Sometimes I think ministers and politicians treat Parliament as their comfort zone, or their safe haven. After all, they have immunity for saying controversial stuff there.

It’s very easy for a PM-in-Waiting to go on a CLEAR-MY-NAME campaign before he actually assumes his premiership as Parliament is not like the courts. There are no prosecutors, no defense lawyers, nor are there any lawyers doing a watching brief, like Karpal Singh.

Yes, people are the judge in Parliament. And there are lots of prosecutors there in the name of Opposition MPs. But there is only so much one can do in Parliament. You have to wait hours before you get your turn to speak or ask questions. I know, I’ve seen how things work there.

I would like to see him say these things in a FREE, FAIR AND CREDIBLE court of law. I am sure he would be asked to show proof, or there would be evidence brought before him. He would be cross-examined. He would definitely have to take a oath. He would be asked to show his travel log. And the mystery of the missing photo would most certainly be pursued.

He would most certainly be asked who ordered his two bodyguards to drop the bomb on the Mongolian lady…and  a host of other questions…but that is…if you have a FREE, FAIR and CREDIBLE court.

But this is feaudalistic Malaysia. Don’t you think that ministers or politicians can get away with just about anything by saying… “I have never met the said woman… ” ?

    “FREE, FAIR and CREDIBLE court” – we will never have in this country!

    The VK Lingam tape controversy is indeed frightening and will take Malaysians a long time to get over this episode.

    He won`t say it in court he`s afraid of that `picture`. Then he`ll be found guilty of perjury and have to go to Sg. Buloh and become a gardener.

    Najib has no confidence in our courts. He ‘should’ know!

  5. amoker says:

    It is funny that this is the 3rd week that the same line is used again and again. His PR chap should do with a bit more work by not making it so predictable.

    What he said about government not paying third party for the contracts maybe ‘true’. But, does the 2 companies that receive the contract pay Malaysian 3rd party companies kickbacks? If not, how does Primekar come into the picture ( who is paying them to provide the service?)? And dun tell me that the 2 foreign companies are not binded by the quantum and selection when the contract is negotiated. I agree with Susan that if this is a court, he will be grilled and these Public Relations crap will come out as it is truly, a false statement.

  6. hutchrun says:

    Malaysia’s government-influenced newspapers have mentioned Najib only reluctantly in connection with the case, merely printing that he had sworn before Allah that he had never met the woman.
    [ ]
    Yet Abdul Razak, the alleged instigator and the victim’s former lover, was a close friend and political advisor of Najib’s until the time of his arrest – so close that Najib wrote the foreword to one of Abdul Razak’s books. There is abundant evidence that despite Najib’s protestations that he never met Altantuya, he and Abdul Razak, probably accompanied by the translator, were in France together at the same time in 2005, perhaps dealing in a shady transaction that netted Abdul Razak a fortune. The murder itself was allegedly carried out by Najib’s personal bodyguards. A friend of the victim testified that she had seen a picture of Najib with the ill-fated couple, yet the court showed no interest in seeing the photo.

    The cyclone nargis swept in the August House
    Hard hitting on the chairs turning upside down
    The speaker only listens to the rendering songs
    “All Tanya, all Tanya, I never know you”

    The cyclone nargis deals direct
    Coast to coast; land to land
    Government to government
    It cracks its strong wind
    Impunity nobody can touch

    No commission to plant trees
    The land lays bare the shaft of ray heat it up
    Only the smoky vapor rises to the sky
    “All Tanya, all Tanya, are you sure?”

    The cyclone nargis stops
    Look at the destruction on the ground
    The speaker smiles waving his hands
    The sharp tail wind sweeps one last round
    “All Tanya, all Tanya, why don’t say it in court?”

    The cyclone nargis turning around
    Bare its fangs roar like a hunted bear
    Thundering the August House
    Putting its marks on the walls
    “All Tanya, all Tanya, why explain it here?”

    The cyclone nargis sweeps through
    Out through the leaking roof to the sky
    Leaving its marks of unsettled truth
    All Tanya, all Tanya, you can’t just disappear you know?”

    The shadow will follow
    Nobody knows when it will strike
    The beauty of God ways
    We sing His Grace all the time

    RM534.8 million commission for Scorpene submarines – why Perimekar?

