KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Police are investigating Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s wife and three others for taking part in a rally where the politician claimed he was close to toppling the government, a party official said today.

Anwar’s wife Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who is the president of his People’s Justice Party, and three other party members were served early Tuesday with notices to report to police for investigation of illegal assembly, said Tian Chua, a senior party official.

He said the notices stemmed from a Monday night rally. Tens of thousands of supporters gathered at a sports field to hear Anwar give his first public speech since last month’s elections and to celebrate the end of a ban on him holding political office.

Police abruptly halted the rally midway through Anwar’s speech, triggering loud jeers from the crowd. Police said the rally was illegal because Anwar’s party did not have a permit, which is needed for gatherings of more than four people.

Chua said the party members did not plan to report to police Tuesday as the notices demanded, and that they would “find another appropriate date.”

“Today is not an appropriate time. We have other work,” he told The Associated Press.

Police declined to comment on the investigation.

Anwar told reporters after Monday’s rally that at least 30 lawmakers from the ruling National Front coalition had agreed to defect to his side, enough to topple the government.

But he said he was in no hurry to bring down the government because he would need more than a wafer-thin majority in Parliament to carry out the wide-ranging reforms he planned for the country, including cleaning up the judiciary, ending corruption and ensuring racial harmony.

“Now I can say for the first time that we are ready to govern the country,” Anwar said. “We have the numbers … but we are not in a hurry.”

“We will only enter when the majority is comfortable,” he said without indicating when that would happen.

The former deputy prime minister spearheaded a three-party opposition coalition known as the People’s Alliance to spectacular gains in elections last month, winning an unprecedented 82 of Parliament’s 222 seats. The alliance also won control of legislatures in five of Malaysia’s 13 states.

The election results reignited the Anwar’s political career. Political pundits have said Anwar’s ambition is to become prime minister, a post that once seemed within his reach when he was deputy to former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad in the 1990s.

However, Mahathir sacked him in 1998 in a power struggle. Anwar was expelled from the ruling party and convicted of sodomy and corruption — charges he said were politically motivated.

He was released from prison in 2004 after the sodomy conviction was overturned, but the corruption conviction barred him from holding political office until April 15, 2008.

Anwar could not contest the general elections because of the ban. But he was expected to contest a by-election to gain entry to Parliament, allowing him to challenge Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi who is under pressure from factions within his own party to quit.

Abdullah has said he will eventually hand over power to his deputy Najib Razak, but not immediately.

    Ah ha. So the IGP is worried he`ll be investigated when a new Govt is formed.
    Well, that AG Gani Patil also should know what his future is going to be.

    Invitation to Dang Wangi? “Dang” btw, also means ‘Exclamation of annoyance’, somewhat similar to ‘damn’. Damn irony, looking at it from the punny side.

  3. wits0 says:

    Under new management, the rules of the Damn Wangi Health Spa are bound to change for new eligible members.

  4. Are the police going to ISA them.
    Well less MPs and MB for BN to confront

  5. Shrillarity says:

    Karpal Singh once told IGP to `go back and put on his thinking cap`.
    Poor fellow is still looking for his cap. Mugabe would like him I think. Water cannons for the Hindraf boys has not been forgotten. But in Kg. Baru he dared not try the same tricks. In Penang when UMNO was rioting after the GE also he dare not.

  6. Harrison bin Hansome says:

    Every dinner of any political parties ended up with political speeches. To defy opposition parties to speak is just like driving to carwash centre without
    having it vacuumed (that is if you are an opposition member). I notice every BN leaders or MPs made political specches at any functions. I don’t think they needs a Gestapo permit. 🙂

  11. Mohd Arshad Raji says:

    PDRM boys is back to its ‘scary tactics’. With the ‘Dollah Government’, they have become experts at it. But have failed miserably at curbing crimes that have now become rampant. Mr. IGP, please get your priority right.

  12. donplaypuks says:

    dare we hope that the honourable I Raja Polis & Polis Raja M’sia in their new and blazing uniforms (wonder who got the direct contract for that one)will also investigate and charge the BN gathering organisers in Pennng & Shah Alam & the PM (Chairman of BN) for ‘illegal’ gatherings where mystreiously, water cannons and 1 million Polis raja were not present?

    all the non-BN political should take I Polis Raja & Polis Raja M’sia to court for bias in implementing the law and misuse/abuse of power. there’s no other way to resolve this issue since the polis are supposed to be neutral, but clearly favour the ruling party, even when they break the law.

  13. Brutha says:

    Until today no action taken against Najib and Kerismuddin for sedition. Even Badawi in today`s papers is warning all these BN monkeys about that.

