Cikgu tampaq murid tahun satu...akai kat juboq kot...


Murid Darjah 1 Ditampar Cikgu Sampai Lekat Kesan Jari...

Tak dapat dinafikan ramai kurang setuju dengan tindakan ibu bapa pada hari ini yang gemar menyalahkan guru apabila anak mereka dimarahi di sekolah.

Kebanyakannya memberi dalil zaman dahulu guru pukul anak murid juga tapi sudahnya baru mereka jadi manusia.

Kami pun setuju bahawa guru harus diberi kebebasan mengajar murid termasuk mengajar dengan memukul dan memberi denda jika terlalu nakal tapi agak-agak jugalah kan.

Kalau dah bagi penampar sampai berbekas kesan jari ini rasanya bukan memukul dengan niat mahu mengajar tapi lebih kepada mengikut perasaan marah.

Kini gambar kanak-kanak yang baru berusia 7 tahun didakwa murid sebuah sekolah rendah di Pulau Pinang dengan kesan tamparan di pipi ini telah tersebar di laman-laman sosial. 

Difahamkan susulan kejadian ini, pemeriksaan di Hospital Besar Pulau Pinang serta laporan polis telah dibuat sebelum dibawa ke pengetahuan JPN dan kementerian pendidikan. 

Kami harap selepas ini guru akan lebih sabar dalam mendidik anak-anak apatah lagi yang masih kecil seperti ini manakala ibu bapa pula, jalinkanlah hubungan baik dengan pihak sekolah dan guru anak anda demi kebaikan bersama. - mynewshub.my

Dept to probe ‘teacher slapping pupil’ incident...

The Penang state Education Department has directed the North East district education office to investigate claims that a Year One pupil in Tanjung Tokong was slapped by a teacher yesterday.

Penang Education director Osman Husain said a report on the incident was expected to be known within the next two days.

“At the moment I cannot comment further because I am still waiting for the investigation report,” he told reporters after the Penang Wasatiyyah seminar in Bukit Mertajam today.

It was officially opened by Deputy Education Minister Dr Hilmi Yahaya.

Yesterday, the mother of the Sekolah Kebangsaaan Tanjung Tokong pupil made a police report after allegedly finding red marks on her child’s left cheek.

In the police report, the 27-year-old woman claimed her child told her that he was slapped by a female teacher for walking to his friend’s desk during the English class session.

Meanwhile, Osman said the department was organising special courses to educators in the state to adapt themselves with the current situation when facing issues relating to the present generation.- Bernama

Tamat sajalah kemelut MB ini,rakyat dah naik meluat...


Bukankah Sultan Selangor sudah menggunakan budi bicara dan hemahnya meminta parti-parti Pakatan Rakyat mengemukakan sekurang-kurang dua nama calon masing-masing untuk dinobatkan sebagai MB. 

Permintaan Sultan itu bukan menepati kehendak perlembagaan, tetapi adalah budibicaranya. 

Ia mungkin satu keadilan dan keperluan penting masa kini memandangkan Pakatan Rakyat gagal sepakat dalam soal calon MB. 

Tidak timbul kegagalan itu kerana apa, atau pun kerana ia satu permainan Mustapa Ali dan Abdul Hadi Awang, yang nyata tidak ada persepakatan.

Tetapi sultan telah meminta berbuat demikian. Bagi saya permintaan Sultan itu satu kemurahan daripada baginda. 

Bukankah dengan tidak memenuhi kehendak Sultan itu ia boleh menyebabkan perbuatan itu ditafsirkan sebagai mengingkarkan kehendak istana? - mso; baca seterusnya


aku punya berpendapat...

Aku pun dah naik meluat dengan kemelut ini. Ikut saja apa yang di kehendaki tuanku sultan. 

Aku setuju dengan pendapat MSO ini yang mengatakan bahawa ini permintaan sultan,anugerah sajalah tak payah rujuk kepada perlembagaan sana sini. 

Apa2 pun PR perlu berterima kasih kepada tuanku kerana tuanku tidak membubarkan DUN Selangor, malah tuanku begitu arif meminta PR cadang 2-3 nama lagi. Biarlah tuanku tentukan siapa pilihan tuanku asalkan PR masih berkuasa di Selangor. Mana tahu mungkin tuanku pilih Wan Azizah?


Jangan pula kerana keegoan pemimpin2 PR menyebabkan PR terus hilang kuasa di Selangor. 

Kita kena ingat sama yang badak lapaq(umno) sentiasa dok ternganga tunggu nak balun reserved 3 bilion yang terkumpul itu dan depa boleh buat apa saja ikut kemampuan depa...t/s


3 Sept tarikh akhir hantar nama calon MB(Sept 3 - royal deadline for MB candidate)..

Istana Selangor hari ini menghantar surat rasmi kepada parti-parti Pakatan Rakyat menitahkan mereka menghantar lebih daripada dua nama calon menteri besar sebelum 3 September depan.

