‘Over 60,000 dubious voters in Sabah’

Anisah Shukry | March 19, 2013
DAP also finds 29 instances of old IC duplications in the electoral roll.
KUALA LUMPUR: The Sabah electoral roll has 60,673 or 6.3% potentially dubious voters, the DAP said today.
Ong Kian Ming, director of the party’s Malaysian Electoral Roll Analysis Project (Merap), said they arrived at this figure from the proceedings of the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) probing the issuance of identity cards (IC) to illegal immigrants in Sabah.
“Ruslan Alias, an assistant head in the IC division of Sabah/Sarawak in the National Registration Department [NRD], revealed a list containing 130,459 ‘problematic’ old IC numbers where their records with the NRD were either incomplete or where these cards had been cancelled,” Ong told a press conference at the party’s headquarters here.
He said Merap did a search of the old IC numbers using the first quarter of the 2012 electoral roll and found that 60,673 of those problematic ICs were on the roll.
“These voters are not evenly distributed across the state. Eight out of the top 10 parliamentary constituencies featuring these voters can be found on the east coast of Sabah. Some 66% or 39,750 voters out of the 60,673 problematic ICs can be found in these eight parliamentary seats,” said Ong.
The top eight seats are Silam (7,934 dubious voters), Kalabakan (7,536), Semporna (4,742), Libaran (3,949), Batu Sapi (3,442), Sandakan (2,603), and Kinabatangan (2,068), according to Merap.
Ong conceded that the current electoral roll may not reflect similar figures, but he said it was unlikely the Election Commission (EC) would be able to remove over 60,000 voters from the roll within a span of four months.
“Far from seeing a decrease in voters in Sabah’s electoral roll in the past few months, we have actually seen a surge of voters,” he said.
He also said Merap found 29 instances of old IC duplications from the list of problematic ICs.
“These voters are still on the electoral roll at the time of writing,” said Ong.
Serious issue
Meanwhile, Ong questioned why 20 IC numbers listed as having been cancelled in 1996 were only removed from the electoral roll in the fourth quarter of 2012.
“How did these voters manage to stay on the electoral roll up until the fourth quarter of 2012?
“Who was responsible for registering these voters with cancelled ICs? According to the data collected previously by Merap, all these voters were registered after 1996, when these ICs were supposed to be cancelled,” he added.
When asked whether he had met with the EC to discuss the discrepancies, Ong said he would wait until Merap gathered more data.
“We actually did contact the EC about the incongruity in the RCI, but they said we should wait until it is over,” he said.
“We hope the EC and the NRD can conduct a comprehensive and immediate investigation to see how many voters need to be removed. This is a serious issue, even as elections are going to be held soon,” said Ong.
He said if the EC failed to act on this, it meant it was allowing the 13th general election to go on with a “seriously compromised” electoral roll.
“This would affect the legitimacy of the election results, especially in the areas with the largest number of people with problematic ICs who are registered as voters,” said Ong.
Meanwhile, Sabah DAP state chairman Jimmy Wong urged all Sabahans working overseas or in the peninsula to return to the state for the general election.
“We want all Sabahans to realise the possibility of a takeover because of the high number of immigrants,” he said.
Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng added that the government should disclose the list of problematic ICs in all states so that the EC could pinpoint the dubious voters in the nation’s electoral roll.

As the Altantuya Murder Plot Thickens

By Kee Thuan Chye
Private investigator P. Balasubramaniam is gone, and his untimely death from a heart attack makes it all the more pressing for Malaysians to find answers to the mystery of the murder of the Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Who actually did it? Logically, it would seem unlikely that the two police personnel who have been convicted acted on their own. What would be the motive of Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar and Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri? They didn’t even know Altantuya before they whisked her away and dealt the fatal blow. It would seem they were merely hitmen.
Furthermore, according to Sirul’s cautioned statement, they were offered RM50,000 to RM100,000 to dispose of Altantuya. If this is true, who made the offer?
Other questions float in limbo like ghosts whose souls have not been put to rest. How did these two men get their hands on the C4 explosive used to blow Altantuya’s body to smithereens? It’s something that is difficult to procure. Did they have help from certain quarters?
Bala had said that he wanted to reveal what he knew about matters related to the murder in order to bring justice to Altantuya and the two convicted men. But now he is unable to testify in court.
He did, however, manage to come home from exile to publicly announce that he stood by his first statutory declaration (SD) in which he implicated Prime Minister Najib Razak – if only in the sense that the latter knew Altantuya and had had a sexual relationship with her, and that he might have influenced the attorney-general on the handling of the murder trial.
This first SD also stated that although Bala gave a statement to the police that included Najib’s alleged relationship with Altantuya, what he was given to sign omitted this detail. And when he gave testimony at the murder trial, the lawyers never asked him about that relationship either.
So seemingly damning was this first SD that the very next day, Bala took everyone by surprise when he came out with a second SD that not only retracted the entire contents of the first but also specifically named as being untrue all the parts that referred to Najib.
Since then, businessman Deepak Jaikishan has come out to divulge that he was involved in getting Bala to make the second SD, together with Najib’s brother, Nazim. He said he did this at the request of Najib’s wife, Rosmah Mansor, and that Najib arranged for a senior lawyer to prepare the second SD. He said he regretted getting involved: “It was the biggest mistake I have made.”
Does this vindicate Bala? Well, it depends on whether Deepak is telling the truth. Najib has said Deepak is “not credible” and dismissed what he has revealed as “not an issue”, even though it reinforces Bala’s statement that Najib allegedly knew Altantuya.
And now to further consolidate Deepak’s allegations about the second SD, Bala’s lawyer, Americk Singh, has disclosed to the Bar Council that the senior lawyer who Deepak said prepared it is Cecil Abraham.
Americk said Cecil disclosed this to him in confidence, and – even more interesting – that Cecil said he was acting on instructions from Najib.
Americk apologised to Cecil for breaking his promise of confidence, but felt he had to make it for the sake of carrying on Bala’s quest for justice. To many, Americk did the right thing.
The obvious next step now is for the relevant authorities to query Cecil to verify if this is true. Of course, it could still be one man’s word against the other’s. If Cecil did prepare the second SD knowing that it would contradict Bala’s true intent, he would be guilty of professional misconduct. But if he denies it, and assuming that he believes Bala’s first SD to be true, he would be maligning the word of a man who has just died.
It will be a tough call for Cecil. And even if he were to admit that it was Najib who gave him the instructions, it still may not prove anything unless he has black-and-white evidence of those instructions, or someone else was present to corroborate the fact.
In view of all the allegations that have come about and the keenness of Malaysians to get to the bottom of the murder mystery, perhaps it’s time for everyone concerned to do the right thing. Including Najib.
Some of the pieces seem to fit, and although the picture that emerges may be hazy and inconclusive, his face keeps popping up because of certain circumstances. For example, the two men who have been convicted were at the time of the murder serving as bodyguards to then prime minister Abdullah Badawi and also to Najib. And DSP Musa Safri, who is said to have been a potentially important witness but never called to the stand, was Najib’s aide-de-camp then.
At some point, Najib must surely have to come out and categorically debunk the allegations. Saying that Deepak lacks credibility is not enough to convince the people. And although Najib has sworn on the Quran that he has never met Altantuya, this may not satisfy logical minds.
The impression one gets is that Najib prefers to ignore the issue so that it won’t get any bigger, and that he hopes people will in time forget. But the issue is not getting smaller, and people have not forgotten after seven years.
As such, Najib is being confronted with a big dilemma. As the plot of the Altantuya mystery continues to thicken and he continues to distance himself from it, he could be leading the ruling party into the upcoming general election with an albatross around his neck.

