… at the MACC lawyer. abdul razak musa (pic left) during the cross examination of thai pathologist, pornthip at the teoh beng hock inquest yesterday. his name is abdul razak musa.

all quotes (including picture) taken from malaysiakini.

trying to question pornthip's credibility when she told him she is from the mahidol university in thailand:

"Did you know that the university that you graduated from is not recognised in Malaysia?" he asked, eliciting disgruntled murmurs from the gallery.

and pornthip prompty answerd that the university ranks no. 5 in asia.

haha! who cares if it is not recognised by malaysia? malaysia is a small not popular country. malaysia's own universities are not recognisable all round the world! of course malaysia don't recognised the university then!

Abdul Razak next had the gallery groaning in disbelief when he suggested that Teoh had strangled himself and was "depressive".

Interestingly, when asked by Gobind Singh Deo (right), who is representing Teoh's family, how someone can strangle himself, the MACC representative went as far as to demonstrate this on himself.

LOL!!  i can't believe a lawyer of 24 years (and he himself stressed it to pornthip – "i may be younger than you but i have 24 years experience) can, not only say that, but try to demonstrate that!!    

after suggesting that TBH had strangled himself, he can't differentiate between 'dead' and 'unconscious':

Glaringly, the lawyer quizzed Pornthip on why she said Teoh was dead when he fell off Level 14, (where the MACC office is located in Plaza Masalam) but alive when he hit the landing on Level 5.

"I accept that he was alive. I never said that he was dead," said Pornthip who has offered her services on a pro bono basis.

Visibly amused, the coroner stepped in to clarify that issue was whether Teoh was conscious or otherwise, not if he was dead or alive. This was to no avail as Abdul Razak remained bewildered.

ROTFL! even the coroner was amused, see…. but wait, there's more. he thought an unconscious body would weigh more if not unconscious!

He then puzzled the court when he stated, "If (Teoh) was unconscious, his body would be heavier."

Retorted the pathologist: "There would be no difference. Scientifically, how could weight loss happen according to consciousness?"

ok ok, now this has to take the cake! the court jester in full action:

In an effort to make his point, he asked if Pornthip has any experience jumping off a building.

ROTFLMAO!! if i have jumped off a building before, would i be alive to tell you so that i did? :_

malik imtiaz, lawyer representing the selangor govt, provided the laugh for us when…

Exasperated by the barrage of provocative questions Malik Imtiaz Sarwar – representing Pornthip and the Selangor government – stood up to say: "With questions like these, we would all want to jump off a building."

luckily i was not at the inquest to listen to him – i would have wanted to jump off a building if i were there.  



Incompetent IO Ahmad Nazri didn't follow protocol on 'note'

Pornthip: Investigator didn't follow protocol on 'note'
Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand today testified that, in the event of a crime scene investigation, any notes found should be immediately sent for forensic examination.

Questioned during the inquest into the death of DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock, she said this is the "protocol for investigations into death, especially for suicide" and notes at the scene of a death investigation can prove scientifically if a homicide had occurred, as the identity of the person who leaves the note is verifiable through DNA testing (through saliva on the envelope), and finger- and palm-printing.

NONEPornthip (right) drew from 25 years of experience as a forensic crime scene investigator in answering lawyer Gobind Singh Deo, acting on behalf of Teoh's family.
Ah...I wonder if this IO Ahmad Nazri is trained at all. 
He only 'found' the note after consulting the psychiatrist.
I think Ahmad Nazri needs to go to see the psychiatrist again to see if he's fit for the job!

Tindakan Abdul Razak Cuba Tegakkan Benang Basah Gagal

Posted: 18 Aug 2010 07:37 AM PDT

Tertekan dengan keterangan Dr Pornthip yang begitu tegas menyatakan bahawa Teoh tidak membunuh diri, agensi berita kerajaan, BERNAMA cuba untuk memburukkan perjalanan inkues dengan mendakwa beberapa individu yang hadir pada kes inkues hari ini menjadikan mahkamah seolah-olah tempat mendengar ucapan ahli politik dengan bertindak menepuk tangan dan membuat bising.

Menurut agensi berita itu, keadaan itu berlaku dari awal prosiding sehinggalah ketika Ketua pendakwa SPRM, Abdul Razak Musa (gambar) menyoal Pornthip.

Mereka didakwa melontarkan kata-kata kesat apabila Abdul Razak bertanyakan soalan kepada Pornthip dan apabila Pornthip memberi kenyataan yang tidak memihak kepadanya (Abdul Razak), mereka bertepuk tangan.

Situasi itu didakwa bukan sahaja mengganggu prosiding tetapi juga kononnya menyebabkan pihak media gagal mendengar dengan jelas.

Ada individu berkenaan diminta keluar daripada mahkamah setelah melontar kata-kata kesat kepada Abdul Razak.

