Najib’s guilty verdict: Restoration of judiciary must continue

PEXELS

Today’s verdict in the SRC International trial finding Najib Razak guilty of all seven charges of criminal breach of trust, abuse of power and money laundering is an important decision with far-reaching political implications.

The appeals court judges have upheld the exhaustive judgment of the High Court judge as well as the RM210m fine and 12-year jail term imposed on Najib.

Najib’s appeal to the Federal Court will probably take place next year. Meanwhile, he remains an MP but will not be able to contest in the general election.  

The verdict sends a powerful message to the corrupt: no one is above the law and crime does not pay. The guilty verdict on a former prime minister shows no one is untouchable and no one can escape scot-free. It is a timely message given the state of corruption in the country, where many appear to be living beyond their means. Full statement on Aliran website

PENANG ACCUMULATED RESERVES OF RM1.82B IN 2020,SAYS CM Friday, 03 Dec 2021 05:01 PM MYT “Therefore, I wish to reiterate that the state’s accumulated reserves only decreased from RM2.10 billion in 2019 to RM1.82 billion in 2020,” he said. RM1.82B is a lot and lot of money. Why can’t some of this money be allocated as loans/aid for ” Boats, engines, nets and housing , and the rest as development projects – skill training, education scheme for fishermen’s children, build four jetties and a 100-metre-long navigation channel”.

ENVIRONMENT MINISTRY WARNS OF POSSIBLE FLASH FLOODING IN PENANG – Rachel Yeoh /  
18 Dec 2021 2:12PM

“Beach clean-up programme held in conjunction with the National Environment Day 2021 at Bayview Beach Hotel….. when these items are recycled, they can generate income.” 

https://www.thevibes.com/articles/news/49938/environment-ministry-warns-of-possible-

shriek

No understand as the statement is made by CENTRAL NATIONAL department and not Pengland state. Further how to get flood near the wide open sea? You mean Pengland experience water flood in the beach and a clean up was carried to prevent flood in the beach?

Green

The news article above involves 2 subjects. (a), An impending flood in the northern region. (b), clean up of rubbish waste, recycling and revenue from it on National Environment Day 2021.

If one pretends to be clueless, then definitely one pretends not to understand it. Pretenders are most unfortunate people. Fortune most
times gives them a miss.

You are blurr as yourBN/PN boss is insuinating those in the North are throwing rubbish around but in the Central and East are good citizen. What kind of BN/PN boss as instead the other regions are having big flood. Further what kind of your boss and subject like you cleaning the beaches will not flood the interior?

The flooding disaster just showed there is no leadership, bad coordination among government agencies, agencies lost of their roles, clueless ministers, glamour seeking politicians. Our Government is totally lost in direction.

The storms appeared to be hitting not only the country but also the reputation of PM Ismail Sabri’s 4-month-old government, which faces its first serious crisis besides the Covid-19 pandemic. Angry netizens have called the response “delayed” and “futile.”

The worst flash flood disaster happened in January 1971 when 32 people were killed and 180,000 people were affected. Obviously, the government lied when it said the disaster was a 1-in-100-year flooding.

GEORGE TOWN: Penang has been ranked as the third-best island in the world to retire in once again this year.

In a list published by International Living, Penang was the only island in Asia listed and is noted for its friendly and helpful populace.

Will this help MM2H? More inflow of foreign retirees?

Need to upgrade skills and knowledge to be relevant and competitive in value-added activities that could command higher wages. Have proper family planning in order to minimise unnecessary burden that jeopardize the quality of life.

shriek

Nons are forced to decrease. Pengland kias has no prospects and many are exporting and helping neighours, Soon, red dot claim Pengland hokkien and assam mee is from red dot.
How many foregners compete with Pengland kias for housing? Foreigners eat durians and hot spicy assam along the dusty road? If they have $$ why eat so unhygienic along the dusty road and open sewer like kopi o. Their homeland houses cost millions and why buy a chip house in Pengland?

Joyful moment for Loh family in Penang.

