Consumerist: Politicizing Sugumaran’s Death And Suggesting A Coffin For Hishammuddin Despicable!

Dato Jacob George

Dr Jacob George slams the opposition politicians:

‘What silence is he talking about when it was the Home Minister who has been walking the telephones lines and jerking each and everyone for reports and briefing the premier to date!

I can understand a candle light vigil, I can understand initiating pressure on the authorities for answers on behalf the bereaved family and I can understand emotions can run wild when dealing with death!

But it is a despicable act, totally irresponsible and unbecoming behavior to bring a coffin for the Home Minister and politically muddying the issues therein.’ – Dr Jacob George

Consumerist: Politicizing Sugumaran’s Death And Suggesting A Coffin For Hishammuddin Despicable!

In the matter of the death of 40 year old security guard C Sugumaran the Premier Najib Abdul Razak has stepped in to deal with the controversial death who was allegedly beaten by police officers, by urging the Health Ministry to send the forensic report to the cabinet.

My sources tell me that Minister Liow Tiong Lai was instructed to do so after the matter was brought up at this week’s cabinet meeting as this matter was now creating more racial and political polarization!

The incident has taken great notoriety after we had witnesses claiming that Sugumaran, allegedly mentally disturbed, was chased by several police officers on the evening of Jan 23, before he was handcuffed, had turmeric powder smeared on his face and was subsequently beaten to death.

And now with the attention of the Premier and I believe the Home Minister the matter will get an in-depth look with no stones left unturned.

So I cannot but be flabbergasted with the childish pranks of opposition members including Kapar MP S Manikavasagam who is reported to have stated that he would present a coffin to Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein in seeking justice for security guard C Sugumaran.

The words reportedly said were as follows:

“We will bring a coffin to Hishammuddin’s office in Putrajaya.

“I’ll get him a pillow too so that he can be more comfortable. We’ll gather in front of his office at the Home Ministry at 11am on Feb 4,” said Manikavasagam who criticized Hishamuddin for his silence in Sugumaran’s death in custody

What rubbish!

Let the cops do their job!

Let us be impartial, look at the facts accordingly and now with the intervention of the Premier and the Cabinet this matter must be allowed to take its reasonable cause!

Not be interfered with a political agenda and personalized attacks which is so immoral and totally uncalled for! In fact it is political barbarism!

Consumerist: Bible Burning Threat – Now Former AG Abu Talib Also Throws in His Support For Action!

Dato Jacob George

‘If so you do not have to be a rocket scientist or legal intelligentsia from Harvard Law School to know that those words were seditious within the Sedition Act 1948, reading it as a whole and in the context it was made. So, whether the Bible was burned is not material though helpful in the prosecution of the case if he is charged!’ Dr Jacob George

Consumerist: Bible Burning Threat – Now Former AG Abu Talib Also Throws in His Support For Action!

I have always had a very high regard to the no nonsense tolerating retired Attorney-General Tan Sri Abu Talib Othman.

He is strict and looks fierce but he is extremely simple, straight forward, warm and helpful!

In the past I have learnt a great deal from him in my few meetings with him as a Law undergraduate!

So it is no secret that I was overjoyed at his statement that the authorities speed up action against Ibrahim Ali over his Bible-burning threat and strongly adding that any further delay in acting against the veteran politician could be held against the establishment ahead of Election 2013.

That was exactly my contention in my earlier blog!

It is no secret that Ibrahim’s vulgar statement last week where he reportedly called on Muslims to torch Malay-language copies of the Christian holy book created major anxieties, anger and further downward spiral of the support that can now be expected from Malaysian Christians from the Peninsula, Sabah and Sarawak!

Like my learned colleague stated – what is the issue here – did he utter those words?

If so you do not have to be a rocket scientist or legal intelligentsia from Harvard Law School to know that those words were seditious within the Sedition Act 1948, reading it as a whole and in the context it was made. So, whether the Bible was burned is not material though helpful in the prosecution of the case if he is charged!

We can also look at Sections 298 and 505 of the Penal Code!

I have already stated that there was absolutely no reason for the law enforcers to procrastinate deciding whether or not to prosecute the independent federal lawmaker who has been accused of inciting tension among Malaysia’s Muslim majority camp and followers of other faiths on several occasions without any action taken on him whatsoever!

This has already raised anxiety and comments that this is a classic case of Malaysian political elites and others expected to carry out their duties instead practicing selective prosecution?

Since these statements are coming from a man who was our A-G for 13 years from 1980 to 1993, I hope may add stimulus to see that action is indeed taken against this individual who has made far too many seditious and racist statements for far too long and most importantly, against the Malaysian Christians!

A day in Malaysia does not go past without Malaysian Christians been repeatedly accused of plots to topple Islam as the official religion of the country or Christian proselytizing of Muslims and sundry other reports by bankrupt politicians or mercenary cyber troopers – all of which were alleged but not proven even at this time of writing despite widespread publicity in racists and politically controlled media and I wonder just why?

