Participants of illegal gathering face prosecution: IGP

KLANG: Police have warned that legal action will be taken against anyone attending an unlawful gathering sponsored by Hindraf that is expected to be held at the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) Sunday.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said Saturday that no permit had been issued for the gathering, and anyone attending it would be breaking the law.
Police had rejected an application to hold the gathering on the grounds that it would jeopardise public order.
However, the organisers who are connected to Hindraf, the banned Hindu Rights Action Force, were expected to go ahead with the gathering.
Ismail said such a gathering would adversely affect security and disrupt public order, especially if it were held at a place like the KLCC, where many people converged during weekends.
"To those involved in organising the gathering, I give the reminder not to hold it. It will not only be against the law, but will inconvenience people and traders and cause traffic congestion," he told reporters after a ground-breaking ceremony for a surau here.
Earlier, in his speech, Ismail said incitement and extremist demands could cause rifts among communities and arouse hatred for one another.
He said there should be early education on the need for tolerance and mutual respect in building a nation.
Meanwhile, in Temerloh, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said he had directed Ismail to personally monitor the situation and take firm action if Hindraf created trouble.
"He will be responsible for ensuring that the illegal organisation does not jeopardise the (security) situation," he told reporters after nominations for the March 6 Kerdau by-election.
Hishammuddin said he believed the organisers were trying to create an atmosphere that was being witnessed in the Middle East, but Malaysia was a different situation altogether, and they were not getting the response they wanted.
"We know their intentions, we know that certain quarters are trying to bring about sentiments of the kind we see in the Middle East.
"But the situation here is different and it is not heading in that direction," he said. - Bernama

tunku : show no mercy to the illegal gathering. malaysia is not like some countries where there is no platform for anyone to voice their we have political parties, ngo and above all we have election every five years. do not create trouble and chaos in the country just because of personal gain.i am sure that hindraf is not acting by its own in this illegal gathering.pakatan rakyat has its hand in it.we hope the police will take stern action on those who stage illegal gatherings.the people are fed up with is bad for the businesses and also for all.

KPI: PKR Should Start With Anwar, Says Wee Choo Keong

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 23 (Bernama) -- Former Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) member of parliament (MP) Wee Choo Keong said the party should scrutinise its top leaders, especially advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's performance, before subjecting other MPs to the internal Key Performance Index (KPI) test.
Describing the KPI as not transparent as the reports were kept exclusively for the top leader, the Wangsa Maju MP who quit to become Independent, also claimed that Anwar's performance was not up to mark.
"If PKR feels there is a need for KPI, then it should start with KPI on politicking by their top leader...YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been appointed Economic Advisor to Selangor and he has announced he will bring in RM4 billion worth of investments into Selangor.
"Where are the investments?," he asked in his latest blog posting
Wee was commenting on an online news report that the party's special committee headed by its supreme council member, Nik Mahmood Nik Hassan, had classified seven PKR MPs, including deputy president and Gombak MP Azmin Ali, as 'non-performing elected representative".
The six other MPs were Azan Ismail (Indera Mahkota), Datuk Kamarul Baharin Abbas (Teluk Kemang), Abdullah Sani (Kuala Langat), Lee Hoy Sian (PJ Selantan), Yusmadi Yusoff (Balik Pulau) and Loh Gwo Burne (Kelana Jaya).
The KPI test also found former PKR MPs Wee Choo Keong (Wangsa Maju), Tan Tee Beng (Nibong Tebal), Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim (Bayan Baru), Zulkifli Nordin (Kulim Baharu), Mohsin Fazli Samsuri (Bagan Serai) and N. Gobalakrishnan (Padang Serai) as non-performers.
"As far as I know, under severe political constraints, the six PKR MPs did perform as best as they could, especially Teluk Kemang MP, Datuk Kamarul, who has done a good job in the Public Accounts Committee.
"As for the Konsensus Bebas MPs, there was no need for PKR to do the KPI as we have resigned from PKR because we could no longer subscribe to their constant politicking, politics of "Cakap Tak Serupa Bikin" (Not Walking the Talk)," he said.
Wee also criticised PKR for trying to emulate the test, which was the brainchild of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
"PKR was trying so hard to emulate it but with no transparency and good governance... The KPI is a clear example that the PKR leader is bankrupt of ideas," he said.

tunku : anwar the moron is emulating the bn style, that means bn is good.after all this so called economic advisor who promised rm4 billion worth of investments in selangor actually is a big liar who had lied to the people of selangor.whatever investments coming in the pr states are thru the federal government hard works. i guess anwar's kpi is the best in lying, talking craps and sodomizing.he is the best for all that.

