MI5 Identify 23,000 Islamic Extremists in the UK

zcc

UK intelligence service MI5, which focuses on domestic threats, has revealed a staggering 23,000 potential jihadists are now being monitored. This is the first time such a large number has been publicly admitted, and follows the Manchester suicide bomb attack which targeted children at a pop concert. Twenty two have died so far.

Whitehall sources disclosed the huge task now facing counter-terrorism agencies, presenting extreme difficulty and spiralling costs. MI5 has faced criticism for not preventing the Manchester attack, and this disclosure goes some way to explain how jihadists can still slip through the net. MI5 currently has around 500 active investigations, involving 3,000 suspects. These figures alone are intimidating, but the additional 20,000 “residual” suspects present a colossal challenge to security services.

While 23,000 extremists have been identified so far, the true number could be many more.

Prime minister’s statement in full

Theresa May’s evening update on events in Manchester

In my statement earlier today I said that the police and security services needed to investigate whether or not Abedi was acting alone. Those investigations continue, but the work undertaken throughout the day has revealed that it is a possibility we cannot ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack. This morning I said that the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (Jtac), the independent organisation responsible for setting the threat level on the basis of the intelligence available was keeping the threat level under constant review. It has now concluded on the basis of today’s investigations that the threat level should be increased for the time being from severe to critical. This means that their assessment is not only that an attack remains highly likely, but that a further attack may be imminent. The change in the threat level means that there will be additional resources and support made available to the police as they work to keep us all safe.”

The prime minister continued: “As a result of Jtac’s decision, the police have asked for authorisation from the secretary of state for defence to deploy a number of armed military personnel in support of their armed officers. This request is part of a well established plan known as Operation Temperer in which both the armed forces and the police officers involved are well trained and well prepared to work in this kind of environment. The secretary of state for defence has approved this request and Operation Temperer is now in force. This means that armed police officers responsible for duties such as guarding key sites will be replaced by members of the armed forces, which will allow the police to significantly increase the number of armed officers on patrol in key locations. You might also see military personnel deployed at certain events, such as concerts and sports matches, helping the police to keep the public safe. In all circumstances, members of the armed forces who are deployed in this way will be under the command of police officers. ”

Precisely how the military and armed police officers will be deployed is an operational decision for police commanders. And assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley of the Metropolitan police will be making a statement giving further details at New Scotland Yard later this evening.”

Bomb blast at Bangkok hospital wounds 24

A bomb blast at a hospital in the Thai capital, Bangkok, wounded 24 people on Monday, on the third anniversary of a 2014 military coup.

There was no claim of responsibility for the blast at the Phramongkutklao Hospital, which is popular with retired military officers.

“It was a bomb. We found the pieces that were used to make the bomb,” Kamthorn Aucharoen, commander of the police’s explosive ordnance team, told Reuters.

“Right now, authorities are checking out closed circuit cameras.”

Government spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd said 24 people had
been wounded.

Government spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd said 24 people had been wounded. Most of the wounded were hit by flying glass, the military’s national security unit said.

Suspicion is likely to focus either on political dissidents opposed to military rule or Muslim separatists based in the south of the predominately Buddhist country.

Soldiers cordoned off the hospital’s entrance, a Reuters reporter at the scene said.

Deputy national police chief General Srivara Rangsibrahmanakul said the bomb had been hidden in a container by the entrance of a pharmacy.

Monday is the anniversary of a May 22, 2014, military coup that toppled a democratically elected government and ended months of unrest, including sometimes deadly street demonstrations.

Low-rank cops forced to take bribes to meet “demands” of superiors: Is this true?

District CID chief held in Melaka graft probe
.

MELAKA: A district CID chief is the latest police officer to be detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission  (MACC) in its investigations into a protection racket for vice dens here.

The 49-year-old officer with the rank of Deputy Superintendent was picked up at the Melaka Tengah district police headquarters at 12.30pm on Monday.

The DSP is the 11th individual to be arrested in the investigations into the racket.

Malaysia’s high-ranking cops demand sponsors from their men: Sources

May 22, 2017

KUALA LUMPUR — A contributing factor to rampant police corruption in Malaysia is how high-ranking officers have allegedly demanded “sponsorship” from their men ranging from money to gifts, according to a New Sunday Times report.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, several sources within the force said such a practice had forced policemen, especially those at the district-level, to find “extra income”.

The practice, they said, had become a culture and a bane to policemen nationwide.

They said while it was undeniable that many cases of graft in the force happened because of greed, there were also those who succumbed to pressure as they felt compelled to entertain demands from their higher-ups.

