The stink in Malaysia's arms procurement: Guess who benefited most?

Sulaiman Kamal | 11:14 PM | | | | | Best Blogger Tips

The continued revelations of corruption within the Defence Mininstry have caused much consternation amongst the public. Even WikiLeaks has reported a diplomatic cable between the US Embassy in Malaysia and the United States that alleges corruption in Malaysia’s defense procurement in which Umno politicians, agents, civil servants and military officials routinely receive 30 per cent “commission” on deals.
The US embassy also noted that many government tenders did not follow procurement rules. Instead, there were shadowy agreements without any tendering process, relying on “money politics” where awards were granted with a cut of funds circulating back to the politician or Umno through different channels.

Time to get rid of errant politicians: What an online survey and Facebook shows

Sulaiman Kamal | 11:05 PM | | | Best Blogger Tips

It could be Nurul Nuha or other viable candidates in any of the contentious constituencies in the next general election. The candidate contesting against an errant incumbent lawmaker could in all probability win hands down.
In a democracy, a politician owes so much to those who have voted him in. A politician who fails to lend his ears to the voice of the people and even the party he belongs to could be unforgivably cast off. Being a politician is not one’s birth right. The moment he incurs the wrath of the people or party, it’s time for him to look for a quick trail out.
Deluding the voters and letting down the hope of the party is not a promising premonition in politics. The sign foretells that he would be booted out from his seat in any future political contest. If a lawmaker thinks otherwise - after betraying the party and voters - he should then have the decorum to go back to the people to get a fresh mandate to crown himself back as the rightful choice of the voters.

Unemployment is expected to rise with the opening of more Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia shops
PETALING JAYA: Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M) shops will spell the end for family-run grocery stores.

While the intention to help Malaysians hard-hit by stagnant incomes and the rising cost of living is admirable, these 1Malaysia stores and similar moves could lead to a negative cycle, the report entitled Pre-Budget 2012 – The Rakyat’s Guide said.

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have confirmed that the body of a woman with 80 per cent burns in Kampung Lembah Jaya Utara, Ampang belonged to a 19-year-old college student.

Who will grab Gaddafi’s oil?

Sulaiman Kamal | 1:40 AM | | | Best Blogger Tips

THE bullets flying over Tripoli mark the end to Colonel Gaddafi's brutal reign in Libya.
And it gives the green light to the world's biggest energy companies – desperate to unlock some of the biggest oil and gas riches in the world.
Libya holds more reserves than any other country in Africa with more than 40billion barrels of "black gold".
Giants including BP all quit the country when the revolution started in February.
BP was just days away from drilling its first exploration well in a vast "block" – Ghadames – to the west of the country.

PAS or Umno losing support over Mat Sabu's remarks

Sulaiman Kamal | 1:30 AM | | | | | Best Blogger Tips

KUALA LUMPUR - The heat is starting to become a bit too hot to handle for PAS after nearly two weeks of fire started by a remark by deputy president Mohamad Sabu, in which he allegedly made a hero out of a man who led the Bukit Kepong massacre, 61 years ago.
The remark put PAS in a position of having to defend Mohamad in the face of a wave of protests not just among the public but also veterans of the security forces and family members of those who were killed in the February 1950 incident.
This is not to mention a barrage of police reports -- over 500 and counting -- lodged against the controversial politician, known by his moniker Mat Sabu.

WikiLeaks: Anwar had "firm information" Najib's aide ordered Altantuya's killing

Sulaiman Kamal | 1:25 AM | | | | | | Best Blogger Tips

A leaked diplomatic note from the US embassy in Malaysia to Washington has asserted that Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim was convinced it was Prime Minister Najib Razak's aide-camp, who had ordered two of the PM's former body guards to kill Altanutya Shaariibuu.
The Mongolian translator, who allegedly helped in the Scorpenes deal, was murdered in Malaysia in 2006 and Anwar also said she had been lovers with both Najib and his close friend Razak Baginda.
The note also said Anwar had in his possession "solid" information, even "documentary evidence" that Najib's frontmen had received kickbacks from the Malaysian government's purchase of Scorpene submarines in 2002 and Sukhoi jet-fighters in 2003.
The US cable also points to the corruption and rot already existing in the Abdullah Badawi administration and eventually hallmarking Najib's tenure as prime minister. The abuse of power has not diminished but grown stronger as Najib fights to stay in power, with corruption and interference entrenching itself even further into all arms of the government machinery, the civil service and the judiciary.
And this perhaps explains the Pandora Box of events currently being played out as Malaysia heads towards its 13th General Election, widely expected to be called later this year or early next year.

I’m still a virgin because of my phobia of MEN

Androphobia ... Emily Day

WITH clammy hands and her breath catching in her throat, Emily Day was absolutely terrified.
It wasn't a fear of spiders or flying that had got her in this state.
For Emily, 26, the fear had been brought on by a MANknocking at the front door.
The recruitment consultant suffers from androphobia — a morbid fear of men.
Emily says: "This fear has stalked me all my life. I can't pinpoint when it started.
"I'm still a virgin. I'm not a lesbian and I'm in no way sexually attracted to women.
"I can look at pictures of men with friends and appreciate they are good-looking, but if I came face-to-face with a man I fancied I'd find it hard to be in the same room without being scared."

Moment the law caught up with civil servant

HANDCUFFED while his tearful child victims cower on a filthy bed beside him, this is the moment ex-Government policy adviser Michael Leach was unmasked as a predatory paedophile.

Yesterday justice finally caught up with the former high-ranking civil servant as he was caged for 12 years by a Cambodian court for using child prostitutes.

Johor MB dishonest about Mat Indera, says constitutional expert

Sulaiman Kamal | 8:23 PM | | | | | Best Blogger Tips

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 9 — Professor Abdul Aziz Bari has accused Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman of hypocrisy after the Johor mentri besar insisted that Ahmad Indera was not a freedom fighter but a communist.

The International Islamic University (IIU) don said that as a former academic himself, Abdul Ghani’s statement had damaged the credibility of his own office and that of the state government which published a 2004 book titled “Pengukir Nama Johor” which names Ahmad, better known as Mat Indera, as a prominent Johor figure.
“It is not proper seeing as the book was published by the state government. It damages the state government... as mentri besar, he should know the contents of the book. It is shameful and foolish,” Abdul Aziz(picture) told The Malaysian Insider.

Pakatan pressures Putrajaya to sink mobile prepaid tax

The six percent tax on prepaid users will come into effect on september 15

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 9 — Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders have demanded that Putrajaya push mobile telecommunications firms to withdraw a proposed plan to pass on a six per cent service tax to prepaid users, or face a nation-wide campaign attacking it over the issue.    
Local telcos announced yesterday that they will begin levying a six per cent service tax for all purchases of prepaid reloads and starter packs beginning September 15.
The telcos also said the service tax on prepaid services was not new but had merely been absorbed by the companies since its introduction in 1998.
PR leaders argued that service tax for prepaid reloads will effectively “punish” younger consumers and those from the lower income group, and that only the telco companies benefited from the move.

Dr M pins Najib’s ratings slide on Bersih rally handling

Sulaiman Kamal | 8:00 PM | | | | | Best Blogger Tips

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 9 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s recent approval ratings decline was due to his administration’s handling of the July 9 Bersih rally, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed has said.
The former prime minister agreed with the findings of Merdeka Center’s latest survey, which saw Najib’s approval rating slide to its lowest point of 59 per cent since last May’s high of 79 per cent.
Merdeka Center had then concluded that the ratings drop was fuelled by rising concerns over the surge in living costs and Putrajaya’s handling of Bersih 2.0.
