MH17: Chaos in Malaysian Parliament over tweet accusing PM Najib of BRIBING SEPARATISTS

MH17: Chaos in M'sian Parliament over tweet accusing PM Najib of BRIBING SEPARATISTS
Pandemonium erupts in the House after Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Wee Ka Siong accuses PKR's Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli of posting a tweet warning the government "not to use people's money to bribe separatists".
Rafizi and Pakatan Rakyat MPs are enraged by the accusation.
Rafizi says the tweet is fake and he planned to lodge a police report on the matter.
Wee refuses to apologise and declines to retract his accusation, escalating the tension.
In his speech, Wee continuously takes jibes at opposition members for "trying to find fault" with MAS and the government's conduct in light of the tragedy.
He criticises Tanjong MP Ng Wei Aik for "not advising his partner", referring to a tweet by Ng's wife Yuki Tan criticising Malaysia on the MH17 incident.
Wee also trains his guns on DAP's Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming for questioning the air route.
Infuriated, Pakatan members press deputy speaker Ronald Kiandee to demand the MCA deputy president retracts the remark.
However, Ronald refuses to order Wee to retract the remark, saying Rafizi's explanation has already been recorded. - Mkini

Polis buru lelaki pukul remaja kerana mencuri

Padah 'naik angin' di tempat awam, lagi kes pukul tersebar di laman sosial.
Picture 8KUALA LUMPUR: Pihak polis kini sedang memburu seorang lelaki yang telah membelasah seorang remaja yang ditangkap kerana mencuri berdasarkan rakaman video yang tersebar menerusi laman sosial sejak beberapa hari yang lalu.
Menurut Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, insiden yang berlaku pada September 2013 itu adalah sama sekali tidak wajar dan kertas siasatan kini dibuka.
“Tangkapan awam boleh dilakukan di bawah prosedur kanun acara jenayah, namun pesalah tidak boleh diperlakukan sebegitu, kena serah kepada polis,” katanya
Menurutnya, orang ramai yang mempunyai sebarang maklumat mengenai lelaki berkenaan diminta tampil untuk membantu siasatan agar polis dapat menjejakinya.
Rakaman video selama satu minit empat saat itu menunjukkan seorang lelaki bertindak menendang seorang remaja di bahagian muka kerana tidak berpuas hati terhadap remaja berkenaan.
Ini menimbulkan reaksi negatif dari orang ramai apabila video itu tersebar di laman-laman sosial.

