Invitation: Public Forum – The ISA and the Police Reform Process: What’s next after Pak Lah

Invitation: Public Forum – The ISA and the Police Reform Process: What’s next after Pak Lah

In December 2003, the Prime Minister, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced the formation of a Royal Commission to Enhance the Operation and Management of the Royal Malaysia Police to examine the conduct and management of the police. He went on to say, “The Police Must Be Well-Versed In Human Rights When Discharging Their Duties And Dealing With The Public. Police Brutality, Poor Service, Corruption And Other Negative Traits Must Be Eradicated”

In 2005, the Royal Commission released a report and make 125 recommendation to improve the police force. The commission highlighted in its report the numerous deficiencies in the PDRM’s compliance with human rights obligation as the consequence of two main factors: Firstly-The existence of a range of preventive legislations that places restrictions upon fundamental liberties. The second is police abuse of safeguards provided for human rights in prescribed laws and regulation

Today, it’s already been 4 years since the Royal Commission launched its report and recommendations to make the PDRM accountable and adhere to human rights principles. Despite, the recommendations, we continue to witness police abuse of power and arbitrary arrest and detention of people. The latest score of ISA arrest of Teresa Kwok, Raja Petra and Tan Hoon Cheng and the arrest of Suaram activist Cheng Lee Wee under Section 28 of the ISA raise concerns on the deterioration of human rights standards in Malaysia and raise serious questions on the role of the police and abuse of power.

In recent events, The Prime Minister announced his intention to quit the government and hand over power to his probable successor Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. The question now remains whether, the reform initiated by Prime Minister Pak Lah will continue and take effect or will it be a matter of the forgotten past. Will the Prime Minister’s reform agenda take place? Is the ISA gives the police wide and arbitrary powers to undermine the rights of the people?

We aim to discuss this issue and provide further information to the public at large.

Орально генитальный контакт может быть односторонним или обоюдным и одновременным. В последнем случае партнеры занимают позу на боку лицом к гениталиям друг друга, такая поза называется “96”, или мужчина лежит на спине, подложив под голову подушку, а женщина стоит над ним на четвереньках. У женщин с клиторическим типом возбудимости оргазм при куннилингусе наступает, как правило, быстрее, чем при коитусе. Если вы захотите установить новый опыт сексуального отношения, это потребует большого терпения и такта. Вероятно, лучше всего обратиться к этой теме на нейтральной почве – например, во время еды или за бокалом освежающего напитка, когда у вас обоих снимается напряжение, и вы расслабляетесь. Разговор начинайте косвенно. Обращаясь к чему-либо прочитанному или увиденному в телепередаче, обсуждая опыт подруги или пересказывая сновидение…

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.
