3 Frogs Door-mat

Media Statement by Ngeh Koo Ham in Ipoh on Friday, 4th December 2009:

DAP Perak takes full responsibility for the 3 frogs door-mat incident at the DAP Perak Annual Convention. DAP leaders who were invited to the convention should not be blamed, UMNO and BN leaders who criticized Lim Kit Siang over the incident has no sense of justice and are hypocrites for failing to criticize their own members who have acted in more terrible manner

DAP Perak takes full responsibility for the 3 frogs (3 Pakatan Rakyat elected representatives who defected) door-mat incident at the DAP Perak Annual Convention and we have apologised to all Malaysians who felt offended by the incident.

DAP leaders including YB Lim Kit Siang, the Chief Minister Penang, YAB Lim Guan Eng and the leaders PKR and PAS who were also invited to the convention are not to be blamed. As the door mat was placed across the entrance to the convention hall, all persons entering the hall will have to step on the door mat.

UMNO leaders have singled out YB Lim Kit Siang for attack. This is totally unjustified and it clearly show their lack of the sense of justice.
The door-mat was not placed by YB Lim Kit Siang and all persons entering the convention hall would have also stepped on the door-mat.

UMNO leaders who criticized the incident are hypocrites as they failed to show the same displeasure when BN/UMNO members did similarly or worse in the following incidences:-

(i) UMNO members stepping on the portrait of Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon last year.

(ii) BN members burning the portrait of the Chief Minister of Penang, YAB Lim Guan Eng, recently.

(iii) Perak BN Youth tearing the portraits of YB Lim Kit Siang, my portrait and other PR Leaders.

(iv) The storming of APCET II (Asia Pacific Conference on East Timor) meeting by UMNO Youth.

(v) UMNO Youth Chief, Khairy Bin Jamaluddin behaving in an unruly manner during the visit of the Secretary of State of the United States of America, Condoleeza Rice, to Malaysia.

Speech by Dato' Ngeh Koo Ham at the DAP Perak State's Convention

Speech by Sdr Ngeh Koo Ham at the DAP Perak State Convention on 29th November, 2009 held at Tower Regency Hotel, Ipoh.

“The Auditor General has confirmed that the Pakatan Rakyat State Government of Perak has caused improvement to each and every department and agency of the Perak State during its 11 month’s rule. The PR Government has succeeded in making historic achievements during this short period. It is without a doubt that PR is the hope of the people and it has brought the changes the people had voted for on 8/3/2008”

1. The Betrayal
The last one year see tumultuous times in Perak with the unlawful and undemocratic grabbing of power by BN on 7/2/2009.We saw one of us, Mdm Hee Yit Fong prostituted herself to BN and two others Mohd Osman Bin Mohd Jailu and Jamaluddin Bin Mohd Radzi from PKR who sold themselves to BN which caused the downfall of PR Government in Perak. They will be scorned upon for posterity. In the very near future when they are us longer useful to BN, BN will treat them worst than lepers of the past and dogs with sores to be avoided for that is the contempt BN has for them. That time is very near and let all comrades be reminded that history has never been kind to those who sold their souls for benefit. To prove my point I challenged Hee, Osman & Jamaluddin to ask BN now to promise them that they will be made candidates for their respective constituencies in the next election and see the BN’s replies to them. However, in order that history will not be too harsh to them, I urge them to repent and declare that they no longer side BN and support giving back the power to the people by calling for by-elections at their respective constituencies or support the dissolution of the Perak State Assembly. T

2.The effect of the illegal & undemocratic grab of power What concern us more, is the effect of this political crisis on our beloved state of Perak and the nation of Malaysia.We see the police who are enforcers of the law have been reduced to taking instructions from the BN government.

The Judiciary which is the baston of the constitution and the rule of law has on many occasions in the words of the retired Court of Appeal Judge, Dato’ N. H. Chan decided against the plain provisions of the law. The Sultan of Perak has refused to dissolved the state Assembly at the request of Menteri Besar, YAB Dato Seri Nizar Bin Jamaluddin against his very stand as stated in his book “Constitutional Monarchy, Rule of Law and Good Governance” where His Royal Highness said:“Under normal circumstance, it is taken for granted that the Yang di Pertuan Agong (the sultan) would not withhold his consent to request for dissolution of Parliament (State Assembly). His role under such a situation is purely formal”

The police invaded the Perak State Assembly and forcibly evicted the speaker, V. Sivakumar on 7th May, 2009 and help BN installed a bogus speaker who was elected by BN elected representatives even before the Assembly Session was opened by His Royal Highness the Regent of Perak.All these spell disaster for the Perak state and nation of Malaysia. It is imperative on all of us, who love Malaysia to save Malaysia by restoring the constitution to its rightful place and to uphold rule of law.The way forward is to take Putrajaya and there is no two ways about it as reform to the police and the judiciary can only be done by taking federal power. Let us pledge to day to save our nation by working towards Putrajaya.

3. How have we performed ?

Do the people have faith in us? Our 11 months of ruling Perak has crushed to pieces the propaganda perpetuated by BN in the last 50 years that the opposition parties are unable to rule. We have proven them wrong and have outperformed BN in every aspect.

The Auditor General has confirmed that the Pakatan Rakyat State Government of Perak has caused improvement to each and every department and agency of the Perak State during its 11 month’s rule. The PR Government has succeeded in making historic achievements during this short period. It is without a doubt that PR is the hope of the people and it has brought the changes the people had voted for on 8/3/2008 In 2008 the Auditor General audited 7 state departments and 6 state agencies in Perak and found all these state departments and agencies have improved under the PR government. The financial management of the State financial office was accredited with a four star Excellence status of 90.33 marks which was unprecedented. We see mark improvement on the State Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) and the Majilis Agama Islam and Adat Melayu Negeri Perak. The SEDC under BN could not come out with audited accounts for 10 years (1997 to 2006). These were all finally finalised and audited under the PR short rule. Even the 2007 accounts were prepared up to date and audited. Imagine the impact on our state if we are given more time to govern. Imagine the impact we can make if we control the Federal Budget of about RM200 billion yearly which is about 300 times more than the Perak State budget of about RM700 million. We have increased State Revenue by more than RM 100 million from RM538,761,178 in 2007 to RM639,425,143 in 2008 despite not having increased any tax whatsoever on the rakyat and despite we having reduced all land conversion premium and quit rent for not profit organizations to RM 1,000 and RM 40-00 respectively. We increased revenue through hard work, open tender system and zero tolerance for corruption.Our other policies like granting freehold titles for planned and new villages, approving lands for schools and places of worship, supporting Chinese Private Schools and private religious schools by granting them 1000 hectares of land each have endeared us to the rakyat. In the pipeline were programmes to ensure home ownership for all especially the Indians who were displaced from the estates by giving them housing lots, selling homes to them at discounted prices. The welfare policies of helping the poor, the needy and the downtrodden have also been well received.

