Hasan's flimsy excuse for hiding Bank Negara's letter from PAC

Image result for PAC Hasan

YOURSAY | ‘Hasan should go for failing and allegedly cheating the Parliament.’
FellowMalaysian: Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua has provided an emphatic account of why Hasan Arifin has displayed gross negligence and failure in carrying out his duties and responsibilities as the Public Accounts Committee chairperson.
Hasan's insidious action and conduct in wilfully keeping the Bank Negara's April 6 letter to PAC, which disclosed their findings on the ownership status of Good Star Limited, away from the committee members is totally unacceptable.
Hasan has also resorted to giving various wimpy reasons for his actions. He claimed the deletion of statements made in the PAC report done by him unilaterally was of little significance or consequence, but Pua has subsequently debunked his claim and proved him wrong.
Vijay47: Hasan, as you may have been distracted by recent developments in your troubled PAC, it is possible that you were unable to keep up with the latest international news. Let me bring you up to speed.
An officer in the Singapore branch of BSI committed certain illegal actions for which the Singapore authorities shut down the branch. Far away in Switzerland, the BSI chairperson resigned over these crimes - crimes, I may add, for which he was not personally responsible.
Why did he do this, something which is totally inexplicable in Malaysia? For two related reasons - responsibility and accountability.
I grant that you may be unfamiliar with such attributes, but it arises out of honour, that the head accepts blame for what is done by subordinates under his watch.
In your case, you personally manipulated and concealed crucial evidence, acts for which in any other country you would be drawn and quartered. Do you have the honour to resign? Your response may be the basis of how history will judge you.
Negarawan: The Singapore prosecutors have declared that the 1MDB money laundering probe is the largest ever in city state. How is it that in Malaysia, all the probes under the PAC, the special task force, AGC, MACC, BNM and PDRM have been closed?
This glaring disparity between Singapore and Malaysia clearly shows that the Umno government has lost all its integrity and credibility. It is of no surprise that the government is internationally regarded as a kleptocracy.
Malaysia cannot afford to have alleged thieves, criminals and incorrigible liars at the helm of the government.
Pemerhati: What Pua says makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately, no action can be taken against anyone who carries out allegedly crooked activities on behalf of PM Najib Razak, who has dictatorial powers.
The person in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), who was allegedly responsible for the death of Teoh Beng Hock, did not get punished but instead got promoted.
It is likely that Hasan will also be handsomely rewarded by Najib with some ‘American pies’ and/or in some other way for his despicable behaviour, sometime in the future.
Flyingeagle: Yes, PAC members must make the collective move to demand their chief to resign with immediate effect.
In addition, DAP leader Lim Kit Siang should refer Hasan to the disciplinary committee for further actions. Malaysians do not need this type of lawmaker.
Rupert16: Najib is quick off the mark in going after the whistleblower instead of ordering an investigation on the content of the letter revealed by The Wall Street Journal.
It is blatantly obvious that he is trying to cover the truth again for he knows that the truth may implicate him. So much for his ‘nothing to hide’ boast.
Anonymous 2336891439170985: From day one, we already knew what Hasan was capable of or rather incapable of. Who planted him there? Didn't he make it clear that he was only a 'cari makan' fellow.
Versey: If Hasan knows what is accountability, responsibility and honour means, he would not have told the journalists that he too needs to ‘cari makan’.
On the other hand, isn't it precisely that it is this kind of knows-no-shame character that he was selected to this post to assist in the cover-up operation?
Most likely, he worries not if he would be legally charged for obstruction of justice and knows that the most Malaysians can do is to clench their jaws and grind their teeth with fuming rage, hence he did what he has done.
Unafraid: It is simply shocking that such unlawful practices like unilaterally tampering with official documents by the PAC chairperson can be allowed to go unpunished. Tell me, in which civilised law-abiding nation can this happen?
Truly we are degenerating into a lawless country where anything goes as long as it is sanctioned by the PM and his allegedly crooked cohorts. What is equally damning is the silence of the rest of the rest of the cabinet, the anti-corruption agencies and the police.
Are there not any righteous men left in the government? We are utterly ashamed of our government.
Headhunter: It goes to show that only dubious characters are appointed to whitewash all the dirty deeds committed by those responsible for the colossal loss suffered by the country. They are the real traitors who subject the country to ruins.
There is very little public trust now in anyone appointed by the PM to follow up on the case. Nothing short of a royal commission by selected independent members will be acceptable by the rakyat.

