From Malaysiakini.comThe Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's (MACC) inaction on abuses highlighted by past Auditor-General's Reports have contributed to a complacent civil service, said Kampung Tunku state assemblyperson Lau Weng San.In a statement yesterday, Lau (right) said the latest MACC pledge to investigate 36 cases highlighted by the Auditor-General's Report 2010 was thus meaningless

反贪委员会要开档调查三十六宗涉及政府部门的贪污案件只不过是毫无意义的官腔,这是因为反贪会至今仍无法完成其在2006年针对政府部门以高于市价的价格购买各种器材的贪污弊端所作出的调查。 当年的稽查报告揭露不少公款管理不当的案件,其中包括以一套1千146零吉的价格购买市价160零吉的笔具,此外,青年体育部也被揭以1千164零吉的价格购买市价50零吉的汽车千斤顶。尽管国家总稽查司每年都针对这些纰漏给予警告,然而,类似事件每年却周而复始地上演,而反贪会在每次总稽查司报告揭发这些弊端后,往往没有即刻采取行动去对付那些涉及公款处理不当的相关人士。因此,反贪会近日说将针对今年总稽查司报告所揭之纰漏开档调查的说法,只不过是毫无意义的官腔。当反贪会五年前的调查行动已经变成不了了之,国人该如何期望反贪会现在会风雷厉行地对付涉及的相关部门及官员呢?当公务员看到反贪会的无能及疏忽,他们将视法律为无物,

science and mathematics MUST be learned in english

Posted: 28 Oct 2011 09:28 AM PDT

yes, no doubt about it… because science and maths are knowledge-based subjects unlike history, georgraphy, which are learning subjects with facts. beside, we all know that english is the universal language and to compete in the world, our children in school must master these two subjects in english.

the parents action education group (PAGE) is pushing for these two subjects to be taught/learned in english as an option. 'the teaching and learning of science and maths in english' -otherwise more known in our bahasa language in 'pengajaran dan pembelajaran sains dan matematik dalam bahasa inggeris' or in short PPSMI.

PAGE has started a facebook group known as 1M malaysians say yes to PPSMI as an option on 9 october and it aimed to hit 100,000 members by end of october. they are also collecting petitions and will present the petitions to the education minister. if you have not joined the group yet, please do so. give your support. think of your children and all children in our country. think of their future.

Aiseh, Lelaki Tumbuk Sepupu Wanitanya Hingga Patah Hidung

Posted: 28 Oct 2011 11:23 AM PDT

Kuantan - Seorang lelaki menumbuk sepupu wanitanya sehingga patah hidung kerana geram dengan wanita itu yang mengambil dompetnya sebagai satu gurauan. Gambar fail.

Timbalan Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Pahang Supritendan Mohd Haris Daud berkata, sebelum kejadian, lelaki berusia 22 tahun itu pergi berjumpa sepupunya yang bekerja sebagai jurujual di sebuah kedai perabot di Raub, pagi semalam.

Beliau berkata, sebelum beredar, dompet lelaki terbabit telah diambil oleh sepupunya berusia 24 tahun tanpa disedari sebagai satu gurauan.

"Kira-kira 12 tengah hari itu, wanita tersebut ke rumah sepupu lelakinya di Taman Raub Jaya untuk memulangkan semula dompetnya," katanya kepada pemberita di sini hari ini.

Katanya, selepas memulangkan dompet berkenaan, mangsa yang hendak pulang telah dihalang oleh sepupu lelakinya itu, yang melepaskan tumbukan ke bahagian muka sepupunya selain menyepak dan menghantuk mangsa ke dinding, kerana dipercayai geram dengan gurauan itu.