Apa yang sebenarnya berlaku ialah Abdul Razak sendiri yang telah membuatkan mahkamah menjadi hingar bingar dengan pegakuan masuk bakulnya konon telah berkhidmat sebagai seorang peguam selama 24 tahun.

Di dalam satu sidang akhbar Gobind Singh Deo selepas inkues hari ini, peguam yang mewakili keluarga Teoh, berkata tindakan ketua pendakwaan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) yang mempersoalkan taraf pendidikan pakar patologi dari Thailand, Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand menunjukkan ketidakmatangan Abdul Razak sendiri.

Katanya Abdul Razak tidak memfokus kepada isu utama dalam prosiding.

Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, peguam yang mewakili kerajaan Selangor, pula menyatakan tindakan mempersoalkan taraf pendidikan saksi itu, adalah memalukan.

Ketika prosiding, Abdul Razak telah mengemukakan soalan mengenai taraf pendidikan untuk mencabar kewibaaan Pornthip. Abdul Razak berkata berdasarkan kelayakan Pornthip, ahli patologi Thailand itu kononnya tidak layak bergelar pakar di Malaysia kerana universiti di mana beliau belajar tidak diiktiraf di negara ini. Pornthip menjawab bahawa universiti tempat beliau belajar adalah satu daripada lima yang terbaik di Asia - mereka yang berada di mahkamah memberikan tepukan.

GB melakukan penelitian dan mendapati Asian Correspondent di dalam lamanwebnya yang menyeranaikan 10 universiti Asia terbaik meletakkan Universiti Mahidol di tempat yang ke 6. Tiada satu pun universiti daripada Malaysia tersenarai. Berikut ialah kedudukan 10 universiti terbaik Asia.

1) Yeungnam University, South Korea
2) National Chengchi University, Taiwan
3) National University of Singapore
4) Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
5) University of the Philippines
6) Mahidol University, Thailand
7) National Taiwan University, Taiwan
8) Yonsei University, South Korea
9) University of Hong Kong
10) Seoul National University, South Korea

Justeru itu Abdul Razak cuba untuk mengelirukan dengan merendah-rendahkan taraf pendidikan Pornthip yang ternyata beliau gagal melakukannya. Malah kelayakan Razaklah yang sepatutnya dipersoalkan.

Malah di dalam satu ketika Abdul Razak cuba untuk meletakkan dirinya sebagai koroner apabila beliau menyatakan hanya Pornthip yang memberikan keterangan berbeza selain dari keterangan 4 orang doktor yan sebelum ini menyatakan Teoh mati kerana terjun dari bangunan tinggi. Katanya pihaknya berkerja berdasarkan majoriti. Siapa yang mengikut majoriti? Koroner? Atau SPRM? Atau hanya cubaan Abdul Razak untuk mendesak Koroner supaya mengikut majoriti, bukan bukti?


Razak: Satu lawan empat...

Pornthip: Awak perlu hormat hakim (koroner) yang akan membuat keputusan.

Razak: Kita bekerja berdasarkan majoriti.



Kemudian Abdul Razak menuduh Pornthip menyandarkan siasatannya hanya kepada andaian dan berdasarkan kepada imaginasi sendiri. Sedangkan Abdul Razaklah yang sebenarnya berimiginasi.

Kita lihat:


Razak kemudiannya menyatakan kepada Pornthip bahawa Teoh mencekik dirinya sendirinya. Katanya, ini kerana empat daripada doktor telah mendapati bahawa tiada bukti menunjukkan Teoh dicekik.

Gobind bangkit dan mengarahkan Razak menunjukkan bagaimana seseorang mencekik diri sendiri. Razak menyahut cabaran itu dan cuba mencekik diri sendiri sambil digelakkan daripada mereka di mahkamah itu.


Bukankah perlakuan Abdul Razak di atas jelas menunjukkan beliau yang lebih menyadarkan kepada imiginasi?

Dan perilaku Abdul RAzaklah yang telah menyebabkan mahkamah menjadi hingar bingar dengan perlakuan anihnya untuk menegakkan benang yang basah?

Dan laporan Bernama menuduh orangramai menjadikan mahkamah seolah-olah tempat mendengar ucapan ahli politik dengan bertindak menepuk tangan dan membuat bising tidak relevan dan tidak betul. Sebetulnya peguam SPRM itulah dengan telatah bodohnya menyebabkan mahkamah menjadi demikian!

