When Malay politics get filthier...

Posted: 25 Mar 2011 10:19 AM PDT

I am saddened by the latest political development. I guess many of us, especially the Malays agree to my opinion that the Malay politics are getting filthier each day.

While PM Najib is proud of the 'new political model' which helps solve many issues within the ruling party, Umno is becoming more vulnerable to politics of a la Mafia. In other word, 'Islam' does not make them a matured race.

I am not sure what is the take here. What is there for rake. When former Melaka CM Rahim Tambychik and his two friends in the 'Datuk T' team exposed the sex video purportedly starred Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim and an unidentified woman, I began to contemplate what sort of politics were involved.

Many Malays, including Umno leaders like it. They enjoy it so much that Bukit Aman and Home Minister Hishammuddin didnt do anything to contain it.

I recall the time when Chua Soi Lek's sex video was in the market. And many years ago when the cartridge containing the 'self-recorded' sex scenes of former Dewan Rakyat deputy speaker D P Vijandran went into circulation, the Home Ministry and the police were quick to issue warning - that whoever was in possession of such materials would be nabbed.

However, the latest sex scandal seems to become a hit. The police didnt take any action against those who have it. Rahim and Co in fact was given a 'soft permission' to call up members of the media for a sneak preview of the video.

Whether Anwar really is the star of the movie of not, is not the issue. The point here - why didnt the authority act on those in possession of the porno video? And now that it is already in circulation, the chance to retrieve and halt it is almost impossible.

Why let Rahim and Co be given the privilege and 'immunity' to conduct the preview? If I am the IGP or Home Minister, I would reprimand Rahim and friends when they surrender the videos to the police yesterday. They should be put to question.

So, when Anwar and some quarters hurled accusations that some police personnel were involved in making the 'movie', we found it not easy to come up with a denial because our actions were in 'collaboration' with Rahim and Co. Why didnt anybody question their motive?

I am not for Anwar. I wont let him get a chance to become our No. 1 leader but lots of sympathy is going for him. Rahim has provided good ammunition to Anwar and the Opposition for them to fire back at the government during Sarawak State election on Apr 16 and probably general elections later this year. Yes, it actually backfires!

Malay politicians, journalists and bloggers are also riding high on this issue. Apart from Rahim, so many others are trying to become hero in killing Anwar. Almost each and every one of them wants some credits in it.

As I mentioned in my previous posting, it was not a surprise that it came from Rahim as Anwar his No.1 enemy for what happened in the early 1990s. His two friends were just taking a free ride - one lousy businessman while the other a cheap politician.

So, what is the direction of Malay politics from now on? Sex scandal is becoming a popular tool to kill someone. Create or dub it, out they go. Soi Lek was lucky because MCA members recognise his ability to lead while the sex scandal is his personal, very personal matter.

Info Minister Rais Yatim too was almost shattered by such politics when bloggers and journalists - whether they are pro or against the govt - 'worked together' in manipulating his maid issue. And all of them are Malays, the MELAYU (take out the ME, they will forever remain LAYU).

I dont think this is the new political model mentioned by Najib yesterday. Or is it just part of? Sooner or later, more sex elements would be used to bring down someone. When all Malay politicians are so engrossed to become heroes in Anwar's case, Umno members and the rakyat remained neglected, nobody to fight for their cause.

Anwar is becoming the top priority among the Malays, within Umno politics. Whether there is a cahoot against him or not, I couldnt be bothered. He still gotta settle his court case because the more it drags on, the more it will excite Malay politicians.

In the end, what will happen to the rest of our priorities - jobless, poverty, spiraling prices, low wages, education, moral decays among youth, etc? Who will attend it? Barack Obama? Or Osama bin Laden...or Netanyahu?

But why not? Our politics are already at par with theirs - where murders and sex scandals are the Malay politics main agenda!


EZAM HAS AWAKENED FROM HIS SLUMBER

Posted: 25 Mar 2011 09:18 AM PDT

Ezam Md. Nor (a Senator…mind you) is reported to have urged the authorities (presumably referring to the Immigration Department or may be KDN minister Hishamuddin himself) to impound Anwar Ibrahim's passport to prevent him (Anwar) from going abroad and tarnishing the country's image.

This turncoat Ezam who become famous for declaring to having in his possession several boxes of what is thought to be documents relating to the corrupt practices of BN/UMNO leaders, has once again opened his big mouth. I am still waiting to see the contents of the boxes which will never appear for as long as he is being salaried by the government. Hopefully he will be rewarded with a Datukship soon for being a loyal servant. May be, when he is out of a job, he may once again try to threatened the government with the famous boxes.

If indeed Ezam is so concern about Anwar's tarnishing the country's image abroad, what about the involvement of the famous Thamby (Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik) with the latest video that purportedly shows Anwar as the main porno actor. In comparison to Anwar's alleged bad mouthing abroad, this latest bluff by the three morons (including the famous Thamby) has hurt the image of the country even more. Malaysia is no longer being looked upon as a model Muslim nation that practices inter-racial and religious tolerance, but a nation that is fast on the decline due to incompetency by some of its leaders. Honestly, I have never been so angry and fed-up until this story of the sex video that only shows how mean and dirty Malaysian politics can be. All the fuss about Anwar being the porno actor has now fizzled out.

Since the sex video story was out, I browsed through a number of blogs (reading the mainstream papers no longer interest me) that writes about the sex video story. One is surprised to read the comments from viewers that express nothing else but anger and frustration at what they see as a decay in the moral values of our politicians, where even those with honorific titles of Tan Sri and Datuk can stoop so low to involve themselves with such an immoral and disgusting act. I am already beginning to feel ashamed to be called a Dato, but on second thought I do not mind it, now that I am truly a full-fledged Datuk with four lovely grandchildren.

I sincerely hope that the police will do a good job this time to nail all those involved in this scandalous sex story about Anwar Ibrahim. If indeed Anwar was involved, he should rightfully go to jail. But if it is not, then all the perpetrators (even if they carry the honorific title of Tan Sri and Datuk) should be thrown into jail and be left there to rot. And should all the perpetrators escape the jail sentence due to the famous 'insufficient evidence' finding, then they will all have to wait until they are buried to be tried in the hereafter.

So Ezam, what have to say now?

CRUSADE AGAINST CORRUPTION


Amaran Ahli Sains: Bukti DNA Boleh Dipalsukan & Diletakkan Di Lokasi Jenayah

Posted: 25 Mar 2011 09:33 AM PDT

Ahli-ahli sains telah membuktikan wujud kebarangkalian pemalsuan bukti DNA, sekaligus berpotensi memusnahkan kredibiliti teknik utama forensik.

