    This Bodolah is a useless bugger and a outright liar.

    To stamp out corruption is to restore the judicial power.

    This Bodohlah has betrayed the voters who voted him. This Bodohlah is a traitor of the highest level.

    This bodohlah should be banged banged banged…. long ago aledi….

    It may be a good cause but little will come of it in a country where:

    Govt stalls RM11.3 billion deal to consider RM18 billion option. Why?
    http://rockybru.blogspot.com/2008/08/18-billion-ringgit-man.html

    I think all Judges accounts must be made open to scrutiny. When that Judge holidays are financed by lawyers no action taken by ACA.
    But Tourism DG is charge for corruption on dental treatment. How many judges are serviced by lawyers for women?
    RPK say womaniser Shaffee Abdullah want to be AG.

    Will our Agung be able to do something about all these issues? I hope our signatures carries a lot of weight…!

    Never in 50 years have Malaysia & Malaysians been subjected to so….. much of headaches & heartaches …. under the Bodowi goverment rule !

    And they are getting away with “murder” all ……… the time !
    Please lah…! STOP saying you have the support of UMNO & the rakyat. Your own UMNO people are reporting you & your fren, Najib to ACA, contesting against you, no confidence in you, jumping ship to PKR, etc…….

    We the rakyat have no confidence in the whole of BN anymore. Why still hold on to power? The rakyat WANT change.

    Even though a lot of people dislike the previous PM, at least Malaysia WAS properly govern & the rakyat were NOT suffering…!

    Now a lot………… of chaos !

    When we have a ‘jombie’ running the country, we have jombie’s laws.
    So far, the Agong has been too silent on serious matters concerning this country, I wonder if he will wake up from his nap!

  11. and hoots says:

    Agong not bothered lah. Stop relying on him.

  12. chris chong says:

  15. Menyalak-er says:

    Kindly refrain from unwarranted comments about DYMM YDP Agung.
    It is incumbent for us to understand Art. 153 of the Constituition and understand that the YDP Agung should remain above politics. We seem to fotget that despite all the barouhaha in respect to our reform agenda, this present ‘in’government’ was constituitionally elected.
    Our King must in no way be party to ‘petty’ politics.
    Do not also, cast asperations on what the Agung might or might do with this petition. It is not for us to argue.
    We, his loyal subjects have a duty to inform his Highness of our unhappiness over certain aspects of the condition of our Judiciary.
    You need not sign the petition -> if so stop carping on the independence of the 3rd. most important arm of any democracy.
    Do not forget that our present YDP Agung has no love for corruption, nepotism, cronyism, power of abuse etc. with regards to the recent state politics of Trengganu. He is righteous and fair.
    Daulat Tuanku.

    So now is question of “service” of court papers.

    Anti-vice religious authorities in the northern Malaysian state of Perak have been issued a 14-day notice with the intention to sue by a housewife who said they stormed into her home in the middle of the night without reason, a newspaper reported Friday.

    Zuraida Zainul Abdin, 28, told the New Straits Times she was breastfeeding her 3-month-old son before dawn July 25 when four men identifying themselves as officers from the state’s Religious Department entered her home and began searching it while refusing to answer her questions.

    We the Rakyat, should evaluate and determine the kind of Leaders we want for our beloved country, Malaysia

    Here are the Top 10 Qualities of a Good Leader

    By David Hakala

    ——————————————————————————–

    Leadership can be defined as one’s ability to get others to willingly follow. Every organization needs leaders at every level. Leaders can be found and nurtured if you look for the following character traits:

    A leader with vision has a clear, vivid picture of where to go, as well as a firm grasp on what success looks like and how to achieve it. But it’s not enough to have a vision; leaders must also share it and act upon it. Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of General Electric Co., said, “Good leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision and relentlessly drive it to completion.”

    A leader must be able to communicate his or her vision in terms that cause followers to buy into it. He or she must communicate clearly and passionately, as passion is contagious.

    A good leader must have the discipline to work toward his or her vision single-mindedly, as well as to direct his or her actions and those of the team toward the goal. Action is the mark of a leader. A leader does not suffer “analysis paralysis” but is always doing something in pursuit of the vision, inspiring others to do the same.

    Integrity is the integration of outward actions and inner values. A person of integrity is the same on the outside and on the inside. Such an individual can be trusted because he or she never veers from inner values, even when it might be expeditious to do so. A leader must have the trust of followers and therefore must display integrity.

    Honest dealings, predictable reactions, well-controlled emotions, and an absence of tantrums and harsh outbursts are all signs of integrity. A leader who is centered in integrity will be more approachable by followers.

    Dedication means spending whatever time or energy is necessary to accomplish the task at hand. A leader inspires dedication by example, doing whatever it takes to complete the next step toward the vision. By setting an excellent example, leaders can show followers that there are no nine-to-five jobs on the team, only opportunities to achieve something great.

