Can Sabah and S’wak secede?

Can Sabah and S’wak secede?

 | April 14, 2014
This article is intended for those who think Malaysia or rather Malaya owns Sabah and Sarawak.
COMMENT
Sabah SarawakOnce again I am writing about Abdul Rahman Dahlan, the Kota Belud MP who was reported on Feb 17, 2014 in the mainstream media to have cited the 20-Points and said the following:
(1) It is seditious and treasonous to suggest that both Sabah and Sarawak secede from the Federation of Malaysia;
(2) Sabah and Sarawak cannot secede from Malaysia;
(3) Secession is not a solution to the woes of Sabah and Sarawak.
If readers have accessed my previous pieces about the man, they would conclude that Abdul Rahman really does not actually know what he is saying all of the time.
Before that I would remind readers that:
Official deceit which is one part of Machiavellian politics has always been the religion of colonizers and one classic lie that has never fail to be used is “you need us to protect you from yourself” has been said to the naive and brainwashed colonized population throughout the ages until today.
We do not need to look far, actually; the present political drama unfolding in Malaysia that is shaking right-thinking citizens reveals the unprecedented thievery and pretense perpetrated by mendacious opportunists from both sides of the political divide is ample indications itself.
Half past six champions of the void ab initio Malaysia Agreement of July 9, 1963 that saw the formation of the Federation of Malaysia are asserting that the rights of Sabah (20-Points) and Sarawak (18-Points) are safeguarded in a document identified as the Inter-Governmental Committee Report of 1962 or in short, the IGC Report; today, we shall see how foolishly wrong they are.
Before we proceed, it is necessary to recapitulate that the Malaysia Agreement is absolutely void from the very beginning because Britain at all material times never had sovereignty over the whole of Sabah to give away and the government of Malaysia like its predecessor the British government is still paying annual rentals to the Sulu Sultanate in the Philippines until today.
The latin maxim “nemo dat quod non habet” is a legal principle that says you cannot confer property you do not own on another person except with the authority of the true owner or simply put – you cannot give what you do not have.
For further reading, go to the Manila Accord which was signed on July 31, 1963 between Abdul Rahman Putra, Soekarno, and Diosdado Macapagal; it is clearly and unambiguously understood that the formation of Malaysia is subject to the claim of the Philippines on Sabah being adjudicated in the International Court of Justice which Putrajaya is scared of going there for fear of losing.
And worst, the more than 1.1 million people of Sabah and Sarawak at that point of time were never consulted in a referendum whether they wanted Malaysia – only about 4,000 were reportedly interviewed by the Cobbold Commission.
Backward society
We cannot really blame Sabahans and Sarawakians who suffer from collective issues of ignorance because like the rest of Malaya today, for more than 50 long years, they have been indoctrinated with falsified historical facts and fed with substandard education that taught them “what to think” instead of “how to think” and living their entire lives on assumptions peddled by cheats and liars.
Do readers know why are things becoming so complicated and bad here in Sabah now?
Because the people of Sabah are so gullible to the extent that they cannot even be trusted to honorably do the right thing on their own volition during elections for their own good and that of their descendants.
Suffice to say, the Sabah of today has remained a feudal and backward society since the British left.
The fine example of Brunei not becoming a colony of Malaya, look at how they can do what they want with their oil and gas wealth – poverty practically does not exists there; the success story of tiny and resource-less Singapore who left Malaysia in 1965 being transformed into a First World nation today profoundly confirms that both Sabah and Sarawak are incurable failures of epic proportions.
Now, we go to the circus to showcase our clown of the day.
Question 1
The 1962 IGC Report by its name alone is only a report; and the pertinent confusion is this – since when can a mere report containing proposed recommendations or demands, as some people put it, evolve into a legally binding international Treaty, Agreement, Contract, or Convention?
In the 1963 Malaysia Agreement, were the 20-Points and 18-Points, or alternatively how many of both were clearly spelt out in the same?
Find out too exactly how many of the individual 20-Points and 18-Points were actually incorporated into the Federal Constitution of Malaysia, the latter of which is evidently masqueraded by the Constitution of Malaya.
By all international standards, is the IGC Report not at best only a Memorandum of Understanding with no legal force of law?
Question 2
If the IGC Report has no legality or statutory effectiveness, of what legitimacy do the Sabah 20-Points and the Sarawak 18-Points contained therein have?
Question 3
Ask yourselves this: if the clause “there should be no right to secede from the Federation” are in the Points that have no legitimacy nor legality, can Sabah and Sarawak still secede from the Federation of Malaysia?
Question 4
Do readers know that Malaysia is not a country but a federation of independent nations that consists of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak, and Singapore (left in 1965)?
Question 5
Do readers know the meaning of the word “treason”? The Oxford English Dictionary defines it as the crime of betraying one’s country.
Say for example the democratically elected government of the independent country of Scotland has decided that a referendum will be held onSept 18, 2014 to let their Scottish citizens decide whether they want to secede from the United Kingdom after more than three hundred years in the union since 1707; what treason is there?
