Speak out for Anwar Ibrahim's sake

Politically motivated charges impede his vision of a democratic Malaysia

Paul Martin

From Thursday's Globe and Mail

Anwar Ibrahim is a former deputy prime minister of Malaysia. After having differences of opinion with prime minister Mahathir Mohamad in 1998, he was removed from office, charged with sodomy and corruption – charges condemned worldwide as an attempt to remove him from politics – and imprisoned for six years. After his release in 2004, he became the leader of a coalition of opposition parties that is successfully challenging the ruling coalition's power. Mr. Anwar has now been charged again with sodomy, a charge that has again been condemned worldwide.

I have known Mr. Anwar well since the period when we each served as finance ministers for our respective countries. He is deeply committed to democracy, justice and the rule of law. And I have watched with horror how he has been treated in Malaysia because of that commitment. His initial imprisonment was seen worldwide as politically motivated. Amnesty International regarded him as a prisoner of conscience, jailed for the non-violent expression of his political opinion. After his release in 2004, he redoubled his campaign, attracting thousands to his public rallies, with the result that the historic 2008 election returned an unprecedented number of opposition candidates to Parliament. He now poses a threat to the government in the next national elections, expected in 2013 – the real reason for the latest charge.

His trial, which began Feb. 2, is widely seen as not meeting international standards for a fair trial. The former Anwar political aide who is making the sodomy accusation was reportedly seen with leading ruling coalition figures prior to the filing of the charge; Mr. Anwar's lawyers have been denied access to vital prosecution documents; and the trial has been transferred to a higher court whose judges are seen as linked to the ruling coalition's main party. It is small wonder that Michael Danby, chair of Australia's parliamentary subcommittee on foreign affairs, has charged that Malaysia's legal system is being manipulated to drive Mr. Anwar out of politics. Mr. Danby has said that Asian democrats were “flabbergasted” by the charges and that “everyone in Malaysia, and everyone in the international legal community, knows that Anwar is innocent of these charges.”

The presence of so many foreign embassies attending Mr. Anwar's show trial is a clear expression of international concern. This is an issue on which the world must speak out.

If his country is to take its place among the progressive nations of the world, it is crucial that the politically motivated charge against Mr. Anwar be dropped and that he be free to pursue his vision of a democratic Malaysia, properly respectful of human rights and international law.

Perception versus perception

Let me close by giving you a hint. The ‘secret weapon’ Umno is deploying is called JASA and is headed by Fuad Hassan, IGP Musa Hassan’s brother. Now, can the opposition please do some work for a change and look into this. Surely you do not expect Malaysia Today to do all your work for you?


Raja Petra Kamarudin

In case many of you do not quite understand what is presently going on in Malaysia, allow me to enlighten you. Malaysia is going through a civil war. Yes, a civil war. But while other countries fight their civil wars with guns, we fight ours in the sphere of perception. But it is still a civil war of sorts, only without blood spilled on the streets.

Say what you like but there is a revolution going on. And the populace are revolting against their government. But the populace have wisely chosen the ballot to the bullet. “Pilihan raya dan bukan pilihan jalan raya,” as Hishamuddin Rais would say -- meaning elections to the choice of the streets.

The British, in their wisdom, taught us how to fight this kind of war. Bullets will not defeat the Communists, said our British colonial master. We need to win against the Communists by winning the hearts and minds of the people. We have to make the people reject Communism. And the British succeeded. It was a brilliant strategy. Communism was defeated because the people rejected it, not because the British had more guns than the Communist Terrorists.

And this is the civil war currently being fought in Malaysia, just like the civil war during the Malayan Emergency.

By the way, it was called the Malayan Emergency and not the Malayan Civil War because if they had called it a war instead of an emergency then the insurance companies would not pay for the damages suffered by the British companies. The Communist Terrorists were bombing government installations and British properties. But if these were losses suffered in a war then the insurance would not cover these loses. So they called it an emergency instead.

