Gerakan to discuss pulling out of Barisan in October

IPOH: Perak Gerakan wants the party to pull out of Barisan Nasional in view of the coalition leaders adopting a political culture that garners support only from particular communities. Making the proposal at the state delegates' conference Sunday, Perak Gerakan chief Datuk Chang Ko Youn said about 80% of the delegates agreed with the issue. more...

  1. Koh: No question of party pulling out of BN

    Gerakan leader Dr Koh Tsu Koon today side-stepped questions on whether his party would withdraw from Barisan Nasional following calls by a top party leader to protest ‘big brother' Umno's persistent use of racial politics.

    MCPXSpeaking to journalists in Seberang Jaya today, he said the "question does not arise at all" for Gerakan to pull out from Barisan Nasional.

    "I am here heading the BN by-election machinery in Permatang Pauh," said the BN state chairperson, without giving a direct ‘yes or no' answer.

    Earlier today Gerakan national women leader and vice-president Tan Lian Hoe suggested that the party should pull out from BN due to Umno's unabated and unabashed racial politics that had hurt the sentiments of non-Malays and non-Muslims.

    Speaking at the party's Perak annual delegates' conference in Ipoh today, she hammered Umno for not learning from the harsh lessons meted out by voters in the last March general election.

    "Umno continues to play racial issues without being bothered about the feelings of others.

    "The party leaders seem yet to comprehend that racial politics no longer have a place in our multiracial society.

    "Malaysians have rejected it in the last general election," the deputy information minister told the delegates this morning.

    Another leader supports Anwar

    To this, Koh said Tan (left) had only expressed her personal opinion and not that of the party.

    He also suggested that "she was able to accumulate more information about grassroots sentiments due to her ministerial capacity".

    While Koh was able to deflect the comments made by Tan in Perak, he has to deal with the move by another party veteran, Toh Kin Woon, to openly support Anwar to win the by-election.

    Toh also said that his approval for Anwar was based on his personal stand. At press time, Koh was unavailable to comment on the matter.

    Based on what had happened at the Perak meeting this morning as well as with Toh's stand to support Anwar, Koh will have to make a decision on the party's continued stay in the Umno-led BN.

    This morning, another party leader Chan Ko Youn concurred with Tan, urging the Perak delegates to raise the ‘pull out' agenda at the national party meeting in October for the party leaders to consider the matter.

  2. YES! tThat is the most sensible thing. After all, they are almost routed in PR12. MIC should follow as they were also rejected.

    Other political parties in Sabah and Sarawak should comtemplate the same move:

    SAPP
    UPKO
    PRS
    SPDP

    Then UMNO-led coalition will be in limbo!

  4. Kerajaan Hong Kong Rampas Wang Musa Aman

    Monday, 18 August 2008 13:20


    Oleh: 'Deep Throat' Sabah

    Penangkapan adik angkat Ketua Menteri Sabah, Datuk Seri Musa Aman iaitu Michael Chia di Hong Kong pada jam 2.35 petang khamis (14 Ogos 2008) telah membongkar misteri di sebalik enigma.

    Michael Chia ditangkap polis Hong Kong di Lapangan Terbang Chek Lap Kok, Hong Kong ketika ingin menyertai penerbangan ke Kuala Lumpur.

    Menurut sumber rapat Polis Hong Kong dan Interpol, mereka telah memantau kegiatan haram Michael Chia sejak tiga tahun lalu dan akhirnya berjaya menangkap Michael bersama bukti wang tunai Singapura bernilai RM16 juta yang diseludup keluar daripada Hong Kong di dalam beg pakaiannya.

    Setelah disoalsiasat, Michael merayu agar dibebaskan kerana wang berkenaan milik Musa Aman dan beliau hanyalah agen membawa keluar wang berkenaan ke Kuala Lumpur bagi membantu meringankan beban kewangan Barisan Nasional dalam proses penamaan calon di Permatang Pauh dan sebahagiannya untuk kegunaan pilihanraya kecil berkenaan.

