Please keep the Death Sentence; just don’t make it mandatory…

(1) ALTANTUYA: Killers to hang by the neck until they’re dead!

Shahril Jaafar was sentenced to death for 2006 murder of Chee Gaik Yap.

Liew Vui Keong, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, said in October 2018 that a bill to abolish the death penalty is to be tabled at the ongoing Dewan Rakyat sitting.

11 November 2018

If after a trial, he is found guilty…

KUALA LUMPUR: A nine-month-old baby girl has died due to the alleged inhuman acts of a male suspect on Thursday in Bandar Baru Bangi, near here.

The victim was believed to have been raped, sodomised and abused before falling into critical condition.

Kajang police chief ACP Ahmad Dzaffir Mohd Yussof said the victim died at 10.30 am Friday after being admitted for two days at the Serdang Hospital, near here.

“Based on the statement of the victim’s mother, when she was sent to the caretaker’s home in the morning, the victim was in good health. However, the victim was said to have suffered from shortness of breath in the afternoon and was rushed to the Bandar Baru Bangi Clinic, before being referred to the Serdang Hospital.

“Further examination on the victim found a tear on the victim’s hymen, and a subsequent examination found that the victim’s anus was also torn,” he said in a statement here yesterday.

Ahmad Dzaffir said the post-mortem by the Serdang Hospital’s Pathology Department found that the victim’s death was due to a “Blunt Impact to the Head” whereby the baby’s skull was fractured.

“There were also bruises found on the top left and right sides of the victim’s head,” he said.

KUALA LUMPUR: Family members of victims in three high-profile murder cases today urged Putrajaya not to abolish the death penalty.

The families of deputy public prosecutor Anthony Kevin Morais, cosmetics millionairess Sosilawati Lawiya, and banker Wong Jing Kui shared why they are against abolishing the death penalty at a press conference today.

Erni Dekritawati Yuliana Buhari, the daughter of Sosilawati, said the death sentence must stay.
.
“The punishment (death penalty) must stay because it is unfair to the victims of the families. Can you imagine if this happened to you?
.
Sosilawati and three friends had gone to meet with her lawyer at his farm in Banting. She went to ask him to expedite payment for two post-dated cheques worth RM4 million in proceeds for the sale of her land handled by his legal firm.

Instead, the four met their grisly end in 2010 at the hands of former lawyer N Pathmanabhan and farm workers T Thilaiyalagan and R Kathavarayan, with their bodies burned cremation-style through the use of logs.

Richard Morais, the younger brother of Kevin, recalled how his brother was kidnapped and brought to Subang Jaya where he was murdered and put into a drum in 2015. He was later found covered to the brim in cement.

“They cemented his body; are you going to release these people?”

“I’m the only one who saw him. I couldn’t even make out his body,” he said with tears welling up in his eyes.

“I have never heard of crimes like this where the prosecutor was targeted and killed for doing his job for the government.

“You’ve got to lose a member of your family to murder to understand how we feel,” he said.

Wong Hie Huong, Jing Kui’s sister, said a suspect in the murder of her brother in 2012 in Sibu, Sarawak, is still at large and has Jing Kui’s child.

This is despite Jing Kui’s wife, Ling Hang Tsyr, been sentenced to death last year for abetting her now missing lover in her husband’s death.

Lawyer Christina Teng, who is a spokesman for the families of the murder victims, said many Malaysians are against the move to abolish the death penalty as justice is not seen as having been served.

“We are asking the government to please do proper due diligence,” Teng said at a press conference in Desa Pandan here.
.

Teng, however, acknowledged that there were instances when the death penalty should not have been imposed. She listed instances of entrapment, duress or using drugs for medical needs as examples.
.

Meanwhile, Bernama reported that the family of murdered PKR land activist Bill Kayong is also unhappy with the proposal to do away with the death penalty.

Miri MP Dr Michael Teo Yu Keng said the family had informed him of this, saying it would give the impression that murder was not a serious crime.

“They personally sent me a message about it,” he said at a separate press conference.

Kayong, who was Miri PKR secretary, was shot dead in 2016. On Aug 10, bouncer Mohd Fitri Pauzi was sentenced to death for the crime.

2014: Chan Huan Wei, “A Chinese Response to Dr Mahathir and Raja Petra.”

It was written in 2014…

..

A Chinese response to Dr Mahathir and Raja Petra

zzz chan.jpg

🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴
To Dr Mahathir:

To a lesser extent, Tun Dr Mahathir has a point in asserting that Malays are lazy. For instance, many Chinese contractors only employ Indonesians to do the dirty work of construction. I always wondered why don’t the Chinese contractors employ Malays since they are many which are unemployed. The Chinese contractor told me that the Malays are not willing to work like the Indonesians.