Poser Over Nik Aziz's Inaction Against Son-in-law

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 21 (Bernama) -- A non-governmental organisation today questioned why Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat did not take any action against his son-in-law, Abdul Ariffahmi Abdul Rahman for alleged mismanagement of a government-linked company.
Pertubuhan Jaringan Melayu Malaysia national secretary Tengku Amalluddin Sani Raja Ahmad Sufian said until today no action had been taken against Abdul Ariffahmi after he relinquished his post as chief executive officer of Kelantan Menteri Besar Incorporated early last year.
Tengku Amalluddin Sani said Nik Aziz should have taken action against Abdul Ariffahmi instead of passing the buck to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
Nik Aziz should not wait for the MACC to conclude its probe, he told Bernama here Monday.
The MACC started investigating Ariffahmi, who was appointed CEO of the corporation on Sept 20, 2009, on issues pertaining to financial misappropriation and on a sponsored haj trip at the end of 2009.
Tengku Amalluddin said as a responsible leader, Nik Aziz should take appropriate action against Abdul Ariffahmi, whom he had promoted as the CEO.
"Instead, Nik Aziz continues to defend his son-in-law," he said.
Abdul Ariffahmi's services was terminated by Nik Aziz following the advice of national PAS leaders and public outcry.

tunku : what make this ngo think that nik aziz would take action against his son in-law? he will never take any action against his family members or even his party members as they are all saint in his eyes.even though they do all sort of things, nik aziz will defend them no matter what.

PAS Changes Stand To Gain Votes In Merlimau And Kerdau By-elections

JASIN, Feb 20 (Bernama) -- The change in the PAS stand that it purportedly emphasizes on the struggles for the Malay cause is a tactic to gain votes in the by-elections for the Merlimau state seat in Melaka the Kerdau state seat in Pahang on March 6.
Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said if it were true that PAS gave priority to the Malay struggles, he challenged the party to voice the needs of the Malays in Penang as well as in the other states under the opposition pact administration.
"I am convinced that this is the objective (of PAS spiritual leader Datuk) Nik Aziz (Nik Mat) to gain support in the by-elections," he told reporters after a meeting with members of the Melaka Village Development and Security Committee (JKKK) members in Merlimau, near here, Sunday.
Yesterday, in his speech when opening a function at the Shah Alam City Council Auditorium, Nik Aziz said the struggles for the Malay cause must be given priority in view of its status as the indigenous race in the country.
Mohd Shafie, who is also the Minister of Rural and Regional Development, said the PAS stand and approach could change and they were not only using the religion but also the race for their political gain.
"This is nothing new, today he remembers, tomorrow he forgets (his pledges), so we should not be easily duped by the promises that are not fulfilled," he said.
He said the Barisan Nasional (BN) was consistent in the struggles to improve the welfare of all races regardless of where they lived in the country.
The BN candidate for the Kerdau by-election will be announced on Feb 22 while the candidate for Merlimau would be announced the following day.
The Kerdau state seat fell vacant following the death of incumbent Assemblyman Datuk Zaharuddin Abu Kassim, 63, from the BN on Feb 12.
Meanwhile, the vacancy for the Merlimau state seat was due to the death of the incumbent Assemblyman, Datuk Mohamad Hidhir Abu Hassan, 54, on Jan 20.

tunku : this is the specialty of the chameleons like anwar and nik aziz. they can change their views according to their audience's interest.if the audience is malay audience, then they are the champion of the malays,if the audience is chinese, then they are the chinese champion and it goes on and on.i still find it amused that there are morons who believe these jokers.these jokers lie to them in front of their faces but they are blind to notice it.nik aziz will change his view on this matter soon.just wait for the moment.nik aziz knows that the majority malays are distancing themselves from pas and now he's trying to please them.

Nik Aziz Only Wants To Win General Election

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 16 (Bernama) -- Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has slammed Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat for desperately wanting to win the general election and not fight for Islam.
He said the PAS spiritual leader's wish was to win the general election and rule the country with DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).
"Nik Aziz openly called Muslim Umno members infidels and is prepared to work with the devil which rejected the Islamic state championed by PAS.
"His support for non-Muslim views that Muslims become less Islamic is to garner support from non-Muslims for the general election.
"Priority is given to non-Muslims and not to enslave himself to Allah," he said in his blog Wednesday.
He urged the Kelantan menteri besar to stop abusing and misinterpreting Islam for his political end.
"Have faith in Allah and stop confusing Muslims in Malaysia just to win the general election," he added.
Dr Mahathir said contrary to claims, Nik Aziz only fought in Malaysia and not throughout the oppressed Islamic world.
He challenged Nik Aziz to ask DAP to state that the Pakatan Rakyat coalition government would ban gambling, the sale of liquor and accept hudud law.
"If DAP refuses, will PAS be willing to take on DAP or will PAS remain silent as DAP's help is important to win the general election?.
The former premier said Umno did not claim only its members were Muslims and bound for heaven although Nik Aziz labelled others as primitive.
"Muslim Umno members fight for race, religion (Islam) and country. The Umno constitution states that a person is considered a Malay if he is a Muslim.
"Nik Aziz will not include this condition as Malays are primitive and non-Muslims as they do not support PAS," he added.
tunku :.believe me, there's no point asking the senile old nik aziz anything as he will talk nonsense again and will put all the blames on umno as usual.nik aziz has indeed prostituted Islam for personal glory.he has divided muslims in the country. Tun Mahathir has asked this senile old man what has he done for Islam locally and internationally??????????? ZERO.

