DAP demands lawyers presence at MACC interrogation

KUALA LUMPUR, May 24 — The DAP today demanded the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) allow lawyers to be present with witnesses during interrogations.

DAP National Chairman Karpal Singh said that witnesses should have access to their lawyers since they could now be hauled up to be questioned beyond office hours.

“Witnesses should have a right to counsel when giving statements (to the MACC).

“Lawyers should be present... simply videoing is not enough,” Karpal told The Malaysian Insider.

The veteran lawyer was responding to a report earlier today which quoted the MACC complaints committee as saying that it had proposed installing CCTV cameras in interrogation areas as part of overhauls to investigation procedures following the death of Teoh Beng Hock last year.

Sarawak for Change – The Sibu Declaration

(Adopted by DAP Sarawak State Committee on 23rd May 2010 In Sibu, Sarawak)

The Sibu Miracle on 16th May 2010 is the beginning of the awakening of Sarawak.

From now on, no one will take us – the people of Sarawak – for granted. One small step in winning Sibu is one big step to winning power in Petrajaya, and a giant step forward to winning power in Putrajaya.Sarawak is rich. It has the largest land mass in Malaysia and an abundance of resources such as timber, land, palm oil, gold, oil and gas.

Putrajaya dream not far-fetched, says Kit Siang

Pakatan Rakyat's victory in the recent Sibu by-election proved that all is not lost for the coalition in its hopes of winning the 13th general election, and forming the next federal government.

In his blog, DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang also said the days Barisan Nasional considered Sabah and Sarawak as its “fixed deposits” are over.

“The BN survived the onslaught of the 2008 political tsunami due to the support from Sabah and Sarawak.
“However, it must have realised now that it cannot take the voters of the two states for granted by disregarding their legitimate grievances and discontent,” he said.

Defeat a bitter pill to swallow

PJ UTARA MP Tony Pua was up early on Monday despite having had only a few hours of sleep after a long day and an even longer night.

But Pua, who had been among the DAP young Turks running the Sibu by-election campaign, was his usual adrenalin-driven self, talking a mile-a-minute, his thoughts often running faster than his words. No Monday blues for him, for sure.

The voter turnout, Pua claimed, was actually about 70%, much higher than the official figure of 59% flashed out on polling day.

“When I heard about the turnout, I was really worried. I thought, mati already,” said Pua.

Keputusan rasmi PRK Sibu: DAP menang, majoriti 398 undi

DAP-PR telah berjaya membuat kejutan di PRK Sibu, apabila diumumkan secara rasmi menang dengan majoriti 398 undi.  DAP-PR meraih 18,845 undi, mengatasi SUPP-BN yang memperolehi 18,447 undi. Calon bebas mencatat 232 undi, sementara terdapat 208 undi rosak, dan 190 undi yang tidak dikembalikan.
Sebelum ini, kemungkinan "perkiraan semula" dan peningkatan undi pos telah mencungkil keraguan sekumpulan penduduk Sibu. Mereka sanggup kehujanan di luar pusat perkiraan undi melaungkan "Kami mahu perubahan!", disusuli kemudian dengan "Tipu! Tipu! Tipu!"
Lebih awal lagi, DAP-PR dikhabarkan memenangi PRK Sibu dengan 665 undi majoriti. Pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat telah mengumumkan kemenangan bagi pihak DAP, sementara pemimpin BN dilaporkan telah meninggalkan dewan. Juga, BN mungkin meminta agar undi dikira semula.

DAP Says May 13 Rally In Kuala Terengganu Insensitive

SIBU, May 12 (Bernama) -- The DAP wants Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and the Malaysian Cabinet to denounce plans by a right wing non-governmental organisation to hold a mammoth rally in Kuala Terengganu Thursday.

DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang said the rally which coincides with the 41st anniversary of the racial riots that happened in the country on May 13, 1969 was extremely insensitive.

"In line with the 1Malaysia concept, the Prime Minister should take a stand against all forms of extremism and intolerance," he told reporters here Wednesday.

Lim said he had sent Open Tweets (on the Internet's Twitter facility) to the Cabinet on the matter this morning and hoped that Najib would have good news for Malaysians on the matter after today's Cabinet meeting.

Sabah DAP wants full details on govt expenditure

By Queville To

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah state government has been asked to provide a comprehensive report of the projects that have been completed in the state. The state DAP, in making the request, said the current summary report provided by the government was insufficient.