4. To persevere and serve faithful

I call on all PR elected representatives to continue to serve faithfully and not be discouraged.Though we have lost confidence in the judiciary due to the flip-flop decisions of the courts, we however, still trust that good will triumph over evil. If V.Sivakumar succeeds in his case against the Election Commission and the 3 frogs, we will see by elections in Jelapang, Changkat Jering and Behrang. If Dato Seri Nizar bin Jamaluddin succeeds in his case against Dato Zambry bin Abdul Kadir we will see state wide elections to be called.The PR leadership will continue to do what we can especially through legal court cases while members must continue to influence public opinion, to get the people to persevere and to stay with us. I believe so long as the people are with us. Putrajaya will be a dream that is achievable.

Dissolve the Perak State Assembly

Press Statement by Lim Guan Eng in Georgetown on Thursday, 29th October 2009:
Dissolve the Perak State Assembly for a clear mandate from the people
DAP condemns BN’s shameless and dictatorial take over of the Perak State Assembly yesterday which resulted in violent acts against the rightful Perak State Assembly Speaker Sivakumar and PR ADUNs.
The Barisan Nasional illegally appointed Speaker, Datuk R. Ganesan had banned the use of visual recording devices, mobile phones and laptops in the House. This is totally in contrast of what is practised at Parliament where the parliamentarians can now access the Internet via the computers provided by the Dewan. We condemn these double standards as it was reported that Datuk Mohd Khusairi Abdul Talib (Slim-BN) was seen typing at his laptop throughout the proceedings.
All the Pakatan politicians were subjected to undergo metal detection screening and frisking. This is a clear infringement and a threat to the democratic rights of our elected representatives of the people. Pantai Remis assemblyman Nga Kor Ming received the wrath of the police when he resisted the attempts to a bodily search. During the body search, a police officer had grabbed his private parts. The rightful Perak Speaker, Sivakumar was roughed up while the police were tearing off his robe.
To allow the police to conduct proceedings in the Perak State Assembly proves that there is no more democratically elected government in Perak but that it is a police state.
The Perak Budget 2010 speech was delivered by Datuk Zambry in less than 20 minutes. Very little details very given to the sketchy budget and yet, it was tabled and passed with the support of the BN and Independent State Assemblymen.
DAP reiterates its call of an immediate dissolution of the Perak State Assembly and hold fresh elections in Perak to allow the rakyat the right to choose their own government. Only by returning power to the people, then can justice, freedom, truth and democracy be restored in Perak.

Media statement by Dato' Ngeh

Media Statement by Senior Exco Pakatan Rakyat Perak State Government, MP for Beruas YB Dato’ Ngeh Koo Ham at Parliament, on Monday, 19th October 2009:

Najib and Zambry should heed their own advice and follow the law. They have no moral standing to advise others to act correct politically, morally and legally until they themselves do so and dissolve the Perak State Assembly

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has advised MCA leadership not only be legally correct but also morally and politically acceptable when finding a solution to the MCA crisis. He together with Dato’ Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir, the court appointed Menteri Besar of Perak have warned Pakatan Rakyat to obey the law in this coming 28 October 2009 sitting of the Perak State Assembly.

Shame on them! Both Najib and Zambry were the ones who have acted immorally, illegally and their actions were not politically acceptable when they toppled the Pakatan Rakyat Government of Perak in February this year. They denied the people their rights to choose their government and courted the assemblymen who they themselves accused of being corrupt to support them just to gain power in Perak. They did not follow the law and went against the very democratic principles upon which the foundation of this nation is laid.

Perak BN continue to ignore the law by claiming that Dato’ Ganesan is the lawful speaker. He was never elected as one on 7 May 2009 as there was chaos in the Perak State Assembly and Assembly sitting has not begun when he was purported by elected at around 10.30 am. If BN follows the law, they must accept the fact that when the lawful speaker, V. Sivakumar was chairing the Assembly no one else can have the authority to chair another sub-Assembly within the State Assembly. The sitting had not begun until the Regent of Perak delivered his opening speech at 3.06 pm on 7 May 2009. The sitting on 7 May 2009 itself was not valid as the lawful speaker, V. Sivakumar was forcibly evicted and imprisoned in a room by the police just prior to the opening speech of the Regent of Perak.

Dato’ Ganesan has failed to take and sign the oath of office before the State Assembly on 7 May 2009 as required by Article 36A(1A) of the Perak Constitution.

Event if Dato’ Ganesan was lawfully elected on 7 May 2009 (which is denied), Article 36A(5) of the Perak State Constitution has disqualified him as Dato’ Ganesan has failed to resign from this legal profession within the prescribed 3 months’ period.

BN has also instructed the police to breach the law by arresting more than a hundred people who did not commit any offence in the Perak crisis. The fact that none of them have been charged only goes to show that it was the police who committed wrongful arrests against them. The BN Government has also refused to disclose the names of the police officers who invaded the Perak State Assembly and forcibly evicted the lawful, V. Sivakumar when the question as asked in Parliament. Why is BN Government protecting these wrong doers? The police has told me that they were only carrying out the instructions of their BN political masters.
As BN has failed to follows the law, lawlessness will continue in Perak.

The situation in Perak rightly justify the dissolution of the Perak State Assembly as there is a stalemate as to who rightfully should lead the Perak State Government and the Perak State Assembly. The democratic convention demands that the assembly be dissolved in such circumstances.

I call on Datuk Seri Najib and Dato’ Seri Zambry to follow the law and agree to a dissolution of the Perak State Assembly as the people of Perak has suffered enough. ‘People first’ slogan of BN remains a slogan until the Perak State Assembly is dissolved to pave way for a fresh election.

