Star Online - Give chocs to cops, urges Siti Kasim:

PETALING JAYA: The police force are rarely shown any appreciation, and lawyer Siti Kasim wants to put that right by giving them chocolates in conjunction with the fasting month of Ramadhan.

And she is calling all Malaysians to do the same this Saturday (May 26) from 4-5pm.

The “Jom Bagi Coklat Kat Abang & Akak Polis” event with the #chocs4cops tagline is trending on Facebook, with many giving their support to this event.

“I think it’s about time something is done. It’s just a gesture. We just want to show our appreciation for the work they have done. They have never been shown appreciation,” Siti told the Star Online.

Siti herself will give the chocolates to the Sentul police station in Kuala Lumpur as she stays there. She urges other Malaysians to give chocolates to the closest stations located to them and to post the pictures and videos on social media.

“I think that they are sometimes treated unfairly because of some bad apples but the majority of them are very nice people. I am kind of surprised that there is so much traction. I think a lot of people feel the same about how they are treated,” said Siti.

The idea of this event came from a complaint recently made against the police for eating in some fridge “somewhere”, she added.
This was in reference to the complaint made by ex Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak who alleged that some police personnel raided the fridge of his residence and ate chocolates while conducting raids in relation to the 1MDB case.

Wakakaka. Goodonya Siti sweetie.

And presumably we can take it that Najib has already given, wakakaka again.

Hatred is my middle name

Rohingya militants massacred Hindus in last year's turmoil: Amnesty

From the Sun Daily:

YANGON: Rohingya militants massacred Hindu villagers during last year's uprising in Myanmar's Rakhine, Amnesty International said Wednesday in a report that sheds fresh light on the complex ethnic rivalries in the state.

The killings took place on Aug 25, 2017, the report said, the same day that the Rohingya insurgents staged coordinated deadly raids on police posts that tipped the state into crisis.

Myanmar's military responded to the insurgent raids with harsh reprisals that forced some 700,000 Rohingya Muslims out of the mainly Buddhist country where they have faced persecution for years.

The UN says the army crackdown amounted to "ethnic cleansing" of the Rohingya, with soldiers and vigilante mobs accused of killing civilians and burning down villages.

But the Rohingya militants have also been accused of abuses.

Those include the mass killing of Hindus in the far north of Rakhine, where the military took reporters – including AFP – to witness the exhumation of putrid bodies from a grave in September.

The militants, known as the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), denied responsibility at the time.

But Amnesty International said Wednesday that a new investigation had confirmed the group killed 53 Hindus "execution-style" – mostly children – in the Kha Maung Seik village cluster in northern Maungdaw.

"Our latest investigation on the ground sheds much-needed light on the largely under-reported human rights abuses by ARSA during northern Rakhine state's unspeakably dark recent history," said Tirana Hassan, crisis response director at Amnesty International.

Victims rounded up

"Accountability for these atrocities is every bit as crucial as it is for the crimes against humanity carried out by Myanmar's security forces in northern Rakhine state," she added.

Citing interviews with eight survivors, the rights group said dozens were rounded up, blindfolded and marched out of town by masked men and Rohingya villagers in plain clothes.

"They slaughtered the men. We were told not to look at them ... They had knives. They also had some spades and iron rods," 18-year-old Raj Kumari told Amnesty.

He said he hid in the bush and watched as his father, brother and uncle were killed.

The report said that in a separate village nearby called Ye Bauk Kyar, 46 Hindu men, women and children disappeared on the same day. It cited information from local Hindus who believe they were killed by ARSA.

While Rakhine was home mainly to Buddhists and Muslims before the crisis, it also boasts a small but longstanding Hindu minority – many of whom were brought in by British colonisers looking for cheap labour – as well as several other smaller ethnic groups.

Myanmar has faced a flood of international condemnation for the its persecution of the Rohingya, who are stateless and have been targeted by bouts of communal violence.

The government denies any widespread abuses and has accused rights groups of a pro-Rohingya bias, while highlighting the suffering of other ethnic groups swept up in the violence.

"It is important that the international pressure on Myanmar won't favour ARSA's actions," government spokesman Zaw Htay told AFP when asked about the Amnesty report.