    But IGP masih lagi tidor. Looks like he is trying to bring down the PM by not taking action against Najis, Ku Li, Toyol, Khairy etc etc

  14. Engdau says:

    It’s clearly shows that our country is still not stable after the national election. Our opposition parties do not stop there. They have big motive behind. To be frank, why the police “invite” them to Dang Wangi? The ppl, I believe do not like all riots among the politicians and those supporters.

    We want a peaceful country. If we support Anwar as our future PM, can we get extra single sen? I doubt so. I personally don’t like the bad tactics used by the opposition parties to pursue those BN politicians in East Mal to join the oppositions. We all the Malaysian don’t like it. In fact, it’s dirty politics.

    What BN should do is…. Get ready to combat. PM Badawi, I feel that you are too slow to react. No wonder ppl said you are “lembik”. If BN doesn’t know how to “jaga” his ppl, all these ppl will be definitely “moving” towards Anwar’s side.

    Conclusion, if we support Anwar, what can he do to build a better tomorrow for all nation in Malaysia? Think wisely.

  15. Alex The Great says:

    Its a waste of time and public money to investigate.

    There are so many pressing things that they should investigate like top echelons’ gang gang corruptions, crimes, tens and tens of millions terbang to nowhere. They never set their priority right.

    I hope the top cops dun do something that have no returns or no U turn as we dun know who will be the next new boss in the short few weeks.

  16. oster says:

    Notice the ominous use of words such as “topple” and “bring down” when it comes to these governments.

    Everyone knows the stereotype of Malaysians being suckers for perceived stability, and the usage of these words may have an adverse effect one way or another.

    But in any case, all legislation have (ideally) logical justifications behind their formulation and when these justifications fail, the the law shouldn’t need to be enforced unnecessarily.

    In this case, there was no evident harm and this not only invalidates the need for any arrest, it highlights the inherent fallibility of the police and how they shouldn’t be given absolute and arbitrary authority to determine the legality of gatherings.

    Mahathir Mohamad telah memerangkap Tengku Razaleigh untuk membuka tirai – dengan mesyuarat agung tergempar – untuk mengetepikan Abdullah Badawi. Untuk entah ke berapa kali Razaleigh Hamzah telah dijadikan batu loncatan oleh Mahathir Mohamad. Razaleigh adalah perwakilan politik lama – politik era Tungku – politik ‘ the British clubby gentelman’ – di mana setiap kata adalah untuk di kota.

    Era dan zaman itu telah lama selesai. Kita sekarang dalam era peralihan dari zaman gelap ke zaman cerah. Bahayanya, Mahathir Muhamad inginkan kita rakyat Malaysia kembali ke zaman gelap, ke zaman ketakutan adan ke zaman autokratik. Justeru, Mahathir Muhamad sedang merancang untuk menobatkan Najib Razak.

    Buktinya: Tiga tahun dahulu ketika Hari Raya dan Deepavali berjalan serentak, seorang insan yang mengakui dirinya sebagai ‘ ilmuwan Islam’ telah mengeluarkan ‘fatwa bahawa orang Melayu/Islam TIDAK boleh berkongsi Deepavali degan penganut agama Hindu. Kenyataan yang kononnya fatwa ini telah di sambut dan di sokong oleh Najib Razak.

    “Conclusion, if we support Anwar, what can he do to build a better tomorrow for all nation in Malaysia? Think wisely.”

    i would like to answer that question with a question: if we were to agree to retain the government of the day, can they provide better care to us? 50 years having the power to rule the country, in what position we are now? how about corruption? abuse of power? mismanagement? poverty eradication? do they provide free education to our children? do they put rakyat’s welfare as their utmost priority?

    Don’t worry, I’m sure DSAI will not come after you…..he has only one target and we all know who!

    Or maybe not, I think DSAI just wants to move on and not wasting time on the scum of the society!! Guess who plundered the nation for 22 years!

    On the timing which you have observed, they had to get the go-ahead from the AG as to how the case would proceed. In other words the AG office is guiding investigations by the police to ensure that a conviction is certain.

    police double standard at work again!! remember the umno protest (mostly by mamaks) on 14 march which was led by the ex DPM, umno penang chief and a few other umnoputera – it was an illegal gathering but none of them was hauled up… even just for questioning, also no!!! grrr!!

    What the Police did to Dr Wan Azizah and three others was uncalled for and unnecessary. The action is tantamount to harassment and a waste of fruitful and productive hours.

    How I wish the Police is doing the same thing to the BN gatherings. If you treat others differently, then you are plain biased.

    The purpose of the rally is important. It is not a rally to foment a riot nor is it uesd to incite the people against anyone or the country or the government. What is the crime?