    The pathetic explanation given by the Defence Ministry regarding the purchase of the Sukhoi SU30MKM fighter and Scorpene submarines raises more suspicions than answers.

    The public is not concerned with the laborious explanation regarding the negotiations carried out by the Defence Ministry neither are they interested in the approval levels and the checks by the technical and price committee.

    What the tax paying public is interested is why was the contract awarded to Perimekar to prepare support and coordination services for six years. The contract value was 114.96 mil euros(RM534.8 mil) to be paid in stages according to the level of progress of the project.

    What kind of support and coordination services that Perimekar can provide that the Defence Ministry is not capable of providing?

    be fair to all..inorder to avoid contemptuous let’s wait until after the judgement. most probably najib will sue whoever has been slandering him..as he said he didnot or will not contemp the court or intefere with the trial.

    parliament is the most honorouble place to speak and making false statement, slander, accusation based on hearsay through internet and sms actually actually cowardise.

    certain group prefer to quake through blogs or websites behind pseudo name .. overlimit freedom will bring the country down end of the day people will suffer.

    i salute BN they have never made any false accusation, slander against anybody. unfortunaly younger generation love fiery speeches, full of made up stories… where malaysia heading..to see the future of country we have to see what kind of youth we have today so to speak. if fiery speches, racist is preferred then it is doomed.

    Afraid of digging out too much rubbish and rubble

    aaiya this man now talking this fellow that fellow corrupted.

  24. hutchrun says:

    Remember how the Lumut Naval base project by Amin Shah went bust and the Defence Ministry had to step in and take it all over. Meanwhile, the money had left already.

  25. hutchrun says:

    who started money politic in umno? – ismail

    You talking of tengku razaleigh or mahathir or daim or anwar? (note all names are not in caps)

  26. ismail says:

    alo hutchrun why dont u make police report let police investigate what kind of support and coordination services rm534.8m. common brother do it professionally.

  27. ismail says:

    not razaleigh or mahathir.

  28. Maverick says:

    Why don’t you appear in court and tell the truth and shame the devil. In this way everyone will be relieved of the allegiation hovering above our heads. Do it now before another invasion of the Mongols and Tartars.

    Haha. Make police report and join the hindraf5? You crazy or what? I prefer to join you and see things get messier before they get better. Meanwhile, I`ll also shout and rave and rant as much as I like – best part is you can`t stop me.

  34. ismail says:

    i am wondering where he gets so much money from ! bribing millions to bn parliamentarian from before 1998 until now the total can hit into billion. i am happy to be a poor man.

  35. hutchrun says:

    Maybe Najib is funding him to get Badawi out. But Badawi too has lots of money these days. Must be lot of Foreign investment coming in thru his SIL – you know the international finance expert Khair. Or could be the other way round too.

  36. ismail says:

    no no he built the fortress and planned to topple mahathir in AGM if mahathir failed to handover the helm to him with the but failed bcos he was fired.

  37. hutchrun says:

    Aiyah itu semua we know lah. You are right. Now is 2008 and darling najib is ready to grab.

  38. ismail says:

    from reliable sources the money came from jews and his contacts in usa. bcos israel never liked malaysia due to their attempts to establish diplomatic relation unsuccesful.

  39. hutchrun says:

    Of cors it`s the Jews`. They hold shares in all the banks (it`s known as FIC – ask khairy he`s an expert) and major companies. When UMNO send out these delegations promoting FIC the first people they go to are those dirty jew financiers. Even Mahathir used to do it. His son used to work with Salomon Smith Barney the advisors to the M`sian Govt in 1998 currency crisis.
    See they tell us one thing and do another.

  40. hutchrun says:

    I`m sure Najib`s brother has some dealing with jews – after all he`s heading CIMB.

  41. hutchrun says:

    Oh looks like Najib also has a `thing` for Jews:

    Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak said Monday the government will review the ban in the case of the Chelsea pair.

    “It would be a pity (if) politics get into the way of sports,” Najib said. “I will have to study the situation first, but I would like to see Chelsea, even though it’s not my team, to play here … it’s good for local football.”

