Two NST reports caught my eyes -- MACC is super-efficeint in some ways...

YES, at "selective" pursuit of corrupt prctitioners. If the alleged corruptors hail from the alMIGHTY UMNO--oh-no! YOUR ARE SUPREMELY PROTECTED FROM PROSECUTION! Contrast Case 1 and Case 2 -- Yes, Case 1 one current investigation into an UMNO bigwig's family project costing the Rakyat RM250million is quickly closed -- NFA, hat is translated as NO FURTHER ACTION!

Caee 2 also involved a former UMNO rising star's protege -- the trouble is, the Star no less than Deputy PM and his subordinate a Political Secretary, also were given an NFA rating. NO FURTHER ACTION, except more than a decade later. ALL BECAUSE THE PLAYERS HAD DESERRTED the party and set up or joined a brand new one that threatens the death of UMNO--oh-no! Yes, because now Anwar Ibrahim, de facto head of Parti Keadiolan Rakyat, and his deputy Azmin Ali -- an MP and Selangor ADUN -- are no more with the corrupt UMNO, their faile is being RE-OPENED, how many years later? From 1995-97, se Case 2 later, as HIGHLIGHTED THUS and marked **** by Deis!:( ! And the MACC is sitting tight on so many corruption complaints filed against BN Menteri Besar and cheap ministers -- NFA, Mr MACC thief? Wait another 15-17 years?

How about the runaway blogger RPK hydeing out in London, is he IMMUNE FROM PROSECUTION FOR PUBLISHING OSA-documents, just because it's now CONVENIENT FOR UMNO's struggle and survival? AGAIN and again, and it won't stop now, it's a demonstration of the BN Government's DOUBLE STANDARDS IN APPLYING THE LAW! You as a Voter can help stop this evil regime that is BN-UMNO -- VOTE4CHANGE, VOTE FOR PR cometh GE-13! -- YL, Desi, more-angry-thanKNOTTYASsUSUAL!

PS: I later found that Haris Ibrahim, RPK's liutenant, continued to play the role of demigod -- taking on suporanormal duty to ask PKR leaders to answer to him, as part of Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement's unquestionable right! -- wrote:  


" .... I sent the following sms to Anwar Ibrahim and Azmin Ali.
“Pls see RPK’s latest post. U must respond. silence is not an option”.
You must know which post of RPK’s I was referring to. For the avoidance of doubt, it was his“MACC deepthroat out of the closet” post.
No, I was not expecting a return sms from either Anwar or Azmin and I can confirm now that I did not  receive any. (ends of extract fro the self-appointed head of People's Parliament's blog...)

To this wolf-in-sheep'sclothing Haris, I again ask: " RPK and Haris, who art thou in Malaysian politics?", which is the title of a previous post that got RPK all riled up... -- that the PKR chief and his deputy must answer each and every query you and RPK lashed out at them clearly to earn thyself brownie points with the UMNO goons, Yes?!  ~~ YL, Desi

MACC panel clears Shahrizat

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Operations Review Panel (PPO) yesterday cleared Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil of any wrongdoing over the National Feedlot Corporation (NFCorp) issue.

Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil quit as women, family and community development minister on April 8
PPO chairman Tan Sri Dr Hadenan Abdul Jalil said the investigations had approached the case on two aspects; on whether Shahrizat was involved in the process of getting the RM250 million soft loan and whether she was also involved in the awarding of the contract for the National Feedlot Centre.
"After further investigations, we found that Shahrizat had nothing to do with the awarding of the RM250 million loan," he said.
The national feedlot scandal first came to light in the 2010 Auditor-General's Report, which indicated that there were weaknesses in the corporation in achieving its objectives. In 2007, the government approved a RM250 million soft loan to the corporation at two per cent annual interest to enable the corporation to start a national feedlot centre to reduce beef imports but NFC's assets had been frozen since.
Shahrizat's husband, Datuk Seri Dr Mohamed Salleh Ismail, is the chairman of NFCorp.
On March 12, Salleh was charged in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court with two counts of committing criminal breach of trust involving a total of RM49.7 million and two counts of violating the Companies Act. Salleh had pleaded not guilty to all four counts.
He was also accused of banking in RM40 million into his company National Meat and Livestock Corporation Sdn Bhd's (NMLC) account and purchasing two condominium units in Bangsar for RM9,758,140 in 2009.
Shahrizat resigned as women, family and community development minister on April 8 but she remained Wanita Barisan Nasional and Wanita Umno chief.