    Penangkapan ini membuatkan Musa Aman berang dan bimbang beliau akan terjerat berikutan penahanan Michael Chia bersama bukti dan lebih malang lagi apabila akaunnya di beberapa bank di Hong Kong dibekukan serta merta.

    "CM (Musa) marah betul atas kebodohan Michael Chia kerana bawa wang tunai. Kenapa tidak TT (Telegraphic Transfer) saja? Saya rasa CM kita dalam bahaya," ujar Datuk Amin Khan, seorang proksi Musa Aman ketika memberitahu rakannya yang juga Datuk melalui telefon di sebuah coffe house hotel terkemuka yang sempat didengar wakil Malaysia Today di Sabah yang secara kebetulan menikmati makan malam di situ.

    Penangkapan suspek ini mengejutkan semua pihak terutama Badan Pencegah Rasuah Sabah kerana Michael Chia tidak boleh meninggalkan Negara ini tanpa mendapat izin BPR kerana pasportnya dalam simpanan BPR atas beberapa pertuduhan rasuah bersama Loh Man Heng.

    Michael yang sebelum ini ditangkap bersama rakan kongsi Musa Aman, Loh Man Heng dan Chong 'Khung Long' (Chong Dinasour) kemungkinan akan dihadapkan ke Mahkamah Tinggi Hong Kong pada hari ini bagi menghadapi pertuduhan penyeludupan wang dan pengurupan wang haram (Money Traficking dan Money Laundering).

    Penangkapan Michael ini memberi tamparan hebat kepada Ketua Pengarah BPR, Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan kerana desas desus yang tersebar meluas mengatakan bahawa Kes Rasuah Loh Man Heng telah ditutup berikutan pengakuan Loh Man Heng sendiri bahawa beliau telah membayar sejumlah RM4 juta melalui pegawai kanan BPR, Mohd Jamidan Abdullah yang sebelum ini menutup kes Musa Aman dalam kegiatan pembalakan haram di Keningau.

    Sebelum ini, Pengurus Besar Operasi Kumpulan Yayasan Sabah, Mohd Daud Tampokong yang sering kelihatan bersama dengan Michael Chia di Hong Kong dan Singapura untuk menjalankan transaksi kewangan bagi pihak Musa Aman.

    Namun bak kata pepatah modern, sepandai-pandai ayam melompat, akhirnya menjadi KFC, Michael Chia terjebak walaupun sebelum ini telah berjaya melakukan traksaksi pemindahan wang dalam jumlah yang besar, namun kali ini tertangkap kerana gelojoh membawa wang tunai dengan jumlah melebihi had yang dibenarkan.

    Musa Aman begitu mempercayai Michael Chia kerana syarikat bapa Michael, Chia & Sons telah banyak membantu Musa di era beliau membina kerjaya dalam bidang pembalakan dan kontrak, terutama penyewaaan skau (tongkang) untuk menarik kayu balak Musa.

    Apabila Musa menjadi Pengarah Yayasan Sabah dan Ketua Menteri Sabah, Michael telah menjadi 'Taiko' dalam bidang perhutanan terutama di konsesi Yayasan Sabah.

    Michael turut dibantu oleh Chong 'Khung Long' atau yang digelar 'Dinosour' kerana kegiatannya dalam bidang pembalakan haram untuk membekalkan balak kepada Michael selain daripada konsesi dengan kerjasama Pengarah Perhutanan Sabah, Datuk Sam Mannan @ Sam Singh.

    Berita penangkapan Michael Chia belum diketahui umum namun tidak mengejutkan penduduk Sandakan kerana selama ini beliau menunjukkan kekayaan luar biasa dan hidup mewah dengan memiliki sekurang-kurangnya dua bungalow dan 17 kereta mewah, selain harta yang dibeli di Hong Kong dan Singapura.

    "Satu sport rim keretanya sama nilainya dengan sebuah proton wira," ujar William, seorang mekanik yang menyelenggara keretanya sejak tujuh tahun lalu.

