Did Perak MB, state sssemblymen interfere rape investigation?


On August 2nd, Fatihah Jamhari, a lawyer and women activist wrote in NST to raise concern on the late progress of rape investigation involving a DAP state assemblyman and Perak exco member, Paul Yong.

Fatihah was not happy with the police attitude. MCA Woman Chief, Dato Heng Seai Kie was called in for investigation for making allegation forensic report was missing.

She is not totally wrong as no forensic report was attached in the first IP to AGC. It was only available one month after the incident.

Hannah Yeoh was vocal too albeit only on August 19th, but left untouched by police. Nga Kor Meng retaliated by revealing her grandfather was a communist.

Fatihah raised a long list of concerns and one worthy of highlighting is: Is he given special privileges because of his status as an assemblyman and a state exco member?

If not for public pressure, this case may have been buried and no prosecution.

TH Zukri only had angioplasty, Better spin Yati


Last week's posting on Dato Zukri Samat's resignation got noticed by Tabung Haji.

That story have been spreading for quite a while but there was neither denial nor confirmation from TH. His last day is on Merdeka Day next week but no official statement coming from TH.

TH's PR hitwoman, Datin Norhiyati's response is only to leak it for last Saturday's Weekly Edge to report as rumour.

Message likely from Yati claimed as follow:
FYI. Zukri stepped down due to health reasons. Tun M tak nnak accept until he showed all his med records. Daim takde kena mengena in TH and tak kacau. Eton position as board pun intact..
She used the health reason as story line. The Edge story looked lengthy, but said nothing new.

Mahathir cabinet reshuffling could break-up PH


Yesterday evening, a former opposition MP, whose party now is the ruling party, sent the following message:
Breaking news! 
Dr Mahathir told ministers at cabinet meeting today that portfolios will be reorganised. Tonight, he's meeting PH party leaders
Subsequently, he send a link from a Chinese newspaper, Oriental Daily reporting Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim did not attend the meeting and Dato Mustapha Mohamed to join cabinet.

Daim freezing relation

Earlier rumour heard was Tok Pa is to be made Economic Adviser to PM, and current adviser and possibly others linked to Tun Daim in PM office removed.

It was indicative of a cold front developing between Tun Daim and Mahathir. Those on Daim payroll but working with Mahathir will surely be in a dilemma.

S'pore frozen account of ex-BNM Governor's spouse?


Why? Why? Why?

Why must people share information of public concern and interest, more so matters that have grave implication for country with us?

When they share, we are obligated to God and country to expose, if not pose the necessary questions for the respective party to respond intelligently in public view.

Why must such responsibility keep falling on our lap?

While our contemporaries are comfortably retiring, we are still burdened with such conscience.

Fallacy of the Muslims argument in defending Zakir Naik



Those were the words of Zakir Naik that is in the centre of the current controversy. Tun Dr Mahathir have met him and defended the decision to allow him to stay.

His politics for politics sake nature saw the political need to make Zakir a controversy.

Before Zakir said those words deemed sensitive to Chinese, Indian and Malaysians of immigrant roots in Kota Baru, Mahathir dropped a hint that the government has no choice but to keep him. If sent back to India, he is a dead man. And no other country wants him.

It is either him giving new excuse to retain Zakir in Malaysia or giving fodders for the like of his fellow party man like Tan Sri Rais Yatim, Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz and Syed Saddiq to call for his extradition back to India. Typical Mahathir testing the water.

Mahathir was also throwing a spanner into the work. It seemed intended to anger the Hindu and Malay Muslims, in which subsequent solution will amaze the public with his brilliance and regain the support from both segment of voters for the waning PH.

Anwar to be PM by mid-September?


We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

Don't get fooled again - The Who
Seeing the current big hot issues of Lynas, Dong Zong, Zakir Naik, Koon Yew Yin and Jawi/khat issue unfolding, it just makes no sense.

The PH government has been in power for 15 months, but still blaming previous BN government.

However, these issues were systematically made to crowd the media are not disagreements between BN vs PH, but PH vs PH.

Do they not have Whass App groups to communicate among themselves?

While all these is happening, Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim seemed quite relaxed.

Media missed significance of Kimanis election petition decision

Gravity Hill along Jalan Kimanis-Keningau

There is a spot along the Kimanis to Keningau highway, where one gets the illusion of mineral bottle roll or standstill vehicle gradually move uphill against gravity.

There was a decision in court yesterday with regard to the status of the Member of Parliament for Kimanis, Dato Anifah Aman. The media wrongfully misunderstood the judgement.

Their report gave the illusion it is the end of his political carrer by reporting his win as conclusively null and void. Anifah could still roll uphill.

In the case of The Star, their subsequent report still missed the point:
