RM50 Credit Card Tax

KUALA LUMPUR: Applicants issued with new credit and charge cards next year will have to pay the RM50 ($20.40) service tax upfront.

For existing card holders, the charge will be imposed on the anniversary date of cards.

Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah, who confirmed this with The Star yesterday, said the Government would impose the service tax for credit and charge cards from next year.

'Existing cardholders will only be charged the ser'vice tax through their issuing banks upon the anniversary date of the card.

'For example, if the card's anniversary date is in January, then you pay the tax in January. But if the date is in April, then you only pay the tax in April,' he added.

The minister's clarification puts to rest nagging doubts among the millions of credit card holders in the country who have been raising queries since Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced the new tax when he unveiled Budget 2010 in October.

Najib, who is also the Finance Minister, had said that a RM50 service tax for principal credit and charge cards and a RM25 for supplementary cards would be imposed from January.

This has led to card holders asking if the charges will be imposed from Jan 1 or on the anniversary dates of the cards, which are usually issued for a three-year period.

Those holding a string of cards were most eager to know before deciding to cancel some of their accounts.

A check with the customer service departments of several commercial banks showed that they had yet to receive any definite confirmation.

Some banks said they were still awaiting for a directive from Bank Negara, while others think the tax would be imposed on the anniversary dates.

A third group of banks has also offered to absorb the tax for the cardholders, on condition a certain amount of money was spent within a certain timeframe.

Cardholder Y.L. Sim, who called up the bank to cancel his credit card, said the bank advised him 'not to be hasty.'

'The officer said that they had yet to receive a formal directive from Bank Negara (on when to impose the tax). But I was worried as the New Year was nearing,' he said.

Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Chor Chee Heung, when contacted, advised cardholders to plan accordingly, saying holding two credit cards was enough.

'Even I intend to hold only two credit cards,' he added.

He urged those who had large outstanding credit card debts to stop using the cards and meet the issuing banks to work out a repayment mechanism.

There are some 11 million credit cards circulating in the country.

By Eva Norlyk Smith, Ph.D.

As an increasing number of consumers struggle with credit card debt, many are choosing to walk away from their debt altogether. According to the latest report from Moody’s Investors Service, credit card defaults continued their upward climb in August of 2009 after leveling off slightly in July.

Moody’s August report showed a sharp increase in defaults, or charge-offs, i.e. credit card debt that is more than 60 days old and which card issuers has written off as uncollectable. The default rate climbed to 11.49 percent, almost a full one percent higher than the 10.52 percent reported for July. Compared to 12 months ago, the default rate is up almost 70 percent, from 6.8 percent in August of 2008.

For card issuers this is bad news. Default rates at 11.49 percent means that they are losing 11.49 cents for every dollar of credit card debt on the books. And more defaults are in the pipeline. Early-stage delinquencies, i.e. accounts with payments late by 30 to 60 days, increased to almost 5.8 percent, compared to 4.6 percent a year earlier.

Stolen Engines and Missing Plane in Mindef

From: The Cynic
This is an extract from the Star newspaper on 21 Dec 09:
"Defence Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi later admitted that it was
inside job and it was reported that a brigadier-general, who was a
department head at the time, and 40 other armed forces personnel were
sacked last year over the incident. On why the brigadier-general
continued to receive his pension and other retirement benefits despite
the sacking, Najib said such decisions would depend on the wrong that
was committed by the brigadier-general and it would be up to the Armed
Forces to decide on that."

The BG who was involved in the treachery continues to receive his full
pension benefits. Why? Reasons may vary:
- he is a relative of a top man.
- he is the link of foreign powers (Iran?) which want the engines.
- he is the fall guy for those involved in the theft.

For all you know, the Malaysian intelligence agency, the Special
Branch, might be also involved in some way as it is doubtful that they
are not aware of happenings of events concerning the nation's

Ah, but then the brazen robbery at a military armoury of weapons, the
use of explosives to blow up a Mongolian model and the subsequent low
profiling of the incident, the acquittal of a lawyer alleged to be
involved with the appointment of judges, and other such cases say only
one thing - DISGRACEFUL.

How come, a person with such greatness (so-called), unity leader by

So what is transparency, efficiency and capability.

So to the BIG ONE guy, rather than thinking of getting the new taxes
better think of recovering all the wasted monies.

Malaysia's Bad Broadband

Up till fews years back when MSC was a hype, Malaysia can be said to
be in the fore front of IT development. Now it is pathetic case where
we are far behind other countries broadband speed. Whether it is TM or
P1, potong or not potong, every thing is the same!! The charges are
also high compared to other countries if you consider upload and
download speed. Service providers often stress on download speed but
one should realise that upload speed is equally important. Could
authorities at least have a look at these matters and make sure the
citizens of Malaysia get a fair deal?

Brain Drain from Malaysia

The Brain Drain Plan
Posted by: Yogeswaran Gopala Krishnan
We have talked and debated about the brain drain situation in
Malaysia. It is happening in front of our very own eyes and more often
then not, we are left wondering why not enough is done to plug this

Now, if we carefully think about it, maybe the country can benefit
from brain drains.

We have a growing number of unemployed graduates who can’t speak
English. If the clever ones who are able to articulate in English can
leave the country, we would have enough jobs for these low performers.

