David Roet, bekas timbalan Duta Israel ke PBB merupakan wakil rasmi pertama negara Israel yang kami ketahui dibenarkan masuk ke Malaysia secara rasmi.
Beliau diberitakan ke Malaysia menghadiri sidang UN- HABITAT Forum tentang isu penempatan semula.
Perlu diingatkan bahawa Malaysia tiada hubungan diplomatik dengan Israel dan rakyat Malaysia tidak dibenarkan pergi ke Israel.
Akhbar negara itu, 'The Times of Israel' melaporkan turut bersama rombongan tersebut ialah bekas menteri Israel dan beberapa pegawai dari kementerian luar Israel.
Akhbar tersebut juga mengalu-alukan perdagangan 'ber-profil rendah' yang sedang berkembang pesat di antara Israel dan Malaysia yang kini bernilai lebih kurang RM 6 billion.
Pihak Israel kelihatan amat gembira dengan sikap terbuka dan bermurah hati kerajaan Malaysia. Ramai rakyat Islam terkejut dan amat berduka-cita tentang perkembangan terbaharu ini yang tidak diumumkan kepada rakyat jelata.
Sejak bila kerajaan Malaysia membenarkan pegawai tertinggi Israel memasuki negara kita?
Adakah kita sudah menggadai maruah umat Islam dalam peristiwa negara Israel ini kerana wang dan perdagangan semata mata?
Baru beberapa hari lepas Timbalan Perdana Menteri sanggup menghantar pulang 12 orang kaum Uighur Muslim yang tertindas pulang ke negara China atas alasan menjaga 'hubungan baik' antara negara yang termasuk isu perniagaan.
Apa sudah jadi kepada nilai maruah umat Islam Malaysia hari ini ?
Apa sebenarnya polisi dan sikap kerajaan Malaysia kini terhadap Israel? Adakah Malaysia sudah berlembut kepada Israel dengan membenarkan pegawai tertinggi mereka memasuki negara kita?
Adakah ini hasil amalan wasatiyah Datuk Seri Najib Razak atau atas nasihat 'Global Movements of Moderates' yang diketuai oleh Nasaruddin Mat Isa yang menyebabkan kerajaan mengubah dasar dan sikap? Rakyat ingin tahu.
Atau adakah kerana Najib Razak begitu taksub mengikut jejak langkah kerajaan Arab Saudi yang telah didedahkan oleh Menteri Israel sendiri mempunyai hubungan rapat yang sulit dengan Israel?
Nampaknya depa tak kan jawab sapa yg benarkan David Roet masuk Malaysia
Apa jua yang sebenarnya, kita minta kerajaan hentikan sandiwara lakonan anti-Israel di khalayak ramai tetapi berbaik-baik secara sulit.
Najib Razak lambat membuat kenyataan mengecam tindakan Amerika memindah kedutaannya ke Baitul Maqdis dan Malaysia kelihatan tidak bersungguh-sungguh mengutuk perbuatan tersebut.
Tindakan membenarkan pegawai tertinggi lsrael memasuki Malaysia dan juga pegawai kita bertemu dengan pegawai Israel di Malaysia seperti dilaporkan dengan bangga oleh akhbar Israel adalah suatu pengkhianatan besar kepada rakyat Palestin dan juga Malaysia.
Datuk Seri Najib perlu menjawab secara rasmi dan berterus-terang tentang isu ini segera!
Ni semua LAKONAN SAJA...
Pengarah Komunikasi PKR, Fahmi Fadzil berkata, Menteri Dalam Negeri, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi perlu segera memberikan penjelasan sama ada benar atau tidak dakwaan delegasi diplomat Israel telah dibenarkan masuk ke Malaysia dengan menggunakan pasport Israel.
"Jika benar, siapa yang memberikan kebenaran untuk mereka masuk? Ini adalah satu hipokrisi atau kemunafikan yang amat besar oleh Putrajaya.
"Ia mencabar kepada maruah negara memandangkan Malaysia tidak mempunyai sebarang hubungan diplomatik dengan Israel dan langsung tidak mengiktiraf Israel," katanya dalam satu kenyataan, hari ini.
Malah, kata Fahmi, Malaysia sering mengecam rejim Israel yang sentiasa menzalimi rakyat Palestin, lebih-lebih lagi cadangan Presiden Amerika Syarikat untuk memindahkan kedutaan negara itu dari Tel Aviv ke Jerusalem. - mk

The Chinese dilemma:
To stay opposition or vote BN...
Every time when it comes to a general election, the local Chinese associations will customarily hop into some kind of action, submitting some sort of memorandum of understanding in hope of resolving the issue of Chinese language education once and for all. Unfortunately most of the appeals would go down the drain, including the call for UEC recognition and institutionalizing the construction of new Chinese primary schools before the 2008 general election.