Merdeka Celebration for Perakian?

Media Statement by Ngeh Koo Ham in Ipoh on Tuesday, 1st September 2009:

The people of Perak did not celebrate Malaysia Independence day yesterday (31st August 2009) because they have been colonized again. We must regain our independence and the first step is to boycott the BN colonist.

In Perak though a State within the Federation of Malaysia, there was hardly any celebration of Malaysia Independence Day yesterday (31st August) and the days preceding it. This is understandable as the people of Perak had been colonized again i.e the imposition of the will of a group of people over the will of the general populace. This domination was enforced by force literally through the barrel of the gun. The BN party and the its leaders who have been rejected by the people of Perak used the police to enforce their dominance.

On 3 March 2009, we saw the police preventing Perak State elected representative from entering the State Assembly to attend a meeting convened by the lawful Speaker, YB V. Sivakumar.

On 7 May 2009, we saw the police invading the State Assembly and forcibly removing the lawful Speaker and imprisoning him in a room.

On many other occasions we have also seen police preventing the lawful Speaker and his Privileges Committee members from operating or using the State Assembly facilities.

Police have also been used to arrest hundreds of people who protested against BN for trampling upon the democratic rights of the people of Perak. Many were arrested for wearing black shirts, holding candle light vigils, drinking black coffee and holding protest fasts.

BN the colonial master of Perak is running Perak like a police state.

The BN colonial master tried to create a semblance of Independence Day celebration by putting up flags at government buildings but people of Perak were in fact mourning the death of democracy in Perak.

According to surveys conducted by NTV 7, Merdeka Centre and others, about 90% of the people of Perak (supporters from both BN and PR) wants the State Legislative Assembly dissolved to pave way for a fresh election to resolve the present constitutional crisis. The will of the people must be respected.

I challenged the Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, as Chairman of BN and Dato’ Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir as BN chief in Perak to dissolve the Perak State Legislative Assembly if they truly subscribe to democratic principles. Otherwise, the people of Perak must continue to strive against this colonial Master until democracy is restored. The 1st step is to boycott the Perak BN State Government by not inviting Dato’ Seri Zambry and his exco members to any of our functions.

Where is the 14,000 Hectares of land?

Media Statement by Ngeh Koo Ham in Sitiawan on Friday, 28th August 2009:

Zambry must clarify the position of the 14,000 hec of land approved to Rahman Hydraulic Tin Bhd as announced by Dato’ Hamidah Osman, his Senior Exco in April this year

On 7/8/2009, Dato’ Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir accused me (Ngeh Koo Ham), YB Nga Kor Ming (MP for Taiping and PR Perak State Government Exco member) and YAB Datuk Seri Mohd Nizar Bin Jamaluddin (PR Perak Menteri Besar ) of spreading lies and accusing the BN State Government of approving 14,000 hec of land to Rahman Hydraulic Tin Bhd for Tin prospecting. The same was in fact announced by Dato’ Hamidah Osman, Zambry’s State Government Senior Exco member in April this year to be media. Zambry should clarify whether he is lying or Hamidah Osman is lying and both of them have a duty to the public to clarify the actual situation with regard to the approval of the said 14,000 hec of land.

Since my media statement on 12/8/2009 on this issue, Dato’ Seri Zambry has been exceptionally quiet on this matter. We at Pakatan Rakyat and the people of Perak demand from him transparency and he should clear the air on this issue immediately or we can presume that another scandal is brewing and will cause huge damage to the State of Perak and her people unless it is stopped now.

BN, Be Truthful and honest

Media Statement by Ngeh Koo Ham in Ipoh on Wednesday, 26th August 2009:

The Malaysian Bar Council Press Release confirms that Dato’ R. Ganesan was dishonest with regard to the time he ceased practice as a lawyer. Dato’ R. ganesan wrote to Bar Council only after V. Sivakumar’s lawyer notified him that even if he had been duly elected as Speaker (which he was not) he would also have been disqualified
The Malaysian Bar Council Press Release confirms that Dato’ R. Ganesan has been dishonest when he said he ceased legal practice on 6/8/2009. It was obvious that he had fraudulently back dated his letter to the Bar Council.

The Bar Council had issued a letter to V. Sivakumar’s lawyer, Mr Chan Kok Keong informing him that Dato’ R. Ganesan was still in active practice as on 11/8/2009.

On 12/8/2009, Mr Chan Kok Keong served an affidavit containing the said confirmation on Dato’ R. Ganesan’s solicitors.

The Bar Council confirm that it was only on 13/8/2009, that they received a fax from Dato’ R. Ganesan a letter dated 6/8/2009 informing them that he has ceased practice as from 6/8/2009. It was obvious that Dato’ R. Ganesan had back dated his letter.
Only on 17/8/2009 that the Bar Council acknowledged receipt of Dato’ Ganesan’s back dated letter dated 6/8/2009 and his Notice of Cessation and Statutory Declaration dated 17/8/2009.

The spirit of Article XXX VIA (5) of the Perak Constitution is that the Speaker must cease his existing business or profession immediately and in any case not more than 3 months after his appointment as Speaker failing which he shall be disqualified.
While we never at any time recognize Dato’ R. Ganesan as lawfully elected, even if going by BN’s contention that he was lawfully elected (which he was not) he was disqualified as from 7/8/2009. Dato’ R. Ganesan cannot revive his Speaker post after disqualification by back dating his letter.

What is most disappointing is that we see dishonesty everywhere in BN. From Permatang Pasir candidate, Rohaizat Othman to the court appointed Perak Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Zambry Bin Abdul Kadir and now to Dato’ R. Ganesan, they have been less than honest in their dealings and actions.

Zambry is telling lies again

Media Statement by Ngeh Koo Ham in Ipoh on Friday, 25th August 2009:

Zambry is telling lies again. Perak Pakatan Rakyat Leaders never at any point of time explicitly or implicitly recognize Dato’ R. Ganesan as the Speaker of Perak Legislative Assembly. Zambry’s approval rating is the worst among all Menteri Besars/Chief Ministers. Challenge Dato’ R. Ganesan to swear on oath as to when he actually wrote to the Bar Council to cease his legal practice

Either Dato’ Seri Zambry Bin Abdul Kadir does not understand English or he is a prolific liar. Referring to the joint media statement by the Perak Pakatan Rakyat Leaders (a copy of which is attached) issued on 21/8/2009, Zambry said that PR leaders have acknowledged Dato R. Ganesan as Speaker. I would like to emphasise that every single paragraph in the said media statement refutes the claim by Dato’ R. Ganesan and BN that he is the lawful Speaker.

