18 Pelatih Polis Di PD Diserang Virus Adeno

Posted: 04 Apr 2011 08:24 AM PDT

Pusat Latihan Asas Tentera Darat (Pusasda) di sini diletakkan dalam keadaan berjaga-jaga selepas 18 pelatih dari Polis Diraja Malaysia diserang virus Adeno dan Influenza A (H1N1) sejak 30 Mac lepas.

Menteri Pertahanan Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi berkata semua pelatih polis dan perajurit muda di pusat itu dibekalkan penutup hidung, ubat antiseptik dan peraturan baru yang menghalang hubungan terus dengan orang dari luar untuk mengurangkan risiko jangkitan.

"Kita bagaimanapun masih membolehkan keluarga melawat mereka tetapi di bawah pemerhatian ketat pegawai yang bertanggungjawab," katanya ketika melawat Pusasda dengan diiriingi pegawai tentera, polis dan perubatan daerah di sini, Isnin.

Ahmad Zahid berkata bahawa daripada 18 pelatih polis itu, empat disahkan positif mempunyai kuman Aidino dan empat lagi H1N1.

"Latihan untuk pelatih polis yang berada Pusasda ditangguhkan buat sementara waktu tetapi latihan akan diteruskan seperti biasa untuk perajurit muda," katanya.

Ahmad Zahid berkata bahawa pada masa ini, tidak ada perajurit muda atau rekrut tentera yang diserang dengan virus itu kecuali lima orang yang diletakkan dalam status pemerhatian disebabkan suhu badan mereka tinggi.

Pusat itu mempunyai 1,000 pelatih polis manakala tentera pula mempunyai 2,138 perajurit muda.

PDRM menempatkan pelatih mereka di Pusasda sejak awal tahun ini sebagai sebahagian daripada program latihan "Blue Ocean Strategy" yang dibuat bersama dengan pihak tentera.

Wartawan yang dibawa melawat pusat itu hari ini melihat latihan tentera untuk perajurit muda seperti kawad diteruskan seperti biasa dan mereka diwajibkan memakai topeng khas.

Tali kuning dari PDRM digunakan sebagai sempadan kuarantin untuk blok-blok yang diduduki pelatih polis bagi mengelak mereka daripada keluar manakala pergerakan mereka dikawal ketat oleh pegawai polis dan kakitangan Jabatan Kesihatan. -BERNAMA

Kadi Kluang Perjelaskan Isu Samak Kluang Rail Coffee

Posted: 04 Apr 2011 09:43 AM PDT

Kluang - Pejabat Agama Daerah Kluang mengadakan pertemuan bersama-sama 11 pertubuhan bukan kerajaan (NGO) di sekitar daerah Kluang bagi menjelaskan isu samak yang dilakukan oleh Jabatan Agama Johor (JAJ) ke atas kedai kopi Kluang Rail Coffee pada 31 Mac lalu.

Kadi daerah Kluang, Mohd Khalil Md Noor berkata, pertemuan yang diadakan semalam bertujuan merapatkan hubungan dan membincangkan beberapa isu terutama berhubung isu serbuk kopi yang disahkan oleh JAJ mengandungi gelatin babi.

"Isu ini diperjelas ekoran kemungkinan kebanyakan mereka sebelum ini keliru dan tidak jelas mengenai bidang kuasa JAJ dalam bab halal ini.

"Oleh kerana kekeliruan yang berlaku, mereka sudah menganggap JAJ mempunyai bidang kuasa yang terlalu luas dalam menangani isu ini (isu Kluang Rail Coffee) sdangkan JAJ hanya ada kuasa yang tertentu sahaja," katanya kepada Sinar Harian.

Mohd Khalil berkata, bukan itu sahaja malah, mereka juga keliru mengenai proses samak yang dijalankan oleh Bahagian Penyelidikan JAJ ke atas kedai berkenaan.

"Alhamdulillah, dengan pertemuan yang diadakan ini saya dapat jelaskan kepada mereka mengenai kewajaran samak ini dalam permulaan proses permohonan sijil halal.

"Saya jelaskan, proses samak ini bukanlah bermakna terus mendapat sijil halal tetapi perlu menjalani beberapa proses lagi sebelum berjaya mendapatkan sijil halal. Jadi, mana-mana pihak tidak boleh mendakwa sudah mendapat sijil halal selagi belum menerima sijil halal yang sah," katanya.

Mohd Khalil juga berkata, dengan pertemuan yang diadakan ini ianya secara tidak langsung dapat menjawab berhubung mengetahui semua perkara tanpa mahu berselindung lagi.

Beliau berkata, pertemuan harus dibuat setelah NGO tersebut membuat laporan polis kelmarin berhubung isu yang berlaku ini sehingga membabitkan JAJ dalam menangani masalah ini.