Surat itu dihantar oleh pegawai Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah dengan tangan kepada Ibu Pejabat PKR di Petaling Jaya  kira-kira jam 3.15 petang.

Surat yang dialamatkan kepada Presiden PKR, Datin Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, dengan salinan kepada Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang dan Setiausaha Agung DAP Lim Guan Eng turut mahukan calon yang dinamakan itu beragama Islam dan berketurunan Melayu menurut Perkara L1 (2), Undang-undang Tubuh Negeri Selangor.

Kandungan surat yang dilihat Malaysiakini itu tiada merujuk sebarang nota mengenai jantina calon menteri besar dan ini bermakna Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail masih tidak ditolak Istana.

Surat itu ditandatangani Setiausaha Sulit Sultan Selangor Datuk Abdul Munir Bani itu.

Semalam, Sultan menangguh menerima peletakan jawatan Khalid sehingga penggantinya ditentukan.

Munir berkata, Sultan Selangor juga menitahkan agar pemimpin PAS, PKR dan DAP mencadangkan lebih daripada dua nama sebagai calon  layak menggantikan Khalid.

Ia, menurut Munir lagi, bagi memudahkan sultan menentukan dan memberi perkenannya.

Sementara itu, Malaysiakini mendapati kenyataan media dari Munir bertarikh 14 Mei tahun lalu menyatakan hanya nama Khalid yang dicadangkan oleh Pakatan Rakyat.

Kenyataan itu merupakan kenyataan Istana mengiktiraf pelantikan semula Khalid selepas pilihan raya umum lalu.

"Ketua-ketua komponen Pakatan Rakyat iaitu PKR, PAS dan DAP telah mengemukakan hanya satu nama iaitu Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim sebagai calon menteri besar Selangor," petik kenyataan itu.

Surat dari Istana bertarikh 7 Mei sebelum itu turut menjelaskan Sultan meminta empat nama daripada Pakatan Rakyat sebagai calon menteri besar.

Sementara itu Pengerusi DAP Selangor Tony Pua mendakwa Khalid 'mengarut' dan mengesahkan bahawa parti-parti Pakatan Rakyat hanya mengemukakan nama Khalid untuk jawatan menteri besar kepada istana selepas pilihan raya umum 2008 dan 2013.

Dalam SMS kepada Malaysiakini, Pua berkata tidak pernah ada lebih daripada satu nama yang dihantar kepada istana untuk jawatan MB.

Petang tadi, Khalid menolak hujah PKR dan DAP bahawa ia akan mengemukakan satu nama sahaja, Presiden PKR Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, kepada istana untuk menjadi menteri besar yang baru, berdasarkan kepada konvensyen yang lalu.

Sebaliknya, Khalid mendakwa parti-parti Pakatan mengemukakan lebih daripada satu nama, termasuk namanya, kepada istana selepas dua pilihan raya umum sebelum ini.


The Selangor palace has set next Wednesday as the deadline for Pakatan Rakyat parties to submit the names of candidates for the menteri besar post.

The date, Sept 3, was stated in a letter from the palace, signed by the sultan's private secretary Mohammad Munir Bani, to Pakatan parties today, which was sighted by Malaysiakini.

PKR and DAP have insisted on only submitting PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail's name despite the sultan yesterday requesting that Pakatan parties submit two or more names.

Mohammad Munir, meanwhile, said that the requirement for the parties to submit more than two names was so that it would be easier for the sultan to come to a decision.

The letter, addressed to PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim and copied to PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, also stated that the parties submit more than two names.

The letter was sent by an official from the palace by hand to the PKR headquarters in Petaling Jaya at around 3.15pm today.

The letter, apart from stating that the parties must submit more than two names, asked for the candidates to be Muslim and Malay, in accordance to the laws of the constitution of Selangor.

The letter’s contents, however, did not dictate for a specific gender for the candidates. As such, Wan Azizah had not been rejected by the palace.

The sultan of Selangor yesterday consented to Abdul Khalid Ibrahim’s request to relinquish his post as menteri besar.

However, the ruler had asked him to remain at the helm until a replacement is appointed.- mk




Should the Agong decide the next PM...

The question posed by the Selangor constitutional crisis to all Malaysians is not about who is the best candidate for Selangor, or even whether a woman can be a head of government, but this: should the head of state be given the power to pick the head of government?

Specifically, should the Yang di-Pertuan Agong be given the power to choose the next prime minister of Malaysia after the 14th general election (GE14)?

In the 13th general election (GE13), 51 percent of Malaysians found that their votes could not put their favourite prime ministerial candidate in power, as a result of the Election Commission's amazing work in malapportionment and gerrymandering of constituencies.

If despite all the flaws and weaknesses of Pakatan Rakyat, the coalition wins an even larger vote share, say, 60 percent, to secure them a clear majority of 77 percent in Parliament, could it decide its own prime minister? Will the Agong ask each coalition party to submit two candidates for his consideration?

