Where was I?

May 20, 2008

It has been some while since I came here.

The demand of some tasks has made my schedule concentrated elsewhere.

The latest turning event in politics has left many gaping for what will be the future of Malaysian politics. The maneuverings, not known to many have been quiet and effective. One feels that all are in order for the change toward new politics to take place in a more conducive environment ruled by those collectively agreeable in the freedom of expression, information and assembly.

Such conducive environment must be responsibly utilised by the people in the name of justice and in upholding truth in its entirety.

I’ll try to come back later…


I am the one in the sex DVD, says Chua

I am the one in the sex DVD, says Chua (updated)

LABIS: Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek admitted he is the politician in the sex DVDs circulating in Johor.

In a press conference here Tuesday, Dr Chua said the girl is his “personal friend”.

He apologised to the Malaysian public, his supporters and colleagues.

He said he did not make the tape himself.

Dr Chua said he will not resign over the sex DVDs. He will leave that up to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to decide.

“I have seen the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting and I have personally apologised to them,” he said while reading from a one-page statement during a press conference here Tuesday.

Dr Chua, who was clad in a yellow batik shirt, added that he had met up with Abdullah on Monday.

Asked about the reactions from Abdullah, Najib and Ong, he said that it was better to get a reaction from them as he cannot comment on their behalf.

Dr Chua vowed to continue carrying out his duties as a minister, MP and party leader.

Asked about his political future, Dr Chua said: “I leave it to my party members, leaders and the Malaysian public to be the judges. It’s not for me to speculate.”

The sex DVDs, on two discs, show Dr Chua and a woman engaging in various sexual antics. The two DVDs had been circulating in Muar, Tangkak and Batu Pahat over the past few days.

The existence of the DVDs was first reported in the Chinese dailies on Sunday while a Bahasa Malaysia daily reported about it Monday.

Laporan Polis Cucumatkilau di Balai Polis Kuantan

December 27, 2007

Dalam sekitar jam 9.00 pagi, ketika saya sedang tidur di bilik tingkat atas rumah saya. Tiba-tiba saya terdengar orang menjerit-jerit sambil memberi salam dan menyuruh saya membuka pintu rumah. Saya keletihan kerana baru balik dari Trengganu. Saya sampai sekitar dalam pukul 4.00 pagi. Belum sempat saya berlari untuk membuka pintu rumah, saya terdengar mereka menendang dan meneranjang pintu rumah saya sehingga pecah. Ketika hendak turun tangga, 2 orang lelaki terus menerpa saya dan menggari tangan saya serta mengarahkan saya masuk semula ke dalam bilik dan mendiamkan diri. Saya terkejut dan panik dengan apa yang berlaku. Mereka menuduh saya menjadi pengedar dadah jenis Ectasy dan sebagainya. Saya tidak sempat memakai seluar dan baju kerana terkejut dari bangun tidur. Mereka memeriksa tubuh badan saya termasuk juga alat sulit saya. Kemudian mereka menggeladah di setiap sudut bilik rumah saya. Ini menyebabkan saya merasa amat terperanjat dan takut. Mereka menuduh saya menghidap ”Ice” dan menjadi pengedar. Saya berkali-kali menyatakan saya tidak terlibat dengan jenayah terbabit. Bilik saya terus digeladah, 3 telefon bimbit saya dirampas termasuk wallet (beg duit) saya. Saya dibawa turun sambil bergari. Diarahkan memakai seluar jean tetapi tidak berbaju. Kemudian mereka terus menggeladah rumah saya dan memaksa saya mengaku menjadi pengedar barang terbabit. Di bawah terdapat 6 orang lagi sedang menunggu dan menggeladah rumah saya. Seorang daripadanya adalah wanita. Saya kemudian telah dibawa keluar rumah dan menaiki sebuah van yang menunggu kira-kira 100 meter dari rumah saya. Ketka itu, kereta saya pula telah digeladah dengan rakusnya. Saya dibawa ke Ibu Pejabat Polis Kuantan sekitar jam 11 pagi. Kemudian saya terus disoal lagi di dalam van. Mereka mahu saya mengaku mengedar dadah terbabit dan menyenaraikan lagi rakan-rakan saya yang terlibat. Dalam ketakutan saya membawa mereka ke sebuah rumah di Taman Impianku, Jalan Gambang. Dulu, rumah itu didiami oleh rakan saya yang saya fikir terlibat dengan gejala tersebut. Malangnya rakan saya sudah berpindah. Salah seorang daripada mereka memarahi saya kerana itu. Ketika menjawab soalan, salah seorang daripada mereka yang saya kenali sebagai Azemi (112875) telah menampar muka saya dan menyuruh saya diam. Walhal dia yang meminta saya menjawab soalan. Akhirnya saya mendiamkan diri. Air kencing saya diambil untuk siasatan. Saya hanya menunggu dalam ketakutan. Sekitar jam 12.00 tengahari, saya diarahkan masuk ke sebuah bilik dan diarahkan duduk seperti penjenayah. Kemudian seorang lelaki berkemeja kuning telah menyatakan saya tidak bersalah dan akan dibebaskan. Selepas itu, seorang lagi lelaki berbaju merah menyatakan saya tidak bersalah dan mereka akan membebaskan saya. Gari saya dibuka, beg duit dan semua telefon bimbit serta kad pengenalan saya dipulangkan. Saya dibenarkan pulang selepas itu. Dengan ini saya amat kecewa atas beberapa perkara yang tidak sepatutnya berlaku iaitu:-

