Bekas Timbalan Menteri Kemajuan Tanah dan Koperasi Datuk Dr Tan Kee Kwong mencabar Lembaga Pembangunan tanah Persekutuan (Felda) menjalankan siasatan audit oleh badan bebas ke atas ke semua 43 anak syarikat agensi itu dan mendedahkannya untuk tatapan rakyat.

Kata Dr Tan langkah ini perlu bagi membersihkan imej ‘bankrap’ yang didakwa dihadapi Felda setelah rezab tunainya menjunam kepada RM1.2 bilion walaupun harga pasaran antarabangsa minyal sawit mentah berada pada paras tinggi sejak tiga tahun berturut-turut.

Beliau berkata demikian sebagai respons kepada kenyataan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak Ahad lalu di Putrajaya yang mengatakan pihak yang mendakwa Felda bankrap adalah pengkhianat.

“Malangnya apa andalah (Najib) yang menjadi petualang sebenar yang telah merompak wang simpanan kepunyaan golongan peneroka. Saya yakin pada pilihan raya umum ke-13 nanti rakyat akan menentukan nasib 60 kerusi parlimen yang berada di dalam tanah-tanah rancangan Fekda di seluruh negara. (more…)

KENYATAAN MEDIA
KELAB ANWAR IBRAHIM (AIC)

Kelab Anwar Ibrahim (AIC) memandang serius berita terbaru berkaitan cubaan pengantungan 4 Ahli Parlimen Pakatan termasuk Ketua Pembangkang, yang telah diusulkan di Parlimen melalui Aturan Urusan Mesyuarat tanpa melalui notis 7 hari seperti kebiasaan.

AIC mengangap ini sebagai langkah terakhir Regim UMNO-BN untuk terus berkuasa di samping laporan Wikileaks (daripada sumber diplomat Singapura) yang mengaitkan tengkuk Presidennya, Najib Tun Razak dengan kes pembunuhan berprofil tinggi.

Malaysia menuju demokrasi gelap! di samping sistem kehakiman yang terus-menerus menerima kritikan antarabangsa, parlimen terus diperkudakan Regim UMNO-BN, Speaker Dewan Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia “boneka yang dilacurkan” untuk menjayakan setiap kehendak mereka. Tiada lagi pemisahan kuasa dan limitasi Kuasa Eksekutif yang telah dijanjikan Perlembagaan Malaysia.

Ini juga digunakan untuk mengalih isu, mengenai kenaikan harga barangan yang “mengikat” leher Rakyat, maka pelbagai helah & berita digunakan untuk mengalih pandangan rakyat mengenai isu utama ini.

Melalui tindakan ini, tujuan Regim UMNO-BN , tidak lain tidak bukan adalah untuk menguasai 2/3 majoriti parlimen yang akhirnya membolehkan mereka meluluskan usul pensempadanan semula kawasan pilihanraya yang akan memihak kepada mereka . Kita boleh mengimbau sejarah lalu ketika Pilihanraya Umum ke-11 di mana modus-operandi yang sama digunakan untuk mereka memenangi lebih 2/3 majoriti di Parlimen.

Demokrasi di Malaysia adalah contoh Demokrasi-Otoritarian di mana menurut Filasuf John Locke “ianya jelas melawan akal manusia yang normal, sebuah kerajaan berpelembagaan tanpa keadilan bagaikan sekumpulan perompak kejam!”. Tiada sekelumit harapan untuk rakyat terus bebas di dalam demokrasi seperti ini. Perubahan wajib dilakukan!

AIC percaya bahawa tindakan ini jelas menggambarkan betapa terdesaknya Regim Najib Razak untuk terus berkuasa, ini mengingatkan rakyat tentang kes Perampasan Kuasa di Negeri Perak, mereka memperkudakan Sistem Kesultanan & Mahkamah dalam menjayakan misi jahat mereka.

Walaupun penuh dengan sekatan polis, ia tidak menghalang orang ramai memenuhi kawasan lapang taman Melati dekat sini untuk mendengar sendiri penjelasan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan rakan-rakannya tentang tuduhan terbaru para pemimpin Singapura melalui WikiLeaks.

Dan di majlis itu, Anwar tidak hilang karismanya sebagai pemimpin apabila berkata, “Adakah kamu fikir saya ini bodoh untuk memasuki perangkap apabila tahu ianya perangkap? Jangan cabar saya terlalu berlebihan! Saya akan dedahkan kes pembunuhan yang telah dilakukan dan cuba ditutup rapat.”

