18 year-olds voting and standing for election, police who are friends of people and working towards transforming Malaysia into a nation of integrity are signs of New Malaysia-in-the-making

Fourteen months after the historic decision of the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 to save Malaysia from a failed, rogue and kleptocratic state, a New Malaysia is taking shape.

Three recent events showed that we are moving in a direction where 18-year-old Malaysians can vote and stand for elective office, police are to be regarded as friends and not bullies or oppressors of the people with the establishment of the Independent Police Complaint and Misconduct Commission and Malaysia is being transformed from a kleptocracy state into a leading nation of integrity.

The basic reason why Malaysia had lagged behind countries like United States, Philippines, France, New Zealand, Denmark, India, Hong Kong, Jordan, Pakistan, Morocca, Saudi Araba and Japan, which had lowered the voting age from 21 years to 18 years in past 48 years since I first raised the issue in Parliament in 1971 is because past governments were afraid of the youth, whom they regard as anti-establishment and anti-government.

The 12-day meeting of July 2019 Parliament ended yesterday with the presentation of the long-awaited Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) Bill.

The IPCMC bill is remarkable for three reasons: Read the rest of this entry »

Lenin, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-Sung and Fidel Castro will turn in their graves if they know of Hadi’s suggestion that socialists like Jawaharlal Nehru, Nelson Mandela, Clement Attlee, Harold Wilson, Willy Brandit, Olof Palme, Robert Hawke, Norman Kirk should join the pantheon of communist leaders

Berguling Lenin, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-Sung, dan Fidel Castro di dalam kubur mereka mendengar kenyataan Hadi yang menyamakan sosialis seperti Jawaharlal Nehru, Nelson Mandela, Clement Attlee, Harold Wilson, Willy Brandt, Olof Palme, Robert Hawke, Norman Kirk dengan pemimpin-pemimpin gerakan komunisme

Berguling pemimpin komunis seperti Lenin, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-Sung, dan Fidel Castro di dalam kubur mereka membaca kenyataaan Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Hadi Awang yang menyamakan mereka dengan sosialis seperti Jawaharlel Nehru (India), Nelson Mandela (Afrika Selatan), Clement Attlee dan Harold Wilson (UK), Willy Brandt (German Barat), Olof Palme (Sweden), Robert Hawke (Australia), dan Norman Kirk (New Zealand).

Takkanlah Presiden PAS sebegitu jahil sekali sehingga tidak dapat membezakan dua kumpulan pemimpin yang berbeza ini sehingga boleh menuduh yang pengisytiharan harta itu adalah satu konsep komunis dan sosialis yang dirancang oleh DAP.

Seperti yang telah dikatakan oleh Presiden DAPSY Saudara Howard Lee; Mesir, Maghribi, Palestin, Yaman, dan Libya semuanya adalah negara yang majoriti penduduknya beragama Islam dan pada masa yang sama mempunyai peruntukan yang mewajibkan pengisytiharan harta. Adakah negara-negara ini komunis ataupun sosialis?

Saya yakin Hadi tidak akan mengatakan yang negara-negara ini juga telah dipengaruhi DAP ataupun kini bukan lagi sebuah negara Islam kerana telah menjadi sebuah negara komunis ataupun sosialis — jelaslah ini menjadi bukti kecuaian Hadi terhadap kebenaran sesuatu fakta yang menjadi ciri utama kepimpinan Hadi dalam PAS dan pakatan PAS-UMNO/BN.

RM270 million 1MDB civil forfeiture suits against 41 individuals and groups a good and great start by Latheefa Koya as MACC Chief

The RM270 million 1MDB civil forfeiture suits against 41 local individuals and groups is a good and great start by Latheefa Koya as Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief.

This is the largest forfeiture action in the nation’s history, caused by the dispersal to the 41 respondents from former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s personal AmBank account.

The immediate response by the acting UMNO president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan that UMNO will fight the civil forfeiture suits in court is showing to Malaysians the real kleptocratic colours of UMNO, that the curse of kleptocracy is not just the transgressions of one person but the fault of the entire UMNO leadership – and even the previous Cabinet!

Is Mohamad Hassan and the UMNO leadership claiming that the 1MDB scandal, which is being investigated in 10 countries, and for which banks in foreign countries had been fined and closed and bankers in foreign countries had been convicted of money-laundering crimes and imprisoned, was just a figment of imagination of the MACC?

