TIME TO INTRODUCE ‘ENCOUNTER’ ON SERIAL ROBBERS AND OTHERS TARGETING WOMEN AND SOFT TARGETS SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD – PROF DR JACOB GEORGE!

‘It is time we introduced ‘Operation Encounter” in Malaysia to deal with such criminals so that Malaysians and visitors can walk the streets without fear!’

TIME TO INTRODUCE ‘ENCOUNTER’ ON SERIAL ROBBERS AND OTHERS TARGETING WOMEN AND SOFT TARGETS SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD – PROF DR JACOB GEORGE!

Malaysia and the global village are advised to stop – ‘Victim Blaming’ when the victim of a crime or any wrongful act is held entirely or partially at fault for the harm that befell them.

It is about time that we mitigate the perception that victims as responsible.

In many countries, especially where wild extremists’ theologians and closet pedophiles exist and just bloom there is a greater tendency to blame victims of rape than victims of robbery if victims and perpetrators know each other.

Now looking at Malaysia and the increasing violence and robbery where women are the targets it is time for Malaysians of all walks of life come together in unity and address such cases instead of being spectators!

It is time the Civil Society take on these robbers when we see them carrying out an attack!

If we are in our cars we should chase and run them down using our cars as a weapon!

This is already done in the UK where police have released dramatic footage showing officers ramming cars into criminals riding mopeds and sending them tumbling into the road.

My friends at Scotland Yard shared that the newly adopted “tactical contact” strategy is in widespread use in London after a rise in robberies, phone snatches and acid attacks using scooters.

As a result, moped-enabled crime has plummeted by 36 per cent in the capital year-on-year since the methods were rolled out!

Another way in Malaysia is if we have protective gear in the car we should confront these rapid dogs to protect others.

If we can mobilize such civil action and response at the time of a happening instead of being a watcher or spectator this may act as a deterrent to and put fear in criminals!

Remember the next time it could be your loved one, a mother, wife, sister, daughter or grandmother!

Several years ago about 6.30am my wife, a Malaysian doctor was attending to her car at a Shell Petrol Station in Kayu Ara PJU 6A, where she was robbed of her handbag with monies and personal documents by two robbers on a motorbike!

Before 6.55am they had attempted to use her ATM card but failed at a bank close to the incident!

I was rather shocked that other patrons at the said Shell station never went to her aid!

That particular shell station has had several such incidences I am advised!

This sad and tragic incident was captured on Shell CCTV!


The two robbers had come into the station, done their observation, parked just below the CCTV and waited, watching this doctor attend to her car before moving from two sides to steal her personal belongings in the car!

The rather shocked and traumatized woman was in tears when I spoke to her!

IF only I was there!

She had made a Police report in Petaling Jaya and later in the evening followed through with another report at Mutiara Damansara this time, having me by her side.

I had alerted my friends at the Home Ministry, the Selangor State Police Contingent and Bukit Aman and am thankful for their speedy response and support!

I had got the Shell petrol Station to download the incident and copied it providing a copy to the Police for the Forensic Team to comb it as I am certain these were serial robbers and targeting helpless women!

The incident is uploaded also in face book and You Tube so that members of the public can help Police with the identities of the two and at the same time be educated on the ‘do and donts’ by this incident!

Fast forward 2018 I wonder what ever happened to those Police reports and recording.

Were those two robbers ever caught or there ever a comprehensively track down on such players?

If we do then the robbers will know that society has said enough is enough and will take it upon them to confront a robber to save and protect the victim!

Are you aware that many countries have put up advisories on this situation to would be travelers to Malaysia especially women!

Among them:

You should be aware of the dangers of street crime, particularly bag snatching and pickpockets – and scams involving gambling or spiked drinks.

Incidents of bag snatching are common.

There have been many cases of bags being snatched by thieves on motorbikes.

When going out, avoid carrying valuables with you.

Bags with shoulder straps should either be carried with the bag towards the pavement rather than the road, or tucked under the arm.

Do not wrap the strap around your arm or shoulder and do not try to hold on to your bag.

Victims have been injured or killed by being pulled to the ground by their bag straps.

If your bag is snatched, make a police report as soon as possible

Always be aware of your surroundings.

Take particular care of your belongings especially your passport, as visitors’ passports have been stolen on aircraft, cafes, airport and railway terminals, and from hotel rooms.