“Wikileaks, apa bukti kamu, bawa Lee Kuan Yew ke mahkamah. Saya tidak peduli, kamu fikir saya buat atau tidak. Itu bukan urusan saya. Kamu ada rakaman video atau catatan doctor, bawa ke mahkamah,” kata Anwar disambut tepukan gemuruh para penyokongnya.

Anwar merujuk kepada dakwaan para pemimpin Singapura dan diplomat mereka dalam apa yang dinamakan sebagai pendedahan oleh WikiLeaks melalui media Australia yang antara lain mendakwa Anwar telah diperangkap oleh musuhnya dalam kes sodomi dan Anwar sendiri memasuki perangkap itu. (more…)

H.E. T Jasudasen
High Commissioner
The Republic of Singapore

Dear Sir,

Greetings. The latest exposure in WikiLeaks has triggered a serious and alarming signal for Malaysia-Singapore relations. While I agree that the confidentiality of diplomatic correspondence must be respected, I also hold that a healthy friendship with neighbouring countries must be based on trust and mutual respect.

The cables released by WikiLeaks contain the opinions of Singapore’s senior politicians and diplomats. Their comments show, despite being our close neighbour, Singapore Government leaders view Malaysia with contempt and disdain. For example, Malaysian developmental decline was simplistically attributed to “incompetent” leadership. Besides the defamatory remark by Lee Kuan Yew that the Opposition Leader was “set-up”, Singapore’s Government senior leaders also described Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak as an “opportunist” and asserted that he was involved in a murder case.

These comments, coming from Singapore Government officials, were not expressed in private conversations or within a close circle. Instead, the cables revealed that Singapore’s political leaders and diplomats had been actively communicating such damaging remarks to the international community. From the nature of these communications, one can not help but to interpret that Singapore is actively engaging in a covert exercise to undermine Malaysia’s international standing. As a Malaysian, despite my differences with the ruling parties, I find it extremely offensive when a foreign government deliberately spreads unverified information to tarnish my country’s image.

For decades, Malaysia-Singapore relationship has been marred by suspicion and mistrust. I personally believe that there is room for improvement in the relationship between our two countries. We place high hope in professional diplomats to play an important role in promoting positive relations between countries.

But unfortunately, in spite of our proximity and long-term cross-border exchanges, Singapore diplomats have still failed to assess Malaysia accurately. It is particularly insulting when Singapore informs other countries that Malaysia was on the brink of ethnic riots, and Singapore risked having to face a flood of refugees of ethnic Chinese from Malaysia.

I believe I am not the only Malaysian who feels disturbed by the patronizing and arrogant attitude of Singapore’s leaders. I hereby, seek your clarification on the above-mentioned issues. I hope the Singapore High Commission on behalf of the Singapore Government will explain to the Malaysian public whether the opinions of its officials as revealed on WikiLeaks reflect the government’s official view on Malaysia.

Finally, I would like to reiterate that as a Malaysian Member of Parliament, I value a good relationship with our neighbour Singapore and have no intention to create a diplomatic brawl over the leaked information. However I seek an honest explanation so that our future relations can again be placed on a sound footing.

Thank you.

Yours Sincerely,

TIAN CHUA
Vice President of the People’s Justice Party
Member of Parliament Malaysia [Batu]

==Press Statement ==

Wikileaks

As legal counsel for Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim (DSAI), we are of the view that the reporting of the story in the media in particular reference to DSAI’s ongoing criminal trial is clearly subjudice and may constitute contempt of court. Commenting on the evidence and the making and publication of statements that relate to the alleged guilt is strictly prohibited. It impinges on the integrity of the trial and the Judge is duty bound to protect the sanctity of the trial especially from non participants in the criminal justice system, in this case, the media.

We as lawyers would not take issue with political exposures but in this instance the media reports have hit at the heart of the trial and hence we are most concerned. Judges are human. More so our client is a high profile politician and the perception of the public is paramount.

It is most regrettable that the local media chose to rely on reports and publish matters that are unsubstantiated, based on hearsay and conjectures. Up to this moment, our checks with our counterparts and various sources have indicated that no such references were made by Wikileaks and more so, the specific allegations as reportedly published in the Sun Herald (Sydney Morning Herald) which is purported to have first broken the story. This has further enhanced our view that the press, in particular the New Straits Times (at page 4 of the Prime News column) and the Front page (headlines) in the Utusan Malaysia newspapers has deliberately skewed the reporting on DSAI and focused on DSAI alone and conveniently left out all the serious allegations against PM Najib and others. Clearly this two Umno-owned newspapers have explicit sinister motives and have practised irresponsible journalism.