This is not imagination running wild, but exactly the consequence if the Sultan of Selangor now gets his way in choosing the next menteri besar.

After all, the provisions in the federal and Selangor constitutions on the appointment of the chief executive are similar. If the Sultan of Selangor can enjoy extra-constitutional power, why should the next Agong (the Sultan of Kelantan if GE14 is held after 2017; Sultan of Kedah if before) be denied the same power? How can His Majesty be stopped then if His Royal Highness cannot be now?

And the next questions: why do we need elections for, if the political parties contest only for the power to nominate a number of prime-ministerial candidates? How can we possibly have "responsible governments" if heads of governments are chosen, not by whether they command the backing of the legislatures, but by whether they please the palaces?

The very existence of parliamentary government and constitutional monarchy will then be called into question.

Power to assess, not to choose

Article 43(2)(a) of the Federal Constitution stipulates: "The Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall first appoint as Perdana Menteri (Prime Minister) to preside over a cabinet a member of the House of Representatives who in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the House."

In similar language, Article 53(2) (a) of the Selangor State Constitution stipulates: "His Royal Highness shall first appoint as Menteri Besar to preside over the State Executive Council, a member of the Legislative Assembly who in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the Assembly."

While Article 40(2)(a) of the Federal Constitution and Article 55(2)(a) of the Selangor Constitution provide for royal discretion in the appointment of the prime minister or menteri besar, the discretionary power is purely on the exercise of judgment on the commanding of "the confidence of the majority of the members" of the respective legislatures.

Such judgment is necessary only when it is not clear which party/coalition has the majority in the legislature. A head of state has no discretion in appointment, beyond the exercising of such judgment, and certainly the state constitution mentions nothing about his preference.

By asking the Pakatan Rakyat parties to submit more than one name, the sultan has acted beyond his constitutional power. He is effectively transforming his power to assess to the power to choose.

Instead of approving whoever commands "the confidence of the majority of the members of the assembly" (technically 29 assemblypersons at the minimum), the sultan is asking the parties to make themselves a shortlisting board and himself the final decision maker.

Hasn't this be done before?

The Sultan of Selangor is certainly not the first ruler who desires more power than a constitutional monarch is entitled to. So, why should we jump on this? If Umno has bowed on this before, why can't Pakatan Rakyat just do the same? Two reasons rule out our excuses for silence.

First, the majority bloc is crystal clear - Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has had the support of 30 lawmakers since Aug 14 and this majority has not evaporated after 12 days, when the sultan made his unconstitutional request for extra names. To insist on an alternative candidate, the Sultan is openly sidelining and dividing the political parties - which are the basis of parliamentary government.

The severity of royal intervention into politics in this case can only be compared with the 2008 Terengganu constitutional crisis whereby the sultan appointed an Umno lone ranger, Ahmad Said (right), as menteri besar despite the objection from 22 other Umno lawmakers, who made up exactly a two-third in the House.

If the Terengganu constitutional crisis was not rectified because of the weakness of the prime minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Umno and BN, Pakatan Rakyat must stand its ground now in Selangor. If Pakatan will do whatever BN does, then what is the point of Selangorians voting for Pakatan to replace BN?

Second, the previous tussles - the Terengganu episode included - involved only the central party (Umno) and the state monarchs. Even when Umno/BN might be weak at the state level, it was strong enough at the federal level to decide its own top leader and prime minister. The accession of Najib in 2009 was decided by Umno, not by the Agong.

The same cannot be said of Pakatan now. Imagine this, in GE14, with the same Parliament's size, PKR wins 52 seats, PAS and DAP each win 59 seats and BN wins 62 seats, just exactly the same portion as in the Selangor Legislative Assembly (for convenience's sake, with Abdul Khalid Ibrahim being counted into the BN camp).

Will the Yang diPertuan Agong reject the common candidate, nominated by Pakatan Rakyat and solidly backed by PKR and DAP's 111 parliamentarians (exactly half), and request the three parties to nominate two candidates each for his consideration? Will PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang again try to broker a unity government between PAS and BN to be headed by Azmin Ali?

Poll over palace's MB
  
Clearly, Pakatan has no right to drag the nation into chaos in GE14 if the principle that the majority party/coalition decides the head of government cannot be even adhered to.

The question is not whether Wan Azizah is qualified to be the menteri besar. It is not even about  what policies Pakatan can bring to Selangor. It is about whether Pakatan still believes in and is committed to parliamentary democracy, the very basis of constitutional monarchy.

If the answer is ‘yes’, then Pakatan must stand firm on its menteri besar candidate. It must not accept a menteri besar selected by and answerable first to the Selangor palace. It cannot be a party to any compromise that may sink Malaysia into disaster after GE14.