Extracts from TDM’s HIGH INCOME ECONOMY

Posted: 18 Aug 2010 07:04 AM PDT

Extracts from TDM's HIGH INCOME ECONOMY

  1. A high income country. means people will receive high wages, salaries and profits.
  2. But if wages and salaries are to be increased by the private sector, the cost of doing business would have to increase as well. Inflation!
  3. The cost of living would increase as prices increase. So the rise in income may not increase the purchasing power of the wage earners. If there is to be an increase in income, it must be carefully managed so that it would result in increases of purchasing power and not just more money.
  4. This can happen because the added cost of doing business may trigger unreasonable increases of prices for raw materials, goods (products) or services. For example a 10% increase in wages and salaries should not result in an increase of 10% in the prices of goods and services. This is because wages and salaries do not constitute the total cost of production.
  5. There are many ways for preventing unfair cost increases when wages and salaries are raised. But there are also many other ways of reducing costs so that the cost of goods and services to the consumer is not increased much as a result of increasing incomes.
  6. The Japanese "Just In Time" manufacturing process is a good example. In this system the parts and components are produced just in time for them to go into the assembly of the final products. This eliminates the cost of storage and holding costs.
  7. Automation and robotics are costly but they can work 24 hours a day and would reduce the cost of the three shifts of work by workers in one day. Assembly lines saved a lot of time. And time means money.
  8. The classic case of reducing cost was invented by Henry Ford – namely mass production on assembly lines.
  9. Economies of scale can also contribute to lowering costs. We see the progress in retailing goods. The single specialised shops have given way to the supermarkets. Now the supermarkets are being replaced by the giant wholesale hypermarkets. These help increase volume and lower purchasing costs. Self-service also help to reduce costs in restaurants and supermarkets.
  10. Various electronic devices can help in reducing costs. Because of additional capital needed for these devices, they contribute much when the volume is big.

    Incomes can also be increased by better education and training. (Good work ethics must be nurtured.) Obviously when a worker is more productive he should be paid higher wages.

  11. Manufacturing activities add higher value to basic material. Generally exporting raw material gives less return than exporting manufactured products.
  12. Japan and Korea acquire foreign technologies and set up their own companies to produce their own products.
  13. To create jobs for a large number of the unemployed, foreign investors were invited to set up labour intensive industries. Naturally wages were very low. Increased profits for the foreign owned industries did not necessarily result in increased income for local workers.
  14. East Asia countries, began to produce almost all the products of the West at lower cost. The workers of the West continued to demand for continuous increases in their wages. Very soon the high prices for their products caused them to lose the market.
  15. We should study the other ways of increasing incomes (rather than simply increasing the salaries) which will not lead to inflation and loss of purchasing power.

Nota Terakhir Hanya Direka Untuk Menuduh Teoh Bunuh Diri

Posted: 18 Aug 2010 04:37 AM PDT

Inkues Teoh: Peguam persoal integriti 'nota bunuh diri'

Peguam-peguam keluarga Teoh Beng Hock hari ini mempersoalkan kerelevanan bukti baru yang hendak dibawa oleh Jabatan Peguam Negara dalam inkues bekas setiausaha politik itu selepas pakar forensik Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand menegaskan, protokol ketat diperlukan dalam menangani bukti-bukti sedemikian.

Terdahulu pakar dari Thailand itu memberitahu mahkamah bahawa institutnya mewajibkan amalan protokol ketat dalam menangani bukti seperti dokumen seperti ujian DNA sebaik sahaja sesuatu bukti baru diperoleh.

"Kami mempersoalkan nilai bukti sedemikian," kata peguam Malik Imtiaz Sarwar kepada pemberitan selepas prosiding hari ini.

"Ujian DNA dan ujian pengesanan cap jari seharusnya dilakukan. Tetapi dalam kes (Teoh), ia tidak dilakukan," kata beliau yang mewakili kerajaan negeri dalam inkues ini.

Keluarga Teoh melahirkan rasa kecewa dan marah dengan langkah Jabatan Peguam Negara mahu membawa bukti ke mahkamah koroner sambil berkata ia diambil dari beg Teoh.

Minggu lalu, Malik membidas Peguam Negara Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail kerana mendedahkan butiran terperinci bukti terbaru — sekeping nota, yang dikatakan ada kaitan dengan inkues kematian Teoh.

Malik menegaskan, bukti terbaru itu belum lagi dikemukakan di mahkamah tetapi sudah pun diperincikan kepada umum oleh Peguam Negara.

Ekoran makluman di mahkamah kelmarin tentang nota spekulasi tersebar luas dengan ada yang mendakwa bahawa bukti baru itu merujuk kepada nota bunuh diri.

Kewujudan nota bunuh diri itu juga muncul di blog-blog pro-Umno.

Dalam kenyataannya minggu lalu, Pejabat Peguam Negara menafikan dakwaan mereka menyembunyikan bukti dalam inkues kematian Teoh selepas mengemukakan sekeping nota yang ditemui tahun lepas dalam beg sandang bekas setiausaha politik itu.

