FZ ordered to pay RM185k for defaming Guan Eng over Merc

Published:     Modified:

 

The High Court in Penang today ordered the now-defunct news portal FZ.com and its managing editor Terence Fernandez to pay a total of RM320,000 to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and businessperson Tan Kok Ping for defamation.

The defamation suit involved an article titled “MACC begins probe on Merc purchase,” written by Fernandez and published by FZ.com on Jan 3, 2014.

The article stated that the commission was allegedly trying to establish a link between the Penang government’s purchase of a silver Mercedes-Benz S300L from Lowe Motors Sdn Bhd, and Tan, who was then believed to have a stake in the company.

However, on the same day, the MACC denied issuing a statement that it had started probing the purchase of the vehicle for Lim.

Justice Abdul Wahab Mohamed ordered FZ Sdn Bhd and Fernandez (photo) to pay RM150,000 to Lim and RM100,000 to Tan in general damages, and RM35,000 each for legal costs.

During the trial, Lim had denied being probed by the MACC, adding that the article painted him as “corrupt, dishonest, untrustworthy and not fit to be a leader”.

He also refuted the alleged “privileged relationship” with Tan, then the head of Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

“The court found the article defamatory as it did not seek the comments from the plaintiffs before it was uploaded online,” Lim’s lawyer N Mureli told reporters outside court.

Guan Eng welcomes MACC probe on Merc

Published:     Modified:

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng continues to battle public queries on his latest purchase of a Mercedes-Benz for official use by welcoming any proposed investigation by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC).

“Whether MACC will eventually investigate or not, full cooperation will be given to the commission as the state government is clean and I have nothing to hide,” said Lim at a press conference today.

“I will not be asking MACC why no investigation was conducted on BN governments who made similar purchases without the 55 percent discount,” he quipped.
.
Lim was responding to a report in news portal FZ.com yesterday, quoting sources that claimed the commission has started a probe on the state’s purchase of the 2012 Mercedez-Benz S300L.

The report alleged that MACC is trying to establish a link between the purchase from Lowe Motors Sdn Bhd and tycoon Tan Kok Ping, who is believed to have a stake in the company.

Thorough probe to be done into cable car system failure

Published:     Modified:

Panorama Langkawi Sdn Bhd, the operator of the Langkawi SkyCab cable car system in Langkawi, will carry out an investigation to determine the failure of the system, which led over 1,000 tourists to be stranded yesterday.

Panorama Langkawi board member Azizan Noordin said while a faulty bearing had been identified as the reason for the system to break down, the probe would involve finding the causes for the faulty parts to ensure there would be no recurrence in the future.

“We will carry out a post-mortem to find out the details leading to the system failure,” Azizan told reporters after receiving the stranded tourists earlier this morning.

At the last count, a total of 1,048 tourists and 78 staff of the cable car company were stranded for about seven hours before being rescued in stages between 9pm last night to just after 12am today.

The incident, which was reported to have started at 5.48pm, was claimed to be the worst ever to affect the cable car system since it was first introduced as Langkawi’s leading man-made tourism product in 2002.

Azizan, who is also the Langkawi Development Authority (Lada) chief executive officer, said the Panorama Langkawi’s technical team was able to mobilise the system manually at about 9pm to enable the first 88 tourists who were stranded inside 16 cable cars to be brought down to the base station.

He said the manual mobilisation only allowed for minimal movements of the cable cars but that was sufficient to bring down some of the tourists while giving an alternative to get the spare part up to the middle station where it was fitted to restore the system.

System restored about 11pm

“The whole system was restored at around 11pm to enable us to start evacuating the rest of the tourists and staff who were stranded,” he said.

Bashed-up female guard gets RM200 compensation, issue settled

February 17, 2018

Police say the matter has been resolved amicably, with both parties coming to a settlement after the guard admitted she provoked the visitor to the condominium.
.

GEORGE TOWN: Police today said the case of a female security guard being bashed up after she barred a visitor from entering a condominium here on Thursday has been resolved amicably, with the guard admitting to having “provoked” the assailants.

Northeast district police chief ACP Anuar Omar said the guard withdrew the police report she had lodged after she and the assailants came to an agreement to settle the matter.

