Kg Buah Pala land title prohibits development: Lawyer

2009/07/30

KUALA LUMPUR: Land law in Penang categorically prohibits the re-development of Kampung Lorong Buah Pala, a lawyer here specialising in issues involving local authorities said yesterday.

Derek Fernandez said the temporary land ownership (Borang 11AK) document for the village issued by the Timor Laut Land Office stated that the 26,683.96 sq metre plot could not be transferred or mortgaged.

Neither could the land be leased or entered into any form of business transaction, he added.

Fernandez said the state government should issue a notice to the developer, Nusmetro Ventures (P) Sdn Bhd, to stop the demolition of structures on Penang’s High Chaparral.
“The land title actually prohibits any development unless expressly approved by the state government. The developer also cannot enter into any agreement with the Koperasi Pegawai Kerajaan Pulau Pinang,” he told a press conference held jointly with former Petaling Jaya councillor A.Thiruvenggadam.

Fernandez said the state government could buy the land on which the century-old settlement was located by just paying the original premium with interest.

“They do not have to pay the RM150 million cost of the housing
project promoted by the developer.”
He was commenting on Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s statement that the state could not acquire the land as it would need to pay RM150 million in compensation.

Could this be final move by the PR government?  CHECKMATE?

MANEK URAI At last the final official result of the Manek Urai by-election – PAS won with a very slim majority of 65 votes – PAS Abe Uji got 5,340 votes against Tuan Aziz 5,283. I was rather surprised not because PAS won or UMNO-BN lost but it’s the majority. I expected the majority to be between 1000-1500 votes. Not that I being a sore loser, in this case my expectation, but with such a slim victory surely something is not right. PAS and it’s PR partners should all sit down for some serious soul-searching session on what went wrong, and what contributed to the slim victory. PAS should be blamed for the poor result as they have been over harping on the ‘unity talk’ of late. I read a comment posted by a voter from Manek Urai who was not in favor of the ‘unity talk’, that he may as well vote for BN if that is the case. In the first place these voters don’t like UMNO-BN and now PAS wants to kowtow them. What the hack!

Anakdesa says what ever the so-called ‘unity talk’ is only UMNO’s ploy of ‘divide and rule’ tactic. They are damn good with this tactic works, but then again it all depends on the other party whether they are a fool or otherwise. This tactic was applied over and over again in Sabah with all the non-muslim bumiputra and the non-bumiputra population divided into smaller fractions with so many political parties to represent them. This has made Sabah it’s way into the Guinness Book of Record for having the most political parties in Malaysia, if not in the world.

Abe Uji - PAS

Abe Uji - PAS

Was it because the BN was clever in manipulating the situation or was it the Sabah so-called leaders who were actually damn STUPID. Or was the Sabah so-called leaders genius that they managed to convinced the central government to register and  accept their parties into BN, in return of position in the government where they can accumulate wealth?

Anakdesa has no political affiliation, so whoever had won in Manek Urai bears little significant to me. If I am a voter in Manek Urai, I’ll be choosing between the devil and the deep blue sea. However given no choice to choose as there are only UMNO-BN and PAS candidates, I would rather X-ed PAS. I’ve no lost love for UMNO-BN after what they have done to Sabah with it’s ‘divide-and-rule’ tactic and how they manipulated the PATI (pendatang asing tanpa izin), issuing them with I/Cs so that they can vote for BN. These have made the local lost their rights as Malaysian citizens in many aspects such as medical facilities, night-market business etc. Not to mention the increased in crimes – drugs, rapes, housebreaking, murder  etc. which was committed by these PATI.

Tuan Aziz - BN

Tuan Aziz - BN

As I’ve written in my earlier artical ( READ HERE ), UMNO-BN needs to change it’s leaders attitude who, many said are full of  CORRUPTIONCRONYISM, RACIST, FAVOURITISM AND ARROGANT attitudes. They need to change or will surely be changed in the next general election.