    Dalam pada itu, hubungan antara Daud Tampokong dan Michael Chia terlalu rapat kerana mereka sering dilihat bersama di Shang Hai, Shang Zen, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapura dan Quang Zhou untuk menguruskan 'ang pau' untuk Musa Khan yang kebanyakannya dimasukkan ke dalam akaun Hajjah Rosmawati Haji Lasuki (Gundik Musa Aman) yang juga Pengurus Sumber Manusia dan Pentadbiran Yayasan Sabah.

  6. Dr Toh quits Gerakan barely 24 hours after he voiced his support, on a personal capacity, for Anwar Ibrahim, Gerakan leader Dr Toh Kin Woon has quit his party.

    The Gerakan central committee member submitted his resignation letter to the party today.

    Giving no further details, Toh is said to have quit to concentrate on his NGO work.

    Nevertheless, the timing of his pullout from the Penang-based party has raised many questions.

    While most Barisan Nasional politicians were expressing their confidence in winning the Permatang Pauh by-election, Toh was seen visiting the PKR election operation centre yesterday.

    During the visit the veteran politician expressed his support for Anwar and feels that the PKR leader's addition to Parliament can help strengthen democracy.

    "I am not speaking for my party, I am speaking for myself as an individual - I do support Anwar Ibrahim in this by-election. I am not actually supporting him too much as an individual but more on the movement that he leads.

    "I feel if Anwar (is elected to) Parliament, the voices of the opposition will be stronger and the chances of strengthening the democracy and widening the democratic space will be better. For these reason, I support him," said the academician-turned-politician.

    The vocal politician had stressed that he was not supporting Anwar-led PKR as a party but the movement and the cause which the PKR politician has been fighting for.

    Cosmetic services warning
    18th August, 2008

    KOTA KINABALU: Members of the public have been cautioned against undergoing cosmetic makeover and body contouring treatment conducted at uncertified makeshift facilities.

    Giving the caution was State Health Director Dr Marzukhi Md Isa in a news report published in a local Chinese daily here over the weekend.

    While noting that his department has yet to receive any report or complaint over such an operation in the state, he however urged those who have knowledge of it or have been victimized by it, to come forward to lodge an official complaint, so that the department could conduct a thorough investigation into the matter.

    Dr Marzukhi also stressed that all cosmetic surgeries must be conducted at clinics and hospitals that have been properly registered and certified by the relevant authorities, and not at some makeshift facility.

    He was responding to a controversial article posted by someone on the Internet recently, over a dubious cosmetic and body contouring services provided by a beautician who was said to be connected to a prominent Sabah politician.

    According to the said article, the beautician operates a chain of beauty parlours throughout the state and had engaged some dubious ‘foreign experts’ including those from China, to provide cosmetic makeovers, including breast enhancement and liposuction surgery, for her clients.

    It also depicted the horrible experience of some potential clients who happened to witness the horrifying scene of another patient undergoing the liposuction treatment at one of her clinics.

    The article also claimed that the said beautician had been able to get away with her dubious operations all these while, due to her ‘intimate relation’ with her influential politician boyfriend who has influence over state medical and health services.

  10. The Musa Aman silap mata


    ‘Silap mata’ translates literally to ‘error of the eye’ but would more accurately mean ‘sleight of hand’. According to the Thesaurus, ‘sleight of hand’ means ‘artful deception’ or ‘smoke and mirrors’. Only very clever people can be artful in their deception. Stupid people get caught. No doubt the hand is faster than the eye, but the hand must be very fast and skillful to be able to fool the eye. Nevertheless, there is another Malay saying: pandai-pandai tupai melompat, akhirnya jatuh ke tanah. Loosely translated, this means: however clever the squirrel may be at jumping from tree to tree, in the end it will still fall to earth.