Therefore, to the people of Sabah and Sarawak who harbor the wish of secession: you must first elect educated and competent patriots and nationalists to run your Sabah and Sarawak governments – not bootlickers who are remotely-controlled by Malayan political parties like what is happening now!
Question 6
Now, Malaysia is a federation while Sabah (an independent nation) is our country or NEGARA in the Malay language; we have always been a negara when Malaysia was formed until 1976 when Parliament downgraded our status to negeri without consulting the Sabah Legislative Assembly after former Sabah Chief Minister Donald Stephens and many other leaders were mysteriously killed in an air disaster upon flying back from Labuan island without signing the petroleum agreement that robs Sabah to the tune of 95% of our oil and gas wealth.
The subsequent signing of the same by former Sabah Chief Minister Harris Salleh and witnessed by Joseph Pairin Kitingan is also illegal because the Sabah Legislative Assembly was also not consulted on the matter.
How can anyone who calls for the secession of our country Sabah from the Federation of Malaysia be committing treason?
Question 7
The Macmillan Dictionary best defines “state” as a nation or country and the government of a country.
Take note that the State of Sabah like the State of Sarawak is an independent nation or country with a government where cabinet members are called ministers unlike say Penang or Johore where their local governments do not have cabinets and members are only executive councillors.
Sabah and/or Sarawak are equal in status with the entire Malaya combined and not with any individual states in Peninsular.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines “seditious” as inciting or causing people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.
As has been mentioned in question 4 supra, Malaysia is a federation of independent nations and Sabah is our nation or country (NEGARA in Malay) where we have our own government and in lieu of a monarch we have our own Head of State (originally called Yang diPertuan Negara and later changed to Yang diPertua Negeri by Parliament without consultation with the Sabah Legislative Assembly in 1976).
As far as we know, nationalists in Sabah and Sarawak are not instigating rebellions against the Sabah or Sarawak governments or respective Heads of State; for every citizen from the independent nations of Sabah and Sarawak, how can we when we call for the secession of our respective countries from a failed Federation of Malaysia be seditious, then?
Question 8
In every suit that we handled or lecture delivered in the past, we always provide simple and easy to understand analogies when we submit and today we give you the following:
If in a failed marriage (Federation of Malaysia), the lazy and incompetent husband (Malaya) not only neglect his conjugal duties (development) to his wives (Sabah and Sarawak) but also took away 95% of their wealth (taxes and natural resources) for his own extravagant spending, what should the wives do if not divorce and leave him?
If ever Sabah and Sarawak are to be bankrupted, let it not be done by Malaya for the benefit of Malaya.
Question 9
When the Federation of Malaysia was illegally formed in 1963 (as per our reasoning above), there were the governments of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak, and Singapore (left in 1965); do you realize that the government of Malaya has ceased to exist altogether unlike Sabah, Sarawak, and even Singapore?
If Malaya was not masquerading as Malaysia to colonize Sabah and Sarawak today, we really do not know what is…!
Question 10
In the year 1963 when Malaysia was formed, the governments of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak, and Singapore signed the Malaysia Agreement; an advocate and solicitor recently drew our attention to the following:
When Singapore left Malaysia in 1965, an agreement was executed on Aug 7, 1965 for the separation between the government of Singapore and the government of Malaysia without consultation with the governments of Sabah and Sarawak as original partners in the Malaysia Agreement.
Is the Singapore Separation Agreement of 1965 valid without the signatories from Sabah and Sarawak; if the answer is in the negative, is Singapore still technically and legally a part of Malaysia; further and in the alternative, is the Malaysia Agreement of 1963 voided as a result of the 1965 Separation Agreement?
Conclusion
The 1963 Malaysia Agreement is void ab initio; can the 1965 Singapore Separation Agreement further invalidate something that is clearly invalid in the first instance; or in laymen’s term, would blowing up a corpse which died years earlier with C4 explosives kill it again?
On June 18, 1984 former President Diosdado Macapagal who laid the Philippines claim on Sabah in 1962 said “unless Sabah becomes an independent state by itself, it shall be the continuing duty of our posterity to carry on the endeavor to return Sabah to the Philippines”.
In plain and uncomplicated language, it means that if Sabah truly becomes free, the Philippines claim will be dropped.
Our final question to readers from Sabah and Sarawak is this:
Is it not our nationalistic, patriotic, and holy duty to free our countries of an evil colonizer who is striving on racism and religious persecution, a greedy subjugator who commit continuous economic genocide on the people of Sabah and Sarawak by siphoning our wealth in the billions to sustain their lifestyle and leaving us with pittance?
To those of you who now understand but think and decide otherwise, where then have you hidden your conscience – in the sewage pond…?

Malaysia Agreement the real defender for Sabah?