Malaysia is not a design hub but more of a Manufacturing/Agricultural
country. Let’s face it, we don’t have to be rocket scientists to
control operators and make sure factory operations runs. It does not
even have to run efficiently as Malaysia does have a certain low
production cost advantage to all these multinational companies, who
will likely to continue to invest.

Yes, going backwards is the way forward……it will benefit the country
and politicians.

Low performers do not need to be highly paid. Where are they going to
go? They are not competitive and cannot survive anywhere else except
in Malaysia. They are not smart, English illiterates, contented
without any ambition and hence easily controlled and manipulated.

With all the highly paid intelligent people gone (they are now
Singapore’s problem), the country can is able to function at a lower

Sure, income from the taxes will be reduced but we have PETRONAS, to
take care of the Politician’s….ahem….the People’s needs as there will
be more oil money to go around – remember, there will less intelligent
people to question how the money is being spent.

The unintelligent people will not argue and will grab whatever crumbs
(i.e. Development Projects) that are thrown at them.

The Plan is Fail Proof!

Juz return from holiday in Singapore!

Juz return from holiday in Singapore!
Posted by: limbilly

Yah, even with X2.5 conversion rate, I rate this trip amazing,
exciting and valuable.

It never amaze myself, the great maintenance and management done on
their facilities, public transport and infrastructure.

Since this is personal holiday trip with my wife, decided to walk
along the streets in SG like backpackers.

Anyway, I do find, eventhough 2.5conversion, yet stuffs like
Timberland, GAP, Nautica, CK, Gucci, Cartier, Mathur Farker, Esprit,
Mango and more, after conversion back to MYR were still cheaper even
inclusive of 7%GST.

Probably, since SG is an entreport and does not apply import and
excise tax too imported materials, consumer can get themselves better

Lucky to SGreans in this case compared to us, paying all the added
taxes. Imagine we can get offer items of Timberland jeans @ 69SGD =
172MYR. Where can we get such price in Malaysia for this brand.

Taxi were cheaper and no forcing consumer on monopoly like KLIA. In
SG, we can flag a taxi up to our choice. In KLIA you were paksa to buy
KLIA Limo. Yet comparing Changi to Orchard versus KLIA to Mid-valley,
distance we similar, but in SG I pay 12SGD= 30MYR yet in Malaysia I
pay 48MYR from KLIA to Mid-valley.

Added, service and quality were poorer compared to SG cab. They uses
Sonata, Stream, Toyota Crown, which was much spacious and clean
compared with the Wajas, Wiras or Iswaras.

For the SG Zoo's and Nite-Safari, oh please Zoo Negara, Zai Taiping
and Zoo Melaka, belajar dari yang pandai, apa itu interesting,
educational and exciting Zoos.

People can have properly manage, clean and well maintained
Restaurants, Dining and Recreational facilities inside a zoo. Yet we
could not even maintain a clean toilets in our zoo.

Really a pale comparison from Zoo Melaka, Zoo Taiping and Zoo Negara
compared with Singapore's Zoo+Nite Safari.

Security and safety were never a concerned walking on their streets.
With bags and bags of our ferverous shopping spree in Vivo City,
Orchard Central and Wisma Atria, while walking in Geylang after dinner
and walking back to our hotel after picture snapping in Orchards
Christmax decorations and yuletide celebrations.

They even have Marsh like, lake type, man-made waterfall gardens built
ontop of a 12storey shopping in Orchard Road. Imagine the view and the
feeling. It is greens inside a city.

Honestly Malaysia, we still have plenty to learn from SG in
maintenance, proper management, good tourism attraction and what
people views in safety/security.

It is definitely great compared to our quite or lukewarm feeling of

I'll rate, the fun and greatness 8 in the scale of 10.

The only thing that is lousier than Malaysia is the food, yeah it is
still better at our side.

So satisfy with my shopping, it is actually a well spend holiday.

Once upon a time in malaysia............
Posted by: blitzkreig
Once upon a time in malaysia,as told by my elderly relatives, there
were racial harmony and racism was something rare.

As potrayed in the late P.Ramlee's movies,although there were certain
scenes where racial slurs were included but it was not offensive and
definitely different from today's movie where racial slurs are not
only distasteful but unartistic and offensive.

That aside,just a decade ago,there was a thoughtful gesture by the
government to share celebrations of the malaysian races by giving them
thoughtful names depa-raya and kongsi-raya and although it sounds
funny but malayians seems to appreciate the kind gesture and for a few
years everyone was happily joking about it until some racist wannabe
politician pointed out that it was unislamic and disrespectful to
share because hari raya is second to none and all other religious
festivities cannot be on par and suddenly more racist came out to
condemn festive promotions and anything and everything that can be
manipulated to boost their political career and the sad thing is that
the government bowed to pressure of these racist and "there goes the
neighbourhood" !!!!

From then on,more and more oppourtunists took the cue and start trying
their luck fanning racial unrest as a stepping stone for their
political career and hurling racial slurs in public and even in
Parliament !!!!!

Sadly,the government choose to turn a blind eye to these racist ploys
and today,this is the result.

Anyone can argue to the contrary but i think the results speak for
itself or otherwise the govt wouldnt have spent so much time and money
fixing what was not broken !!!!

