1. The course of justice must be a swift one. After months of internal investigation and intense public discourse, I am relieved that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has decided to take action against the Chief Minister of Penang, YAB Lim Guan Eng.

2. I raised the concern over the sale and  purchase of YAB Lim Guan Eng’s bungalow at Jalan Pinhorn in March 2016, because I believed there are wrongdoings within the transaction and the people of Penang deserve nothing but the truth.

3. Clearly, DAP’s slogan of being the most clean political party in Malaysia does not hold water, post Lim Guan Eng’s arrest by MACC today. Transparency and accountability must be practiced, not preached.

4. It is my hope that the MACC will carry out their duty without fear and favour like they always do. And eventually this will bring us the truth and justice.

1. Tindakan menegakkan keadilan mesti dilakukan dengan pantas. Sebulan selepas siasatan dalaman dan perbincangan secara terbuka yang tegang, saya berasa lega apabila Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) memutuskan untuk mengambil tindakan kepada Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang, YAB Lim Guan Eng.

2.      Saya membangkitkan kebimbangan berhubung penjualan dan pembelian banglo YAB  Lim Guan Eng di Jalan Pinhorn pada Mac 2016, kerana saya yakin berlaku salah laku dalam transaksi dan rakyat Pulau Pinang berhak mengetahui kebenaran.

3. Jelas sekali, slogan DAP kononnya menjadi parti politik paling bersih di Malaysia tidak boleh lagi diguna pakai, susulan penahanan Lim Guan Eng oleh SPRM hari ini. Ketelusan dan kebertanggungjawab mesti diamalkan, bukan sekadar diperkatakan.

4. Saya berharap SPRM akan meneruskan kelazimannya dalam menjalankan tugas tanpa kebimbangan atau pilih kasih. Pada akhirnya, semua ini diharap membawa kebenaran dan keadilan.



Two foreigners linked to 14 robberies shot dead.

TANJUNG MALIM: A gunman who fired at several policemen and his accomplice who lunged at them with a curved machete were shot dead in Jalan Proton City-Behrang Ulu here early today.

Initial investigations revealed the foreigners were linked to 14 robbery cases in Perak, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan over the past year.

Perak Police Chief Abdul Rahim Hanafi said police were left with little choice but to defend themselves as they returned fire, killing the thugs in the incident about 5.30am.

He said one of the police vehicles was fired upon but none of the policemen were injured.

Seized from the robbers’ Proton Waja was a semi-automatic Beretta pistol loaded with two bullets and four magazines. The car was stolen in Kelana Jaya in 2013.

“Also seized from the car were three machetes, three vehicle registration plates, a Samsung tablet and an assortment of jewellery,” Abdul Rahim told a press conference at the Muallim police headquarters here today.

He believed the dead robbers, in their 40s, who did not have identification documents on them, were foreigners as they bore no BCG vaccination marks.

Earlier, a team from the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman and the Perak CID spotted two men in a Proton Waja in Jalan Uli Slim.

Abdul Rahim said police identified themselves but the driver of the car sped off before the vehicle was intercepted and the duo detained.

He said it was at that juncture that the two men attacked the police before they were gunned down, adding that two of their accomplices were still at large.

Kuala Kangsar win extraordinary, sweetest victory

Menteri Besar Perak Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir today described the Barisan Nasional (BN) victory in the Kuala Kangsar parliamentary by-election yesterday as an extraordinary and the sweetest victory in this blessed month of Ramadan.

“Certain quarters anticipated that it would be difficult for BN as the candidate (Datin Mastura Mohd Yazid) is not allowed to leave the house (as she was under ‘iddah’ for four months and 10 days, as stipulated in Islamic law, following the death of her husband).

“But, Alhamdulillah, the voters in Kuala Kangsar still gave their mandate to BN candidate,” Dr Zambry said after presenting Aidilfitri donations to approximately 400 recipients comprising the poor, disabled and orphans in Pulau Pangkor here today.

The menteri besar said the victory also proved that the people could no longer accept the politics of hate and provocation bandied by the opposition, and preferred the BN’s ‘people first’ approach.

“The people know that the politics of hate and provocation will not do them any good,” he said. — Bernama

Mara Junior collage for cop’s children to be set up in Kuala Kangsar

Another Mara Junior Science College (MRSM) will be built in Perak for children of the police force, announced Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Speaking during a function at the police tactical centre for the Kuala Kangsar by-election, he said this was to ensure the welfare of children of police personnel were well taken care of.

“MRSM for college kids will be built in Perak this year. There is one for police personnel in Kulim, so it’s fair to have one for the police officers here,” he said.