Dengan menggunakan peralatan yang boleh dijumpai di makmal-makmal di seluruh negara, mereka melenyapkan semua kesan DNA dari sampel darah dan menambah bahan genetik individu lain pada sampel tersebut.

Pemalsuan ini sangat berjaya sehingga mampu memperdaya ahli-ahli sains yang menjalankan ujian DNA cap jari di mahkamah-mahkamah di Amerika Syarikat.

Perkembangan ini menimbulkan kemungkinan sampel darah atau air liur diletakkan di lokasi di mana jenayah berlaku, sehingga mengakibatkan mereka yang tidak bersalah dihukum manakala mereka yang bersalah terlepas bebas.

Menurut Dan Frumkin, penyelidik yang menghasilkan DNA palsu menyatakan: 'Jika anda boleh memalsukan darah, air liur atau mana-mana tisu, anda boleh mencipta lokasi jenayah. Mana-mana pelajar jurusan biologi pun mampu melakukannya.

Dr. Frumkin -- yang mendakwa bahawa syarikatnya telah berjaya mencipta kit untuk membezakan sampel DNA sebenar dengan yang palsu – menggunakan dua teknik untuk memalsukan bukti.

Pada peringkat awal, mereka akan akan mengasingkan sampel minit bahan genetik dari helaian rambut dan menggandakannya beberapa kali.

Kemudian mereka akan memasukkan DNA ini ke dalam sel darah yang telah diasingkan dari segala klu genetik pemilik asal.

Kini sel darah ini mengandungi cap jari genetik milik individu pertama, demikian menurut laporan Journal Forensic Science International: Genetics.

Secara teori, ianya boleh diletakkan di tempat kejadian jenayah. Rambut, gula getah, puntung rokok, cawan dan gelas boleh membekalkan sampel awal DNA.

Syarikat ini juga telah membangunkan satu teknik yang rumit, yang mana bergantung kepada pengetahuan mengenai cap jari DNA - satu 'kod bar' genetik daripada 20 set kedudukan-kedudukan pada satu rantaian DNA seseorang individu.

Ahli sains ini telah membina 'perpustakaan' yang mengandungi ratusan cebisan DNA yang merangkumi semua kod genetik yang muncul di tempat-tempat yang telah diperiksa oleh polis. Untuk membuat padanan satu-satu cap jari, mereka hanya perlu mencari dari 'perpustakaan' untuk gabungan yang betul dan dicampurkan di dalam tabung uji.

Para pengkaji percaya, lambat laun teknologi ini bakal digunakan oleh penjenayah.

Mereka memberi amaran: 'Bukti DNA adalah kunci kepada sabitan atau pembebasan suspek daripada pelbagai bentuk jenayah, waima dari rogol hinggalah bunuh. Namun begitu, kita telah terlepas perhatian akan kemungkinan yang menggusarkan bahawa bukti DNA boleh dipalsukan.

'DNA dengan profil genetik yang diinginkan dengan mudah disintesis (baca: dihasilkan melalui makmal) dengan hanya menggunakan teknik biologikal biasa dan yang baru dibangunkan, diintegrasi ke dalam tisu manusia atau dibubuh pada permukaan-permukaan objek, dan kemudiannya diletakkan di tempat kejadian jenayah.'

Namun pakar British berpendapat adalah suatu yang hampir mustahil bagi mana-mana penjenayah untuk melakukan sesuatu seperti itu. Dr. Gill Tully dari Perkhidmatan Sains Forensik Kerajaan menyatakan:

'Anda memerlukan satu makmal biologi molekul yang lengkap, peralatan yang bernilai ribuan pound dan seorang ahli sains biologi molekul yang cekap atau juruteknik makmal.'

'Dan majoriti daripada mereka yang terlibat dengan jenayah tidak akan mempunyai akses kepada bahan-bahan ini.'

Dr. John Manlove, seorang ahli sains forensik dan saksi pakar di dalam kes-kes mahkamah, berkata: 'Ya, ianya satu kemungkinan dari segi sains, tetapi ia adalah untuk seseorang yang benar-benar terdesak.

'DNA adalah sangat penting di dalam sesuatu kes, tetapi penyiasatan tidak harus berasaskan kepada bukti DNA semata-mata.'

Diterjemahkan oleh Dr. Afif Bahardin dari artikel berjudul "DNA evidence can be fabricated and planted at crime scenes, scientists warn" tulisan Fiona Macrae yang diterbitkan di laman The Daily Mail UK pada 19 Ogos 2009.

Ulasan GB

Maka tidah hairan jika ada dikatakan DNA lain di dubur Saiful.

Keterangan-keterangan ahli forensik di dalam kes liwat Saiful yang berjalan kini hanya berdasarkan kepada ujian samada wujudnya DNA di bahan-bahan bukti yang dikemukakan.

Pengujian DNA tersebut lansung tidak menyentuh bila, bagaimana dan siapa yang telah meletakkan DNA itu di situ.

Justeru itu, penelitian yang hanya bersandarkan teori DNA untuk membuktikan wujudnya atau berlakunya sesuatu kesalahan jenayah tidak sebenarnya tepat dan tidak boleh diterima bulat-bulat.


Bermaruah Lagikah MCA, MIC & Gerakan Setelah Dikutuk Nazri?

Posted: 25 Mar 2011 08:01 AM PDT

PRU 13: Beranikah BN Perak tolak Nazri

Dewan Pemuda PAS Negeri Perak (DPPN Pk) tidak pelik melihat temubual khas Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz di dalam akhbar Nanyang Siang Pau yang menuntut agar MIC menyerahkan kesemua enam kerusi di negeri ini yang gagal dimenangi parti itu dalam Pilihan Raya Umum (PRU) ke-12 lalu walaupun Barisan Nasional negeri baru berkonvensyen.

Setiausahanya, Dr Raja ahmad Al-Hiss melihat kenyataan Nazri bukanlah asing kerana beliau bukan bercakap tanpa direstui oleh orang-orang tertentu.

DPPN Pk, katanya dapat melihat jelas apa yang dibincangkan oleh BN Perak di dalam konvensyen mereka tidak selari dan seolah-olah ada agenda tertentu Umno Perak dengan apa yang dinyatakan oleh Nazri.

Tambahnya, DPPN Pk yakin bahawa Pengerusi BN Perak akan menafikan perkara ini atau sebaliknya.

