SELAMAT JALAN WIRA NEGARA, TAN SRI YUEN YUET LENG


“I am Malay, I am Indian and I am also a Chinese. If someone talk bad about the Malay – it is like that someone is hurting one part of my body….”

Beliau adalah antara watak penting dalam PDRM yang melumpuhkan pengaruh komunis di bumi Malaysia.

Pada beberapa kesempatan, Yuet Leng telah menyamar sebagai pengganas komunis. Dia masuk ke dalam hutan dan menyusup ke dalam kelompok pengganas, penyergapan, pertempuran.

Biarpun, dari segi fizikalnya Yuet Leng seorang Cina namun beliau sendiri mengakui bahawa dalam dirinya mengalir jiwa Melayu dan India yang sangat menebal yang mana semuanya berlaku sejak beliau menjadi anggota polis.

''Jika boleh dibelah badan saya pasti anda akan melihat ia terbahagi kepada tiga, Melayu, Cina dan India. Jiwa saya begitu dekat dengan tiga bangsa ini kerana saya banyak belajar memahami adat dan budaya mereka ketika menyertai polis.

''Dalam polis tidak ada istilah bangsa dan kaum. Kami berjuang atas satu pasukan demi mempertahankan Malaya daripada ancaman komunis,'' katanya

Ada kisah yang lebih mengejutkan mengenai anak jati Perak ini, apabila selepas 31 tahun barulah doktor dapat menemui adanya peluru tertanam di dadanya.

''Pengganas komunis banyak kali cuba membunuh saya, tetapi saya tidak melarikan diri. Malah, selepas bersara pada 1984 komunis masih mahu membunuh saya.

Bekas Ketua Polis Negara, Tun Hanif Omar mencadangkan supaya saya berhijrah ke negara lain.

''Pada mulanya saya bersetuju, tetapi kemudian memberitahu Tun Hanif, mengapa saya perlu melarikan diri? Malaysia adalah tempat saya dibesarkan,'' katanya

Yuet Leng menghembuskan nafasnya yang terakhir pagi tadi dalam usia 88 tahun. Sesungguhnya kita sebagai rakyat Malaysia sangat terhutang budi padanya.

SELAMAT JALAN TAN SRI, SALUTE!

Sarawak is a land of empty promises by federal leaders

As the state election draws nearer, many federal ministers will be coming to Sarawak to help the state BN in this campaigns. They will not come “empty handed” as they will be bringing along promises and pledges of projects. What is of greater concern to Sarawakians is that some of the earlier projects promised before […]

Dr. Jeffrey to Continue to lead STAR

KOTA KINABALU - “YB Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan will stay with STAR to lead the fight for Sabah rights and freedom despite the temptation to be with Parti Cinta Sabah (PCS),” said Guandee Kohoi, Deputy Secretary-General of STAR in a press statement released in response to media reports that Dr. Jeffrey had declined to helm PCS amidst allegations that STAR is unable to open branches and recruit members.

Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan wants to consistent as he stood and won the Bingkor State seat on a STAR ticket in PRU-13.

He has been consistent in his struggle for Sabah rights and has not wavered since the 1980s despite being imprisoned under the draconian ISA for 2-1/2 years in the early 1990s.   His struggle for Sabah and highlighting of Sabah rights including Sabah’s entitlement of the 40% net revenue derived from Sabah are now noticeable.  

Thanks to Dr. Jeffrey (right) and his dedicated team under the United Borneo Front and STAR Sabah, including many teachers and others who have made personal sacrifices, they have awakened and enlightened the people in Sabah and Sarawak to their State rights.

The fight for Sabah rights are now beginning to be voiced by other political parties both in government and in the opposition.   These rights are now receiving the attention of the federal government with a Special Committee to be formed to study the return of the 40% net revenue entitlement and the devolution of powers to Sabah and Sarawak under the return of autonomy to the Borneo States.

STAR is a local party fighting for the rights of the Borneo States in Malaysia.

Dr. Jeffrey believes that the future of Sabah lies together with Sarawak and that the two Borneo States must work together to achieve the best results.  