Penemuan bukti baru itu yang dimaklumkan awal minggu lalu menyebabkan prosiding inkues ditangguh sehingga ke hari ini.

Sejurus selepas penangguhan inkues, Pejabat Peguam Negara berkata ia dimaklumkan mengenai penemuan nota itu oleh pegawai penyiasat ASP Nazri Zainal pada 7 Oktober lalu iaitu lebih dua bulan selepas kematian Teoh.

Kehadiran bukti baru di saat akhir inkues kematian Teoh menimbulkan rasa tidak puas hati di kalangan peguam yang mewakili keluarga bekas setiausaha politik itu dan kerajaan Selangor.

Teoh, 30, setiausaha politik kepada Exco kerajaan negeri Selangor, Ean Yong Hian Wah ditemui mati pada 16 Julai tahun lalu di tingkat lima, Plaza Masalam di sini selepas memberi keterangan di pejabat SPRM Selangor yang terletak di tingkat 14 bangunan itu. -FMT

Ulasan GB

bukti terbaru itu belum lagi dikemukakan di mahkamah tetapi sudah pun diperincikan kepada umum oleh Peguam Negara

Ia jelas satu konspirasi yang diketuai oleh Peguam Negara.

Nota terakhir itu saja di ada-adakan. Tiada rakyat yang siuman boleh mempercayainya. Selain dari ianya rekaan, ia juga memnyusahkan banyak pihak terutama bagi membuktikan yang nota itu sahih.

Pembunuh Teoh yang sebenar MESTI dicari. Beliau masih bebas. Rakyat percaya ia masih berada di dalam SPRM sendiri.



GIVE IT WINGS!!

Posted: 18 Aug 2010 02:49 AM PDT

There was once a lonely girl who longed desperately for love. One day while she was walking in the woods she found two starving song birds. She took them home and put them in a small glided cage. She nurtured them with love and the birds grew strong. Every morning they greeted her with a marvellous song. The girl felt great love for the birds. She wanted their singing to last forever.



One day the girl left the door to the cage open. The larger and stronger of the two birds flew from the cage. The girl watched anxiously as he circled high above her. She was so frightened that he would fly away and she would never see him again that as he flew close, she grasped at him wildly. She caught him in her fist. She clutched him tightly within her hand. Her heart gladened at her sucess in capturing him. Suddenly she felt the bird go limp. She opened her hand stared in horror at the dead bird. Her desperate clutching love had killed him.

She noticed the other bird teteering on the edge of the cage. She could feel his great need for freedom. His need to soar into the clear, blue sky. She lifted him from the cage and tossed him softly into the air. The bird circled once, twice, three times.

The girl watched delighted at the bird's enjoyment. Her heart was no longer concerned with her loss. She wanted the bird to be happy. Suddenly the bird flew closer and landed softly on her shoulder. It sang the sweetest melody, she had ever heard.

The fastest way to lose love is to hold on too tight, the best way to keep love is to give it -- WINGS!

Hari Raya on Sept 11: American Muslims in fear

Posted: 18 Aug 2010 09:26 AM PDT

Perhaps many of us, especially the Muslims dont realise this - that Hari Raya Aidilfitri (1 Syawal) this year will either fall on Sept 10 or 11. In the United States, the American Muslims are living in fear that the end of Ramadan on Sept 11 will bring no celebration.

Muslims in America, particularly in New York City, are under sustained barrages of attacks. The latest in the salvo, is the palpable fear. Some in America seem to be subscribing to the silliness, that those who are not Christians and not of their ethnic group, are not entirely human.

They are afraid to celebrate Syawal. Thousands are now operating under fear of physical attacks. Many of them have publicly express fears of attacks as reprisal for the September 11, 2001, which has been tied around the necks of the Islam and Muslims, and as such, the fasting season this year ends coincidentally on or about September 11, 2010.

If they celebrate Syawal on that day, Americans will accuse the Muslims of celebrating September 11.

Soalbalas Razak Dengan Pornthip

Posted: 17 Aug 2010 09:29 PM PDT

Sambungan dari SINI.

Malaysiakini melaporkan:

Pada keterangannya itu, Pornthip juga memberitahu inkues bahawa tiada keretakan pada pergelangan tangan, yang lazimnya berlaku dalam kes apabila seseorang cuba melindungi diri mereka daripada kejatuhan dengan tangan.

Terdapat keretakan dan luka di atas satu daripada pergelangan kaki Teoh tetapi tiada dikesan pada dasar tengkorak mangsa. Justeru, Pornthip berkata dia tidak bersetuju dengan Vaneziz bahawa Teoh mendarat dengan kedua-dua kakinya dan mangsa sedar semasa jatuh.

Pornthip berkata kesan koyak di bahagian dubur dan kecederaan pada bahagian punggung adalah disebabkan akibat kejatuhan dan bukan kerana dipukul seperti yang disangkanya sebelum ini.

