GEORGE TOWN – The recent writ of summons issued by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to Penang BN chairman Teng Chang Yeo is to silence him on the Penang undersea tunnel project, Teng said today.
In a press conference held at state Gerakan headquarters today, the state Gerakan chairman had both his hands tied with cellophane tape, catching pressmen off guard.
The cellophane tape was to show the state’s action in shutting him up on the project.
However, Teng said he is unperturbed and will continue to question the project although being served on the legal action.
“I will continue to bring up this issue in the upcoming election campaign period,” he said.

SEVERAL top civil servants would get the chop should Pakatan Harapan capture Putrajaya, said Bersatu deputy president Mukhriz Mahathir.
He said PH promised to remove these government officers within 30 days in office, in response to a question at a dialogue session with NGOs in Senawang, Negri Sembilan, today.
“It’s okay to side the government of the day but they have gone out of their way to protect criminals. To us, Najib Razak is a criminal and it is unacceptable,” the former Kedah menteri besar said to a question from a participant on how PH would treat some top-ranking civil servants if it won the 14th general election.
Mukhriz did not say which top civil servants would be booted.
Mukhriz said all civil servants, regardless of their position, should work in the interest of the people.
“In ‘Buku Harapan’ (PH manifesto), the appointments of senior civil servants will have to be approved by Parliament, before they are submitted for the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s consent,” he said.
The PH manifesto states that the AG will be appointed by MPs to separate the AG’s Chambers from the Public Prosecutor’s Office, which will be independent. The AG will have ministerial status and act as legal advisor to the government.
On why PH did not have a younger leader, Mukhriz said Dr Mahathir Mohamad was the best person to go toe-to-toe with Prime Minister Najib Razak.
“The only one who can defeat Najib Razak and Rosmah Mansor and the whole BN machinery is Dr Mahathir.
“But he is always reminding us that he is already 92 and would not be  prime minister for too long, and that he means only to help with the transition, to convince the people,” he said, adding that the combined experience of young leaders like him, Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali and PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar could not match Dr Mahathir’s.
“Let Dr Mahathir lead PH, be our prime minister candidate with Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as deputy prime minister candidate.
“I believe the two of them can convince the people,” he said.


Controversial businessperson Jho Low seems to have become more important than Umno or the government’s accountability, said former information minister Rais Yatim.
“Looks like the issue of whether ‘can reprimand or not’ and ‘can investigate or not’ is still a polemic.
“If it is like this, Low appears to be more important than Umno or the government’s accountability.
“Likely this is what Jasa (Special Affairs Department) and its officers want,” Rais, who is now special adviser to the government, said in a posting on his Twitter account today.
He has recently been exchanging barbs with several Umno ministers as well as Jasa advisory panel member Tun Faisal Ismail Aziz over the 1MDB-linked Low (photo).
Rais had previously tweeted about the apparent support shown by certain quarters for Low, prompting Tun Faisal to say that “persons with ministerial rank” should use “proper channels” to air their grievances or quit their positions.
A special adviser to the government holds the same rank as a minister.
Rais replied that he would only quit his position if the prime minister asks him to do so and not upon the urging of a “stooge”.
Aside from Tun Faisal, Rais had also panned Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak earlier this month for defending Low and labelling reports about his ownership of mega-yacht Equanimity as “fake news”.
Tourism and Culture Minister Nazri Aziz also entered the fray when he criticised Rais and former minister Rafidah Aziz for speaking out on 1MDB, claiming they harboured a grudge against the current government for being dropped as ministers.
The US Department of Justice is seeking to seize US$1.7 billion in assets it claimed were acquired using the stolen money.
1MDB has denied any misappropriation of its money while the government and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak have consistently denied any wrongdoing.
1MDB transactions are being probed in at least six different countries, with individuals from several foreign banks already being convicted.

Shahrizat turns down Jamal’s offer to contest in Sg Besar

IPOH: Umno Wanita chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil today confirmed that she would not be contesting as a candidate for the Sungai Besar parliamentary constituency in the 14th general election (GE14).
She said the decision was made after seeing that there were local figures with potential to be candidates in the constituency and she was very grateful for the invitation made by Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Md Yunos.
“I have made the decision and talked to Datuk Seri Jamal and the committee at the division level, and they have accepted my decision not to contest for the Sungai Besar seat.
“As Wanita chief, I can’t be selfish.
” When I went to the ground, I saw many local candidates there who can represent the party,” she said after attending the launch of the Barisan Nasional Wanita and Puteri election machinery at the Perak menteri besar’s residence, here, today.
On Feb 10, local newspapers reported that Jamal, who is Sungai Besar Umno division chief, was willing to give way to Shahrizat to contest in the Sungai Besar parliamentary constituency if she was given the mandate to contest by Umno president Najib Razak.
Meanwhile, in GOPENG, Shahrizat, who is also Yayasan Kebajikan Negara (YKN) board of trustees chairperson, handed over contributions from the foundation, in the form of daily necessities and cash, to 20 underprivileged recipients in Simpang Pulai.
One of the recipients, security guard N Jothi, 46, said the assistance he received would be used in the best possible way to support the needs of the family.
The father of three was grateful for the aid as he never received any form of assistance, apart from the 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M).
“My salary as a security guard is barely enough. So I am grateful for any assistance to lessen my burden.”
Another recipient, senior citizen Fatimah Yeop Arif, 83, said she was deeply touched and grateful to receive the assistance from Shahrizat. -FMT

