Ahmad Zahid was commenting on Waythamoorthy’s alleged questioning of the police explanation that the five suspected gangsters killed in a shootout with the police in Penang last Monday had been shot “execution-style”. http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/toe-the-line-zahid-advises-waythamoorthy-bernama — In the run-up to the elections, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and senior BN leaders graced a mammoth dinner in Port Klang, attended by a football-stadium size crowd. In attendance were some of the biggest names in Malaysia’s underworld to show solidarity with the ruling coalition.

Why do Malaysia’s gangsters think they’re The Untouchables?
August 22, 2013 Latest Update: August 22, 2013 03:55 pm NEWS ANALYSIS The country’s top cop and his phalanx of senior officials are angry that gangsters are taunting them by parading gang colours in public and spraying gang numbers all over the place. … This is Malaysia where gangsters are supposed to be afraid of the biggest gang of all – the 100,000-strong Royal Malaysian Police, legally armed with a powerful arsenal of weapons and with a irrevocable mandate to keep the country safe for all. So how did it come to this? This is a brazen show of force by gang 04 members after five of its alleged gang leaders were killed by police in Penang on Tuesday. They wore their number and colours openly, carried their flags and blocked off traffic during an elaborate funeral procession right through the artery of the island. And this was not a one-off coming out party for gangsters. In Sentul, gang 08 members buried one of their own a couple of weeks ago by taking over traffic control and having their own marchpast, complete with flags. … But how do you explain this show of force, this no fear of authorities, this come-and-get-me-if-you-dare challenge? Criminals the world over do not advertise their presence to the cops unless they believe that: 1) The police and other security agencies are inept. 2) They have enough “cables” with those in power to get out of even the most hopeless of situations. Therefore, getting arrested and thrown into jail is only a minor inconvenience. http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/why-do-malaysias-gangsters-think-theyre-the-untouchables — The hearse of 21-year-old M.

Denying that the police had a shoot-to-kill policy, he said: “When police personnel died in Lahad Datu defending the nation, we were accused of staging a drama. “When shooting cases became rampant, we were accused of sitting on our butts and not doing anything to (curb the violence). “And when criminals are shot dead, we are accused of being overzealous and cruel. What charade are these people (the critics) playing?” Khalid said this is an issue which concerns public security and that the police are serious in battling crime. “We don’t care what the critics say, we have a duty to carry out, and we will carry it out to ensure that Malaysians are safe (from crime),” he stressed.

One of the five men shot dead in Sungai Nibong in Penang early on Monday morning, J Gobinath, was given an elaborate funeral in Butterworth yesterday afternoon. During the ceremony, Gobinath, 31, was referred to as the ‘King of Butterworth’. According to the Chinese-language Oriental Daily News, more than 100 people – not counting family members and relatives – showed up to pay their last respects. Many joined the funeral march, riding motorcycles. Along the way to the cemetery, some of the motorcyclists let off firecrackers and held up a banner with ’04’ on it, believed to represent an underworld society. Gobinath’s coffin was carried by a group of young men, believed to be his friends. Some of those present also waved flags with the ’04’ number. A white catafalque preceded the march, with large portraits of Gobinath on both sides. On one side were the words ‘King of Butterworth R.I.P’. As the procession was a long one that stopped several times, traffic along Jalan Raja Uda was clogged for a while. Grand funeral for one of five shot dead — Malaysiakini

Set up inquiry into shooting of five in Penang by police, says DAP
DAP has demanded for an inquiry into the shooting of five men by the police in Penang, which has led to allegations that they were executed. Puchong MP and DAP National Legal Bureau chairman Gobind Singh Deo said if police could not justify their action, it must face the consequences. “Wide powers are given to the police to use weapons but these powers are not without limitation. In cases where arrests may be made without the need to shoot and kill, such killings cannot be justified,” he said in a statement today. He urged the Attorney-General to give an assurance that there will be an open inquiry and that there would be no cover up into the matter. http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/set-up-inquiry-into-shooting-of-five-in-penang-by-police-says-dap — The families of the victims claim that their sons died in a hail of bullets.

