DAP MP raps Umno cops for ‘intimidating’ critics

DAP Bukit Bendera MP Liew Chin Tong today lambasted the police for using laws such as the Sedition Act and the Communications and Multimedia Act in an effort to quell dissenting views expressed by the public.

Citing DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng's recent case where he is being investigated under the Sedition Act as an example, Liew said the police action was "deplorable".

"Police investigations of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng over his statement on the death of Teoh Beng Hock and the subsequent police action to interrogate DAP Selangor chairman and Selangor State Exco member Ean Yong Hian Wah over his statement on the probe on Guan Eng are most deplorable," said the Bukit Bendera MP in a statement.

The police force which has been seen as influenced and directed by Umno is threatening the democratic process of our nation and if they left unchecked could lead to the establishment of an Umno dictatorship and a police state in near future.

Is it wrong for Guan Eng and Ean Yong to express their wish to bring justice to Beng Hock? Is it wrong for Guan Eng and Ean Yong to support the call to expedite on Beng Hock's death at the Selangor MACC headquarters? Is the police helping MACC to cover-up the murder by trying to delay the investigation and magistrate's inquest?

In this case, we wish to repeat our call to have the Independent Police Complaints and Misconducts Commission (IPCMC) established as soon as possible in order to curb the power abuses and mismanagement in the police force.

If IPCMC cannot reform the police force, we suggest Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) to be dissolved and replace with a new entity call Public Security Force (PSF).

Theft on jet engines a shame to our nation

A widening scandal over the theft of two jet engines by senior military personnel has exposed serious lapses in Malaysia’s security establishment.

It has also raised concerns that the country is emerging as a hub for the trade of illicit military-related equipment to countries declared as rogue nations by the United States and its allies.

Over the past week, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his Cabinet colleagues have scrambled to defend embarrassing revelations that two F5-E jet engines from the Royal Malaysian Air Force and other sensitive military equipment were smuggled out of a high-security airbase and moved by a cargo plane out of the country.

The Umno-led BN federal government had lead Malaysia into a most embarassing episode in our nation's history. It is believed that if the Pakatan Rakyat were to wrest control over Putrajaya in the next general elections, more scandals and government mismanagement will be uncovered and exposed to the public.

And this is what Umno is fearing off, therefore giving only limited coverage on this scandal to the press by promising no "cover up" but in fact it has already been cover up earlier. That is why it was only reported today, when those people committed the treason in 2007.

Congratulations Najib, Umno and BN. You won yourself another disgrace.

Umno cops to probe Guan Eng for saying Beng Hock was murdered

The Umno controlled police have initiated a sedition investigation against Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng for suggesting Teoh Beng Hock was murdered, in a move that will fuel the controversy surrounding the DAP aide's death.

Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said today that Lim who is also the DAP secretary-general, was not facing immediate arrest, but would have his statement recorded. Khalid said Lim was being investigated over his speech made at the inaugural Pakatan Rakyat (PR) convention last Saturday in Shah Alam.

We would like to as the Umno influenced police force, in what way was Guan Eng instigating public disorder by mentioning that Beng Hock was murdered? Kindly explained and elaborate further to the people.

What about yourself being influenced and controlled by the supremacist Umno who are out to bring down Pakatan Rakyat leaders for a number of "alleged law breaking"? What about your power abuses and all those inhuman treatments which you carried out on our people? How did you simply detain innocent people in order to protect some racist leaders who are still out there threatening the unity and the peace of our nation? How are you going to answer all these?

What Guan Eng said was correct. "Teoh Beng Hock had been cruelly murdered. I want to remind those responsible that we will not forget you because there is no forgiveness for you."

We fully support this statement made by Guan Eng. We also call for an immediate establishment of the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) in order to fully scrutinise the entire police force.

Hishamuddin suffering from brain damage

The home minister and Umno vice president Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein might be suffering from a severe brain damage and he must seek help to cure his sickness.

Why did we say that? Because he said the bloggers are unethical and that means Utusan Malaysia is doing a great job! This shows that he didn't know what he himself is talking about. He is out of his mind.

Right now, as everyone is aware, Utusan Malaysia is actively promoting hatred, racial divide and trying to create political unrest in our nation by putting up racist articles in their newspaper. First they wanted 13 May to repeat, then they insulted the Chinese and now they said the Indians are rough guys.

And just because Utusan Malaysia is Umno's wholly-owned, the home minister supported their move and condemned the bloggers instead because the truth were being widely reported in public.

Until now, no action was taken against Utusan Malaysia for its racist and hate messages which were published regularly. Whereas when the bloggers are trying to report and spread the truth and to correct the inaccurate, they were harrassed by the police special branch and threatened with imprisonment.

This is undemocratic and dictatorial. Can we trust this federal government again?

Banning Christians from using the word ‘Allah’ unconstitutional, court told

Yes, such ban is very very unconstitutional. Unconsitutional that it is already against the basic human rights enshrined in our Federal Constitution.

Article 3 (1) maintained that Islam the official religion of this country and other religions are also permited to be practiced freely in this country. Article 11 (3) (a) stated that every religion in this country has every right to manage its own religious affairs, while Article 10 (1) (a) guarantees our freedom of speech and Article 8 (1) recognise the equality of every citizens in this country.

The word "Allah" is universal and it does not belongs to any particular religion. In the Northern Borneo states of Sabah and Sarawak, the natives who embraced Christianity since birth use the word "Allah" in their Malay language bible in their church services.

In Indonesia, Indonesian Christians are allowed to have the word "Allah" used in their Malay language bibles and printing as well as publishing of these texts are even allowed.

Even PAS Spiritual Advisor and Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat openly agreed that the word "Allah" should not be monopolised only in the name of Islam. The word "Allah" is arabic and it is a direct translation from the word God.

Islam is originated from the Arab continent and it does not mean one who is a non-Muslim cannot learn to read and write arabic. Arabic is a language, not a religion.

Therefore, Umno, BN, their federal government and the home ministry in particular, please accept the facts and not making a fool of yourselves in the eyes of the international community.

There is no point for you to uphold your supremacist ideas in such way.