It is not true that STAR cannot open branches or register members.  

STAR’s party constitution is unique and unconventional yet simple.   Under its constitution, there is no need to register divisions or branches.   It is purely an in-house administrative matter and free from hassles and legal compliances with the Registrar of Societies as had been faced by so many conventional political parties including Umno, MIC, DAP and even LDP in Sabah in recent times.

STAR is actually an NGO-oriented party in Sabah and is independent of STAR in Sarawak and derives its authority and power from the party constitution and its establishment is approved by the party’s Supreme Council where Dr. Jeffrey is a Deputy President with other representatives from STAR Sabah.

He also believes in uniting all Sabahans rather than just a particular race or community.  He is not worried about PCS which is his brainchild as STAR and PCS are both members of the United Sabah Alliance (US) or Gabungan Sabah.

Sabah rights transcends race, religion and creed and Sabahans need to be united to achieve the return of their autonomy and State rights as promised in the formation of Malaysia.   

It can be seen that the federal government and BN led by Umno are using race and religion to divide Sabahans.  This division ultimately dilutes the support and the fight for the restoration of Sabah rights including ownership rights to its oil and gas resources which have been illegitimately seized by Petronas and the federal government since 1976.

As such, all local parties should together under the Sabah alliance in order to win the next election and form the Third Force and the next Sabah government which will be a major step towards restoring Sabah’s rights and autonomy in Malaysia. 

We cannot allow Malayan political parties to fight over Sabah to control its wealth and resources as if Sabah is just a piece of lifeless and brainless property as being a “fixed deposit” to Umno or to treat Sabahans as fools to help them control Putrajaya and the federal government.

No sign of Mud Challenge organisers

KOTA KINABALU - A total of 12 police reports have been lodged against the organisers of the 10-kilometre Borneo Mud Challenge which failed to take place on Sunday.

A participant, who spoke on behalf of her team called "Team Burutak", said they paid RM704 as registration fee for a team of six on July 28. "We were supposed to collect our race pack at Terminal 1 on Sept 25 and Sept 26, but there was nobody there to hand us our race pack," she said.

She said the event was supposed to take place at the Putatan Municipal field yesterday (Sunday), but there was no sign of the organisers or the said race at the venue.

She claimed that their efforts in contacting the organisers failed and that even the BMC Facebook page had been deactivated.

A survey of the said venue at about 7am on Sunday showed it empty with no signs of activity.

Meanwhile, State Commercial Crime Investigation Department Chief Supt Md Razif Alang Mat Jaya, when contacted, did not elaborate except to say that investigations are being done to identify the owner of the bank account to which cash was deposited into.

He said they are still waiting for information from the bank concerned, adding that the case is being investigated under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating.

"To date, we have received a total of 12 police reports related to the case," he said.

It was reported that the Borneo Mud Challenge (BMC), organised by Eco Extreme Borneo Sdn Bhd with cooperation of Team Karabaw Martial Arts and Fitness gym, will make its first appearance on Sunday (Sept 27) in Penampang.

Malaysia's 1MDB says not contacted by foreign investigators


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's troubled strategic investment fund 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) has not been contacted by any foreign investigators over allegations of mismanagement and corruption, its president Arul Kanda told Reuters on Tuesday (Sep 29).

"In terms of the Swiss investigations or the Singaporean investigations or the FBI investigations, 1MDB has not been contacted by any of those authorities," said Kanda, who was hired from Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank in January to conduct a strategic review of the state-owned fund, which owns mostly power and property assets.

The fund, which has Prime Minister Najib Razak as chairman of its advisory board, has amassed debt of more than US$11 billion, engulfing Najib in a political storm amid allegations at home and abroad of graft and financial mismanagement at the fund. 1MDB has denied all the allegations.

Singapore's police said in July they had frozen two bank accounts as part of an investigation linked to 1MDB.

"As far as I am aware, none of our accounts have been frozen," Kanda, 39, said at his office when asked about its Singapore accounts.

