Bersih 2.0 “Sabah Radio Station..??”

Has Sarawakian DJ Peter John aka Apai orang Utan left the UK based Radio Free Sarawak to be in Sabah? It is on everyones lips that he has seek greener pastures or apparently he has been”sacked” or asked to go willingly. Certainly one has to interview the man himself as our source says,” he is now in Malaysia and you can contact him.” Did we meet him..hmmm?

Well this is really getting the rumour mill up and about as last weekend Bugi Wijaya our Sabah correspondent sent us this story.

SAPP launches its alternative online radio so that listeners in Sabah will have an alternative radio (online) to provide clean, brave and truth on news and issues affecting Malaysia and Sabah in particular.  The launching with the theme Bersih, Berani, Benar is held in conjunction with BERSIH 2.0 and despite the intimidation of the police and the city hall enforcement unit.

The Radio as launched with the unveiling of the signboard at the party’s headquarters on 9th July, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. by President of SAPP, Datuk Yong Teck Lee.

The event was also participated by members of the Sabah Bersih, MCLM and UBF. UBF Chief Datuk Jeffrey Kitingan, Atama @ Andrew Ambrose Mudi, Co-ordinator Chairman for Bersih Sabah and also chairman of MCLM adhoc committee of Sabah, Ronnie Klassen of PKR also came to attend the launching.

Yong, in his opening address through a recorded radio message said the event was spurred by Bersih 2.0 call for free and fair elections so the theme for its Radio SabahTv will be “BERSIH, BERANI, BENAR”. He said SAPP supports the 8 points of Bersih 2.0 and to stop the electoral corruption by the BN government.

Earlier in the wee hours of the morning, the police tried to questioned the SAPP Youth on the launching especially on the theme with the words BERSIH and the yellow backdrop.  They backed off after the arrival of assembly woman for Luyang Melanie Chia Chui Ket and her husband Edwin Liew.

There was a strong presence of the police force during the launching which caused the local present lamenting that they are the ones creating the jam in the area.

Najib’s fixed deposit State of Sabah is under real threat and it seems that many in UMNO hierarchy are pushing for a separate State elections first before the GE13. The radio station does have a big impact on the voters mindset and if DJ Apai Orang Utan is roped in to assist the local Sabahan DJs it will certainly create more than a stir/ripple but a whirlpool of uncertainties in Sabah.

Bugi says,”Yellow is the colour now which BN/UMNO is so afraid. It was once Green(associated with PAS) Orange (Hindraf)  and also Black (Teoh Beng Hock) The time has come for BN Sabah to stand out and be counted.It is indeed high time that the internet cyber team rolls into Sabah to assist the machinery which is still living in the past era of winning the hearts and minds of the voters. The truth hurts and if Sabah BN still think they can steamrolled the opposition they just have to look back at these two dates 308 and 416.”

Sabah Radio Station will Hurt YOU..Sabahans have seen the light.

    EYEWITNESS I had, long before July 9, already made up my mind to attend the Bersih 2.0 rally in Kuala Lumpur. I missed the 2007 rally, so I was very determined to make it to this one.

    I even started a ‘Penangites attending Bersih 2.0 rally’ event page on Facebook, to try to see how many Penangites would go, and maybe arrange to go together.

    NONEUnfortunately, with all the clamping down the police were carrying out, I was advised not to go in a big group. In the end, I went with two of my Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia (SABM) Penang friends, Stanley and Howie, in Howie’s car.

    We took along our yellow coloured T-shirts, but we did not wear them. We hid them in the car, and later, Howie and Stanley hid theirs under the clothes they were wearing, while I hid mine in my backpack. I had painted my nails yellow, for I figured that if I could not get to wear a yellow T-shirt, at least I would have something yellow on!

    We left Penang early, at 5am, and when we reached Sungei Buloh about 9am, we found the road to the KL city centre jammed up because of police roadblocks. We then turned off to Bangsar and parked the car, and from there took the LRT to Masjid Jamek.

    It was relatively quiet at Masjid Jamek, since we were early. Some policemen were seen loitering, here and there. We decided to walk to Jalan Bukit Bintang and hang around the shopping malls. Since all the roads had been blocked, it was a breeze strolling along the city roads, which would have been jam packed on normal days.