Hassnar: Kad Pengenalan Sabah ‘projek Mahathir’ – HarakahDaily

20130318_214000
KUALA LUMPUR: Bekas Ketua Daerah Sandakan, Hassnar Ebrahim secara tegas mendakwa bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad sebagai dalang projek kad pengenalan (IC) Sabah.
Beliau berkata, Timbalan Menteri Dalam Negeri ketika itu, Megat Junid Megat Ayob sendiri mengakui Tun Mahathir meluluskan projek tersebut dengan alasan untuk ‘mengimbangi penduduk perbezaan bangsa dan agama di Sabah.
Akibatnya kata Hassnar, seramai 130,000 pendatang tanpa izin diberikan kad pengenalan pada tahun 1985.
Bercakap pada Forum Mahkamah Rakyat: Kisah dari Lahad Datu, Siapa Pengkhianat Sebenar? di Dewan Perhimpunan Cina Kuala Lumpur Selangor (KLSCAH) malam tadi, Hassnar juga berkata, beliau terlibat dalam menandatangani dokumen untuk pemberian IC kepada pendatang asing tanpa disedari.
“Walaupun saya sudah berusia 62 tahun, tapi saya masih kuat, segak dan saya belum nyanyuk. Megat Junid sendiri beritahu saya projek IC diluluskan oleh Mahathir.
“Memang berlaku pertemuan di antara Megat Junid dan bekas Ketua Menteri Sabah, Harris Salleh ketika itu.
“Saya ulang, kalau polis dengar apa yang saya katakan ini, sila rakam. Gunung berapi dalam dada saya sudah mahu meletup. Kalau polis mahu dakwa saya silakan. Kita jumpa di mahkamah,” katanya kepada kira-kira 5,000 hadirin.
Hassnar yang merupakan bekas seorang tahanan Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA) pada tahun 1998 juga berkata, IC tersebut bertujuan untuk menumbangkan Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) yang belum menyertai BN ketika itu.
“Pada tahun 1988, PBS sedar perkara ini berlaku dan syarat yang dikenakan saya mesti dipenjarakan.
“Jadi saya ditahan di bawah ISA selama 59 hari. Walaupun saya buat kerja buat kerja untuk Umno ketika itu, saya tetap ditahan. Jadi berkawan dengan orang Umno kerana walaupun anda buat kerja untuk mereka, anda tak terkecuali daripada diambil tindakan,” katanya.
Beliau juga mendakwa, usaha yang dikenali sebagai ‘Projek Mahathir’ yang didalangi Umno itu turut melibatkan kerjasama beberapa agensi kerajaan, termasuk Jabatan Pendaftar Negara (JPN) dan ketua-ketua kampung.
Selain itu, beliau turut mendakwa rusuhan tersebunyi yang berlaku pada tahun 1986 di Sabah merupakan perancangan Tun Mahathir selepas kekalahan BN.
Rusuhan selama 48 hari itu mengakibatkan letupan bom, pembakaran masjid dan menyebabkan lima terbunuh.

‘Najib tidak berani siasat pencerobohan Sabah’

K Pragalath | March 19, 2013
Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim turut menuduh Peguam Negara dan Pesuruhjaya Polis Sabah sebagai bersandiwara dalam usaha mengekstradisi ketua kumpulan pengganas Sulu.
PETALING JAYA: Bekas Ketua Bahagian Siasatan Jenayah Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim hari ini mendakwa  Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak tidak berani menubuhkan Suruhanjaya Siasatan Diraja (RCI) untuk menyiasat kes pencerobohan Lahad Datu di Sabah  kerana kepentingan politik dan kroni.
“Kuasa ada di tangan Perdana Menteri dan beliau sepatutnya boleh mengisytiharkan pembentukan RCI itu serta merta, jika kerajaan yakin yang tidak ada isu yang ingin disembunyikan atau dipolitikkan.
“Selain daripada menumpukan minat untuk menyiasat dalang disebalik pencerobohan tersebut,kerajaan juga wajar mengenalpasti kesilapan, kecuaian dan campurtangan pemimpin politik yang dipercayai telah menyumbang kepada tragedi berdarah pertama di-Kampung Tanduo dan disusuli di-Semporna ketika diperingkat Ops Sulu.
“Setelah melebehi 70 orang dilaporkan terkorban bagi kedua-dua pihak pasukan keselamatan dan penceroboh, Najib nampaknya masih lagi teragak-agak dan tidak mempunyai keyakinan diri untuk membentuk RCI tersebut.
“Beliau seolah lebih mementingkan kedudukkan politik beliau dan kroni-kroni beliau sahaja, daripada mencari punca dan kecuaian, bagaimana sebegitu ramai anggota keselamatan kita khasnya dari Pasukan Polis, bukan sahaja terkorban malahan ditawan,diseksa dengan kejam sebelum dibunuh,” kata Mat Zain dalam sepucuk surat terbuka kepada Ketua Polis Negara. Tan Sri Ismail Omar.
Bersandiwara
Mat Zain turut menuduh Peguam Negara Tan Sri  Abdul Gani Patail dan Pesuruhjaya Polis Sabah Datuk Hamza Taib sebagai bersandiwara dalam usaha mengekstradisi ketua kumpulan pengganas Sulu, Azzimudie atau Abgimuddin kerana Malaysia tidak pernah menandatangani perjanjian ekstradisi dengan Filipina.
“Mereka berdua tidak menerangkan perkara sebenar kepada rakyat, bahawa proses mengekstradisi Jamalul dan Azzimudie Kiram itu, bukan sahaja memerlukan kerjasama erat pihak berkuasa Filipina, malahan memerlukan kelulusan daripada Manila,” jelas Mat Zain.
Tambahan pula Mat Zain turut menyoal peranan Patail dan Hamza untuk mengelakkan Manuel Amalilio ditahan oleh pihak berkuasa Filipina kerana menipu 15,000 rakyat Filipina dalam skim cepat kaya berjumlah RM900 juta.
“Sekiranya Hamza dan Gani Patail mempunyai peranan dan terlibat secara langsung dalam “merampas”
Manuel Amalilio daripada tangan pihak berkuasa Filipina, beberapa minit sebelum penjenayah yang sangat mereka kehendaki itu, menaiki pesawat ke Manila di Lapangan Terbang Kota Kinabalu pada 26 Januari lalu maka apakah kerjasama yang Gani Patail dan Hamza Taib boleh harapkan dari Manila, untuk mengekstradisi Jamalul dan Azzimudie pula?
Setiausaha Dalam Negeri Filipina,Mr.Mar Roxas telah dilaporkan sebagai menuduh Ketua Menteri Sabah,  Datuk Seri Musa Aman campur tangan dalam menghalang saudara bau bacangnya, Manuel Amalilio daripada dibawa balik ke Filipina pada saat-saat akhir.
Mat Zain membuat spekulasi bahawa keengganan Malaysia untuk menghantar Manuel ialah antara sebab yang akan menyebabkan usaha ekstradisi kumpulan Sulu akan gagal.
Apa kaitan dengan Manuel Amalilio?
“Persoalannya ialah apakah kaitannya proses ekstradisi Manuel Amalilio dengan pencerobohan bersentaja pengikut Jamalul Kiram di Lahad Datu, sehingga menyebabkan Manila membatalkan proses membawa Amalilio balik ke Filipina? Jika ia tidak ada kaitan,mengapa pula Setiausaha Jabatan Keadilan Filipina Leila de Lima berkata sedemikian?
“Perlu diingatkan bahawa Leila de Lima membuat kenyataan tersebut hanya beberapa hari sahaja selepas Gani Patail mengumumkan di Putrajaya akan meneliti proses ekstradisi keatas Jamalul Kiram.
Pada 13 Mac Leila menyatakan usaha ekstradisi Manuel dibatalkan ekoran konflik di Sabah.
Seterusnya Mat Zain turut menyifatkan kelemahan tentera Malaysia yang menjaga sempadan dan kenyataan  menteri yang mengelirukan menyebabkan krisis di Lahad Datu berterusan.
Sebagai contoh beliau memetik kenyataan Menteri Dalam Negeri Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein pada 16 Februari dan Ketua Menteri Sabah Musa.
Hishammuddin dilaporkan berkata: “Kesemua ahli kumpulan bersenjata dari Filipina yang telah mendarat di Lahad Datu,Sabah, akan dihantar pulang ke negara asal mereka seberapa cepat yang mungkin. Berdasarkan daripada sumber inteligen, mereka bukan terdiri daripada kumpulan militen atau pengganas. Mereka merupakan penyokong Kesultanan Sulu dan beliau berharap dan berdoa mereka dapat diusir keluar segera”.
Musa pula dilaporkan berkata: “Kerajaan telah selesai mengadakan perbincangan (dengan penceroboh)dan mereka akan dihantar pulang ke negara asal.”
Menurut Mat Zain kenyataan sebegini telah mengelirukan tahap kewaspadaan pihak keselamatan dan menyebabkan Sabah dibolosi pengganas.
Setelah melebehi 70 orang dilaporkan terkorban bagi kedua-dua pihak pasukan keselamatan dan penceroboh sejak mereka menceroboh Sabah 12 Februari lalu.

Revealed: Taib, deforestation and illicit outflow

FMT Staff | March 19, 2013
An undercover video reveals the manner in which Sarawak's vast natural resources are being sold for profit by the powers-that-be, and the corruption involved.
VIDEO INSIDE
KUALA LUMPUR:  An international NGO recently posed as foreign investors seeking to buy land for oil palm plantations in Sarawak and unravelled in shocking detail the outflow of funds in Malaysia, the level of corruption in Sarawak and the depth of Chief Minister Taib Mahmud’s family’s involvement in raping the state.
According to Global Witness, they had approached the Regional Corridor Development Authority (RECODA), a government body charged with receiving foreign investment.
“An official at RECODA during a meeting in March 2012 directed our investigator to certain members of Taib’s family looking to sell their company licensed to log and clear land for plantations.
“Out of four land leases offered to Global Witness during 2012, members of the Chief Minister’s family were direct shareholders or beneficial owners of three of these.
“The fourth deal was proposed by an intermediary on the understanding that Taib would receive a multimillion dollar kickback from the selling party,” said Global Witness.
Among the key findings of their investigations were:
  • Kickbacks -  A representative of one of Sarawak’s biggest tycoons indicated that Taib would be likely to receive a multimillion dollar kickback for a plantation licence;
  • Corrupt land deals – Members of Taib’s family were allocated land through directives from the state Ministry of Resource Planning and Environment, headed by Taib, for a mere RM300,000, which when sold would make the family multi-million ringgit profits.
  • Tax evasions – A Taib-family owned company was offered for sale through an illegal transaction in Singapore designed to evade Malaysian tax.
Additionally, Global Witness also found out that there was a “well-established” team of lawyers who routinely facilitate illegal transactions in violation of Malaysian and Sarawak laws.
Global Witness was also told by senior government officials and a timber company executive that it was standard practice in Sarawak for companies to pay a personal kickback to Taib in return for obtaining timber and plantation licences, typically amounting to 10 per cent of the commercial value of the licence.