The same issues were raised again in 2013. And this year, Dong Zong (the United Chinese School Committees Association of Malaysia), Jiao Zong (the United Chinese School Teachers’ Association of Malaysia) and five other major Chinese associations in the country have planned to submit the “Chinese Associations Memorandum of Understanding on Education” in early March, repeating the same requests that are very likely to suffer the same old fate.
As a matter of fact, MoU aside, Dong Zong also staged a “protest to save Chinese education in Malaysia” on September 26, 2012 that saw the participation of some two thousand supporters of Chinese education. Then Dong Zong president Yap Sin Tian led a 20-member delegation to hand in the MoU on the eight major problems of Chinese education at the Parliament House.
The most painful experience in submitting the appeals took place in 1999, when the MoU with pledged support of some 2,098 Chinese organizations nationwide was “in principle” accepted by leaders of Chinese parties in Barisan Nasional on behalf of the cabinet. However, after BN won the election, then prime minister Dr Mahathir described the appeals as an “intimidation” on the election eve as he likened the election appeals working committee as communists and Al-Ma’unah extremists.
On August 18, 2000, then Umno Youth vice chairman Abdul Aziz Sheikh Fadzir led about 200 protestors to demonstrate in front of KL and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall, threatening to burn down the building. The citizens have the right to make reasonable requests and appeals and it is essential for the government to respect public views. Because of previous painful experiences, some local Chinese associations have since opted out of the business, while election MoU now focuses principally on the education issue.
Chinese associations can only reflect the dilemma of Chinese Malaysians by way of submitting an MoU in the run-up to a general election. But as the percentage of Chinese population shrinks by the year, it is feared that any appeal by Chinese associations will eventually fall on deaf ears.
To break through its own dilemma, Dong Zong has been adopting different strategies over the years. After the loss in the Merdeka University case in 1981, Dong Zong under the leadership of Lim Fong Seng came up with a ‘3-in-1″ concept. In the 1982 general election, it came up with the “join BN to rectify BN” slogan, successfully enticing some Chinese educationists to join Gerakan Rakyat. Unfortunately, even that could not reverse the ill destiny of Chinese education in Malaysia after all those years.
The Malaysian Chinese community indeed pinned its hopes on the BN before. Even though BN won the overwhelming support of Chinese Malaysians in the general elections of 1974, 1982, 1995, 1999 and 2004, the ruling coalition never actually instituted fair and equitable governance. The community could only look to some humble gains such as new or relocated SJKCs when the Malays were politically in disunity.
The chronic setbacks and failed struggles have culminated in a determined shift in political inclination among Chinese voters, peaking in 2008 and 2013. With the political situation getting increasingly chaotic today, it is imperative that Chinese Malaysians seek out new strategies in order to get their messages across to the authorities.
This time, the MoU on education has also called for the setting up of an education ombudsman to monitor the fair and efficient implementation of education policies, but again this could be distorted and politicized by some irresponsible quarters. To deliver ourselves out of the current political dilemma, we must first dismantle racist politics. Even if we are not able to crush it completely, at least we can check its advances.
In other words, to defend the rights of minority communities, we must actively promote the democratic process in establishing a more comprehensive system. We must reconsider how we can shed the dilemma that has haunted us for decades soon after we celebrate the Chinese New Year. – mysinchew
The real reason why Kelatan
Sultan striped Dr.M's tile...
It’s election time and strange things are happening. Last week there was nothing more shocking than the Sultan of Kelantan’s withdrawal of the Darjah Kerabat Yang Amat Dihormati title from Pakatan Chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, and the Datukship from Amanah vice-president Husam Musa and party state chief Wan Abdul Rahim Wan Abdullah.
No one knows the reasons for the revocation. The public is entitled to know why the titles were stripped from the affected individuals because it suggests that they did something that either brought the honour system into disrepute, or committed an offence that was outright criminal in nature. Why else would their titles be revoked?
Here the Prime Minister and the Menteri Besar of Kelantan are answerable. Surely the Government must adhere to a process when it recommends to a Ruler that such a drastic step is justified. They are the ones who recommend members of the public to be given titles and awards by the state Ruler, or in the case of federal awards, by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. They should therefore also be responsible for explaining why the titles should be removed. It is not acceptable in this day and age for anyone, not even the Prime Minister or the Menteri Besar, to essentially say: “I can do what I like”.
The United Kingdom’s system of honours and titles is somewhat similar to ours. The Queen grants the honours when so advised by the Prime Minister, and revokes them when requested to by the Government. However, there is a Forfeiture Committee headed by a top civil servant to advise the Cabinet of when titles need to be forfeited or revoked.