Case 2:

Azmin graft probe reopens

NEW INFORMATION: MACC advised to pursue case under 2009 probe papers

KUALA LUMPUR: THE Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's (MACC) Operations Evaluations Panel yesterday said it has instructed the commission to reopen the corruption probe into Azmin Ali.
Panel chairman Tan Sri Dr Hadenan Abdul Jalil said, after chairing a meeting at the MACC Academy here in Jalan Duta, that MACC was advised to pursue the case under the 2009 investigation papers as the information they had was incomplete.
MACC had revived the case in 2009 when Anuar Shaari, who was Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's private secretary, came forward with new information eerily similar to the contents of the missing file concerning Azmin's case.
"The case happened a long time ago and in the view of the panel, this happened at a time when the old act was still enforced.
"However, the case was reopened in 2009 when new information was given to the MACC.
"The most tedious part is that because this is an old case, we found that the information was incomplete and needs to be added on.
"Getting evidence will be a challenge, but the MACC will make all the efforts to ensure that the case is solved as soon as possible."
MACC investigations head Datuk Mustafar Ali explained that the initial investigations in 1995 had found that Azmin and his wife had amassed expensive property without any explainable reason.
However, the Anti-Corruption Agency, as the commission was known then, was unable to act against him as there was no such provision in the Prevention of Corruption Act 1961 to prosecute public servants who were living beyond their means.
The provision only came into existence in 1997 with the Anti-Corruption Act and later, with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009.
Mustafar said there was no issue on pursuing a case despite it being first investigated 17 years ago as there was no time limit constraints.
Hadenan also said that no action was taken as there was no issue of corruption according to the laws available then.
"There are legal issues which need be settled by the MACC."
Mustafar added the MACC would have to re-look at the totality of the information it has on the case as Azmin had acquired his wealth before the new act was in place.
Hadenan also didn't discount the possibility when asked whether the MACC would contact the former director-general of the ACA and other officers involved in the investigation, adding that this would prove to be a challenge as well as some of them may have moved away or have died since then.
Mustafar said there had been occasions where the commission pursued cases involving public servants living beyond their means.
He cited a case in 2007, where the individual was prosecuted under the Anti-Corruption Act 1997 and another in 2011 under the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009.
In an exclusive report by the New Straits Times yesterday, former ACA director-general Datuk Shafee Yahaya said he had recommended to Anwar, who was then deputy prime minister and finance minister, ****that disciplinary action be taken against Azmin following a 1995-97 probe into alleged corruption.
He had said the probe revealed that Azmin was deep in debt.
Highly placed sources told the NST that Azmin had been investigated for, among others, assets allegedly amassed with his wife, Shamsidar Taharin, including houses and cars totaling almost RM1.5 million, shares valued at hundreds of thousands of ringgit, and almost RM10 million in cash and cheques that went in and out of both their accounts that had been certified by the banks concerned.
The assets were allegedly acquired when Azmin served as Anwar's private secretary. His pay then was RM2,442 a month.
Parti Keadilan Rakyat came to Azmin's defence when strategic director Mohd Rafizi Ramli and Keadilan Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin issued a joint statement yesterday which outlined several "facts" of the case based on Shafee's book The Shafee Yahaya Story.
They said Shafee had stated in his book on pages 306, 326 and 256 that there were no elements of corruption found in the investigation that warranted the allegations against him in 1995.
"He (Shafee) also stated the ACA had recommended that disciplinary action be taken against Azmin in line with government regulations."
On a separate note, Hadenan told reporters the investigation into allegations of illegal sand mining in Selangor involving PKR assemblymen Mat Suhaimi Shafiei (Sri Muda) and Amirudin Shari (Batu Caves) was officially closed.
The panel had in February, instructed the MACC to re-visit the case.
Present were panel members Datin Aminah Pit Abd Raman, Prof Dr Syed Noh Syed Ahmad and Walter Sandosam.

My comment on The People's Parliament posting "I'll shut up if they speak up"

You can read The People's Parliament posting "I'll shut up if they speak up" here.

Bro Haris,

There are many ways to skin a cat.

Whether this episode is true or not I am very sure MACC, PDRM, Judiciary and umno will be combing for every minute details to hang them before GE13. You and I know why this is dug up again or you are too truthful that you do not know.

No one single human being is clean, believe it or not and if you really want to dig out a person's wrong doing you can always found some.

A person can change, from good to bad and so is from bad to good.

They are ex-umno politicians and we expect their cupboards full of skeletons just that they are not discovered nor charged for any of it. I am not condoning corruptions nor abuse of power but it happen and will happen who ever is in power, even if you screen each and every candidates and announced them to be 100% clean.

"You received a call from the hospital that someone dear to you is admitted into ICU and you just finished a very important meeting for the past two days in your house and its in a mess, plates not washed with left over foods and not taken bath, what will you do? Rushed to the hospital or clean everything up before you leave?"

Trying to be an angel in the present political scenario will see to it that umno will remain in power for the next century.

No one is claiming that PR is 100% perfect or clean and my worry is that when voters become over or too smart, it will allow umno to retain power. I am saying this is because, many NGOs, third force and individual like RPK and you, are promoting and calling for a 100% clean and perfect new government or else lets go for the evil corrupt racist regime umno!

Leave the past for the time being and concentrate on our main objective to rid of the evil corrupt regime that are at least 80% infested with corruptions and racist and go for a 80% more reliable new government.

Dont follow the footstep of RPK, he no longer wants umno to fall and you cant preach ABU while on the other hand wanting a 100% perfect and a clean new government.

Just face the real world and do the one right thing that this country needs CHANGE no matter what!

Thank you

Richard Loh