But David Mathieson, an independent analyst, said the report should strengthen the argument for Myanmar to allow independent investigations into the crisis.

Authorities have severely restricted media access to the conflict zone and barred UN investigators from entering the country.

"Failing to grant access to humanitarian aid workers and researchers and journalists will continue the official culture of denial, which has zero credibility in the eyes of the world," he told AFP. — AFP

6% GST replaced by 10% SST

FMT - SST will definitely be implemented this year, says finance ministry:

PUTRAJAYA: The sales and services tax (SST) will be rated at 10%, its previous rate, before the goods and services tax (GST) was implemented in 2015.

Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said efforts were being made to implement SST as quickly as possible.

GST will be zero-rated from June 1.

When asked how the ministry planned to recover revenue lost from the removal of GST, Lim said the ministry was looking at several options.

First, the ministry needed to have a full and accurate view of the nation’s actual financial position, Lim told a press conference at the finance ministry.

Malaysia obtained RM44 billion in revenue from GST last year. Pakatan Harapan scrapped the GST once it took power after the May 9 general election, in keeping with promises made in its election manifesto.

It has maintained that any shortfall in income from SST will be met by plugging leakages in government expenditure and reviewing mega projects.

In 2014, the year before GST was implemented, the country earned RM17 billion from SST.

A rating agency, Moody’s Investors Service, today said the move to remove GST will be “credit negative”, unless the new government takes steps to offset the loss in revenue.

“Assuming a stable share relative to GDP, and taking into account seasonal patterns, we estimate the revenue loss from the voiding of the GST at around 1.9% of GDP this year.

“We also estimate that if the SST, which yielded revenue of around 1.6% of GDP before the GST replaced it, takes effect in July, the revenue loss would narrow to 1.0% of GDP for this year,” said Moody’s.

While these losses can be mitigated by the higher oil price, this was not a permanent substitute for the GST, and was not a reliable offset to lost revenue given the volatility of prices.

I have often written that oil is a curse and we should not depend too much on it to jaga our economy. Don't spend it like money falls down from Heaven a la Moses' manna, but rather consider it as a bonus for our national savings to look after our elderly, veterans, the less fortunate and our children's future in the long term.

But I am glad the SST at 10% will replace the GST at 6%, wakakaka. 

Though not as sweeping as the GST the SST will hit those who didn't realise the fairer and more embracing GST. No one escapes GST thus no favouritism nor kowtim-ness. But SST will have loop-holes which Guan Eng will have to watch out for.

I have always advocate the GST as I live under the Oz GST and know its value and efficiency, but it's the Malaysian voters choice, the only one in the world where SST comes back to replace GST. Malaysia Boleh.

However, don't be surprised if the PH government will ratchet up the GST from its current 0-rated (yes, GST still exists) to some figure in the future, maybe in a couple of years time. So the GST lurks around, waiting to pounce on gullible guppies.

As for the much touted reviewing mega projects I hope we don't buy back Proton from Geeling, nor re-build the crooked bridge nor come up with some other pompous fanciful stuff.

It's a pity we didn't practise reviewing mega projects in a former (and current) PM's days on his extravaganza projects.

Too few women in cabinet

Aside from the PM and DPM, there are currently 12 ministers. If Pakatan Harapan's manifesto calls for at least 30% of women to be in the cabinet, shouldn't we see 4 (rounded up from 30% of 12 = 3.6)?

[a lil' aside, why is Maszlee the Education Minister when a better experienced man in the Education portfolio, Saifuddin Abdullah, is available? Besides, Saifuddin doesn't cosy up to Zakir Naik]

Currently we see only Zuraida Kamaruddin (PKR) and Rina Harun (Pribumi), though who in the world is the latter, I am not sure except she's from Pribumi (originally UMNO, wakakaka) and given quite an important portfolio, that of Rural Development. Is this how Pribumi dapat its ministerial and MB positions?