They take the revocation of titles seriously because it impugns the individual. The reasons for their decision are always made public. For example, Sir Anthony Blunt had his knighthood stripped from him when he was caught spying for the Russians. Lester Piggot, the champion jockey, had his title taken away for tax fraud, and Fred Godwin faced the same fate for being responsible for massive fraud in the Royal Bank of Scotland in 2008.
Can the Prime Minister and the Kelantan Menteri Besar tell us what crime or dishonourable act Tun Dr Mahathir, Husam and Wan Rahim committed that warranted shaming them publicly? Exactly what did they do to make them unfit to hold the titles that had been bestowed on them?
Here I urge the Malay Rulers to set up a special Forfeiture Committee to look into all such cases that come before them. This not only protects the dignity of title-holders from being abused by those who oppose them, but also protect the Rulers themselves from being accused of conduct unbecoming of a sovereign. Our respect for the Rulers requires them to be always non-political, impartial, fair and transparent when performing their duties. The last thing the Rulers want is to be unwittingly entangled in the maelstrom of dirty politics and abuse of power. - zaid ibrahim

Hari mengundi lewat Mac atau April...
Mengikut penganalisis politik berkata ruang untuk memanggil pilihanraya sudah terlalu kecil.
Mereka percaya hari pengundian akan diadakan pada akhir bulan Mac atau April.
Pada bulan Mei, adalah bulan puasa bagi umat Islam.
Penganalisis politik Profesor Dr Jeniri Amir dari Universiti Malaya Sarawak berkata Parlimen perlu dibubarkan pada bulan depan kerana pilihan raya tidak boleh diadakan pada bulan Mei kerana bulan Ramadan.
"Bulan depan sangat sesuai untuk membubarkan Parlimen dan pada masa yang sama, pilihan raya perlu diadakan sebelum Anwar dibebaskan dari penjara," katanya ketika dihubungi.
Pada masa ini, Perdana menteri dan Timbalannya tidak mempunyai lawatan rasmi ke luar negara sehingga bulan April.
Sasaran Barisan Nasional (BN) kaali ini untuk memenangi sekurang-kurangnya 148 kerusi parlimen daripada 222.
Dalam pilihan raya sebelumnya, BN memenangi 133 kerusi parlimen, manakala pembangkang memenangi 89.
Sumber berkata, Timbalan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi bekerja keras untuk menyerahkan 148 kerusi parlimen untuk BN pada pilihan raya akan datang ini.
Pada 9 Feb lalu, Ahmad Zahid berkata BN akan menggunakan strategi yang sama yang terbukti berjaya dalam pilihan raya negeri Sarawak ke-11 untuk PRU14.
Pada pilihan raya Sarawak 2016, BN menang besar sebanyak 72 negeri daripada 82 kerusi DUN.
Profesor James Chin, Pengarah Institut Asia Tasmania, Universiti Tasmania, berkata: "Pilihan raya itu perlu diadakan selepas Tahun Baru Cina dan sebelum Anwar dibebaskan dari penjara. Adalah berisiko (untuk BN) jika Anwar dibenarkan berkempen semasa pilihan raya ini. "
Dari segi penjawat awam, Ahmad Zahid menerajui Kementerian Dalam Negeri, sementara Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussien menerajui Kementerian Pertahanan. Kedua-dua pemimpin ini memegang bank pengundian bekas anggota tentera dari pihak polis dan tentera.
Terdapat kira-kira 350,000 bekas anggota tentera di negara ini, yang mana hanya sekitar 172,000 mendaftar sebagai pengundi.
Pada pilihan raya umum 2013, pengundian awal oleh anggota polis dan tentera dan isteri mereka yang berdaftar adalah seramai 272, 387.
Pakatan Harapan sedar masa sudah dekat, dan tarikh pilihan raya semakin hampir dan perlu bertindak sebagai satu pakatan yang bersepadu. - theSundaily
30,000 bantah persempadanan
semula di Selangor...
Lebih 30,000 tandatangan membantah cadangan persempadanan semula kawasan pilihan raya bagi kerusi Parlimen dan Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) di Selangor diserahkan kepada Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) hari ini.
Secara keseluruhan, 200 bantahan dibuat terhadap cara persempadanan semula dijalankan di Selangor. Satu bantahan memerlukan minimum 100 tandatangan.
Bersih 2.0 and Pakatan Harapan (PH) ketika menyerahkan bantahan itu, menggesa SPR tidak tergesa-gesa melaksanakan persempadanan semula itu, sebaliknya perlu berhati-hati supaya ia adil.
