DAP launches three campaigns – Post-Malaysia Generation Movement, Batu Sumpah Awareness Campaign and Mass Signature Campaign to demand immediate publication of Royal Commission of Inquiry Report on Illegal Immigrants in Sabah

DAP launches three campaigns – Post-Malaysia Generation Movement, Batu Sumpah Awareness Campaign and Mass Signature Campaign to demand immediate publication of Royal Commission of Inquiry Report on Illegal Immigrants in Sabah

DAP launched three campaigns in Keningau yesterday, viz:
*Batu Sumpah Awareness campaign;
*Mass Signature Campaign to demand immediate publication of Royal Commission of Inquiry Report on Illegal Immigrants in Sabah; and
*Post-Malaysia Generation Movement.

1. Batu Sumpah Awareness Campaign
Czech writer Milan Kundera’s famous quote “The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting” is good reason for the DAP launching the Batu Sumpah Awareness Campaign.
Seven months before the 13th General Elections in May 2013, I spoke at length during my speech on the 2013 Budget in Parliament on October 4, 2012 on the Keningau Batu Sumpah and the three commitments of “Ugama Bebas Dalam Sabah”, “Tanah Tanah dalam Sabah di kuasai oleh Kerajaan Sabah” and “Adat Istiadat anak rayat Sabah dihormatkan dan dipelihara oleh Kerajaan” engraved on the Keningau Oath Stone.
I called on all Members of Parliament, whether Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat, whether in Sabah, Sarawak or Peninsular Malaysia, to support a Royal Commission of Inquiry to assess whether the dreams and aspirations of Sabahans and Sarawakians in forming Malaysia had been fulfilled or betrayed in the past five decades.
Although my call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry stemming from Batu Sumpah Keningau fell on deaf ears in October 2012, as there was no support or response from the Barisan Nasional MPs, whether Sabah, Sarawak or Peninsular Malaysia to examine whether the terms of the oath of loyalty of the Sabahans from the interior five decades ago in exchange for support for the formation of Malaysia, as solemnly carved in perpetuity in Batu Sumpah Keningau, had been honoured, this remains a live issue and with the passage of time, an ever more focussed aspiration of the people of Sabah.
This is the rationale for the launching of a Batu Sumpah Keningau Campaign to canvas for greater awareness of the rights and expectations of the people of Sabah when Malaysia was formed 51 years ago and for support for a Royal Commission of Inquiry to assess whether the dreams and aspirations of Sabahans (and Sarawakians) in forming Malaysia had been fulfilled or betrayed in the past five decades.
I have said Sabah students are ignorant of the three most historic events in Sabah in the past five decades as they are not in the school history books, viz:
1.20-Points and Batu Sumpah Keningau;
2.The ’666′ tragedy of 1976 which changed the course of history, not only in Sabah but also in Malaysia; and
3.Million illegal immigrants who were unlawfully and unconstitutionally given citizenship/voter status through illegal scams like Project Mahathir, undermining Sabah and Malaysia.
The Batu Sumpah Keningau campaign will be to restore both history and memory to the people of Sabah.
Before the launching of the DAP Batu Sumpah Awareness Campaign in Keningau yesterday, there was an earlier programme for the annual ritual ceremony for Batu Sampah scheduled in the Keningau District Office compound which housed the Batu Sumpah.
But the Keningau District Office compound gates were locked, preventing public access to the Batu Sumpah and therefore annual ritual ceremony for the Batu Sumpah from being performed.
This is most unusual as permission had earlier been granted for the annual ritual ceremony for Batu Sumpah to be performed, but this permission was withdrawn when the authorities learned that I would be present.
I am flattered by such attention but regret that I had caused the annual ritual ceremony for Batu Sumpah from being performed in its proper place.
However, there is more than a silver lining for every cloud, for the outrageous lock-up of Batu Sumpah in the Keningau District Office compound inspired a most creative and innovative response from the Orang Asal NGOs slated to organise the annual ritual ceremony.
As a result of discussion and consultation with Orang Asal NGOs and elders of the community, the very creative response to the lock-up of the Batu Sumpah in the Keningau District Office compound was to produce within 24 hours a replica of Batu Sumpah with the three inscriptions so that the ritual ceremony could be performed, just outside the Keningau District Office grounds.
This has given rise to another creative and innovative idea, especially for the Batu Sumpah Awareness Campaign – to replicate Batu Sumpah Keningau in every kampung in Sabah, which will be quite a fantastic method to spread the Batu Campaign Awareness Campaign.
If the Batu Sumpah Keningau is replicated in every kampung in Sabah, a great “thank you” is owed to those responsible for the unfair and high-handed decision to lock up the Keningau District Office compound to prevent public access to the Batu Sumpah thinking this could sabotage the holding of the annual ritual ceremony for Batu Sumpah.
The Chairman of the DAP Batu Sumpah Awareness Campaign is Peter Saili, a former political secretary who has retired from politics for more than ten years, and other officials are Vice Chairman, Nooritha Saul and Secretary, Marius Felix.
Two Keningau Declarations were also issued yesterday – one by by Orang Asal NGOs at the Batu Sumpah ritual ceremony and the other by the DAP Batu Sumpah Awareness Movement.
The Keningau Declaration of Orang Asal NGOs expands the three basic demands in Batu Sumpah to seven, viz: Kelestarian Alam Sekitar, Pemerintahan Yang Baik, Kemajuan Ekonomi and Integriti Pendidikan.
The DAP Keningau Declaration called for a Royal Commission of Inquiry to assess whether the dreams and aspirations of Sabahans and Sarawakians in forming Malaysia had been fulfilled or betrayed in the past five decades.
DAP MPs/SAs will articulate and highlight the two Keningau Declarations – of the Orang Asal NGOs and the DAP Batu Sumpah Awareness Movement in the Sabah State Assembly and Parliament to canvass support from all MPs/SAs for justice for Sabah.
2. Mass Signature Campaign for immediate publication of Report of RCI on Illegal Immigrants in Sabah
The campaign for mass signatures for the immediate publication of the Report of the Royal Commission of Inquiry into Illegal Immigrants in Sabah is headed by DAP Sabah State Secretary Dr. Edwin Bosi.
Is there any reason why the Report of the RCI cannot be made public before Malaysia Day on Sept. 16?
The Cobbold Commission on the formation of Malaysia took less than seven months in 1962 to publish its report from its first appointment in January 1962. Why is the RCI on Illegal Immigrants in Sabah taking more than two-and-a-half years from the Cabinet decision in Feb. 2012 for its establishment, and still unable to have the Report made public?
3. Movement of Post-Malaysia Generation to take over political leadership
The third campaign launched yesterday is the Post-Malaysia Generation Movement of DAP Sabah for the young generation of Sabahans born after September 16, 1963 to take over the political leadership.
The participation of the DAP candidate for the Teluk Intan by-election Dyana Sofya in the Keningau programme is symbolic of the new generation of young Malaysians who should be assuming leadership responsibilities in Sabah and Malaysia whether in politics or other spheres of activities.
According to Statistics Department, in 2014, out of a populationn of 3.54 million inn Sabah, 88% or 3.12 million were born after 1963.
This is therefore a great challenge and the chairman of the DAP Sabah Post-Malaysia Generation Movement is outstanding Sabah social activist for over a decade Adrian Lasimbang, who will lead the campaign.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SABAH RCI ON ILLEGALS? Reveal findings - Sabah leaders rap Putrajaya 




Sabah opposition lawmakers today demanded that Putrajaya make public the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) report on illegal immigrants in the state that was submitted to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong two months ago.
They said that the restructuring of the Eastern Sabah Security Command (Esscomm), as announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak this morning, was not enough without a solution to the problem of illegal immigrants in the state.
"We want Najib to make known the content of the RCI report to the public. We have been waiting for two months," Bingkor assemblyman Jeffrey Kitingan told The Malaysian Insider.
Kitingan, who is also Sabah Star party chief, said the RCI would be meaningless without action and a solution to the "Project IC" problem.
He said Naib's announcement today to restructure Esscomm would also be futile if the influx of illegals was not addressed.

Dr M
"In fact, it is the federal government who have made us insecure by helping Muslims in the Southern Philippines with weapons, shelter and Malaysian identity cards in exchange for their votes," he said.
Kitingan added that Putrajaya was only using Sabah as their political playground in order to control the state and its resources.
Tamparuli assemblyman Datuk Seri Wilfred M. Bumburing said he would push for the report to be tabled in the Sabah State Legislative Assembly next week.
"The people of Sabah have a right to know about the sudden and dramatic increase in the population and what the government plans to do to resolve this perennial problem," he said.
The Angkatan Perubahan Sabah president said he was aware of security issues which may warrant some facts not to be disclosed in its totality.
"Generally we want to know whether or not the problem of foreigners having been issued with MyKad through questionable methods will be resolved.
"And the problem of state and national security, sovereignty and true independence for Sabahans in the context of Malaysia will be honoured and upheld," he added.
Bumburing, who was Upko deputy president but left the Barisan Nasional component party just before the 13th general election, said he was very certain that the memorandum he had presented to the Home Ministry was true and justified.
The former Tuaran MP had called for the home ministry to nullify all MyKad issued dubiously.
DAP Sabah vice-chairman Chan Foong Hin also urged the prime minister to release the findings of the RCI immediately and table it for debate in the coming parliament session and Sabah state assembly sitting.
Chan said the restructuring of Esscom alone would not guarantee Sabahans their safety.
"Stern action to clean up the problem of illegal immigrants with MyKad is the test for our government to prove its political will," he said.
RCI chairman Tan Sri Steve Shim Lip Kiong, who is a former chief judge of Sabah and Sarawak, had said it was up to the government to decide on the report.

