"Keeping the Rage" on DS ANWAR IBRAHIM

NOW unjustly Incarcerated again at Sungai Buluh Prison, because he dared to stand up to the oppressive UMNO eveil regime, especially the past s'x years under the CluelessWan.

From Today for the near future, I will re-visit the fate of the ONE I have termed as Malaysia's NELSON MANDELA -- he is the much feared by UMNO DS Anwar Ibrahim (DSAI). Najib Razak usurped the Prime Minister's post from DSAI by using all the dirty tricks contained in the most corrupt regime the world has ever known, in Negara Ku which I have renamed as MalSia and its CEO I refer to as the CluelessWan, and I guess the US Justice Department dared not mention by name, just as that "Malaysian Official1".

To lead off an important series, let me reprise part of Yesterday's post which is PART 15 of the earlier essay series of equal importance, and closely tied up with this current series:--

Too many followers - Najib lied about his role in Anwar's conviction
Too many followers – Najib lied about his role in Anwar’s conviction


But, there is another more current and pressing scandal that Malaysians should no longer continue to tolerate now their Prime Minister has been demonstrated so comprehensively to be a major thief and liar.  That, of course, is the continued incarceration of Malaysia’s opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, in a case that was cooked up by Najib from beginning to end.
The evidence is overwhelming that Malaysia’s present Prime Minister was up to his neck in the conspiracy to accuse the man who most threatened him politically of a crime designed to lose him the greatest possible political support.
And Najib has been caught out lying over and again over this involvement.
For this reason alone the plainly politically motivated prosecution ought to have been thrown out of court…. and indeed so it was. After a vicious and protracted trial Anwar was resoundingly acquitted in the High Court.
However, Najib was not prepared to accept an acquittal of his political enemy, particularly since Anwar had just won the majority of votes at the General Election.  Najib ordered an Appeal against that acquittal and then he ordered a conviction – the hand-picked judiciary at the top of Malaysia’s eroded judicial system complied with this irregular request, a sad indicator of the country’s institutional decline.

