WEEKEND VIEW: Disabled Need To Crank Up The Decibel To Get Heard

Posted: 07 Aug 2009 09:00 AM PDT

I received an interesting email last week from a new friend I made recently. His name is Daniel Ahmad Sharani who lives in Petaling Jaya.

He writes:

"People often ask me if I was born a quadriplegic. The answer to that question is no," Daniel says, and went on to explain a little bit about his background.

"I was a healthy young boy who grew up just like any other 'normal' kid in the neighbourhood.

"'Normal', referring to going through phases of life in a conventional manner," he says.

Daniel points out that he managed to complete his education, both primary and secondary as an average student academically.

"That didn't come as a surprise because I wasn't just healthy but also an energetic kid who participated in numerous recreational activities even when books should be the order of the day."

Daniel was heavily involved in sports, especially football with the neighbourhood kids every evening, and even enjoyed some matches on a much higher level into his teenage years.

"And girls, they simply dig guys in football kit.

"Though I was no Romario, I had my fair share in the dating game too. Puppy love or not it was part of the normal phase many teenagers eventually get to taste.

"I enjoyed almost everything I did that at one point it actually crossed my thought that life can only get better once I was done with school and all the exam papers."

However, Daniel had no idea as to how his life would suddenly change.

"My vigorous lifestyle rudely came to a halt, hardly a month before my 18th birthday.

"I recall everything vividly," he says.

"That fateful day kicked off perfectly. Together with my best friend who had just purchased a brand new bike, we spent quite a bit at the nearby arcade we regularly frequented.

"Both of us were in our typical jovial mood while shooting some balls before proceeded to a different location to meet up with other friends.

"That's when it happened. Due to reckless driving, a lady knocked both of us (I was riding pillion) off my friend's new machine.

"To cut it to the chase, the tragedy took my friend's life and tragically changed my life forever."

Daniel's spine was injured, leaving him paralysed for life. And there was nothing much that medical science could do about it.

"Not quite the news that any almost 18-year old with a cute, ponytailed girlfriend to show off would have wanted or expected to happen in their lives," says Daniel.

It was only after he was discharged when reality started to set in for the teenager.

"It was a tremendous painful reality," recalls Daniel. "Never in my entire life had I felt so dejected.

"Once I used to think that life was full of promises within my reach, but now all I could do was to concentrate my thoughts on how to struggle just so that I could keep alive."

The accident kept Daniel down and depressed most of the time. Instead of tagging with his buddies like he used to, most of his time was spent at home.

In such a state, Daniel started entertaining thoughts of death as a way out of his problem.

The depression even started to affect his family members. Friends who used to laugh with him once soon stopped coming.

But it was Daniel's family who ultimately helped him pull through in life.

"I am thankful that my family stood by me all the way and were there for me as a much-needed morale-booster.

"I'd have 'kicked' the bucket by now if it had not been for the great support from their part.

"Looking back now, I wouldn't trade their love and support for anything, not even for a chance to walk again. Their role was vital in uplifting my spirit and leading me to bounce back to glory."

Daniel says that figuratively, getting back onto one's two feet again wasn't an easy task.

Especially when life in a wheelchair can draw unnecessary stares from the public as if one were an outcast or something.

"Fortunately, people don't stare at you as if you are a freak-show as much as they used to in the past.

"But I've learnt that it's all about our mental strength before you start everything else.

"Once that area is beefed up, you're game to challenge yourself to a bigger obstacle, like the outside world that can be mean to people with limited physical mobility.

"Generally, rationale-minded people are willing to 'wheel' with us to make the living environment friendly to all. But it all comes down to upholding our rights (that many in the community are not aware of such existence) and stand up for it.

"It's us in the disabled community that needs to get the ball rolling.

"It may still be a long way to go but without common voices sharing the common goal, it'll take a longer time before anyone can finally hear us.

"We need to crank the decibel a few notches up by more voices in order for the authorities to notice our presence and needs," concludes Daniel.

Place your goats and kids in a safe place when there are UN Jordanian Peacekeepers around

Posted: 07 Aug 2009 06:27 AM PDT

My memory was jolted when I saw the heading of news report in Malaysiakini titled "No proof of rape by UN troops found". "We sent a fact-finding mission in the localities in South Kivu and North Kivu where allegedly there were SEA (sexual exploitation and abuse) cases," MONUC force commander General Babacar Gaye told a press conference here.

If the investigation was done by the UN and they themselves found nothing, I would take that with a pinch of salt. Just like the bullshit artiste Kofi Anan, whose own son, Kojo was involved in corrupt practises like the U.N. Iraqi Oil for Food scandal. Further, when the scandal reached up to Secretary General Kofi Anan, involving his son Kojo, there was no mechanism in place to remove him from office.

Most UN Troops, from my mixing around with them are there for the money, maybe many would disagre with me, for the cheap sex too. Especially so, peacekeepers from Africa, Pakistan and of course the Middle East.

In Africa sex is casual, found out about that in Kenya, I would not so much blame them, I am not preaching here nor moralising. The loneliness and the boredom might have gotten to them. I also did mix around with troops from Nigeria and Zimbabwe. For the Middle Easterners, it is like they are out of a zoo, they taste freedom, after all most of them feel sexually deprived in their home countries. Even the pigging on alcholic drinks, the Saudis (soldiers) would stand in the hot blistering sun and swig cans and cans of beer, surprise, surprise buying the non kosher beer (Maccabees) from an Israeli PX, with their big pot bellies, hanging out. I am not saying that we Malaysians were saints either.

