THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S (“AG”) EXPLANATION FOR SETTING UP INQUEST FOR TEOH’S DEATH AND RCI ONLY FOR INVESTIGATIVE PROCEDURES IS MISLEADING AND MISSES THE POINT!


The AG’s argument (see www.nst.com.my/current_news/NST/articles/200907250808253...) for setting up an inquest to look into Teoh’s death is simply that as there is a specific provision under the Criminal Procedure Code for such an inquiry, “it is only proper that a court of law determines the cause of death”.


We have known at all times that there are such provisions for setting up an inquests. The point that is being missed completely by the AG is that all such inquests in the recent past inquiring into deaths in custody have failed to identify the perpetrators and achieve any semblance of a just outcome. No one has been held responsible for any of the 104 deaths in custody since 2003.


These inquests failed for a variety of reasons including the fact the junior judicial officers were investigating in circumstances where they were entirely dependent on the evidence placed before them through police witnesses when it was often the case when police misconduct itself was the core issue in the inquest. Rules of evidence were technical and the participation of lawyers also limited. The failure of the inquests had underlined the call for the IPCMC in the 2005 Report of the Royal Commission to Enhance the Operation and Management of the Police so that an independent body would investigate such misconduct.


It is the failure of these inquests that fuelled the strong public outcry for a Royal Commission into the cause of Teoh’s death.


The announcement in the media today that a Deputy Registrar of the Shah Alam High Court has been appointed as the coroner also goes to reinforce the point we are making. With no disrespect to En.Azmil Muntapha Abas ( of 8 years service including 4 as a Magistrate ), his standing is simply not comparable to the personalities for example who were appointed to the Royal Commission to investigate the assault on Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and identify the assailant/s. They included persons such as Tan Sri Anuar Zainal Abidin ( former Chief Judge Malaya ) and Datuk Mahadev Shankar ( retired Court of Appeal judge ). The Royal Commission on the Police was chaired by Tun Dzaiddin ( retired Chief Justice ).


The AG also misled us by referring to the Commissions of Enquiry Act 1950 to imply that Royal Commissions were for the purpose of inquiring into “conduct and management of government officers and departments or for the public welfare”. Such inquiries can also be made crimes committed by government officers or departments. The best example is that already cited when the Royal Commission was set up in January 1999 to investigate the serious assault on Anwar Ibrahim and in particular to identity his assailant.


The reasons for setting up for such Royal Commissions in the past is quite clear. For some reason, they seem to have escaped the understanding of the AG. I quote from a news portal called the Malaysian Mirror ( www.malaysianmirror.com) which frequently presents news favourable to the Barisan Nasonal as well:




“An independent Royal Commission is a powerful instrument to provide checks and balances within a democratic system of government. The setting up of a Royal Commission is usually a last political resort by a government to probe into a highly controversial issue.

But it does allow the government to show that it has nothing to hide, and that it will absolve itself from any accusation that a government probe will only allow different government investigative agencies to practise mutual back-scratching.

The institution of the Royal Commission is deeply rooted in the parliamentary traditions of democratic practices in Commonwealth countries. It was first made popular in the 1980s in the UK, to meet the many challenges from an explosion of social problems following the beginning of industrialisation.

A Royal Commission also has wide coercive powers, to summon witnesses and documents, seize documents and evidences, hold public hearings, research into cases, consult with experts from both within and outside the government, hold hearings in cameras, offering indemnities, summon classified information even, and coerce all public officials to aid in the execution of the Commission.

The Cabinet decision is puzzling. The mystery behind Teoh’s death and the MACC method of investigative procedures are intimately inter-related, and should be probed by the Royal Commission in one go.”




It is interesting that what is obvious to a group of experienced journalists seems to be beyond the capacity of our legally trained AG.


There is nothing mandatory about the setting up of an inquest – this is obvious in the statement issued by the AG himself where he confirms that he directed the setting up of the inquest by the Magistrate.


It would have been appropriate if as the legal advisor to the government, he had instead advised the Cabinet to broaden the terms of reference of the Royal Commission to include investigating the circumstances of Teoh’s death and indentifying those responsible.


What we see now is the hastily set up inquest which has been directed to start tomorrow. It will only confirm further to all Malaysians that the Government does not intend the Royal Commission to touch on the question of the circumstances of Teoh’s death at all.


Of the two inter-related issues at hand, MACC method of interrogation and Teoh’s mysterious death, the latter is the one that has riled up national anger. Concerned citizens of the country are hungry for the truth about how a promising young man about to be married to a lady two months pregnant with his child entered the MACC office and left as a corpse!