The first sentence started off with ‘We all know that Dato’ R. Ganesan was never properly elected as the Speaker ………….’. The second paragraph asks ‘How can a proceeding or a decision made prior to the commencement of a meeting the valid?’
The disclosure by the lawyer of Speaker YB V. Sivakumar concerning the confirmation from the Malaysian Bar that Dato’ R. Ganesan was still actively practising as a lawyer at on 11/8/2009 (more than 3 months after his purported election as Speaker by BN representatives) was to emphasise that even Dato’ R. Ganesan does not believe that he was legally elected and had refused to surrender his practising certificate. Also, had he been legally elected (as alleged by BN)(which he was not) he would have been disqualified.

I sincerely believe that only after Dato’ R. Ganesan was served the YB V. Sivakumar’s affidavit stating that even if Dato’ R. Ganesan was rightfully elected (which he was not) he would have been disqualified under Article XXX V1A(5) of the Perak Constitution, that he wrote to the Bar Council to inform them of his intention to cease his legal practice.

I challenged Dato’ R. Ganesan to swear on oath the actual date he sent his letter to the Bar Council otherwise we can believe that he has back dated his letter to the Bar Council.

Recent survey shows that the approval rating for Zambry is only 36%, the worst among all Menteri Besars and Chief Ministers. The MB/CM with highest rating is Tok Guru Nik Aziz of Kelantan followed by Lim Guan Eng the Chief Minister of Penang.
I believe the 36% who approved of Zambry are the hardcore UMNO members while the balance 64% Perakians reject him.

I call on Zambry to quit as the MB of Perak as he is not the people’s choice by calling a fresh election for Perak. At least in this way he can contribute to Perak by starting a precedent in Malaysia which has been well established in other democracies that we gracefully leave office when the people reject us.

Ganesan is not the legitimate Perak DUN speaker

Joint Media Statement by Perak Pakatan Rakyat leaders in Ipoh on Friday, 21st August 2009:

Dato’ R. Ganesan is not the Legitimate Speaker of the Perak State Legislative Assembly. Even if he had been legitimately elected, he is now disqualified by virtue of the Perak State Constitution as Dato’ R. Ganesan continues in his profession as an Advocate & Solicitor

We all know that Dato’ R. Ganesan was never properly elected as the Speaker of the Perak State Legislative Assembly at the sitting on 7/5/2009 where the lawful and legitimate Speaker YB V. Sivakumar was illegally and forcibly removed from the State Assembly.

The purported election of Dato’ R. Ganesan by the BN elected representatives holding a sub-assembly within the Assembly was carried out before the opening of the session of the Legislative Assembly i.e before the opening speech of his Royal Highness the Regent of Perak. How can a proceeding or a decision made prior to the commencement of a meeting be valid? Moreover, at the material time the legitimate speaker YB V. Sivakumar was still holding the chair of the Speaker at the State Assembly sitting.
We have been informed by Mr Chan Kok Keong, the lawyer for Speaker YB V. Sivakumar that he has received a letter from the Malaysian Bar dated 12.8.2009 confirming that Dato’ R. Ganesan is still actively practising as a lawyer holding a valid Practising Certificate under the Legal Profession Act 1976. A copy of the letter is annexed hereto.

Even assuming that Dato’ R. Ganesan was rightfully elected (which he was not) on 7/5/2009, his failure to cease practice as a lawyer would have disqualified him in any event by virtue of Article XXX VIA (5) of the Laws of the Constitution of Perak which provides as follows:-

(5) A member who is elected to be the Speaker shall be disqualified from holding such office if after three months of his election to such office or at any time thereafter he is or becomes a member of any board of directors or board of management, or an officer or employee, or engages in the affairs or business, of any organization or body, whether corporate or otherwise, or of any commercial, industrial or other undertaking, whether or not he receives any remuneration, reward, profit or benefit from it:

Provided that such disqualification shall not apply where such organization or body carries out any welfare or voluntary work or objective beneficial to the community or any part thereof, or any other work or objective of a charitable or social nature, and the member does not receive any remuneration, reward, profit or benefit from it.

It has been more that 3 months since the purported election of Dato’ R. Ganesan as the Speaker of the Perak State Legislative Assembly and by continuing in his legal profession, he is now disqualified as its Speaker even if we accept BN’s assertion that he was properly elected.

Therefore, we hope that BN will respect the rule of law and recognize that the only legitimate Speaker for the Perak State Legislative Assembly is YB V. Sivakumar.

Boycott Zambry

Media Statement by Ngeh Koo Ham in Ipoh on Thursday, 20th August 2009:

Perak State is in a stand still mode and the people suffer as a result. Call on the people to boycott Zambry and his exco for refusing to bow to the wishes of the people that the Perak State Legislative Assembly be dissolved and a fresh election called to resolve the present predicament.

More than 6 months have elapsed since the immoral and unprincipled grab of power in Perak by Dato’ Seri Zambry Bin Abdul Kadir and his Exco members. The people of Perak is suffering as no serious investor would want to have a look at Perak due to the uncertainties created by Dato’ Seri Zambry and his BN power grabbers. Recent announcements that some investors are interested to invest in Perak are only eyewash to mislead the people. None of the projects is moving and investors remain at the interested to invest stage.The position of the Menteri Besar is still in doubt waiting for the final arbiter, the Federal Court to make a decision. Entangled together with the question as to who the legitimate Menteri Besar is, is the uncertainty of the local councilors and the village heads appointed by BN to replace the councilors and village heads appointed or elected under the Pakatan Rakyat Government. We hardly see anything moves in Perak as a result. BN is solely responsible for this state of affairs.

During the 10 months’ reign of Perak by Pakatan Rakyat under the able leadership of Dato Seri Nizar Bin Jamaluddin, people see positive changes sweeping through Perak which benefited them. During the short 10 months, scores of positive changes were made which benefited the people.