What am I blabbering about? The issue about UN Peace Keeping Forces that really takes the cake is about the Jordanian Troops. You would want to laugh until you double over. Remember Timor Leste, it was just too scandalous. If I was Jordanian soldier I would never be able to live it down. I will make sure that those scumbags don't, by blogging about it from time to time.

Jordanian UN Peacekeeper Sex Scandal Fri, Mar 25, 2005 at 12:03:19 pm PST - This is one of the more disgusting scandals currently plaguing the United Nations, but by no means the only one: Hushed rape of Timor. It caused outrage among East Timorese and Australian troops sent to protect them, raised tensions among UN peacekeepers to a deadly new level and caused senior UN staff to resign in disgust. The deployment of Jordanian peacekeepers to East Timor was probably one of the most contentious UN decisions to follow the bloody independence ballot. It was eclipsed only by the cover-up and inaction that followed when the world body learned of their involvement in a series of horrific sex crimes involving children living in the war-battered Oecussi enclave.

Children were not the only victims - in early 2001, two Jordanians were evacuated home with injured penises after attempting sexual intercourse with goats. The UN mission in East Timor led by Sergio Vieira de Mello (who was later killed in Baghdad) did its best to keep the matter hushed up. The UN military command at the time was only too happy to oblige.

Diggers drew guns in sex abuse clash By Mark Dodd March 21, 2005 From: AUSTRALIAN soldiers drew arms to protect themselves from Jordanian peacekeepers after a Digger blew the whistle on other Jordanian soldiers' sexual abuse of East Timorese boys. Corporal Andrew Wratten had to be evacuated and Australian commandos sent to protect Diggers in Oecussi, an East Timorese province in Indonesian West Timor, after he told the UN of the pedophilia that occurred in May 2001.

The Australians drew their Steyr assault rifles after being confronted by Jordanians armed with M-16s, in an escalation of verbal threats triggered by the betrayal of Corporal Wratten by a Jordanian officer in the Dili headquarters of the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor. Corporal Wratten, who was working at a fuel dump in the enclave, was told by a group of children that Jordanian soldiers had offered food and money in exchange for oral sex and intercourse.

The allegations involved East Timorese minors, all boys, the youngest of them just 12years old. "Wratten informed PKF (peacekeeping force) that he had been receiving complaints from local children about Jorbatt (Jordan Battalion) abuse," said a senior UN official who was based in Oecussi at the time. "A Jordanian officer in HQ informed Jorbatt that he had ratted on them. Wratten and his guys manning the helo (helicopter) refuelling pad in Oecussi town started getting threatened.

"There was one occasion where Aussie Steyrs were pointed at Jorbatt and Jorbatt M-16s pointed at Aussies." A secret report into the abuse, obtained by The Australian, led to the expulsion of two Jordanian peacekeepers after an investigation ordered by then UNTAET chief, the late Sergio Vieira de Mello, in July 2001. East Timorese human rights workers have confirmed the story. However, retired Australian major-general Roger Powell, the deputy UN force commander at the time, did not return The Australian's calls.

"As far as I understand, De Mello was very sensitive at the time to the harm such reports would have on the reputation of UNTAET, PKF - and by default himself," said one Western security analyst, based in East Timor in 2001. Jordan's key role in Middle East peace negotiations added extra sensitivity. In July 2001, a UN police specialist child interview team flew to Oecussi and spoke to 10 witnesses, including seven minors and three adults. "The unacceptable sexual conduct alleged was that a minor had sperm around his mouth," the resulting report says.

The board of inquiry found in its report that Jordanian troops regularly offered food and money in exchange for sexual favours from women and boys, including the procuring of prostitutes from across the border in West Timor.

It found it was highly probable that widespread sexual misconduct had occurred after the Jordanians took over from the highly regarded Australian paratroop battalion in early 2000.

So people, lock up your goats and kids, not necessarily in that order when Jordanian Troops are around. Ha,ha, hah. Extracts from East Timor Legal


Era Najib Altantuya : Hijau Tu PAS, Biru Tu BN

Posted: 07 Aug 2009 06:32 AM PDT

Rais Yatim kasi kompom, kerajaan BN akan mulakan empangan hijau, untuk menghalang pengguna internet Malaysia daripada melayari laman web biru yang lucah dan porno.

Bagus tu pak menteri. Benda yang bagus tetap bagus, siapa pun usahakan kami sokong, pak menteri.

Cuma nak ingatkan pak menteri, hijau tu PAS pak menteri. Biru tu BN, pak menteri! - Prof Hamirdin



Rais confirms 'green dam', says to shut out 'blue sites'

By Lee Wei Lian

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 7 — Datuk Seri Rais Yatim today confirmed the Najib administration is looking at putting an Internet filter to stop access to undesirable websites particularly pornography, but will leave bloggers to existing laws.

The information, communication and culture minister also took a swipe at "liberals" and told them to look at countries that had become "victims" of pornography.

"We cannot compromise on the protection of Malaysian children from pornography," Rais said when questioned about the Internet filter as reported by The Malaysian Insider yesterday.

"Those who refer to themselves as liberals or liberalism should look to those countries that have become victims where child sex has happened, the moral of pornography has become widespread. So the government will look at ways to overcome this problem," he added.

The minister appeared flustered and annoyed when members of the media posed questions on the proposed plan to filter the Internet as he wanted to keep the focus of the press conference on National Day celebrations.