So Malaysia is actually now on war footing. But there are no guns being fired or properties being bombed. It is a war of perception. It is perception versus perception. And it is a war being fought between the ruling coalition called Barisan Nasional and the opposition coalition called Pakatan Rakyat.

Wars comprise of many battles. It is not just one big battle. Even the invasion of Normandy was many battles being fought all over the place. You may win some battles and you may lose some. But, in the end, the accumulation of the many battles that you win decides on the victor.

In a war of perception you must trigger many issues at the same time. This is like engaging in many battles simultaneously. And you attack each target and continue to attack until your target falls.

Now, let us translate this to what is currently going on.

Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak is of course the first target (like Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Dr Mahathir Mohamad were before him). The perception about Najib is that he is linked to the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu, one way or another, directly or indirectly. And that has already been achieved. Very few Malaysians, even those in Umno, would say he is not somehow linked to Altantuya’s murder, or at least had some relationship with her.

Many believe he not only personally knew Altantuya but actually had a sexual relationship with her as well. They also believe that the photograph of Najib, Altantuya and Razak Baginda does exist and that the Honorary Mongolian Consul to Malaysia, Syed Abdul Rahman Alhabshi, gave the photograph to the police.

We must remember that in the early days of the incident Syed Rahman gave press conferences and whacked the police and accused them of not conducting a proper investigation. Syed Rahman told many people many things about the case, which he probably regrets doing now.

The fact that Syed Rahman has been given a RM500 million project just strengthens the belief that he has been bought off. That is the perception and this perception is not going to change whatever he might do or say.

Razak Baginda’s Statutory Declaration, that was accepted by the court, and which resulted in him being acquitted of murder, clearly says that he never knew Sirul or Azilah until Najib’s ADC, Musa Safri, arranged for them to meet. The court has accepted this statement. And that was why the court acquitted Razak of murder.

So Najib’s ADC, Musa Safri, set the whole thing up and that resulted in Altantuya being murdered.

Then we have Najib’s Special Officer, Nasir Safar, who was there when Sirul and Azilah picked up Altantuya in front of Razak’s house. Private investigator Bala has confirmed this and he told the police about it. But the police immediately brushed it aside and said it was just a resident from around there without further investigating the matter.

So Najib’s Special Officer, Nasir Safar, was also involved. And that makes two very close aides of Najib who are directly linked to the murder.

As far as perception goes, Najib’s has lost the war. Go and do an independent survey if you wish. Just poll Malaysians at random and the majority would tell you that they believe Najib either knew Altantuya, had sex with her, or is directly or indirectly involved in her murder.

In the perception war Najib has been defeated. And there is nothing he can do or say to restore his fallen image.

Okay, next target is Najib’s wife, Rosmah Mansor. In the sphere of perception, Rosmah is seen a bitch. However, ironically enough, this is her own doing rather than because the opposition attacked her.

There are so many stories floating around about her. One story concerns four retired generals going to her house to meet Najib. She came out and asked them whether they want to meet Najib about politics or business. They asked what difference would it make and she replied that if they want to meet Najib about politics then he will be out in a short while but if it is about business then they are to talk to her and not to Najib.

This story is well known amongst the military personnel.

The next story is about her shopping spree in Paris where she spent RM200,000 in just one day. Now, the icing on the cake is that Altantuya was with her that day and she was helping Rosmah carry all her things including her credit cards and whatnot.

Quite a number of Malaysian Embassy staff members were also there to help Rosmah carry her stuff (RM200,000 in shopping is a lot of stuff) so this story has spread amongst the diplomatic community.

In 2008 she was in Indonesia to attend to bank function. As she strutted to the main table like a queen, walking behind her was her lady-in-waiting holding a cushion. The lady-in-waiting then placed the cushion on the chair before Rosmah sat down. Even the Raja Permaisuri Agong does not get this kind of treatment.

Invariably, since it was a Malaysian bank function, the place was crowded with Malaysians and they all felt like throwing up. They not only felt so embarrassed but nauseous as well.

Then remember her trip to China, which she gave an interview about? In her interview she grumbled that Najib left her all alone in her room while he attended to matters of state. She got so pissed off that she told Najib to send her back to Malaysia. Since he is so busy and has no time for her then send her home.