    Why did you not put your big boss behind bar then when he inflicted grievous hurt on Annuar Ibrahim – the infamous black eye?

    Come on, police. You have more important things to do – fighting to reduce the crime rates and adjusting all the traffic lights according to traffic volume. Go after the big the king pins, drug traffickers, etc
    and avoid bullying the down-trodden and the small men in the streets.

    Just cannot stand ridiculous actions of people with such low mentality.

    Mr.IGP…the people of Malaysia cant even be safe in his own home. Day and Night we pray that no one breaks into our homes. Just a few weeks ago, 7 guys armed with parang and kapak barged into my uncle’s home..injured the old man and ran away with a lot of stuffs. Gandhiji said ‘ A Nation is Independent ONLY if its people can walk safely in the streets at night’ ! THE RAKYAT are NOT safe in this country……….where are YOU and YOUR men?? Instead of seeing to our safety………you roam to look for innocent people to be questioned and arrested. HOW ETHICAL ? Harapkan pagar…..pagar makan padi ! Many little girls and boys are missing…your men say, We Are Working On it….but we dont see any progress. Crimes are sky high in Malaysia…Criminals well planned crimes beat the Police Force in this country. Are you not ashamed ? Instead you sent your men to question Dr.Wan and PKR members. Why……have nothing better to do? SO MANY crimes….so many criminals out there. Do your job……..stop being the BN’s watchdogs. Keep us safe……..otherwise give way for a better IGP to take over ….Mr.Christoper Wan ,maybe !……….and on your way out ,take the dum dum AG along !……….

  32. kl says:

    Utterly sickening to bear witness to these sort of blatant biasness from the PDRM. I’ll bet no MB from BN’s side has ever had to go to the police station for an ‘interview’ . The prostituting cops will be groveling for an appointment at the MB’s office if they ever had the need to ask them anything.

    The fourth floor is crumbling. The domino effect is sure gonna happen. Someones’ marbles is now moving up to their throat.
    Of course Black 14 is the tremor that may hasten the domino effect.
    So Datin Seri Wan Azizah will be their only motive to soften the tremor?
    Nahhhh, they were not officially invited to the dinner cum RPK’s 35th wedding anniversary.
    They are doing the “SAI LANG” (Last call..lose or win).

    Antares, forgive Engdau Rompin – he is just like one of those kidnapped child who clings onto their captors. They grow attached and dependant, brainwashed untill submission.
    Speaking of kidnapping, hey Policemen Dang Wangi – where are all our kidnapped children? Start working for us rakyat instead.
    Susan, can you find out Who made the police reports?

  36. If the police continue to act in such a high-handed way and blatantly impartial manner, the number of MPs who are willing to hop (presumably these are those who are want transparency, justice & good governance) won’t be 30 but 60.

  43. Silver Surfer says:

    I am certainly displeased with the Police’s double standards where enforcing the law of assembly is concerned. I think we have moved beyond 1969 – 1978.

    Unfortunately, the usual response will be – Its their job. They have to enforce the law. Under their present bosses, these one-sided application of law – though personally distateful to most police personnel – has to be carried out to save theirs and their master’s arse. if not, they could be accused of of not doing their job in future.

    What really needs to be done is a change of government to review the many arse-hole laws and procedures so that the “kaki-tangans” have no excuse to say they are just following rules; just doing their job. I know when there is no climate of fear, tact and discretion-of-the-day have been
    intelligently applied by most employees. It is when the top is politicised that the Government’s delivery machinery breaks down.

    I have observed that in KB most surprisingly during my first time visits there, the administration of public services there are efficiently and effectively executed, and with a human touch as well! There is still much honesty and sincerity and a sense of fairness pervades. As a management expert, I think I am qualified to say these. The standard of administration is better there than in many parts of Malaysia. Responsibilities are taken seriously, and the morale of people there are generally high.

    Coming back to the issue of enforcingthe law on public rallies, I am apt to say the only people who will create trouble are UMNO youth and their hired goons. If the police are really professional, they should really have an eye on these people.

    I hope for the day soon when the Police is no more politiciised and compromised as a professional force by political parties. Whether its AAB, WA or AI, best of luck to improving the Police force.

    Haven’t you lot have gotten the point already? We don’t give a damn about race. We voted you in so all Malaysians regardless of race can benefit from your leadership. So stop being small- minded and work together. All Malaysians are born equal. So anyone in Malaysia should be able to hold any post in politics regardless of race, religion or creed. It’s not about racial representation. It’s about fixing this country’s problems.

    Perhaps one day in the future, the Malaysian prime minister will be an Indian or a Chinese. There should be nothing wrong in that, for he will be a prime minister for all Malaysians. Or perhaps our non-Malay Malaysians have to move overseas before they stand a chance of becoming a prime minister. Perhaps then, we can sit around and gape in awe about another Malaysian making it big overseas while we resign ourselves to our fate over a cup of teh tarik.