Syabas sues S'gor MB Khalid and PJ Utara MP Pua

SHAH ALAM: Water distribution concessionaire Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) has filed defamation suits against Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim and Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua.
They were served the writ of summons on Feb 11 and the case was heard at the Kuala Lumpur High court Monday, when both were given a month to enter their defence.
Khalid told a press conference Tuesday that he was being sued for the state's criticism of the Syabas Budi Fund.
Under the fund, Syabas collects money from Selangor residents who are willing to relinquish the 20 cu m of free water, valued at RM11.40, provided by the state government.
Syabas, which claims that about RM350,000 has been collected to-date, says it uses the money to help those with no acess to proper water supply in the state.
Khalid had said the fund violated the concessionaire's agreement as it resulted in Syabas receiving double payments, as the state was already paying the concessionaire for the free water supplied to Selangor residents.
Pua, who was also at the press conference, said he was being sued for merely stating in an article in a Chinese daily that if water concessionaire companies could not settle their debts, they should return the rights to manage the state's water to Selangor.
Khalid said the defence for him and Pua was already underway.
"Our lawyers have been instructed to prepare our defence. I will be represented by Edmund Bon while YB Tony Pua has appointed Gobind Singh Deo," said Khalid.
Meanwhile, Klang MP Charles Santiago said Syabas had sent him a letter of demand on Jan 13.
"They sent me the letter of demand over my statement in a Chinese daily that the company was making too much money from water disconnections," said Santiago.
He said he had alleged that Syabas had made about RM 50mil since 2005 from water disconnections.
However, there was no follow-up on the letter of demand by Syabas, said Santiago.
Both Santiago and Pua are on the Selangor water panel, which was set up to facilitate the state taking over its water industry from Syabas, Puncak Niaga Sdn Bhd (PNSB), Syarikat Pengeluaran Air Sungai Selangor Sdn Bhd (Splash) and Konsortium Abass.

tunku : after getting slapped with the writ of summons from Syabas, pua can only says that he was just being sued for merely stating in an article in a chinese daily that if water concessionaire companies could not settle their debts.are you sure that is the only thing you said? knowing this moron pua, like the LCS issue recently,he accused the government for buying those ships very expensively.when the navy gave the details, he said that he was just asking.khalid and santiago need not introduction anymore. these jokers talks more than they work and let Syabas settle with these people at the court BIG question,will the state government pay for these jokers legal cost like they are paying for shuhaimi legal cost now?

Dr Mahathir Hopes Government Will Issue Work Permits To Palestinians In Malaysia

SHAH ALAM, Feb 14 (Bernama) -- Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad Monday said he hoped the Malaysian government would issue work permits to Palestinians who were in Malaysia so they could work and earn a living to support their respective families.
"I hope the government will consider issuing work permits for them because some of them have come here with families but their children cannot go to school," he told reporters after launching the Palestinian Cultural Organisation Malaysia (PCOM) here Monday.
He said the Palestinians' representatives here had met and appealed to him on this as such hoped the government would be sympathetic to their plight.
When asked whether the issue of work permits related to Malaysia's reluctance to ratify the United Nations (UN) Convention on Refugees, he said: "The problem with the UN Convention is that we have to make sure that the refugees are refugees."
"Some times we have other people trying to make use of the special rights given to refugees to seek protection and residence in a country like Malaysia."
To a question as to how the Palestinians could have their own independent state, Dr Mahathir said: "Well we have to get public opinion to apply pressure on governments, we cannot get governments to make decisions but public opinion will help us to achieve our objectives."
He said the Muslims in America were divided and did not work together while the Jews were united and had their own strategy especially in the cause for Israel.
Earlier in his speech, he said the establishment of the Palestinian Cultural Organisation Malaysia (PCOM) was crucial to preserve the Palestinian culture which distinguished them from the rest of the Arab world.
He said despite the cultural differences, the Palestinians were still Muslims and were brothers to other Muslims in the world.
However, he said the Zionist regime in Israel had occupied most parts of Palestine and if they managed to occupy the whole of Palestine, the Palestinian culture would likely vanish.
Therefore it is every Malaysian's duty to help their Palestinian brothers in their cause, he added.
tunku : the government should look into this matter seriously.we MUST help them by giving work permits to the palestinians who are eligible to work in malaysia.we can't help them by gunning down the zionist regime but we can help them by giving jobs to them and help them financially so that they can survive.we MUST help them.

