Anwar..What DNA? “Propaganda-Risky but Brilliant”

Fauwaz Abdul Aziz correspondent from Malaysiakini has this headlines DNA:Anwar’s lawyer reveals the deal. Anwar has said that will not provide a DNA sample unless his stringent conditions are met and he will not consent to giving a DNA sample even if the police obtain a court order. said his lawyer R Sivarasa today. AXN CSI programme has already shown us many ways to get and collect DNA. Why all this difficulties?

Scrapping from your mouth or even when you drink from a glass can be taken as a sample. Maybe our forensics are not up to that calibre or are they? Is this all a political show then in Malaysiabolehland and part of the script:- 30 outriders and 15 four wheel drives accompanying Anwar just to get a full medical DNA profiling. An expert has already said while a DNA sample cannot be manipulated, it however can be planted as evidence. Anwar is not stubborn but it pays to be careful the second time round. The phrase”Once bitten twice shy” is justifiable here.

So what does Anwar do next..? He goes on his politcal roadshow with two ceramahs lined up in Malacca today. Risky of course as all the wolves are out to get him but its a brilliant move. Why this Propaganda? He needs to tell his supporters that he is alive and kicking with the intention of going on a nationwide cermah trail. It must be noted that propaganda is a concerted set of messages aimed at influencing the opinions or behaviors of large number of people. As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda in its most basic sense presents information in order to influence its audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively.

So do you see where Anwar is heading too. He is like John Woo(Director of Red cliff) where he is tasked in pushing a message to the audiences through the big screens. Anwar knows that empires are won by outsmarting and mobilising your armies to corner the enemy. BN though are watching his every move and he knows though. He anticipates what the BN strategists has up their sleeves before they even make their moves. Or did he when he was pulled in before 2pm?

We have fought many battles for BN but this time the Pakatan onslaught is very worrying for many in BN especially with Sarawaks 2010 State elections. 2010 PM says he is handing over to who..? 2010 will Sarawak’s CM wait for the term to expire.? A hour in politics is a long time while every minute changes in the political patterns in the country.

Will we still see Pakatan Rakyat forming the Federal government by September 16th 2008. Was it Anwars brilliant propaganda that has caught the BN with their hands on top of their heads? I didnt say that though, but it seems that everytime he goes on the charge there is an offensive. BN has all the government machineries but are they utilising it to the fullest? Question mark right and Anwar knows that as he was a former DPM and a Minister of Finance?

What does Anwar do? He goes to the focal point of the administration and sways it. But he attaches more importance to wealth than through force. He rewards his foot soldiers with programmes and create for them economic means and this way his troops are always ready. He sends his men to the ground and even before he approaches the information is already available to him.

Where does this all come from? Its from practise,struggle and experiment.He had all the time in the world when he was in Prison and to know the man you need to think like him. Do I know him.hmmm…wish I could. The little girl who read the birthday wish to Nelson Mandela at his 90th birthday,” You are the Star for South africa” while I would gladly read to Anwar,”Show us the New Dawn.” Would he just yet………..

Sungai ASAP has “Parti Rakyat Sarawak in a quagmire”

I picked this report up from Tony Thien Sarawak/Sabah Malaysiakini correspondent which is very comprehensive and also a comment form Uchu Keling “Where are the Dayaks representatives when needed most.? Check the weblog out at Moreover I had a lot of phone calls requesting for the tel numbers of the Dayak YBs who are serving that area. A voter lambasted me and said,” You are PRS and your YBS know who they are and as the peoples representative they should be on the ground.” What is this…we are facing doubleblows(read the full report below)..? 

It is a known fact they said that the YBS are always harping on we will look after the” Dayaks and we are a rural based party” Your PRS YBs have better changed their attitudes or there will be some changes in the next state elections 2010.” What dayak leaders are all this and they are (rumours) that there will be a “PRS FLAG BURNING CEREMONY” tomorrow if the YBs do not make it but sent their representatives.

