Police To Record Guan Eng’s Statement Instigating Children In A Video To “Hate Government”

Police will call Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to record his statement on a video showing him instigating children to hate the federal government at a launch of a tuition programme in Jelutong in Penang, last Saturday.

Penang police chief Datuk A.Thaiveegan said besides Lim, the police would also call several other individuals, including the complainants, to record their statements.

“The police will also request for a report from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to trace the owner of the social web account that viralled the video concerned to facilitate investigation,” he told a media conference in George Town, today.

He said so far, the police had recorded statements of three individuals to facilitate investigation of the case.

The police had received four reports on the alleged video, he said, adding that the reports were lodged by individuals and non-governmental organisations, including political parties.

“After we have completed the investigation papers, we will refer the matter to the Deputy Public Prosecutors’ Office for further action,” he said.

The 32-second video showed Lim teaching a group of children to sing a song condemning the Goods and Services Tax (GST).


Musa Credits The Passing Of Siringan Gubat As A Lost To The State.

Datuk Siringan Gubat was a hard worker particularly in developing human capital in the state, said Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman today.

Describing the Resource Development and Information Technology Minister as a good friend, he said Siringan had made considerable contribution to the development of the people in the state, particularly the youths by providing much training opportunities through the ministry which he helmed since 2013.

“I am very sad for having lost a friend as well as a member of the cabinet who was hard-working and very dedicated to his career.

“On behalf of the state government and Barisan Nasional, I wish to convey our condolences to Siringan’s family.

“I hope his family will be strong and have perseverance in facing this difficult time,” he said when met by reporters after paying his respects to Siringan at Wisma Fook Lu Siew in Kota Kinabalu,today.

Musa, who spent about an hour to pay his respects to Siringan, was also joined by members of the state cabinet and the State Secretary Tan Sri Sukarti Wakiman.

Siringan, 68, died following a heart attack at 10.57 last night.

He is survived by his wife, Datin Rozelind Gubat, four sons, a daughter and a grandchild.

The late Siringan, who was also acting deputy president of the United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Organisation (UPKO) will be taken to Kampung Kinirasan, Ranau on March 23 for burial on the next day (March 24).

Siringan became a Member of Parliament for Ranau since 2008 before becoming a State Assemblyman for Paginatan on 2013.


Najib Launches TV OKEY, To Boost Effective News And Development Especially In Sabah And Sarawak.

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the new TV OKEY channel launched tonight is capable of achieving two main objectives of the national broadcasting policy, namely effective news or message delivery and development of creative industry, especially in Sabah and Sarawak.

Najib said the channel specified for audience in Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan, was to enable the message to be delivered both ways directly between the government and the people.

“We want the message between the people and the government to be delivered both ways and bottom up. That means that the channel will give focus to the people at the grass roots level on Sabah and Sarawak to express themselves and to voice out their opinions to the general public and the government.”

“Besides, we, as the government, would also want to effectively deliver a message to the people, not only in national language, but also in their local dialects, especially with the diversified ethnicities in the two states. In Sabah alone, there are 52 ethnic groups. That is the official number, the unofficial number may be bigger. In Sarawak, there are 27 ethnic groups.”

“Today, the Kadazan and Iban communities can only watch two news bulletins (on RTM). Other communities hardly have the chance and can only learn about the news on radio. With the launch of this new TV OKEY channel, even the Dusun and Bajau communities can watch the news,” he said when launching the channel in Kota Kinabalu.

Also present were the Prime Minister’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman, Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak, as well as Sabah and Sarawak state cabinet ministers.

According to Najib, TV OKEY would also be the catalyst for further development of the creative industry in Sabah and Sarawak, hence generating income for the country and the two states.

He said the objective could be achieved because the people in Sabah and Sarawak were well known for their creativity and talents in terms of singing, dancing, script-writing, documentary production and so forth.

The prime minister said TV OKEY was also a new way for the creative abilities of the people of Sabah and Sarawak to be developed and polished, as the channel provides more air time for the two states.

“I believe there are many more new talents out there. Of course, new talents will get a morale booster to pursue a career in the creative industry, which we have listed as one of the national key economic areas,” he said.


Sabah’s Continental Shelf Boundary Never Changed Since 1954 – Dr. Jeffrey

“It is indisputable that the boundary of Sabah extended to the continental shelf including the seabed and its subsoil which lies beneath the high seas since 1954 with the adoption of the Queen’s Order in Council in 1954 and it has never been lawfully changed since then” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, President of Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku.