    Malaysia allowed Israel to play in an international cricket tournament here in 1997, but it led to demonstrations by Muslim groups. Some 60 percent of Malaysia’s 27 million people are ethnic Malay Muslim.
    ________________________________________________

    Najib is also playing pucks with muslims.

    hutchrun – many malaysians will still be voting BN, you know. Regular readers here know the local politics, not so with majority of the malaysians.

    It’s sad, isn’t it?

  44. hutchrun says:

    In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king. Ever seen Badawi`s eyes – they are usually half closed like.

  45. Wong says:

    yes hutchrun, it is sad….for instance, most of my colleagues highly educated but none understand what is ‘malaysian for all’…….didn’t know that petronas belong to rakyat, etc

  46. hutchrun says:

    Haha not surprising when Badawi thinks it belongs to him.

  47. wits0 says:

    Never mind what the alleged majority vote, Wong, for our part, vote with our conscience. I never voted BN, and never will. Over the decades it seems more Melayus are telling me that umno tipu. I knew that from 513 ; and one gets disillusioned when rather young from that experience itself whilst before one has a healthy belief in the system despite its flaws. It was really a pity that Gerakan and MCA were not completely demolished in the GE 12. But I guess their pathetic rumps can only self destruct soon enough.

  48. donplaypuks says:

    Dear Susan

    While I agree that something stinks mega in the Altantuya trial, you must not be naive.

    No person who has NOT been charged in court with murder has ever gone to court to prove his innocence. Even in a libel cases, the respondent will ask the other party to prove their slanderous remarks or pay damages. I don’t need to preach to you about the presumption of innocence under the law. It would be extremely naive of anyone to think that Rosemajib will go to court to testify ‘I did not give the orders.’

    Ask yourself, if the shoe were on your foot, would you go to court?

    Equally the AG will NOT ask Rosemajib to testify since the thrust of his case is that Azilah & Sirul were the only killers. And we know that he will never implicate Rosemajib.

    What the defence should concentrate on is widening the circle of the guilty party to the man in the ‘Suzuki Vitara’ which may lead to Rosemajib’s door. This they can do by clever cross-examination. Then, perhaps they can subpoena Rosemajib to come to court and testify whether he gave any orders, if he met Altantuya etc etc.

    But, following the DSIA episode where the ex-AG trapped him after advising him to make a police report, Rosemajib will never follow that route.

    But, keep up the pressure. There is nothing like persistent people power and action to put the dynamite up law enforcers & politicians’ a..e!!

  49. How much of the commission went to Najib ?
    Razak is only Najib’s front man on this and other commissions must have gone to his brother (trust no one else) in the investment of the CMIB. Surely someone with his family back ground cannot afford to be involved in the investment of a big Bank like CMIB. On many occasions he arranged for his brother to go close to the P.M. right ? Even to sit next to the P.M. on the same dinning table. Why?

    How many Politicians -none (except the Mamak in a Bank in Europe) would dare to implicate themselves so openly in such a large investment under their name. His family’s back ground does not justify him, his wife or even his brother’s involvement. I think if there is an ACA then it should look into this! But the question is is there an ACA in Malaysia ?
    That is the reason why he has authorised his body guards to kill and even C4 to be used. The P.M. knows this issue very well and is holding him at it for his support and to shut his mouth on many issues. No doubt he is concerns that Razak will leak the truth to protect himself but the turncoat Najib this is one time you are caught and no one except the court can protect you. Turncoat waiting to be the next P.M. fat hope, better start looking for a place to run and hide with all the commissions you have taken, Anwar is coming and not even the court can protect you ?????

    I did not have sexual relations with Miss Lewinsky…..

  51. Anti-Najis says:

    Yes. Najib was right. Govt did not pay the commission. It was the sellers who paid the commission. However, maybe he should know that the prices of our ‘arms” would be a lot cheaper if the sellers do not need to pay the commission or send our astro-nut to space. Also, our Sukhoi jets are the most expensive in the world. Do search on prices of Sukhoi paid by India, China and some other countries and compare. Also, some of PAS’s proposals are good. I love to see some handless, headless (if they survive), penisless and legless “ex-ministers”.