Be careful if offered a drink by a stranger, even in a reputable bar or restaurant.

Such approaches can involve spiked drinks, and have resulted in cases of robbery and assault.

Do not open your hotel room door to strangers, even those wearing hotel uniform, and especially late at night.

This applies particularly to women traveling alone.

Credit card and ATM fraud is widespread.

Take great care when making payments by credit card and using ATMs.

There have been many instances where cards have been duplicated and skimming devices added to ATMs.

The situation as far as I am aware and from feedback is that we experience elevated levels of crime in densely-populated urban centers around-the-clock.

We cannot deny petty crime is the main driver; violent and more serious crimes are considerably less common.

The most common crimes committed against Malaysian women and foreigners are petty theft, particularly purse snatching, pick pocketing, smash-and-grab thefts from vehicles, and residential burglaries.

Snatching activity is most common in tourist and shopping districts.

It is no super-secret that in Malaysia most purse snatching incidents are perpetrated by thieves on motor scooters, who stalk the victim from behind, and snatch the victim’s purse, phone, or other valuables.

Some follow their targeted victim on motorbikes or cars to the homes of the victim and attack when they are unaware!

Many incidences where women are distracted by their children or on their mobile phones are most often targeted, but men are also frequently targeted.

Home and Hotel driveways and valet areas have become favorite sites for thieves, even in the early morning hours.

Then we have these days the smash-and-grab thieves most often target motorists stuck in traffic.

Typically, a pair of thieves on a motorcycle identifies a lone passenger and with valuables visible.

The thieves smash the window of the car with a crow bar, grab the bag, and speed off.

We can reduce one’s vulnerability by keeping valuables out of sight.

More recently, thieves carrying knives have slashed at and cut victims’ hands in order to shock them into releasing valuables. Increasingly, large groups of thugs have physically confronted victims.

These types of thefts can take place at all hours and often occur in front of large groups of witnesses, even in upscale neighborhoods frequented by expatriates.

We cannot deny as well that residential break-ins are common, and single-family homes are most-frequently targeted.

Thieves are generally non-confrontational and most often target properties while the tenants are away.

While uncommon, some burglars are undeterred by possible confrontations and will detain residents and threaten them with violence.

It is squarely for this purpose that I advise and appeal that we have a task force set up to look comprehensively at the perpetrators of these crimes, their financiers, middle men, and others aiding abetting them and others who have vital information on these criminals operations and modus operanti!

It is time we introduced ‘Operation Encounter” in Malaysia to deal with such criminals so that Malaysians and visitors can walk the streets without fear!

We have a great Police force and it is important that they be allowed to do their jobs without any political interference in breaking the cycle of robberies and violence perpetrated by criminals on motor-bikes and organized crimes!

MH370: DISTURBING QUESTIONS – ARE THE DEBRIS RECENTLY PRESENTED TO THE TRANSPORT MINISTER A NEW FIND OR WERE THEY OF OLD ASKS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE!

“More so when newly received photographs raise deep concerns on the authenticity and claims that several of this debris were allegedly kept by third parties, and innocently re-displayed by some as new finds before the Ministry of Transport recently!”

MH370: DISTURBING QUESTIONS – ARE THE DEBRIS RECENTLY PRESENTED TO THE TRANSPORT MINISTER A NEW FIND OR WERE THEY OF OLD ASKS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE!

On the onset, let me go on record that I have nothing against those who have lost loved ones, who seek a closure as I wish them God speed!

Soon IIT370 will present alternative evidence with complete data urging a new search within the perimeters of a certain area!

We believe what is left of the aircraft is within these ordinance!

All stakeholders and the government agencies will be invited to the presentation!

We will also invite the Malaysian security apparatus to the presentation as well!

We will be accountable, transparent, and we mean business!

Recently a claim was made, that debris is still washing up but that claim can be challenged!

I am all for a new search, but, not by displaying debris which are still to be scientifically examined and classified as from MH370 (9M-MRO)!

We need certainty and new evidence beyond an iota of doubt!

We need to be also truthful, certain and objective that debris is being currently washed up!

More so when newly received photographs ( above) raise deep concerns on the authenticity and claims that several of this debris were allegedly kept by third parties, and innocently re-displayed by some as new finds before the Ministry of Transport recently!

We are very disturbed receiving photographs of the debris being displayed in a foreign land, examined by foreigners, allegedly years ago being similar to those recently presented to the Malaysian government as “new finds?”

