Too late for justification

AUG 3 — It is too late, Najib Razak. Just too late to try and justify your government’s actions in charging whistleblower Rafizi Ramli under the BAFIA.

Most discerning Malaysians know that the PKR politician has been a major problem for Barisan Nasional since he started exposing the National Feedlot Corporation scandal and he became an even bigger problem when he told us about the shennanigans behind the award of the Ampang LRT to George Kent, a company controlled by an associate of the PM.

It was only a matter of time that Rafizi was hauled up but the government is trying to intimidate other whistleblowers. Still, the government looks clumsy and on the backfoot in going after Rafizi. So today, Mr BRIM, has come out to explain that Rafizi should have handed over confidential info on the NFC to the MACC.

You got to be joking. For months, as Malaysians were being told about condos in KL and Singapore and other gross abuses by Shahrizat Jalil’s family, the MACC, the police and the Najib government were pretending to be asleep.

Had Rafizi given the info to MACC, it would have disappeared like all the other files against connected Malaysians. Did anyone notice that when Shahrizat’s husband was taken to court, he was not handcuffed but Rafizi was?

Till today, the NFC directors behave like untouchables, and yet the PM today has the temerity to tell Rafizi that he should have handed over the confidential information to the MACC.

He went on to say that the integrity of the financial system is important otherwise foreigners will not invest here. Foreigners will also not invest here if contracts are awarded to companies without the requisite track record.

One final word: Laws cannot and must not be the excuse for protecting wrongdoing.

    Is there any justification for the murder of Altantuya?

    Is there any justification for Rafizi’s arrest?

    Is there any justice any more?

    I believe Najib ordered Rafizi Ramli to be arrested because the latter revealed that the former has intervened in the award of the Ampang LRT to George Kent, a company controlled by an associate of the PM. I think Najib feels that if Rafizi Ramli who knows some much about “insider dealing” is not arrested, he could jeopardize his (Najib’s) chances in the 13th GE.

    Najis felt that his chances in the 13th GE are being threatened so he orders Rafizi Ramli to be arrested.

    You give classified information to MACC, and the first thing they will ask is whether you have made any copies. You say no, but they will still obtain a warrant to search your house, your parents’ house. Then they put you under surveillance. Helloooooo, what about the criminals ?

    Information about BN crooks will be suppressed or even made to disappear. That’s the rakyat’s perception.

    I see a burglar threatening my neighbour with a machete. I shoot him dead. If I am a BN supporter, I will be hailed as a civic-conscious superstar. If I am a Pakatan supporter, I will be charged with murder of the burglar.

    PR, if voted to power, must revamp all institutions to restore their credibility and integrity.

    The arrest of Rafizi Ramli further confirms that the BOSS has intervened in the award of the Ampang LRT to George Kent.

    Like many has said, the country are run by dogs, police by dogs, these spineless low principled individuals are turning this country into a waste land. Run by dogs, surrounded by rats.

    Are they going to charge the pornstar son Chua for ‘exposing’ talam as well? Charge him under official secret acts.

    KAJANG: Two snatch thieves, who were preying on a woman near Bandar Tun Hussein Onn, had their criminal act stopped when they were rammed by an alert motorist.

    The motorist, a 25-year-old factory worker, was passing by an aluminium factory when he noticed the woman struggling with two armed men.

    One of the men had a parang, and they were trying to steal the woman’s handbag as she walked home from the factory.

    Fearing for the woman’s safety, the good samaritan rammed into the two men and their motorcycle, stunning both of the suspects.

    The man got out of his car and apprehended one of the suspects, but the other individual escaped.

    Factory workers, who overheard the commotion, gathered around the suspect and beat him up before a police patrol car came and took him into custody.

    Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Ab Rashid Ab Wahab told a press conference yesterday the suspect suffered injuries to the head, hands, ribs and right leg from being rammed by the car and as a result of the beating.

    He said investigations revealed that the 32-year-old suspect, who tested positive for opiates, was from Seri Kembangan, had prior records for vehicle theft and was only recently released from prison.

    Police seized the suspect’s sling bag, which contained a number of foreign currencies, a knife and a mobile phone.

    ACP Ab Rashid added that the suspect had confessed to 22 snatch thefts around the Klang Valley. Police are now hunting for a 19-year-old accomplice.

    – The STAR online

    The police are now investigating allegations that the 25 year-old factory worker is an active DAP member, and had used excessive force on the helpless suspect.

    ///The police are now investigating allegations that the 25 year-old factory worker is an active DAP member, and had used excessive force on the helpless suspect.///–Godfather

    The police was angry that the good samaritan has caused the crime figure to go up by one.

    The police prefers that the women got robbed as it can hope that the women would not bother to make police report.

    Worse, police was siding with BN and even good deeds performed by people who are members of Pakatan Rakyat are interpreted as harbouring criminal intent, and the law is used to persecute Pakatan Rakyat members. One would have thought that the police would be thankful to citizens making arrests to keep the country safe. But police chooses to play politics, and police effectively discourage citizens performing samaritan act. Was it to make citizens selfish like BN leaders?

    ///DAP harbours ambitions of usurping rival MCA from the ranks of Barisan Nasional BN by building on its gains in Penang Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said today in a new round of offensive ahead of a looming general election “The DAP ultimately wants to be in the government like in Penang and now they hope to be the government at federal level ” the MCA president was quoted in a report by The Star today “DAP politicians are like any other politicians for them it is the thirst for power ”.///–MalaysianInsider

    CSL admits that as politician he has the thirst for power. He thinks that DAP politicians are like him; he could be wrong.

    In believing that DAP might take over MCA position in BN he says that he believes that UMNO would ditch MCA. CSL claims that DAP is against BN. Why would UMNO accept DAP when it does not toe BN line? If MCA had been able to air the needs of the community MCA said to represent, how could a multiracial party take over the role of MCA? Clearly MCA has been impotent in performing its stated duties. If CSL believes that DAP would replace MCA, then Chinese should ensure that MCA is totally defeated in the coming election. Chinese have double insurance. Firstly if BN is defeated, there is a change of racist government in the country. If BN wins,and MCA is out, there might be a check on UMNO behaviour if MCA is not in government to give the impression that all is well with the Chinese community.

    Replacing a dick with a dildo may not make much diff to csl’s woman. But puttung dap in place of mca in bn will surely blast umno into deep space.

    The harder they try to pin RR, the greater will be their exposure! Najib, unless you are prepared to treat the average Malaysian respectfully in his ability to think and weigh facts, you will lose more than you think. By treating Malaysians like little kids, you are indeed insulting their intelligence and self=respect.