If PAS cannot commit itself to parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy, it should just leave Pakatan. Hadi would surely be more at home as a minister in BN than an opposition leader in Pakatan.

And if, despite a clear stand from Pakatan, the constitutional crisis still persists, Wan Azizah as the leader of 30 Pakatan lawmakers should call upon the caretaker Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim to seek dissolution of the assembly.

While the menteri besar-designate does not have the legality to do so, she has every ounce of legitimacy. And Malaysians who remember the 2009 Perak constitutional crisis will stand by her.

Pakatan must be brave to face the voters. It must be brave to defend parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy in Malaysia, rather than see the nation being dragged towards chaos and instability by unscrupulous elected and unelected players.- Wong Chin Huat,mk

Sultan Selangor mohon setiap parti dalam PR kemuka 2 nama...


Sultan Selangor hari ini memperkenan Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim meletakkan jawatan sebagai menteri besar.

Menurutnya, Baginda menangguhkan sehingga perlantikkan MB Selangor yang baru ditentukan.

Sultan Selangor juga telah menitahkan agar setiap pemimpin parti PAS, PKR dan DAP mencadangkan lebih daripda dua nama daripada parti dalam Pakatan Rakyat sebagai calon MB Selangor.

“Ini bagi memudahkan Sultan untuk menentukan calon yang berkelayakan dan seterusnya memberi perkenan untuk melantik mana-mana calon yang difikirkan layak sebagai MB.

“Ini adalah sejajar dengan konvensi yang telah diamalkan secara berterusan dalam pelantikan MB Selangor sebelum ini,” jelasnya. - fmt

Mohon maaf pada istana 

Dalam kenyataannya, Khalid juga berkata, beliau menyatakan hasrat meletakkan jawatan memandangkan “dinamik politik di negeri Selangor kian meningkat dan telah menimbulkan keresahan rakyat jelata”

“Saya juga telah memohon maaf kepada DYMM Tuanku atas suasana politik masa kini yang telah menyebabkan pihak istana terheret sama dalam kemelut pentadbiran di negeri ini,” katanya.

Beliau justeru menyerahkan kepada kebijaksanaan sultan untuk mencari penyelesaian terbaik sekaligus mengembalikan kepercayaan rakyat kepada pemerintah, institusi beraja dan pentadbiran awam.

Khalid juga berharap semua pihak terutama ahli politik, media dan pengguna media sosial mengelak membuat kritikan yang menjurus untuk memperkecilkan peranan mana-mana pihak terlibat terutama institusi beraja dan raja-raja Melayu.

“Biarpun kita menghormati prinsip demokrasi yang memberi kebebasan bersuara namun adab, tatatertib dan hak-hak DYMM sultan Selangor bawah Undang-Undang Tubuh Negeri Selangor perlu dihormati demi kesejahteraan negeri,” katanya.

Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim masih kekal sebagai menteri besar Selangor sehingga Pakatan Rakyat memberi lebih daripada dua nama sebagai calon menteri besar baru. – Gambar fail The Malaysian Insider, 26 Ogos, 2014.
Sultan consents to Khalid's resignation as S'gor MB...

The sultan of Selangor has consented to Abdul Khalid Ibrahim's request to relinquish his post as menteri besar.

However, the ruler had asked him to remain at the helm until a replacement is appointed.

Khalid read the statement at a packed press conference at the state secretariat building in Shah Alam this afternoon.

While the sultan appears favourable to a smooth transition of power, he has however instructed Pakatan Rakyat leaders to propose more than two names for the post.

Previously, PKR and DAP had agreed on Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to replace Khalid.

After initially expressing support for the PKR president, PAS took a different stand after a meeting yesterday.

Earlier, Khalid had met the sultan at his palace and it was widely speculated that he would push for a dissolution of the assembly, paving the way for a snap election.


Sultan has 'absolute discretion'

Muhammad Munir also said that the sultan retains "absolute discretion" to appoint a new MB that he feels obtains the majority support of the state assembly.

Asked why he did not ask for dissolution, Khalid told reporters that he felt that his resignation was the best solution to the crisis because the issue in Selangor is about the majority not wanting him to be MB.

"The intention is not to have me as MB, so if I am no longer the MB there is no need (for state assembly dissolution or emergency sitting).

“Why are we going around in circles? If their intention is to change the MB, there are many ways and I want the best way," he said.

"The best way is to accept the request (by resigning)," he added.

He will also request the Selangor palace to release the list of candidates for the MB post that were considered but not appointed in 2008 and 2013.

This was after reporters questioned him if the same convention of submitting several names was practised when Pakatan nominated Selangor MBs both in 2008 and 2013.

"This was practised even during the times of the sultan's father, there were more than four names submitted at one point," he said.

Happy to be free from the job

Previously, PKR and DAP had agreed on PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (below) to replace Khalid.

After initially expressing support for the PKR president, PAS took a different stand after a meeting yesterday.

