KUALA LUMPUR, May 21 — Five police officers including an inspector has been arrested for robbing a money changer of RM200,000, while an assistant superintendent (ASP) from Bukit Aman, believed to be the mastermind is still at large.

A source close to the investigation told Malay Mail that police are also looking for three officers from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) to assist investigations.

The five policemen detained had alleged that they had received “information’” from the ASP and the three BNM officers to rob the victim a manager at a money changer outlet in Jalan Silang here.

The incident unfolded when nine men including the five policemen arrived at the money changer outlet on Sunday around 4pm.

The suspects introduced themselves as policemen from Bukit Aman’s commercial crime department.

“They accused the victim of running a money changer outlet without a proper license and immediately handcuffed him,” said the source, who wished to remain anonymous.

The source said the suspects then “seized” mobile phones belonging to the victim and his four employees and took RM4000 petty cash while raiding the outlet.

“One of the policemen then told the victim that if he wants to ‘solve’ this, he just need to pay the group RM200,000.

“The victim then told his driver to go to his home and bring RM200,000 cash, while the policemen waited at a bus stop in front Kotaraya Complex,” the source said.

After gathering the cash the victim then proceeded to a bus stop in front of the complex where he handed over the RM200,000 to the policemen.

The victim lodged a police report over the matter and in his police report said that he suspects one of the policemen was armed with a gun.

The police source said an investigation was conducted at the premise intruded by the suspects and investigators retrieved several closed-circuit television (CCTV) recording.

“Based on the CCTV footage police managed to identify the five policemen and they were subsequently arrested,” the source said.

The five policemen were an inspector from PJ police headquarters attached with narcotics department, a corporal and two lance corporal from Seapark police station and another corporal from Jalan Bandar traffic police.

The police have yet to issue an official statement over the arrests.

Lim Kit Siang accepts Najib Razak’s challenge to a debate. Topic: How Malaysia became a global kleptocracy and how we can become a leading nation of integrity.

Lim Kit Siang: “Malu Apa Bossku” campaign violates Rukunegaru…

21 May 2019

..

PETALING JAYA: Lim Kit Siang has welcomed a debate dare from Najib Razak, but not before launching a volley of attacks on the former prime minister, labelling him a “pathological liar” and accusing him of deflecting questions on the 1MDB scandal.

“Probably, the best subject for debate is: ‘How Malaysia became a global kleptocracy and how we can become a leading nation of integrity’,” the veteran DAP leader said, responding to Najib’s remarks that he is willing to have a freestyle “anything goes” debate with Lim.

“The ball is in Najib’s court,” Lim added.

Let’s debate on kleptocracy, Kit Siang accepts Najib’s debate dare

..

KUALA LUMPUR: Najib Razak says he is willing to have a freestyle “anything goes” debate with his most fervent critic, Lim Kit Siang, after the DAP supremo resurfaced with a recent string of public attacks.

In an interview with FMT at his office here, the former prime minister said: “I answered Lim every time he made a statement, to the point of giving him the title of ‘Minister of Najib Affairs’ in one posting. So I think it is better to debate with Lim.”

Najib has often said that Lim is “obsessed” with him, but “I am willing to debate with him on issues so that we can highlight our stand on these issues and allow the people to judge for themselves”.

Najib also said Lim had quietened down after he was called “Minister of Najib Affairs”.

In his latest attack on Najib, the veteran DAP politician claimed that Najib’s “Malu Apa Bossku” slogan was against the Rukunegara as it tried to block reforms by the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government.

“In actual fact, the ‘Malu Apa Bossku’ campaign violates the fifth principle of Rukunegara and ‘Morality and Good Behaviour’, a challenge to the National Anti-Corruption Plan 2019-2023 and obstacle to the national mission to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy into a leading nation of integrity,” Lim had said.

However, Najib said “Malu Apa Bossku” was not a campaign as it is commonly portrayed but a natural response from the youth.

“They came up with the catchphrase, they made their own T-shirt designs and graphics. It is is something which comes from their hearts,” the former leader said.

He said the catchphrase “will live so long as the youth like it”.

“When they no longer do, it will cease to exist. But thankfully, the response so far has exceeded expectations.

“However, I must stress that when people say ‘Bossku’, it is not me that is the boss but the people. The people are the boss.”

On when he would debate with Lim, Najib said he was prepared anytime.

But he hoped Lim would understand that his schedule was constrained by his ongoing court cases.

“The PH government does not want me to be too free. But I will make time for Lim if he is willing to debate.

“It can be a freestyle debate, so to speak. He can ask me anything, even 1MDB. And I can ask him anything. In the spirit of a healthy democracy, he should take up the challenge.”

