Digital expert: Lingam tape authentic
Soon Li Tsin | Jan 15, 08 3:55pm
A computer forensic analyst today told the royal commission on the VK Lingam tape scandal that the controversial video clip was authentic and contained no signs of editing.

Mohd Zabri Adil Talib, 28, a senior digital computer forensic analyst with Cybersecurity Malaysia, a government agency under the Science and Technology Ministry, said that there were also no signs of tampering or dubbing of the clip which was revealed by opposition party PKR in September.

Testifying during questioning by deputy public prosecutor Azmi Ariffin, he said he had reached his conclusion after scrutinising the audio and visual aspects of both the eight-minute and 14-minute versions of the video.

“My analysis found the movement of the objects recorded consistent and authentic. If it was tampered or edited, the pixellation would show.

“The audio file that was extracted from the video is also consistent and not edited, therefore it can be concluded that no dubbing had been made,” he told the court.

The issue of authenticity of the Lingam tape video has been a key issue since the scandal was first reported on Sept 19 when PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim released the video clip at a packed press conference.

The government then set up a three-member panel to investigate the matter. This was followed by the present royal commission following a recommendation by the panel.

Zabri also testified that laboratory tests done in Madrid, Spain proved that one random sample labelled ‘Voice Sample 2′ matched the one in the video.

ACA enforcement officer Wan Zulkifli Wan Jusoh had before this told the commission that  ‘Voice Sample 2′ was, in fact, lawyer VK Lingam’s (left).

‘Perplexing’ answer

Following this, commissioner Mahadev Shankar asked Lingam’s lawyer R Thayalan to reveal his client’s stand as to whether he was the man in the video or not.

Thayalan said: “I have not received instructions from my client on this matter. All he has told me is that the man in the video looks like him and sounds like him.”

Amidst laughter from the public gallery, Mahadev said he was ‘perplexed’ by this answer because Lingam’s stand on this matter must be established to expedite the proceedings.

Thayalan could not give an answer and instead told the commissioners to wait for Lingam to be quizzed when called as a witness. The proceedings at the Kuala Lumpur High Court premises resumes tomorrow.

PKR’s Anwar and party vice-president R Sivarasa are expected to testify tomorrow. DPP Azmi also made it known that former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad is also scheduled to be questioned.

Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang, meanwhile, lambasted the royal commission for not summoning Lingam as its first witness.

In a statement today, said that Lingam’s ‘admission of the authenticity of the tape would have saved time, money and resources’.

“If Lingam is prepared to admit up-front the authenticity of the video-clip, then the country can be spared the rigmarole of the completely unnecessary testimony of ACA officers going to Lingam’s house in Kelana Jaya to take photographs of its living room and compare it with the location in the clip,” said Lim.

‘Invoke full powers’

He said there would also be no need for other related testimony such as expert evidence from the private laboratory in Madrid to verify that the voice on the video clip matched that of Lingam’s.

“These evidences to establish the authenticity of the video-clip would only be necessary if Lingam challenges the authenticity issue, in which case, he should be stood down as a witness until the commission has crossed the ‘authenticity’ hurdle with all available verification testimony.”

With the clip’s authenticity confirmed, the royal commission can then quickly move to the serious business of determining whether those mentioned in the tape had committed any wrongdoing and face punishment, pointed out Lim.

“Of course, should Lingam issue a flat denial about the authenticity of the video-clip … and the royal commission reach a subsequent conclusion that the video clip was genuine, the commission should invoke the full punitive and penalty powers available to it to deal with Lingam.”

Lim said that it was not too late for the commission to ‘act smart’ and fast-track the current process of calling witnesses for testimony to establish the authenticity of the clip.

The five-member commission comprises former Chief Judge of Malaya Haidar Mohd Noor (chairperson), former Court of Appeal judge Mahadev, Suhakam commissioner Dr Khoo Khay Kim, former chief judge of Sabah and Sarawak Steve Shim and former solicitor-general Zaitun Zawiyah Puteh.

They are assisted by Prime Minister’s Department legal affairs division director-general Abdullah Sani who acts as secretary for the commission.

A team of minute-takers are also present to assist in compiling the hearings for the commission to come up with their report later.

The commission was set up to ascertain the authenticity of the video clip; identify the persons in the video clip; ascertain the truth or otherwise of the content of the conversation in the video clip, determine whether there is any misconduct and to recommend appropriate action against the person or persons identified in the video clip if there is misconduct.

Our current malay generation is racist now because they desperately want to hang on to privileges which I frankly believe it slowly causing the malay race to rot away and become a pathetic race on crutches dependent.

