I hail the decision by PM YAB Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on the 27th February 2012 that “MACC GETS RIGHT TO VIEW ASSETS DECLARATION OF TOP LEADERSHIP”.

It is therefore very clear that all Politicians and including government servants must declare their assets to MACC or MACC has the right to demand their declaration.

I wish to recapitulate, some so called Chinese leaders like Y.B. VK. Liew’s irrational stand, that it is inappropriate for MACC to keep records of properties of ministers and deputy ministers. PM YAB Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s decision is loud and clear. May I remind YB VK Liew and YB Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri to adhere the instruction given by BN’s paramount leader PM YAB Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

If you still have much to hide, then quit. Needless to say, YB VK Liew and other politicians should be reminded that they are elected by the people to serve in public office and their salaries come from law-abiding taxpayers. Therefore they are accountable to the people at all times and can be made answerable to MACC when needed. People are their bosses.

Please follow PM YAB Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s instruction.

Najib: MACC chief to gain full access to assets of ministers, deputies

Dear Chief Commissioner MACC,

Congrats, you are gaining ground. MACC needs to move forward to achieve full Authority in Investigation / Prosecution.

This stage will soon surface. Otherwise , the common perception is, MACC - 100% under AG's Direction - not independent at all.

Move On.
PUTRAJAYA, Feb 27 — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) chief commissioner will have full access to information on assets owned by all members of the federal administration, the prime minister said today. 
 Datuk Seri Najib Razak said all current ministers and deputy ministers had personally declared their assets to him via statutory declarations (SD).

“I agreed with the recommendation made by the advisory panel of the MACC that the chief commissioner be granted full access to documents on assets of any member of the administration,” he said today.

“I would like to explain that the Barisan Nasional government has practised the process of declaring assets earlier than anyone else.

“Every member of the administration is required to declare his/her as well as [the] family’s assets to the prime minister,” added Najib.

The MACC said last month that spouses and family members of Cabinet ministers may soon be required to declare their assets to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to ensure integrity in the government, and that the PM had agreed to the recommendation “in principle.”

But de facto law minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz has spoken against such a move, saying that a declaration to the PM should suffice.

Yes, the AG must act to charge NFC directors

COMMENT The director of Bukit Aman’s Commercial Crime Investigation Department Syed Ismail Syed Azizan is a brave man. Why?

Because he has said clearly and categorically that there is enough evidence to charge the directors of the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) with criminal breach of trust.

I like a brave Malaysian, especially if he or she is a civil servant. I believe that it’s only when civil servants show courage and integrity that the rakyat can hope to get justice and fair play in their dealings with the government.

NONESyed Ismail (left) knows that the police, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission - or any enforcement agency in the country for that matter - do not have the power to lay charges regardless of the evidence.

That is the prerogative of the attorney-general. Despite this, Syed Ismail has been willing to tell the people there is in fact enough evidence to charge someone.

This is an act of courage. It is not the action of someone with an ulterior motive, as has been suggested by the family involved in the NFC.

In my years at the Bar and in government, I often heard that “such-and-such a case was presented to the Attorney-General’s Office but no action was taken”.

No one knows the actual reason for this inaction - we are told only that under the constitution, the attorney-general has absolute discretion whether or not to charge someone.

“Lim-Chua Debate a Waste of Time”

KUALA LUMPUR, 20 FEBRUARY, 2012: The President of the Federation of Malaysia Peng Clan Association Tan Sri Robert Phang Miow Sin said that the debate between MCA president Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng last Saturday was a waste of time.

Phang said that the debate diverted from its original topic and both speakers used the platform to repeat what they have already said previously.“Both of them aggravated from the main topic of the debate,” said Phang when contacted by Malaysian Digest today.Commenting further on the much-awaited debate, Phang said DAP has nothing to lose, contrasting the MCA which had to put everything into the debate to remain relevant to the rakyat.

“The debate should have been addressed by the MCA more accordingly. After the debate, the audiences and also the Chinese community all over Malaysia were left puzzled. Many Chinese are asking among themselves, ‘where do we go from this debate?’” said Phang.

Phang, who is also former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) panel, said Chua had failed to highlight the problems faced by the Chinese community and what MCA will do to apprehend their problems.

“Instead, Soi Lek kept on repeating things that he had said before this during the debate,” he said.
He opines that neither speaker emerged as the winner of any sort from the debate though both had succeeded in “insulting the intelligence of the Chinese”.

“The Chinese are well known for being quiet, but that doesn’t mean you can insult their intelligence just like what both of the speakers did during the debate.“Both of them have not emerged as winners. For me, the rakyat is the winner from the debate,” said Phang.

Phang also criticized the attitude of the MCA supporters during the debate which described as arrogant.
“MCA supporters showed no respect to the speaker (Lim),” said Phang.“They booed and jeered every time the speaker (Lim) was trying to talk. This is not good. It shows that they are arrogant,” Phang added.

Phang however said that, if there is going to be another round of debate, he hopes that the debate will bring a much better-defined topic.

I forward herewith my article on enhancing crime prevention to building safer cities, which I shared during my speech at the International Conference on Principled Policing on the 13th and 14th February 2012 at Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa.

A point to note, I wish to share a very famous Chinese philosophy - WHEN THE UPPER BEAM IS NOT PUT RIGHT, THE LOWER BEAM WILL NEVER BE RIGHT”. This is a golden rule to us all, more so the discipline forces. The new regime and leadership of PDRM must truly commit and show good example to move forward.


1.1.In every part of the world, today’s government are challenged by many and varied-responsibilities. In Malaysia, the government of PM Najib Razak is burdened not only with the tasks of just governing the country politically and economically. The government is also held responsible for preventing crime and fostering a sense of public safety.

1.2.Since the PDRM is the prime law enforcement agency, the incidents of crime is blamed on the PDRM. That is fully justified because of the PDRM is tasked with maintaining public safety and order under the Police Act.

1.3.Bad Perception – can be created. Let me share the actual incident.

1.4. The image of the PDRM is most important. Under the previous Inspector General of Police (IGP), both real crimes and crime rates were high. The Police image was at its worst. Various allegations have been made against the former IGP , not least the fact that six (6) rank and file policemen were charged for exposing the former IGP’s complicity in the “ALONG loan shark issues.

1.5.For the first time in Malaysian history, the IGP’s name was openly exposed in affidavits filed by a known criminal and RR detainee. In the end, the PDRM’s Director of the Criminal Investigations (CID) was charged and the criminal was released. The former IGP even gave evidence against Dato’ Ramli Yusuff to contradict the evidence by all the other Police witnesses. In the end, the former IGP was condemned by the court as an incredible witness whose evidence is not to be believed which is the legal euphemism for calling someone a “LIAR”. These were the black days for PDRM, and had definitely caused bad perception for PDRM.

1.6.In the light of the above foregoing, unfortunately and inevitably, the perception on PDRM is not good and healthy. It was made worst further, there was no concern or love from the top leader to the fellow officers. Creating a very bad perception for PDRM. It has definitely demoralize the PDRM officers.

1.7.That is the scenario when the new IGP Tan Sri Ismail Omar took over leadership of PDRM. The government made crime reduction as one the National Key Result Areas (NKRA) and we now see the results. Under the new IGP, crime rates are reported to be declining, yet it seems the fear of crime has not abated. The former IGP even gave a press statement doubting if the declining crime rate statistics is genuine or accurate. I see that as the former IGP being jealous and a sour grape of the achievements of IGP Ismail Omar and his Deputy IGP Dato’ Seri Khalid Abu Bakar. That is not healthy. A former IGP with such a bad image should not undermine his successor’s achievements.