"Kenyataan tersebut juga sebagai bukti bahawa BN Perak masih bergolak di bawah kepimpinan Dr Zambry yang masih muda dan kurang pengalaman dalam memahami selok-belok politik negeri serta bekerjasama dengan parti-parti komponennya," ujarnya dalam kenyataan yang dikeluarkan di sini.

Menurutnya, BN Perak pada hakikatnya tidak bersatu dan penuh dengan masalah berdasarkan kenyataan Nazri sebagai pemimpin kanan negara dan negeri.

DPPN Pk juga, katanya meminta respons daripada kompenan BN Perak bagi menafikan kemelut yang ada atau beranikah BN Perak menolak Nazri bagi mempertahankan kerusi Parlimen Padang Rengas pada PRU 13 nanti.

"Sama-samalah kita tunggu cerita baru BN Perak yang semakin hari semakin kalut akibat lemahnya kepimpinan sedia ada," katanya lagi. -HD



Temubual Nazri Dengan Nanyang Siang Pau

MIC – tidak patut diberikan peluang bertanding lagi di Perak. Akibat kekalahan parti India itu di 6 kerusi DUN Perak, BN hilang kuasa di negeri berkenaan. Oleh itu katanya jika PM Najib mahukan Cuma calon yang berupaya menang, maka semua kerusi MIC Perak itu perlu diserah kembali pada Umno

MCA – menurut terjemahan akhbar berbahasa Inggeris: ".........aggrieved women and a wife who complains all day long that she was being abused but yet does not want to divorce her husband" (Seorang wanita yang bermasalah dans eorang isteri yang saban hari mengadu yang ia didera suaminya namun tidak mahu menuntut cerai).Dalam erti kata lain MCA terlalu celupar mulutnya mengkritik Umno dan BN, sepatutnya ia keluar sahaja dari BN!

Gerakan – hanya ada kekuatan di peringkat Pusat tetapi tiada kekuatan akar umbi. Maksudnya setelah tewas dalam PRU ke 12 khasnya di Pulau Pinang, Selangor dan Perak, Gerakan sudah pupus meninggalkan cuma pemimpinnya diperingkat Pusat.

Sebagai seorang menteri kanan dan ahli Majlis Tertinggi Umno sudah pastilah apa yang dibayangkan oleh Nazri itu mencerminkan isi perut dan sentimen jika tidak semua barangkali sebahagian pemimpin dan ahli-ahli Umno sendiri.

Ternyata Umno memandang rakan-rakannya terutama MCA, MIC dan Gerakan sebagai liabiliti besar buat BN pasac PRU ke 12. Sebelum ini pun sudah kedengaran yang kalangan Umno mahu mencadangkan satu strategi meletakkan Umno lebih dominan dalam menghadapi PRU ke 13 nanti lantaran tegarnya sokongan masyarakat bukan Melayu khasnya orang-orang Cina terhadap PR.

Maka berantakkanlah sesame BN, dengan MCA kononnya mahu mengadu keceluparan Nazri itu dalam mesyuarat tertinggi BN dalam waktu terdekat.

Sesungguhnya MCA perlu sedar bahawa luahan hati Nazri itu bukan pandangan peribadinya tetapi juga pandangan sebahagian besar orang-orang Umno. Umno melihat dirinya besar setelah memenangi beberapa pilihanraya kecil yang lalu. Keupayaannya bertahan dalam PRU ke 12 walaupun kalah sebahagian besar kerusi di Kedah, Selangor dan Pulau Pinang (kalah pun kerana kelemahan MCA, MIC dan Gerakan, bukan Umno) menunjukkan konon-kononnya ialah "big brother" yang boleh menyelamatkan BN.

MCA, MIC dan Gerakan cukup sekadar dilantik menjadi ahli dewan Negara apabila BN menang melalui kekuatan yang didominasi Umno nanti. -n32



MCA raps Nazri over remarks

KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA is upset with Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz's distasteful remarks of likening the party to an "aggrieved woman."

"The party will bring the matter up in the next Barisan Nasional supreme council meeting," said MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

"His comments were uncalled for. The MCA knows its position. We are part of Barisan.

"His remarks do not reflect the Barisan spirit.

"He should be more responsible with what he says," Liow told a press conference in Parliament lobby yesterday.

Also present were party vice-presidents Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen and Datuk Chor Chee Heung, secretary-general Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha and MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The MCA leaders were responding to a Nanyang Siang Pau report yesterday, quoting Nazri as comparing MCA's current situation to "a wife who complains all day long that she was being abused, raped and not given enough food, but yet does not want to divorce her husband."

Asked whether MCA would recommend Nazri for disciplinary action, Liow said the party would leave it to the Barisan supreme council to decide.

Dr Ng slammed Nazri's comments as "totally unacceptable," saying the party would back its president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek at all times.

Asked if MCA had spoken to the Prime Minister or his deputy on the matter, she said: "I have spoken to Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. He said it was Nazri's personal comments and not Barisan's or Umno's."

Chor said the party believed that Nazri's statement was not reflective of Umno's view.

"But if indeed it is, I think it is about time that MCA has an emergency meeting to discuss this issue thoroughly before the general election," he said, adding that the matter had left a "bad taste in the mouth."

When contacted, Nazri said: "What wrong have I done? This is a free country.

"If they are not happy, then whack-lah (blast me then). Just reply in the newspapers."

He reiterated that what he said was his personal opinion.

He said the question posed to him in the interview with the Chinese daily was about the claims by some MCA members that they lost in the last general election due to Umno's arrogance.

"So my reply was if their allegations were true, they should have left us.

"But the fact that they are still with us shows that it is not true," Nazri said, adding that he cited an example of a husband and wife to explain the situation.

"I never asked MCA to leave," he added.

In a statement, MCA vice-president Senator Gan Ping Sieu said Nazri's comments would alienate the Chinese voters.

"I am worried that the timing of such arrogant remarks will affect BN's chances in the Sarawak polls." -thestar

TAIB’S BIG BOOB AS HE LAUNCHES CYBER-WAR ATTEMPT!

Posted: 25 Mar 2011 06:28 AM PDT

Venturing onto the 'new media' –
but Taib falls at the first hurdle!

Taib finally waded into the 'cyber-war' this week – and ended up branding his son-in-law a liar!
The septuagenarian is notoriously shy of interviews and has avoided TV appearances for years, but he has been under pressure to answer our findings on Sarawak Report and recently the PM Najib Razak publicly warned that if BN wanted to win the election they mustfirst win the cyber-war!
The PM, who is a full generation younger than Taib, further upped the pressure during his visit to Sarawak at the weekend by meeting his 'young facebook friends' from Kuching.  So, yesterday Taib ventured forth – with a series of staged 'on-line interviews', which were then launched across numerous BN-controlled websites.