Who are these people examining the articles in the sent pictures?

Where and when was this?

Is the Malaysian government aware or notified of this prior to the last presentation?

Many of the debris seen on this table look exactly alike the ones presented to the world at large, the Minister of Transport Malaysia and the local media recently and as such, I am certainly asking the Malaysian security apparatus to initiate an investigation on the background of these debris and those who are claiming that these are recent finds!

These allegedly old photographs are disturbing to the searching and thinking mind, as whether someone is manipulating this narrative in self-interest or what are the real intentions of those who sent these photographs to me?

I raised this before and Minister of Transport Malaysia – I raise them again!

1. The newly minted Malaysian government must first ascertain with scientific evidence that these “debris” were from 9M-MRO!

2. That they are not ‘hoarded evidence from old finds being re-cycled’ as new hits!

3. It is pertinent that the Malaysian government ask how, where, why and by what means they were acquired and whether there was a legal professional documented hand-over witnessed by independent officials.

4. By what scientific proof and evidence is someone making what I interpret as premature claims that these are MH370 debris and that it proves a violent and destructive end to the Boeing 777?

It has been more than four years since we lost that aircraft and since then we should remember there has been many a narrative pandered by a diverse class of interest groups, each with a narrative which so far seem self-serving?

Is this about personalities or an aircraft that went missing March 8th 2014?

MH370 – CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE TO BE PRESENTED TO THE MALAYSIAN AUTHORITIES SOON!

‘The Malaysian Police force should also be invited to monitor the PC after which the Police intelligence team should question certain individuals in the narrative!’

MH370 – CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE TO BE PRESENTED TO THE MALAYSIAN AUTHORITIES SOON!

My late grandfather an educationist and peer of Malaysia’s former premiers always reminded me growing up!

‘Ultimately the truth will come out and vindication will come exposing right, wrong and the peddlers of lies! Be firm and pursue what is right and honorable!”

A very dear friend from an international research facility in Australia stated this to both my team member and I when we visited the facility for discussion on MH370 and debris field!

“At this moment in time with so many unknowns, everyone has a ticket to win the lottery but there can be only one winner ultimately!”

My team and I can live with that, but, will we tolerate the kind of malicious attack that is coming our way engineered by a group of individuals embedded with several media groups, stations, allegedly close to the ATSB and massaging their own narratives, twisting and turning, saying half-truths, blatant lies as their claims and narrative of the mathematical formula, alleged sightings in Western Australia, Maldives, sitting in some Cambodian jungle or some part of the South Indian ocean – all becoming super jokes among those analyzing the statements, claims, counter claims, body language, the pull back, twisting the facts and claiming victimization when challenged!

So far we have mathematical formulas that have yet to produce a sighting after two extensive searches in the alleged burial grounds of the South Indian Ocean (SIO)!

We have a manufacturer and brand totally silent?

We have those super powerful forces with ‘birds in the skies’ but say nothing!

We had many radar positioned along that flight course but nothing revealed!

Now after over four years of pure unadulterated speculation and super BS some pedaling on record that the aircraft eventually met ‘a violent end by breaking up?’

Very convenient and a departure when one checks earlier narratives from the same sources?

To resurrect another search one need clarity, conclusive data or information, not playing up emotions and ultimately nit-picking at straws by going on a wild goose chase of debris hunting with alleged promises, financial gratification and claims that one is a CIA official to one group, FBI to another or a member of the US foreign service to a third and at the same time claiming of receiving death threats and from whom and why?

Friends in the Malaysian media should not become emotional neither romantic when a piece of ‘what have you’ is positioned on a table and masqueraded as from a missing aircraft unless accompanied by certification from both manufacturer, and independent experts!

They should ask very hard questions that my team and I have asked in my blogs!

Among them, most importantly a legal and historical account through an affidavit – how, where, why and by what means they were acquired.

Who were the handlers? Were there financial inducements made?

Who managed the independent assessment and observation of this process?

There is curiosity as well, how in several cases, debris are allegedly found with media or cameras strategically paraded?

I am certain the next time we have a Press Conference (PC) in Malaysia the media here will ask forensics penetrating questions!

The Malaysian Police force should also be invited to monitor the PC after which the Police intelligence team should question certain individuals in the narrative!