    We hung around some shopping malls, and at the same time looked out for updates on the rally from Stanley’s Twitter and from a friend of mine in KL. We decided that we should join a group, and learning from my KL friend about a group gathering in Chinatown, we headed for that place.

    Thank God, there was a taxi driver who was willing to drive us there but he dropped us off near Central Market, from where we walked to Chinatown.

    ‘And the excitement built up in me’

    Indeed there was a large group there – about 1,000 people. They were standing around, chatting, but after 10 minutes, they decided to march. A few young men led the march, with their arms locked. I felt excitement building up in me as I joined in the march.

    As we walked, we chanted lots of slogans, including “Bersih! Bersih!”, “Reformasi, reformasi!”, “Allahu-Akbar!” Although I’m not a Muslim, I joined in the last cry too. It was a good feeling!

    NONEI didn’t know where we were going to march to but I couldn’t care. As we passed people who were standing by the sides of the roads, we shouted to them to join us. Some of them clapped and cheered as we marched past them By then, it was around 1pm.

    We then stopped in front of Menara Maybank and I realised there was someone in front of the bank, speaking, who I later learned was Hatta Ramli of PAS. By then, we had reached the Maybank headquarters, and Howie became separated from me and Stanley.

    Stanley and I were busy taking pictures. I didn’t realise that the crowd had grown so big until Stanley said to me “Wow! Big crowd” and looking all round me, I was totally astounded! There were as many as 5,000 people. It seemed that some other groups marching from Puduraya had merged with our group at Menara Maybank.

    We stood there listening to the speeches. In between the speeches, there was plenty of chanting, of course: “Bersih! Bersih!”, “Tukar, tukar! Tukar SPR!”, “Reformasi! Reformasi!”

    As I stood there and turned to people around me, whoever I got into eye contact with smiled at me. It was a ‘feel good’ moment (borrowed from NTV7) for me, realising that all of us felt the true 1Malaysian spirit right there. We were strangers, yet we smiled and talked to one another like old friends.

    NONEThough totally immersed in the speeches and the chanting, I suddenly heard someone shout out, “Bersedia ya! Water cannon akan datang.” Five minutes after he said that, I spied a menacing red truck moving towards us… and without warning, jets of water shot out! Everybody screamed, and ran helter-skelter! I quickly ran up the stalled escalator at Menara Maybank, to enter the lobby.

    As I was about to reach the top, some people who were already up there shouted and ran down. It was like near panic. They pushed us, who were going up, and we who were going up, pushed them too! Some of them jumped over the wall near the escalator.

    It then dawned on me why they were rushing down – tear gas was rising into the lobby! For a moment, I didn’t know what to do. Should I go up or should I jump over the wall? But I was afraid I might not be able to jump, so I decided to move on to the lobby.

    Since the lobby was high above the road, only a little tear gas reached it. Still, my eyes started to sting. The smell was terrible! About 20 people in the lobby were gasping and coughing. One young man was literally crawling on the floor. I guess he was fully hit by the tear gas when he was down on the road.

    I quickly took out my packet of salt, bottle of water and mini towel (yes, I came prepared). I put some salt into my mouth, poured the water on the towel and covered my face with it.

    Then, a man walked up to me to ask me for some salt, which he took to the man crawling on the ground in pain. Others also started to pinch some of my salt. However, I was not the only one with salt. I heard one man going around, calling out, “Garam! Garam!”

    Police busy arresting people

    I decided to stay in the Menara Maybank lobby until the police left. I had a good view of all that was happening on the road. Two FRU trucks were parked right in front of the building, with several policemen standing in front of the trucks. I also saw some people being arrested and taken to the trucks.

    It was then that I called Stanley to find out where he was. He was at Puduraya and told me that they were trapped there, with police at both ends of the road! He advised me not to come down from the Maybank lobby, for police were still busy running around on the road arresting people!

    So I stayed up there and waited. About 2pm, I heard another round of tear gas being fired, but luckily it was quite far from where I was. This brought another round of people running to the lobby again and five minutes later, I head shouts from the police and one policeman came running to the escalator.

    NONEI was shocked, for I thought the police was coming up to the lobby to arrest the few of us who were still there. Where could we run? Nowhere! However, the policeman stopped at the foot of the escalator and looked around, before moving away. Phew!