The interview, conducted with the Chief Minister across a large plate of exotic fruits from which he appeared to have been eating, was divided up into sections and broadcast across the internet sites under separate titles such as "I do not know the Browns" and "Sarawak looks after its Forests".
But it is the one that is entitled "Jamilah's Business in Canada is Successful, Because She is Good" that has caused the most immediate embarrassment.  This is because his remarks flatly contradict the claims that are being made in London by his son-in-law, Hisham (Sean) Murray, and have effectively shown his daughter's husband up as a liar!
They should have coordinated their stories!
"Successful" couple – (Sean) Hisham Murray Abdullah and wife Jamilah.
Sean Murray, who joined the Taib family businesses after he married Taib's daughter Jamilah, is now involved in numerous Taib property ventures across the world.
Several members of Sean's family have also found gainful employment in Sakto, Sakti and Ridgeford, which are the companies started by Taib in the UK and North America.  However, Murray has sought to publicly deny any business connection with Taib.
His cousin, Christopher Murray, who manages Ridgeford Properties in London, told a journalist last year that Sakto (the first company in the group, set up by the Taibs in Canada) was in fact begun by his father and Sean's father, who were twin brothers.
Subsequently, the Murrays have hired one of the UK's top lawyers to make a statement to newspapers in which they declared:
"Sakto, Sakti and Ridgeford are not and have never been funded by Mr Taib Mahmud….Should this allegation be made, our clients will sue you without further notice". [Statement via Mishcon de Reya]
Too bad then that Taib admitted he HAD started up Sakto by giving his own money to Jamilah in the online video!  This is what he said:
"It started 20 to 30 years ago.  I gave money to my daughter because I was resigning from Federal Government.  I got a gratuity and gave some money to her to start a new business, it thrived… It is a property development company… It got successful and from successful they go to do business in London". [Taib 22/03/2011http://realsarawak.blogspot.com]
Maybe Sean should sue Taib?
So who is telling the Truth?
Taib Mahmud's story is far from convincing, in terms of where he got the cash to invest in Jamilah's enterprise.  He claims that a gratuity from resigning from his Federal job was what helped him set up Jamilah in busines in 1983. Our researches have shown that Sakto was proclaiming in its early website promotions that in that first year alone the company invested in 700 property units. Meanwhile, the firm's Financial Report for 1983 shows that Sakto already had over CAN$7 million (RM22 million) in assets, $4.5 million (RM14 million) of which was raised from its shareholders ie Taib Mahmud.  What kind of 'gratuity' is that for a retiring Federal Minister?!
Sakto's 1983 Financial Records show that CAN$ 4.5 million was injected by the shareholder (Taib) in that first year.
On the other hand, while Taib was a young Federal Minister he was already known to be one of Malaysia's richest politicians.  This was not from any gratuities, it was because his uncle Tun Rahman Yakub, had already passed him his first lucrative timber concessions, chopping down the forests of Sarawak!
However, Sarawak Report agrees that all the available evidence in Canada's public records back up Taib's admission that he was the person who funded the launching of Sakto and that it started as a Taib family business with nothing to do with the Murrays or their Dads!
The Murray claims just simply are not true
The Murrays have elaborated on their claims that Taib has nothing to do with any of the companies they work in with further statements in their legal document:
"No. Mr Taib Mahmud has no business interest in Sakto, Sakti and Ridgeford. Mr Taib Mahmud is not, and has never been, a director of any of our corporate clients. He is not a shareholder of any of our corporate clients. Nor does he exercise any control over the companies, either directly or indirectly".
Not only are all these statements contradicted by Taib himself, we have (thanks to the late Ross Boyert) seen and taken copies of all the documents relating to the setting up of Sakti International in California – and these definitively prove that Abdul Taib Mahmud was an original Director of the Company and that he was the 50% shareholder too! (see below)
There in the records - Taib was a founder-shareholder in SAKTI in 1987
There in the records too - a private agreement with his kids and brothers meant that Taib was the 50% majority shareholder of SAKTI
Taib applies Quantity not Quality principle to the 'Cyber-war' !
Sarawak Report have it on good authority that the chap behind Taib's unfortunate blunder is the hyper-active master-mind of his cyber-war campaign, PBB's Information Youth Chief, Abdul Aziz bin Tan Sri Adenan Satem.  Abdul Aziz is the son of Adenan Satem, Taib's PBB Information Chief – once married to his sister Zainab, as ever keeping matters firmly in the family!
Cyber-war 'mastermind'. Taib's nephew and PBB Youth Information Chief Abdul Aziz Adenan Satem!
As fellow bloggers we would like to congratulate young Satem on working extremely hard on the virtually impossible job of promoting the aging 'White Hair' as an on-line attraction.  But he probably should not have tried.  Taib's reluctance to expose himself was probably the wiser instinct as this immediate boob has born out.
However, Abdul Aziz's campaign has been relentless, and of course extremely well-funded.  Over the past months onlookers have watched with amusement at an explosion of virtually identical sites about Sarawak, all of them promoting Taib and BN.
Web experts have detected tell-tale finger-prints, which clearly link the sites, such as using the same route each time to disguise their provenance – they are all registered through the US.  Some of the sites have been recently set up in the past few days, like SarawakReport(s).org, while others are more established, but have been clearly bought over to the BN format.  Abdul Aziz watchers have now detected at least 30 of such sites and the numbers are growing by the day !
All Satem's sites have two basic forms of content.  One is to present soviet-style propaganda items about Taib promoting more 'development' in Sarawak, the other is to attack the authors of Sarawak Report (while flattering them at the same time through their desperate attempts at immitation).  Needless to say, these sites are extremely boring and do not attract visitors. If you google search Sarawakreports.org, it is the far more popularwww.sarawakreport.org that comes up!
However, there is clearly a determined strategy at work behind the warehouse approach to the BN cyber-war, which is now beginning to unfold.  Today one of the Abdul Aziz sites (Sarawak Bersatu) opened its comments with this innocent-sounding observation:
"When this website first began questioning the actions of Clare Rewcastle Brown and her Sarawak Report, it felt like we were a voice in the wilderness. Now, wherever you turn on the internet there appears to be more and more people questioning her opinions and motivations"!
Churning it out - Aziz and his team at work!
Indeed!  And the author, Abdul Aziz knows exactly why there are so many such sites!
However, if he went to journalism school he would be taught that producing mere comment is the lazy alternative to properly researched original stories and the genuine production of information.  Readers have clearly been left wondering why they should waste their time on what is merely biased opinion, because while the one and only Sarawak Report is currently scoring 50 thousand daily hits and rising, we note that one of Abdul Aziz's mass produced efforts has so far achieved just 8 hits (ever).