He said the guard had gotten angry and scolded a car driver for refusing to back out from an entrance to the Tanjung Court condominium in Air Itam that was reserved for residents.

“The complainant (guard) admitted to having provoked the suspects when one of them had wanted to enter the condominium,” he said.

“The guard told the driver that he could not enter without an access card. After the driver refused to back out, she got angry and started scolding him.

“Then a few men came over to shove, beat, kick and slap the complainant. She has bruises on her face and arms,” he told reporters today.

Anuar said two suspected assailants were questioned by police and had their statements taken on the night of the incident.

“One of the suspects is a son of the resident of the condominium. He was there to visit his father,” Anuar said.

“After discussions with the guard’s employer, the case was settled in a good way,” he said.

He added that the guard withdrew her report at 1.25am yesterday and was satisfied with receiving a compensation of RM200 from the suspects.

GEORGE TOWN: A video of a female security guard being beaten up by three disgruntled men on the eve of Chinese New Year has gone viral.

It is learnt the victim had refused entry to the assailants because they did not have the access card to enter the apartment she guards, in Bandar Baru Air Itam.

In the 8.30pm incident three visitors were in a car at the guard post trying to gain entry.

A friend of the assailants who came down to help diffuse the situation was then embroiled in an argument with the victim.

Netizen, Jeffrey Chua, who posted the video on Facebook said the visitors vented their frustration on being denied entry and became unruly, showing obscene gestures and shouting profanities at the victim.

Jeffrey who is also believed to be a resident at the apartment said the men then proceeded to assault the victim.

The female guard was pushed to the ground and then slapped by two men.

Residents who witnessed the incident intervened and managed to diffuse the row.

The Ijok land issue: Did Rahman Dahlan and UMNO get egg on their faces?

 Selangor strategic communications director Yin Shao Loong, “The two previous court decisions favoured the state administration, that was led by Khalid. But the state was still required to pay hundreds of millions of ringgit as compensation to the two companies and the bank that granted them the loans.” 

https://wordpress.com/post/weehingthong.org/109952

Ijok land: Umno caught on back foot over settlement, says Azmin’s aide

PETALING JAYA: The Selangor government says Umno is now in “panic” mode over the Ijok land issue now that it has been revealed that Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali had solved the long-standing matter that he inherited from the previous administration.

Selangor strategic communications director Yin Shao Loong claimed Azmin’s decisive action had solved the Ijok land settlers’ 18-year dispute with the state government.

“The dispute started when Selangor was under the administration of Umno/BN and the settlers had to wait 18 years for justice.

“Azmin’s swift action helped to solve their woes, which is in line with the social justice principles and people-centric stance by the state government,” Yin said in a statement today.

The land in Ijok was initially given to a group of settlers in the state in 1998 by the then BN state government.

The settlers then agreed to allow two companies, Mujur Zaman Sdn Bhd and LBCN Development Sdn Bhd, to develop the land in exchange for compensation and housing.

It was reported in 2015 that ECO World Development Group Bhd bought a 889.5ha parcel of land in the northwestern Klang Valley corridor for RM1.18 billion to develop three property projects, worth an estimated RM15 billion in gross development value.

“The dispute which Azmin inherited was settled by selling the land to a qualified developer for RM1.18 billion, which allowed the settlers to receive compensation and their houses,” Yin said.

He added that by settling the disputes, Azmin proved to have looked after the welfare of the settlers when announcing that each would receive RM180,000 in cash and houses, now worth at least RM400,000.

Yesterday, Barisan Nasional (BN) strategic communications director Abdul Rahman Dahlan had challenged Azmin to answer lingering questions on the Ijok land deal.

Among the questions was why Azmin withdrew a court case that was pending before it was mentioned in the Federal Court and why he allowed two companies, Mujur Zaman Sdn Bhd and LBCN Development Sdn Bhd, to sell the land to a third party.

“Rahman’s questioning of the matter shows the leader is shallow in thinking and does not understand the background of the issue,” Yin said.

He also said that Azmin’s decisive action in solving the Ijok land issue proved how former Selangor menteri besar Khalid Ibrahim had taken “risks” in his actions on the same.