    One such squirrel, or as some in Sabah circles would call, wily fox (musang in Malay), is its Chief Minister, Musa Aman. Over the last two years, Malaysia Today has been persistently revealing much of Musa Aman’s excesses and transgressions which he perpetuated openly and blatantly (see Special Reports on Sabah here). Nowadays, Musa Aman is not taking things for granted anymore and does not do things so blatantly and openly. But he is still perpetuating his evil deeds just like before with no slowdown in sight. It is still business as usual, especially since he does not know how long he is going to keep his job and is therefore reaping and raping as much as he can in whatever little time he may have left. It is just that he is now doings things undercover and with sleights of hand to cover his tracks.

    Or so he thinks.

    As they say, shit floats, and eventually all Musa Aman’s shit floats to the top. There is much shit in Sabah with Musa Aman’s thumbprints all over them. Just scanning the Special Reports on Sabah is enough to give you a mother of a migraine. The billion dollar question is not so much the manner in which he conjures all these tricks of his (which is actually not that clever since we are able to catch him easily with his pants down) but more how he appears to be getting away with them in spite of Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s ‘war on corruption’. Or is this so-called war of Pak Lah’s just another ‘smoke and mirrors’, his very own sleight of hand to give an appearance of an effort in combating corruption -- but in reality while we all look at his left hand, his right hand is on Michelle Yeoh’s bare shoulders. Now that is certainly a sleight of hand even the great Houdini would admit defeat.

    How can Pak Lah not notice Musa Aman’s antics in Sabah unless he is doing the famous Umno thing: closing one eye -- a trick invented by that infamous Member of Parliament from Jasin who is in the illegal logs export-import business? Musa Aman publicly declared his assets as RM300 million when he first took office as Sabah Chief Minister in March 2003. In the short time he has been Chief Minister, he has managed to increase his assets to an estimated RM1 billion. Every man and his dog in Sabah know this. It is no secret. Yet Pak Lah does not know this? The fact that Musa Aman was worth RM300 million when he took office in March 2003 is in itself something to question. How he managed to triple his worth in such a short time of four years is no mystery as Malaysia Today has exposed in great detail, over the last couple of years, how he did it.

    We are not going to resurrect the old stories, reports and exposes which can be read in the Special Reports on Sabah section. These exposes speak for themselves and are supported by facts, figures, events, photographs, letters, and the like. If these are still not enough to bring Musa Aman to book, then let us expose yet another transgression which demonstrates how this Pakistani immigrant is reaping and raping the wealth of Sabah. We must, however, take our hat off to this ‘Malay’ who can rule over the majority non-Malay people of Sabah and steal from under their very noses with no resistance offered whatsoever. Maybe it is true what they say after all: the natives of North Borneo are so simple-minded that it would be a sin not to steal from them. And I bet when Pak Lah goes to Sabah this 15th February he will pat Musa Aman on the back and proclaim him the best Chief Minister Sabah ever had. And the natives of Sabah will continue to be robbed in broad daylight by this Pakistani in Malay clothing. Maybe the Sabah people deserve being robbed since they are so stupid as to keep mum and keep voting in governments that steal from them. Is it not a saying that a fool and his money are soon parted?

    Let us look at the latest and greatest building in Kota Kinabalu called Wisma Bandaraya. Every man and his dog in Sabah know that this building is owned by Musa Aman. Just stop any illegal immigrant holding a valid Malaysian identity card (NRIC) which entitles him to vote only for Umno (and there are more than one million of them in Sabah), point to Wisma Bandaraya, and ask him or her who the building belongs to and see what the reply is. No one would shake their head and say they do not know. They all know it belongs to Musa Aman. So, you may ask, what is wrong with owning a building? Well, nothing wrong with that unless you have abused your authority in the process of acquiring it.

    And we shall explain how and why in due course but first feast your eyes on the photograph of Wisma Bandaraya.



    On the morning of Friday, 9 February 2007, Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan made a report with the Sabah Anti-Corruption Agency. The last we heard is that the Director of the ACA is ‘studying’ this matter to explore what action should be taken, that is if in the first place any action can and should be taken. Chances are the Director of the ACA will instead go meet Musa Aman to discuss how to cover this matter up so that a statement can be issued later that the ACA has investigated this matter and no evidence was found of any wrongdoing. Does this not sound familiar?