For now from the IIT370 side, we on our part will personally finance an attempt to provide evidence to the Malaysian public and to the government where we believe MH370 (9M-MRO) hit the water!

We will soon provide enough data, information, evidence and believe that will help in the comparison between us and the narratives so far on the table in this tragic script, noise, claims, calculations and silence by others!

 

MOTORBIKE INFESTED FEDERAL HIGHWAY NOW A DANGEROUS DRIVE SAYS MOTORISTS!

“Worst is there any truth that the federal highway is used by motorbikes to escape the arms of the law by those breaking the law?”

MOTORBIKE INFESTED FEDERAL HIGHWAY NOW A DANGEROUS DRIVE SAYS MOTORISTS!

Not many are aware of this fact that the history of the highway started after the separation of Singapore from Malaysia on 9 August 1965, when the Malaysian government decided to make Port Swettenham (now Port Klang) as Malaysia’s new national port as a replacement of Singapore.

As a result, the government planned to build a highway connecting Port Klang to Kuala Lumpur by upgrading the former Kuala Lumpur–Klang Highway (Jalan Kuala Lumpur–Klang) (opened to traffic on 14 January 1959) to a full motorway by replacing the existing at-grade intersections with interchanges, making the Federal Highway as Malaysia’s first expressway.

The Kuala Lumpur–Petaling Jaya Traffic Dispersal Scheme was implemented in 1974 under the surveillance of the Malaysian Public Works Department (JKR).

This scheme includes the Kuala Lumpur Inner Ring Road, Kuala Lumpur Middle Ring Road 1, Jalan Syed Putra and Federal Highway Route 2 (Kuala Lumpur–Petaling Jaya).

Funded by a loan granted by the World Bank, the upgrade works for the Federal Highway from Subang Airport Interchange to Kuala Lumpur started from 1974 until 1977!

One of the positive features was that motorbikes were banned from the federal highway as they had their respective motorbike lanes over the same stretch!

It was a landmark decision in the safety of users and public interests!

Any motorbikes on the federal highway were stopped by traffic police who issued a ticket and worst other penalties if found they had no license, or other issues!

However of late something is inexplicably amiss!

The current federal highway is infested with motorbikes speeding, moving right to left, left to right, damaging cars and putting all motorists at risk!

Today, there are growing complains and claims that the abuse is currently increasing because of constant checks of the Police on the segregated motorbike lanes for those who break the law by riding a motorbike without license, even a stolen motorbike, having a criminal record, or a foreigner and illegal economic migrant or worker.

So riding a motorbike on the federal highway offers an escape from the hands of the law it is alleged by individuals spoken to in anonymity by this writer in the surveyed area!

But among the issues that need a fast remedy is for the traffic police to go public on the state of the federal highway.

Are motorbikes allowed on this stretch?
If not why is there no mobilization of a security response to prevent this?

Worst, is there any truth that the federal highway is used by motorbikes to escape the arms of the law by those breaking the law?

Or will the issue be addressed only after the massive loss of lives on federal highway?

MH370 MEETING A VIOLENT END BREAKING APART FIGMENT OF SOME SHENANIGANS WILD IMAGINATION SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE

‘There is curiosity as well, how in several cases, debris are allegedly found with media or cameras strategically paraded?

Then, still unexplained that matter and claim that there was death threats, killing by lethal injection and what have you claimed by one from a threat in Madagascar?

If indeed there was any truth in those claims why then is someone in Madagascar again?’

MH370 MEETING A VIOLENT END BREAKING APART FIGMENT OF SOME SHENANIGANS WILD IMAGINATION SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE

If there was ever a serial narrative of misinformation, politically calculated management of a tragedy, you can find it in the disappearance of MH370 (9M-MRO)!

It is a tragedy of economic proportions that is still being manipulated!

Many are emotionally and mentally compromised and thus undertaking a course of actions that is not pragmatic!

If this continues public opinion will turn drastically on this matter!

If you have been following my uploads on this matter, I have already stated that a great deal of what is alleged to be “9M-MRO debris” was in the possession, of certain parties and still is, as not all have been handed over to the Malaysian authorities!

This was again confirmed by an individual in the center of this controversy in a Malaysian hotel in the midst of others!

My take!

These were my exact words in September:

“In the four years, debris collectors and planters have not handed over all that was acquired under various pretenses.

Some were handed over to the Malaysian authorities and others, still retained illegally by these groups and individuals who do not have the legal right to withhold information.