  46. Alex The Great says:

    I m dead sure its not the cops.

    Its the instruction from the top

    Never mind; do more of this and you will get it in the next GE.

    Malaysian now remember, bukan lagi senang lupa

  47. The police, like their BN master, will never learn. They think they are more powerful than the highest law in the land, the Constitution, which allows for freedom of assembly, just because the Police Act – which by the way is ultra vires the Constitution – says otherwise.

    One would have thought that they had other much higher priorities to deal with, like the alarming rise in the crime rate, instead of getting involved in political matters under the guise of “keeping the peace” when they are the ones who provoke and attack any peaceful public gathering.

    As far as I am concerned, the credibility of the police, just like that of the BN, now is ZERO. That goes for the IGP, the AG and all their minions as well. Not necessary to say anything anymore about the egomaniac ex-PM or the sleeping moron PM or his hyperactive Oxymoron* SIL.

    Anyone who wants to be a part of that cabal of absolute corruption and misgovernance will sooner or later lose all credibility as well.

    They have been advised, warned and chastised by t he people in the last general elections and still refuse to listen. They have no defence or justification left except their greed and lust for power and money and that can and should be used against them in all courts of law in the land, and especially in the court of public opinion.

    Anwar is fundamental to change the mindset of the Malays who are the majority of the population, where many are still brainwashed into supporting the evil UMNO blindly, and Anwar is the key to hold Pakatan together especially with the problem of the ever troublesome PAS!

    Anway, I’m so sick of the double-standard of the police force. Instead of protecting all rakyat and promoting justice, it’s unjustly and barbarically busy promoting the political interests of UMNO! Sick! Sick! Sick! I can’t express it enough! So Umno supporters can hold protest anytime such as the last one in Penang and Ipoh (I thought the police promised to arrest the leaders!) and, the coming United Malay Congress in JB, but it’s pathetic and so unjust that other rakyat who don’t agree with UMNO’s dirty politics are being arrested including under ISA (such as the brave Hindraf leaders who are even tortured), threatened and silenced!!
    Further more, not only the police force and special branch is swarmed by extremely sadistic-macho and sexist, fascist and racist idiots; it’s also so corruptible. I was even informed by a SUHAKAM officer that a victim complaint that he was beaten up by the police officers, who even boasted that gangsters are recruiting into the police force so that they can ensure their fellow criminals can get away! Plus my own cases; where I’ve made countless police reports and instead was given a run-around by the police every time, especially as I’m a woman at that! I’ve brought all the complaints against the police force with SUHAKAM; but never heard from the supposedly Human Rights Commision again (what do you expect; when it’s run by supporters of the ruling politicians!). And, the increasing sexual crimes against Malaysians especially women and children; do these police force care?! Well, two of their fellow officers from the nasty special branch dept, are on a (strangely dragging on & on) trial for murdering and most probably raping Altantuya (since she was blown up naked?!); so can we expect justice form the police then? Besides, most female officers are low-ranking ones; and the force is dominated by Malays; thus why we have such sexism and racism besides (of which the force should be multicultural instead)! And the reason why the foreign nationals especially from violently sexist-macho countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia (especially from the dominant Javanese culture – they behave similarly in Indonesia towards other races especially from non-Islamic religion) and Nigeria, where all these foreign nationals are committing crimes including sexual ones (that include sexual harassment and brutal rape) and have no respect for local women and custom including in East Malaysia, are laughing all the way and getting off scot-free; since they could either easily corrupt the police or are just following the nasty examples set by the police force! And unfortunately and tragically, our own Malaysian younger generation are following all these nasty examples!

    Only one month after BN trashing, they are back to the normal bullying days. This intimidation is simply unacceptable. How can BN think the Rakyat can constantly being bully into submission. We no longer fear this abuse. We reject such act. Those were the days. Wake up before you sleep walk into your own shit holes.

  50. Devan says:

    Our Police are so biased towards BN, Suggest PR should increase their salary so as to enable them to solve the numerous unsolved cases…too many to be revealed here! But they are quick when it comes to Hindraf,Bersih etc. If its UMNO….the water cannons seem to malfunction and time is given for them to be heard….hahaha pure biasness.
    Come on Mr IGP. if u cant give us a safe place to stay in Malaysia. I propose u step down and let others get on. SEND the FRU to the streets and check crime there!
    By the way what happened to the reports made on Shah Kirit????? Is he related to someone in BN??????

  51. What a shame, the Police has to meddle when the gathering was peaceful. Let Anwar has his day. After he was almost murdered while political custody.