This was what she admitted in her newspaper interview.

And recently she went to India with Najib. They had planned all sorts of programs for her in Chennai but she stayed in her room and refused to come out. Chennai is so filthy, she said, so she refuses to leave her room. “Why are Indians so dirty?” she exasperatingly told her aides.

This latest foot-in-the-mouth is currently being much talked about amongst diplomatic circles. So, as I said, most damage to Rosmah is being done by her herself. The opposition does not need to raise any issues. She volunteers all the ammunition needed to win the perception war.

As far as Najib and Rosmah are concerned, they have absolutely lost the perception war. Then we come to Umno and Barisan Nasional. The things that Umno and Barisan Nasional have done, and are continuing to do, are hurting them bad. The opposition does not need to be clever in defeating Umno and Barisan Nasional. All the opposition needs to do is to not make any mistakes. Umno and Barisan Nasional are on self-destruct mode and are shooting themselves in their own feet. They can never win the perception war.

What about the perception regarding Anwar Ibrahim and the opposition? Now that is a problem as well. The government is trying to give the perception that Anwar is guilty of sodomy. That has failed miserably. Very few believe Anwar is guilty. In fact, they believe that Anwar is a victim of a frame up. It does not matter what the court says. To most Malaysians Anwar is innocent.

Nevertheless, many believe that Anwar is not a good manager and they blame many of the problems in the opposition, in particular in PKR, on Anwar’s lack of action. They feel that had Anwar been firmer then many problems could have been nipped in the bud. So, in a way, Anwar is the cause of all these problems mainly because he did nothing to prevent them from happening.

As for the rest of the opposition they are divided about what the real problem is. Some accept the fact that the opposition never thought it would do that well on 8 March 2008. So the opposition did not choose its candidates carefully. And now these low quality candidates, in particular those ex-Umno people and candidates who put personal interests above the interests of the voters, have shown their true colours.

The voters understand that it was very difficult for the opposition to attract good candidates, especially when no one thought it would do that well in the elections. So the voters are prepared to give the opposition a second chance. In the next general election, if the opposition fields better candidates, the voters will again vote for the opposition. But this time they will vote against Barisan Nasional not because they hate the ruling party but because they have confidence that the opposition can do better.

This second chance is actually the last chance for the opposition. Either they make it this time around or they will never make it in this generation. If the opposition fails to win the hearts and minds of the people come the next election then it would be lost for good. There is no third chance. We would have to wait 30 years or so for the next generation of voters before the people would dare another experiment in changing the government.

As I said, Umno and Barisan Nasional are contributing to the opposition cause by making so many mistakes. And they are continuing to make these mistakes even as you read this. So the opposition need not try too hard. The opposition is already winning the perception war. All the opposition needs to do is to not also make so many mistakes.

What mistakes are the opposition making and what should they do about it? Well, I have already written about that at length so I do not wish to repeat myself. Anwar knows what they are. All the opposition leaders know what they are. You and I also know what they are. Just stop making these mistakes is all we ask of the opposition. And if you do that then we shall be marching into Putrajaya come the next general election.

Oh, and by the way, do not think that Umno is not doing anything about their defeat in the perception war. They are aware that they have lost the perception war and they are putting into place certain plans to regain lost territory. I know what they are but it is still too early for me to reveal all.

Let me close by giving you a hint. The ‘secret weapon’ Umno is deploying is called JASA and is headed by Fuad Hassan, IGP Musa Hassan’s brother. Now, can the opposition please do some work for a change and look into this. Surely you do not expect Malaysia Today to do all your work for you?

Till we talk again, let’s keep bashing until we see the destruction of Umno and Barisan Nasional.

Drop Anwar charges, Australian MPs tell Malaysia

Friday, 12 February 2010 Super Admin
E-mail Print PDF

(The Australian) - MORE than 50 Australian members of parliament, including frontbenchers from both sides of politics, have signed a letter demanding that the Malaysian judiciary drop charges of sodomy against former deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim.