    This was what the Daily Express reported the following day, 10 February 2007, in a news item entitled: Jeffrey denies leading team to meet Kuan Yew

    Kota Kinabalu: Deputy Chairman of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Sabah, Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan, has denied leading a group of people for a private meeting with Singapore’s Senior Minister Lee Kwan Yew. He was asked about the meeting in the wake of rumours that it was held in the republic a few weeks ago.

    Before answering, Jeffrey took a long pause and someone beside him told him to say “No”. Jeffrey then immediately said “no trip, no meeting and no comment”. It is not the norm for world leaders enjoying good relations to entertain opposition figures from neighbouring states.

    He was asked this after he lodged a report with the Anti Corruption Agency (ACA) at the new federal complex Friday. When asked to elaborate what was his complaint to the ACA about, he said: “A big fish abusing his power and authority.”

    He said the ACA Director advised him not to make any statement yet as it might jeopardise their investigations. When contacted, ACA State Director Hjh Latifah Md Yatim confirmed Jeffrey had met her but stressed that it was an ordinary meeting.

    It is apparent the Anti-Corruption Agency will not be taking any action on this report which the Director calls an ordinary meeting. The ‘preliminary’ statement by the ACA Director seems to point to that possibility. But then this is certainly no longer any surprise. To pre-empt this, Dr Jeffrey will be making a police report very soon. This will tie the ACA’s hands and force them to do something about the matter.

    The 3,564.8 square-meter (0.356 hectare) land on which Wisma Bandaraya sits was originally owned by the government. On 5 June 1981, it was given to KOPERASI SERBAGUNA SANYA BHD (KOSAN). On 19 April 1984, the land title, TL017539856, was issued.



    KOSAN is a cooperative owned by SANYA, the Sabah National Youth Association. During the time of Harris Salleh’s Berjaya government from 1976 to 1985, Musa Aman was SANYA’s Deputy President so it was he who applied for the land in 1981. Musa Aman very cleverly used SANYA and KOSAN as the front to acquire the land. However, once it was safely parked in the name of the cooperative, he then made his move to transfer it from the youth movement to his private company.

    But Musa Aman’s attempt to grab the land was blocked by the PBS government that ruled the state from 1985 to 1994. This led to a crisis between Musa Aman and Datuk Masidi Manjun -- the Umno Sabah Liaison Assistant Secretary and Sabah Youth and Sports Minister -- who was then the Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Youth and Sports. It was not until a decade later in 1994 when Umno swept the state was Musa Aman able to finally get his hands on this prime land, an effort which was assisted by Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Haji Mulia, one of those who walk through the Sabah corridors of power.

    Needless to say, Pandikar is today being well-rewarded for his assistance and he is one of those who are beneficiaries to much of Musa Aman’s generosity. Come to think of it, is Masidi’s appointment as the Umno Sabah Liaison Assistant Secretary and Sabah Youth and Sports Minister also a buy-off to get him to remain silent and not resist the move to transfer the land out of the youth cooperative and into Musa Aman’s private company?



    The mistake Musa Aman made was in using his family company, BESTCO SDN BHD, (70077-P) to acquire the land. BESTCO SDN BHD was incorporated on 28 April 1981 and the Registrar of Companies lists its address as Lot 2, Blok B, Tingkat 3, Kompleks Sedco, Kampung Air, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. The company’s authorised capital is RM2 million while the paid up capital is RM1.4 million.



    On 25 September 2000, BESTCO SDN BHD officially ‘annexed’ the land.



    On that very same day -- 25 September 2000 -- the land was charged to Malayan Banking for a loan of RM14,672,000.00.





    On 25 September 2000, Musa Aman was the Minister in the Chief Minister’s office. The Chief Minister then was the infamous Osu Sukam who is now fighting his case in court against the casinos that are claiming an unpaid debt.