ABC song: Cops asked to probe Guan Eng for ‘exploiting kids’

NGOs lodge reports claiming song is insulting to federal government.
GEORGE TOWN: Three non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the Penang Front Party (PFP) have asked the police to investigate Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng for allegedly trying to exploit children for his political interests.
During a ceremony to offer free tuition classes at the Mutiara Idaman 2 flats yesterday, the chief minister is alleged to have brought along a compact disc and taught the children to sing the “ABC” song, which is said to contain lyrics insulting the Barisan Nasional government.
PFP chairman Patrick Ooi, Penang Surplus Welfare Association chairman Sophian Mohd Zain and 1Malaysia People’s Welfare Association president Mohd Ibrahim A Siahoo lodged police reports regarding the matter at the northeast district police headquarters (IPD) here today.
Speaking to reporters later, Ooi described Lim’s singing of the “ABC” song, the lyrics of which were seen as being sarcastic, with a group of children as insulting the Barisan Nasional government.
“Singing it is not wrong but the song is insulting to the federal government.
“Lim said that because of the GST (goods and services tax), all the people had to eat maggi mee and he is linking these issues to 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Berhad),” he said.
Meanwhile, Sophian said Lim was introducing an unhealthy culture in doing so because the programme involved children and he was exploiting children for political purposes. -FMT

Shafie denies Warisan greedy for seats in Sabah

The Parti Warisan Sabah president says it is Parti Cinta Sabah that wants all the Kadazandusun Murut seats.
Shafie Apdal greeting supporters during a party gathering in Sepanggar, Kota Kinabalu.
KOTA KINABALU: Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) president Shafie Apdal has accused fellow opposition party Parti Cinta Sabah (PCS) leaders of trying to monopolise Kadazadusun Murut (KDM) seats in the state.
Shafie was commenting on reports that PCS president Wilfred Bumburing had criticised Warisan for allegedly wanting to contest 42 out of 60 state seats in the coming election.
Bumburing was reported to have said Shafie had advised PCS to take only six state seats while Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) components could take the rest.
“What’s important is to topple BN and Umno so that the state government is administered by Sabahans and a local party,” Shafie told reporters after a gathering in Sepanggar near here today.
“That’s our priority. I’ve discussed this with him (Bumburing) but it’s not true that we will let him have only six seats. I don’t know where he got this idea.
“He told me he wanted more than 20 plus seats, especially the KDM seats, but how about Loretto (Padua Jr, Warisan’s secretary-general) and Peter (Anthony, Warisan’s vice-president).
“How about the KDM leaders in Warisan if Bumburing takes all the KDM seats?”
Shafie, who was formerly federal rural and regional development minister as well as Umno vice-president, however, said Bumburing should continue with the seat negotiations.
“We haven’t finalised the seats,” he said. “We’re still negotiating but I think he (Bumburing) is only proposing for marriage and has sent the ‘hantaran’ (gifts).
“He’s not married yet, but now he wants a divorce.
“But this is not just about seat negotiations. What’s important is we win. Bumburing got a seat when he was under PKR, but he couldn’t topple BN.”
Shafie then reiterated that Warisan needed to be cautious when working with other parties.
“It’s not that Warisan is too strong or greedy. We are not greedy. PBB (Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu) in Sarawak holds 50 of the 80 seats and their voice is loud.
“If we divide 20 seats here and 20 seats there, and when these 20 seat holders leave us, our government will collapse.
“So, the way forward for Sabah is to unite all the races and work together. A single race can’t topple BN but if we’re united under one wing, we can topple BN.
“I think PH and its components, DAP and PKR, haven’t finalised their seat negotiations either.”
Shafie also called for a halt to the accusations against him and Warisan on their sincerity as an opposition party and in working with others to form a new state government.
“I must stress again that Warisan won’t have a pact with anyone friendly to BN,” he said.
“But please don’t attack me because I’ve actually never responded (to any accusations) because what’s important is to topple BN.”
The opposition in Sabah, which consists of standalone parties and three coalitions — the national pact PH, a pact between PCS and Parti Kerjasama Anak Negeri, as well as local coalition Gabungan Sabah — have still not reached an agreement on the state seats.
This has resulted in BN and some analysts saying the opposition was still divided and this could affect their attempt to replace BN, which has been administering Sabah for more than 20 years.
Nevertheless, opposition parties are still in negotiations with Warisan, saying it is possible to cooperate with others without joining any coalition. -FMT

The Stereotyping Of PAS Leaders

People like Hussein have a very low opinion of PAS leaders and assume that most are country bumpkins. They also assume that only fishermen, farmers and kampung people support PAS. They cannot comprehend that more than 50% of Malay professionals support PAS and contribute financially to the Islamic cause. 