Swiss authorities said at the end of August they had opened criminal proceedings against two 1MDB executives for suspected corruption and money laundering. The Swiss froze several tens of millions of dollars at Swiss banks in conjunction to the probe.

The growing controversy has battered Malaysian markets; the ringgit has lost a quarter of its value against the dollar this year, making it Asia's worst performing currency, and Malaysia's bonds have also fallen.

Ratings agencies have said they would be concerned if there were signs of broader policymaking being affected by the crisis, with Fitch warning it could downgrade the outlook on Malaysia's sovereign debt.

ASSET SALES ON TRACK

Kanda said some media reports had been politically motivated to undermine Najib.

"Clearly there are other agendas being pushed forward; it's clear on the political front, of course, and I think that's now very apparent what each different group is trying to achieve," he said.

Najib has faced criticism from the public and within his party after the Wall Street Journal reported in July that local investigators looking into allegations of graft and financial mismanagement at 1MDB found that about $670 million was deposited in Najib's private bank accounts.

Reuters has not verified the report.

Najib has denied taking any money for personal gain, and Malaysia's anti-graft unit said the amount was given by a donor from the Middle East. It would not name the donor. 1MDB has denied transferring funds to Najib, and an interim government report said it found nothing suspicious.

Kanda, a trained barrister who has experience in restructuring and corporate finance, concluded early in his tenure that 1MDB should sell many of its assets to cut debt. He said on Tuesday that process was on track.

The selling of assets in power unit Edna Global Energy Bhd is a major plank of those efforts.

Kanda said asset sales planned in the coming weeks would put 1MDB in a positive cash position from early 2016.

1MDB was established in 2008 as the Terengganu Investment Authority with 10 billion ringgit to manage oil royalty payments to the resources-rich northern state of Terengganu.

When Najib came to power in 2009 he renamed it 1MDB and turned it into a fully fledged investment fund. 1MDB expanded by purchasing power assets and large plots of land in the capital and other local regions, racking up debt until it plunged to a loss last year.

Abu Dhabi's International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC) agreed in May to provide 1MDB with US$1 billion in cash, allowing the fund to repay a US$975 million loan to a global banking syndicate.

The Abu Dhabi firm also agreed to assume US$3.5 billion of 1MDB debt and forgive an undisclosed amount of debt owed to IPIC by 1MDB, in exchange for assets that have not been named.

1MDB plans to use a US$1.4 billion deposit it placed with IPIC as collateral for the deal, Kanda said.

Kanak-Kanak Tanpa Kerakyatan Masih Berleluasa Di Sabah?


Di cela-cela kegairahan aktivis Sabah For Sabah mahukan kerajaan memperbaharui kad perkenalan khas untuk rakyat Sabah, terdapat masalah dalaman lagi dinamik yang mungkin lebih besar masalah nya kalau tidak ditangani dalam kadar yang segera.
Masalah yang dimaksudkan ia lah kanak-kanak tanpa kerakyatan yang masih berleluasa di negeri ini. Terutama sekali di bandar besar saperti Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan dan Tawau.
Kanak-kanak ini lahir kebanyakan nya dari ibu-ibu yang bukan warganegara manakala bapa mereka sama ada warganegara Malaysia ataupun disebaliknya.
Masalah bermula bilamana ibu bapa kanak-kanak ini tidak mendaftar perkhawinan mereka dengan Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara walaupun diantara satu ibu bapa mereka diiktiraf sebagai warganegara Malaysia.
Justeru masih terdapat ramai  kanak-kanak yang lahir di Sabah tetapi tidak mempunyai apa-apa dokumen pengenalan diri.
Mungkin isu dianggap  perkara sebagai kecil oleh sesetengah pihak, tetapi dalam jangka panjang ia boleh bertukar menjadi 'duri dalam daging' jika mereka tidak diurus dengan sepenuh nya.
Dalampada itu Deklarasi Hak Kanak-kanak 1959 PBB, menyatakan bahawa semua kanak2 tanpa mengira status kewarganegaraan berhak menerima penjagaan, pndidikan dan perlindungan di negara tersebut.