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim
“All I can say is, the public will know when the report is released,” he said after leading the RCI panel on a courtesy call to the Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin at Istana Negeri in Kota Kinabalu on May 19.
The Commission which was set up on September 21, 2012, called 211 witnesses in the proceedings which ended on Septemer 20 last year.
Among the notable witnesses were former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and former Chief Ministers of Sabah, including Datuk Harris Salleh and Datuk Seri Joseph Pairin Kitingan.
Najib announced on June 1, 2012, that Putrajaya had agreed to set up the RCI to investigate problems related to illegal immigrants in Sabah, including the issuance of Malaysian documents to Muslim illegal immigrants under a scheme known as Project IC. –TMI

Majority of voters unhappy with ‘Project IC’ as Sabah RCI continues 





Majority of voters unhappy with ‘Project IC’ as Sabah RCI continues

By Debra Chong
Assistant News Editor
February 26, 2013
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 26 – Nearly nine out of 10 voters disagree with Putrajaya’s past moves in granting citizenship to Indonesians and Filipinos to live and vote in Sabah, according to the latest voter survey amid an ongoing royal investigation into the flood of foreigners there for the past 20 years.
Independent pollster Merdeka Center For Opinion Research, which surveyed 1,021 voters in Peninsular Malaysia at the end of January, reported today 86 per cent saying they disagreed with the government’s past action that has seen the foreign population boom in the Borneo state and earned it the moniker “Project IC”.
The survey also found 60 per cent of voters saying they believed a large number of foreigners were still getting the blue-coloured identity cards marking their status as citizens.
The longstanding issue of illegal immigrants that has continued unchecked for decades has turned emotive among Sabah natives like the Kadazandusun and Murut communities, many of whom feel that the state has been robbed of its sovereignty through the massive influx of foreigners from neighbouring Philippines and Indonesia.
More than a quarter of Sabah’s population are foreigners, totalling a staggering 889,000 out of the 3.2 million-strong population in Sabah, or about 28 per cent, based on a 2010 census.
Sabah has 926,638 voters, according to a June report in English-language daily The Star.
The large number of foreigners has also worried Sabah natives, who often blame them for the rise in crime and for stealing job opportunities.
More than 100 armed Filipino gunmen intruded into Lahad Datu, claiming ties with a Sulu sultanate that gives them ownership of Sabah on February 9 and have since refused to leave.
Recognising the political significance of Sabah’s illegals problem, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had agreed to form a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) to look into it.
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s longest-serving prime minister who was in power from 1981 to 2003, has been accused of spearheading the so-called “Project IC”, in which citizenship was allegedly given to immigrants for their votes.
But former Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Harris Salleh, who administered the state from 1976 to 1985, has denied at the RCI of the existence of “Project IC”.
Dr Mahathir told a press conference last month that foreigners in Sabah had indeed received citizenship, but stressed that it was “within the law”.
The inquiry before a five-member panel led by former Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Tan Sri Steve Shim Lip Kiong resumes on March 5.
The January 23 to February 6 survey, which was funded internally by the Merdeka Center, aimed to gauge voters’ perceptions of issues in the run up to the 13th general election due soon. It had a margin error of three per cent.
The research house said the survey took place after the January 12 People’s Uprising rally backed by Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders in the national capital here as well as the ongoing media coverage of the Sabah citizenship-for-votes royal inquiry.
It noted that other issues that formed the talking point to its survey included carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan’s and former Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan’s statements controversial statements against the government, and the “Allah” religious dispute.

73,000 refugees granted entry into Sabah in the 1970s, RCI told 




January 14, 2013

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 14 — The Sabah Berjaya government had in the 1970s permitted some 73,000 Filipino refugees to settle permanently in the state provided they were Muslims or were genuinely “displaced persons”, the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on illegal immigrants was told in Kota Kinabalu today. The group, who arrived in Malaysia between 1970 and 1984, was given conditions to qualify for their migration — that they must hail from Western Mindanao and intend to stay permanently in the east Malaysian state.
According to the Chief Minister’s Department’s Settlement Unit head Abdul Jaafar Alip, who was testifying at the first day’s hearing of the RCI, the refugees need not necessarily be Muslims to reside here, but they must be genuine refugees escaping the conflict in the southern Philippines at the time.
“We accept people of any religion to be displaced people,” he told the RCI, according to Malaysiakini today.
He added that five refugee settlements were established since then — the Telipok and Kinarut settlements in Kota Kinabalu, the state’s capital, Kampung Bahagia in Sandakan, Kampung Selamat in Sempoerna and the Hidayah settlement in Tawau.
The Malaysian Insider reported last August that these refugees were later issued the IMM13 documents, a special immigration pass that allows refugees registered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) freedom of movement and employment here.
According to Abdul Jaafar, the third witness to testify today, the refugees were also given a special identity card that is not recognised by the National Registration Department (NRD).
But the officer added that the resettlement scheme was suspended in 1985 following the shift in state government from Berjaya to Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS).
Under the PBS administration, Abdul Jaafar said a statewide census was conducted to identify the number of refugees in the settlement who were later issued another document called the “temporary registration card”.
But the document was also not recognised by the NRD as an identity card.
The RCI hearing will go on until January 18 and resume from January 28 to February 1, February 22 to 27.

The issue of illegal immigrants has long turned emotive among Sabah natives like the Kadazandusun and Murut (KDM) communities, many of whom feel that the state’s sovereignty has been stolen through the continued influx of foreigners from countries like the Philippines and Indonesia. It is no secret that Sabahans are angry and want these foreigners shipped back to their home countries in one way or another. They also often blame the group for robbing them of job opportunities and for the rise in the state’s social, economic and security problems.
“Understandably, Malaysians living in Sabah feel threatened and insecure as the number of foreigners keeps increasing. Incidents of drug-related crimes, burglaries and robberies are common,” former Sabah state secretary Tan Sri Simon Sipaun once wrote in his June 18 article on Sabahkini last year.
“Gone are the days when we could leave our houses unlocked. Now they are like prisons. Things can only get worse if the demand for jobs is not met by employment opportunities,” he added.
The anger among Sabahans has festered over the past four decades and channelled towards the Barisan Nasional (BN) government, largely due to allegations that the ruling pact has been discreetly handing out citizenships to these foreigners in exchange for their votes.
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the country’s longest-serving prime minister who ruled from 1981 to 2003, has even been repeatedly accused of spearheading the initiative, known as “Projek M” or “Projek IC”.
Sabah has nearly a million registered voters ― 926,638, to be exact, according to a June report in English-language daily The Star.
Recognising the political significance of the problem, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak recently agreed to form the RCI to solve Sabah’s illegals problem.
On August 11 last year, Najib made a special trip to Sabah and announced that the panel would be given six months to investigate allegations that foreigners have been unlawfully awarded Malaysian identity cards (ICs) and included in the state’s electoral roll.
But according to the eight-point terms of reference, the panel will not identify the culprit behind the allegedly unlawful award of citizenships to foreigners, recommend any punishment or determine the reasons behind the award.
The opposition has also accused the government, largely Dr Mahathir, of arbitrarily distributing Malaysian ICs to foreigners and registering them as voters in the electoral roll, allegedly to help BN stay in power.
The panel’s terms are:
1. To investigate the number of foreigners in Sabah given blue Malaysian ICs or citizenship;
2. To investigate if the award of such ICs or citizenship were according to the law;
3. To investigate if those given blue ICs, temporary identification receipts or citizenship through unlawful means have been registered in Sabah’s electoral roll;
4. To investigate if the authorities have taken any action or made improvements to standard operating procedures (SOPs), methods and regulations to prevent any irregularities in accordance with the law;
5. To conduct a deeper probe into the SOPs, methods and regulations on the award of blue ICs or citizenships to foreigners in Sabah by taking into consideration international norms and standards that are applicable to Malaysia, and to recommend amendments or changes to improve current practices;
6. To investigate the reasons behind Sabah’s population growth according to the following categories:
a) Sabah citizens residing in the state, including those given blue ICs or citizenship through birth certificates (late registration);
b) foreign workers (including family members);
c) illegal immigrants (including family members); and
d) fugitives
and to study their impact on the number of those registered in the electoral roll;
7. To investigate the social implications on the Sabah community following the award of blue ICs or citizenship to foreigners in the state; and
8) To investigate the number of “stateless” foreigners in Sabah given blue ICs or citizenship.

Mahathir penderhaka, UMNO pengkhianat

SHAH ALAM, 24 Jan — Timbalan Presiden PKR Azmin Ali menyifatkan bekas perdana menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad sebagai “penderhaka” dan Umno sebagai “pengkhianat” sehingga menyebabkan kuasa Sultan dimansuhkan menerusi pindaan awal 1990-an.

“Kita rujuk pula kepada kenyataan-kenyataan media dan ucapan Dr Mahathir sekitar tahun 1983 dan 1993, jelas membuktikan bahawa Dr Mahathir adalah penderhaka dan Umno adalah pengkhianat,” kata beliau ketika berucap membahaskan usul pindaan perlembagaan negeri pada sidang khas Dewan Undangan Negeri hari ini.

Kata beliau, media yang dikuasai Umno digunakan untuk memaparkan cerita-cerita yang mengaibkan peribadi Raja-raja Melayu bagi mewujudkan sentimen dan emosi benci rakyat terhadap institusi Raja-raja Melayu.

“Berita Harian pada 19 Januari 1993 menyiarkan kenyataan seorang Ahli Parlimen Umno dari Perak yang mengingatkan Raja-raja supaya mengambil kira suara rakyat jika tidak Raja-raja tidak dapat kekal lama “malah takhta mereka mungkin akan beralih ke muzium . . .,” kata Azmin (gambar) lagi.

Justeru soal Azmin, siapa yang memansuhkan kuasa Sultan Selangor untuk melantik tiga pegawai selepas mempertimbangkan nasihat menteri besar.