Najib changed his story, not once but twice

Consider how disgraceful the main facts of this case are, from the evidence in court.
Months and years of dragged out legal wrangling have conveniently blurred memories and confused foreign observers of the case, for Najib. However, it has been firmly established that Najib himself met the ‘victim’ at his house shortly before the complaint of sodomy was filed in June 2008, just after Anwar had caused shock waves with a landslide towards the opposition in the March election.
At first the Prime Minister lied and said he had not ever met the young worker from Anwar’s office.  But, when a photograph appeared showing the man inside Najib’s home he changed his story and explained that Mohd Saiful had pitched up three months earlier to talk about student grants (as one does with the then deputy Prime Minister).
In fact Saiful was already a student drop-out, although he had been active in BN while at college before applying to join Anwar’s team just before the March election.
It was only after Saiful admitted under court questioning that he had discussed the issue of   alleged sodomy with Najib in his house in June, just a two days before the alleged incident, that the DPM changed his story for a third time and admitted that he had indeed discussed the matter with Saiful and that yes, the lawyer and later prosecutor on the case Shafee Abdullah was also in the house at the time.
Najib acknowledged in this third version of events that he had advised Saiful to go and lodge a police report.
Saiful also admitted under further questioning that the day before the alleged incident he had also held a secret meeting with a police chief in the Concord Hotel in KL. Assistant Commissioner Rodwan Mohd Yusof had a long grudge against Anwar, who accused him of framing him during his previous arrest and imprisonment.  Again the case was not thrown out.
Even so, it was two days after his visit to Anwar’s house and the alleged incident took place that Saiful took himself first to a private clinic to complain of sodomy.  The doctor could find no evidence of interference, but when Saiful complained there had been crime involved the doctor sent him for full examination at a public hospital.
The doctors at the public hospital could find no evidence of any interference either, as would have been expected, but since Saiful claimed he had not washed or defecated in the two days since the alleged incident they took sample to check for DNA.
There was great mystery and confusion over what happened next as delay in the arrival and analysis of these samples appears to have occurred, according to Australian barrister Mark Trowell who has written about what he describes as a travesty of a legal case.  The prosecution refused to provide details about how they acquired and processed their ‘evidence’.
The entire case was conducted against a backdrop of politicking and further accusations of a sexual nature against Anwar by BN, this time allegedly involving a female prostitute and a video without a properly identifiable face.
Unsurprisingly, after months of this nonsense the High Court Judge through out the prosecution and acquitted Anwar.  In any normal country that would have been the end of the matter, as the process of appeal is reserved for the defendant and not the prosecutor, who has failed to prove his case to the judge and jury (sadly the latter institution was abolished in Malaysia).
But, in Malaysia no. Najib was by this time Prime Minister and he drove through an appeal by the prosecution to the higher courts, where BN have control over top appointments. Over the next two years and in the aftermath of a triumphant 2013 election result by Anwar Najib got the judges of the Federal Court to present the judgement he was after – a guilty verdict that would force his foe from politics.
That night a sick and sickened pilot drove his plane out over the Indian Ocean and ditched it in – Najib should take his share of the blame for that as well.
Are Malaysians to sit an tolerate a situation where a disgraced thief and liar has succeeded in driving the opposition leader into jail in a case he masterminded himself from start to finish?  To be even more sure of controlling the case, the self-same Shafee Abdullah, Najib’s close legal associate, who attended that first meeting with the ‘victim to be’ in Najib’s house, unaccountably replaced the normal prosecution barristers on the case as a private prosecutor hired by the government during the final appeal hearings.
Najib has worked to exploit the leaderless situation confronting the opposition ever since and BN/UMNO smugly talk of divisions faced by the party they deliberately decapitated. He has gone on to “woo” the PAS Islamic party away from the opposition coalition in the normal way he woos – RM90 million is widely reckoned to have flowed into the top echelons of PAS in recent months (BN veterans would tell them they came cheap).
To sugar matters further for PAS, Najib has gone on a crusade to show himself ‘more holy than thou’ on every PAS religious agenda, stirring up extremism in Malaysia and undermining civil law and institutions, without turning a single hair over the destabilising, divisive and dangerous consequences to his country and his own party.
He thinks it’s clever. If a man has no charisma to attract his followers he buys them, whatever it takes.
Najib’s next target it the other powerful centre of political opposition, which is the well-run DAP party, which enjoys a strong support for its reputation for integrity.  The Prime Minister has adopted his preferred technique of legal persecution, abusing all his powers to accuse DAP’s leader of the crime with which he himself is most associated, corruption.
Malaysia now faces the spectacle of their own most corrupted world leader, caught out stealing billions, going after a state leader over paltry and flimsy accusations of an alleged cheap deal to buy his modest house.
With Guan Eng in jail alongside Anwar, PAS on the pay-roll, all his critics sacked and his emergency powers in place, Najib plainly reckons he can pull off another “election win”.
Can Malaysians tolerate more of this and more graft and squander by his pumped up, hormone abusing wife?
No wonder Najib’s own family, his former patron Dr Mahathir and so many others from his own BN party (none saints themselves) have fallen away in shock and disgust from this man supposedly ‘born to lead’. They know him best.
Malaysians should team up to reject Najib.  Next they can fight for reform

Just to close off the first of this NEW series of reminding fellow Malaysians to KEEP THE RAGE of two issues whose outcomes will primarily determine your future, my future too, and that of our next generation.

Cakap cakap....Lim Guan Eng.

Let us not dwell too long on the right and wrong of yesterday's arrest of Lim Guan Eng for corruption. 
Let us not parade the litany of intimidation, harassment and persecution of many others by this Umno led BN government of those who have rightfully questioned the odious use of political power for personal financial gains. 
Do not waste anytime trumpeting the erosion of our civil rights and the abuse of democratic process and institution within our nation by a BN government hell bent on imposing its draconian rule upon us all. 
Let us instead understand that this Umno led BN government arrested Lim Guan Eng because they can do so with impunity.  
And having done so they will now proceed to do what they want with him  - detain, harass, intimidate, and put him to trial knowing full well that the judiciary will do their bidding.
We know this is the way of this Najib led BN government. 
They have effectively taken a willing PAS under their wings. Anwar Ibrahim is incarcerated in Sungai Buloh and is effectively neutralized, isolated, silenced and unable to do his duties as leader of the opposition. So far they have nothing on Lim Kit Siang. And for reasons best known to Najib and his cohorts, they have decided to take Lim Guan Eng out. Out of DAP, out of Penang and out of the opposition and do to Lim Guan Eng what they have done to Anwar Ibrahim....and, if the past is any indication of the future, they will be able to do just that di dalam masa terdekat. 
Ask yourself why, if the opposition did win the popular mandate at the last election...why has it come to this? 
Why is the leader of that opposition that won the popular mandate to govern Malaysia  now in Sungai Buloh? 
Why has so many of those opposition leaders who were given the popular mandate to govern by the electorate in the last election been punitively pursued by this Umno led BN government and have been persecuted and prosecuted in a manner that has not been seen since the time of Mahathir?
Why has it been possible for this rampaging Umno led BN government to do it's worst upon our people, our leaders and anyone else that stands in their way to another term of plundering and pillaging of our nation coffers for their personal gain?
The simple answer to that question is..... "because we let them!" 
What has this Umno led BN government not done in this past decade? 
Corruption and arrogance pales in the face of what has since happened with 1MDB and that RM2.6 billion donation. 
Who would even have thought that our leaders would have the audacity to think that our national resources, our nations coffers and all that our nation have put at their disposal to use as they think fit in their duties as our representatives.......who would have thought that our leaders would abuse these "opportunities and privileges" for their own advantage not ours?
And after the farce of that Altantuya murder trial we have seen a growing number of more murders done for political and criminal gains that can be linked directly to the leaders who now govern our nation.      
And still we are quiet? 