Coming back to Manek Urai by-election, PAS should understand that the ‘unity’ talk is actually a ‘divide-and-rule’ tactic of UMNO. They know very well that PR is growing each day and so the only way to break PR is by using this tactic thus creating suspicion among the members of PR. Ostensibly to unite the community, PAS members however believe Najib meant to weaken their party and to break it apart from its Pakatan partners PKR and DAP. If PAS believe this is so then why are they continuing talking about ‘unity talk’ with UMNO-BN? Is it true that Najib is willing to divide the community just for the sake of his political games and hold on to power?

Anakdesa says to PAS – don’t be a fool or being fooled!

Now lets analise the result of the by-election. Manek Urai is a really rural Malay heartland where most (99%) of it’s voters are Malays, yet the UMNO-BN was unable to capture the seat despite deploying enormous resources and promises such as bridge of votes. This is something that Datuk Seri Najib as the President of UMNO and BN should take cognizance of, he can’t win in a Malay heartland by-election, wonder what hope does he have in other mix-areas!

Or was the loses contributed by his Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin who stepped on the toes of the Manek Urai Malays when he  belittle Mohd Fauzi (PR candidate), a self-made trader with a thriving fish-wholesaling business. These might have hurt the Malays as most of these Malays voters are simple and friendly people. Then came the DPM from the urban, belittling and describing Mohd Fauzi as a mere fishmonger, a humble profession for most of Kelantanese rural folks. It is actually an insult to all fishmonger and fishermen. How could someone made a visit your house and say it is a bad habit to eat with your fingers when it is your culture. Isn’t that an insult to to your culture? Sometimes some people just don’t use their brain when they talk!

Or the promise of a bridge be built the very next day should they win the by-election. Isn’t this a very unrealistic promise. To build is of course realistic but to build it the very next day??? I just couldn’t believe this when I heard him said this in TV1. If those words were uttered by any man on the street, I might just smile and said “oh what the hell, what does he know about building a bridge” or maybe he was talking about building a wooden bridge with no proper architectural plan which needed a few months to draw. But when it came from the number 2 man-in-command, no dictionary can describe my astonishment.  Only a fool would believe that can happen. If you say to demolish Petronas Twin Tower the next day, I would incline to believe as that is possible with thousands kilos of C4 placed all round the building structure! After that with just a push of a button,  Petronas Twin Tower will vanish in the thin air.

This is the kind of empty/unrealistic promises especially made during election 0r by-election time just to buy votes and these are the kind of leaders we have in Malaysia! Ahhh… by the way, isn’t this corruption? No I presume as the words came from the people that walk the corridor of power BUT yes if it came from the mouth of the opposition.

Anyway, with a 65 majority, a win is still a win! RIGHT? SO WHAT!

SHAH ALAM (July 13, 2009) : The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) seized files on allocations expenditure by seven Selangor state assemblymen from the Petaling District Office two weeks ago and have been questioning recipients of the money since.

Calling it a harrasment of their constituents, the seven assemblymen are planning to lodge a complain with the MACC advisory board member Tun Hamid Mohamed.

Those who had their files seized are Teresa Kok (DAP-Kinrara), Elizabeth Wong (PKR-Bukit Lanjan), Edward Lee (DAP-Bukit Gasing), Hannah Yeoh (DAP-Subang Jaya), Dr Cheah Wing Yin (Damansara Utama), Ean Yong Hian Wah (DAP-Seri Kembangan) and Lau Weng San (DAP-Kampung Tunku).

Teresa Kok3Kok, who led the press conference held on the sidelines of the Selangor state assembly sitting today, said: “The MACC’s actions seem to be politically motivated because they are only targeted at Pakatan Rakyat (PR) elected representatives.”

She pointed out that there had been no follow up to reports lodged early last year on some Barisan Nasional assemblymen who had spent their entire RM500,000 allocation for 2008 within the first two months of that year, adding that the MACC seems to be interest more in netting ikan bilis (small fish) compared to bigger cases such as the Port Klang Freetrade Zone.
“We are also wondering why the MACC has targeted only the Chinese assemblymen,” Kok queried.

She said the imam and committee members of a mosque in her constituency to which she had donated a set of RM10,000 speakers to had been summoned and questioned by the MACC more than once.

