Najib, Mahathir, dan Pak Lah antara dikaitkan kes rasuah, dedah WikiLeaks...

Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak, dua mentornya dan beberapa bekas menteri tersenarai dalam arahan kerajaan Australia supaya media menutup mulut daripada melaporkan kes rasuah jutaan dolar melibatkan Malaysia, Indonesia, dan Vietnam, dedah laman web WikiLeaks hari ini.

Antaranya melibatkan kes anak syarikat Reserve Bank Australia, Securency and Note Printing Australia.

Pekerja syarikat terbabit didakwa menyogok pegawai asing di Malaysia, Indonesia dan Vietnam daripada tahun 1999 hingga 2004 untuk mendapatkan kontrak percetakan wang.

Selain Najib, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad dan bekas Menteri Kewangan Tun Daim Zainuddin antara ahli politik terkemuka dinamakan dalam injuksi itu.

Turut dinamakan bekas Menteri Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz dan bekas Menteri Luar Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar.



Turut dinamakan dalam injuksi itu adalah adik ipar Abdullah, yang dinamakan sebagai Noni.

WikiLeaks berjaya mendapatkan salinan arahan kebenaran injuksi demi menjaga hubungan baik Australia dengan negara antarabangsa.

Pengasas WikiLeaks, Julian Assange berkata arahan dibuat bagi mengelakkan prejudis terhadap kepentingan hubungan Komanwel dengan keselamatan negara.

"Arahan itu dianggap penting bagi mengelakkan risiko besar prasangka terhadap pentadbiran yang adil dan tidak boleh dihalang oleh cara lain yang difikirkan wajar," katanya.

Assange menyelar kerajaan Australia kerana memperoleh injuksi itu, dan menuduh mereka cuba menutup mulut dan mata rakyat Australia.

"Ini bukan soal kegagalan kerajaan Australia mendedahkan kes rasuah antarabangsa kepada umum.

"Menteri Luar Julie Bishop perlu jelaskan kenapa dia mengugut rakyat Australia dengan hukuman penjara dalam cubaannya menutup malu skandal rasuah melibatkan kerajaan," katanya.

Dakwaan rasuah timbul sejak tahun 2009, pada ketika itu mendorong Polis Persekutuan Australia dan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) memulakan siasatan berasingan.




Pada tahun 2010, SPRM menahan tiga individu yang terlibat dengan membekalkan wang kertas polimer RM5 ekoran wujud laporan Securency menyogok pegawai di Malaysia.

Individu terbabit termasuk seorang ahli perniagaan didakwa mengambil RM11.3 juta untuk mengikat kontrak daripada Bank Negara Malaysia dan memastikan kerajaan Malaysia memilih wang kertas polimer itu.

Abdullah, juga dikenali sebagai Pak Lah pada tahun 2011 menafikan dakwaan dua syarikat Australia cuba memberinya rasuah sebanyak RM100 juta untuk mendapatkan kontrak mata wang Malaysia semasa pentadbirannya sebagai perdana menteri.

Cubaan itu dipercayai berkait dengan perjanjian bekalan wang kertas polimer RM5 yang mula diedarkan pada tahun 2004.- tmi

An Australian court has purportedly banned reporting of proceedings pertaining to a “multi-million dollar” corruption case that would implicate the leaders of several countries, including “any current or former prime minister of Malaysia”.

The Supreme Court of Victoria's “unprecedented” suppression order, dated June 19, was leaked on the anti-secrecy group Wikileaks’ website yesterday.

The order applies only in Australia. It cites, as grounds for the order, the risk of prejudice to the persons named in the order, and that such reporting can be prejudicial to Australia’s national security.

“The purpose of these orders is to prevent damage to Australia's international relations that may be caused by the publication of material that may damage the reputations of specified individuals who are not the subject of charges in these proceedings,” the alleged court order reads.

Apart from the current and former prime ministers of Malaysia, other Malaysians named in the order are former prime minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s sister-in-law (named in the order as Puan Noni), former finance minister Daim Zainuddin (left), former international trade minister Rafidah Aziz, and former foreign affairs minister Syed Hamid Albar.

Several Indonesian and Vietnamese leaders were also named in the order, such as former Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyuno (who was still in power when the order was made), Vietnamese president Truong Tan San, and Vietnamese prime minister Nguyen Tan Dung.

Affidavit ordered sealed

The order also purportedly applies to Australia's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Gillian Bird’s affidavit to the court, which it says is to be sealed in an envelope until the court orders otherwise. Bird was the former Australian ambassador to Asean.

According to Wikileaks, the trial concerns allegations that several Securency and Note Printing Australia (NPA) agents had given millions in inducements to secure contracts to supply polymer banknotes to Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, and other countries.

Securency and NPA were both subsidiaries of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) until it sold its stake in Securency last year.

Previously in 2011, eight Securency and NPA employees were reportedly charged with bribing or conspiring to bribe foreign public officials in Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam in order to secure the contracts.

Following this, two Malaysians were also charged in Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam – former Bank Negara assistant governor Mohamad Daud Dol Moin (photo, centre) for allegedly receiving a RM100,000 inducement to award NPA a contract to print RM5 banknotes, and businessperson Abdul Kayum Syed Ahmad who was accused of facilitating the payment to Mohamad Daud.

However, it is not clear whether the Victoria court order deals with the same set of charges filed in 2011, or are on fresh graft charges against the executives of the two companies.

MIC kaitkan PAS dengan ustaz 'serbuk kari'...