Esok ialah hari terakhir menyerahkan bantahan kepada SPR berhubung persempadanan semula di Selangor.
Bercakap kepada media di sini, Presiden PH, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, berkata bantahan itu dikumpul dengan bantuan PH dan Bersih.
“Bantahan ini mewakili suara rakyat Selangor yang berharap SPR bertindak lebih profesional dan adil, tanpa memihak mana-mana parti politik.
“Bantahan itu juga dibuat bagi menjamin hak pengundi Selangor,” katanya.
Presiden PKR itu berkata, SPR harus mendengar bantahan pengundi.
“Kami berharap SPR mengambil kira bantahan ini bagi memastikan keadilan di semua kerusi DUN dan Parlimen. Jumlah pengundi yang tidak seimbang adalah ketara di Selangor, contohnya N01 Sabak mempunyai 15,033 pengundi, manakala N29 Seri Serdang mempunyai 74,563 pengundi.
“Dalam cadangan ke-2, kerusi Parlimen seperti Gombak, Ampang, Pandan, Kuala Selangor dan Tanjong Karang paling terjejas dan kami harap SPR mengambil kira bantahan ini, khasnya pengundi kawasan berkenaan.”
Sementara itu, wakil rakyat PKR di Sri Andalas, Xavier Jeyakumar menggesa SPR tidak tergesa-gesa menjalankan proses itu hanya kerana tarikh akhir sudah ditetapkan.
“Lebih penting mengkaji bantahan dan mendengar apa yang mereka ingin katakan sebelum membuat keputusan,” kata pengarah pilihan raya PH Selangor.
Pengerusi Bersih 2.0, Maria Chin Abdullah yang bersetuju dengan Jeyakumar berkata SPR tidak perlu tergesa-gesa melakukan proses itu.
“Tarikh akhir sebenarnya ialah Oktober, jadi kami tidak faham mengapa mereka tergesa-gesa melakukan persempadanan semula. Adakah ia dilakukan demi pilihan raya? Saya tidak pasti mengapa SPR tergesa-gesa.
“Tahun lepas, inkuiri tersebut dijalankan semasa Krismas, sesuatu yang tidak adil.”
Timbalan Presiden PH, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin berkata, jika bantahan itu mempunyai merit, SPR patut menerima cadangan mereka, bukannya mengambil tindakan yang akan merugikan pengundi Selangor.
“Saya minta SPR mengambil masa meneliti setiap bantahan.
“Ini mengenai hak rakyat, keadilan, demokrasi dan apa yang dijamin Perlembagaan Persekutuan,” katanya.
Inkuiri awam ke-2 akan diadakan selepas pameran awam syor kajian semula persempadanan di Selangor yang dikemas kini, berakhir esok. - fmt
Chong Wei -"bukan saya"...
Badminton ace Lee Chong Wei has denied that a sex video which has gone viral on social media is his.
Speaking to Sin Chew Daily, the national shuttler said the person in the video does not even look like him.
“He (the person in the video) does not even look like me.
“Why is this happening? Perhaps, some people just have too much free time (to spread such clips),” he added.
Lee also revealed that numerous people had sent the video to him.
“Do you want me to send (the video) to you?” he joked.
“A lot of people sent (the video) to me. There are all sorts of people out there, I am too lazy to be bothered about them,” he added.
A search for “Lee Chong Wei sex video” on the internet found numerous websites claiming to have the video on their respective sites.
The Sin Chew article came in the wake of news that the shuttler’s biopic titled “Lee Chong Wei: Rise of the Legend” would be making its world premiere on March 9 at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil.
Responding to a question, Lee said he would not file a police report on the matter because it is not him in the video.
However, Lee told The Malaysian Insight that he will lodge a police report today to find out the culprit.
He did not rule out the possibility of people sabotaging his movie. - mk

Noh Omar caught red-handed giving RM50 to rural Malays mums but RM100 to urban Chinese mums...
As the housing minister and Selangor hopeful, Nor Omar, reacted with fury today at being called out over handing cash to voters, it dawned on the wider world that maybe this man didn’t even realise that he was acting shamefully?
One thing made clear from the excuse that the portly politician came up with, as he ripped into critics, was that this was certainly not his own cash or even cash raised by his political party. Nor Omar today confirmed that it was public money, purportedly taken out of taxes by the government:
He said it was a school aid programme that benefitted 3.2 million recipients, and he was distributing the aid at a Parent-Teacher Association meeting.
“Those who slander don’t know what the government has done for the people
“The Bantuan Awal Persekolahan programme is not new, it has been implemented for quite some time,” [Malaysian Insight]
There are, as any educated adult can see, numerous glaring flaws in the minister’s justification of his actions, performed not just once but numerous times on several occasions
Green RM50 note to ‘easy-to-please’ Malay Rural Mum?