Its vice-chairman Edward Mujie said a detailed breakdown of project costs was necessary in order to ascertain if all the government projects had actually been implemented.

Grandma meets her idol at last

SIBU – An 82-year-old grandmother was thrilled to meet her idol – Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

At a dinner function held at a coffeeshop in Jalan Datuk on Friday night, the excited woman was led to Lim's seat as he sat waiting for his turn to address the 300-strong audience.
Grasping both his hands, Ling Chin Geok was all smiles as she talked to the DAP secretary-general for the first time.

The young politician offered his seat to her and a beaming Ling sat down to have a private conversation with her hero. Lim was all ears and grinning widely.
Guan Eng made Ling's day as she happily chats with the 'handsome young man'.
He then offered to stick a DAP logo on her blouse, to which she agreed.

DAP to use national issues

SIBU: National issues will be Pakatan Rakyat’s main ammunition against Barisan Nasional during the by-election, said Sarawak DAP chairman Wong Ho Leng. “We need to remind the Sibu electorate that this is more than just a by-election.

“A victory for Barisan will mean they are getting closer to the two-third majority in Parliament while a DAP victory could mark the beginning of change in Sarawak,” said Wong, who is the DAP candidate in the polls on May 16.

Wong said Barisan had governed the country for over 50 years and its administration had often disappointed the people.

He also took pot shots at Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.

Kow Cheong Wei mencadangkan agar MCA keluar Barisan Nasional

Ketua Pemuda MCA Selangor, Kow Cheong Wei mencadangkan agar MCA keluar Barisan Nasional bersama-sama parti komponen yang lain, termasuk Gerakan dan MIC.
"Kami tidak mahu dipandang ringan.  Jadi, apakah kita perlu meninggalkan BN, berdikari dan kemudiannya kembali ke BN semula?" Kow Cheong Wei dipetik oleh Sinchew Daily untuk berkata sedemikian dalam satu dialog politik bersama Pemuda MCA di Selangor dan Wilayah Persekutuan pada 30 April.
Beliau mendakwa dirinya menerima banyak sms yang mencadangkan agar MCA keluar dari BN.  Jadi, Kow Cheong Wei melontarkan persoalannya, dalam keadaan di mana matlamat BN tidak selari dengan dirinya, apakah MCA yang mendahulukan masyarakat Cina perlu keluar dari BN, membina kewibawaan dirinya di kalangan komuniti Cina, dan kembali ke BN selepas itu (cukup berwibawa)?

AminulRasyid Death

Kit Siang says panel ‘powerless’

By Asrul Hadi Abdullah Sani
KUALA LUMPUR, May 4 — Lim Kit Siang (picture) today described the government’s special panel on Aminulrasyid Amzah’s shooting death as “powerless” and asked the Cabinet to put an end to what he called the Home Ministry’s “guerilla” response to rising public anger.
The DAP leader also criticised the ministry for flip-flopping on the “powers” of the panel.
“The powerless Special Panel into Aminulrasyid’s police killing is neither fish nor fowl even with Tun Haniff as member, as well as other members including former Suhakam commissioner Denison Jayasooria, crime analyst Kamal Affendi Hashim, lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (Asli) chief executive officer Dr Michael Yeoh and UiTM deputy vice-chancellor Prof Abdul Halim Sidek.
“The guerilla response of the Home Ministry could be seen from the on-the-run chop-and-change as to what the Special Panel can and cannot do,” he said.

Oil 'sell-out': All avoiding answers, says Lim

By FMT Staff

PETALING JAYA: The statements by Wisma Putra, Petronas, Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and former premier Abdullah Ahmad Badawi regarding the oil “sell-out” to Brunei all have one common purpose – to avoid answering two important questions, said DAP leader Lim Kit Siang.
The two questions are:
  • When and why Malaysia ceded away Malaysian sovereignty to two oil and gas-rich offshore areas in South China Sea, namely Block L and Block M, in favour of Brunei? and
  • When did Brunei surrender its territorial claim of sovereignty to Limbang and recognise full Malaysian sovereignty instead?
Lim said although Wisma Putra, Najib and Abdullah knew fully well that their statements would be scrutinised for answers to these two most pertinent questions, all their verbiage have one common thrust: to avoid answering them.