“Pastinya, Umno telah menderhaka kepada Raja-raja Melayu. Sekali gus suara rakyat dinafikan kerana Menteri Besar adalah wakil suara rakyat majoriti yang membentuk kerajaan melalui proses demokrasi,” kata beliau.

Adun Bukit Antarabangsa ini berkata, jika direnung semula Penyata Rasmi Parlimen semasa membahaskan Rang Undang-Undang Perlembagaan (Pindaan) 1993 yang ditaja oleh Dr Mahathir, ramai pemimpin Umno yang mengeluarkan kata-kata kesat dan celupar terhadap institusi Raja-raja Melayu.

“Antaranya, seorang Ahli Parlimen Umno berkata ‘adakah Yang Berhormat hendak menuduh akhbar yang putar belit. Saya tidak. Saya hendak mengatakan raja yang putar belit, sehari bersetuju, dua hari tidak bersetuju. Ini kenyataan yang tepat, yang jelas’,” katanya.

Azmin juga mendakwa krisis Perlembagaan Persekutuan tercetus ekoran tindakan pemimpin Umno yang rakus untuk memansuhkan kekebalan Raja-raja Melayu.

Katanya, ramai sarjana dan pengamal undang-undang mencabar keabsahan pindaan 1993 kerana ia melanggar Perkara 38(4) Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang menyebut, “tiada apa-apa undang-undang yang menyentuh secara langsung keistimewaan, kedudukan, kemuliaan atau kebesaran Raja-raja boleh diluluskan dengan ketiadaan persetujuan Majlis Raja-raja”.

“Sebenarnya Umno memindahkan kekebalan tersebut kepada Mamak Bendahara dan pihak Eksekutif. Saya tahu bahawa kebimbangan ini ditimbulkan oleh pihak Raja-raja dalam tahun 1993.

“Saya dapat menyelami perasaan Raja-raja Melayu yang luka. Luka yang dalam mungkin telah sembuh, tetapi parutnya tetap ada,” katanya sambil menambah, keprihatinan Raja-raja Melayu disambut dengan rasa tanggungjawab oleh ahli-ahli Parlimen pembangkang pada ketika itu.

Azmin menambah, apa yang disebutkan oleh Ketua Pembangkang Lim Kit Siang pada 18 Januari 1993 adalah semakin jelas hari ini.

Ketika itu Lim dipetik berkata “semasa kita membahaskan soal kekebalan Raja-raja, tentang bagaimana mendemokratikkan sistem Raja Berperlembagaan, untuk memastikan Raja-raja bertanggungjawab dan Demokrasi Berparlimen, kita tidak boleh membenarkan pemimpin-pemimpin kerajaan menikmati kekebalan yang membebaskan mereka dari sebarang akauntabiliti awam sebagaimana yang dipamerkan oleh berbagai skandal yang tidak diselesaikan dalam negara ini.”

Kata Azmin, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang turut menegaskan prinsip yang sama dengan kekebalan tersirat daripada penyalahgunaan kuasa melalui Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri, Akta Rahsia Rasmi dan Perkara 145(3) Perlembagaan kuasa yang diberi kepada Peguam Negara hendaklah dielakkan.

“Kekebalan yang dinikmati oleh pemimpin-pemimpin elit Umno menjadikan Malaysia diperintah oleh diktator selama 23 tahun dengan mengamalkan undang-undang rimba dan menolak negara hukum.

“Dr. Mahathir adalah orang yang bertanggungjawab menjadikan pihak Eksekutif terlalu kebal,” katanya.

Azmin yang juga Ahli Parlimen Gombak berkata Perdana Menteri semasa Datuk Seri Najib Razak hanya meneruskan sistem yang dibina oleh Dr. Mahathir.

“Justeru itu, rasuah dan salah guna kuasa semakin berleluasa dan menjadi budaya dalam pentadbiran Umno,” katanya lagi.

Usul pindaan dibentangkan oleh Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim pagi tadi.

Fakta Sejarah : Umno lantik penderhaka jadi pemimpin

Wan Azizah: Survivor against great odds

Wan Azizah: Survivor against great odds


September 1, 2014
Her appointment as MB will bring a breath of fresh air to the jaded ranks of our male-dominated and scandal ridden political leadership.
By Koon Yew Yin
wan azizah kid300The debate around Wan Azizah Ismail’s suitability as Menteri Besar of Selangor has gone on too long.
It has gone on too long because of two main factors. One is the opposition of certain male leaders in PAS who act as though they are living in a rigid and conservative Islamic country where the role of women is to be subservient to men.
However, even in such societies as Pakistan and Bangladesh, we have seen women leaders accepted in the highest political ranks. So why is it that her selection should meet with so much resistance from PAS leaders and members and other Malays?
“Women hold up half the sky.” This is a famous proclamation made by Mao Zedong to bring gender equality to China. It applies not only to China but to all countries of the world, including Malaysia.
In fact PAS and others who are living like frogs under the coconut half-shell should realise that women hold up more of the sky than men. This is because women outnumber men in most if not all countries in the world, besides having longer life expectancies. In Malaysia women have a life expectancy of 77 years compared to men’s 73 years.
PAS should also realise that women voters outnumber males. The party can never come to power with an ideology of ketuanan lelaki, or male superiority or dominance. Malaysia may be a Muslim society but our Malay women are just as smart as men, if not more so. The proof of this is in the public universities, where Malay women form the majority of undergraduate students and consistently top the men in examinations.
The second factor is the attempt by certain quarters to provoke resistance to the replacement of Khalid Ibrahim by a Menteri Besar candidate selected by the coalition having the majority in the Selangor state government.
Thus a loud whispering campaign has been started, especially by pro-Umno and pro-BN bloggers, questioning the qualifications and suitability of Wan Azizah. “Is she really MB material?” “Will she be a proxy for Anwar Ibrahim?” “Does she have the political smarts to bring about the development of Selangor?”
To many Malaysians, though, there is little doubt that Wan Azizah has all the makings of an outstanding Menteri Besar whose appointment will bring a breath of fresh air to the jaded ranks of our male-dominated and scandal ridden political leadership.
Unlike the outgoing MB, she is not associated with hanky panky deals involving millions of ringgit but with service to society, initially as a government doctor and later as a leader of various voluntary bodies.
Not only is she seen as bersih, but she is also admired for her role in helping Anwar survive as a political leader and in building PKR to become a force in Malaysian politics.
Selangoreans and Malaysians must not forget that following the arrest of her husband on Sept 20, 1998, Wan Azizah became the leader of the fledgling Reformasi movement. She also led the Social Justice Movement (ADIL), a civil rights NGO, before helping to establish the Parti Keadilan Nasional in April 1999, which she then led as its president. The party later merged with the Parti Rakyat Malaysia and thus was born PKR, which now promises to be the party which, together with its coalition partners, will finally break the authoritarian and abusive monopoly of power that is Barisan Nasional.
There is consensus that PKR’s huge gains in the 2008 general election—winning 31 seats and becoming the largest opposition party in parliament—could not have come about if Wan Azizah had not braved and overcome the ordeal by fire that she, her husband and her colleagues were put through.
Wan Azizah has survived the tests of leadership, character, stamina and courage such as few of the country’s politicians—male or female—have experienced. This is fact.
Since Anwar’s return to active politics, Wan Azizah has retreated to a less prominent role. This is understandable, given the importance of Anwar to the political struggle to break BN’s grip on power. But she has continued in her role as President of PKR and is active in the Pakatan Rakyat party dynamics behind the scenes in ways that are not easily discernible or visible to the public.
Now that Anwar is again facing imprisonment and renewed attempts are being made to destroy his political career, Wan Azizah has to step up to the plate one more time if the reform movement in Malaysia is to succeed.
But it is not only Wan Azizah whose mettle is being tested. Malaysians, beginning with the citizens of Selangor, are also being tested. If we deny her the support she needs to take up the position of Menteri Besar, then we would only have ourselves to blame should we see a deceleration in the fight for justice, good governance and democracy in Selangor and throughout the country.

AZIZAH AS MB: Still a long way to go, snap polls a real possibility - Rafizi 







AZIZAH AS MB: Still a long way to go, snap polls a real possibility - Rafizi 



AZIZAH AS MB: Still a long way to go, snap polls a real possibility - Rafizi 


Written by Wong Choon Mei, Loukmanou Moutarou, Malaysia Chronicle

SHAH ALAM - PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli warned there was still a 'long way to go' before the Selangor crisis was resolved, and party boss Dr Wan Azizah duly installed as the chief minister or Mentri Besar to replace scandal-tainted incumbent Khalid Ibrahim.
His words are bound to disappoint supporters of Azizah, who have pinned their hopes on a speedy resolution to the political and constitutional crisis overtaking Malaysia's riches state. Many are hoping that the Sultan will confirm Azizah as the new MB, a landmark move that will make her the country's first woman chief minister.
"It is still a long way to go. We have to pass through certain stages, we are not sure yet if Khalid Ibrahim will push for dissolution," Rafizi told Malaysia Chronicle on the sidelines of the PKR annual congress.
"First, we have to wait for the sultan to summon Azizah although she has clear majority but the Sultan is going to have an audience with the previous MB so we are not sure if he will dissolve or not."

