    I salute you as the elder statesman of Malaysia who has raised a consistent voice over the years. Today we are in the cusp of a political crisis and yours is the only lonely voice calling for a Malaysian solution. Pakatan Rakyat, whichever way we look at it, is no longer a viable reality. The DAP and PAS are quite clear where they stand on the hudud issue.

  • Beware of criticising Chinese tourist - Regional | The Star Online

    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.

  • 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.

  • ‘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.

  • Sarawak Report ‘under attack’ | theSundaily

    KUALA LUMPUR: Sarawak Report, a website founded by investigative journalist Clare Rewcastle-Brown that has been carrying investigative expose in relation to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) fund, has suddenly found itself "under attack" in the past week. According to the website, it has recently been subjected to a number of aggressive campaigns to force it to remove photographs of certain individuals which it had linked to alleged abuse of 1MDB funds as corroborative evidence. The story that the hackers wanted removed most from the website was about the reportedly double life of Abu Dhabi's Aabar Fund chairman, Khadem al-Qubaisi. The article had focused on the fact that the fund, which has done a number of heavily criticised deals with 1MDB, had received a payment of over US$20 million from Good Star Limited – a company controlled by millionaire Jho Low, which the website had identified as the recipient of the secret US$700 million "loan repayment", made supposedly to PetroSaudi from 1MDB.