Quarters for police officers throughout the nation will also be checked by the Home Ministry to ensure that they live in comfortable conditions.

“Some of the quarters that I’ve seen looks deplorable and we will work on improving that.”

Dr Ahmad Zahid also praised police personnel stationed at the Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar by-elections for keeping things peaceful, adding that campaigns held were by far the most peaceful in the country.

DAP admitted it put up provocative billboards’

9 JUNE 2016 @ 1:50 PM BY DAWN CHAN

SEKINCHAN: Parti Amanah Negara (PAN) today said that it was their Pakatan Harapan ally, DAP, which had crafted the inflammatory campaign billboards in Sekinchan town.

PAN communications director Khalid Samad said they were kept in the dark over the matter before finding out it was DAP that had erected the billboards on Wednesday.

Khalid said he had spoken to Selangor DAP chairman Tony Pua to clarify matters. “Tony (Pua) explained that this was a situation where the Chinese community in particular have bottled up their feelings because of what Jamal (Sungai Besar Umno chief Datuk Jamal Yunos) had said about them.

“They are disappointed that Jamal had not retracted his hurtful racial statements and had not apologised to the Chinese community.

Those were the bottled up feelings that they needed to express (through the billboards). “We have discussed and agreed that we would not put up billboards like that as it can be provocative and should not happen anymore.

We will have closer coordination between us to ensure that the messages on Pakatan Harapan billboards are the same,” said Khalid. Yesterday, police tore down six billboards with messages targeting Barisan Nasional and Pas leaders afer receiving a report from the public. The messages include allegations against 1Malaysia Development Berhad and picture of Jamal allegedly uttering racist quotes.

Perak BN did not enggage with paragliders on nomination day

The Perak Barisan Nasional had nothing to do with the two paragliders who bore the coalition’s flag during nomination for the Kuala Kangsar parliamentary by-election last Sunday, said Menteri Besar Zambry Abdul Kadir.

“We do not know anything about them, and leave it to the authorities to conduct the investigation,” Zambry told reporters after chairing a coordination meeting on the Kuala Kangsar by-election in the Perak royal town today.

Kuala Kangsar by-election police spokesperson ACP Shaharon Anuar Abdul Latiff said yesterday the paragliders had not obtained approval from the Department of Civil Aviation.

Zambry, who is also Perak BN chairperson, said today’s meeting was to coordinate the programmes that had been drawn up for the by-election campaign

Repent . Zahid tells Nizar #KEKALBN #PRKKUALAKANGSAR

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi wants former Perak Menteri Besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin to repent for using the name of “Allah” in making various allegations against the Barisan Nasional (BN) government.

Zahid, who is a Umno vice-president but carrying out the duties of deputy president following the suspension of Muhyiddin Yassin from the post, said Nizar should change and reflect upon himself.

“I’m not surprised by the words from his mouth as he apparently has not changed and has not repented over what he has gone through before,” said the deputy prime minister.

He said this when asked to comment on Nizar’s statement cited on social media that said: “God wants the people of Kuala Kangsar to ‘teach’ (to defeat) BN through the Kuala Kangsar by-election.”

“I hope that his repentance receives Allah’s mercy,” said Zahid referring to the statement.

Nizar, who is Perak Amanah deputy chairman, was reported to have made the statement during a ceramah in Kampung Sayong Lembah here yesterday.

Nizar was said to have wondered why from the 222 parliamentary seats in the country, the by-elections were being held in Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar, and said this could be divine intervention.

“When I thought about it deeply, it came to my realisation that this is where I was given the mandate to be the Perak Menteri Besar from March 2008 to February 2009.

“This is where those two came and seized the Pakatan Rakyat government which I had led.

“Who were the two? None other than (Prime Minister) Najib (Razak) and (Ahmad) Zahid,” Nizar was quoted as saying in a report on social media.

Zahid, who is also the Bagan Datoh MP, said he would not react to every word said by Nizar.

Meanwhile, Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said what Nizar had said was “rude”.

He said he did not expect Nizar to utter such words without considering the feelings of the family of the late Wan Mohammad Khair-il, just for political reasons.

“Because I knew Datuk Wan Khair-il well. I know his wife. I know his children,” Hishammuddin said when asked to comment after visiting the Ramadan bazaar at Taman Berkat, Sungai Besar, today.

Hishammuddin, who is Umno vice-president, said based on Nizar’s character, it was difficult to stop him from making such statements.

He urged others not to follow Nizar’s example and to consider the feelings of the late MP’s family.