Beliau berkata, lelaki itu dipercayai terlalu marah kerana memerlukan kad pengenalannya untuk belajar memandu. - Bernama

Living From Hand To Mouth

Recent articles on What AG's report Says on Penang, Selangor, Kelantan, and Kedah provide evidence that state governments under PR doing well (financially). But does this mean the rakyat are happy? There is hardly any point if the state is rich while the rakyat remain poor. While such glowing reports make netizens happy, voters care more about making ends meet than about sterling performances, especially in the light of this Bloomberg report which said that "Malaysia's inflation unexpectedly quickened in September as food and transportation costs climbed and a weakening ringgit made imports costlier".

According to Monsoon (Cup) winds of change,  a well-known Malaysian business magazine reported that Terengganu is the second richest state after Selangor but its rakyat are the second poorest after Perlis. The Kelantan Menteri Besar, Tok Guru Nik Aziz Nik Mat, retorted that Kelantan may be poor compared to Terengganu, but its people are rich. "Kekayaan Kelantan di tangan rakyat," said Nik Aziz.  In early 2000, he also said that Terengganu is 2nd richest state in Malaysia but rakyat are poor while Kelantan is 2nd poorest state but the rakyat are rich.

With all the economic hardship that people faced despite the fact that the state was rich, the opposition lost Terengganu back to BN in 2004. However, Kelantan stayed with opposition in spite of no development for different reasons - namely dignity and pride in the their faith of surviving without federal funding and in spite of being squeezed of federal funding.

That lesson from the pages of history is an illuminating one. Our political landscape  is currently in a very unpredictable and fuzzy state. Is there any point in PR crowing and boasting about how well state is doing?

Positive reports are impressive and leaves one with a syiok sendiri feeling but when rakyat vote, it will be based on how well they are REALLY doing. In the light of rising food prices, people are not as happy as PR may think. So PR had better be aware!

In reality, there are many individuals, families and large groups which have been pushed to the margins of society. These marginalized citizens are limited in education and employment opportunities as well as social and community networks. They have little access to power and decision-making and few opportunities to improve their standard of living.

Most worrying is that in time, more and more will be marginalized and if things do not improve in every area of governance, what will happen to Malaysia?

It is imperative that the government focuses on addressing real and serious issues that affect the rakyat instead of pushing their grandiose dreams and going on spending sprees. Tax revenue is from the rakyat and should directly benefit the rakyat in relevant ways.

Poverty is still very real in many ways with greater income inequality as the current system has serious limitations. According to the Central Intelligence Agency of US, 3.6% of the population (2007) live below the poverty line. Imagine - just a few years ago, a can of tuna was RM2.80. Three or four years down the road, that same can of tuna is RM4.90 whilst our real income has not risen much!

Whilst the government has said it has provided subsidies to reduce the people's burden in purchasing rice, RON 95 petrol, diesel and cooking gas, the fact remains that the cost of living in Malaysia has gone up. Many are living from hand to mouth.

It is imperative that Pakatan Rakyat comes up with concrete proposals to tell the rakyat as to how they will help us.

For over fifty years, we have seen how many politicians mudah lupa and then completely lupa. We have seen how some have put self-interest and party interest far above the rakyat's interest. All that has to end. Are they willing to walk the extra mile for us? They had better!

TBH's kin lodges report to compel probe on MACC trio
2:56PM Oct 28, 2011
Teoh Beng Hock's family today lodged a police report to compel investigations on individuals implicated by the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on the political aide's death. 

Gobind Singh Deo, counsel for Teoh's family, said this is in response to de facto Law Minister Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz who in his statement in the Dewan Rakyat on Monday, said no criminal investigations were launched against three Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) implicated by the RCI because no police report was lodged.
Gobind lamented that the police report is a step back because a police report had already been made when Beng Hock died two years ago and pointed out there had been many rounds of investigations since, and the only thing left to do is to decide whether to bring forth criminal charges.

Gobind said, "If we are going to charge, then charge. If not, tell the family why is it we are not going charge despite having findings by the RCI, which clearly suggest there has been criminal wrongdoing."

Speaking to reporters before lodging the report at Tun HS Lee police station, Gobind questioned whether the attorney-general had no confidence in convicting those implicated based on the RCI's findings and said, "Does it mean that ultimately, even the RCI report does not inspire confidence? (Nevertheless) if the minister requires us to lodge a report so that action could be taken, then so be it."

