Not only IGP Khalid, but Home Minister Zaid Hamidi and former Home Minister Hishamuddin who should tender apology for the unjustified police shooting and killing of 14-year-ld Aminulrasyid Amzah in Shah Alam in April 2010

The Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar has said that he would not apologise to Aminulrasyhid Amzah’s family after the Shah Alam High Court found him liable for public misfeasance in the case of the slain 14-year-old teenager in Shah Alam in April 2010, claiming that his statement at the time was based on the facts of the case.

The Shah Alam High Court ordered the Inspector-General and the Police to pay RM414,000 as damages to Aminulrasyid’s family for the unjustified shooting and killing six years ago.

Khalid had said in a statement the day after Aminulrasyid was shot dead in a car chase with the police that a parang was found in the car.

The court found that this was an attempt by the IGP to justify the actions of the police officer who had fired at the 14-year-old.

Success of UMNO/BN strategists in distracting national attention from the second political event of the year – the March 27 Citizens’ Declaration “People’s Congress” in Shah Alam bridging racial, religious and political divides to Save Malaysia

Give credit where credit is due.

This is the first time that the expensive coterie of strategists and propagandists of the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak have scored a bull’s-eye in their propaganda offensives as they had been firing blanks all these years.

Their success is to distract national attention from the second political event of the year – the March 27 Citizens’ Declaration “People’s Congress” in Shah Alam this evening, bridging racial, religious and political divides for Save Malaysia!

From the television time and pages of newspaper space in government and UMNO/BN owned or controlled printed media devoted to the issue in the past 10 days, one should be excused for thinking that Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s purchase of RM2.8 million bungalow is the biggest scandal not only in Malaysia but in the world – one thousand times bigger than Najib Razak’s RM2.6 billion “donation” scandal, when RM2.6 billion is about 1,000 times more than RM2.8 million!

This is not to say that a RM2.8 million corruption scandal involving a DAP leader is acceptable or excusable, but so far there is nothing to show that Guan Eng has a case of corruption in the purchase of the RM2.8 million bungalow to answer. Read the rest of this entry »

What is the whole fuss on the CM’s house about?

Everyone seems to be asking Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to go on leave, the question is why should he if he has done no wrong? Since when do we have a law which forces the willing seller of a property to sell one’s property at market price? Who determines the market price?

We have the freedom to contract in this country and that is what most of those who wield power in Putrajaya do when it comes to the huge and luxurious properties that they have amassed in their list of properties that they own.

If the seller chooses to sell at a certain price which the Valuation Department of the Inland Revenue Board thinks is below the market rate determined by its valuers, then the Department values the property at the market rate and determines the stamp duty payable, although the purchase price is lower than the so-called market price.

The Valuation Department always takes the higher amount. Therefore if the property is actually valued at about RM6.5 million as the dissidents seem to accuse the purchaser of escaping, then there must a clear reason for this.

Are all the properties in the famed Taman Manggis that expensive? Read the rest of this entry »
