Umrah pilgrims sent porn from Ku Nan’s phone


PETALING JAYA: Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor is seeing red after learning that 72 umrah pilgrims were sent pornographic images from his handphone.

In an article in The Star that quoted Mingguan Malaysia, the Federal Territories minister, also known as Ku Nan, said the act was unforgivable and that the matter would be investigated by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

Among those who received the pornographic images through WhatsApp were several imams, who the minister himself sent off to Aceh, Indonesia on Thursday for a religious mission, the report said.

Tengku Adnan said he was made aware of the unsavoury pictures when one of the pilgrims informed him about it.

“Sometimes I leave my phone unattended. It’s my mistake that irresponsible people had probably taken the opportunity to clone my phone,” he added.

“This has happened many times before, but this time it’s worse,” he was quoted as saying.

Police report lodged against fake letter of PM seeking support


Kow Gah Chie

An Umno Youth member today lodged a police report over a fake letter bearing the purported signature of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak seeking support from a corporate company.

According to Nazir Hussin Akhtar Hussin, the letter, dated April 6, also bore the purported letterhead of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and Najib’s forged signature. It was sent to a high ranking official of an automotive and construction company, Nazir added.

“With the general election coming up soon, I will like to use this medium to reach out to your humble self and solicit for your support and loyalty. With an amiable personality, such as yourself behind me, I am confident that we will achieve great things working together,” the letter states.

Speaking to reporters after lodging the report at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters this morning, Nazir said he had received a copy of the letter last Friday and he had personally sought clarification from the PMO.

He said the fake letter, a copy of which he also showed to the reporters present, was meant to tarnish the integrity of the prime minister and the PMO.

Nazir added that he believes similar letters were sent out to other corporate bodies and individuals.

Likely a scam

The purported letter, addressed Weststar Group managing director Syed Azman Ibrahim, also stated how his contributions were noticed by Najib.

“Your leadership in your sector has not gone unnoticed, hence you are receiving this letter from me,” reads the letter.

The recipient of the letter was asked to reply to an email, purportedly belonging to Najib.

(Video) Lorry driver arrested over 21-year-old’s abduction

RAWANG: Police today arrested a lorry driver to assist in investigations into the abduction of a 21-year-old man in Taman Kinrara, Puchong, two days ago.

Serdang district police chief ACP Megat Mohammad Aminudin Megat Alias said acting on a tip-off, a team from the serious crimes division (D9) nabbed the 27-year-old suspect, who is a local, at Taman Bukit Rawang Jaya in Rawang at 1.30am today.

“We have recorded a statement where during interrogation, the suspect, who is a lorry driver and has no prior criminal record admitted to be involved in the incident. He is the driver of one of the cars used to pick up the victim.

“We are still ascertaining the identities of nine other individuals,” he said, adding that the suspect has been remanded for four days from today.

Megat Mohammad Aminudin added that the motive of the “abduction” was a misunderstanding involving a woman but a thorough investigation is still ongoing.

On Friday, a group of 10 assailants in two cars arrived at the victim’s house at about 3am.

They then pounced on him before forcing him into one of the cars and speeding off.

Megat Mohammad Aminudin said the victim managed to escape at 6am on Friday near Petaling Jaya when the group pushed him out of the car.

Mum, daughter lured to send ‘grandpa’ their nude photos


PETALING JAYA: A 13-year-old girl has been manipulated into sending her nude photos to a man she befriended on Facebook.

For the past two years, Ann and her 43-year-old mother May had been chatting with the man known as “H”, whom Ann regarded as a “grandfather”, but had never met in person, reported The Star.

In February, “H” managed to coax Ann into sending him nude photos of herself. Later he pestered Ann into sending nude pictures of her mother.

When May found out about the photos, she became angry with “H”, who threatened to spread Ann’s nude photos to the public if he did not get more nude photos of the single mother.

Hoping to put an end to the threat and under duress, May got Ann to take photos of her showering and sent them to “H”. May was also blackmailed into sending “H” RM2,590.

