Mahathir panggil Chegubard "kucing kurap"...

Dr M: 'You' pun boleh soal saya, Najib...

Tun Mahathir Mohamad nampaknya benar-benar mahu bersemuka dengan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak di pentas debat.

Semalam, dalam pertemuannya tertutupnya dengan sekumpulan NGO, beliau sekali lagi menyuarakan hasrat itu.

Malah, katanya, bukan sekadar soalan berkaitan kontroversi 1MDB, beliau juga bersedia menjawab serangan balas terhadap pentadbiran 22 tahunnya sebelum ini.


 "Saya nak minta Datuk Seri Najib dengan saya duduk atas pentas, depan televisyen. Najib boleh soal saya tentang apa saya buat dulu, kononnya saya hilangkan duit, apa semua, lesapkan duit.

"Dia boleh tanya dan saya boleh tanya dia. Sama-samalah.

"Tapi you (Najib) kena jawab sama. Sama-sama kita duduk atas pentas, semua kamera televisyen duduk di depan dan disiarkan di seluruh negara," kata Dr Mahathir dalam sebuah rakaman video ketika pertemuan itu diadakan semalam.

Enggan layan 'kucing kurap' PKR

Dr Mahathir berkata demikian sebagai mengulas pertanyaan peserta yang membangkitkan soalan sama ada beliau bersedia menerima undangan sebuah lagi program dialog 'Nothing2Hide' anjuran Pengerusi Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) Badrul Hisham Shaharin atau Chegubard.

Walaupun sedia berdebat, Mahathir bagaimanapun keberatan terlibat dengan aktivis yang juga seorang bekas pemimpin pusat PKR itu.

"Itu kucing kurap daripada PKR... bagi tahu kepada dia, saya tak jawab soalan kucing kurap," katanya lagi yang mendapat sorakan dan tepukan daripada peserta.

Sementara itu, seorang peserta memberitahu Malaysiakini, pertemuan yang bermula kira-kira jam 4.30 dan berakhir pada jam 6 petang itu hanya berkisar mengenai Najib dan isu 1MDB.

"Macam-macam (yang diperkatakan) mengenai Najib Razak terutamanya isu 1MDB.

"Banyak kumpulan yang datang nak tahu benda yang sama daripada Tun," kata peserta tersebut.

Semalam, pertemuan tertutup kira-kira 50 peserta daripada beberapa NGO itu diadakan di Yayasan Kepimpinan Perdana, Putrajaya.

Pertemuan semalam dilihat antara siri gerak kerja Mahathir untuk terus menyerang pentadbiran Najib dan mendesak beliau meletakkan jawatan, terutamanya berkaitan isu 1MDB.- mk

Dr M takut, maki saya kucing kurap...

Pengerusi Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) Badrul Hisham Shaharin berkata Tun Mahathir Mohamad menggelarnya “kucing kurap” kerana takut dengan kritikan pada bekas perdana menteri itu.

Badrul atau lebih dikenali sebagai Chegubard berkata kenyataan Mahathir di depan sekumpulan “kaki sorak dan ampu”semalam hanya memalukan dirinya sendiri.

“Semua orang tahu semalam Tun M telah buat perjumpaan dengan NGO seramai 50 orang yang memang kaki sorak, kaki ampu dan dah kenyang dengan dia (Mahathir).

“Dia hina saya adakah saya rasa terhina. Saya tidak rasa terhina.

“Sebagai negarawan umur 90 tahun dia panik, dia tertekan dengan kempen kami. Dia terpaksa gunakan bahasa kesat panggil orang kucing kurap depan media, depan orang ramai.

“Maknanya Dr Mahathir menghina diri dia dan memalukan diri dia sendiri,” kata anggota PKR yang digantung keahlian itu dalam sidang media di Petaling Jaya.

Mahathir semalam menggelar Badrul kucing kurap apabila mengulas pertanyaan peserta yang membangkitkan soalan sama ada beliau bersedia menerima undangan sebuah lagi program dialog 'Nothing2Hide' anjuran SAMM.

Sementara itu, Badrul turut mengumumkan penerbitan sebuah buku bertajuk “Wajah Sebenar Mahathir” yang memuatkan dakwaan salah laku Mahathir selama 22 tahun menjadi perdana menteri.

Badrul berkata buku itu dicetak sebanyak 40,000 salinan dan telah diedarkan sebanyak 10,000 naskah.

Katanya, buku itu akan diedarkan ke seluruh Malaysia, terutamanya kepada penjawat awam.