Lim Kit Liar Siang.

Tell The Truth And Admit You Met Me, Says Tun Dr Mahathir

SHAH ALAM, Feb 14 (Bernama) -- Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad Monday said the opposition leaders who he met over 20 years ago before they were arrested under Ops Lalang in 1987 should tell the truth and admit that they had met him.
"Well it happened over 20 years ago. I remember distinctly meeting them, I can't remember the faces of those people. I certainly remember that Karpal (Singh) was not one of them and I think (Lim) Kit Siang is one of them," he told reporters after launching the Palestinian Cultural Organisation Malaysia (PCOM) here.
He said this when responding to a reporter's question whether he would take up the challenge thrown by DAP chairman Karpal Singh to name the opposition members whom he met prior to Ops Lalang.
Dr Mahathir said if the opposition leaders were truthful and not prone to telling lies, he thought that they should admit that he met them prior to the operation.
He said the opposition leaders had appealed to him to prevent their arrest under the Internal Security Act (ISA) then and that it was the reason he had met them, to ensure them that they would not be arrested.
Dr Mahathir said:"It is embarassing for me after ensuring them that they would not be arrested but they were arrested by the police and of course I had to sign the detention order."
Touching on news reports that his former deputy, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had business operations based in the United States, Dr Mahathir said: "That we know but to expose it we must have the evidence."
"He is rich not poor and that is why he can go here and there and tell nonsensical stories to tarnish my name."
"Maybe after this I will receive a lawyer's letter from Anwar threatening to sue me to keep my mouth shut," Dr Mahathir said.
Asked whether Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud should step down before or after the state election, Dr Mahathir said: "It's up to the people of Sarawak to decide, I think they know best whether he should step down or not."
However, Dr Mahathir said if Taib were to step down there should be somebody to replace him, not like former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak who stepped down without a good succession plan.

tunku : it is proven now that lim kit liar siang is a big liar.he is just so cheap.lying right on the face.well what do you expect from such a person. as for anwar, no matter how devil he is , to his followers he is a saint. they will never question his misdeeds.whatever he does is right.even he sodomized his coffee boy, to them it's not wrong.

Hindraf is back to make chaos

59 Human Rights Party members arrested

KUALA LUMPUR: Police arrested 59 members of the Human Rights Party in Perak, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Negri Sembilan on Sunday ahead of an upcoming anti-racism rally.
They were nabbed at roadblocks as party members went on a roadshow to promote the rally.
Six were arrested in Perak, 27 in Negri Sembilan, five in Selangor and 21 in Kuala Lumpur, according to the Bukit Aman Media Centre.
However, the party claimed in its website that 75 members had been arrested.
The Human Rights Party had announced it would hold a massive rally to urge the government to ban the controversial Interlok novel from the literature reading list for secondary students.
According to the party’s website, the Feb 27 march from the Petronas Twin Towers to the Dang Wangi district police headquarters was themed “Solidarity against Umno’s racism.”
Following the march, they plan to lodge a police report to compel the government to withdraw the book from classrooms.
The Interlok novel, introduced as a component for the Malay literature subject for Form Five students, courted controversy when Indian groups claimed that it contained inaccurate and disparaging information about the community.
After a series of protests, including by MIC, the government agreed to amend the disputed portions of the book but insisted on using it in schools.
While MIC agreed with this decision, several other groups are demanding that the book be completely withdrawn.

tunku : recently anwar the moron had met several indian leaders and now we can see the result of the meeting.these people just received fund from anwar to create chaos. now that anwar case will resume and election bells are ringing, the gangters hindraf is out again to make trouble in the country and it is directed by anwar. the government must be very stern in their action againts these not give them face. the novel 'interlok' should not be withdrawn at any cost.

BN's Kerdau rep Zaharuddin dies of heart attack, 16th by-election looms

TEMERLOH: Barisan Nasional's Kerdau assemblyman Datuk Zaharuddin Abu Kassim has died of heart attack after collapsing at his house Saturday.
He was rushed to the hospital here and was pronounced dead at 7.15pm.
With the death, the Election Commission will have to call for the 16th by-election since the March 2008 general election.
Zaharuddin, who remarried early last month, has been hospitalised for unstable blood pressure.
He was treated at Sultan Ahmad Shah Hospital in Temerloh for two weeks.
The assemblyman’s poor health had prompted Pahang Umno to appoint Kuala Krau MP Datuk Ismail Mohamed Said as coordinator for Kerdau.
In May, Zaharuddin, 63, was warded for two months in the National Heart Institute in Kuala Lumpur for a stroke after an operation for ulcers in the intestine.