When one reporter was half-way through a question on whether the government was in the process of tendering the Internet filter project, Rais abruptly cut in with a question on the journalist's background and media affiliation.

The interest in the topic of Internet filtering was not limited to local media as several international media were also present and keen to learn of the government's intentions.

A proposed Internet filter would appear to go against the government's commitment not to censor the Internet as part of the Bill of Guarantees under the national ICT initiative MSC Malaysia.

Most countries that attempt to censor the Internet, such as Iran and China, have come under heavy criticism as it is perceived as an attempt to clamp down on political dissent.

But Rais denied that the proposed Internet filtering was to stop bloggers from inflaming racial sentiments as mentioned by other media organisations.

"Bloggers will face the normal laws of the land (if they breach the laws)," said Rais, who has been at the forefront to curb bloggers, most of whom were seen as a catalyst for the ruling Barisan Nasional's dismal performance in Election 2008.

He added that he has directed the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission to look into how to overcome the problem of Internet pornography.

The veteran minister, who has been in government since Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's father's time as premier, said the government was still studying the filtering process, adding that it would only be implemented once every aspect of it was fully considered.

It is understood that four companies have sent in proposals for the Internet filter with a decision expected to be made in December by the National Security Council led by Najib.

Era Najib Altantuya : Terbongkar, Kesan Darah Di Anak Tangga dan Sebuah Bilik

Posted: 07 Aug 2009 06:12 AM PDT

Lawatan Koroner Azmil Muntapha Abas dan pegawai inkues ke pejabat Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) di Shah Alam telah menimbulkan lebih banyak persoalan mengenai kematian Teoh Beng Hock, demikian lapor malaysiakini.

Ini kerana kesan, yang mungkin darah, ditemui di ruang tangga dari tingkat 14 – pintu masuk utama ke pejabat SPRM – ke tingkat 15 pejabat tersebut.

Lebih banyak kesan terdapat dalam sebuah bilik di tingkat 15. Yang memeranjatkan ialah koroner dimaklumkan bahawa polis tidak mengambil sampel dari kesan tersebut.

Peguam Lim Lip Eng yang mewakili keluarga Teoh berkata, pada mulanya koroner dijadualkan melawatkan keseluruhan tingkat 14, tetapi para peguam meminta supaya dilihat sekali tingkat 15.


"Kami sedang menaiki anak tangga ke tingkat 15 melalui pintu belakang. Bila kami sampai ke tingkat 15, kami dapat ada kesan sepanjang dua kaki atas lantai anak tangga tersebut.

"Kami bertanya kepada pengarah SPRM (Selangor) mengenainya, tetapi beliau tidak tahu. Pegawai penyiasat polis berkata beliau akan memeriksa kesan tersebut," kata Lim.

Apabila tiba di tingkat 15, mereka tidak dibenarkan melihat setiap bilik di situ.

Lim berkata, mereka ternampak lebih banyak kesan pada satu dinding bilik apabila mereka melihat menerusi kaca pintu.

"Ia nampak seperti darah. Saya tidak dapat katakan secara pasti. Sekali lagi, kami bertanya kepada pengarah dan pegawai penyiasat dan mereka kata mereka tidak tahu mengenainya dan tidak memasukkannya sebagai sebahagian daripada siasatan," kata Lim yang juga ahli parlimen Segambut.

Ulasan GB

Tidakkah sepatutnya polis yang melakukan siasatan terhadap kes ini perlu pula dilakukan siasatan ke atas mereka kerana mengabaikan sample "darah" di anak tangga berkenaan?

Apakah motif polis tersebut mengabaikannya? APakah ianya sengaja dilakukan untuk satu "cover-up"?



Era Najib Altantuya : Skop Kajian Polis terhadap kematian Teoh Perlu Diperluaskan (Kemaskini)

Posted: 07 Aug 2009 04:40 AM PDT

Plaza Masalam Shah Alam menjadi tumpuan inkues hari ini dengan koroner Azmil Muntapha Abas bersama semua yang terbabit mengambil masa kira-kira dua jam di bangunan ini.

Plaza ini seperti umum tahu ialah tempat kejadian yang turut menempatkan pejabat SPRM. Tumpuan inkues ialah di tingkat 14 dan tingkat 5 dimana mayat Teoh ditemui.

Tumpuan juga merangkumi bilik Teoh disoal siasat, sofa yang Teoh dikatakan merehatkan diri diatasnya serta tingkap di tingkat 14 darimana mendiang dikatakan jatuh.

Bercakap kepada media selepas inkues, Gobind Singh Deo, peguam yang mewakili keluarga Teoh, memberitahu beliau mahu Polis menyiasat penemuan dua perkara baru yang ditemui semasa rombongan Mahkamah Koroner mengadakan lawatan ke Plaza Masalam hari ini.

Gobind bagaimanapun enggan menggulas lanjut mengenai penemuan berkenaan sebaliknya berkata ia akan dikemukakan di mahkamah.

"Kami melihat secara teliti tempat kejadian iaitu tingkat 14 pejabat SPRM dan juga tingkat 15 yang dikatakan ada sebahagian pejabat SPRM. Kami juga mengadakan lawatan ke tempat mayat dijumpai. Dalam masa itu kami telah pun memohon agar polis menyiasat dua atau tiga perkara baru yang kita lihat dan saya rasa pihak polis akan memberikan bantuan dan kerjasama.