Some capable women would be (below list not exhaustive and confined to only PKR and DAP as I'm not familiar with Pribumi and Amanah):

(a) PKR - Nurul Izzah (3rd term as MP)

(b) PKR - Fuziah Salleh (2nd term MP, environment involvement) 

(c) DAP - Teresa Kok (5th term MP, Parliamentary Select Committee member, champions law reforms)

(d) DAP - Hannah Yeoh (2 term ADUN, DUN Speaker, MP)

(e) Teo Nie Ching (3rd term MP, involved in health services and water, and women's human rights)

(f) Alice Lau - Sarawakian (2nd term MP, involved in indigenous people's rights, poverty alleviation, rural development and education)

We need a minimum of two or better, more women in the cabinet. I propose:

Fuziah Salleh (PKR) - Minister of the Environment,


good to have a Sarawakian lady in cabinet 

Alice Lau (DAP) - Minister of Native, Aborigine & Minority Affairs


Teresa Kok - Minister of Law

MACC Chief a crybaby and tell-all?

Star Online - PAS lawyer slams MACC chief’s ‘tell-all’ press conference as prejudicial:

PETALING JAYA: A PAS lawyer has slammed Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull for giving a “tell-all” press conference regarding the 1MDB scandal.

Wan Zainuddin Wan Musa said the statement Shukri gave was prejudicial against Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, as it took place on the same day that the former prime minister was having his statement recorded by the MACC.

“The statement shouldn’t be released openly because it will bring about the perception that there was political interference in the case before this,” he said in a Facebook post on Tuesday (May 22).

Wan Zainuddin said that Shukri should have recorded his statement in the form of a statutory declaration or released it to the special taskforce set up to probe 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Berhad).

He also said that Shukri could have lodged a police report regarding the matter.

“In the police report, reveal the names of the individuals who were said to have threatened him. Let the police conduct investigations,” said Wan Zainuddin.

Earlier on Tuesday (May 22), Shukri claimed at a press conference that he and his officers were accused of conspiring to topple the then-Barisan Nasional government in 2016.

In July 2016, Shukri left for Washington to bring up the 1MDB issue with US authorities, following the removal of former Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail and the retirement of Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed as MACC chief.

However, Shukri said he was followed by someone during his trip to the United States.

Fearing for his life, Shukri met up with a friend who worked in the New York Police Department (NYPD), where he was given three bodyguards for protection.

Shukri even broke down when he recalled running away to the USA from Malaysian authorities. Surely that should be enough teardrops for public sympathy. Kesian. 

Looks like the demon-isation of Najib continues, coupled with Shukri's earlier very public threat to charge Najib under the MACC Act, 2009 if the former PM did not turned up at the agency's headquarters in Putrajaya today (Tuesday 22 May).

Was there really such a crude necessity to threaten a former PM, on top of the highly publicised police midnight raids and the cornucopia of handbags at Najib's house in the police 'show & tell'?

If Enemy Eat Poo , You Wanna eat Poo?

The Malaysian Bar has slammed unauthorised travel bans on police investigation targets (eg. Najib) and leaks of police investigations, calling them ‘breaches of law’.

Bar president George Varughese expressed the Bar’s concern regarding reports of such unauthorised travel bans imposed on certain personalities, and deplored the leaks of pictures, videos and details of ongoing probes.

Varughese stressed that all individuals were entitled to the protection of their constitutional rights, regardless of public sentiment against high-profile members of the previous government. He stated:

“The previous government may have had a less-than-sterling — even tarnished — record of respecting the rights of individuals."
“But this should in no way justify a “tit-for-tat” approach of denying these high-profile members the right to have their own constitutional rights upheld”.

Varughese reminded me of what my mum used to tell me when I was caught being naughty but pleaded that I was merely doing what the pother kampung kids do: "Kaytee, if they eat sh*t, do you also want to eat sh*t?" Wakakaka. 

Thus when I hear anyone, even sweeties I adore, say they (you-know-who, wakakaka) "deserve it" because they were cruel, I would think of my mum's sarcastic advice.

Wakakaka again, and thanks, Mr Varughese.

BEST political statement 2018 (16)

A lil' while ago I penned Selangor continues to be without a MB, for a few MORE weeks in which I said: I am NOT sure what Azmin Ali is up to, but you may be sure he's up to something, wakakaka.

just a few more things to tidy up


But how the fCk can Selangor be without a MB for a FEW MORE WEEKS?