The people must end this present predicament and the way forward is to dissolve the State Legislative Assembly and allow a fresh election to be held. 90% of those surveyed (which includes both BN and PR supporters) wanted the State Legislative Assembly dissolved. We cannot allow Dato’ Seri Zambry Bin Abd Kadir to go against the wishes of the people. I call on the people to boycott Zambry and his exco members. All organizations and associations must stop inviting them to their functions to send a clear and strong message that we will not accept Zambry’s refusal to dissolve the State Legislative Assembly. Zambry from UMNO with his racist’s mind has said that I have called on the Chinese Associations not to invite him to their functions which is a lie. He tries again to play the racial card which is in vogue with UMNO leaders. My call is to all organizations and associations and to people of all races and religions to boycott him and his Exco members. The desire to see the Perak State Legislative Assembly dissolved to pave the way for a fresh election comes from people of all races and religions as the people is demanding back their democratic rights to chose their leaders to lead the state of Perak.

MACC vs MACC

"The shit has hit the fan"

The letter supposedly given to lawyer Gobind Singh Deo concerning Teoh Beng Hock's interrogations by the MACC was handed over to the Commission of inquiry yesterday revealed by RPK on his blog, Malaysia Today. There are good souls with consciences and are upright in the MACC who cannot tolerate injustice and corruption within MACC itself, the so called ANTI-CORRUPTION AGENCY (B*llsh***..........) They investigate only PR politicians!!!!!

The onus is on the UMNO/BN government now to investigate without fear or favour as Hishamuddin said. There should not be any cover up. The truth will definitely be revealed.

Those heartless people who said that TBH had ommitted suicide need to apologize to his family members now that the truth has started to surface. Dr. Gigi's days are numbered!

The Malays are Cowards - Says Utusan Malaysia

According to the Malaysian Insider today, Journalist Noor Azam of Utusan Malaysia opined in today's paper that the Malays are cowards - they dare not stand up against the Chinese and the Indians.

While our Prime Minister is trying to unite us (sincerely?) and promote 1Malaysia this journalist is trying to divide us, play with fire and cause disharmony. We in the Pakatan Rakyat are doing all we can and have achieved good results in uniting all the races but there are certain quarters trying to destroy the peace we have enjoyed thus far.

This is a threat to our national security but will the Home Ministry invoke ISA on the journalist? I call on all peace-loving Malaysians and Pakatan Rakyat members together with all their supporters to boycott Utusan Malaysia

Deepest Condolences to the Family and Friends of Comrade Teoh Beng Hock

We want to convey our deepest condolences to the family of Teoh Beng Hock on the tragic death of our comrade. We are saddened by the shocking news of his death and we want a thorough investigation into this. The MACC should be held responsible since his death occurred while he was under custody.

Is this a case of intimidation to scare people who serve with the Pakatan Rakyat government? We should embark on a nationwide campaign to demand a truthful explaination from the BN government. We want fair treatment in all matters by all agencies.

We have lost confidence in the Police, the judiciary and now the MACC.

Another win for Pakatan Rakyat

Pas candidate En Mohd Fauzi Abdullah won the Manek Urai state seat by-election by a majority of 65 votes, down from 1652 in the March 8th 2008 general election.

Soalan Dato' Ngeh Koo Ham di Dewan Rakyat

POLIS MASUK DEWAN UNDANGAN NEGERI PERAK

Soalan:
Dato' Ngeh Koo Ham (Beruas) minta Menteri Dalam Negeri menyatakan semua nama-nama anggota polis yang masuk ke dalam Dewan Undangan Negeri Perak pada 7/5/2009 dan nama-nama mereka yang mengheret dan membawa keluar secara paksa Speaker V. Sivakumar daripada Dewan Undangan Negeri Perak pada hari tersebut.

Jawapan:
Saya mengucapkan terima kasih kepada Ahli Yang Berhormat Beruas yang mengemukakan pertanyaan.

Untuk maklumam Ahli Yang Berhormat, tindakan pihak polis untuk masuk ke dalam Dewan Undangan Negeri Perak sewaktu persidangan Dun yang ke 12 berlangsung adalah dibuat atas permintaan Speaker Dewan dan berlandaskan kepada undang-undang. Tindakan tersebut sama sekali tidak digerakkan oleh mana-mana individu dan tidak bersifat mala fide. Justeru itu, tidak wujud sebarang keperluan bagi kerajaan untuk mendedahkan nama-nama anggota polis yang bertugas ketika insiden DUN Perak sepertimana yang diminta oleh Ahli Yang Berhormat.

UMNO Allowed but Not Pakatan Rakyat

Police report against the Police.

The Pakatan Rakyat Secretariat led by the Secretary, En. Mohd Yusri bin Yaacob lodged a police report yesterday against the police for not taking any action against Umno Youth (Lumut Division) for showing video clips of the ROWDY Perak State legislative assembly meeting on the 7th of May 2009. They showed the edited version in which UMNO ADUNs were portrayed as well-behaved. The video clips were shown in the Majlis Perbandaran Manjung hall on Friday the 19th of May 2009. (Note the venue chosen; government buildings are being used for partisan puposes. Is this allowed?) In contrast, the police raided the DAP Sitiawan dinner on the 9th of May 2009 when we started to play the same video clips at the SMJK Nan Hwa hall, disrupting a hitherto orderly dinner.

7 MPs suspended for 2 days

7 Members of Parliament were suspended for wearing headbands in Parliament today.

Those susupended include Dato' Seri Nizar, Dato' Ngeh Koo Ham, YB Nga Kor Ming and YB M. Kulasegeran.

RM200,000 for the Indian NGOs?

The Malaysian Insider reported that Dr Zambry blamed the opposition for picking on BN’s weaknesses instead of its strengths. I believe that the Pakatan Rakyat government could have done much more if not for the unethical and unlawful power grab by the BN in Perak as compared to BN (in 50 years) as one can see for the last few months when PR was in power. PR is well accepted by the people not only in Perak but throughout Malaysia. PR obtained 56% of the votes in Perak during the general election in 2008. They garnered stronger support in the Permatang Pauh, Kuala Terengganu and Bukit Gantang by-elections. PR may not have solved all the problems faced by the people but what the PR government could do was acceptable and people are well pleased.

