KENAPA HADI TAK CADANGKAN HUDUD KE ATAS NAJIB?

Amat mengejutkan apabila Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang mengeluarkan kenyataan menjelang sambutan Aidilfitri tahun ini dengan mendakwa negara asing yang menyiasat skandal 1MDB sebagai cubaan campur tangan kuasa asing.
Kenyataan tersebut adalah satu kenyataan yang tidak bertanggungjawab dan amat menyedihkan di mana ia boleh mengelirukan rakyat.
Ini kerana agama dijadikan perisai bagi menutup salahlaku yang dilakukan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak dan kroni-kroninya dalam skandal berskala mega ini.
Kenyataan Presiden PAS yang mahukan undang-undang Malaysia bertindak menyelesaikan skandal 1MDB adalah satu kenyataan naif seorang ahli Parlimen.
Ini kerana laporan Jawatankuasa Kira-kira Wang Negara (PAC) yang dibekalkan kepada beliau telah mendedahkan bahawa 1MDB telah membayar kepada Aabar BVI sebuah syarikat palsu yang ditubuhkan untuk mencuri wang 1MDB, sehinggakan IPIC dan Aabar sebenar menyaman 1MDB dan kerajaan Malaysia.
Walaupun dengan bukti yang nyata ini, pihak berkuasa di negara ini termasuk Peguam Negara, Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) dan Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) masih gagal bertindak sehingga sekarang.
Malahan, peguam negara sendiri gagal mendakwa Najib walaupun bukti kemasukan wang ke akaun peribadi beliau sebanyak RM2.6 billion dari akaun Tanore dan RM42 juta dari SRC yang meminjam wang KWAP ditunjukkan sendiri oleh beliau.
Ketua Pesuruhjaya SPRM sendiri telah mengeluarkan kenyataan tidak akan menyiasat skandal 1MDB.
Pihak polis pula sampai ke hari ini masih menyiasat sedangkan Jho Low dibiarkan bebas.
Sikap membisu institusi penguatkuasaan undang-undang negara dalam skandal 1MDB ini telah mencemar keluhuran undang-undang negara ini. Ironinya, Presiden PAS pula boleh percayakan mereka.
Tindakan Jabatan Keadilan (DOJ) Amerika Syarikat menyiasat dan menyita aset-aset mewah bukanlah satu campurtangan ke atas negara ini.
Sebaliknya, tindakan DOJ tersebut adalah akibat salahlaku jenayah berkaitan penyelewengan skandal 1MDB kerana ia melibatkan pelanggaran undang-undang dan sistem kewangan Amerika Syarikat.
Bukan sahaja Amerika Syarikat yang menyiasat skandal ini, malahan banyak lagi negara lain terutamanya Singapura yang setakat hari ini, telah menghukum lima orang pegawai bank dan mendenda lapan bank dengan dua bank Swiss diarahkan ditutup.
Negara-negara luar hanya bertindak atas nama integriti dan digniti yang gagal dilakukan pentadbiran negara hari ini.
Seharusnya, Presiden PAS tidak lagi membela Najib yang terpalit dengan skandal 1MDB. Kezaliman tidak seharusnya dikompromi.
Alangkah gembiranya umat Islam di negara ini jika beliau mampu menyelar Najib dengan mengatakan hukum hudud harus digunakan terhadap perdana menteri.
Tidakkah rompak dan curi itu kesalahan di bawah hudud yang disebut jelas di dalam al-Quran. Saya bimbang keyakinan rakyat terhadap keadilan hukum hudud boleh terhakis dengan pendirian Presiden PAS yang gagal bertindak terhadap pemerintah.
Sedangkan Rasulullah SAW sendiri pernah bersabda akan menggunakan hudud terhadap puterinya sendiri.

POWER STRUGGLE IN PAS BREAKS OUT: ‘HADI THROWS THEM OUT, TUAN IBRAHIM BRINGS THEM BACK’ – PAS NO.2 REHIRES LEADERS FIRED BY HADI

POLITICAL observers believe a power struggle may be looming for Islamist party PAS after deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man reappointed several veteran party leaders recently stripped of their portfolios back to key positions, in the absence of party president Abdul Hadi Awang.
PAS veteran Mustafa Ali was one of the key figures, brought back to head a new PAS advisory board.
Long-time elections director Mustafa was replaced by Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar, the former political secretary of Hadi Awang, during a restructuring in early May.
In a WhatsApp reply to The Malaysian Insight, Tuan Ibrahim confirmed Mustafa’s appointment.
“Yes, he is the chairman,” he said.
The 72-year-old Mustafa told The Malaysian Insight that he had been informed about the appointment but had not received any formal letter.
“I understand that my appointment was made during the second meeting chaired by Tuan Ibrahim,” he said.
Other PAS veteran politicians like Dr Sanusi Daeng Mariok (ex-vice president), Abdul Halim Abdul Rahman (ex-treasurer of PAS headquarters) and Subky Latif (a PAS veteran writer) have also been roped in by Tuan Ibrahim.