"Oleh itu, saya tampil menjemput mereka dan dalam pertemuan ini, saya beri peluang kepada semua untuk meluahkan dan bertanyakan soalan. Alhamdulillah, pertemuan ini berjaya membuahkan hasil dan berjaya memberikan penjelasan terhadap isu Kluang Rail Coffee ini," katanya. -SH

The K’s

Posted: 04 Apr 2011 07:56 AM PDT

Still remember the K's? It's been quite a while since I last blogged about them. I had purposely distanced myself from the family because in addition to the fact that I am not the main buddy, (the main buddy is a male volunteer because the HIV infected is Mr K, while Mrs K had been tested negative) I also wanted them to know that I didn't like their habit of trying to borrow money every time they needed any. I have so many other clients who are worse off than this family, yet they never complained about not having enough money.

The children's basic educational needs were however still covered by our Children Education Fund and I still do get updates from time to time about them from their main buddy. However, from time to time, Mrs K would still send me text messages (in SMS lingo which forces me to think extra hard to decipher the message), although not directly asking for money, but implying that she's so desperate already. And to think that she thinks "kak Afizah tu garang". Imagine if she had the impression that I was a nice, kind-hearted, soft-spoken person… hehehe…

Well, recently while I was at the HIV clinic, she sent me another text message, telling me that they had to move to another house. She also said she was no longer getting the monthly financial help she used to be getting from the PAF. I don't know, this family doesn't seem to know how to manage their finances. Previously when they first got the monthly financial help, Mr K was rather too weak to work. So she was working alone. Now both of them are working, and although they aren't earning that much, I am sure Mr K's salary alone is more than the monthly financial help they used to get. I simply don't like it when my clients expect financial assistance to come their way all their life!

I just told her that the financial assistance from KL is not within our jurisdiction. We could just find out for them.

I am still however, very concerned, about the children's well-being. When they say they don't have anything to eat, they usually mean they don't have anything to eat. And that's usually because their parents have been spending their income on God knows what… very likely to pay off debts since they like to borrow money from every source they can find.

So when I finally got a message from Shah, their eldest son, instead of from Mrs K herself, saying that they ran out of food at home after moving to the new place, I knew he meant it. I had seen the same situation a few years back, when I went to visit, Shah and his sister were just about to have lunch at 3 pm – a cup of instant noodles, shared. And once when I brought along some groceries, their younger sister would say, "Hari ni adik nak makan nasii!" They hadn't had any rice for a few days.

This morning I decided to go and visit them. I knew Mr and Mrs K would be at work, but Shah and his youngest sister would be home. Loaded my car with rice, sugar, flour, cooking oil, canned sardines, anchovies, eggs, biscuits, milk etc and off I went to look for the house, based on the description given by Shah in his SMS. True to the description given, the house was quite easy to find. I didn't have to use my GPS.

The moment I honked, it was Shah's little sister who came to the door first. Yep, remember Baby K? She's 4 years old now. The moment I mentioned the word IJN (I was asking Shah if the girl still needed to go for follow-ups in IJN), she immediately showed me the scar on her chest, from the surgery done more than a year ago. Glad to note the girl seemed to be doing fine.

Anyway, I asked Shah if he had any plans for his future. I had been coaxing since after his SPM (his results weren't too good) to take up one of the short courses offered by Giat Mara. I could see he had the interest for stuff like automotive or electrical, so I had advised him to acquire those skills further in Giat Mara. But he wasn't keen back then. He said he wanted to work to help with the family's financial needs. His parents weren't too encouraging either, always giving the "dia tak nak" excuse.

Shah did go to a southern state for a while, supposedly to work, but after just 2 months, he came back and stayed home, and all he did since then was to take care of Baby K at home while his parents were out. What kind of a future do you think he has if he continues doing the same?

Thank goodness when I asked him today, Shah said he will start his short course in June, doing electrical wiring. He'd better not change his mind before June comes…

 


Only copy of sex video with police now released to public! Thanks, PDRM!

Posted: 04 Apr 2011 08:11 AM PDT

UPDATED @ 07:08:21 PM 04-04-2011
By Shannon Teoh
April 04, 2011

A woman is seen standing beside a bed in this still image from the clip.
KUALA LUMPUR, April 4 — A two-minute clip of the video purportedly showing Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim having sex was uploaded to YouTube yesterday and shared on several pro-Umno blogs.
The 1 minute 47 second clip shows two men and a woman before the alleged sex act.
The video uploaded also has a white strip at the bottom with Thai script written on it.
The strip was not on the version that first surfaced and originally shown to reporters two weeks ago at Carcosa Seri Negara here.
Businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay, one of the three men who claimed to be the mysterious "Datuk T" that exposed the video, told The Malaysian Insider that they had not released the video to anyone and that the only copy remained with the police.
"I don't know anything about this," he said, before stating that he would need to see the clip before commenting further.
Opposition Leader Anwar has denied he is the man in the video and accused Umno of a politically motivated "scurrilous attack" on him.
The involvement of former Umno Youth chief Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik and Perkasa treasurer-general Datuk Shuib Lazim has lent credence to the claim as Umno sought to distance itself from the video.
The clip has surfaced on the Internet just two days after police said the video they received was not doctored.
The police could not be reached for comment.
During a March 24 press conference, Abdul Rahim said the video was exposed to show "a man who wants to be prime minister is not qualified."
A recent opinion poll found that 51 per cent of those surveyed did not believe Anwar was the man in the video, with 39 per cent saying Barisan Nasional had masterminded the video — more than twice as many as those who said the ruling coalition was not involved.