Project IC had Dr M's approval - former DO


Former Sandakan district officer Hassnar Ebrahim has admitted to being involved in ‘Project IC’ in Sabah in the 1980s - and he also claims he heard the scheme had been approved by then prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Hassnar said he was at a “secret meeting” in the 1980s, at which then Deputy Home Minister Megat Junid Megat Ayub had “openly admitted Mahathir’s involvement”.
A total of 15 officers were at the meeting, he said, including “three members from the police force, as well as representatives from the Immigration Department and National Registration Department (NRD)”.
Hassnar, 62, said this last night at a forum on the Sulu incursion into Lahad Datu, Sabah. The event was organised by Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall.
Now the PKR Batu Sapi chief, he told those present that the scheme to accord citizenship to Muslim immigrants was started in the early 1980s.
"Back then, Chinese voters represented the pendulum swing and would decide which party wins the state election,” Hassnar explained.
“So, there was this feeling that the presence of Muslims in the state must be solidified to ensure that the state remained in the hands of Muslims.”
Hassnar recounted that, on his first full day as the Sandakan district officer in 1982 - a post that he took upon the insistence of then Sabah chief Minister Harris Salleh (right) - he was instructed to sign 500 citizenship registration forms that did not have the particulars of the applicants.
"Between 1976 and 1984, I can say that no less than 125,000 immigrants were given citizenship in Sabah," he claimed.
When approached by Megat Junid to help make Project IC a success, Hassnar said, he tried to coax then Sabah NRD chief Sani Adnan to help, but that the latter expressed disgust at the idea.
"These are the people who will ruin this state later, Sani told me," Hassnar said.
Despite years of helping the federal government in the project, Hassnar was detained under the Internal Security Act in 1988 for 59 days.
"Megat Junid called me to Kuala Lumpur one day and he told me that Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) and BN were negotiating the possibility of PBS rejoining BN. One of the conditions then PBS leader Joseph Pairin Kitingan had laid down to BN was to get me arrested," he said.
He was subsequently arrested at the airport while trying to take a flight back to Sabah.
‘Umno orchestrated Silent Riot’
According to Hassnar, the rarely talked-about Silent Riot that took place in Kota Kinabalu on March 18,1986, after the BN-backed Parti Berjaya unexpectedly lost the 1985 state election to PBS, had been orchestrated by Umno top guns.
"We were told to take to the streets and demonstrate. Mahathir had apparently said that it was okay even if one or two casualties occurred," Hassnar claimed.
However, the riot did not go the way Hassnar and his comrades had expected.
Five people died and some 1,200 people were arrested, including Harris.
"We were fined RM100 each, but Harris challenged the fine. He was willing to take the matter to court and threatened to expose the truth if the authorities pressed further. He was the only one to be released without any charge," he added.
Hassnar lamented the fact that he had been imprisoned even though he had aided the federal government in the covert Project IC.
"All I would say is, don't be friends with people from Umno," he said.

GE13: The guessing game continues

There is an estimated date even for childbirth. It has been five years since the last general election and everyone is still guessing the election date.
Some people believe that the Parliament would be dissolved on 20 March, some said it would be on 22 March and some think it would be on 25 March. It depends on the Prime Minister and we can only continue waiting until he announces the date.
As no one knows when the Parliament will be dissolved, many scheduled plans and programmes have been shelved. For instance, politicians, political party supporters, media practitioners and all in the related fields dare not to take leave even during the one week school holiday which is going to start on 23 March. They are worried that the Prime Minister might suddenly make an announcement to dissolve the Parliament when they are away.
Such a situation has been staged over the past two years and some investment plans have been temporarily halted, affecting the financial operation. Master Builders Association Malaysia (MBAM) former vice president Tan Sri Tee Hock Seng recently said that due to the unknown election date, their company has failed to sell even a unit of house, while the applications for housing loans have also slowed down.
Since the election date has not yet been announced, leaders of both ruling and alternative coalitions are unable to focus on work, but busy attending political activities. For instance, the revised Malaysia Education Blueprint (2013-2025) has not been released, even we have already come to March of 2013.
Mobilisation activities are also cost and manpower consuming. The "My Beautiful Malaysia" volunteer programme was launched on 3 February to attract the participation of young people while the "1Million Women Purple Walk" and the 1Malaysia Komuniti Perwani" programme were launched on 17 March.
To create a favourable election atmosphere, they have implemented one after another money distribution plan, causing the surge of government spending. It has diverged from the deficit reduction plan.
Confrontations have been intensified by the all-time tense election atmosphere and political heat while supporters' emotions are raised. However, they have no way to vent their emotions. I cannot imagine what would happen during the official campaign period.
Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced in end of January this year that the elections will be held on 14 September. It is the first time in Australia to have a government that made such an early election date announcement. Gillard said that she did not mean to initiate the longest campaign period in Australia's history, but to make clear the time to govern the country and the time to run election campaigns. Announcing the election time early can help individuals, businesses, investors and consumers to arrange their plans for the year.
Why can the Australian ruling party give up the power to decide the election date, but not Malaysia?
The move of the US and other countries to set their election dates early can eliminate the worries of all and everyone can make their own arrangements based on the "election timetable" and focus on their work. Malaysia should also determine its election date to improve productivity.
In addition to stop the practice of leaving the election date decision to the ruling party, the Malaysian electoral system must also be reformed, including the use of proportional representation system. Requiring at least 30% of seats are allocated based on vote ration might be able to avoid a hung parliament.
We have put too much time and efforts in politics, slowing down the country's pace. It is now the time to return to the right path.

‘Set up Indian Affairs Ministry’

B Nantha Kumar | March 19, 2013
Malaysia Nanban Tamil daily feels that setting up an Indian Affairs Ministry is the only way to solve the problems of the community.
PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak should establish an Indian Affairs Ministry to ensure the government’s promises to the Indian community are met, the Malaysia Nanban reported today.
The nation’s leading Tamil daily claimed that it was not enough for Najib to make promises for the community as Pakatan Rakyat, the opposition pact, had already attracted the Indians through its policies.
In an article today, a commentator known as “Evukanai” claimed that the Malaysia Indian community was disappointed with the government because it was unable to deliver on Najib’s promises to the community.
The writer argued that the civil service, which is dominated by Malays, was the main reason why policies and promises to the community were delayed or never materialised.
He cited the matriculation intake for students last year when only 700 Indian students secured their matriculation seats when a total of 1,509 seats were granted to the community.
He said MIC’s failure to ensure Indian officers occupy high positions in the Education Ministry was one of the reasons why only few Indian students obtained matriculation seats.
The paper also said the Serendah crematorium project was another example why the people were shunning the Barisan Nasional.

Waythamoorthy’s hunger strike
The crematorium was completed some six months ago but it is still not open to public. During the Hulu Selangor by-election in 2010, Najib promised RM2 million to build a crematorium in Serendah.
However, the project was mired in controversy after it was found that the building did not meet certain specifications.
The newspaper also highlighted Najib’s promise to re-organise Tamil schools in the country.
It said although a whopping RM540 million was awarded to all Tamil schools, the conditions of the Tamil school were still deplorable.
Malaysia Nanban also raised a question over the prime minister’s promise to build seven new Tamil schools but till now there are no signs of the schools.
The Tamil daily insisted that an Indian Affairs Ministry was the best solution to iron out the woes of the community.
Makkal Osai, meanwhile, requested representatives from both BN and Pakatan to set aside their political differences to meet Hindraf leader P Waythamoorthy, who is currently on a hunger strike.
The Tamil daily’s managing director S Sunther called on Pakatan and BN to meet Waythamoorthy at least on humanitarian grounds.
Sunther visited the latter yesterday along with MIC central working committee member KP Samy.
Waythamoorthy, on March 10, went on a hunger strike to press BN and Pakatan to endorse Hindraf’s five-year blueprint to solve the problems of the marginalised Indian community.