Earlier, Khalid had met the sultan at his palace in a highly-anticipated audience in the crisis which has dragged on for about month.

Making his announcement, Khalid also stressed that the issue of Wan Azizah's feasibility as a MB or her majority support did not arise in audience.

"No, that was not discussed at all," he said.

Khalid said he also “apologised” to the ruler as the palace was “dragged along” in the Selangor political crisis.

"I hope all parties especially politicians, media and social media users avoid from making statements or criticism to undermine the role played by all involved parties, especially the institution of monarchy," he said.

Khalid also said that he would remain Port Klang assemblyperson at the time being, and refused to divulge any details on his next move until after he has handed over his duties as MB.

But he said that if by any bizarre circumstance any party nominates him as MB, he would refuse as he is "happy to be free from the job".

He, however, refused to state if he will be joining PAS in the future.- mk


Palace's press statement

PKR to 'discuss & decide' Sultan's advice to submit more than one name for MB...

Pakatan Rakyat leaders welcomed news that the Sultan of Selangor had not called for snap polls as widely speculated. They also took heed of the Ruler's advice to propose more than two names for the post of Chief Minister or Mentri Besar.

"We will discuss and decide," PKR vice president Tian Chua told Malaysia Chronicle.

At an audience with outgoing MB Khalid Ibrahim, the Sultan agreed to accept the latter's resignation after he lost the majority support of the assemblymen in the state.
However the Ruler has asked Khalid to stay on as MB until a new leader is appointed.

Wan Azizah undeniable majority

Pending the appointment of the new MB, Khalid will continue with his duties.

Pakatan has named PKR president Wan Azizah for the post, a move that many believe the Sultan might be hesitant about due to conservative sentiments among the Muslim community.

Some also speculate that Umno may have influenced the Sultan into rejecting Wan Azizah, who is the wife of the ruling party's arch enemy, Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim.

Under the Selangor constitution, whoever holds the support of the majority of the state representatives in the assembly is eligible to form and lead the government.

Azizah has 43 reps on her side, with PAS deputy president Mat Sabu today clarifying that his party would not be withdrawing their support for her.

Azmin Ali, the PKR deputy president, is in line to be MB and rumors have swirled, so is Dr Ahmad Idris, the PKR assemblyman for Ijok.

The Palace is expected to grant an audience to the Pakatan leaders soon.  - Malaysia Chronicle

Laura Bushney - Dia (pramugara) sedang mengurut kaki saya...

Dakwaan 'Serangan Seksual' di dalam MH20...

Warganegara Australia Laura Bushney, akhirnya mendedahkan kepada umum pengalaman diserang secara seksual oleh seorang ketua pramugara Malaysia Airlines (MAS).

Dalam rancangan temubual "Sunday Night" yang disiarkan saluran televisyen Australia Channel Seven hari ini, Bushney berkata ketua pramugara itu "mengurut kakinya" kononnya untuk "menenangkan beliau".

Menurut Yahoo! Australia Bushney berkata beliau tidak mampu bertindak balas kerana terlalu takut ketika insiden berlaku dalam penerbangan MAS MH20 dari Kuala Lumpur ke Paris 4 Ogos lalu.

"Saya hanya terus bertanya kenapa saya tidak menjerit? Kenapa saya tak hentikannya (perbuatan itu)? Saya seorang yang kuat kerana saya boleh berbuat demikian. Saya tahu saya boleh," kata beliau dipetik dari temubual itu.

Rakaman audio insiden itu yang dibuat menerusi telefon bimbit turut didedahkan dan Bushney didengari membisik "Dia (pramugara) sedang mengurut kaki saya... Saya sangat takut, saya kena turun dari kapal terbang ini."

Menurut laporan itu, Bushney berkata pramugara itu meletakkan tangan di kakinya kemudiannya menggerakkan jarinya ke arah pusat wanita itu tetapi ditolak.

Bushney dilapor mengadu kepada polis di Lapangan Terbang Charles De Gaulle selepas mendarat di Paris dan pramugara itu dikatakan telah membuat pengakuan.

Ia menambah, MAS mengesahkan seorang penumpang membuat dakwaan itu terhadap seorang kru penerbangannya.

“Kakitangan syarikat yang dipersoal itu sudah ditahan dan disiasat oleh polis Perancis,” MAS dipetik sebagai berkata.

Dilaporkan MAS juga berkata mereka meletakkan piawai tertinggi berhubung tingkah laku anak kapalnya dan memandang serius dakwaan itu. - mk

captured audio and video recordings of the alleged assault and the later confrontation with her alleged attacker
Australian woman records 'sex assault' on Malaysia Airlines flight...

An Australian woman has revealed recordings of her alleged sexual assault at the hands of the chief steward on a Malaysia Airlines flight.

Three hours into the half-full flight to Paris, Laura Bushney claims Mohd Rosli Bin Ab Karim sat beside her and allegedly began massaging her legs under the guise of "comforting her".