“The two previous court decisions favoured the state administration, that was led by Khalid. But the state was still required to pay hundreds of millions of ringgit as compensation to the two companies and the bank that granted them the loans.

“This shows that Khalid’s action came with high risk as it would affect the state’s finances,” Yin said.

Documents related to Ijok land issues now with MACC: Azmin

SHAH ALAM: The Selangor government has handed over all documents related to the land issues in Ijok to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali…

He said the documents were handed over to the MACC a few months ago following reports lodged by several non-governmental organisations demanding for investigations to be carried out into the issues.

“The state government has given its full cooperation. Now let’s wait for the investigation findings,” he told reporters here today.

Mohamed Azmin said this in response to Barisan Nasional (BN) Strategic Communication director Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan’s remark yesterday, urging the menteri besar to explain why the state government “hastily” returned the disputed land worth RM1.18 billion in Ijok to two housing developers.

Abdul Rahman said the action raised questions because both the High Court and Court of Appeal had, in 2013 and 2014 respectively, ruled that the land belonged to the Selangor government. — Bernama

Khalid calls for explanation over Ijok land deal, Azmin denies allegations
.

SHAH ALAM: Former Selangor mentri besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim (pic) has called for an investigation into the land deal in Ijok involving two developers and the state government.

“Why was the land that was seized by the state government when I was mentri besar, returned, and then sold to another party?” asked Khalid in a statement on Thursday (Feb 15).

His statement follows Barisan Nasional strategic communications director Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan’s press conference on the matter on Wednesday (Feb 14).

Rahman had said that current Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali has to explain why the seized land was returned to the companies they were seized from.

Both the companies had sued the Selangor state government when Khalid had seized the land from them.

However, both the High Court and Court of Appeal had held in favour of the defendant.

The case was still pending at the Federal Court with Azmin filing a settlement agreement in May 2016 stating the Selangor government and the two companies had reached an agreement to annul the case.

When contacted, Azmin said these were unfounded allegations.

RM1.18 bil land sale: Rahman slams Azmin over ‘middleman’ companies

CYBERJAYA: Barisan Nasional strategic communications director Abdul Rahman Dahlan has challenged Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali to answer lingering questions on the Ijok land deal.

The land in Ijok was initially given to a group of settlers in the state in 1998.

The settlers then agreed to allow a few companies, including Mujur Zaman Sdn Bhd and LBCN Development Sdn Bhd, to develop the land in exchange for compensation and housing.

The companies were then allowed by Azmin to sell the land to a public company for RM1.18 billion.

Rahman said the settlers only got their compensation a few days ago when Azmin announced that the state government had paid all 980 settlers RM180,000 and given them a house worth RM250,000 each.

Rahman, who is also a minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, questioned why Azmin did not wait for the case to be heard in the Federal Court and instead withdrew the case although it would have favoured the state government.

“It was a stupid thing to do. Did the two companies force Azmin to allow them to sell the land?

“Azmin should know that the previous decisions from the High Court and Court of Appeal had favoured the state and the then menteri besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim. He, too, would have stood a good chance of winning the case in the Federal Court.

“What is his justification to hand over the land worth RM1.18 billion to the companies when the case was not even heard at the Federal Court yet? What was the rush to withdraw the case?

“If Azmin’s intention was to settle the compensation claims by the settlers, why didn’t he sell the land to a public company and use the RM1.18 billion to settle their compensation claims?

“Just a few days ago, Azmin announced payment of RM421 million to the 980 settlers. What happened to the balance of RM758.6 million?” he asked during a press conference here today.

Rahman also said MACC was already conducting an investigation into the matter as many reports had been lodged.

However, he declined to give further details.

“You can ask the details from MACC.”

Ministry apologises for chicken in CNY ad


THE Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry has apologised for a Chinese New Year advertisement featuring the wrong zodiac animal, which it said was due to a “technical problem”.

The ministry’s full-page advertisement conveying festive greetings appeared in major newspapers today. In it, a rooster is depicted crowing “Wang! Wang!”. The Chinese community is welcoming the Year of the Dog.

“KPDNKK would like to apologise for the Chinese New Year advertisement. It was due to a technical mistake,” the ministry said on Facebook.