My advise to the govt is,if we are sincere about eradicating racism
then those from UMNO who keeps provoking other races should be brought
to the books or better yet,sacked !!!!why let one bad apple spoil the
whole bunch !!!!

but ,then again,thats only if the government is sincere....

Malaysia will have 4% GST

kai189 wrote:

KUALA LUMPUR: The 4% Goods and Services Tax (GST) is expected to be implemented by the middle of 2011.

The GST Bill was tabled for the first reading in Parliament by Finance Minister II Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah yesterday.

He told the house that the second reading of the Bill was scheduled for March next year.

Speaking to reporters at the Parliament lobby later, Husni said the GST implementation would be a win-win situation for all, as the Government would receive an additional RM1bil in revenue for the first year while the business and export sectors would save RM4.1bil and RM1.4bil, respectively.

“The Government is proposing GST at a rate lower than the (current) sales and services tax rates, and to allow certain exemptions from GST, especially on essential goods such as padi, vegetables, basic food (rice, sugar, flour, cooking oil), fish, meat and chicken, to ensure it will not burden the rakyat, especially the lower income group.

“The main purpose for introducing GST is to make the current taxation system more comprehensive, efficient, effective, transparent and business friendly. The sales and services tax will be abolished and replaced with GST,” he said.

The current sales and services tax is from 5% to 10%.

How can this be a win-win situation for all, when the poor man-on-the-street is coughing out this money with blood?

Warren Buffett and President Barack Obama are related

From: saki seto <>

Warren Buffett and President Barack Obama are related, according to
genealogists at

But you have to go back a few hundred years to make the connection.

In a news release today, the company says its research shows President
Obama and Buffett are "7th cousins three times removed."

The common link: Mareen Duvall, a Frenchman who arrived in Maryland in
the 1650s as an indentured servant and later became a successful,
politically conservative land owner and merchant.'s research shows Duval is President Obama's 9th great-
grandfather and Buffett's 6th great-grandfather.

In the release, genealogist Anastasia Tyler has this quote:

"We've all watched Pres. Obama and Warren Buffett's ongoing
association, from Buffett's official endorsement of Obama's 2008
presidential campaign to their sometimes differing views on economic
policy. Like most family members, the President and Buffett may not
always agree on everything, but this latest discovery confirming they
are related may shed light on why the two seem to see eye-to-eye on
many issues."

Or it may not. Seems like a stretch to me, but all in good fun. got some headlines in 2007 when it determined that
President Obama and actor Brad Pitt are related. They are 9th

That means Warren Buffett is more closely related than Brad Pitt to
the leader of the free world.

And if you're wondering, while Warren Buffett and musician Jimmy
Buffett are friends, both play stringed musical instruments, and long
thought a family relationship was possible, DNA analysis has
determined they are not related.

The number of people emigrating this year (2009) is estimated to be

Malaysia is the loser in this sorry equation, and though some among us
boast ‘if you dont like it, leave it’, this sorry reply will sooner or

The outflow of human resource - the most precious possession that any
country can claim - is perhaps one of the few peaceful acts that the
ordinary citizen can perform today in protest to their unfair
treatment. The country loses, and we all lose too in the process. But
the ruling elite in Malaysia today has to ask itself this simple
question: Why is so many Malaysians chosing to leave the country of
their birth (estimated to be more than 2 million over the last 20
years and increasing at an alarming rate), what were the factors that
prompted them to do so, and what could the elite have done to win and
retain their confidence in the Malaysia.

What is a Nation without it’s people? The wealth of a Nation is in
what it’s people can produce and when the cream of your people start
heading for the exit in droves – something is dreadfully wrong. The
tyrants will soon be faced with the prospects of ruling a Nation of
Zombies that expect to be cuddled and spoon fed all the way from

Hang Tuah was a Chinese - DNA test showed

Be critical readers - DNA and race
Posted by: monadc
I was just browsing through when a recent comment caught my eye -
something about Hang Tuah was Chinese. I believe it's a reference to
the still-floating "scientific articles" that's frequently blogged
about how a team of scientists from the Federal Association of
Archaeology & Research of Michigan, USA (which does not exist, btw)
discovered the remains of the "5 Sahabat", did DNA testing and
discovered that Hang Tuah was a Chinese.

I'm not interested to argue about the supremacy of one race over the
other. My only concern is about how people often accept things at face
value without being more critical with what they read, especially if
it's something that appears scientic. The term "DNA testing" often
comes across as sophisticated and I noticed people's tendency of
believing something easily if it sounds scientific enough for them.

Genetics and DNA studies have come a long way now, and are able to
answer so many questions, thanks to the completion of the Human Genome
Project. However, people need to remember and understand that DNA
testing can only do so much. You can't actually identify someone's
ethnicity from the gene coding. Let me try break it down. Your bones
will identify you as one of three major races: Caucasoid (Europeans),
Negroid (African, Native Australian) and Mongoloid (Asians). Your DNA
can help trace your ancestry. Your DNA can determine paternity test.
DNA can help with identifying a body. Your DNA can prove whether the
blood left at a crime scene is yours. Your DNA sequence can provide
information on what diseases you are susceptible to. Your DNA may be
able to provide major population affiliation. But your DNA does not
classify your race by 100%. It does not tell you if you are 100%
Chinese or 100% Indian or Eskimo or Mexican.