Is Azmin Ali so indispensable? And really, can HRH maintain the government of Selangor in such a headless-chook situation?

Whatever, I am more interested in a comment made by one of my visitors, TS.

I am going to award his comment as the latest BEST political statement, to wit:

"Sabah could loan Selangor one MB. They have two."


Goodonya, TS.

above two are hopeless, besides I'm more "hensom" 


Selangor continues to be without a MB, for a few MORE weeks

Malaysiakini - New S'gor MB will be appointed in few weeks, says Azmin (extracts):

now, let me see ... hmmm ... 

A new menteri besar will be appointed in a few weeks, said Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali today.

"The palace had issued a statement yesterday morning and I clarified this matter where His Majesty (Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah) had consented that I take up the federal post.

"And at the same time, we will discuss with His Majesty on the potential candidates," he told reporters after clocking-in at his Economic Affairs Ministry.

"As soon as the palace identifies the name and gives the consent, (the new menteri besar) will be appointed," Azmin said.

This process will take a few weeks, he added.

In the paraphrased words of Mahathir, the state of Selangor will be WITHOUT a MB.

And we are NOT talking about a few 'days' delay. We are talking about a few 'WEEKS'.
I am NOT sure what Azmin Ali is up to, but you may be sure he's up to something.

Though it's true that constitutionally, HRH's approval is required for the appointment of a new MB, obviously HRH cannot give His approval unless Pakatan Harapan forwards a name or two to HRH. It's not for Azmin alone to decide but rather PH.

Assuming what Azmin has told us is correct, that HRH wants to decide on his preferred candidate, what if HRH can't decide and (hypothetically) mulls over the matter until 2023?


Did ghost of Balasubramnaiam tell Clare Rewcastle-Brown?

MM Online - Rewcastle-Brown: Murdered DPP Kevin Morais was my informant (extracts):

PETALING JAYA, May 21 — Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle Brown asserted that murdered Senior Deputy Public Prosecutor, Kevin Morais, was the man who leaked the information about the Attorney-General Chamber’s (AGC) investigation over misappropriation at former 1MDB subsidiary SRC International.

Rewcastle-Brown told Malay Mail in an interview that “a few reliable sources” told her it was Morais who fed her the information about the investigation and leaked what was allegedly a charge sheet against former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

“I was contacted directly by that person (who prepared the charge sheet)..I think it was Kevin Morais,” the London-based Sarawak Report editor said when asked how she had acquired the highly confidential information.

“I have enough people who I’m not going to quote, reliable sources who told me it was Kevin Morais,” she added. [...]

Rewcastle-Brown said she obviously doubted the official explanation to the DPP’s murder, saying the narrative that gangsters had killed Morais out of vengeance was almost a standard script to mask a more sinister motive.

She said the Malaysian authorities should launch a fresh and ”deeper” investigation.

“My biggest emotion was such sadness and concern..I think we know who has been arrested and who has been tried but I think there should be a deeper (investigation),” she told Malay Mail.

“I think it’s often a very big problem in Malaysia where street gangsters are picked up and charged with crimes without (knowing) their motives.”

Note her:

... “a few reliable sources”  told her it was Morais who fed her the information about the investigation and leaked what was allegedly a charge sheet against former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak ...

“I was contacted directly by that person (who prepared the charge sheet)..I think it was Kevin Morais,”

“I have enough people who I’m not going to quote, reliable sources who told me it was Kevin Morais,” 

Familiar with such story-telling that "I was told by he who was told by her who was told by them who were told by ... enough people who I'm NOT  going to quote, reliable sources who told me it was Kevin Morais”?