Michael Danby, chairman of parliament's foreign affairs subcommittee, delivered the letter to the Malaysian high commissioner, Salman Bin Ahmad, yesterday.

The letter says: "It should be made known to the Malaysian government that in our opinion global esteem for Malaysia will be affected by these charges against Mr Anwar."

The letter further states: "Many friendly observers of Malaysia find it difficult to believe that a leading opposition voice could be charged with sodomy a second time, and so soon after his party made major gains in national elections."

Most of the 50 signatories are Labor members, including two frontbenchers, parliamentary secretaries Gary Gray and Laurie Ferguson. The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Anna Burke, also signed the letter.

On the Liberal side, environment spokesman Greg Hunt is the most senior signatory, along with former opposition leader Malcolm Turnbull.

Mr Anwar was first charged with sodomy in 1998. He was convicted, but in 2004 Malaysia's Federal Court overturned his conviction.

Mr Anwar was a former deputy prime minister and finance minister under Malaysia's long-serving former leader, Mahathir Mohammed. The two fell out bitterly in the wake of the 1998 Asian financial crisis. Since he was released from jail, Mr Anwar has become the leader of the Malaysian opposition, which made sweeping gains in Malaysia's last federal and state elections.

Such a strong pro-Anwar intervention by so many, and such senior, Australian politicians could well once more inflame the Australia-Malaysia relationship, which went through turbulent times when Dr Mahathir and Paul Keating were their countries' respective leaders. Since then Australia has trodden softly to ensure Malaysian co-operation on trade, military and intelligence, counter-terrorism and regional efforts to stop people-smuggling.

Zahid: Our submarine can’t dive

(AFP) - Malaysia’s first submarine, a European-made Scorpene delivered last September, has developed problems that make it unfit for diving, Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said today.

The KD Tunku Abdul Rahman sailed into a grand reception last year as the first of two commissioned from French contractor DCNS and Spain’s Navantia for a total of 3.4 billion ringgit.

Named after the country’s first prime minister, it was hailed as an important acquisition despite opposition allegations of corruption in the deal.

"The submarine can still dive but when we detected the defects, we were advised that it should not dive," Zahid told reporters.

"The (parts found with) defects are still under warranty so the supplier and contractor are repairing them," he added.

Navy chief Abdul Aziz Jaafar said a problem first emerged in the submarine’s cooling system last December. After being fixed, another defect was identified in a different system last month.

"We hope it can dive again after February 18, so we can carry out the tropical water trials," Abdul Aziz told reporters.

The navy chief said the second submarine, the KD Tun Razak which is named after the nation’s second premier, is expected to arrive from France on May 31. It was originally scheduled for delivery in late 2009.

The two submarines have attracted controversy since the deal was signed in 2002.

Malaysia’s opposition claims that a 540-million-ringgit commission was paid to a close associate of Prime Minister Najib Razak in brokering the contract.

Najib has denied there was any corruption in the deal, which was made when he was defence minister.

I plucked a spring flower from ClarityOfNight...

Friday, February 05, 2010

A Spring Haunting

there's always a sidewalk
with bricks
and maybe a hedge
and it's warm
the kind of warm
that only comes after
a long cold
the coming night is soft
and a couple hours away
and the yards are mostly deserted
and the streets
except for traffic
which doesn't matter
because traffic never matters
other than to remind me
that the world is still alive
beyond what I know how to touch
but maybe it's not really the light
or the warm
or time of day
that tells me
something changed
tells me something is present
that rarely is present
maybe it's the door
or the shadow of the trees
or the dark windows
or maybe it's the door and the shadows and the windows
because I am the shadow
and you are the window
on the other side of dark
and the door
between the two
is always


The door is half closed

I am here
Your are there
And there is a door between us
It's half closed

I feel comforable on this side of my world
A melodious singing voice beckons me over
You insist the skies are bluer there
And the sun shines forever bright

I have grown used to my darker world
With all its ups and downs
With all its hurts and frowns
So I'm reluctant to take a step
Beyond the half clsed door

"The door is still half open,
to welcome you," the beguiling voice again.
I pause and linger,
As the door closes slowly, slowly, surely.