    Magnanimity means giving credit where it is due. A magnanimous leader ensures that credit for successes is spread as widely as possible throughout the company. Conversely, a good leader takes personal responsibility for failures. This sort of reverse magnanimity helps other people feel good about themselves and draws the team closer together. To spread the fame and take the blame is a hallmark of effective leadership.

    Leaders with humility recognize that they are no better or worse than other members of the team. A humble leader is not self-effacing but rather tries to elevate everyone. Leaders with humility also understand that their status does not make them a god. Mahatma Gandhi is a role model for Indian leaders, and he pursued a “follower-centric” leadership role.

    Openness means being able to listen to new ideas, even if they do not conform to the usual way of thinking. Good leaders are able to suspend judgment while listening to others’ ideas, as well as accept new ways of doing things that someone else thought of. Openness builds mutual respect and trust between leaders and followers, and it also keeps the team well supplied with new ideas that can further its vision.

    Creativity is the ability to think differently, to get outside of the box that constrains solutions. Creativity gives leaders the ability to see things that others have not seen and thus lead followers in new directions. The most important question that a leader can ask is, “What if … ?” Possibly the worst thing a leader can say is, “I know this is a dumb question … ”

    Fairness means dealing with others consistently and justly. A leader must check all the facts and hear everyone out before passing judgment. He or she must avoid leaping to conclusions based on incomplete evidence. When people feel they that are being treated fairly, they reward a leader with loyalty and dedication.

    Assertiveness is not the same as aggressiveness. Rather, it is the ability to clearly state what one expects so that there will be no misunderstandings. A leader must be assertive to get the desired results. Along with assertiveness comes the responsibility to clearly understand what followers expect from their leader.

    Many leaders have difficulty striking the right amount of assertiveness, according to a study in the February 2007 issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, published by the APA (American Psychological Association). It seems that being underassertive or overassertive may be the most common weakness among aspiring leaders.

    A sense of humor is vital to relieve tension and boredom, as well as to defuse hostility. Effective leaders know how to use humor to energize followers. Humor is a form of power that provides some control over the work environment. And simply put, humor fosters good camaraderie.

    Intrinsic traits such as intelligence, good looks, height and so on are not necessary to become a leader. Anyone can cultivate these leadership qualities.

    someone in Dr. Hsu’s Forum also promoting signing of this petition. I would like to sign, but I am not qualified.

    Malaysian of right thinking should give their supports and yet you can see some resistance by certain people in D. Hsu’s Forum.

    http://hsudarren.wordpress.com/2008/08/13/what-an-unfair-world/

    Go and see for yourself, Susan and Haris.

  25. Hoo says:

    Better still, if you guys can give this guy a BIG BIG SLAP…..he deserves such slaps.

  26. Jed Yoong says:

    u think our barisan gomen reads ’em? probably trashed upon receipt?

  27. Hoo says:

    Jed Yoong,

    You are wrong here. That’s why we should get million Malaysians sign the petition.

    This petition is to the Kind, not to ‘your’ barisan gomen, not ‘mine’.

    An upset Shafee then dropped the court papers on the floor and left. They remained on the floor with Raja Petra refusing to take them.

    This is disrespectful to the Court, tapi now Shafee owns the judges, so……..

    Menyalak-er;

    Perhaps, you have everything confused. I am pretty aware that Agong is above politics, but it is well within his power to comment on matters like the justice system if it is being abused. Commenting and Demanding has two different meanings.

    KUALA LUMPUR: Was there foul play?

    A foreign worker, K. Sathiyamoorthy, was at the Industrial Court premises to appear for a case last Wednesday when he was picked up by an Immigration officer.

    Malaysian Trades Union Congress secretary-general G. Rajasekaran alleged that the officer forcibly removed Sathiyamoorthy from the court premises despite him saying that he had to appear at the hearing.

    “We want the human resources minister to investigate the arrest of the foreign worker as we suspect that the company he worked for could have used its influence to get the Immigration officer to stop him from attending court.”

    Sathiyamoorthy had entered the country with proper documents to work at a company in Klang. Following injuries sustained at the workplace, the company dismissed him.

    A company representative, who appeared before the Industrial Court, demanded that the case be struck off because of Sathiyamoorthy’s failure to appear in court as directed.

    Rajasekaran said, fortunately, the court chairman agreed to a plea by an MTUC representative to fix another date for hearing.

    Rajasekaran said since there was suspicion of collusion between the company and the Immigration officer.

    Dugong, he can get away with that? Then it’s true, he owns the court as well! We have beome all dugongs.

    Pointless to have our judiciary system back, after all, just swear by a koran will prove one is innocent!!! case close…haha…

  36. hutchrun says:

    Looks like VK Lingam was not the only one. The judiciary is now controlled by Shafee Abdullah and he can arrange on choice of judges:

    Shafee added that he was even willing to let Raja Petra have his pick of which judge should preside over the trial if the latter wished, in order that the trial could begin right away.