The proposed Royal Commission has much greater moral authority and legal prowess to probe into Teoh’s death and dig out the truth from behind the veil of Malaysian officialdom. To relegate this critical task to a junior magistrate court of inquest opens the BN government to the opposition charge that the Cabinet has put the cart before the horse.


Already, Teoh’s death has reunited the PR coalition and rescued them from their receding public image damaged by public internal bickering and their poor showing at the Manik Urai by-election. Mishandling of the investigation into causes of Teoh’s death will only give them an opportunity to accumulate their political capital towards the next general election.


The Cabinet might have misread public sentiment when they decided on the narrow and ineffectual terms of reference of the proposed Commission of Inquiry related with Teoh’s death.

Pertemuan Zahid Dengan Rakan Sejawatnya dari Israel Menimbulkan Persoalan

Parti Keadilan Rakyat melahirkan rasa kecewa dengan pendedahan laporan bahawa Menteri Pertahanan Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi telah mengadakan pertemuan dengan rakan sejawatnya dari Israel, Ehud Barak di Paris bulan lepas.

Turut dilaporkan ialah Zahid telah terlebih dahulu mengakui menemui Perdana Menteri Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, dan bahawa beliau (Zahid) telah berkeras supaya tidak ada jurugambar yang hadir dalam pertemuan tersebut. Walaupun langkah berjaga-jaga telah diambil bagi memastikan pertemuan tersebut kekal menjadi rahsia, jelaslah sekarang bahawa apa yang berlaku di Paris, tidak semestinya hanya kekal di Paris!

Pertemuan yang sedemikian rupa dengan regim yang telah dikecam di seluruh dunia kerana kekejamannya di Palestin dan Lebanon secara tidak langsung menunjukkan ketidakpekaan dalam isu moral dan politik, tidak kira apa jua justifikasi yang diberikan oleh Zahid.

Sesungguhnya, adalah amat menyedihkan sekiranya Zahid berasakan bahawa pertemuannya dengan Israel akan membuatkan Israel mengubah caranya, sedangkan sekutu-sekutunya yang paling setia seperti Kesatuan Eropah dan Amerika Syarikat pun tidak berjaya dalam desakan supaya regim Zionis mengubah caranya, contohnya desakan untuk menghentikan pembinaan pendudukan haram Yahudi di atas tanah Palestin.

Oleh itu, kita hanya dapat membuat kesimpulan bahawa terdapat lebih daripada sekadar pertemuan yang biasa dalam gerak isyarat diplomatik singkat Zahid dengan Menteri Pertahanan Israel, yang merupakan orang yang sama yang bertanggungjawab dalam semua serangan udara yang dikecam hebat oleh kerajaan Malaysia selama ini.

Pertemuan ini menimbulkan persoalan tentang keupayaan Zahid dalam membuat penilaian yang baik dalam tempoh yang singkat sejak dilantik sebagai Menteri Pertahanan. Apakah urusan Malaysia untuk bertemu dengan Menteri Pertahanan sebuah regim yang mana ia tidak mempunyai hubungan, atau yang tidak pernah diakui hubungannya?

Bagi menambahkan lagi keraguan, pertemuan tersebut bukannya di antara dua orang menteri luar negeri, tetapi di antara dua orang menteri pertahanan.

Protokol politik tidak akan membolehkan dua orang Menteri Pertahanan kerajaan-kerajaan yang tidak mempunyai hubungan diplomatik untuk mengadakan pertemuan. Jelaslah Zahid telah melangkaui deskripsi kerjanya.Satu-satunya orang yang boleh menjawab persoalan ini ialah Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Atau mungkin juga Zahid, yang pada awal tahun ini memainkan peranan ‘memperjuangkan Islam” dengan amaran kerasnya kepada pemimpin-pemimpin bukan Islam di Malaysia supaya ‘tidak menguji kemarahan orang Islam’, mahukah beliau memberitahu kebenaran dan membuat pengakuan tentang kepura-puraan diplomatiknya?

UNWARRANTED STATE VIOLENCE AGAINST UIGHUR PROTESTERS IN URUMQI

The People’s Justice Party deplores the violent incident recently, involving Uighur Chinese citizens in Western China. The peaceful demonstration was broken up by the use of an unwarranted level of brutality by the police, resulting in the tragic deaths of more than 150 Chinese citizens. Over 1,000 more were arrested for an activity which is deemed lawful according to universal principles of human rights.