    The two Directors of BESTCO SDN BHD are:

    1) TAN KOON YEE (NRIC No. 520430-12-5057), whose registered address is Tingkat 9, Blok 50, Bangunan Yeng Ho Hong, Sandakan (who came onboard on 1 November 1983);

    2) Musa Aman’s wife, DATIN FARIDAH BTE TUSSIN (NRIC no. 561120-12-5140), whose registered address is Unit No. 15.5-B2, Likas Square, Kota Kinabalu (who came onboard on 12 July 1999).



    The three shareholders of BESTCO SDN BHD are:

    1) DATUK MUSA HAJI AMAN (NRIC no. 510330-12-5093) who holds 840,000 shares.

    2) YENG KIAT SDN BHD (Co. reg. no. 31710-W) that holds 420,000 shares.

    3) TAN KOON YEE (NRIC no. 520430-12-5057) who holds 140,000 shares.

    (Total shares: 1,400,000 at RM1.00 per share)



    The premium for the land is in arrears ever since the land was acquired in 1981. The breakdown of the RM264,000.00 arrears, none of which has been settled thus far, is as follows:

    RM198,000.00 (up to the year 2003)
    RM16,500.00 (for the year 2004)
    RM16,500.00 (for the year 2005)
    RM16,500.00 (for the year 2006)
    RM16,500.00 (for the year 2007)



    Note the nominal amount of premium -- a mere RM16,500.00 a year for such a prime piece of land -- which is pittance, yet remains unpaid over the last 26 years. If this is not ‘close one eye’, or maybe both eyes, then I just do not know what is.

    Musa Aman has instructed all the government agencies to move to Wisma Bandaraya to ensure that the building is fully-tenanted. Due to the excess supply of office space in Kota Kinabalu this has resulted in all the other buildings suffering a severe drop in tenants. Invariably, the government agencies have had to move to Wisma Bandaraya at a much higher rental cost than that being paid in the old premises such as Wisma Boon Siew and Wisma MUIS. Furthermore, now that they have moved to this new building, they have had to incur additional costs to renovate their offices. The cost to renovate the old premises of course cannot be salvaged and is money down the drain. Renovation costs need to be wiped out once you move to your new office and on top of that you need to again incur additional costs to renovate your new office.


    (Wisma Boon Siew: Where the Sabah Energy Corporation was originally located)

    The Sabah Energy Corporation was originally renting a space in Wisma Boon Siew before it was instructed to move out and move to Wisma Bandaraya. This move cost them an additional expense of RM5 million in renovation charges.


    (The MUIS building where the Kementerian Pembangunan Sumber dan Teknologi Maklumat and the Jabatan Sumber Manusia was originally located and which is now almost vacant)

    The same went for the Kementerian Pembangunan Sumber dan Teknologi Maklumat and the Jabatan Sumber Manusia which were instructed to move out of the MUIS building and move into Wisma Bandaraya. Apart from more than RM2.5 million a year in rental charges, the Kementerian Pembangunan Sumber dan Teknologi Maklumat and the Jabatan Sumber Manusia also had to spend RM5 million in renovation costs. The total rental both these agencies have paid thus far since 2003 is almost RM10 million.

    To ensure that Wisma Bandaraya does not suffer the same fate as Wisma Boon Siew and the MUIS building -- in the event that Musa Aman falls from grace -- he has instructed them to sign a 15-year rental agreement; apart from having to pour tens of millions into renovating their new offices. This means it is does not make economic sense for them to move out again.

    What is puzzling is the fact that government agencies such as the Kementerian Pembangunan Sumber dan Teknologi Maklumat and the Jabatan Sumber Manusia are entitled to free office space in the Federal Government building but instead are paying more than RM2.5 million a year in rental charges to rent a space in Wisma Bandaraya. The Sabah Energy Corporation is paying an even higher rental charge than this. And the same goes for the other agencies as well such as FAMA and the Registrar of Companies that can get free office space in the Federal Government building such as Wisma Dang Bandang -- which is just next door and which is now almost empty since the National Registration Department and Immigration Department moved out and relocated to ‘Mini Putrajaya’. They are now paying millions in rental when they could actually get space free in a government-owned building.