“What is our offence? That we used our allocations to help our constituents? What is their motive?” Kok asked, saying that they did not know about the seizure of the files until the recipients of the funds called to say they were being summoned by MACC.

Wong said she had received a call from an organiser of a Deepavali Carnival in her area saying that he was called up and questioned by the MACC pertaining allocations received.

“I consider this as harassment and intimidation of my constituents,” she said.

ElizabethWongYeoh meanwhile said her assistant received a call from the MACC on Friday inquiring about a RM10,000 allocation for a health clinic.

“We hold this health clinic two to three times a year for those in the lower income group in my constituency which does not have a government health clinic,” she said adding that no one from MACC attended the clinic which was held at Indah Court in PJS11 although invited.

“All our expenditure is transparent and available on my blog, I have nothing to hide,” she added.

Yeoh said the MACC should concentrate on those who had misused the people’s money instead of harassing and intimidating the public and checking on monies allocated for beneficial programmes for the people.

Kok added MACC should check on the Deputy Prime Minister’s offer to the people of Manek Urai to build a RM7 million bridge if they put BN in power in their area.

“Is this not a bribe?” she asked.

The government’s money is after all from the people’s taxes and the federal government has a duty to use their money for the benefit of the Manek Urai people, thus if the people there need a bridge then the government should build it and not use it as a pawn to garner votes, said Kok.

kangarooAnakdesa says to all Malaysian, please check with MACC and PDRM should any of you receive assistance such as water-tank, zinc sheet etc from your wakil rakyat especially during election or by-election. These assistance could be a bribe and recipient could be hauled up by MACC. Is this one of the many evil ways, the people that walk the corridor of power, harass and undermine the opposition lead state? This rather a sad chapter in the histroy of our so-called democratic country. MACC is so effecient and is learning fast and is in the process of following the footstep of our judiciary which has pratically destroy the Malaysian constitution in order to please it’s master.

Who Mastermind The Murder Of Altantuya?

Who Masterminded The Murder Of Altantuya?

SHAH ALAM: The leave application by the father of murdered Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu to quash the prosecution’s decision not to appeal against the acquittal of political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda will be mentioned at a High Court here on July 8.

The matter will be called before a deputy registrar to ensure that parties had filed all required documents for the hearing proper.

On Tuesday, Judicial Commissioner Justice Noraini Abdul Rahman ordered Altantuya’s father, Dr Shaariibuu Setev, to file submissions-in-reply to both respondents’ papers.

Setev had on Dec 24 last year filed an application for judicial review to quash the Attorney-General’s decision not to appeal against Razak’s acquittal.

He had named the Attorney-General and Razak as respondents in his application.

What a sad ending for those two guys who were condemned to death for murdering Altantuya. If I am in their shoes, I will surely upside down the bucket and let all the rubbish out, like who are involved and instructed them to commit the murder. Why suffer while the master-mind is happily enjoying the fruit of their pending death? They might have murdered her but what’s their motive? They have no connection with her before they were instructed to neutralized her. Instructions must have been given to them to neutralized her BUT by whom? Before the real culprit or culprits is/are charged for instrumenting the neutralization of Altantuya, then justice is deem to have not been carried out.

Originally the Attorney-General charged Abdul Razak Baginda for conspiring, then when High Court judge Justice Mohd Zaki Md Yasin acquitted and discharged him, the AG decided not to appeal. My simple conclusion is that the AG is incompetent or was there an instruction not to appeal? Why charged him in the first place and then said “had made a finding of fact in its decision (the court)”. Was charging him in the first place just part of the ‘wayang kulit’ and ‘let the court decide’ decision. A decision which was pre-arranged? Only GOD knows the real truth and the FIRE OF HELL is awaiting the real culprit no matter how religiously he/she pray for forgiveness. As I have said again and again, we might run away from the truth, use our richness and political connection on earth to hide ourselves from the evil we do on earth but we can never run nor hide from our Creator.

MAY THE RAGING FIRE OF HELL AWAITS THE MURDERER/S!

IPOH, Mon: Not a single land development proposal for the new township of Seri Iskandar was discussed by Perak’s state executive council throughout 2008.

