CASSA – BAN ALL CREDIT CARDS MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT URGED!

The untold and told misery and destruction caused by Credit Cards is massive.

We know individuals who have committed suicide because of these unholy debts and harassment!

Consumers are made bankrupt or forced to pay huge settlements when already in debts thanks to the calculating formula used by Malaysian banks which is worse than illegal Ah Longs and other money lenders!

These banks are legitimized bastards who are an abomination to justice!

The Malaysian government cannot stay silent any longer they must act now and ban all credit cards with immediate effect.

The Malaysian government must force both local and foreign banks to adopt a more sensitive and humane debt restructuring formula to assist Malaysian consumers who despite huge trauma want to honestly settle loans.

The Malaysian consumers are asking why must they be forced to pay the banks 300 to 400% more of what they actually owe the banks when they are already in financial quicksand and misery?

Why cannot they be asked to just pay off what was actually used and the accounts settled and consumers who are already struggling be allowed to move on with their lives having burned themselves.

After all after this they will never again touch another credit card!

As far as I am concerned Credit Cards are Haram!

The interest formula used is Haram!

And it is time Credit Cards are banned in Malaysia!

   

Consumerist: Bringing A Sense Of Rationality Into The Cadbury Debate!

Dato Jacob George

Report In Malaysia Gazette:

Cadbury: Tindakan Undang Undang Usaha Sia Sia –

By
in

 

Tindakan badan bukan kerajaan (NGO) untuk memfailkan saman ke atas Cadbury berikutan dakwaan dua produk syarikat itu mengandungi DNA babiy disifatkan satu usaha yang sia-sia.

Ini kerana dalam perundangan tindakan memfailkan saman hanya boleh dilaksanakan sekiranya para pengguna dapat membuktikan dengan memakan coklat berkenaan telah memberi kesan tidak baik atau kecederaan kepada badan si pemakan.

Lagipun, di Malaysia tidak ada prosedur tertentu yang membenarkan satu atau dua orang plaintif untuk mengambil tindakan saman bagi pihak kumpulan yang ramai.

Sehubungan itu, pengamal undang-undang, Datuk Dr. Jacob George meminta semua pihak agar lebih rasional dan tidak bertindak secara melulu dan beremosi.

Menurut beliau, dalam kes ini, ia bukan sahaja membabitkan kepercayaan dan agama, sebaliknya turut dilihat kepada masalah teknikal.

“Isu ini bukan sahaja mendatangkan kemarahan oleh orang Islam tetapi juga orang Kristian, Hindu dan Buddha yang tidak makan babi.

“Tetapi apa pun emosi rakyat Malaysia, kita perlu menunggu keputusan analisis Jabatan Kimia Malaysia dalam tempoh tujuh hari lagi.

“Kalau betul disahkan wujud ada DNA babi, pihak yang boleh bertindak ke atas Cadbury hanya Kerajaan Malaysia sahaja.

“Kerajaan boleh menamatkan lesen operasi Cadbury atau meminta jaminan kejadian seumpama itu tidak akan berlaku lagi,” katanya kepada MalaysiaGazette.

Tambah beliau, kalaupun kerajaan mahu menamatkan lesen Cadbury Malaysia perlu mempunyai kes yang cukup kuat memandangkan syarikat berkenaan adalah sebuah operasi multinasional.

“Pada pandangan saya, penamatan lesen boleh dilakukan sekiranya kes mencapai tahap Cadbury mempunyai konspirasi untuk memperdayakan umat Islam dengan sengaja meletakkan DNA babi.

“Tetapi ia sangat mustahil kerana kesannya cukup besar kepada operasi Cadbury dan pasarannya di seluruh dunia,” jelas George.

Berikutan itu, beliau berkata, semua pihak mesti rasional dalam cadangan tindakan undang-undang ke atas Cadbury agar tidak nampak bodoh.

George melihat kes Cadbury ini adalah satu kemuncak kepada agensi-agensi yang terlibat untuk memantau tahap keselamatan makanan yang dijual di negara ini.

Tambah beliau, sejak dulu lagi Persatuan Pengguna Subang dan Shah Alam telah meminta kerajaan mengetatkan sistem label makanan dan minuman.

Sistem label yang dicadangkan itu adalah setiap syarikat pengeluar yang menjual produk makanan di Malaysia mesti menggunakan perkataan mudah dan bukan saintifik bagi kandungan bahan-bahan yang digunakan.

“Masalahnya banyak produk di Malaysia kandungan bahan-bahan yang digunakan menggunakan perkataan saintifik sampai ada pakar makanan pun tak faham,” katanya.

Katanya, sistem itu telah lama digunakan di Eropah dan Australia dan terbukti memudahkan pengguna termasuk kanak-kanak. – MalaysiaGazette

   

 

 

 

Consumerist: Criminal Intimidation, Provocation, Hate Mongering & Race and Religious Baiting New Political Strategy?

Dato Jacob George

‘What is strange is any attempt to do so is frustrated when the politicians holding top government positions intervene making public statements condoning the criminal behavior which is an abomination to the office they behold and inexplicably confirms by perception that it is alright to break the nation’s laws if you are doing it for the politically dominating party?’

Consumerist: Criminal Intimidation, Provocation, Hate Mongering & Race and Religious Baiting New Political Strategy?

Prime Minister Najib has already advised those over-reacting and other fueling the fire!

Listen take his advice!

This is not the way to win lost votes – this is intimidation and provocation!

Even fence sitters and die hard voters are turned away at this!

At each and every political gathering or even social gatherings in any part of the Peninsula this has been the strategy of those who think brute force and intimidation is the tool to bushwhack voters into submission!

Even when wrongs are done right in front of the cameras and identities of the agent provocateurs, hooligans and thugs are known as these over 20 individuals have been part and parcel of most hooliganism and criminal intimidation which includes the seditious wordings on banners displayed to date Malaysian voters have yet to see them being dragged to court to face chargers!

What is strange is any attempt to do so is frustrated when the politicians holding top government positions intervene making public statements condoning the criminal behavior which is an abomination to the office they behold and inexplicably confirms by perception that it is alright to break the nation’s laws if you are doing it for the politically dominating party?

At other times even those politicians with impressive academic background uttering nonsensical statements and threats send the wrong message across!

They are no role model for Malaysians neither for the government in power!

My advice is simple – the next time this happens those with cameras please take extensive pictures of the attacks and focus on the omission of those expected to protect law and order on the place of incident and publish them viral – even to Al Jazeera, CNN, BBC and Reuters!

Embarrass these buggers internationally!

Let the world know what is taking place here.

At the same time politicians of the other political divide must also be individuals of honor, decorum and dignity and not indulge in dialogue or statements that undermines principles of dignity, governance and of public office!

Have some respect for the office you hold – have some respect for those who voted for you thinking you will make a difference!

Malaysians do not want to see a situation where one set of morons and idiots are replaced by another!
