How theatrical! When will Najib “order” police report against himself on the 1MDB scandal to establish his innocence?

How theatrical! When will former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak order his assistant to lodge a police report against himself on the 1MDB scandal to establish his innocence?

This will be the thought of many when they read news report of Najib “ordering” a police report against himself, so that the authorities can start investigating and establish his innocence of several high profile murders while he was in power.

I said yesterday that Najib is guilty of telling lies almost every day.

He has told another lie.

He said I have made “repeated calls” to the authorities to re-open investigations into high profile mysterious deaths.

Let me tell Najib that I had only once called for the re-opening of investigations into the high profile mysterious deaths like Altantunya Shaariibuu, Husain Najadi, Kevin Morais and Teoh Boon Hock after the Pakatan Harapan came into power in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 – and not “repeated calls”!

Najib’s theatrics remind of two other theatrical events. Read the rest of this entry »


Great news and fantastic breakthrough, Nie Ching!

Its great news and fantastic breakthrough, the announcement by the Deputy Education Minister, Teo Nie Ching in Kuching that stateless children in the country can now enroll in government schools beginning next year by merely producing their birth certificate.

Nie Ching said undocumented children still enroll themselves but they have two years to produce the necessary documents.

Apart from birth certificates, these children could produce either their adoption certificate if they are adopted or any court order.

It is estimated that there are about 300,000 stateless children under the age of 18 in the country.

The Education Minister, Maszlee Malik and the Deputy Education Minister Teo Nie Ching must be commended for resolving this very nettlesome problem, as in the past, it’s quite troublesome for them to enroll in government schools.

Teo’s announcement that the new policy also applies to them continuing their studies in secondary schools, allowing them to take public exams like the PT3, SPM, STPM is also be be applauded.

The great news and fantastic breakthrough announced by Nie Ching is the New Malaysia we want to build – a New Malaysia with greater compassion and more emphasis on human rights – after the historic decision of the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018.

Will Isa and PAS candidate lose their deposits in the Port Dickson by-election tomorrow?

The polling survey by Institute Darul Ehsan (IDE) on the eve of the by-election tomorrow is most interesting – not whether Anwar Ibrahim is on track to defeat his six opponents or Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan will sink to the bottom, but that the PAS candidate would only maintain its 11% of the votes in the 14th General
Election while former Mentri Besar Mohd Isa Samad would only garner 10 per cent of the votes cast.

If Isa Samad had not contested, and the bulk of the majority of UMNO votes had gone to the PAS candidate as conspired by UMNO and PAS leaders, then the PAS candidate would be able to retain his deposit in the by-election as PAS secured just short of 11% of the votes cast in the last general election (short of the 12.5% of the votes cast necessary to retain his deposit).

Many had expected Isa to do better than the PAS candidate in the by-election but the IDE survey shows otherwise, that PAS would maintain its 11% of the votes cast previously while Isa would get only 10 per cent of the votes cast, both forfeiting their deposits in being unable to get at least 12.5% of the votes cast.

This will have several implications. Read the rest of this entry »
