TERKINI LAHAD DATU - MNLF beri amaran - akan hantar anggota andai pertempuran tercetus

Posted: 26 Feb 2013 08:34 PM PST

MANILA: The Moro National Liberation Front has indicated that they will send reinforcements if hostilities break out between the Filipino followers of the Sulu Sultan and Malaysian authorities.
MNLF Special Branch Service Chief Khaber Sampang said they will send reinforcements once hostilities break out.
He said "a full-blown hostility could erupt" once the Malaysians manhandle the heirs or followers of the Sultanate of Sulu.
"War is not far away," said MNLF peace panel member Cesar Absalom, referring to the threat of Malaysia to forcibly evict the Royal Sultanate Army in Sabah.
The Philippine Interior and Local Government Secretary Manuel Roxas said on Tuesday that the Malaysians are running out of patience.
Roxas said that the Malaysian government has given three extensions to the deadline for Agbimuddin Kiram and his followers, who encamped at Lahad Datu for the past two weeks, to leave Sabah and return to the Philippines.
The Sultanate is no longer recognized by any state as a sovereign entity, but Malaysia has been paying token rent to the Kiram's ever since. Agbimuddin Kiram, who claimed Sabah is their home, has ignored calls from Malaysia to return to the Philippines.
Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin said the flow of commerce between Sabah and the several islands in the southern Mindanao has stopped because of tight control of movement of people between the two countries as a result of the occupation.
"The consequence of this incident is that barter trade has stopped. Prices of basic commodities in Tawi-Tawi jacked up," Gazmin said.
"Kasi and Tawi-Tawi gets its supply of basic commodities and trade its products at Lahad Datu in Sabah, which is closer than Zamboanga City," he said.
Gazmin said Kiram's defiance could result in Malaysian government crackdown against undocumented Filipinos in Sabah, which was estimated at about 800,000 and their fates are in the hands of Kiram.
Political allies of President Aquino also joined calls on Kiram to end the standoff in Sabah and consider the welfare of Filipinos, who are now stateless because Malaysia considered them illegal immigrants.
"Bringing the supposed Sabah heirs and government representatives in one table would allow discussions on the complex issues involved in the Sabah claim, including the plight of Sabah residents who have Filipino roots," Sen. Francis Escudero said.
"The immediate concern of the government should be the welfare of Filipinos who were born and raised in Sabah, which is the bigger humanitarian issue that must be addressed through diplomatic channels," he said.
"The welfare of our countrymen, who consider Sabah as their homeland, should be the focus of any government negotiation with the Malaysian government," Escudero said.
Sultan unmoved
The ailing Kiram sounded unmoved by President Beningo Aquino warning to stand down.
At a news briefing in his house in Taguig City, Kiram rejected the President's appeal for him to immediately recall his men who have been occupying a part of Sabah for nearly three weeks.
"I have already given my order to them. And they have to stay put in that area," Kiram said in a muffled voice.
He said his men would not go back home "until an arrangement has been done by our officials and the President, and if that will be arranged accordingly with a written agreement signed by the parties concerned."
Kiram said that in the last conversation he had with Agbimuddin on Monday, his younger brother told him that he and their 235 followers were firm in their decision to stay despite a food blockade ordered by the Malaysian authorities.
Asked what actions Agbimuddin and his men might take if the deadline for them to leave Sabah expired, the Sulu sultan said: "I asked them to wait for orders from me or from my [other] brothers."
Ready to be jailed
Kiram, who has been suffering from diabetes for years, said he was ready to go to jail if the government filed a case against him and members of his clan.
"It's OK with me. I'm already 74-years-old. An old man going to jail? It's OK," Kiram said. "I cannot understand what violation I made… I have always respected the Constitution. My brother went down there with his men and settled down in their own homeland. Is that a violation?"
Asked if he considered Aquino's statement a threat, he said: "Maybe that's a threat for us."
In a statement read by his daughter, Princess Jacel Kiram, the sultan reiterated that Agbimuddin and his men "will not initiate the violence… But we are prepared to defend our lives and aspirations." He said the Sabah issue "can be peacefully settled without threat, but in a diplomatic way."
"Is it hard for Malaysia to sit down in a square table and to diplomatically settle the issue on the claim? All we ask is for Malaysia to sit down with the Kirams and come up with a win-win solution," Kiram stressed.
Kiram insists he is the head of the Sulu sultanate, which once controlled parts of Borneo, including the site of the standoff. The sultanate leased the disputed area to Europeans in the 1870s.
While the sultanate's authority gradually faded as Western colonial powers exerted their influence over the region, it continued to receive lease payments for Sabah, which became part of Malaysia in 1963.
Foreign Undersecretary Jose Brillantes has flown to Kuala Lumpur to help resolve the situation.
A ship the Philippines plans to use to ferry Kiram's supporters home remains on standby in Tawi-Tawi.