  52. […] alamat blog. Dengan ini, Kerajaan dengan mudah telah memantau kewujudan penulis blog daripada menulis penulisan yang boleh menggugat kestabilan politik individu pemimpin tertentu, lebih-lebih lagi UMNO yang bakal berdepan dengan ujian pemilihan pemimpin tertinggi […]

  53. ah long says:

    You people still don’t understand the concept of “conflict of interest”.

    In any other country, Najib will be sacked and charged for abusing his position. The minister of defense cannot own the company that receives such a big commission on a defense contract.

    It does NOT matter who paid the commission, the buyer or the seller. It is still illegal in most countries for the person or persons making the decision to receive a commission.

    The truth of the matter is, did Malaysia buy the best submarines or did Malaysia buy the submarines that paid the best commission.

  54. Khairy Kemulutin says:

    Dear Mr. Najib,

    Do you mean as a Defence Minister, you don’t know who issued the C4 for blowing up the poor Altantuya?

    Do you mean, the superiors of thse 2 UTK personnels cannot account and verify who gave them orders?

    Do you mean the UTK personnels do as they wish?

    There are so many unanswered question even though it is in court now. Maybe nobody ask the right questions? Dare not ask. Don’t know how to ask?

    No wonder Malaysia has so many thing not accounted for, money, resources, power, land, etc.

    Full of abuse and misuse. We are a country without shame. Surely God is looking at the people and power to humble and correct their wayward ways.

    Like RPK observed in jail, those two goons still think that the VIP can influence the court and let them walk free.

    I think Malaysia will hear one hell of an uproar if they walk free. I think the VIPs have no choice but to make those two goons carry the can and everyone else walk free.

    What do you people think? If that is the case you think those two idiots will sing or not?

    OR maybe throw RPK in jail, murder those two idiots and tell the public RPK killed them…..in Malaysia everything also boleh.

    Hi Susan,

    On Naguib, the Dp PM. Do not worry too march on that SCOUNDREL. Our Great Raja Putra Kamaruddin forsaw one to two years ago that Naguib will not be the next PM. Subject to correctiuon, I have NOT heard or seen that Anwar would not by the PM by our Great Raja. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    2. Like his father who stole the PM ship from the greatrest Tunku Abdul Rahman, who hates the Chinese in particular, I tend to agree with Raja although supported by Pak Dolah, that his Deputy will be the NEXT PM. Even if Anwar is not ready to form the Parliament by this year, September, 2008, and Pak Dolah continue to rule, his Deputy will WITHOUT DOUBT BE SCREWED BY Pak Dolah. The world knows Naguib is PRESENTLY playing a DOUBLE HEADED SNAKE.

    3. Naguib’s opponents without stop MUST continously screw him and continue exposing Naguib’s corruption. Where is the photo Naguib with Altanluya? Was it a fake photo? I am sure there were much evidence of him with the murdered Mongolian lady, Comtinue your good work, Susan.

    Who says they will get the death sentence? I expect the DPP to change the charge to manslaughter (or womanslaughter) where there is no mandatory death penalty. Those 2 robots will be found guilty and happily go to jail for a few years. Why happily? Because when they come out, they can retire in luxury without having to work another stroke in their wretched lives.

    As for RB, he will be found not guilty. I don’t believe he’s guilty anyway but that’s just my personal opinion.

    So who ordered the robots? Irrelevant! The court doesn’t want to know.

    You think our Malaysian judiciary can’t pull this off? After what they did to Anwar, this is just chicken feed. The outside world can protest la…so what?

    But foreign investments will bypass or flee the country. With a rotten system where they can’t get justice in case of dispute, why would they want to invest here?

    Ahli parlimen PKR kecam latihan komando

    Seorang ahli Parlimen PAS mendedahkan klip video yang menunjukkan kaedah latihan skuad komando yang menurutnya menjatuhkan maruah para anggota yang mengikuti latihan tersebut.

    Bercakap dalam sidang akhbar di lobi Parlimen, Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (PKR-Macang) berkata, beliau menerima klip video yang menunjukkan jurulatih mendera secara fizikal anggotanya serta memijak-mijak kepala mereka.

    “Ini adalah soal maruah seorang manusia. Menteri pertahanan sendiripun tentunya tidak mahu kepalanya dipijak-pijak begitu,” kata Saifuddin.