Hadi, who is on extended vacation after undergoing heart surgery at the National Heart Institute on May 16, had ordered all four men to be stripped of their positions.
PAS political analyst Mohamad Hisomuddin Bakar said that Tuan Ibrahim’s move to bring back the four veteran politicians was seen as an effort to stabilise the party, and bringing in people Tuan Ibrahim could trust and work with.
“Hadi throws them out, but Tuan Ibrahim is bringing them back,” said Hisomuddin, who is also the executive chairman of the Ilham Centre Research Facility.
PAS has not released any official statement about Mustafa and the other three members’ appointments, which some say could also signal the possibility of a brewing conflict between Hadi Awang and Tuan Ibrahim.

MALAYS ONLY? INDIAN CANTEEN OPERATOR FIRED FROM COLLEGE FOR NOT BEING ‘SHARIAH COMPLIANT’ BUT MIC DENIES IT’S RACISM

The termination of an Indian food service provider at Politeknik Seberang Perai was not a racial issue, said MIC education bureau chief P Kamalanathan.
“I wish to stress here that the issue is not a racial issue as in total four contractors were terminated based on administrative reasons,” said Kamalanathan, who is also the deputy education minister.
According to earlier news reports, the Indian food canteen operator, who was the only non-Muslim canteen operator on campus, was told to cease operations on grounds that his stall was not “syariah compliant”.
A Facebook post on the matter, from someone who appears to be a student of the college, has been widely shared online and on phone messaging services.
According to one such message, a petition by some 300 students against the removal of the only Indian food stall on campus was unsuccessful.
A spokesperson for the polytechnic has reportedly denied allegations of foul play, according to Free Malaysia Today. The spokesperson said a police report was lodged on June 26 over the contents of the viral messages.
Three non-Indians also axed

The spokesperson had also said he could not make any other comments as the director of the institution was on leave but added that a full investigation into the matter would be initiated on Thursday when the director returned from his break.
Kamalanathan said the MIC president S Subramaniam is very concerned with accusations of racism against the canteen operator. He said that the party president had ordered him to investigate the matter.
“MIC will not tolerate any discrimination if the accusation is found to be true,” he said.
He explained that he had contacted the director of the institution who clarified that four contractors, including the Indian food stall operator, had their service terminated due to the non-adherence to the terms of the contract.
The other three operators who had their service terminated were Malay, he said.
Kamalanathan said MIC will follow-up on this matter with the Higher Education Ministry and the director of the institution to ensure that it is resolved soon.

AIR SHOCKER – MALINDO FLIGHT THE NEXT TO ESCAPE TRAGEDY: GEARBOX FRACTURE, ENGINE SEIZURE FORCES MALAYSIAN PLANE TO DIVERT TO DELHI AIRPORT

A MALINDO Airlines jetliner en route from Lahore to Kuala Lumpur was forced to divert to Delhi on Sunday, following an in-flight engine failure.
Flight OD132, a Boeing 737-900 capable of carrying up to 189 passengers, left Allama Iqbal International Airport, Lahore, for Kuala Lumpur International Airport at approximately 9.50pm. It was about 150nm southeast of Delhi and flying at cruising altitude of 35,000ft when the crew reported the right-hand engine had failed.
The aircraft diverted to Delhi and landed safely 10 minutes later.
A post-flight inspection found that the accessory gearbox in the CFM56 engine had fractured and leaked oil, leading to the engine seizing.
Malindo has been contacted for comment.