Abdullah Antong Sabri, who is secretary of the Perak state executive council, told the Sessions Court today that although he was aware that there were proposal papers on land development for the new township, located about 45km south-west of here, none of these were brought to the attention of the state exco.

Testifying at the corruption trial of state assemblymen Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu (Independent-Changkat Jering) and Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi (Independent-Behrang) and four others, he said as the person-in-charge of readying files for the perusal of exco members during exco meetings, he did not see land development files pertaining to any Seri Iskandar project.

zaid07-june15PETALING JAYA, 15 June 2009: Senior Umno leaders shot down efforts last year to get ministers to publicly declare their assets and income, former minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim revealed today.

Zaid, who was sacked from Umno and joined Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) on 13 June, blamed Umno leaders for scuttling then Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s intentions for all ministers to declare their assets.
Zaid “I still remember when Pak Lah suggested that ministers declare their assets and income. I suggested to Pak Lah that the declaration forms should be simplified like the ones used by the Australian government so that they are not difficult to fill.

“But it was never implemented because of objections by senior Umno leaders,” Zaid said in his blog posting Kepada Adnan Yaakob dan rakan-rakan.

Zaid was responding to Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, the Pahang Menteri Besar, who called him “a wolf in sheep’s clothing” for joining PKR.

Zaid resigned as a minister on 15 Sept 2008 over the government’s use of the Internal Security Act and was sacked from Umno on 2 Dec 2008 after 23 years as a member.6pchkx_th55

These UMNO leaders must be damn rich with the rakyat’s monies that they dare not publicly declare their assets and income. This is what we rakyat have been saying, OUR LEADERS ARE CORRUPTED! If not, what’s there to hide? Or scared? We rakyat never ask you corrupted leaders for a single cents. All we ask is RETURN our monies!

KAJANG: Former Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Zaid Ibrahim has joined Parti Keadilan Rakyat.

PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who made the announcement during the party’s special convention to amend the party constitution, said Zaid’s inclusion will boost PKR’s agenda to promote democracy and freedom of expression.

He added that Zaid was known to be vocal against the Government’s arbitrary use of the Internal Security Act (ISA).

Zaid had resigned from the Government last year due to dissatisfaction over the use of the ISA on a reporter, a web portal editor, and a Selangor state executive council member.

In welcoming Zaid on Saturday, Anwar commended him for his bravery in fighting for human rights, democratic principles and for the independence and reform of the judiciary.

“Zaid’s close friendship with colleagues from PKR, DAP and PAS will help strengthen the inter-party relations in the Pakatan Rakyat.

“His role in PKR will be formalised by the leadership later. Due to his experience Zaid may be given a seat in the supreme council and head the political bureau,” he told reporters.

Zaid said he had decided to join PKR and not the DAP or PAS as his political ideals were similar to PKR which he described as a multiracial party that fights for the rights of Malaysians.

“I choose this day to join because this is also a historical day for PKR (to amend its constitution). I’m offering my services as I also have friends in Pakatan Rakyat component parties, and I know Anwar is a good man,” he added.

Zaid resigned from the Government in September last year in protest after he criticised the arrests of DAP MP Teresa Kok, online portal editor Raja Petra Kamarudin, and Sin Chew Daily journalist Tan Hoon Cheng under the ISA.

The former Kota Baru MP was also seen mingling with Pakatan leaders at their functions before he was sacked from Umno in December last year.

For years I’ve been following the political situation in Malaysia and I’ve never came across a man such as Zaid Ibrahim, who stood-by his principle. How many of the present or the past ministers will/have willingly quit their post if what they are instructed to do was against their principle. NONE except of course Chua Soi Lek. But then again that is because of different issue. However I still salute him for being a gentleman who accepted his wrong doing and resigned.

I have great respect for a someone like Datuk Zaid for his openness and  I believe that should he be given the opportunity to run the country, corruption and  cronyism will be a thing of the past. Many ex-ministers and politicians will find themselves in court for all the corruptions they did during the past years. We need someone like Zaid to make things happen when the present or past government can’t even dare to think, let along do i.e. fight corruption.

salute

To Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, Anakdesa salutes you!