But interestingly enough, our DNA can show how diverse we are as a
human being. The mutations, among other markers on our genes trace
back your heritage. Therefore, there is no such DNA test that can
state 100% that you are of this ethnicity, but it may be able to
identify your heritage as being 45% African, 33% Native American and
so on. If my grandmother was Indonesian, my father was a New Zealander
and I was born in Johannesberg - does that automatically make me an
African? Maybe by citizenship, if the government made me one. Human
migration is a common thing throughout the history of mankind. It is
on a wider scale today because travelling is now cheaper. Along the
way, our genetic makeup experiences shifts, changes and mutations as
other factors play their influences on us. But that is the beauty of
it because that's what made us who we are and it creates diversity.

This is the reason why there is much protest against UKBA plan on
testing asylum seekers to determine whether or not they came from
Somalia in order to limit false claims for asylum. Because of the
reasons I have outlined above, the plan is flawed. Very. It's also
discrimination on a grand scale.

Tbh I cannot understand the argument about whose ethnicity is better
than whose, along with its stereotype. Malays are lazy. Chinese are
greedy. Indians are troublemakers. White people are ignorant. Really?
What about those who do not fit in the traditional stereotype. A
person is who he or she chooses to be. Be fair with your judgment. If
you take a piece of your DNA and have it analysed, you'd be surprised
at the revelation of who you are really and how diversed your true
origin is.

Isn't there enough hate in the world already? It'd be far wiser to use
great knowledge like this to forge better friendships with one another
rather than using it to attack each other. Celebrate diversity.

As for Hang Tuah, well, every culture has a folk hero. Think of him as
a positive anthropological significance rather than something to fuel

The problem: The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a
synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from
reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
Unfortunately, acidity (a prominent characteristic of tomatoes) causes
BPA to leach into your food. Studies show that the BPA in most
people's body exceeds the amount that suppresses sperm production or
causes chromosomal damage to the eggs of animals. "You can get 50 mcg
of BPA per liter out of a tomato can, and that's a level that is going
to impact people, particularly the young," says vom Saal. "I won't go

The problem: Cattle evolved to eat grass, not grains. But farmers
today feed their animals corn and soybeans, which fatten up the
animals faster for slaughter. More money for cattle farmers (and lower
prices at the grocery store) means a lot less nutrition for us. A
recent comprehensive study conducted by the USDA and researchers from
Clemson University found that compared with corn-fed beef, grass-fed
beef is higher in beta-carotene, vitamin E, omega-3s, conjugated
linoleic acid (CLA), calcium, magnesium, and potassium; lower in
inflammatory omega-6s; and lower in saturated fats that have been
linked to heart disease. "We need to respect the fact that cows are
herbivores, and that does not mean feeding them corn and chicken
manure," says Salatin.

3. Microwave Popcorn

The expert: Olga Naidenko, PhD, a senior scientist for the
Environmental Working Group,

The problem: Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in
the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be
linked to infertility in humans, according to a recent study from
UCLA. In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and
pancreatic cancer. Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals
to vaporize—and migrate into your popcorn. "They stay in your body for
years and accumulate there," says Naidenko, which is why researchers
worry that levels in humans could approach the amounts causing cancers
in laboratory animals. DuPont and other manufacturers have promised to
phase out PFOA by 2015 under a voluntary EPA plan, but millions of
bags of popcorn will be sold between now and then.

4. Nonorganic Potatoes

The expert: Jeffrey Moyer, chair of the National Organic Standards

The problem: Root vegetables absorb herbicides, pesticides, and
fungicides that wind up in soil. In the case of potatoes—the nation's
most popular vegetable—they're treated with fungicides during the
growing season, then sprayed with herbicides to kill off the fibrous
vines before harvesting. After they're dug up, the potatoes are
treated yet again to prevent them from sprouting. "Try this
experiment: Buy a conventional potato in a store, and try to get it to
sprout. It won't," says Moyer, who is also farm director of the Rodale
Institute (also owned by Rodale Inc., the publisher of Prevention).
"I've talked with potato growers who say point-blank they would never
eat the potatoes they sell. They have separate plots where they grow
potatoes for themselves without all the chemicals."

5. Farmed Salmon

The expert: David Carpenter, MD, director of the Institute for Health
and the Environment at the University at Albany and publisher of a
major study in the journal Science on contamination in fish.

The problem: Nature didn't intend for salmon to be crammed into pens
and fed soy, poultry litter, and hydrolyzed chicken feathers. As a
result, farmed salmon is lower in vitamin D and higher in
contaminants, including carcinogens, PCBs, brominated flame
retardants, and pesticides such as dioxin and DDT. According to
Carpenter, the most contaminated fish come from Northern Europe, which
can be found on American menus. "You can only safely eat one of these
salmon dinners every 5 months without increasing your risk of cancer,"
says Carpenter, whose 2004 fish contamination study got broad media
attention. "It's that bad." Preliminary science has also linked DDT to
diabetes and obesity, but some nutritionists believe the benefits of
omega-3s outweigh the risks. There is also concern about the high
level of antibiotics and pesticides used to treat these fish. When you
eat farmed salmon, you get dosed with the same drugs and chemicals.

