Meanwhile Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim can get away with despicable lies told!



I am reproducing the whole article that appeared in Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim's blogsite that he copied in toto from a Hongkong-based online portal Asia Sentinel. The article is full of accusations and innuendo and insinuations that if Asia Sentinel were to do it about Singapore it would most definitely be sued!! For some strange reasons Asia Sentinel could get away with it and this one man who is so hung up about wanting to be the Prime Minister of Malaysia has no qualm in helping the enemies of this country (one is Asia Sentinel) to destroy this country ...... and yet he still could get away with it and yet with all the machinery at its disposal the government is still coy in facing this traitor who appears not to be afraid or to respect the government of the day. If Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim CAN get away with telling lies and the government is still coy about taking real action against him or to sue Asia Sentinel, well may be I should have said enough. Whether I reprint or to respond or not Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim's blogsite there will be still many who will read it, the question is, what is the government going to do about it! The way I see it Asia Sentinel is libel in accusing Malaysia and so is Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim for reprinting the libelous article in his blogsite.

Getting Away with Murder in Malaysia

From Asia Sentinal

By Our Correspondent Monday, 26 October 2009

It’s best to be connected to the ruling national coalition

On July 16, according to the testimony of a Thai pathologist, Teoh Beng Hock, a 29-year-old aide to an opposition politician, was probably beaten during a marathon questioning session, sodomized, strangled unconscious, dragged to a window of the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission in Kuala Lumpur and thrown to his death.

The country’s law enforcement establishment maintains that Teoh committed suicide by leaping from the MACC building after the inquiry was concluded into irregularities in his boss’s accounts. But it is far from the first “suicide” in custody and what happened to Teoh happens all too frequently when the luckless collide with the powerful in Malaysia. His real killers are unlikely ever to be identified. As many as 350 people have died in custody since 1990. The privileged are rarely brought to trial.

The most infamous recent case before Teoh’s is that of Altantuya Shaariibuu, a 28 year-old Mongolian translator who was murdered in 2006 by two bodyguards of then-Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak. Altantuya had been jilted by Najib’s best friend, Abdul Razak Baginda, and was demanding money from him.

Although numerous witnesses and evidence connected Najib to the affair, he was never questioned or put on the witness stand, nor was his chief of staff, Musa Safri, who Baginda said in a cautioned statement he approached about getting Altantuya from ceasing her harrassment. His two bodyguards were convicted of the murder although one, in his confession, said the two men were to be paid RM100,000 to kill her. The court never asked who would pay the money. The confession wasn’t allowed in court. Baginda was acquitted without having to put on a defense and promptly left the country and Najib was eventually named Prime Minister.

Such questionable cases go back to at least the early 1980s when Sultan Mahmud Iskandar of Johor was dubbed the “killer king” by the British tabloids after he shot a trespasser to death on his property. He also reportedly assaulted and killed a golf caddy who was said to have laughed when the sultan missed a golf stroke and he maimed the caddy’s brother. He later was alleged to have assaulted and injured a hockey coach, kicking off a constitutional crisis that led to former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad’s removal of legal immunity from prosecution for all of Malaysia’s nine sultans, although Iskandar was never either arrested or jailed.

There are plenty more. In 1988 an attractive young woman named Mustakizah Jaafar, who owned a video rental business in Malacca, was found hacked to death by unknown assailants. Mustakizah reportedly was pregnant at the time of her death. She was believed to be having an affair with Megat Junid Megat Ayob, the onetime UMNO deputy home affairs minister, who died in January 2008 of cancer.

No one was ever charged with Mutakizah’s murder. The widespread gossip about Megat Junid’s connection with Mustakizah didn’t do his political career any harm. He was ultimately named Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister in 1997 although he lost his parliamentary seat two years later and retired from politics.

In 2002 the decomposed body of Haslezah Ishak, the attractive young second wife of Raja Jaafar Raja Muda Musa, second in line to the throne of Perak, whom he had met in a karaoke lounge, was found under a bridge, clad in a bra and jeans. Four men, including a palace aide, a bomoh or witch doctor, a fisherman and a carpenter were arrested and jailed for the murder. No one was ever arrested or questioned for hiring them to kill her although suspicion fell on the prince’s wife, Rajah Mahani, who had been publicly consulting witch doctors over her suspicion that Haslezah had put a spell on her husband.

