To pro-BN political pundits, the latest on DOJ is political ploy between the pro-Democrat attorneys and Mahathir.
Apparently, the sceptical responses and critics hurled at DOJ by BN politicians got their attention. DOJ responded through Malaysiakini. Why only Malaysiakini? Is it for real? Is it another proof of collaboration with foreign government to topple democratically elected Malaysian government?
If it is taken in good faith that the e--mail exist, there is still a shroud of doubt as to why DOJ website did not make public their response on their website (see here.) Only two on their search engine.
Malaysiakini chose to highlight in their headline, "DOJ: We're in the business of facts, not insinuations" and FMT report based on Malaysiakini report highlighted "DoJ says its court filings based on reasonable facts".
The last para in the second attempt for seizure and forfeiture against those that allegedly laundered money from 1MDB, as taken from Bigdog here, as below:
“A civil forfeiture complaint is merely an allegation that money or property was involved in or represents the proceeds of a crime. These allegations are not proven until a court awards judgment in favor of the U.S.”

Since lawyer Hanif Khatri and Dato Abdul Kadir Jasin answer to any arguments questioning the validity and admissibility of the latest DOJ submission is to challenge anyone to sue them, then it is suggested that both the accused and implicated Tun Dr Mahathir and Syed Saddiq should sue RPK.
In his posting, "Syed Saddiq knew the US-DoJ attack was coming", Raja Petra claimed that Mahathir paid US$5 million to Clinton Foundation to get DOJ to submit the 'flimsy' charges to the US California Court last year.
He implicated Tun Daim and Syed Saddiq. It is claimed also Syed Saddiq told his friends that Mahathir spent RM50 million on the whole foreign attack exercise to topple Dato Najib.
In the earlier posting, "Mahathir is playing his last card in a futile attempt to oust Najib", he merely said millions were spent on the July 20th 2016 announcement and more for the June 15th 2017 announcement.

Kring kring ...An unknown number called into our handphone after Terawih last week.
Usually we would not pick it up and rather wait them text something. If they is an urgency, there will be a text message to ask to return call or whatever the brief intention of the call.
This time we accepted the call.
"Hello ah ... are you ....?"It was a deep grouchy Chinaman voice speaking English with a common folk Chinese accent.
"Can you introduce yourself. It is only the proper phone ettiquate."
"Oh sorry ... I am XXX (name to be witheld). Saya dapat nombor awak dari ini Dato YYY. Are you itu blogger apa itu nama A Voice ...?

The SRC issue being spinned by Rafizi could not gain much attention lately except to the diehard. Simply, anything coming out of Rafizi's mouth is not believeable.
Although Rafizi's blocked website SPRM Insider released claimed investigation papers, MACC hardly blinked an eye. The claim is it is documents leaked by Dato Bahari in-cohoot with Tan Sri Abu Kassim and other Dato still in MACC.
Till they acknowledged it came from them, who would gave attention? Would they do so as it tantamounts to breachng OSA?
Maybe Rafizi is not interested to tell the truth but only spin to get public attention. Coming to an election, it is the number of votes that matter, not political correctness.
It only serve to reinforce the diehard, not necessary change election. It needs winning the big block of more scrutinising fence seaters!

The frontpage of Utusan Malaaysia today highlighted statement by Inspector General of Police, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim reiterating plan to revamp the top management of police.
It will be due soon after Hari Raya and many officers will awating the news with bated breath.
This is in response to recent arrest by MACC on the involvement of top officers in Melaka, D7 and Narcotic Division in money laundering and corruption.
One or few of the arrests could also be the handy work of problematic MACC officers [read previous posting here].
The general response by the few lower rung police officers contacted has been welcoming. It is good to revive the image of police. One reservation received is that the revamp done should be transparent and genuine.
Utusan Malaysia report below:

This blog had once expressed worry before that a "war" could break out between enforcement agencies. Following MACC campaign against enforcement agencies, particularly police, the suspicion is it will be soon.
Police did responded with the arrest of MACC officer, Rommy bin Ma'aruf. (Read in Harian Metro here.)
According to the blog Captain M here, the police-arrested officer was a problematic one and had a history. His errand ways for the past two years have now come to light.
MACC made it clear they will not compromise with officers taking bribes. (Read FMT here) They are willing to cooperate (Read M'kini here). An open and positive attutide exhibited by MACC (Read Bernama here).

There was outcry by the public on the big corruption case in Sabah regarding the Sabah Water Department.
To show court firmness on this matter of public concern, a huge bail sum on the accused former Sabah Water Department director Ag Mohd Tahir Ag Talib was set
Initially, it was set at RM10 million. It was then appealed and reduced RM5 million. Then, another appeal to drastically reduce to RM2 million. Despite that, the judge seemed to allow somewhat of a "layway plan."
And, some segments of the public are not happy with the decision.

The last words of a Tan Sri very close to Tun Dr Mahathir, meaning really close, after that morning breakfast in KLCC two years ago to correct the wrongful RM42 billion lesap figure of 1MDB is still fresh in the mind.
"You watch out Azmin."It was not long before that someone close to Mahathir, or it could be even Mahathir himself said, "Mukhriz is a weak leader".
So, as we see it, the current claim Mahathir is trying to place Mukhriz is just a political game.
"Boboi" is only doing a face saving after losing the Kedah MB post. And off course, fillial son helping and defending the father.

Indonesian President, Joko Widodo made another visit to the Natuna Island recently to witness a military exercise after a visit last year that sent a strong message to China of their opposition to their 9 dash line claim.
Jokowi told newspaper in November last year, "There is no compromise on sovereignty."
Last year, he visited Natuna on an Indonesian warship and held cabinet meeting on the warship that clashed with Chinese fishing vessels last year. Comment by senior Chinese officials on right of access made them nervous.
However, Natuna does not fall within the 9-dash line claim by China. Nevertheless, analysts see public view of China interest as a national security threat.
An FB here highlighted Indonesia had recently closed a Malaysian company telco installation on the island. Malaysia never made any claim on Natuna. Is the Indonesian now being unfriendly ever since China made large investment in Malaysia and there received paltry investment in a recent visit by President Xi Jianpeng?
Or ini semua wayang kulit Jowo, as the FB commented?

This is a sneak review of the Merdeka MRT station.
Saw this on Dato Najmuddin Abdullah of MRT Facebook few days ago. The clipping is not on You Tube so got a hacker to download from his FB to be uploaded here.
Work is still being done so MRT is not releasing the full video clipping.
It is also a sneak preview of one of the themed stations. For this one, it is Rukunegara, an important nation building statement.
By July, this station will be operational.
