DOMESTIC VIOLENCE – REAL NEWS, BULLSHIT AND STORY TELLING

‘Or stupid claims of debunking of evidence which is the figment of the wildest imagination of pathological liars, when proceedings are still ongoing?

Or accusing their victims of going public to get them arrested when that may have already happened prior to victims going public?

In many cases, pathological liars despite having been caught several times perjuring and their “versions debunked” cannot stop as they are riding a tiger!’

 

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE – REAL NEWS, BULLSHIT AND STORY TELLING

Do Malaysians know that over 902 cases of domestic violence had been recorded from January to April this year?

These are national figures!

The World Health Organization estimated that globally, 1 in 3 women have been subjected to violence in the form of either physical and/or sexual by a partner or a non-partner in their lifetime.

If that too is not shocking and does not send a shiver or two down your spine, I wonder what will.

What-ever ones beef this is indeed a very traumatic and chilling number for us all.

So please spare me and others in the field the bull-shit as we have always stated like rape cases for every assault or domestic violence case reported thirty or more go unreported!

The reasons are clear.

Stigma, family and relatives pressure, the desire to prevent the washing in public dirt entrenched which will impact/expose relationships, family dealings, the real state of an individual’s/family finances, the lies and make believe, skeletons in family cupboards, families pretense to get brides and bridegrooms married off under false wealth pretenses and the possibility and fear of more dirt exposed!

So the truth must never come out!

And honestly, it seldom does!

The authorities will tell you that there have been shockingly many U-turns by victims after pressure is exerted upon them by various quarters!

Many real tragic cases have been short circuited after exhaustive investigations, man hours by dedicated, honest, sacrificial investigators.

Personally I know several, even one official who slept in the office during her later stages of pregnancy pushing herself to complete investigations, only to see two months after arrest and chargers, the victim is pressured to withdraw her reports!

So the terrain has its predators, is rough, dangerous, terrorizing and tough.

So it will take a very strong person, one who gave her all till there was nothing else to, except if she stayed on, her life, to finally go public?

It was no exaggeration as if one analyses case studies of cases one can see everything by abusers and pathological liars are strategically pre-planned and executed.

So spare us the myth and storytelling, I always tells the abusers!

Story telling us of love, a broken heart, honor, the purchasing of jewelry, the accusations of adultery, when oneself is alleged to have committed adultery, of assaults, video recordings that Bukit Aman Forensic have yet to examine and certify as unedited?

Or stupid claims of debunking of evidence which is the figment of the wildest imagination of pathological liars, when proceedings are still ongoing?

Or accusing their victims of going public to get them arrested when that may have already happened prior to victims going public?

In many cases, pathological liars despite having been caught several times perjuring and their “versions debunked” cannot stop as they are riding a tiger!

They know the consequences of perjury under oath!

So they keep shifting and presenting the same hogwash in hundreds of pages thinking they are smart!

I always tell those we advise stick to the truth!

No matter what, stick to the truth!

And because of this, many victims debunked the imaginary and false claims made by their abusers, exposed fabrication and these too very professionally!

Even fabricated false police reports made without contemplating its consequences to one when cross checks are initiated as are always done!

Questions will also be asked eventually whether one abused the due process by falsification of claims and allegations bringing the judiciary to disrepute!

I always tell all never attempt to mislead the courts or your own solicitors for your own personal agenda!

You will destroy careers!

You will be caught eventually, despite your entire story telling believe me!

We have enough of pathological liars and drama queens!

Never underestimate any victim by whose inheritance you are where you are today, who was falsely and with malicious intent tagged a schizophrenia which was debunked professionally, has alleged endured kicks, punches, starvation, being dragged down the stairs, hair pulled, kicked, strangled, slapped, spat on and verbally abused and suffering miscarriages throughout her marriage as a result of incessant beatings and psychological abuse and now falsely accused of adultery?

We wonder who really needs psychiatric assessment?

More so when one does not know the difference between an Advocate and Solicitor of the High Court of Malaya and a law graduate!

What a disgrace!

I am certain honorable Malaysians can tell storytelling and falsehood from truth!

THE IMMEDIATE DEPORTATION OF FOREIGN WORKERS NOT XENOPHOBIA OR RACISM BUT A NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE

  • And it is the responsibility of proactive and no nonsense tolerating Malaysian Home Minister Hamzah Zainudin to take all such steps appropriate to address any clear and present danger to the nation.
  • And he has, as now he and Deputy Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaacob are on the ground daily  addressing the matter.