Today, I personally know of an Indonesian contractor who started off as a labourer but now earning more than RM10k a month from renovating houses. He works very hard till late night and 7 days a week. Like a Malay, he is also a Muslim. He looks no different from any other Malay but he is more successful than the typical uneducated Malay.

Why is it so? It is because he behaves like a migrant just like the Chinese and Indians. Back in Indonesia, labour is plenty and cheap. Hence, he decided to come to Malaysia to take risks and work hard to be successful like any other entrepreneurs.

Malays are pampered with benefits and handouts from the government. In Indonesia, they have nothing. If Mahathir is truly serious in waking up the Malays, he should have removed all these rights and benefits exclusively for Malays and make them hungry.

To Raja Petra:

Yes, the Chinese think of money more often than the Malays because we have been brought up that the world do not owe us a living. As what Mahathir said, why can’t the Malays think like the Chinese? If you call me a racist, then the bigger racist than I am is Tun Mahathir for his unfair generalisation of the Malays.

I used to think highly of you (Raja Petra) and enjoyed reading your writings but not anymore. Your tone appeared to have resorted to the tone Ibrahim Ali of Perkasa. You blame the world and everything else for the shortcomings of your own race. You whacked the Jews, the west, the Chinese and what not when you failed instead of looking at your own weaknesses. Poverty is a trap. Poverty is a vicious cycle is due to the fact that your mentality and character is that of a poor man. You appeared to have left the kampung and live in the city but the kampung mentality has not left you.

FYI, many of my Malay friends and brethren echoed my views.

BTW, I have never supported any of those Chinese organisations like Dong Jia Zhong and aspire to be true Malaysian. Unfortunately, people like you that likes to blame your poverty to the migrants or pendatang for taking your wealth away.

Look at Aceh, Indonesia which is probably the most Islamic state and with the least Chinese population in Indonesia. Unfortunately, it is one of the poorest states despite the rich oil reserves. How about the fate of Malays in Southern Thailand? They are poor and marginalised as well. In both Aceh and Southern Thailand, the Malays are poor. Do you blame the Chinese for their fate as well?

I strongly suggest that you divorce your Chinese wife and marry a Malay to make you a true Malay and join Perkasa. Next, make Malaysia like Zimbabwe or Uganda whereby they chased away all the local Indians who owned businesses and just took their assets and properties without any form of compensation. You might want to fantasise along this line of taking away all Chinese businesses and revoke their citizenship as well.

Replace Teh Hong Piow of Public Bank with Ibrahim Ali and Lee Shin Cheng of IOI with Zulklifly Noordin. In that way, you would be so proud and feel wealthy. You should masturbate with this fantasy in mind and dream that Zimbabwe and Uganda would become the richest nations on earth.

Felda: Will Isa Samad be charged for the purchase of the Merdeka Palace Hotel in Kuching?

PETALING JAYA: Former Umno leader Isa Samad is expected to be charged with abuse of power related to an overpriced purchase of a Sarawak hotel when he was chairman of national land agency Felda.

The Straits Times cited sources as saying that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is expected to recommend charges against Isa after completing its probe into Felda’s 2014 purchase of the Merdeka Palace hotel in Kuching, Sarawak.

“The MACC will be submitting the completed investigation papers and its recommendations to the Attorney-General’s Chambers next week. It will then wait for the AGC’s order for the next course of action,” a source told the Singapore daily.

KUALA LUMPUR — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is preparing charges of power abuse against Felda ex-chairman Tan Sri Isa Samad in relation to the inflated purchase price of a hotel in Kuching, Sarawak.

The Straits Times cited sources as saying the commission has concluded its probe into Felda’s 2014 acquisition of the Merdeka Palace Hotel and will recommend charges to the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) next week.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 10 — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is preparing charges of power abuse against Felda ex-chairman Tan Sri Isa Samad in relation to the inflated purchase price of a hotel in Kuching, Sarawak.

The Straits Times cited sources as saying the commission has concluded its probe into Felda’s 2014 acquisition of the Merdeka Palace Hotel and will recommend charges to the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) next week.

“There was insufficient evidence (to charge him) due to limited access before but investigators picked up where they left off when new proof emerged.

“The MACC will be submitting the completed investigation papers and its recommendations to the Attorney General’s Chambers next week. It will then wait for the AGC’s order for the next course of action,” an unnamed source told the Singapore daily.

It also reported that the commission is considering charges under Section 23 of the MACC Act that covers the abuse of one’s office for personal gratification, with Attorney General (AG) Tommy Thomas briefed on the case around three days ago.