Siapa Lagi Yang Seiras Dengan Wajah Anda?

Posted: 25 Mar 2011 06:57 AM PDT

Bagi umat Islam, mereka percaya, setiap individu di muka bumi ini turut memiliki enam lagi individu lain yang memiliki wajah seiras sekaligus menjadikan tujuh orang yang memiliki wajah seiras.

Bagi yang dilahirkan kembar seiras pula, masih terdapat lima individu lain yang seiras dengannya dan begitulah seterusnya bagi yang dilahirkan sebagai kembar tiga, empat atau seterusnya.

Logiknya, berbanding individu yang tidak popular, wajah mirip individu popolar lebih mudah untuk ditemui dan dicamkan.

Alasan logiknya ialah gambar individu-individu terkenal ini kita boleh lihat secara kerap dan di merata-rata tempat.

Ianya bukan suatu yang mustahil malahan boleh dianggap bukan terlalu rumit untuk menemui insan lain yang memiliki wajah seiras anda lebih-lebih lagi jika usaha yang dijalankan itu dibuat secara intensif dengan melibatkan sebuah pasukan mencari yang cekap dan diselaraskan dengan baik di seluruh negara.

Malahan ketika regim Saddam Hussein hampir tumbang di tangan tentera bersekutu beberapa tahun lalu, diberitakan pihak perisikan rahsia Saddam memiliki beberapa klon bekas presiden itu yang bertujuan untuk mengelirukan pihak musuh di saat-saat kecemasan.

Juga diberitakan 'klon-klon' tersebut telah dilatih dalam masa yang amat panjang dari semua aspek termasuk gaya percakapan, berjalan, duduk dan sebagainya untuk menjadi 'Saddam Hussein' dalam waktu memerlukan.

Menerusi perbualan dengan seorang rakan tidak berapa lama dahulu pula, katanya setiap presiden Amerika Syarikat turut mempunyai klon yang dilatih oleh Perkhidmatan

Rahsia mereka yang dijaga dengan baik untuk digunakan saat-saat kecemasan besar.

Bagaimanapun tidaklah dapat saya pastikan sejauh mana kebenaran kedua-dua cerita ini samada hanya rekaan semata-mata ataupun memang benar-benar berlaku.

Terutama sekali cerita yang disampaikan oleh rakan saya tadi yang saya amat pasti bukan sahaja tidak pernah berkhidmat di White House, malahan sepanjang pengetahuan saya, beliau belum pernah menjejakkan kakinya ke AS sekalipun.

Terjumpa 'selebriti terkenal'

Anda sendiri tentu pernah mengalami pengalaman terjumpa seseorang yang pada awalnya bermati-matian disangkakan seorang selebriti terkenal samada artis mahupun 'public figure' dalam lapangan lain.

Isteri saya sendiri pernah mengalami peristiwa yang melucukan sekitar hujung 90an ketika beliau masih di zaman bujangnya.

Peristiwa lucu tersebut berlaku ketika beliau dan beberapa rakan-rakan sekerjanya sedang asyik menjamu selera di Pertama Kompleks, Kuala Lumpur.

Tanpa disedari beliau, ketika itu beliau sedang menjadi tumpuan beberapa gadis yang juga sedang menjamu selera di tempat yang sama.

Apabila isteri saya menyedari beberapa mata sedang memerhatikannya, keadaan tersebut menyebabkan rasa kurang selesa dihatinya dek bimbangkan kalau ada sesuatu yang tidak kena yang mungkin boleh menyebabkan keadaan memalukan dirinya.

Bagaimanapun untuk menteteramkan dirinya, isteri saya sempat juga melemparkan senyuman kepada gadis-gadis yang tidak dikenalinya itu yang jaraknya hanya selang satu meja sahaja dari meja beliau dan rakan-rakannya.

Selesai sahaja gadis-gadis tersebut menghabiskan hidangan tengahari mereka, dengan tidak semena-mena mereka menghampiri meja isteri saya dan perasaan isteri saya sedikit cemas ketika itu.

Tiba-tiba salah seorang gadis tersebut menyapa isteriku dengan berkata, "Akak ni Kak Maya kan?," sambil tersenyum simpul.

Rupa-rupanya gadis-gadis selang semeja itu menyangkakan isteri saya adalah penyanyi dan pelakon terkenal yang bernama Maya.

Apabila isteri saya menjelaskan bahawa dia bukanlah Maya si artis tersebut, muka mereka bertukar menjadi merah padam akibat perasaan malu dan dengan rasa bersalah mereka meminta maaf kepada isteri saya.

Kini sekarang isteri saya yang telah melahirkan empat cahaya mata kami dan umur yang juga telah meningkat persamaan tersebut tidaklah ketara lagi, namun tetap menawan, baik di mata mahupun di hati saya dan itu sudah memadai buat saya.

"Emak, Hamid Gurkha datang, mak!"

Pengalaman bapa mertua saya yang bertugas sebagai pembaca jangka elektrik seperti yang diceritakan kepada isteri saya yang ketika itu masih di alam remaja juga menarik untuk saya kongsi bersama.

Ketika sesampai sahaja beliau di sebuah rumah untuk mengambil bacaan jangka elektrik di kediaman terbabit, secara tiba-tiba anak tuan rumah yang mungkin sedang bersekolah rendah dengan tiba-tiba melauang kepada ibunya yang berada di dalam rumah.

"Emak…! Hamid Gurkha datang, mak…!!!," laung kanak-kanak tersebut dengan perasaan sedikit teruja apabila melihatkan 'pelawak terkenal Hamid Gurkha' berada di halaman rumahnya dan bapa mertua saya pula tidak mampu berkata apa-apa melainkan hanya mampu tersenyum.

Jumpa 'Anwar' pekena teh tarik di warung

Tidak kurang menarik, pengalaman saya sendiri yang kalau tidak silap saya ketika itu kes liwat 1 sedang meletup di dada-dada akhbar bahkan kejadian tersebut turut melibatkan wajah yang seiras dengan individu yang terlibat dalam kes liwat 1, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Sedang saya leka menghirup teh tarik di sebuah warung sekitar Jalan Ipoh pada suatu petang, mata saya lekas tertumpu pada susuk seorang lelaki yang wajahnya memang saling tidak tumpah dengan Anwar Ibrahim.