THE FACT IS, THE PLANE COULD HAVE BLOWN UP: PILOT CONFIRMS ENGINE PROBLEM ON AIRASIA FLIGHT COULD HAVE BEEN ‘CATASTROPHIC’

KUALA LUMPUR – The “technical issue” on an AirAsia X plane flying from Perth to Kuala Lumpur on Sunday could have resulted in tragedy, said a former Airbus check and training captain.
According to Australian news website Perth Now, the veteran pilot said the plane could have lost the entire faulty engine, which would have ripped off its fuel lines.
The Airbus A330 in question is believed to have lost a turbine blade on one its engines, which resulted in an imbalance that caused the plane to rattle “like a washing machine”.
“When an engine has severe vibrations, it must be shut down immediately as the damage that can be inflicted is immense,” the former captain was quoted as saying.
“The engine can detach from the wing, which could be catastrophic. Fuel lines (could be) ripped open and electrics severely damaged or degraded,” he added, stressing that the incident should have been treated like an “engine fire”.
The flight from Perth to Kuala Lumpur diverted back to Perth after “technical issues” with the engine caused severe vibrations in the flight.
The incident met with added controversy as the pilot reportedly asked passengers to pray for their safety.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has classified the incident as serious.
The ATSB will investigate why the plane continued vibrating after the problem was detected and why the pilot did not opt to land at a nearer airport.
The pilots of the Airbus A330 opted not to divert to Learmonth, which was 25 minutes away when the incident occurred, and instead flew back to Perth that was 90 minutes away.
AirAsia said yesterday that it was also investigating the incident together with Roll Royce, the manufacturer of the engines used on the A330.

EX JHO LOW LOVERS, PARIS HILTON & ELVA HSIAO, THE NEXT TO BE ASKED TO RETURN HIS GIFTS? AFTER ROSMAH MANSOR & MIRANDA KERR, WHO NEXT HAVE FALLEN ‘VICTIM’ TO 1MDB PLAYBOY?

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) in its third civil forfeiture suit on the 1MDB affair alleged around US$4.5 billion from the firm was misappropriated and also highlighted the purported masterminds, chief among them, it claimed, was Penang-born businessperson Low Taek Jho, better known as Jho Low.
The DOJ covered in detail the alleged money trail from 1MDB to the bank accounts of Low and his associates, but on the side, also provided a glimpse of how he apparently courted the women of his dreams, supposedly using 1MDB-linked funds.
The filing revealed how Low had showered Australian model Miranda Kerr with increasingly expensive jewellery, all in a matter of nine months.
Kerr’s divorce with Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom was first publicised in late 2013 and Low allegedly began showering the Australian model with diamonds beginning February 2014.
However, the most interesting details of the apparent courtship were between July and August 2014 when Low invited Kerr’ on his US$250 million superyacht, The Equanimity, which he also allegedly purchased with 1MDB-linked funds.
The DOJ filing claimed Low brought Kerr on a “multi-day excursion” onboard the Equanimity. It did not specify where the trip took place but it was likely to have been in the Mediterranean Sea.
The Equanimity is hard to miss
While Low took measures to hide his tracks from services such as flight trackers, he could not escape the cameras of the international community of plane and ship spotters, a hobby similar to bird watching.
Low’s superyacht was spotted multiple times at Marina Real in Valencia, Spain between July 10 and July 17, 2014. In August that year, the superyacht was again spotted in Faliro Marina in Athens, Greece.
The Equanimity’s location between these periods was unclear but it places the superyacht within the Mediterranean Sea.
Coincidentally, Low’s private jet, a Bombardier Global 5000 with the registration number N689WM was spotted over Munich, Germany on July 31 and again on Aug 10 at Corfu International Airport, Greece.
Meticulous planning
During the apparently romantic trip somewhere in the waters between Valencia and Athens, Low had allegedly meticulously prepared to present Kerr with multiple jewellery pieces over a period of a few days.
“The excursion was planned at Low’s direction by a high-end concierge service, and meticulous planning went into arranging the manner in which Low would present each piece of the matching diamond jewellery set to Kerr,” said the DOJ.
The whole thing took a month’s worth of planning with Low first approaching jeweller Lorraine Schwartz on June 17, according to the DOJ.
Low had apparently even sent a picture of a woman with jewellery, possibly that of Kerr, as a reference of what he would like to acquire.
He allegedly finally settled on a matching diamond necklace, earring, bracelet and ring worth US$1.98 million.
According to the DOJ, it was delivered in London on or about July 30. Low’s jet was in Munich a day later.
Initialled ‘MK’
The DOJ claimed that Low also had a penchant of inscribing Kerr’s initials on the jewellery he gifted to her.
For Valentine’s Day, Low allegedly gifted Kerr an 11.72-carat heart-shaped diamond, which cost US$1.29 million, in which he had her initials inscribed.
He also instructed for the jewellery pieces he gifted to Kerr during their excursion in the Mediterranian to be inscribed with her initials.
Two months after Low’s multi-day excursion with Kerr in the Mediterranean, he again allegedly gifted her jewellery, this time an 11-carat diamond earrings which he bought for US$1.05 million.
Finally in November 2014, Low allegedly bought his most expensive jewellery for Kerr yet, an 8.88-carat diamond pendant.
Low was allegedly billed US$4.8 million but only paid US$3.8 million. It was unclear if he paid the remaining sum at a later date.
Kerr married Snapchat founder and billionaire Evan Spiegal in May 2015.
Earlier today, it was reported that Kerr had surrendered all the gifts to the DOJ, valued at around US$8 million.
Other romantic interests
Interestingly, prior to the alleged attempts to court Kerr, the DOJ said Low had purchased an engagement ring at US$1.147 million for an unidentified woman in 2012.
The engagement ring was invoiced in November 2012.
In 2012, Low’s courtship of Taiwanese singer Elva Hsiao was made public through a video of an extravagant and romantic dinner which was uploaded on the internet.
The dinner was rumoured to cost GB£1 million, took place on a private beach at the luxury Atlantis Hotel Resort at the Palm in Dubai.
The video showed them arriving in a black Rolls-Royce and later strolled on the beach where candles were laid out in a gigantic Valentine heart.After dining on a luxurious set while being serenaded by a harpist and violinist, several parachutists descended from the sky to present Hsiao with jewellery by Swiss luxury brand Chopard.
Low reportedly proposed to Hsiao, who was moved to tears.
However, Taiwanese news organisation Apple Daily reported that Hsiao rejected Low’s proposal and saw him as a “little brother”.
Low had also reportedly wooed US socialite Paris Hilton in 2010. The duo was photographed clubbing together with bottles of Louis Roedre Cristal, which costs GB£600 a bottle.