Later, when strangers started propositioning May through WhatsApp and Facebook, she went to the Kuantan PKR service centre for help.

“They have the nude photos of my daughter and myself and threatened to abduct and rape her or kill me if I do not have sex with them,” The Star quoted May as saying at the service centre here yesterday.

May said she feared for the safety of her daughter.

Police arrest two in fake iPhone 6s scam


KUALA KUBU BARU: Police have busted a syndicate selling fake iPhone 6s following the arrest of two men, including a foreigner, in a raid yesterday.

The syndicate was selling the smartphone at RM500 per unit compared to the original market price which is higher than RM3,000 each.

Their target was mainly those who stopped at highway petrol stations or at the hypermarkets.

Hulu Selangor district police chief Superintendent R Supramaniam said the duo, aged 24 and 52, were separately arrested at Cheras and Ampang, after two reports claiming that they had fallen for the fraud was lodged on Wednesday.

The victims said they were approached by an individual offering them the deal when they were at a North- South Expressway (NSE) rest area petrol station.

“The victims left immediately after paying without checking the content. They only realised that it was a fake phone when it did not function after they inserted the SIM card,” Supramaniam said in a statement today.

Following the reports, Hulu Selangor district Commercial Crime Investigation division detained a 24-year-old man in Pandan Indah, Ampang yesterday.

“After being interrogated by the police, he brought the team to Plaza Cheras where a 52-year-old foreign man was arrested.

“Police also seized 21 counterfeit iPhone 6s, an original iPhone 6s and an original iPhone 4s from the second man,” he said, adding they also confiscated a Honda City used by the first suspect.

Could Hishamuddin Hussein be next in line to be PM? After all, he is the PM’s cousin…

The man who could be the next PM…

This was in 2005 but who has forgotten?

Hishammuddin’s steps to power

April 17, 2017

The new minister with special functions occupies an unusual but maybe pivotal role.


The appointment of Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein to the position of minister with special functions is one of the more curious political moves in recent memory. The buzz is that Prime Minister Najib Razak needs his first cousin as his right hand man. So one must wonder what must be running through the head of current DPM Zahid Hamidi, especially so close to a general election.

Zahid’s ambition has been noted by several quarters, with some critics believing that he veers too far to the right for the comfort of the public. Nonetheless, the DPM is a valuable asset to the Najib administration, but Hishammuddin’s sudden ascent has thrown the succession plan into disarray.

Hishammuddin certainly has a much better reputation with moderates than Zahid, and perhaps can be seen as something of a peace offering to those spooked by the new religious fundamentalist and ethno nationalist approach of Umno.

Unlike his cousin’s other lieutenants, Hishammuddin has kept a low public profile. While he is not looked to for an opinion like Khairy Jamaluddin is whenever a crisis erupts, he is seen as a quiet problem solver, brokering important defence deals in the Middle East and working with China on defence interests.

Overall, he is seen as better spoken and more temperate a candidate for leader than Zahid, but memories may be long when it comes to perceptions of a politician’s character. People still remember his belligerance as Umno Youth chief. He brandished a keris during his speech at the Umno general assembly of 2005. He might have to do a little work to shake off that memory if he is truly positioned to take over as Deputy Prime Minister.

Nonetheless, Hishammuddin’s presence may yet prove to be appealing to the more cosmopolitan of the right wing and an acceptable compromise for the moderates and the left. Such an appeal is something that BN probably feels it needs in facing GE14.

Liow: He has vast experience and proven capabilities

KUALA LUMPUR, April 16 — He is a man of vast experience with proven capabilities and who has helped the government and country.

Such were the accolades heaped on Defence Minister Datuk Hishammuddin Hussein following his appointment as minister with special functions in the Prime Minister’s Department.