On July 21, the RCI concluded that Teoh was driven to suicide by four rounds of aggressive interrogation that breached procedures - hence, it recommended that criminal action be taken against Hishammuddin, investigating officer Mohd Anuar Ismail and officer Mohd Ashraf Yunus.

Kes Beng Hock: Nazri Jangan Berdalih Lagi, Keluarga Beng Hock Buat Laporan Polis

Posted: 28 Oct 2011 08:33 AM PDT

Keluarga Teoh Beng Hock menuntut polis menyiasat tiga pegawai Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) yang dinamakan dalam laporan suruhanjaya diraja berhubung kematian bekas setiausaha politik DAP itu.

Tengah hari tadi keluarga itu membuat laporan polis dengan harapan satu siasatan jenayah akan dijalankan.

"Bukan kami tidak ada kesabaran. Kami sudah lama bersabar dan telah diambil kesempatan (ekoran kesabaran kami)," kata kakak Beng Hock, Lee Lan selepas membuat laporan di balai polis Tun H.S. Lee di sini.

"Kami sudah lama menunggu dan tiada tindakan serius daripada kerajaan," tambah Lee Lan.

Peguam yang mewakili keluarga Teo, Gobind Singh Deo pula berkata, laporan polis dibuat berikutan kenyataan Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz di Dewan Rakyat Isnin lalu bahawa kerajaan tidak mengenakan tindakan pendakwaan ke atas tiga pegawai SPRM terbabit meskipun mereka dinamakan dalam laporan dikeluarkan tiga bulan lalu berikutan tiada laporan polis dibuat.

"(Jadi) hari ini kami membuat laporan polis ekoran penemuan suruhanjaya diraja untuk memastikan siasatan dijalankan dan tindakan sewajarnya di ambil ke atas mereka yang bertanggungjawab di atas kematian Teoh Beng Hock," katanya.

Gobind juga menyuarakan kekecewaannya terhadap kenyataan Nazri kerana tiada tindakan diambil terhadap tiga pegawai terbabit sedangkan laporan suruhanjaya diraja sudah membuktikan perkara itu.

"Kes ini telah berjalan dua tahun lebih tetapi masih tiada tindakan diambil, saya mencabar Nazri untuk ambil tindakan.

"Saya juga kecewa dengan kenyataan Nazri Aziz berikutan tiada siasatan akan dijalankan terhadap pegawai terbabit kerana tiada laporan polis dibuat, adakah pihak polis sendiri tidak boleh membuat laporan?" katanya.

Dalam satu kenyataan kepada The Malaysian Insider semalam keluarga Beng Hock mendakwa pentadbiran Najib seolah-olah "memperkudakan" mereka dengan tidak mengambil tindakan ke atas tiga pegawai SPRM meskipun siasatan suruhanjaya diraja mendapati mereka telah menyumbang kepada kematian bekas setiausaha politik itu dua tahun lalu.

Menurut keluarga itu, ketiadaan tindakan susulan di pihak kerajaan menimbulkan keraguan yang serius, bukan sahaja ke atas suruhanjaya diraja malah hakim Mahkamah Persekutuan Tan Sri Datuk Seri James Foong Cheng Yuen yang telah bertindak sebagai pengerusinya.

Isnin lalu, Nazri memberitahu Dewan Rakyat bahawa kerajaan tidak akan mengenakan tindakan pendakwaan ke atas tiga pegawai SPRM meskipun mereka dinamakan dalam laporan yang dikeluarkan tiga bulan lalu sebab tiada sesiapa pun membuat laporan agar dibuat sedemikian.

Kata keluarga itu, mereka ragu-ragu dan sangsi dengan sikap kerajaan dan laporan suruhanjaya itu dan dengan perkembangan hanya membiarkan SPRM mengetuai satu lagi siasatan mereka sendiri ke atas pegawai-pegawainya.