To the allegation that “it was a set-up job and he probably knew that, but walked into it anyway” as was supposedly quoted by the media, our simple answer to that is: which man in his sane and right mind would deliberately walk into a trap if he has prior knowledge of it. It is a totally illogical and completely nonsensical notion. At this point, it is material to note that at that time DSAI was riding high on the back of an unprecedented electoral gain. Note that DSAI was already aware of something sinister when alluded to it in a Malaysiakini interview he gave on 3 July 2008 (copy of the same is attached) where he replied to a question posed: “Weeks before that, I was alerted that the IGP (Inspector-General of police, Musa Hassan) was concocting something, and that was five days or six days before someone came to convey to me that this was serious. Well, this was conveyed to me and I thought how they would allow the issues of ’98 to resurface”.

http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/85544

De facto PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim today revealed that the threat on his life was serious enough for someone to give him a bullet-proof vest.

While he denied that he wore the bullet-proof vest at the 10,000-strong rally in Kampung Baru on April 14, Anwar said his wife, PKR president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail ticked him off for not taking such threats more seriously.

“Azizah is, of course, very annoyed with me. She said, ‘Please take precautions.’ I promised her, yes, I will do it probably at public functions when necessary,” he told Malaysiakini in a 30-minute interview this morning at the PKR headquarters.

He however pointed out that even a bullet-proof car failed to stop the assassination of Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto.

“I go through every single detail, it is the nature of the job, for example, … in minute detail even the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, you’ll be surprised – not as a journalist – just to see how they could do it. Look, she was in a bullet-proof vest, bullet-proof car. So…”

Anwar said that given his experience a decade ago when he was savagely beaten after he was arrested, there is legitimate fear that it could happen again.

“I went through it, I know what it is. If you were to arrested today, for example, I’m not saying that nothing would happen, I wouldn’t know. To me, it almost impossible, it’s incredulous to imagine that…”

When asked what he thought of the assurance of his personal safety given by Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, this was what Anwar had to say.

“Well, the prime minister is a nice man, he says many things but I don’t know who will take him seriously. Look he says, “Well, we will give them protection.” I know Saiful has been given police protection 24 hours a day. Did you see any of them here? Not that I want police around me.”

Tell us what happened from the time you heard about the police report made by Saiful to the time you came out from the Turkish embassy.

Weeks before that I was alerted that the IGP (inspector-general of police Musa Hassan) was concocting something, and that was five days or six days before someone came to convey to me that this was serious. Well, this was conveyed to me and I thought how they would allow the issues of ’98 to resurface.

At that time, did you have any inkling that it could be something similar to the accusations…

Yes, yes. They said it was something to the effect. The information of this very senior (police officer) used the word zalim – the fact that it was cruel and unjust, that’s why it was conveyed to me.

The following morning I called my staff – the senior staff and also part-time volunteers including Saiful – they were all in. I said, “You guys better watch out. There is going to be problems ahead. This is coming from IGP’s office, the IGP personally.”

Interestingly enough, later one of my staff informed me that Saiful personally called Musa Hassan to inform him (that I spoke about problems ahead) about the meeting. Then I took it seriously, but it was a bit too late.

Saiful at that time was still working with you?

Yes, yes. It is really, as you say, a breach of security. The three main staff – Nik Nazmi (Nik Ahmad), Sim (Tze Tzin) and Nurul Izzah (Anwar) – left to contest in the elections. Rahimi (Osman) was holding the fort. And of course Syed Husin (Ali) in the office, Ibrahim (Yaacob) and Din Merican.

The first to go around to contact the states and divisions, that was Rahimi. Then he brought in Saiful at the last moment as a volunteer. Saiful approached me, although he was known to be in Biro Tatanegara (civic consciousness bureau) and an Umno outfit before that.

I didn’t know, he actually started off as a driver, bringing even (former Anwar political secretary) Nasharuddin (Jalil)’s son (Salman) who was killed in a (hit and run) road accident – that’s still questionable until now. The case is closed. I want to reopen the case – the circumstances of the ‘murder’ or the death is still very questionable.

So later on, Rahimi was using Saiful a bit more, there were two of them. Then I had Sim to come back and we had another person, Farhash (Wafa Salvador) who just came back from London but because of the transition – that was it.

But I didn’t know about his (Saiful’s) connection. Because there were so many emails from his old friends attacking him, I called him in, “What’s this?”. He said, “Sir, swear to God, it was my connection with Najib’s outfit when I was in Uniten (Universiti Tenaga Nasional) and then some of them became my personal friends”. I said, “Okay”. We actually take things a bit easy.