Will defiant Taib ‘conform’ and kiss Agong’s hand?

 | February 28, 2014
The author says the act of Sabah and Sarawak Governors kissing the Agong's hand is strictly taboo and the highest insult to the people of these states.
COMMENT
Taib Istana NegaraThe Barisan Nasional-Umno government has been involved in mind control experiments since Malaysia was formed.
Aside from distorting history and imposing this version via schools, they are also using other less obvious ways such as  the “subliminal stimuli” technique.
The scientifcally proven technique  uses any sensory stimuli below individual threshold for conscious perception.
The technique was used extensively after World War 1  especially in the United States and Europe.   For a more detailed review of these ideas please read Gustav La Bon, Edward Barney and Walter Lippmann.
These techniques have since been adopted by the Malaysian authority to indoctrinate the population compelling them to conform to certain ideas.
A good example of the use of ‘subliminal stimuli’ is the general acceptance that Malaysia was established in 1957.
Take a good look at the design of the Malaysia Ringgit note.
Many people have not noticed that the portrait of the Yang Di Pertuan Agong on the ringgit is that of the first Yang Di Pertuan Agong of the Federation of Malaya – not Malaysia.
Malaysia came into being in September 16, 1963
Brainwashing Borneo
The first Yang Di Pertuan Agong of Malaysia is actually Tunku Syed Putra – the Raja of Perlis and not Tunku Abdul Rahman of Negeri Sembilan.
The basic reason for this to delude the people into unconsciously believing that Malaysia was established in 1957.
The other reason is to lull the minds of Sabah and Sarawak citizens into accepting that they “joined” Malaysia.  In actual fact Sabah and Sarawak were independent nations who came together to “form” Malaysia.
No one in Malaysia questions this issue until today.
There are many phrases and symbols which pepper our everyday environment to indirectly reinforce the idea of ‘conforming’ to 1957. These  include the Malaysia crest, placement of Sabah and Sarawak flags, seating arrangements.
The act of Sabah and Sarawak’s TYT kissing the Agong’s hand is strictly taboo and the highest insult to the people of Sabah and Sarawak.
This is critically important especially in the case of Sabah and Sarawak.
Kuala Lumpur may want Sabah and Sarawak to conform to the country’s base point which is 1957 instead of 1963.
We believe this is a concerted effort by Kuala Lumpur to subdue the population in Borneo.
It is a subtle work in progress to manipulate the minds of the Sabah and Sarawak state governments into conforming to the directives of the nerve centre.
These cognitive corruptions is not limited to phrases and symbols, it also permeates into efforts to change the Malaysia Constitution and the respective enactments in Borneo.
Changing title of Governor  
This was especially important after the Kalong Ningkan case in Sarawak – where he won the court case which ceased his tenure as the Chief Minister. The victory while landmarked failed in a state of emergency being declared in Sarawak.
The first neutering of the people’s mind in Sabah and Sarawak was done by changing the title of the head of state – from TYT Yang DiPertua Negara to just Tuan Yang Terutama (TYT).
This change was done in the Sabah Legislative Assembly sitting in 1976 right after the first state election.
The reason then was to standardize the title to that from Malacca and Penang.
The second stage is to create the perception that the Malaysia Constitution is supreme and unquestionable.
It is interesting to note that nothing was mentioned of the Malaysia Agreement 1963 which actually created the Malaysia Constitution – refer to Annex A of the Malaysia Agreement 1963.
No one explained that the Malaysia Constitution remains Supreme as long as it is consistent with the Malaysia Agreement 1963 and the Inter-Government Committee Report (IGC).
Kuala Lumpur may be able to deceive some of the people of Sabah and Sarawak but certainly they cannot by-pass the Malaysia Agreement 1963.
This is the legal bulwark that has been protecting ignorant Sabahans and Sarawakians all this while.
Kuala Lumpur knows fully well the strength of these defensive walls.
Sarawak defiance
This is perhaps the reason why since 1963 the Malaysia Parliament made about 600 amendments to the Malaysia Constitution. But they still could not circumvent the Malaysia Agreement 1963.
I strongly believe, all their failure in “managing” the country today can be attributed to the strength of this defence.
It is highly likely that the 20 points is part and parcel of this scheme which was extensively raised in 1987 when PBS government was in the opposition.
The purpose was to divert the people’s attention from studying the Malaysia Agreement 1963. Instead  Kuala Lumpur made the 20 points as the base of Sabah’s struggle for their rights.
In this aspect, they were helped by ignorant Sabah leaders.
The Malaysia Agreement 1963 raised the spectra of secession and a possible dis-integrating as a federation whilst the 20 points allowed Sabahans to vent out their anger yet remain docile within the Federation.
To unravel these issues after 50 years is not that simple and easy.  Each step taken may uncover hidden minefields that must be defused before proceeding.
This is the reason the Sarawak defiance led by Taib Mahmud is a historical landmark in the federal – state relations for Sarawak and Sabah.