Penang police today maintained that they had followed the standard operating procedure (SOP) in the raid on an apartment where five members of a gang were killed in a shootout yesterday, contrary to the claims by the families of the dead men. Penang chief police officer Abdul Rahim Hanafi said the police had adhered strictly to the SOP. “It is not true that the police fired more than 30 shots at the suspects without identifying themselves. We identified ourselves before entering the apartment and were shot at. “We kept to the SOP and only fired a number of shots which hit them, and not as alleged by them (the family members),” he told reporters at a meeting with Op Selamat 3/2013 personnel in George Town. The media today carried reports quoting the families of the five men as claiming that police had shot repeatedly at the suspects without adhering to the SOP. Police insist they had followed SOP in shooting incident — The people no longer believe the standard answers of self-defence by the police. The force needs to be overhauled,” he said. Malaysiakini
Persatuan Hindraf Malaysia chairperson P Waythamoorthy has questioned the manner the police killed the five suspects in a shoot-out in Penang as photos and their injuries suggested they were shot at “point blank” range. Waythamoorthy (left), who is also a deputy minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, said he had seen the photos of the Penang shooting sent by his sources. After viewing them, he said no one in the right frame of mind would believe that there was actually a shoot-out between the police and suspects. He warned that the public has been monitoring the police statements closely over the years. “Each time the police appear to giving a standard answer that they were shot at and acted in self-defence. But the injuries do not describe a shoot-out situation while the photos show they were shot at point blank range,” said Waythamoorthy. The association’s chairperson said it was baffling that inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar had concluded that the three weapons retrieved from the suspects were related to 10 murder cases. “One wonders how such ballistic tests could have been carried out at super speed, and even if that was possible, how they could be linked to 10 previous murders so hastily. ” Waytha questions manner of killing of suspects — Free Malaysia Today

PENANG SHOOTOUT: Were the police right to shoot to kill?
Written by J. D. Lovrenciear
The family members of the five men who were shot dead by police in Sungai Nibong claimed the bodies from the Penang General Hospital mortuary last night. Speaking on behalf of the families, Seri Delima assemblyperson RSN Rayer said the families took the bodies after they had lodged police reports at the Northeast district police headquarters on Jalan Pattani. Rayer said inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar and Penang police chief Abdul Rahman Hanafi should provide more evidence that the five killed did in fact have underworld links and were involved in a recent spate of shootings in various states in the country, as police claim. Rayer questioned why the bodies of the men had multiple bullet wounds when they could not have escaped from the 11th floor of the apartment in Sungai Nibong. “One of the five men was shot more than once in the head, and the others had fatal gunshot wounds on the chest, neck, face and the head and could not have survived the shooting,” Rayer said when contacted. “The five men were in the 11th floor of the apartment and definitely could not have escaped anywhere, so it baffles me why the police shot them in the head, chest, face and the neck, instead of their legs or hands,” he added. “Is the IGP saying that the Malaysian police are not professionally trained to effect the arrest of five men in the 11th storey of an apartment, other than shooting them dead?” Rayer asked.

ANY ACTION, PM NAJIB? Man shot dead in Cheras by gunmen on motorbike
Written by Malaysia Chronicle KUALA LUMPUR – In the space of 3 days, assassins on motorbikes have struck twice in Malaysia’s capital city. The first was a day ago on Friday where the victim – a gold dealer – was lucky enough to survive despite assailants firing 3 shots at him when he stopped his car at a traffic light in Pandan Indah. Today, in Cheras Perdana not too far away from Pandah Indah, another ‘contract-style hit’ was carried out. This time it was fatal. An ex-convict was shot dead in the living room of a house in Cheras Perdana, Batu 9, Cheras today. In the 1.30pm incident, the 36-year-old victim was shot three times in the chest. District police chief Assistant Commissioner Abdul Rashid Abdul Wahab said the suspects, two men on a motorcycle, arrived at the house on Jalan CP 3/24 in the Cheras Perdana housing estate minutes before the incident. “The victim was identified as Selangor-born B. Balamurali, who was just released from jail in June,” NST reported Rashid as saying.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Mohmad Salleh wants Pascal Najadi, son of slain Ambank founder Hussain Ahmad, to return to Malaysia and assist in investigations over the assassination of his father. “Come back to Malaysia and cooperate with the police so that we can know what really happened. “See us, and let us interview him to assist the police in solving his father’s death,” he told journalists after a walkabout at Masjid India last night. Mohmad was responding to a query from Malaysiakini on Pascal’s denial that his father’s death had something to do with a land deal that had gone awry. “There was no property deal-turned-sour in my father’s murder as our company is not involved in such business,” he was quoted as saying by Bernama on Thursday. However, Mahmod said Pascal is not in Malaysia and may not be abreast on matters. “He’s making denials overseas. He is not in Malaysia but in Russia. Denials in the newspapers do not carry weight. “Denials will not solve this case,” he said, reiterating that the Arab Investments for Asia Kuwait Limited (AIAK) Group deputy chairperson should return to Malaysia.

