嘉玛凌晨现「声」 解释「逃跑」缘由

(27-5-2018)

(吉隆坡27日讯)自週五下午失踪逾30小时的红衣人领袖拿督斯里嘉玛今日凌晨终於现「声」了!他重申,他並没有逃跑,而是沟通中间出现误会,他急忙离开是为了要前往朝圣积金局提款交付延扣金及其他相关费用。

他於今日凌晨1时半,在其友人的协助下,將一段长达2分钟2.38秒的声音片段发佈在一个嘉玛与媒体交流的WhatsApp群组內,解释他「逃跑事件」的缘由。嘉玛在声音片段中指出,自己於上週五下午2时,以为自己的延扣期限已经完成,因此,才会於下午3时15分急忙离开医院,赶往朝圣积金局提款交付延扣金及其他费用。「我当时怕朝圣积金局的营业时间快要结束,

因此急忙离开医院,不料隨后却获知警方通缉我的事件。」她说,当天早上他在莎阿南及安邦推事的见证下,完成面控事宜,隨后他获知延扣期限已经完成,因此才会出院办事。「我並没有逃走,中间有一些误会,我以为保释手续已经完成,但其中有数份保释文件还未签署。」他指出,目前他的身体状况仍不佳,待情况较好后,他將会配合警方,完成所有的保释手续。

惟他全程並没有在声音片段中透露,他现在人在何处,而其代表律师拿督莫哈末英蓝隨后也发文表示,嘉玛已经联络其律师团队交代事件,律师团队也將协助他完成保释手续。「我们相信此事是因误会而引起,目前也已经向警方作出通知。」嘉玛是於上週五早上10时在安邦公主专科医院病房內面对3项控罪,包括被控於去年10月,在雪州政府大厦门外用铁鎚砸碎酒瓶,

危害公眾安全,但他一概否认有罪。他是在莎阿南推事拉惹诺阿迪拉麵前进行面控程序,过程长达30分钟。嘉玛因为正在接受背痛(sakit belakang)治疗,因此在医院进行面控。雪州刑事调查组主任法兹尔高级助理总监表示,嘉玛分別牴触2个刑事法典第448条文( 非法入侵建筑物)和一个刑事法典中的第268/290(公共滋扰)条文;前2个控状將在7月4日过堂,

另一个则是在6月8日过堂。「嘉玛在推事念出控状后否认有罪,推事批准他以每个控状3000令吉作为保释,但他却在没有完成保释手续下不见。」

Najib sindir ‘ekonomi pulih’ dalam 2 minggu

(27-5-2018)

Bekas perdana menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak berkata beliau hairan bagaimana ekonomi negara didakwa pulih dalam tempoh yang singkat selepas dikatakan sebelum ini dalam keadaan krisis. “Saya hairan betapa cepatnya ekonomi negara bertukar dari kononnya dalam keadaan krisis dan gagal sebelum pilihan raya umum ke-14 (PRU14) kepada keadaan ekonomi yang kuat dan kukuh.

“Cuma dua minggu lebih sahaja? (diambil oleh kerajaan untuk pulihkan ekonomi),” katanya secara sinikal melalui Twitter. Kenyataan itu dibuat sebagai mengulas artikel yang disiarkan semalam yang memetik Menteri Kewangan Lim Guan Eng sebagai berkata bahawa Malaysia masih mempunyai asas ekonomi yang kukuh. “Kita perlu ingat bahawa asas ekonomi Malaysia masih kuat dan kukuh,” kata Lim ketika mengulas berhubung keadaan semasa ekonomi negara. Sebelum PRU14, pemimpin Pakatan Harapan (HARAPAN) sering mendakwa ekonomi negara dalam keadaan tenat dan sedang menuju bankrap.

Pengerusi HARAPAN yang juga merupakan Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad minggu lalu mendakwa hutang negara melebihi RM1 trilion. Bagaimanapun, Lim pada Khamis lalu menjelaskan jumlah RM1 trilion itu termasuk RM199.1 bilion dalam jaminan kerajaan dan RM201.4 bilion dalam bayaran pajakan untuk kerjasama awam dan swasta.