    Please help yourself by sticking to real police duties to enforce other laws to stop petty crimes and other crimes… but not protecting BN from losing power.

    Allow more freedom for Malaysians to interact in proper decorum in politics. BN are allowed to attacked Opposition parties everyday, in every function without police permit. To be fair, IGP also should invite them to DANG WANGI also to explain why they always blame the Opposition when BN has all the power to help the people properly like I did when I was in BN. I didn’t have to stop the Opposition from using any facilities or do any gatherings, but I still had the highest majority in rural areas in 1995 general election using the least campaign money. Of course I got sacked from BN instead.

    Come on just do your work and stop politicking, BN leaders. Stop harassing the Police to do the dirty work … you will lose more votes in the future..

    I hope PDRM will also take action against the people who “organised” the illegal rally (but mainstream media called it ‘perhimpunan aman”) against Penang CM Lim Guan Eng, early this month.

    There were at least 1500 noisy people who distrupted traffic and business was also closed.

    So lets see if PDRM has the “GUTS” to go after this “UMNO hooligans”.
    And also pls go after those who had rally against the Sultan of Terennganu during the recent “MB Crisis” in Terengganu.

    By the way, I am still waiting when “Khairy Jamaluddin” will be charged for illegal rally which he organised and led during the visit of US Secretary of State, Condoleza Rice.

    Hope PDRM will “tutup satu mata” in all this cases. But then again it clearly shows PDRM indeed does “tutup satu mata”.

    Well so much for a “fair” PDRM. Well looks like the Next General Election..BN will be wiped out totally………….at least now only 5 states, i think the GE13 ….PR will take over the entire peninsula….if this is what goes on.
    PDRM is Body which should be “apolitical”…but from their “selective” investigations…one can say…PDRM works for BN.

    Police brutality shall never be forgotten. Learn what had happened in Iraq. More so the Jews traced the Nazis till the end of the world and are still searching for them. Then we see frusted people are willing to sacrifice their lives to become mobile bombs.

    Do not sew the seed of hatred among the people. It can bloom and grow. We don’t want to be another Iraq, Pakistan or Southern Thailand. Surely there are people who recorded every event and waiting for the right time to hit back and hit hard. We pray such things will not happen.

    As many have said the police should concentrate on combatting crimes. Do not forget the recent 3.5 million heist, the uncovered missing children, the daily petty thieves etc. When people pointed out at the illegal assemblies by UMNO, I think they are not emotional. They are talking facts.

    Let us believe in God for once. I never expect PAS to rule Kedah and never in my mind non BN parties can rule Malaysia. I never expect some good UMNO men to lose. But when it happens I immediately said to myself, it’s God will. So are the people in Police force, if God’s willing they will fall too.

    Let not the Police been as UMNO, PAS, PKR or PAS. It is easy to say ‘we are just doing our work’. But people observe and put two and two together. So was the Thai authority’s action in Southern Thailand. They said ‘We are just doing our work’.

    On the other hand public must be fair to the police and Pak Lah. Not all police officers are autocratic and brutal. Pak Lah is not autocratic either. You have to study the doings of TDM carefully and scientifically to compare the difference.

    Our problems to be solved are a. Tolls b. Corruptions c. Drugs d. Crimes e. Missing children f. Daily robberies and murders g. spiral inflation h. Election frauds

    Whatever the police can do, then do it effectively and sincerely. People will cooperate if police is seen as clean and honest, unbias and non-political.

    The purpose of the Police is to keep peace and to safeguard our security. The Police have done their good part stopping brother Anwar Ibrahim from continuing his speech and disperse the public. I should praise Anwar that he stopped and the public dispersed and that (stopping) is not a weakness on the part of Anwar. The battle is not between Anwar and the Police. It is the support of the people that matters and the moral high ground that Anwar stands. We Sarawakians are looking forward to Anwar.

  58. james says:

    Dear Alhaj

    You don’t get the bloody point. The big question/issue is
    double standards (not whether the Poice are doing their job or not). Why did they not do the same in Penang-lah, Pak Cik?

  59. wits0 says:

    In fact, by permitting the Penang Demo to proceed did nothing for both the repute of the police nor helped the race relationship there. The public has been urged not to boycott Mamak shops but the fact is that in the prior past the Mamaks were behind things such as the Kuan Yin statue protest and the Kg. Rawa incident as well. The least the police could have done recently was to show the same strictness it shows elsewhere. It failed to and there is some anger in the public consciousness resulting in the call for boycott.

I presume it is political motivated as the PRDM is under the jurisdiction of the Home Affairs Minister which is none other than the “kojak”.When BN holds a rally, no need to have permit whereas opposition parties-you need to have one or else this thing happens.Gosh! it really stinks to the core.