In an interview with Sunday Night, the 26-year-old also claims he later put his hand down her pants.

She said she was terrified when the 54-year-old steward allegedly began touching her, but was "frozen in panic".

"I just keep saying why didn’t I scream, why didn’t I shout? Why didn’t I stop it? I am a strong person because I can do that, I know I can," Ms Bushney said.

"When I was in the moment I couldn’t. I felt so scared, so petrified."

However, Ms Bushney recorded the alleged incident on the mobile phone wrapped in a scarf next to her pillow.

video

Mr Rosli, who is married with three children, has since made admissions to police.

In the recording she can be heard whispering what Mr Rosli was doing to her.

"He's massaging my legs," she can be heard saying.

"I'm so scared, I just want to get off this plane."

She was seated in row 81, which was vacant, except for a man seated six seats away on the far side of the plane.

"He then started pushing his hand down, moving his hand down towards my belly button and I pushed his hand away," she said.

"I thought my pushing him away that I was telling him I didn’t want that to happen but I didn’t want to say it, I was just scared."

It was after she asked the steward to get her something to drink that she alerted the passenger in front of her.

The passenger, Canadian Sophie Lachance, insisted Ms Bushney report what happened, the flight crew sat her down with the steward again.

"Somebody touched my arm … and I remember I woke up and I saw her face full of tears and she was sobbing really, really strong," Ms Lachance said.

"She told me that this man did something to her."


Canadian passenger Sophie Lachance

She also filmed this confrontation, in which Mr Rosli can be seen pleading with her and saying his "intentions were good".

"You've got a wife at home and you're putting your hands down my pants, why would you do that? That's rape."

In addition to being in charge of the cabin crew, Mr Rosli is a powerful trade union figure fighting for the rights of flight stewards.

"I remember the first time we ask for his name, the crew member wouldn’t give us his name because this man was his manager, and that’s when I realized he had power," Ms Lachance said.

Ms Bushney made a formal complaint to police after touchdown at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, saying she had told crew at the beginning of the flight of her apprehension of flying with the airline in the wake of the two recent disasters.

She claims, Mr Rosli had taken advantage of her vulnerability.

Malaysia Airlines has responded with a public statement but has not contacted Ms Bushney or offered any counseling or compensation.

"Malaysia Airlines can confirm that following allegations by a passenger travelling on flight MH20 from Kuala Lumpur to Paris on 4th August 2014 of inappropriate sexual behaviour by a member of the cabin crew, the member of staff in question has been detained for questioning by the French police."

"Malaysia Airlines expects and accepts nothing short of the highest standards of conduct from its crew and takes any such allegations very seriously." - au.news.yahoo.com/sunday night


MAS crew member didn't admit to sexual assault...

The National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia (Nufam) today said there has been no admission of guilt by the Malaysia Airlines cabin crew member who had allegedly sexually assaulted a passenger.

Stressing that such media reports were untrue, the union also said that trial through the media “should be avoided at all costs”.

“Unsupported allegations are extremely painful for the family of the crew member and such allegations are also affecting the morale of other MAS crew members,” it said in a statement today.

As such, the union called on the authorities concerned to quickly carry out a thorough investigation into the matter and provide details to the public.

“The complaint should be expeditiously completed so that the truth will prevail.”

The union said this was especially necessary since the alleged victim had released a video of the incident and had made statements to the media even before the complaint has been fully investigated.

Australian citizen Laura Bushney went public about her alleged sexual assault ordeal in an interview with Sunday Night aired on Australia's Channel Seven yesterday.

Bushney claimed the chief steward had massaged her legs under the guise of "comforting her".
      
According to Yahoo! Australia, Bushney said she could not react as she was terrified when the incident occurred on board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH20 from Kuala Lumpur to Paris on Aug 4.

An audio recording, via mobile phone, of the incident was also released where Bushney was heard sobbing as she murmured: "He's massaging my legs... I'm so scared, I just want to get off this plane."

Nufam, meanwhile, said that the crew member concerned had periodically visited the passenger concerned to calm her down and assured her that all would be well on the flight.

“There were definitely no inappropriate acts on his part,” it said.
MAS had confirmed that the sexual assault allegation was made by the passenger against the cabin crew member.

The incident comes amid heightened scrutiny of MAS after the airline lost two of its aircraft this year, one being shot down over Ukraine and the whereabouts of the other still a mystery.- mk


Russia claims MH17 crash investigation stalled

Photo: Almost 200 Malaysia Airlines (MAS) crew members have resigned notably after the double airline tragedies involving MH17 and MH370.

Malaysia Airlines System Employees Union (Maseu) secretary-general Abdul Malek Ariff said they were down to only about 3,000 cabin crew members currently.

“Some are now afraid to fly. There is nothing we can do about this. They have developed some kind of fear and we hope that over time, they will be back to normal,” he said.