THE IMMEDIATE DEPORTATION OF FOREIGN WORKERS NOT XENOPHOBIA OR RACISM BUT A NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE

First and for most, I have already gone on record that public policy initiatives, deliberations the laws on security of the nation Malaysia falls on the shoulders of the Malaysian authorities!

And it is the responsibility of proactive and no nonsense tolerating Malaysian Home Minister Hamzah Zainudin to take all such steps appropriate to address any clear and present danger to the nation.

And he has, as now he and Deputy Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaacob are on the ground daily  addressing the matter.

Both have data, intelligence reports that prompt them to act.

All recent data showed the huge work place clusters, the continued arrogance and recalcitrant attitude of both the industry captains and these foreign workers both documented and undocumented!

Those who participated in Aidiladha prayers outside a surau in Taman Pelangi, Juru, despite advisories show a blatant disrespect and regard to Malaysian laws and the current pandemic spread!

There are fears now that we may spark a fresh Covid-19 cluster in the area.

I have repeatedly stated that we do not need the so called local and foreign activists to lecture us on what steps we need to take to protect our population!

We do not need them to preach to us on xenophobia, racism, or the marginalization issues.

This is not it!

They should stop pretending to be experts in addressing an issue that is far above their pay grade and intelligence!

It is time that Malaysia address the over population of foreign workers here both documented, undocumented and take such steps to deport immediately those who show clear disregard to our laws.

Many come from allegedly failed state countries where chaos reigns.

I shared with both the home minister and our deputy Prime Minister that the time is now to take such steps to once and for all deport them.

It is time to revisit protocols and applications for future workers process.

That change must include industry showing proof of manpower need, available facilities to accommodate them and salary structures and perks that are reflective of respect for human rights not the greed of industry as it is presently!

It is time that accommodation is at industrial areas.

Housing that follows the tenets of Act 446 – the Workers Minimum Standards of Housing and Amenities Act 1990.

The days of putting cramming them in housing estates, flats where locals live and other areas are over!

It is the duty of Malaysian authorities to protect Malaysians!

We are not bothered what foreigners or foreign bodies preach but not practice in their own land.

CASSA Malaysia today calls and supports both the Home Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister to take all such steps that action will be taken on these SOP violations by both management and foreign workers and activate a plan of action to deport all law breakers, undocumented foreign workers!

This process will not be complete if managements and owners of industry are left untouched.

Punitive action must also be taken on them

 

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE – CASSA THANKS HOME MINISTER AND BUKIT AMAN FOR ALL ASSISTANCE GIVEN!

‘This is not about ego, about bad mouthing, the defamation, over the social media which have all been screenshot and documented!

This is not about families and individuals ganging up and tarnishing the reputation of those who come forward to help and assist a cause.

Victims have a right to speak out!

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE – CASSA THANKS HOME MINISTER AND BUKIT AMAN FOR ALL ASSISTANCE GIVEN!

I have always had a rule and the CASSA TEAM know that by-heart!

Remember to thank those who help us in various deliberations.

Secondly never allow politicians to highjack your initiatives as they will always turn it into a political hit.

They are not concerned about settling a problem, issues or seeking a way forward amicably if available.

They want to settle scores with their political opponent.

One politician did that yesterday, sadly!

Let me go on record now.

I want to thank the Home Minister, the IGP, and the Special teams at Bukit Aman notably D11.

All of them have helped and assisted behind the scenes in matters CASSA has always addressed.

It was the same with the domestic violence case involving ‘Yoshita!’

I can understand the anxiety, the anger, pressure and the trauma over-riding the victim.

I can understand the anger when there are gaps in the communication between investigators and the victim and in this case the Kuala Muda IPD and the victim.

When the victim after registering more than 8 Police reports and another by her sibling with allegations is kept in the dark?

It is also important that state leaders look at facts and feel some apathy towards victims before they lash out!

I want to thank the IPD Kuala Muda officials who took time to contact me and update me, after the news broke out!

I appreciate their professionalism.

We are all here to do a job.

To help assist bring forward something good and progressive.

It is rather despicable that there was an attempt to spam, to hack and bring to disrepute, to criminally intimidate CASSA Malaysia and indirectly the victim ‘Yoshita’ by ‘Can Diz and Uwais Pemberton!’

This is not about ego, about bad mouthing, the defamation, over the social media which have all been screenshot and documented!