Announcement next week
Nonetheless, Rafizi - who is the architect of the 'Kajang Move' set in motion to replace Khalid with Azizah - expects a decision from the Palace by next week.
"It is difficult to say or pre-empt anything until next week. At the end of the day, the Sultan will take the views of all parties and decide, so it is difficult to pre-empt or pre-judge," he said.
Tough fight - non-Malay votes intact, Malay votes in question

When asked his opinion on how the chips would fall in the even of snap polls, Rafizi was confident Pakatan would still have the edge.
"It's going to be difficult but Pakatan will still have the edge. I think in some places it is going to be Umno which has the advantage so it will be a tough fight," Rafizi said.
"DAP has a good chance to win almost all or all their seats. It is more difficult for PKR and PAS. The non-Malay votes are intact but we will have to work harder to campaign for the Malay votes."
Sultan's prerogative

When asked if the Pakatan was being held ransom by Khalid, who was sacked by PKR earlier this month amid corruption allegations, Rafizi was tactful in his response.
"We have to be prepared for that possibility, it is one of the strong possibilities," the Pandan MP said.
Rafizi also declined to rate the chances of the Sultan endorsing Azizah, who despite commanding the support of 43 out of 56 state assemblymen faces prejudice from the conservative Muslim community as well as political sabotage from Prime Minister Najib Razak's Umno party.
"It is the prerogative of Sultan so we have to wait for the audience (for Azizah) first," Rafizi said. - Malaysia Chronicle

Lowrey denied water, legal aid upon detention

Lowrey denied water, legal aid upon detention


 | September 1, 2014
Environmental activist Lowrey treated badly by immigration officials upon detention at KLIA last night.
lowrey3002PETALING JAYA: Suaram and Himpunan Hijau have registered their unhappiness that Natalie Lowrey was denied water and legal aid for 13 hours when she was detained at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport last night.
In a joint statement today, executive director of Suaram Yap Swee Seng and chairperson of Himpunan Hijau Wong Tack confirmed this was so despite Lowrey making repeated requests to immigration officers for water.
They said that even the consular officer of the New Zealand High Commission had intervened on Lowrey’s behalf and was told by immigration they were busy processing her deportation and that she would get water “soon”.
“Obviously this is a lie as the fact was that Natalie was only given water to drink this morning,” the statement read.
The two NGOs also said they were appalled Lowrey was denied her right to legal representation the entire time she was detained.
They cited the blatant “abuse of power, inhuman and ill-treatment of Natalie Lowrey by the immigration department” and said, “Such treatment is unjustified and unwarranted and tainted with clear intent of bad faith to punish Natalie Lowrey.”
Lowrey was stopped by immigration department officials at KLIA on grounds she was blacklisted from entering Malaysia.
She was however not informed of the reason for her being blacklisted and was deported back to Bali where she flew in from.
Lowrey is the Australia-based environmental justice activist that has been campaigning for the closure of Australian company, Lynas Corporation Ltd’s rare earth plant in Kuantan, Pahang.
Accusing the government of putting Malaysia in a bad light internationally, Suaram and Himpunan Hijau said, “…our government is more interested in protecting the Australian company, Lynas Corporation Ltd rather than the interests and the health of its own people in Kuantan.
They also reiterated their call to the government to remove Lowrey’s name from the blacklist as well as drop all charges against the 15 who protested against Lynas last June.
Also among their demands was that the government refrain from granting a permanent operating licence to the Lynas rare earth plant.

Australian anti-mining activist Natalie Lowrey faces TWO YEARS in Malaysian prison after being arrested at protest 





Australian anti-mining activist Natalie Lowrey faces TWO YEARS in Malaysian prison after being arrested at protest

  • She was arrested on Sunday with 15 other protestors from Malaysia
  • They were demonstrating outside of a Lynas Corp plant in Pahang state
  • Lowrey is facing deportation and remains in custody until a date is set
  • She has tweeted she is fine and is being treated well by Malaysian officials

An Australian activist has been arrested by Malaysian police after protesting against a rare earth plant that has been accused by environmentalists of producing radioactive waste.
Activist Natalie Lowrey was arrested along with 15 other protestors from Malaysia on Sunday outside the plant owned by Australian mining company, Lynas Corp, in the eastern state of Pahang, SBS reported.
A police official told The Guardian, Lowrey could face up to two years in prison but at minimum she could be deported back to Australia.
The Australian remains hopeful that she will be deported, posting on Facebook: 'Thanks for the supportive messages :) I am going fine not sure when I will be deported but hope to see you soon xx.'

Following the arrest, Lowrey also posted one of the men had been badly hurt by police.
SBS reported the other protestors had been released and could face future charges.
But Lowrey was still in police custody for 'investigations', a district police official said. He did not offer anymore information.
The term rare earths refers to 18 metals that are used for industrial and hi-tech techniques, including creating smartphones, hybrid car batteries, wind turbines, steel and low-energy light bulbs.
Lowrey has tweeted that she has been treated well by officials and awaits a deportation date

Lynas Corp is trying to wrestle monopoly away from China who dominate the rare earths industry, with 95 per cent of the market's global production coming out of the country. It is also home to 23 per cent of global reserves of the metals.
Protestors were arrested when some infiltrated the police barricade during demonstrations, according to Malaysian anti-Lynas activist Tan Bun Teet.
They believe the plant is producing radioactive waste that is threatening the environment and the population.
Environmentalist groups believe the Lynas-run plant is producing radioactive material and poses a threat to the environment and population

Sydney-based Lowrey is awaiting a deportation date. She arrived last week for Sunday's demonstration.
In late 2012, Lynas began its operations outside Kuantan - Pahang's capital - in an industrial park after more than a year of delay because of strong opposition from the local people.
Since then, environmentalists have gathered at the Malaysian plant in a slew of protests.
The mining giant has been adamant the plant is safe, saying radioactive waste was minimal and would be disposed of safely.

Rosmah Mansor wife of PM 'Pink Lips' Jibby

Rosmah Mansor wife of PM 'Pink Lips' Jibby


Born in Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan on December 10th 1951, Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor has come a long way from her home in the suburbs and her secondary schooling at the Tunku Kurshiah College, a prestigious boarding school for bright Malay girls in Malaysia.
After completing her tertiary and higher education at University Malaya and Louisiana State University in 1974 and 1978 respectively, Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor returned to launch her corporate career, putting to good use her Bachelor's degree in Sociology and Anthropology and her Masters degree in Sociology and Agriculture Extension. She served at Agriculture Bank Malaysia until 1983, and then took on the position of Business Development Manager at Island and Peninsular Berhad where she served until 1987.
Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor left Island and Peninsular to become a full time politician's wife to Dato Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Hj Abd Razak, knowing that the demands of her husband's work dictates that she gives her home and family life as much care and attention as possible. Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor was also keenly aware that she would have to gradually take on more public roles as she continued to give pivotal support to her husband's political rise.
Today, as the wife of the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor wears many hats. She is the President of the Welfare Association of Minister's Wives (BAKTI). She holds the position of Patron for various associations, among others are Children in Hope Foundation, Malaysian Nature Society, Society of the Orthopedically Handicapped Malaysia, Malaysia Aids Council, National Heart Institute Foundation, Thalasemia Association, National Athletes' Welfare Association, the Foundation for the Development of Underprivileged Children and many more. She is also on the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) as their patron, as well as the President of the Girl Guides Association of Malaysia.
Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor strongly believes that human capital development begins with children and it is an important investment for the nation. This will lay a firm foundation for national growth, productivity, social cohesion and peace. She has thus been active in driving this initiative through the PERMATA programmes starting with nationwide establishment of early childhood education and care centres or Permata Negara that focuses on children below 5 years. Through her effort, to date, more than 650 Permata Negara Centers have been set up throughout the country.
This programme has since been widened to the intellectually gifted children under the banner of PERMATA Pintar, aimed at providing appropriate enriched learning environment to challenge them to the fullest potential. This programme offers two approaches, the annual school camp for children aged 9-15 and a school for gifted children aged 16-17 at the National University of Malaysia (UKM). As for PERMATA Seni, the objective is to further refine the talents of children in performing arts i.e: music, choir and dance. Whilst for PERMATA Insan, the gifted children are provided with an early exposure to the understanding of a-Quran and as-Sunnah in order to groom them to be future Islamic intellectuals.
As a means to reach out to the youth especially those at risk she initiated the Perkasa Remaja via camp intervention and Community based programmes. These two programmes are aimed at empowering youth to be into the mainstream development.
She is now embarking on two new projects; the PEMATA Kurnia, a programme for children with autism and Children Specialist Hospital. Both projects are in the process of implementation.
Other than her involvement in the welfare of children, she is also passionate in advancing women related issues, such as empowerment of women, gender equality and uplifting the economic status of women. She has been invited on numerous occasions to speak on these issues at conferences both locally and internationally.
In recognition for her many contribution to the country and its people, Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor has been conferred various high awards from the States of Pahang, Kedah, Melaka, Selangor, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan, Sabah and Sarawak. She was also awarded an honorary Doctorate in Education by University Technology MARA Malaysia, the Honorary Doctorate of Innovation in Human Capacity Development by Limkokwing University of Creative Technology and the Honorary Doctorate in Early Childhood Education by Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI). Her contribution was also acknowledged internationally with the award for Social Responsibility from the city of Ankara, Turkey. She was also conferred with the Honorary Doctorate of Letters by Australia's Curtin University and Professorship by the International Information Technology University, Kazakhstan.

 The Prime Minister’s wife is often portrayed in the local media as allegedly leading an extravagant lifestyle.[1]

Rosmah Mansor

Rosmah Mansor in younger days.
Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor (born 1951, age 62) is the 2nd wife of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak who divorced his first wife, Tengku Puteri Zainah Tengku Eskandar (Ku Yie) of the Kelantan royal family, in 1987 in order to marry her. Then aged 34, Najib was, at the time, the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, while Rosmah, at 35, was 16 months older.
Rosmah Mansor is said to wield huge political power during her husband's term as prime minister, including spending government money on projects, and controlling media coverage of politicians.[2] On Hari Raya Puasa Day in 2011, Rosmah became the first prime minister's wife in Malaysian history to have her own special slot on television broadcast to deliver her Hari Raya speech. (Prior to this, only the prime minister gave this sort of speech over television.) The matter was questioned and widely criticized by the Opposition.