As out of the RM270 million civil forfeiture suits, RM212 million (78.5 percent) was sought from Umno divisions, is the UMNO leadership prepared now to admit to the reality of the 1MDB scandal which made Malaysia a global kleptocracy and declare how it is prepared to co-operate with the anti-corruption authorities to purge Malaysia of the infamy, ignominy and iniquity of the 1MDB global kleptocracy?

Former Attorney-General Apandi and former Inspector-General of Police Khalid should be investigated for their role in the “Week of Long Knives July/August 2015” to establish the important principle of the supremacy of Rukunegara which must be respected by all key top officials

The former Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamad Apandi Ali and the former Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar should be investigated for the role in the infamous “Week of Long Knives July/August 2015” to establish the important principle of the supremacy of Rukunegara which must be respected by all key top officials.

Three key principles of Rukunegara, namely loyalty to King and Country, the supremacy of the Constitution and the Rule of Law, were undermined and assaulted in the “Week of Long Knives July/August 2015”, causing a great damage to the system of parliamentary democracy in the country.

This was the only occasion when the 2012 amendment to the Penal Code to create a new section 124B to a create a new offence that anyone carrying out , by any means, directly or indirectly, “any activity detrimental to parliamentary democracy” could be jailed to 20 years would have applied on all fours, but instead of invocation of Section 124B of the Penal Code against the principals undermining parliamentary democracy, these principals were allowed to “run riot’ in their conspiracy to undermine the supremacy of Rukunegara.

It is the undermining of these key Rukunegara principles during the “Week of Long Knives July/August 2015” which led to Malaysia suffering the infamy, ignominy and iniquity of being condemned by the world as a global kleptocracy.

Malaysia must be respected by the world for our integrity but in those infamous years, we were condemned by the world for our kleptocracy. Read the rest of this entry »

A MACC report had been lodged by a former anti-corruption agency officer in January 2016 against Apandi as the then Attorney-General for clearing the then Prime Minister Najib of corruption charges but to date, no action had been taken

It has come to my knowledge that a former anti-corruption agency officer had lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in January 2016 against the then Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamad Apandi Ali for clearing the then Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak of corruption charges but to date, no action had been taken.

This former anti-corruption agency officer had lodged a report with the MACC against Apandi after he cleared Najib of corruption charges which had been recommended by the MACC and agreed upon by the former Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail for the Penal Code offence of criminal misappropriation of public funds.

His report had been accepted by the MACC and registered. Unfortunately it was never fully investigated by the MACC.

This in itself is an offence under section 217 Penal Code which says that, any public servant who is statutorily bound to perform a public duty and fails to do so intending to protect or save any person from punishment or forfeiture of property commits an offence. And Section 7 of the MACC Act makes it a statutory duty for any MACC officer to receive any report of the commission of an offence and investigate such report.

This former anti-corruption agency officer said that Apandi’s press conference on 26th January 2016 in his capacity as Attorney-General clearing Najib of any corruption offence, which was not only against the recommendation of the MACC but also tantamount to revoking the decision of former Attorney-General Gani Patail, amounted to a gross abuse of power and conflict of interest since the very person he cleared of the corruption charges was the same person who appointed him to the office of AG.

Mahathir has presented Latheefa Koya one of her greatest challenges as MACC Chief – to ensure that both the kleptocrats and sharks are brought to justice in the next two years of her contract

Mahathir sudah memberikan salah satu cabaran terbesar kepada Latheefa Koya sebagai Pengerusi SPRM — untuk memastikan kleptokrat dibawa kemuka pengadilan sepanjang kontrak dua tahun beliau yang mendatang

Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad telah mengamanatkan salah satu cabaran terbesar buat Latheefa Koya — untuk memastikan kesemua kleptokrat dan kaki rasuah dibawa ke muka pengadilan dalam tempoh kontrak dua tahun beliau.

Apabila ditanyakan di Jasin, sama ada kerajaan berhasrat untuk menyiasat peranan seorang bekas perdana menteri dan beberapa bekas pegawai kerajaan berpangkat tinggi dalam Minggu Pemecatan Besar-besaran yang berlaku pada Julai/Ogos 2015, Mahathir menjawab, kerajaan buat masa ini tidak mempunyai tenaga kerja yang mencukupi untuk menyiasat semua individu daripada pentadbiran yang lepas yang disyaki terlibat dengan rasuah.