This is not about families and individuals ganging up and tarnishing the reputation of those who come forward to help and assist a cause.

Victims have a right to speak out!

If one cannot understand that primary function then you have no right working in an NGO which addresses human rights issues!

For the record CASSA has already addressed that anomaly!

It is rather despicable that there was an attempt to spam, to hack and bring to disrepute, to criminally intimidate CASSA Malaysia and indirectly the victim ‘Yoshita’ by ‘Can Diz and Uwais Pemberton!’

It is obvious who the perpetrators were targeting!

They forget no matter how great a hacker, great an IT expert they are, there are also super professional experts at Bukit Aman forensics!

Instead of disengaging, bringing down the tempo, they seem obsessed of escalating the issues further!

It is ego at play!

Today thanks to the courage of a victim going public, an issue which has already had several million hits and more than 3000 shares domestically and internationally Malaysian women are encouraged to stand up for their rights!

The support and private messages is just amazing!

‘Remember, what one does today and says in the ecosystem of present turmoil will come back to haunt you as there are innocents in the equation who will one day hold you and others account for what happened!’

And I take the time with heartfelt gratitude to thank the Home Minister, the IGP, the Bukit Aman professionals namely D11 and others in Selangor and Kedah for their support and assistance.

If they were indeed hurt by the outburst of a traumatized victim, I seek your forgiveness!

But now let justice take root and we move forward to do good, not bad and inhumane!

Remember, what one does today and says in the ecosystem of present turmoil will come back to haunt you as there are innocents in the equation who will one day hold you and others account for what happened!

May the Almighty help us make the right choices!

 

Dibeban Institusi Kewangan, 35 Aduan Rakyat Diterima Setiap Minggu – CASSA

By Farhana Farush from Getaran.my

Terperangkap di dalam terowong penuh kegelapan, menanti seberkas cahaya yang entah bila akan menjelma, terus mengatur langkah sarat berladung duka.

Bait kata tidak akan mampu mengungkapkan resah sebenar di hati sejumlah besar rakyat negara ini apabila berdepan kesempitan hidup, gara-gara Malaysia dilanda ancaman pandemik COVID-19 yang entah bila akan berakhir.

Dihambat kemelut kewangan berskala kritikal pastinya bukan keinginan mereka, namun krisis kewangan global angkara COVID-19 menyebabkan masing-masing tidak terlepas daripada tempias kemelesetan.

Malah situasi itu bertambah perit selepas moratorium selama enam bulan ditawarkan institusi kewangan, berakhir dengan tuntutan bayaran semula, sedangkan peminjam terkapai-kapai tanpa sebarang sumber pendapatan.

“Dalam situasi peminjam yang berdepan masalah kewangan bagaimana mereka boleh membayar pinjaman kepada bank?”

Buktinya, Presiden Persatuan Pengguna Subang dan Shah Alam Selangor (CASSA), Datuk Seri Dr Jacob George mendedahkan, pihaknya menerima kira-kira 30 sehingga 35 aduan seminggu sejak beberapa bulan lalu daripada individu terbeban, terutama mereka yang mengalami tekanan kerana menerima ‘desakan’ institusi kewangan.

Katanya, CASSA mendapati hampir kesemua aduan diterima itu berkait rapat dengan tekanan dikenakan institusi kewangan termasuk ansuran pinjaman bank dan kenderaan ditarik akibat kegagalan menjelaskan bayaran bulanan.

Tidak cukup dengan itu, peminjam dihantui gertakan samseng yang diupah khas pihak terlibat, semata-mata untuk mendesak mereka menjelaskan pinjaman pada kadar segera.

“Mereka ini tidak tahu mahu mengadu kepada siapa jadi mereka hubungi kita (CASSA) untuk minta nasihat sebab mereka kenal kita, selalu nampak muka kita turun padang. Mereka tanya apa perlu dibuat bila sedang bawa kereta, ada samseng datang tarik kereta dan bank hubungi berkali-kali mendesak, mereka panik.

“Dalam situasi peminjam yang berdepan masalah kewangan, tiada pekerjaan dan sumber kewangan terjejas teruk, bagaimana mereka boleh membayar pinjaman kepada bank,” katanya kepada Getaran.

Menurut beliau, semua senario itu adalah situasi sebenar dialami sebahagian besar rakyat dan ia bukan lagi satu kes terpencil.

“Apa yang berlaku ketika ini, rakyat Malaysia seolah-olah berdepan tragedi.”