“Demands (from higher-ranking officers) for ‘sponsors’ happen all the time. Whenever there are events like dinners or mess nights, even sporting events, there would be requests for sponsors of jerseys and other items,” said a source.

Another source said it was normal practice for higher-ranking officers to call their men and demand contributions whenever their unit or department organised an event.

These contributions are said to be up to hundreds of ringgit per person, depending on the rank, with officers usually having to pay more.

Sources claimed that the ridiculous demands had led to policemen having to turn to syndicates, who were more than willing to pay as long as their illicit businesses were kept under the enforcement radar. “It is not a secret that this is happening, but many just turn a blind eye because they know the predicament policemen face. Even those with high salaries cannot afford to pay for these contributions and sponsorships out of their own pocket,” said a source.

Zahid wants probe into allegations that cops need to seek ‘side income’

Bernama

Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has directed an investigation over allegations that the police, especially at district level, are forced to seek side incomes to fete their higher-ups.

The home minister said he had directed the Royal Malaysian Police’s (PDRM) Integrity and Compliance Department (JIPS) and Special Branch to investigate the matter, adding that it was something not quite smart if it had really occurred.

“They could have told the truth if they did not have financial resources, they should not use stupid excuses to defend themselves,” he said in his speech at the closing of a Home Ministry (KDN) Media Tour in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Also present was Malaysian National News Agency (Bernama) general manager Zulkifli Salleh and editor-in-chief Zakaria Abd Wahab.

PUTRAJAYA: The remand order against nine men, including two police district chiefs and four cops, detained as part of an investigation into a protection racket for vice dens has been extended by five days.

Magistrate Nik Isfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman granted the remand extension for the suspects to assist the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC)’s probe into the graft case involving illegal gambling dens and massage parlours in Melaka.

The police chiefs of Melaka Tengah and Jasin districts and four other officers – two inspectors and two assistant superintendents of police (ASPs) – had been under remand for six days since last Wednesday.

[EXCLUSIVE] Low-rank cops forced to take bribes to meet “demands” of superiors

KUALA LUMPUR: RAMPANT police corruption should also be blamed on high-ranking officers who demand “sponsors” from their men.

Speaking to the New Sunday Times on condition of anonymity, several sources within the force said such a practice had forced policemen, especially district-level ones, to find “extra income”.

The practice, they said, had become a culture and a bane to policemen nationwide.

A WhatsApp message allegedly being circulated among policemen detailing how district police chiefs have to entertain demands of their superiors.

They said while it was undeniable that many cases of graft in the force happened because of greed, there were also those who succumbed to pressure as they felt compelled to entertain demands from their higher-ups.

“Demands (from higher-ranking officers) for ‘sponsors’ happen all the time. Whenever there are events like dinners or mess nights, even sporting events, there would be requests for sponsors of jerseys and other items,” said a source.

Another source said it was normal practice for higher-ranking officers to call their men and demand contributions whenever their unit or department organised an event.

These contributions are said to be up to hundreds of ringgit per person, depending on the rank, with officers usually having to pay more.

Sources claimed that the ridiculous demands had led to policemen having to turn to syndicates, who were more than willing to pay as long as their illicit businesses were kept under the enforcement radar.

“For officers who are in charge of enforcing laws against vice or illegal gaming dens, for example, they would go to these syndicates while low-ranking ones on general duty take advantage of those who commit small offences and illegal immigrants.

“It is not a secret that this is happening, but many just turn a blind eye because they know the predicament policemen face. Even those with high salaries cannot afford to pay for these contributions and sponsorships out of their own pocket,” said a source.

The NSU was also told of text messages, said to have gone viral on WhatsApp groups among policemen, urging fellow colleagues to stop entertaining such demands from their superiors.

Sources said these messages started circulating after the recent arrests of policemen, including two district police chiefs (OCPDs), by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

One of the messages details how district police chiefs have to entertain demands of their superiors, who allegedly wanted “everything to be ready for them” whenever they visit.

These include accommodation, food and entertainment, regardless if they were there for official business or otherwise.

Another ‘Harapan cabinet list’ surfaces at PKR congress

Alyaa Azhar

zcab.jpeg

Another so-called Pakatan Harapan cabinet list has surfaced, this time at the PKR national congress held in Shah Alam today.

Several copies of the document, titled “Kabinet Harapan Malaysia” (Malaysia’s Harapan cabinet) were found at the staircase leading to the media room at the venue.

The list named PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as both the prime minister and home minister. Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, on the other hand, was named as her deputy and the finance minister.

The list bore the symbols of the four Pakatan Harapan parties – PKR, DAP, Parti Amanah Negara and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) – as well as Parti Warisan Sabah.

