Rolling out the ‘3L’ program

Former Opposition Leader and now sodomy and sexual deviant convict Anwar Ibrahim’s petition for a Royal Pardon has failed. So it is time to capitalise this opportunity and make the best of it.

Anwar denied royal pardon, say lawyers

KUALA LUMPUR, April 1 — Malaysia has rejected a petition seeking a royal pardon for jailed opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who is serving a five-year prison term for sodomy, his lawyers said today.

The petition was filed by Anwar’s family in February after his sentence was upheld by Malaysia’s highest court. There was no immediate comment about the ruling from Malaysia’s government.

Anwar, who once posed the greatest threat to Malaysia’s long-ruling coalition, was found guilty of sodomising a former aide, a charge that he said was a politically motivated attempt to end his career.

He was head of a three-party opposition alliance that made stunning gains in the 2013 election, which for the first time raised the prospect of a genuine challenge to the coalition that has ruled Malaysia since independence in 1957.

Anwar was the ruling party’s rising star in the 1990s until he fell out with then prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. His family and political party have voiced concern about his health and conditions in prison since his sentence was upheld. — Reuters

Anwar’s political career will end here too.After this, the Director General of Prisons probably would write to the Speaker of the Dewan Rakyat and His Excellency would do what is provided in the Federal Constitution; declare Permatang Pauh Parliamentary seat vacant.

Anwar no longer Permatang Pauh MP, says lawyer

BY CHRISTINE CHEAH

KUALA LUMPUR: Senior federal counsel Amarjeet Singh says the petition for a royal pardon over Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy conviction by his family has been disposed, and he is no longer Permatang Pauh MP.

“Our stand is a decision has been made. The Constitution has spoken for itself,” Amarjeet said to reporters.

However, Anwar’s lawyers N. Surendran, Latheefa Koya and Dr Dheeraj Bhar said the decision by the Pardons Board was not confirmed and would only be made known in the Appellate and Special Powers Court here on Wednesday.

The decision was conveyed to Anwar’s lawyers in the form of an affidavit issued by Datuk Nursiah Arshad, the Prime Minister’s Department legal affairs director-general, who is also part of the Pardons Board secretariat.

Amarjeet said the applicants had asked for the delay in announcing the decision in order to convey it to Anwar first.

Surendran confirmed that neither Anwar nor his family was informed of the decision, which was made Thursday.

He then will inform the Election Commission Chairman and the EEC would convene to decide on the by-election for the rakyat of the said constituency to be given their right, for an MP to be elected and represent them in Parliament.

PKR is facing disintegration. Along with it, the Opposition loose coalition of (un)holy-marriage-of-(in)conveniences-between-back-stabbing-strange-bedfellows would disintegrate too.

The cracks are very clear when DAP CEC issued a statement that they no longer want to work with PAS President Dato’ Seri Hadi Awang, because of Hudud. Hadi is not an Opposition Leader without experience or contribution. He was one time the Opposition Leader in Parliament (11th Parliament Nov 1999-Apr 2004).

The best to do now is salvage whatever reminiscence of Anwar’s political tracks and make it satirical.

Probably someone could make a bit of money, as Anwar’s bizarre political legacy could be preserved so that more especially younger Malaysians could have the opportunity what he did and how he tried to burn the nation down, for his quest for power and hoodwink people for his in-despicable lust and sexual addiction.

The Prisons Department could provide one corner within any of the prisons complex and do a showcase centre about Anwar Ibrahim’s life; a fiery student leader, ISA detainee, admission into UMNO, won the 6GE and given a post as a Deputy Minister, toppling UMNO Youth Chief and eventually toppling UMNO Deputy President and taking over as Deputy Prime Minister with Minister of Finance job.

During these times, Anwar had several despicable sexual habits of buggering up men, adulteration with married women and fornication.

He was exposed by the Special Branch of the Royal Malaysian Police in 1993 but then Prime Minitser Dato’ Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad was not convinced enough until 2 September 1998 when he was summarily sack from all Cabinet posts. A day later, UMNO Supreme Council sacked him as a party member.