Azim Zabidi [bekas Bendahari UMNO] disaman syarikat2 British RM12.4juta

Posted: 26 Feb 2013 07:22 PM PST

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 27 ― Sixty British investors have sued former Umno treasurer Datuk Seri Abdul Azim Mohd Zabidi and his IT company, Doxport Technologies Sdn Bhd, for allegedly misappropriating US$4 million (RM12.4 million) in 2009.
Their lawyer, Hasnal Rezua Merican, said today that the British investors ― based in London and comprising both male and female professionals aged between 40 and 55 years, including bankers ― filed the suit in the High Court here last Wednesday against Doxport chairman Azim, director and CEO Sivalingam Thechinamoorthy, accounts department staff Gurmeet Kaur, and the firm.
"They (the claimants) invested money into purchasing Telekom switches and equity in Doxport," Hasnal told The Malaysian Insider today.
"They were promised that the Telekom switches would be theirs and they would hold it under equity in Doxport... but documents were falsified, just to give them an appearance that the switches are running in Malaysia," he added.
Hasnal said that the 60 British citizens had invested about US$4 million into Doxport Technologies in January 2009, when Azim was Umno treasurer. Azim, who is currently the Bukit Bintang Umno division chief, was replaced by Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah in April 2009.
Hasnal said that the investors lodged a police report in 2011 after discovering that there were no such Telekom switches operating in Malaysia.
"Some documents were generated to show that the switches were receiving calls through them. All these were given to our clients to believe that the switches were operating. But finally when they came down to Malaysia, no switches were visible... So they ended up without any equity in Doxport and without any switches," he said.
The lawyer added that the investors had aimed to generate income from the traffic of calls recorded by the switches, which Doxport claimed would run in Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines.
Hasnal said the investors had come to know of Doxport after the company's lawyer approached a British citizen in the Pakistani community in London.
"The investors were duped into believing that Doxport was carrying business activities in Cambodia. On the strength of the representation, they were asked to invest. But it was found out later that Doxport was never licensed to operate anything in Cambodia," he said.
The lawyer added that the police have sent investigation papers to the Attorney-General's Chambers, noting that the investigation took 14 months.
He said that the investors had also lodged a complaint with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) in 2011, but pointed out that the regulator later decided not to press charges.
"The complaint was they (Doxport) were operating without licence. (But) the finding made by the investigators of MCMC is there seems to be no evidence that they are operating any business at all," said Hasnal.
The lawyer said that the investors were suing for the return of their investments, besides seeking general and exemplary damages.
The investors have set up a website, which said that several British lawmakers have written to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on the case.
"I call upon your government to instigate a full investigation of the company by the appropriate regulatory authority so as to restore the confidence of UK investors into the Malaysian market," Barry Gardiner, who is the Labour MP for Brent North, was quoted as saying.
"I have now written on your behalf to the Foreign Secretary and to the Prime Minister of Malaysia. I also intend to raise a question in House regarding this case," Labour MP for Tottenham David Lammy was quoted as saying.
Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin will hold a press conference later today on the case.
Azim ― who served Bank Simpanan Nasional as chairman from 1999 to 2009, and the World Savings Bank Institute as vice-president from 2006 to 2009 ― is also tied up in the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal as the chairman of Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd, the main developer of the trans-shipment project.- TMI