He said he was certain that Lim could make time for a debate as he does not hold any Cabinet position.

“If he is free enough to write multiple statements every day, he should certainly be free to debate.”

Najib to Kit Siang: Enough sniping, let’s have a debate

The wonderful Malacca River is no longer wonderful but black and foul-smelling…

21 May 2019

..

MALACCA: The discolouration, foul-smell and dead fish in Malacca River are not caused by pollution, but are believed to be due to the ocean current, according to state Housing, Local Government, Environment and Green Technology Committee chairman Datuk Tey Kok Kiew.

He said the preliminary report by the Department of Environment (DOE) revealed that the cause was not due to effluent discharges or release of industrial waste.

Tey said only the Tilapia species was affected.

“If there was really a pollution, the dead fish should be seen near the spot where the effluent was discharged and all aquatic life will be affected, not just certain fish.

“The dead fish could only be found seven kilometres from the river estuary to Melaka Sentral and not other areas,” he told a press conference here today. – Bernama

MELAKA RIVER TURNS BLACK, SMELLY, WITH DEAD FISH, DUE TO SUSPECTED POLLUTION

MELAKA, May 20 : Pollution has caused the water in Melaka River to turn black and foul-smelling, with dead fish, since yesterday, especially in  Taman Rempah here.

Melaka Health and Anti-Drugs Exco, Low Chee Leong said the pollution was detected to be from the Batu Hampar Dam in Batu Berendam here which has been instructed to be shut down immediately closed to prevent the situation getting worse.

“We worry that the pollution will get worse and do not want a repeat of the chemical pollution in Sungai Kim Kim, Pasir Gudang, Johor,” Low, who is also Kota Laksamana state assemblyman, said.

“We have asked the Department of Environment (DOE) and the Health Department to take immediate action and get a sample of the contaminated river water and the dead fish for analysis to find out the cause of pollution and level of seriousness,” he said in a press conference at the Melaka River Cruise Jetty in Taman Rempah here today.

Also present was the chief executive officer of the Melaka River and Coastal Development Corporation (PPSPM), Azlan Abidin.

According to Azlan, at midnight tonight, PPSPM will flush the water by opening the dam at the Melaka River mouth and ensure that the Batu Hampar Dam is closed so that the polluted river water will flow out to sea.

He said since this morning, about 60 PPSPM have been involved in cleaning the dam of the dead fish and rubbish.

MELAKA: Pollution has caused the water in Melaka River to turn black and foul-smelling, with dead fish, since yesterday, especially in Taman Rempah.

The Batu Hampar Dam in Batu Berendam has been shut down immediately and will be flushed from midnight to allow the river water to flow out to sea.

Melaka state executive councillor for health, Low Chee Leong, said: “We worry that the pollution will get worse and do not want a repeat of the chemical pollution in Sungai Kim Kim, Pasir Gudang, Johor.

“We have asked the Department of the Environment and the Health Department to take immediate action and get a sample of the contaminated river water and the dead fish for analysis to find out the cause of pollution and level of seriousness.”
.

“According to the initial information from PPSPM technical staff, the pollution water was from Batu Hampar and they are now outside the area to determine the source (of pollution). In Malim district too, the water has turned black like here and samples have been taken to be sent to the DOE,” he said.

Azlan said the PPSPM has received complaints from the public, including passengers on the Melaka River Cruise, of the foul smell and change in colour of the Melaka River water.

Bought and paid for, all of RM300 million, but where are the 6 helicopters?

21 May 2019

PETALING JAYA: Former defence minister Hishammuddin Hussein says he has nothing to hide if the authorities want to question him over the purchase of military assets during his tenure, following revelations that six US-made helicopters were never delivered despite a deal to acquire them for RM300 million.

Hishammuddin told FMT that the matter should be investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

“I have nothing to hide,” the Sembrong MP added.

He was responding to FMT’s report yesterday on a deal by the previous administration to buy six MD530G light scout helicopters manufactured by MD Helicopters of the US.

Let MACC investigate, says Hishammuddin on heli purchase

20 May 2019

..

A contract was signed in November 2016, in which the helicopters were to be delivered in two batches with the second batch scheduled to arrive by last year.

As per the contract, Company A was paid 35% of the contract value, amounting to some RM113 million.

RM300 million for US-made helicopters, bought through dubious firm and never delivered

zhel12.jpg

KUALA LUMPUR: Military helicopters bought during the previous administration for over RM300 million have yet to be delivered to the Royal Malaysian Army, a source close to investigations into allegations of corruption and mismanagement in the purchase of defence assets told FMT.