"Saya tidak boleh beri sebarang butir kerana kita harap siasatan lanjut dapat dilaksanakan kita akan beritahu di mahkamah kemudian," katanya.

Dalam pada itu Gobind berkata, kesan sompek tingkap yang masih baru ditemui pakar terletak di ruang legar pejabat SPRM bersebelah dengan bilik pegawai penyiasat.

"Kita lihat ia sebagai ruang kosong, ruang legar yang tidak mempunyai apa-apa di situ. Ia bersebelahan dengan bilik pegawai penyiasat,"katanya.

Beliau juga menjelaskan siasatan polis setakat ini dihadkan atau berkisar terhadap dua teori iaitu Teoh terjatuh atau membunuh diri. Kata beliau siasatan polis tidak mencakupi teori kemungkinan Teoh dibunuh atau ditolak.

Teori itu kata beliau akan terus diikuti dan jika perlu beliau akan memohon koroner mengarah polis meluaskan skop siasatan.

Prosiding inkues akan disambung isnin ini.

"Isnin ini mahkamah akan diteruskan keterangan daripada patologi yang melakukan pembedahan. Selain itu saya difahankan tiga pakar termasuk seorang pakar pembedahan forensik, saya rasa ia akan mengambil masa keseluruhan Isnin dan Selasa. Hari Rabu kita akan teruskan dengan pakar forensik polis yang telah membuat siasatan di bangunan ini, mereka akan memberikan gambaran yang lebih teliti berhubung gambaran dan juga hasil siasatan dalam kes ini," katanya. -TVA

Era Najib Altantuya : Wabak H1N1 Semakin Serius

Posted: 07 Aug 2009 04:33 AM PDT

Angka kematian akibat wabak selesema A (H1N1) terus meningkat apabila seorang lagi disahkan meninggal dunia hari ini.

Sementara Oriental Daily dalam khidmat berita ringkas melalu mesej SMS menyebut dua orang menjadi korban virus wabak itu.

Seorang kanak-kanak 9 tahun dan lelaki 37 tahun dilaporkan meninggal di Hospital Kluang, Johor.

Semalam 14 orang dilaporkan menjadi korban virus pandemik itu - sehingga kini belum ditemui vaksin.

Seorang lelaki 57 tahun menjadi korban ke-14 dan kanak-kanak enam tahun pula ke-13 sejak dua minggu lalu.

Sementara itu Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak berkata wabak influenza A (H1N1) kini telah menjadi ancaman serius kepada negara dan menasihati orang ramai supaya tidak menghadiri majlis perhimpunan di tempat-tempat awam.

Beliau meminta semua rakyat mengambil langkah pencegahan secara menyeluruh ekoran angka kematian H1N1 meningkat kepada 14 sehingga semalam dan banyak sekolah dan institusi pendidikan tinggi ditutup kerana terdapat kes jangkitan.

"Kalau (majlis) perhimpunan itu tidak perlu, tidak perlulah melainkan ada sesuatu mendesak. Tapi bila ada perhimpunan, kita akan tambah risiko kita kerana penyakit ini akan merebak," katanya kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan Konvensyen Industri Sukan Malaysia di sini pada hari Jumaat.

Selain menangguhkan kegiatan di kawasan umum, Najib berkata langkah pencegahan daripada segi kebersihan boleh dilakukan seperti membasuh tangan dan memakai topeng terutama ketika berada atau hadir dalam majlis yang terbuka.

Di dalam satu perkembangan berasingan PAS Kelantan malam tadi telah mengadakan solat hajat memohon supaya dijauhi penyakit selesema babi atau influenza A (H1N1) daripada terus merebak.

Solat hajat itu diimamkan Adun Demit, Ustaz mohamad Mustafa diadakan di Dewan Zulkefli Mohamad, pejabat Perhubungan PAS Kelantan.

Selain itu solat hajat juga mendoakan Adun Galas, Chek Hashim Sulaima yang akan menjalani pembedahan kanser paru-paru di China esok supaya selamat.

Timbalan Pengerusi Kelab Penyokong Kerajaan Kelantan, Drs Zainuddin Awang Hamat berkata, solat hajat juga turut mendoakan supaya tuntutan royalti minyak berjaya menjadi kenyataan.

"Taklimat khusus berhubung rawatan Adun Galas di China diberikan Adun Melor, Ustaz Wan Ismail Wan Judoh yang baru pulang dari menziarahi Chek Hashim," katanya di sini.

Jerebu Vs H1N1

Posted: 07 Aug 2009 02:13 AM PDT

Gambar teruknya jerebu yg aku rakamkan tadi, kabus tebal..

Dari sudut jauh.

Bila jerebu ni, cahaya matahari pun takda panas sangat, redup je..



Salam to all & good day,
Hari sesak nafas betul dengan kerja yg cukup bertimbun kat opis tu, naik semak atas meja aku dengan kertas-kertas yg bermacam segala yg nak kene follow up, kerja betul2 dah macam kerbau balau kat sini, penat, sakit hati mcm2 ada, ntah kenapa le kalau kerja time shift pagi ni mcm hampeh betul, penat segala benda dari segi otak dan fizikal, maklum le aku ni kecil dan comel, jalan sikit je dah mula mengah, nasib badan dah dikurniakan dengan kesihatan yg cukup baik sehingga hari ni, masih mampu menaip dan masih mampu untuk berblog lagi, kalau tak sunyi sepi blog ni jawapnya.