Aiyo this is bad! Immediately I receive another call on my other cellphone and the voice said ‘As long as we do not burn Sarawak or Malaysia flag its alright.” I have my reservations but I can only inform the YBs machais as their phones are unreachable. The last time the Lundu natives burnt down a companies hut but in Sungai Asap I just wonder what will happen? Another elderly dayak who called me said,”Where are my Dayak Champions..? You have eyes but can’t see and you have ears but can’t hear”

 I may not be a dayak and there may be people who are wondering why I am commenting on this issue. The fact is I have many friends and families who are and have express serious concerns on this.

This has really put PRS in a quagmire. Serious negotiations should be able to solve all this and violence to me will get nowhere. I belong to PRS for now…. and I think there is always a window to address all problems. What do you think..?

The multi-billion-ringgit Bakun hydro dam in central Sarawak has not only displaced 10,000 natives from their original homes in upper Balui but also deprived other natives as the original inhabitants of their native customary rights (NCR) land now occupied by the ‘new arrivals’ or resettlement people at Sungai Asap.

“The Sg Asap land of many thousand hectares which is the resettlement village site is actually ours and we’ve never been compensated for it,” said Jude @ Juda Anye, an educated member of the Kenyah community from Uma Sambop, the nearest of five longhouses in Sg Belaga, to the Bakun dam.

bakun damHe said the Barisan Nasional’s elected representatives for the area, Hulu Rajang MP Billy Abit and Belaga state assemblyperson Liwan Lagang as well as the state land development minister Dr James Masing have not done anything about it despite knowing the facts of the case.

Several members of the village development and security committee (AJKK) have turned to Malaysiakini to highlight their predicament after a team from the land and survey department, armed with machineries, moved into their areas along the Bakun-Tubau road Tuesday to start demolishing houses said to be illegally occupying state land.

The eviction notice was issued about two years ago and was to be enforced before the March 8 parliamentary elections. But after intervention by some quarters, this was postponed indefinitely.

As if losing their NCR lands in Sg Asap, about 20km away, is not enough, what remains of their NCR lands of several thousand hectares nearer the village along the Sg Belaga near the Bakun dam itself has been included in two oil palm leases given out by the state government to two companies – Shin Yang Forestry Sdn Bhd and Ekran Plantation Sdn Bhd.

Court action

Jawa Lawing, 56, and seven other plaintiffs representing themselves and 72 families from Uma Sambop have filed a court action claiming their NCR on the land.

In his affidavit, Joseph Lejau, 55, a teacher, said it is not proper for the state government to issue the leases to the two companies to plant oil palm on their NCR land.

“As this is our NCR land, we should have been consulted and priority should have been given to us to carry out plantation projects,” he said, adding their main reason for instituting legal action is to ask for the land to be returned to them.

“We should also be compensated for the loss of our land and our resources for the last 13 years,” he said in the affidavit filed by their lawyer See Chee How of Baru Bian & Co Advocates. The case is set for hearing next month.

There are more than100 families in Uma Sambop – which has been in existence for more than a century, with the inhabitants originally from the Baram area in northern Sarawak..

The natives have produced evidence to claim NCR on the lands around them, including the existence of the present primary school first established in 1956, structures of old homes and grave sites.

Meanwhile, the natives have taken issue with a statement attributed to Masing which was widely reported in local newspapers yesterday. He said the structures erected on the land now being demolished by the enforcement team were illegally erected on state land.

“The houses have been demolished because that area, I believe, has been compensated and taken over by the government and the NCR on that land has been extinguished,” the minister added.

A spokesperson for the Kenyah group told Malaysiakini that the minister was wrong in saying that, adding that the affected land is clearly NCR and that no compensation has been paid by the government to acquire it.

Malaysiakini learnt that the government needs the land within 100 metres from the main Bakun road for the construction of the overhead transmission cable from the Bakun hydro dam as well as to clear the land of ‘squatters’ to make way for plantation activities by the companies.

Tourism is Politics too.Is it?-Malaysiakini

Athi Veeranggan wrote headlined “Keep Politics out of Tourism” It’s not only happening for Penang my friend. The facts 21 million foreigners visited the country during Visit Malaysia Year 2007, with Penang getting 3.4 million tourists, half of them foreigners.The numbers, however,are small compared to the whopping 92 million tourists Thailand welcomed. What have we got to offer as compared to Thailand? You know the answer than I do……………..