'Paparan logo' Menara Umno tak 'senget'...

Jun lalu, tiang penambat kilat jatuh dari tingkat 21 Menara Umno di Pulau Pinang dalam satu kejadian ribut, mengakibatkan dua orang terbunuh.

Salah seorang mangsa ialah penjaja Lim Chin Aik, 44, yang kebetulan melalui Jalan Macalister pada hari kejadian tersebut pada 13 Jun. Sehingga hari ini, mayatnya yang dihempap struktur tersebut tidak pernah ditemui.

Semalam, 'signage' (Paparan logo) di bumbung Menara Umno yang kelihatan senget 15 darjah, tersebar di media sosial, telah menimbulkan sedikit kebimbangan di kalangan orang ramai.

Pengguna facebook memberi amaran supaya orang ramai menjauhi Jalan Macalister di mana bangunan itu terletak kerana struktur tersebut kelihatan senget.

Bagaimanapun, Pengarah Bangunan, Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang (MPPP), Yew Tung Seang menafikan perkara itu.

Ketika ditanya hari ini, Yew berkata jabatannya telah segera menghantar pegawainya untuk memeriksa bangunan.

"Kami pergi untuk memeriksa sebaik sahaja kita mendengar khabar angin dan kebimbangan rakyat, terutama selepas gambar dilihat beredar di Facebook," Yew kepada Malaysiakini.

"MPPP menghantar pegawai kami ke tempat itu petang semalam untuk siasatan lanjut," katanya.

Yew berkata MPPP mendapati rangka struktur bumbung bahagian atas itu utuh dan tidak ada tanda-tanda ianya senget.

Beliau menambah bahawa gambar yang diedar secara meluas di laman sosial itu diambil dari sudut yang menunjukkan seolah-olah struktur itu condong tetapi ia memang direka sebegitu.

"Sudut Ini akan memberikan kesan visual yang mengelirukan jika dilihat dari sudut tertentu," kata Yew.

Beliau menggesa orang ramai supaya memeriksa atau membuat aduan kepada MPPP terlebih dahulu sebelum mengedar gambar tersebut di laman sosial, sehingga menimbul rasa panik.- mk



Menara Umno's 'tilting' sign stirs panic in Penang...

Last June, the lightning arrestor that fell from the 21-storey Menara Umno in Penang killed two persons during a freak storm.

One of the victims, hawker Lim Chin Aik, 44, who was passing by Jalan Macalister that fateful day on June 13 and whose body was never found, was caught under the massive structure as it crashed down to the road.

Yesterday, photos of Menara Umno's roof top signage that appears to be tilting 15 degrees made its rounds on the social media, causing slight panic among Penangites on the island.

Facebook users are warning others to keep away from Jalan Macalister where the building is situated as the structure appears to be in danger of collapsing.

However, the Penang Municipal Council (MPPP) building director Yew Tung Seang denied that the possibility.

Asked today, Yew said his department has immediately sent its officers to check on the building.

"We went to check as soon as we heard the rumours and concerns of the people, especially after photos were seen circulating on Facebook," Yew told Malaysiakini.

"We are not taking any chances, MPPP sent our officers to the site yesterday afternoon for further investigation," he added.

Yew said the MPPP found the roof top framed structure intact and there is no sign of tilting.

He added that the photo which has gone viral was taken from an angle which showed as if the structure is slanted but it was designed that way on purpose.

"That angle  will give a misleading visual effect if looked from a particular angle," Yew said.

He urged the public to check or lodge complaints with the MPPP first before circulating such photos on the social media, causing panic.

"We would immediately act when we receive such complaints, we will check the building and if there were dangers, we would immediately inform and caution the public," he added.

Menara Umno is also home to Penang Umno which often holds its party meetings on the sixth floor.

In May, the body of 21 year old law student Tieu Hooi Theng was found on the ground floor of Menara Umno.

She was believed to have fallen from the top of the building which also houses a college, and the victim was reportedly about to sit for her exam the day she was found dead.- mk

Australian woman in alleged MAS sexual assault goes on tell-all interview...

An Australian woman, who claimed that she was sexually assaulted by a Malaysia Airlines steward on a flight to Paris in early August, boldly went on a TV show in a tell-all interview to recount the alleged attack.

In a recorded interview with Channel Seven's talkshow, Sunday Night to be aired today (approximately 6.45pm Malaysian time) Laura Bushney, 26 claimed the steward allegedly came and sat down next to her three hours into the flight and began assaulting her under the guise of comforting.

“He's massaging my legs; I'm so scared I just want to get off this plane," she said during the interview.

“"I just keep saying why didn’t I scream, why didn’t I shout? Why didn’t I stop it? I am a strong person because I can do that, I know I can," said Bushney, who claimed she froze in panic to do anything, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Bushney, who was travelling by herself, recorded the incident on her iPhone hidden under a blanket on her lap. She claimed that the steward placed his hands under the blanket and then down her pants.