First of all, there is the small matter that Nor Omar’s official explanation and excuse to news outlets today totally contradicted the smug explanation for the handout that he gave in his own Facebook postings at the time, earlier this month.
Those Facebook postings (from where these revealing pictures originate) give a clearly different version of events. Here he is, posting on February 3rd, about one of at least three of these events recorded by himself, where he explained why he was handing out cash at his own old school:
What one would expect to see in such a programme, would be a line of bureaucratic note-takers armed with qualification forms and handing out receipts (after all ‘loans’ have first to be qualified for and then to be repaid).
To be clear, the last thing a minister ought to be personally involved in is the handing out the actual cash through such government schemes: how deeply inappropriate, after all; how shamefully menial and how terribly awkward, when inevitably some constituents will prove elegible and others not?
It is therefore blatantly obvious to all observers that this cash hand-out was merely excused by the government programme, as a transparent figleaf for its actual purpose, which (as indicated on Nor Omah’s own Facebook) was to gull decent mums from parents’ associations across his constituency into beleiving that somehow they either personally owe Nor Omah something or that they owe his boss Najib Razak and their political party something.
Discrimination? A fat purple RM100 note to ‘sniffier’ Chinese Urban Mum?!
Possibly even more sinister and pernicious is the fact that our review of Nor Omah’s Facebook page appears to indicate that he has cynically discriminated over how much cash he is prepared to hand out through this ‘government scheme’ to different voters.
Indeed, for a party that purports to be dedicated to uplifting rural Malay folk (a noble cause indeed) Nor appears from the photographs to be offering half the amount to mums from this category i.e. green RM50 notes, compared to the RM100 notes he is photographed handing out to urban mums from the Chinese community (also doubtless deserving folk).
Given UMNO is generally discriminatory in its policies against minority communities, like the urban Chinese Malaysians (in order to catch votes), such an act has to rank as utter hypocrisy. Why should crisp purple notes be handed out to Chinese Malaysian school mums, clearly to be bought at a higher price, compared to the green half-price notes handed to the trusting Malay rural folk that the party claims to champion?
Selangor dah selamat bersama #HARAPAN. Ko simpanlah nko punya hero tu
And how does all this work under the loan scheme devised by the Bantuan Awal Persekolahan programme referred to by Nor Omar?
Nor Omah needs to wake up quick, just like his party, and realise just how dreadful all this bribery appears in the eyes of the rest of the world. Indeed, once the scales have fallen from the eyes of those deceived potential voters who took his cash, they will rightly feel angry at the ploy he is trying to pull.
To clear up this matter, Nor Omar needs to provide detailed documentation, immediately, to show exactly where those fat bundles of cash he was shown clutching in his hands really came from. Let’s see the money trail and determine if it really came from government programmes, which are still generally managed by civil servants who attempt to perform their legitimate jobs in Malaysia or whether those notes came from some other less traceable source linked to his boss, Najib Razak? - srr

Seorang pembantu rumah dari Indonesia yang didakwa didera majikannya, meninggal dunia akibat kecederaan dialaminya di Hospital Bukit Mertajam, hari ini.
Mangsa bernama Adelina meninggal dunia pada jam 4.45 petang tadi. Punca kematian belum ditentukan.
Wanita berusia 21 tahun dari Medan itu bekerja di sebuah kediaman di Taman Kota Permai, di sini.
Beliau dikesan cedera di tangan dan kakinya oleh seorang jiran yang prihatin.
Jiran itu berkata, Adelina dikesan tidur bersebelahan seekor anjing Rottweiler setiap hari hampir 2 bulan dan beliau enggan bercakap dengan mereka yang menyapanya.
Jiran turut mendakwa terdengar jeritan yang menjadi kebiasaan selang sehari.
Mengesyaki sesuatu tidak kena, jiran itu menghubungi seorang wartawan yang kemudiannya memaklumkan pejabat Ahli Parlimen Bukit Mertajam, Steven Sim.
Ahli Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai (MPSP), Joshua Woo dan rakan sekerjanya menemui pengadu pada jam 4 petang semalam dan mendapati Adelina terduduk di anjung kereta.
Seorang wanita berusia 60 tahun yang juga majikan Adelina meminta mereka “tidak menjaga tepi kainnya” dan tunggu anak perempuannya pulang.
Anak perempuannya menafikan mendera atau menganiaya pembantu rumah itu, tetapi mengakui beliau pernah menampar Adelina “sekali atau 2”.