I sometimes wonder about
The face behind the sweet, tempting voice
Behind the door.

Fuck 8 March 2008. Fuck the Federal Court. Fuck that one battle we just lost. Fuck the next few battles we are going to lose as well. Let’s go for the ‘Big One’. Let’s prepare for the next general election. And let’s prepare well, not shoddily like the last time.


Raja Petra Kamarudin

There was this little duck that enjoyed paddling in the small pond below the hill. In the middle of the pond was a tiny island. One day it rained and rained. It rained for days and the pond soon started filling up and the tiny island got smaller and smaller. But the duck did not mind the rain because it liked water.

As it swam near the island it heard a small voice. “Help me! I will drown if you do not help me!”

The duck became curious and swam closer to the island and saw that it was a scorpion. “Help me get off this island,” said the scorpion. “If you don’t help me I will drown.”

“How can I help you?” the duck asked.

“You can carry me on your back and take me across to the mainland,” said the scorpion.

“But if I do that you will sting me,” replied the duck.

“No, I will not. If you help me why would I sting you? If I sting you, you will die, and I will drown.”

So the duck allowed the scorpion to crawl onto its back and it paddled over to the mainland. But halfway across the pond the scorpion stung the duck at the back of its neck. As the duck was dying it asked the scorpion, “Why did you sting me? I am dying and now you will also die.”

“It is what I do,” replied the scorpion.

And they both died.

I remember a meeting I had with Umno Youth Leader Khairy Jamaluddin some time ago when I mentioned that I know he is a more modern and liberal Malay who had received his education overseas all his life. He is therefore not a ‘kampong’ Malay like most Umno Youth members. Why, therefore, does he scream about the New Economic Policy and Ketuanan Melayu and whatnot? He should be more global oriented. He is, after all, a man of the world.

“It is what I do,” replied Khairy with a chuckle. And I understood perfectly well what he meant although I felt he was sacrificing his principles in the interest of doing the ‘politically correct’ thing. Khairy has no choice but to play to the gallery. He says and does things expected of an Umno Youth Leader although that may not exactly be him. But it comes with the territory. An Umno Youth Leader has to act like an Umno Youth Leader is expected to act. And Malay rights and privileges is the name of the game in Umno.

Yes, Khairy, like most politicians, would do what the scorpion did. They would do what is within their nature rather than look at the bigger picture. A scorpion’s job is to sting. Umno’s job is to retain power by hook or by crook and at whatever cost to the nation, democracy, justice, fair play and whatnot. The ends justify the means. It is not how you play the game but winning that counts.

Today, the Federal Court made its decision 5-0 in favour of Umno and Barisan Nasional. So, it is now confirmed, Pakatan Rakyat has been ousted from Perak. And that was the court of last resort. That was the last card Pakatan Rakyat played and it lost the game.

So what now?

So now we move on. We lost and there is nothing more we can do about it. Most know how to manage victory. Very few know how to manage defeat. And we were defeated today in the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya. So let us just manage our defeat like gentlemen and move on.

What did we lose today? We just lost the battle. But we are yet to lose the war. And the war will come, one day. And it will not be long before it does. At most it will be another three years. It could even be only 12 months or so from now. So let’s gear up for the ‘Big One’.

What did we win on 8 March 2008? We won five states and 82 Parliament seats. We denied Barisan Nasional its two-thirds majority in Parliament. Then we lost back one state and the Federal Court today confirmed that loss. Soon we may lose another state and maybe ten or so Parliamentarians and Barisan Nasional will gain back its two-thirds majority in Parliament.

So that will be another one or two battles we are going to lose. But we are yet to lose the war. So what do we want to do? Do we want to just retain the territory we won on 8 March 2008 or do we want to win more territory when the ‘Big One’ comes?