    Then it started to rain. What a relief, I thought to myself, that the rain came just minutes after the second round of tear gas was fired. The rain will lessen the effect of the tear gas. Even the heaven is on our side!

    I waited until the rain stopped. Then the woman security guard on duty at Menara Maybank came to chase us off. She was quite polite though. She said that when the tear gas and water cannons were unleashed earlier, she had given us chance to come up and remain in the lobby but now that the police had left, she wanted us to leave the lobby. Fair enough.

    I went down and called Howie to find out where he was. He was with a group on Jalan Hang Jebat and I decided to join him there. I was pleasantly surprised to see a large group there, standing right in the centre of the traffic intersection.

    Howie was was having fun with his Bersih headband, ‘canvassing’ for people to take pictures with him wearing the headband. “Come on,” he said, “For souvenir!” Quite a number of people obliged

    We were standing there for some 15 minutes, just chatting, when we heard some noise from a distance away and to our delight, we saw a group of people marching towards us. We all waved to them and called out “Yeh! Yeh!” while some clapped.

    When this group reached us, we all started to march towards the Merdeka Stadium. We marched and chanted, while some were chatting cheerfully with one another. The atmosphere there was simply great!

    An elderly beggar with a small, cute cat on his shoulder was walking with us too and many people teased him. Howie even put a Bersih headband on the cat and took a photograph.

    When asked him if he supported Bersih, he said “Memang lah. Tetapi saya mana boleh bersih. Saya tak cukup wang untuk beli sabun…” Then someone responded, “Sebab BN lah – semua barang naik.” Everybody laughed.

    There was a crowd there already present as approached the stadium, and together, we probably made up some 10,000 people. Of course we were not allowed to enter the stadium, so we just stood there and talks more about what was going on around us… and, of course, having a field day taking photographs, with Howie again ‘canvassing’ for people to take pictures with him and his Bersih headband.

    NONEAt 4pm, Howie received an SMS saying the Bersih 2.0 organising committee wanted us to disperse. Well, the original planned rally was from 2pm to 4pm, so naturally, at 4pm, we had to disperse. Howie and a few others shouted “Bersurai, bersurai! Dah pukul empat!” and remarkably, everyone did! We were truly disciplined!

    Howie and I decided to catch the LRT to Bangsar, where our car was but to our disappointment, the LRT service had been shut down. So we walked to the KTM railway station to catch the Komuter to KL Sentral.

    The station was crowded with Bersih supporters, all waiting to board the train. When it arrived and we tried to rush in, it was sardine-packed! However, nobody complained as at that moment, we knew we were all Malaysians with one aim – to seek clean and fair elections.

    Somebody in the train even shouted softly, “Bersih!” And someone jokingly said the train will take us straight to jail!

    We reached KL Sentral and met up with Stanley, and at 6pm, when the LRT service was resumed, we took it back to Bangsar, got into our car and headed back to Penang.

    I had spent about six hours walking up and down much of the inner KL city! Masjid Jamek, Bukit Bintang, Puduraya, Pasar Seni, Chinatown, Jalan Sultan, Jalan Hang Jebat and the surrounding areas.

    My legs ached like mad the next day, but it was well worth it. I walked for democracy in our country. I walked as an Anak Bangsa Malaysia who wants to save her beloved country.

    What I found most enriching from the experience was a sense of euphoria to see people of all races, sizes and colours, coming together in a spirit of unity and joy, and with one common aim. This is truly what we call 1Malaysia!

    A senior government valuer testified today that at the amount quoted for the controversial Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) land including interest payment, however, an excess of interest of RM720million was still paid.

    Former Valuation and Property Services Department (JPPH) director Sahari Mahadi told the Kuala Lumpur High Court hearing former transport minister Dr Ling Liong Sik’s corruption trial that six percent was included when Port Klang Authority (PKA) decided to buy the 999.5 acres of land from Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) for RM1,088,456,000.

    Sahari, the second witness to testify today, confirmed the prosecution’s claim that PKA overpaid KDSB by including another 7.5 percent per annum which caused the total amount to inflate to a staggering RM1.8billion.

    Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Tun Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah asked Sahari to explain the cost for the 830 acres out of the 999.5 acres land which was sold at RM25 per square foot (psf).

    Sahari replied that it did and the RM25 psf was the amount quoted in the event the government chooses to defer payments over a period of 10 years as agreed by the buyer and the seller.