6. Milk Produced with Artificial Hormones

The expert: Rick North, project director of the Campaign for Safe Food
at the Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility and former CEO of
the Oregon division of the American Cancer Society

The problem: Milk producers treat their dairy cattle with recombinant
bovine growth hormone (rBGH or rBST, as it is also known) to boost
milk production. But rBGH also increases udder infections and even pus
in the milk. It also leads to higher levels of a hormone called
insulin-like growth factor in milk. In people, high levels of IGF-1
may contribute to breast, prostate, and colon cancers. "When the
government approved rBGH, it was thought that IGF-1 from milk would be
broken down in the human digestive tract," says North. As it turns
out, the casein in milk protects most of it, according to several
independent studies. "There's not 100% proof that this is increasing
cancer in humans," admits North. "However, it's banned in most
industrialized countries."

7. Conventional Apples

The expert: Mark Kastel, former executive for agribusiness and
codirector of the Cornucopia Institute, a farm-policy research group
that supports organic foods

The problem: If fall fruits held a "most doused in pesticides
contest," apples would win. Why? They are individually grafted
(descended from a single tree) so that each variety maintains its
distinctive flavor. As such, apples don't develop resistance to pests
and are sprayed frequently. The industry maintains that these residues
are not harmful. But Kastel counters that it's just common sense to
minimize exposure by avoiding the most doused produce, like apples.
"Farm workers have higher rates of many cancers," he says. And
increasing numbers of studies are starting to link a higher body
burden of pesticides (from all sources) with Parkinson's disease.

'Dr M, you killed democracy in Malaysia'
Nov 24, 09 7:47am'That is your legacy. You silenced the voices of
dissent in no uncertain terms. And in the end, the monsters your
created devoured you in the process.'

Dr M on democracy and sore losers:
Democracy is the best system for politics ever invented by man, according to former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Suhaimi Said: Dr Mahathir Mohamad, I remember you as a dictator.
Hundreds of people were detained under ISA during your rule. So don't
talk about democracy. I was a victim of your dictatorship.

Equaliser: Dr Mahathir, you killed democracy in Malaysia - that is
your legacy. We don't need people like you anymore in this blessed
country. You are a Malay nationalist, that's all. You didn't serve all
of Malaysia's people, which include the Chinese, Indians, and other
ethnic groups.

A statesman is one who has served his country's people well and
promoted democratic values and principles within government
institutions and society as whole. You silenced voices of dissent in
no uncertain terms. And in the end, the monsters you've created
devoured you in the process.

Yes, you created monsters greedy for money and power, and who were
willing to use any means necessary to acquire them. This country has
failed to serve all its people and continues to do so. You began the
trend of money politics and this is the result of your actions.

Just watch the news daily and you can see how lop-sided the coverage
is in favour of the ruling party, and this right in front of our very
own eyes. If only all Malaysians would open their eyes and ears to see
and listen, they would know what to do come the 13th general election.

Kris: It has been estimated that during Mahathir's premiership, the
amount of taxpayers' money allegedly misused by him and his cronies
was in the region of hundreds of billions. To carry out this, he
completely destroyed the judiciary and the enforcement agencies by
replacing the honest top officials in these agencies with tainted
officials who could be blackmailed into doing his bidding.

By having these people under his thumb and by controlling the media
and the civil service, he ensured that he literally had dictatorial
powers. To make sure that all the crooked deals that he made were not
known to the public, he enacted laws like the Official Secrets Act.

In short, he was a premier who manipulated the democratic system to
give himself dictatorial powers. That is why it is extremely
disgusting to hear this man pontificating on democracy or corruption.
Playfair: It is sad but not surprising that Dr Mahathir continues to
peddle half-truths to justify his opinions. He reduces democracy to a
one-dimensional event - elections - and fails to refer to other
equally important elements that constitute the package called

He speaks of "sore losers", but what about the 'tyranny of the
majority' (which he should be all too familiar with)? A system
cultivated and nourished through dubious means and made legal through
a two-thirds majority and then used to subvert national institutions
to do the bidding of the majority - sore losers are nothing compared
to this tyranny.

Asian values were promoted as an ideology to restrict mass political
participation, good governance, transparency and accountability. The
sacking of Anwar Ibrahim could not have been more un-Asian, not to
mention un-Islamic, un-Malay and un-Malaysian (if Umno will allow the
use of such a term).

Please keep speaking, sir, so that we can find out how you worked your
way to remain in power for so long.

TC88: Talk about sore losers. Mahathir is probably a hypocrite. When
Umno was declared illegal and Mahathir's position as its leader and
prime minister was sorely threatened, he sacked the then Lord
President and the five Supreme Court (now called the Federal Court)
judges when he knew the verdict was not going to be in his favour.

Dr Mahathir, you destroyed the very fabric of Malaysia's public
institutions, its constitution, the judiciary, the enforcement
agencies like the police, attorney-general, and the then ACA

This has been highlighted by Ku Li (Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah) in his
speeches. Please do the honourable thing and retire, and just keep
quiet like your anointed successor, Pak Lah (Abdullah Ahmad Badawi),
the Father of Malaysia's Conscience.

Mahathir acted wrongly, court told

KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad acted unconstitutionally when he
dismissed Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from his Cabinet posts and then
informed the King of the dismissal, the Federal Court heard.

Anwar’s lead counsel Karpal Singh submitted that the former premier’s
action had contravened the provisions of Article 43 (5) of the Federal
Constitution, which provides that the appointment of any minister may
be revoked by the King on the advice of the Prime Minister.

