"Why does the de facto law minister's son need a bodyguard and how is it that he can afford to drive a Porsche?"

KUALA LUMPUR: Former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) member Robert Phang wants Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Nazri Abdul Aziz, hauled up for alleged abuse of power and for “living beyond his means”.

The philanthropist said this was only proper as Nazri had made statements that the government would not investigate Attorney-General Gani Patail’s alleged abuse of power in a number of cases.

“It is not for the minister to state whether the complicity of Gani should be investigated just as it is not for him to direct government-linked companies to settle their cases with Tajudin Ramli [former Malaysia Airlines executive chairman].

“Nazri may be the Law Minister, but he has no legal or moral authority to tell the police how to carry out the law if he cannot control his lawless son and his bodyguards in connection with the recent assault of a security guard,” he said.

Citing police reports made available to him, Phang claimed that Nazri’s son had even used his (Nazri’s) name card to introduce his entourage.

“Is that not abuse of power? The rakyat are not amused that the case has been classified as ‘Affray’ under Section 160 of the Penal Code. Affray [means] fighting in a public place. His son’s bodyguards trespassed onto private property and assaulted a security guard. How could that be an affray?” he asked.

He said the people also want to know could Nazri’s son afford such luxurious cars – a Porsche driven by him and a Toyota Vellfire by his bodyguards?

“Why did he need bodyguards? What business is he in? Are we seeing further examples of ‘Cowgate’ among the families and sons of ministers who live in absolute opulence whereas the people are told to be thrifty and constantly reminded of rising inflation and high cost of living?”

He said the MACC should seriously look into whether Nazri’s family members are living beyond their means or having unusual wealth.

“After all, that is what all civil servants are subjected to under the MACC Act.

“So, it is better that Nazri controls his anak jantan and his entourage to behave in accordance with the law than for him to meddle in the affairs of the police,” he said.

Phang added that the Inspector-General of Police Ismail Omar must be allowed to “direct the police to act independently”.

“That is how checks and balances in government institutions are maintained so that the people can feel safe and secure. Politicians come and go but the institution of the police cannot be made to succumb to their whims and fancies,” he added.

He also reminded the police to strive to uphold a high standard of professional ethics and to always act without fear or favour in fighting crimes, even if they involved those in high places.

Friend of the police

An outspoken social activist, Phang said while he felt honoured at being awarded the “Friends of the Police Award 2012” by Home Minister (Hishammuddin Hussein) last Saturday, he felt even more compelled to remind the police that they must not be a law enforcement agency that is involved in cover-ups in protecting only the rich and powerful.

He welcomed the announcement by the Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director Syed Ismail Syed Azizan that the police had recommended that charges be pressed against several directors in the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) “Cowgate” scandal.

This had forced Gani to finally charge federal minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil’s husband, Mohamad Salleh Ismail, with criminal breach of trust (CBT). Mohamad Salleh is the NFC chairman.

“It was a very brave and smart move by Syed Ismail… that really helped improve the image of the police in the eyes of the rakyat,” he said.

Phang, who is also the Social Care Foundation chairman, also urged the public not to misconstrue the statement by Hishammuddin about the revelations made by former CCID director Ramli Yusuff of the cover-ups, fixing-ups, fabrications and abuses of power by former Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan and Gani in what is now known as the “Cop-Gate Affair”.

“What Hishammuddin really said was, ‘Prove it, and we will take action. No one is above the law’. So, we must take it positively,” Phang said.
He said that since Hishammuddin has asked for proof, Ismail must now direct his officers to investigate

The Main Issue :

 "Why does the de facto law minister's son need a bodyguard and how is it that he can afford to drive a Porsche?"

Do we need to keep quiet about what had happened in front of our eyes.Besotted and manipulated. Until when things like this should be taken lightly?

Are people like this are too resistant to be taken any action against what they do?. we have the law but if the existing law be abused, misused, should we keep silent and continued to be deprived without any action?

Very embarrassing and a coward if you all continue to remain silent. Do we needtrading the dignity solely because the existence of groups and those who are arrogant, thieves and robbers and uncivilized.

Ask yourself, should we have to choose them for the opportunity to rule forever? The answer lies in your hands ..........