SELANGOR’S WATERGATE ABOUT TO EXPLODE

mt2014-corridors-of-power
Anwar brought Wan Azmi to meet Khalid to try to resolve this matter. Anwar supports the RM2.5 billion claim but Khalid is stubbornly sticking to the figure of RM250 million. And this is why Anwar is mad as hell and wants Khalid out. And this is also why Rafizi said today that once Dr Wan Azizah takes over as Menteri Besar they are going to review the water agreements.
THE CORRIDORS OF POWER
Raja Petra Kamarudin
It would not surprise me one bit if Selangor Darul Ehsan were mistaken for Selangor Darul Keliru. Over the last few weeks, in particular these last few days, various parties, the Palace included, have issued statement after statement that contradict one another.
The latest press statement today (and not the only one today, mind you), co-signed by Anwar Ibrahim (thede facto leader of PKR), Mohamad Sabu (the Deputy President of PAS), and Lim Guan Eng (the Secretary-General of DAP), says as follows:
Majlis Pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat yang bermesyuarat hari ini 23 Julai 2014 telah menerima cadangan daripada KEADILAN untuk membuat pertukaran Menteri Besar di Selangor seterusnya mencalonkan Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.
Parti DAP dan PAS akan membawa perkara ini ke dalam mesyuarat peringkat tertinggi parti masing-masing dan akan membuat keputusan dalam masa terdekat.
DAP dan PAS secara dasarnya menghormati prinsip pencalonan jawatan Menteri Besar Selangor adalah daripada KEADILAN.
Basically, it says that DAP and PAS accept in principle that the nomination of the Menteri Besar of Selangor must come from PKR. In other words, PKR decides who should be the Menteri Besar.
The statement further says that Pakatan Rakyat accepts (but not agree to) the proposal from PKR that the Menteri Besar, Khalid Ibrahim, must be replaced with Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and that DAP and PAS will bring this matter to their respective parties and will make a decision (whether they agree to the proposal) in the near future.
PKR, in its meeting two days ago, has already approved the proposal. DAP and PAS will now also need to hold their meetings to decide on the same.
This more or less gives us an impression that it is a fait accompli and that the DAP and PAS meetings to also approve the removal of Khalid and to replace him with Dr Wan Azizah is a mere formality to officially approve what has already been unofficially approved.
In other words, Khalid is dead-meat and they now only need to officially pronounce him dead and issue his death certificate.
I received a few messages from various sources that said Khalid is finished and that he is currently just on life support and all they need to do now is to switch off the machine and send Khalid to the morgue.
I am not sure it is that simple and whether it is, as most people seem to believe, already a fait accompli. After all, as they say, a politician is not really dead until they bury him in his grave (Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad being one example). There are still various hurdles they need to clear and there are still moves Khalid can make to frustrate Anwar’s game-plan.
We have already discussed the various hurdles they still need to overcome plus the moves still open to Khalid so we do not need to repeat all that. The point I am trying to make here is that the impression they are giving us is that this matter is already final.
In reality it is not yet final. There are still a few laps left to this race and Khalid is still very much in the race. So we are not quite sure at this point who will be the one to cross the finish line to claim the chequered flag.
Well, they do say in America that the show is not over till the fat lady sings and I am yet to hear any fat lady singing.
Selangor’s Watergate
Why the urgency to remove Khalid? Most think it is because Anwar’s sodomy trial will soon be decided so he needs to settle this matter before then. But what has the sodomy trial got to do with appointing Dr Wan Azizah as the new Menteri Besar of Selangor? Is that going to influence the decision of the court?
Actually this has nothing to do with the sodomy trial. It is more about the water agreements. Selangor is about to settle the water agreements with the federal government and Anwar wants Khalid out before that so that he can scuttle the deal.
And this was confirmed today by no less than PKR’s political strategist Rafizi Ramli himself (READ HERE).
Perangsang (the Selangor State Agency) owns 30% of Splash (Syarikat Pengeluar Air Sungai Selangor Sdn Bhd) while Tan Sri Wan Azmi Wan Hamzah (a Tun Daim Zainuddin protégé) owns 30% and Gamuda Berhad (a conglomerate linked to a certain Royal Family) owns 40%.
Wan Azmi wants Selangor to buy over Splash for RM2.5 billion but its real value is only RM250 million, which is what Selangor is going to pay. Hence it is RM2.25 billion short of what Wan Azmi wants.
Anwar brought Wan Azmi to meet Khalid to try to resolve this matter. Anwar supports the RM2.5 billion claim but Khalid is stubbornly sticking to the figure of RM250 million. And this is why Anwar is mad as hell and wants Khalid out. And this is also why Rafizi said today that once Dr Wan Azizah takes over as Menteri Besar they are going to review the water agreements.
The billion-ringgit question is if they review the water agreements once Dr Wan Azizah takes over how much from that extra RM2.25 billion is going to end up as ‘under-the-table’ money and who are going to be the recipients of these kickbacks?
Do I see a Selangor Watergate looming over the horizon? Or is it going to be a Rafizigate? I suppose we can say there are 2.5 billion reasons why Khalid Ibrahim has to go. And it all has to do with the price Selangor is going to pay for the water concessionaire.

