Top five topics of all Malaysians during the Dragon Chinese New Year holidays

What will be the top five topics of all Malaysians during the Dragon Chinese New Year holidays?

I will pick the following five:

(1) The Attorney-General’s appeal against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s acquittal in the Sodomy2 charge by the Kuala Lumpur High Court, expressing the determination of the top UMNO leaders to want to see Anwar in jail.

(2) The Court of Appeal decision to overturn the Kuala Lumpur High Court decision to acquit and discharge DAP National Chairman Karpal Singh on the sedition charge relating to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s illegal, unconstitutional and undemocratic coup d’etat against the Pakatan Rakyat Perak state government.

Both these incidents have killed off public hopes that Malaysia is firmly set on the road to restoration of national and international confidence in our justice system, with a just rule of law and truly independent judiciary.

The only inescapable conclusion is that Malaysia can only begin to seriously undo the ravages against the doctrine of separation of powers especially between the Executive and the Judiciary in the past 24 years years stemming from the arbitrary sacking of the then Lord President Tun Salleh Abas and two Supreme Court judges Tan Sri Wan Suleiman Pawanteh and Datuk George Seah in 1988.

(3) RM300 million National Feedlot Centre (NFC) “cattle condo” scandal highlighting the worsening state of corruption an cronyism in the country which even before this scandal had fallen to the worst Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index (CPI) 2011 ranking of No. 60 and score of 4.3 in the past 17 years with both set to plunge to new depths in 2012. This is why there is no public confidence in the independence, integrity and professionalism in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), which has not been able to shake off its early image as a tool of the Barisan Nasional to hound and persecute Pakatan Rakyat leaders, resulting in the cold-blooded murder of Teoh Beng Hock – a crime which is still crying out for justice!

(4) The fraud and hypocrisy of the International Conference on the Global Movement of the Moderates when racism, extremism, hate and downright falsehoods had reached new heights under Najib’s 33-month premiership, with the chief culprit none other than the UMNO newspaper, Utusan Malaysia. What was most significant about the Conference was what did not happen – Najib’s failure to respond to my five tests to demonstrate that the Prime Minister qualifies to be regarded as the voice of moderates in Malaysia!

(5) These four top topics for all Malaysians in the Dragon Chinese New Year holidays lead to and merge with the fifth – that there can only be hope and salvation for the country and real change if Malaysians regardless of race, religion and region, grasp the first opportunity in 54 years to effect UBAH, get rid of UMNO/Barisan Nasional in Putrajaya and instal a new Pakatan Rakat federal government with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the seventh Prime Minister of Malaysia.

    /// KUALA LUMPUR Jan 22 — A former National Feedlot Corporation NFCorp employee who is alleged to have leaked the company’s financial records was fired for stealing RM2 7 million in cash and will soon face criminal charges Datuk Ibrahim Ali said today. The Perkasa chief said the “non-Malay” marketing executive who was in charge of collecting cash payments from the NFCorp’s clients had squirreled away RM10 000 to RM20 000 daily before he was caught by company accountants.///–Malaysian Insider

    Now Ibrahm Ali of Perkasa makes racial issue out of the NFC Cowgate scandal by saying that two non-Malays employees were whistle blowers. To him, if there were no non-Malays employed, the case would not have been brought up. Perkasa prefers that the case remains buried.

    Ibrahim Ali said that the two non-Malay employees swindled the company of 2.7 million ringgit. Whether the whistle blowers were facing trumped-up charges or not, NFC is still a Cowgate. The identity of the two who blew the whistle was not important. Whether NFC had its money stolen is not of concern to Malaysians. We care whether the NFC management had mismanaged government funds. We care whether NFC was a project beneficial to the nation. We care whether NFC is part of NEP. If it was then clearly NEP has been bastardized to make rich ‘Malay’ richer rather than helping to alleviate poverty among Malaysians.

    Wrong my friend, the number one topic is GE 13. How to help the opposition to win and how to wipe out MCA. How to beat Mr Gerry and Mander.

    We need to change the tenant at Putrajaya. GE 13 is coming soon. It is our best chance. Let us work very very hard.

    The AG’s appeal of Anwar’s non-guilty verdict raises concern on the criterion the AG adopts in appealing the decision of the High Court. The acquittal of Razak Baginda in the Altantuja murder case comes naturally to mind.

    Altantuja murder case was also a case of the state against a murder suspect. That case resulted in two persons who had no motives to murder Altantuja though they put her to death. There must have been a mastermind who wanted Altantuja dead. Who is the mastermind? That person remains unknown. Why did the AG rest a murder case which remain unresolved? If there was no other person who was a mastermind-suspect, shouldn’t Razak Baginda who knows Altantuja give answer to the murder. The AG decided to accept the decision of the High Court as final in a case which involved a more serious offence of murder on which deterrent is more important for the security of the population than a sodomy case which involved two persons for whom the public other than Mamakthir had no interest. Yet the AG saw it fit to appeal the High court decision of a matter which should not have been prosecuted in the first place. Was it to serve Mamakthir?

    Najib can claim that there might be judicial reform. But there is no reform in the AG chamber where the AG fails in his duties in the proper allocation of resources for prosecute only cases which have bearing to the society. The AG has yet to charge MACC staff for the death of TBH but he finds it necessarily to pursue a case at worst relate to sodomy involving two consenting adults. Would the AG care about thousands of other adults who are involved in unnatural sex. Has anybody died because of unnatural sex? Why then should the AG be overzealous about sex issue linking politicians opposed to BN?

    ///(1) The Attorney-General’s appeal against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s acquittal in the Sodomy2 charge by the Kuala Lumpur High Court, expressing the determination of the top UMNO leaders to want to see Anwar in jail.///

    With Anwar under prosecution or in jail, more Malay votes will flow to Pakatan in GE13. Unlike 1998, this time the non-Malays are not going to support BN. Pakatan should grab this golden opportunity to wrest federal power from BN.

    Kit’s urging of the Chinese to unite and work with other Malaysians to kick out BN in GE13 is a right move.