Karpal said there was misdirection in law which should be corrected by
the court.

“This is a very serious matter. It deprived Anwar of his rights of
being Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister. It is an abuse of

“If the Prime Minister did not give advice to the King, he is acting
unconstitutionally. It is as simple as that,” he said.

Furthermore, Karpal said Dr Mahathir had confirmed to the Dewan Rakyat
sitting on Oct 23, 1998 that he had conveyed his decision to sack
Anwar from his Cabinet posts to the King.

“This is so obvious for your lordships to allow this appeal without
any hesitation. There must be a judicial honesty in the courts in this
country,” he said.

The apex court had on June 16 last year granted leave for Anwar to
challenge his sacking as DPM and Finance Minister on Sept 2, 1998.

Anwar is asking for a declaration that the Prime Minister had acted in
contravention of the provisions of Article 43(5) when purporting to
dismiss him as Minister from the Cabinet.

Anwar, who filed an originating summons on Nov 13, 1998, is asking for
a declaration that his dismissal as minister in the Malaysian Cabinet
is null and void, inconsequential and of no effect.

The Court of Appeal had on April 25, 2007 held that the sacking of
Anwar from his Cabinet posts in 1998 by Dr Mahathir was lawful.

The High Court had on Dec 23, 1998 struck out Anwar’s civil action for
an order that his dismissal from the Cabinet was unlawful.

Court of Appeal president Justice Alauddin Mohd Sheriff, who sat
together with Federal Court judges Justice Ghazali Mohd Yusof and
Justice Abdull Hamid Embong, said the court would deliver its ruling
on a date to be fixed.

Goldman gets Malaysian fund mgt and advisory licences

* The award of licences comes after PM's reform measures (Updates with
analyst comments, details from SC statement)

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 8 (Reuters) - Malaysia has given U.S. investment
bank Goldman Sachs (GS.N) licences to set up fund management and
advisory operations in the country, as the Southeast Asia nation
competes for foreign investments.

The licences were given as part of the liberalisation measures
announced by Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier this year, the
country's securities regulator, Securities Commission Malaysia SC,
said in a statement on Tuesday.

Goldman Sachs' entry "demonstrates the group's confidence in the
growth opportunities available in the Malaysian capital market," said
the SC.

Other global financial companies such as JPMorgan (JPM.N) and Credit
Suisse (CSGN.VX) already operate in Malaysia.

The growing presence of global players such as Goldman Sachs "will
boost the long-term viability of the market and draw in fresh funds,"
Kaladher Govindan, head of research at Kuala Lumpur-based TA
Securities, told Reuters by telephone.

The outlook for the Malaysian capital markets and its fund management
industry was "very positive," said Tim Leissner, co-President of
Southeast Asia for Goldman Sachs.

"We look forward to playing a larger role in their development,"
Leissner said in the SC statement.

Malaysia in June unveiled a raft of measures to boost investment in
the slumping economy and lift a laggard stock market, including
waiving the condition that local companies should reserve 30 percent
of any post-IPO share sale to Malay investors. [ID:nKLR467124]

Corporate activity in Malaysia is expected to rise next year and

Malaysia this year saw Southeast Asia's biggest ever IPO after the

Mahathir squandered RM100 bil, says new book

From Malaysiakini

Malaysia has squandered an estimated RM100 billion on financial
scandals under the 22-year rule of Dr Mahathir Mohamad, according to a
new book about the former prime minister.

According to Barry Wain, author of the soon-to-be launched ‘Malaysian
Maverick: Mahathir Mohamad in Turbulent Times’, direct financial
losses amounted to about RM50 billion.

This doubled once the invisible costs, such as unrecorded write-offs,
were taken into account. The RM100 billion total loss was equivalent
to US$40 billion at then prevailing exchange rates.

Barry, who is a former editor of the Asian Wall Street Journal, says
most of the scams, which included a government attempt to manipulate
the international tin price and gambling by Bank Negara on global
currency markets, occurred in the 1980s.

‘Malaysian Maverick’ is the first independent, full-length study of
Mahathir, who retired in 2003 after more than two decades as premier.
The book will be published globally next week by Palgrave Macmillan.

Wain writes that the Mahathir administration, which took office in
1981 with the slogan, “clean, efficient, trustworthy”, was almost
immediately embroiled in financial scandals that “exploded with
startling regularity”.

By the early 1990s, he says, cynics remarked that it had been “a good
decade for bad behaviour, or a bad decade for good behaviour”.

Secret military deal with US

The book also reveals that:

Mahathir, despite his nationalistic rants, signed a secret security
agreement with the United States in 1984 that gave the Americans
access to a jungle warfare training school in Johor and allowed them
to set up a small-ship repair facility at Lumut and a plant in Kuala
Lumpur to repair C-130 Hercules transport aircraft.
Mahathir used a secret fund of his ruling Umno to turn the party into
a vast conglomerate with investments that spanned almost the entire
Mahathir’s Umno financed its new Putra World Trade Centre headquarters
in Kuala Lumpur partly with taxpayers money, by forcing state-owned
banks to write off at least RM140 million in interest on Umno loans.
Wain, who is now a writer-in-residence at the Institute of Southeast
Asian Studies in Singapore, however credits Mahathir with engineering
the country’s economic transformation, deepening industrialisation and
expanding Malaysia’s middle class.

