.
There is a pattern here actually. The RM2.6 billion issue was first brought up by the Wall Street Journal on 2 July 2015, exactly 14 days before Hari Raya.
This was followed a year later by the first civil suit by the DoJ on 20 July 2016, again, 14 days after Hari Raya.
That the latest suit comes a week before Hari Raya is of no surprise to me. It is just timed for the Pakatan to have something to talk about while diverting the real issues of the abuses committed by their overlords in the DAP as well as the problems of the self-proclaimed champion of Pakatan, the PPBM.
The overlords in the DAP, a party that virtually submits to the wishes of the Emperor Lim Kit Siang and Tokong Lim Guan Eng has been facing questions from the Penang Barisan Nasional and esteemed blogger Miss Lim Sian See. All the questions have thus far gone unanswered. The self-proclaimed champion of Pakatan, PPBM, is facing an internal strife where the leadership cannot even answer questions posed by those in their own ranks, who were jumped upon by Mukhriz who slammed them for criticising the leadership. It was alright, however, for his father to criticise the leadership of UMNO TWICE that resulted in a trust deficit in the party, and the departure of one President.
I doubt that there is anything to worry about the latest DoJ suit. It still is a civil suit for the forfeiture of assets and is far from being a criminal suit. And while direct reference has been made towards Jho Low, most other characters mentioned in the suit are monikers (for lack of a better word) to refer to people who are NOT being investigated regarding the case.
But of course, people like Fahmi Fadzil insists that someone be brought to justice, and charged in a court of law in Malaysia. On what charge? What crime has taken place and where? Even the DoJ says it is a civil suit for something that happened within the American financial system. How do we even try an American case in Malaysia? So does Pakatan speak about all this with no knowledge or any hint of any comprehension of the legal system?
Now, let me repeat this. MO1 is called MO1 because MO1 is NOT being investigated. In the suit document I do not see any Najib Razak or MO1 or Rosmah Mansor being named as persons or institutions that might be affected by the suit.
Therefore, if MO1 is not affected by the investigation and suit, why is there a need to summon the Ambassador of the United States to Malaysia?
And yes, Singapore has fined, charged, jailed, banned some people and banks for money laundering of 1MDB money. Was that done by Malaysians or Malaysian officials?
And isn’t making statements like “And lest we forget, the aim of the civil forfeiture is to return the money stolen back to the Malaysian people” malicious? Perhaps Fahmi Fadzil can enlighten us which money of the rakyat’s that has been stolen? As far as audits performed by the government and renowned audit firms, all 1MDB money has been accounted for. And mind you, monies borrowed by 1MDB to make more money were not from the rakyat’s coffers. Unlike the bailouts of cronies by Pakatan’s Supreme-Leader-once-Enemy Mahathir, no public fund was ever used by the 1MDB to make money, save for the paid-up capital when setting up the company.
Also the following statement made by Fahmi Fadzil:
“It is clear that Malaysians demand the truth – about what really happened in 1MDB; about the billions of ringgit allegedly siphoned by certain individuals; about diamonds and other expensive things bought allegedly using billions stolen from the Malaysian people.“
Again, audits of the 1MDB has shown that no money is missing from 1MDB’s coffers. So how can there be billions of ringgit siphoned by any individual from the Malaysian people? Walk the talk, Fahmi. Show us the billions siphoned from the Malaysian people. Talk is cheap. Bullshit s cheaper.
Diamonds. Well, who has the diamonds? What was Fahmi Fadzil implying? That the wife of the MO1 received diamonds? There has been no proof whasoever that Rosmah received any diamond ring from Jho Low. If she did, is it wrong for a person to receive gifts? When you receive a present from your father, do you ask him where he got the money to buy that present from?
Jho Low did buy his mother diamonds though.
The only story about the wife of MO1 receving a diamond ring only came from one of the jokers in Pakatan. The most famous joker who lost four court cases for slander.
My only guess why Salleh Said Keruak wrote as such is that he, as I am, was angry that story about a civil suit by the DoJ that makes no mention of the MO1 being investigated, is being skewed by Fahmi Fadzil et al to make it look to the rakyat as if there has been a wrongdoing by the MO1 and the wife of the MO1. Only brainless monkeys would continue to believe the lies that have been dished out by the Pakatan.
And as for Fahmi Fadzil’s call for Jho Low to be tried in Malaysia, I hope he does have a brain. What has he stolen from Malaysia?
Eager to divert attention from the problems faced by Pakatan, Fahmi tries to look smart and suggest stupid things. Please continue with this stupidity, Fahmi. You are definitely doing BN a favour.