Mereka menekankan bahawa ketiga-tiga pegawai berkenaan telah menggunakan tindakan yang tidak sewajarnya untuk mendapatkan maklumat daripada Beng Hock, yang merupakan satu-satunya saksi ketika siasatan dikendalikan di bangunan Plaza Masalam di Shah Alam — premis mendiang ditemui mati.

Selain itu keluarga berkenaan juga menekankan bahawa suruhanjaya diraja telah menamakan ketiga-tiga pegawai terdiri daripada pegawai penyiasat Mohd Anuar Isamil, yang digambarkan sebagai "pembuli", Mohd Ashraf Mohd Yunus sebagai "yang penganiaya" dan bekas pengarah SPRM Selangor Hishammuddin Hashim sebagai "pemimpin yang angkuh".

Menurut Nazri, Jabatan Peguam Negara belum mengambil sebarang tindakan terhadap tiga pegawai SPRM yang dinamakan dalam laporan suruhanjaya diraja kematian Beng Hock kerana tidak ada laporan polis dibuat berhubung perkara itu.

"Sepanjang pengetahuan jabatan ini, belum ada apa-apa laporan polis dibuat oleh mana-mana pihak berhubung penemuan pihak suruhanjaya itu dan tiada kertas siasatan dibuka untuk siasatan lanjut.

"Oleh itu, tidak timbul isu Peguam Negara takut untuk mengambil tindakan kepada pegawai SPRM tersebut," kata Nazri.

Nazri berkata, berikutan laporan yang dikeluarkan suruhanjaya diraja, SPRM menubuhkan satu pasukan siasatan khas untuk menzahirkan fakta dalam laporan berkenaan berkaitan tiga pegawai SPRM itu.

"Selanjutnya, satu laporan tatatertib akan disediakan sekiranya wujud kesalahan dan pelanggaran peraturan dan prosedur dalam proses siasatan," katanya.

Laporan mengenai siasatan dalaman terhadap ketiga-tiga pegawai dibentangkan kepada jawatankuasa aduan yang dibentuk di bawah Akta Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia 2009.

Jawatankuasa aduan telah minta siasatan lanjut diadakan sebelum laporan dikemukakan kepada jawatankuasa tatatertib bagi membolehkan tindakan diambil terhadap tiga pegawai tersebut yang dinamakan dalam laporan.

"Satu siasatan terperinci akan dilakukan oleh polis berdasarkan oleh laporan jawatankuasa tatatertib dan kemudian dirujuk kepada Jabatan Peguam Negara.

"Jika ada kes jenayah, kertas siasatan akan dibuka untuk mendakwa mereka yang terlibat di bawah kanun keseksaan, atau undang-undang yang sesuai, selaras budi bicara Peguam Negara mengikut Akta 145 (3) Perlembagaan Persekutuan untuk membuat pertuduhan jenayah atau pendakwaan," katanya.

Ulasan GB

Akhirnya saranan GB diterima. Sebelum ini GB menyatakan bahawa peguam Teoh Beng Hock perlu membuat laporan polis terhadap pegawai-pegawai SPRM yang menyalahgunakan kuasanya itu. Kita tidak boleh memberi ruang kepada Nazri atau sesiapa juga di dalam kerajaan untuk memberikan apa-apa alasan dan dalih untuk tidak bertindak keatas pegawai SPRM tersebut. Petikan:

Ini satu kelemahan pihak peguam Teoh Beng Hock.

GB berharap para peguam TBH perlu membuat laporan polis dengan kadar segera terhadap pegawai-pegawai SPRM yang telah terang dan nyata disebutkan di dalam laporan Suruhanjaya Siasatan melakukan penyalahgunaan kuasa.

Pegawai-pegawai SPRM tersebut TIDAK BOLEH dilepaskan begitu sahaja tanpa sebarang tindakan diambil terhadapnya.

Gobind Singh Deo, where are you?