    Saifuddin turut mendedahkan klip video selama dua minit itu, dalam sidang akhbar tersebut. Kandungannya menunjukkan beberapa orang lelaki berpakaian hitam menyepak dengan kejam seorang individu.

    “Bila saya menerima klip ini, saya bertanya kepada beberapa bekas anggota komando dan mereka memberitahu tidak ada kaedah seumpama itu digunakan semasa mereka menjalani latihan dahulu,” katanya.

    Apa yang lebih membimbangkan lagi, katanya ialah para jurulatih tersebut nampak begitu gembira melakukan semua itu.

    “Adakah insiden ini telah dimaklumkan kepada perdana menteri dan apakah tindakan yang telah diambil?” soalnya.

    Saifuddin berkata, beliau menerima klip video itu minggu lalu.

    Beliau enggan mendedahkan sumbernya, dan menambah beliau juga tidak pasti di mana dan regimen mana yang ditunjukkan dalam klip video tersebut.

    Beliau bagaimanapun berkata, klip tersebut dirakamkan baru-baru ini, berdasarkan kepada pengesahan beberapa bekas komando bahawa uniform yang dipakai oleh anggota tentera itu merupakan uniform seragam yang baru dipakai oleh regimen komando Malaysia.

    Tiada jawapan dari Najib

    Saifuddin sebelum ini membangkitkan perkara tersebut dalam sidang parlimen Isnin lalu, tetapi tiada jawapan dari timbalan perdana menteri, yang juga menteri pertahanan Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak.

    Sebaliknya, Najib pula bertanya kepada Saifuddin sama ada beliau pernah melihat kejadian seumpama itu sewaktu menjadi setiausaha politik kepada menteri pertahanan pada tahun 1990-an.

    “Saya tidak pernah melihat apa-apa pun seperti ini sebelum ini walaupun saya pernah menjadi setiausaha politik,” katanya sambil menambah, beliau mempunyai alasan untuk mempercayai ia memang benar-benar berlaku.

    Menurutnya, pihak kementerian perlu memberi penjelasan mengenainya kepada orang ramai kerana beliau tidak rasa mereka boleh menerima apa yang dilakukan itu.

    Najis ooo Najis.. If there is no issue about the submarine contract then what about NS then? What about the death of 16 teens.. I am starting to wonder what are your post as Minister of Defence do? Watching young teenager lost their lives during TRAINING!! And you still wouldn’t resign even with 16 deaths!! In other country if there were to happen such cases the Minister will take full responsibility and resigned from their post. (In Japan they might had performed the SEPUKU to end their own disgrace).

    Opps sorry if I had left out Altantuya, hehe… Najis please explain to me why you cannot defend yourself in court (you can even do Razak Baginda a favor as well hehe).. Dare u, Najis tells the RAKYAT that you doesn’t know/met the 3 suspects before? And why wasn’t the PDRM asking your cooperation to assist in the INVESTIGATION ? No right.. So you were the UNTOUCHABLES le right… I am wondering WHY

    Najib is so pity now…

    Not sure if he really involve or Badawi is the one who setup all the trap!

    More the reason we need Pakatan Rakyat as the Government. ISA should be abolish AFTER PR comes to power and get these UMNO idiots arrested under ISA and give them the same medicine. The 5 heros who were fighting for the Indians rights that were denied by the BN government rule by UMNO, were arrested under ISA . They were only asking to be treated
    as Malaysian and be given the same equal rights .
    Hindraf was one of the reason BN lost badly and yet they never learn. The 13 GE will be the end of BN history maybe even sooner then that. If all the MP’s can unite and get this act abolished ,it will be a turning point in
    Malaysian history. Lets abolish this !!

    I’m sure RPK will subpoena Najib as a witness , possibly as a hostile witness for his trial on the Sedition charges. I think RPK’s principal defense will be that what he wrote is true !

    On another issue, I’m wondering if the Malaysian Scorpene submarines will end up spending most of their service life at periscope depth.
    They certainly could’t dive any deeper in the Straits of Malacca, and almost all of the South China Sea between East and West Malaysia is less than 100 metres deep. Submarines indeed…

  83. wits0 says:

    Kittykat, any submarine operating underwater in the Straits of Malacca is easily visible by eye from the air. Submarines also easily becomes a death trap in an accident in the normal depths of the sea. Normally nations operating submarines have standby specialized rescue ships.