Dr Zambry also announced an allocation of RM200,000.00 for all the 157 Indian’s NGOs in Perak at the Perak Indian NGOs Consultative Convention in Sungai Siput today. Every NGO will get RM1,273.88 –One thousand two hundred seventy three Ringgit Malaysia and eighty eight cents. These are only crumbs under the table. What is there to shout about?

RM9 Billion investment in Manjung Perak!

Media Statement by Ngeh Koo Ham in Ipoh on Thursday, 11th June 2009:

Is the announcement by Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir of the RM9.0 billion investment by a South American Multinational Corporation another publicity stunt of the BN State Government?

Dato’ Seri Zambry Bin Abdul Kadir has announced yesterday that a South American Multinational Corporation will be investing RM9.0 billion in Manjung for an iron ore/pellet distribution centre for Asia. He added that it is in the final stages of discussion and an agreement is expected to be signed next week.

I have been given to understand that the company is the Brazilian company, Compania Vale Del Rio.

It must be put on record that the said company was in negotiating with the Pakatan Rakyat Perak State Government before the latter was immorally, illegally and unconstitutionally overthrown by the BN.

I hope the BN State Government will not be continuing its policy of announcing many multi million/billion ringgit projects to paint a good picture of the government but none finally materialized as has happened under Dato’ Seri Tajol Rosli.

The Perak Pakatan Rakyat Government has a policy to announce the implementation of projects only if it has been finalized and ready to take off as we hold firmly to our principle that the people must not be misled. Many have lost money investing in lands surrounding projects announced by BN which did not materialize.

Dato’ Seri Zambry Bin Abdul Kadir must confirm that the following are already in place if not the announcement is just another publicity stunt.

1. The Perak State Government has thought through thoroughly the decision to convert the area presently designated for tourism to industrial use.

2. The state government has gazetted the area for industrial use.

3. The Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) report is ready and the report supports the said project.

4. Is the 1,300 acres of land private or state land? If it is private land has Compania Vale Del Rio concluded the purchase of the land with the owner? If it is state land, has Compania Vale Del Rio applied for the land and it has been approved by all the relevant departments and the state government?

MCA President's blog poll

What say you Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat?

75% of the respondents in the poll on the MCA Presidential's blog said that MCA should leave BN. Is this academic only as the PM said? With only fifteen MCA seats in Parliament and given the fact that 80% of the Chinese voters in Bukit Gantang voted for Pakatan Rakyat...is MCA not listening to the sentiments of the people?

Is MCA going to join Gerakan and MIC in being rendered irrelevant and insignificant one day? Very soon!

People are having more and more confidence in the Pakatan Rakyat now!

Launch of signature campaign to dissolve Perak state assembly

Daulat Tuanku! Bubarkan DUN.

YB Nga Kor Ming launched a signature campaign in Sitiawan this morning to petition HRH the Sultan of Perak to dissolve the state assembly.


The campaign was kicked off in Ipoh on the 27th of May 2009. To date almost 200,000 signatures have been collected.



YB Nga and supporters in Sitiawan at the launch

in front of YB Dato' Ngeh Koo Ham's service centre.



In his press conference, YB Nga reiterated the DUN must be dissolved to solve the long-standing crisis in Perak. The people must be given the right to choose the government; the government must be decided through the democratic process and not through a power grab or by the courts.

He also challenged the 3 'BN-friendly' state assemblymen to either deny or admit the allegations made by Raja Petra Kamaruddin and Dr Lee Boon Chye that they received millions of ringgit to be 'friendly' to the BN. They should not remain silent. Let the people know the truth. They should clear their names.

If the allegations are true why did BN pay YB Hee RM25 million and the other two RM3 million each? WHY? Discrimination? Does it have anything to do with the impending coruption cases in the courts?

Today in History - Perak Crisis 3 Feb 2009

Today marks exactly four months since the POWER GRAB in Perak.

Feb 3: The good and efficient Perak Pakatan Rakyat government falls after Behrang assemblyman Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi and Changkat Jering assemblyman Mohd Osman quit Pakatan Keadilan Rakyat. They became 'Barisan Nasional friendly' even though in August 2008 many BN leaders had condemned them for being corrupted.

Feb 4: Jelapang assemblywoman Hee Yit Foong who claimed to be a faithful DAP member for 20 over years quit the DAP. She was at the press conference held by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib declaring the fall of the PR government.

Feb 6: Datuk Seri Dr Zambry was sworn in by the Sultan as the Perak Mentri Besar

Feb 13: Dato’ Seri Nizar filed a lawsuit to challenge the legitimacy of Zambry's 'appointment'

Feb 18: Perak state Legislative Assembly Speaker V. Sivakumar suspended Zambry for 18 months following recommendations by the assembly’s Committee of Priviledge. He also suspended the six BN 'state excos'.

Mar 3: Speaker V. Sivakumar convened the state assembly under the ‘Democracy Tree' after the policemen and ‘thugs’ prevented Pakatan Rakyat assemblymen from going into the state assembly to hold their meeting.

Mar 10: Speaker V. Sivakumar filed a lawsuit at the KL High Court against the 3 BN friendly assemblymen and the Election Commission.

Apr 16: The Federal Court ruled that V. Sivakumar does not have the power to suspend Dr Zambry and his exco members. Speaker without power?

Apr 20: Dato’ Seri Nizar filed an affidavit at the KL High Court stating that he had sought the consent of Sultan to dissolve the state assembly because of the deadlock in Perak.

May 7: Speaker V. Sivakumar was dragged from his speaker’s chair and out of the Perak State Assembly by over 60 police officers and ‘thug’ who entered the assembly illegally. Police arrested 69 people including MPs and ADUN in Ipoh.

In Kuala Lumpur, the police arrested 14 people for having a candlelight vigil in support of activist Wong Chin Huat who had been arrested for asking people to wear black. Five lawyers who went to the Brickfields police station to provide legal assistance to the arrested people were also arrested.

May 9: Police raided Sitiawan DAP’s dinner and confiscated the audio and video equipment as we were trying to show state assembly events from the 7th of May 2009. The police also arrested the technician on duty.

May 11: The KL High Court ruled that Dato’ Seri Nizar was the rightful and legitimate Mentri Besar.

May 19 : 12 'Death to Democracy' protesters arrested in Petaling Jaya.