Petronas, Felda ignoring cry for help in Sabah

http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2014/01/22/petronas-felda-ignoring-cry-for-help-in-sabah/

Petronas, Felda ignoring cry for help in Sabah

 | January 22, 2014
Petronas and Felda are in the crosshairs of critics in Sabah who are demanding how they could be so callous as not to prioritise the state for aid distribution.
LAHAD DATU: Petronas and Felda, two of the country’s biggest corporate organisations which reap billions of ringgit from the Borneo states of Sabah and Sarawak, have again come under fire over their biased aid distribution..
The stark discrimination was on display recently when the two corporate giants trumpeted their generosity to flood victims in the peninsula in the media.
“If Petronas can contribute RM50 million to flood victims in peninsula why can’t they assist us too?” asked Abdul Wahid Jainal, a political leader here whose office has been swamped by appeals for help.
The PKR Silam division chairman said it was shameful that neither the oil and gas giant nor Felda whose land in Tungku is the largest oil palm plantation in the country had come forward to assist flood victims in Silam which encompasses Tungku.
Both the peninsula-headquartered companies are in the crosshairs of critics in Sabah who are demanding to know how they could behave so callously when they had been operating in Sabah for  decades and accumulating profits amounting to hundreds of billions of ringgit.
“What has Felda contributed to Silam? Nothing,” said an outraged Abdul Wahid.
He said the giant, self-contained agro-based enterprise was cut off from reality having created their own township and businesses which get their supplies directly from the peninsula thereby by-passing Sabah-based businesses.
“They even have their own port in Sahabat 16 and have opened up sundry shops, airline ticketing and other services in town here to compete with small local businesses.
“Sadly these big federal companies only came here to rip off big profits and ignore the suffering of those hit by the flooding which happens every year and is getting worse,” said Abdul Wahid.
Also in his line of fire were the local government authorities for not only ignoring the plight of the flood victims but also failing to implement a flood mitigation programme to bring an end to the annual floods that makes roads impassable, isolating plantations, refineries, mills and factories for days or even weeks.
“I was made to understand that many houses, vehicles and even heavy vehicles in plantations were submerged under flood water.
“Many businesses have suffered huge losses particularly small plantations holders,” said Abdul Wahid.
While the flooding problem has been know for years, the government has gone ahead with costly beautification programmes with an eye to upgrading the district to municipality by 2015.

Errors about Tawau

 There are so many errors about Tawau in this article which explains the sorry state of development for Sabah on the whole.

Tawau was not upgraded to a district. It was downgraded from a Residency under the British before Malaysia. Under the British, Tawau was equivalent to Perak or Pahang.

Even under Malaysia, upgrading to a district is nothing much. Tawau was a town even under the British. It should have been upgraded to a city already. It is an insult to say that Tawau was downgraded to a district in the 80s.

In fact, Tawau had been the third largest town in Sabah, behind Sandakan. Recently, the population in Tawau has matched up with Sandakan but built-up area is still much less compared to Sandakan. Sandakan is built-up to more than 10 miles now, with daily traffic jams.

To west malaysian, Tawau appear bigger because of the towns. Tawau town is bigger because of the closeness of the suburban areas to the city centre. In city area size, Tawau is even bigger than Kota Kinabalu. Kota Kinabalu and Sandakan are limited by the hills at their backs.

What Tawau lacks is the number of high class hotels. Kota Kinabalu has the most followed by Sandakan. Tawau needs  4 star hotels. Kota Kinabalu was well developed when the State Government invested in the Hyatt Hotel followed by Tanjung Aru Shangrila Hotel.

Tawau set to benefit from Palmex
Published on: Sunday, May 26, 2013
Labuan: Tawau is set to benefit from the Palmex International Exhibition and Conference 2013 (Palmex Malaysia 2013), which it will host from June 11-13.
The event, touted as Malaysia's biggest palm oil exhibition, has succeeded in attracting 100 exhibitors.
Sabah's second largest town, Tawau, has never hosted any international event since its elevation into a district in the 80s, due to assumptions of logistics and geographical factors.
"Tawau has been the State's main palm oil producer for decades, with thousands of acres planted with oil palm.
"It has the potential to be on par with other developing districts, but needs continuous support from both the government and business community.
"It is a matter of pride that the district has been chosen as the preferred venue for an international event," Fireworks Asia Sdn Bhd Managing Director, Jerel Soo said.
The company is the organiser of the Palmex Malaysia 2013.
He said the international exhibition will drive Tawau to be known regionally, giving a boost to its business activities and economic development.
"Palmex Malaysia 2013 is expected to create a platform for both upstream and downstream palm oil companies to explore wider business opportunities.
"It will bring about 5,000 industry professionals to visit the strategic, operational and technological aspects of Sabah's oil palm industry, which is Malaysia's biggest, and that of Asean as a whole," he added.
Palmex Malaysia 2013 is endorsed by the Sabah State Government, the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) and the Association of Small Medium Enterprises Singapore.
Among the participants are those from Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Thailand, China and the United Kingdom.
The exhibition will feature the latest heavy machinery and technology being used in the downstream and upstream activities of the oil palm sector.