Nurul Izzah should learn more.

Nong Chik: RM10 Million Overhead Bridge Is KLCC Project

KUALA LUMPUR, 11 Feb (Bernama) -- The RM10 million pedestrian bridge linking the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre to the KLCC Impiana Hotel is not a government project.
The cost of building the 153 metre bridge is borne fully by the Petronas subsidiary, KLCC (Holdings) Sdn Bhd, the Federal Territory and Urban Wellbeing Minister, Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abdidin, clarified today.
The government is not at all involved in the project, and neither is he or the Mayor of Kuala Lumpur, Raja Nong Chik said in a statement.
"The appointment of the contractor was by rigorous tender and 100 per cent handled by the KLCC," he said.
The pedestrian bridge, which would be air-conditioned and have escalators and lifts for senior citizens and disabled people along with security features such as CCTV, was being built as a corporate social responsibility, he said.
As such, the allegation by Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar that the project cost too much and was a waste of money was baseless, Raja Nong Chik said.
Nurul had also asked whether the contractor had been appointed by open tender.
Raja Nong Chik had said the bridge was the first phase in the overall project of building 12km of pedestrian bridges to link all major roads in Kuala Lumpur to public transport stations.

tunku : she had questioned why the bridge cost is so high right as a responsible mp,she should had find out what materials will be used or what type of bridge it is before making fuss about the construction is a bridge with escalators,lifts,air conditioners and what does she expect the cost will be? 7000-8000 per meter? now raja nong chik has revealed that it is not the government money,so i guess nurul will shut her mouth and concentrate to help the people rather than talking on issues without knowing the facts.

PAS Youth Chief's Moral Policing Move Under Fire

SHAH ALAM, Feb 10 (Bernama) -- PAS Youth chief Nasrudin Hasan Tantawi's proposed crackdown on immoral activities on Valentine's Day on Monday in states administered by the DAP-PAS-PKR pact has come under fire from his own party.
Shah Alam MP and the city's PAS chief Abdul Khalid Samad said Selangor PAS rejected the proposal.
He said Nasrudin was not empowered to speak on behalf of the state governments.
"He (Nasrudin) does not represent the state governments, and the state religious departments always curb immoral activities whether it is Valentine's Day or not," he told a news conference at his office here.
Nasrudin, responding to Khalid's statement, said PAS Youth would go ahead with the policing despite the opposition and would distribute leaflets on the matter.
"We are only carrying out our responsibility. If any of the Pakatan state governments object to it, PAS Youth will accept that," he said.
In KUALA LUMPUR, MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said the proposed PAS Youth crackdown was the harbinger of the implementation of Islamic state policies by the DAP-PAS-PKR pact.
He said the DAP-PAS-PKR state governments in Kedah, Penang, Kelantan and Selangor had to adopt a stand on the matter.
"I challenge Nasrudin to explain to us the jurisdiction of PAS Youth and whether the state governments will allow PAS Youth to identify places which couples frequently visit as well as arrange with the local government officers and PAS members to carry out moral policing," he said.

tunku : one wants to uphold Islamic value and the other one is against it to please it superiors in dap and pkr.pas is divided into two groups. it is sad that pas can't do anything it preaches all these while just because they have to bow down to dap and pkr.khalid samad the new modern "ulama" in pas has said all.

