SPR gagal batal saman Dr.Streram...
Pegawai Pilihan Raya Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Rantau, Amino Agos Suyub dan Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) gagal membatalkan saman yang dikemukakan calon Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Dr S.Streram berhubung salah laku ketika proses penamaan calon hingga menyebabkan beliau tidak dapat bertanding pada Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14.
Ini berikutan keputusan Pesuruhjaya Kehakiman Mahkamah Tinggi Darryl Goon Siew Chye yang menolak permohonan Amino Agos dan SPR selaku defendan pertama dan kedua untuk membatalkan saman oleh Dr Streram.
Peguam Mohamed Haniff Khatri Abdulla yang mewakili Dr Streram memberitahu pemberita selepas prosiding di dalam kamar hakim itu bahawa mahkamah membuat keputusan tersebut atas alasan kes berkenaan adalah berbeza dengan petisyen pilihan raya yang telah difailkan sebelum ini.
“Alasan lain ialah berhubung dengan ‘klausa pengecualian’ berhubung pegawai-pegawai SPR tidak boleh secara automatik menidakkan kuasa mahkamah untuk mendengar kes misfeasance,” kata peguam itu.
Katanya mahkamah memutuskan bahawa tindakan itu (saman) bukanlah tergolong sebagai satu tindakan yang tidak boleh berjaya semasa perbicaraan dan mahkamah menetapkan 2 Nov untuk pengurusan kes lanjut serta memerintahkan defendan memfailkan penyataan pembelaan sebelum atau pada tarikh itu.
Dr Streram, 63, seorang doktor bius dan anggota PKR memfailkan saman berkenaan pada 7 Mei lepas menerusi Tetuan Haniff Khatri dengan menamakan Amino Agos dan SPR yang diwakili peguam K. Sathya sebagai defendan pertama dan kedua.
Dalam pernyataan tuntutannya, Dr Streram mendakwa bahawa defendan gagal menunaikan tanggungjawab di bawah Akta Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya 1958, yang mengakibatkan dirinya tidak dapat bertanding di kerusi DUN Rantau selepas memperoleh watikah pelantikan daripada partinya dan susulan itu, Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan dari Barisan Nasional memenangi kerusi DUN itu tanpa bertanding.
Dalam tuntutannya juga beliau berkata telah membayar deposit sebanyak RM5,000 untuk pendaftaran pencalonannya dan RM3,000 lagi untuk deposit bahan kempen pada 25 April.
Beliau juga mendakwa bahawa pihak SPR tidak memaklumkan kepadanya bahawa pas SPR diperlukan untuk tujuan memasuki pusat penamaan calon.
Selain itu, Streram juga membuat dua laporan polis terhadap pegawai pengurus pilihan raya itu dan SPR mengikut Seksyen 124B dan 124C Kanun Keseksaan kerana mengganggu proses demokrasi berparlimen dengan tidak membenarkannya menjadi calon. - mt

MACC Shocked At Lim’s Acquittal, But Never Shocked At Shahrizat’s Cowgate Scandal Acquittal...
Surprisingly, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) says it is “shocked” over the acquittal of Mr. Lim and Ms Phang. In a statement, the MACC claims – “The MACC would like to stress that the decision was made by the Attorney General’s office and not the MACC.” Lim’s counsel Ramkarpal Singh said he was “shocked” by the MACC’s shock over Lim’s acquittal.
Joining the bandwagon is Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. Expressing his shock, probably made with tongue-in-cheek, Mahathir said – “They (MACC) have a right to be shocked. If they want to be shocked, they can be shocked. I am also shocked. If the court makes a decision which to me is wrong, I also never comment on it.”
So, what is so special about Lim’s acquittal that everyone appears to be shocked? The joint trial of Lim Guan Eng and Phang Li Koon was in connection to the conversion of land from agriculture to residential status, and the purchase of a plot of land and a bungalow at below market value. Every Tom, Dick and hamsters knew there was no case from the beginning.
Those who think otherwise have pointed out to the similarities between Lim’s bungalow and former Selangor Chief Minister Khir Toyo’s bungalow scandal. Mr. Toyo had failed to convince judges that his bungalow was purchased based on “willing buyer-willing-seller” basis and was sentenced for 12 months behind bars. Therefore, Mr. Lim should be sent to jail too, they argued.
However, both bungalow scandals are different from the beginning. You can go to this article written 2 years ago and read why both aren’t the same. MACC obviously has shot itself in the foot after expressing its’ shock over Lim’s acquittal. Why should it be so shocked unless MACC has been playing the roles of a judge, jury and executioner under the previous Barisan Nasional government?
Lim’s lawyer Ramkarpal has offered his reason of being shocked over MACC’s shock. According to Ramkarpal, MACC should not be shocked because the director of its own legal and prosecution division, Mohd Masri Daud, was the one who had informed the court that he was withdrawing the charges. However, MACC claims later that Masri is not an MACC officer.