My, O my. How did the only copy remained with police get into the public domain! Syabas to PDRM! Yeah!


Mat Sabu Nafi Sudah Tawar Diri Untuk Bertanding Timb Presiden

Posted: 04 Apr 2011 07:30 AM PDT

Hanya akan tanding kalau sokongan kuat, kata Mat Sabu

Ahli jawatankuasa PAS pusat Mohamad Sabu menafikan beliau secara rasmi sudah menawarkan diri bertanding jawatan timbalan presiden parti pada pemilihan parti Jun ini.

Sebaliknya, bekan naib presiden PAS itu berkata, beliau hanya akan mengumumkan secara rasmi pendiriannya seminggu sebelum pemilihan diadakan.

"Belum lagi... belum lagi... saya masih belum ada menawarkan diri lagi, bagaimana saya nak tawarkan diri kalau pencalonan pun saya belum tahu.

"Menawarkan diri itu istilah yang tidak betul, apa yang saya katakan saya bersedia menawarkan diri dan bertanding sekiranya pencalonan yang diterima saya kuat, kalau tidak kuat saya mungkin tidak akan bertanding,"
katanya kepada The Malaysian Insider.

Tegas Mohamad, apa-apa keputusan akan dibuat selepas semua kawasan membuat pencalonan dalam mesyuarat agung tahunan masing-masing bagi memilih pucuk pimpinan sehingga 10 Mei ini.

"Bagaimana saya buat keputusan, kita biarkanlah kawasan mesyuarat dulu, kalau saya hanya dapat tiga atau empat pencalonan susah untuk saya bertanding.

"Senang kata kalau sokongan saya kuat, saya akan bertanding dan kalau sokongan tidak kuat mungkin saya tidak akan bertanding tapi buat masa sekarang saya belum menawarkan diri secara rasmi lagi," katanya.

Sebuah portal berita hari ini melaporkan Mohamad secara rasmi menawarkan diri bertanding jawatan timbalan presiden dalam pemilihan parti itu.

Katanya, antara tujuan utama beliau menawarkan diri sekali lagi untuk bertanding adalah bagi membantu Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang menegakkan keadilan Islam khasnya di negeri yang diperintah Pakatan Rakyat.

Jawatan nombor dua parti ini dijangkakan menjadi rebutan antara penyandangnya Nasharudin Mat Isa selepas Naib Presiden PAS Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man mengesahkan tidak akan bertanding jawatan itu.

Bagaimanapun usaha The Malaysian Insider untuk mendapatkan pengesahan daripada Nasharudin sehingga kini masih belum berhasil.

Sekiranya, Mohamad bertanding ini merupakan kali kedua beliau berbuat demikian setelah tewas kepada Nasharudin dua tahun lalu.

Turut bertanding ketika itu ialah Datuk Husam Musa.

Ketika itu kedua-dua Mohamad dan Husam merupakan naib presiden.

Pada pemilihan itu, Nasarudin mendapat 480 undi untuk mengekalkan jawatannya, Husam memperoleh 281 undi manakala Mohamad hanya 261 undi. -TMI


Mat Sabu tawar diri tanding timbalan presiden

Seperti diduga, bekas naib presiden PAS Mohamad Sabu secara rasmi menawarkan diri bertanding jawatan timbalan presiden dalam pemilihan parti yang dijadual berlangsung pada Jun ini.

Katanya, antara tujuan utama beliau menawarkan diri sekali lagi untuk bertanding adalah bagi membantu presiden parti itu, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang menegakkan keadilan Islam khasnya di negeri yang diperintah Pakatan Rakyat.

"Saya juga mahu membantu presiden untuk memobilasi demokrasi dan kefahaman tentang demokrasi kepada rakyat supaya mereka memilihnya untuk diamalkan di Malaysia," katanya kepada Malaysiakini selepas menyampaikan ceramah di Subang Jaya malam semalam.

Menurutnya, selain itu, beliau juga mahu membantu Abdul Hadi bagi memperkukuhkan Pakatan Rakyat dengan mengukuhkan kerjasama parti dengan ahli gabungan dalam Pakatan dan juga NGO.

Katanya, memperkukuhkan Pakatan dapat diterjemahkan melalui melaksanakan "tindakan politik bersama-sama untuk kepentingan rakyat".

Beliau yang juga ahli jawatankuasa PAS Pusat berkata antara program yang beliau dapat memberikan khidmat kepada parti adalah melalui Himpunan Bersih.