    The 63-year-old retiree explained to Justice Ahmadi Asnawi that the JPPH headquarters concluded their valuation and decided to give their price per square foot at RM18 at first.

    However, KDSB, based on their own private valuation findings, had offered to add “special value”, thereby hiking the cost per square foot to RM25, said Sahari.

    “Was the RM25 psf an offered price (harga tawaran) or claimed price (harga tuntutan)?” asked Tun Abdul Majid.

    “(…) KDSB asked for RM23.15 psf or higher but this amount was not agreed by JPPH and both parties finally agreed a price for the special value at RM20.75 psf which was rounded up to RM21,” replied Sahari.

    He added that if PKA was to pay in cash for the land the price per square feet would be at RM21, however, if payment is delayed over a period of 10 years the cost would be RM25 psf.

    The court adjourned soon after as the prosecution had left behind documents that were supposed to be submitted.

    Amended principle and alternative charges

    Ling today claimed trial to amended principal and alternative cheating charges.

    According to the main charge, he was accused of deceiving the Malaysian government between Sept 25 and Nov 6, 2002 by deceiving the cabinet into agreeing on the land purchase in Pulau Indah for the PKFZ project according to the terms agreed to between Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd and Port Klang Authority.

    In the amended charges, the prosecution said that Ling concealed facts regarding an interest of 7.5 percent per annum in addition to the cost of the land which was priced at RM25 per sq ft which summed up to RM1,088,456,000.

    On the first count, Ling is alleged to have deceived the cabinet into agreeing to the terms of purchase between Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) and Port Klang Authority (PKA) and giving its approval for the purchase.

    He was said to have committed the deception with the knowledge it could cause wrongful losses to the government and despite being bound by a fiduciary duty to protect the government.

    The charge, under Section 418 of the Penal Code, carries a maximum sentence of seven years imprisonment or fine or both upon conviction.

    Ling faces an alternative charge of similar cheating for deliberately concealing facts related to the project from the cabinet.

    The charge, under Section 417 of the Penal Code, is punishable by imprisonment of up to five years or fine or both upon conviction.

    The trial resumes tomorrow morning with Sahari on the stand.

    What does M want ? corpses or Votes ?

    1. (C) The police, political leaders, a human rights official in the East Malaysia state of Sabah recently expressed their concerns to us about rising crime and the security impact from the high number of foreigners – both legal and illegal – residing in the state. Sabah’s Acting Police Commissioner said illegal migrants and other foreigners committed three out of four violent crimes in the state, but he did not address terrorist threats or transnational crime syndicates.

    On other issues, a Sabah state minister from Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi’s political party, UMNO, criticized the PM’s intellectual capacity and said the PM’s inner circle gives him “bad advice.” The minister predicted the UMNO national assembly in November would be “a timid affair.” One of the 16 commissioners from Malaysia’s government-funded national human rights commission (Suhakam) told us the government views Suhakam as “a pest.”

    Seconding other comments from the Suhakam commissioner about the large influx of foreigners into Sabah, two state assemblymen expressed trepidation about the state’s security situation. The pending U.S. Border Control Assessment Initiative (ref A) will assist our efforts to better understand the security ramifications of Sabah’s porous borders and identify ways the U.S. can assist. End Summary.

    Police Face Challenges from Criminals – And Parliament

    2. (C) Sabah’s Acting Police Commissioner, Mohd Bakri Zinin, told us on October 4 that “illegal migrants and other foreigners” account for about three-fourths of violent crimes committed in the state. He said almost all the crime was locally based and that transnational crime syndicates were “not much of a problem” in Sabah. Zinin notably did not address the issue of terrorists either located in or transiting Sabah. When asked about the potential for human trafficking into the Malaysian federal territory island of Labuan, near Sabah’s western coast, Zinin stated flatly, “There is no trafficking problem in Labuan. Those women are all volunteers who claim to be victims when caught.” (Note: Septel addresses prostitution on Labuan. End Note.)

    3. (C) Zinin criticized a recently enacted amendment to the criminal procedure code that eliminated prosecutors’ usage of police-obtained confessions in trying criminal defendants. Confessions are now only admissible if done in front of a magistrate.

    Zinin said the amendment “will hurt our ability to get convictions.” He stated, “As a result, we’ll likely make greater use of (Malaysia’s four preventative detention laws), even though we know this will bring criticism from Suhakam and the NGOs.”

