The DAP and PAS are quite clear where they stand on the hudud issue.

  • ‘Why must 1MDB park RM4b in Singapore bank?’ | theSundaily

    PETALING JAYA: A veteran journalist today questioned the need for 1Malaysia Development Bhd to park RM4 billion in a small private bank in Singapore that has also suffered millions of dollars in losses, instead of repaying its debts to Maybank and RHB Capital. Datuk A. Kadir Jasin, the former group editor-in-chief of The New Straits Times, said in his blog (The Scribe) that it is suspicious that 1MDB would choose BSI Bank Limited Singapore when government-linked firms like Khazanah Nasional Bhd and EPF normally placed their funds in large local and international banks. "Keeping the money in Singapore is mysterious enough and keeping it with a private bank makes it suspicious," Kadir said.

  • Really, GST is to help pay salaries, pension for civil servants? – TK Chua - The Malaysian Insider

    International Trade and Industry Minister, Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed, said the goods and services tax (GST) is to diversify revenue source and to help pay for salaries and pension of public servants. In one stroke, it is hope that GST will gain the support of more than a million public servants and a few hundred thousand pensioners. Also, by stating that GST is to diversify revenue sources, Mustapha has also implied that present revenue source is too narrow and insufficient to cover the increased expenditure of the government.

    BANGKOK: As the battle over the behaviour of Chinese tourists rages on Thai social media, one combatant has come away with tears in her eyes. Pin-up model Duangjai “Jha” Phichitamphon found herself at the centre of a controversy last week after a video of her criticising Chinese tourists went viral. Jha recorded the video at the airport in Jeju, South Korea, where unruly Chinese tourists pushed past her and other polite Thais in what up until then had been an orderly queue at the tax refund counter. Being jostled left and right, Jha’s temper rises as the video goes on and her language becomes increasingly impolite.