Berikut adalah luahan beliau;

"Seperti mana kita tahu, masyarakat india paling terpinggir di negara ini"

"Guru besar sekolah tersebut kata, 30 thn telah berusaha mendapat tanah utk sekolah ini tapi masih tidak dpt"

"saya telah kumpul dokuman2 sekolah dan kirim surat masalah tersebut pada PM, TPM & MB untuk menyelasaikan masalah, tapi sampai sekarang masalah ini belum diselesaikan"

"Jika mereka merasakan undi 1,000 kanak-kanak sekolah di sini adalah penting, mereka akan diberi tanah dan membina sekolah"

Puluhan ribu IC biru diberi untuk orang Sulu – Bekas Ketua Daerah

(Oleh Sidiqin Omar)
KUALA LUMPUR 19 MAC: Bekas Ketua Daerah Sandakan, Hassnar Ebrahim mengakui menandatangani puluhan ribu borang kosong bagi membolehkan pendaftaran kad pengenalan biru (IC).
Beliau menandatangani borang kosong HNR3 iaitu dokumen untuk pengesahan kelahiran bagi membolehkan seseorang mendapat kad pengenalan, tanpa mengetahui nama dan butiran yang akan diisi.
Hassnar (tengah) dalam forum pendedahan malam tadi.
Hassnar (tengah) dalam forum pendedahan malam tadi.
Borang pendaftaran, katanya, diterima dari ketua-ketua kampung yang kemudian diserahkan kepada Pegawai Daerah untuk diproses.
Membuat pendedahan pada pada Forum ‘Kisah dari Lahad Datu, Siapa Pengkhianat Sebenar?’ malam tadi, beliau berkata lebih 125,000 kad pengenalan dikeluarkan kepada pendatang haram di Sabah antara April 1976 hingga April 1984.
Malah, katanya, beliau diarah menandatangani 500 borang HNR3 walaupun baru tiga hari dilantik menyandang jawatan berkenaan pada 1982.
“Borang HNR3 adalah dokumen sah. Siapa yang bawa borang berkenaan ke Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) akan didaftar sebagai surat lahir (beranak),” katanya pada forum itu di Dewan Himpunan Cina Kuala Lumpur Selangor (KLSCAH).
Kata Hassnar, BN juga mengambil kesempatan atas peperangan di Jolo, selatan Filipina untuk mendaftar puluhan ribu pelarian termasuk warga Sulu menjadi warganegara Malaysia menggunakan borang HNR3.
Beliau percaya, ada 800,000 warga Sulu yang dijadikan warganegara Malaysia dengan sebahagiannya diberi kerakyatan melalui Projek IC.
Hassnar ditahan mengikut Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA) pada 1988 selama dua bulan, kemudian sebagai tahanan rumah selama dua tahun di Sandakan bermula 6 September 1998.

Projek IC: Dr M pembohong besar! – Bekas Ketua Daerah Sandakan

(Oleh Sidiqin Omar)
KUALA LUMPUR 19 MAC: Bekas Ketua Daerah Sandakan, Hassnar Ebrahim menyelar kenyataan bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yang menuduh pegawai kerajaan menjual kad pengenalan (IC) untuk kepentingan diri.
“Dr Mahathir pembohong besar,” kata Hassnar membidas kenyataan Mahathir seperti dilapor Bernama dalam program ‘Bicara Minda di Papar, Sabah 17 Mac lalu.
IC PROJEK copyMahathir dilaporkan berkata, rakyat Sabah tidak boleh mempersalahkan kerajaan semasa pentadbirannya kerana penyelewengan dilakukan pegawai kerajaan atas kepentingan individu.
Tegas Hassnar, projek IC adalah dalam pengetahuan Mahathir yang tidak selesa dengan pentadbiran Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) antara tahun 1990 dengan 1994.
Malah kata Hassnar, dirinya menjadi ‘bahan tawaran’ antara Presiden PBS, Joseph Pairin Kitingan dengan pentadbiran di Kuala Lumpur yang ketika itu berniat untuk menyertai semula Barisan Nasional.
“Salah satu syarat (rundingan), Joseph minta saya dimasukkan ke dalam penjara,” kata Hassnar.
Tegasnya, sekiranya Dr Mahathir memikirkan bahawa projek tersebut sebagai satu kesalahan, dokumen IC tersebut perlu ditarik balik.
“Tapi ada kita pernah dengar IC yang dikatakan dijual yang kononnya tidak sepatutnya dikeluarkan kepada individu yang diimport dari luar ditarik? Tidak ada!” tegas Hassnar.
Beliau berkata demikian pada Forum ‘Mahkamah Rakyat: Kisah dari Lahad Datu, Siapa Pengkhianat Sebenar?’ di Dewan Himpunan Cina Kuala Lumpur Selangor (KLSCAH) malam tadi. – SDQ

Undercover sting exposes Malaysia land-grab

Allegations of corruption get louder following secret tapes showing plunder of resource-rich Sarawak province
Long Napir, Malaysia - Plantations and logging are ravaging Malaysia's majestic Borneo region and indigenous people who have lived for centuries here say they are increasingly being uprooted from their once-pristine lands.
But as the timber and palm oil companies swarm over the rugged landscape of resplendent rivers and ancient rainforests, villagers in Long Napir in the country's biggest state Sarawak have vowed to thwart any further land-grabs.
The village is a settlement of longhouses, the traditional communal housing favoured by indigenous people in eastern Malaysia's Borneo island.
Under the Sarawak Land Law, indigenous people have rights over areas as long as they can prove they have lived in or used the lands prior to January 1, 1958.
"We have no land to farm, our rivers have become muddy, there's hardly any fish left anymore."
- Tamin Sepuluh Ribu, villager

But the surrounding ancient rainforests that are so essential to their traditional way of life is under threat because of logging and plantation companies. Over the past 30 years, Sarawak - one of the richest Malaysian states - has become one of the largest exporters of tropical timber.
Despite its wealth, profits have failed to trickle down, and the people here are some of the poorest in the country.
Long Napir villagers lay the blame for their plight squarely on one man: the state's powerful chief minister, Abdul Mahmud Taib, who is in charge of all land classification and the allocation of lucrative forestry and plantation licenses.
"He lives, the rest of us suffer," Tamin Sepuluh Ribu, a former village headman, told Al Jazeera. "We have no land to farm, our rivers have become muddy, there's hardly any fish left anymore."
'Coterie of cronies'
Global Witness, a non-governmental organisation working against environmental exploitation, has investigated and exposed the situation in remote eastern Malaysia.
An undercover Global Witness investigator posing as an investor was offered several opportunities to purchase land in Sarawak by company officials linked to Chief Minister Taib. In each instance, the land in question was occupied by indigenous communities, who have valid claims to ownership rights under Malaysian law.
Global Witness said the indigenous areas were being sold by companies with close personal or political ties to the chief minister.
Taib has held the post since 1981, and has been repeatedly accused of corruption during his nearly 32-year rule.
The US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur noted in one cable released by WikiLeaks: "Chief Minister Taib Mahmud … doles out timber-cutting permits while patrolling the underdeveloped state using 14 helicopters, and his family's companies control much of the economy."
The American cable added that, "All major contracts and a significant portion of land to be converted to palm oil plantations [including on indigenous 'customary land rights' that the state government has refused to recognize] are given to these three companies."
People in Sarawak are "fed up" with Taib's administration, "seen as only enriching his family and a small coterie of cronies", it said.
Under investigation
Global Witness released a November 2012 report titled, "In the future, there will be no forests."
"Taib's powerful executive position and personal responsibility for the issuance of lucrative logging and plantation licences has enabled him to systematically extract 'unofficial payments' from the state's timber tycoons for the enrichment of himself and his family," the report said.
Taib, meanwhile, denied the corruption allegations as "wholly untrue and malicious", said the report.
In 2011, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission launched an official investigation into Taib, which continues at present.
In secretly taped negotiations provided to Al Jazeera, the Global Witness investigator discussed buying land with company shareholders Fatimah Abdul Rahman and Norlia Abdul Rahman - Taib's first cousins. Fatimah admitted the parcel of land under discussion had been transferred to them by Chief Minister Taib.
"Yeah, he's the one who gave us the land. He's my cousin," Fatimah said, laughing.
In 2011, Taib gave his cousins 5,000 hectares of land for about $300,000 dollars, according to leaked land registry documents. Having secured agriculture and timber licences, they were trying to sell it a year later for more than $16mn.
Later, discussing the ease of receiving a forestry license, Fatimah told the Global Witness investigator: "The Land and Survey Department, they are the ones that issue this licence. Of course, this is from the CM's [Chief Minister's] directive, but I can speak to the CM very easily."
Fatimah and Norlia did not respond to Al Jazeera's requests for comment.
'Naughty people'
Over the years, Taib's government has sought to limit the exercise of indigenous land rights. More than 200 land dispute cases are now before Sarawak courts, brought on behalf of claimants from indigenous communities.
Jannie Lasimbang, Malaysia’s National Human Rights Commissioner, told Al Jazeera that numerous amendments have eroded indigenous land rights over the years.
“The commission is concerned about the high degree of frustration, anger and desperation among indigenous peoples,” Lasimbang said.
In 1994, the Sarawak government gave the minister in charge of land the power to extinguish Native Customary Rights to land. Two years later, it was legislated that land dispute cases were automatically to presume the land belongs to the state, and the burden of proof was shifted to the claimant.
In 2011, the definition of "native" was amended to include "any party entering into a joint-venture plantation deal with the Land Custody and Development Authority".
In the secretly recorded conversations with Global Witness, Taib's cousins Fatimah and Norlia showed disdain and contempt for indigenous rights, describing local villagers as "naughty people".
"So the minute they hear this land has been given, has been titled to this company to do oil palm and what-not, they'll plonk themselves there," said Fatimah.
Her sister Norlia added, "They may harass you, that's all. They are actually squatters on the land, because the land doesn't belong to them. It's government land. So they're squatting."
The secret dealings caught on tape only just scratch the surface of the Taib family's business interests.
"I know people are talking about him [Taib] being corrupted and all, but I think who isn't in this world when they're leaders?"
- Fatimah Abdul Rahman, Taib's cousin

