An independent audit company’s probe into the controversy-ridden government tourism development company, Pempena Sdn Bhd, has shown that the company, despite its multi-million ringgit investments, has been performing poorly.

PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) in its report, released to the press today, stated that as of June 2008, Pempena had invested a total of RM54.4 million in 24 companies but only four managed to generate profits.

The independent audit firm in its report also showed that Pempena had invested in five non-functional companies. PWC has proposed the company to pull out of these investments, a move that would incur “a loss of approximately RM20 million”.

Veteran opposition lawmaker Karpal Singh has given Chief Justice Zaki Azmi a week from today to resign from his post for allegedly admitting to corrupt practices while in private practice.

This came after Karpal claimed for the first time today that there was an audio recording of Zaki’s confession made two weeks ago despite the CJ’s denial of making the remarks.

“Zaki cannot, and should not, deny that he had in fact uttered the words. There is a audio recording of what he said in Kuching,” Karpal, also DAP’s Bukit Gelugor MP, said in a statement today.

Tarikh 8 September 2008 merupakan satu tarikh penting kerana ketiga-tiga parti anggota Pakatan Rakyat menerima kedudukan istimewa orang Melayu, bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa rasmi dan agama Islam sebagai agama persekutuan dan menjamin agama lain bebas untuk diamalkan sepertimana termaktub dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan.

Pakatan sentiasa mengulangi pendirian menjunjung prinsip-prinsip asas yang terkandung dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan. Persefahaman ini dicapai kerana kami semua sedar ianya tidak bersalahan dengan agenda Pakatan Rakyat yang sememangnya melewati sebarang sempadan kaum dan budaya.

Pagi ini, saya bersama YAB Menteri Besar Selangor Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim sekali lagi mengulangi komitmen kami yang dipersetujui 8 November lalu di majlis perjumpaan khas dengan guru KAFA di Stadium Malawati, Shah Alam. Di majlis tersebut, Tan Sri Khalid mengumumkan kenaikan elaun guru KAFA, dari RM 738.30 kepada RM 1000 dan elaun penyelia KAFA, dari RM 1112.00 kepada RM1500.

Tahniah buat Tan Sri Khalid dan Kerajaan Pakatan di Selangor. Doa buat guru KAFA agar amanah mendidik umat memantapkan aqidah, akhlak dan shaksiyah dapat dilaksanakan sebaiknya.

“We join tonight, tomorrow we start work.”

These were the words of PKR’s latest elected representative recruit Gabriel Adit Demong, 58.

Adit, who until two days ago was an independent state assemblyperson for Ngemah – a predominantly-Iban constituency in Sarawak’s central region – has on Saturday hosted a 330-table dinner in Sibu with PKR chief Anwar Ibrahim as the guest of honour.

Adit’s speech before a crowd of 4,000 people at Sibu Trade and Exhibition Centre was listened intently by his new boss Anwar, the recently-elected MP for Permatang Pauh and parliamentary opposition leader.

Ketiga-tiga parti anggota Pakatan Rakyat menerima kedudukan hak istimewa orang Melayu, bahasa Melayu dan agama Islam sebagai agama persekutuan sepertimana terkandung dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan, kata Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim hari ini.

Menurut beliau, isu berhubung perkara itu tidak perlu dirisaukan lagi kerana persefahaman mengenainya telah dibuat antara ketiga-tiga parti anggota Pakatan – PKR, DAP dan PAS.

Malah, tegas Anwar lagi, kenyataan bahawa kesemua pihak telah bersetuju mengenai perkara itu, telah dikeluarkan pada 8 September lalu.

Majlis makan malam di Sibu semalam dihadhiri lebih dari tiga ribu orang. Selain menerima penyertaan ADUN Kawasan Ngemah; Gabriel Adit, saya turut mengalu-alukan kemasukan Beginda Minda beserta 12 ribu yang lainnya ke dalam parti.

Jamuan sebegini mungkin saja biasa di kalangan masyarakat Cina saperti mana ketika majlis-majlis ceramah di Semenanjung. Tetapi kehadhiran teman-teman Iban, Dayak, Urang Ulu, Bidayuh, Penan dan Melanau malam tadi mampu dinukilkan sebagai permulaan gerakan rakyat pendalaman. Turut sama hadhir ialah wakil kepimpinan PKR Pusat iaitu saudara Tian Chua dan Dato’ Salehuddin Hashim.

Kehadhiran khalayak dalam majlis semalam jelas menunjukkan bahawa rakyat Sarawak juga tidak mahu tertinggal dari menyertai arus perubahan. Ini merupakan petanda baik kerana mesej yang ingin kita bawa jelas melewati sempadan etnik dan kebudayaan. Kerjasama yang lebih akrab di antara PKR dan DAP Sarawak wajar disegerakan. Hayat BN di Sarawak, kian hari sudah sampai ke penghujungnya. Ngap Sayot!

About 12,000 people in Sarawak, including 6,000 supporters of Ngemah state rep Gabriel Adit, have applied to join PKR.

Their application forms were submitted to PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim at a huge dinner gathering in Sibu tonight which saw more than 4,000 people in attendance.

Also signing up with the opposition party is controversial former PRS Balleh division publicity chief, Beginda Minda.

He was forced to leave the state BN component party following his call on the chief minister and his deputy to step down.

Adit, 58, claimed that he had submitted the application forms for PKR membership from 6,000 of his supporters tonight.

The other 6,000 new applications were believed to be from former PRS members and non-party members.

YES, we are staring at the gathering clouds of an economic crisis. Sure, economic fundamentals are strong, as government ministers keep saying, but that’s only half the picture.

The other half is the financial scenario, as economic and financial principles are two different things. The sub-prime crisis that began in the US and western countries is essentially a financial problem. But in an interdependent world, a financial crisis in one place could result in an economic crisis in another.

KUALA LUMPUR: The prosecution has again tried to move the sodomy trial of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to the High Court.

The Sessions Court was to set a date for the trial yesterday after ruling against the prosecution’s application on Nov 7 to move the trial saying that the transfer certificate signed by Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail was invalid.

But Senior DPP Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden told Judge S.M. Komathy Suppiah that the proceedings should be adjourned pending further orders from the High Court following the prosecution’s application to revise her decision.

High Court Justice Mohamad Zabi­din Mohd Diah has set Nov 20 and 21 to hear the application for the revision.

After the winding-up by the second finance minister on the budget debate at the committee level in the Dewan Rakyat on Nov 11, I felt compelled to write my two-cent worth of thought on our economy.

For a start, news about China’s stimulus package of US$586 billion, or RM2.1 trillion, not capable of counteracting the effect of the US-led slowdown and that the euphoric rally in the Asian bursas lasting only one day, which was Monday, are indeed very frightening.

The RM5 billion injection to shore up ‘undervalued stocks’ by ValueCap, as instructed by the finance minister, flies in your face and how much quicker, you thought, will it dissipate.