"Sekiranya anda memilih untuk tidak bekerjasama, tindakan undang-undang negara ini akan digunakan untuk mencapai keadilan bagi semua.
"Keadaan seperti ini tidak boleh berterusan. Jika anda seorang pemimpin sebenar pengikut anda, anda perlu bekerjasama dengan kami dalam mengarahkan mereka pulang secara aman," kata Aquino dalam satu kenyataan yang disiarkan sebuah stesen televisyen tempatan.

'This is the time' dan inilah waktunya - Azmin Ali

'This is the time' dan inilah waktunya - Azmin Ali
Rakyat Malaysia telah melalui 12 kali pilihan raya umum. Sekiranya ada satu kesempatan untuk menang, this is the time dan inilah waktunya.
Dari Perlis sampailah ke Sabah, baik petani, nelayan, guru, usahawan hinggalah para Jenderal, kini semuanya bersama Pakatan Rakyat. Kita bertuah, orang seperti Lt. Jen. (B) Dato' Abdul Ghafir turut bersama dan akan menyampaikan ucapan sebentar lagi.
Rakyat menaruh harapan yang tinggi agar Pakatan Rakyat menjadi wahana perubahan yang lebih baik buat Malaysia. Mereka mahu Pakatan Rakyat menunaikan cita-cita perubahan.
Kita perlu sedar bahawa muafakat yang kukuh ini lahir dari citra perjuangan rakyat Malaysia yang bangkit memusnahkan tembok hegemoni perkauman UMNO. Pilihan Raya Umum 2008 menyaksikan orang Cina dan India secara terang mengibarkan panji PAS. Belum pernah anak Melayu dengan berani mengibarkan panji DAP. Begitu juga belum pernah sebuah parti politik pelbagai kaum seperti KEADILAN yang mendapat dukungan sebegitu besar rakyat di negara ini.
Kita perlu siap siaga untuk mara ke medan tempur sebagai satu saf yang rapi serta tersusun sebaik sahaja semboyan perang dibunyikan.
Pertempuran kali ini adalah di antara rakyat dan elit penguasa. Antara yang mempertahankan hak dan yang melindungi kebatilan.
Saya optimis bahawa dalam pertempuran kali ini kemenangan akan bersama rakyat. Dan kini, kita telah berada di pusingan terakhir, at the last lap.
Kerana itu kita tidak boleh melakukan kesilapan kerana ia seakan mengkhianati cita-cita perubahan dan sengaja mengkhianati amanah rakyat Malaysia
Muafakat politik yang kukuh ini bertanggungjawab kepada rakyat Malaysia seluruhnya. We have the courage to be the true progressive. Kita berani mengungkapkan Agenda Ekonomi Malaysia untuk menggantikan Dasar Ekonomi Baru. We are fully committed to policies that is not based on race but on needs. Ini adalah etika muafakat Pakatan Rakyat yang sejajar dengan citra massa. Ini menjadi kewajipan kepimpinan dan anggota demi merealisasikan aspirasi rakyat.
Ikhtiyar progresif ini berhasrat memerdekakan rakyat bukan sahaja dari belenggu dasar ekonomi yang usang akan tetapi lebih bermakna kerana kita memerdekakan pemikiran yang sekian lama dijajah. Let us together dismantle racist agenda in our country.
Kita mesti berpandangan jauh. Kita mesti berjiwa besar. We must win big. Carpe diem ! We must seize the moment !
Pakatan Rakyat bukan sekadar untuk PRU ke 13 semata - semata. Muafakat kita bertunjangkan hasrat untuk melaksanakan perubahan. Muafakat Pakatan Rakyat adalah untuk menjayakan cita - cita rakyat Malaysia yang bersaudara serta ekonomi rakyat.
Hanya kemenangan hasil dari muafakat ini akan memastikan pembentukan sebuah Kerajaan kukuh. A sustainable and durable government.
Menggalas semangat bersama yang semakin kuat dan utuh ini, Pakatan Rakyat menyertai pilihan raya kali ini dengan persiapan yang begitu rapi.
Pertama, Dasar Bersama Pakatan Rakyat yang digariskan dalam Buku Jingga menjadi asas yang mengikat persefahaman dalam muafakat politik ini.
Kedua, kita luncurkan pada hari ini manifesto 'Pakatan Harapan Rakyat' yang menjadi tawaran terbaik buat masa depan negara.
Pakatan Rakyat menampilkan kepimpinan yang jelas dan berwibawa seumpama Tuan Guru Dato' Nik Abdul Aziz, YB Ustaz Abdul Hadi, YB Lim Kit Siang yang pastinya diterajui oleh Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Kepimpinan yang bersih, tidak rasuah, menolak perkauman sempit, berupaya memacu kemakmuran negara dan istiqamah dalam perjuangan adalah aset Pakatan Rakyat biarpun terpaksa membayar harga yang mahal dengan meringkuk dalam penjara.
Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim adalah the centre of gravity. Pengalaman beliau mentadbir serta hubungan baik beliau di peringkat antarabangsa dengan pimpinan negara mahupun pimpinan gerakan Islam seluruh dunia menjadi ketakutan rejim korup UMNO - BN.
Kebijakan yang digarap melalui Buku Jingga, Belanjawan Pakatan Rakyat dan hari ini kita luncurkan manifesto bersama serta dukungan kuat rakyat Malaysia membuktikan bahawa Pakatan Rakyat will dictate GE 13 with our agenda.
Bersandarkan kekuatan dan keyakinan ini, tidak perlu untuk saya bertanya are you ready?
Akan tetapi saya tampil dan berdiri dengan tekad dan berani untuk menyatakan that we are ready. We are ready to govern this nation.
Ayuh kita mara ke Putrajaya dengan iltizam untuk melakar masa depan baru demi Malaysia yang gagah !
Azmin Ali ialah Timbalan Presiden Parti Keadilan Rakyat

