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.

  1. “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”

    FYI, Ramli was acquitted “without his defense being called”. Therefore, the charges of him amassing 27 million is not true. In fact, when MACC decides to charge him in court, it was not about him having 27 million. You can refer to the court papers for more info. Anyway, regardless of wat offense he was charged, it was proven to be untrue. Hence, he was acquitted “without his defense being called”.

    “Rosli was also investigated by MACC.”

    Perhaps you should also elaborate on why Rosli was also being investigated? Anyway, fyi, he too was acquitted “without his defense being called” for whatever charges. In fact, he is fighting back. He is now suing those involved in framing him.

    “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.”

    Well, Gani was also seen in public with Tajuddin Ramli and Shahidan Shafie. There are pictures of them together.

    “How did Dato’ Din Merican know that Phang is totally innocent and the charge against Phang giving bribe was a fabrication?”

    Phang has issued a statement denying all these. Perhaps we should await for the police/MACC to investigate. Perhaps you or the relevant individual should also make a police report especially the owner of Another Brick and the Minister.

    “As a responsible citizen, Din should demand for a thorough investigation if not a Royal Commission of Inquiry.”

    Perhaps you did not follow the trials of Ramli Yusuff and Rosli Dahlan. In the court in KK, Sabah, the judge specifically pronounced that IGP Musa Hassan is an “incredible” witness whose statements must not be believed. In other words, he’s a liar. He lied in court. Also, perhaps you should ask why both Ramli and Rosli were acquitted “without their defense being called”.

    Oh ya, perhaps you should also demand a Royal Commission of Inquiry on why and how MAS suffers a loss of about 8 billion. With this, everything will be clear. In particular, whether Gani, Musa Hassan, Tajuddin, and Shahidan are the real crooks or otherwise. At the same time, there should also be an investigations or Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate Robert Phang with the owner of Another Brick be called upon to testify.

    • Wilson,

      That’s very good.

      However, we can never do the arithmetic on how the RM 8 billion came about. Even accumulated losses, it did not come up to that figure.

      If you can, please let us know. We really want to know how did this RM 8 billion came about.

      Seriously, please do the math and present it here. If you can e mail us, better still. We would gladly publish your accounting of the “RM 8 billion losses”.

      Failure means that its a figment of another Anwarista’s sordid agenda via avenue of blatant lie to demonise a Malay controlled institution, like Malaysia Airlines.

      • Bro Big Dog,

        Just out of curiousity. I agree that most of us are puzzled by Dato Ramli’s wealth but why Dato Ramli alone? How is it that you don’t seem to question the former MB of Selangor, Dr Khir Toyo’s wealth?

        As I mentioned at the begining, just very curious….

        Thanks!

      • Thanks.

        Khir Toyo is under going a corrupt case at the moment. We are curious also. So since the case is already awaiting trial, lets the progress takes its course.

      • mas yg kata dia rugi 8 billion. kao tanyalah idris jala
        menyampah betul

    • Investigate every public official who cannot justify his/ her wealth.

      Also private sector fellows who the authorities have strong reasons to believe collaborate or abet the commission of corrupt acts.

      No two-way about it.

    • I am curious, Mr big dog. Malaysia-Singapore Airlines (MSA) was split up in 1972 into Malaysia Airlines (MAS and Singapore Airlines (SIA).

      Fast forward to 2011. Can we compare the financials for MAS and SIA to see how they have progressed from 1972? All the financial statements are matters of public record, are they not?

      Are we pulling another Gayus Tambunan-like stunt here to pillory the scapegoats while the big fish run free unchecked and uncalled to account?

      • Its hardly the appropriate place and time to discuss on this. However, just to highlight a few salient points: MSA was split to MAS and SIA for specific agendas:

        MAS wanted to concentrate on communications and linkages, especially between Semenanjung and Sabah/Sarawak (RAS etc)

        SIA wanted to go fully commercial.

        So SIA took all the international and profitable routes where as MAS was focusing to serve the development on Malaysia first. Malaysia Airlines System (as it was then called), had to re-worked on the re-establishment of their international routes. On 1 Oct 1972, MAS only had 6 B737-200s and 6 Fokker F27s. Thats it!

        Different targets, different objectives.