“Hishammuddin has also done a lot in terms of bringing in foreign investments, which include Saudi Arabian oil company Saudi Aramco investing US$7 billion (RM30.8 billion) in the Petronas Refinery and Petrochemicals Integrated Development (RAPID) within the Pengerang Integrated Complex  project in Johor,” Transport Minister Datuk Liow Tiong Lai said in supporting the prime minister’s announcement on the appointment.

He added he believes Hishammuddin’s new portfolio would allow him to help the government address many other matters, hence the reason he was confident the new portfolio suited Hishammuddin, and he did not see why there should be any speculation.

– See more at:

Najib’s move to elevate Hishammuddin’s stature is reminiscent of 2015, when the prime minister axed his then deputy Muhyiddin Yassin and replaced him with Zahid.

According to, the biggest question, in the minds of political observers is whether Hishammuddin was brought into the Prime Minister’s Department to strengthen Najib, or if the move was part of a transition of power plan.

Ahmad Zahid will never be the prime minister, says Zam

The post of deputy prime minister is all Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is meant to be, claims former Umno minister Zainudin Maidin, following the appointment of Hishammuddin Hussein as a special functions minister.

“This appointment confirms that the future of the country is in the hands of Hishammuddin as the prime minister.

“He (Hishammuddin) will be the prime minister of Malaysia and Ahmad Zahid is only suitable to be a deputy prime minister forever,” Zainudin, the former editor-in-chief of Utusan Malaysia who is widely known as Zam, said in a blog posting last night.

Man arrested for allegedly raping teen in Mukah

MUKAH: Police apprehended a man suspected of raping a teenage girl recently. Mukah District Police chief DSP Jimmy Panyau said the suspect, 21, was arrested here around 2.30pm today.

“The suspect will be remanded tomorrow (Sunday) to facilitate investigations under Section 376 of the Penal Code,” he said when contacted.

It is understood that the incident was discovered when the 15-year-old, who was not schooling, was sent for a check-up at Mukah Hospital because of pain in the genital area.

The doctor who examined the victim suspected something was amiss and lodged a police report.

Jimmy said, based on investigation, the teenager claimed to have had sex with the suspect since last year.

He said the most recent incident was last month at a budget hotel here. — Bernama

Cops say alleged rapist’s plan to wed 13-yr-old victim won’t save him

The police have made it clear that an alleged rapist’s reported wish to marry his pregnant 13-year-old victim will not save him from prison if he is convicted.

Contacted by Malaysiakini, Kuching district police chief Abang Ahmad Abang Julai could not confirm if the 20-year-old suspect had stated his desire to marry the girl or if the two were in a relationship.

“But regardless, even if he wants to marry her, it doesn’t mean he can escape punishment. The girl is underaged so it is still considered rape,” Abang Ahmad said.

According to a report in the New Sarawak Tribune, the man was arrested by the police in Kuching yesterday.

Upon being questioned, the man reportedly told police that he would marry the victim.

The news article stated that prior to the arrest, a police report was lodged after the victim’s mother took the girl to a clinic after she complained of abdominal pain.

A medical check-up revealed that the girl was several months pregnant.

The report did not state whether the two were in a relationship or if there was any element of consent.

Under the law, intercourse with a girl below the age of consent – which is 16 in Malaysia – is classified as statutory rape, regardless of consent.

The incident comes two weeks after an uproar over Tasek Gelugor MP Shabudin Yahaya’s statement in Parliament that a rapist marrying his victim could be a remedy for social ills.


Man, 20, sought for raping underage girl in Mukah

SIBU: Police are looking for a 20-year-old man for allegedly raping an underage girl in Mukah, some three hours drive from here.

Mukah police chief Deputy Supt Jimmy Panyau said Friday the 15-year-old girl sought treatment at Mukah Hospital on Thursday afternoon for an infection in her private part.

“The girl was experiencing pain in her private part, believed to have been caused by an infection.

“Doctors treating her sensed something amiss and lodged a police report,” he said.

DSP Jimmy said the girl, a school dropout, admitted having sex with the man since 2016, most recently last month.

“Our initial investigation showed that they had sex in a budget hotel in Mukah,” he added.