Kat kilang ni pun tak terlepas dengan cerita pasal H1N1 & Jerebu, mcm2 benda menimpa negara kita sekarang ni, adakah ini satu musibah atau sekadar dugaan bagi umatnya di seluruh tanahair kita untuk menguji sejauh ana kesabaran dan musibah diri kita sendiri, tak cukup dengan H1N1, timbul pula dengan masalah jerebu, cukup pedih mata ni, tekak kering sampai batuk-batuk dibuatnya, sakit tekak tak boleh cakap, asyik kehausan je, nak minum air je kejenya, sebab tekak kalau sakit memang tak selesa, selera makan pun dh tertutup, takut juga kalau boleh jadi demam, ramai yg mula demam kat kilang ni, bila demam je, klinik tolak ke hospital besar, diorg suruh dok sana check lebih details, so bebudak kat kilang ni semua bila demam je sikit, terus medical leave.

Ramai betul yg tak datang, line prod boleh effect macam ni kalau kurang man power, tapi apa yg boleh kita lakukan adalah langkah2 pencegahan diperingkat awalan, itu yg lebih baik sebenarnya, kat kilang ni masuk kilang kene periksa suhu badan, dan ada pula yg siap pakai face mask, takut udara jerebu dan jangkitan kuman dari org yg kita tak pasti taraf kesihatanya, itu langkah bijak sebenarnya manusia macam tu, takut kerana nak sihat, bukan berani kerana kita tak takut, tu yg harus kita semua ambil iktibar, mencegah itu lebih baik dari mengubati.

Kita harus bersama-sama mulai sekarang ni mengambil langkah-langkah berhati-hati, jangan anggap diri kita ni sihat setiasa, kita ni manusia biasa, jgn taksub dengan diri sendiri, sebab org yg cakap besar sebenarnya, org tu biasanya akan terkena, bersyukurlah dengan kesihatan yg setiasa baik buat masa ni, kalau kita mampu teruskan kerjasama semua pihak untuk mencegak virus H1N1 ni, semalam aku ke bandar pun, ramai org yg dok jalan dikaki lima pun dah mula pakai mask, tapi takut pula bila org dh pakai mask ni, diorg ambil kesempatan, sebab bila dah pakai topeng muka ni, muka org dh tak kenal, so jenayah mungkin boleh berlaku, muka tak nampak, so senang le nak buat kerja.

Manusia ni selalunya akan ambil kesempatan dan kesempitan manusia lain, so kalau org mcm tu, hukumannya kalau terkena penyakit ni, baru diorg boleh sedar, tapi harap-harap takde le org yg akan buat perkara terkutuk tu, tengah-tengah org berhati-hati dan takut terkena virus ni, ada pula mcm tu, tak mau lah ok, kita rakyat malaysia, bertamadun dan merdeka, kalau nak jadi pailang mcm tu, bukan dibumi malaysia la, korg pergi dok dalam hutan tu tidur dengan binatang, sebab akal tu dh tak mcm manusia, kesiankan.

Untuk semua manusia yg ada kat malaysia ni, aku sarankan korg keluar lah rumah bila perlu, jgn ambil risiko terdedah kepada perudaraan yg tak sihat kat luar tu, dengan virus dan jerebu yg teruk sekarang ni, aku anggapkan kita lebih baik dok kat rumah dari keluar berpeleseran kat luar, kalau perlu gak keluar jgn lupa pakai mask korg tu, kalau takde pergi hospital dan minta kat sana, kalau tak pergi farmasi pergi beli satu, murah je la, baru rm1 sekeping, keluar rumah tu tutup muka dan jaga kesihatan selalu.

Era Najib Altantuya : Maruah SPRM RM2,400

Posted: 06 Aug 2009 11:59 PM PDT

Saya terpaksa berdiri empat jam ketika disoal siasat Pegawai Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM)," inilah luahan Ahli Majlis Perbandaraan Kajang, TAN BOON HWA ketika ditemui wartawan SAIDAH HAIRAN di Tingkat 7, Majlis Perbandaran Kajang, Selasa, 21 Julai lalu. Peliknya beliau disiasat hanya kerana membeli 1,500 bendera Malaysia sempena Hari Kemerdekaan ke-51 bernilai RM2,400.

Saudara telah disiasat oleh pihak SPRM. Boleh saudara ceritakan apa yang SPRM siasat?

TAN: SPRM minta invois membeli bendera Malaysia (bersaiz kecil) untuk dikibarkan dalam program Mesra Rakyat tahun 2008. Program ini sempena hari Kemerdekaan Malaysia ke-51. Bendera ini untuk Dun Seri Kembangan iaitu kawasan YB Ean Yong Hian Wah.

Bendera sebanyak 1,500 telah diedarkan pada 29 Ogos 2008 di pasar pagi Seri Kembangan. Jadi pegawai SPRM hendak bukti saya beli daripada mana. Betul ke bendera itu sampai ke tangan YB Ean Yong dan dibahagikan kepada semua penduduk. Harga semua bendera itu RM2,400.


Apa yang berlaku semasa dalam siasatan?

Mula-mula pegawai SPRM menggunakan cara lembut bertanya kepada saya. Tanya hal keluarga, saya belajar setakat mana, lepas itu tanya daripada mana beli bendera dan syarikat apa.

Saya jawab saya lupa. Pegawai itu kata, apa ini... yang semua itu (you) ingat, kenapa hendak tipu cakap secara jujur saja, (you) tidak beli, (you) tidak bekalkan bendera, (you) hanya mengaku saja dan jangan bohong.