In 2003, another attractive young woman, Norita Shamsudin, was found murdered in an apartment in a Kuala Lumpur suburb. A night club guest relations officer, Norita had been rumored to be having an affair with Shahidan Kassim, then chief minister of the state of Perlis. Although another individual was arrested and charged with the murder, he was later declared not guilty and no one else was ever charged. According to local news reports, the inspector general of police, Mohd Bakri Omar, classified the case under Malaysia’s Official Secrets Act and no details were ever released.

Earlier this year, authorities finally completed an inquest into the 2007 death of beautiful ethnic Indian actress Sujatha Krishnan, who also worked part-time as a secretary to S.Vell Paari, chief executive officer of Maika Holdings and the son of S. Samy Vellu, the head of the Malaysian Indian Congress, a component of the ruling national coalition. Sujatha died in a hospital in a Kuala Lumpur suburb of Klang three days after she had been rushed in for treatment. Her body was cremated almost immediately after her death. The coroner ruled she had died after poisoning herself by drinking poison. The family vainly requested an investigation into her death.

For those at the bottom end of Malaysia’s power spectrum, life can be considerably tougher if suspicion falls on them. According to the reform organization Malaysians Against Death Penalty and Torture (MADPET), a distressing number of suspects have died in custody. “Relying merely on data provided by the government, it has been disclosed that there have been 150 deaths from 1990 until 2004 (10.7 per year), 108 deaths between 2000 and 2006 (18 per year), and, 85 deaths between 2003 and 2007 (21.25 per year),” the organization said.

According to a 2003 report by the Asian Human Rights Commission – the same year Norita was killed ? statistics released in Malaysia’s parliament in October of that year by the Home Ministry, showed 23 people died in police custody between 2002 and July 2003. Of those, 16 died in 2002 although according to the report, other figures indicated that 18 had died in custody in the first nine months of 2002 alone. Parliament was told in October 2002 that a total of 34 persons had died in police custody since 2000 ? six in 2000, 10 in 2001 and 18 from January to September 2002.

According to the report, then-Deputy Home Minister Chor Chee Heung denied that methods of torture used to obtain information from suspects led to their deaths. He claimed that the majority of deaths were the result of attempts to escape from police custody. Typical seemed to be the case of Hasrizal Hamzah, who had been detained on suspicion of murder in October of 2003. According to a senior assistant police commissioner, Harizal confessed to the murder and then, as he was being moved to a new location, supposedly shoved the accompanying policeman aside despite being handcuffed, and leapt over a balcony to his death.

Earlier this year, the Indian community was enraged by the death of a 22-year-old named Kugan Ananthan who was detained on Jan. 15 on suspicion of stealing luxury cars. He reportedly collapsed during questioning and died on Jan. 20 from “acute pulmonary edema,” or fluid in the lungs. However, after his body was released to his family, an autopsy found that he had suffered from internal bleeding in his heart, left lung, spleen, kidneys and scalp area. The soles of his feet had been beaten and the back of his neck and spine area were bleeding. His back was covered with contusions, beating marks and bruises. He had sustained more than 10 serious burn marks, probably as the result of being burned by a heated v-shaped iron bar. He had also been starved during the entire time he was being tortured, allegedly by as many as seven police officers, his family charged.

“There is a clear lack of supervision, medical care and concern for the general well-being and rights of suspects while under police remand,” the Human Rights Commission said in its 2003 report. It does not appear that anything has changed. The odds are that the cases involving both Kugan and Teoh will end up the same way scores of others have.

A breath of fresh air in Najib and a serious and nagging problems need to be resolved.

Remember Nirmala abuser/employer Yim Pek Ha, smiling away without a sign of remorse?


Remember Nirmala Bonat! She just wants to make a life for herself but she was abused!