    Once Anwar or Pakatan rakyat become the government, it should replace the police so that duties will be carried out impartially. Not only should they ensure independent judiciary.

    Until today umno are still fighting with malaysian.Talk about ketuanan melayu,what is so great about championing the ketuanan melayu.?

    I dont really sees such issue crop up by normal malay which doesnt get any penny other than entering university without merits and end of the day they are jobless.maybe a bit return in peanut throu amanah saham.Other than that umno championing ketuanan melayu just like hiding behind the mask of ketuanan melayu and cheat the malays for their pockets and their cronies.

    For the immigrants with bumi status from indonesia,what actually they contribute other than sending more money to indonesia.They are like parasite,sucking our money out.We do pay them for their work but they not even loyal to their employer.Do you all think they will be loyal to Our country Malaysia?

    We pay agents to bring in maids,end of the day they ran away and become illegals.We report to immigration and police.The employer tender bond forfeit by immigration.We malaysian is still born loser,and the indonesia maid still in the country working with another employer with higher salaries.Why this happen?

    Just because the police fails to arrest the illegal workers and the employer who hire them without going throu and pay for the levy and agent fees.The police close both eye for $.

    Every seconds the police force is not proffesional in their work.corrupt and follows the order of master of the day UMNO.Umno is highly corrupted,so what else to comment about their servant (police).U scracth my back and i scratch yours.Thats the game of umno and ketuanan melayu.

    nor aza,

    Interesting and do follow up your comment sometimes.Very painfull comment to whom its may concern.I wonder are you the pure bred malay and muslim?The mamak want to be malay and sell their dna indian and you are fighting like wild tigger for all malaysian.SALUTE TO YOU.

    The police can’t even find the 5 year old girl nor have the guts to arrest the Mat Rempits ,The IGP is a big empty vessel,but then again,what do you expect from the goverment servant ,he is a servant .Like a dog which wags its tail when the master is around,Musa obediently works for and beside Bodowi. He is blinded by all the BN regime corruptions ,the BN leaders who robs the nation and plundered the country for ages. The billions that were stolen from the country financial instituion,goverment funds,the public’s money,Petronas money…. the list goes on… but the police do not find anything wrong in this,while this bandits are robbing the nation in broad daylight.

    The speed the police and enthusime shown is incredible in Wan Azizah case. The opposition party when they come into power,will be D-day for the crime-busters, their days will be numbered,in order for that not to happen, they will somehow finds ‘crime’ commited by the opposition which will harm the country’s safety. Lets hope a new goverment is formed by Pakatan Rakyat in the next few months to run this country. Then,will decide if PR is worthy to continue ruling the country.

Now, with their new act on PKR president and others, this time, hopefully, all the Sabah, Sarawak and Peninsular BN MPs will all cross over to PAKATAN RAKYAT, creating a SECOND TSUNAMI. They never learn, don’t they?

  73. kok says:

    The special position of the malays as prescribed under Article 153 of the Constitution is limited in scope to only the reservation of reasonable quotas in these 3 sectors: public services, educational places and business licenses.

    Hence, the present rampant racial discriminations practiced on almost every facet of our national life are mostly violations of the Constitution. Examples of these violations are:

    (a) Racial discrimination in the appointment and promotion of employees in publicly funded bodies, resulting in these becoming almost mono-raced bodies. These bodies include: the police, civil service, army and various semi and quasi government agencies.

    (b) Imposition of compulsory share quota for malays in non-malay companies.

    (c) Imposition of compulsory price discounts and quotas in favour of malays in housing projects.

    (d) Completely lop-sided allocation of scholarships and seats of learning in clearly unreasonable proportions that reflect racial discriminations.

    (e) Blanket barring of non-malays to publicly funded academic institutions (that should include the Mara).

    (f) Barring of non-malays from tenders and contracts controlled indirectly or directly by the government.

    Our Constitution provides for only one class of citizenship and all citizens are equal before the law.

    The presence of Article 153 does not alter this fact, as it is meant only to protect the malays from being “squeezed” by other races by allowing the reservation of reasonable quotas on certain sectors of national life.

    However, this Constitution has now been hijacked through decades of hegemony of political power by the ruling party to result in the virtual monopoly of the public sector by a single race.

    The ensuing racism, corruption and corrosion of integrity of our democratic institutions have brought serious retrogression to our nation-building process in terms of national unity, morality, discipline and competitiveness of our people.

    i couldnt believe what i heard or seen… probably one of the most shocking revelation i have come across so far. I didnt know b4 but Now, i understand why suicide bombers exist.