It is unclear why Warisan’s logo as well as its deputy president Darell Leiking is on the list. Warisan, although an opposition party, is not part of Pakatan Harapan.

Apart from Wan Azizah and Lim, also on the list are top leaders from Pakatan Harapan – with each party’s top leaders “filling” the cabinet line-up.

Notable exclusions from the list includes Bersatu chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad and DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang, who are the faces of their respective party.

The list also excludes PKR deputy president Azmin Ali and PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli, who have been touted by their respective supporters as prime ministerial candidates.

Netizens shocked as Mat Over is special guest at youth event

PETALING JAYA: Netizens are up in arms over a banner in Hulu Terengganu which promoted Mat Over as a special guest at a Youth Day event there.

“Only in Malaysia you get highest honours once you slap people in front of Prime Minister,” Asrul Muzaffar tweeted while sharing the photo of the banner.

Fellow Twitter user Mohsen Alkaff wrote: “I’m nobody but I volunteer myself to replace Mat Over for Hari Belia (Youth Day) event in Terengganu.

“It’s not that I’m good but at least I’m better than him.

“Youth Day with Mat Over. Is he still considered a youth? He is 60 years old!” Aiediel Jamal said on Facebook.

Terengganu Youth, Sports and Human Resources Committee chairman Datuk Rozi Mamat confirmed that Mat Over was invited yesterday evening as the host for “Santai Bersama Mat Over”, adding that the programme was planned before the scuffle took place.

“Mat Over is a local and he has always been invited for all kinds of ceremonies,” said Rozi when interviewed yesterday.

Was Mat Over trying to revive his career?

May 21, 2017

The actor made a brief escape from obscurity to be Najib’s champion.

COMMENT
.
z11.jpg

Actor Sulaiman Yassin aka Mat Over gave the worst performance of his career when he slapped film director David Teo in public last Wednesday at a Transformasi Nasional dialogue hosted by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

Sulaiman claimed that slapping Yeo was not extreme behaviour. He said Yeo had behaved badly and shown disrespect towards Najib and he wanted to teach him some manners.

The irony is lost on Sulaiman. Slapping someone, whether it is in public or behind closed doors, is not exactly the height of good manners.
.
However, Mat Over was the man in the spotlight, although not for good acting. He made a brief escape from obscurity to be Najib’s champion.

Someone who is unashamedly violent in public must have serious anger management issues. He reveals that he is unable to conduct himself in public and it gives an insight into his upbringing.

A film critic who prefers to remain anonymous said: “Usually, actors who show this extreme behaviour do it for one reason only. Their careers are flagging, and they can get little work. So they wait for an occasion to do something extraordinary, to gain maximum publicity. If you ask me, Sulaiman did this to to get attention. It is as simple as that.

“Sadly, many actors have egos they cannot control. They are used to being in the limelight. Mat Over’s 10 seconds of fame on Wednesday night was beamed all over Malaysia and, guess what, he is back in the news. It boils down to ego. He feels wanted and loved again.”

Another observer said: “When this apparition appeared from the other side of the central platform, and hurtled towards Yeo, the security men should have sensed that something was amiss. They should have jumped to prevent anything untoward. What if the individual was going to have a go at Najib? The security detail was clearly incompetent.”

Perak: Plastic Ban from 1 June 2017?

In 2016, the State government announced the ban the use of plastic bags and polystyrene containers from 1 June 2017.

https://thecoverage.my/news/perak-soon-to-ban-plastic-bags-usage-throughout-the-state-for-seven-days-a-week/

20 May 2017

State environment and green technology committee chairman Datuk Dr Muhammad Amin Zakaria said he would be holding a press conference on the matter soon.

Perak traders unsure of plastic bag ban

z7.jpg

IPOH, May 20 — Stakeholders are unsure of the move to ban the use of plastic bags and polystyrene containers, which will be introduced on June 1.

With less than two weeks to go, they said they are in the dark about how the ban will be carried out and how it will affect them.

When the ban was announced in mid-2016, authorities said it would be implemented in stages.

From last June, state government offices and cafeterias were banned from using those items every Friday.

Since January, those items were banned completely in government premises.

Next the initiative will come into effect across the state to include hypermarkets and commercial premises.

.
An economy rice shop operator, who declined to be named, said an official had visited her shop recently.

“He told us we will be fined up to RM20,000 if we are found using plastic bags and polystyrene containers in our premises from June 1,” she said.

Johnson Phoon, the Perak branch chairman of the Malaysian Plastics Manufacturers Association, said the association is opposed to the move despite meeting with the authorities a few months ago.

“Similar bans have been implemented in other states and I was told the use of large garbage bags have increased because people still need to use them to dispose off their trash.