RMN Denies Cost Of LCS Excessive and reveals Tony Pua's stupidity

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 9 (Bernama) -- The increased cost in materials besides state-of-the art weaponry and other aspects are the reasons why the cost of procuring six Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) is over RM6 billion, said Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) chief Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Jaafar.
He said the ships, which would be built locally by Boustead Naval Shipyard in collaboration with six reputable overseas shipyards, had better capability than the Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) RMN was currently using.
"The cost covers the overall cost of building the LCS including the aspects of sophisticated weaponry, sensing and radar equipment that have very high capability and also sonar to detect enemy submarines.
"The national defence industry is growing and depends a lot on foreign expertise and this is the main reason why the LCS cost so much," he told a press conference at his office at the Ministry of Defence here Wednesday.
He was responding to comments by Tony Pua, the Member of Parliament for Petaling Jaya Utara, which were carried in the Malaysiakini news portal that the six ships cost 870 per cent more compared to purchases of the same by other countries.
Abdul Aziz said Pua's remarks were off the mark as most nations would not reveal details on their military assets.
"It could also be that the costs abroad are much lower because the countries concerned have established defence industries and local expertise in ship maintenance and installing weapons and sensing systems.
"The costs forwarded (by Pua) also do not give a true picture of the overall cost, for example certain countries do not include the cost of GFE (Government-furnished equipment)," he said.
He added that Pua's claim that the New Zealand navy bought OPVs for just New Zealand Dollar (NZD) 90 million (RM211 million) each was also not correct as based on the ministry's findings, this and the cost of purchasing LCS by that country had yet to be finalised and that the amount stated (NZD90 million) was the price before 2004.
He also said that Pua's claim that the United States navy procured LCS at much lower prices was baseless as the MP did not have in depth knowledge on the matter.
Abdul Aziz further said that the procurement of the ships was done through the open tender process which would involve 60 per cent of the material to be sourced locally and would stretch over two Malaysia Plans, the 10th and 11th, a period over 10 years (up to 2020).
He said RMN badly needed the LCS as they had surface and undersea capability unlike the OPVs which had limited capability.
Furthermore, LCS are equipped with sophisticated defence systems like command and control, electronic warfare, various modes of engine control, three-dimensional radar, sea and air missile systems and anti-submarine torpedo capability, he said.
Other countries enlisting the use of LCS currently include the United States and England.

tunku : one should know the facts and figure before making this case tony pua clearly proved he made baseless allegation against the purchase of LCS.tony can at least surf the net before open his stinking mouth.what he suppose to do is asked the minister to explain in parliament about the purchase not making baseless allegations and making false remarks of the purchase.we cant just make public of our defense purchases and its intelligence.

Nik Aziz Denies Challenging National Fatwa Council To A Debate

KOTA BAHARU, Feb 8 (Bernama) -- PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat denied that he had issued a challenge to the National Fatwa Council to a debate over several of his statements that were reported by the media lately.
Instead, the Kelantan Menteri Besar said he was only willing to debate other parties but not the council.
"I do not know where this news came from. It could be that there are certain quarters who are trying to attain fame by spreading such news (that he (Nik Aziz) challenged the council to a debate)," he told reporters at his office here Tuesday.
The past few days local dailies had carried reports that Nik Aziz was willing to debate anyone including the council over statements he made.
The statements had not gone down well with the public with some claiming they could affect the faith of Muslims and cause disunity among them.
Kelantan Umno Veterans Council religious bureau chairman Assoc Prof Mohd Noor Deris had also taken Nik Aziz to task over the statements besides issuing a challenge to the latter to a debate over them.

tunku : this senile old man is afraid to debate with the one who he knows that have more knowledge than him.excuses after excuses.again,if nik aziz is brave enough and not a faggot he should accept the challenge from md nor deris.i wonder why he is so afraid of md nor deris.

PKR Leadership Pool Drying Up

KOTA KINABALU, Feb 7 (Bernama) -- The move by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) to form a presidential council to fill the leadership void in Sabah showed that the party's leadership pool is drying up, Puteri Umno chief Datuk Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin said.
The party was not even able to appoint a leader in the state, she added.
"Puteri Umno believes the move by Sabah PKR chief Pajudin Nordin to quit the party and announce intention to join Umno on Saturday, after only a month at the helm of Sabah PKR, is a reflection of the actual problem plaguing PKR, either in Sabah or in the peninsula," she told Bernama when contacted.
PKR president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail announced Sunday that a presidential council would be set up, with her as the interim chairperson, following Pajudin's departure.
Pajudin's appointment as Sabah PKR chief had come under fire from 18 of 24 PKR divisions in the state.
Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Yahya Hussin said the latest development in PKR showed that PKR was unable to find its leaders in Sabah because all the good ones were already with the Barisan Nasional (BN).
"It's a clear sign that the party is not accepted in Sabah. The writing is on the wall, there is no need for me to say more," he said.
Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) president Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan said the move by PKR's own leaders to leave the party, raised questions about the party's credibility.
"The events that are unfolding in Sabah are very interesting. It's anybody's guess why they are leaving but one of the reasons is the indication that they have lost confidence in the leadership of their own party.
"These people have decided to leave and prefer to be with and support the BN, and this is the conclusion that obviously must be seen by members of the public," he said.
Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) president Datuk Liew Vui Keong echoed Pairin's view, saying the people would now able to judge conclusively about the severity of PKR's internal leadership problem.

tunku : pkr is dying in sabah.even sapp does not want to be with pakatan in sabah.if pakatan is making an impact in sabah for sure sapp will be one of it's coalition.this clearly shows how well pkr is accepted in sabah.

Nik Aziz chicken out.