It is unclear how the ministry had confused a chicken with a dog, and no explanation was offered. – February 15, 2018.

Ministry’s CNY ad features ‘barking’ rooster

Published:     Modified:

According to the Chinese Zodiac calendar, this Chinese New Year ushers in the Year of the Dog replacing the previous Year of the Rooster.

However, an advertisement by the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK) appears to have merged both animals.

The full-page advertisement published in Sin Chew Daily featured a rooster crowing or rather barking, “Wang! Wang!

The word “wang” is used in numerous Chinese New Year advertisements this year to depict a dog barking but its original meaning is prosperity.

The advertisement also carried a message, which read: “We welcome a prosperous year of the dog. We wholeheartedly wish people from all walks of life a happy lunar new year.”

It is unclear why the ministry opted for a rooster instead of a dog but it could be due to religious sensitivity as the latter is considered “unclean” in Islam.

KUALA LUMPUR: Puan Sri Faridah Begum KA Abdul Kader, the wife of Attorney General Tan Sri Apandi Ali, has lodged a police report over an article penned by blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin.

She lodged the report on Tuesday (Feb 13) at the Desa Sri Hartamas police station.

“I am lodging a police report based on an article that Raja Petra Kamaruddin wrote on me. Any more than that I can’t say; I am leaving the matter to the police,” she was quoted as saying.

Raja Petra, through the Malaysia Today portal, had written a series of articles in which he had alleged that Apandi was being influenced by outsiders in his decision-making process.

Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur CID chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Rusdi Mohd Isa said police were investigating the report. He said police did not discount the possibility of recording statements from witnesses if the need arose.

He said the case was also being handled by the Classified Criminal Investigation Unit of Bukit Aman under Section 500 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Meanwhile, Pertubuhan Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) yesterday submitted 40 additional documents to facilitate police investigations into the finances of news portal The Malaysian Insight (TMI).

Faridah’s brother Jahabar Sadiq is TMI’s chief executive officer and editor.

I did not insult any religion or race in music video, says Namewee


.

CONTROVERSIAL rapper Namewee has denied insulting Islam in his latest music video, Like a Dog, which was released to coincide with the Chinese New Year celebration.

The rapper said the music video only served entertainment purposes, and that he had no intention of disrespecting any religion or race.

“Previously, I released a rooster-themed song for Chinese New Year and other songs that contained humorous elements to celebrate Chinese New Year.

“It was never my intention to insult any religion or race,” he said in a video posted on his Facebook and YouTube accounts today in response to Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s comments yesterday.

In the video, Namewee sings that dogs in different countries have different barks, and that while American dogs go “woof woof” and Indonesian dogs go “bow wow”, Malaysian dogs go “mari mari wang wang (come come money money)”.

He is accompanied by background dancers in dog masks who move provocatively and scatter money to the beat of the music.
.
In his defence, Namewee said the music video was shot by the side of a main road in Putrajaya.

“The scene that was featured in the music video was shot by a main road in Putrajaya.

“The building in the background, which is within 1km, is the prime minister’s office,” he said, adding that no places of worship were featured in the video.

He also said there were many productions, including international films, that featured Malaysia’s administrative capital.

Namewee, whose real name is Wee Peng Chee, urged the media not to report such fake news as it could cause confusion among the public and to stop accusing him of insulting religions.

“I want the media that report inaccurate news to explain the truth to the public.

He also denied that he represented, was controlled by or is involved with any political party.

“If there is any comment made by me that is political, it is just my own opinion as a Malaysian citizen.” – February 17, 2018.

The video is shot against the backdrop of the Perdana Putra Building, where the Prime Minister’s office is located.

“The person has escaped from many (lawful) actions before.

“This is not a warning. I just want to say that actions will be taken, because when that person managed to escape the law previously, it does not mean that person can escape forever,” Zahid said, referring to Namewee.

Zahid also expressed worry that “lone wolves” or any individual organisations might take laws into their own hands, in reacting to provocative actions.

“Don’t blame others then, because it is that person who asked for it, upon himself,” he added.

MCA accuses Kit Siang of diverting attention with CNY video jibe

MCA has accused Lim Kit Siang of attempting to divert attention from the Penang undersea tunnel project and Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin’s role in the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) project.