CASSA katanya, setia dengan aspirasi mereka memperjuangkan nasib pengguna, justeru pertubuhan bukan kerajaan (NGO) itu sering tampil menjadi pemudah cara antara peminjam dan institusi kewangan terbabit, bagi mencari jalan penyelesaian holistik, termasuk mengatur pertemuan buat kedua-dua pihak.

“Pertemuan dan perbincangan ini disertakan bukti dokumen bercop rasmi sebagai menunjukkan kesungguhan mereka untuk menjelaskan pinjaman, tetapi terhalang oleh masalah kewangan dihadapi.

“Apa golongan terkesan ini hadapi bukan seperti lima tahun lalu yang menyaksikan ia berpunca daripada kegagalan menguruskan kewangan sendiri, sebaliknya semua permasalahan itu timbul akibat COVID-19,” katanya.

Dalam hal ini jelas Jacob, moratorium ditawarkan seharusnya turut melibatkan pembekuan bayaran pokok dan faedah pinjaman sepanjang tempoh pemberian, bukannya menghimpunkan jumlah kewangan itu yang pastinya membebankan peminjam pada masa depan.

Mengulas lanjut beliau berkata, CASSA diberitahu, cara digunakan institusi kewangan ini jauh lebih teruk berbanding syarat dikenakan pemilik pinjaman tanpa lesen atau Ah Long.

“Beberapa hari lalu, ada satu keluarga bertemu saya menceritakan penderitaan mereka sehingga terpaksa menikmati nasi goreng hanya ‘berlaukkan’ bawang. Apabila saya meminta alamat dan nombor akaun bank untuk menyalurkan bantuan, mereka menolak walaupun didesak, kerana pertemuan tersebut cuma mahu meluahkan perasaan.

“Baru-baru ini pula, ada orang mengadu kepada saya yang keluarganya tidak makan selama tiga hari dan ada-ada masa, hanya mampu menjadikan air basuhan beras sebagai sumber makanan,” katanya sedih.

Jacob juga pernah berdepan dengan sebuah keluarga yang hanya mampu meninjau sebuah restoran dari luar, tetapi tidak berupaya membeli apa-apa kerana ketiadaan wang.

“Mereka memang tidak cakap secara langsung tetapi bila mereka mengeluarkan kata-kata yang jelas menggambarkan rasa putus asa, kita nampak sudah terlintas di fikiran mereka seolah-olah mahu membunuh diri.”

“Saya suruh mereka ambil makanan untuk tujuh ahli keluarga dan saya bayarkan. Apa yang benar-benar menyentuh perasaan, seorang daripada mereka memegang tangan saya untuk mengucapkan terima kasih dan tidak tahu bagaimana mahu membalas jasa saya,” katanya sebak.

Dalam keadaan masyarakat yang begitu teruk terkesan akibat COVID-19 katanya, institusi kewangan seharusnya mengambil pendekatan melaksanakan tanggungjawab sosial masing-masing, berbanding terus menekan pelanggan.

Sepanjang memperjuangkan isu kepenggunaan dan kemasyarakatan selama 40 tahun, Jacob mengakui belum pernah melihat penderitaan rakyat seperti sekarang.

“Apa yang berlaku ketika ini, rakyat Malaysia seolah-olah berdepan tragedi. Jangan jadikan peminjam ini muflis dalam situasi dia tiada kerja sehingga akhirnya kehilangan rumah, kereta ditarik, pemikiran tertekan, sekali gus memburukkan masalah sosial di dalam negara kita dan mencetuskan perasan marah serta benci berterusan terhadap kerajaan.

“Orang sangat tertekan apabila nak cari kerja tak ada, nak bayar hutang tak mampu, nak bincang dengan bank tak dilayan, berdepan masalah rumah tangga, anak menangis kelaparan atau sakit, isteri sedih. Ini semua menjadi tekanan berganda yang sering diadu kepada saya,” katanya.

Kerajaan katanya, perlu melakukan sesuatu bagi memastikan rakyat terkesan tidak terus menderita, seterusnya menerima bantuan bagi meringankan bebanan sepanjang pandemik.

Ketiadaan langkah berkesan tegas beliau, dikhuatiri akan mendorong individu terjejas mengambil keputusan drastik sehingga memudaratkan, termasuk terjebak dengan jenayah atau meragut nyawa sendiri.