'Ini adalah protokol'

Sehubungan itu, Pornthip mempertahankan pendapatnya berhubung kecederaan sebelum kejatuhan tetapi tidak dapat mengesahkan bahawa Teoh sedar semasa jatuh. Beliau juga tidak mahu memberi peratusan punca kematian kerana kesimpulan berdasarkan laporan bedah siasat. Namun Porhthip pasti, kejadian itu bukan percubaan bunuh diri.

Malik selesai menyoal pakar patologi Thailand itu pada jam 10.45 pagi dan perbicaraan disambung dengan giliran peguam Gobind Singh Deo, yang mewakili keluarga Teoh pula untuk bertanyakan soalan.

Pornthip berkata berdasarkan pengalamannya sebagai penyiasat lokasi jenayah dan juga ahli sains forensik, sebarang nota yang dijumpai mesti diuji untuk DNA, cap jari dan cetakan tapak tangan pada kadar segera dan kemudiannya dihantar untuk ujian analisis tulisan. "Ini adalah protokol."

Bagaimanapun bota sedemikian tidak memberi kesan ke atas siasatan kerana ia dianggap bersifat emosi. Justeru, katnya, beliau lebih gemar bergantung kepada sains.

Ketua pendakwa SPRM, Abdul Razak Musa memulakan sessinya dengan cuba mempersoalkan kelayakan Pornthip sebagai saksi yang mempunyai kewibawaan.

Abdul Razak mencadangkan bahawa keterangan Pornthip adalah bersarkan imaginasinya. Pornthip menafikan perkara itu dan berkata kesimpulannya adalah berdasarkan pemerhatian dan kerjanya.

Abdul Razak berkata berdasarkan kelayakan Pornthip, ahli patologi Thailand itu tidak layak bergelar pakar di Malaysia kerana universiti di mana beliau belajar tidak diiktiraf di negara ini. Pornthip menjawab bahawa universiti tempat beliau belajar adalah satu daripada lima yang terbaik di Thailand - mereka yang berada di mahkamah memberikan tepukan.

Cekik diri sendiri

Razak kemudiannya mencadangkan kepada Pornthip bahawa Teoh mencekik dirinya sendirinya. Katanya, ini kerana empat daripada doktor telah mendapati bahawa tiada bukti menunjukkan Teoh dicekik.

Gobind bangkit dan mengarahkan Razak (kanan) menunjukkan bagaimana seseorang mencekik diri sendiri. Razak menyahut cabaran itu dan cuba mencekik diri sendiri sambil digelakan daripada mereka di mahkamah itu.

"Saya cadangkan bahawa anda datang ke mari untuk serang SPRM," katanya.

Beliau memberi beberapa kesilapan yang didakwa dilakukan oleh Pornthip tetapi dinafikan oleh pakar patologi Thailand itu. Menurut Pornthip, laporan yang dikemukakannya disokong dengan bukti saintifik.

Razak: Awak kata 80 peratus pembunuhan.

Pornthip: Saya telah terangkan. Awak mesti terima...

Razak: Apabila awak beri keterangan 80 peratus adalah kes pembunuhan, ia dilaporkan di semua media negara ini.

Pornthip berulang-kali menggesa Razak supaya membaca laporannya, tetapi ketua pendakwa SPRM itu berkata: "Saya habiskan masa tiga hari membacanya."

Orang ramai yang mengikuti perbicaraan kemudian mula berbisik yang menunjukkan rasa tidak puas hati mereka dengan cara soalan Razak.

Razak kemudiannya bertanya sama ada objek tumpul yang dirujuk oleh Porthip pada awal inkues pagi ini merujuk kepada kerusi atau benda lain.

Pornthip: Saya ingin tanya sama ada awak seorang peguam?

Razak: Mungkin, saya lebih muda daripada awak tetapi saya telah berkhidmat sebagai peguam untuk 24 tahun.

Ini disambutan dengan cemuhan 'wah' daripada mereka yang hadir.

Pengalaman terjun bangunan

Razak kemudian mengajukan soalan kepada Pornthip, bagaimana Teoh boleh mati pada tingkat 14 (lokasi pejabat SPRM Selangor yang terletak di Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam) tetapi masih bernyawa apabila sampai di bawah.

Soalan Razak semakin bercelaru dan menyebabkan koroner terketawa kecil. Azmil kemudian menjelaskan kepada Razak apa yang Pornthip maksudkan ialah Teoh berkemungkinan sedar semasa jatuh dan belum mati.

Razak: Dari Tingkat 14, 99 kaki dari atas tanah - dia tidak sedarkan diri, jadi badannya semestinya lebih berat.