Police: No, Bangsar butcher was NOT assaulted by a group but by one man. Yes, one eye popped out!

14 April 2017


Surgery to save butcher’s popped-out eye

His son J. Samy Kumar, a 31-year-old engineer said that his father’s condition is currently stable but doctors have informed the family that he will have to go into surgery to correct the eyeball that had popped out of its socket due to the savage beating he received.

“Doctors have informed us about the surgery but we are not sure what surgery it is, we are awaiting a briefing from the doctor,” he told theSun.

Samy said his father, S. Jayakumaran, 67, is currently in stable condition and is feeling much better compared to the last few days.

“He is much better, he is happy that his family are around him and we are glad that he is safe now, but we are still waiting for him to go into surgery,” said Samy.

Brickfields police chief ACP Sharul Othman Mansor said police arrested two suspects aged 25 and 26 on Tuesday and Thursday for further investigations into the incident that happened on April 9.

Samy told theSun that police had been in touch with him and told him that they had sought a remand extension for the two suspects to further investigations.

Police refute viral Facebook post about Bangsar assault

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have refuted a viral Facebook post alleging that a butcher was assaulted by a group of suspects in Bangsar.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Sharul Othman Mansor said the elderly man was in fact assaulted by a single man.
ACP Sharul Othman said that based on investigations, the suspect claimed that his cousin was the one who assaulted the victim.

“The suspect claimed he confronted the elderly man with his wife and brother-in-law and mother-in-law for using foul language and pointing a meat cleaver at the two women,” said ACP Sharul Othman.

He added that the suspect also claimed that the elderly man wanted to lodge a police report and said that the victim, the suspect and his family members were walking toward the police beat base at Bangsar when the suspect’s cousin came on a motorcycle and immediately started assaulting the victim.

ACP Sharul Othman also said the suspect also claimed that he and his family members attempted to stop the assault.

“Based on our current investigations we refute a viral post on Facebook claiming that the victim was assaulted by a group of thugs. We have also arrested a second 25-year-old suspect to help in investigations,” he said, urging the public not to speculate further and allow police to continue their investigations.



Bangsar butcher savagely assaulted until eye pops out

KUALA LUMPUR: A 67-year-old butcher lost his sight in an eye after he was savagely beaten up allegedly by a group of men for refusing to entertain their demands to sell meat and poultry to a restaurant at below-market prices at Lucky Garden, Bangsar on Sunday.

S. Jayakumaran, a meat trader of 31 years at the Bangsar wet market and a butcher familiar to residents of the township, also suffered multiple injuries as a result of the attack on Sunday morning.

According to his son J. Samy Kumar, a 31-year-old engineer, the beating was so severe that his father’s right eyeball popped out of its socket.

“He was holding the eyeball in his hands before pushing it back into the socket. Doctors say he needs to undergo surgery but he fully lost his sight in his right eye due to the damage.” he told theSun.

According to Samy, his father was approached days earlier by a woman who had opened an Indian banana leaf restaurant in Lucky Garden recently.

He said the woman had asked her father to supply poultry at below-market prices which he refused.

The woman apparently left and returned with her daughter who also made similar demands.

When Jayakumaran stood his ground, the woman’s daughter allegedly picked up several meat pieces, a meat hook, a weighing scale and all within her reach and hurled it at him.

The woman’s daughter had allegedly also thrown punches and then snatched his handphone before throwing it to the ground when the man sought help.

Samy said his father did not retaliate but told them that he would lodge a police report.

As he walked towards the Jalan Telawi police beat base, four men showed up at a bus stop near the Bangsar Village shopping center and started assaulting him.

“My father said they removed his shirt and held his hands while three of them started assaulting him, landing heavy blows on his face. The assault only stopped when a group of five passing policemen arrived at the scene.” he said.

Brickfields police chief ACP Sharul Othman Mansor said police arrested two suspects aged 25 and 26 on Tuesday and today.

