The “mother of all moral scandals” perpetrated by titled politicians and so-called leaders

On Sunday, the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak claimed success in its first annual report of the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) particularly in the six pillars or National Key Result Areas (NKRAs).

All these NKRAs whether in fighting corruption or reducing crime can be challenged but one NKRA which the Najib administration has indisputably achieved is the plunge of Malaysian politics to the lowest and dirtiest gutter level in the nation’s history.

The lowest and dirtiest gutter politics was reached in the shameful and despicable Carcosa Sri Negara sex videotape screening scandal which has been condemned by all right-thinking Malaysians.

The Malaysian Consultative Council for Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) has described it as the “mother of all moral scandals” perpetrated by titled personalities and so-called leaders.

The MCCBCHST statement said:

“Their aim in publicly humiliating the Opposition Leader of Parliament offends the sensitivities of decent people, no matter to what race or religion they belong.”

It said:

“Since the involvement of the trio has surfaced, the Malaysian public is once again feted with disgusting material that begs the question, ‘where is all this leading to?’ in spite of the many seasonal national slogans that challenge us to greater heights of achievement and harmony.”

MCCBCHST declared that the Carcosa scandal does not inspire the younger generation to trust in the political process or to observe cultural, religious, social and moral norms.

The council called on the government to take swift and firm action against all those behind the scandal.

It said;

“We further urge the government to distance itself from all forms of deceit and cunning and bring the perpetrators of this latest mischief to face the full extent of the law.

“Furthermore, the government should employ every means to quell the rising anger, disquiet and dismay over this uncalled-for sordid and despicable attempt, by an unscrupulous few, to achieve their own personal disgusting agenda.”

I fully agree with Dr. Paul Tan Che Ing, the Catholic Bishop of the Melaka-Johore diocese and who is also the president of the Catholic Bishops Conference, who has issued a very stern warning about the far-reaching implications of the Sri Carcosa scandal.

He said;

“If the authorities do not take action against those responsible when laws are flagrantly flouted, then we are engendering a situation where fair is foul and foul is fair.

“This is a dangerous pass, one in which people, especially the young, will think that there is one set of rules for a privileged few and another set of rules for the rest.”

I am therefore utterly shocked that the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, has come to the defence of the criminals when he said that the “Datuk T” trio responsible for the shameful and despicable Carcosa scandal can be protected under the Witness Protection Act and Whistleblower Act.

Even before the police have taken action against the “Datuk T” trio under various laws of the country, the Barisan Nasional government has come to their defence and even granting them immunity and impunity for their crimes!

Under these circumstances, who can have confidence that current investigations into the Carcosa Sri Negara scandal will be fair, professional and in the full national interests.

Even top police officials do not have such confidence.

Yesterday, Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim wrote an open letter to the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar expressing his total lack of confidence that justice will be done in the Carcosa Sri Negara sex videotape screening scandal.

Mat Zain was the investigating officer in the notorious Anwar Ibrahim “black-eye” scandal but who was not allowed to complete his investigations because of interference from disclosing that it was the then Inspector-General of Police who was responsible for the assault until a Royal Commission of Inquiry was instituted several months later.

In his Open Letter to the IGP yesterday on the Carcosa sex videotape scandal, Mat Zain wrote:

“Saya yakin sepenuhnya bahawa PDRM mampu menjalankan tanggung jawabnya menjalankan siasatan tersebut secara professional dan berkecuali dan tidak terpengaruh dengan tekanan mana-mana pihak sekalipun, lebih-lebih lagi dibawah pimpinan Tan Sri ketika ini.

“Namun begitu kertas siasatan ini kelak akan diteliti dan diputuskan olih Gani Patail,Peguam Negara.Diperingkat inilah dijangka akan berlaku,putar belit,manipulasi,penipuan dan pemalsuan apabila sedar akan caramana Gani Patail dan Musa Hassan menangani penyiasatan kes-kes jenayah apabila melibatkan Anwar Ibrahim(Anwar) dan Rahim Thambi Chik (Rahim) dimasa lampau.’

As the Director of Criminal Investigations Division, Kuala Lumpur at the time, Mat Zain had been entrusted with investigations into four police reports lodged by Anwar Ibrahim from Sungei Buloh Prisons, one of which involved corruption of Rahim Thamby Cik as Malacca Chief Minister.

Mat Zain wrote:

“7. Mengenai kes rasuah terhadap Rahim pula,BPR dan Jabatan Peguam Negara mengesahkan dalam laporan mereka bahawa terdapat keterangan yang mencukupi untuk membuktikan kes “prima facie” terhadap beliau.Malahan Jabatan Peguam Negara telah menyediakan empat (4)pertuduhan kesemuanya. Iaitu;3(tiga) pertuduhan dibawah Emergency(Essential Powers)Ordinance No:22 of 1970 dan satu pertuduhan kerana membuat Statutory Declaration (SD) palsu dibawah Sek.199 yang boleh dihukum dibawah Seksyen 193 Kanun Keseksaan.