“In the end, people still use plastic bags. The difference is now the bags are bigger. This is why we disagree with the ban,” he said.

JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM –  Kapitra Ampera, lawyer of Grand Imam of Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) Habib Rizieq Shihab thanked the police for waiting for Habib Rizieq’s visa to Saudi visit expired. After that, the police will be able to check Habib Rizieq in a nasty chat allegation case via WhatsApp he has done with Firza Husein.

Jakarta Metro Police did choose to wait for Habib Rizieq’s visa permission in Saudi Arabia expired.

Habib Rizieq Gathers Saudi Arabian Lawyers to Deal with His Case

JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM – Sugito Atmo Pawiro, lawyer of the Grand Imam of the Islamic Defender front (FPI) Habib Rizieq Shihab, denied that his client was said to avoid the legal process of allegedly suspected cases of pornographic chat.

“He is not avoiding legal process, instead formulating a strategy to face the case that he considers as slander,” said Sugito in Jakarta, Sunday (05/21/2017).

Although Habib Rizieq is said to remain in Saudi Arabia, Sugito does not reveal the certainty of Habib Rizieq’s return to Indonesia.

Is FPI’s Rizieq Shihab a threat?

za.jpg

The leader of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), Habib Rizieq (right).

Should Malaysians be worried that the controversial Indonesian cleric appears to have spent time here recently?

THERE’S no escaping the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) when discussing Indonesian politics.

On Monday, I had breakfast with Indonesian Andreas Harsono of Human Rights Watch at Shaaz Curry House in Bandar Sunway.

We were chatting about Ahok (the nickname of jailed Jakarta go­­vernor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama), blasphemy, a pornography case involving a firebrand Indonesian and the rise of radical Islamism, and inevitably, FPI was mentioned.

For those not familiar with FPI, which was founded by firebrand cleric Rizieq Shihab (pic) in 1998, here’s its curriculum vitae.

> FPI is the face of hardline Islam in Indonesia;

> FPI raided bars selling alcohol during Ramadan;

> FPI protested against the Miss World beauty pageant in Indonesia;

> FPI forced the cancellation of “devil’s messenger” Lady Gaga’s concert; and

> FPI organised mass rallies against Ahok for allegedly insulting Islam.

.

There are reports that Rizieq and some members of his family flew in from Saudi Arabia to Kuala Lumpur International Airport on May 5. And he left with Zakir Naik for Saudi Arabia on May 13.

The 52-year-old firebrand is fami­liar with Malaysia. In 2008, he earned a Masters degree in Syariah law from the International Islamic University Malaysia in Nilai, Negri Sembilan. In 2012, he was admitted to a Dakwah and Management programme at the same university.

Rizieq is believed to have been invited by a Malaysian political party to share his experience and opinion on Indonesian politics, especially on how the Islamism movement brought down Ahok.

“They will use the playbook FPI used against Ahok in Malaysia,” a political ob­­ser­ver familiar with Malaysian and Indonesian politics told me.
.
“If someone powerful and once popular like Ahok could be jailed for blasphemy, who is next?”

Andreas warned that this could happen in Malaysia.

“But why do Malaysians need to worry that Rizieq is advising Malay­sian politicians?” I repeated.

“Because he is smart, having effective rhetoric. He knows how to play politics and to use Islamic rhe­toric,” he said.

Facial recognition analysis confirms identity of naked woman in sex chat with Indonesian Islamic leader
.

zx.jpg

JAKARTA – The Indonesian National Police has said that a facial recognition analysis has confirmed that a naked woman who appeared in sex chats allegedly involving Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) leader Rizieq Shihab is female activist Firza Husein.

Hery Cahyono, a face recognition expert from the police’s Indonesia Automatic Fingerprints Identification System (Inafis) division, said the authorities used several methods, including biometrics, to check whether the woman who appeared in the sex chats was really Firza.

He said the police compared pictures of the female activist when she was arrested over an alleged plot against the government on Feb 4 with her suspected pictures in the WhatsApp conversation.

Hery said the team also used a bio-finder method, during which they checked Ms Firza’s naked pictures in the WhatsApp conversations and her pictures on her ID card and in the Home Ministry’s e-ID database.

“The automatic algorithm system shows that all those pictures match. The system would refuse to (report a match) if the pictures were from two different people,” Hery said as quoted by kompas.com on Tuesday.

Investigators have charged her under the 2008 Pornography Law, which carries a maximum sentence of six years’ imprisonment, for allegedly sharing pornographic material in WhatsApp chats between her and firebrand cleric Rizieq Shihab.