Mosquitobrain: Not only Hasan should go for failing and allegedly cheating the Parliament, Najib himself should lead by example.-Mkini

Aulong state rep withdraws suits against Perak speaker

Aulong state assemblyperson Leow Thye Yih today withdrew his suit filed against Perak state legislative assembly speaker SK Devamany and the Perak state government.
The withdrawal of the suit filed on April 29 was made before Ipoh High Court senior assistant registrar Noor Azreen Liana Mohd Darus.
Counsel Leong Cheok Keng, who is also Malim Nawar state assemblyperson, when met by reporters, said the decision was made after studying a report of the Perak state assembly rights and freedom committee.
"He (Leow) had been advised that the case would become academic. The subject matter is being paid in May and April. The committee report clearly stated that deduction must be in April and no other months.“Furthermore, we feel safe as Leow's salary was not deducted in May. As such, subject matter became academic and we applied to withdraw the case with the privilege to file again without the need for any order or cost," he said.

Leow in filing the suit through Messrs Leong & Tan, among others, sought for a declaration that his salary suspension including allowance and claims from April 1 to 30 was not according to the provision of the Perak state constitution.
He also applied for a declaration that he was entitled to retirement and other allowances and/or benefits provided to him under Article XXXVID of the state constitution.
Leow also demanded cost and other relief deemed fit and suitable by the court.
On April 7, Devamany announced the suspension of Leow under the Assembly Standing Orders after Leow had allegedly made malicious accusations against a state assemblyperson in the previous sitting.

Breaking News : Rumour Of Cabinet Reshuffle Before Puasa, Its Mamak Power Again.

Image result for najib, cabinet reshuffle

I just got this fresh from the kedai kopi. There is a strong rumour of a Cabinet reshuffle before puasa. This is just a rumour ok. There is no OSA over rumours. 

Talk is the Tabung Haji Chairman will be given a Cabinet appointment. Dont know which Ministry. Maybe Ministry of Foreign Hotel Acquisitions ?

Kak Ijat will get back her old job as Minister of Women's Affairs.

The incumbent lady in Women's Affairs will be moved to Commodities or something.

The incumbent in Commodities will be moved to Pastries or something.

The Cabinet Reshuffle will most likely take place before puasa which begins on the 6th of June. This is what I was told. Lets see what happens.

If true, this is the rise of Mamak Power in the Cabinet again !

Dont mess with the mamaks because they can really mess things up.

The mamak who has been messing things up in the country for the past 15 years and more is still in the system, still messing things up.

My comments : Old habits never die. Once main liwat, selalu main liwat. Liwat dulu, sekarang dan selamanya.

Before this Khalid the MB was getting too popular. So the Brader icked him out. 
To be replaced by Azmin. Now the knives are out to get Azmin.   

I might as well share with you folks - there is some 'movement' from outside the PKR and Pakatan to make Mohd Azmin Ali the next Prime Minister.  I am not kidding. I have spoken to people in the know about this. 

But only in the event of Super Moron surviving till GE14. (Tapi kalau banyak sangat 'gambar' dan 'video' susah lah bro. You are not Anwar.  Neither are you Mat Spenda with PAS to cuci your dosa. So keep it in the pants.)

Post GE14  it is not likely that the BN will succeed.  At the very best they will have a very weak coalition.  Imagine MCA with zero seats, MIC with zero seats and Gerakan with zero seats and UMNO with fewer seats.

It will be DAP, PKR, UMNO, PAS, Amanah in the Peninsula versus the Sarawak and Sabah parties.   In such event Mohd Azmin Ali cold be the Chosen One. 

The Brother in the Sg Buloh Resort is well aware of this. His wife is not a politician nor a leader.  Neither is the daugher.  Their days are over.  It never began in the first place.

But of course they refuse to let go. So the mutiny and the conspiracies against Mohd Azmin Ali.  Or anyone who begins to outshine them. Its a family business. In a family business, the business stays in the family. Everyone else just works for the family.

Sad to say it is easier to hatch a conspiracy when you have evidence in your hands. That too has been their style.

Ada video China Doll tak? Dulu ada. Kenapa dulu tak ada aduan polis atau aduan MACC? 