But anyway, that night I was in Quality (Hotel), I heard about it early enough I think it was a leak from the police not from the hospital. You see it could all be orchestrated by the police but always when you see Musa is consulted, he’ll say Bukit Aman does not want to get involved and they will not want to take the police report. This all shows the sign that the police are not part of it. It’s a deliberate design to say the police are not involved.

Anyway, when we got the wind of it, it was almost Maghrib (7.30pm). Almost Maghrib time or before Maghrib time if I’m not mistaken. Very soon. Immediately after when he (Saiful) was on the way to the hospital.

So you suspected that Saiful had gone to the police station and the police brought him to the hospital.

Yes, that seems to be sequence now. But we have to get the correct defence in the event this moves forward. I don’t understand how they are going to do it – trying to establish what happened, what didn’t happen. How can they concoct (the alleged sodomy) with all this media scrutiny. Unlike in the past, there is certainly a little more (scrutiny).

So I sense now there is a deliberate attempt on the part of government leaders to say, “Well, just leave it to the police, it’s nothing political.” Our worry is also leaving it to the police.

Now today, I’m calling a press conference on something very revealing in the Altantuya case which shows the same pattern of the IGP and AG (attorney-general) either fabricating or concealing evidence. So you see the same pattern from 1998 to Altantuya case to my case and of course, of hundreds if not thousands of cases.

Even here in this case, the moment Najib’s name is mentioned – delete. In this case for Altantuya, I will show you clear evidence how evidence given to the police, all these things were deleted even in the 112 statement (sworn witness statements to the police).

We will leave that to the press conference.

Then I alerted the whole (party) leadership, Azizah and the whole family were here, the Quality Inn or Quality Hotel, then this Chong said, “You may have to leave” (for some place safe). I was very reluctant so I kept on ignoring it, talking about some other subjects.

Then they started, (Syed) Husin decided to convene a separate political bureau meeting to come out with a strong recommendation. I told Syed Husin, “Let me think about it. People may interpret it as running away or seeking political asylum.” Then of course, we started communicating with the relevant parties.

And Azizah said, “What will happen if they come in?”

So you were worried about the 1998 situation where you were arrested straight away.

Arrested is something else. I’m not as worried about being arrested as being assaulted, and you know, accident or food, poison – I don’t rule (them) out because we know what is at stake – you see, we come out with the whole transition (to new government), the numbers we are talking about, so some of them are just really against it, the fear.

Can you imagine the position of the IGP and AG – I know the bitterness, the worry, it’s there. Although I did convey, I did actually deliberately send out messages even to them – and say “Look, I’m here in this country, take care”. Many of them know me well. Don’t continue provoking us.

So I decided then the morning after prayers that I will go now.

Early in the morning?

Very early in the morning. The security guys have experience in this. I have said no right through until 6 o’clock, then I left. Very smart… [laughs]

So I left and went straight (to the Turkish embassy). The ambassador was there waiting. I went in. I had breakfast and then I went to sleep.

Did you sleep that night?

No, about half an hour, an hour, because they were all there coming back and forth – the legal team, the security, issues. Because I didn’t know what it was all about, in detail, where, and things like that.

At the embassy, the ambassador was called up by (Foreign Minister) Rais (Yatim) and given very strong assurance for my personal safety. There was (Home Minister Syed) Hamid (Albar)’s statement, (Deputy Prime Minister) Najib (Razak)’s statement, although Najib’s statement said ‘leave it to the police’, so it’s a bit tricky. Anyone who said leave it to Musa Hassan, I think there is a big question mark.

But then, that was it. The moment we’ve all the statements, making explicit about my personal security then I told the ambassador, I think I’d leave.

I don’t feel comfortable (staying in the embassy) because a lot of things you’re not able to do. Unless you decide to seek political asylum, that’s normal. If you don’t, you have to be with your people, you have to plan, listen to them, you have to start meeting people. Were you convinced by party leaders to go to the embassy or was that your own decision?

Of course, I do take into consideration what Azizah and the family say. She is okay with the whole political situation. To deal with the malicious attacks, she is quite used to it. But to imagine another major assault on my personal safety, I saw her (face), it was very real.

She said, pleading, “Anwar, please, it is something beyond us.” The security situation is beyond us.

It is so serious that even people brought me in the last few months, a bullet-proof vest. Where you wearing one on April 14 (the Kampung Baru rally)?