Firza was named a suspect after undergoing 12 hours of questioning at the office of the Jakarta Police’s special crimes unit on Tuesday.

Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono said the police had obtained enough evidence to name Firza a suspect.

“We have evidence consisting of a police report, statements from regular and expert witnesses and of course physical evidence,” Argo said after the questioning session.

Investigators of the National Police’s Indonesia Automatic Fingerprints Identification System (INAFIS) confirmed on Monday that nude pictures posted in a WhatsApp chat belonged to Firza.

“Tomorrow [Wednesday], we will question her again as a suspect,” said Argo.

Meanwhile, investigators have yet to question Rizieq, who failed to fulfil two summons to be questioned as a witness in the case.

The police said on Tuesday that Rizieq was located in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Film director, assaulted in front of the PM during TN50 dialogue, now face the wrath of UMNO goons.

A slap is never ‘just a slap’

There can be hard hitting implications when it comes to the law.

Is it a crime to slap a person?
.

But what happens if you slap a person who is not a child whom you have no authority over?

Then there is a definition called “Hurt” under the Penal Code article 319: Whoever causes bodily pain, disease or infirmity to any person is said to cause hurt.
.
In the incident at the National Transformation 2050 (TN50) dialogue with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Wednesday, May 17, it has been clearly established by numerous videos that comedian-actor Sulaiman Yassin walked from his seat many rows away from the stage to deliver a slap to movie producer David Teo. He ended up hitting Teo’s left arm.

Sulaiman claims he was motivated to teach Teo a lesson because he was incensed by what he perceived to be Teo’s disrespectful behaviour in Najib’s presence. Teo had loudly criticised forum moderator Datuk Rosyam Nor for not giving a chance for other attendees not in the front rows to speak.

Rosyam then allowed Teo to speak and as the latter started reciting his pantun, Sulaiman hit him.

While it sounds very commendable for a person to want to protect another person, be it a national leader or one’s offspring, can this justify an act of violence?
.

Immediately after the TN50 forum incident, it was reported that Najib made Teo and Sulaiman shake hands but Sulaiman maintains he has no regrets in his action.

Police are now investigating because two reports were lodged.

Putrajaya OCPD Asst Comm Rosly Hassan said even though both sides had made peace, the police were obligated to investigate under the Penal Code for causing hurt.

David Teo: How many times must I apologise?

 

PETALING JAYA: Film producer David Teo is exasperated at being repeatedly asked to apologise over an incident at a National Transformation 2050 dialogue on Wednesday, which was hosted by Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Teo, who was slapped by an actor at the gathering, said he had apologised to Najib over the brief scuffle that followed the attack.

“I don’t know how many times they want me to apologise and to whom – the public or the person who slapped me?” he said in an interview with FMT. “I’ve already apologised to the prime minister. That’s enough lah.

“Saying sorry once is more meaningful than saying it ten times.”

Demands for an apology have come from several Malay NGOs who accused Teo of rude behaviour in the presence of the prime minister.

Teo is the CEO of Metrowealth Pictures. The Television Producers Association of Malaysia (PTVM), of which he is a member, tendered a public apology on his behalf yesterday.

PTVM president Jurey Latiff Rosli said he was sure that Teo had no intention of being rude during the event.

Teo said PTVM decided on its own to make the apology. He said he did not need anyone to apologise on his behalf.

Slapping incident: PVTM apologises on behalf of David Teo

KUALA LUMPUR: The Television Producers Association of Malaysia (PTVM) today apologised on behalf of its member, David Teo, for allegedly being rude during the National Transformation 2050 (TN50) dialogue attended by the prime minister last night.

PTVM president Datuk Jurey Latiff Rosli said he was confident that Teo who is Metroweatlh (MIG) Sdn Bhd chief executive officer, who was slapped by an actor, had no intention to be rude or destructive during the event.
.
He also rubbished claims by Mohd Ali Baharom, better known as Ali Tinju, that he was hired by some “irresponsible politicians” to disrupt the event, saying this was untrue.

He told FMT that he would consider taking legal action against Ali Tinju, but would consult with legal experts before deciding on the next course of action.

“I have no political background or ties to any political parties. I’m just a businessman.”
.

To those who accused him of being rude to Najib, Teo said they should watch the video of the incident carefully before making such allegations.

He said he had been speaking to Rosyam when Sulaiman came and slapped him.

“I hadn’t even begun to address the prime minister at the time,” he added.

Police opens investigation into TN50 scuffle
.

PUTRAJAYA: Police will begin an investigation into the scuffle which broke out during the National Transformation (TN50) Dialogue Session with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak at Seri Perdana yesterday.