Raja Petra Kamarudin
Australian blogger Hussein Abdul Hamid posted the following in his blog today.
Just like most Pakatan Harapan supporters, Hussein assumes if you are a PAS leader that means you are a fisherman or farmer and a recipient of a kampung (village) education. Actually, many PAS leaders are professionals and are quite well off by Malaysian standards. Back in the 1980s and 1990s, most of my business success came from contacts or networking within PAS because in Malaysia it is know-who and not know-how that helps you get ahead.
I remember back in 1982 when I performed my first Haj (that was soon after Anwar Ibrahim betrayed the Islamic cause and joined Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in Umno) and I met the PAS President Ustaz Fadzil Muhammad Noor. I spent three weeks with him, Abdul Hadi Awang, Mustafa Ali, and a couple of other PAS leaders in Mekah, Medina and Jeddah.
Ustaz Fadzil asked me what I did for a living and I told him I was a businessman and that quite a bit of my business was supplying goods and services to the government.

Wise words from Ustaz Fadzil

Ustaz Fadzil then asked me whether I knew a certain person, and he mentioned the name of this person, Tuan Haji Mat — who happened to be the Secretary of the Contracts Division of a certain Ministry.
I actually did know that person since I was a supplier of goods and services to the government, and I told Ustaz Fadzil that. But this particular Tuan Haji would never allow contractors into his room. One day I tried to meet him and he asked me whether I was a government contractor. When I said “yes”, he chased me out of his room.
Ustaz Fadzil laughed and then told me to go and see Tuan Haji when I return from Mekah and kirim his (Ustaz Fadzil’s) salam.
I did just that. On my return from Mekah, I dropped into Tuan Haji’s office and knocked on his door. He said, “masuk,” and when I opened his door he gave me a huge smile and said, “Ah, Pak Raja, sila masuk.” He then summoned his staff and asked her to order tea and cakes and we sat for quite some time talking about PAS and the Islamic cause.
When I left Tuan Haji’s room, one of his officers gave me a military salute and said in all his years working there he had never seen Tuan Haji act that way. ‘Ilmu apa you pakai?” he asked me. That particular officer was also a strong PAS supporter, as was his entire family back in Terengganu.

Nik Aziz, like most PAS leaders, was a graduate and he said Kelantan State may be poor but its wealth is in its people

Basically, the point I am making is that everywhere I went (Ministries, TNB, Petronas, etc.) there would be many PAS supporters. They openly placed PAS flags on their desk and a person like me, who was also a PAS supporter, got red carpet treatment. I am not ashamed to admit that from the late 1970s up to the 1990s I procured more than RM100 million worth of government contracts. But I gave most of the profit back to the cause.
I estimate that I probably made at least RM8 million from my business but when I retired in the mid-1990s I had nothing left. But then there were many surau, masjid, madrasa, sekolah pondok, etc., all over the place that shared the profit I made. I also bought land and donated it to the cause so that they could build or expand surau, masjid, madrasa, sekolah pondok, and so on.
People like Hussein and the Pakatan Harapan supporters assume if PAS or the PAS leaders have money then it can only mean it is because they take bribes from Umno. I know one PAS wakil rakyat whose wife runs a very successful cosmetic direct selling business. She makes a lot of money and has been doing so for many years long before her husband became a wakil rakyat.
One PAS leader has huge parcels of land and there is gold on that land. The kampung people come from far and wide to ‘illegally’ mine that gold but this PAS leader does not mind. This is his way of ‘sharing the wealth’, which comes from God anyway. This has been going on for more than 40 years but not many Malaysians are aware of this. Have you ever heard about the gold mining in Terengganu?

Guess who owns this hotel in Bangkok, where I meet up with PAS leaders from time to time?

One PAS chap runs a successful petrol station and for three months in a year he spends all the money he makes by doing tabligh (missionary) work. They travel all over the world to countries such as India, Pakistan and so on and sleep in mosques. They put aside some money for their family and the rest is ‘blown’ on missionary work.
Most PAS people are involved in business because Muslims believe that 90% of rezeki comes from business while only 10% from working for others. Many lawyers, engineers and other professionals are PAS supporters and they give 10% or more of their salary to the cause.
People like Hussein have a very low opinion of PAS leaders and assume that most are country bumpkins. They also assume that only fishermen, farmers and kampung people support PAS. They cannot comprehend that more than 50% of Malay professionals support PAS and contribute financially to the Islamic cause.
I remember in the early 1990s when Mahathir insulted Kelantan by saying that Kelantan is the poorest state in Malaysia and Tok Guru Nik Aziz Nik Mat replied that Kelantan may be the poorest state in Malaysia but the citizens of Kelantan are rich and that Kelantan’s wealth is in its people.