Among those arrested were a MP and several state assemblymen

May 20: Dr Mah Hang Soon announced that BN is to distribute 50,000 DVDs sowing events in the Perak state assembly. Will the police arrest him?

May 21: 16 people including MPs and ADUN were arrested in Petaling Jaya for a candlelight vigil in the hope of seeing the light of democracy in Malaysia.

May 23: Police raided DAP headquarters in Petaling Jaya and took away computers and DVDs. It was the FIRST time in the DAP’s history that the police had ever raided the office. When did the DAP ever becomes a threat to security? Is DAP producing some illegal DVDs? Or pornographic movies?

May 26: Dato’ Seri Nizar launched the 72-hour ‘hunger strike’/‘fasting together’ at Wisma DAP Ipoh. 19 people were arrested by the police. Among those arrested were several ADUNs and an MP.

May 30: YB Lim Kit Siang was quizzed by the police for blaming PM Najib for the Perak crisis.

WHAT IS NEXT IN THE PIPELINES?
ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IN MALAYSIA!

There is no other solution but the dissolution of the Perak State Legislative Assembly

Bullied by the Police?

Bullying! Intimidations! Harassment! Intrusion! (By the 'BN’s' police?)

Today’s launching of the ‘fasting together’ among all the Pakatan Rakyat members of diverse religions at Wisma DAP Ipoh by Y.A.B. MB Dato’ Seri Ir Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin was disrupted and prevented by the police. The purpose of the fasting (and prayer) was to pray for Almighty God, the maker of heaven and earth to intervene and to give wisdom to the leaders to solve the Perak crisis as soon as possible for the good of the nation particularly the state of Perak.

There were a few hundred police personnel surrounding the vicinity of the Wisma DAP. The BN also dragged in the Ipoh City Hall Enforcement personnel to intimidate and harass the supporters at the gathering.

At around 7.30am, the police arrested five workers for assembling a canopy and putting up a giant balloon near Wisma DAP. At around 10.30am, Y.A.B. MB Nizar was prevented from greeting the people and the police personnel on duty.

Since the launch of the fast at Wisma DAP was prohibited by the police, supporters decided to adjourn to the Ipoh High Court nearby to hear the proceedings of the suit by 817 JKKK (Ketua Kampong) in Perak against unjust dismissal by the BN government. Those who started to walk there were arrested by the police.

Among those arrested were Member of Parliament for Ipoh Barat YB M Kulasegeran, DUN Speaker, YB V. Sivakumar, YB Thomas Su, YB Chang Lih Kang, YB Leong Mee Meng, and several supporters. The police also deprived the detainees of their right to legal counsel. Lawyer Mr Augustine Anthony, YB Dato’ Ngeh Koo Ham and YB Sivanesan were not allowed into the police station to meet them.

The questions everyone may ask are these:

1) Why are the police so concerned about a fast when they have much more urgent and important duties? Why are they disrupting Pakatan Rakyat’s peaceful time of fasting which breaks all barriers of races and religious? We are law-abiding citizens. We were not and are not violent. The police should have used their resources to solve problems like snatch thefts, robberies, kidnappings, murders especially the murders of Kugan and the foreign model.

2) What are the steps are the police are taking to solve the Mat Rempit problem which has cost innocent lives?

3) What are the steps taken to rid the police force of its rampant corruption?

4) Why is there a heavy police presence at by-elections as well? Is there any other motive than to intimidate voters and prevent them from coming out to vote? Again this is a waste of resources and the rakhat’s money.

The best and most logical solution to the Perak crisis is to dissolve the Perak State Legislative Assembly. Let the people of Perak choose the Menteri Besar and the government they want rather than leave the matter to the court. Let the Menteri Besar be the people’s Menteri Besar and not the court’s Menteri Besar. Pakatan Rakyat is ready to face fresh elections any time. MB Nizar was gentleman enough to request the Sultan of Perak to dissolve the DUN when he was declared the legitimate Menteri Besar by the High Courts on 11th May 2009 even though 56% of the voters in Perak had voted the Pakatan Rakyat in the general election in 2008. We want the mandate to be returned to the people of Perak. This is a democratic country so let the people decide whom they want to elect - whether a corrupted government or clean and able leaders to manage the state of Perak.

Arise all ye people of faith.

Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu or whatever faith you may profess,
let us join Y.A.B. Dato’ Seri Nizar, Menteri Besar of the people of Perak and Speaker YB V. Sivakumar in fasting and prayer tomorrow that the Power of the Almighty God be manifested and His reign come. You may join them wherever you are. They will be at Wisma DAP Ipoh at 10.00AM on Tuesday 26 May 2009 to begin their prayers.

- The prayer of the upright is pleasing to God.
- Pray for those who persecute us.
- If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land (Perak).

In happy moments, praise God.
In difficult moments, seek God.
(This is what we are doing tomorrow and have been doing for the past 3 months.)
In quiet moments, worship God .
In painful moments, trust God.
Every moment of every day, thank God.

WHAT SAY YOU IGP?

Can someone please explain?


BN can do this but not Pakatan?

According to The Star yesterday, BN is distributing DVDs of the Perak state assembly sitting on the 7th. They will be distributing the edited and 'doctored' version instead of the original and truthful record of events in the state legislative assembly on the 7th of May 2009. BN should be brave enough to show the truth. Is telling the truth wrong in the the eyes of the law? On the 9th of May, DAP wanted to show a clip of actual DUN events in a school hall and this was objected to by the police. Not only that, the police harassed us, threatened to arrest the organizers and when we started to show the clip, policemen and police officers rushed into the hall to confiscate the video equipment. The police also arrested the technician who was operating the PA system when he tried to prevent the police from grabbing the DVD player.

Shame on you!

'Formula 1' Court

Most Malaysians if not all are amazed at how fast the appeals court decided on the stay of execution of the Kuala Lumpur High Courts declaration yesterday. The High Courts declared on 11 May 2009 that Dato’ Seri Ir Mohd Nizar was the legitimate Chief Minister of Perak and asked Datuk Dr Zambry and his executive councilors to vacate their offices to allow Dato’ Seri Nizar and his executive councilors to return to their offices to continue on their works. The decision has once again put the faith and confident of Malaysian in the judiciary system.