“Kit Siang is at it again. No wonder they say ‘a leopard doesn’t change its spots’,” said party publicity spokesperson Ti Lian Ker.

“Unlike Kit Siang who is conceited and habitually puts MCA leaders down, we in MCA always wished him well and a speedy recovery from his recent surgery,” he added in a statement.

He was responding to the veteran politician’s statement that Chinese New Year greeting videos by DAP leaders have garnered much more views than those featuring MCA’s top leadership.

Ti said Kit Siang should focus on issues which concern the people such as the Penang tunnel and questioned the silence of other highly vocal DAP leaders on the issue.

MCA confident of winning big in 14GE but MCA Leadership’s Chinese New Year video unable to get the viewership of Teresa Kok’s fifth Chinese New Year video

The MCA leadership is confident of winning big in the forthcoming 14th General Election, which may be held after the Chinese New Year but definitely within the 75-day window from March to mid-May.

Whether the MCA will win big in 14GE will be known on Polling Day, but what is immediately known is that the MCA leadership’s Chinese New Year video featuring the MCA President, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, Deputy President Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong and MCA Secretary-General Datuk Ong Ka Chuan – all three Cabinet Ministers – as well as the entire MCA national leadership is unable to garner the viewership of DAP Deputy Secretary-General and MP for Seputeh Teresa Kok’s fifth annual Chinese New Year video.

As at 1 pm today, Kok’s latest CNY video (available on YouTube) netted 53,411 views in 25 hours since it was posted at 12.05 p.m. on Feb. 14; while the MCA leadership’s CNY video netted 45,00 views after 41 hours after it was posted on FaceBook on Feb. 13 at 7.10 pm.

Similar trend in viewership is also the case with regard to the Chinese New Year video of DAP Secretary-General and Penang Chief Minister, Lim Guan Eng and the MCA President and Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

In fact, the margin has become wider.

I had said that as at 8 am yesterday (14th February 2018), the respective responses garnered for Guan Eng and Liow’s CNY videos were as follows:

Guan Eng’s CNY video (up for 60 hours) – Views 399k; Reactions: 21k (19k Like, 1.5k Love); Share: 9624. (Posted at 8 pm on Feb. 11.)

Tiong Lai’s CNY video (93 hours) – Views 33k; Reactions: 1.1k (966 Like, 57 Love); Share: 493. (Posted at 10.35 am on Feb.10).

In the last 30 hours, there is a greater disparity in the viewership for the CNY videos between the DAP Secretary-General and MCA President, as follows:

Guan Eng’s CNY video (up 89 hours) – Views 427k; Reactions 22k (20 Like, 1.6k Love); Share: 10 k.

Tiong Lai’s CNY video (up 122 hours) – Views 36k; Reactions: 1.1k (1k Like, 59 Love); Share 527.

MCA will be celebrating its 69th anniversary on 27th February 2018. It should not forget “celebrating” a new history achieved by the MCA, which was never attained by other MCA leaderships before in nearly seven decades of MCA history!

For the first time, all the three most important leaders of MCA depend on UMNO’s votes to get elected as MP and then to become a Minister.

In Bentong, the parliamentary constituency of the MCA President and Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, the single biggest ethnic bloc of voters are the 46.1% Malay voters, as Chinese voters represent 42.4%, Indians 9.0% and Others 2.5%.

In Ayer Hitam, the parliamentary constituency of MCA Deputy President and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong, the largest ethnic group of voters are the 57.6% Malay voters, with the Chinese 38.3%; Indians 3.9% and Others 0.2%.

In Tanjong Malim, the parliamentary constituency of the MCA Secretary-General and Second Minister for Trade and Industry, Datuk Ong Ka Chuan, the largest ethnic group of voters are again the Malays 55.4% with Chinese 25.8%, Indians 13.2% and Orang Asli 5.6%.

In fact, in Malay voters represent the largest ethnic group in six of the seven parliamentary constituencies won by MCA in the 13th General Election.

Is the MCA representing the Chinese in Barisan Nasional or is it representing UMNO to the Malaysian Chinese? Or is MCA representing all Malaysians, regardless of race or religion?