Leaked land registry documents analysed by Swiss non-governmental organisation Bruno Manser Fonds suggest that companies linked to Taib's family control about 200,000 hectares of land in Sarawak - an area twice the size of Hong Kong. Global Witness estimates it has a market value of $500mn.
Divorce settlement proceedings in Malaysia between one of Taib's son, Mahmud Abu Bakir Abdul Taib and his first wife Shahnaz Abdul Majid, also highlight the vast wealth of the family. The ex-wife testified that Mahmud had an estimated $233 million deposited in more than 100 bank accounts across the world. 
In June 2011, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission said it had launched an investigation into Chief Minister Taib, but gave no further details.  When Al Jazeera inquired about the progress of the case last month, the commission said it had "no comment on the matter".
Taib's office did not respond to Al Jazeera's request for an interview, but he has consistently denied allegations of corruption.
The family appears not view the accusations with much seriousness. As Taib's cousin Fatimah declared on tape: "I know people are talking about him [Taib] being corrupted and all, but I think who isn't in this world when they're leaders?"
One villager in Sarawak promised not to allow the status quo to continue.
"We will fight on at all costs,” farmer Vincent Balingau told Al Jazeera. “We let them take timber in the past, but we had no idea they were planning to take our land."

DAKWA TIAN: Najib terdesak, takut hilang Sabah, pemimpin PR lain juga bakal jadi mangsa

Written by  Wong Choon Mei, Malaysia Chronicle

VIDEO DIPAPARKAN Ahli Parlimen Batu Tian Chua mengaku tidak bersalah terhadap tuduhan menghasut yang dikenakan terhadapnya oleh kerajaan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak kerana didakwa mengaitkan parti pemerintah Umno kepada pencerobohan Lahad Datu.
"Ini adalah dakwaan yang bermotifkan politik dan saya akan membersihkan nama saya melalui undang-undang," kata Tian semasa beliau membuat pengakuannya.
Peguamnya, Latheefa Koya dan N Surendran, tegas dalam pembelaan mereka. Menyebut dakwaan sebagai penyalahgunaan kuasa dan proses keadilan, mereka mengecam pentadbiran Najib kerana lebih mementingkan Umno dari kerajaan.
"Kenapa menggunakan Akta Hasutan? Akta Hasutan digunakan terhadap orang-orang yang cuba untuk menjejaskan kestabilan kerajaan. Umno adalah sebuah parti politik. Ia memang penyalahgunaan undang-undang. Ini jelas bermotifkan politik. ia adalah satu helah kotor dan Umno sudah menjadi penjahat, "N Surendran memberitahu pemberita setelah keluar dari bilik mahkamah.
"Tian (kononnya) berkata Umno telah bersandiwara. Jadi mengapa Peguam Negara membawa pertuduhan terhadap Tian Chua kerana mengkritik Umno? Apakah maksud semua ini? Ini bermakna jika pembangkang mengkritik kerajaan, mereka akan mengheret kita ke mahkamah dan mahkamah akan melabel kami sebagai penjenayah. Kami amat marah dengan pertuduhan ini. Apakah jenis demokrasi ini? "


Kes Lahad Datu alasan untuk dakwa pembangkang menjelang PRU ke-13
Surendran dan Latheefa, yang juga ahli senior PKR, memberi amaran bahawa lebih banyak pemimpin pembangkang akan didakwa tidak lama lagi termasuk Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, ketua de facto Pakatan Rakyat. Media Umno telah menghasut bahawa Anwarlah dalang pencerobohan Lahad Datu, yang telah terbukti menjadi bencana politik bagi sebelum Najib bersedia untuk mengadakan pilihan raya umum ke-13 di negara ini.
Akibat berada dalam tekanan yang hebat dan dalam percubaan untuk menangkis dakwaan bahawa dia tersilap percaturan dalam usaha mengusir kira-kira 200 orang lelaki bersenjata dari Sulu, terdapat kebimbangan bahawa Najib kini cuba untuk menyalahkan Pembangkang dengan taktik ‘apa jua cara sekalipun’ seperti Hasutan dakwaan hasutan terhadap Tian pagi ini.
"Beberapa orang pemimpin pembangkang seperti (timbalan presiden PKR), Azmin Ali, (Ahli Parlimen DAP Puchong) Gobind Singh sedang disoal dan kami menjangkakan lebih ramai lagi akan disoal siasat. Media dan pemimpin Umno serang, Attorney-General dan polis kutuk. jadi mereka bekerja bersama-sama," kata Surendran.
" Masih terdapat serangan berterusan terhadap Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Kami menjangka mereka juga akan cuba mengambil tindakan di sana walaupun tidak ada asas bagi pembohongan dan fitnah terhadap Ketua Pembangkang berkenaan pencerobohan Lahad Datu yang merupakan isu keselamatan negara. Kerajaan Umno sedang mempolitikkan isu ini dengan menjadikan pemimpin pembangkang sebagai sasaran."
Najib terdesak guna Tian untuk manipulasi orang Melayu
Ikat jamin telah ditetapkan pada RM5,000-00. Pasukan undang-undang Tian akan memohon kepada Mahkamah Tinggi untuk membatalkan dakwaan ini.
Diapit oleh penyokong, peguam dan rakan-rakan dari parti PKR, Tian turut membidas pihak berkuasa kerana membulinya, dan turut menegaskan tiada asas bagi tuduhan itu. Kes dijangka bermula pada pukul 9 pagi di Kompleks Mahkamah Jalan Duta, tetapi bermula hanya sekitar 11:30 pagi.
"Ia nampak seperti mereka tidak pasti apa yang perlu dilakukan," Tian memberitahu Malaysia Chronicle apabila dia diiringi masuk ke dalam mahkamah.
Sementara itu, ramai pemimpin dan penyokong PKR dan PR berkumpul untuk menunjukkan sokongan kepada Tian yang berusia 50 tahun itu. Ketua Bahagian Disiplin PKR, Tan Kee Kwong, Ketua Bahagian Johor, Chua Jui Meng, Ahli Parlimen Puchong Gobind Singh Deo, Ahli Parlimen Selayang William Leong adalah antara mereka yang bersama dengan penyokong Tian serta media, yang memenuhi mahkamah yang kecil.
Mereka hanya dibenarkan berdiri dan ramai dihalang dari masuk.
"Beliau telah didakwa di bawah Akta Hasutan yang telah dijanjikan oleh Najib untuk dihapuskan. Ada sesuatu yang tidak betul. Jelas Najib begitu terdesak dengan keadaan di Sabah. Menurut analisa pensyarah UiTM Arnold Puyok, 14 kerusi Cina dan KDM akan dimenangi oleh Pakatan Rakyat ditambah lagi dengan 2 yang telah berpaling iaitu Wilfrid Bumburing (MP Tuaran) dan Lajim Ukin (Ahli Parlimen Beaufort)," Jui Meng memberitahu Malaysia Chronicle.
"Itu akan menjadikannya 16 daripada 25 asal dan ini bermakna Najib sudah terdesak. Umno juga terdesak Mereka perlu melakukan apa sahaja -. Dengan licik atau apa jua - untuk memanipulasi keadaan, untuk memanipulasi minda Melayu- orang Islam, tetapi tuduhan itu sendiri tidak akan masuk akal.