Malah saya berani katakan, wajah lelaki tersebut mempunyai 80-90 peratus iras wajah Anwar ketika itu tetapi saya tidaklah bertindak menyapa lelaki itu kerana agak pasti bahawa lelaki itu bukanlah Anwar.

Antara sebab utama yang menyebabkan saya yakin lelaki itu bukanlah Anwar, isu liwat pada masa itu cukup panas dan Anwar sendiri juga pada bila-bila masa akan ditahan polis sekaligus tidak memungkinkan untuk beliau 'berkeliaran' dan minum seorang diri di warung tersebut.

Lebih-lebih lagi ketika lelaki itu mahu beredar, saya melihat lelaki itu menyarungkan topi keledarnya dan memandu motorsikal kapcai sekaligus mengesahkan lelaki itu bukanlah Anwar.

Pada masa yang sama juga ketika itu diberitakan Anwar sedang menjelajah ke beberapa tempat dalam negara untuk membersihkan namanya yang dakwanya telah dicemari fitnah liwat.

Selain lelaki yang aku temui di warung tersebut, indentiti terkenal lain yang dilihat mempunyai iras Anwar ialah ahli perniagaan, Datuk Eskay dan juga bekas Presiden Gabungan Pelajar Melayu Semenanjung, Datuk Suhaimi Ibrahim.

Persamaan Suhaimi dengan wajah Anwar lebih ketara ketika Anwar dalam lingkungan umur 40-50an dan Eskay pula mempunyai perbezaan di rambutnya apabila memiliki 'jambul ala Superman' dan potongan rambut yang lebih panjang berbanding Anwar.

Bagaimanapun, wajah kedua-dua mereka tidak mampu menandingi persamaan yang dimiliki lelaki yang saya temui di gerai yang saya ceritakan tadi.

Selain itu, walaupun tidak mempunyai wajah tidak berapa seiras Anwar, beberapa individu terkenal lain turut mempunyai gaya pidato yang hampir menyerupai Anwar.

Individu seperti ini bolehlah diangap sebagai pengkagum Anwar hingga terbawa-bawa gaya pembawaan Anwar secara tidak disedari atau sebaliknya.

Antara beberapa individu terkenal yang memiliki gaya pidato mirip seperti Anwar ialah bekas Ketua Pemuda Keadilan, Ezam Mohd Noor dan orang kuat PKR, Mustafa Kamil Ayub.

Lumrah bagi insan seperti Anwar yang sering dijadikan ikon oleh pengkagum-pengkagum beliau dan cuba mempraktikkan beberapa gaya yang boleh dianggap sinonim dengan individu yang dikaguminya itu.

Anda bagaimana? Tentunya anda juga pernah mengalami sekurang-kurangnya salah satu dari situasi di atas tadi atau mungkin anda pernah menerima komen dari rakan-rakan yang mengatakan wajah anda seiras dengan seseorang selebriti terkenal.

Atau, bagi kategori 'mainan perasaan sendiri', mungkin secara diam-diam anda sendiri yang mengaku wajah anda seiras Hans Issac, Anuar Zain ataupun Tom Cruise?

Jika anda seorang wanita pula, mungkin ada pernah terlintas di fikiran bahawa wajah anda mirip kepada Nasha Aziz, Lisa Surihani mahupun Ziana Zain tetapi awas jangan kongsikan apa yang anda fikirkan ini dengan rakan-rakan sepejabat anda! -FMT


‘Did you put words into Teoh’s mouth?’

Posted: 25 Mar 2011 05:41 AM PDT

KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer was today grilled on whether he had put words into Teoh Beng Hock's mouth and on the process of questioning witnessess.
The enforcement officer Mohd Nazri Ibrahim was testifying before the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into Teoh's death.
Nazri had recorded Teoh's statement prior to the DAP politicial aide's death in July 2009.
Commission chairman James Foong asked Nazri what was the meaning of the phrase "recording statement" and concluded that although it was a "nice word", it however still meant that the witness was interrogated.

Foong: Interrogation or recording statement, what is the style? (Is it) I am just a clerk (taking down the answers) or are you asking questions as an interrogator?
Nazri: I just ask, it is more or less like an interrogation.
Foong: Is that the normal way? (When the phrase) "record statement" is used in MACC, it is interrogation, not that you (witness) say whatever you like and I just record.
Nazri: Usually it is like that.
The MACC officer also revealed that Teoh did not have a choice when it came to recording his statement.
Foong asked Nazri if he had given Teoh the choice of returning to the MACC office on another day if he felt tired.
Nazri said that he needed to consult his superiors if Teoh's statement "would not be taken or if it was delayed".
Foong: Under what section did you take his statement?
Nazri: Section 30
Foong then refered to Section 30(10) of the MACC Act which stated that it was an offence for a witness not to give a statement.
"It is not voluntary. Recording statement (is a) very nice word but it is interrogation," he said.
When questioned by conducting officer Awang Amardajaya Awang Mahmud if Nazri had informed Teoh of the consequences should he refuse to answer the questions, Nazri said Teoh was not informed of this.
Prodding further to find out if Teoh could have left the MACC office without giving his statement, Awang asked if Nazri had ever mentioned to Teoh that he could go home.
Awang: Did you say, if you are tired today we can continue this tomorrow?
Nazri: I told him that if you don't feel like recording now, you can rest.
Awang: But he could not go home?
Nazri: (Yes) Could not go home.
Awang: Did you tell him the statement had to be completed that day?
Nazri: No I didn't inform him.
Nazri also revealed that Teoh's statement had to be re-worded by him (Nazri) because Teoh's answers were too short.
At this juncture, commissioner T Selventhiranathan asked if Nazri had "put words into Teoh's mouth".
Selventhiranathan: The passage didn't come out of his mouth?
Nazri: Yes.
Selventhiranathan: The words were put in his mouth?
Nazri: But he agreed (as I was typing)
Selventhiranathan: Yes, but you agree you were putting words in his mouth?
Nazri: Yes
The MACC officer clarified that he would ask Teoh questions, listen to the answers and then type out the statement in his own words after he had understood what the witness meant and Teoh would double check soon after.
Nazri: In the statement, it is not 100% of what Teoh said. It had to be added. The sentences that were hanging, I would complete them
Awang: So if one sentence in his statement contained six facts, there would be a lot more questions than that six?
Nazri: Yes, maybe more
Nazri was also asked why Teoh's statement was not recorded in a question-and-answer format but rather in a narrative form, to which the MACC officer replied that it was the standard practice.
Later, Foong said: "It is just not a voluntary statement as we understand it to be. Though it looks straight forward, some of the words typed are not Teoh's words; they could be words put in by him (Nazri)."
Asked about Teoh's demeanour during this period, Nazri repeatedly said that the witness sighed frequently, appeared sullen and was very reserved.
The inquiry resumes on Monday.
Teoh was found dead the morning after his overnight interrogation by MACC officers at their office in Shah Alam.
He was the political aide to Ean Yong Hian Wah, the Selangor state executive councillor whom MACC was investigating for alleged misappropriation of funds.
His body was found on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam, the same building that housed the MACC office on the 14th floor.