Baju tulisan ayat al Quran: Jangan cepat menghukum, kata bekas mufti

 Bekas Mufti Perlis Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin berkata mereka yang tersalah menggunakan ayat al-Quran mungkin tidak bermaksud menghina agama, namun ia berlak‎u kerana kurangnya pemahaman tentang Islam. – Gambar fail The Malaysian Insider, 23 Julai, 2014.  Bekas Mufti Perlis Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin berkata mereka yang tersalah menggunakan ayat al-Quran mungkin tidak bermaksud menghina agama, namun ia berlak‎u kerana kurangnya pemahaman tentang Islam. – Gambar fail The Malaysian Insider, 23 Julai, 2014. 
Meskipun menjadi kesalahan bagi seseorang memakai pakaian tertulis ayat al Quran, masyarakat negara ini tidak boleh terlalu cepat menghukum, kata bekas Mufti Perlis Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin.
Apatah lagi menganggap individu tersebut sebagai musuh Islam tanpa menyelidik latar belakangnya terlebih dahulu.
Katanya, mereka yang tersalah menggunakan ayat al-Quran mungkin tidak bermaksud menghina agama, namun ia berlak‎u kerana kurangnya pemahaman tentang Islam.
"Mereka ‎ mungkin tidak bermaksud untuk menghina tapi tidak tahu adab-adab sewajarnya," katanya dipetik dalam laman Facebook DrMaza.com hari ini.
Bekas mufti itu menulis status berkenaan dipercayai mengulas mengenai penyebaran gambar wanita pertengahan umur memakai baju yang mempunyai tulisan ayat al Quran pada minggu lalu.
Turut tersebar sekeping lagi gambar menunjukkan seorang lelaki berbaju kurta putih mengangkat jari telunjuk kanan seolah-olah memberi amaran kepada wanita berkenaan sambil diperhatikan pekerja pasaraya berkenaan.
Ahad lalu, Ketua Polis Negara Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar mengesahkan pihaknya mula menyiasat kes seorang wanita itu yang gambarnya tersebar luas di media sosial sejak semalam.
Khalid berkata, hasil siasatan awal mendapati wanita itu warga Korea yang baru tiba di Malaysia dan memakai pakaian yang dibelinya di India.
“@PDRMsia sudah mula siasat kes ‘makcik’ tu.  Dia Korean, baru sampai sini, beli baju tu di India. Biar kita siasat lanjut. Semua bersabarlah,” katanya melalui akaun Twitter miliknya @KBAB51.
Selain itu, Mohd Asri juga menggesa masyarakat Islam di negara ini agar bertindak matang selain tidak terus menghukum tanpa mengetahui latar belakang sesuatu perkara.
"Dalam hidup ini kita hendaklah membezakan antara tindakan seseorang yang bertitik-tolak daripada permusuhan, dengan tindakan seseorang disebabkan kesilapan atau salah faham.
"Justeru, sebelum menghukum kita hendaklah tahu latar belakang tindakan mereka, berbicara dengan matang sebelum bertindak kasar menghukum," katanya.

IGP: Don't compare Kiki, youth-kicking videos


Police have cautioned the public against accusing it of favouritism by questioning its actions in three cases involving the social media.

Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said that those who make comparisons between the three cases imply that police favour certain races, but in fact, the cases differ due to technicalities of investigations.

“In the case of Siti Fairrah Ashykin Kamaruddin the investigation was swift as she had given full cooperation, surrendered and pleaded guilty.

“In the case of Muhammad Zahier Afiq Zarol Nizam, the man recorded kicking him has yet to come forward to assist and police are asking anyone who has information to assist in order to sped up the matter.

“As for Alvin Tan’s case, investigations have led to a court case which is still pending. Clearly police perform its duties according to procedures and the law, not selectively according to race or religion,” he said in a statement.

Siti Fairrah Ashykin was yesterday sentenced to RM5,000 fine and 240 hours of community service following a viral video of her hitting the car of senior citizen Sim Siak Hong, 68, with a steering lock after a fender bender.

Following the conviction, netizens have shared a 2013 viral video of Muhammad Zahier Afiq repeatedly kicked in the face by a Chinese man, and questioned why police are not acting against the man.

Careful what you share

Others have also disseminated a “collection” of videos uploaded onto the internet of ethnic Chinese men arguing with police to get out of a traffic fine, purportedly to show that Chinese people get away scot-free.

Alvin Tan (right) and his girlfriend Vivian Lee were charged with sedition for making a Facebook posting about breaking fast with a pork dish, which was accused of being insulting to Muslims.

Meanwhile, Khalid also advised netizens to be careful in their interactions as there are law against disseminating false information.

He said that those spreading false information can be jailed for no more than one year or fined up to RM50, 000 or both under the Multimedia and Communications Act, while seditious postings can send someone to jail for up to three years or fined up to RM5,000 or both, for the first offence.

“Internet users must be wise in reviewing the information they receive and not be too excited to share it with a third party, as such sensitive issues can undermine racial harmony, public order and national safety.”

DPM: Separatists didn't ask anything in return


Ukrainian separatists did not ask for any favour in return for allowing the remains of MH17 victims and the black boxes to be recovered.

Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said there was "no extra deal whatsoever", apart from three main agreements that were outlined by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak during his press conference yesterday.

Muhyiddin said this when wrapping up the debate on the special motion to condemn the attack on MH17 during an emergency sitting of Parliament today.

After Najib had struck a deal with the separatist leader Alexander Borodai, there were questions as to what Malaysia had promised in return.

Muhyiddin also said there would be no special treatment for the separatists if it is proven that they shot down the plane.

"We do not offer forgiveness for anyone if they are proven to be guilty. This will not become a restriction for us to take action," he added.