A GUNMAN can be hired in Johor Baru for just RM5,000, according to a Malaysian private investigator. The 45-year-old PI said the price was so affordable that even teachers were not spared from being the targets of assassination now, compared to previously when gunmen were only hired to take down those from the upper-class or reputable folk. A Singaporean newspaper report, which was picked up by Sin Chew Daily, quoted him as saying that most of the victims were either involved in business rivalry, heavily in debt or targets of revenge.

At least five empty slugs of 9mm calibre pistol were recovered at the crime scene. So far, no arrests have been made and police were investigating the motive for the random shooting.

Just lie down
First thing is to lie on the floor and avoid the bullet, says DCP Mohd Shukri
Although shootings are scary, people should try not to panic and be alert, says Perak police chief. STATE police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan said when a shooting takes place in a public place, people should not panic. The first thing they should do was to quickly lie on the floor to avoid the bullet hitting them. DCP Mohd Shukri said it would really help the police if patrons at a restaurant or any other location were alert or at least have a glance at how many assailants there were. “I know it can be really scary and dangerous being in such a situation, but if they could at least identify the race of the assailant or assailants and give a brief description on how they looked like, the lead will be stronger. “Other things to look for is, if a conversation had taken place before the shooting, like ‘tak bayar hutang’, (you did not settle your debts) or ‘ you tipu saya’ (you cheated me). “When we know what sort of conversation had taken place, the police have an inkling on the leads,” he told The Star recently. He added that once the situation was under control, people should help the victim and call the police immediately. …

Plots thickens in banker Najadi’s murder: SON THROWS IN A NEW TWIST
Written by Malaysia Chronicle The only son of banker Hussain Ahmad Najadi murder has thrown a new twist into his father’s shock murder. According to the 45-year-old Pascal, Hussain’s murder was premeditated and related to an attempt by a group to demand money from a Goddess of Mercy temple in Lorong Ceylon, Kuala Lumpur. “My father was a mediator between the two parties. There was no property deal turned sour in my father’s murder as our company do not involve in such business,” Bernama reported Pascal as saying in a telephone interview from Moscow, where he is currently based. All eyes on what Chong will reveal Pascal’s revelation throws a question mark on the initial findings by the police that Hussain’s murder was linked to a property deal that had gone awry. It also swivels attention to Hussain’s second wife Chong Mei Kuen, who was with him at the time of the killing but was shot in the left wrist and right thigh. A member of the temple committee, Chong is still recovering in hospital although she had been allowed to attend her husband funeral. Chong has yet to make public her suspicions on her husband’s slaying.

Recent spate of shootings raises fear
THE recent spate of shootings in the country has created fear among the people as they have to think twice before eating in a restaurant or walking in a crowded place. They want the authorities to be more vigilant and nail the suspects before things got out of hand. Hafiz Zayin, 45, a businessman, said the police should investigate the cases of the rampant shootings not only in Perak but nationwide to get in-depth leads to help nab the culprits. … Daniel Lim, 25, who concurred with Hafiz, said the police must conduct frequent patrolling just like in other countries. “In foreign countries, the police are constantly patrolling on foot, horses, motorcycles and MPVs. We should follow suit. … Hisham Mohd Hanip, 39, said it was scary to read the newspapers or watch the news which reported at least one shooting a day. The senior administrator said he was afraid to even take his family out for a meal. “We are the innocent parties sitting in a restaurant enjoying our meal and if such an incident occurs, what are we to do? Hisham said the police should carry out more patrols. … Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation vice-chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye said all the law enforcement agencies must put their heads together to find a solution on the easy availability of firearms brought into the country. Recent spate of shootings raises fear — Should the guns used in the attacks are found to be unlicenced, he said police should work with other agencies like the Immigration and Customs Departments to stop the smuggling of guns into the country. Malaysiakini
PAS has urged the police to review all gun licences issued to ensure that the guns did not fall into the wrong hands, contributing to the recent spate of shootings. PAS information chief Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man also urged that the identities of all licenced gun owners be made public. “The police should review the activities of all gun onwers in the country to ensure the guns have not been misused. “The list of all gun owners should be made public, if this is allowed for by the law and does not pose a security threat,” he said in a statement today. Tuan Ibrahim said that revision of gun licences is required as this could be one of the ways criminals are getting their hands on firearms despite Malaysia’s tight gun control policies. These policies, he said, include a maximum death penalty for certain offences under the Firearms Act (Increased Penalties) 1971 and strict requirements for those wanting a gun licence. “With this, and the recent shootings in mind, PAS hopes that the police can also enlighten us as to the number of gun licences already issued thus far,” he said. http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/237238 — LATEST INCIDENT OF SHOOTING!