2.  Brief biography: Born in Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan, Rosmah Mansor grew up in Seremban. After obtaining her Bachelor's degree in Sociology and Anthropology from Universiti Malaya (UM) in 1974, she obtained her Master's Degree in Sociology and Agriculture from Louisiana State University. Rosmah then worked as an executive with Bank Pertanian, before being appointed as a business development manager at Island and Peninsular Berhad, a property developer company, in 1983.
In 1987, then aged 36, Rosmah Mansor became the 2nd wife of Najib Tun Razak, the then Deputy UMNO Youth Chief and Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports. At the time, she has 2 children from her first marriage with Abdul Aziz Nong Chik.
On 10 December 2012, Rosmah Mansor's biography was soft-launched by Sultan Ahmad Shah of Pahang. Written by Siti Rohayah Attan and Noraini Abdul Razak, it is slated to be published in January 2013. The 164-book is priced at RM150.00.

3.  Controversies:
  • Alleged involvement in the Altantuya murder: On 18 June 2008, Raja Petra Kamarudin made a statutory declaration, alleging that Rosmah was present during the disposal of Altantuya's body. A scan of Raja Petra's statutory declaration is available here.

Answer RM13mil Jewel-gate claim, Rosmah told
(Uploaded by malaysiakini on 2 January 2013)
  • 2010 New York Times advertisement: A 2-page spread in the New York Times on 16 April 2010, estimated to cost between RM1,160,000 and RM1,480,000, congratulated Rosmah on her being conferred a little-known International Peace and Harmony Award.[3] The ad was placed on the last day of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's visit to the United States.
The ad welcomed Rosmah as Malaysia's "First Lady" to New York, and carried the message: "In recognition of your effort to promote peace, harmony and understanding among the people of Malaysia and your courageous acts in making a difference to the lives of people and children around the world. Malaysia is proud of you." It was signed off: "Best wishes from family and friends in USA and Malaysia." (The ad did not name the Business Council for International Understanding, the outfit that gave Rosmah the award.)
In an e-mail response to questions from The Nut Graph, the New York Times said: "The advertisement was placed by an ad agency on behalf of the Malaysian government" and added that the ad was not placed by private individuals, as suggested by the last line in the ad's congratulatory message.[3] It was also noted that while Rosmah was prominently featured in the ad in a respected and established newspaper, US media coverage of Najib's visit and meeting with President Barack Obama was scant. The question in everyone's mind was that if the Malaysian government had indeed hired an ad agency, why was taxpayers' money being used to promote Rosmah, instead of the prime minister and the country? [3]
  • Alleged RM13-million Jewelgate: On 3 January 2013, carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan alleged that he had paid RM13 million to purchase 19 pieces of custom-made jewelry from 2 firms in Hong Kong for Rosmah Mansor in 2008 and 2009, as part of kickbacks to grease a land deal that eventually fell through and failed to materialize.
Based on preliminary checks, PKR Strategy Director Rafizi Ramli said that he believed that the email communiques, invoices, account summaries, and fund-transfer documents that his party had obtained from Deepak through intermediaries were genuine.[4]
  • Honorary degree: On 11 February 2012, Rosmah was conferred the honorary Doctor of Letters degree by Australia's Curtin University in recognition of her efforts in the development of education, particularly children's education through the Permata Negara programme. The university had faced online criticism, given the reports of Rosmah's excessive shopping sprees, including a US$24 million diamond ring and a US$200,000 designer handbag.[5]
  • Alleged misuse of government's private jet: On 10–14 November 2013, Rosmah made a controversial trip to Qatar to attend a women's summit, using a government-funded private jet. Pengerang MP Azalina Othman, who accompanied Rosmah to Qatar, admitted that the invitation to attend the summit was extended to Rosmah in her personal capacity and not to the government.[6] (Parliament was told in November 2013 that the use of executive jets by the government cost RM15 million for fuel and RM160 million for maintenance, with a single flight costing around RM470,000.)

" Saya mendapat maklumat terbaru ini semalam semasa sedang menanti kawan di Mid Valley. Tiba-tiba saya mendapat panggilan talipon dari seorang kawan. Panjang pula cerita kawan saya ni. Penat berdiri, saya mencari tempat untuk merehatkan kaki yang letih.

Saya duduk di kerusi paling tepi di sebuah coffee house. Setelah selesai berbual dengan kawan melalui handphone, saya menikmati ‘cappucinno’ sambil menyedut racun ‘Sampoerna’, racun berjadual kegemaran saya.

TUTUP MUKA… Cif Inspektor Azilah Hadri, 32, dan Koperal Sirul Azhar Umar, 36, dari Unit Tindakan Khas (UTK) Ibu Pejabat Polis Bukit Aman, beredar daripada Mahkamah Tinggi selepas diperintahkan membela diri pada perbicaraan kes bunuh wanita warga Mongolia Altantuya Shaariibuu di Mahkamah Tinggi Shah Alam. –fotoBERNAMA

“Razak Baginda dah lepas bebas
“Aku dah agak, ini semua sandiwara Najib”
“Dua ekor kambing hitam tu pun sebenarnya bukannya Cif Inspektor Azilah Hadri dan Koperal Sirul Azhar”
“Engkau biar betul”
“Betul, kalau si Bala tu pun, Rosmah bolih umpan 5 juta dan hantar dia ngan family dia ke India. Ini setakat Azilah dengan Sirul, Rosmah kentut je lintang pukang dia orang lari” “Engkau ingat Najib tak boleh buat kerja ni semua ke? Dia ada kuasa, beeb. Apa Rosmah cakap mana Najib berani nak beta”
“Sial betul si Rosmah tu. Takde ati perut”
“Apalah kau ni. Apa pulak si Rosmah tu takde ati perut. Ada! Hati ada. Perut pun ada. Tapi pekong macam bangkai anjing”
“Kesian Azilah ngan Sirul, tak pasal-pasal jadi mangsa”
“Hello kawan, yang dua orang tu bukan Azilah dengan Sirul lah. Entah mamat gian mana entah dia orang cekup, jadikan mangsa. Ini semua berlakon je beeb”
“Iya ke”
“Dah betahun kes ini, muka dia dua orang tu berselubung memanjang. Idea siapa ni kalau bukan idea Rosmah?”
“Betullah. Kenapa yek? Kenapa dua orang tu tak pernah nampak muka dia kat paper?”
“Itulah aku cakap, ini drama. Bukan kat paper je tak nampak muka dia. Engkau bayangkan dalam mahkamah pun muka dua ekor tu berselubung. Aku pergi mahkamah, aku sendiri tengok dua ekor berselubung. Kalau wartawan pun tak nampak, camana kau nak nampak. Yang bunuh Altantuya tu sebenarnya si Rosmah sendiri. Orang kampong aku kat Ulu Bendul pun tau kes ni. Memang dia orang sendiri dengar cerita sahih dari member-member polis dia orang”.

Kepada yang amat saya kasih, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, perempuan yang solid molid dan Datuk Seri Najib Razak, itulah persepsi rakyat terhadap apa yang berlaku. Sekarang adalah menjadi tanggungjawab kalian berdua untuk membesihkan nama kalian.
Membersihkan nama bukan dengan cara menangkap penulis blog atau rakyat yang bersangka buruk terhadap kalian. Bukan dengan cara menghadiahkan ISA kepada rakyat yang menuntut keadilan. Kalian wajib dipanggil untuk memberi keterangan di mahkamah berkaitan segala pertuduhan yang telah dibuat oleh Raja Petra terhadap kalian.
Rakyat telah benar-benar percaya angkara pembunuhan Altantuya ini adalah plot cerita yang dilakonkan oleh kalian berdua.
Di bawah ini saya perturunkan titipan dan persepsi pengunjung dalam isu ‘Pembunuhan Altantuya’ dan rancangan pembelian ‘Eurocopter’ terhadap Rosmah Mansor, Najib Razak dan system perundangan Malaysia seluruhnya.


Mahkamah Rayuan bebaskan Sirul dan Azilah dari tuduhan bunuh Altantuya..

Sebagaimana yang dijangka banyak pihak... Mahkamah Rayuan hari ini membebaskan anggota Unit Tindakan Khas, Cif Inspektor Azilah Hadri dan Koperal Sirul Azhar Umar, daripada pertuduhan membunuh penterjemah Mongolia, Altantuya Shaariibuu.

Ini berikutan mahkamah dalam keputusan sebulat suara membenarkan rayuan pasangan itu.

Cif Inspektor Azilah Hadri dan Kpl Sirul Azhar Umar dikenakan hukuman gantung sampai mati selepas didapati bersalah kerana membunuh Altantuya Shaariibu. Foto THE STAR

SHAH ALAM: Mahkamah Tinggi Shah Alam hari ini menjatuhkan hukuman gantung sampai mati terhadap Cif Inspektor Azilah Hadri dan Kpl Sirul Azhar Umar kerana didapati bersalah membunuh wanita Mongolia Altantuya Shaariibu.

Hakim Datuk Mohd Zaki Md Yasin berkata pihak pendakwaan telah membuktikan tanpa keraguan munasabah kes terhadap Azilah, 33, dan Sirul Azhar, 37.

Katanya pembelaan keduadua tertuduh berdasarkan kepada penafian dan juga menyalahkan satu sama lain, dan dengan itu, ianya tidak boleh dipercayai."Mereka gagal menimbulkan sebarang keraguan munasabah terhadap kes pendakwaan yang dapati konklusif.

"Saya dengan ini menjatuhkan hukuman gantung sampai mati terhadap kamu, Azilah dan Sirul Azhar," kata Mohd Zaki. Azilah dan Sirul Azhar dituduh membunuh Altantuya, 28, di satu kawasan dalam Mukim Bukit Raja dekat sini antara 10 malam 19 Oktober dan 1 pagi 20 Oktober 2006.

Pengarah eksekutif Malaysian Strategic Research Centre, Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda, 48, yang sebelum ini dituduh bersubahat dengan mereka, telah dilepaskan dan dibebaskan pada 31 Oktober tahun lepas tanpa dipanggil membela diri setelah pihak pendakwaan gagal membuktikan ada kes prima kes terhadapnya.