Nik Aziz Will Only Debate With Anyone With Position And Authority On Islam

TUMPAT, Feb 6 (Bernama) -- Pas spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik is willing to debate on Islamic issues, but only with someone with position and has the proper authority.
The Kelantan Menteri Besar said Islam did not prohibit its followers from debating religious issues to seek the truth as long as the Quran and hadis were made the "middleman".
"I am prepared to have the debate with anyone as long as the persons concerned have the proper authority and with position," he told reporters after launching the Al-At'am scheme at Dataran Pasir Pekan near here Sunday.
He said this in response to a challenge made by the chairman of the Kelantan Umno Veterans Council's religious bureau, Prof. Mohd Noor Deris to debate on religious issues with Nik Abdul Aziz.
Following a positive response from Nik Abdul Aziz, Mohd Nor, in a statement yesterday, suggested that the debate be between him and the Kelantan Menteri Besar only and to be held in a public place.
Meanwhile in BACHOK, Kelantan Umno deputy liaison chairman Senator Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin welcomed the proposed debate between Nik Abdul Aziz and Mohd Nor.
He said Kelantan Umno would support any initiative to hold such a debate, including with the National Religious Council, to resolve the confusion on religious matters raised by the menteri besar.

tunku : if he is a true ulama(which he is not) , a true muslim he will debate with anyone to uphold Islam or its related issues.he had shown to us that he's so arrogant and think that he is very high above of others.the person who wants to debate him is a professor by professional. he is not just an ordinary person. why is nik aziz so afraid of prof mohd nor? this is because he knows that prof mohd nor who was once an ally of pas knows every detail about the dirty old man.nik aziz is a biggest coward who talks crap.he does not walk the talk at all.

Sabah opposition in chaos

Ten Tawau DAP Leaders Quit

TAWAU, Feb 6 (Bernama) -- Ten Tawau DAP leaders including publicity chief James Leong Yun Fui have quit and joined Gerakan, a Barisan Nasional (BN) component party.
Their resignation was announced by Gerakan vice-president Tan Sri Liew Yun Fah at a Chinese New Year open house here Sunday.
The group handed their Gerakan membership application forms to Sabah BN chairman and Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman who passed them over to Liew.
Leong said they had lost confidence in the party leadership who were only good at talking and incapable of delivering their promises.
He said only BN was capable of bringing development to the people via the 1Malaysia concept introduced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Musa said the resignation of DAP leaders proved that the opposition had failed to solve the people's problems and rendered them irrelevant to Sabah.
He was confident that more DAP leaders and members would leave the party to join BN component parties.
Meanwhile, Liew said the resignation was a positive sign that BN could recapture Sri Tanjung state seat from DAP.
He said the Chinese community had realised that only BN could bring them development and champion the people.

tunku : do not trust the opposition as they are bunch of liars. just look at the states that they are ruling......what's the difference they have made? nothing,in fact it is worst. glad that sabahan knows the actual colour of the opposition.they will never ever be able to do anything for sabah except for bringing chaos and disunity among sabahan.they can only talk and make empty promises.

PKR Sabah chief quits.

PKR Sabah Chief Quits Party, Wants To Join Umno

KOTA KINABALU, Feb 5 (Bernama) -- Parti Keadilan Rakyat Sabah chief Pajudin Nordin announced Saturday that he has quit PKR and will apply to join Umno.
The 42-year-old Pajudin, who became Sabah head of PKR less than a month ago, said that he decided to leave the party because he was disappointed with the leadership of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and his wife, Datin Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.
Anwar, the de facto head of PKR, and Azizah, the PKR president, were not serious about handling Sabah-related issues and making fools of the party's leaders in the state, he told a joint press conference with Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman at Sri Gaya here.
"I regard PKR in Sabah as not relevant to be considered a party of the future or a party headed for Putrajaya (the seat of government). Thus I declare myself out of PKR and resign from all posts in the party," he said at the official residence of the Chief Minister.
After observing political developments, he decided to apply for membership in Umno because he saw that the party and Barisan Nasional had long worked for the people, Pajudin said.
He said he had submitted his resignation by fax, SMS and e-mail to the PKR head office Saturday evening, and believed that many others in the party would leave as well, including branch heads and committee members who had expressed dissatisfaction with the central leadership.
"I believe that my departure will be followed by many friends in the Sabah PKR who can see that the party is in chaos with no directions and without support from the central leadership," Pajudin said.
The appointment of Pajudin as PKR Sabah chief was a surprise because the state leader had always been picked from among the branch heads before this. Pajudin was vice-chief of Tuaran.
Eighteen of the 24 branch heads protested against the appointment.

tunku : if a state party chief quits the party then you can imagine the scenario and the morale of the is true what muhyiddin yasin said that pkr is 'parti kian runtuh'.anwar is a failure and i still don't understand why pas and dap wants this man to lead best guess is financial assistant by anwar who had jews connection behind him.