Reject hudud, voters in by-elections urged

COMMENT Many - I hope, most - Malaysians will welcome the news that Parti Amanah Negara will contest the two by-elections in Perak and Selangor soon.
It is good news because it provides Malaysians - especially Muslims - an option to the hard-line, intolerant and increasingly extremist Islam propagated by both PAS and Umno.
Today we have three Islamic parties in the country. One is PAS. After the untimely demise of Nik Aziz Nik Mat, PAS has been taken over by Hadi Awang and his hard-liners who want an Islamic state without taking into account the multiracial and multi religious composition of Malaysia.
The second party is Umno which has come under the influence of extremist Middle East elements who have infiltrated into the corridors of power in the civil service, educational system, political sector and other key areas of society.
The third Islamic party is Amanah which is a moderate party which holds no power but is trying hard to make inroads into the Malay community traditionally aligned to PAS and Umno. Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin, a member of the central committee of Amanah, has confirmed to me that his party will oppose the Syariah Act Amendment Bill.   
Really only two Islamic parties
Although there are three Islamic parties contesting, actually in terms of ideology, there are only two Islamic parties in the country, not three.
PAS and Umno are really the two sides of the same coin. Increasingly they have the same agenda of ketuanan Islam and ketuanan Melayu.
Increasingly their hunger for power and dominance is fed by the dakwah missionary groups and ulama who work with the politicians to reinforce Islamic and Malay dominance.
The latest evidence that these two parties are conspiring to bring about an Islamic state can be seen in the decision of Umno to expedite the tabling of PAS’s Hudud Bill. This is not an allegation made by the opposition parties.
It comes from Umno’s newspaper mouthpiece, Utusan Malaysia. The Umno-owned daily’s editors have said that the cooperation of the two parties demonstrates how both were willing to cast aside their ideological differences to strike consensus - in other words - to work together.
“Awang (a pseudonym for the editors) hopes that this Bill will bring significant meaning to the cooperation between PAS and BN, especially when facing issues of common interest. It also shows a political maturity that transcends ideological boundaries,” according to the editors.
Readers should note how Utusan writes about “BN’s cooperation” when in fact it is Umno alone in the Barisan which is in favour of this cooperation. All the other BN parties have rejected the proposed bill.
Talk about dishonesty and media spin - this is an example of how Utusan works to deceive the Malay readers.
Also according to Utusan, “PAS wants to prove its intention (to introduce hudud) is not just political talk.”
Confirmation of PAS-Umno cooperation also comes from PAS Youth leader Nik Abduh Nik Aziz, who thanked Umno for bringing the bill from the bottom of the parliamentary pile to the top.
Nik Abduh admitted that without cooperation from Umno, the Private Member’s Bill would not have been slated for debate.
He also said: “We will highlight this issue (hudud) in the by-elections.” According to him, voters in Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar would be given an “early explanation” on the issue.
Whipping and amputation in public
Voters in the by-elections and all Malaysians will be looking forward to hearing how PAS plans to carry out whipping sentences in public.
According to Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah in a recent Utusan interview, PAS has all the infrastructure necessary for the implementation of the Islamic penal code, such as methods on whipping and amputation, as well as the officials to carry out the punishments.
“We want to impose up to 40 and 100 strokes. The location is currently set in prison. But if we want to do it publicly, we can do that, too.”
For now, Kelantan can only legislate under Shariah law against alcohol consumption, extramarital sex that can be punished with 100 strokes of whipping, and false accusation of adultery.
But once the legislation is approved, we can expect punishments of stoning, amputating hands for theft, amputating hands and feet for robbery, and the death sentence for apostates to come into effect since Kelantan’s Shariah Criminal Code II Enactment 1993 (Amendment 2015) legislates against those three offences, as well as apostasy, theft and robbery.
Three months ago I wrote: “I am helping Amanah. I know from personal friendships that Amanah has very good people in it. They are not the extremist, close minded or hypocritical elements which have given Islam a bad name among non-Muslims. They are also - I hope that I am correct - not intent on pushing for a Wahhabi or Arabic model of development for Malaysia. This will be tantamount to putting us under a new form of colonialism.
“We have to give them a chance at bringing a clean, inclusive, open-minded and liberal Islam into the political system.”
Today, May 30, 2016, The Star carries comments from the leaders of MCA and MIC - Wee Ka Siong and Dr S Subramaniam. Both of them say they will quit their cabinet posts if PAS’ Private Member’s Bill is passed.
In the coming by-elections, everyone knows that PAS and Umno will try to kill off Amanah as Amanah is their main enemy and target.

Voters in the two constituencies - Malays and non-Malays - must rally behind Amanah to make sure that the party can stay alive. They must send a message to PAS and Umno that their brand of hard-line Islam is not acceptable to Malaysians as it will destroy our harmonious society.
We have enough hypocrisy, hatred and extremism already; not to mention too many Malaysians with amputated limbs.
Let us not inflict on our country a punishment system that is primitive, arbitrary, out of step with a modern world and more in tune with the societies run by the Taliban and Islamic State (IS).