      • Skillganon,
        I’m just curious Mr Skillganon, just how old are you?

      • @ Skilmoron1066

        You should rather advise your Great-grandfather Minister to address Singapore’s national debt which rises staggeringly over 100% with respect to Singapore’s GDP instead of doing some MAS-SIA comparative rants here.

  2. Bd write about Malaysia being ranked no 5 in the world when it come’s to illicit money transfer or that too you want me to furnish documents.

    • sam

      That was reported in today’s (Jan 21) TODAY newspaper (www.todayonline.com) in Singaporee.

      According to Washington-based Global Financial Integrity (GFI), the top 5 Asian countries for illicit financial outflows for the period 2000-2008 are:

      1. China (US$2.18 trillion)
      5. Malaysia (US$291 billion)
      12. The Philippines (US$109.3 billion)
      14. Indonesia (US$104.5 billion)
      15. India (US$104.1 billion)

      According to the report, “GFI defines illicit financial flows as generally involving the transfer of money earned through illegal activities such as corruption, transactions involving contraband goods, criminal activities and efforts to shelter wealth from tax authorities…In the case of Malaysia, the additional factor could well be the significant discrimination in labour markets which move people and unrecorded capital out of the country…As a result of some of these factors, the volume of illegal capital flight from Malaysia has come to dwarf legitimate capital inflowws into the country in recent years…”

      • Wat dis got to do with de price of tea in China?

        Talk about de subject of BD’s post la, smart alecs. Lu ada baca ka?

        You fellas just wanna put Malaysia down, don’t you?

        That sillyanon fella has been in the habit of licking Lee Kuan Yew’s balls here and there. Though this time he mentions Singapore only by way of beginning his comment with a report in Singapore.

        Perhaps this bloke is Singaporean. Can’t say the lightest thing amiss in Singapore fearing walloping by the Singapore authorities, so he roams in Malaysian blogs.

        What a fella.

      • Agree with Zen. That’s why I wonder just how old is this Skillgannon fella. You see, there are anatomical differences between children’s and adults’ upper airway and digestive tract. He might choke on Kuan Yew’s balls later one of these days. (P/S: No extra point guessing the differences between children’s and adults’ brain)

      • Moron should read this.

        Oct 2 (Reuters) – Singapore’s refusal to soften its strict bank secrecy laws could scupper talks with Europe about a trade agreement, a European politician said on Tuesday.

        “We say that we don’t think there’s money laundering going on here, but clearly people engaged in money laundering are looking for places like Singapore with low levels of transparency to actually engage in money laundering,” Ford said.

        “If I was looking for somewhere to do my money laundering, Singapore would be getting towards the top of my list these days,” he added.

        Ignasi Guardans-Cambo, another member of the parliament’s trade committee, said Singapore needed to step up transparency of its financial sector to avoid the possibility of attracting organised crime given that it was due to open the first of two multi-billion dollar casinos in late 2009.

        “The big money laundering hubs in the world are disappearing and nobody wants Singapore to replace them. And, of course, nobody is accusing Singapore now, but that’s a reality not only in terms of financing of terrorism, but also in terms of organised crime.”

  3. Salam Bigdog, digress sikit.

    @Skilgannon,

    This GFI is another one of those “for what purpose?” orgs.

    Quotes

    “In this report we venture an estimate for 2009, based on incomplete data.”

    “GFI’s original 2008 IFF Report and subsequent updates fill an important gap in the global monitoring of illicit flows, which provide fodder for the world’s shadow financial system.”
    http://www.gfip.org/storage/gfip/documents/reports/IFF2010/gfi_iff_update_report-web.pdf

    “The shadow banking system or the shadow financial system consists of non-depository banks and other financial entities (e.g., investment banks, hedge funds, and money market funds) that grew in size dramatically after the year 2000 and play an increasingly critical role in lending businesses the money necessary to operate. By June 2008, the U.S. shadow banking system was approximately the same size as the U.S. traditional depository banking system. The equivalent of a bank run occurred within the shadow banking system during 2007-2008, when investors stopped providing funds to (or through) many entities in the system. Disruption in the shadow banking system is a key component of the ongoing subprime mortgage crisis.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadow_banking_system#Contribution_to_the_2007.E2.80.932010_financial_crisis

    “The term developed country is used to describe countries that have a high level of development according to some criteria. Which criteria, and which countries are classified as being developed, is a contentious issue and is surrounded by fierce debate

    “Countries not fitting such definitions are classified as developing countries.