Ditanya adakah individu yang menghubunginya ada meluahkan keinginan untuk membunuh diri, Jacob berkata perkara tersebut tidak dinyatakan secara langsung, namun beliau mengerti maksud tersurat di sebalik luahan perasaan itu.

“Mereka memang tidak cakap secara langsung tetapi bila mereka mengeluarkan kata-kata yang jelas menggambarkan rasa putus asa, kita nampak sudah terlintas di fikiran mereka seolah-olah mahu membunuh diri.

“Datuk Seri, saya hanya ada maruah dan jika terus ditekan seperti ini apa lagi saya ada untuk hidup. Jika saya bukan Islam dan tidak takutkan Tuhan, saya dah bunuh diri’, semua ayat ini sudah cukup menggambarkan bahawa perkara sedemikian bersarang di fikiran mereka,” katanya.

Dalam hal ini jelas beliau, kerajaan perlu segera memainkan peranan menyeluruh bagi memastikan situasi berkenaan dapat ditangani sebaik mungkin.

“Kerajaan dan institusi kewangan kena bantu mereka, jangan bila mereka sudah jatuh ditimpa tangga, kita mahu tendang mereka lagi,” katanya. – Getaran, 13 Julai 2021

 

 

FOREIGN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE & INDUSTRY ADVISED TO WALK THE TALK BEFORE PREACHING TO THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE

‘Enough is enough and as our DPM Ismail Sabri Yaakob stated it is now time for action.

Anything less is a betrayal of trust!

As there are already calls from Malaysians to deport and reduce our dependence on foreign workers!’

FOREIGN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE & INDUSTRY ADVISED TO WALK THE TALK BEFORE PREACHING TO THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE

The Malaysian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MGCC) and the Japanese Chamber of Trade and Industry Malaysia (Jactim) seem to have urged Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin to coordinate a targeted approach that is business-friendly and to evaluate the impacts of the current restrictions under the Covid-19 pandemic, among others.

Before they go on preaching to us about “targeted approach or business friendly ecosystem” can I ask them where they house their workers?

Are their workers paid a decent wage or one that is down pressed to keep their profits high?

How much of their profits do they invest into Malaysia?

Is there technology transfer, training skills and exposures to our local workers?

How many foreign workers do they have?

These are all pertinent questions that keep been avoided.

Do they all have adequate housing that fits the expectation of our statutes?

There must be real issues and misgivings!

So I can understand why Deputy Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob was timely in going in record stating that the Malaysian government will not compromise with factories and business premises that violate stipulated regulations and standard operating procedures (SOPs) in its fight against the Covid-19 pandemic!

After all based on all recent data, information post field visits by Malaysia’s home minister Hamzah Zainnudin the majority of infection clusters are from the workplace and many have failed miserably in keeping up to the conditions expected of them.

It has been the state of affairs for a long time.

If not for the pandemic this state of affairs would have continued unaddressed.

I am glad that both the Home Minister and the Deputy Prime minister have stated quite rightly that stern action would be taken against the errant factories and business premises.

I fully endorse and support an all-out ‘war’ in the ‘combat’ against Covid-19 where stern action against factories and business premises that remain stubborn are much needed.

There has been far too much pampering and it is time that the situation changed with a plan of action of fines, chargers against managements even jail terms to protect national interests which has far too long been sacrificed at the altars of obese profits and tolerating the greed of these groups!

As stated by the Deputy Prime Minister 108 factories and business premises that failed to comply with the SOPs and had been ordered to close is certainly not a low figure but a great start!

It is in my mind only the tip of an iceberg of abuse at the workplace through the failure of gate-keepers and others trusted to uphold Malaysian statutes but failed through incompetence, double standards and alleged corruption!

It is time that Malaysia be expected to take such action as to protect our national interests.

Committed and dedicated investors are welcome.

And most importantly before any of their applications for human resources is approved it is vital to ascertain if they have adequate accommodation facilities that does not break our laws or that of basic human rights!

What we have today is a mockery and an abomination.

And it has contributed to infections and fatalities in Malaysia.

It is time we stop sending any signs that we will continue to look the other way as it does not serve our national interest.

To date – thanks to the Covid 19 pandemic, the infection hitting over 836,296 and fatalities at 6,158 and rising, we should have zero tolerance for any compromise, incompetence or fool hardy public policy initiatives!

Enough is enough and as our DPM Ismail Sabri Yaakob stated it is now time for action.

Anything less is a betrayal of trust!

As there are already calls from Malaysians to deport and reduce our dependence on foreign workers!