    (Wisma Dang Bandang: which is just next door to Wisma Bandaraya is now empty and the various government agencies can actually take up the surplus space here free without having to pay exorbitant rental charges)

    Musa Aman has perpetuated much over the last few years since taking office. But his excesses and transgressions started even before he became Chief Minister in 2003. When Chong Kah Kiat was the Chief Minister, Musa Aman arranged the sale of logs that had a market value of RM300 p.c.m. for only RM50. Though Chong Kah Kiat was the Chief Minister, he could not oppose the wishes of Musa Aman who was the Umno Sabah Chief -- so ultimately Musa Aman made all the decisions and Chong Kah Kiat just complied. The Wisma Bandaraya land is another case in point that was transferred to the youth cooperative when Musa Aman was its Deputy President. Now that he is the Chief Minister he is able to hijack the land and transfer it to his own company. And who would argue with the Chief Minister when he instructs the government agencies to move out of their free premises, or premises they are paying low rental, and take up space in Wisma Bandaraya at an exorbitant rental cost?

    That is the fun of walking through the corridors of power and that is why they are falling over each other to be the one who walks through the corridors of power. Oh, and one more thing, expect the Anti-Corruption Agency investigation to go cold due to lack of evidence. After all, as Pak Lah said, how can we believe what Blogs and websites publish since they only publish lies?

    Over to you, people of Sabah. Who owns Sabah anyway, the natives or the immigrants who rule over you?

    ADDENDUMS

    1) Memorandum mendesak Musa Aman letak jawatan

    2) Police Report against Musa Aman on the Wisma Bandaraya issue

    3) Laporan salahguna kuasa & rasuah Ketua Menteri Sabah

    4) Jeffrey free to lodge whatever reports, says Musa Aman

    LATEST UPDATES

    On 12 February 2007, Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan made a police report against Musa Aman at Karamunsing (report number 002311/07) plus he lodged an official report with the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) in relation to the above and in reference to his meeting with the ACA Director on 9 February 2007. The ACA Director has threatened Dr Jeffrey with arrest if he reveals the contents of his report.

    It is time for other political parties (minus UMNO) within BN, to form a coalition and fight for the rights of each citizen irrespective of their background.

    It is more advisable to do so rather than voting PKR to power, as DSAI has the history of practising discrimination. Look at the education policies introduced during his time as Education Minister...... There was a saying ..... " A crow will forever be a crow" (loose translation).

    "陈莲花今早接到很多朋友的电话说,媒体引述她的谈话与事实有一点出入,因此决定召开记者会以正视听。"!!!

    小小羊儿要记得大家

    佬翁曾说:『言行要一致』,不说一套,作又另一套。

    在狼虎面前,看去如『代罪羔羊』,顺顺小绵羊!

    诺!诺!诺( No! No! No! )报章写错一点点了,
    不过替基层传话罢了。( 谁吹涨?)
    护羊者,说话谈谈吐吐,群羊那不遭殃呢!
    况且,羊儿可能不回这家了!

    说话算话,要以『民正』为归,不如向佬羊看齐吧!

  15. 'I voiced it, but I don't support it'

    Gerakan Wanita chief Tan Lian Hoe landed in the spotlight after the media reported that she had urged her party to leave the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition because of Umno’s racial politics.

    One day later, the politician explained that she was merely voicing out the concerns of the grassroots but did not support the call made by the Perak Gerakan delegates during a conference on Sunday.

    At a press conference yesterday, Tan said she was misquoted, claiming that the contentious statement was made by the Perak delegates and not the Wanita wing.

    "However, as leaders of a democratic party, we could not stop them from voicing out their grievances concerning the events happening in the country of late," she was quoted as saying by Bernama.

    "Nevertheless certain incidents in regard to race and religion have caused uneasiness to some and we have to listen to our grassroots," added Tan, who is also Perak Gerakan Wanita chief.

    She was clarifying news reports that about 80 percent of the delegates who attended the Perak Gerakan's delegates conference wanted the matter to be debated at the party's upcoming national delegates' conference in October.