 “The tourism industry should be above politics,” he said. “Our policies from now must be specific, focused and target the dual strategies of attracting more tourists and increasing tourist dollars.”

We take the 11th  “Rainforest World Music Festival” in Sarawak from 11th-13th July 2008. How much “Tourism Dollars” was given by the Governement. Correct me if I am wrong $70,000. Why so meagre as this festival has generated millions in foreign exchange and tourists from all corners of the world have been descending down to Sarawak. The international classed hotels,budget hotels,bed and breakfast inns,lodging houses were filled to the brim with tourists. Even the food and beverage outlets are not spared. Where did it go wrong…? 

PM and wife even came and they brought the rain with them but it did not dampen the spirits of the people. Has the Sarawak Tourism Board Executive outlived her stay? They say in the tourism industry one has to be innovative,creative and above all bring the tourism dollars in. We do not want to hound someone out from their throne but we do want to shake the chair as three days of festivities do not augur well for Sarawak. There should be a change says some in the industry. “We need new faces and challengers.”

 Politics play a major part in Tourism too and the person needs also to have that background.It’s up to the authorities to make up their minds…….Tourism dollars has always been a part of a country. Look now at China,Vietnam and Cambodia…..So Sarawak get a move on and also Penang..


Chan Kok Leong of Malaysiakini has “Can you imagine – I was asked to stay in the lock-up overnight, spent five-and-a-half hours answering questions and I’ve not seen Saiful’s report.

What has happened in MALAYSIABOLEHLAND the last 48hours? Anything of any significance or New?

  1. Anwars ACA visit
  2. “Balaclavas” Police Modus Operandi
  3. 6hours Questioning
  4. DNA profiling 2Hours in KLH
  5. “Released then Detained”
  6. Morning 1/2 hour Statement 
  7. Parliamentarians exchange of words over Police report
  8. KJ and Mukhriz “Best Friends” 
  9. PC by Anwar 
  10. True/Genuine says Dr.Mahathir of Anwar’s Sodomy
  11. Syed Hamid says DNA will not be fabricated
  12. Police PC to get court order for DNA
  13. Personal Vendetta says Anwar of his detention

You will be angry or stressed if you are subjected to all this? Many ordinary politicians/high profiled businessmen/dignitaries would have caved in but Anwar’s1998 experience has prepared him for this. Why then the anger?

He he was treated like a “major criminal” and needed medical treatment after a night in a bare cell at Kuala Lumpur police headquarters which aggravated a back injury. “Dumped in a cell to sleep on a cold cement floor with nothing… “I don’t deserve this – no Malaysian deserves this. Why treat me like a major criminal?”

OK ANWAR I have mention it that the Police have done wrong with 1. Balaclavas now I have to add in also 2.Detention Room. (Don’t forget Sdr. Anwar when you are PM please ensure you have special room for Political detainees.) I’m not being sarcastic. That would at least see one of the many changes. (DAP like to say change.Add this In.) The government should also put a “proposal” up for this especially in big cities of Malaysia. That’s business proposal right..!

To me Anwar is also very smart as he uses the acts in  “Humanitarian Affairs” where United Nations Resolutions 146/82 will also cover this. It does look into “alleviating of sufferings and maintainess of human dignity” So this statement, “It appears that the events of the last few days, the nature of my unwarranted arrest, my overnight incarceration which was actually absolutely unnecessary, were an act of personal vengeance against me,” Anwar says. Are you with Anwar..? What is your say on all this..?

We know that the governement has had the necessary meetings and detailed every operations or projects but its always the “chain of command” that is not carried out. We do not want to point fingers again but there must be a “post mortem’ and where were the mistakes and someone should be the “fall”guy. The public perception of the Police and the AG office  is at its lowest and this trend should be stopped. Foreign Investor confidence is rattled and Malaysiabolehland is bleeding at all seams………There will be more and we need to stitch up all the openings……