Putrajaya Police chief ACP Rosly Hasan said two police reports were made today on the incident; one by a civilian in Pudu and the other, by the police.

“The police have decided to make a report to initiative an investigation into the case after numerous viral messages, photos and videos were widely circulated on media social on the issue. However, the affected individuals did not come forward to report the incident.

“The second report, on the other hand, was made by a civilian in Pudu this afternoon on his dissatisfaction over incident, which is deemed to have disrespected the prime minister,” he told reporters during a press conference today.

Rosly said the police will meet with the deputy public prosecutor tomorrow to get an order to open an investigation paper on the case.

“Upon receiving the order, we will call up the three main people involved in the incident to record their statements along with several other witnesses who present at the event,” he added.

Ali Tinju claims DAP likely hired Teo to disrupt Najib’s event
.

KUALA LUMPUR: Mohd Ali Baharom, better known as Ali Tinju, has placed the blame for last night’s scuffle between two local artistes on DAP.

The president of Pertubuhan Pembela Nasib Melayu (Pembela) claimed that Metrowealth Pictures film producer and CEO David Teo was paid by DAP to create a ruckus at the National Transformation 2050 (TN50) dialogue with Prime Minister Najib Razak.

He also accused Teo of being DAP’s stooge in the party’s attempt to embarrass Najib in public.

“I’m sure and I read on Facebook and WhatsApp that there are those who say Teo is DAP’s stooge.

“I want to question Teo’s attendance (at the dialogue). This is because he appears to have been hired by irresponsible politicians like Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Muhyiddin Yassin and maybe by DAP leaders.

“Maybe he was paid, or else he wouldn’t have acted that way.

“In fact, we see Teo as always causing problems for the Malays and being rude to the Malays.”

Ali Tinju was referring to a previous incident where Teo had belittled legendary artiste, the late P Ramlee, saying the actor had died penniless.

Apologise or face protest, Malay NGO group tells film director

zdd.jpg

A group of Malay NGOs have demanded that film director David Teo apologises publicly, and on a live presentation, to all Malaysians for being rude at an event attended by the prime minister.

Teo’s failure to do so within three days, Gabungan Memertabatkan Pejuang Negara (GMPN) president Major (Rtd) Razali Zakaria said, the group would mobilise a protest against him.

“I want him to apologise officially to all Malaysians and do it live,” Razali told the media outside Teo’s office in PJS5, Petaling Jaya, this afternoon.

This is despite Teo having apologised to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak yesterday.

“If he refuses to do so, then his apology (last night) was not sincere, merely a lip service,” added Razali, who was accompanied by five represetatives from five GMPN member NGOs.

He went on to congratulate comedian Sulaiman Yassin, also known as Mat Over, for stopping Teo’s speech by taking swift action.
.

Razali also demanded to see Teo at his office to seek his clarification, but left when told that he was not in the office.

Filmmaker David Teo denies being rude to PM (VIDEO)

KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 — Film producer Datuk David Teo denied today that he was rude to the prime minister at a National Transformation 2050 (TN50) dialogue, clarifying that he was speaking to the moderator.

Teo also told Star Online that he has forgiven actor Sulaiman Yassin, better known as Mat Over, for slapping him in front of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak while Teo was speaking at the forum.

“It was not my intention to be rude to the prime minister. I just told Rosyam some of the participants were not given equal chance (to talk),” Teo, who is Metrowealth Pictures (MIG) CEO, was quoted saying, referring to the dialogue moderator Datuk Rosyam Nor.

“I have yet to talk to the prime minister. So I have no problem with anybody. How can I be rude to the prime minister?” he added.

Teo reportedly said he told Najib that he did not see it coming.

“I also told the prime minister that I forgive him (Sulaiman), when I shook the prime minister’s hands,” he was quoted saying.

Groups to protest against director slapped in front of PM

By Kamles Kumar

KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 — Several non-governmental groups are organising a protest outside Datuk David Teo’s Metrowealth Pictures (MiG) today over his behaviour during a National Transformation 2050 (TN50) session last night.

Despite Teo being the recipient of a slap from an actor, the groups are targeting him for his conduct that purportedly prompted actor Sulaiman Yassin to slap him directly in front of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

According to the obscure GMPN group that is organising the protest this afternoon, organisations that have confirmed their attendance include the Red Shirts Movement and Kelab Artis 1Malaysia.

“We want this to be a lesson to all Malaysians. You can’t be rude to the PM and get away with it. We don’t want this incident to repeat,” GMPN head Major Razali Zakaria told Malay Mail Online.

“We condemn his actions. He should issue a proper open apology to all, yesterday’s apology was just lip service.”