    (Note: The laws he referenced are the Internal Security Act, Restricted Residence Act, Dangerous Drugs Act, and Emergency Ordinance. They allow the police and the internal security ministry to jointly incarcerate individuals for extended periods without trial, in cases where police lack sufficient evidence to obtain a criminal conviction. From our local sources, we believe 700 – 1,000 Malaysians suspected of criminal activity are currently jailed under the Emergency Ordinance alone. End Note.)

    UMNO Minister Swipes at Prime Minister Abdullah…

    4. (C) While making unsolicited comments about Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi’s public image and job performance, Sabah’s Minister of Youth and Sports, Masidi Manjun, told us, “Abdullah is not an intellectual and is a bit slow in his thinking.” He said the PM is “getting bad advice from his inner circle” regarding both the content and “scripted shouting” of some of his latest speeches to his ethnic Malay political base.

    Manjun, who formally headed Sabah’s primary government-funded think tank (the Institute of Development Studies), told us of a private comment made by former PM Mahathir during a recent trip to Japan. Mahathir reportedly told a senior Japanese politician, “Japan is the home of the rising sun, and Malaysia is home to the rising son-in-law.”

    This was a reference to PM Abdullah’s son-in-law Khairy Jamaluddin, who serves as the deputy president of UMNO Youth.

    With Mahathir’s recent failure to be elected as an UMNO delegate at the party’s national assembly in November, Manjun predicted the assembly will be “a timid affair,” with no major pronouncements or surprises.

    …And Foreigners in His State

    5. (C) Manjun complained that Sabah was “flooded with foreigners.” He singled out Filipino Muslims from Mindanao as “especially troublesome.” He said, “They are not as devout as us.” He told us the state’s Filipinos were “using our social services and not integrating into society,” and that “vagrancy and violence” were rampant within Sabah’s Filipino community. He called Sabah’s maritime and land borders “very porous” and expressed concern that Sabah’s foreign residents were starting to become politically active.

    He acknowledged, however, the economic importance of Sabah’s foreign population. With regard to Sabah’s large number of illegal foreign workers, estimated to total over 750,000, Manjun said, “We need them here, or our economy would collapse.”

    Fallout from UMNO-Fueled Population Boom in Sabah

    6. (C) UMNO’s main Sabah-based partner party, PBS, remains publicly indignant about UMNO grants of citizenship and related voting rights during the 1990s to over 600,000 foreigners (predominantly Muslims from Indonesia and Mindanao), in return for those individuals’ votes in Sabah’s state assembly elections.

    Two PBS state assemblymen, Ching Eng Leong and Samson Chin Chee Tsu, told us on October 4 that former PM Mahathir began the initiative prior to the 1994 state assembly election, in order to ensure UMNO’s political takeover of Sabah. UMNO’s control was further solidified during the 1999 state election, as UMNO granted more foreigners citizenship and voting rights under what came to be known as “Project Mahathir.”

    According to Samson, PBS switched from its opposition party status in 2000 and allied itself with UMNO. Ching said, “UMNO had completely taken over by that time. They paid off our party leaders and several assemblymen in cash, and threatened to freeze our constituencies out of federal and state funding if we didn’t join them.”

    Since 2000, the state assembly has remained 100 percent controlled by the UMNO-led coalition; opposition parties in Sabah have no elected representatives.

    7. (C) Suhakam recently researched the allegations surrounding Project Mahathir and concurred with PBS’ findings. According to Suhakam, Sabah’s legal resident population increased 362 percent to 2.6 million from 1970 to 2000, compared to a population increase of only 135 percent over the same time period in the neighboring state of Sarawak.

    This substantial increase in Sabah’s legal residents excludes an influx of over 750,000 foreigners holding invalid identity cards and visas – or no documents at all – according to Suhakam. According to Samson, a UK-educated lawyer whose electoral district encompasses Tawau on the east coast near the Indonesian border, Filipinos and Indonesians outnumber Malaysians 3 to 1 along Sabah’s east coast from Sandakan to Tawau.

    He said, “The security situation in the area is not good.” He also claimed that corruption in Tawau is rampant among police and immigration officers. He said it had “tripled over the last 30 years.”

