PRESS STATEMENT BY SIVARASA RASIAH
STOP HARASSING MP’s ; USE POLICE RESOURCES RESPONSIBLY
I was summoned by the Subang Jaya Police to be questioned today with regard to my involvement in raising the issue of the death in custody of Chang Chin Te on or around 15 January in the USJ 8 police station lockup. Chang is the son of the Ketua Kampung for the Subang New Village Mr Chang Chan Man. Subang New Village is within Subang Parliament consitutency – in fact the constituency is named after the village.
The background to the case is as follows. Chang was arrested on or about January 10. He was reported dead in the lockup to the family four days later. His widow Lim Wei Ni reported seeing bruises on his face and body in the mortuary and when she took photographs was ordered by police in the mortuary and hospital staff to delete the photographs. The family was understandably suspicious about the circumstances of the death.
Myself and YB Gobind Singh advised that a second-post mortem would be helpful and we assisted the family to present a demand to Bukit Aman to allow the second post mortem. We were forced to go to Bukit Aman because the OCPD of Subang Jaya ACP Yahya Ramli and the Selangor CPO had refused our requests on behalf of the family to give written permission for the second post mortem.
As this was a police case, government hospitals take the unfortunate position that they will not undertake any further action without written permission in the form of a Police Form 61 signed by the police. The request by the family was not enough. Regretably government hospitals still take this position although knowing that in death in custody cases, the police are in a position of conflict of interest and have in the past blocked requests for second post mortems such as in Kugan’s case.
I deplore today’s resource and time wasting exercise when valuable time of senior police officials are deployed in an unnecessary harassment exercise against opposition MPs taking up issues on behalf of citizens in their constituency. I am informed that YB Gobind Singh was subjected to a similar interrogation last week on this same incident.
I call upon the IGP to ensure that the valuable resources of the police force are not misused in this fashion. OCPD’s or CPO’s or for that matter any police officer who initiate such acts of harassment should be taken to task and disciplined.
The resources of the police force should be focused on crime fighting. A senior ASP acting on orders is wasting his time recording statements from YB Gobind and myself and conducting an investigation into alleged criminal offences conducted by us when we were in fact carrying out duties as elected representatives.
There are far more serious issues in this country that warrant investigation. A very good example would be the recent public revelation by PI Bala’s lawyer, Americk Singh Sidhu that Tan Sri Cecil Abraham, a senior lawyer, had confirmed to him that PI Bala’s second SD was done by him on the instructions of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.
This directly implicates the Prime Minister, his brother Nazim Tun Razak and all others involved in the commission of the offence of fabricating false evidence and suborning perjury – and even worse, the possibility that this offence was committed to keep hidden the names of those who directed Azilah and Sirul to commit the Altantuya murder. The resources of PDRM should be deployed to a reopening of this case.

Deepak alleged in writing that an unnamed person had actually prepared a statutory declaration stating that he had been instructed to kill Altantuya by his immediate superior, and that an immediate superior had taken instructions from Najib.
He also said that the unnamed person changed his mind after seeing private investigator Balasubramaniam's second SD.
Najib & Rosmah "belled"
In so saying, Deepak had finally belled the cat by actually speaking in writing for the first time the whispers that have been circulating in this country from the time of the murder in October 2006 regarding the alleged involvement of Najib and his spouse in the high profile murder of Altantuya.
His statements are sufficient for the relevant agencies, the Attorney-General's office and the police to immediately re-open the murder investigation and record a full statement from him.
No action from them will mean a continuing conspiracy to hide the truth. It is also in the Prime Minister's interest that his name is cleared if Deepak's statements are indeed false.
Secondly, Deepak again reiterates the involvement of Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor in the process of the making of the second SD done by Bala. He repeats, amongst other things, that he was instructed by her to remove "certain facts and certain spicy details in (sic) the affair between Najib and Altantuya".
The Malaysian public will need to hear from Rosmah what her riposte is to this.
Proceeds from Glomac Tower
Thirdly, Deepak alleges that he made payments to Najib and Rosmah from "the proceeds of Glomac Tower to a subsidiary of Kuwait Finance House" and this evidence was recorded by one Dato Jamidan, a senior director with MACC in 2011.
MACC has to explain immediately to the Malaysian public whether this allegation of payment to Najib and Rosmah is true, and if so, was it for any corrupt purpose. We also await the response of the MACC on Deepak' allegations supported with documents that he had made expensive presents in diamonds and jewellery to Rosmah.
A serving Prime Minister going to the public for an electoral mandate to govern cannot be the proverbial ostrich with its head in the sand in respect of these very serious issues. Deepak's statements are specific. Malaysia needs specific answers.
Silence will be taken to mean that Deepak's allegations are credible and with basis.
PKR not involved in first SD
I take this opportunity to also correct a misstatement in the first paragraph of Deepak's article where he says( perhaps because of incorrect information given to him ) that I and other Pakatan leaders had advised on the content of Bala's first SD.
I repeat what has been said on record by Bala's own lawyer Mr Americk Singh Sidhu. Bala's first SD was prepared by Americk Singh with full detailed instructions from his client.