Jumlah hutang sebenar adalah RM686.8 bilion atau 50.8 peratus keluaran dalam negara kasar yang dipetik Najib di bulan terakhirnya menjadi perdana menteri.

Perak akan laksana air percuma pada golongan sasar

(27-5-2018)

Kerajaan Perak pimpinan Pakatan Harapan akan menunaikan satu daripada 31 janji yang ditawarkan kepada rakyat Perak, iaitu pemberian air percuma kepada golongan sasaran. Menteri Besar Ahmad Faizal Azumu berkata proses perbincangan bersama pentadbiran yang berkaitan sedang dibuat, termasuk dengan Lembaga Air Perak (LAP).

“Kami dapati ada ruang luas yang mencukupi untuk kami laksanakan dalam masa terdekat. “Jadi kami akan tentukan definisi yang lebih jelas mengenai kumpulan sasaran yang akan merasai nikmat pemberian air percuma itu,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas majlis berbuka puasa bersama kariah di Masjid Jamek Ar-Rahmaniah, Chenderiang, Tapah malam ini. Ahmad Faizal yang juga Anggota Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Chenderiang berkata tawaran tersebut akan dilaksanakan dalam 100 hari pertama, namun mengikut kemampuan kewangan kerajaan negeri. Jelas beliau, pihaknya mempunyai keyakinan penuh terhadap LAP untuk melaksanakan satu daripada manifesto Pakatan Harapan negeri itu ketika Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14.

Dalam pada itu mengulas mengenai tindakan sebuah badan bukan kerajaan (NGO) di Manjoi yang membantah penjualan minuman keras di sebuah pasar raya baru-baru ini, Ahmad Faizal menasihati NGO terbabit agar mengikut saluran yang disediakan dan bukannnya bertindak bersendirian bagi mengelakkan masalah lain timbul. “Saya faham dengan sentimen dan emosi NGO itu memandangkan Kampung Manjoi merupakan Kampung Melayu terbesar dalam negara. “Namun begitu, saya berpendapat perkara ini boleh disalurkan kepada pihak kerajaan dan boleh kita mengadakan rundingan dengan pihak pengusaha pasar raya,” katanya. Khamis lepas, sekumpulan individu mendatangi sebuah pasar raya dan meminta pekerja premis itu berkenaan mengosongkan peti sejuk yang mengandungi minuman keras.

Menteri Besar itu yang juga Anggota Parlimen Tambun turut menasihatkan pengusaha pasar raya yang beroperasi di kawasan majoriti Melayu agar lebih sensitif dengan masyarakat sekeliling mereka. – Bernama

Jamal masih tak dapat dikesan lepas 30 jam hilang

(27-5-2018)

Ketua Umno Sungai Besar Datuk Seri Jamal Md Yunos dikatakan masih belum muncul selepas 30 jam hilang dari Hospital Ampang Puteri semalam. Kehilangan Jamal menyukarkan proses jaminan kes mahkamah yang sedang dijalaninya di wad hospital berkenaan.

Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Selangor, Senior Asisten Komisioner Fadzil Ahmat yang dipetik Astro Awani berkata, polis sedang giat mengesan kedudukan Jamal untuk menyelesaikan proses dokumentasi tersebut. “Setakat ini (10 malam), kami belum dapat mengesan kedudukan beliau (Jamal). Kita berharap dia tampil dan bekerjasama untuk menyelesaikan proses jaminan mahkamah ini,” katanya dipetik sebagai berkata. Jamal dikatakan hilang dari hospital tempatnya membuat rawatan sakit belakang itu antara pukul 5 ke 6 petang ketika pihak polis dan peguam sedang melakukan dokumentasi jaminan mahkamah.

Jamal disiasat berhubung kes memecahkan botol arak di hadapan pagar pintu masuk bangunan pentadbiran kerajaan negeri Selangor Oktober tahun lepas. Sementara itu, peguam Jamal, Mohd Imran Thamrin awal hari ini berkata kehilangan Jamal dari wad hospitalnya semalam tidak disengajakan dan mungkin disebabkan ‘silap komunikasi’.

Mohd Imran juga menggesa anak guamnya hadir di balai polis dan membantu menyempurnakan proses ikat jamin.

