Reference is made to my Open Letter to our Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak (21st July 2014).

On the 21st of July 2014, I have written an Open Letter to our Prime Minister YAB Dato’
Seri Najib Tun Razak concerning the MH370 and MH17 tragedies.

At that same time, I also highlighted to YAB to kindly take into consideration the feelings
of the bereaved families of those who have lost their loved ones in the recent tragedies. I have boldly suggested that the Government tone down the festive celebration for Hari Raya Aidil Fitri in time to come.

Although Hari Raya Aidil Fitri is a great celebration for all Muslims, at the same time, the
feelings of the affected families must be considered. We must be very sympathetic and understanding towards these families who are still mourning the lost of their loved ones.

YAB Dato’ Seri Najib, you are truly a very understanding, considerate, loving and a warm leader who always touches base with the feelings of the citizens.  Great of YAB as the Prime Minister, YAB have on 25th July 2014 announced cancellation of the Putrajaya Hari Raya Aidil Fitri Open House which was to be held on the first day of Hari Raya Aidil Fitri – A very timely and appreciated decision.

Salutions to YAB, Our Great Prime Minister.

We will definitely continue to pray for the bereaved families,YAB and YAB’s family good
health and well-being. May Almighty God bless our nation.

RAKYAT DIMINTA HARGAI USAHA KERAJAAN JAGA KEDAULATAN NEGARA – ROBERT PHANG

SEMPORNA, (24 Julai) — Malaysia dibawah pimpinan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak berusaha bersungguh-sungguh untuk menjaga kedaulatan negara daripada dicerobohi penjenayah rentas sempadan, kata Pengerusi Yayasan Kebajikan Sosial Tan Sri Robert Phang.

Oleh itu, katanya rakyat negara ini seharusnya menghargai usaha dan menyokong pelbagai langkah yang dilakukan kerajaan bagi memperkukuhkan lagi keselamatan khususnya di Zon Selamat Timur Sabah (ESSZOne).

“Kerajaan telah melakukan tindakan bijak dengan menstruktur ESSCom (Kawasan Keselamatan Khas Pantai Timur Sabah) dengan melantik pegawai berkebolehan dan berpengalaman luas untuk menjaga keselamatan perairan negeri ini daripada dicerobohi.

“Kita rakyat mesti menyokong usaha ini dengan memberikan maklumat bagi membantu kerajaan mengekang jenayah penculikan (untuk wang tebusan),” katanya selepas menyampaikan sumbangan sebanyak RM20,000 kepada balu anggota polis Marin Koperal Ab Rajah Jamuan, Salamah Ahmad pada majlis berbuka puasa anjuran yayasan itu dan ESSCom, di sini, malam tadi.

Pada 12 Julai lepas, Ab Rajah, 32, mati ditembak kumpulan lelaki yang berpakaian hitam, seluar celoreng dan bersenjata berat ketika mangsa sedang meronda di sebuah Resort, Pulau Mabul bersama rakan setugas Konstabel Zakiah Aleip, 26, yang kemudian diculik ke perairan negara jiran.

Dalam hal ini, Robert menyeru syarikat korporat supaya tampil membantu
keluarga yang memerlukan bantuan bagi meringankan beban dan penderitaan mereka.

Beliau turut menyatakan kebimbangannya terhadap penglibatan “orang dalam”
yang mempermudahkan penjenayah melakukan jenayah termasuk penculikan dengan
memberikan maklumat pergerakan pasukan keselamatan.

Turut hadir, Pengarah Bahagian Perisikan Keselamatan ESSCom DCP Datuk Ahmad
Nadzer, Pegawai Daerah Semporna Dr Chaco Bullah dan Komander Pasukan Gerakan
Marin ESSCom SAC Abdul Manaf Othman.

Widow of slain cop in Mabul gets RM20,000

Salamah Ahmad, the widow of marine police Corporal Abdul Rajah Jamuan who was killed at the recent Mabul island ambush, received RM20,000 aid from the Social Care Foundation.

Social Care Foundation chairperson Robert Phang handed the contribution to Salamah at a break-fast function organised jointly by the foundation and the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (Esszone) last night.

On July 12, Abd Rajah, 32, was killed in an exchange of fire with eight gunmen, believed to be from Southern Philippines, at the Mabul Water Bungalows Resort on Pulau Mabul, off Semporna while his colleague, Zakiah Aleip, 26, was kidnapped.

Robert Phang also urged other corporate bodies to come forward and assist families that need assistance.

He also expressed concern with the presence of 'insiders' or informers who provide information of the security forces to the intruders.

"The government is working hard to ensure the safety of the country, so we as the people of the country must also play a role in assisting the government's efforts.

"We also welcome Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's initiative to restructure the Eastern Sabah Security Command (Esscom)."

AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR PRIME MINISTER YAB DATO’ SERI NAJIB TUN RAZAK

Hail, YAB Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, you are a great Malaysian Prime Minister and Statesman.

Following the missing MH370 plus the recent MH17 tragedy, the whole world has witnessed that YAB is very rational, strong and decisive in what subsequent action to be taken.

It is now an open fact, that even our PAKATAN, the opposition party, has strongly expressed the support solidly behind YAB’s leadership and commitment. Undoubtedly, Malaysians overall have been convinced that YAB is truly a great leader of all Malaysians. Very voluntarily all Malaysians will come forward to establish the only absolute solidarity and support needed in this hour of crisis.

In view of these painful tragedies, I boldly suggest that we should down play whatever celebration for this coming Hari Raya Aidil Fitri in time to come. Although this is a great celebration for all Muslims, at the same time, the feelings of the bereaved families of those who have lost their loved ones in the MH370 plus MH17 tragedies must be taken into consideration. We have to be very sympathetic and understanding towards their feelings.


YAB is truly the great leader of Malaysia. Let us all, unite solidly to establish our support to YAB and your Government. God Bless YAB and Malaysia.

Tan Sri Datuk Robert Phang Miow Sin.