AirAsia boss backs pilot for suggesting prayer on tense flight

Kamarudin Meranun says he would have done the same thing, and that the pilot was calm and in control.
Kamarudin-Meranun-1
PETALING JAYA: AirAsia Bhd chairman Kamarudin Meranun has defended the pilot of AirAsia X flight D7237 for asking passengers to pray during a tense period in the aborted journey on Sunday, saying that he would have done the same thing.
He said the pilot was calm and in control, and as a “believer” had asked everyone to pray with him as he guided the plane to safety.
“What is wrong with asking for prayers in whatever religion especially when you are in a tight position, seeking divine intervention while doing whatever humanely possible?” he said in a Facebook posting today.
“Making statements are always easy when you are safely on the ground. Such a situation will never be easy to manage,” he added.
Kamarudin said the pilot’s objective was clear in wanting to land the aircraft safely and ensure safety of all on board, which is what eventually happened.
“I would have done the same thing,” he said.
“As such, I stand by the pilot and his team, both as an individual (in) public and management/shareholder of AirAsia.”
DAP’s Zaid Ibrahim had yesterday criticised the pilot’s suggestion and for saying that he too would be praying in the hope that the plane lands safely.
“Good lord, I much prefer pilot don’t tell me death is imminent,” the former minister said in a posting on Twitter.
“Pilot has to give hope, and leave the rest to God and the passengers. If AirAsia are big into prayers; engage proper Imam and priest,” Zaid added.
The Airbus A330 with 359 passengers encountered technical difficulties shortly after take-off from Perth to Kuala Lumpur, but landed safely back at the Perth International Airport at 10am on Sunday,
Meanwhile a Facebook posting yesterday by a passenger named Madeline Wright which lauded the flight’s captain for his conduct during the emergency went viral.
“Our reassuring captain talked us through the whole situation and gave us every piece of information he had,” she said.
“The way we all cooperated and remained calm throughout the event made it easier for crew aboard to help us and for our captain to fly us to safety. No one screamed.”
“A technical problem like this could happen on any plane and Air Asia’s cheaper flights are not to blame,” she added.
“People should not be criticising Air Asia for missing anything – technical problems happen all the time, even on more expensive flights.”
She said criticisms against the captain for telling passengers to pray and attempts to get him fired were “disgusting”.
“He was professional. He was human. He was a reassuring voice during this event and gave us hope,” she said.
“He is the reason I am still alive and I cannot thank him enough.”
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has begun investigating the incident and said today that a report will be released within several months.
It added that as a result of an in flight engine fault, the aircraft was subjected to moderate airframe vibration and that the flight crew “elected to return to Perth”. -FMT