Mantapkan Majlis Syura

Sehubungan itu, Mohamad berjanji akan cuba "mempergiatkan lagi" berfungsi sebagai timbalan presiden sekiranya dipillih menjadi orang nombor dua dalam parti itu.

Selain itu, katanya, beliau juga mahu mempermantapkan Majlis Syura supaya "betul-betul berfungsi" khususnya dalam soal menjaga displin dan mempertahan dasar parti.

Dalam pemilihan PAS dua tahun lalu, Mohamad tewas kepada penyandangnya Nasharuddin Mat Isa dan bekas naib presiden Datuk Husam Musa dalam persaingan tiga penjuru.

Nasharuddin mendapat 480 undi, Husam (281) dan Mohamad memperolehi 261 undi.

Mengulas mengenai jumlah percalonan kawasan yang diterimanya setakat ini, Mohamad berkata, beliau belum membuat tinjauan menyeluruh berhubung perkara itu.

Bagaimanapun, beliau ada mendengar beberapa kawasan "memohon" kepadanya supaya bertanding jawatan tersebut pada muktamar parti yang dijadual berlangsung pada 3 hingga 5 Jun ini.

"Keputusan akhir (untuk bertanding) bergantung kepada sokongan yang diterima... Ada kawan-kawan memberi galakan (untuk bertanding)," katanya.

NONEIbu pejabat parti menetapkan semua 179 kawasan membuat pencalonan dalam mesyuarat agung tahunan masing-masing bagi memilih pucuk pimpinan parti sehingga 10 Mei ini.

Setakat ini Mohamad mendapat satu pencalonan untuk bertanding bagi jawatan itu dari kawasan Kubang Kerian yang diketuai oleh exco kanan kerajaan negeri Kelantan Datuk Husam Musa.

'Saya sahaja...'

Namun, Mohamad dijangka tidak menghadapi masalah apabila beberapa lagi kawasan PAS di Wilayah Persekutuan dijangka akan mencalonkan beliau - antaranya di Batu, Kepong, Bukit Bintang dan Putrajaya.

Ditanya sama ada terdapat pimpin PAS lain yang akan mencabarnya merebut jawatan itu, Mohamad enggan mengulas lanjut.

"Saya kira (pencalonan) saya sahaja. Dalam PAS, ada adab berkempen (bagi individu) yang menawarkan diri... Saya tidak mahu menyentuh (hal) orang lain," katanya.

husam musa mat sabu nasharuddin mat isa 220409Ditanya sama ada beliau takut sekiranya terdapat pemimpin tertentu dalam parti mahu mencabarnya, Mohamad berkata ia adalah perkara biasa dalam permilihan parti.

"Saya biasa dicabar dan mencabar. Saya biasa memegang jawatan ketua pemuda, naib presiden dan kalah merebut timbalan presiden.

"Bagi saya kalah atau menang, saya tetap hadir (dalam muktamar) sebagai pejuang parti dan jamaah," tegasnya.

Sementara itu, dalam perkembangan berkaitan, ada sumber memberitahu Malaysiakini sekurang-kurangnya 10 daripada 22 kawasan di Selangor akan mencalonkan Mohamad merebut jawatan timbalan presiden.

pas seminar 071109 tuan ibrahimBagaimanapun sumber itu enggan mendedahkan kawasan mana yang bakal mencalonkan Mohamad yang juga timbalan pesuruhjaya PAS Pulau Pinang.

Menurut sumber itu lagi, beliau juga tidak menolak kemungkinan terdapat kawasan yang akan mencalonkan penyandangnya Nasharuddin dan naib presiden Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man untuk jawatan yang sama. -mk



Good luck or Bad Luck?

Posted: 04 Apr 2011 06:21 AM PDT

There is a Chinese story of an old farmer who had an old horse for tilling his fields. One day the horse escaped into the hills and, when all the farmer's neighbours sympathised with the old man over his bad luck, the farmer replied, 'Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?'


A week later the horse returned with a herd of wild horses from the hills and this time the neighbours congratulated the farmer on his good luck. His reply was, 'Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?'
Then, when the farmer's son was attempted to tame one of the wild horses, he fell off its back and broke his leg. Everyone thought this very bad luck. Not the farmer, whose only reaction was, 'Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?'

Some weeks later the army marched into the village and conscripted every able-bodied youth they found there. When they saw the farmer's son with his broken leg they let him off. Now was that good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?

ISA Ke Atas OKU - Kezaliman Yang Tidak Boleh Dimaafkan

Posted: 04 Apr 2011 05:58 AM PDT

Apa kesalahan adik saya?'

Keluarga kepada Kadir Hashim hari ini menuntut supaya tahanan ISA itu segera dibebaskan atau didakwa di mahkamah.

Salah seorang abangnya, Muda, 46, berkata polis juga perlu menjelaskan kesalahan yang dilakukan oleh Kadir.

"Saya dimaklumkan adik saya ditahan bawah ISA, tapi saya tak puas hati sebab saya tak tahu kenapa dia ditangkap.