Dalam penghakimannya hari ini, Mohd Zaki berkata pembelaan Azilah bergantung kepada keterangan yang dia tidak berada di tempat kejadian semasa jenayah itu dilakukan dan dia juga tidak membuat kenyataan berhubung tempat kejadian yang diterima oleh mahkamah.

"Dia mendakwa berada di Wangsa Maju dan dia bukannya orang terakhir berada bersama Altantuya kerana dia menyerahkan Altantuya pada malam itu kepada tertuduh kedua (Sirul Azhar) untuk dihantar pulang ke Hotel Malaya," katanya.

Mengenai Sirul Azhar, Hakim Mohd Zaki berkata pembelaan tertuduh kedua itu bergantung kepada keterangan bahawa dia adalah "kambing korban", dia tidak membuat kenyataan berhubung barangan peribadi milik Altantuya, dia tidak berada di tempat kejadian sebaliknya berada di Sri Hartamas dan di Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur, dan Altantuya tidak diserahkan kepadanya oleh Azilah untuk dibawa ke Hotel Malaya.

Pihak pendakwaan dibarisi Timbalan Pendakwa Raya Tun Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah, Noorin Badaruddin, Manoj Kurup dan Hanim Rashid manakala peguam Datuk Hazman Ahmad dan J. Kuldeep Kumar mewakili Azilah dan peguam Kamarul Hisham Kamaruddin, Hasnal Redzua Marican serta Ahmad Zaidi Zainal mewakili Sirul Azhar.

Ketika hukuman dijatuhkan, Azilah dan Sirul Azhar kelihatan tenang dan tidak menunjukkan sebarang emosi

. Di luar mahkamah, tunang Azilah, Nur Azila Baharuddin berkata keluarga Azilah di Sarawak telah diberitahu mengenai keputusan mahkamah itu dan mereka amat sedih kerana mengharapkan dia akan dibebaskan.

Nur Azila berkata beliau tetap berharap Azilah akan dibebaskan apabila rayuan terhadap keputusan hari ini dibawa ke peringkat Mahkamah Rayuan dan Mahkamah Persekutan.

Ditanya mengenai rancangan masa depan mereka berdua, Nur Azilah berkata:

"Tak ada rancangan lagi tapi memanglah nak kahwin sebab dah lama tunggu, kita berkenalan sejak 2004 dan bertunang pada 2006."

Konsul Kehormat Mongolia di Malaysia, Datuk Syed Abdul Rahman AlHabshi yang turut ditemui pemberita, berkata beliau telah menghubungi bapa Altantuya, Dr Setev Shaariibuu, untuk memaklumkan mengenai keputusan itu pada pukul 9.30 pagi tadi.

Beliau berkata Shaariibuu, berasa lega dan berpuas hati dengan keputusan hari ini serta ingin mengetahui perkembangan selanjutnya mengenai tindakan yang akan diambil oleh pihak pembelaan.

Ditanya mengapa Shaariibuu tidak hadir, Abdul Rahman menjelaskan beliau (Shaariibuu) terkeliru dengan laporan media antarabangsa bahawa keputusan hari ini ditangguhkan ke tarikh lain, selain keadaan kesihatannya yang tidak begitu baik.

Timbalan Pendakwa Raya Tun Majid Tun Hamzah pula berkata kes itu belum berakhir kerana ia boleh dirayu ke Mahkamah Rayuan dan Mahkamah Persekutuan.

"Melainkan keputusan hari ini dikekalkan oleh Mahkamah Persekutuan nanti, barulah boleh dikatakan kes ini telah selesai," katanya ~ mStar


Fakta Kes Saman Malu Mazlan Aliman keatas Ins Mohd Azran Rahmat dan Kerajaan Malaysia:-

1. Datang ke Felda Lembah Klau pada 9 mac 2010 atas tujuan ziarah peneroka Felda yg sakit kerana dilokap beberapa hari kerana dakwaan mencuri buah kelapa sawit di kebunnya sendiri,

2. Bersembang santai di beranda rumah Hj Hamidun Yeop Isa, peneroka Lembah Klau bersama sekitar 15-20 orang peneroka dan gen 2 felda antara pukul 3.30-4.30 ptg. Duduk bersila dan berbual tanpa pembesar suara.

3. Diserbu dan dikepong oleh 30 orang anggota Polis Bantuan Felda yg membawa senjatapi.

4. Ins Azran sebagai Pegawai Penyiasat dari IPD Raub mendakwa menahan saya di hadapan Bangunan Indrapura, Jln Teras Raub jam 11.15 mlm bersama 9 anggota JSJ IPD Raub pada 9 mac 2010 seolah2 saya penjenayah besar yg sangat berbahaya,

5. Ins Azran membuat dakwaan palsu kerana saya sebenarnya ditangkap di Tkt 1 IPD Raub pada tarikh dan masa tersebut oleh beliau sahaja. Ada beberapa saksi bersama dengan saya termasuk lawyer Haris Abdullah.

6. Ins Azran memalsukan maklumat penahanan adalah bertujuan untuk mendapatkan perintah reman dari Puan Majistret Mahkamah Majistret Raub; alasannya untuk siasatan lanjut.

7. Ins Azran mohon reman 4 hari, tapi dibenarkan sehari sahaja oleh Pn Majistret setelah dibantah oleh Lawyer Haris Abdullah.

8. Sepanjang saya direman dan dilokap, tiadapun sebarang siasatan lanjut dibuat, hingga saya dibebaskan.

9. Saya didakwa di bawah seksyen 447 Kanun Keseksaan, iaitu kesalahan pencerobohan jenayah(criminal trespass) walhal tiada harta dan kegiatan jenayah yg saya lakukan. Dialog yg disusun pun dibatalkan kerana tiada beroleh permit. Saya hanya ziarah sahaja.

Adakah ziarah suatu jenayah?

10. Sepatutnya seksyen 441 digunakan untuk menahan saya. Ia lebih munasabah. Penggunaan akta pun salah. Diminta baca kedua dua seksyen dalam mahkamah pun tergagap gagap.

11. Penahanan saya adalah tidak sah dan salah. Defendan memalsukan maklumat, bagi membolehkan perintah reman dikeluarkan keatas saya. Saya memohon gantirugi2 berkaitan.

12. Hakim Dato' Akhtar Tahir akan membuat keputusan atas kes ini pada 23 oktober akan datang di Mahkamah Tinggi Temerloh.

Altantuya telah dibunuh di hutan Puncak Alam dekat Shah Alam antara jam 10 malam 19 Oktober dan 1 pagi 20 Oktober 2006.

Menurut peguam, kedua-dua tertuduh mungkin dibebaskan dari penjara Sungai Buloh lewat hari ini.

Dalam mesej teks, Tun Majid berkata mereka akan membuat rayuan terhadap keputusan hari ini. 

Sementara itu, Bernama melaporkan bahawa suasana di mahkamah senyap seketika semasa hakim menyampaikan penghakiman sementara Azilah, 34, dan Sirul Azhar, 39, kelihatan tenang selepas keputusan dibacakan.

"Melihat kepada keadaan keseluruhan kes ini, pertimbangan kami ialah kesan kumulatif bukan arahan oleh hakim perbicaraan yang bijaksana itu menjadikan sabitan perayu tidak selamat. Kami sebulat suara membenarkan kedua-dua rayuan ini," kata Hakim Tengku Maimun.

Kedua-duanya disabitkan dan dijatuhkan hukuman mati oleh Mahkamah Tinggi pada 2009 kerana membunuh Altantuya, 28, di Mukim Bukit Raja, Shah Alam antara pukul 10 malam, 19 Oktober dan 1 pagi, 20 Oktober 2006.

Bekas penganalisis politik Abdul Razak Baginda, 50, yang dituduh bersubahat dengan mereka, dibebaskan oleh Mahkamah Tinggi pada 31 Okt 2008 selepas pihak pendakwaan gagal mewujudkan kes prima facie terhadapnya.

Sebagai langkah segera, pihak pendakwa diketuai Peguam Cara II Datuk Tun Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah memberitahu pemberita Pejabat Peguam Negara akan memfailkan rayuan terhadap pembebasan dua anggota polis itu.

Dalam penghakiman, mahkamah mengemukakan lapan alasan bagi pembebasan Azilah dan Sirul Azhar.

Hakim Tengku Maimun berkata mahkamah mendapati Hakim Mahkamah Tinggi Datuk Mohd Zaki Md Yasin tidak membuat sebarang dapatan mengenai sama ada pihak pendakwa telah membuktikan mengenai kewujudan perancangan awal oleh dua anggota polis itu untuk melakukan pembunuhan dan pembunuhan itu dilakukan rentetan daripada perancangan awal itu.

"Dalam penghakiman kami, ketiadaan dapatan sebegitu oleh hakim perbicaraan yang bijaksana mengenai ramuan niat bersama yang membawa kepada penyalaharahan dengan cara tanpa arahan," katanya.

Mengenai log panggilan dan ramalan liputan, beliau berkata mahkamah mendapati keterangan oleh tiga saksi daripada beberapa syarikat telekomunikasi telah membawa kepada isu kebolehpercayaan dan ketepatan log panggilan dan ramalan liputan.-malaysiakini

Pembebasan Azilah dan Sirul Sudah Dijangka, Beri 'Motivasi' Kepada Pihak Tertentu Untuk Terus Membunuh

Sememangnya dari awal kes pembunuhan Altantuya menyaksikan perbicaraan melibatkan Azilah dan Sirul ditangguh dan ditangguh sehingga selepas pilihanraya untuk memberi laluan Barisan Nasional menang PRU tersebut. Kemenangan ini membolehkan kedua-dua 'pak sanggup' ini dibebaskan, hari ini.