Sulu ‘crown prince’ vows to drop Sabah claim

KOTA KINABALU - A so-called crown prince of the Sulu sultanate, who is believed to be a cousin of the recently departed Sultan Esmail Kiram II, has promised the people of Sabah that there will be no more intrusions and his sultanate will no longer be issuing claims over the State.

“We already have a lot on our hands fighting for the independence of Sulu from the Philippines. To add the claim on Sabah to our mission will be unnecessary additional problem when we should instead be working towards our independence,” said Datu Mohd Kudhar SJ Kiram II.

Datu Kudhar, 69, who disclosed that he is the son of one of Jamalul Kiram’s children Sultan Julaspi Kiram II, said he will be going back to the Philippines to inform the government of this decision.

He also vowed that the Sulu will gain its independence from the Philippines next year.

“Therefore, we will want to have harmonious and peaceful relations with our neighbouring country and states. That is why we vow that there will be no more intrusions,” said Kudhar at a press conference here yesterday.

He also said that upon gaining their independence, they will invite the Suluks in Sabah, which he claimed to be over one million of them in the State, to go back to their country.

Kudhar claimed that the late Jamalul Kiram III and Esmail Kiram II had nothing to do with the Kirams.

“No Kiram will ever do what they did,” said Kudhar, referring to the intrusion by Sulu militants in Kampung Tanduo, Lahad Datu, in 2012.

He vowed not to interfere with the ongoing persecution of militants in the country, as “they have committed a serious crime against the Agong,” and that they should be dealt with by the laws of the country.

“It’s a heinous crime. Many innocent lives were lost because of their actions. It’s on them,” he said.

Kudhar also said that although he could, he would not meddle with the issue involving two Malaysians who were kidnapped from Sandakan by Filipino gunmen on May 14, despite allegedly having the influence to do so.

“That is a matter of them (abductors) making a living. You know how it is when you interfere with such things,” he replied when asked.

Kudhar disclosed that his father was the one who was in contact with the late Tun Mustapha and was even one of the signatories of Malaysia’s formation.

“My father didn’t want North Borneo to fall into the hands of the Christians, hence, rejecting the Philippines government. My father was the one in contact with Tun Mustapha. That’s why we were invited to Jesselton in 1963, on invitation by the late Tunku Abdul Rahman himself,” said Kudhar.

“My father signed for Sabah joining the Federation of Malaysia. We (the Sulu Sultanate) are the backbone of Sabah to this day. My father agreed to Sabah joining Malaysia because Malaysia is an Islamic country,” said Kudhar, who also claimed to be the chief of Muslims in all of the Philippines.

Kudhar, whose ‘confirmation’ as the crown prince of the Sulu Sultanate was by verifying it from his father, also apologised to Sabahans for the confusions and chaos caused by the many individuals who claimed to be the Sultan of Sulu, defiling his grandfather’s name, one of which had led to a security crisis in the State.

Kudhar said he had already ordered his people, the Suluks, residing in Malaysia, to continue supporting the Barisan Nasional, particularly the Prime Minister and Chief Minister of Sabah, and to not bite the hands that feed them, as well as to stay out of trouble.

According to Kudhar, there are now over one million Suluks in Sabah and close to 300,000 in Peninsular Malaysia.

Kudhar, who said he attended school in Sekolah Kebangsaan Sembulan and later in Sabah College (Maktab Sabah), is now based in Manila, and had also alleged that he was in Kuala Lumpur with his wife and children, during the intrusion by Sulu militants at Kampung Tanduo, Lahad Datu, in 2012, and therefore could not stop the intrusion.

Let Sabah Sarawak free if MA63 not legally binding - Dr Jeffrey

KOTA KINABALU - “Harris Salleh ought to have set Sabah free from Malaysia in 1976 when he was chief minister if the Malaysia Agreement was not legally binding. The Federation of Malaysia would then be unlawfully constituted.  Instead, during his tenure, Sabah was downgraded to be the 12th State of Malaya”.