"Kalau dia ada lakukan kesalahan, tolong bawa dia ke mahkamah.

"Kalau dia ditahan tanpa apa-apa sebab bermakna pemerintahan kita cukup zalim," kata Muda dalam satu sidang media hari ini.

Kadir, 42, ditahan oleh sekumpulan lebih 10 anggota polis berpakaian preman di rumah keluarganya pada petang Jumaat lalu.

Muda berkata, anggota keluarganya kini masih belum mengetahui di manakah adiknya itu ditahan.

Kegiatan subversif

"Saya juga tidak dibenarkan masuk ke rumah ketika beliau ditahan," katanya lagi sambil mengetap bibir menahan kemarahannya.

Seorang lagi abang kepada Kadir berkata, penahanan lelaki kelainan upaya itu merupakan "kebiadapan" kerajaan yang menjalankan penahanan sewenang-wenang.

"Ini bukan soal politik, tapi kebiadapan (kerajaan)," kata Hisham, 43.

Jelasnya, polis hanya menyatakan bahawa Kadir ditahan kerana terlibat dalam kegiatan subversif.

"Sebab itu terlalu umum," kata Hisham lagi.

Dalam sidang media sama, peguam N Surendran turut membuat panggilan kepada seorang pegawai di ibu pejabat polis Bukit Aman.

Namun, pegawai itu juga enggan menjelaskan sebab penahanan berkenaan.

Pegawai atasan

Pegawai itu juga meminta Surendran menghantar surat bagi mendapatkan penjelasan serta membuat permohonan untuk berjumpa Kadir.

Perbualan telefon yang disalurkan ke pembesar suara dalam bilik sidang media itu dapat didengar oleh wartawan.

Pegawai polis yang memperkenalkan dirinya sebagai ACP Normah Ishak juga berkata, beliau hanyalah pegawai yang bertanggungjawab menjaga Kadir.

Katanya, sebab penahanan Kadir hanya dapat dijelaskan oleh pegawai atasannya.

Seorang pegawai lain bertanggungjawab ke atas penahanan itu, kata Normah lagi.

Ketika diasak untuk memberikan nama pegawai tersebut, Normah berkata peguam perlu menulis kepada Bukit Aman terlebih dahulu.

Normah berkata, Kadir sedang ditahan di salah sebuah premis Bukit Aman.

Ketika didesak supaya memberitahu lokasi sebenar Kadir ditahan, Normah sekadar berkata: "Saya tak boleh beritahu."

Surendran ketika mengulas perkembangan itu berkata, beliau akan memfailkan notis habeas corpus sekiranya Kadir tidak dibebaskan segera.



"Siapa Nak Beri Makan Makcik?"

"Makcik merayu supaya anak makcik dibebaskan. Makcik yakin dia tak bersalah," rayu Mah Mat Idris (gambar) berusia 67 tahun sambil menitiskan air mata. Mah adalah ibu kepada Kadir Hashim, 42, ahli PKR– orang kelainan upaya (OKU) yang ditangkap mengikut Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA), 1 April lalu. Kadir kudung pergelangan tangan kiri tetapi didakwa terlibat dalam kegiatan berunsur subversif iaitu aktiviti untuk melemahkan atau memusnahkan sesuatu sistem politik, kerajaan, agama, dengan menjalankan aktiviti tertentu secara sulit.

"Bila Kadir tiada selama tiga hari, makcik terasa sunyi. Tak ada selera makan memikirkan keadaan dia di sana entah bagaimana. "Setiap hari, dia yang menguruskan makan minum makcik kerana anak-anak yang lain jauh," katanya sambil mengalirkan air mata rindu. Beliau yang uzur, ditambah dengan derita penyakit kencing manis dan darah tinggi hingga terpaksa bergantung kepada ubat-ubatan hospital, begitu berharap anaknya dilepaskan segera.

"Makcik teringin sangat nak jumpa dia (Kadir), lagi pun polis tidak pernah hubungi mak cik sejak dia ditangkap. "Sejak arwah suami meninggal dunia hujung tahun lalu, makcik hanya mengharapkan Kadir. Makcik terlalu sedih dengan apa yang menimpanya," katanya dalam keadaan lemah lantaran demam dan sakit kepala memikirkan nasib dan keselamatan anaknya itu.

Muda Hashim, 46, abang kepada mangsa kesal dengan perbuatan polis yang mengepung di sekitar rumah mereka pada hari penangkapan tanpa mengeluarkan waran tangkap terhadap Kadir. Malah, disifatkan cara polis mengepung kawasan rumah itu seperti adiknya penjenayah besar.

"Selepas adik saya dibawa masuk ke dalam kereta, baru seorang daripada mereka memberi salinan penangkapan mengikut ISA lebih kurang jam 6.50 petang," katanya. Menceritakan detik penangkapan, Muda berkata, beliau mulanya tidak perasaan kehadiran sekumpulan polis kerana mereka memakai berbaju biasa dan menyangka pemaju datang meninjau tapak projek di kawasan itu.