Balas dendam kerana BN Sabah membelot?
Tian yang berusia 50 tahun memainkan peranan penting dalam membuka laluan bagi Bumburing dan Lajim untuk meninggalkan BN. Beliau merupakan ketua perunding antara 2 lelaki dan gabungan Pakatan Rakyat.
Apabila Bumburing dan Lajim telah berpaling, ia mewujudkan satu lubang besar dalam BN Sabah, dan ditambah pula dengan kejutan selepas kegagalan Najib dalam menangani operasi di Lahad Datu, Umno sudah pasti akan kehilangan negeri penting itu, yang ironinya pernah digelar Najib sebagai "simpanan tetap" BN bagi undi.
Tempoh pertama sebagai ahli parlimen, Tian merupakan seorang sangat mesra dan popular dengan dikalangan rakyat. Beliau amat mudah dikenali di jalanan dan mereka biasanya akan tergesa-gesa untuk berjabat tangan atau mengambil gambar dengannya. Nama penuh beliau adalah Chua Tian Chang dan dia berasal dari Melaka, anak sulung dari 4 orang adik-beradik, anak kepada seorang peniaga beras dan guru sekolah Cina Hakka.
Dakwaan
Tian dituduh menghubungkan penembakan dua anggota polis semasa serbuan 1 Mac ke atas pengganas Sulu kepada Umno. Komen beliau yang dilaporkan di dalam portal Keadilan Daily mendakwa bahawa kejadian tembak-menembak di Kampung Tanduo adalah konspirasi Umno untuk mengalihkan perhatian rakyat dan menakutkan mereka.
Tian - yang teguh mempertahankan komennya - telah menjelaskan bahawa kenyataannya tidak ada kaitan dengan kejadian itu. Menurut beliau, apabila laporan KeadilanDaily diterbitkan, pihak berkuasa masih belum mengesahkan serbuan atau kematian.
Tian juga berkata, maksud "konspirasi" merujuk kepada perbincangan yang telah digembar-gemburkan sekurang-kurangnya 3 minggu sebelum serbuan merujuk kepada Najib yang sengaja melambatkan resolusi pencerobohan kerana dia mahu mengambil kesempatan ke atas isu itu untuk menakut-nakutkan pengundi Sabah untuk menyokong BN pada pilihan raya umum ke-13.
Editor Keadilan daily dan wartawan telah menyokong dakwaan Tian dalam satu kenyataan baru-baru ini yang telah diberikan kepada polis.
Selain dari menghubungkan Umno dengan konspirasi, Tian juga dituduh oleh blogger Umno sebagai berkata pada ceramah atau perhimpunan politik di Puchong bahawa polis itu telah "mati katak".
Komen yang dianggap sebagai tidak sensitif dan menghormati pengorbanan yang dibuat oleh polis yang terbunuh dalam menjalankan tugas. Tian telah sekali lagi menafikan tuduhan itu, menunjukkan bukti bahawa dia semasa itu berada di Johor mengambil bahagian dalam acara mengumpul dana pada masa dia didakwa oleh blogger Umno mengutarakan komen "mati Katak" itu.

Dokumen "Anugerah Mahathir" Dikoyakkan?

PANAS! Dokumen "Anugerah Mahathir" Dikoyakkan?

Bekas ketua menteri Sabah, Harris Salleh mendakwa mendapat maklumat bahawa polis menjalankan operasi merampas dan memusnahkan dokumen pengenalan diri yang diberikan kepada masyarakat Suluk di negeri itu.

Laporan portal berita Daily Express menyebut, Harris mengutus surat kepada Menteri Dalam Negeri, Hishammuddin Hussein agar menghentikan operasi ke atas masyarakat Suluk di Lahad Datu dan Semporna itu.

Menurut laporan itu, Harris mendakwa diminta berbuat demikian oleh beberapa orang pemimpin masyarakat tersebut.

"Pemimpin Suluk ini melaporkan bahawa polis mengambil kad pengenalan, kad pengenalan mereka dan dokumen IMM3 (orang Suluk) dan memusnahkannya.

“Ini tidak wajar bagi pasukan polis Malaysia. Perbuatan ini bertentangan dengan apa jua tamadun yang diketahui, mahupun dari segi agama, undang-undang dan dasar kerajaan Malaysia,” katanya seperti dipetik dalam laporan itu.

Harris dalam laporan itu juga berkata, polis tidak berkuasa untuk memusnahkan apa-apa dokumen kerajaan persekutuan.

“Mereka hanya boleh berbuat demikian selepas mendapat pengesahan daripada Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara,” katanya lagi.

Tindakan itu juga akan menimbulkan lebih banyak permusuhan di antara orang Suluk dan Sabah, tambahnya.

Kenyataannya itu timbul susulan dakwaan dilaporkan media Filipina mengenai dakwaan pelanggaran hak asasi yang dilakukan pasukan keselamatan Malaysia dalam operasi di pantai timur Sabah.

Portal Inquirer Global Nation pada hari Sabtu lalu yang memetik seorang pemimpin Sulu melaporkan, pasukan keselamatan Malaysia menyerbu kediaman warga berkenaan di Sabah dan memusnahkan dokumen tersebut.

Datuk Bandar Jolo, Sulu itu mendakwa, golongan yang memiliki dokumen yang sah seperti pasport dan dokumen pengenalan juga tidak terkecuali.

"Dokumen ini didakwa dikoyak di hadapan mereka," katanya.

Beliau turut mendakwa, warga berkenaan dipaksa berlari sebelum ditembak.

Menteri Pertahanan, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi pada hari Selasa lalu dilaporkan menafikan dakwaan berhubung tembakan berkenaan.

NOWHERE LEFT TO RUN, NAJIB: Cecil admitted Najib asked him to draft SD2 - Americk

Written by  Maria Begum, Malaysia Chronicle
It looks like he noose is closing in on Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, who has long been suspected of involvement in the sensational Altantuya Shaariibuu murder..
At the annual general meeting of the Malaysian Bar in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, lawyers were told that prominent colleague Cecil Abraham had admitted to acting on Najib's instructions to prepare a second statutory declaration (SD2) for the purpose of overturning a first (SD1), which had been prepared by another lawyer.
To Najib's critics, it is poetic justice that Abraham's confession was revealed on the very day that the signatory to the document was cremated. P Balasubramaniam, the private investigator who had been enticed into signing the Abraham-prepared document, had died just a day ago of a massive heart attack.
In 2008, Bala had stunned the country when he made public SD1, in which he had linked Najib to the Altantuya murder. That document had been prepared by his lawyer Americk Sidhu.
Within 24 hours, as Bala later revealed, he was given a large sum of money to sign Abraham's SD2 and then made to flee to Chennai, where he had lived in exile with his family until last month.
"Cecil met me and admitted to drafting the second SD without Bala's instructions. The instructions came from Najib," Malaysiakini reported Americk as telling members of the Malaysian Bar at their closed door meeting.

This is murder, don't hide behind silence
Bala's role in the Altantuya saga began when he was hired by Najib's close aide Razak Baginda. His job was protect Baginda and daughter Rowena from Altantuya who had been blackmailing Baginda before she was killed.
In an immediate response, Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo called on Najib to come clean on the matter.
"Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak should respond to the allegation by lawyer Americk Singh Sidhu that the second SD of the late PI Bala was prepared on his instructions," Gobind said in a statement.

"The Bar Council should also tell us why there has been a delay in the probe into this complaint. The Bar Council is obviously unusually slow in its probe of this matter.
Other Opposition lawmakers joined the call to the PM, who has made matters worse for himself and his party with his refusal to respond.
Americk and Abraham are senior lawyers, well known in the industry, and it would only bolster the public perception that Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor were somehow tied in to the murder of the 28-year-old Mongolian national.
"Najib has sworn on the Quran in a mosque that he and Rosmah have never known Altantuya. But now everything is being revealed in the Malaysian Bar AGM," MP for Bukit Gantang Nizar Jamaluddin said on Twitter."

To dissolve Parliament on Monday?
Altantuya was killed by two of Najib's former bodyguards in 2006 after she pestered Baginda for what she had told Bala was a US$500,000 commission for the Malaysian government's purchase of submarines.
At that time Najib was both Deputy Prime Minister as well as Defense Minister and it was he who gave the green light for the navy's procurement of 2 Scorpene submarines.
Altantuya is believed to have acted as translator for Baginda, who had helped negotiate in the deal with French arms maker DCNS. Baginda was initially charged for abetting in her murder but was controversially acquitted while the two bodyguards were sentenced to hang.
The two men have appealed and their case is due to be heard in June, which Najib's critics have pointed out would be safely past the date of the country's 13th general election. The government-controlled press have hinted that Najib would dissolve Parliament on March 25, with voting day sometime in April.
However, there are now red-hot rumors that Najib will dissolve Parliament on Monday, March 18.
The main reasons cited for the change in plan are his mishandling of an intrusion by armed Sulu gunmen onto Malaysian shores, his exacerbation of the ensuing fallout by trying to pin the blame on Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim and Batu MP Tian Chua, plus the renewed focus on the statutory declarations following Bala's sudden death.

Did not want the truth to get buried
Americk, who had broken the news of Bala's demise to the press on Friday, said that in revealing to the Bar what had been told to him, he was breaking a promise to Abraham not to tell anyone.
However, Americk said he did so because he did not want to let the trail to the truth behind the Altantuya murder get buried with Bala's death.
"I informed the AGM after much torment of a sleepless night," said Americk, who had been visibly been shaken by Bala's death, describing the 53-year-old investigator as one of the "best Malaysians". [P.I. Bala's death: All eyes now swing to SD1 detailing the Najib-Altantuya link]
“I told Bala before he died that Cecil had confessed to it and he was quite happy about it. I told him to let nature takes its course. He agreed with me and I have to continue with this for Balasubramaniam."
According to Americk, he met Abraham at a restaurant near his office two weeks ago. The meeting was arranged by another lawyer. Americk does not plan to complain about Abraham to the Bar. The act of drafting a second SD to nullify the first is illegal under Malaysian laws.