Bishop says Election watchddogs are LIARS

 https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2013/05/17/bishop-polls-anything-but-free-and-fair/

This bishop is more Islamic than most Muslims, even Hadi the leader of PAS.

Bishop: Polls anything but free and fair

RK Anand | May 17, 2013
Bishop Paul Tan explains that while he abstains from partisan politics, he supports electoral watchdog Bersih in its cause for free and fair polls.
INTERVIEW
PETALING JAYA: An outspoken Catholic cleric has cast aspersion on the 13th general election with regard to the battle for Putrajaya being clean and fair.
Bishop Paul Tan said this in reference to the report of the Institute of Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) and Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS).
“IDEAS and CPPS have done an interim report. In it, there is this conclusion: ‘GE13 was only partially free and not fair’. I find it difficult to believe that the report could conclude this…
“But when it concluded ‘only partially free’ for the three reasons given that are fraught with irregularities as reported in the said report, the people involved are not objective,” he said.
“From the multiple examples of irregularities arrived in the report, permit me to use a stronger phrase than that of IDEAS and CPPS: GE13 is anything but transparently ‘free and fair’,” he added.
Tan, who heads the Malacca and Johor diocese, conceded that he could be wrong but stressed that he was morally obliged to speak out at this time because of the immorality practiced before and during GE13.
“If I didn’t speak up, I would have to answer to my God and my Church,” he said.
Tan said while he obeyed the Catholic Church’s teaching that clerics must not take sides in partisan politics, he noted that the church also taught that clerics must speak out against immoralities and against all that go against human rights.
“As a religious person in my role as bishop, I am in a dilemma vis-a-vis to what extent should I allow a certain degree of immorality or infringement against human rights to go on unpunished before denouncing them publicly,” he added.
For a long time, Tan said, there had not been sufficient action taken against immorality in its widest sense, especially corruption.
“Some attempts have been made by related government departments to deal with the matter. In ‘grosso modo’, it has not been effective. Only a few small fish have been caught, the big fish was left untouched.
“The consequence of this ‘laissez faire’ lifestyle is that it has produced massive corruption, cheating and immoral manipulation of the people to garner votes for one’s political party.
“Unfortunately, this cuts across the boundaries of all parties. The degree lies in the extent of corruption,” he added.
‘Are we not ashamed?’
The bishop also noted that the most obvious example was the lavish manner in which the Najib administration threw cash to get votes.
“Where is our country going? Are cheating and corruption condoned as part of our Malaysian culture? Are we not ashamed of our country being an immoral society?
“We must all reflect and examine our consciences. What sort of nation do we want our country to be, moral or immoral? Undoubtedly, all will want a ‘moral country’.
“But what sort of morality do we want? It is here that the degree of permissiveness comes into play. To what extent can we tolerate it before stringent action is taken to punish the unscrupulous?” he added.
Condemning money politics, Tan said even if it was considered “legalised corruption”, it does not exonerate the guilt of the ones involved.
“Corruption is corruption, even if one was to dress it up like a queen. A toilet remains a toilet, even if one gives it the beautiful terms of ‘comfort room’ or ‘powder room’,” he added.
The bishop explained that while he abstained from partisan politics, he supported electoral watchdog Bersih in its cause for free and fair polls.
“Any rational and moral person will support it,” he said.

Vote flying.

http://www.sarawakreport.org/2013/05/down-at-the-airport/

Down At The Airport!