As an emerging superpower, China should adopt and adhere to international norms of human rights, and grant all its citizens fair and equal opportunities and rights. This includes, also, respecting the identity and culture of its ethnic minorities, including the Uighurs. We would urge the Chinese government and people to embrace plurality, to see it not as a threat to national unity, but rather as a potential source of greater enrichment and strength for the Chinese nation.

Finally, with regard to the Chinese government’s announcement today that it would execute the protest organizers, we strongly urge the authorities to refrain from further punitive measures against the protesters – suppression will not provide a solution, but will instead only create deeper wounds which will erupt again and again.

For a Greener Community in Parliament SUBANG

Forest to be gazetted by end of the year

THE KOTA Damansara forest will be gazetted as a permanent forest reserve by the year-end at the latest.

In a reply to Kota Damansara assemblyman Dr Nasir Hashim, tourism, consumer affairs and environment chairman Elizabeth Wong said that the state executive council had on May 27 approved for the forest to be gazetted.

“We have started the process through the Selangor Forestry Department (JPNS) by giving the approval plans to the Mapping and Survey Department (Jupem) to prepare a gazette plan,” said Wong.

She said the process was expected to be completed before September but no later than the end of 2009.

At the same time, the forest area would be gazetted as a forest reserve, educational forest and research forest under Section 10(1) of the National Forestry Act 1986.

“This would open up possibilities for the state to have a suitable forest management plan for the area, including its potential as a recreation and forest biology education area,” she said.

Wong added that the state government would focus on making forest reserves and state parks a destination for eco-tourism.

“The state, through the JPNS, continually works with non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to protect and preserve the environment, especially forest areas in the state,” said Wong.

The state was in the midst of having a memorandum of understanding with the Global Environment Centre to implement a two-pronged programme that would save cost for the state government while creating awareness among the community about environmental conservation.

Meanwhile, the Selangor government has barred the State Forestry Department from issuing logging permits in a move to end indiscriminate logging in the state.

Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said only the Selangor State Executive Council had the power to approve applications for logging.

In the past, he said the state Forestry Department director was empowered to issue logging permits.

“The change is to ensure the forest reserves are protected and the state takes full responsibility,” he said.

He said the state had not only lost millions to the illegal loggers but the activity had also damaged the environment.

Merdeka Center poll: Youth well informed but politically disconnected

Malaysian youth in general seem to be well informed on current issues but they
remain politically disconnected as found in a nationwide opinion poll released today.

The poll also found out that the youth of Malaysia feel that government decisions have a lot of impact in their daily lives but there is little that their votes can do to influence the government.
The opinion poll, National Youth Survey 2008, was conducted by the Merdeka Center for Opinion Research, with funding support from The Asia Foundation, to gauge youth perceptions of lifestyle, current issues, values, politics, and their own levels of civic and social involvement.

The poll was carried out between 13th November and 9th December 2008 and a total of 2,518
randomly selected Malaysian youth between the age of 20 and 35 years old were interviewed by
telephone. Respondents were selected on the basis of random stratified sampling along the national population profile and specifically proportional to gender, ethnicity and state of residence.

“This is the third consecutive year we have conducted this poll and we hope the data will help
policymakers, grassroots advocacy groups and youth organizations to understand the needs of young people and address their concerns based on factual findings,” said Ibrahim Suffian, the Programs Director of Merdeka Center for Opinion Research.

“These youth will shape Malaysia’s future so it is critical that we look at their attitudes towards their role in the community, in politics or simply to understand how they think,” he added.

Self-efficacy and politics

The poll identified 74% of youth as having low and moderate level of self-efficacy. Although the
perceived impact of government has on their daily lives increased from 72% in 2007 to 77% in 2008, the confidence that the youth have in elections declined by 16% when 80% of youth in 2007 said their votes could make some difference compared to 64% in 2008.

Ethnicity and their backgrounds contribute to significant differences in the level of self-efficacy
among Malaysian youth. For instance, the majority of ethnic Chinese, who attended Chinese school and Mandarin-speaking, were found to express lower levels of self-efficacy where some felt that there was not much that they can do for the community.

On the other hand, Indian respondents who attended Tamil school and embraced Hinduism have the highest level of self-efficacy. They seem to be energized and feel there is much that they can do.

The Malays and other Bumiputras held moderate views over the efficacy of their votes and their
abilities to influence the government.

If voter registration is taken as an indicator of political involvement, the poll shows that such
involvement is considered moderate as only 55% of the youth interviewed were registered voters.