Can we now expect chargers to be filed in the public interest and in keeping with the tenets of any nation that is governed by law and order?

Consumerist: AG Asked – Why No Arrest Yet On The Bible Burning Threat?

A day in Malaysia does not go past without Malaysian Christians been repeatedly accused of plots to topple Islam as the official religion of the country or Christian proselytizing of Muslims and sundry other reports by bankrupt politicians or mercenary cyber troopers – all of which were alleged but not proven even at this time of writing despite widespread publicity in racists and politically controlled media and I wonder just why?

Perhaps, just perhaps they were raised by individuals suffering from a serious bout of pathological defect or schizophrenia of the worst kind?

If these attacks by a bunch of idiots are not a religious profiling and bashing of Malaysian Christians, for a political agenda, I wonder what is?

Meanwhile, like all Christians in Peninsula Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak, I wonder why no arrest have so far been made under sections 298 and 505 of the Penal Code or the Sedition Act used for this politically calculated, timed, malicious and vicious attack on Malaysian Christians for the threat to burn our Holy Book the Bible?

Upset Christians in Peninsula Malaysia and now Sabah and Sarawak must be wondering what the apparent ‘inaction’ actually means to their fundamental rights as Malaysian Christians and voters at GE13?

Consumerist: Ada Orang Kata Di-Malaysia Pekerja Asing diutamakan Kerana Kroni2 Dapat Commission Berjuta3 Ringgit Daripada Ajen2 Pekerja Asing Dan Pekerja tempatan disisihkan- Betul Tak?

Dato Jacob George

‘Take for example the highly corrupt and abused Bangladesh worker migration where the stink is far too unbearable but absolutely nothing has been done though everyone knows what is happening – because – it is a multi million ringgit operation in both countries where politicians, their cronies and runners make huge2 money to finance their luxurious and flamboyant bogus lifestyles!

This trade has in Malaysia become hereditary as son takes over from the retired father or former workers marry Malaysian women and set up agencies through their newly wedded wives race, religion and political status and now live instead of worker cabins in high end condominiums and luxury homesteads in prized locations in the Klang Valley?’ – Dr Jacob George

Consumerist: Ada Orang Kata Di-Malaysia Pekerja Asing diutamakan Kerana Kroni2 Dapat Commission Berjuta3 Ringgit Daripada Ajen2 Pekerja Asing Dan Pekerja tempatan disisihkan- Betul Tak?

I have worked with over 7 Home and Human Resources Ministers and as such know that Malaysia has always been dependent on foreign workers for decades!

In fact, I was victimized, received death threats for speaking out on the Bangladesh scandal several years ago which upset many high powered beneficiaries from various tiers and sector of the trade!

As a result, I failed to even get an outsourcing license though I was one of the draughtsman for it and my application had the support of a VVIP because of the substance within and during the tenure of the then Home Minister who left so suddenly leaving me exposed to the ‘attacks of the vultures’ who then did their worst to me!

I suffered greatly! But still am loyal!

While ironically, many of the beneficiaries of this and other projects to the tune of multi millions had joined the opposition or secretly financing them?

For the record, for me everything about the Bangladesh worker trade exchange is vulgar and foul and extremely corrupt that ‘Dacca’s corridors of power’ smell of a most foul odour!

But at the same time back home – every industry be it construction, plantation, Farming, Service Sectors notably restaurants ,factories and other industries are full of foreigners from time immemorial and to date.

And where are the locals?

Perhaps, they all want to be Ministers, CEOs and Directors of GLCs or be brokers of projects drive luxury cars, live fancy lifestyles thanks to the spirit of political patronage now so evident!

But I have always maintained that there are serious structural and systemic weaknesses in the whole question of managing foreign labor.

First while other countries encourage skilled-labor immigrations we steamroll cheap labor immigrations which is fatal to the economy in the long term, dangerous to the security of the nation in the time of economic distress and a courting disaster in government to government relationship when policies differ!

Take for example the highly corrupt and abused Bangladesh worker migration where the stink is far too unbearable but absolutely nothing has been done though everyone knows what is happening – because – it is a multi million ringgit operation in both countries where politicians, their cronies and runners make huge2 money to finance their luxurious and flamboyant bogus lifestyles!

This trade has in Malaysia become hereditary as son takes over from the retired father or former workers marry Malaysian women and set up agencies through their newly wedded wives race, religion and political status and now live instead of worker cabins in high end condominiums and luxury homesteads in prized locations in the Klang Valley?

They are all over walking in and out of the labor marketplace in their new status and luxury fixtures and fittings and image!

NONESo the peaceful demonstration by close to 1,000 employers and employees with an alleged cooperation of 57 NGOs held in Putrajaya today to protest the minimum wage policy for foreign workers which came into effect earlier this month will have minimum effect even though their contention that this reversal of policy benefits only 4% of Malaysians?

But they forget there are far too many political parasites dependent on this labor supply for anything to change for the better!