Calm down, Malaysians urged amid hudud storm

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said had tabled a motion to expedite the tabling of the PAS president’s private member’s Bill in Parliament to amend the Shariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965.― Picture by Choo Choy May© Provided by Malay Mail Online Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said had tabled a motion to expedite the tabling of the PAS president’s private member’s Bill in Parliament to amend the Shariah Courts…KUALA LUMPUR, May 30 — Malaysians should not allow themselves to be provoked by the outrage expressed over PAS’s so-called hudud Bill, Institute of Islamic Understanding Malaysia (IKIM) director-general Datin Dr Azizan Baharuddin said today.
She urged for calm, saying all parties should keep a cool head over the issue, which she acknowledged as volatile.
“Don’t escalate the explosive nature of this issue. Malaysians have to calm down. This is not the first time this situation has come about and maybe it will not be the last,” she told a press conference.
Instead of a knee-jerk reaction, she said a discussion on the matter should be held to help Malaysians understand the issue better.
“Islam looks at being fair. Not just for humans but for animals and plants as well. We should all sit and discuss.
“Those concerned should raise the issues and the parties involved should explain. It’s not one religion taking over the rest,” she stressed.
Azizan added that IKIM will study the Bill thoroughly before issuing any comment on it.
“We don’t want to condemn any party. Silence sometimes is golden. We are studying it. We want to make sure what we speak is based on facts,” she explained.
Last Thursday, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said tabled a motion to expedite the tabling of PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s private member’s Bill in Parliament to amend the Shariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965.
However, Hadi asked to defer the Bill to the next parliamentary meeting in October.
The Bill seeks to empower shariah courts to enforce punishments ― except for the death penalty ― provided in Shariah laws for Islamic offences listed under state jurisdiction in the Federal Constitution, without elaborating on the nature of the punishments.
Shariah court punishments are currently limited to jail terms not exceeding three years, or whipping of not more than six strokes, or fines of not more than RM5,000.
Umno president and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak later sought to allay concerns about Hadi’s Bill, saying that it was not meant to implement hudud law but merely to enable the Shariah courts to impose “a few more” strokes of caning from the current maximum of six.
Despite this, leaders from both the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) and opposition pact Pakata Harapan have issued statements expressing their opposition to the Bill.
The presidents of BN components MCA, MIC and Gerakan – Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam and Datuk Mah Siew Keong – even volunteered their resignations from the government should the Bill get Parliament’s approval.

Asia on verge of financial crisis, warns analyst

Asia is on the verge of a possible financial crisis, according to a political analyst, and Malaysia is the third most likely place for the crisis to start.
Rather than a repeat of the 1997 Asian financial crisis that started in Thailand however, the analyst Alastair Newton said the looming crisis would be driven by domestic debt instead of external debt.
This is not 1997 all over again. It is not about external debt.
“It is more like an Asian version of 2007 (subprime mortgage crisis in the US). It is about domestic debt and inflated asset prices caused by persistent ultra-low interest rates.
“This is causing major tensions in the financial system,” he told an audience in Petaling Jaya this morning.
The former British diplomat was speaking at the Global Economic Conference 2016, which is organised by Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia’s (ACCCIM) think-tank, the Socio-Economic Research Centre (SERC).
Topping the list of countries that are most, at least, likely to be hit by the crisis, Newton said, are China and Hong Kong, followed by Thailand, and then Malaysia.
He said these were based on the findings of his former colleague and economist Robert Subbaraman, whom he said he met last week and was on the verge of publishing a paper on the matter.
He said Subbaraman had studied at five different indicators of risk over the past four quarters for various countries in the Asia (excluding Japan) region.
However, Newton said Subbaraman had not looked into political risks that could morph into a financial crisis, and that the upcoming Hong Kong Legislative Council election in September could be a potential trigger.
“Both he and I believe that China will mow through (the crisis), but the downside risks of that are enormous. If China does crash, I don’t need tell to you how serious that is for all of us,” he said.
Various parties had previously raised alarm in the past over the debt situation in Malaysia, be it in the form of government debt (the bulk of which comes from domestic borrowing), household debt, and corporate debt.

According to an International Monetary Fund (IMF) report on May 4, Malaysia’s government debt stood at an estimated 57.4 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) last year, while the ratio for household debt was at 89.1 percent of GDP, and non-financial corporate sector at 96.0 percent of GDP.
The GDP last year was US$296 billion (RM1.22 trillion).
In particular, the IMF report identified Malaysia’s high household and corporate debt as vulnerabilities in Malaysia’s economy, but said this risk was also mitigated by several other factors such as low unemployment and strong financial institutions.
It suggested that policy changes are currently unnecessary, as existing policies seem to be adequate in stopping the growth of the debt.- Mkini