"Cecil admitted to me that he was the one who drafted the second SD and that he was under Najib's instructions to do so. Cecil apologised to me for it and I accepted his apology," repeated Americk.
Sirul's statement and who ordered the killing?
On Thursday, Americk had detailed out how he and Bala came to draft the SD1 amid accusations from Umno-linked blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin that Bala did so because he had been offered money by Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim.  [ NOT BULLSHIT, RPK: Don't try to distract attention from who ordered Altantuya's MURDER!]
Americk denied any money was taken from anyone for SD1, which he confirmed Bala had wanted to effect to point out the discrepancies in the government's investigation of the case. He also accused Raja Petra of trying to confuse the issue so as to deflect attention from the key question in the murder case that till now remains unanswered - who had ordered the killing?
Today, Americk reiterated this point. According to him, it had been clear to them that all along the two bodyguards Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar and Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri were acting under orders.

"If you look at Sirul's 112 cautioned statements, he categorically had said that they were offered RM50,000 to RM100,000 to get rid of this woman.  The question here is who ordered it. Why the chain of command was not brought up in court. We have Musa Safri (Najib's former aide de camp), their superior officer, but he was never introduced as a witness.

Bala was among those who last saw Altantuya alive. In fact, it was he who confirmed her identity to one of her killers, Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri.
"After talking to Aminah (Altantuya) for about 15 minutes, a red Proton aeroback arrived with a woman and two men. I now know the woman to be Lance Corporal Rohaniza and the men, Azilah Hadri and Sirul Azahar. They were all in plain clothes. Azilah walked towards me while the other two stayed in the car," Bala wrote in item 29 of his SD1.
"Azilah asked me whether the woman was Aminah and I said ‘Yes’. He then walked off and made a few calls on his handphone. After 10 minutes another vehicle, a blue Proton Saga, driven by a Malay man, passed by slowly. The drivers window had been wound down and the driver was looking at us." (item 30 in SD1)
"Azilah then informed me they would be taking Aminah away. I informed Aminah they were arresting her. The other two persons then got out of the red Proton and exchanged seats so that Lance Corporal Rohaniza and Aminah were in the back while the two men were in the front. They drove off and that is the last I ever saw of Aminah." (item 31 in SD1)

Of mortality and guilt: A vindication for Bala

Bala's body was returned to his family late on Friday night after an autopsy that confirmed cause of death was due to a heart attack. Last rites were performed for him this afternoon.
The 53-year-old had returned to Malaysia last month amid a hero's welcome for his brave decision to come out and reveal all to the public. However, heart disease does not know how to discriminate and he was forced to interrupt a tell-all tour of the country to seek treatment for 3 clogged arteries a couple of weeks ago.
"Malaysia lost a brave man in the person of P.I. Balasubramaniam. However, those who believe that now the truth will never be known are wrong. Bala has made much information known such as the involvement of Nasir Safa, Musa Safri and Nizam Razak. The public knows who these personalities are. One day, the full truth will be know," MP for Subang Sivarasa Rasiah had told Malaysia Chronicle.
Indeed, that day of reckoning for Altantuya and also for Bala, whose reputation has been besmirched by accusations that he was a mercenary who 'sang' for money from the Opposition, may come much earlier anyone had anticipated.
Mortality and guilt are a potent cocktail. Perhaps in the days that come, more of those involved in what is now clear to see was a massive cover-up to shield Najib and his Umno party will step forward and take their place in history by telling the truth.
Not just for Altantuya, Bala, or the nation but  most of all, for themselves and their children.
All eyes on SD1 and SD2:  The Najib link
Meanwhile, all eyes are on the SD1 drafted by Americk and SD2 drafted by Abraham. Bala was after all among those who last saw Altantuya alive. In fact, it was he who confirmed her identity to one of her killers, Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri.
In SD1 (scroll below), Bala had detailed Najib's connection to Altantuya in item 25 as told to him by Baginda. Many parts were corroborated by Altantuya when she spoke to him just hours before she was killed, in item 28:
In items 49, 50, 51, 52, Bala again mentioned Najib.

25. During this discussion and in an attempt to persuade me to continue my employment with him, Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that :-
> He had been introduced to Aminah by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at a diamond exhibition in Singapore.
> Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak informed Abdul Razak Baginda that he had a sexual relationship with Aminah and that she was susceptible to anal intercourse.
> Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wanted Abdul Razak Baginda to look after Aminah as he did not want her to harass him since he was now the Deputy Prime Minister.
> Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Abdul Razak Baginda and Aminah had all been together at a dinner in Paris.
> Aminah wanted money from him as she felt she was entitled to a USD$500,000.00 commission on a submarine deal she assisted with in Paris.

28. Whist I was talking to Aminah, she informed me of the following :
> That she met Abdul Razak Baginda in Singapore with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

