Happy New year 2009 to all! I know, I know, I have been away too long. But it was something I needed to do. Don’t worry, I did not burn or die in the Bangkok fire on New Year’s Eve. What a sad incident, when I thought that 2009 would be a cool year. I do miss everyone here.
But, wait a minute…will this be a real “happy new year”? A “real” prosperous 2009?
Well, I’ve come back to blogsphere by signing on to this PETITION created and written by Haris Ibrahim of the People’s Parliament. Like him and many others, I do not have confidence in Najib Tun Razak, what more as my country’s Prime Minister come March 2009.
Oh, what a dreadful 2009 it would be. And the reasons? Here’s an abstract by Haris:
We, the undersigned, draw the attention of you, Honourable Members of Parliament, to some very serious questions, all of which remain unanswered to this day, which arise from the matters listed above, all matters of record. These include :-
14. Who did Mongolian national, Burmaa Oyunchimeg, mean by ‘Najib Razak’ as the government official photographed with the murdered Altantuya and the one accused of a ‘tentative’ charge? Did she mean Dato Seri Najib? And if she meant Dato Seri Najib, what are we to make of the latter’s denial to having ever known, been acquainted with or had any dealings whatsoever with the murdered Altantuya? Again, if she meant Dato Seri Najib, would this not corroborate the assertion by private investigator Balasubramaniam in his first statutory declaration that Dato Seri Najib was well-acquainted with Altantuya. Noting that to-date, Dato Seri Najib has never refuted this piece of evidence, it must be asked why this assertion by Burmaa Oyunchimeg has never been fully investigated?
15. Have the police concluded their investigation, which commenced in early July this year, in the matter of private investigator Balasubramaniam’s two contradictory statutory declarations? If so, why has he not been charged for making a false statutory declaration? Which is the false statutory declaration? Was he forced to make the false declaration and if so, by who and how? Where is he and his family now? Are they safe?
16. Is there truth in the assertion by Mongolian national, Uuriintuya Gal-Orchir that local immigration records of her, Altantuya and their friend Namiraa Gerelmaa’s entry into Malaysia on 8th October, 2006 had disappeared? If true, who was responsible for this and why was this done? Was the responsible party acting on instructions and, if so, who and why? Why has this assertion by Uuriintuya Gal-Orchir never been fully investigated?
17. Given the startling decision of the Attorney General’s Chambers not to appeal the acquittal of Razak Baginda, has there been an investigation into the exchange of sms’s between Dato Seri Najib and the senior lawyer to ascertain if there was any abuse of power or interference with due process howsoever by Dato Seri Najib?
We, the undersigned, note with considerable regret that the Honourable Member of Parliament for Ipoh Timor, Yang Berkhidmat Lim Kit Siang had, in October, 2008, urged that a Royal Commission of Inquiry be established to, amongst others, fully investigate the matters hereinstated, but the present administration has ignored this call.
And we, the undersigned, state now that until and unless the matters raised herein and the serious questions arising therefrom have been adequately investigated and findings that fully vindicate Dato Seri Najib of any and all inferences and aspersions that might reasonably be drawn or made from the same are disclosed to the public, we have no confidence in Dato Seri Najib to lead our country as Prime Minister.

I am petitioner 580, what about you? Do you have confidence in Najib at all?