4,000 Prudential Insurance Agents in full protest at The Prudential Tower, KL…

Insurance agents protest payment cuts

 Show of force: The agents taking part in the protest in front of the Prudential tower in Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur.
.

KUALA LUMPUR: Some 4,000 Prudential agents nationwide turned up at the Prudential Tower in Jalan Sultan Ismail to protest the 30% slash in bonus and commission.

The protest was organised by Prudential Life Insurance Agency Association Malaysia (PRULIA) as a last resort after a year of fruitless meetings.

PRULIA president Maniraja Chandran said the agents felt the reductions and conditions on them imposed on them since the beginning of the year were unfair.

“As entrepreneurs, agents are not paid any basic salary.

“Our commissions or bonuses were never increased for decades and now to cut the basic commission as well as increasing the target for bonuses is totally unfair,” he said.

Chandran claimed that Prudential was adjusting their sales-based bonus by introducing the Balance Score Card (BLC) which would result in the fixed commission for the agents becoming variable.

The slash in bonuses and commissions is scheduled to be implemented next year.

Sasha Arshad, 47, said she felt disappointed after over a decade of hard work and yet now faced reductions instead of rewards or better commission and bonuses.

“It is not fair for us, especially the junior agents,” she added.

Another agent, Prema Kaur, 60, said the reduction was unnecessary as the new system would affect all the agents equally.

“They should follow how the Singaporeans do it. Hard-working agents should be rewarded with more.

“But whatever we earn, they will hold back the payments until we meet a certain target. It is unfair,” said Prema who has been an agent for 24 years.

In a statement, Prudential Assurance Malaysia Bhd (PAMB) believes the BLC will increase the insurance penetration in Malaysia and is certain to meet the KPIs set by the regulator.

“PAMB is also open to continuing the engagement and discussion,” the company said.

The High Commission of Singapore: ‘The Coverage’ article linking PM Lee to 1MDB is ‘fake news and clearly libellous’…

10 November 2018

SINGAPORE: Facebook has rejected a Singapore government request to remove a post of an online article that the government said was “false and malicious”, prompting its Law Ministry to say the case illustrated the need to introduce legislation to stop fake news.

Singapore’s central bank said on Friday it had filed a police report against an online article by an Australia-based independent blogger about Singapore banks and Malaysia’s scandal-linked 1MDB state fund.

Web access in Singapore to the website of the States Times Review (STR) has been blocked by internet service providers as directed by Singapore’s telecom and media regulator IMDA, which said it had determined the website carried prohibited content.

“IMDA has assessed that the article undermined public confidence in the integrity of the Singapore Government and is objectionable on grounds of public interest,” Infocommm Media Development Authority (IMDA) said in a statement.

STR articles on its Facebook page remained available.

The IMDA asked Facebook to take down a post of the article but “Facebook has indicated that they will not accede to IMDA’s request”, it said in a separate statement on Saturday.

Facebook did not respond to a request for comment.

Singapore’s Ministry of Law said “Facebook has declined to take down a post that is clearly false, defamatory and attacks Singapore, using falsehoods”, which illustrated the need to introduce legislation fighting fake news.

“FB (Facebook) cannot be relied upon to filter falsehoods or protect Singapore from a false information campaign,” it said in a statement.

Singapore’s parliament has been debating measures to tackle the threat of fake news including introducing legislation.

The Straits Times Review was founded and is run by Singaporean political activist Alex Tan, who is based in Australia. It carries articles that are critical of Singapore’s leaders and its ruling People’s Action Party.

STR to shut down

November 9, 2018

zzzstr

The States Times Review website has been blocked under false charges of “fake news” and “criminal defamation” laid by the Singapore dictatorship.

As such, the website will cease and desist considering that it lost a channel to reach Singaporeans.
Thank you for your support over the past 3 years for STR, and for those who has been faithfully following my articles for the 3 years at TRS and 2 years at TR.
The sacrificial of my Singaporean passport is my last gift to my beloved Singapore and Singaporeans.
Hereon, I will also announce that I have decided to stop writing and continue my life in Australia.
This Facebook page will shut down in 2 weeks from now but the website will remain until the General Elections is over. Do take note that this shut down notice is of my own volition, and not pressure from anyone or the dictatorship. I have no intention to impugn my integrity bending forward for a scum government.
It has been an honour serving Singaporeans. Thank you.
Alex Tan

THE States Times Review website will shut down, after being blocked by Singapore under false charges of “fake news” and “criminal defamation”, said its editor.Alex Tan, in a post on the portal today, said he is issuing the shutdown notice voluntarily, and not due to “pressure from anyone or the dictatorship”.