Jelasnya, penerbitan buku itu sebahagian dari kempen “Sudahlah Mahathir” yang dilakukan sejak dua minggu lalu.

Badrul ketika ditanya tujuan sebenar menyerang Mahathir ketika orang ramai sedang mengkritik Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak, menjawab:

“Sebab Najib sudah ramai orang serang. (Saya hendak) bagi tahu rakyat Malaysia, Mahathir bukan hero,” katanya. - mk


Grill me as cameras roll, Dr M dares Najib...

Dr Mahathir Mohamad wants Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to step into the ring for a face-to-face bout instead of throwing blind punches on Twitter and his blog.

During a closed-door meeting with several NGOs yesterday, the former premier said he was prepared to be grilled by Najib on his 22-year tenure.


"I want to ask Najib to be with me on a stage, in front of cameras.
"Najib can ask me about what I’ve done in the past, that apparently I, too, had lost millions of ringgit.


"He can ask me questions and vice versa.


"But he needs to answer, too, together on a stage, in front of television cameras which will be televised throughout the country," he said.


Najib has repeatedly refused to debate Mahathir while some of his ministers like Nazri Abdul Aziz have also deemed it unnecessary.


'I won't entertain PKR kucing kurap'
 

Asked if he would accept the invitation of Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) founder Badrul Hisham Shaharin (Chegubard) for another "Nothing2Hide" dialogue session, Mahathir said he was not willing to entertain PKR's "kucing kurap (insignificant)".

Although he was ready to debate with Najib, Mahathir was reluctant to be involved with activists who were also former PKR central leaders.

"He (photo) is a kucing kurap from PKR. Tell him that I do not answer questions from kucing kurap," he said.


Malaysiakini has obtained a video-recording of the question and answer session regarding this topic.

A participant, who declined to be named, told Malaysiakini that the one and a half hour session mainly centred on Najib and 1MDB.


"Many groups want to know about the same issues from Mahathir," he said.


The meeting, conducted at the Perdana Leadership Foundation in Putrajaya yesterday, saw 50 participants from various NGOs. - mk


Dr M: 1MDB sembunyi di balik 'kerahsiaan'...

Bekas Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad membidas 1MDB yang didakwanya bersembunyi di sebalik "kerahsian kerajaan" untuk melindungi dirinya daripada kritikan beliau terhadap dana pelaburan yang bermasalah itu.

"Untuk semua kritikan saya, 1MDB hanya boleh kata semuanya salah. Tapi tak ada bukti yang diberikan. Jawapannya sentiasa mengenai kerahsiaan urusan kerajaan," katanya.

Beliau berkata, Lembaga Pelaburan Terengganu (TIA), pendahulu kepada 1MDB, enggan membenarkan telaga minyaknya digunakan sebagai cagaran untuk pinjamannya.

Menurutnya, kerajaan persekutuan menjadi penjamin bagi pinjaman RM5 bilion itu adalah kerana Terengganu menolaknya.

"Mengapa Terengganu menarik diri daripada cadangan awal kerajaan persekutuan supaya pengeluaran masa depan telaga minyaknya menjadi cagaran?

"Tidak ada kertas kabinet dibentangkan mengenai pinjaman 5 bilion itu. Keluarkan kertas itu untuk orang ramai lihat. Sudah tentu anda akan kata kertas kabinet adalah rahsia," tulis Mahathir dalam blognya hari ini.- mk



Mahathir likens 1MDB to APs sellers...

1MDB is akin to rent seekers who sell approved permits (APs), contracts and licences, former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad says.

In a new posting on his blog today, Mahathir argued that when 1MDB bought government land at 1/50th of the market price, the government lost a huge sum of money.

"When 1MDB sells the land, it is merely taking what should be government earnings from the sale. That process is no different from people who sell APs, contracts and licences. Is this how 1MDB expects to make money?

"Is 1MDB a strategic development company? What has it developed - nothing. Even TRX (Tun Razak Exchange) is all fence and nothing else."

Mahathir (photo) said this in response to 1MDB's insistence that even though it bought land cheaply from the government, Putrajaya still stood to benefit.

1MDB said this was because it is a government-owned company and whatever benefits it received go back to the government.

"It is important to note that 1MDB is ultimately 100 percent owned by the government of Malaysia.

"Accordingly, any transfer of land to 1MDB and any subsequent benefit in land value increase is ultimately 100 percent for the government of Malaysia," 1MDB said.