Eskay Minta Saya Dapatkan ‘UTK’, Kata Bekas Pengawal Peribadi Megat Junid

Posted: 25 Mar 2011 02:39 AM PDT

Dari The Malaysian Insider

Seorang bekas anggota polis hari ini mendakwa Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah telah mendampinginya minggu lalu untuk mendapatkan beberapa bekas anggota unit tindakan khas (UTK) khusus untuk sesi tayangan rakaman video seks Isnin lalu, yang pendedahannya mendakwa melibatkan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Rakaman itu menunjukkan seorang lelaki mengadakan hubungan seks dengan seorang wanita, dipercayai pelacur asing.

Mohamad Mahti Abdul Rahim, yang pernah berkhidmat sebagai pengawal peribadi Allahyarham Tan Sri Megat Junid Megat Ayub berkata, dia bertemu dengan ahli perniagaan itu minggu lalu.

"Beliau bertanya saya sama ada boleh membantu mendapatkan dua bekas anggota UTK. Apabila beliau berkata ia untuk menyerang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, saya memberitahu beliau saya tidak mahu tahu apa-apa langsung," katanya.

Mohamad Mahti, yang pernah bekerja untuk bekas menteri itu selama 18 tahun menambah, dia tidak mahu terlibat dalam apa-apa masalah meskipun mengenali Shazryl (kiri) sejak 1980-an.

"Tetapi sekarang, dengan adanya semua dakwaan, saya merasakan saya perlu mendedahkan kebenaran. Datuk Eskay adalah Si Kitol," katanya.

Mohamad Mahti berkata Shazryl mengenali Anwar sejak Ketua Umum Pakatan Rakyat itu menjadi menteri kerajaan pusat pada 1990-an.

Katanya, Shazryl kemungkinan marah selepas Ketua Pembangkang itu tidak mahu memberikan keterangan dalam kes saman berkaitan komisen RM20 juta berkaitan pemerolehan projek jambatan bengkok menghubungkan Johor dan Singapura.

"Sama ada pita (rakaman) ini betul atau tidak, saya tidak tahu tetapi ia satu tindakan tidak bermoral," katanya lagi.

Mohamad Mahti berkata dia pertama kali bertemu dengan Shazryl ketika beliau berkhidmat sebagai pakar fisioterapi Persatuan Badminton Malaysia tahun 1990-an.

"Datuk Megat pernah mengalami masalah otot dan Shazryl disyorkan kepada saya, jadi saya perkenalkan kepada Datuk Megat," kata beliau.

"Tetapi apabila Datuk Megat berhadapan dengan barah dan malah ketika beliau meninggal dunia, Eskay tidak pernah melawat beliau langsung," katanya.

Kini katanya, Shazryl mengusahakan lima kilang baja di Thailand dan rapat dengan (Tan Sri) Abdul Rahim (Thamby Chik) sebab beliau merupakan Pengerusi RISDA manakala Shuib pula bapa mertua Menteri Luar Bandar dan Pembangunan Wilayah Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal.

Shafie juga merupakan naib presiden Umno.

"Beliau juga cuba rapat dengan Pengerusi Felcra Datuk Tajuddin Rahman agar dapat kontrak jual baja," katanya lagi.

"Eskay adalah pembohong. Apa saja dia kata adalah pembohongan," kata beliau kepada pemberita di ladang kambingnya di Kuang dekat sini hari ini.

"Saya akan membantu jika polis atau Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia mahu menyoal siasat. Jika Eskay mahu menyaman saya, silakan. Saya tidak bimbang," katanya lagi.

Shazryl adalah salah seorang daripada tiga "Datu T".

Kelmarin, Shazryl, seorang ahli perniagaan, mengaku bahawa beliaulah yang menunjukkan video itu kepada media terpilih di Carcosa Seri Negara Isnin lalu. -TMI

Ulasan GB

Seperti yang GB katakan sebelum ini, kebenaran akan terus terbongkar. Kerja-kerja jahat tiga malaon tersebut bakal terdedah sehingga ke akar umbi.

Rupa-rupanya Si Kitol yang bernama Eskay itu adalah bekas konsul besar Thailand di Malaysia dan ada lima kilang baja di Thailand dan tidak hairan jika sebelum ini pernah dilaporkan bahawa perempuan yang muncul di dalam video tape itu adalah seorang warga Thailand!

Kini, yang mendedahkan kisah ini ialah seorang bekas anggota polis Mohamad Mahti Abdul Rahim dan beliau dengan TEGAS menyatakan:

"Saya akan membantu jika polis atau Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia mahu menyoal siasat. Jika Eskay mahu menyaman saya, silakan. Saya tidak bimbang,"

Orang yang benar sentiasa diberikan Allah keberanian untuk menegakkan kebenaran!

Gempa Kuat Gegar Myanmar, 50 Maut

Posted: 25 Mar 2011 03:30 AM PDT

Gempa kuat menggegar kawasan Mynmar semalam berhampiran dengan Thailand. Akibat bencana itu sekurang-kurangnya 50 orang dinyatakan terkorban, demikian menurut pejabat Myanmar hari ini.

Gegaran gempa juga dirasakan sehingga ke Bangkok, hampir 800 kilometer dari titik pusat gempa, juga di Hanoi dan sebahagian Cina. Badan Pemetaan Geologi AS (USGS) mengukur kekuatan gempa pada 6.8 SR.

"Jumlah mangsa korban akibat gempa bakal melebihi 50 orang bila kota Tarlay dan Mine Lin turut dihitung," ujar pejabat Myanmar.

"Jalan-jalan juga ditutup. Menurut maklumat yang diperolehi, lebih dari 130 bangunan runtuh kerana gempa berkenaan."

Sementara itu, sebuah rumah sakit di Mae Sai, kota terbesar di Thailand yang dekat dengan pusat gempa, menyatakan belum menerima mangsa lagi sejak semalam. Bekalan elektrik terputus untuk beberapa ketika.