EGYPT : Students Being Evacuated At No Cost

CAIRO, Feb 4 (Bernama) -- Malaysian students are being evacuated from strife-torn Egypt to Jeddah by the federal government at no cost, said Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom.
Dismissing claims that the students would be charged for the evacuation, he said the government also provided accommodation, bus transportation, food and drinks for them.
He said the government also arranged the process of issuing passports and visas for the students free-of-charge and paid their airport tax.
"We need cooperation from all parties but ironically, certain quarters are casting aspersion on our rescue effort," he told reporters here Friday.
Jamil Khir said the Royal Malaysian Navy's Bunga Mas 5 auxiliary ship, which had called at the Cairo Port, had yet to be mobilised as the aircraft were sufficient to fly out Malaysian students from Cairo.
"Anyway, travel by sea will take a longer time. From our meeting with the National Security Council, Wisma Putra and the Putra 1Malaysia Club yesterday, we feel that we will able to complete the rescue mission by deploying additional MAS, AirAsia and the Royal Malaysian Air Force planes," he said.
About 3,000 Malaysian students are expected to be flown from Cairo to Jeddah Friday, he added.

tunku : the opposition would take advantage on anything that they can....but this time they are too this moment they should join hand in hand with the government to speed up the process of evacuation,offer help and not criticizing the government.they had showed that they are not patriotic at all.they only know about politics and greed for is so sad that we have this low standard of oppositions in malaysia. they should know that it's not easy to evacuate 11000 people from not compare with singapore which has few hundred people and 4000 indonesian in egypt.Thanks to the GOVERNMENT for their endless effort.

Nik Aziz has prostituted Islam !

Nik Aziz Uses Religion Too Much For Political Gain - JMM

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 1 (Bernama) -- PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat has been using religion too much for his own political gain, Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) deputy president Omar Saleh said.
"If the opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was described as 'political prostitute', then I would like to know is Datuk Nik Aziz is someone who prostitutes religion because he has been using religion to fulfil his desire for power," he told Bernama here Tuesday.
Omar was commenting on Nik Abdul Aziz's remarks during the Tenang by-election campaign, describing those who did not vote for PAS as "jahiliyah" (ignorant).
"I would like to ask Datuk Nik Aziz what is the status of my ancestors and those who did not vote for PAS before the party was established? Are they 'kafir' (non-believers) too, like what was stated in the 'fatwa' issued by PAS?" he said.
Omar said Anwar and Nik Abdul Aziz were two "pak turut" (sycophants) who were willing to become DAP's yes men, alleging that Nik Abdul Aziz had also sold the religion for the sake of DAP's political interest.

tunku : you are absolutely right omar, for me this senile old man has prostituted the religion for his political gain. they can simply change their views,their fatwas to suits their political i had said many time, nik aziz is not an ulama,he is just a dirty politician who prostitutes the religion to fulfill his desire for power.nik aziz and anwar is in the same boat. pity their blind supporters.

Nik Aziz Wants To Run Down Political Enemies, Not Defend Islam - Tun M

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 31 (Bernama) -- Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat is only interested in running down political enemies and not defend Islam against attacks by Lee Kuan Yew.
He regretted Nik Aziz' defence of Kuan Yew's view that Muslims in the republic should not hold fast to Islam.
The Kelantan Menteri Besar said that the Singapore Mentor Minister's view was not as bad as Muslim Malay nationalists.
"Imagine Islam under Nik Aziz, Karpal, Kit Siang and Guan Eng. Nik Aziz will probably agree that Islam be compromised if asked to by partners," he said in his new entry in his blog today.
He said the situation now is different than during British rule where many Malay leaders consumed liquor while the Malay workers took toddy.
Dr Mahathir said the Muslim Malay rule presently was due to the struggle of Malay nationalists.
"They ban liquor during government functions, inculcate Islamic values, allocate funds for Islamic activities, facilitate Muslims to perform haj, build mosques, set up Universiti Islam, Bank Islam, Takaful and ban national lottery."
The former prime minister said the biggest triumph for PAS and Nik Aziz was to divide Muslims in the country.
"PAS divide Muslims by having two imams during Friday prayers and banning marriages between PAS and Umno members," he added.

tunku : i agreed 100% with Tun, pas biggest achievement or biggest triumph was to divide Muslims and they are still doing it. now it is even withdrawing from introducing hudud law or establishing Islamic state.nizar had said loud and clear at Perak State Assembly about it. to me is not an nik azizulama, he is just a politician who uses religion as his political can see it clearly, he did not condemn lee kuan yew's statement on the Muslims in the republic should not hold fast to Islam at all.if he's truly an ulama he had condemned lee's statement.he is just a dirty politician.