Perihal ini sudah disebut dan Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) sudah menjangka keputusan mahkamah Rayuan yang membebaskan anggota Unit Tindakan Khas, Cif Inspektor Azilah Hadri dan Koperal Sirul Azhar Umar, daripada pertuduhan membunuh penterjemah Mongolia, Altantuya Shaariibuu.

Apabila BN kekal, rakyat bukan sahaja tidak mengetahui apakah motif pembunuhan dan siapa yang arah pembunuhan Altantuya, malah pembunuhnya juga dibebaskan.

Walaupun dalam kes yang berprofile tinggi, walaupun sudah mengaku melakukan pembunuhan malah menyebut diri sebagai 'kambing hitam' kerana menjadi pembunuh upahan, namun akhirnya dibebaskan. Apakah ia satu keputusan menang-menang demi saling melindungi? Lihatlah bagaimana keadilan tidak berada di tempatnya, tetapi berada di tangan pemerintah.

Keputusan ini juga seharusnya memberikan 'motivasi' besar kepada pihak tertentu untuk terus menjalankan kerja 'black-ops' dengan jaminan dibebas sekiranya tertangkap dan dibicarakan. Pihak tertentu termasuk kemungkinan melibatkan anggota polis yang mengikut telunjuk atasan mampu berbuat apa sahaja kerja jahat, pasti akhirnya terlepas hukuman dan dibebaskan. Maka tidak hairanlah jika selepas ini lebih banyak kes pembunuh upahan. Konspirasi akhirnya berjaya apabila si pembunuh, individu yang mengarah pembunuhan, orang tengah, semuanya selamat. Rekod imigresen Altantuya terus hilang, bersama rekod bahan letupan yang diseludup keluar.

Pendedahan mengenai kematian tragis Altantuya telah di buat oleh SAMM dan banyak pihak lain khususnya apabila melibatkan skandal penyelewengan pembelian kapal selam Scorpene. che'GuBard sebelum ini pernah menulis dan menerbitkan sebuah buku yang bertajuk 'Siapa Arah Bunuh Altantuya'. Buku tersebut telah menyebabkan che'GuBard ditahan sebanyak enam kali dan rumah che'GuBard beberapa kali digeledah, namun tiada dakwaan terhadap che'GuBard. Malah ketika buku ini dilancarkan, rumah che'GuBard dibaling dengan bom botol.

Justeru itu, apakah konklusi paling tepat mengenai pembunuhan altantuya? Negara hari ini menjadi kartun apabila membayangkan 'sebenarnya' Altantuya membunuh dirinya sendiri, kemudian bangun dan meletupkan pula dirinya menggunakan bom C4 demi menghilangkan bukti.

Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM)

Ika Tiah - Pilihanraya sudah lepas mah.. masa utk tamatkan wayang.

Irene Bulan Kallang - the verdict was expected by everyone... what they were trying to prove is :----->Nobody killed Altantuya, she shoot herself in the head and die after shooting herself she found some explosive and blew herself up...or they are telling malaysian to stop imagining because Altantuya is a figment of imagination of all malaysians..nothing ever happened.. it is not real..

Ken Yip - kalau tak bebas hari ini pun tak ada org tau sebelum dan selepas dua org ni betul dipenjara atau makan angin diluar negara

Siva Kumar - Muka ditutup,sekarang dah dibebaskan,lepas ni jadi polis balik dan pergi bom lagi di tempat awak,cam mana awak nak tahu?

Rohaifi Azri - Tanpa motif, tanpa pesalah. Nampaknya Altantuya menyusup masuk ke Malaysia, kemudian meletupkan dirinya sendiri menggunakan C4.


Court frees Azilah and Sirul of Altantuya murder charge...

The Court of Appeal today freed Special Action Unit officers Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar of the charge of murdering Mongolian translator Altantuya Shaariibuu.

altantuya razak baginda murder 110707 sirul escortedThis followed the court’s unanimous decision to allow the duo's appeal in the sensational case.

However, the prosecution has the opportunity to appeal with the Federal Court - the country's highest court.

As soon as the court's decision was read, the two accused said: "Thank you, your lordships."

While justice Md Apandi Ali led the three-member bench, justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat read out the judgment, which ruled there were serious misdirections by the High Court judge.

The misdirections included the failure to call Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's former aide de camp DSP Musa Safri and the failure to take into consideration the police station's diary, which stated that Azilah was at Bukit Aman at the time of the incident.

The other judges were justices Linton Albert and Tengku Maimon Tuan Mat.

Alibi not taken into consideration

Shah Alam High Court judge Md Zaki Yassin on April 2009 convicted the two of murder but acquitted Najib’s close confidante, political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda (below), of abetting the murder.

abdul razak baginda altantuya mongolian case 040607 leadIn today's judgement, justice Tengku Maimun said the court did not find anywhere in the High Court's judgment about whether it had considered the alibi and the inconsistency in the telephone call logs of the accused.

"These include the police station’s diary, which states that Azilah was at Bukit Aman and not at the crime scene.

"The learned trial judge had misdirected himself by way of non-direction in failing to consider the station’s diary and in failing to make a finding whether the defence had cast a reasonable doubt in the prosecution's case," she said.

On the call logs, she said the court found inconsistencies in the testimonies of the telephone company's witnesses, which had put an issue on the accuracy of the calls in question and the coverage protection.

“In our judgment, it is essential for the trial judge to address his mind to the challenge raised by the defence on whether there was in fact alteration or tampering of the data and whether the authenticity of the data was questionable or otherwise.

"Regrettably, the judge failed to do so and this amounts to serious misdirection rendering the exhibits (the call logs) unsafe to be relied upon," she said.

Inconsistency in police testimonies

The court also ruled that there were inconsistencies in the testimonies of the police’s prosecution witness leading to the discovery of the crime scene, where the High Court judge did not examine the credibility and did not address the defence’s contention.

altantuya trial 160707 azilah"This has raised a doubt on the accuracy of the section 27 statements and whether the discovery was made exclusively as a result of the information supplied by the two appellants (the two accused) and not from other sources," said Tengku Maimun.

On the possession of explosives, Tengku Maimun said the High Court judge should have made a further finding to connect the explosives to the two accused.

"By not making any findings on possession by the appellants of the explosives used in the commission of the murder, the learned trial judge had failed to address his mind on this missing link, resulting in yet another misdirection," she said.

The defence had argued that the type of explosives used in the murder was not kept in the police armoury.

Tengku Maimum also ruled that the non-calling of Musa (Najib's aide de camp) was essential.

"This is to unfold the narrative upon which the prosecution's case is based on. 

"The failure of the prosecution to call or offer Musa for cross-examination in the circumstances of the evidence as a whole would have triggered adverse inference under section 114 (g) of the Evidence Act 1950 against the prosecution," she said.

The Court of Appeal also found that justice Md Zaki (High court) had failed to establish whether there was common intention.

"We find the judge made no findings on whether the prosecution had established that there was a pre-arranged plan by the appellants to commit murder and that murder was committed pursuant to the pre-arranged plan.

"In our judgment, the absence of such findings by the learned trial judge on the ingredient of common intention amounted to a misdirection by way of non-direction," Tengku Maimun ruled.

Blood-stained slippers and spent bullet

On the issue of the blood-stained slippers (allegedly Altantuya’s) found in Sirul's car, the court ruled there was no nexus between the slippers and Sirul and the prosecution had not closed the gap.

There were questions about the blood-stained slippers as they were not Sirul's size and it was not ascertained who owned it.

altantuya and son 050309On the issue of a spent bullet found in Sirul's car, again the court found that there was a gap in the prosecution's case and the High Court judge had failed to direct his mind to the matter.

"It is our judgment the cumulative effect of the non-directions by the judge rendered the conviction unsafe. 

"We unanimously allow both appeals. Conviction and sentence are set aside. The appellants are acquitted and discharged," said Tengku Maimun. 

Azilah was represented by Hazman Ahmad and J Kuldeep Kumar, while Kamarul Hisham Kamaruddin and Hasnal Rezua Merican appeared for Sirul.

Deputy solicitor-general III Tun Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah led a team of prosecutors that comprised  DPP's Manoj Kurup and Noorin Badaruddin.

Altantuya (above) was murdered in the forest of Puncak Alam near Shah Alam between 10pm on Oct 19 and 1am on Oct 20, 2006.

According to the accuseds' lawyers, the two should be released from prison later today.

 So, who killed Altantuya? And why...

Seven years on, no one has paid the price for the death of Altantuya Shaariibuu. And no one knows why the pretty Mongolian was killed one night in October 2006.

But today's Court of Appeal decision does not close the file on her mysterious murder.

Instead, the ruling to acquit former chief inspector Azilah Hadri and former corporal Sirul Azhar Umar raises more questions than ever.

 Who killed her? Why?

She was shot dead and C4 explosives were allegedly used to blow her to bits but both police commandos said they had no access to the explosives. So what happened? Were there others involved?

She came into the country but there were no immigration records with her name. Did she use another passport? Can the authorities explain this?

Some of these questions could have been answered if the likes of DSP Musa Safri had been called to give evidence.

The prosecution did not call him and the appeal court today allowed the appeal because material witnesses were not called to testify, including Musa.

Musa would have been able to say what sort of help political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda had asked of him to fend off Altantuya.

The interpreter had become Abdul Razak's lover but later hounded him. He had to hire private investigator P. Balasubramaniam to keep watch on her. When Altantuya turned up that fateful night on October 19, 2006, the policemen took her away and that was the last time she was seen alive.

What followed rocked Malaysia's political establishment. Abdul Razak was held in connection with the murder and both police commandos Azilah and Sirul were later charged for Altantuya's murder.

Their connection to each other was simply Musa, who was aide-de-camp to then deputy prime minister and defence minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Now prime minister, Najib has denied any links to the case although Abdul Razak was closely associated with him. Will today's ruling provide closure for him too?