Pornthip: Tiada perbezaan. Secara saintifik, bagaimana boleh berlaku kehilangan berat berdasarkan tahap kesedaran?

Razak juga bertanya kepada Pornthip sama ada dia mempunyai pengalaman terjun dari bangunan. Ini kerana ahli patologi itu dalam keterangannya berkata mayat yang dijumpai itu didadapti lebih jauh daripada bangunan berkenaan berbanding kes lazim membunuh diri dengan melompat.

Malik bangkit dan berkata Razak cuba 'memasukkan perkatan' dalam mulut Pornthip. "Cara dia mengajukan soalan seolah-olah mahu kami sendiri terjun!"

Razak kemudiannya mengulangi soalan kepada Pornthip bahawa pendapatnya adalah berlainan dengan empat orang doktor yang hadir pada bedah siasat kedua.

Razak: Satu lawan empat...

Pornthip: Awak perlu hormat hakim (koroner) yang akan membuat keputusan.

Razak: Kita bekerja berdasarkan majoriti.

Selepas Razak, giliran kerajaan yang dilantik oleh kerajaan Tan Hock Chuan memulakan soalannya.

Menjawap soalan Tan, Pornthip memaklumkan beliau tidak sependapat dengan keterangan Dr Shahidan bahawa kecederaan pada tengkuk Teoh adalah konsisten dengan kejatuhan.

Mahkamah koroner selesai menyoal-balas Porntip sebagai saksi pada jam 12.25 tengah hari.

Peguam Teoh meminta penangguhan kerana untuk merujuk bahan bukti baru (nota terakhir) kepad apakar kerana ia ditulis dalam Mandarin.

Koroner menangguhkan kepada 1 September 2.45 petang.


Pornthip: Kesan Luka Pada Leher Beng Hock Akibat Tekanan Melampau

Pakar patologis Thailand, Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand tampil membentangkan penemuannya hasil dari pemerhatian prosedur bedah-siasat kedua di inkues kematian Teoh Beng Hock hari ini.

Pornthip disambut dengan tepukan gemuruh para hadirian yang mahu mendengarnya beliau mengesahkan pengumumannya sebelum ini, bahawa setiausaha politik kepada Exco Selangor itu ada 80 peratus kebarangkalian dibunuh.

Selain dari patologis terkemuka dunia ini, bekas Ketua Makmal Forensik PDRM Amidon Anan turut menyertai inkues hari ini selaku pemerhati.

Sidang bermula dengan Koroner Azmil Muntapha Abas memanggil Pornthip ke kandang saksi. Beliau dipanggil untuk menjawab soalan dari peguam Malek Imtiaz Sarwar mewakili Kerajaan Selangor.

Pornthip berkata beliau menemui kesan hemoraj pada leher Beng Hock yang menjalar sehingga ke otot. Menurut pakar ini, kecederaan sedalam ini hanya boleh berlaku dengan tekanan yang kuat pada leher.

Dari pengalamannya mengendalikan kes jatuh dari ketinggian, mangsa jatuh tidak mengalami kecederaan sedemikian rupa.

Justeru beliau percaya tidak mungkin Beng Hock mengalami pendarahan serius pada leher akibat terjatuh dari ibupejabat Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia.

"Seseorang menggunakan sesuatu pada leher Teoh (Beng Hock), atau menekan kepala mendiang pada sesuatu," kata Pornthip.

Berdasarkan kepada kesan sembap pada otak, beliau tidak enolak kebarangkalian mendiang telah tidak menyedarkan diri semasa jatuh dari tingkat 14 Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam.

Laporan bedah-siasat pertama mendapati otak mangsa kekurangan oksigen akibat urat, arteri atau trakea yang tersumbat.

Sementara itu, Pornthip tidak bersetuju dengan pakar lantikan SPRM, Dr Peter Vaneziz bahawa kesan pada leher itu adalah akibat keretakan pada dagu. Beliau menjelaskan keretakan pada dagu adalah kecil dan tidak mungkin menyebabkan pendarahan yang melampau. -TVS





Indonesia: “What's wrong, Mr. President?”

Posted: 17 Aug 2010 05:30 PM PDT

By Carolina Rumuat

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono

The speech of Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on the eve of the country's Independence Day celebration disappointed many people, including netizens. Could this be a sign that the president, who secured a big mandate in the elections, is already losing the public support?

Lawmakers said[id] that the president's speech didn't mention some contemporary issues like sovereignty and consumer security.

For example, a fresh border spat between Indonesia and Malaysia took place last weekend when several Malaysian fishermen were arrested by Indonesian sea patrol for fishing on Indonesian waters. Polis Diraja Malaysia (Malaysian Royal Police) intercepted the fishermen's arrest and in return captured three Indonesian officers. The incident is currently under investigation and the release of three officers is being negotiated.