I am referring to the tsunami of good reform and goodwill that came about when Dato' Sri Najib Tun Razak took over as the country's sixth prime minister.
His speech at the recent Umno assembly saw many old timers shedding tears of joy and the young ones speechless listening in awe a man who should have been our fifth prime minister instead of the dud Abdullah Badawi.
"When Dollah gave his presidential speech when he was the PM people just fall asleep and walked away uninspired. Can be said as (Tun) Mahathir Mohamad's biggest miscalculation in taking him as his successor. Hopefully, and I am sure, Najib will repair the damaged done by Dollah. Under Dollah five states went to the opposition, and under Dollah people still trying to understand what is Islam Hadhari!," said a veteran politician from Malacca.
This politician who is known for his dexterity with "pantun" said he was sure if Najib had been the prime minister instead of Dollah then things in the country would have had a different outcome.
On other subject, yes, it is true Indonesia and Malaysia is inseparable as a nation and this was shown by the fact that Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will make Malaysia as his first country of visit after his re-election.
On a more emotional ties, another sad episode of an Indonesian maid being abused in Klang that was reported by the New Straits Times today, October 21st.
An Indonesian maid was found chained, badly injured and starved by her employers. This happened when a worker followed a stench leading to a room and the worker decided to break open the door and found the maid in a deplorable condition beyond imagination.
How can this be allowed to happen? After another Indonesian maid, remember Nirmala Bonat, was scarred with hot iron and abused and beaten so badly that one would have thought that stiff sentence that was imposed on her employer would have act as a stiff deterrent to future abuses? Apparently this is not the case.
Now that I know another Indonesian maid was being severely abused I would like the law be very very strict in sentencing these animals when it comes to court and that the case be placed on the front page of our major newspapers to let people know that we are taking this matter of maid abuses very seriously.
If I am an Indonesian now reading about another abuse of my compatriot by bad Malaysian employers I would also very, very angry.
For this new case of maid abuse in Klang I implore the authority to impose a deterrent, a very serious one that will make prospective maid abusers to think twice before chaining, starving and beating another fellow human being.

Marching On To 1World!

Tell Me More: Najib (third from right) having a discussion with delegates during a reception at Unesco headquarters in Paris.



The Star came out with a really feel good column with what been written about may have a potential to be really, really good for us human kind, whose main pre-occupation it appears is to kill and maim, and steal what belongs to others. The story by the Sunday Star, or rather a column by that newspaper should have been given the prominence, or at least a blurb on the front page, but nevertheless somebody found it on Page F29 and alerted me (what a maze with that thick newspaper, with their pagination system and all). Below is the reproduction of that column, reprinted with permission:

Marching on to 1world
EUROFILE
By CHOI TUCK WO

Over 200 delegates from the world’s six regions attending Unesco’s general conference in Paris got a buzz on the 1Malaysian concept.

FROM 1Malaysia to 1Region and ultimately 1World. Powerful words, glittering promises. And it’s a foretaste of the epic struggle ahead.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s attempt to take the country’s national philosophy to the world stage may, on the surface, seem to be a tall order.
Tell us more: Najib (third from right) having a discussion with delegates during a reception at Unesco headquarters in Paris.

Yet it was no talk shop, for none of what he expounded at Unesco’s general conference in Paris earlier last week is rocket science. It’s about getting the basics right.

The keynote address – the first by a Malay­sian premier to the august body in the country’s 51-year history with Unesco – was an example of a first-rate speech at its best; serious points, seriously argued, with grown-up courtesy and good humour.

Indeed, Najib’s plain speaking and blunt integrity struck a chord with the over 200 delegates from the world’s six regions – Europe, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Arab States.

The Prime Minister’s speech did, however, have one simple, if implicit message – the importance of inter-cultural dialogue among the world’s communities.

And it came through absolutely clear, not wrapped in economic or diplomatic jargon.

As the premier so rightly put it: “Truly, for Malaysians, inter-cultural dialogue is an everyday fact of life.”

The question is – and it’s a big one – can Malaysians rise to the challenge?

Sadly, too often consumed with hatred, extremism, fatalism and fanaticism, some people appear to be living in a different planet, frozen in time while the rest of the world races ahead.

Cultural diversity

Malaysia’s Permanent Representative to Unesco Datuk Kenneth Luis said the Prime Minister’s speech was well received by the delegates, especially his focus on education and the 1World concept.

He said one of the stumbling blocks faced by the world body was the lack of teachers, particularly in sub-continent Africa which had a shortage of 18 million teachers.

“The trust fund to train teachers is crucial to Unesco’s efforts to achieve education for all by 2015,” he noted.

Kenneth said the delegates were also impressed with the 1Malaysia concept starting from the family and extending to the community.

“If we are one as a family, we would be one as a community and one as a nation. That’s what our premier is encouraging as a region, and then as a world,” he added.