It is understood that six MD530G light scout attack helicopters, manufactured by MD Helicopters of US aerospace giant McDonnell Douglas, were ordered in 2016 by the defence ministry (Mindef) then headed by Hishammuddin Hussein.

The helicopters, better known as “Little Birds”, had reportedly impressed Mindef officials during a demonstration at the 2015 Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace (Lima) exhibition.

But an investigation into the deal has revealed more startling details, including the fact that the Malaysian army never took delivery of the helicopters.

“It was found that the helicopter which performed at Lima 2015 wasn’t really an MD530G but another variant, the N369FF,” the source told FMT.
.

FMT now understands that after Lima 2015, a local company with strong ties to “a very senior” Mindef official (“Company A”), which was the appointed agent in Malaysia for MD Helicopters, had made a proposal to Mindef to acquire the six MD530G.

The proposal was then submitted to former prime minister and finance minister Najib Razak for approval.

It is understood that the finance ministry gave the green light for the acquisition from Company A through direct negotiations.

It is also learnt that the Economic Planning Unit exempted the deal from undergoing value management checks.

A contract was signed in November 2016, in which the helicopters were to be delivered in two batches with the second batch scheduled to arrive by last year.

As per the contract, Company A was paid 35% of the contract value, amounting to some RM113 million.

“The main issue is that no real due diligence was done with the government,” said the source, adding that the approval was given just about four months after submission of the proposal.
.

There were also concerns among the top brass of the Malaysian Air Force about the ability of the MD530G.

“One complaint was that it did not have a combat-proven record,” a retired air force official told FMT.
.

In 2015, Company A sent a proposal to Hishammuddin worth US$60 million.

“Just three months later, it submitted another proposal, this time over US$70 million,” the source told FMT.

“In just three months, the price inexplicably went up by over 20%.”

A separate investigation into Company A found that it was financially weak before the deal was struck, having suffered losses in 2015 and 2016.

The deal is also believed to have been the first contract for the company, which had no experience in implementing a multi-million ringgit agreement.

“It only owned computers, furniture and office supplies valued at under RM50,000. Mindef could have gone directly to MD Helicopters and saved millions in taxpayers’ money.”

FMT is contacting Hishammuddin for a response.

Guan Eng: AG to sue to compel NFCorp to cough up over RM250m in outstanding debt to govt

KUALA LUMPUR, May 20 — The attorney general (AG) will be mounting a lawsuit to compel the National Feedlot Corporation Sdn Bhd (NFCorp) to cough up RM253,618,455.03 which it owes the federal government, Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said today.

Details of this latest development, however, will only be made available at a later date.

Govt to seek full repayment of RM250 million loan to NFCorp

PETALING JAYA: The government has decided to seek full repayment of the RM250 million loan given to National Feedlot Corporation Sdn Bhd (NFCorp) in 2008, along with interest and late interest charges as of April 30 this year.

The finance ministry said in a statement today that the total outstanding amount owed by NFCorp is RM253,618,455.03.

“From this sum, RM110,840,854.28 is the amount due for repayment to the federal government as of April 30, 2019, consisting of loan principal arrears of RM81,987,629.65, loan interest of RM22,967,131.55 and late interest charges of RM5,886,093.08,” Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said.

According to the ministry, NFCorp received the RM250 million loan from the government on Jan 9, 2008 at an interest rate of 2% with a loan period of 20 years and grace period of three years.

The loan was secured by a debenture signed alongside the loan agreement on Dec 6, 2007.

Lim said based on the due diligence report by accounting firm PwC, the board of directors from Dec 6 that year to Dec 31, 2011, consisted of Mohamad Salleh Ismail and his children, Izran Salleh, Izmir Salleh and Izzana Salleh as well as representatives from the federal and state governments.

“However, the latest SSM search conducted as of May 17, 2019 only listed Salleh Ismail as the sole director of NFCorp, and two company secretaries,” he said.

He said a notice of declaration of event of default was issued to NFCorp on Sept 4, 2014, in accordance with Clause 14 of the loan agreement between the company and the federal government.

“The finance ministry has decided to seek full repayment of the loan to NFCorp, and this matter was referred to the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) on Aug 29, 2018 for further action.”

He added that the AGC is looking into the matter and will announce any developments when available.

In Johor, a tale of two mosques, two political parties and the DAP MP dubbed ‘anjing’.

20 May 2019

..

The chairperson of Masjid Jamek Bandar Paloh, Hassan Sarkon said today that he would assume full responsibility for the incident where a banner with a political party logo was put up at the mosque.