Tapi saya cakap dengan mereka memang saya ada beli. SPRM tanya beli daripada mana. Saya jawab dari Johor. Saya kata, saya hanya ingat Johor nama syarikat dan nombor telefon saya lupa.

Pegawai SPRM tanya kenapa boleh lupa. Sepuluh tahun punya hal (you) boleh ingat, yang ini (you) tak boleh ingat. Kami sudah tahu memang (you) tak bekalkan bendera.

Saya jawab memang saya ada bekalkan bendera. Dia jawab ok, syarikat mana. Saya jawab tidak ingat. Dia kata saya tipu.

Apabila tanya soalan dia panggil saya duduk dalam satu bilik tanpa dibuka lampu. Dua pegawai SPRM masuk dan baru buka lampu. Mereka panggil saya dan suruh berdiri tegak (macam berkawat). Mula-mula saya berdiri kaki tak rapat dan tangan saya kedepan.

Pegawai SPRM suruh saya berdiri kaki rapat dan tangan ke tepi. Mata pandang dengan jarak 200 meter. Dengan suara menjerit pegawai SPRM tanya tentang pembekalan bendera.

"You datang dari China tak tahu cakap bahasa Melayu. Apa you cakap saya tak faham," dua orang pegawai itu kata kepada saya. Mereka keluar dan pandang saya dari luar.

Pegawai yang di luar main ping pong. Saya pandang mereka main ping pong dan mereka menjerit apa tengok, tuan saya tak suka dia tengok kita.

Dua pegawai SPRM masuk ke dalam bilik saya. Seorang pegawai menunjukkan telunjuk jari ke dahi saya dan marah dengan mengatakan saya, bodoh... bodoh... bodoh, sebanyak tiga kali. Dia buat acahan hendak pukul saya.

Mereka bergilir masuk dalam bilik saya. Satu orang duduk, yang lain masuk. Seorang pegawai bercakap kepada saya, tengok cara 'bos' saya duduk memang tidak gembira.

Selepas pukul 2 pagi pegawai SPRM baru cakap dengan saya, kesian dengan (you) duduk la. Dia cakap, tak apalah (you) boleh tidur.

Berapa jam saudara disoal siasat?

Saya disoal siasat bermula 15 Julai jam 10 malam hingga 2 pagi 16 Julai. Dia tanya saya tentang bendera hari kemerdekaan saja. Saya jawab, saya boleh buktikan beli bendera tapi bagi saya masa, saya balik cari invois.

Dia kata kepada saya, (you) ahli Majlis you mesti jujur tapi saya dapati you tak jujur. Apa yang you buat bukan untuk tolong rakyat. Dia tanya saya, you sayang isteri... Saya jawab, sayang. Pegawai itu tanya saya lagi, sayang anak tak dan berapa banyak you sayang anak.

Pegawai SPRM tanya lagi tentang invois, saya jawab tidak ingat. Dia tanya, you tak sayang anak dan isteri. Besok saya bawa isteri dan anak you ke sini. Bagi you menangis depan anak you .

Bagaimana keadaan bilik tempat saudara disiasat?

Lampu kadang-kadang dibuka dan kadang-kadang ditutup. Keluasan bilik lebih kurang 10 kaki x 10 kaki. Pejabat SPRM banyak bilik. Saya tidak ambil peduli keadaan bilik dan cermin tingkap macam mana. Sebab saya tidak terfikir keadaan ini (kematian Teoh) akan berlaku. (Beliau mengeluh dan kelihatan matanya berair)

Adakah masa yang sama saudara tahu Teoh Beng Hock turut disoal siasat?

Masa itu saya tidak tahu Teoh ada di sana. Hanya jumpa Teoh pada Subuh 16 Julai (Khamis) bila saya pergi tandas. Saya nampak dia jalan di ruang makan pejabat SPRM. Saya tegur dalam bahasa Cina; Teoh masih ada di sini. Saya ingat keluar tandas saya hendak jumpa dia tapi dia sudah tiada.

Maknanya, waktu Subuh saudara masih di pejabat SPRM?

Ya, Subuh dan saya dibenarkan balik ke rumah jam 1.35 tengah hari 16 Julai. Pagi itu saya nampak Teoh sihat, cuma nampak letih. Sebab tidur pun tidak boleh, banyak nyamuk. Saya tidur atas lantai beralaskan karpet.

Saudara balik ke rumah pukul 1.35 tengah hari, masa mayat Teoh ditemui?

Apa yang surat akhbar tulis, tapi saya langsung tidak tahu.

SPRM ada datang ke rumah saudara, apa yang mereka ambil dan adakah mereka menunjukkan waran untuk memeriksa rumah saudara?

Mereka memang tidak profesional, tidak ikut prosedur. Mereka masuk rumah saya tanpa waran. Mereka datang pada 15 Julai jam 4 petang. Tiga orang pegawai masuk rumah dan seorang tunggu dalam kereta. Mereka ambil lima pasport, satu cop syarikat dan dua buku bank.

Selepas itu mereka suruh saya pergi ke pejabat SPRM dan isteri saya perlu pergi sekali. Saya kata kalau isteri saya pergi siapa hendak jaga anak saya. Selepas itu dia tidak paksa isteri saya.

Adakah saudara setuju Suruhanjaya Diraja ditubuhkan?