    He and his wife recently refused to attend an event that gathered public and private sector leaders on the resort island of Mabul, off the east coast of Sabah, as he feared an attack on the gathering by Mindanao-based Muslim extremists. The event took place without incident.

    Government Ignores Suhakam

    8. (C) With regard to the plight of Malaysia’s largely impoverished rural indigenous persons in Borneo, Suhakam’s Vice Chairman and resident Commissioner in Sabah, Simon Sipaun, echoed the sentiments expressed to us by his fellow Suhakam commissioner in Sarawak (ref B).

    He said he spends most of his time on indigenous persons’ issues and lamented the government’s lack of support for Suhakam. He said, “We’re viewed as a pest.”

    Sipuan told us that prisons in the state are “50 percent to 75 percent overcrowded” and that about three-fourths of all prisoners are illegal migrants and other foreigners. He described conditions in the state’s three illegal migrant detention centers as “overcrowded and generally poor.”

    Sipuan felt the large number of Filipinos on the state’s east coast represented a potential security threat “if they decide to become more politically active, or if parts of Mindanao become more autonomous.”


    9. (C) Among all Malaysian states, Sabah faces uniquely severe border control and related security pressures. Filipinos and Indonesians move easily – and often illegally – between Sabah and their respective home countries.

    UMNO leaders in Sabah and Kuala Lumpur will likely continue to remain silent with regard to the deleterious effects of Project Mahathir, as this initiative achieved its primary goal (UMNO political dominance) many years ago; they consider it “old news.” In any case, a significant reduction in Sabah’s foreign-born population could only be reversed in the near term through an UMNO-led effort to round up and deport the very workers that drive Sabah’s natural resource-based economy.

    While Malaysia periodically launches campaigns to expel illegal workers, even PBS’ leaders concede this is highly unlikely to be carried out to the point of seriously harming the state’s economy. The U.S. Border Control Assessment Initiative (BCAI) focused on the Sulu and Sulawesi sea areas of Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines will enhance our understanding of the security challenges facing Sabah and ways we can assist. We currently are working to obtain GOM approval for the Sabah field portion.

    Sabah should follow the Penang Government of politics without corruption,
    I am from Penang and you are welcome to see the model in my KK office.

    KOTA KINABALU: Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak has been urged to deal with the issues of rampant corruption, illegal immigrants and the ‘fear’ to take corrective actions immediately.
    Describing the issues as the ‘three axis of evil’ in Sabah, Senator Chin Su Phin said the federal government’s move to offer amnesty to illegals with only worsen the situation in the state.
    He contended that presently one out of every four persons in Sabah is an illegal immigrant and cautioned that with the amnesty programme announced by Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein coming into effect in July, the ratio of Sabahan to illegal immigrant could soon be 1:2 due to the wave of unrestricted entry of illegal immigrants into the state.
    “Very soon, Sabahans will no longer feel like they are residing in Malaysia due to the massive change in population make-up.
    “Although the amnesty will benefit the plantation and the construction bosses, the majority of Sabahans will lose out.
    “Our health care services have already reached maximum capacity.
    “Hospitals no longer have the capacity to provide proper health care services to the locals and patients have to wait in long queues together with the aliens,” he said.
    Chin said that recently the Kundasang Development and Security Committee chairman Mien Bangaloi complained to the local authority that immigrants, (known by their Bahasa Malaysia acronym of PTI) were also trading in competition with the local farmers at a tourist resort area in Kundasang.
    “Instead of being employed in the farms or working as hawker’s assistants, the PTIs have instead become bosses in their own right.
    “The PTIs can sell their farm produce at a lower price compared to the local thus depriving the local of making any reasonable profits.
    “Surely this will not contribute to a high income society as envisage by the Prime Minister.
    “The population of foreigners are continuing to grow by the hundreds in remote locations like Masilau and Monteki (in Kundasang) and complaints of the security committee in Ranau district are unable to stop the flood of migration of foreign workers,” said Chin, who is also Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) deputy president.