“7.1. Bagaimanapun Rahim tidak dituduh langsung,setelah Peguam Negara “indemnify” segala kesalahan jenayahnya setelah Rahim dipercayai bersetuju untuk melepaskan jawatan dalam Kerajaan,Badan-Badan Berkanun dan Parti Politik.Ini adalah apa yang terdapat didalam laporan yang disediakan oleh Jabatan Peguam Negara sendiri.

“7.2. Tidak ada sebutan mengenai cara pelupusan harta berjumlah hampir RM40 juta yang Rahim perolehi secara rasuah itu..Tiada maklumat mengenai persetujuan yang dicapai oleh Rahim dan Peguam Negara berkaitan harta yang diperolehi sedemikian itu dalam bentuk:RM 5,439,796.40 sen dalam kawalan peribadi Rahim sendiri,RM14,487,420.50 sen simpanan tunai dalam beberapa buah bank dan RM19,855,555.70 sen harta Syarikat-Syarikat.

“7.3. Persoalan yang tidak kurang pentingnya ialah adakah Peguam Negara mempunyai kuasa untuk “indemnify” kesalahan jenayah mana-mana orang berdasarkan pertimbangan Politik?. Adakah Peguam Negara berhak melepaskan wang Rakyat RM 40 juta sebegitu mudah untuk Rahim menikmatinya tanpa sebarang tindakan.Adakah ini sesuatu yang adil kepada Rakyat sedangkan Peguam Negara yang telah mengesahkan bahawa Rahim memperolehi harta sedemikian banyak menerusi salahguna kuasa dan rasuah.Apa yang jelas dalam kes Rahim ini, Peguam Negara juga telah menyalahgunakan kuasanya.”

I hope that the many pertinent questions raised by Mat Zain in his Open Letter, particularly with regard to the Attorney-General as well as Rahim Thamby Cik, could be answered in Parliament.

    Nazri using Whistleblower act to protect the 3 low class criminals….showing sex show openly…accusing Anwar?
    Police report by Anwar..wife and others all ignored and not important?
    This two faced hypocrite Law Minister is a joke.
    Well so many have him cornered and lets see how he try to wiggle it out with his snaky reputation.
    Najib claiming success in his transforming program?
    Succeeding transforming what?
    Tranforming Malaysians to be crooks and idiots?
    Aiya….anything Najib says…don’t ever believe them.
    He is a born childish pampered liar…now feeling the heat is on him.
    Yes the HEAT in ON.

    ///I can bring you to meet with the Prime Minister and we will take care of your financial needs and security/// – Rahim (The Malaysian Insider)

    Apparently, Rahim was telling Johari in the above conversation that the latter had better leave PKR and join BN since Anwar was so “immoral”. We can see from here that the sex video was well planned by BN to cause mass defection of PKR members to BN. Fortunately this did not happen!

    In the good old days, our previous leaders in the ruling party used subtle ways to bend the law but these days the present gov of the day just couldn’t care less…every each way will do, whether or not it is the mother of this or the mother of that. The way I see it they are willing to sell any mother so long as they stay in power. To the young, the mother of all moral decay starts now and here. Hope all Malaysians know what they are doing on D-Day when GE13 comes staring point blank at us.

    Watch it. In the sex clip incident, anwar was clearly victimised. That was plainly the whole purpose. Umno and the police did not bother to establish the actual identity of the actor in the clip. They are quite happy to let the public live with the wrong perception (which they created) that the actor was anwar. Of course except for a few barisan idiots like soilek and several others no one believed the clip or took in the perception which umno attempted to create. In other words umno failed. Never mind that. The point is anwar was victimised and had been traumatised by the umno-peddled falsehood.

    The perpetrators – now commonly known as the Trios – of that clip must, logically and fairly speaking, be punished. Before the police announced the completion of their investigation umno gave an official direction (I dont know what else it can be if not a direction) that the Trios be protected as whistleblowers. But what whistleblowing did the Trios do other than inflicting malicious damage upon the good reputation of another? It would be ridiculous if the Trios is allowed to hide their criminal activities behind a piece of legislation. Then again if umno can use the ISA to protect a detainee, umno can do anything. Booooleh.

    Anwar, umno believed, has not suffered enough. Somehow he must be made to suffer more. And soon the salt will soon come. Umno will punish anwar for saying that the police was behind the clip. This will turn out like a re-run of the rahim tamby chik’s case – with a slight modification to the plot. The real monster get to roam free. Here the victim will be punished. In the old case the whistleblower was punished.