    Hmm…buy T92 tanks, no tank transnsporters(later kira?). Buy Sukhoi MK30 fighter jets without supporting AWAC planes(later kira).

    Submarines are good….. can smuggle in La Mer cream and caviar and not forgetting banglas who look like bollywood hunks for ms. piggy. hee hee

    Can someone in public service give a contract worth RM350 millions to a person who is so close to him and known to be working for him without an open tender?

    Where is the accountability?

  87. ktteokt says:

    “Credible court of Law in Malaysia”? That is the biggest joke after the Lingam case and after Dr. M admitted to doing Anwar wrong when he sent him to prison. Wonder whether Augustine Paul had nightmares all these years when his conscience haunts him and if he is still sitting in any of the courts in Malaysia passing “sentences”, are these sentences still “valid”?

  88. ah long says:

    How can you trust that man. Now he is saying that the Malaysian Government never paid any commission for the submarine deal.

    For years no one denied the fact that there was a commission paid amounting to hundreds of millions of ringgits, now he is trying to deny it.

    That fellow has to go.

    This one was a great movie:
    Also, the viewer has a chance to feel a part of the underwater tensions and claustrophobic conditions that submariners experienced during times of combat underwater. A must-see, or even better, a must buy film for those that enjoy films of this genre.

    Judging by the way the things is going around the cyber world. Someone got a lot of red ants all over him and soon he will start to strip down bare for all to see.
    According to a friend who are experienced in marine vessels, he says that the size of Scorpene is not suitable for the depth of Malacca Straits.

    It will be a dead duck for the air bombers just like a beached Blue Whale.

    South China Sea, well okay lah, but where is the main target for the enemy to attack? West or East of peninsular?

  92. Wong says:

    why do we need to buy submarine and fighter? Why not use the money to eradicate poverty and subsidize toll

  93. Kenny Gan says:

    Whatever the BN govt spends on is just to enrich their coffers, hardly ever for the good of the nation which takes second priority. Yesterday Nades in the Sun says the govt. intend to build a RM17 billion undersea cable from Sarawak to the Peninsula to convey power from Bakun dam when Peninsula already has 43% excess of power.

    Please God…not another 5 years of rape and plunder of the nation by Umno politicians. Let Anwar take over sooner rather than later or the country will be reduce to an empty shell.

  94. wits0 says:

    Really what’s the use of some air force general to envisage AWAC planes in the future(when?) when satellite reconnaissance is already the in thing for any major powers even today. It will not make any much difference should M’sia ever come to a sort of showdown/clash with China, e.g, over the Spratly islands. Or with even Indonesia, lets say, because any small time potential enemy may be fed spy satellite info from another major nation.

    Remember that the US Intelligence fed such info to the British fleet in the ’82 conflict and helped the later to achieve an easy victory.

    Kenny Gan, increasing the velocity of monetary expenditure on arms is being promoted to enrich someone’s private coffers. Not only the Scorpene submarine purchase strange, so are the SukhoiMK30, etc.

    Dear Susan,

    If I can recall, our former PM did mention sometime ago that Malaysia bought a few latest hi tect fighter-Bombers at those prices…….but were not given the “secret launch code” by the US Govt.

    As such any nation can strafe & bomb us whilst we have the latest & most expensive hi tech fighter bombers that can FLY but not hurt anybody…..no secret launch code mah !

    With the wastages (do we carry sufficient spareparts for 20 years life of those fighters or cannibalise one after another for spares ?

    In any case. I doubt if we can win any conflict with any nation including Singapore – just compare their qualifications, strategy, cost-effective specs, equipment numbers (probable twice or more at half the prices we paid !), dedication & committment – trained by the Israel forces !

    So why talk about the latest, most expensive, hi tech, blah,blah,blah,

    We cannot even solve missing childrens in K.L with the latest hi tech equipments, etc…..

    So what’s new in Bloehland ! “Heads I win, tails you lose”

    Please wake up people !

    Well, we can’t blame the high tech equipment can we?
    Blame the people who do not know how to make full use of the equipment.
    Remember, sending the tape to FBI and Spanish Intelligence to ‘enhance’ the pictures?
    Very true first class equipments but no brainer users.

