  1. The rezoning of land is so open to routine corruption.

    Changes to zoning can provide windfall gains to some landowners, providing the incentive for collusion between politicians and landowners about which areas are favourably rezoned.

    Billions of ringgits of economic benefit are being regularly extracted from the general population by well-connected landowners through political rezoning decisions.

    The arrest and prosecution of Lim Guan Eng should be used to highlight the systematic favouritism in rezoning decisions.

    Instead Pakatan Hypocrite in defending Lim Guan Eng called the arrest and prosecution a political persecution.

    Lim Guan Eng was charged under Section 23 of MACC Act 2009, which criminalises the use of a public office for personal gratification.

    Lim Guan Eng was accused of having committed the offence on July 18, 2014 at a Penang State Planning Committee meeting, by approving the rezoning of 2 pieces of lands from agricultural to housing in favour of Magnificent Emblem Sdn Bhd. This is purported to have benefited him and his wife, Betty Chew.

    Just three weeks prior, Phang Li Koon and Lim Guan Eng had signed an options agreement dated 23.6.2014 whereby Lim Guan Eng is granted a 5 year option tenure to purchase the Jalan Pinhorn bungalow at RM2.8m.

  2. Ex-PM Mahathir Mohamad: Malaysia ‘will go to the dogs’ – UpFront

    Jun 25, 2016 – Mahathir Mohamad, wants to “save Malaysia” and oust the country’s current prime minister Najib Razak over claims that he mismanaged the economy, suppressed free speech and allegedly took hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes, all accusations Razak denies.

    The “Save Malaysia” movement, led by Mahathir and made up of opposition leaders from across the political spectrum, is centred around a multimillion-dollar corruption scandal that alleges that nearly $700m found in Najib’s personal bank accounts came from the state-funded 1Malaysia development fund. Najib, however, says the money was a campaign donation from Saudi Arabia that has since been returned.

    Mahathir, who served as the country’s prime minister for 22 years, says that Najib must “go” and that his “leadership undermines” Malaysia’s institutions.

    In this week’s Headliner, Mehdi Hasan challenges Mahathir on his campaign to oust the current prime minister.

    “He’s gone off track,” Mahathir says. “He has done a lot of things which are actually wrong, and as a result he has put the country in a very bad position.”

    Commenting on Malaysia’s future, Mahathir adds, “If Najib is there, this country will go to the dogs.”

    In a wide-ranging interview, the former prime minister also discusses his political future, his legacy and his history of anti-Semitic remarks.

  3. Such activity is another syiok sendiri exercise.
    No point holding such event in an urban area, let alone in KL and conducted in English.

    Aliran should conduct such ceramah in Bahasa Malaysia, in rural area to target those ill-informed and ignorant Malaysians.