Kata Mahathir:

“Kita dapati kerajaan yang telah ditewaskan tersebut dipenuhi dengan mereka yang melakukan jenayah, tapi buat masa ini, kita tidak boleh untuk fokus kepada mereka semua kerana kita tidak mempunyai tenaga manusia yang mencukupi.

“Buat masa ini, kita fokus kepada kes-kes yang amat serius, seperti kes (bekas) Perdana Menteri yang menyebabkan banyak wang daripada Kumpulan Wang Amanah Pekerja (KWAP) hilang.”

Saya telah menyatakan harapan saya sebelum ini, seperti mana yang kita dapat saksikan dalam tahun pertama Kerajaan Pakatan Harapan — para kleptokrat yang diketuai bekas Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak disiasat dan didakwa atas tuduhan rasuah — tahun kedua Kerajaan ini akan menyaksikan kaki rasuah yang lain dibawa ke muka pengadilan.

Lessons from ruckus over Latheefa Koya’s appointment – importance of constantly building trust among Pakatan Harapan leaders and the need for PH leaders to reaffirm commitment to the PH Manifesto as the Road Map to a New Malaysia

Pengajaran daripada kehebohan pelantikan Latheefa Koya — pentingnya untuk kita terus menguatkan kepercayaan di antara pemimpin Pakatan Harapan dan perlunya untuk Pimpinan PH memperkuatkan komitmen untuk menjadikan Manifesto PH sebagai panduan pembentukan Malaysia Baharu

Dua pengajaran penting yang dapat kita belajar daripada kekecohan mengenai pelantikan Latheefa Koya sebagai Pengerusi Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) adalah:

Pentingnya untuk pemimpin-pemimpin Pakatan Harapan untuk terus-menerus meningkatkan kepercayaan di antara mereka, dan

keperluan untuk Pimpinan Pakatan Harapan kekal komited dengan Manifesto Pakatan Harapan sebagai panduan dalam membina sebuah Malaysia yang Baharu.

Seperti yang telah diperakui ramai, pelantikan Latheefa Koya sebagai Pengerusi SPRM adalah terletak di bawah kuasa yang diperuntukkan kepada Perdana Menteri dan ianya selari dengan peruntukan undang-undang.

Pelantikan Latheefa juga tidak dipersoalkan daripada segi kelayakannya.

Isu utama yang timbul berkaitan pelantikan ini adalah percanggahan dengan Janji ke-14 Manifesto PRU 14 Pakatan Harapan yang menyatakan: “…menaikkan taraf SPRM kepada sebuah suruhanjaya yang diiktiraf oleh Perlembagaan Persekutuan, iaitu sama seperti kedudukan Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya Malaysia”; “SPRM akan melapor terus kepada Parlimen, dan bukan lagi kepada Perdana Menteri”; menambah bilangan pesuruhjaya SPRM dan seorang daripada mereka akan dilantik menjadi pengerusi, dan “Pelantikan Pesuruhjaya-Pesuruhjaya SPRM perlu disahkan secara demokratik oleh Parlimen”.

Shukri’s stepping down as MACC Chief Commissioner highlights what he said about the genesis of the Week of Long Knives in his “Tell All” press conference last year which should form the basis of police investigation on the former Attorney-General Mohd Apandi Ali

Mohd Shukri Abdull’s stepping down as Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief Commissioner highlights what he said about the genesis of Black
Tuesday on July 28, 2015 and the “Week of Long Knives” in July/August 2015, which should form the basis of police investigation on the former Attorney-General, Tan Sri Mohd Apandi Ali.

In his “Tell All” press conference in May last year after he returned as MACC Chief Commissioner, Shukri broke down when he recounted his time running away from Malaysian authorities to the United States.

This was after his former boss Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed decided to indict former premier Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak for his kleptocracy.

Shukri said when Abu Kassim asked him if he was prepared to face the consequences of taking action against a sitting prime minister, he replied that he was willing to take the risk in order to serve the country.

However, he claimed that on the day Abu Kassim wanted to charge Najib, the then attorney general Abdul Gani Patail was removed from his position, and this was followed by a cabinet reshuffle.

Amid this, Shukri left for Washington on July 31, 2015, to raise the 1MDB issue, but had deliberately released misleading information that he was headed to Saudi Arabia.

According to him, there were people waiting to arrest him in Jeddah, and he was tailed in Washington. Read the rest of this entry »

Would Najib agree that in orchestrating Black Tuesday of 28th July 2015 and the Week of Long Knives, he was guilty of the most detrimental acts to parliamentary democracy in Malaysian history?