2 May 2013
Charter flights laid on by BN friendly Air Asia from KK and Kuching – with hoards of Indonesian plantation workers on board…..
Down at the airport is where it is happening with the Malaysian elections right now.
Secret flights are heading out loaded with cash.
Meanwhile overloaded chartered jets are flying in crowded with foreign workers, suspected of being dragooned into voting for BN.
It would appear that the rats are leaving the sinking ship, while the PM is still desperately trying to win this election “at any cost”
Emails from Air Asia & Malaysian Airways expose a desperate PM
Today, emails leaked to the opposition by staff working at both Air Asia and Malaysian Airways have left Najib Razak desperately exposed [see base of article].
They indicate that while his departing henchmen and rich businessmen have increasingly been losing faith that he can win this election, the PM has been caught red-handed trying to ferry tens of thousands of dubious voters over to KL to influence the outcome!
Staff insiders at Air Asia and Malaysian Airways have just leaked the devastating email interchanges, which lay bare the whole operation with both sets of emails implicating the Prime Minister personally in the extraordinary operation.
‘We need to move 30,000 people over a 3 day period’ – PM needs to know how our plans are going
As his UMNO troops have started to desert in their private jets, can the PM survive this devastating exposure?
Rats leaving the sinking ship?
Because chartered jumbos are not the only unusual traffic that has been raising eyebrows.
Private jets have also been busy as rich Malaysians are getting their money out by whatever means it seems.  One the eye-witness account from air crew came through to Sarawak Report yesterday of:
 “a private plane leaving Subang filled with a collection of luxury bags,and one large gunny sack stuffed with US dollars-estimated value RM 2.5 billion‬. Bags were dropped off by men in suits driving a couple of sliver Mercedeses , number plate “11″
From vote buying to vote flying!
Mass transportation of ‘voters’ is underway
As for the traffic moving in the other direction, PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim has come out tonight stating that his information is solid that these are foreign workers being ferried to KL to be used as ‘voting fodder’.
PKR have made clear that they believe that the UMNO supporting Election Commission (both the Chairman and deputy were card-carrying UMNO members) are registering them as new voters.
One senior PKR member told Sarawak Report today:
“The National Registration Department which issues I.C.s (Identity Cards) secretly issue these cards to the PM’s Office, which then gets undercover agents to recruit foreign nationals, who get their pictures taken and then superimposed on the I.Cs and then the Election Commission which is in charge of registering voters simply key in the data of these new I.C.s into their system. Voila! New voters!”
And today Najib indeed appears to have been caught red-handed, bringing in dubious workers from the two East Malaysian states to vote BN in marginal seats in peninsular Malaysia.
Passenger manifest
The leaked emails indicate that the Prime Minister has been urgently coordinating the chartering of massive 747s to ship over 40,000 Indonesians or East Malaysians from Kuching and KK, airports, backwaters that normally never see the like of such aircraft.
The incriminating evidence is there in snapshots, emails and aircraft information that are currently going viral on the web.
Both the emails leaked from Air Malaysia and Air Asia indicate that the matter is being coordinated by the Prime Minister’s office.  One from Malaysian Airways makes plain that the chartered planes are to “ferry voters and election workers from BKE and KCH”.
Since when did these sleepy plantation states become packed with poor West Malaysian workers needing charter flights back to KL or indeed East Malaysian, who might be registered in West Malaysia and need to go back to vote?
Suspicions are now rife that many of these individuals may be foreign plantation workers, doing their masters’ bidding.
Malaysian Airlines – ‘Schedule to ferry voters and election workers’ from Kuching to KL
Moreover, while all names are obliterated from the Malaysian Airways emails, the ones from Air Asia show clearly who many of the key writers and recipients of the emails are. They include the Chief Executive Aireen Omar.
See this smoking gun email below from Omar with a second reference to the need to report back to the PM herself!  (full evidence via link is available at base of page)
Can you let me know about flight availability by tomorrow morning as I have to see PM at noon!!!
One wonders how BN has the brass necked cheek to pose as the party of ‘stability’ when it indulges in such grossly provocative acts as this plan to plane and then bus thousands of foreigners to the polling stations of such places as Selangor on Sunday?
Charter planes arriving just before the election and leaving straight after! Is this what BN mean about ‘winning’ back Selangor at any price?
Cooperation from BN’s ‘fixed deposit’ states
And how typical of the two corrupted BN tyrants of East Malaysia, Chief Ministers Taib Mahmud and Musa Aman to cooperate in such a scandalous activity.
According to airport insiders the charters have already started ferrying helpless plantation workers, who do what they are told to do
Both men are exposed up to their necks in graft, with billions in kickbacks firmly labelled against their names.  Therefore both are desperate to do what they can to save Najib who will protect them for as long as they can provide BN the seats he needs to keep power.
40,000 plantations workers on a plane by the weekend to vote in Selangor?  Why not!
Sabah’s Project IC is the direct comparison.  Then UMNO ‘legalised’ foreign nationals to steal the East Malaysian state from its native voters.
Now it appears they are flying those workers over West Malaysia to steal their states too!
Malaysian air crew speaking to journalists at Heathrow airport had this to say Tuesday morning:
Was at Heathrow on Tuesday and met some senior aircrew. They claim that Najib is using MAS old 747s (the ones which were old and replaced by the new A380s) to fly foreigners in from both KK and Kuching…..  there have been several of these flights over the past weeks”[UK journalist].
As per Tony’s email!
The involvement of the Chairman of Air Asia is also plain in this trail of emails.  Tony Fernandez (now world famous as the owner of QPR Football Club) is the BN client and supposed ‘whizz kid’, who went from nowhere to the head of a major airline in a twinkling of an eye having caught the eye of Mahathir some years back.
He clearly owes his political allies some loyalty:
Air Asia, which is hand in glove with the Malaysian powers that be, needs to come out and explain each of these flights immediately – and the role of the PM in organising them
Today Anwar Ibrahim released this compelling evidence of the ‘vote flying’ in an urgent press statement followed by a release of the evidence that BN are now being forced to struggle to explain.
Get to the airport and photograph the disgraceful activity!
Worrying crowds – Are BN also Buying up Bangaldeshis as their traditional crowd fodder melt away?
Promoting BN, but is he Malay?
There is another issue that has been gaining attention across the blogs.  Concern has grown that BN has been paying a different section of Malaysia’s community of foreign workers to perform another aspect of its election strategy.
This is crowd buying.
BN’s oil flushed, timber flushed solution to all its problems for the last 50 years has been “if you need it, buy it”.
And in this election it seems that as it has become harder to buy up their own Malay supporters for the party, they have started to pay poor immigrant cheer leaders to wear their T-shirts and wave their flags.
Meanwhile, the real UMNO troopers are concentrating on getting their money out of town.
The level of graft of by the ruling elite, which is currently pouring its money out of KL and into foreign safe havens has been causing even the banking community to feel sickened at the sight, according to insiders who have confided to Sarawak Report.
Follow the money to see what a growing number of panicking UMNO bigwigs think the outcome of this election will be.  Last year as many Malaysians as British nationals bought property in Central London. One told a London estate agent before Christmas:
 ”I will buy any property you have in Central London on your books.  I need to get my money out as there is to be an election in Malaysia soon and the next government may be stricter about people like me taking out money like this!”
But, while BN’s henchmen are starting to run round like disturbed ants, there is one man who is determined that the party should win this coming election and that is the PM Najib Razak, whose pride depends on success.
Who can blame these people if they have been asked by their bosses to wave such flags for a small sum?
And if that means shipping in tens of thousands of foreign illegal voters and putting tens of thousands more into BN T-shirts all to con an election from his own people, then it seems he is prepared to try and carry it off.
But Najib’s actions are being watched by the entire nation now and they are likely to do far more damage than good to his cause of winning this election “at any cost”.