I think that malays are the most stupid idiots on earth – they might have big sized bodies bud in their heads, but they have puny brains.

Thus coming to the conclusion that they are the most stupid black blocks on earth – they are coloured black and stink like a garbage dump.

Does malays ever think twice about their religious? What if yours believe is not what you think!

You malays will rape anybody just for sexual pleasure. You didn’t read about the malay who raped his own sister?

Not only that! They yell 5 times per day and expect to go to heaven! After committing so many sins like steal, rape, killing!

Malays are so stupid that deserve to be robbed by their own government. They in fact deserve to be raped as well. Maybe we were better off as British rule Malaysia after all.

Malays are jealous of Chinese, that is why they hate them. Americans are not jealous of Chinese, because they don’t need tongkat. They buy a lot of Chinese goods. If they hate, they would have boycott the products. Bodoh!

Oh! Bodoh! Only blind man needs tongkat.

If Americans don’t hate the malays, why is there so much bad press against Mahathir when he scolded the Americans? You malays are brainless and never read the newspaper. Everyday special rights here and there……….still like your tongkat so much!

You go to American Embassy and see which country now is blacklisted? Did they blacklist Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong?

Even the Japanese look down upon the malays because they are just a bunch of fool, corrupt, lazy person who feed on the Chinese income tax for their existence.

The malays want to produce as many pig babies as they want, but doesn’t teach them what is honesty, hardworking, civilisation!

I am totally agree what you have said, those moron malays have no sense of ‘malu’. For example, I find that most of those malay pig creature are dirty and smelly, but they still walking around proudly with that stinking and ugly look.

Another example is most of them are poor, they can’t afford a big luxury car. When they saw Chinese or Indian driving a big car, they are feeling distress and jealous.

What a loser! Hey non-malays can afford a big car without depend on NEP policy. But you pathetic malay pig can’t afford it even though with NEP policy help. Loser malay pig!

F***k Muslims and all malay pig in Malaysia.

I feel ashamed to call myself a Malaysian nowadays because you malay pig are making us losing our pride day by day by corrupting the once dignified image of this country, you know Malaysia is now a laughing stock among the non-Muslim countries in the world!

People despise this country still protecting the lame lot and not doing anything to improve the deteriorating situation, still practising double standards among its own people, still expelling the non-malay genius to other countries, still depriving the rights and benefits of other races to its own race, still criticize and blame the Chinese for their minority poverty.

Hey, what is wrong with you malay pig? Haven’t you fed yourself enough with the loots yet? Still want more? What a worthless thieves bunch!

You malay pig are worse than a maggot. We need a leader not a faggot to rule this country. Get lost you freak!

For all the bad things you stupid melayu babi say about the Chinese, when you are in trouble and big shit, what do you do?

You come crawling back on your knees to the Chinaman to help you, because you can’t trust all your malay pig who are sodomy rapists, incest culprits, drug addicts.

Without the Chinese, you malay pig will still live on trees, swinging from tree to tree like monkeys, or forages on the ground by your 4 legs to eat all the shit.

You malay pig are a truly ungrateful lot – the minute all the Chinese leave Bolehland – you malay pig will collapse into the sea and die – that is your destiny!

I think the problem of malay pig race is their culture – it is in born in their gene – nowhere in the world that you will see affirmative action is focusing on the majority because it is always the minority that need the protection.

Worst, the minority in Malaysia has been systematically marginalized just to suppress them of their growth.

Let the malay pig make Malaysia the most corrupted place to live in and see what happened in 2020? I guess malay pig will go back to Indonesia as Malaysia don’t belong to them, they are also immigrants from Sumatra, Sulawesi, Jawa, etc.

Please get it into your pea-sized otak udang plastered with layers and layers of tahi babi encased in your kepala kayu that Malaysia belong to the Orang Asli who are the true bumis of the country.

Niffy pellmell malay pig are in fact pendatang haram who swam across the Melaka Strait illegally from Sumatra. They should be caught, given severe caning and deported back to their pig sties in Sumatra.

According to a recent study through secret agency, Nihon Himitsu Oruganitsum Bureau, shows that malays were descended from the hybrid between hog/boar and baboon, hence explains why they look like baboon and they don’t eat pork.

Our latest DNA analysis confirmed the fact.

The Japanese, Europeans etc, all eat pork, so does that mean they are all dirty and only the malays and Arabs are clean?

These malays have no brains to think properly.