Adakah Najib bersetuju, dengan merancang Selasa Hitam 28 Julai 2015 dan Minggu Pemecatan Besar-besaran, beliau bertanggungjawab dalam melakukan satu perbuatan yang paling merosakkan kepada demokrasi berparlimen dalam sejarah Malaysia?

Mantan Perdana Menteri Najib Razak berasa tidak senang apabila saya menggelarkan beliau sebagai seorang penakut.

Berikut adalah apa yang saya katakan semalam:

“Najib berkata semalam bahawa saya tidak mempunyai sebarang kredibiliti langsung selepas menolak jemputan berdebat dengannya.

“Mengikut logik Najib, dia tidak berhak langsung untuk membuka mulut selepas kehilangan semua kredibilitinya setelah melarikan diri daripada perdebatan “Nothing-to-Hide” dengan Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad berkenaan skandal 1MDB, memalukan dirinya di persada dunia dengan menarik diri dari memberikan ucapan pembukaan Persidangan Anti-Rasuah Antarabangsa (IACC) pada September 2015 yang dihadiri oleh ribuan delegasi daripada lebih 130 negara, dan bertidak untuk keluar daripada wawancara bersama dengan Mary Ann Jolley yang disiarkan Al-Jazeera pada Oktober tahun lepas, suatu insiden yang amat memalukan. “

Adakah Najib bersetuju, dalam kesemua empat situasi ini, beliau adalah penakut yang sebenarnya? Jika tidak, mengapa?

Sedangkan menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Najib sendiri yang telah mengumumkan kepada delegasi IACC pada 16 September 2015 bahawa Najib telah menarik diri daripada persidangan tersebut atas nasihat menterinya kerana beliau takut ditanya soalan sukar daripada 1000 delegasi yang hadir.

Investigate and charge Najib for “Week of Long Knives” for Penal Code offence of “activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy” or repeal the criminal provision altogether

It shows the extent of the delusion of some Opposition leaders that they believe and hope that there will be a snap general election, when there are no signs whatsoever why the Pakatan Harapan Government in Putrajaya should not serve out its full term.

The Pakatan Harapan government is stronger today after having weathered its first year, which unexpectedly, had to be focussed on draining the swamp – and what is most shocking, was to discover how horrendous was the swamp that was left behind by the UMNO/BN Government.

Although the task of draining the swamp is not fully done, the second year of Pakatan Harapan Government in Putrjaya should be better than the first year in terms of delivery of Pakatan Harapan pledges to create a New Malaysia.

It is not possible to undo the corruption, abuses of power and deviations caused by six decades of UMNO/BN government, as it cannot be accomplished in a hundred days or a year but a mission which will take years and even over a decade. Read the rest of this entry »

Let first year of Pakatan Harapan Government be the year of the kleptocrats and the second year be the year of the sharks in the war against corruption

The objective of the new Inspector-General of Police, Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador, to eradicate corruption in the police force is a very tall order and he deserves the support of all right-thinking Malaysians, as the police had been regarded as among the most corrupt of all government departments.

In July 2017, the then Home Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi said that the Royal Malaysian Police was acknowledged as the best in ASEAN, but this international recognition was not the general Malaysian perception. He estimated that only 20% of the public were positive about the police.

Zahid’s claim in 2017 that the RMP was acknowledged as the best in ASEAN was not borne out by the 2017 Global Corruption Barometer (GCB) study released by Transparency International in February 2017, based on a survey of 16 countries in Asia-Pacific.

The 2017 GCB found that the 60% of the respondents from Malaysia felt that the level of corruption in Malaysia had increased, which was higher than the regional average of 40%; 62% felt that the government was handling the fight against corruption in government BADLY, as compared to the regional average of 50%.

“Malu Apa Bossku” campaign violates Rukunegara, a challenge to National Anti-Corruption Plan 2019-2023 and obstacle to the national mission to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy into a leading nation of integrity

Kempen “Malu Apa Bossku” bertentangan dengan Rukunegara, mencabar Pelan Anti Rasuah Kebangsaan 2019-2023, dan halangan kepada misi transformasi negara daripada satu kleptokrasi global kepada negara berintegriti yang terulung

Sejak beberapa bulan sebelum pilihanraya kecil Sandakan pada 11 Mei yang lalu, cybertrooper bekas Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak telah bertungkus lumus menjaja satu tema baru — cukuplah bercakap mengenai skandal 1MDB dan kleptokrasi Najib, Pilihanraya ke-14 sudah selesai dan biarkan mahkamah yang tentukan sama ada Najib bersalah atau tidak, sebaliknya, mari lihat apa yang kerajaan PH telah berjaya laksanakan untuk menurunkan kos sara hidup dan mereformasikan institusi negara.