Rafizi Ramli files a Statutory Declaration…

13 April 2017



If I’m wrong, arrest me, says Rafizi after naming PAS man

April 13, 2017

With the statutory declaration, any police report and subsequent charge will open the way for us to drag the 1MDB issue to court again, says Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli.


KUALA LUMPUR: Confident of his revelation that former PAS deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa was a recipient of funds allegedly embezzled from 1MDB, PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli today filed a statutory declaration (SD) over the matter.

With the SD, those who doubt him could lodge a police report, and he would be subjected to a variety of laws instead of just a civil suit, said the PKR vice-president.

“I made the SD about an hour ago. So if any of the things I said were false, a police report can be lodged and I can be arrested. That is why it is quite rare for anyone to make a SD.

“And I’m more than happy to go through the legal process because once it takes place, then we are in the position where we can drag the 1MDB issue to court again,” he told a press conference here earlier today.

The Pandan MP revealed that Nasharudin had received funds, allegedly from a former 1MDB subsidiary.

Rafizi alleged that the funds were originally channelled into Prime Minister Najib Razak’s personal account, and later, an undisclosed amount was transferred to Nasharudin.

The information, according to Rafizi, was revealed to him on Jan 28 this year, by a former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) senior officer who had led an investigation into 1MDB, and Najib’s alleged involvement in the scandal.

“That was the first time I had communicated with him (the senior officer),” Rafizi said.

“He told me how the MACC investigation also found an amount of money paid in the form of cheques from Najib’s personal account to Nasharudin.”

In the SD, which Rafizi later distributed to the media, he claimed that Najib had made some payments to a lawyer who was questioned by MACC.

The lawyer had allegedly assisted in the transfer of funds to some individuals, including Nasharudin, he said.

Rafizi also said that he would be lodging a report over the matter, to MACC, at 11am tomorrow.

Nik Abduh: PAS knows, but does not speak out if evidence is incomplete

PAS leaders know a lot of information too, but they don’t necessarily divulge it, its Youth chief Nik Abduh Nik Aziz said.

This, he said, is because the party has ethics.

“PAS leaders have a lot of information too. But they strive to practise good values, that when the evidence is not complete, then silence is the sheathed weapon, let (the secrets) reveal itself,” Nik Abduh said in a Facebook post.

He said this while admonishing PKR’s Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli’s penchant for digging up information.

This followed the release of a statutory declaration by Rafizi, in which he claimed that former PAS deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa had received funds linked to a former 1MDB subsidiary, SRC International.

“It’s true what the PAS president (Abdul Hadi Awang) said, Pandan (Rafizi) doesn’t know sin and virtue.

“He likes to dig (up information) so much, that it has become a hobby. Even chicken excrement is said to be the chicken’s owner’s excrement,” added Nik Abduh, the Pasir Mas MP.



Rafizi names ex-MACC top brass as source in SRC funds SD


PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli has claimed that a former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) top officer is his source with regard to an allegation which implicated an ex-PAS top leader.

“He (the source) was the most senior MACC officer heading investigations into 1MDB funds and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s involvement in the scandal.

“As such, he has detailed and legitimate information regarding the investigation,” the Pandan lawmaker said in a statutory declaration (SD), which he revealed to the media this afternoon.

According to Rafizi, he had met the former MACC officer on Jan 28 to inquire about how he was doing after retirement.

The two of them, he said, exchanged information as regular citizens.

Speaking to Malaysiakini later, Rafizi said he had released details about the whistleblower’s position as a graftbuster, with the latter’s consent.

“Yes, he was agreeable to me making the SD in this manner,” he added.

In his SD, Rafizi accused former PAS deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa of receiving funds from SRC International, which is a former subsidiary of 1MDB.

He also alleged that the funds originated from Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s personal account and were transferred to Nasharudin through a lawyer.

Nasharudin is the current chief executive of the Global Movement of Moderates, which is a brainchild of the Najib administration. He is also a member of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Consultation and Corruption Prevention Panel.

Malaysiakini has contacted Nasharudin for comment.