Polis Mae Sai menyatakan, seorang wanita terkorban tertimpa dinding rumahnya yang runtuh.



Di Cina, penduduk desa sekitar 40 kilometer bersempadan Myanmar di wilayah barat daya Yunnan menyatakan bangunan bergoyang selama lebih dari satu minit ketika gempa, pejabat berita rasmi Xinhua melaporkan.

Lebih dari 350 siswa dan guru dipindahkan dari sebuah sekolah di Menghai County, Yunnan, setelah bangunan mengalami retak-retak, kata Xinhua.

Penduduk di kota Nanning Cina Selatan, hampir 900 km dari pusat gempa, bertempiaran keluar dari rumahnya ketika mereka merasa gegaran, kata Xinhua. Tidak ada korban dilaporkan di Cina.

Di Hanoi tengah - di Vietnam, jauh dari pusat gempa - gempa dirasakan sebagai gerakan goyang halus yang berlangsung selama beberapa detik. Beberapa warga Hanoi meninggalkan rumah mereka dalam keadaan panik, namun tidak ada laporan kerosakan.

Gempa terjadi dua minggu setelah Jepun digoncang gempa rakasa, yang melepaskan bencana tsunami yang mengorbankan sekitar 27 ribu orang dan menyebabkan krisis nuklear di Fukushima.

'Pelakon utama' bukan Anwar – Johari

KUALA LUMPUR 23 Mac – Misteri video seks didedahkan Datuk 'T' kelmarin memasuki episod baru apabila Ahli Parlimen Sungai Petani, Datuk Johari Abdul dari Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) mendakwa telah melihat video itu dan menafikan 'pelakon utamanya' sebagai Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Menurutnya, video itu dipertontonkan kepadanya di bilik Hotel Flamingo, Ampang oleh Tan Sri Rahim Thamby Chik dan ahli perniagaan, Datuk Eskay Shazril Abdullah petang kelmarin setelah dibawa ke sana oleh bapa saudaranya.

"Datuk Eskay memberitahu beliau selalu membawa Anwar ke Thailand dan club house tempat kejadian itu berlaku. Menurutnya setiap kali dia membawa Anwar ke tempat itu, bilik itulah yang akan digunakan Anwar dan dia akan menggunakan bilik bersebelahan.

"Sepanjang tayangan itu, Rahim kerap mencelah memburukkan Anwar. Selepas habis tayangan, Rahim memujuk saya meninggalkan PKR dan berjanji membawa saya berjumpa Perdana Menteri," katanya.

selain menguruskan segala keperluan kewangan dan keselamatan. Beliau turut minta saya bawa Ahli Parlimen pembangkang lain untuk tengok video itu," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang akhbar di lobi Parlimen di sini hari ini yang turut dihadiri hampir 30 ahli Parlimen pembangkang termasuk dua Naib Presiden Pas, Datuk Mahfuz Omar dan Salahuddin Ayub serta Setiausaha Agung PKR, Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.

Menurutnya, beliau mengecam lelaki dalam video berkenaan bukan Anwar berdasarkan beberapa perkara terutamanya keadaan fizikal yang berbeza.

"Memang imbasan lelaki itu nampak macam Anwar tetapi apabila dia bangun untuk menyarung seluar dalam, perutnya kelihatan buncit dan terlalu besar dibandingkan dengan Anwar. Punggungnya juga lebih berisi selain bahu si pelaku terlalu tegap dan lebar berbanding Anwar.

"Warna kulitnya juga cerah berbanding Anwar. Selain itu tempoh rakaman muka pelaku yang terlalu pendek dan hitam putih menyebabkan kesukaran untuk mengesahkan identiti pelaku.

"Disebabkan itu, sebaik keluar dari bilik tersebut saya katakan pada bapa saudara 'Demi Allah, itu bukan Anwar'," ujarnya.

Tidak terhenti di situ, Johari berkata, beliau turut mengatur pertemuan lima Ahli Parlimen PKR iaitu Datuk Kamarul Baharin Abbas (Teluk Kemang), Datuk Rashid Din (Merbok), Azan Ismail (Indera Mahkota), Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid (Kuala Langat) dan Amran Abdul Ghani (Tanah Merah).

"Kami berjanji untuk bertemu di Hotel Flamingo pada pukul 3.30 petang semalam. Setelah bertemu bapa saudara saya di sana, beliau mengatakan Tan Sri Rahim dalam perjalanan.

"Dua jam kami menunggu tetapi tiada siapa yang hadir. Disebabkan itu kami menganggap ini adalah konspirasi terancang," katanya.

Sementara itu, Saifuddin berkata, perkara itu bukan sesuatu yang meragukan kerana tempahan dan bayaran bilik Carcosa Seri Negara, tempat video itu ditayangkan kepada media dibuat Timbalan Ketua UMNO Bukit Gantang, Kamarulail Sulaiman yang juga pegawai khas Rahim.Utusan

Turning pig waste to energy: Pig farm in Sitiawan first in country to go green

Turning pig waste to energy

By IVAN LOH
ivanloh@thestar.com.my

SITIAWAN: A pig farm near here is set to become the first in the country to generate renewable energy from animal waste.
Dindings Farms Sdn Bhd farm manager Dr Ch'ng Chee Keong said they are currently building a biogas conversion plant to convert methane gas from waste into electricity.
"Once operational, the plant can generate up to 500kW of electricity," he told reporters after a visit by Perak executive councillor Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon and state Veterinary Services director Dr Quaza Nizamuddin Hassam Nizam to the farm at Segari yesterday.
"The electricity generated will be sufficient to power up the farm, making us the first 'green' hog farm," said Dr Ch'ng.
Power generators: Dr Mah (left) being briefed by Dr Ch'ng during his visit to the pig farm in Segari, Seri Manjung, yesterday.
The plant, which cost about RM4mil, is expected to begin operation in November.
Dr Ch'ng said the farm could save up to RM35,000 every month once the plant becomes operational.
"We hope the state government could provide us with some incentives to continue running our farm," he added.
Dr Ch'ng said they have switched to modern pig farming as it was more hygienic and environment-friendly.
Dr Mah said Dindings Farms was one of 17 pig farms in Perak that have adopted modern farming techniques.
He said there were a total of 131 pig farms in the state, with the others still having some issues with matters pertaining to land usage and land conversion.
Dr Mah also urged other pig farms to follow in the footstep of Dindings Farms in using the biogas converter system.