He riled up the people with voracious and malignant lies about Dr. Mahathir, his closes Cabinet colleagues, IGP, AG and eventually the entire Federal Government system and got too many to rise against the system in a massive mobstreet-styled demonstration, known as ‘Reformasi’.

‘Reformasi’ later became transformed as a political party, KeAdilan and PKN later combined with the Partai Sosialis Rakyat Malaysia to become Parti KeAdilan Rakyat as we know today.

The showcase centre would serve as a facility to exhibit the chronology of Anwar’s life; as an anarchist, political animal and sexual deviant. Artifacts and video footages would be displayed. Most of all, at the end of the showcase, visitors are allowed to view Anwar’s lifestyle as a sodomy convict through looking glasses.

This special program, which would we opened to public should be called as ‘Lawat, Libur, Liwat’ of the ‘3L’ program. The number of visitors admitted in day should be limited because Anwar is an old man (68 years old). Hence, the hours that visitors are allowed to have a peek at him through the glass (probably during his reading, feeding or political pantomimes) should be limited to probably 4-5 hours a day only.

It is in a way a living monument for the nation to honour Anwar as a failed politician, citizen, family head and probably someone who is supposed to embrace the teaching of God.

Most of all, Malaysians could benefit from the entire end-to-end big picture truth and watch for themselves a sick man who for a few times almost became the Prime Minister. After all, Anwar Ibrahim was an addict of attention even though how negative it was and he would enjoy meeting five thousand new faces every weekend and public holidays, if not everyday.

The mini gift shop at the end of this facility could provide jobs and activities for thousands of inmates of the Malaysian prison system, via the cottage industry program.

Divine

Generally, in many counts Malaysians are bent against changes. Even when these changes brought about progression.

The story captured is from Facebook posting of the Kedah-northern-most-small-town-of-Kokdiang-born Norizan bin Shariff. He is also very well known in the cybersphere as Nobisha.

The negative-mindedness of these small village local surau clergies is so bizarre that they are even willing to charge then Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad with such unimaginable slander for wanting to be divine. Just because of synchronising the clock between Semenanjung and Sabah and Sarawak.

Same goes with the consumption tax introduced in Budget 2014 (October 2013), Goods and Sales Tax (GST), which comes into force today. Ministry of Finance issued a brief to explain GST broadly.

Just like the synchronisation of the clock almost thirty four years ago, changes brought upon questions by the dis-informed society. Like the clock story, rather than getting more information, many would rather speculate, manipulate and ridicule which adds to the confusion further.

Earlier was the Hudud Enactment, unanimously passed by the Kelantan State Assembly. Even learned ones refuse to deploy proper methods and processes despite the hype surrounding then the propose Bill, which had so huge traction through time.

When it was passed, many reacted in very childish mannerism although they proclaim to champion the many universal values but being stupid about things and issues that they disagree or not music to their ears. The media that prop their agenda even lied about it.

When they are dealt with, they are unable to deal with their own lies based on inability to respect the overwhelming wishes of the Kelantanese people.

In different ways, the synchronisation of time then and introduction and enforcement of GST is for the betterment of Malaysia.

We believe, in time these people today who ridicule GST would be proven wrong.

Benefits of the GST are expected to provide the uptrend in export and mechanism for a more balanced Federal Government budget which expected to be surplus by the time the nation enters the developed nation status by 2020.

Unfortunately, some of these information and mechanisms are probably too technical for the average Malaysians’ immediate consumption. It is like combining the understanding of the mechanism of a new tax with macro economy and monetarist policy, all in the same breadth.

Hardly it is impossible to translate them in making the common people understand better. Its more likely the case of not doing enough.

Then again, trying hard enough must include the effort to simplify it for the consumption of the majority. For instance, in the words of a blogger who contributed so much in translating economics language into chewable food for thoughts, “I think the most important reason for backing GST is that its the one instrument that can raise enough revenue to properly fund the required social transfers to make a real dent in inequality“.

What is the downside of this episode is that all the Federal Government agencies and departments had a full eighteen months to work out the whole strategic communication strategy and roll out plan.

The synchronisation of information gathering, strategic communication planning, roll out of medium term and tactical plan and timing of dissemination of information isn’t godly at all. However systemic failure, should be seen as sinful.