It was short-lived joy for a lone gunman (above) who targeted four locations in Segamat and stole a pack of cigarettes and RM1,600. The unemployed 33-year-old suspect first tried to rob a clinic (clockwise from top left), and then hit a convenience store and two petrol stations. He was caught within four hours while spending his ill-gotten gains at a nightclub. Segamat OCPD Supt Mohd Kamil Sukarmi said the unemployed 33year-old suspect, tried to robbed four shops including a private clinic before he zoomed in on a petrol station located along Jalan Ibrahim in Buloh Kasap here at around 1.24am yesterday. “He had robbed a convenience shop where he only took a pack of cigarettes before going to the petrol station where he flashed his gun to the worker inside. “He panicked when several customers entered the petrol station. He grabbed RM1,600 before fleeing on a motorcycle,” Supt Mohd Kamil said, adding that the suspect used a helmet and a piece of cloth to hide his identity. … Supt Mohd Kamil also said police raided the suspect’s house in Taman Perdana here and found a 9mm toy gun wrapped in a newspaper hidden underneath a pot of flowers. They also seized a parang and other items use by the suspect to carry out several robberies. Supt Mohd Kamil also said police believed that the suspect may have hidden the gun and motorcycle used in the robberies to cover his tracks.
Police have failed to tackle issue of rising crime
Three shootings yesterday showed that police have failed to tackle the issue of rising crime in the country, said DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng who added that using the repeal of the Emergency Ordinance as a reason for this is unacceptable. The shooting of Arab-Malaysian Development Bank founder Hussain Ahmad Najadi is proof that the escalating crime was not due to gangland murders as claimed by police. “Blaming the abolition of the EO as the main reason for the increased crimes and gangland murders was not acceptable as yesterday’s murder of the prominent banker proved otherwise.
Cops not to blame for recent spate of shootings as they are understaffed, says Ahmad Zahid
The recent spate of shootings should not be blamed on the police as the force faces a shortage in manpower and equipment compared to other developed countries. Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidisaid this at a press conference after receiving a courtesy call from the Australia’s High Commissioner to Malaysia, Miles Kuppa, at his office here today. “For example, in New York, a policeman serves 35 residents while a policeman in Malaysia serves 700 residents,” he said. Ahmad Zahid added one of the factors for the spike in the crime rate was the release of detainees from Simpang Renggam prison. He also said the ministry would enhance border security to check smuggling of firearms and consider buying new equipment and installing more CCTV cameras to check crime. – Bernama, July 30, 2013 Cops not to blame for recent spate of shootings as they are understaffed, says Ahmad Zahid

First a Customs Deputy DG gets hit with a bullet right in the administrative capital. It cost him his precious life. Then comes the assassination attempt on R. Sri Sanjeevan who is now fighting for his life with a bullet lodged in his rib cage. And even before we can get a grip of these shocking shootings in a country where arms are illegal, yet another broad daylight murder with a gun has taken place. We hear that in the open car park right here in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur the Founder of ARAB Malaysian Development Bank, Hussain Ahmad, was pumped with bullets and killed. And at lunch hour rush time, mind you. … Now the top guns of the country are rushing to warn the public not to speculate and are dishing out conclusive statements – never mind if the statements contradict one another. After all there is the escape clause, “the media misquoted”. … The public are saying, “Look it is happening in broad daylight.” Yes, the gun-toting killers are doing it right in front of public eyes. They are not even bothered about the CCTVs that the police said were meant to deter would be criminals. And these killings are happening at rush hours too. People are asking, in the first place where did all these guns come from? How come it seems so easy to take lives away especially when the victims are such high-profile figures? And who are these ‘hired killers’ – assuming that they were paid to get the job done? … We are not talking about gang clashes. We are not talking about underworld verses underworld. We are plain bloody concerned when citizens who are in service to His Majesty the Yang DiPertuan Agung and who have contributed immensely to the financial and economic development of Malaysia and those who are championing a commitment to clean up Malaysia are being removed with the gun. Can we condone this? But here, life goes on as usual. Well, after all the police have warned the public to shut up. The Home Minister has threatened to take action at citizens who are out to cause mischief. Meanwhile at the warongs and corporate corridors, it is your guess as good as mine, “who next?”. Or for some it is a case of “why so busybody lah, MYOB is better these days”. MAILBAG