Yes, it's exactly like the late private investigator P Balasubramaniam's SD, which if you remember, informed us he was informed by Razak Baginda who in turn was informed by Najib Razak who in turn was informed by Altantuyaa Shariibuu who in turn confessed she liked ‘getting it’ in her behind.

did/do you mongrels know I was in the Fogles Pub and The Back Yard pub hatching up my SD before I released same to the press two months later, with Anwar Ibrahim's "help" (wakakaka)

The gentleman below can confirm, wakakaka again

YB Sivarasa Rasiah

YB please confirm above was true since you were there at the very beginning until poor Bala passed away

also read The missing man in the Altantuyaa story. [posted 25 Feb 2013]

Be that as it may (Clare Rewcastle's pathetic attempts to link the late (murdered) Kevin Morais to 1MDB and preposterously as her (she has the brazen nerve to believe so) informant, was demolished kaukau by the new MACC chief who said:

The news article tells us:

PETALING JAYA, May 22 ― Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Kevin Morais’s death has no connection to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) probe, Malaysian Anti-CorruptionCommission (MACC) Chief Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull said today.

This follows claims by Pascal Najadi, son of the slain AmBank Chairman Hussain Najadi who urged the government to reopen the investigation into unanswered murder cases such Altantuya Shaariibuu and Morais, which could shed light on the motive of the assassination of his father.

Kevin Morais (death) has nothing to do with the case because he was the prosecutor on the army colonel falsifying claims case,” Shukri said at a press conference at MACC headquarters at Putrajaya today.

WTF does that tell you about Clare Rewcastle-Brown, who could even claim Kevin Morais (or his disturbed soul) contacted her directly.

Reminder: She had said “I was contacted directly by that person (who prepared the charge sheet)..I think it was Kevin Morais,”

Just because Mahathir is now the PM does NOT mean she is allowed unfettered liberty to demon-ise her target or enhance her "story".

On second thought, maybe it was not the disturbed soul of Kevin Morais but rather that of P Balasubramaniam who told her what to say.

New cabinet with better policies and cheaper goods

MM Online - Analysts: Challenges await new line-up of Cabinet ministers (extracts):

Political analyst Azmi Hassan said although the Cabinet ministers were inexperienced, the real challenge lay in being led by a leader who possessed vast administrative experience and assistedby government officials who were also experienced.

Although this situation would take a while to adjust to, he said the main challenge faced was in carrying out their responsibilities with the presence of a Government Advisory Council while fulfilling the needs of the PH Presidential Council.

“I expect the new ministers to face problems in adapting with the presence of these two councils that are rather influential in shaping the country’s policies,” he told Bernama after the swearing-in ceremony today.

The Government Advisory Council was formed to advise the government on current economics and finances, while the PH Presidential Council which comprised the top leaders of PH’s component parties who made decisions on matters in consensus.

Azmi, who is also a lecturer at a public university, said another challenge faced would be in the revocation of old government policies as they (new Cabinet ministers) needed to replace the policies with better ones.

Meanwhile, political analyst Assoc Prof Dr Ahmad Martadha Mohamad who is also a Universiti Utara Malaysia Law, Government and International Studies lecturer was of the view that the actual challenge of the Cabinet line-up was in fulfilling the promises made when they were the opposition party.

He said, previously, most of them were rather vocal and rather critical towards the former government when voicing out their views in improving the government policies for the welfare of the people.

The CEP (Council of Eminent Persons) will sort out most of their worries, with the PM looking after the rest.

An example is the GST being zero-rated (not rid off, mind you, wakakaka) so expect all goodies to be at least 6% cheaper - well, at least kembong, kerang, kangkong to be cheaper.

So no worry lah.

the mysterious anaemic Siti Zahara will now be able to enjoy a full kilo of kerang which previously with GST went up from RM4 to RM10

HM Sultan Johor - Anwar Ibrahim tête-à-tête

MM Online - Anwar flown to Johor tonight on Sultan’s private jet (extracts):

KUALA LUMPUR, May 21 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is currently in Johor where he will be meeting Sultan Ibrahim Iskandar, just days after receiving a royal pardon and being released from prison.

Malay Mail understands that Anwar just arrived moments ago at the Senai International Airporton the Johor ruler’s private jet. [...]

It is unclear as to the purpose of the meeting, but Anwar has stated he will be travelling for a fair bit before actively taking part in politics again.

Anwar has said he did not have a time frame for when he should become prime minister, but expressed his eagerness to return to Parliament swiftly.