"Tetapi selepas mendapati mereka mengepung seperti mahu menangkap penjenayah besar, saya terus bertanya tetapi mereka dengan angkuhnya memberitahu, mereka polis daripada Bukit Aman. "Melihat (polis) bawa adik saya dengan tangan bergari, saya terus bertanya tetapi tidak dilayan. Mereka suruh saya sediakan peguam dan mengatakan mereka hanya jalankan tugas," katanya.

Muda yang yakin adiknya tidak bersalah itu menganggap perbuatan zalim polis tidak ubah seperti kerajaan komunis memandangkan mereka sekeluarga dari golongan miskin. "Kita tidak boleh bersuara langsung. Ini semua seperti duduk dalam kerajaan komunis yang lebih berminat dengan ISA. Undang-undang yang dipraktikkan kerajaan ini undang-undang Yahudi.

"Saya ada menghubungi pegawai polis yang terlibat bertanyakan keadaan Kadir, tetapi kakitangan di sana memberi alasan tidak berada di pejabat, "katanya. Dalam pada itu, beliau memberitahu seorang peguam datang berjumpa dengannya semalam dan berjanji akan menguruskan kes adiknya supaya dibebaskan secepat mungkin.

"Peguam itu datang berjumpa selepas saya memberitahu ketua cabang Lembah Pantai berkenaan penangkapan Kadir. "Saya hanya menunggu jawapan daripada peguam itu dan berdoa supaya polis membebaskan Kadir," katanya. Kadir ditahan mengikut Seksyen 73 (1) Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA) di rumahnya di, Kampung Kerinchi, Kuala Lumpur./klt

  • Kenyataan Media: Respon terhadap Tayangan Video Dato’ T oleh Cybertroopers UMNO

    Posted: 04 Apr 2011 04:56 AM PDT

    Sewaktu 'Dato' T' mula-mula menayangkan video skandal seks yang kononnya melibatkan pemimpin pembangkang di Carcosa Seri Negara dan saya tegaskan bahawa video tersebut palsu, tukang sorak-tukang sorak UMNO bertanya bagaimana saya yakin bahawa video tersebut bukan melibatkan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim apabila saya belum menontonnya.

    Hari ini saya terpaksa menonton sedutan video tersebut. Selepas menonton video tersebut, kenyataan awal saya terbukti benar memandangkan sosok dan lenggok badan watak utama termasuk perut yang menonjol jelas sekali bukan sosok badan Anwar.

    Hakikat ini mungkin tidak jelas bagi mereka yang tidak mengenali Anwar secara dekat, tetapi sebagai bekas Setiausaha Sulit beliau selama dua tahun saya tahu bahawa itu bukan Anwar.

    Apatah lagi saya mengenali keperibadiannya sebagai seorang Muslim dan pemimpin keluarga yang baik.

    Jelas sekali video ini dibuat untuk tujuan politik. Tarikh video ini ditayangkan kepada wartawan dan seterusnya kini didedahkan sedutannya kepada umum dibuat untuk tujuan strategik sempena Pilihan Raya Negeri Sarawak.

    Enam persoalan asas masih belum terjawab:

    1. Mengapa Rahim Tamby Chik, Shazril Eskay dan Shuib Lazim tidak berani mendedahkan diri mereka ketika mula-mula menayangkan video kepada editor-editor kanan milik Barisan Nasional di Carcosa?

    2. Siapakah individu ketiga dalam video tersebut? Kehadiran lelaki ketiga yang bertindak seperti pengarah video menggambarkan ini bukan rakaman CCTV rahsia sebagaimana didakwa Dato' T.

    3. Adakah mereka tidak yakin dengan kewibawaan moral mereka sendiri ataupun khuatir bahawa rakyat akan menyimpulkan video ini satu lagi usaha UMNO-Barisan Nasional untuk menyerang Anwar memandangkan ketiga-tiga mereka mempunyai hubungan dengan UMNO khususnya Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad dan Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak?

    4. Dato' T mendakwa video ini dirakam di sebuah hotel di Kuala Lumpur. Namun tulisan di dalam video tersebut (di dalam bahasa Thai) apabila diterjemah menyebut "Phaholyothin Road Bangkok, Thailand 10400, Copyright 2011". Adakah video ini sebenarnya video lucah Thai yang tiada kaitan dengan Malaysia?

    5. Mengapa UMNO diam membisu tentang pandangan tiga mufti: Dr Juanda Jaya (Perlis), Datuk Tamyes Abd Wahid (Selangor) dan Datuk Mohammad Shukri Mohammad (Kelantan) yang meminta umat Islam mengesahkan dulu sebarang maklumat yang datang daripada pihak yang fasik? Malah, Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria (Perak) juga mengeluarkan pandangan serupa tetapi menurutnya tidak dilaporkan Utusan Malaysia.