Januari tahun ini, cybertrooper Najib telah memulakan kempen “Malu Apa Bossku” tanpa sekelumit rasa malu sekalipun dan yang malang sekalinya kempen ini telah berjaya menawan sebahagian tertentu rakyat Malaysia. Lantas membolehkan gabungan UMNO-PAS, dengan sokongan belakang tabir MCA dan MIC di semenanjung Malaysia, PBS dan parti pembangkang lain di Sabah, dan GPS di Sarawak, untuk menjaringkan tiga kemenangan di pilihanraya kecil Cameron Highlands, Semenyih, dan Rantau.

Fenomena “Malu Apa Bossku” juga telah memberikan galakan kepada ahli parlimen pembangkang untuk menyekat perjalanan Rang Undang-Undang Pindaan Perlembagaan untuk Perkara 1(2) Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang merupakan langkah pertama yang penting dalam melaksanakan satu daripada lima Janji Teras Pakatan Harapan dalam PRU14 “mengembalikan status Sabah dan Sarawak kepada sepertimana yang dipersetujui dalam Perjanjian Malaysia 1963”.

All Malaysian institutions of higher education should aim to produce useful and patriotic citizens of Malaysia who are committed to the ideals of united, just, democratic and progressive society where there is integrity and respect for human rights

I believe that all Malaysian Institutions of higher education should aim to produce useful and patriotic citizens of Malaysia who are committed to the ideals of a united, just, democratic and progressive society where there is integrity and respect for human rights.

For this reason, all institutions of higher education should follow closely national developments which will pursue these goals.

One such development is the launching of the National Anti-Corruption Plan (NACP) to tackle corruption in the country for the next five years by the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad yesterday.

Two tasks for the 450 DAP Councillors to build a New Malaysia – to establish a clean and incorruptible culture of service and to be a force to promote understanding, tolerance, unity and harmony among diverse races, religions and cultures in Malaysia

I am somewhat surprised not that we have a retreat for local councillors, but that we have quite a large number of some 450 local councillors in the country – apart from the 42 DAP Members of Parliament and 119 State Assembly men/women in the country.

DAP has come a long way since our puny establishment 53 years ago, and it is important that the present generation of DAP leaders, in particular the DAP Ministers, Deputy Ministers, Members of Parliament, State Ministers and Exco and State Assembly representatives as well as the 450 local councillors should never forget where the DAP came from and where we want to go – the DAP came from ordinary Malaysians regardless of race or religion and our common objective is to help build a just, clean, free, democratic, united and prosperous Malaysia.

The battle against kleptocracy must be widened to include not only the kleptocrats but also the “enablers of kleptocracy” to ensure that the culture of integrity strikes deep root in Malaysia in our journey to transform a global kleptocracy into a leading nation of integrity

The New Year of 2019 has only entered into the fourth day but it is pregnant with meaning for Malaysians who want to see the culture of integrity strike deep root in Malaysia in our journey to transform a global kleptocracy into a leading a nation of integrity, with the battle against kleptocracy widened to include a war not only against kleptocrats but also against the “enablers of kleptocracy”!

It is good to see that a top MCA leader has acknowledged the existence of “enablers of kleptocracy” in a media statement dated 1st January 2019, although the MCA leadership has still to pluck up sufficient political courage and patriotism to acknowledge that the ignominious chapter in the nation’s history where the country was condemned worldwide as a “global kleptocracy” was because MCA Ministers and leaders became “enablers of kleptocracy”, aiding and abetting former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Datuk Seri Najib Razak in the monstrous 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal and other 1MDB-line scandals in Felda, Felcra, Tabung Haji and MARA.

Diversion of 30 per cent or any percentage of school allocation for any political purpose is sheer corruption and not permitted Pakatan Harapan practice but belongs to Barisan Nasional era of the past, and must be exposed and rooted out and individuals concerned punished according to the law and sacked if he holds any political office

Since 7 pm yesterday, the Sin Chew street edition had carried a shocking front-page expose of compulsory diversion of 30 per cent of school allocations in Muar allegedly by a special officer of an elected representative.