Wanita itu kemudian menjelaskan kecederaan dialami Adelina ialah akibat “bahan kimia kuat” kerana mendakwa pembantu rumahnya membuang air besar dalam saliran dapur menyebabkan ia tersumbat dan diminta menuang bahan kimia dalam longkang itu.
Beliau mendakwa Adelina tertumpah bahan kimia itu atas kaki dan tangannya sehingga menyebabkan melecur.
Wanita itu kemudiannya membeli iodin untuk Adelina, namun ubat itu memburukkan luka dan proses penyembuhan.
Difahamkan, tangan dan kaki Adelina bernanah.
Woo kemudiannya memberitahu kumpulan menyokong pekerja asing, Tenaganita dan membuat laporan polis.
Ketua Polis Daerah Seberang Perai Tengah, ACP Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid berkata kematian amah itu disiasat sebagai kes bunuh.
Katanya, kes itu pada awalnya diklasifikasikan di bawah Seksyen 324 Kanun Keseksaan kerana sengaja menyebabkan kecederaan menggunakan senjata atau benda berbahaya lain.
Nik Ros berkata, wanita itu sudah bekerja dengan majikan kira-kira 2 tahun dan dibawa ke balai polis oleh majikannya.
“Apabila kami cuba bercakap dengannya, beliau masih takut dan enggan memberi sebarang keterangan,” katanya kepada wartawan hari ini.
Beliau berkata, Adelina kemudiannya dibawa ke Hospital Bukit Mertajam untuk dirawat.
Katanya, 2 beradik berusia 36 dan 39 tahun itu ditahan untuk siasatan. - fmt
NFC now a tangle of weeds
as Rafizi goes to jail..
As those who exposed the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) scandal are marched off to jail, the site of the ambitious cattle rearing project lies in a tangle of weeds. No cows and no workers were spotted at the 600-ha NFC site in Gemas, Negri Sembilan, where RM250 million in public funds were sunk into a project that has since been left to rot.
No one has been found guilty for the failures of the project. But on February 7, Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli, who exposed NFC’s failures, was sentenced to 30 months in jail for revealing bank documents related to the project.
The Malaysian Insight recently visited the site, and found two rundown buildings and a crumbling guardhouse at the end of a dirt road a few kilometres from the Gemas-Tampin road. It is a short drive from one of the most modern army bases in the country, the Syed Sirajuddin camp.
Past an iconic arch that used to spell out National Feedlot Centre, the dusty road led to a pair of rusty locked gates, beyond which were the two buildings. The only signs of life were the overgrown weeds and the steady drone of crickets. A worker at a nearby oil palm estate said the place has been unoccupied since four years ago.
"You can see a huge block of buildings there, and one of them was used as a quarters for the workers. The signboard is not that clear so watch out for the water tank," he told The Malaysian Insight.
"No one stays there any more. No livestock, no workers," said the man who requested anonymity. He was unsure where the workers and the cattle went.
Cows and condos
The feedlot promised to breed 8,000 head of cattle by 2010, but the RM74 million centre in Gemas had only bred 3,289, or 41% of the target, the auditor-general’s report said. The project was supposed to enhance the country’s food security and reduce the need for beef imports.
The feedlot was run by NFC, which was headed by Dr Mohamed Salleh Ismail, the husband of Wanita Umno chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil. The company also received an RM250 million soft loan from the government during the Abdullah Ahmad Badawi administration.
In 2011, Rafizi exposed the cattle breeder’s purchases of luxury condominium units. Salleh was charged with four counts of misappropriating a total of RM49.7 million from NFC the same year, but was later acquitted of all charges.
In November 2016, Rafizi lost a defamation suit and was ordered to pay Salleh and NFC RM200,000 in damages for claiming that a bank loan taken by the company was used to purchase a condominium.
On February 7, Rafizi and former Public Bank clerk Johari Mohamad were found guilty and sentenced to 30 months’ jail by the Shah Alam Sessions Court. The two had breached the Banking and Financial Institutions Act (Bafia) when they leaked account information related to NFC.
After the scandal hit national headlines, NFC announced in early 2013 that Kirimitonas Agro Sdn Bhd would be taking over the project, including liabilities, such as the RM250 million loan from the government. Kirimitonas Agro is a joint-venture company between Otoshitos Sdn Bhd and Hannan Food Co. Hannan is Japan’s second-largest cattle operator specialising in the production of wagyu beef.
However, Prime Minister Najib Razak said in Parliament in 2013 that the deal was cancelled as the government and Kirimitonas had failed to reach a deal. Kirimitonas still exists and the directors are two Japanese men, and Malaysians Nik Mod Amin and Za’ba Hasrin. The last financial statement the company filed was in 2016, according to a check with Companies Commission.
The Malaysian Insight is trying to contact Nik Mod, who is currently overseas.