1MDB did not address the core issue

Mahathir also poured cold water on 1MDB's defence of its purchase of power assets, the licences for which are supposedly expiring and would be significantly cheaper after that period.

1MDB had said the near expiration only applied to two of the 13 power plants it had purchased.

However, Mahathir said the two were among the largest, adding that the company did not address the core issue of overpaying for the assets.

He added if the assets were indeed not overpriced, why was 1MDB facing trouble in selling them off.

"13 power plants bought. But the big ones in Malaysia can be bought for a song.

"But by paying RM18 billion, 1MDB overpaid at least by RM3 billion. Why?

"If they are good assets, why cannot they be listed?

"Why is it that when Tenaga and Malakoff were rumoured to buy 1MDB power plants, their shares all plunged?" Mahathir asked.- mk


Putrajaya's 'game of hudud' angers PAS MP...

Mahfuz Omar (PAS-Pokok Sena) has voiced dissatisfaction with the government dawdling on revealing its stance on the Kelantan hudud issue.

He said this during an exchange with Dewan Rakyat Speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia in parliament today, where he insinuated that the government is not supportive of PAS' private member's bill that would enable the implementation of hudud in the state.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Shahidan Kassim interjected to say this is not the government's stance.

However, when pressed to reveal its position, Shahidan replied that minister in charge of Islamic affairs Jamil Khir Baharom would respond.

"Answer it today! Today is the last day of the sitting. You want to wait until which sitting? This is a game," Mahfuz protested, before Pandikar ordered the duo to sit down.

Earlier, he asked the speaker why the bill moved by Abdul Hadi Awang (PAS-Marang) only appeared on the parliament’s order paper yesterday, which is the second last day of the current sitting.

He also asked why the bill is the last on a list of 26 motions, although Hadi had proposed it months ago.

"I would like to know whether it would be given way, because the minister in prime minister’s department from Jerai (Jamil Khir) had promised in this parliament to make room if we bring issues pertaining to amendments to Act 355 (Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965,” he said.

Explanation given in office

Pandikar (photo) replied that he had already explained this to him, Hadi, and Takiyuddin Hassan (PAS-Kota Bahru) in his office before, and there is no need repeat his reasons.

He also accused Mahfuz of trying to drag him into a political agenda by raising the question in the sitting, but obliged with a response anyway.

He said the bill was added to the order paper because it was found to meet the necessary criteria for a private member’s bill, but the Standing Orders require that government bills be debated first.

“If a private member’s bill such as this hudud motion is well-received by the government, the government itself would table the motion, and thus Standing Order 15 does not apply and the motion can be debated,” the speaker said.

Mahfuz then ‘thanked’ Pandikar for clarifying that the government is not prepared to make way for the bill to be debated, to which Pandikar retorted that those are not his words and is only Mahfuz’s interpretation.

He also reminded Mahfuz that the Standing Orders forbid members from involving the speaker in their speeches, and again accused Mahfuz of dragging him into a political agenda.

Not seeking Agong's consent

At the parliament lobby later, Mahfuz slammed the government for their hypocrisy by breaking its promise to expand the syariah court’s jurisdiction.

He also rebutted Tourism and Culture Minister Nazri Abdul Aziz Mohamed's (photo) statement that Hadi had disrespected the Agong by not seeking his consent first before tabling the bill.

"MPs don't need to seek consent from the Agong before tabling a private member bill, thus he did not disrespect Agong," he told reporters.

On the contrary, he said it is Putrajaya that was kurang ajar (insolent) because it is them who should be seeking an audience with Agong to discuss PAS’ private member’s bill.

Previously Nazri had told Malaysiakini that bills related to religion needs consent from the Conference of Rulers before it is tabled in Parliament.

"How can we discuss a bill on hudud when the Agong has not even been briefed? That is kurang ajar," Nazri, who was former law minister and former minister in charge of parliamentary affairs, during an interview on June 13.

Meanwhile on Facebook, Wong Chen (PKR-Kelana Jaya) (photo) claimed that Mahfuz was trying to provoke his party’s conservative faction to respond, but to no avail.

“Mahfuz was baiting a reaction from the PAS ulama MPs. To everyone's surprise, none of the ulama group stood up to fight for Hadi Awang's bill.

“All the ulama MPs sheepishly continued to sit quietly including Nik Abduh Nik Aziz (PAS-Pasir Mas). So there you have it.

“Outside the Dewan the ulamas champion hudud as a holy calling, but in the Dewan, they can't be bothered to question a minister's arbitrary decision,” he said today. -