Berenti la dok Pembohong tu Mahadet ai ...

FEBRUARY 26, 2013
FEB 26 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad does protest too much. He says all this talk by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and the opposition about him and nepotism is slander and that he is clean and his sons are self-made businessmen.
I can only imagine that mixing around with the likes of Datuk Ibrahim Ali has made the former prime minister believe that all Malaysians have the IQ of Ibrahim.
The simple reality is that we don't need Anwar to tell us what we know about you. All we need to do is remember the crony capitalism which you promoted, bumped up IPP contracts for certain cronies, a sweetheart deal to take over the national airline by another crony (who incidentally had a string of legal suits against him by government entities miraculously settled because he knew too much about your dealings and promises to him), the bailout of Konsortium Perkapalan during the financial crisis by MISC.
Oh yes, we also remember your pathetic performance at the Royal Commission of Inquiry on the Lingam video where you suddenly had amnesia. But thankfully the commissioners saw through your act and named you and your friends (Lingam and Vincent Tan) as parties who subverted the course of justice.
Mahathir, you have never declared your assets to Malaysians. We still don't know how you bought that nice home in the Mines or why is it that the likes of Syed Mokhtar and others love lending their private jets to you or taking you on six-star holidays jaunts.
You say that your children are self-made businessmen. Can you let us know how Mokhzani became a businessman in the first place, the Tongkah deals, etc. And what about Mirzan (congrats on becoming a shareholder of San Miguel... burp). And what about young Mukhriz. By all accounts, he is not a smart chap but he does own a palatial home in Bukit Tunku.
Yes, why don't you pen the rags-to-riches story of your boys. I don't even mind if they are sold in the fiction section.
Anwar Ibrahim and the opposition are not guilty of slander: they are only guilty of telling Malaysians what fools we have been to believe your lies all these years.
The true story of Mahathir and his boys can only be unearthed after Malaysia has a change of a political system. How about it, Malaysians?