These are collections of articles.Some interesting point is the suggestion of using Sabahan's Suluk assets, such as Tun Juhar and Shafie Apdal.

Lahad Datu Incursion: Our Leaders have failed not just Sabahans

  1. by Din Mericannd
Yesterday afternoon, my wife and I had tea with a Semenanjung (West Malaysia) man with his wife who is a Sabahan lady. He was seething with anger over what is happening in Lahad Datu. Come to think of it, I am now not sure if he was angry or was just expressing utter disappointment in the state of our country.

 Our tea conversation started with our worry over the high incidents of street crimes and the failure of the Home Ministry to curb it. It is now almost a daily occurrence that someone gets snatched, slashed and snatched, and crashed and snatched even in locked cars at traffic lights. This is manifest that the Police have failed in upholding their pledge under the Police Act - the protection of life and property.
 Then the topic became more heated when my friend’s wife, the Sabahan lady, said that our leaders have failed us in more ways than one. She said Malaysians in Semenanjung  no longer feel safe within the borders of the country, and,as a Sabahan, she is now petrified that her home state can be so easily “invaded” by a ragtag army from Southern Philippines.
Hishamuddin-The Bird Watcher2
She recalled that some three weeks ago, the Home Minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, expelled an Australian Senator Nick Zenophon because he was a threat to the national security of the country, but defended the presence of the Sulu gunmen as somewhat of a peaceful delegation. And now what has happened?
Zaid HamidiShe then asked rhetorically – Where is our Malaysian army? Where is our Malaysian Navy? Where is our Scorpene submarine? We spend billions in defence and we can’t even ward off a rag tag unsophisticated group of criminals from across the border.
It is meaningless for Defence Minister Zahid Hamidi (left) to appear on the front page of national newspapers dressed in army fatigues, whereas we have allowed one hot spot in Lahad Datu to expand to Sampoerna and Kunak. And yet our Ministers say it is only 3 locations. ONLY?
We were then joined by another couple from Sabah, the husband is a former Policeman turned private sector lawyer and the wife a former magistrate in Sabah. Both of them were very certain of whom they hold responsible – our government leaders. All were very sympathetic to the policemen who were killed and their families. “We grieve for them but their deaths could have been avoided if the politicians had taken things more seriously and are not busy politicising this matter” said the lawyer husband.
He pointed out the multiple crimes committed by these Filipino criminals – illegal entry, bearing and using firearms, kidnapping, murder etc etc, all these latter crimes punishable with capital punishment. He mocked our Foreign Minister, Information Minister and all government Ministers for falling into the trap of characterising these criminals as the Sulu Sultanate army. They are not even recognised by the Philippines Government and yet we are ever too eager to treat them as if they are a legitimate army.
 On the night the 2 Policemen were killed, the country’s InformationRais YatimMinister, Rais Yatim, was on national TV at the Malaysian Film Festival receiving an award of his own creation, insensitive to the fact that the nation’s security personnel are battling their lives for the country.
There is a news blanket on what is happening in Sabah whereas entertainment programs continue to lull the public into complacency, into a false sense of security oblivious to the fact that the security forces are facing clear and present danger from this highly explosive situation.
When 911 happened in New York, all TV stations in the USA made live reporting hour by hour as if the whole of USA was under attack. The incident received worldwide attention and sympathy. Here in Malaysia, we have an invasion-type criminals terrorising the state of Sabah, and yet our leaders make it appear as if it does not affect the country. Is Sabah a hinterland of no significance to the Federation of Malaysia? What does being part of a federation mean if the Federal government cannot protect Sabah as part of its sovereignty? This is the central issue in this incident.