    Amnesty won’t do
    Chin also dismissed the rationale of the amnesty that vice-activities such as money-laundering, terrorist activities and drug smuggling would be minimised as an absolute fallacy.
    “Simple logic will tell you that the more foreigners we have, the more the vice activities will increase and the more our police force will have to handle criminal cases.
    “Opening our front door to foreigners will only make way for Sabah to be flooded with aliens.
    “Who can guarantee that the time will not come for the foreigners to declare their own Sultan in Sabah when their numbers have multiplied and their population eventually overtake the local population,” he said, citing the self-proclamation of Mohd Akjan Datu Muhammad as the “Sultan of Sulu” at the latter’s residence in Likas early this year.
    Chin supported the recent call by Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) youth leader cum Assistant Minister of Youth and Sports, Jahid Jahim for an investigation to determine Akjan’s citizenship.
    He said Akjan was born in Jambangan, Nipah-Nipah Sulu in the Southern Philippines on Nov 23, 1957 and “from listening to his Filipino slang, you can tell that we have a classic case where a foreigner has not only become boss but also a sultan in our beloved state of Sabah.
    “There will be more bosses and sultans if we do not handle this ‘mother of all problems’ in Sabah with a comprehensive strategy.
    “It is public knowledge that Akjan was arrested and detained under the ISA in the mid 1990s after he was allegedly caught with a briefcase containing about 2,000 Malaysian identity cards at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport on a return flight from Kuala Lumpur.
    “It was alleged that he was selling the ICs to Filipino illegal immigrants in Sabah for between RM500 and RM3,000,” Chin said.
    On the issue of wasteful spending, corruption, abuse of power and poor delivery system, Chin pointed out that Akjan’s company Nautica Technologies Sdn Bhd was awarded the GOF headquarters development project in Kinarut in 2004 for RM214 million.
    He recalled that the project ground to a halt due to incompetence and the government had to bail the contractor out.
    Chin also cited the the 179KM Kalabakan-Sepulut road project completed early this year at a cost of RM565 million.
    “The road cost RM3 million per kilometer to build. But market estimates RM1 million per kilometer was enough to build the gravel road.
    “So, where did the RM358 million go to?” he said, adding that on June 18 State Public Works Department Director John Anthony announced that another RM270 Million had been approved for the upgrading the failed road.
    “Instead of investigating why the road failed to perform, another opportunity for corruption has arisen for upgrading the road.
    “Why do the people of Sabah again have to pay for corruption and incompetence?”
    “This is one of the reasons why Sabah is still lagging behind in many aspects and is labeled the poorest state in the country, especially in vital basic infrastructure despite spending billions of development fund in Sabah,” he said.

    ‘Civilised robbers’
    Chin said that another Sabah mega project is the Tanjung Aru-Tenom railway project which was tended out for RM330 million and targeted to be completed in May 2008, but now requires an additional RM300 million for its completion.
    He contended the Sabah Railway project has gone off-track, it is incomplete and also RM40 million had been overpaid to the contractor.
    “License to govern does not mean license to be corrupt and some politicians will have to learn this the hard way.
    “One wonders when there will be enough awareness in this country that citizens would learn to question the ‘civilised robbers’, question them, fight them and fix them.
    “Some people termed corruption as highway robbery, I say that unrestrained and unchecked “god –like” power is the main contributor to our poor transparency index of 4.4 out of 10 perfect points.
    “Malaysia barely passed the transparency test in 2008 with a score of 5.5, today we have failed with a score of 4.4 out of 10.
    “Since Sabah is the poorest state in Malaysia and poverty being a hugh indicator of corruption, I can say that our own Sabah Transparency index is 1 out of 10 points,” said Chin during his maiden speech at the Dewan Rakyat recently.
    Chin’s LDP party is a member of the Sabah Barisan Nasional coalition.

    Haris Ibrahim has been barred from entering the state and was sent back to KL on the next available flight.

    (Free Malaysia Today) – Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM) president Haris Ibrahim has been barred from entering Sabah and was sent back to Kuala Lumpur on the next available flight.

    Contacted by FMT prior to his departure, the lawyer said he had landed at the Kota Kinabalu airport at about 3.15pm.

    “I have just been told that ‘atas arahan atasan’ (orders from a higher authority), I have been denied entry. I am still at the immigration awaiting details,” he said.

    He later added that the formal notice stated that he was detained under Section 65 (1) of the Immigration Act 1959/1963 and that he had been denied entry on the direction of state authority.

    Asked if he was there for MCLM-related activities, Haris said that the movement had some work with political parties and NGOs in Sabah.

    “I presume the order (to prevent entry to Sabah) is related (to the political activities in Sabah),” he added.