Saya sangat setuju perlu tubuhkan Suruhanjaya Diraja untuk menyiasat kes ini. Supaya kes ini disiasat secara adil untuk semua pihak. Ini kerana saya menjadi saksi tetapi saya disoal siasat macam saya 'suspek'. Saya disuruh berdiri.

Saudara rapat dengan Teoh?

Saya rapat. Dulu mendiang jadi wartawan. Saya kenal dia masa demonstrasi di Cheras. Tahun lepas dia jadi Setiausaha Exco. Saya sudah kenal dia selama tiga tahun. Dia orang yang baik, penyayang, sabar. Kami buat program Mesra Rakyat sama-sama. Dia baik hati, memang bagus, saya tidak pernah tengok dia marah.

Saya tengok dia boleh selesaikan banyak perkara. Masa program mesra usia emas dia jadi ketua bagi Dun Seri Kembangan. Memang bagus, memang sayang...(Tan tunduk, air mata berlinang...)

Saya ingat masa itu (tahun lepas) Teoh telefon saya tanya boleh tolong carikan bendera hendak guna hari Ahad. Pembekal bendera sudah habis stok. Saya cari di internet dan dapat di Muar, Johor. Saya bagi dia harga dan dia setuju, saya terus buat pesanan.

Masa itu saya tidak ambil berat tentang resit pembelian perlu disimpan. Tapi nasib baik resit itu ada kalau tidak lagi teruk.

Apakah saudara berasakan menjadi ahli PBT Pakatan Rakyat tidak bebas?

Betul, kita kena berhati-hati.


jika BN berani sila Beri peluang untuk pendemonstrasi jalanan bersuara!

Posted: 06 Aug 2009 11:13 PM PDT


Is there any other means of business to show their dislike to the BN monarch? None could be better than street protest.

They already know that street demonstrations only bring chaos when the government's dogs came crashing.

But they still love it. They are addicted to it. It's their choice of drug. 

Well, how can you deny them their right to their drug of choice. You approved pusat serenti for drug addicts? You spent million of our money just to shelter these people who just want to have fun. 

On the other hand, the street protestors are not there for fun. They want to parade their unity. They want to prove a point to the government. They wanted to change the government or they wanted the government to change itself.
Although their way might not be the best, it is the only way they have. The only amunition in their arsenal. They wanted to stop the country from demolition by the BN. It is what their thought is and was. No malice!

Currently, the BN monarch is barking mad. Telling the protestor to stop tarnishing the country image. The protestor must stop because it is not helping the economy. Hawkers are mad, because FRU and some dogs had ruin their stalls!
Wait a minute! Who ruin their stall again?
Aaaaah... FRU! It's not them protestors. It's the damned government arm! 

Again, and again, the government is ruining everybody lives.

My million dollars worth of thought here are, the government should try to protect everybody including the protestor, the FRU and their dogs, and of course the public at large and the hawkers. 

If they don't want to ruin the hawkers business, then let the protestors be. These people will bring in money to the stall owner. Every now and then these people will get hungry and thirsty. Where else would they go. Of course they'll go to the hawkers at bay. 

When you fire your tear gas into the public, you hurt everybody! Don't fire the tear gas and nobody will get panicked. The public will be orderly and serene.

Let the protestor be protestor. Let them send their memorandum.

Will the memorandum have any effect? Of course not!
BN controlled the Kings since merdeka day and beyond that.

So what was the fuss around the protestors and their demo?
Another BN ploy to scare the people from joining the Pakatan Rakyat.

I say to the government. Stop tarnishing the country image by showing the ugly side of the FRU to the world. 

You choosed to care for the drug addicts, so you better care for them protestors too!
Oiii! The protestors are Maalaysiiaaaan, same status quo as those drug addicts you protects in those cozy serentis.

You said the protestors are paid. So, what's your problem. Payment aren't made using your belanjawan negara! With the money they have, they could spend, and the economy will flourish. When the economy flourished, every citizen will be happy!

What do these protestors need?
Not much actually! Just a plain football field or padang polo. Some PA system. And of course, some thousands volunteers to listen and applaud and make noises.

It is a thousand times cheaper than caring for those drug addicts in Serentis all over the country.

I say, next time, please provide the permit and place for these protestor. Let the protestor have their choice of drug. Designate an area for them to protest peacefully and everybody will be happy!

Dr M: Demo bukan pilihan jika ada cara lain...
Ogos 7, 09 12:57pm
Demokrasi mengizinkan demonstrasi, tetapi apabila cara lain terbuka luas, demonstrasi tidak sepatutnya menjadi pilihan, kata Mantan Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

"Demokrasi mengizinkan demonstrasi. Sama ada demokrasi menguntungkan pengamal bergantung kepada pengamal. Jika pengamal tidak faham cara mengguna demokrasi, kebaikan dan keuntungan tidak akan tercapai," tulis Dr Mahathir dalam blognya hari ini.

Budaya demonstrasi, menurut Dr Mahathitr, adalah datang dari luar. 

"Memang dalam keadaan terlalu tersepit dan tidak ada cara lain untuk memperjuangkan sesuatu, demonstrasi jalan terpaksa diadakan. 

"Demikian semasa melawan Malayan Union, orang Melayu berdemonstrasi. Tetapi apabila cara lain terbuka luas demonstrasi tidak sepatutnya menjadi pilihan," tulisnya lagi.

Menurutnya, ini kerana yang menjadi mangsa bukan kerajaan sahaja.