Unesco’s first female incoming director-general, Bulgaria’s Elrina Bokova, hailed Malaysia’s concept of mutual respect and tolerance as the basis for global peace and harmony.

She expressed full support for the Prime Minister’s emphasis on cultural diversity and integration, and not assimilation.

“Malaysia is an interesting example of multi-culturalism, tolerance and diversity in one nation,” she added.

Bokova also commended Malaysia for demonstrating solidarity with the most vulnerable, the Africans and the small islands through the setting up of the trust fund.

Full acceptance

Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan lauded Malaysia for utilising its multi-cultural communities as a source of development and not for conflict.

“Personally, I support your 1Malaysia slogan. I think other countries can study your experience in that area,” he added.

Philippines Ambassador to France, Monaco and Portugal, Rora Navarro-Tolentino, described Najib’s call as timely, saying the world was a global village where conflict in one region would affect another.

She believed that if the global community were to put their resources and efforts together, they would be stronger and more effective in addressing the challenges.

She cited Asean as an example, when the voices of the 10 member countries would be heard more and their action more impactful because “we have strength in numbers”.

“I believe this 1World vision can be realised one day if we’re united and strive for it in a determined way,” she said, adding, however, that it could not be achieved overnight.

Uganda’s Ambassador to France, Portugal, Spain and Unesco Elizabeth Paula Napeyok echoed similar views, saying the concept was about bringing people together with tolerance, love and peace.

She supported the Prime Minister’s call for trust, mutual respect and full acceptance, not assimilation.

“We must not assimilate people; we should accept them as they are, accept them in their circumstances, because who are we to change people – we’re not supposed to judge.”

She said that like multi-racial Malaysia, Uganda respected diversity as it had four major regions whose people spoke 44 languages.

“And if we don’t respect each other – what we do, how we behave, how we talk, cook or dress – I’m sure there’ll be disharmony,” she added.

It's theatrics and a convincing Hollywood make-up!

Hollywood trade secret!


Bad make-up!

Good make-up!

Good makeup

Scary and good Hollywood make-up!


Decide for yourself!


From Rockybru: "Election violence, or just poor acting/make-up? In silat, the Malay ancient and mystical martial arts, to master the art of kebal (invincibility) is the exponent's ultimate goal. The Unspinners, who are in Bagan Pinang covering the otherwise dull by-election, think this chap who claimed to have been slashed by a parang panjang is kebal."


To Rockybru's question I firmly believe it was bad acting and make-up!
I once had a chance to witness a fake "snuff movie" for research. Snuff is a type of a violent movie that sick people like to watch. But the movie that I watched was a fake snuff but to the uninitiated it was real enough for them to throw up or to get out of the room. I was with a group out to that dispel the movie as being fake but it was gory for sure. The movie also showed how it was made, watching the actors and actresses and especially the director laughing their way to the bank with Japanese money. BTW snuff movies found their way to Japan, the sickest race I have ever known after knowing a bit more facts about this film genre.
Bottom line is it was all god make-up and ketchup and molasses for blood and puss,
There was this picture of a Pas supporter in Bagan Pinang allegedly being beaten up but I suspect it was all theatrics.
Remember Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim's black eye? Well, many also believe it was just Hollywood make-up and many simple rural Malays believe it was real.

F*ck politics and f*ck being a racist! Let's talk about self-preservation and staying healthy and to be alive!

Public Announcement for people who are unclear with the concept of hygiene and avoiding plague! The notice was sent to me by someone and it makes sense, in so far as staying alive is concern::


The message below is intended for Canadians, I was told, but death, miserable death that is, can happen to anyone. Such death does not apply only to Canadians, others, like us Malaysians, can also suffer from the plague called Swine flu (Demam BABI) therefore Malaysians must also read the notice sent to all Canadians in this country and hope it is also useful to us who like to openly sneeze in public and and not cover their ugly faces and not to wash their hands after they pee. I have also seen crude Malaysians spitting in the public basins in resaturants without compunction, to this I say stop it in the name of self-preservation. No comments on my "crude" headlines please, since I believe among the three races they are all guilty doing what I accused them with. Lets face it, Malaysians in general are lacking in basic rudimentry personal hygiene! So there I have said it....now morons read the notice below and shut up and BE A MAN!