    6. Mengapa pihak polis yang tegas memberi amaran kepada orang ramai jangan mengedar video Chua Soi Lek dahulu (yang diakui Soi Lek sendiri benar) tidak mengambil pendekatan sama kali ini?

    Sudah sampai masanya kita menghentikan politik fitnah kotor dan keji yang merendahkan wibawa politik negara kita. Pada awal tahun ini rakyat menaruh harapan terbitnya Buku Jingga Pakatan Rakyat akan memulakan budaya baru politik mengenai idea dan polisi yang menandakan kematangan masyarakat negara kita. Malangnya bukan sahaja Najib menolak berbahas mengenai Buku Jingga, tetapi dalam keadaan beliau terdesak kini nampaknya membiarkan budaya politik busuk terus
    bermaharajalela.

    Ketika arus demokrasi berkembang pesat di seluruh dunia, politik Malaysia nampaknya masih lagi pada takat yang lama.


    Jihad in Australia against Hindus

    Australia: Muslims spray Hindu temple with bullets

    Behind-the-scenes talks are trying to put a stop to terrifying, violent attacks on a minority religious community, write Eamonn Duff and Natalie O'Brien.

    The problem with the Aussies is that they tolerate fanatics and extremists amongst them. The 57 member OIC countries screw their minorities in their own countries, the list is endless, on how. In Christian majority countries they take advantage of the charitable nature of Christians to persecute others. This is a wake up call for Christians. Until reciprocation is afforded to all faiths, the Christians countries should not turn their other cheek. Christians should actively proselytize their faith amongst Muslims, in Christian countries. They should restrict Muslims proselytizing in Christian majority countries as they do in Muslim majority countries. Equality works both ways. Currently in the 57 OIC countries, it does not. Bah! Humbug! Indeed, throughout the centuries Muslims have been responsible for the Genocide of Hindus..

    IT BEGAN with minor acts of vandalism, including egg throwing and smashed windows, but instead of remaining periodic footnotes in the night log at Auburn police station, the incidents have grown so violent - and the issue so culturally sensitive - that even authorities are reluctant to speak about them publicly. Australia's oldest Hindu temple, the Sri Mandir in Auburn, is under siege and its devotees gripped by fear.

    On March 19, two men in balaclavas stood at the intersection of a nearby road, spraying the front of the prayer hall with eight rounds of bullets. The building was unoccupied at the time. The busy Hindu temple opened in 1977. It is surrounded by a predominantly Muslim population and it is no secret among locals that tensions have been simmering in recent years, caused by concerns about noise and parking problems at Sri Mandir.

    ''There is no excuse [for the gun attack],'' the editor of Sydney newspaper The Indian, Rohit Revo, said. ''This was not the work of teenagers; neither was it a petty prank. This is part of a sustained and increasingly violent campaign to scare the temple devotees and drive them out. By definition, this latest attack was an act of terrorism.'' The Sun-Herald is aware the ongoing feud has caused disquiet among some of the most senior police in western Sydney. In a rare move, details of the shooting were deliberately held back from the NSW police media unit through concern that publicity might inflame hostilities.

    Auburn City Council claims the first it knew of the incident was when The Sydney Morning Herald published an article on Wednesday. Since then, the chairman of the Community Relations Commission, Stepan Kerkyasharian, has stepped in as an intermediary between Hindus and Muslims. ''Given the enormity and complexity of the issues, this is a classic example where we need to apply the principles of multiculturalism and get people to understand and accept that we are a religiously diverse community … we live together and we respect each other's religious diversity,'' he told The Sun-Herald.

    ''We will be pursuing this through the commission and meeting people in the neighbourhood to discuss the issues. I will be very active in the area.'' Temple priest Jatinkumar Bhatt is praying for a peaceful solution for the sake of his three young children. Bhatt and his family live behind the temple and are too frightened to go outdoors after dark. ''On the night of the shooting, we heard the noise, but every 10 or 15 days we experience the sound of firecrackers being thrown [over the fence], so we thought it must be that again,'' Mr Bhatt said.

    ''Then the police came. They showed me the bullet holes in the walls and asked permission to come in and investigate. I am too afraid to say why I think this is happening.'' In an attack in November, four men wielding iron bars smashed their way through 10-millimetre- thick windows, showering the hall with glass while devotees were praying inside. The temple recently held a community open day in the hope of brokering fresh ties with the wider community.

    ''Many of our neighbours are very friendly but sometimes it feels like we are in a different place to Australia,'' Mr Bhatt said. ''The attacks are now always. It is like in Libya or Afghanistan.'' Mr Kerkyasharian has met the Bhatt family. ''The teenage daughter says she feels like she lives in a prison,'' he said. ''She said her younger brother doesn't know how to play because they are too scared to go outside to their front yard.''