Okay, if it makes us feel better, let’s blame the three Perak ‘frogs’ for our loss. Let’s blame the Sultan of Perak. Let’s also blame the corrupted and manipulated judicial system. Let’s blame all and sundry if that makes us feel better. But that is not going to help us win back anything. It is not even going to help us win the ‘Big One’ when it comes over the next year or two.

So they cheated. So what? It is what they do. It is in their nature to lie, cheat, manipulate, threaten, bribe and play unfairly. It is their job. The ends justify the means.

We knew that the playing field is not level. We knew they would move the goalposts halfway through the game. That is how they do things. So what’s the big deal? Why bitch, moan and grumble about it? Is it not in the nature of scorpions to sting those who are trying to help it? Why are we so unhappy about that?

Why were they able to screw us in our arse? Simple, because we took off our pants and bent down. It is in their nature to screw the opposition. Why did we make it easy for them? Why did we take off our pants and bend down?

8 March 2008 is history. There is no future in the past. The future is in the future. What is waiting for us in the future? Do we know? Have we prepared ourselves for it? Are we better equipped and well geared to take on the ‘Big One’ when it finally comes?

Pakatan Rakyat did not think it would do that well on 8 March 2008. When I went round the country giving ceramahs and when I said in my ceramahs that Pakatan Rakyat will win five states and more than 80 seats to deny Barisan Nasional its two-thirds majority in Parliament many laughed. They said I must be smoking something very strong.

You can see the videos of these ceramahs on Youtube where I said all this. But of course Pakatan Rakyat did not believe this. And they did not prepare themselves to win five states and more than 80 seats in Parliament. So they fielded half-baked candidates whom even I would not vote for.

I remember as we toured the country and my wife met the candidates who would be contesting and she exclaimed, “Heavens! Is this the best the opposition can do? Where the fuck did the party find these people. Aiyoh! Please lah! Can’t they find better people?”

That was my wife’s horror when she met the opposition candidates.

“Seriously,” she said. “If this is the quality of our candidates then better we don’t win the elections. I just can’t see the opposition being able to run this country with these types of people. Aiyoh! Better let Barisan Nasional win lah! I shudder to think what will happen to this country if the opposition wins.”

Anyway, we both voted in Subang USJ9 and we voted for the opposition candidates. But we were actually quite relieved when Barisan Nasional won instead of Pakatan Rakyat.

Now, imagine my wife and me who are fully committed to the opposition cause and yet we were glad that Pakatan Rakyat did not get to form the new federal government. What is wrong here?

So can we forget about Perak? It’s gone. Nasi sudah jadi bubur (the rice has turned to porridge). We can’t undo that now. We need to look to the future. We need to prepare ourselves for the ‘Big One’. We need to ensure that while we have lost this battle, and maybe another one or two as we go along, we shall not lose the war.

Let them win these few battles. Never mind they won by foul means rather than fair. We need to focus on winning the great battle ahead of us, the ‘Big One’.

Hey, they may have won this round, even though unfairly. But did we not also help them win? They could not have won without our help. We chose unstable and unsavoury characters as candidates in the 8 March 2008 general election. And, against all odds, they won, much to everyone’s surprise.

I can almost imagine the top leadership of the opposition falling into their chairs in utter shock when the results came in. “Oh shit! Oh no! Fuck! They won! Hell, what we gona do now? Alamak, we have jokers in our government.”

Remember they could not even find a suitable candidate to become the Menteri Besar of Perak? Finally they had to select Nizar from PAS although his party won the least number of seats in the Perak State Assembly.

Yes, that was our problem. We selected court jesters and found that we had to place these court jesters onto the throne. And that scared the shit out of all of us. That was our problem. And these court jesters proved that they are nothing short of court jesters. And now the opposition is beginning to look like a joke.

Well, what do you expect? It is what court jesters do. They are jokers. So they make the opposition look like a joke.

Fuck 8 March 2008. Fuck the Federal Court. Fuck that one battle we just lost. Fuck the next few battles we are going to lose as well. Let’s go for the ‘Big One’. Let’s prepare for the next general election. And let’s prepare well, not shoddily like the last time.

And then let’s fuck Umno and Barisan Nasional good and proper!