Will it also provide closure for Abdul Razak, who was the first to be acquitted of conspiring to kill Altantuya? He had admitted to fending her off but not asking for her death.

Interestingly, the prosecution never appealed his acquittal.

But the prosecution has said it would appeal today's ruling that freed Azilah and Sirul, both of whom were hooded and shielded from public view during their 159-day murder trial.

That again raises more questions. And endless possibilities.-malaysian insider

Ferdtan - So the Court of Appeal freed Special Action Unit officers Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and Corporal Sirul Azhar of the charge of murdering Mongolian translator Altantuya . So what happens next? Why didn’t the police immediately, outside the court, re-arrest them for manslaughter instead of first degree murder in this case? It would be open-and-shut case as in the police report Sirul confessed that they were paid between RM50,000 to RM100,000 to kill Altantuya. The police frequently in the past were always ready to re-arrest suspects (not to their liking?) when freed by the judge outside the door of the courts? 

YF - Isn't this expected since the very beginning? These lawless folks are saying when you die of strangling means you cekik sendiri, when you fall of a building means you commit suicide, when you get c4ed you did it voluntarily. This is the world's best justice system so dont play play.

FairMind - It's all a sandiwara which the public had expected even before the trial began.

TakBolehTahan - Mr Shaariibuu, my apologies. Malaysia has failed you.

Headhunters - After this they may say its Anwar Ibrahim who was the murderer! They will also say Anwar sodomised Altantuya and then killed her and then C-4 her body. To support their claim, they will make it headline news for weeks until Malaysians especially the blind supporters of UMNO/BN believe it. Then they will arrest, detain and charge Anwar and force him to give his DNA or simply steal it from him and then put him on trial.......surprise? well thats their slogan to be officially launch soon: "Endless Opportunities!"

minahkerang - Najib says,"Malaysia the land of endless possibilities" Keputusan mahkamah ini salah satu daripada the endless possibilities!!!


 Malaysia the land of endless possibilities

Sejarah dan asal usul Rosmah Mansor

Posted by mykhalis On 2:03 PM 36 comments

Latar Belakang

Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor ialah isteri Perdana Menteri Malaysia ke-6 Dato' Seri Mohd Najib bin Abdul Razak. Beliau dilahirkan di Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan pada 1951. Beliau merupakan canselor Universiti Industri Selangor (UNISEL).

Beliau merupakan isteri kedua Najib. Hasil perkahwinan tersebut, mereka mempunyai dua orang anak, Norashman dan Nooryana Narjawa. Beliau mempunyai seorang anak Azrene Soraya hasil daripada perkahwinan beliau yang pertama dengan Farith Ismeth Amir. Ibu beliau berasal dari Kampung Mertang, Seri Menanti, Negeri Sembilan.

Permulaan Kerjaya Dalam Politik

Ramai yang tidak tahu kisah sebenarnya bagaimana Rosmah berjaya mendapatkan Najib dari bekas isterinya Tengku Puteri Zainah iaitu seorang kerabat raja sebuah negeri di Pantai Timur. Ketika itu Najib adalah MB Pahang pada usia mudanya. Menurut maklumat, Rosmah sentiasa berkunjung ke pejabat MB untuk bertemu Najib. Beliau dibawa oleh rakan karibnya iaitu Maznah Mazlan yang kini menjadi Timbalan Menteri dan ADUN Muadzam Shah.

Khabarnya, boleh dikatakan setiap hari Rosmah mengadap Najib, dan setiap kali itulah hanya Rosmah yang dibenarkan naik ke Pejabat MB, lain-lain orang tidak dibenarkan. Kejadian itu berlaku agak lama, hinggakan MB Najib ketika itu terpaksa mengarahkan pihak-pihak tertentu mengalihkan kenderaan MB untuk membuktikan beliau tiada di pejabat setiap kali Rosmah datang. Peliknya, Maznah hanya menunggu di lobi Wisma Sri Pahang tempat kejadian ini berlaku.

Hubungan pelik Rosmah yang datang ke Pejabat ini berlarutan agak lama, hinggalah ditemui isteri Najib dikatakan terkena penyakit misteri yang sukar diubati. Maka itu akhirnya, Najib menceraikan isterinya dan sanggup berkahwin dengan Rosmah setelah membayar sekian harga kepada pemilik Rosmah ketika itu (seorang selebriti terkenal).

Entah berapa harga yang dibayar kita pun tidak pasti, mungkin ratus ribu atau juta agaknya. Akhirnya berjayalah Rosmah memiliki Najib, dan menurut maklumat maka bermulalah agenda Rosmah untuk menjadi orang nombor satu. Ini didedahkan kepada rakan-rakan rapatnya dan juga Maznah Mazlan. Berbanggalah Rosmah kerana memiliki lelaki seperti Najib Razak, seorang anak bekas Perdana Menteri yang amat disayangi rakyat dulu.

Kejayaan dan sumbangan

Hasratnya menjadi nombor satu tercapai seketika tatkala isteri Perdana Menteri Pak Lah, iaitu Hindon meninggal dunia akibat penyakit barahnya. Namun, perjalanan Rosmah sedikit terhalang selepas Pak Lah berkahwin kali kedua dengan Jeane Abdullah. Akhirnya hajat itu terbantut, namun usahanya tetap berjalan.

Beliau terus melangkah dan melangkah, segala yang menghalang Najib pasti akan diketepikan. Maka wujudlah berbagai skandal yang mengaitkan namanya seperti kes Altantunya, isu pembelian kapal selam dan jet sukhoi, isu pakaian seragam pelatih PLKN dan banyak lagi. Perjalanan Rosmah sedikit terencat dengan isu-isu ini. Namun, baginya perjalanan semakin hampir cuma masanya belum tiba.

Akhirnya kini, Rosmah sudah hampir berada dikemuncaknya. Kelibat beliau lebih hebat dari mana-mana isteri raja-raja Melayu atau Perdana Menteri sebelum ini. Kemana Najib pergi, maka beliau tetap akan mengekorinya. Beliau terlalu marah jika wajahnya tidak dipaparkan dimedia ketika beliau berada bersama Najib dalam mana-mana acara rasmi.

Pernah terjadi sebuah stesyen televisyen swasta di beri surat "tunjuk sebab", gara-gara mengambil gambar Najib dengan ternampak hanya tangannya sahaja di kaca TV. Rosmah tidak suka ini terjadi, beliau memberi amaran "tunggulah beliau jadi wanita nombor satu negara nanti".

Katanya itu masih terpahat dikalangan wartawan media terbabit. Mereka takut dengan amaran Rosmah. Beliau kini sedang mengatur strategi agar tidak ada orang yang menggagalkan rancangannya itu. Jika ada pasti "dipastikan" mereka akan gagal termasuklah Pak Lah, Anwar dan lain-lain lagi. Masa semakin tipis dan beliau harus berwaspada. Khabarnya beliau sudah mula berangan-angan untuk berada di Pejabat Perdana Menteri, bukannya Najib.

Bagi memastikan semua pihak berbuat baik dengannya, maka itulah beliau telah membelikan jam-jam tangan yang nilainya jutaan ringgit untuk diberikan kepada isteri-isteri pembesar negara dan raja-raja Melayu. Beliau sanggup lakukan semua ini demi mendapat sokongan dan yakin Najib akan menjadi orang nombor satu negara dan beliau bakal ditabalkan sebagai "wanita nombor satu".

Apakah hasratnya itu akan tercapai?. Rakyat dapat membayangkan, apakah akan terjadi jika beliau berjaya dengan impiannya ini?. Ada yang gusar dan takut apakah yang akan berlaku kepada rakyat terutamanya musuh Najib dalam pakatan pembangkang. Semua ini bakal terjawab dalam masa terdekat ini. Apapun, tidurnya sedikit "tidak lena" bila melihat mahkamah membicarakan Kes Hasutan Raja Petra yang kini ditahan ISA.

Apakah ini maknanya Rosmah dan Najib akan dipanggil sebagai saksi selepas ini?. Terdapat juga khabar angin, Mahathir ada memberi "kata dua" kepada Najib, jika beliau ingin mengejar impiannya itu beliau harus "lepaskan Rosmah". Ini kerana Mahathir tahu siapa Rosmah dan apakah kaitannya dengan skandal-sakandal yang dimaksudkan. Apapun, sama-samalah kita nantikan perjalanan Rosmah sebagai "wanita nombor satu" selepas ini

Rosmah "Most Powerful Woman in Malaysia"

Wednesday, June 19, 2013
  • Najib Abdul Razak with Rosmah Mansor
The Prime Minister’s wife, Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor, was anonymously proclaimed the “most powerful woman in Malaysia”. (Photo by Hussein Shaharuddin/The Mole)
A check with the MCA-owned newspaper yielded little. The advertorial, according to the paper's advertising department, was inserted by a “sendirian berhad” company, which The Star declined to identify.  
Of Mohd Najib Abdul Razak’s wife, the advertorial says: “Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor, as wife of the Prime Minister of Malaysia wears many hats. She is the President of the Welfare Association of Minister’s Wives (Bakti). She holds the position of patron of various associations, among others are Children in Hope Foundation, Malaysian Nature Society, Malaysian Society of Orthopedically (sic) Handicapped, Malaysian Aids Council, National Heart Institute Foundation, Thalasemia (sic) Association, National Athletes’ Welfare Association, the Foundation for the Development of Underprivileged Children and many more. She is also the Patron of Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), as well as the President of the Girl Guides Association of Malaysia.”

The text of the advertorial refers to “we”, “our annual snapshot”, “we applied three metrics: money, media presence and impact” and “we select women who go beyond traditional taxonomy of the power elite.”

It ends its proclamation with the slogan “Empowering Women For A Better Future”. 
But who are “the we” behind the award?      
Mystery, mystery.