    There is no established convention for the designation of “developed” and “developing” countries or areas in the United Nations system” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Developed_country

    My point..1) The GFI report is based mostly on assumptions which the authors’ modus oprandi is tai chi, side tracking with dubitable language, when they are unable to justify.. 2) Another org diverting the attention of the layman from the actual culprits of past and present global financial crises and other US financial maladies..3) Why report “developing countries” only?..4) GFI, if credible, should make a study on “developed countries” to balance the report.

    Assuming the GFI report is credible, has there ever been a financial meltdown in Asia, caused by IFF, having global consequences? The total IFF as reported amounts to 7,289 trillion USD (PRC 25% of total), 7 years from 2002-2008 mind you. Compare that to the current US deficit alone, of 15 trillion USD and the sub-prime losses of 4 trillion USD in only 4 years. http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/weo/2009/01/pdf/exesum.pdf

    Funny how the IMF summary does not state curbing IFF as part of its remedies.

    • Well done, Freddie. More of such, please.

      Kita telanjangkan these blokes who use any and all sorts of so-called reports, studies and conjectures to put Malaysia down.

      Especially blokes from down south who may vent their frustration against the Lee Kuan Yew Government by escaping into blogs run by Malaysians, like here.

      Reasonable fellows OK. But as you have proven in this case, those mean and ill-intent ones using uncertain and unverified data put out against Malaysia are despicable and are not welcome.

  4. Any Government official who has more than his total emoluments from the day he joined service to date in cash in a bank must be ivestigated. Never mind about his property holdings. May be he is a good investor as one of KSNs explained, got it from his parents or better still got it from his in-laws.

    • If their mak bapak gave the properties, the receipients can easily explain and show proof.

      Investigate them too.

      Especially the politicians. MACC must engage qualified accountants. Who can try to trace proxies, nominees and holders of powers of attorney. Charge both the holders and the givers concerned.

      Like Khir Toyo buying property at RM3.5 million when the seller bought it at RM7 million. Charge both the buyer and the seller. Hope MACC can prove the charges beyond reasonable doubt.

  5. pretty incredible stuff by the author, Ramli cleared by courts to such an extreme that defense not called, and he should still explain but for Khir Toyo lets be quiet until court case is completed?

    Hypocritical or just a blog with a mission?

  6. Saya nak puji sikit.

    Big Dog taruh gambar Nurul Izzah. Dia nampak orang muda dan cantik. Nasib baik menang Lembah Pantai diPRU 12. Bukan sebab orang sukakan PKR. Sebab orang fed up dengan Tun Dol pada masa itu. Dan saya rasa sebab Nurul nampak cantik dan “innocent looking”.

    Pemberita tanya emak dia pasal alibi ayahnya Anwar dimasa yang dia dituduh meliwat Saiful. Emak dia jawab “Dimesyurat ..”, nampak macam jawab yang tak tegas. Cepat cepat Nurul kata bermesuarat dengan dia dan emaknya.

    Ini mengkagumkan. Kalau betul, bermakna Polis dan Peguam Negara menipu. Tak mungkin. Tuhan saja yang tahu jika Nurul dan emaknya membohong. Kalau ada Pendakwa Raya yang geliga dan ada taktik bijak boleh dedahkan diso’al jawab Nurul dan emaknya diMahkamah, boleh kita dapat tahu juga.

    Teruk Nurul dan emaknya jika diso’al jawab sebagai saksi diMahkamah. Depa boleh disaman dan diso’al jawab sebagai saksi.

    Walau apa pun, kuat semangat Nurul nak cuba bela nasib bapaknya. Ini puji juga bagi Nurul. Tapi kesian dia sebab ada didalam kem liwat. The sin of the father should not be borne by the daughter.

  7. BD, well done. Your grasp of the English language is improving indeed. Perhaps one day, the size of your testicles may be large enough to write the truth and not the musings of your political bosses. I won’t hold my breath for that day though…

    • But do you have testicles, Fed?
