Defending Rogue-bert & demonisation of law enforcement agencies


Din Merican: An Anwarista in uniform

An Anwarista has been proven systematically out to get Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail and former IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan. This time, he is using the digital democracy of his blog-space to campaign in the defense of  MACC consultation an corruption prevention panel member  Tan Sri Robert “Rogue Commissioner” Phang and demonise Gani and Musa.

A few days ago a highly respected SOPO blog Another Brick in the Wall scooped a story about Phang tried to bribe a Chief Secretary of a strategic ministry a few days before Hari Raya Aidil Fitri. That came just days after Phang refuted MACC consultation and corruption prevention panel ChairmanTan Sri Ramon Navaratnam’s opinion in the open and issued a press statement.

It was obvious that Phang is out after Gani and Musa. The linkage is simple. Phang is a very good buddy of Former Police Commercial Crime Director Dato’ Ramli Yusuf, who was charge for corruption. Ramli was defended by Rosli Dahlan. Despite being acquitted from the charge, Ramli never did explain how as career Police officer, he amassed so much money which was said to be in the neighbourhood of RM 27 million. Rosli was also investigated by MACC and eventually charged.

Phang refuted Another Brick in the Wall’s most sensational scoop so far for the year. Again, the SOPO blogger argued that Phang’s dismissal of the charge was very petty and the linkage of Gani’s recent Hajj trip and personalities that he conveniently bumped into in the Holy land was used as a lame excuse to incarcerate Gani.


The Anwarista duo who rabidly when after Gani Patail & Musa Hassan

What is baffling is that a blogger recently made Dato’ rabidly went after Gani and Musa in the same breadth as defending Phang, without any investigations ever carried out. How did Dato’ Din Merican know that Phang is totally innocent and the charge against Phang giving bribe was a fabrication?

The fact that when Another Brick in the Wall scooped that story and the paper that cares quickly took it on the mainstream media’s domain, a proper investigation could be launched, with or without a Police and/or MACC report. The said Chief Secretary, who was said to be ready to spill the beans, should be interviewed and his statement taken with regards to Phang’s audience with him with the excuse of “Presenting a t-shirt”.

Why is it Din Merican was ultra quick to defend Phang and in the same breadth, campaigned to demonise Gani and Musa?

As for Phang, they now accuse him of being in conspiracy with me, RPK, and a few others. Conspiracy for what? According to them, we are out to attack and discredit former IGP Musa Hassan, the MACC, and A-G Gani Patail. These proxy attackers should know that there is no need for me to attack A-G Gani or his Chambers.”

Again, in another para:

Now they accuse Phang of bribery! The intention is clear. It is to make Phang the subject of investigation by PDRM and  MACC. A-G Gani Patail will then decide to press charges against Phang. That is what happens when you go against A-G Gani Patail. That was what happened Dato’ Ramli Yusuff and Rosli Dahlan in the MAS Scandal. Instead of going after the real crooks, they went after the Police Director and the lawyer!

But they made a big mistake in Rosli’s case and he is now fighting back. Are these bloggers, MACC and AG Gani Patail making the same mistake now by attacking Phang?

In his wealth of experience and intelectual stature (now, a ‘Professor’), can’t Din possibly imagine if not really think through that Ramli and Rosli are actually the real crooks? Like the saying goes, “When there is a smoke, there is a fire”. Just because they were let of, doesn’t mean that they are innocent. A court case is about presentation of evidence and interpretation of the law.


Din Merican once as Anwar's Chief of Staff. Now, Nurul is Lembah Pantai MP, Nik Nazmi is ADUN for Seri Setia (Selangor) & Sim is ADUN for Pantai Jerjak (Penang)

As a responsible citizen, Din instead should demand for a thorough investigation if not a Royal Commission of Inquiry. Until the statement of the said Chief Secretary is taken, then it is baffling that he could simplistically refute a very serious charge of an anti-graft-fighter is actually attempting an act of graft. The investigation is necessary to exonerate MACC where as a crime fighting agency, one of its top people  is practice the crime the commission was formed to combat.

Unless, as a onetime supporter of a band-of-anarchists’ sordid political agenda, he is undertaking the role now that he claims to be ‘outside’ the PKR ‘circle of trust’.

It is obvious that the one-time adviser of the partyless-Opposition Leader Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim is still very much an Anwarista, despite claiming to no longer enjoying the role as a ‘Startegic Adviser’ to man who has now deep into the conundrum of a second sodomy trial. It is also very obvious  that Abuse-of-power-ex-convict Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim and his band of bandits are out to demonise the entire law enforcement agencies fraternity in their strategy to ascend onto power.

Din presented that the Attorney General’s Chambers, Royal Malaysian Police and Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission are not to be trusted and not the crime fighting agencies that they are supposed to be but instead a tool for some parties’ specific agenda and/or protecting specific interests. That is very much the strategy of Pakatan Rakyat, in sundry.


Anwar's Band of Bandits

It is empirically evident that Pakatan Rakyat is unable to manage, let alone deliver its promises despite the mandate given. So for these anarchists’ mentality politicians, for them to remain in power in what ever shred of support they can garner from rakyat is by deception. The major hindrance to their brand and style of  ‘politics of hatred’ and ‘politics of blatant lies’ is the law. Thus, demonising the law enforcement agencies had been the Oppositions’ strategy ever since they capitalise on the emotions of the rakyat that were managed to be provoked upon the humiliating sacking of Anwar from the Deputy Prime Minister’s position on 2 September 1998.

Din Merican as a true-blue Anwarista is now functioning exactly on that notion and node. Demonising Gani, Musa and MACC Chief Commissioner Dato’ Seri Abu Kassim Mohamed and all the law agencies in the manner how it was presented be him should be seen as nothing but ‘seditious’, as it is clear he breached Section 3(1)(c).

Excerpts of the Sedition Act:

Under section 3(1), those acts defined as having a seditious tendency are acts with a tendency:

(a) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against any Ruler or against any Government;

(b) to excite the subjects of the Ruler or the inhabitants of any territory governed by any government to attempt to procure in the territory of the Ruler or governed by the Government, the alteration, otherwise than by lawful means, of any matter as by law established;

(c) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against the administration of justice in Malaysia or in any State;

(d) to raise discontent or disaffection amongst the subjects of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong or of the Ruler of any State or amongst the inhabitants of Malaysia or of any State;

(e) to promote feelings of ill-will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Malaysia; or

(f) to question any matter, right, status, position, privilege, sovereignty or prerogative established or protected by the provisions of part III of the Federal constitution or Article 152, 153 or 181 of the Federal Constitution.

The connection of dots between Anwar Ibrahim, Phang who some thought to be a rogue businessman, rogue-Police officer Ramli and Rosli is very clear. Probably if a thorough investigation is conducted, then it could be proven with incriminating evidence that Phang and Ramli is connected with ‘Lords of Underworld Vices’ and Pakatan Rakyat especially DAP is the provider of the ‘political-patronage’ of this very large unaccounted economy.

The plot thickens.