Aaah, TMM did it again. He used an inappropriate example and his got his finger burned. He couldn’t see the elephant ( FOOD ) but saw the ant ( CHOP STICKS ) and made a remark. Everyone in this nation of ours, enjoys each others food. Its a natural thing.

If you have no idea, please ask your Think Tank people and follow their advise. They were set up to advise the state government and you, are they not. In your 20/30 green book, they have advised the state not to destroy the fishing ground. Why are you not listening ? Understand that the right action speaks way louder than just mere words. The fishing grounds requires revitalization and maintenance and Penang state govt. must set aside funds for that and for the fishing communities’ development.

Why gomen orso not set aside funds for gee, goat, croc farming? Why only funds for fish? Smell fishy?

Green

Hallo shriek, nothing fishy here. You are most welcome to ask state govt. funds for gee – ?, goat, croc, camel, kangaroo, buffalos and any other farming you fancy. CM says he has RM1.8 billion in reserve. He did not mention what he plans to do with it.

shriek

So you are No1 in starting to ask for tolong forvfunds? JFK what the state can do for me and what is for me? Not what we can do?

so kopi tiam, hokkien mee will be asking gomen for help? Gomen one day order kopi o and next day hokkien mee to help them? It takes half a year to help all the pengkias in their rice bowl.

No problem – lets go back to good old days of UMNO. Dr Koh please come back. After can save more $$$ if there is no election.

Green

Hallo shriek, persistent. Why disturb Dr and Gerakan. They are quiet now, peaceful and contented. Should just let them be. MCA on the other hand seem to know how to butter the bread, you may want to consider. Progress, yes but not if it means putting sand on someone’s rice bowl, cause misery and suffering. Penangites don’t need that kind of progress.

Minute

Time to consider Siti Kassim’s Gerak Independent for next GE?

shriek

Green, MCA butter bread crumbs and leaders care nfor themselves.They eat KFC but others are eating the chicken bones. If sand is not used, Pengland kias will be still staying in Wong Fei Hoong shophouse, Tungland so happy that he is living in a condo built with help from sand, Pengland kias students have to progress and learn computer, fuzzy logic so that they can get higher pay job or you want Pengalnd kias to still go out hunting for fish or harvesting oil palms which are cow and bull work.

shriek

The world demands more chips and why Penang has electronic factories in the past such as Physic students can join the electronic engineering students to work in the manufacturing? Manufacturing is not rice bowl?

Intel only invest in chip packaging and testing in Penang and Kulim, not chip R&D or fabrication. SPM can do the trick, no need engineering graduates?

Sink apor, hong kong, dubai etc have many reclamation and have articially build love nest for the fishes, Show us that artifical islands are unstainable

Green

Mother nature requires revitalization, maintenance and preservation etc. Human life requires sustenance and nourishment. Nature and Human different life span different time set. Penang do not need reclamation. Plenty of land on the mainland. Foolish state govt. also pretend like shriek.

State govt. should look into developing south fishermen area as a tourist area. Sea food restaurants, chalets, eco-tourism etc. There is no need to copy or follow S’pore, HK or any other.

shriek

You are cluess and contradict yourself. Sink apor have Sea food, chalets, kelongs for tourits half a century ago. You have been sleeping. Your former boss LCY asked his Sink apor relative architect to design Komatar. Peng land has been copying and now many Pengland kias go down to get any original ideas, style and method,

Yes Peng land has plently of land, You live in Mainland or like others prefers community with activties and commerce?

Clueful

You mean to say Penang leaders don’t know anything one ah. How come like this one. How about your present Boss n company. Don’t know anything one also, ah. Mean they are clueless, ah How come
you say like this. Mainland useless also ah? Better return back .
Why keep. Your Bosses know you going around saying this?

shriek

You mean your BN/PN boss said it is alright to cut and pave on the Mainland? Another NIMBY. Whereas one can do anything on the reclaimed land as it is barren and will not get any flood? But fishes can revitalised as if Pengland kias can make love nest and lobangs for the fishes

You got me there, shriek. Me a NIMBY. Not In My Back Yard, I tell yeh! He, he.