Hassan said he became only aware of the banner after it was put up for an event.

“Maybe some mosque committee members got excited and put up the banner. However, I as the chairman who gave permission for the event to be held, take full responsibility over the matter,” he told Bernama when contacted.

He said the event was not politically motivated and it was a community programme.

“No speech was given during the event, there was only the handing over of contributions to the needy,” he added.

This morning, a woman had uploaded several photos in her Facebook account showing the Sembrong Wanita Umno organising a programme at the mosque.

The Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar had recently banned the administration of mosques and surau from providing politicians with a platform for their political activities at mosques.

This came after Labis MP Pang Hok Liong was pictured giving a speech at Majlis Tenang Steysen in Labis on May 10.

Pang told Malaysiakini that he did not raise political issues, but was merely distributing aid to mosques and surau in conjunction with the month of Ramadan.

Mosque visit: Labis MP files a police report over Facebook post

Published: 

Labis MP Pang Hok Liong today filed a police report over a purported slanderous Facebook posting in relation to his visit at the Jamek Tenang Stesen mosque on Friday.

In his police report, Pang said that a Facebook page called Ops Johor had uploaded a post with the caption ‘Adun Tenang; Bawak Masuk Anjing Dalam Masjid’ (Tenang assemblyperson brought a dog into the mosque).

“I am upset because I was just fulfilling my obligation as a responsible MP in my area.

“I was invited to hand out my contributions to the mosques and suraus in the area in conjunction with the fasting month,” he said.

Pang said that the slander had stirred a racial issue which had caused unease to the public.

Lim Kit Siang: “Malu Apa Bossku” campaign violates Rukunegaru…

19 May 2019

..

 

“Malu Apa Bossku” campaign violates Rukunegara, a challenge to National Anti-Corruption Plan 2019-2023 and obstacle to the national mission to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy into a leading nation of integrity

For the past several months before the Sandakan by-election on May 11, former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s highly-funded cybertroopers had been hammering hard on one theme with the siren song – enough had been said about the 1MDB scandal and Najib’s kleptocracy, the 14th General Election is over and let the courts decide whether Najib was guilty of corruption or not, but for now, the ball is in Pakatan Harapan’s court and let’s hear what the PH government had achieved to lower the cost of living and bring about institutional reforms.

In January this year, Najib’s cybertroopers invented the shameless “Malu Apa Bossku” campaign which seemed to have taken certain sections of the population by storm, which enabled the UMNO-PAS axis, with backroom support by MCA and MIC in Peninsular Malaysia and PBS and other opposition parties in Sabah and the GPS in Sarawak, to score triple victories in the Cameroln Highlands, Semenyih and Ratu by-elections.

The phenomenon of the “Malu Apa Bossku” campaign also encouraged the Opposition MPs in Parliament to block the passage of the Constitutional Amendment Bill on Article 1(2) of the Malaysian Constitution as an important first step to implement one of the five “pillar-promies” of the Pakatan Harapan’s 14th General Election pledge to “return Sabah and Sarawak to the status accorded in Malaysia Agreement 1963”.

But the storm of success of the “Malu Apa Bossku” campaign could only go on a rampage for five months, for it met its Waterloo in the Sandakan by-election on May 11 and only time will tell whether the “Malu Apa Bossku” campaign can find a new second life after being pulverised in Sandakan.

One important lesson for all Malaysians from the Sandakan by-election is never to forget the 1MDB scandal or Najib’s kleptocracy if Malaysia is ever to become a nation of integrity and excellence respected by the world.

In actual fact, the “Malu Apa Bossku” campaign violates the fifth principle of Rukunegara and “Morality and Good Behaviour”, a challenge to the National Anti-Corruption Plan 2019-2023 and obstacle to the national mission to transform Malaysia from a global kleptocracy into a leading nation of integrity

The expose of the 1MDB scandal and the hauling of Najib, his wife Rosmah Mansor, his Ministers like Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, UMNO bigwigs like former Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman and Tan Sri Isa Samad and Najib’s right-hand men like Arul Kanda Kandasamy, Tan Sri Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah and Tan Sri Muhammad Shafie Abdullah represent a clear notice to the world that Malaysia is serious about wiping out the infamy, ignominy and iniquity of a global kleptocracy but inadequate to establish Malaysia as a model nation of integrity – to be included in the Top 20 List of countries in the annual Transparency International Corruption Perception Indices.

Malaysia had ranked from 23 to 62 in 23-year series of annual Transparency International Corruption Perception Indices from 1995 to 2018 (Malaysia’s ranking was No. 61 with a score of 49 out of 100 for 2018).