“Even the TYT Yang DiPertua Negara now suffers the ignominy of being called Yang DiPertua Negeri since 27 August 1976.  Even the first three TYTs who were constitutionally appointed as Yang DiPertua Negara are now referred even in the Sabah Archives as Yang DiPertua Negeri when it was Yang DiPertua Negara during their respective tenures” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief cum Bingkor Assemblyman, in response to Harris’ opinion that MA63 is not legally binding.

If Malaysia is not legal, Harris owes the people of Sabah a belated explanation why he signed the Petroleum Surrender Agreement on 14 June 1976.  It was a mere 8 days from the Double Six tragedy while the State was still in mourning.   The signing of the oil agreement which dealt with an invaluable asset of Sabah was not even endorsed by the Sabah Legislative Assembly.

In the agreement, Harris accepted on behalf of the Sabah government 5% cash payment for all the oil and gas in Sabah that was vested in Petronas by Tun Razak.  He further agreed to waive the collection of oil royalties and tribute that would have been payable by Petronas under Section 24 of the Land Ordinance, Sabah Cap. 68.

By the stroke of a pen, the foundation was laid for Sabah to become the poorest State in the nation and which was infamously achieved in 2010, 34 years after 1976.

For the history and record buffs, after the 1976 oil agreement was signed, Petronas received a whopping RM380 million for 1976 while Sabah received RM20 million.  The Berjaya government under Harris trumpeted the RM 20 million as a big revenue which was not disclosed in the 1976 Budget tabled by Tun Mustapha’s USNO government in December 1975.

Of course, it was not tabled because Tun Mustapha refused to ratify the signing away of Sabah’s oil and gas to only receive 5% revenues in return.

Now that Harris has openly acknowledged that the Malaysia Agreement and the other constitutional documents are not legally binding, there is only one recourse for him to atone for his past actions while he is still able to.

He should inform in no uncertain terms to PM Najib and CM Musa to take immediate action to dissolve the Malaysian federation and let Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak to go their separate ways.

On a similar footing, the federalization of Labuan island to be a federal territory of Malaysia is not legal and ought to be returned to Sabah.

Perhaps, his grandchildren will in 34 years see the benefit of his action to help dissolve Malaysia and see Sabah rise from being the poorest in the same span of time to be in the company of Singapore, Brunei and Dubai, as one of the richest nations in the world.

Then not only will Sabah import belacan from Brunei without referring to MA63 or the 20-Points, it will be free of import duties and GST-free as Sabah will be in control of its own revenues and tariffs and with its own oil revenues 100%, there would be no need for import duties and GST to be imposed.

Three Sabah JPN officials held

KOTA KINABALU - Three Sabah National Registration Department (JPN) officials - one of them believed holdintg a senior rank - have been arrested and remanded for suspected involvement in a syndicate offering MyKad to illegal immigrants.

It is understood that the Sabah Department Director also had his statement taken by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Agency officials on the matter on Friday. However, the Sabah JPN Director could not be reached for comments.

Daily Express understands that the three were brought before Magistrate Cyndi McJuce who allowed the remand for seven days, Saturday. They were seen escorted to the lock-up by the MACC officials at 9:30am.

Also with the three officials was a middleman whose remand order expired on Saturday. The suspect who owns a chain of Indian Muslim restaurants in Sandakan was picked up on Sept. 17.

It was understood that the middleman would inquire from illegals interested in acquiring MyKads at RM5,000 each and the particulars would be forwarded to the three JPN officials for the identification document to be processed.

It is not known how many MyKads might have been issued this way or how long the scam was going on but it came to light when a dispute arose between the middlemen and the JPN officials, recently, over the applications by three foreigners suspected to be Filipinos.

It is also understood that the JPN officials immediately deleted the particulars of the foreigners from the system when the matter came to the knowledge of their higher ups.

The issuance of identification documents had always been blamed on syndicates and this is the first time that high-ranking JPN officials based in Kota Kinabalu have been directly implicated.