SINGAPORE: Alternative news site States Times Review has refused to take down an article linking Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) corruption scandal.

“States Times Review will refuse to remove the alleged offending article,” it said in a Facebook post at about 6pm on Friday (Nov 9).

In the post, it invited Mr Lee and Singapore government agencies to “file a case with the Australian authorities”.

The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) issued a notice on Friday asking the alternative news website to take down the article by 5pm on Friday. Failing which, the media authority said, it would block access to the site. It also asked Facebook to remove a post linking to the article.

An email letter from IMDA was reproduced by the States Times Review in its Facebook post.

IMDA said in the notice that publication of the letter would be an “aggravating factor” that would warrant further regulatory action from the authority.

The States Times Review website was inaccessible at about 9pm, checks by Channel NewsAsia showed, although the Facebook post on the article in question was still accessible.

A message displayed on the website read: “The website that you are trying to access is unavailable as it contains prohibited material.” Readers were directed to the IMDA’s website for more information on how it regulates content.

Less than an hour later, founder Alex Tan wrote again on Facebook, saying that the website had been “blocked under false charges of ‘fake news’ and ‘criminal defamation’ and that he planned to shut it down. He also said he would “stop writing and continue (his) life in Australia”.
.

Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam said that the article added a “nasty and malicious twist” to bilateral issues that had been made public and contained “absurd allegations”.

He said the Government is taking the incident very seriously and that the police would take action against all involved based on investigations and advice from the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 7 — The Singapore High Commission here has denounced an article linking Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MBD) scandal, published by controversial “social news network” The Coverage.

“The High Commission of the Republic of Singapore in Malaysia would like to categorically state that this article is fake news and clearly libellous,” it said in a brief statement.

The article, titled “Breaking News: Singapore Lee Hsien Loong Becomes 1MDB’s Key Investigation Target — Najib Signed Several Unfair Agreements with Hsien Loong In Exchange for Money Laundering”, was sourced from another blog, States Times Review.

States Times Review describes itself as “formerly a Singapore news media based in Australia” and now “a personal blog in response to Singapore’s latest censorship laws”.

https://sg.news.yahoo.com/singapore-coverage-article-linking-pm-154153894.html

7 November 2018

Excerpts from:

It is believed that Najib Razak signed several unfair agreements with Singapore’s Lee Hsien Loong, like building the Singapore-Malaysia High Speed Rail when the country was in a trillion RM debt and a grossly under-priced water sale agreement, in exchange for Singapore banks’ assistance in money laundering 1MDB’s billions.

If found guilty, Lee Hsien Loong and Singapore may be sanctioned internationally.

At an interview with Malaysia media, the editor of Sarawak Reports, Clare Rewcastle, revealed that Singapore is one of the key investigation targets, alongside Switzerland and United States. The fugitive-turned-heroine writer who has since returned to Malaysia after corrupted former Prime Minister Najib Razak lost the election, said the 1MDB investigation is going to get bigger and that several major government organisations are going to be implicated:

“The big moral of all this is what was going on in Malaysia. A corrupt local politician was being facilitated and assisted by major global institutions and the whole financial system. And that was wrong. We need to address that, so that people like former prime minister Najib Razak, who were getting away with stuff in countries all over the world, should not be assisted by major banks and all the rest…1MDB was not a Malaysian scandal, it was a global scandal. My message is to tell people that the 1MDB saga has not ended. It is going to get bigger.”

Malaysian investigators are now trying to find the secret deals between the two….Prime Ministers of Singapore and Malaysia when Najib was still in power. It is believed that Najib Razak signed several unfair agreements with Singapore’s Lee Hsien Loong, like building the Singapore-Malaysia High Speed Rail when the country was in a trillion RM debt and a grossly under-priced water sale agreement, in exchange for Singapore banks’ assistance in money laundering 1MDB’s billions.

If found guilty, Lee Hsien Loong and Singapore may be sanctioned internationally.

Back when Gani Patail was AG and Musa Aman was Sabah Chief Minister…

9 November 2018

..

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today passed the blame on the failure to charge Musa Aman seven years ago to the Attorney-General’s Chambers, following questions over why the former Sabah chief minister was only now charged with offences allegedly committed more than a decade ago.

The anti-graft body said that in July 2012, it submitted the outcome of its investigations into Musa to the AGC.

“However, the AGC then decided not to pursue with any charges as they were of the view that the investigation was related to political donation,” it said.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad said MACC, and not former AG Abdul Gani Patail, should explain the decision to let off Musa in 2012.
.
MACC said it was a policy of the AGC at that time not to consider political donation as an offence.

“However, MACC reviewed the investigation paper against Musa few months ago upon receiving new information,” it said.