She reportedly also recorded a face-to-face altercation with the steward after the incident.

The steward, a married man with three children, was detained by police when the plane touched down at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport in the August 4, 2014 incident.

Understandably, there has been criticism on Channel Seven for its insensitivity on the Bushney interview, while Malaysians are in mourning over the flight MH17 tragedy which claimed the lives of 298 people – 43 were Malaysians.

Stephanie Yu, a Malaysian based in Hong Kong, who found out about the interview had reservations about the claims made by Bushney.

In an email to Astro AWANI, Yu said she was shocked that the network decided to go public about the exclusive interview with Bushney as Malaysia was still grieving for the fallen victims of flight MH17.

"I watched the preview video and something didn't seem right about the girl and her story. That's when I decided to do some investigating and I found her old Instagram account. I was really disgusted and at the same time angry. “

“It's clear that even if the MAS steward did do something inappropriate, I bet she led him to do it and only started crying afterwards. She is obviously doing this for personal fame or money or some ungodly reason. I think as Malaysians we have been through enough this year,” said Yu, a Malaysian citizen currently residing in Hong Kong.

“We don't deserve this. MAS don’t deserve this. People need to see the type of person this victim really is and then decide for themselves whether she is telling the truth or it's just a bunch of lies. That's why I decided to get in touch with the media,” she added.

A source from MAS when contacted said that the airline will 'remain neutral' and  'can’t comment on the ongoing case." - astroawani

MH70 ke Tokyo diarah patah balik...

Isu keselamatan: Pesawat MAS patah balik...

Sebuah pesawat Malaysia Airlines penerbangan MH70 yang dalam perjalanan ke Tokyo terpaksa berpatah balik ke Kuala Lumpur pagi ini disebabkan satu masalah keselamatan yang ditemui semasa dalam penerbangan.

Perkara itu diumumkan oleh juruterbang kira-kira 50 minit selepas perlepasan, kata seorang penumpang pesawat tersebut ketika dihubungi Malaysiakini.

Pesawat itu yang menuju ke lapangan terbang Narita, Tokyo itu berlepas dari Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur pada jam 10.50.

Selepas mendarat, penumpang diberitahu bahawa mereka akan berlepas ke Tokyo pada jam 1.15 petang dengan menggunakan pesawat lain.

“Skrin radar (paparan laluan penerbangan di tempat duduk penumpang) menunjukkan pesawat itu membelok ke kiri, lama sebelum pengumuman tersebut.

“Saya pada mulanya keliru, tetapi ia semakin jelas apabila mereka membuat pengumuman,” kata penumpang tersebut, Victor Tan.

Laman web MAS menunjukkan bahawa penerbangan MH70 “dijadualkan semula” dan dijangka tiba di Tokyo pada jam 9.25 malam.

Laman menjejak pesawat Flightradar24 menunjukkan MH70 hanya membuat pusingan di kawasan perlepasan sebelum berpatah balik.

Malaysiakini masih menunggu maklum balas syarikat penerbangan tersebut. - mk


MAS flight turns back due to 'safety issues'...

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH70, en route to Tokyo, made a turn back to Kuala Lumpur following alleged “safety issues” found mid-flight.

This was announced by the pilot about 50 minute into the fight, a passenger onboard the plane told Malaysiakini.

The plane had departed the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at 10.50am for Narita airport at 10.50am.

After touching down, passengers were then informed that they will be leaving for Tokyo at 1.15pm on a different plane.

“The radar screen (flight route display on the passenger’s seat-back screen) showed that the plane was curving to the left long before the announcement.

“I was initially confused, but it made more sense when they made the announcement,” passenger Victor Tan said.

MAS’ website states that Flight MH70 has been “retimed” and is due to arrive in Tokyo at 9.25pm.

Flight tracker website Flightradar24 shows that MH70 had merely circled around its departure area before turning back.

Malaysiakini has contacted the airline and is awaiting its response. The airline could not be reached via its general customer service line.

‘No excuse’

Meanwhile, Tan said that it was “unacceptable” that MAS did not perform its “due diligence” prior to departure.

“I understand that we have to support our national airline in the wake of MH370 and MH17. Both were terrible tragedies, but that doesn't give MAS an excuse to slack off and play their part.

“It is incidents like these that destroy our perception of the airline,” he said


Last April, panic sparked aboard a Bangalore-bound MAS flight when it made an emergency turn back a month after the disappearance of Flight MH370.

Aviation experts, however, say that turn backs due to safety issues are not as uncommon as publicly-perceived.

MH370 disappeared en route Beijing in March while MH17 was downed while flying above east Ukraine separatist-held area in July.

The search for MH370 is ongoing, while the remains of Malaysian victims of MH17 arrived in Malaysia yesterday on what was declared as the National Day of Mourning.- mk