“It is also a mistake to keep on harping about these criminals being Sulus” said the Sabahan wife. “Just as Malaysia is a multiracial country that we are proud of, Sabahans too consist of many indigenous groups including Malay, Chinese,Kadazan, Murut, Bajau and Sulu. Thus, focusing on the Sulu will isolate the Sulu people to feel uneasy and forced to take sides” she said. In Sampoerna, it was the Sulu community that disarmed the infiltrating criminals. So, there are good patriotic Malaysian Sulus just as there are patriotic Malaysian Indians, Chinese, Kadazan, Murut and others.
 On the other hand the country’s leaders from Semenanjung seemed Shafie Apdalignorant in not involving the TYT of Sabah who is a Sulu, or for that matter the Sabah UMNO Chief Shafie Afdal who is also a Sulu, in seeking a resolution to this problem. The best asset available in Sabah are not used, instead the Semenanjung Ministers are busy posing for photographs!
 Then the lawyer husband made an interesting comment that this incident would not have happened in the time when Dato Ramli Yusuff was Police Commissioner Sabah and Brig-Gen Yasin was Army Commander Sabah. I asked him why he said that. He then narrated a fact unknown to most Malaysians that after the Sipadan hostage incident in 1999-2000, Dato Ramli became Commissioner Sabah from 2001- 2004.
Ramli Yusuff
At the request of the then Chief Minister Chong Kah Kiat, Dato Ramli (above) formed a special Task Force with the Army Commander of Sabah to rid the state of illegal Indonesian and Filipino immigrants. Hundreds of thousands illegal immigrants were driven out of Sabah. Ramli was so successful that the then State Government of Sabah awarded him the Dato’ Pahlawan Sabah for truly taking care of Sabah’s territorial borders.
 But little did Dato Ramli realise that he was digging his own grave by doing that because those whom he drove out of Sabah were not just illegal immigrants. These were illegal immigrants issued with NRIC masterminded in a BiroTataNegara (BTN) project to secure Sabah votes for BN. This is now revealed in the on-going RCI on the NRIC issue. It is a surprise that neither Chong Kah Kiat nor Dato Ramli are asked to give evidence in this RCI.
 So, for doing that “good deed” for Sabah, Dato Ramli was summoned back to KL on a lateral transfer as CPO Pahang. In 2006, when Dato Ramli became the Director CCID, he was aware of the fragile coastal line around the Tanjung Labian area. To prevent illegal human traffic and arms flow, he conducted an aerial survey over the area called Den Haven in Tanjung Tebian in full uniform escorted by 4 other uniformed police personnel. For doing that, then IGP Musa Hassan and A-G Gani Patail charged Dato Ramli for unlawfully using a Police Cessna for personal use. That was how insidious A-G Gani Patail behaved towards Dato Ramli in order to bring him down.
 Dato Ramli was protecting the Sabah borders and yet he was charged justA-G Gani Patail because A-G Gani Patail (right) couldn’t find enough things to charge Ramli for in that infamous RM 27Million Cop Story. After that, no Commissioner Sabah dared to do a similar aerial survey and that explained the intrusion into the Sabah borders that we see today undetected by our security forces.
 Life has a strange way of turning a full circle. Today, we know that Dato Ramli was cleaning up and saving Sabah while A-G Gani Patail, a Sabahan, was and is preoccupied saving crooks and criminals close to the corridors of power. Today we know some truth, not all, but some truth about how the NRIC project in Tun Mahathir’s time and perpetuated by other BN leaders have proven costly to Sabah.
 We mourn for the loss of lives of our security personnel. They are indeed heroes and should be honoured as such. Malaysians should be united in that. However, we cannot absolve our leaders for the mistakes they committed in causing these losses.
map-sabah-intrudersWe cannot forgive the Home Minister Hishamamuddin Hussein, the Defence Minister Zahid Hamidi and the Information Minister Rais Yatim for all their bungling acts. Ultimately, the buck must stop with the Prime Minister, Najib Tun Razak, and the government of the day that he leads that has caused our sovereignty to be trifled with and our territorial integrity violated.
As we approach GE 13, the likes of Dato’ Ramli and other former military leaders must come forth to seek election as the people’s representative. These are the people whom we can trust to protect our country and our sovereignty when our current leaders have failed not just Sabahans but all Malaysians!