While Dato’ Seri Nizar and his executive councilors were busy getting started with their day at theState Secretariat, Dato Dr Zambry and his team filed for a stay of execution with the Appeals Courts today (12 May 2009). Barely less than 4 hours the Appeals Courts allowed the stay of execution on the declarations of the High Courts at around 1 PM the same day.

Such speedy and efficient work by a public servant is commendable and should be imitated by all if it was genuine. I doubt so. Why? Why there are so many cases backlogged? Many of these cases had been dragging on for many years.

Whatever UMNO/BN does now cannot redeem the bad, indeed very bad image they have portrayed thus far. The whole nation, not only the people of Perak, are getting angrier, more disgusted, and more disappointed and will hate UMNO/BN for many ‘generations’.

Tun Dr Mahathir and Tengku Razaleigh who are UMNO members have spoken up. NGOs, various associations and guilds as well as religious groups also desire that the State Legislative Assembly be dissolved. Gerakan Central Executive member, Dr Hsu Dar Ren, also agreed that fresh elections are the best solution.
ttp://www.themalaysianinsider.com/index.php/malaysia/26257-gerakan-leader-backs-fresh-polls-in-perak-http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/index.php/malaysia/26257-gerakan-leader-backs-fresh-polls-in-perak- )

This is the only way to solve the long-standing crisis which is not beneficial to the Barisan National nor to Pakatan Rakyat. Businessmen are facing many uncertainties the investors cannot wait-time is money.

Therefore let us face the democratic process of elections and whoever wins should get down to work immediately to cushion the effects of the global economci slowdown and take immediate steps to overcome the influenza epidemic. Is this not the most noble thing to do? BN - do not be wise in your own eyes!

Dato' Seri Ir. Mohd Nizar B Jamaluddin adalah Menteri Besar Yang Sah

Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur hari ini(11/5/09) memutuskan bahawa Dato' Seri Ir Hj. Mohd Nizar adalah Menteri Besar Perak yang sah. Tahniah diucapkan khasnya kepada Dato' Seri dan amnya kepada Pakatan Rakyat.

Ini adalah satu-satunya keputusan yang adil dan berani oleh hakim mahkamah. Negara kita memang memerlukan hakim-hakim yang bertindak adil dan telus supaya rakyat mempunyai keyakinan terhadap kehakiman negara kita.

Dengan ini semoga DYMM Tuanku Sultan Perak akan bubarkan Dewan Undangan Negeri supaya pilihanraya untuk seluruh Perak boleh diadakan untuk rakyat memilih kerajaan yang dikehendaki dan krisis Perak ini dapat diselesaikan demi kebaikan negeri Perak dan negara kita yang dicintai. Ini merupakan hasrat orang ramai bukan sahaja di Perak bahkan orang-orang dari luar Perak. Ini termasuk persatuan-persatuan, NGO-NGO, kesatuan-kesatuan berbagai ugama
dan pelabur-pelabur tempatan dan luar negara.
Kami menyerahkan perkara ini kepada Tuanku yang pintar, cerdik pantai untuk membuat keputusan yang bijak supaya krisis ini tidak berpanjangan.
Daulat, Tuanku.

DAP Dinner and the Police's Invasion 9 May 2009

The DAP Lumut Liaison Committee organized a 'Bubarkan DUN Perak, Pulangkan Hak Rakyat' dinner on the 9th of May 2009 at SMJK Nan Hwa, Sitiawan. Perak. The dinner went on smoothly and in an orderly fashion until the police moved in to grab the amplifier, the VCD player, two LCD projectors and the LCD screens.


The organizing Chairman, Mr Wong Gay Ming giving a the opening speech and welcoming attendees.



Dato' Ngeh Koo Ham greeting the people of Sitiawan before the dinner started.


The attendees sang Negaraku and the DAP anthem.


Dato' Ngeh gave a powerful, dynamic speech during the dinner.
He recounted the happenings in the State Legislative Assembly sitting on the 7th of May 2009.
He told the people the truth, debunked inaccuracies in the printed and electronic media, and explained what actually took place during the sitting.



YB Ong Boon Piow shared during dinner on the 'Democracy Tree' and the events surrounding it.


YB Jeff Ooi, MP of Jelutong Penang giving his speech.
He congratulated the Perak Pakatan Rakyat government on a job well done, and on many policies and good things they have done for the people of Perak.


Speaker YB S Sivakumar was given a hero's welcome and was carried into the hall by the supporters.


Local and national leaders joined hands with one heart, one strength and one spirit to fight on for the people of Malaysia particularily the people of Perak.


Mr Wong Gay Ming collecting donations from the generous attendees for the administration and expenses of DAP Malaysia. The amount collected was RM4836.00


Sences from the intrusion of the police into the peaceful, orderly dinner.


Dato' Ngeh enquiring about the reason for the heavy police presence in the school compound around the hall where the dinner was being held.


Dato' Ngeh challenged the Manjung OCPD, Tuan Mohd Jamil b. Osman to quote the law that
prevents the people from knowing the truth on what happened in the recent state assembly sitting by viewing the video clip. The OCPD unreasonably just said that it had been a condition for the approval of the permit for the dinner.

The video clips that we tried to show can be viewed at the following websites:








The Scuffle! Lawlessness of the police

The Deputy OCPD Tuan Shaharuddin and his men grabbed the LCD Projectors, LCD screens. DVD player and as seen here were trying to 'rampas' the amplifier as well. YB Dato' Ngeh and YB Nga Kor Ming tried to prevent the Deputy OCPD from taking the amplifier away.


The Deputy OCPD was seen pushing Dato' Ngeh, showing no respect for him as an elected Member of Parliament and a State Legislative Assemblyman. What more the ordinary rakyat on the street?


Dato' Ngeh showed the police permit that we had obtained for the dinner.


WOW! the FRU was invading the hall. They rushed into the hall. This had never happened in the history of DAP-organized functions. DAP supporters are law-abiding people.


More FRU personnel outside of the hall. Did the DAP hold an illegal mafia gathering? Please get your priorities right! (Coincidentally, a snatch thief injured a student near Simpang Ampat Chinese Methodist Church at around 8.05pm He was robbed and slashed. He received more than 40 stitches.) The police should patrol the streets more often and need to do something about the present 'super high crime rate' rather than intimidating law-abiding people at dinner. Where is the wisdom? Please do your job well.