“Sarawak’s boundary was also extended to the continental shelf in 1954 with a similar Queen’s Order in Council”, said Dr. Jeffrey in support of the statement by Chief Minister Abang Johari who correctly asserted that the boundaries of Sarawak were never lawfully changed nor assented to by the Legislative Council of Sarawak.

These boundaries of Sabah and Sarawak were clearly set out in Article 1(3) of the Federal Constitution which unequivocally provides that the boundaries of Sabah and Sarawak were the territories immediately preceding Malaysia Day in 1963, which is the 1954 boundaries.

Like Sarawak, the Sabah Legislature has never assented to any change in Sabah’s boundary since 1954, save for Labuan’s cession in 1984 as a federal territory.

Jeffrey who is also the assemblyman for Bingkor added, no laws can be passed by the Federal Parliament to alter the boundaries of Sabah and Sarawak without first amending Article 1(3).

Similarly, no laws can be passed to take away the ownership of the territories of Sabah and Sarawak and the ownership of the resources located within including Sabah and Sarawak’s oil and gas resources.

It is unconstitutional for the Petroleum Development Act and the later Territorial Seas Act to be passed and be used to change Sabah and Sarawak’s boundaries and “steal” the oil and gas resources.

It is unlawful, unconstitutional, unconscionable and inconceivable for Tun Razak on 26 March 1976 to sign and vest Sabah and Sarawak’s oil and gas resources to Petronas.

Likewise, it is unlawful and unconscionable for Harris Salleh as then Chief Minister of Sabah to sign on 14 June 1976 and agree to accept 5% of the oil and gas revenues for the oil and gas resources unlawfully vested to Petronas.

What they have done is literally to sign the “torture certificates” of all Sabahans and to condemn the future generations of Sabahans to abject poverty and impoverished lives.

Despite my promptings and repeated calls especially in the Sabah Legislature since 2013, the Sabah government, its Chief Minister and his Cabinet Members and the BN lawmakers have all failed to take any action to undo the damage. They have done nothing at all to regain Sabah’s oil and gas resources which are continuously misappropriated to develop Malaya while Sabah remains largely undeveloped and lagging behind Malaya by several decades.

For Sarawakians, they should be waiting for Abang Johari to take further steps to regain their oil and gas resources now that he has openly declared that Sarawak did not agree to alter its boundaries. This means the oil and gas still belonged to Sarawak and her people.

Will CM Abang Jo go all the way?

If not, then Sarawakians should take steps to vote in local parties like PBDS Baru and like-minded parties who are prepared to go all the way to regain Sarawak’s oil and gas resources.

For Sabah, the choice for Sabahans is pretty straight-forward. Sabah Umno-BN parties are proven toothless and unable to even get 20% cash payment or so-called “royalties” let alone protect Sabah Rights especially on Sabah’s oil and gas resources.

Other than the Gabungan Sabah (GS) parties, STAR, Parti Harapan, SAPP and PPRS, all the other parties have not agreed to fight to regain Sabah’s oil and gas resources. At best, the other parties still subservient to their Malayan political masters, including a former Prime Minister, are only asking for 20% “oil royalties”.

Only the GS parties have openly declared to take action to regain Sabah’s oil and gas ownership. Sabahan voters should bear this in mind when casting their votes in PRU-14 and reject Sabah Umno-BN and all the other parties.


Opposition Only Good At Telling Fairy Tales, Lies – Najib

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak slammed the opposition saying they were only good at making empty promises, concocting fairy tales and instigating the people.

“They make a lot of promises. Ask them about the water crisis in Selangor, about the undersea tunnel project in Penang …who is building affordable homes,” he said, alluding to the opposition’s weakness in providing infrastructure for the people.

Najib said the opposition was also always making fun of and spreading lies about the BN’s efforts to develop the country.

Giving the example of the former Sungai Besi Air Base site which is set for re-development, Najib said the opposition had lied that the project belonged to China, when in actual fact, it was Malaysian-owned.

Najib also said he recently paid a working visit to the Sendayan Air Base in Seremban and met with armed forces personnel there.

He said the staff there cried because they were happy with the comfortable housing that had been provided by the government.

“Do not believe the opposition because they lie a lot and now they are influencing young children about the GST when it is with the GST that the government is providing facilities like schools and hospitals, and doing many other things,” he said.