    I find it very difficult to follow some of the responses and explanations given by some pro-BN bloggers to many issues brought up by the rakyat.
    Many I believe who responded are BN leaders or MPs or SAs.

    One thing is conspicuous. Any issue relating to the Malays or Bumiputras is often linked to Islam and vice-versa if the person speaks the malay language and embaraces its culture.

    When responses are laced with religion. the explanations and answers often become mixed up and emotionally charged. And, unnecessary mud-slinging will then ensue; which ends up with inter-racial misunderstand and animosity among the ethnic groups. Top marks to the BN’s MPs who are well trained on this style of public administration.

    Let me give you an expample, Case No 1. Recently, the MB of Perak issued a transfer order to the Director of Islamic Affairs to another department; but, unfordtunately, through the royal intervention, the order was rescinded and the incumbent was reinstated to his former position. I respect the Head of Islam who is also the Sultan who acts on the advice of the State’s MB. I thought a more civil approach in the near future will be to call up the MB for an explanation and weigh whether the grounds for transfer were valid or not or amply justified before countermanding the order of the MB who is in charge of the administration of the State’s matters. In this way, embarrassment of any kind is avoided.

    In a democracy, any constructive opinion should be calmly and rationally considered and not turned at the slightest opportunity into a racial conflagation like in the case of Kapal Singh, who gave his opinion in Parliament that the Sultan did not have the authority to order the retraction of the transfer order which pertained to an administrative matter. He based his opinion on a PC precedent. Now was it justified for allowing some of the BN guys to foment misunderstanding and hate between the sultan and the rakyat on one hand and Kapal on the other.

    If you ask me whether there is any change among the BN’s MPs the last 50 years in attitude and conduct, I musst say no. I have lived the past 50 years to see the transition from bad to worse. I just pray that it will not end up like Taiwan and MIC one day.

    Let us look at Case No. 2 between the Sultan of Terengganu and PM and his State councillors. The Sultan exercised his right not to accept the MB nominee of the PM. Subsequently, there was so much mud being slung in the public. Newly appointed MInister of Law also mentioned in support of the PM action that the Sultan did not have the jurisdiction to reject the PM’s candidate for MB. Thereafter, the elected councillers threatened to boycot and to slam a vote of confidence onto the sultan’s favoured nominee when the Asembly met. Besides, there were character smearing campaigns flying over the cyber space casting aspersion on the Sultan’s reighteousness and considered actions. At the end, the BN had to swallow the humble pie and walked away from the palace with much distaste and frustration. How do you describe such a saga?

    Then there was Case No 3 reporting that DPM’s wife Rosmah rang and shouted at the current Sultan of Selangor. How did the public now view at this incident. So far the Sultan has remained calm and has not reacted. But surely this case is not only disrespectful but demeaning for a commoner to do such discourteous thing to the Head of Islam in Selangor. How do you look at this matter and what sort of punishment she should deserve from the State.?

    DPM and Rosmah, your body language often speak lounder than words of anger, denial or intimidation. If both of you think that you are innocent and that you are not involved in the Altantuya’s bizarre murder, then all you need to do is to ignore the views and comments written by the bloggers from different States and overseas. The more you defend and react the worse it shall become – for people generally believe that there is no smoke without fire.

    All the people really want to know is the TRUTH behind the unusual and dastard killing. Who authorised the issue of the C4 explosive? From which armoury? Where is the issuing record? Who signed out the C4 explosive and for what reasons? I think the public is hungry for such knowledge. As the Minister of Defence, surely you cannot deny this. Not any Tom, Dick and Harry is authorised to have access to the C4 explosive, right? Do correct me if Iwere wrong.

    If you asked me for my opinion on the case that is in progress, too much is dwelt on non-essential and irrelevant matters. And it is taking a toll on the presiding judge, the prosecutors and the family of the dead and their counsel. Besides, it is too time consuming and it is a great waste of public fund. God Almighty knows everyone’s thoughts, desires and needs. He knows who were the culprits who might not be sleeping well every night. That is per se a form of psychological punishment. But, the Truth will prevail ultimately.

    The moral of this blog is ‘render back to Caesar to what that belongs to Caesar and to God, what that belongs to God”.