In an exclusive interview with Malay Mail last week, Anwar said that while he will allow Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as much time as the latter needed to carry out Pakatan Harapan’s reform pledges, he was keen to resume active politics.

Interesting, isn't it - I mean, Anwar and Princess (not Iron Fan) being bestowed the royal honour of flying in HM's private jet which I believe is the latest B737 Business jet (configured to more luxurious setting). Wow and Zoom.

Being a kay-poh I wonder what could have been dibual? I sure love to kay-poh-ishly access the tête-à-tête or to be more proper, royal conversation.

But alas, it's obviously confidential and I must behave.

Freedom of speech & expression?

Malaysiakini - Maszlee: I support freedom of speech but not Zakir's 'extremism' (extracts):

Education minister-designate Maszlee Malik has clarified that his support for controversial Muslim preacher Zakir Naik extends as far as for the latter’s freedom of speech, but not for his alleged preaching of hatred.
Ever since the Simpang Renggam MP was announced for the ministerial post last Friday, criticism against his apparent support for Zakir has surfaced.

In response, Maszlee explained that his support was based on his commitment to the principle of freedom of speech, but that he did not condone any incitement of hatred, as Zakir has been accused of doing.

“I respect freedom of speech, just like I respect freedom of expression,” he told Malaysiakini in an exclusive interview last night.

That's fine but what about freedom of speech and freedom of expression for Shiites, Qadiani, atheists (wakakaka), LGBT, Jews (Judaists), Ismailis, Ibadis, etc?

Mahathir & CJ Raus - What was discussed?

Star Online - Separation of powers: Dr M should not have had one-on-one with CJ, says lawyer (extracts):

PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should not have had a one-on-one meeting with Chief Justice Tun Md Raus Sharif, says senior lawyer Roger Tan.

“This should not have happened if we respect the doctrine of the separation of powers strictly,” said Tan in a post on his Facebook page on Monday (May 21).

He said that Md Raus should have declined the invitation to the meeting that took place last Tuesday.

Kay-poh's would sure like to know what they discussed?

I'm sure we are all bursting with curiosity.

Fair trial for Najib?

MM Online - Fair, independent investigation for Najib, says Anwar (extracts):

JAKARTA, May 20 — Pakatan Harapan (PH) de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim says investigations on Datuk Seri Najib Razak over the SRC International Sdn Bhd case will be conducted in a fair and independent manner.

He called on all parties not to pass judgement on the former prime minister before a thorough investigation and enforcement of the law were fully complied with.

“To him (Najib), (this is) my advice, find a good defence counsel,” he said after a meeting with former Indonesian president, Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie, in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of Indonesia’s reform here today.

Very ominous.

I doubt fairness can exist when there prevails a need for 'ch'oot k'ee' by quite a number of 'parties'.

'Ch'oot k'ee' is a Penang Hokkien word which means 'to vent one's fury', wakakaka.

Najib is in deep shit because of this toxic atmospheric emotion. I personally doubt there will be fairness in his trial as unwitting consequence of such emotions against him will predominate. For example, Anwar was reported bas saying:

Najib Razak abused the country’s legal system to imprison him a second time for sodomy.

Speaking to The Observer, the sister paper to UK’s The Guardian, Anwar also said he would not have been jailed if the 13th general election was free and fair as it would have been won by the now defunct Pakatan Rakyat.

The PKR de facto leader told the newspaper that he had, for a time, been frustrated by Malaysia’s institutions, before coming to terms with its frailties and abusers.

That's a heap lot of resentment. And then the Edge Market reported:

Mahathir ruled Malaysia with a notoriously iron first from 1981 to 2003, but now gives off the air of a world-weary academic who is allowing himself to be martyred for his cause.

This election is personal. I feel betrayed by him, I can’t help it. Najib cannot separate personal things from political workings,” he says, describing in a tone of great injury how Najib has banned anyone in government from being in contact with him, even those Mahathir has known for years.

Piles and piles of resentment.

He'll be most lucky to be given a couple of years' jail and send off into exile.

But I am waiting for the MACC's pronouncement tomorrow following Kadir Jasin's 'predictions'.