    It would be ridiculous if the Trios is allowed to hide their criminal activities behind a piece of legislation – #4.

    Hello….it’s obvious that the Trios were hired to do a job here….their job is to blow….that’s why a minister quickly classified that the Trios fell under the protection as “Whistleblowers”, mainly because due to a job well done.

    The sex video proved that BN is not confident of winning the 13th GE despite their grand election machinery and monopoly of the mainstream media. PR stands a good chance of being voted into federal power if it works hard.

    The UMNO Chins and UMNO thambys made this corrupted and racist party what she is today….arrogant, evil and blooming deranged cheats!
    Majority electorate are not blameless…we opted for quick material gains. Let us hope, we can restore our integrity, correct our weaknesses and thrive for change with our only formidable weapon, our sacred votes!

    Protection under Whistleblower & Witness Act? For a moment I thought that was Mr Bean’s speaking on Comedy Central !! This is the JOKE of the century.

    First of all, what is the crime? Having sex with a prost.? It is not even proven that its Anwar. How about all those men who visits pros but not caught on video? Should all of us turn witnesses so that all men including high profile personalities, goes to jail? Does it mean that if you are not caught on tape you are a saint?

    Come on Minister. You are obviously testing our intelligence. Its a no brainer. It is beginning to look more and more like a set up.

    Mr Minister, please don’t twist the law to suit VIPs. Black is black and white is white. Without proof on the tape’s authenticity, judgments are already passed on Datuk Seri Anwar. Doesn’t the law states innocent until proven guilty?

    Wake up all Malaysians of all races when you vote in the coming GE!

    It would appear that the Act had been purposely created so that dirty tricks sponsored by the ruling parties can reach a higher height. Rule by law in the country is now in full public view.

    Uncle Lim, PR must not be distracted by such issues.
    PR parties must keep their eyes on the ball in Sarawak!

    ///KUALA LUMPUR: Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz has admitted he was wrong in his earlier statement about the protection offered to the “Datuk T trio” under the Whistleblower Protection Act.///–Star Online

    There would be no action against the Trio by the government because the government was in a hurry to offer protection should there be a court case against them. How can we expect the AG to initiate against them for criminal actions? The laws in the country are only used against opposition members.

  17. #17 by limkamput on Tuesday, 29 March 2011 - 10:23 pm

    We can all say lots of things, but does it matter? Look at those in the establishments and those “pious people” on government payroll, have they made any comment thus far. That is why I have always maintained that piousness in the name of religion is only skin deep. As long as most of the people are indoctrinated with false sense of racial and religious superiority, this country is not going to change. So long as many can still be satisfied with a tin of Milo, cheap biscuits and RM50 in brown envelopes, this government in fact can continue to plunder with impunity. This government will be forced to take extreme and even ridiculous positions (like for example, using whistleblower protection) because they know they can not match reasoned and rationale arguments anymore. So they resort to ridiculous measures that hopefully will appeal to the rightists and the ignorant.

    Mayan calendar ending in end of 2012 and “RAHMAN” prophecy ended with Najib as the last PM from Umno.
    You don’t have to be an expert to predict such an event as it’s well “written” in the stars.
    Even the date fixed for Sarawak states election was considered as a “curse” to UmnoBN.
    So! to BN component parties, either you jump ship now or you sink with Umno!

    Umno knew very well that they’re heading for the dead end!
    With malays support eroding, they’re now trying to please the chinese by giving out millions to chinese schools.
    When there’re no election, request from these instituition are mostly turned down or ignored, just because some arrogant fella boasted that he’s a “malay” first.
    Now trying to “ampu” the Chinese as chinese are the second largest group here.
    Look Moo, we people are not stupid anymore ‘cos whatever you government gives, has nothing to do with us.
    It’s only the school’s head who is smiling but not us.
    The only time that we can smile and even celebrate till the wee hours is the time when BN collapse.
    How much can you people throw and give?
    By the way, please tell hisap puting that I’m very happy to see many traffic police giving out summons everyday just to replenish your Umno’s war chest.
    Keep up the “good work”, for when the time comes, we motorists will “hentam” you kuat kuat!

  24. #24 by Bigjoe on Wednesday, 30 March 2011 - 9:01 am

    Honestly Sdr. Lim, after so many decades opposing BN, I would not expect you underestimate the BN. Najib’s mother of all scandal has NOT even show itself yet. This is nothing.

    The scandal will have to be Selangor election. Its clear now that BN cannot win back Selangor in coming GE without massive cheating. The numbers don’t lie. The strategy at best can be described as splitting the non-Malay votes and relying on Malay votes will not be enough to win back Selangor.

    The only way for BN to win back Selangor is massive cheating which the opposition have no clue how extensive.