The secret agency study also finds that Muslims are more violent, lazy, cunning and barbaric due to the lack of pork in their meal and the wrong doctrine.

They had been misled by Quran for generations which was copied and twisted by Muhammad from Holy Bible just to control his followers so that they don’t harm their same species/ancestor (the hybrid between hog/boar and baboon).

This malay pig race is so stupid, that they’d never amount to anything in this world.

This message board has been here for awhile, and if anyone goes back, there is no one message, that talks good about this stupid malay pig race, because everybody knows how stupid, and hateful this malay pig race is all about.

The malay pig will crumble from internal weaknesses and disappear in era of globalization – no need for others to colonize them.

Because malay pig like to be parasites and feed on the Chinese income tax!

Wait until the malay pig population increase to 90% in Malaysia, the same ratio as in Indonesia, then you will know the meaning of poor, as there will be too many malay pig to subsidize.

Then the economy collapse.

The malay pig are actually digging their own grave and they are trying to dig a deeper and bigger one now.

But all of them I have to see are being manipulated by certain top malay politicians so they will support them.

There show that the general malay pig are quite stupid and can’t think outside the box.

Only 1% of the malay pig can make it and they are the exceptions. If malay pig are not stupid, what are they?

If all malay pig jump into sea and all die!

This world will become very very beautiful.

Dear people
Language can be a barrier or promoter of goodness among people.

Do not do (or call) unto others what you do not like when done to yourself – Confucius.

Undoubtedly, abuse and negativities happen in a manner wholly repugnant to us. Lets not forget that any evil doing is not limited to any race or nation. The crime and atrocities happening in other parts of the world are proofs of that.

We accept that there occur “unacceptabilites” in our country. Being unthinkingly provocative and emotional is not the answer to a better condition.

We need votes to change “unacceptabilities”. We need ALL votes regardless who the voters are, transcending the racial boundary, to win parliamentary seats.

We may begin by “civilising” our language.

To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards of people - Emily Cox

Siphoning EPF money

On 'Why should Valuecap borrow from EPF?' Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud: MTUC condemns the government's move to bail out Valuecap to support the local stock market using RM5 billion from EPF, as the provident fund is the custodian of the workers' money and not some sort of ‘automated teller machine' for the government.
If at all the EPF were to lend its money to the government, it has to be under the condition that there be transparency and accountability in the activities for which the money has been purposed. We want to know who is doing what with the money that belongs to the workers. This is the hard-earned money of the workers, their retirement plan. How is this bailout plan going to benefit the workers? We also question the reason for this bailout. If the economic fundamentals in Malaysia are strong and reserves sufficient as has been stated several times by the government, then why is there a need to offer so much money to the GLCs? Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop should prove how the EPF would profit from this loan. Bernama had reported that Nor had given the assurance that the loan given out by EPF would reap profits for the fund judging from Valuecap's past performance. But where is the paperwork and calculations to show that this move will benefit the EPF? MTUC is concerned that the loan might be mismanaged or misused and this, in turn, would affect the returns for the contributors. Mere assurances are not enough. We want to proof that this RM5 billion will not go down the drain. (The writer is president, MTUC). Sharyn: The government wants to use our pension money to prop up the Malaysian stock market which is the playing field of the rich people. If so, the government must ensure that the EPF account holders - who are predominantly the poor to average citizens of Malaysia - be guaranteed all of our pension money with a compound 8% growth (interest). It's so selfish and sick of the government to use the poor's pension money to help the rich to make more money with all the risks taken by the poor/average citizen. We can better use the RM% billion loans to Valuecap for our children's education, shelter, medical bills etc. Why not get those rich people to prop up the share market instead? Why should they park their money overseas and gamble with our EPF money instead? Kumar14: Who is behind this Valuecap organisation? Why suddenly, this separate entity is allowed to access funds from the EPF? Are they capable enough to handle it or is it just another desperate and blind move? It has been a very infamous trend where the people's funds are channeled to a company for investment purposes and suddenly POP! the funds disappear and there is nobody to be held responsible but a RM2 shell company. Charge who? Sue whom? The RM2 company (just a registered name)? We have seen this many times. People in power and with connections allow such things to go through and reap/rob the people's wealth and then blame it on organisations which actually don't exist. What if a lot of EPF funds are looted via such scams and nobody is to be pointed at? Where will the government get the funds to replenish the EPF? The people are very bored, disappointed, angry and frustrated at seeing all these dumb and unaccounted for measures being allowed by the government with lame excuses. Please, somebody verify the true purpose, integrity and capability of anybody attempting to use the people's fund.