According to past media statements, the Negri Sembilan government said it was in the process of taking back the land it leased to NFC.
In 2014, Menteri Besar Mohamad Hasan told the Negri Sembilan Assembly that the 607.5-hectare site was leased to NFC in 2007 through the Menteri Besar Incorporated (MBI).
Mohamad, who is also the State Assemblyman for Rantau, said the state government planned to place on the farm 10 cattle and sheep breeders, who would share and manage its facilities. themalaysianinsight
Rafizi : Defeat BN's spin with facts...
Q: Was Rafizi charged for defamation
Q: Then what was he charged for?
A: He was charged under BAFIA, for leaking a company's bank details.
Q: Was the leaked information real?
A: The information was real.
Q: So why was Rafizi charged if the details were real?
A: Because according to BAFIA, it is a crime to expose a company's banking details.
Q: Then why expose if it's a crime?
A: Because the said case is of public interest.
Q: What public interest?
A: A sum of taxpayers' money was borrowed to a company. But instead of using the funds for its original purpose, the compamy used the money to buy condominiums and expensive cars for himself and his children.
Q: Why the fuss? As long as it's a loan, the company can repay right?
A: The company never repaid the loan.
Q: How much was the loan to the company?
A: RM250 million.
Q: Wow. That's a lot! So did the company face the music?
A: No. Nothing happened to them. The government did not charge them, and never bothered to ask the company to repay the loan.
Q: Weird. Why does our laws punish people who expose corruption and let corrupted ones go free?
A: Because the laws today are not used to protect the people. It is used to protect corrupted and powerful people in the government.

Orang lain semua sudah beredar mengikut arah North Wing. Hanya saya seorang diri saja yang gigih berjalan kaki menuruni eskalator yang telah berhenti berfungsi dan saya fikir nak keluar mengikut South Wing.
Apabila sudah sampai di Ground Floor, saya mendapati semua pintu telah dikunci dan keadaan pada waktu itu sangat sunyi sepi. Pengawal Keselamatan pun tidak kelihatan.
Kemudian saya ternampak ada dua orang awek India lepak di Kaunter Pertanyaan. Mujur ada orang, jadi bolehlah saya bertanya macam mana nak keluar dari situ sebab semua pintu sudah dikunci.
Baru saja mahu bertanya, mereka berdua gelak-gelak kambing pada saya. Saya pun malas nak fikir, lalu bertanya jalan keluar.
Tetapi mereka kata, mereka berdua sudah bertahun duduk di situ dan inilah pertama kali orang bertanyakan soalan seperti itu pada mereka.
Saya dah mula rasa cuak pada masa itu. Saya bertanya semula, apa yang mereka maksudkan 'sudah bertahun duduk di situ'?
Saya pun apa lagi, terus melarikan diri dengan segala kudrat yang ada. Tahu-tahu saya sudah berada di luar premis Starbuck. Baca seterusnya...
Sia-sia Najib serbu Pagoh...
Perdana Menteri, Najib Razak hari ini "menyerbu" Pagoh buat kali pertama sejak beliau memecat Muhyiddin Yassin sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri pada Julai 2016 yang lalu.
Dikhabarkan beribu-ribu orang menyambut beliau dan bersusun-susun pula bas dari seluruh pelusuk Johor turut digunakan untuk mengangkut orangramai ke Pagoh.
Ternampaklah ramai orang yang menyambut Najib dan seolah-olahnya beliau disokong dengan begitu padu sekali.
Mesej kedatangan Najib tidak lain ialah untuk menyeru pengundi Pagoh agar menolak Muhyiddin dalam pilihanraya akan datang.
Muhyiddin disifatkan Najib sebagai pengkhianat Melayu kerana sekarang ini sudah berkawan dengan DAP untuk menumbangkan UMNO dan BN dalam pilihanraya akan datang.
Di Muar ada empat kawasan Parlimen di sekitarnya iaitu Pagoh, Bakri, Ledang, selain Muar sendiri.
Dalam perkembangan politik semasa setelah Muhyiddin dipecat dan kini menjadi Presiden Bersatu, Pagohlah yang paling menjadi sebutan ramai.
Pada PRU 13 lalu, Muhyiddin menang di Pagoh atas tiket BN menewaskan calon Pas dengan majoriti 12,842 undi.
Sebab itu Najib sanggup "menyerbu" Pagoh untuk memastikan kerusi itu dapat ditawan semula oleh BN. Baca seterusnya...

The Guilty Cannot Sleep Easy
While The Victim Sleeps In Jail.