Mr. Masri, acting as the deputy public prosecutor, asked the court to consider a discharge not amounting to acquittal for the two. However, Judge Hadhariah Syed Ismail decided to discharge and acquit both Lim and Phang, after agreeing with defence counsel that it was not right for the public prosecutor to leave a cloud hanging over their heads as they might be charged again in the future.
Judge Hadhariah justified that so far the prosecution had called 25 witnesses to testify in the trial last March and now in September the prosecution had asked the case to be discharged not amounting to an acquittal (DNAA). She said – “Six months later, the prosecution may call for other witnesses. There is no such thing especially in public interest case.”
Ramkarpal, on the other hand, said – “I am shocked that the MACC is shocked over the decision. They (MACC) obviously have knowledge and been informed that the charges will be withdrawn, as the entire process involves the MACC. Is the MACC saying that the AG (Attorney General) did not consult them? This is a serious allegation.”
So, what the hell is happening within MACC? It appears there’re different warlords or little Napoleons within the anti-corruption agency. Either there’re pro-UMNO or pro-Najib corrupt officers within MACC trying to sabotage the new government, or the entire MACC is playing politics – hedging its bet over the possibility of a return of ex-premier Najib or UMNO to the federal government.
Worse still, there could be MACC warlords who are aligned to certain component party of the Pakatan Harapan coalition tasked to ensure the downfall of Lim Guan Eng, the Secretary-General of the Democratic Action Party (DAP). If Lim is found guilty, he will most certainly lose his Finance Minister post, allowing another component party to snatch and claim the important portfolio.
Amazingly, the perception is Lim Guan Eng must go through the trial, even if there isn’t sufficient and compelling evidence, and be found guilty. And he must be sent to prison to prove that the new Pakatan Harapan government practices accountability. He cannot be acquitted because to do so would be seen as a cover-up, no matter how innocence he is.
Lim Guan Eng must go through a trial, be found guilty and sent to prison because he’s the leader of Chinese-based DAP. Not only will DAP lose its jewel Finance Minister post, the imprisonment of Lim will also weaken the incredible strong party. Certain parties – regardless whether friends or foes – will benefit greatly with a weaker DAP in the coalition government.
It’s both flabbergasted and entertaining that MACC found it shocking that Lim Guan Eng’s RM2.8 million bungalow scandal was acquitted but didn’t find it shocking when the husband of former UMNO Wanita Chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil was acquitted of two charges of criminal breach of trust involving RM49.7 million after the prosecution informed the court that it did not wish to pursue the matter.
Why MACC is extremely offended that the prosecutor did not wish to pursue Lim’s case but the same MACC wasn’t offended at all that the prosecutor did not wish to pursue Shahrizat’s case in 2015? In fact, the infamous Cowgate scandal had much stronger evidence of convicting Shahrizat’s husband (Mohamad Salleh Ismail) and throw him in jail.
In the Cowgate scandal, Shahrizat and her family members practically had siphoned RM250 million of taxpayers money meant for National Feedlot Corporation (NFC). Her husband, Mohamad Salleh Ismail, and their children Wan Shahinur Izran, Wan Izzana Fatimah Zabedah and Wan Shahinur Izmir, were made directors at NFC, enriching themselves with jaw-dropping salaries.
As NFCorp Chairman, Shahrizat’s husband Mohammad Salleh Ismail paid himself RM100,000 monthly salary, while 31-year-old son Izmir was paid RM45,000 monthly as executive director. Another son Wan Shahinur Izran, 27, commanded RM35,000 a month as CEO and 25-year-old daughter Wan Izzanah Fatimah was paid RM35,000 as a director. The family was paid a total sum of RM215,000 every month.
NFCorp admitted that nearly RM600,000 of its funds was used to pay for credit card expenses, mostly accumulated by the despicable family. Shahrizat’s husband had also admitted to the purchase of two luxury condominiums in Bangsar costing RM6.9 million each. They had also purchased a RM500,000 Mercedes Benz CLS 350 CGI, two plots of land and paid holiday packages.
Heck, Shahrizat had even sent most of the beef produced by NFC to three luxury restaurants – Meatworks, Senor Santos and Brawns Steakhouse – owned by her family in Singapore. The crooks had also purchased two condominiums at Marina Bay Financial Center suites costing RM34.6 million. In total, Shahrizat’s family had bought RM62 million worth of condos.
When compared to Shahrizat’s RM250 million Cowgate scandal, why did MACC cherry-pick and chooses to be bloody shocked at Lim’s RM2.8 million bungalow instead? There’s nothing to be shocked. Lim Guan Eng didn’t acquit himself. MACC’s job is to investigate and Attorney General Chamber’s job is to prosecute. After calling 25 witnesses and still without strong evidence, it’s only natural to drop the case. - ft