Dare we dream and aim to be listed in the Top Twenty of the Transparency International Corruption Perception Index in the next decade?

Who is ‘Ammu’, the 47 year-old woman, who refutes S Kesavan’s “allegations”?

19 May 2019

..

The former Sungai Siput PKR treasurer who lodged a police report against MP S Kesavan for alleged sexual harassment has denied his counterclaim that she harboured feelings for him.

The 47-year-old, only wishing to be known as ‘Ammu’, also denied Kesavan’s claims – contained in his police report against her – that she bombarded him with daily phone calls and tried to ruin his marriage.

“His statements are false and I challenge him to answer my three questions,” she told Malaysiakini when met in Puchong yesterday, adding that ‘Ammu’ was the nickname given to her by the Sungai Siput lawmaker.

On Kesavan saying that she had volunteered to assist him in last year’s general election, Ammu said she has proof to show that he was the one who requested her help.

“My first question to him: if it is true that I had offered myself as a volunteer, why did he have to come and look for me in Puchong?

“He came and stayed at Hotel Sri Puchong just to see me,” she said, adding that they did not meet as she was feeling unwell.

“Instead my husband and another of our mutual contacts went to see him. So here, I challenge him to deny that he came to Puchong to see me.”

Asked why Kesavan was so eager to seek her help, Ammu said that he told her it was because she is a lawyer.

Police reports

Kesavan lodged a police report against Ammu on May 4, accusing her of causing him mental torture and trauma after being flooded with phone calls.

About two weeks later, Ammu lodged her own report accusing Kesavan of sexual harassment, which he denied yesterday.

She also lodged a second report against another unidentified MIC leader, whom she accused of threatening her.

Responding to Kesavan’s claims of alleged mental torture, Ammu questioned his refusal to accept her resignation as Sungai Siput PKR treasurer.

“Kesavan said I had threatened him to get positions and other things. For the record, during the branch meeting on Dec 27 last year, Kesavan nominated my name as treasurer and this is recorded in the minutes.

“Why did Kesavan nominate me if, as he said yesterday, he was already suspicious of my actions since September?” she said, adding that her attempted resignation from the post two days later, on Dec 29, was rejected by the lawmaker.

According to Ammu, Kesavan replied to her resignation letter sent to him via WhatsApp by saying, “Don’t do this Ammu, please be patient.” Malaysiakini sighted the message from Kesavan on Ammu’s phone.

“If it is true he could not stand my threats or interferences, why did he not accept my resignation letter?” she questioned, adding that her resignation as Sungai Siput PKR treasurer after just two days was due to harassment from Kesavan.

Following her attempt to resign, Ammu said Kesavan once again came to Puchong to meet her and her husband.

“When we met, he apologised for his actions and asked me to continue working for him, as he promised to not harass me in any way,” she said.

Although Kesavan did not keep his promise, Ammu, who also used to serve as the lawmaker’s assistant, said she remained in the post due to numerous calls for help from Sungai Siput voters.

“But I could not put up with his actions any longer, and on April 30 I tendered my resignation as his assistant.

“Once again, he rejected it,” she said, adding that there was no turning back this time, as she refused to hear any more of Kesavan’s explanations.

“When my husband called Kesavan to inquire about my resignation letter, someone from MIC picked up instead and started hurling profanities at me,” she claimed.

Ammu said she was informed on May 8 that Kesavan had lodged a police report against her.

“Let the police investigate. None of what is contained in my report is slander,” she insisted.

In her police report, Ammu alleged that Kesavan often made video calls to her, showed her excerpts from the ancient Indian text Kamasutra, as well as pornographic images.

KUALA LUMPUR, May 19 — A man, with the “Datuk Seri” title, wanted in connection with an attack at an entertainment premises in Jalan Klang Lama here on May 3, has surrendered himself to the police.

Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigation Department deputy head (Intelligence/Operation) ACP Alzafny Ahmad said the suspect, in his 40s, surrendered himself at the Brickfields district police headquarters at 3 pm last Friday.

He said the suspect, who went to the police station with his lawyer, was released on police bail the same day after his statement was recorded.

Alzafny said until today, 15 individuals, including the “Datuk Seri” had been arrested, but all of them were released on police bail.

“Investigations are on-going, including identifying several witnesses and other suspects in the case. One of the wanted individuals is abroad and the person is expected to surrender to the police next week upon his return,” he said when contacted today.

It was reported that about 40 armed individuals, believed to be members of a secret society had attacked the entertainment centre and caused damage to the premises on May 3. — Bernama