    Haris, who was previously attached to election watchdog Bersih 2.0, was also denied entry into Sarawak twice — in April during the state election and September this year.

    It is believed that he was stopped from entering Sarawak under the similar law.

    Under the Malaysia Agreement, Sarawak and Sabah have the power to bar anyone from entering the states, including persons from Peninsular Malaysia.

    Malaysians Mourn The “Lost Decade Of Corruption” Where RM 1,077 Billion Of Illicit Money Had Been Illegally Siphoned Out Of Our Country From 2000-2009.
    By Lim Guan Eng
    Malaysians mourn the “the lost decade of corruption”, where RM 1,077 billon of illicit money had been illegally siphoned out of our country from 2000-9. According to the Washington-based financial watchdog Global Financial Integrity (GFI), in 2009 alone RM 150 billion (US$47 billion) in illicit money was illegally siphoned out of Malaysia.
    This RM 150 billion amount is in addition to the staggering loss of RM927 billion (US$291 billion) over a period of nine years between 2000 and 2008. The GFI report has shocked us all, with results showing that Malaysia is now ranked one of the top 5 countries in the world in terms of highest illicit capital flight.
    The latest GFI report, ‘Illicit Financial Flows from Developing Countries Over the Decade Ending 2009′, is penned by economists Sarah Freitas and Dev Kar, who is a former senior economist at the International Monetary Fund. According to the authors, the estimates are based on balance of payments, bilateral trade and external debt data reported by member countries to the IMF and the World Bank.
    They stressed that these illicit outflows are basically “unrecorded capital leakages through… illicit transfers of the proceeds of bribery, theft, kickbacks and tax evasion.” In other words, it refers to corruption money or black money that is obtained illegally and worse, not even re-circulated into our economy.
    This whopping and unaccountable loss of more than RM1 trillion as a result of corruption or black money will never be recovered. The fact that RM1 trillion worth of corruption was generated and subsequently siphoned out of our country makes the last 10 years the lost decade of corruption for Malaysia.
    It is time that we get rid of the robber barons in this country. It is precisely projects like the Port Klang Free Trade Zone, the RM52 billion Bumi share scandal, the RM250 million NFC “cows and condos” fiasco, the half a billion ringgit “commission” for the purchase of two Scorpene submarines, and the multitude of government-linked projects that run into massive cost overruns with zero accountability, including the RM3.7 billion over-expenditure by government departments reported in the latest Auditor-General’s report, that contribute to Malaysia now becoming the king of black money.
    No wonder Malaysia performed dismally in the latest 2011 Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index(CPI), dropping 4 spots to No. 60 out of 183 countries this year from No. 56 out of 178 last year. Malaysia’s 2011 CPI dropped for the third year running, slipping to 4.3 this year, leaving it in 60th place out of 183 countries compared with 37th place when Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi took over as prime minister in 2003. TI Malaysia Deputy President Mohammad Ali even noted that Malaysia’s CPI has continued to decline as “elements of state” that facilitated ‘grand corruption’ were still prevalent.
    The latest expose by GFI of RM 1,077 billion in black of corruption money illegally taken out of the countrys explain the extent of losses suffered by Malaysians. DAP regrets that the BN government has dismissed this reputable study carried out by an independent and prestigious body. Malaysians must unite to save this country from BN, clean up corruption and try to get back this RM 1,077 billion of illicit money.

    When Bank Negara is completely helpless to stem this illicit outflow and movement of billions over the past years, MACC was indeed very efficient to control corruption in 2 instances.

    1. They were directly responsible in the investigation of the alleged mishandling of a mere few thousand ringgit and causing the death of Teoh Beng Hock in the course of their investigation right in their premises.

    2. They were directly responsible for causing another death on the Customs Officer, Sarbani, for the fictitious billion he was alleged to have been involved.

    This is Malaysia showing her best how things work. Putrajaya style. Barisan style. UMNO style.

    Is this still the Government we all want when we cast our votes in GE13?

    I just came back from holiday + scuba diving in Bali. The Hotel’s manager told me that the hotel that I stayed belongs to one of the Malaysian prominent politician. He further revealed that the hotel occupancy rate is averaging to 20%. This Dato is not interested so much about making profit … but this is the only way to smuggle & hide his wealth from public eyes.