    The founder of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, Keysar Trad, said he had given a speech at the open day, in which he stressed the need to ''respect religious places of all faiths''. ''I am convinced these problems are not being caused by people who are religious and would urge the Muslim community to show support and solidarity to their neighbours at this time,'' he said. Flemington local area commander Superintendent Phillip Rogerson said police were trying to identify the attackers. Auburn Labor MP Barbara Perry said: ''I've got every sympathy for the Hindu community. This type of behaviour should not be tolerated.'' From Sydney Morning Herald. Hat tip: Jihad Watch

    PLEASE YANG BERHORMAT, SPEAK WISELY

    Posted: 04 Apr 2011 04:21 AM PDT

    Now there are calls from certain parliamentarian to screen the sex video that alleges Anwar Ibrahim's involvement as the porno star. What a dumb and stupid idea is this? Can't these honourable MPs think straight or have they all got bitchy themselves? If at all they want to see a porno video, just search the internet like what the two MACC officers in the Teoh Beng Hock trial did; to satisfy their lust for sex videos in the comfort of their office.

    And I am just wondering what would their wives at home think of their husbands watching a sex video in parliament? Haven't they had enough of the sex lives at home? And do they not realize that there are women MPs around, and what would these women MPs say? I am yet to hear someone from among them protest, or have they too got bitchy themselves?

    I can only ask this, "What is actually happening to our Yang Berhormats"? I have lived long enough to witness the birth of our Parliament soon after Merdeka and to read what all is being debated and discussed. There has never been a request for a free sex video screening in Parliament before, and I do not think there has ever been one like this in the august house of any other country; not even in Zimbabwe or Lesoto. News like this travels fast and I am quite sure parliamentarians across the world will be laughing their hearts out at this stupidity.

    And earlier too, I read that there have been demands by some quarters that a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) be formed over the sex video episode………….an RCI just to determine whether it was Anwar Ibrahim or not in the video? The police have said that the video is authentic, but the main actor is uncertain. So they will now need an expert (a foreign one) to determine who the male porno actor is. And my question is………..do you really need an RCI for a case like this? Are we not making the King look stupid if ever he agrees to the RCI? Just look at the outcome of the Lingam Tape…….korek, korek, korek case. What has been the outcome? And the only thing we got was denial from everyone, and the case got nowhere.

    My final word on this sex video episode is to request for our parliamentarians act and talk intelligently. And I know that there some among them that are intelligent, but please speak out against those who act and talk stupid.

    CRUSADE AGAINST CORRUPTION


    前朝国阵县市议员没有选区、无需设立服务中心以及享有额外收入

    Posted: 04 Apr 2011 03:35 AM PDT

    马华雪州公共投诉局主任汤木以及前任州市议员林春景在4月1日通过记者会炮轰民联州政府提升县市议员的津贴。其中所提出的理由就是以前他们担任县市议员时即使以低微的津贴都能够维持对人民的服务。汤林两人的言论严重其实已经误导读者。第一、汤林两人尤其是前八打灵再也市议员兼百乐镇前州议员林春景是否忘记前朝国阵政府委任没有担任任何官职的国阵州议员出任县市议员?由于当时的国阵州议员(行政议员除外)也兼任县市议员,因此国阵的州议员一个人领两份薪金,即从州政府领取州议员的津贴,还从地方政府领取县市议员的津贴。如此一来,出任县市议员的国阵州议员根本无需理会县市议员津贴的高低。第二、前朝国阵县市议员没有获分任何选区管理。民联的县市议员规定必须领养选区,并定期主办活动和选民见面。地方政府也提供津贴给他们,好让他们能够聘请助理和设立里办公室,让他们能够更有效地服务选民。这一切都是前朝国阵时期不曾发生的。


    Kasih Sayang Alesha Untuk Adiknya Arwah AdeLia.

    Posted: 04 Apr 2011 02:42 AM PDT

    Sila baca sebuah posting yang extremely touching, oleh mak saudara Arwah AdeLia - she~steps~in~too...
    Terima kasih..
    Semoga pihak taska yang terlibat menjelaskan dengan terusterang apa yang berlaku pada pagi itu.
    Janganlah selindung apa2 hanya kerana hendak menjaga bisnes taska.

    p.s. Bagi ibubapa yang menghantar anak2 disitu, janganlah terlalu risau dimana hendak menghantar anak2 sekiranya, tindakan diambil terhadap taska yang berkemungkinan besar telah cuai.

    Sepatutnya ibubapa yang lain bersyukur sangat2 kerana bukan anak mereka yang terkorban pada pagi yang malang itu.
    Mereka harus sokong tindakan ibubapa arwah AdeLia untuk menegakkan keadilan.

    Pengorbanan Arwah AdeLia tidak harus dipersia2kan begitu sahaja.
    Taska2 yang lain di seluruh Malaysia mungkin mengambil iktibar dari kes arwah AdeLia yang tidak dilakkan begitu saja.
    Selama ini, berapa kes kecuaian di taska yang telah dimaafkan begitu saja?
    Mulai dari sekarang, JKM mesti bertindak dengan sekeras2nya.