  16. When SAPP expressed its 'No Confidence in PM' stand, they were called spoiler because they have only 2 members of parliament. All in a sudden Chan Ko Houn of Perak Gerakan said about 80% of the grassroot supporters were in favour of quiting BN. Who cares whether it is Tan Lian Hoe's idea? Politicians always wobble. Lee Kah Choon, Tan Chee Kwan and Toh Kin Woon have quitted. Koh Tzu Koon can keep the leaking ship to himself. He's good to wobble issues. Remember he named 1 successor before the PRU 12, then 2, 3 and then 4 cronies under pressures from all front? Penang voters were so sick of it and decided to boot his party out of the Penang State Assembly altogether in the PRU 12 election. Did he really learn from all of those events?

  17. In reply to "Look at the face.
    That doesn't come easy from heart!"

    By merely looking at the three faces have gossips again within the "Ghost" month. Gossips about "ahlan-ituya" standing in between, yah!
    Without hearing voices will be dangerous thing for many to imagine conversation.
    It could be the same to what wrongful accusation had happened recently. May call this as CSI prove of humh...evidence!

    峇东埔国会议席补选,国阵候选人阿力夏频频以华语及广东话向华裔选民发表谈话,此举获得马华公会尊贵的卫生部长廖中莱背书,他说:“阿力夏谙华文,较能了解华社的感受,双溪里武村需要一名真正当地人服务华社同胞”。峇东埔的选民们,不管你是任何的种族,为了这个国家,请用你手中神圣的一票,勇敢的对腐败者说不,让他"国阵候选人阿力夏"失去按柜金吧!.身为峇东埔外的华人,我希望你们可以用手中神圣的一票,教训那个霸权,践踏华人的巫统。国阵华基政党(马华,人联和民政〕已经不可靠了。那就全靠你们了!马来西亚拥有丰富的天然资源,一个远离大地震和一些较为严重的灾难的国家,照理说应该是比我们邻国的新加坡 来得更进步!可是为何在国阵的统治50年里头,我们应该是现在比邻岛的新加坡来的更进步,甚至更繁荣,而不 是还停留在80年代的。要是中央在不变天的话,相信我们在未来几年后的马来西亚肯定可以跟现有的印度尼西亚结为姐妹国.

  19. For Merdeka and Malaysian’s Malaysia Day on 16-09-1963

    期望向前走,45年回顾历史,走来不易。
    谈一谈,大家作分细,一些领袖是否在期望历史走回头路重演吗?

    某位前领袖说:"『如果他不辞职,我退出党』!
    对他的领导无信心,不能再保护我族的权利。
    条件为,由另一位所推存上位,我才回党!"

    此前一位看不像极端的前领袖,还在其部落大谈历史,

    不求改变历史,但要求爱全民的领导者!

    看昨日辩论会,马来西亚在北方出了个
    如李光耀的中年领袖。
    当然,沙巴会有如先贤般的张天文,敦法等爱民者!

    终要把生与爱国的真正马来西亚子民唤醒,不重蹈过往不正的历史投机者极端心态。
    公平对待全民,共享国有成果。

  21. 几天前教育部副部长120万令吉,支助巴东坡的几间华小,锅阵侯选人阿力夏在群众大会讲华语,会拿到一些选票,但对整个补选的选情影响不大。大马华教在国阵统治下,要走的路依然很不平坦。

  22. 当年参加国阵的六位华教斗士,只剩许子根博士还在快要沉没的民政党,摇旗呐喊。他的旧日同僚‘国阵的良心’杜乾焕博士,已退出民政党,以个人身份,支持安华竞选巴东坡国会议席,真所谓一叶知秋。巴东坡的选民,把马来西亚带回公正民主,全靠你们手中一票了。

  23. With such an 'impressive record & career' Musa Aman campaigns for Arif Shah. I wonder if it's helping the candidate or the other way around. Arif if you lose your deposit, claim it back from Musa.