But Mahathir had undermined state institutions, permitted the spread
of corruption and failed to provide for Malaysia’s future leadership,
he says.

Just look at the facts.
He is an ethnic Indian. Biologically he is an Indian. Can he deny
that? But he is going around claiming to be more Malay than Malay.
Why? Because the Malaysian Constitution classifies him as Malay. How
Now look at his name. I have done some research and found that it is
Maha = Great; Thir = short form of "theeran" = warrior.
So Mahathir means Great Warrior in Sanskrit. Hence, basically Indians
are ruling Malaysia. And the Malays are not even aware of it.
So Mahathir is not a racist. An Indian cannot be a Malay racist. So
what is he?

Hey, aneh, shaft it up your arse and keep it and your arse together in
Malaysia. We here in Singapore have had our fair share of Indians
crying buckets about discrimination against them. In truth, they are
snaky racists who do not accept Chinese majority rule and try ways and
means to increase their proportion in the population. As a result, the
number of Indians here are increasing exponentially, without any end
in sight.

Najib to reveal new MCA peace plan

"saki seto" <> wrote in message

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 30 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak will reveal a new peace
plan for the crisis-ridden MCA upon his return from abroad, his deputy
has said today.

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who met MCA leaders last night, said the new
peace plan will help the Chinese party out of the leadership crisis.

The prime minister is currently attending the Commonwealth Heads of
Government Meeting (CHOGM) 2009 in Port of Spain and is scheduled to
return tomorrow.

“I will brief him on the outcome and I saw there was a strong
commitment from almost all the (MCA) leaders that I met to resolve the
political crisis,” Muhyiddin told a press conference here.

“I made some proposals and almost everything was accepted, but
whatever it is, the final decision will be announced after the prime
minister has studied the plan,” he added.

Last night senior MCA leaders met Muhyiddin for almost three hours at
his private residence to draw up a new peace plan.

Present were MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek,
secretary-general Datuk Wong Foon Meng, and all four vice-presidents
Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha, Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen, Tan Kok Hong and
Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat did not attend the meeting as he
was unwell.

Last week, Muhyiddin was tasked by prime minister to find a solution
to the MCA crisis.

Muhyiddin had said that he would make, finding a solution to the MCA
crisis, part of his key performance index (KPI) and hoped that he
could find a solution to resolve the crisis by the end of this month.

The MCA crisis has become a major concern for the Barisan Nasional
(BN) leadership as it fears the problem could jeopardise Chinese
support for the ruling coalition.

MCA plunged deeper into a leadership crisis after the Oct 10
extraordinary general meeting (EGM) which later saw it split into two
major factions — one headed by Ong and the other led by Liow — after
Ong and Dr Chua reconciled.

The situation worsened after Ong sacked Wanita chief Datin Paduka Chew
Mei Fun and Youth chief Datuk Wee Ka Siong from the presidential

Liow’s faction, at a gathering last Saturday, had passed the
declaration, called “Declaration 1128”, pushing for the party
leadership to hold a fresh election at the central committee level
within 60 days.

The declaration was dismissed by Ong, who argued that it needs to be
supported by the majority of the central committee members.

90% of Msians don't use condoms

GEORGE TOWN, MALAYSIA - Some 90% do not use condoms and this is a
source of worry because it can contribute to the rise of HIV/AIDS
cases, said social activist Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir.

Marina, an Asia Pacific Leadership Forum on HIV/AIDS steering
committee member, said drug users continued to neglect the use of
condoms despite the contraceptives being distributed for free by some
non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

"Condoms are 98% safe and it can present an affordable way to combat
the spread of the disease," she told reporters yesterday after the
opening of the World HIV/AIDS Day national conference.

The two-day conference was launched by Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow
Tiong Lai.

Marina said 24-hour convenience stores should be allowed to sell
condoms off-the-shelf although some state governments were against it.

Malaysian AIDS Council vice-president Datuk Zaman Khan said the
distribution of free condoms did not mean that NGOs were encouraging
free sex.

In his speech, Liow said the country was on track towards achieving
the United Nations Millennium Development Goal of halting and
reversing the spread of HIV by 2015.

He said the disease remained a potent threat because of the increasing
infection through sex and more women were becoming infected.

Liow said the notification rate of HIV/AIDS in the country had
continued to fall each year after it peaked at 6,978 cases or 28.5%
per 100,000 population in 2002.

Last year, it was 13.3% per 100,000 population and this year
indication shows that it may drop to 11% per 100,000.

"I am optimistic that the country can arrest the spread of HIV/AIDS by
2015 based on current trends," he said.

I thought Shaariibuu had withdrawn the suit against Najib. There is every
likelihood the case will be thrown out of the Malaysian court if it ever is
heard in Malaysia and if even so it may take a century before court
appearances take place.
The other alternative is to charge him at the International Court in Dhaig.
Of course Najib may just refuse to appear for the trial. Ini sangat susah.
Kapal tolong lah jangan lagi taroh.
It is the job of the police to take up the case in the public interest and
thus allow Najib to clear his name if he is not guilty. If Rosmah need to be
charged, so be it. Justice must be seen to be done. Rosmah will have a
chance to clear her name too. What is so frightening for both of them?