  75. fong says:

    As a post-independence-born Malaysian, I would like to offer my thoughts on Article 153 of the federal constitution which mentions the special position of the malays. Please note that there is no mention of the words ‘special rights’ or ‘special privileges’ in the constitution.

    For too long, there has been a lack of understanding of what our forefathers had in mind when they included this clause in our much talked about social contract. To gain a better understanding, let us take a trip back in time to 1957 to actually visualise the scene then.

    In a scenario where the immigrant Chinese and Indians were seeking citizenship rights in Malaysia, it is reasonable to presume that they would have had to understand and acknowledge the difficulties faced by the majority malays.

    And this is where the meaning of the words ‘special position’ comes into focus. What did our forefathers mean by the special position of the malays? Did they mean that the malays would have special rights and privileges in perpetuity? Did they mean that the malays would enjoy a higher status than all the other races?

    If this is what our forefathers had intended, then our constitution would have mentioned this specifically. However, the social contract or constitution does not say so.

    What then, could the words ‘special position’ mean? It is reasonable to infer that our forefathers were concerned first by the fact that the malays were left behind economically despite being the indigenous majority in the country.

    Secondly, they were concerned by the fact that, despite being immigrants, the Chinese and a small segment of the Indian community were relatively much better off.

    The clause was therefore more so of an acknowledgment by the non-malays of the disadvantageous economic situation of the malays. The consideration given by the former to the latter when entering into the social contract for citizenship rights was agree to provide some measure of support for the malays to improve their economic standing.

    If our forefathers had meant for these preferences to last in perpetuity, then there would not have been a request for a review in 15 years.

    When I see the compulsory requirement for non-malay companies to hand over a certain portion of their equity to the malays for no input at all, I am tempted to ask: Is this what our forefathers had in mind? I can go on listing the abuses forever because there are plenty of them.

    It is intriguing to hear senior Umno and BN leaders repeatedly asking the people to adhere to the social contract. What contract they are referring to? It cannot be the federal constitution. It is most probably some contract that they have entered into unilaterally without the agreement of the non-malays.

    So it seems to be incorrect to firstly equate the words ‘special position’ with ‘special rights and privileges’. Secondly, it also seems incorrect to suggest that the malays have special rights and privileges in perpetuity and therefore, that they have a higher status than everyone else.

    The non-malays only agreed to allow them preferences over the others for a finite period of time. It has now been almost 50 years since independent but has such a meaningful review of those preferences taken place at all? Absolutely not.

    In fact what has happened is that successive BN governments, dominated by Umno, and especially after the 1969 tragedy, have taken the liberty to very liberally interpret Article 153. This has led to the wholesale abuse of the consideration provided by the non-malays in 1957 for their citizenship rights.

    It seems to me that the real social contract of 1957 was torn up long ago by the BN government with the way in which the NEP was implemented from the 1970s onwards.

    To me, the real social contract of 1957 has long been dead. I hope the day will come when the people of Malaysia in the true independent spirit will make it live again.

    Then perhaps, we would not have to spend hundreds of millions ringgit on nonsensical projects like the National Service to inculcate unity amongst the races.

  76. San says:

    I have mentioned in the past that NEP is not constitutional and has extended its period beyond what has been planned to be necessary. 20 years has passed, but greed has set in.

    Greed to benefits only a few and not the poverty stricken Malaysians. An affirmative policy that helps the poor regardless of race is needed.

    I have also demonstrated that India has Muslim presidents despite being 80% Hindu. Similarly, in Australia there are Asian mayors. In America, New Zealand and many countries, top positions are for the capable not based on race or religion.

    Now, let us not sweep all discussions under the carpet with the term Article 153.

    Article 153 should always be interpreted together with Article 8 that all Malaysians must be dealt with fairly and treated as equal.

    While the positions of the malays are respected and their heritage not forgotten, they are not meant to be the guardians of toll and wealth and collectors that usurp all money, oil and some natural resources till it is left dry.

    It is important we publish this, so we do not just shiver when we hear Article 153, and begin to think of greedy ways to gain from another or use it to put down another races.

    Article 153:

    (1) The quotas reserved must be reasonable and the reservation of licences and permits for malays and natives must be of such proportion as may be deemed reasonable.

    (2) The scope of the reservation of quotas is only with respect to positions in public service, scholarships, and other similar educational or training privileges accorded or given by the federal government.

    (3) The special reservation of quotas must not affect the rights of other communities.

    Apart from the provisions allowed under the abovementioned Article 153, all citizens of Malaysia must be treated as equal. This is clearly provided for under Article 8 of the Federal Constitution.

    Article 8:

    (1) All persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law.

    (2) No public authority shall discriminate against any person on the ground that he is resident or carrying on business in any part of the federation outside the jurisdiction of the authority.