Kira-kira 150 orang berhimpun di Dataran Brickfields pada jam 1 petang hari ini bagi mendesak supaya tindakan diambil terhadap seorang pendakwah bebas dikenali sebagai Shahul Hamid.

Naib Presiden MIC, Datuk M Saravanan yang hadir pada protes itu menuntut PAS menjelaskan sama ada Shahul adalah seorang anggota parti itu selepas beliau didakwa menghina agama Hindu dalam satu ceramahnya di Shah Alam, Februari lalu.

"Jika ia benar, PAS mesti mengambil tindakan terhadapnya," kata Saravanan (kiri) yang mendakwa "diberitahu" akan perkara itu.

Satu klip video ceramah Shahul Hamid memaparkan beliau menyeru umat Islam agar tidak membeli serbuk kari daripada pembekal "Hindu" seperti syarikat Alagappas dan Baba's tersebar secara meluas baru-baru ini.

"Jika anda pergi ke kilang Alagappas terdekat Permatang Pauh, akan ada patung (dewi) di pintu masuk dan lidah keluar.

"Mengapa lidah keluar? Kerana dewi mesti rasa semua serbuk kari sebelum mereka menjualnya," Shahul berkata demikian dalam video tersebut.

Shahul kemudian memuat naik satu rakaman video permohonan maafnya di Facebook dan menjelaskan bahawa kenyataan itu dibuatnya pada satu majlis tertutup.

Beliau juga tidak menyangka videonya itu akan disebar meluas dan menimbulkan kontroversi.

Sementara itu, Setiausaha Pemuda PAS, Mohd Nasaie Ismail sewaktu dihubungi menafikan yang pendakwah berusia 39 tahun itu merupakan anggota kepada sayap tersebut.

Namun, beliau mengenali Shahul kerana tahu bahawa Shahul adalah seorang daripada peserta program realiti bagi mencungkil bakat pendakwah, Mimbar Pencetus Ummah.

“Dalam rekod keahlian Pemuda PAS tiada rekod nama beliau.

"Kita (PAS) tak pernah kenal Ustaz Shahul Hamid, tapi mengetahui beliau menyertai program Pencetus Ummah,” katanya ketika dihubungi Malaysiakini.

Setiausaha Agung PAS, Datuk Mustafa Ali sewaktu dihubungi pula menjelaskan pihaknya memerlukan sedikit masa untuk memeriksa jika nama Shahul terdapat dalam daftar keahlian mereka.- mk

MIC ni pun satu, tak kan kalu seorang tu ustaz, berjanggut berjambang, semestinya orang PAS...

Hundreds protest ustaz's 'Hindu' curry powder jibe
Hundreds protest ustaz's 'Hindu' curry powder jibe...

Hundreds of people gathered in Brickfields today demanding action be taken against an Islamic preacher, Ustaz Shahul Hamid, for insulting Hinduism in a speech at a surau in Shah Alam in February this year. 

The protest, organised by MIC Youth and several other NGOs, also saw MIC vice-president M Saravanan (left) demand clarification on whether Shahul Hamid, a Penangite, is actually a PAS member.

"If it's true, PAS must take action against him," Saravanan said.

A video clip of Shahul Hamid's speech has gone viral, in which he is heard telling Muslims not to buy curry powder products from what he deemed as  “Hindu” companies, such as Alagappa's and Baba's.

"If you go to the Alagappa's factory near Permatang Pauh, you will a statue (goddess) at the entrance, and the tongue is out. Why is the tongue out? Because the goddess must taste all the curry powder before they sell it," Shahul Hamid says in the video recording.

He subsequently posted a short apology on his Facebook, saying that he made the remarks in a closed-door event and he did not anticipate anyone uploading the video.

'Action must be taken'

But Saravanan said action must be taken against Shahul Hamid and vowed that Indians will not forget about this matter after mere weeks, like how they did with Zulkifli Noordin, the former Perkasa deputy president, who was also captured on video insulting Hindus last year.

However, no action was taken against Zulkifli, who has also apologised for his remarks, and he was even subsequently named as BN candidate for the Shah Alam parliamentary seat in the previous general election.

Saravanan said a group will protest in front of Shahul Hamid's house in Penang if no action is taken within a week.

As of this afternoon, the organisers said more than 400 police reports had been lodged against Shahul Hamid for his insulting speech.

The crowd of about 150 people gathered at the fountain near Little India about 1.15pm and protested for over 40 minutes at the venue. 

Among the other prominent personalities who attended were MIC youth chief C Sivaraajh, and National Indian Action Team (NIAT) chairperson Thasleem Ibrahim.

Thasleem said that people like Shahul Hameed would not be making statement such as these if action was taken against Zulkifli Noordin for his remarks.

"I was the first one to make a police report against Zulkifli. I hope this time, action is taken," Thasleem said.

Thasleem said that even though he was Muslim by religion, he was still an Indian and would stand up for the community.

Meanwhile, Malaysian Indian Progressive Association (Mipas) also lodged a police report against Shahul at about 1.30 pm at the Sentul police station.

In its report, Mipas chief S Bharathidasan urged the police to investigate Shahul under the Sedition Act.

Meanwhile, MIC president G Palanivel also weighed in on the controversy with a statement today, saying that Shahul "should not" have criticised the Hindu religion.

"This is not his job. Everybody must respect each other's faith," Palanivel said, while asking Shahul to "apologise to everybody". - mk