Serious? Well it looks more like State Religious Affairs Committee Chairman is having unstoppable diarrhea over the problem he is in. I guess they know that the whole world is watching and ready to jump on Datuk Mohamad Sahfri Ab Aziz, who then will be responsible for putting Malaysia on World News again. So now Datuk is buying time with this and that perhaps hoping the matter can be swept under the carpet with just a fine of RM 2,000.

As for Kartika, she has nothing to lose, one smart and brave women, turning away peoples request to appeal. She can write a book about her ordeal and it will become an international best seller.

CPI shows Malaysia is more corrupted than before

Corrupt Perception Index (CPI)
Posted by: rahumat

Malaysia slipped from 47 out of 180 to 56th amongst the countries survey. Something Malaysians should not be proud off. But appears like no one is taking this seriously. Year in year our our Auditor Generals come with discrepancies in the government accounts. There will be a big hue and cry for a whilst and it will die off as fast as it was brought to light. This year suddently our PM came up with plans. But what are plans when we know from history there are just something well known that the issue will be swept below the carpet soon. This year even the TI-M or Transparency International seem to be taking a back seat. Its president Datuk Paul Low said ".. has acknowledged Malaysia efforts to deal with coruption, although the CPI this year has declined"... The Star Wedneday 18th Nov 2009.

Looks like we Malaysians live with the fact that "its OK to be currupted" or probably 56 is not so bad anyway. In a recent survey done by the Merdeka Center for Opinion Research, the people in Malaysia ranked 7th in order of importance, cited economic situtation as the 1st. There was a recent article in the papers where survey amounst university students show that 30 % tolerate corruption. So the people are not serious about corruption, the government is not serious. Apparently only some political parties bring up the issues. Even then in some states it appear like some nit picking on small issues when the PKFZ appear to be a "not so serious issue". I think we should all wake up before the whole nations goes to the dogs. Political reform itself is not good enough. The government should be sincere.

We should emulate some nations who have transparent procurement and cotract system which are available in the internet. Our leaders must be bold to take action against wrong doers. If our PM makes a statement on the Auditor Generals report that we may not charge all in the court......" What type of departmental action would they do; transfer a officers who "stole" millions of ringgit worth of drugs in police custody; or do nothing when an officer was responsible for land mismanagement. If appears that "we sympathise with them, we do not want them to lose their pension, etc". So every government servant knows that unless he is charged in court, he can retire peacefully even if he has amassed millions of ringgit belonging to the rakyat. The answer to fight corruption is simple; heads must role; mismanagement must be eradicated; we should start the clean up right from the top. Several nations have done this successfully.

Any department head who cannot fulfill the KPI should be terminated not transfered.. There must be departmental regulations to deal with corruption; not wait to charge in court. Even in court, the inefficiency of the investigators have literally "thrown many cases out of the windows". Its simple - get a good lawyer - find a loop hole and you emerge as a hero. When are we going to stop this. What are we waiting for? If we want to reduce street crimes by 20%, we should also have a KPI to reduce our CPI too.

Police killed 5 Indian men - then claimed they are criminals

IGP must act to restore confidence

The recent police shoot out in Klang that killed five suspected criminals is regrettable and deeply disturbing.

Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Musa Hassan righty said that the responsibility of the police is to protect and rescue law-abiding citizens, and not to protect criminals who kill to escape arrest. It is clearly within the right of the police to act in self-defense and protect the lives of innocent by-standers. If the police really acted in self defense as he claims, then there is absolutely no reason to question them for their actions. However if otherwise,as claimed by many, then we have some serious problems to address as we had lost five young Malaysians at the prime of their lives who were yet to be proven to be criminals.

The IGP strongly denied all allegations by various quarters including some members of parliament that the police was trigger happy and only targeted the Indian community. These are serious allegations that have instilled fear and anxiety in the minds of the vast majority of the Indian parents regarding the safety of their children who are decent law abiding citizens.As Indian parents we fear the safety of our young children when they are out with their friends even for healthy activities.

While the IGP’s reassurances are welcome he must do more to allay the fears among the people as a number of questions remains unanswered regarding the recent shooting in Klang where five suspected criminals were shot dead by the police.So far we only have the police side of the story which the people are not willing to believe as result of past experiences.

This is not the first time for such a controversial police action. A number of similar shooting incidences before were ignored despite calls for thorough investigation. This has created a negative public perception of the police. These perceptions may be wrong but the onus is on the IGP and the police to correct it with some urgency as the fear among the people for their safety in genuine.

The shooting must not be made into a racial issue as that will only lead to cover up and pushing the problem under the carpet. Instead it questions the professionalism of our police force and the IGP and the government should act to prove that the assault on the alleged robbers was in accordance with the set laws governing such operations. They must ensure that all rules were followed and all precautions taken to avoid unnecessary deaths.

Was indiscriminate force used by the police? What was the evidence to indicate that the suspects were the real criminals? Did the suspected criminals open fire at the police? These are the questions that need to be answered. This can only be done by a professional and unbiased investigation into the incident to reveal the truth.

Only by doing so can the allegations against the police be proven false and the negative image erased from the minds of the people at large. There have been too many such incidences that brings into question the reputation and integrity of our police which was held in high esteem. The IGP and the government must take this opportunity to restore the confidence of the rakyat on the police force as the true guardian of their safety.
