TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

CORRUPTION IN MALAYSIA 180

1. There has always been corruption in Malaysia but for years after independence the scale was small. A country where corruption is rampant can never be developed. But Malaysia developed at a good rate. 2. At the time of independence Malaysia was a poor third world country. All development work was done by the Government ...

PROTON 128

1. Recently, I officiated the first firing of the new engine for Proton. It is not often that an automotive company produces a new engine. Proton’s Campro engine is now more than 10 years old. Obviously it is no longer suitable for today’s cars. So the production of a new engine for Proton is something ...

MALAYSIA’S SHAME 131

1. There was a time not so very long ago when Malaysia was admired for successfully raising itself from an impoverished third world country into a stable newly industrialised country. No one doubted that its announced intention to become a developed country by 2020 would be achieved. 2. But today when we go abroad we ...

AG TO AG 48

1. Following upon the Malaysian A.G.’s (Tan Sri Mohamad Apandi Ali) decision that the report of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission showed there were no wrong doings by the Prime Minister in relation to the 2.6 billion Ringgit and 42 million Ringgit in his personal accounts, perhaps coincidentally, the French legal authorities have initiated legal action ...

QUO VADIS MALAYSIA 76

1.​In Malaysia the Attorney General decides if a law has been broken or not. That decision is in fact a judgement. The A.G. is both a judge and a prosecutor. This in itself is an injustice. 2.​I admit I was not shocked when the A.G. decided that the report by the MACC does not show ...

THE TPP 94

1. The International Trade and Industry (MITI) Minister says it will take two years to amend 26 laws to meet TPP requirements. 2. This is a clear admission that the TPP limits Malaysia’s freedom to make laws deemed necessary for the country. These laws have been passed by the Malaysian Parliament apparently because they were ...

TUN RAZAK 37

1. It is difficult to think that 40 years have passed since the demise of Tun Razak, the much respected and beloved second Prime Minister of independent Malaysia . 2. Watching the T.V documentary on his life and times, I cannot help but feeling sad. Those were great days. Leaders then were dedicated, bent on ...

DISMISSALS AND REPLACEMENTS 41

1. The Malaysian Insider recently reported the MACC Chief Abu Kassim might be replaced, basing it on “source”. 2. Abu Kassim has some health problem but he himself says that he hopes to retire at 60, the mandatory retirement age. Obviously he does not think that his health would force him to retire any time ...

TPPA 172

1. The Government could not care less for whatever opposition that is voiced by anyone in Malaysia or abroad against signing the TPPA. It will go ahead and sign. 2. The MITI Minister assures us that we can get out of the agreement anytime we want. 3. Yes indeed we can. But it is not ...

THE PARIS ATTACK 65

1. Everyone, certainly every Muslim must condemn the dastardly attack by Muslims in Paris when more than 100 innocent people were killed. It was not one incident but it consisted of a series of coordinated attacks in different parts of Paris. It certainly gave Islam and the Muslims a bad image. It practically justified the ...