    (3) There shall be no discrimination in favour of any person on the ground that he is a subject of the ruler of any state.

    NEP: It will destroy the Malaysia.

    We must demand these changes and the power is with the people. We must go against a corrupt government, a fanatic religious social structure and not accept crime rates and the NEP. We need to change Malaysia and the social structures that are not relevant for Malaysia anymore.

    We need to free ourselves from these chains that make our lives not worth living.

    We are leaving in the millienium years.The year is 2008.We have space programs venturing to different Obits and Planets.BUUUUUUUUUUUUT
    We have still have the same mentality kampungan in our Country.Let me tell you a Joke.
    There was once a Barisan Leader who died and when to see the Chief angel who was guarding the Gates of Heaven and Hell. The angel ask the Leader:- You have a bit positive of good and the rest are all negative. So he said I will let you visit Heaven and also Hell.
    So the first,day he was shown heaven. Everyone was dress nice/nicefood/peaceful. Just enough for everyone. No more or no less. Everyone was happy and worshiped the living God.
    Than he was taken back.
    Day 2. He was in Hell. The street was with Nice Expensive Cars.Mansions and Beautiful Sexy Women. Abundance of Food/Drinks and ETC. And there was a nice Handsome Gentlemen taking them around for Holidays/Golf and all other things.
    The Barisan leader was happy and enjoyed his day.
    He when back to the Chief Angel- Gate Keeper.
    So Sir ask the angel , which of this 2 places you choose?
    Hurriedly , he said Hell !Hell !. I choose Hell.
    Poof and he was back in hell.
    This time it was furnace and fire. People screaming every where.They were being tortured.
    He panicked and than saw the Handsome Guide who took him around yesterday coming towards him.
    He asked, What happen where are all the Good Things /Cars/Mansion /Women.???

    Than as he was looking at the Man , he changed to be the Devil!! And the Devil Said. Oh , Semalam Kita Kempen sahaja, Jadi Kami bikin Jalan Baru semua baru. Ini kita buat untuk dapat Keahlian YB. Sebab sini banyak YB.
    Hari ini selepas Kempen, kita balik semula kepada yang asal.
    Tempat ini- Neraka nama nya. Welcomeee YB…..

    The moral is:- Till the last moment this people refuse to change. Greed will always overtake them.
    And the Truth is what it is at the END.

    If Anwar is to be the NEXT PM. He will be!!! Kueh Mak Sarah Sarah, What ever will be will be……….

  96. After the election in the top UMNO meetings, it was reported the the IGP always attended. Why the hell did this guy who is not a politician invited to these meeting, only God knows?

    Apparently, the BN never learns,its back to the good days where any smell of dissent is being clamped down hard. And this inspite of what AAB had exhorted his people to be less arrogant and to understand the Rakyat more. Its back to his old sombulent-self, not walking the talk, only shitting out rubbish.

    So Rakyat! We know what to do. Come next election, unless if God willing, AI will take over the Govt before then, we will vote out BN into the dustbin of history.

  97. It appears some ‘unseen’ hand is at work. So to jump on te throat of the police though inevitable, is also not right.

    Perhaps, the poltically connected should step forward and blow the whistle. Only then can Malaysians put this ‘unseen’ hand to permanent rest.

    Otherwise, it is only going to stick this nation in further mud. Whoever that ‘unseen’ hand is, surely has much to protect and would seemingly go to any extreme to have it his/her way.

Pakatan Rakyat must take the lead and direct the nation on the right track, BN has mislead the people and the country for ages,we should show them the exit door and close it for good in the next 13GE.

    UMNO has usurped the PDRm to the etent it is but an extension of their Party. Just like the Judiciary also. Throw in the Armed Forces and the Rela, this is what you call a totalitarian State.

    Malaysia started out as a country with with quite a respectable of educated citizenry. Unfortunately, the Dictator Mr Mahathir and his goons have “raped” the country to make it beholden to him and UMNO.

    He thought that as “josef Stalin”, he was more poweful than the creator and that the lives of people were his to use as he liked. Unfortunately he thought wrong. Mr Badawi has a mind of his own. He was not his to putty around. That’s why he preferred Najib.

    The faster Mr Mad-hatter’s legacies are undone, the better for us citizens of Malaysia.

    Mr Badawi faces too much reistance in UMNO. That’s why the quicker PR is in as the ruling goverment of the day, the better.
    Then we can expect a thorough spring-cleaning of the s**t and rubbish legacies left behind by the Mad-Hatter and removing the mafiosi from our systems!

    Then the Police, Judciary, the Civil Service, the local councils, etc., all get back to doing their job as professionally as they can.