These individuals some alleged to be Australians if true, we hold the Australian government responsible to see that the alleged debris or allegedly passengers’ possessions and items – are returned to us so that we can address and attempt to piece together, what really happened.

I also raise the need to question those claiming to have found these items and ask them to make affidavits as to how, where, why and by what means they were acquired.

There seem to be far too many secrets here.

For far too long, we have allowed these third parties to run wild managing this narrative instead of us Malaysians doing it.”

Again November 2018, I challenge these individuals, how, where, why and by what means they were acquired.

Were there financial inducements made?

There is curiosity as well, how in several cases, debris are allegedly found with media or cameras strategically paraded?

Then, still unexplained that matter and claim that there was death threats, killing by lethal injection and what have you claimed by one from a threat in Madagascar?

If indeed there was any truth in those claims why then is someone in Madagascar again?

So till now no affidavits on the process and transparency of those alleged finds or claims!

Any truth to the death threat claims from Madagascar?

This would provide clarity and credence that the debris finds are an honest find and not one manipulated, planted, or through financial inducement or other alleged impropriety gathered them.

The affidavit would answer several allegations that have since been raised.

Then there is that misinformation of sorts?

Who found this debris as some reports claim that the families found them and then we have one bringing the Madagascar narrative?

So again I ask?

Were these families in Madagascar?

Are not all these, over time, accumulated debris which is still to be legally and scientifically processed to ascertain whether they are and were from 9M-MRO?

Are we not getting ahead of ourselves in our emotional desperation claiming this to be a “massive breakthrough” or that other unscientific and unsubstantiated claim that
MH370 debris proves violent and destructive end to Boeing 777?

This is the classic example of disinformation narrative that has plagued this tragedy from day one!

Then there is the case of threats, noise and attacks leveled by innuendoes through the Australian media by a rather unprofessional Australian journalist who misinterprets our questions!

What ever happened to journalistic ethics and of Audi alteram partem (or audiatur et altera pars)?

Whereby, we are only expecting accountability, transparency and professionalism as it involves our aircraft, our crew, our liability and national image.

How our reasoning and questions are be interpreted as “stalking or discrediting another?”

Is there not a duty of care there somewhere?

As such, there is no need for any third party to discredit anyone when that individual by his own actions and omissions has discredited himself more than on one occasion!

For example that infamous Perth story – there were no one stalking anyone there!

No need to, as that information came from the alleged “sexual gay partner” of an individual who had called up several individuals excitingly and innocently telling them that he was in Perth with his gay partner and what he was doing there on MH370 with a media group!

And inexplicably that gossip went viral!

But I was defamed, my Australian family members drawn in and threatened by another Australian who claims intimate ties with the ATSB, an American and a UK citizen contributing to a smear campaign against me for something the gay partner of another did!

The vulgarity that came then on immensely shocking!

I will now address my concerns here to the Malaysian government!

1. The newly minted Malaysian government must first ascertain with scientific evidence that these “debris” were from 9M-MRO!

2. That they are not ‘hoarded evidence from old finds being re-cycled’ as new hits!

3. It is pertinent that the Malaysian government ask how, where, why and by what means they were acquired and whether there was a legal professional documented hand-over witnessed by independent officials.

4. By what scientific proof and evidence is someone making what I interpret as premature claims that these are MH370 debris and that it proves a violent and destructive end to the Boeing 777?

It has been more than four years since we lost that aircraft and since then we should remember there has been many a narrative pandered by a diverse class of groups, and also basically lunatics!

But there were also well documented major climatic events that could also impact a ditched and then sunken whole aircraft!

I am alluding to the great minds who think we are all idiots here in Malaysia to bear in mind that a very intense tropical Cyclone event taking place at precisely that same duration of time we lost MH370 (9M-MRO).

Cyclone Hellen of March 2014, was one of the most powerful tropical cyclones in the Mozambique Channel on record, as well as the most intense of the 2013–14 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season which could severely damage any sunken body!

Then, we also have the other eye witness account on the table off the Sumatran waters, which could also have been impacted by vessels, a submarine or other vessels navigating in that area catching a full body and dragging it across, thus breaking it up and over time – more than 4 years now it could be in several parts across several areas or debris field, and unless we have a precise location/site one cannot go on a wild goose hunt in the seas or oceans of the world!