Folks, do you recall that Whistleblowers Act? Well they can take the act, roll it up and shove it up where the sun does not shine. It has become a useless piece of toil_t paper. It was crafted after Flying Buffet 1 and Flying Buffet 2. (Yes Dato, go and check the language.)
At one briefing I was informed that if you want to be a whistle blower, then you absolutely cannot talk to anyone (aka Press, Media) before you seek protection under the Whistleblowers Act. If you speak to the Media, then you are no more protected under the Whistleblowers Act.
I think this is a brilliant idea to protect the crooks. If even the Head Legal Eagle can be fired from his job overnite, how much protection do you think the Whistleblowers Act is going to help you? In other countries, you can speak to the Media, you can speak to whoever you want. The whistle blowers acts they have there will still protect you. The FBIs Witness Protection Program is a good example.
Back to the thieving people. You know you have done wrong. Legally and cleverly you have dotted all the 'I's and crossed all the 't's. Pandai lah korang. The paperwork is proper. You are the people who made the system. You know how it works. So you have escaped.

The idea was buy the cows, fatten the cows, sell the cows, make profit from selling the cows and then use the profit to buy the Nissan Murano, buy those condos etc. That would have been ok. But that takes too long isnt it? It also takes something called work. These concepts are alien. It does not fit the party image.
So just cut short the movie script, take the money now and buy the cars and condos - for cash. I met the boy who sold the Murano for cash. They too have gone bust. Sad betul. Another easy money story that bit the dust. Never ending.
So you folks are happy now? Sleep easy at night? Enjoy sweet dreams? Attend weekend parties and binges? Oh I forgot, you dont need weekends. Every night is Saturday night. It was public funds. You dont have to go to school to know that. Taxpayers money.
Lets put it another way. It was a loan. A loan is a loan is a loan. Ok, we got that. Now, lets say it was not a gubberment loan. Say it was a CIMB Loan for RM250.0 Million. The CIMB loan was disbursed, to buy the cows.Then the cows got held up. The cows were late. The cows did not show up. No cows or not enough cows.
Do you think CIMB would have agreed if you said, 'Ok, cows are late. Cant do much about that. Meantime, we will use the loan money to buy condos, buy the Murano, set up a couple of high end stake joints etc' ? Do you think CIMB would have agreed? Totally impossible isnt it.
You can only do this type of crap because it was a gubberment loan. As I said, you created the system. You are in the inside loop.
The young man did not dig out the info by himself. It was yet another whistleblower who leaked the information. They knew what was happening was wrong. They knew what they were doing was morally and ethically right. They were brave people. They are the good guys. You are not.
And now the good guys are sleeping in jail. They have wives, children and family.Forget about their loss of income, paying the rent, paying the car instalments etc. Forget about a young mother left to care for her kids all by herself. Its going to be tough. Daddy is in jail.
But who assures the wife and kids that daddy is safe and secure while he is sleeping in jail? Who assures the family ? The thieves are still whooping it up. So you folks are happy now? You folks sleep easy at night? You still have sweet dreams? You attend weekend parties and binges?
You still have some of that cash lying around? Buy a ticket to that stone building.Go weep and wail. You know - to wash off your sins. The stone building will not speak. It will just stare back at you.The building does not even know you are there.
The young man is sleeping in jail tonite. He will be there for a while.Because of you.
All the good people in the country are so proud of him.
We are so proud that in our midst there is a young man who stood up so courageously against common thieves.
He is a hero. You are common thieves. Sleep with that tonite. And every nite. - ostb
From Economic Domination To Direct Rule...
Pahang, more then any other state, is the beachhead for China’s immigrant invasion into Malaysia. Pahang is also where this I**** has his base.
Jalan Gebeng in Kuantan is now Jalan Qinzhou. The Kuantan Port being built by the Chinese can control all of the Western/South China Sea.
Are the people of Pahang aware of what all this will mean for them? Are the rural Malays, whose votes in GE 14 will determine our future, aware of this gradual invasion of their state by China?
In Sudan and Sri Lanka, some of the management and workers are seconded from the Chinese Army. Is it any different in Kuantan?
How many workers from China are now in Kuantan? We know that once China dominates any country in the financial and investments sectors, they will bring with them Chinese from China to work in that economy/country.
Foreign workers/pendatangs already in Pahang will be replaced by these workers from China. Soon in Pahang there will be investors, financiers, management and workers from China – all migrants welcomed by the Idiot and his corrupt cohorts.
Welcome because this I**** and his government is actively selling us all out to China to line their own pockets with dedak. At what costs? Soon economic domination by China will translate into direct rule over Pahang – if that has not already started in Pahang!
I hope the Malays who are ex Army, Police and Home Guard retirees in Pahang, will not forget what communists brought with them in the past. God help our country...