Razali said Teo should also be stripped of his honorary rank of major in the paramilitary People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela).

PKR: Najib wrong in not condemning assault on David Teo
.

PETALING JAYA: A PKR lawmaker criticised Prime Minister Najib Razak’s lack of condemnation for an assault which occurred in front of him and also disrupted the TN50 dialogue in Seri Perdana yesterday.
.

“It is shocking and unacceptable that the Prime Minister of Malaysia, having witnessed at close quarters this act of criminal violence, said nothing to condemn or disapprove of the assault to the audience present.
.

What shocked the PKR vice-president further was the nonchalance with which Najib wanted the event to proceed just after the incident.

“Najib can be heard saying in the aftermath of this violent assault, ‘shift it to somebody else’,” Surendran said.

He also took the prime minister to task for asking Teo and his attacker to shake hands to resolve the matter.

“When a criminal act has taken place, neither the PM nor anyone else has any business trying to settle the matter between them.
.
“The attacker has, in full view of TV cameras, committed criminal offences for which he can be charged under Sections 351 and 321 of the Penal Code. These offences are respectively, assault and voluntarily causing hurt.”

Surendran also urged the Inspector-General of Police to direct an immediate investigation into the incident, especially because the identity of the perpetrator can clearly be established from the video recordings of the incident.

KUALA LUMPUR: “I don’t think what I did was too extreme. It was done to teach him some manners.”

That was the frank admission by actor/comedian Sulaiman Yassin, over him slapping film director David Teo during a National Transformation 2050 (TN50) event in front of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak at Seri Perdana, last night, reported Harian Metro.

“I don’t think it was extreme as it was to teach him some ‘adab’ (manners) especially when in front of a leader who is also the host of the event.

“I have no regrets as David’s attitude was disrespectful towards the prime minister and (Datuk) Rosyam Nor as the moderator. As a Malaysian, we should by rights have manners and respect,” said Sulaiman, also known as Mat Over.

The incident was sparked when Teo appeared to question the manner in which Rosyam handled the session, and claimed that Rosyam was not giving an equal chance for everyone to voice their views.

The programme, aired live on Facebook, saw Rosyam chide Teo, who was deemed as being disrespectful towards the prime minister.

Rosyam then gave way to Teo to air his thoughts, and the film director began to recite a poem.

However, before Teo could finish, Sulaiman appeared on the scene and slapped Teo.

Film director assaulted in front of PM during TN50 dialogue

Slap and kick drama in front of PM at TN50 dialogue

Film director David Teo was attacked in front of Najib Abdul Razak during a Transformasi Nasional 50 (TN50) dialogue session at the prime minister’s official residence in Putrajaya tonight.

During the special TN50 dialogue for the entertainment industry, Teo had complained that Najib, who stood on a circular podium, was only taking questions from one side of the banquet hall.

The emcee, fellow director, and actor Rosyam Nor, then told Teo (photo) that he should “behave” and use his one minute to provide ideas.

Despite Teo’s boisterous response, the prime minister smiled throughout and gestured for him to ask his question.

Teo then concurred and began his question.

However, a man was seen walking from the back to the front of the hall while pointing at Teo.

He was heard saying “don’t be rude in front of the prime minister” before lunging at Teo, who was only a short distance away from the prime minister.

The incident was carried live on Najib’s Facebook but was not republished.

According to another video from within the audience which provided a different angle, the man who had approached Teo was comedian Sulaiman Yassin, better known as “Mat Over”.

Sulaiman was seen delivering a slap at Teo.

However, the slap landed on the left hand of Teo’s, who saw him coming and had tried to parry the attack.

A struggle then ensued and Teo subsequently tried to kick Sulaiman away.

The audience and security personnel quickly intervened to separate the two.

Attacking Hannah Yeoh, Malaysia’s First Woman State Speaker, 6th most influential woman in Malaysia…

Hannah Yeoh, Malaysia’s First Woman State Speaker, the 6th most influential woman in Malaysia.

Universiti Utara Malaysia lecturer Kamarul Zaman Yusof lodged a police report against her this morning, claiming she had breached Selangor enactments by proselytising to Muslims through through the book, ‘Becoming HANNAH’.

..

Yeoh has lodged a police report against Kamarul Zaman for allegedly defaming her and DAP by using the book, published in January 2015, to claim the party has a “Christian agenda”.

The Amanah leader also said he found no elements of proselytisation as alleged by Universiti Utara Malaysia senior lecturer Kamarul ZamanYusoff.

. Mujahid finishes reading ‘s book, remains a devout Muslim
.

Following the controversy surrounding DAP assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh’s book, Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) vice-president Mujahid Yusof Rawa decided to get a copy for himself.