"Yang jadi mangsa ialah peniaga, terutama peniaga kecil yang kais pagi makan pagi, kais petang makan petang. Bagi mereka ini demonstrasi adalah mala petaka yang lebih buruk daripada hujan lebat. 

"Barangan jualan terutama makanan sudah disiap dan tidak boleh disimpan. Kerugian sehari tidak dapat ditampung dengan keuntungan 10 hari atau lebih," tulisnya. 

'Pelabur jadi curiga'

Menurut Dr Mahathir lagi, peniaga lain juga akan tanggung kerugian. 

"Tetapi kerugian yang terbesar ialah pembangunan negara untuk rakyat. Kita sedar bahawa pembangunan negara membawa banyak nikmat kepada seluruh rakyat. 

"Banding sahaja pendapatan per kapita sebelum Malaysia dibangun dengan selepas kemajuan dicapai," tambahnya.

Menurutnya lagi, apabila demonstrasi jalanan diadakan, pelabur sama ada tempatan atau asing akan curiga untuk melabur.

Suri, moden dan merasakan kemerdekaan itu hanya pada nama.

Mengapa perlu riuhkan sangat pasal kemerdekaan ini?
Ini bukan zaman aku.
Zaman aku semuanya dah ada.

Cempaka, si gadis yang merasa tersepit diantara cinta dan adat istiadat bangsa sendiri.
Jatuh cinta, tapi, bukan pada jejaka pilihan keluarga.
Lebih padah, kekasih hatinya, berlainan bangsa.

Mendulang harapan cinta yang terhalang.
Berdosakah aku menjalin cinta berlainan cara?


Seow Long, pemuda Cina yang merasakan pedihnya cinta apabila perpaduan menjadi halangan.
Sanggup merentas lautan tapi, tidak sanggup melanggar adat masyarakat demi cinta.

Datangnya aku bukan untuk melukai mu,
apatah lagi menodai kesucian adatmu.

Tiga insan. Satu cerita.Satu cinta.

Era Najib Altantuya : Pintu Bangunan SUK Ditutup, Kerajaan Zambry Tidak Mesra Rakyat

Posted: 06 Aug 2009 10:09 PM PDT

Beberapa pihak di sini, kurang berpuas hati dengan tindakan dan pentadbiran pengurusan Bangunan Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri (SUK) mengunci pintu pagar utama ke bangunan itu.

Kedua-dua pintu masuk itu dikunci dan hanya pihak tertentu serta mempunyai urusan penting sahaja dibenarkan masuk. Ini disifatkan sebagai kerajaan negeri tidak mesra pengguna dan kejadian mengunci pintu pagar juga menyusahkan rakyat.

Kordinator Flat Taman Pertama, R Mogana Rani berkata, tindakan itu menunjukkan kerajaan negeri tidak mengaplikasikan slogan Perdana Menteri iaitu rakyat diutamakan.

Beliau yang ditemui di pekarangan SUK di sini, meluahkan rasa kecewanya apabila beberapa ahli jawatankuasa flat berkenaan tidak dibenarkan masuk dalam kawasan itu.

"Kami sampai di sini kira-kira jam 10 pagi dengan tujuan untuk menyampaikan memorandum kepada Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir.

"Walaupun kami seramai 11 orang, tetapi kami datang berasingan dan mereka yang datang awal dibenarkan masuk, manakala beberapa orang yang datang kemudiannya tidak dibenarkan masuk tanpa alasan munasabah," katanya.

Katanya, apabila mereka mempersoalkan tindakan itu, beberapa pegawai mendakwa bangunan SUK akan dikunci selama dua minggu atas sebab tertentu termasuk alasan politik.

Mogana berkata, keadaan itu menggambarkan seolah-olah sesuatu yang buruk akan berlaku di bangunan berkenaan pada bila-bila masa.

"Perbuatan pihak pentadbiran SUK ini juga seolah-olah tidak menghormati hak rakyat dan melayan rakyat dengan tidak bersopan. Kami datang sebagai rakyat dengan niat untuk menyampaikan masalah kami kepada Menteri Besar, tetapi kami pula dihalang.

Mbah Surip


Renowned Indonesian reggae singer Mbah Surip died at Pusdikkes Hospital in East Jakarta on Tuesday. He was 60 years old.

Surip rose to fame with the hit song "Tak Gendong" ("I Will Carry You On My Back"). The song also added at least Rp 4 billion ($400,000) to his bank account.

Mbah Surip died at 10.30 a.m on the way to Pusdikkes Hospital in East Jakarta, according to Tarzan, a close friend of Surip. He was taken to the hospital from a house belonging to Mamiek Prakoso, a comedian from Srimulat.

Metro TV reported that witnesses saw Surip's mouth was foaming when he reached the hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. He was known to be addicted to coffee and was a chain smoker. The media is still awaiting confirmation from the deceased's family.

Surip was a street artist almost all of his life.

Mbah Surip was recognizable by his braided hair and hearty laugh. His signature greeting was "I love you full," which he would say over and over to everyone he met.

"I love singing and I don't mind doing it non-stop, once I sang for 60 hours with only a little sleep, but I'm happy," Surip once said in an interview with SCTV.

Surip will be buried at 10 a.m. Wednesday in Bengkel Teater Cemetery in Citayam, Depok, West Java.


Bro Rick Says....
Kesemua lagu-lagu beliau yg berentak reggae agak unik dari segi susunan muziknya, ada boleh seacrh di Youtube untuk mendengar lagu nyanyian beliau.....