And now you wonder how is it that this Najib led government dares to even think that they can get away with arresting arguably one of the most important leader within the opposition, on a charge of corruption...... when Najib himself is unable to explain the hundreds of millions of Ringgits in his own personal bank account?
And so I again repeat what I say before....the simple answer to that question is..... "because we let them!" 
I wish...I hope against hope...that the arrest of Lim Guan Eng would galvanize the opposition and millions of Malaysian to unite themselves and stand as one against this corrupt regime of Najib Razak....but I know it is wishful thinking. 
You and I know that the opposition is now in disarray. Unity among the coalition that once was the all conquering Pakatan Rakyat is in tatters. Any hope for the opposition to stand united in facing yet another obvious attempt by BN to neutralize another opposition leader can be thrown to the wind. 
Najib and his cohorts are systematically and effectively taking the opposition apart and breaking down each political entity within the opposition in the best way they know how....taking out it's leaders and silencing others who dare to stand up and voice their opposition to BN. 
And this, they will continue to do, until the next election is upon us
By then, if we allow them, there will be no Opposition Front to speak of and Umno will win another five years to pillage and plunder our nation.
I and many others can write about this everyday....but for what purpose?
Many thousands of you can turn up for demonstrations and protest to their hearts content against this abusive and vengeanful BN government...but again for what purpose?
Anwar has been arrested and incarcerated. So have many others...and now Lim Guan Eng. ...and all this again, for what purpose?
What else has to happen before those in opposition to this Umno led BN government understands that united we stand...divided we fall?
I am not fed up of how this BN government behaves
I am not even angry anymore that there is so much corruption and abuse of political power for political and personal gain. 
I am past being amazed at how blatant this Najib led BN government is in advancing their own political interest at the expense of any sense of justice or fairness to any one else. 
And I know that they do all this with impunity and arrogance because they can get away with anything they want to do
All this I have seen being done over these last two to three decades.....and yesterday....that arrest of Lim Guan Eng is but just another line that this BN government dare cross to again test our resolve...the people's grin and bear it.....or .....will the people say "ENOUGH!".
Ask yourself what you will do now? Have you reach your tipping point? Have you had enough of the abuse heaped upon us all by this Umno led BN government? 
And more critical to us all...will all those leaders in different political entities standing in opposition to this corrupt Umno led BN government come together and stand united with all of us and start the process of being one again to face BN at the next general election? 
And before any of those leaders within PKR, PAS and DAP answers these doubts that we have of their ability to stand together among themselves and join us in our struggles against BN, let us once and for all put to rest what race and religion has to do with all this.
Many of us do not really care who leads the opposition. Race, religion, gender and age is of no concern to most of us. We are driven by one thought and one thought only....we want a responsible government and all that comes with it. 
But even as we want that responsible government to the exclusion of almost anything else, we will still not accept any individual that seeks to use that want of ours for their own political or personal  advantage at the expense of ours. So be true to what we ask of you and do not ever abuse any trust we may place in you, for personal gain - political or financial.
For now there is nothing within the opposition horizon that speaks of hope and possibilities of change. None whatsoever. Zero. Naught. Kosong.What else need to happen before this change? Your thoughts on this is as good as mine......