The deadly explosions coming from faulty canister of subsidized liquefied gas (LPG) continue to fuel anti-government sentiments in the country. The number of casualties is still rising despite intensified efforts to minimize accidents.

Puan Maharani, granddaughter of Indonesian first president Sukarno and heiress to a prominent political clan, said that president SBY's speech disregarded the people's welfare in general.

Critics noted that the president's appeal to all Indonesians about the need of "living harmoniously in a pluralistic society" is contradicted by his silence to the recent attacks against Christian congregations outside of Jakarta, the country's capital. He is also mum about the attack in the Ahmadiyyah community in West Java by Islamic Defenders Front, an extremist group that advocates Sharia-based laws in the secular country.

Relly Jehato, who blogs at Kompasiana blog network said that the speech was normative and lacking in sincere problem-solving plans.

Sulit memang untuk menemukan perubahan yang benar-benar masif pada pemerintahan SBY. Mengapa? Keberhasilan seorang SBY sangat ditentukan oleh kualitas reformasi pada berbagai institusi dan kepentingan politik lain yang menyertai dan menopangnya. Mulai dari jajaran birokrasi, aparat penegak hukum, parleman, partai politik, dan masyarakat sipil.

It's difficult to spot massive changes that SBY's government has promised. Why? Because its success should be determined by quality reforms of institutions and other supporting factors — bureaucrats, law enforcers, parliament, political parties and the people.

He concluded:

Persoalannya, sejujmlah institusi tersebut masih berada dalam kondisi sekarat alias sarat masalah. Ini diperumit oleh sikap SBY yang kerap bimbang, ambigu, tidak tegas, lamban, dan cenderung kompromisti. Kita pun lantas bertanya: apakah pidato SBY kali ini masih omong doang, sama seperti penilaian banyak kalangan?…Kita tunggu dan lihat saja…

The problem is that most of the institutions mentioned above are beset by problems and the president's indecisiveness and compromising nature complicate things (as part of the reform roadmap). Many wondered: was the speech an empty talk? (I guess) We should just wait and see..

Here are few comments from Indonesian Twittersphere:

@ekyamiruddin: SBY banyak dikritik orang. Dan tdk keliatan demokrat mendukungnya. Hmmm, what's wrong mr president ?

SBY criticized by many and Demokrat (author's note: his political party) didn't seem to defend their leader. what's wrong mr president ?

@SayRizal: Presiden SBY Pidato, Banyak pejabat yg tidur, BBan, Catur, dll, Contoh seorang pemimpin yang sudah tidak punya lagi wibawa #indonesia65

During his speech, many officials were either sleeping, updating their Blackberry, etc. An example of leader who's losing his charisma.

@bhe_es: @fadjroel :sedih rasanya mendengar pidato kenegaraan presiden SBY,,hanya berisi pandangan dan tujuan semu yang menjadi khayalan …

It's sad to hear that SBY's speech was filled with vague visions, goals, and imaginations.

Muslim Canada Tarawih Di Gereja, Bukan Macam Si Bebal Di M'sia.

Posted: 17 Aug 2010 11:37 AM PDT

Kristus Gereja Katedral Katedral Gereja Anglikan di Kanada, ibu kota British Columbia, di Victoria.

KL 18 OGOS 10: Gereja-gereja di kota Calgary, Kanada membolehkan penggunaan ruangan gereja bagi kaum Muslimin untuk melaksanakan solat Terawih selama bulan Ramadhan. Hal itu disebabkan sukarnya untuk solat jamaah di dalam Islamic Center kerana bertambah ramainya pesolat-pesolat tarawih di kota tersebut.

Imam Islamic Center di salah satu kota di Kanada mengatakan, "Gereja-gereja di lembah Simon telah sepakat membuka pintu gereja mereka untuk dilaksanakan solat Tarawih dalam rangka mengakomodasi jumlah umat Islam yang tidak mampu solat terawih di dalam Islamic center kerana melimpahnya jamaah." Jelasnya lagi, bahawa jumlah Muslim di kota ini dianggarkan berjumlah 85,000 jiwa, sementara masjid Islamic Center tidak mampu menampungnya kehadiran sebahagian dari mereka.

Komen Blog Ibnu Hasyim: Itulah keindahan tolerensi dan seninya dalam beragama, bahkan berlaku dalam sejarah Islam zaman Khalifah Umar. Fahaman dan pemikiran beginilah yang perlu diterapkan di negara kita yang berbagai kaum dan agama. Bukan macam tulisan si bebal bengap seperti di bawah ini..

1) Adakah ada orang Kristian benar orang Islam berdakwah di tempat ibadat mereka ?
2) Adakah tiada tempat lain untuk misi bertemu rakyat untuk berdakwah ?
3) Adakah logik ahli agama lain dibenar dakwah di tempat ibadat kita ?
4) Adakah ini tanda politik memperalatkan rumah ibadat sudah semakin berleluasa hingga sampai ke gereja ?
5) Apakah pandangan agama tentang hukum masuk tempat ibadat agama lain ?