1. Mereka dipercayai memanjat pagar rumah saya.

2. Mereka menendang pintu rumah saya sehingga pecah.

3. Mereka menyerbu saya dan terus menggari saya.

4. Mereka menggeladah rumah saya tanpa menunjukkan waran

5. Mereka memeriksa alat sulit saya.

6. Mereka menampar saya ketika dalam perjalanan.

7. Mereka merampas telefon bimbit, wallet dan kad pengenalan saya.

8. Mereka telah menggeladah dan merosakkan dashboard kereta saya.

Tujuan saya buat repot untuk melindungi diri saya sekiranya berlaku sebarang kejadian yang tidak diingini bagi melibatkan saya dengan jenayah tersebut. Juga bagi menembalikan maruah dan imej saya yang tercelar. Sekian pengaduan saya.


Woe of a taxi driver

December 6, 2007

probably the woe of thousands of taxi drivers…!

I hailed a cab to take me to my parents’ home in KL.   I was tired.   My youngest daughter was with me, too.   Another hour it would be a new day.   When we were seated in the cab, I didn’t think that the driver was up to any conversation – let alone speaking on topics of justice and fairness…alas, that was what he dived into almost immediately…he was lamenting on the state of corruption within taxi driver organisations and its linked to VIPs in the government.   The fact that drivers like him had to slog day and night to earn a living, with these bigwigs making easy money was a clear burning issue…it seemed for so, so long… Most of us could buy a proton saga for about RM600 per month.   But taxi drivers had to cough up RM1200 a month to own the same taxi car.   Some pay the taxi tycoon who owned the taxi company, with license to own thousands of cabs.   Guess who had the license to own taxi companies?

Limited license to few big taxi companies might also create monopoly of a kind.   Individual taxi drivers were blocked from picking up passengers at points monopolised by big taxi companies.   Such setup also create an obvious disadvantage to passengers.   I remember just some time ago the fare from KLIA to my parents’s home was aout RM45.  Now its RM90 or more.

It is so common in Malaysia that businesses are setup to benefit the elite of the nation.

The people, like the taxi drivers should rise up to ensure justice and fairness  prevail where they are.   They need a leader to lead a protest against the corrupt and unjust system, for a better and more decent life.

100000…and I was one of them…

That is I, on regaining my vision after the effects of the blasts from the water canons and smoke that dysfunctionalises one’s ability to breathe and see, thus forcing to a stop all normal bodily/physical capabilities… at the Nov 10 BERSIH rally.

 

I confirm the despicable acts of the Polis Di Raja Malaysia whose orders were from the Minister of Home Affairs who was also the PM of Malaysia,who had put all obstacles for the people to meet the King in the mission to convey the people’s indignation regarding the sorry state of affairs of the SPR and the election system – which were totally out in terms of being clean, fair and just to all contestants and contesting parties in general elections and other elections.

 

I confirm that the papers today speak tons of lies about the event.

 

And to read the statement of Zainuddin Maidin, the Information Minister, that the renowned Al-Jazeera (made up stories) about the event is simply outrageously outlandish! The pure stupidity of it all!

It exposes the wholesome idiocy of the Minister as a choice of the PM, with all his men not uttering a word of contradiction – which signifies a support to the idiocy. What does that equal to?

Malaysians, show our support for a Really Clean Election!

October 24, 2007

BERSIH MASS RALLY NOVEMBER 10

Sekretariat Gabungan Pilihanraya Bersih dan Adil (BERSIH)

4A Jalan Sepadu, Taman United, 58200 Kuala Lumpur
Tel: (03) 7980 6571, Fax: (03) 7980 2697, URL: www.bersih.org

The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (BERSIH) will hold a mass rally on 10 November (Saturday), starting from 3 pm, at Dataran Merdeka to press for electoral reform. A memorandum will be subsequently submitted to the Yang Dipertuan Agong.

This latest citizen action organized by BERSIH will demonstrate the growing public demand for the four immediate actions necessary to reform the flawed electoral process: (a) a thorough clean-up of electoral rolls; (b) the user of indelible inks to prevent multiple voting; (c) the abolition of postal voting for military and police personnel; (d) fair access to mass media for all parties and candidates.

The memorandum to be submitted to the Yang DiPertuan Agong will outline both immediate and long-term reforms needed in the Malaysian election process including the adherence of “one-person one-vote” principle.

BERSIH has chosen yellow, the colour for citizen actions worldwide and the colour for press freedom movement (yellow ribbon) in Malaysia, as the colour for this rally. Citizens may indicate their support with the rally’s t-shirts, posters, yellow armbands, yellow ribbons or any creative expression.

Free and fair conduct of elections is fundamental to democracy. Flawed elections frustrate the functioning of democracy, resulting in corruptions and incompetence of the government. The losers are none other than the people.

To date, the Government and Elections Commission however have arrogantly ignored all demands other than indelible ink. The Chairman and Secretary must honourably tender their resignation if they cannot discharge their constitutional duty to ensure genuinely democratic elections.

BERSIH, a coalition of 64 civil society groups and five political parties, urges all concerned citizens to join in the mass rally on 10 November which will be attended by leaders and representatives of civil society and political parties.

For enquiries, please contact the secretariats; Faisal Mustaffa 019-2232002 or Medeline Chang 012-2192010.
