It's private, correct?

Najib denies allegations of abuse, says SMS was private
By Shannon Teoh (Malaysian Insider, 14 October 2008)

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 14 - Datuk Seri Najib Razak has denied any abuse of power in relation to the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder investigations and the government's acquisition of 12 Eurocopter helicopters.

But he did not deny the text message exchanges between him and a lawyer at the heart of the allegations were genuine. He said the SMS exchanges were a private matter.

"Why do I need to comment? There is no abuse of power," the deputy prime minister said.

Malaysia Today carried a report detailing what it alleged was an exchange of text messages between Najib and Datuk Shafee Abdullah, the prominent lawyer who represented Abdul Razak Baginda, the close associate of Najib who was eventually charged with abetting two police officers in the murder of Altantuya in 2006.

In one SMS, Najib allegedly tells the lawyer that Razak his advisor "will face a tentative charge but all is not lost".

Malaysia Today said this message raises some questions about Najib's role in the case.

"Why did he mention "tentative" charge and that "all is not lost" for RB (Razak Baginda)? How would Najib know this before Razak was charged? These are important questions which will have ramifications, not just on this case but far beyond," a posting on the website said.

However, Najib would neither confirm nor deny that the supposed SMS exchange between him and Shafee were genuine.

"It doesn't really matter. The important thing is there is no abuse of power," he said. "No need, no need, it is private. Whatever it is, the prime minister has said enough," he continued in the same tone.

"Why should it be of major concern? The important thing is if there is abuse of power and, if you read it carefully, there is no abuse of power, period," Najib reasoned .

On the issue of the RM2.3 billion Eurocopter deal claimed by the opposition to cost more than other tenders, he merely stated that a full explanation would be given in Parliament.

"Whatever the opposition said is not true," he said dismissively. "We will give you the facts later."


Najib: "It is private".

Lingam: "Correct, correct, correct!"

Dr M, they are all jokers, no?

From page N8, The Star, Monday 13 October 2008:-


KUALA LUMPUR: The Cheras Umno division has started a fund to help Utusan Malaysia defend itself against a RM30mil defamation lawsuit filed by Seputeh MP Teresa Kok.

Kicking off the fund with a RM20,000 contribution, division head Datuk Syed Ali Al Habshee said the Tabung Azan would also be used to assist mosques and suraus that needed money to buy loudspeakers for the purpose of the azan (call to prayer).

“Teresa has challenged the honour of Malays by suing Utusan Malaysia as it is a newspaper owned by the Malays.

“Challenging the Malays is similar to challenging Umno,” he said in urging other divisions to contribute to the fund.

On Thursday, Kok sued Utusan Melayu Sdn Bhd and the paper’s columnist Zaini Hassan over an article that allegedly defamed her.

Kok was said to have petitioned a mosque in Puchong to reduce the volume for the azan, something which she has strongly denied.

The mosque has also stated she was not involved in such a move.

Syed Ali said questioning the azan meant questioning the honour of Malays and Islam.


WHO is urging the Malays and UMNO to take up a blind racist stand against Teresa Kok in particular and the non-Malay community in general?

WHO is questioning the azan?

WHO is questioning the honour of Malays and Islam in Malaysia?

WHO is playing with fire with the not-so-subtle loudspeaker agenda?


After Ahmad Ismail, now we have SYED ALI AL HABSHEE.

WHO next?

The fire is being stoked and fanned in Peninsular Malaysia.

And the likes of Koh Tsu Koon, Ong, Ong & Ong will just stand back and watch in silence?

Is it desperation or sheer stupidity?

What a shameful piece of revelation ...

It is Datuk Shah Rukh Khan

MALACCA, Friday 10 October 2008:

Bollywood idol Shah Rukh Khan is a Datuk. The heartthrob will be receiving his Datukship from the Malacca Yang Dipertua Negeri, Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob in conjunction with his birthday tomorrow. Listed as an artiste from Dreamz Unlimited in the list of recipients, Shah Rukh will be receiving the Darjah Mulia Seri Melaka (DMSM).

He is among 77 recipients of the title.

Shah Rukh, 43, is a highly acclaimed Indian actor who works in Bollywood films, as well as film producer and television host.

He has starred in several box-office movies and won awards throughout his career.


What is the purpose of the above exercise?

To show that Malaysia BOLEH?

Do you know, we have REAL heroes who continue to be treated like dirt by the Government of Malaysia under the leadership of UMNO dressed in Barisan Nasional colours?

Read this posting by blogger 7th Rangers :-

It is sad that Malaysia treats some of it's soldiers shoddily

about the heartfelt story of Police Inspector/Army Captain Mukhtiar Singh s/o Sodagar Singh.

What an utter SHAME!!!

But the saddest part is, do the leaders from UMNO even CARE?