Jawapan soalan kelima ada iaitu kita tidak diharuskan ke tempat ibadat agama lain tanpa sebarang urusan. Apatah lagi sebagai pemimpin bagi sebuah parti Islam sudah tentu perkara yang boleh menimbulkan fitnah perlu dielakkan.

Sekarang ini sudah banyak insiden seperti bukan Islam masuk ke masjid untuk tujuan politik. Mereka tidak lagi takut kerana sebahagian yang menyokong PAS sudah pun berjaya diliberalkan fahaman mereka hingga membenarkan masjid dimasuki oleh ahli politik bukan Islam.

Hingga kepada kalimah Allah juga diliberalkan batasannya kepada bukan Islam demi mencapai cita cita politik yang sedikit. Moga ALlah selamatkan Malaysia dan sekelian kaum muslimin… Amin!


J.D. Salinger’s Toilet For Sale on Ebay

Posted: 17 Aug 2010 11:59 AM PDT

J.D. Salinger Want to own the catcher in the loo? Sorry, sorry.

As a man who famously cherished his privacy and abhorred fame, I wonder what J.D. Salinger would make of the fact that his used toilet is up for auction. The asking price? A cool million dollars.

It seems the couple who purchased the Salingers' Cornish, NH home recently decided to replace the toilet and sell the one sat upon by the reclusive author's famous tush. And no, I have zero idea if this is legitimate or not (how would one prove previous ownership of a toilet?), but it comes with a letter of authenticity, ostensibly from the new owners.

Not Salinger's toilet. Just a picture of a regular toilet. DO NOT PAY $1,000,000 FOR THIS TOILET

Part of me thinks these people are opportunistic gremlins who should be ashamed of themselves for being greedy and cashing in. But part of me thinks if there is actually someone out there with a ratio of money to common sense SO SKEWED as to pay anywhere near a million dollars for a used crapper, then they deserve to be very, very parted from said money.

As for Salinger himself, I imagine he'd be disgusted by the entire debacle, and saddened at the declining state of humanity, and full of despair, and all that.

But maybe not. Maybe he'd find it funny, and have a laugh at the idea of someone daft enough to pay through the nose for the privilege of reverently worshiping the place where he disposed of his bodily waste. I hope so.

The world is weird.

Posted: 17 Aug 2010 01:15 PM PDT


Harga ayam masih didakwa mahal walaupun terdapat permintaan yang tinggi pada minggu pertama bulan Ramadan.

KL 18 OGOS 10: Berita yang disiarkan di bawah ini sebagai bukti bahawa Menteri BN tak pandai tadbir negara. Lhat lagi tulisan-tulisan di bawah ini..

Berita Kosmo! Online: Penternak ayam dituntut tunai janji.

KUALA LUMPUR: Beberapa persatuan pengguna menuntut Persatuan-Persatuan Penternak Malaysia (FLFAM) menunaikan janji mereka untuk menurunkan harga ayam selepas seminggu umat Islam menjalani ibadah puasa.

Sehingga semalam, harga ayam di kebanyakan negeri masih tidak berubah dengan ada pembeli terpaksa membelanjakan RM7 sekilogram untuk membeli ayam.

Dalam reaksi segera terhadap isu harga ayam yang masih mahal, Presiden Persatuan Pengguna Subang dan Shah Alam (CASSA), Datuk Dr. Jacob George mendakwa ia menjadi bukti sikap penternak ayam yang terus memanipulasi pembeli.

"Harga ayam masih lagi sama, tiada tanda-tanda hendak turun.

"Setiap tahun situasi ini berulang dengan persatuan penternak masih berdolak-dalik untuk turunkan harga sebab permintaan tinggi,'' katanya ketika dihubungi di sini semalam.

Pornthip: Not suicide - Better for Abdul Razak Musa to jump off the building!

Posted: 17 Aug 2010 10:41 PM PDT


NONEDuring the cross-examination by MACC prosecution head Abdul Razak Musa (left), Razak asked if Pornthip if she had experienced jumping off a building as she had testified that the body was found further from the building than in the usual case of suicide by jumping. Then Malik stood up to say that Razak was trying to put words into Pornthip's mouth and added, "The way he is asking questions makes us want to jump off ourselves!"
Razak put it to Pornthip that her opinion was different from that of the other four doctors who were present during the second autopsy and said, "One against four..."

Pornthip responded by saying, "You have to respect the judge (coroner) who will make the decision. Razak answered, "We work on majority."


Better for Abdul Razak Musa to jump off the building than to be alive and make a fool of himself!