The diversion of 30 per cent or any percentage of school allocation for any political purpose is sheer corruption and not permitted Pakatan Harapan practice but belongs to Barisan Nasional era of the past, and must be exposed and rooted out and the individuals concerned punished according to the law and sacked if he holds any political office.

There can be no compromise with such corrupt practices and those who are guilty of such corrupt practices, regardless of which Pakatan Harapan party they are from, must be prosecuted to the hilt without any mercy.

In the spirit of “zero tolerance for corruption”, all who had aided and abetted Najib in his kleptocratic rule must apologise to all Malaysians in the next three days if they are not to carry the cross of “enablers of Najib kleptocracy” into the new year

In the spirit of “zero tolerance for corruption”, which must be the trademark of the “New Malaysia” after the historic May 9, 2018 decision for a peaceful and democratic transition of power in Putrajaya, all who had aided and abetted former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak in his kleptocratic rule as illustrated by the monstrous 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal and the other 1MDB-like scandals in Felda, Felcra, Tabung Haji and MARA, must apologise to all Malaysians in the next three days if they are not to carry the cross of “enablers of Najib kleptocracy” into the new year.

Those in the frontline who aided and abetted the monstrous crimes of kleptocracy in the Najib premiership, the enablers of Najib kleptocracy, are foremost the Ministers in the Najib Cabinet, the Members of Parliament in particular the Speaker of the 13th Parliament who helped Najib to suppress the 1MDB scandal and Najib kleptocracy from being debated in Parliament, and the Barisan Nasional political leaders who had received 1MDB funds from Najib.

They have three days to make a clean breast of their past as enablers of Najib kleptocracy, and to declare and demonstrate their regret and contrition for not standing up to the crime of global kleptocracy and failing the nation – or they will carry the cross of being enablers of Najib kleptocracy into the new year.

Apology to Wee Ka Siong – I did not realise his intellectual capabilities and standards are as low as other MCA leaders

I must apologise to the MCA President, Datuk Seri Dr. Wee Ka Siong as I had not realised that his intellectual capabilities and standards are as low as the other MCA leaders.

When I lamented on Tuesday that the national education curriculum needed an overhaul as it was producing political leaders “who do not understand a simple statement, reading what is not there at all”, I had not included him in the category.

Last Thursday, I had said in Luoyang, Henan that the DAP will never become MCA2 as DAP leaders will not be as spineless as MCA leaders and that DAP will not hesitate leaving the Pakatan Harapan coalition government if the objective of New Malaysia was abandoned.

I observed in Kuala Lumpur on Christmas Day that my Luoyang statement sent the Opposition into sixes and sevens, feeding on their fevered imagination, with a PAS leader trying to provoke the DAP to quit Pakatan Harapan, while one MCA leader urged the DAP to “”grow a backbone” to exit the government and another MCA leader “hit the jackpot” and unconsciously condemned all MCA leaders with the statement that DAP did not qualify to be MCA2.

Pakatan Harapan leadership must set the New Malaysia example to show commitment to the objective to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy to a leading nation in integrity

The exodus of four Members of Parliament, two Senators and nine State Assembly representatives as well as division heads in Sabah from UMNO on Wednesday created shock waves in the whole country.

Questions raised include whether this is now the season of party defections, this time from UMNO to other political parties.

But the most important question is not about UMNO, but about Pakatan Harapan, whether it has lost its commitment to fight corruption and all forms of abuses of power which has degenerated under the Najib premiership to stratospheric level so much so that Malaysia becomes the laughing stock of the world and is condemned worldwide as a global kleptocracy.

Najib’s kleptocracy main reason why Malaysia trailed far behind Qatar in the annual Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index (CPI) in the past nine years

Nobody is surprised that former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, has given his full backing to the anti-International Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) rally today, as Najib is trying to create history and to be the first global kleptocrat in 1,500 years of Islamic history to be able to make a comeback to the pinnacle of political power – whether again as Prime Minister of Malaysia or as de facto leader of UMNO and the UMNO-PAS axis, overt or covert.

What a world of a difference between the Sheikh Tamin Hamad Al-Thani International Anti-Corruption Excellence Award yesterday and the three-day 16th International Conference (IACC) held in Putrajaya just three years ago. Read the rest of this entry »