H1N1 Message

High Commission of Canada, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

01 October 2009

This message provides Canadians (Malaysians) information regarding human cases of the 2009 H1N1 Flu Virus. The flu virus has currently spread to 198 countries in the world, and continues to spread. While in many cases the effects are relatively mild, it is still to be taken seriously. As of September 22, 2009 about 394,000 confirmed cases and 4,300 deaths have been recorded globally. Reliable statistics are no longer being maintained, due to the widespread nature of the virus. The total number of cases and deaths is probably far higher than official reports.

The High Commission encourages all Canadians(Malaysians) to be vigilant with regards to their personal hygiene and sanitation practices. You should wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds to eradicate viruses and bacteria. When soap and water are not available, apply a hand sanitizer with a minimum of 60 percent alcohol content. Remember to practice good respiratory etiquette by coughing and sneezing into your sleeve or a tissue and get vaccinated against flu, as recommended by your health care provider. Also, ask your employer, organization or school about pandemic contingency plans, and make a pandemic contingency plan for your family.

Any questions or concerns about influenza or other illnesses should be directed to a medical professional. Although the High Commission cannot provide medical advice or provide medical services, including antivirals and vaccine, to the public, a list of hospitals may be obtained from the internet or from hospitals located nearest to your place of residence.

At this time, the High Commission advises Canadians to review the guidance provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada (www.fightflu.ca) and the World Health Organization (www.who.org). Canadians planning on travelling outside their country of current residence should determine if any form of entry screening is in effect in the destination country. You should not travel if you are displaying flu-like symptoms. Consult our travel reports and warnings page at Error! Hyperlink reference not valid.

Canadian citizens or their families should inform the High Commission if they have been detained or quarantined by local authorities. Canadian citizens should be aware that if they have been detained or quarantined in accordance with local public health regulations, the High Commission is limited in its ability to intervene.

Canadians living or traveling abroad are encouraged to register with the High Commission, through the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade website (www.voyage.gc.ca). Canadians without Internet access may register directly with the nearest High Commission of Canada. By registering, Canadian citizens make it easier for the High Commission to contact them in the event of an emergency.

Malaysian-Saudi economic ties enter new era

Saudi's relationship with Malaysia has always been good!


In a world of an economic doldrums and uncertainty, below is a piece of a good news for Malaysia and I took the liberty of re-printing the news item from NST Business Times:


AT A time when the global economy was under tremendous pressure, securing a commitment of US$1.5 billion investment from anywhere would be an achievement. Coming from Saudi Arabia, it was significant as it marks a new milestone in economic cooperation between the two countries and considering other rivals were also jostling to attract Saudi money to their shores, it was a coup that Malaysia was the chosen one. Together with Malaysia’s commitment of US$1 billion, both the country’s 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) and Saudi Arabia’s PetroSaudi International on Wednesday surprised the market when they jointly announced formation of a US$2.5 billion (RM8.71 billion) investment fund to invest in high impact projects in Malaysia and abroad. Wednesday’s announcement was not of a mere memorandum of understanding (MOU). Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the operating joint-venture company managing the fund would start work immediately. Najib also said that he was informed by Bank Negara Malaysia officials that the money from Saudi is already here in Malaysia, while on its part, Malaysia will use money from a sovereign bond issued recently to subscribe for its portion of the joint-venture. Also interesting is that the investment fund size is not limited to the US$2.5 billion. Najib said it will be increased later. Even at the initial RM8.7 billion, the investment fund can be considered sizeable. That was about the amount spent to build the entire North-South Expressway, a project which dumped all political rhetorics that went against it and in the end was recognised not only as an economic catalyst during the last downturn, but also as an important testimonial for all the contractors involved in it. Many of them are today building roads, bridges, airports and buildings overseas. Amid the current weak financing and investment environment, the RM8.7 billion Saudi Arabia-Malaysia joint-investment fund could not have come at a better time. Malaysia has somewhat struggled to attract foreign invesments this year. But perhaps, the most significant part of Wednesday’s announcement was on where the fund would channel its money to. Najib spoke of high impact projects in the petroleum, renewable energy and real estate sectors — a clear indication that the investments being aimed for will be long term in nature. Which makes it a lot more meaningful than equity investments from overseas that can come and go with just the touch of a computer keyboard. On why PetroSaudi chose Malaysia, surely it knows best. Arabs are historically competent investors and PetroSaudi would have done its homework before signing on the dotted line.