“Just picked up at Pos Laju Parit Buntar. I will finish reading tonite.

“Hope I am still a Muslim by tomorrow, better,” Mujahid quipped in a Twitter post, which featured him holding the book, over the weekend.

His remarks came in response to claims that the book titled ‘Becoming Hannah: A Personal Journey’ contained elements of proselytisation.

Mujahid said he has since finished reading the book, and continues to be a devout Muslim.

Speaking to Malaysiakini, the Parit Buntar MP said he finished reading the book last night and found that it was similar to what he wrote in 2010, titled ‘Aren’t we all Malaysian’.

Mujahid said while he chose a different subject to illustrate his views, Yeoh, on the other hand, picked a divine theme.

“Anyone can write, based on any theme they choose.Yeoh brought the theme of God and talked about how God had helped her and so forth.

“People of all faiths can have a similar experience based on their different beliefs and interpretations of God,” he added.

No shame in walking with God, says Yeoh

Faced with allegations of proselytisation, Subang Jaya assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh said she will not hide her faith and how it has helped her in her work.

“My walk with God is genuine and I have told my personal story as it is in “Becoming Hannah”. Without Him, I am nothing and I am not ashamed to say it,” the Selangor speaker said when contacted.

Universiti Utara Malaysia lecturer Kamarul Zaman Yusof lodged a police report against her this morning, claiming she had breached Selangor enactments by proselytising to Muslims through the book, where she speaks of her faith and its role in her political journey.

However, Yeoh, who is the nation’s first woman state assembly speaker, said her faith has actually helped her fulfill her role with integrity.

“When I fear God, I will be diligent in my work and not steal the people’s money. I will not be corrupt because God watches,” she said.

Lecturer lodges report, accuses Yeoh of proselytisation

Universiti Utara Malaysia lecturer Kamarul Zaman Yusuf has today lodged a police report against Selangor speaker Hannah Yeoh for allegedly driving a “Christian agenda”.

In his report lodged at the Changlun police station, the political science lecturer said Yeoh did so through her book “Becoming Hannah: A Personal Journey by Hannah Yeoh” published on January 2015.

“I was shocked to find that this book contained parables and excerpts from the Bible. I believe this book is an attempt to persuade, influence or incite non-Christians including Muslims to embrace Christianity or become inclined towards Christianity,” he said in his police report.

His said this breaches Section 4(1)(a) of Selangor’s Non-Islamic Religions (Control of Propagation Amongst Muslims) Enactment 1998 which bars proselytisation to Muslims.

According to the Enactment, a person commits an offence if he persuades, influences or incites a Muslim to “be inclined” or “become a follower or a member” of non-Islamic religion or to “forsake or disfavour” Islam.

Kamarul Zaman said Yeoh might have also breached Section 298(A)(1) of the Penal Code for causing disharmony on religious grounds.

However, lawyer Syahredzan Johan said Kamarul Zaman’s logic is flawed and his police report malicious.

“The person who lodged the police report against Hannah Yeoh over what she wrote in that book has ill intentions to cause religious discontent,” he said on Twitter.

“What is wrong with drawing strength from one’s faith to be in politics? Or is only PAS members allowed to do that?” he asked.

What’s wrong with Yeoh being Christian, asks Amanah

N Faizal Ghazali

Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) today defended DAP’s Subang Jaya asssemblyperson, following allegations that she is proselytising Muslims through her book “Becoming Hannah”.

“To me, Hannah Yeoh is a Christian person who wants to do good and to show the positive values in the religion she follows.

“Just like those of other faiths, be they Buddhists, Sikhs, Hindus and even Muslims. I am sure all religions teach their followers universal values which are good,” Amanah deputy president Salahuddin Ayub told reporters in Kuala Lumpur today.

He added that Yeoh did not do any wrong when she articulated how her faith has given her values which she practices as an elected representative.

Universiti Utara Malaysia lecturer Kamarul Zaman Yusoff today lodged a police report alleging that the Selangor speaker’s book had breached the enactment barring the proselytisation of non-Islamic religions to Muslims.

He said by speaking about her journey in terms of her faith and referring to herself as an “ambassador of God”, Yeoh was trying to encourage Muslims towards Christianity.

However, Salahuddin said her actions only showed that she is a good Christian and that her faith has driven her to be a politician with integrity.

“We must be fair to her by looking at how she has performed as an assemblyperson, a speaker and a politician,” he said at the Amanah headquarters.

He added that Yeoh has the freedom of religion as enshrined in the Federal Constitution.

“Islam as a religion too celebrates and acknowledges the rights of those of different faiths to practice their religion peacefully,” he said.
