Considerable merit in Musa’s proposal that a RCI into Memali tragedy be held but after 14th General Election

There is considerable merit in the proposal by the former Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Tun Musa Hitam that a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on the Memali Tragedy in November 1985 which claimed 18 lives be held but after the 14th General Election.

Musa said the RCI should be established after the next general election to prevent it from being abused by politicians for their interests. There is also no need to rush the RCI since the incident occurred more than three decades ago. Read the rest of this entry »

In three days, Gerakan has provided ample evidence that it has been reduced to a “three-stooges” party in BN which dare not speak up on the great issues of right and wrong in Malaysia but dwell on trifles and trivialities

In three days, Gerakan has provided ample evidence that it has been reduced to the status of a “three-stooges” party in Barisan Nasional which dare not speak up on the great issues of right and wrong in Malaysia but could only dwell on trifles and trivialities.

Firstly, there is the Gerakan President and Minister Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong as the first stooge who created political history by issuing a challenge, not on behalf of himself, but on behalf of another, when he challenged me to contest against the Barisan Nasional/Gerakan Penang State Chairman Teng Chang Yeow in the 14th General Election.

Secondly, a second stooge when we see the BN/Gerakan Penang State Chairman continuing to “twist and turn” to camouflage his desire to contest again in next general election, but he dared not return to Padang Kota where he had been Assemblyman for three terms in 1995, 1999 and 2004 but was defeated by Penang DAP State Chairman Chow Kon Yeow in the 2008 General Election by a margin of 1,666 votes.

In the 2013 General Election, he was afraid to face Chow again in Padang Kota and ran away to what he thought was the safest seat for Gerakan in Bukit Tengah, but was defeated by the PKR candidate, Ong Chin Wen with a huge margin of 5,190 votes. Read the rest of this entry »


Isa Samad should not have been forced to wear orange-coloured MACC lock-up uniform when taken to court for remand, but he should also not continue to hold the post of SPAD Acting Chairman

It is wrong, improper, unconstitutional and most humiliating and demeaning to force Tan Sri Isa Samad to wear the orange-coloured MACC lock-up uniform when he was brought to court for remand proceedings as it breached a detainee’s fundamental liberty under the Federal Constitution.

I call on the MACC to immediately cease all such unconstitutional and demeaning practices especially as a member of the MACC advisory board, Datuk Mohd Noor Abdullah, a former Court of Appeal judge, yesterday stressed that a detainee’s fundamental liberty included being presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Mohd Noor Abdullah should find out from the MACC Chief Commissioner, Datuk Dzulkfli Ahmad whether the MACC proposes to immediately cease such demeaning practices, abuses of power and violation of the constitution, failing which he should requisition for an emergency meeting of the MACC advisory board to put a halt to such improper, unconstitutional and demeaning practices.