Wake Up Malaysians! – Comment

(27-5-2018)

Najib has not hesitated to get his paid-up bullies in Red Shirts onto the streets to threaten ordinary folk, following the DOJ’s devastating details over his thefts from 1MDB. But it’s next week that he plans to really take charge. On 1st August his shocking National Security Act comes into force, designed to hand him dictatorial powers wherever he likes, against whom he likes for any six months at a time. Then he can renew those powers.

The bill was introduced without warning late on the final day of the Parliamentary session at the end of last year. Surprised MPs were given no time to scrutinise it, let alone put forward amendments and the debate was cursory as it was rushed through its stages in an effective pre-planned coup by the Prime Minister against his Parliament and the democratic rights of his own people. Even the Sultans and the Agong have been shocked into a rare refusal to sign it unamended – but rather than accept their counsel on a matter of core national security he has brushed their concerns aside and forced it into law unchanged or re-considered. That Najib’s excuse was the need to combat ISIS is no surprise. Yet the terms of this Act would lead anyone to conclude that Malaysia has experienced worse threats than Europe, Indonesia and the US put together, which of course is not true.

None of those countries have attempted to create such sweeping powers to combat terrorists – the reason being that this law has nothing to do with fighting criminals… and everything to do with protecting the one who is presently in charge. To give just a single example of the evil intent of this National Security Act, consider the clause that cancels the formal inquest into the death of anyone killed by army or police in any crackdown under its provisions. Someone must have thought closely to insert such a sinister detail in advance. That someone must have decided that they are tired of being inconvenienced by all the paraphernalia of the law when it comes to murder cases. That person wants to be freed from questioning and investigation, when someone who gets in his way is ordered dead. Does Malaysia want to place such a dangerous law in the hands of a desperate thief and liar like Najib, who is furthermore himself personally associated with a string of murky, half-solved murders?



And yet, the mainstream press in Malaysia has been almost as silent on this deadly law, as over the shocking revelations by America’s Department of Justice about their Prime Minister’s thefts from 1MDB. The story which has been headlines for the past two days in every other country in the world has remained virtually unreported where it is most relevant – Malaysia. What press coverage there has been has even attempted to pretend that the description of Najib as ‘Malaysian Official 1′ means that he has somehow not been identified in the US indictment. Do they think Malaysian’s are laughably stupid? For the avoidance of doubt the PM is plainly and clearly identified in the United States Department of Justice indictment as the corrupt official who received $681 million in his private bank account direct from 1MDB (no Saudi Royals in sight). The rest of the world media has had zero problem in making the connection, as evinced by the headline at the top of this article. It is merely that legal documents only cite by name those who are directly moved against in that indictment – since Najib placed the US-based loot in the name of his step-son Riza and Jho Low (both now hiding in Malaysia and Taiwan) he was not directly relevant to that indictment.

However, his proven duplicity and shocking level of corruption is supremely relevant to people in Malaysia. Frogs?
There is an over-used analogy, which explains a dangerous torpor, which could finally lose Malaysians their last vestiges of freedom, promising poverty and misery for their country. A frog will jump out if you put it into hot water, but if you start from cold and heat it up, it stays and cooks. After years of incremental abuses and ever-worsening corrupted practice, it seems Malaysians no longer understand a tipping-point or see the moment to act. Revelations that mobilised Icelanders and even people in Brazil to successfully voice their outrage and to pressure the departure of discredited leaders, seem in danger of falling on deaf ears amongst self-defeatist Malaysians, who have perhaps bubbled in the pot too long?

It seems too many prefer to explain why ‘nothing can be done’, rather than take a risk and do it. This paralysis is worst amongst those with the most responsibility to take action now – those around Najib. Their failure to do the necessary is forcing others – ordinary people – to have to do their job of replacing a leader who has lost the plot.Here we have one of the remaining countries in the world where sodomy remains a crime and was even used to place a popular opposition leader in jail on cooked-up charges. Yet, the population is being asked to nonetheless bend over and be thus abused.

How will once proud Malaysians be able to look other nations in the face if they let it happen and surrender up their freedoms to a thief, who has been exposed and discredited the world over for buying power with money stolen from the poor?