DAP buat laporan polis terhadap Najib

Posted: 26 Feb 2013 02:40 AM PST

FEBRUARY 26, 2013
GEORGE TOWN, 26 Feb — Pemimpin DAP di Pulau Pinang dan Kuala Lumpur membuat laporan polis serentak ke atas Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak atas tuduhan beliau bahawa menyokong DAP akan menyebabkan Islam akan ditindas.
Pembantu kepada setiausaha publisiti kebangsaan DAP, Zairil Khir Johari membuat laporan polis terhadap Najib di ibu pejabat polis di George Town jam 10:30 pagi tadi.
"Semakin kita menghampiri pilihan raya, hampir setiap minggu pemimpin Barisan Nasional (BN) akan mengkritik DAP dan Pakatan Rakyat menggunakan sentimen kaum atau agama yang sangat bahaya," katanya di sidang media selepas membuat laporan tersebut
"Tuduhan yang menggambarkan DAP sebagai parti anti-Islam adalah tidak benar," katanya lagi.
Zairil merujuk kepada kenyataan Najib apabila melancarkan Jelajah Janji Ditepati di Terengganu baru-baru ini.
Perdana menteri (gambar) yang dipetik kenyataannya dari The Star berkata: "Undi untuk PKR akan menghancurkan akidah, manakala undi PAS akan mengakibatkan perpecahan di kalangan umat Islam, dan undi untuk DAP akan melihat Islam akan ditindas."
Zairil mengatakan kerajaan PR Pulau Pinang yang diketuai oleh Ketua Menteri Lim Guan Eng, menunjukkan DAP bukan anti-Islam tetapi menambahkan lagi perbelanjaan untuk jabatan agama Islam peringkat negeri.
"Kerajaan negeri kini membelanjakan RM60 juta untuk jabatan agama Islam negeri setiap tahun," katanya lagi.
Zairil berkata naib pengerusi DAP Senator Dr Ariffin Omar turut membuat laporan polis ke atas Najib di Kuala Lumpur.
"Kita harapkan polis akan mengambil tindakan ke atas tuduhan tersebut tetapi jika tidak, kita akan ambil tindakan undang-undang ke atas Najib," katanya lagi.
Beliau menambah laporan polis yang diadu oleh DAP "tidak diselesaikan" kerana pihak polis enggan membuat sebarang tindakan ke atas pencetus masalah.
"Setiap kali kita ambil tindakan undang-undang, seperti kebanyakan pemimpin PR menyaman Utusan Malaysia dan menang kes RM1 juta setiap tahun tetapi mereka seolah tidak peduli," katanya lagi.

LAHAD DATU, 26 Feb - Polis memberi jaminan bahawa insiden pencerobohan kumpulan bersenjata rakyat Filipina di Kampung Tanduo, kira-kira 130km dari sini, akan ditamatkan secepat mungkin.

Tan Sri Dato' Sri Khalid juga berkata polis tidak tahu menahu mengenai dakwaan sesetengah pihak kononnya empat anggota keluarga Kiram (kerabat Kesultanan Sulu) telah ditangkap oleh pihak berkuasa.

Tan Sri Dato' Sri Khalid menjelaskan kepada pemberita bahawa insiden pencerobohan kumpulan yang mengaku Askar Diraja Kesultanan Sulu masih di bawah tanggungjawab Polis Diraja Malaysia.

Beliau berkata isu berkenaan masih ditangani sebagai isu keselamatan negara dan operasi turut melibatkan agensi keselamatan lain.