STATUTORY DECLARATION (Bala's first SD or SD1 drafted by Americk Sidhu)
I, Balasubramaniam a/l Perumal (NRIC NO: xxxxxx-xx-6235) a Malaysian Citizen of full age and residing at xxxxx, Selangor do solemly and sincerely declare as follows :-
1. I have been a police officer with the Royal Malaysian Police Force having jointed as a constable in 1981 attached to the Police Field Force. I was then promoted to the rank of lance Corporal and finally resigned from the Police Force in 1998 when I was with the Special Branch.
2. I have been working as a free lance Private Investigator since I left the Police Force.
3. Sometime in June or July 2006, I was employed by Abdul Razak Baginda for a period of 10 days to look after him at his office at the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang between the hours of 8am to 5pm each working day as apparently he was experiencing disturbances from a third party.
4. I resigned from this job after 2 ½ days as I was not receiving any proper instructions.
5. I was however re-employed by Abdul Razak Baginda on the 05-10-2006 as he had apparently received a harassing phone call from a Chinese man calling himself ASP Tan who had threatened him to pay his debts. I later found out this gentleman was in fact a private investigator called Ang who was employed by a Mongolian woman called Altantuya Shaaribuu.
6. Abdul Razak Baginda was concerned that a person by the name of Altantuya Shaaribuu, a Mongolian woman, was behind this threat and that she would be arriving in Malaysia very soon to try and contact him.
7. Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that he was concerned by this as he had been advised that Altantuya Shaaribuu had been given some powers by a Mongolian ‘bomoh’ and that he could never look her in the face because of this.
8. When I enquired as to who this Mongolian woman was, Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that she was a friend of his who had been introduced to him by a VIP and who asked him to look after her financially.
9. I advised him to lodge a police report concerning the threatening phone call he had received from the Chinese man known as ASP Tan but he refused to do so as he informed me there were some high profile people involved.
10. Abdul Razak Baginda further told me that Altantuya Shaaribuu was a great liar and good in convincing people. She was supposed to have been very demanding financially and that he had even financed a property for her in Mongolia.
11. Abdul Razak Baginda then let me listen to some voice messages on his handphone asking him to pay what was due otherwise he would be harmed and his daughter harassed.
12. I was therefore supposed to protect his daughter Rowena as well.
13. On the 09.10.2006 I received a phone call from Abdul Razak Baginda at about 9.30 am informing me that Altantuya was in his office and he wanted me there immediately. As I was in the midst of a surveillance, I sent my assistant Suras to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office and I followed a little later. Suras managed to control the situation and had persuaded Altantuya and her two friends to leave the premises. However Altantuya left a note written on some Hotel Malaya note paper, in English, asking Abdul Razak Baginda to call her on her handphone (number given) and wrote down her room number as well.
14. Altantuya had introduced herself to Suras as ‘Aminah’ and had informed Suras she was there to see her boyfriend Abdul Razak Baginda.
15. These 3 Mongolian girls however returned to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office at the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang again, the next day at about 12.00 noon. They did not enter the building but again informed Suras that they wanted to meet Aminah’s boyfriend, Abdul Razak Baginda.
16. On the 11.10.2006, Aminah returned to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office on her own and gave me a note to pass to him, which I did. Abdul Razak Baginda showed me the note which basically asked him to call her urgently.
17. I suggested to Abdul Razak Baginda that perhaps it may be wise to arrange for Aminah to be arrested if she harassed him further, but he declined as he felt she would have to return to Mongolia as soon as her cash ran out.
18. In the meantime I had arranged for Suras to perform surveillance on Hotel Malaya to monitor the movements of these 3 Mongolian girls, but they recognized him. Apparently they become friends with Suras after that and he ended up spending a few nights in their hotel room.
19. When Abdul Razak Baginda discovered Suras was becoming close to Aminah he asked me to pull him out from Hotel Malaya.
20. On the 14.10.2006, Aminah turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house in Damansara Heights when I was not there. Abdul Razak Baginda called me on my handphone to inform me of this so I rushed back to his house. As I arrived, I noticed Aminah outside the front gates shouting “Razak, bastard, come out from the house”. I tried to calm her down but couldn’t so I called the police who arrived in 2 patrol cars. I explained the situation to the police, who took her away to the Brickfields police station.
21. I followed the patrol cars to Brickfields police station in a taxi. I called Abdul Razak Baginda and his lawyer Dirren to lodge a police report but they refused.
22. When I was at the Brickfields police station, Aminah’s own Private Investigator, one Mr. Ang arrived and we had a discussion. I was told to deliver a demand to Abdul Razak Baginda for USD$500,000.00 and 3 tickets to Mongolia, apparently as commission owed to Aminah from a deal in Paris.
23. As Aminah had calmed down at this stage, a policewoman at the Brickfields police station advised me to leave and settle the matter amicably.
24. I duly informed Abdul Razak Baginda of the demands Aminah had made and told him I was disappointed that no one wanted to back me up in lodging a police report. We had a long discussion about the situation when I expressed a desire to pull out of this assignment.
25. During this discussion and in an attempt to persuade me to continue my employment with him, Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that :-
  • He had been introduced to Aminah by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at a diamond exhibition in Singapore.
  • Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak informed Abdul Razak Baginda that he had a sexual relationship with Aminah and that she was susceptible to anal intercourse.
  • Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wanted Abdul Razak Baginda to look after Aminah as he did not want her to harass him since he was now the Deputy Prime Minister.
  • Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Abdul Razak Baginda and Aminah had all been together at a dinner in Paris.
  • Aminah wanted money from him as she felt she was entitled to a USD$500,000.00 commission on a submarine deal she assisted with in Paris.
26. On the 19.10.2006, I arrived at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house in Damansara Heights to begin my night duty. I had parked my car outside as usual. I saw a yellow proton perdana taxi pass by  with 3 ladies inside, one of whom was Aminah. The taxi did a U-turn and stopped in front of the house where these ladies rolled down the window and wished me ‘Happy Deepavali’. The taxi then left.
27. About 20 minutes later the taxi returned with only Aminah in it. She got out of the taxi and walked towards me and started talking to me. I sent an SMS to Abdul Razak Baginda informing him “Aminah was here”. I received an SMS from Razak instructing me “To delay her until my man comes”.
28. Whist I was talking to Aminah, she informed me of the following :-
  • That she met Abdul Razak Baginda in Singapore with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
  • That she had also met Abdul Razak Baginda and Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at a dinner in Paris.
  • That she was promised a sum of USD$500,000.00 as commission for assisting in a submarine deal in Paris.
  • That Abdul Razak Baginda had bought her a house in Mongolia but her brother had refinanced it and she needed money to redeem it.
  • That her mother was ill and she needed money to pay for her treatment.
  • That Abdul Razak Baginda had married her in Korea as her mother is Korean whilst her father was a Mongolian/Chinese mix.
  • That if I wouldn’t allow her to see Abdul Razak Baginda, would I be able to arrange for her to see Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
29. After talking to Aminah for about 15 minutes, a red Proton aeroback arrived with a woman and two men. I now know the woman to be Lance Corporal Rohaniza and the men, Azilah Hadri and Sirul Azahar. They were all in plain clothes. Azilah walked towards me while the other two stayed in the car.
30. Azilah asked me whether the woman was Aminah and I said ‘Yes’. He then walked off and made a few calls on his handphone. After 10 minutes another vehicle, a blue Proton saga, driven by a Malay man, passed by slowly. The drivers window had been wound down and the driver was looking at us.
31. Azilah then informed me they would be taking Aminah away. I informed Aminah they were arresting her. The other two persons then got out of the red Proton and exchanged seats so that Lance Corporal Rohaniza and Aminah were in the back while the two men were in the front. They drove off and that is the last I ever saw of Aminah.
32. Abdul Razak Baginda was not at home when all this occurred.
33. After the 19.10.2006, I continued to work for Abdul Razak Baginda at his house in Damansara Heights from 7 pm to 8 am the next morning, as he had been receiving threatening text messages from a woman called ‘Amy’ who was apparently ‘Aminah’s’ cousin in Mongolia.
34. On the night of the 20.10.2006, both of Aminah’s girl friends turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house enquiring where Aminah was. I informed them she had been arrested the night before.
35. A couple of nights later, these two Mongolian girls, Mr. Ang and another Mongolian girl called ‘Amy’ turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house looking for Aminah as they appeared to be convinced she was being held in the house.
36. A commotion began so I called the police who arrived shortly thereafter in a patrol car. Another patrol car arrived a short while later in which was the investigating officer from the Dang Wangi Police Station who was in charge of the missing persons report lodged by one of the Mongolians girls, I believe was Amy.
37. I called Abdul Razak Baginda who was at home to inform him of the events taking place at his front gate. He then called DSP Musa Safri and called me back informing me that Musa Safri would be calling handphone and I was to pass the phone to the Inspector from Dang Wangi Police Station.
38. I then received a call on my handphone from Musa Safri and duly handed the phone to the Dang Wangi Inspector. The conversation lasted 3 – 4 minutes after which he told the girls to disperse and to go to see him the next day.
39. On or about the 24.10.2006, Abdul Razak Baginda instructed me to accompany him to the Brickfields police station as he had been advised to lodge a police report about the harassment he was receiving from these Mongolian girls.
40. Before this, Amy had sent me an SMS informing me she was going to Thailand to lodge a report with the Mongolian consulate there regarding Aminah’s disappearance. Apparently she had sent the same SMS to Abdul Razak Baginda. This is why he told me he had been advised to lodge a police report.
41. Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that DPS Musa Safri had introduced him to one DSP Idris, the head of the Criminal division, Brickfields police station, and that Idris had referred him to ASP Tonny.
42. When Abdul Razak Baginda had lodged his police report at Brickfields police station, in front of ASP Tonny, he was asked to make a statement but he refused as he said he was leaving for overseas. He did however promise to prepare a statement and hand ASP Tonny a thumb drive. I know that this was not done as ASP Tonny told me.
43. However ASP Tonny asked me the next day to provide my statement instead and so I did.
44. I stopped working for Abdul Razak Baginda on the 26.10.2006 as this was the day he left for Hong Kong on his own.
45. In mid November 2006, I received a phone call from ASP Tonny from the IPK Jalan Hang Tuah asking me to see him regarding Aminah’s case. When I arrived there I was immediately arrested under S.506 of the Penal Code for Criminal intimidation.
46. I was then placed in the lock up and remanded for 5 days. On the third day I was released on police bail.
47. At the end of November 2006, the D9 department of the IPK sent a detective to my house to escort me to the IPK Jalan Hang Tuah. When I arrived, I was told I was being arrested under S.302 of the Penal Code for murder. I was put in the lock up and remanded for 7 days.
48. I was transported to Bukit Aman where I was interrogated and questioned about an SMS I had received from Abdul Razak Baginda on the 19.10.2006 which read “delay her until my man arrives”. They had apparently retrieved this message from Abdul Razak Baginda’s handphone.
49. They then proceeded to record my statement from 8.30 am to 6 pm. everyday for 7 consecutive days. I told them all I knew including everything Abdul Razak Baginda and Aminah had told me about their relationships with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak but when I came to sign my statement, these details had been left out.
50. I have given evidence in the trial of Azilah, Sirul and Abdul Razak Baginda at the Shah Alam High Court. The prosecutor did not ask me any questions in respect of Aminah’s relationship with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak or of the phone call I received from DSP Musa Safri, whom I believe was the ADC for Datuk Seri Najib Razak and/or his wife.
51. On the day Abdul Razak Baginda was arrested, I was with him at his lawyers office at 6.30 am Abdul Razak Baginda informed us that he had sent Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak an SMS the evening before as he refused to believe he was to be arrested, but had not received a response.
52. Shortly thereafter, at about 7.30 am, Abdul Razak Baginda received an SMS from Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and showed, this message to both myself and his lawyer. This message read as follows :- “ I am seeing IGP at 11.00 a.m. today …… matter will be solved … be cool”.
53. I have been made to understand that Abdul Razak Baginda was arrested the same morning at his office in the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang.
54. The purpose of this Statutory declaration is to :-
  • State my disappointment at the standard of investigations conducted by the authorities into the circumstances surrounding the murder of Altantuya Shaaribuu.
  • Bring to the notice of the relevant authorities the strong possibility that there are individuals other than the 3 accused who must have played a role in the murder of Altantuya Shaaribuu.
  • Persuade the relevant authorities to reopen their investigations into this case immediately so that any fresh evidence may be presented to the Court prior to submissions at the end of the prosecutions case.
  • Emphasize the fact that having been a member of the Royal Malaysian Police Force for 17 years I am absolutely certain no police officer would shoot someone in the head and blow up their body without receiving specific instructions from their superiors first.
  • Express my concern that should the defence not be called in the said murder trial, the accused, Azilah and Sirul will not have to swear on oath and testify as to the instructions they received and from whom they were given.
55. And I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing the same be true and by virtue of the provisions of the Statutory Declaration Act 1960.