Setakat ini tidak terdapat sebarang unsur luar yang campur tangan dalam usaha polis menyelesaikan isu berkenaan dan menegaskan pihaknya tidak akan membenarkan sebarang campur tangan seperti itu menganggu urusan keselamatan negara. - BERNAMA

dari LAHAD DATU - Penceroboh enggan tinggalkan Sabah

Posted: 26 Feb 2013 12:15 AM PST

ZAMBOANGA CITY -  Anggota Tentera Diraja Kesultanan Sulu berkata mereka sedia mempertahankan diri jika Malaysia memaksa mereka keluar dari Sabah atas alasan ia sebahagian daripada tanah air mereka.

Sultan Sulu Jamalul Kiram III mengumumkan bahawa mereka tetap berkeras enggan meninggalkan Sabah walaupun kerajaan Filipina menghantar kapal kemanusiaan untuk membawa pulang kumpulan yang menceroboh Lahad Datu.

Seramai 200 anggotanya kini berada di pantai Lahad Datu, Sabah sejak 12 Februari lalu.

Dipetik portal Nation semalam, Setiausahanya, Abraham Idjirani berkata, kerajaan Filipina sendiri tidak merujuk terlebih dahulu kepada mereka untuk menghantar kapal.

"Kami sentiasa terbuka untuk mengadakan rundingan bagi menyelesaikan isu ini," katanya.

Laporan itu berkata, Raja Muda atau Abiddin Kiram, adik kepada Jamalul Kiram kini mengetuai kumpulan yang berada di Lahad Datu.

ISU LAHAD DATU : Kerajaan Perlu Tegas Pertahankan Kedaulatan Sabah - DSAI

Posted: 25 Feb 2013 11:10 PM PST

PETALING JAYA: Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim meminta kerajaan agar lebih tegas dalam isu pencerobohan kumpulan yang mendakwa tentera Kesultanan Sulu yang menetap di Kampung Tanduo, Lahad Datu sejak dua minggu lalu.
Beliau berkata, kerajaan sepatutnya mengutamakan keselamatan rakyat dan kedaulatan negeri Sabah kerana ia merupakan perkara utama berbanding membela penceroboh yang enggan meninggalkan Lahad Datu.
"Puak penceroboh sepatutnya dihantar pulang. Kerajaan sepatutnya tidak bertolak ansur dalam soal kedaulatan negara kerana ia melibatkan keselamatan negara," katanya pada sidang media di ibu pejabat Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) pada Selasa.
Dua minggu lalu, kumpulan penceroboh yang dianggotai lebih 100 orang itu diketuai oleh Raja Muda Azzimudie Kiram, adik kepada Sultan Sulu, Jamalul Kiram III, masuk ke Sabah dan tinggal di Kampung Tanduo yang terletak kira-kira 100 kilometer daripada Lahad Datu.
Kumpulan berkenaan sebelum ini menuntut pengiktirafan sebagai tentera Sulu daripada kerabat Sultan Sulu, meminta agar komuniti Sulu, yang telah lama berada di Sabah tidak dihantar pulang.
Dalam perkembangan lain, Anwar berkata Pakatan Rakyat tidak mempunyai sebarang masalah untuk menandatangani Ikrar Integriti Pilihan Raya seperti yang dilakukan oleh Barisan Nasional (BN) namun mereka mahu ada penambahbaikan dalam soal membanteras rasuah.
"Ini bukan gimik politik. Kita sedia berbincang dengan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia mengenai garis panduan dan penambahbaikan yang lebih telus dan adil sekiranya mahu menjadikan ikrar integriti itu satu perkara yang wajib," katanya.
Rabu lalu, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak dan pimpinan tertinggi BN menandatangani Ikrar Integriti Pilihan Raya sebagai komitmen terhadap usaha membanteras gejala rasuah menjelang Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 (PRU-13).