It would be insulting to Americk as a senior lawyer to suggest that I or any other lawyer or politician for that matter could influence the contents of what I understand to be a document that he had taken careful, conscientious and considerable time and effort to prepare.
I also reiterate that no money was promised or paid to Bala by myself or any other Pakatan leader for the making of Bala's first SD. Americk Singh is also fully aware of that.
Finally, the Malaysian police had in 2009 recorded full statements from myself and Americk Singh and other persons pursuant to allegations that Bala's first SD was made under duress. No further action was then taken by the police or the Attorney-general in respect of those allegations.

WE ARE READY
March 8, 2013 is the end of BN’s term in power
Yet unknown is the date of the next election
The whole nation is now asking the BN in wonder
“Are you not ready for the General Election?”
In the political divide, it’s clear BN is far from ready
Torn apart by its internal conflict for power
Torn apart by its corrupt practices in the country
It is fast losing ground and the weakest ever.
On the other side, it’s clear PR is prepared and ready
United by bitter lessons in struggle for power
United by ideals to save and to prosper the country
It is fast gaining ground and the strongest ever.
The time has come for the 13th General Election
The people roared before the PR leaders
“We are ready ! We are ready for the election !”
Will Putrajaya see a change of leaders ?
KENYATAAN AKHBAR OLEH AZLAN MOHD LAZIM BAPA KEPADA
SAIFUL BUKHARI BIN AZLAN PADA 8 MAC.2013 DI KUALA LUMPUR
Assalamualaikum wmth dan Salam Sejahtera.
Dengan nama Allah Yang Maha Besar lagi Maha Berkuasa.
Saya Azlan Mohd Lazim sesungguhnya percaya anak saya Saiful Bukhari telah dipergunakan oleh pihak-pihak tertentu yang tidak bertanggung jawab termasuk Khairil Annas Jusoh, Pegawai Khas kepada Perdana Menteri. Mereka inilah merupakan dalang kepada semua FITNAH LIWAT yang dilakukan terhadap YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, yang melibatkan anak saya.
Saya amat kesal atas segala fitnah yang telah dilemparkan terhadap Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, yang membabitkan anak saya Saiful Bukhari.
Malah anak saya lansung tidak pernah menceritakan tentang kejadian dan pertuduhan tersebut kepada saya. Saya mengetahui hal anak saya terlibat dan dituduh cuma melalui akhbar milik kerajaan. Saya tidak pernah dihubungi oleh mana-mana pihak bagi mendapat keterangan dari saya sebagai bapa dari awal hingga tamat perbicaraan.
Semua kenyataan-kenyataan akhbar yang dikeluarkan oleh anak saya dan saya sendiri telah dirancang dan diskripkan oleh peguam Zamri Idrus bersama dengan Khairil Annas Jusoh.
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim tidak bersalah dan telah menjadi mangsa fitnah ini.
Saya ingin menyatakan walaupun pada ketika perbicaraan berjalan terhadap Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, saya sentiasa dilihat berdamping dan bersama dengan anak saya, yang sebenarnya saya lakukan ini semata-mata kerana kasih seorang ayah yang memberi sokongan moral kepada anaknya yang sudah tidak beribu. Saya sememangnya tidak percaya kepada dakwaan-dakwaan yang dikenakan terhadap Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Dengan ini saya memohon maaf kepada Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan famili beliau. Beliau dan familinya telah banyak menderita dan sangsara akibat fitnah ini.
Saya lakukan pendedahan ini kerana setelah sekian lama saya mengumpul maklumat-maklumat samaada semasa dalam perbicaraan mahupun yang dikirim kepada saya oleh orang ramai, saya dapati kebenaran mula terserlah dan jelas kelihatan. Pihak pemerintah langsung tidak pernah menemui saya untuk berbincang kes ini apatah lagi mahu bertanya pendapat saya. Segalanya dirancang dengan bagitu rapi oleh Khairil Annas Jusoh. Ianya dilakukan dengan bagitu terancang sekali.
Sebagai seorang Melayu dan Islam, saya mula sedar akan perancangan jahat ini. Saya tidak mahu terus bersekongkol dengan fitnah jahat ini. Saya mahu rakyat yang cintakan negara ini tahu akan niat jahat mereka.
Jika niat jahat ini berterusan, bukan sahaja umat Melayu dan Islam hancur tetapi negara musnah. Saya tidak sanggup melihat ini terjadi. Saya mengambil keputusan untuk bersama Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Pakatan Rakyat dan Rakyat Malaysia yang dahagakan kemakmuran dan keamanan bercakap benar dan menentang kejahatan ini.
Saya merayu kepada seluruh rakyat negara ini untuk tidak mempercayaai fitnah ini dan marilah kita sama-sama bangun, bersatu menentang kezaliman ini dan bekerja keras agar kebenaran akan muncul. Marilah kita sama-sama berdoa agar Allah merestui perjuangan ini.
Marilah kita juga dokan agar Allah menangkan perjuangan mulia Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan Pakatan Rakyat untuk mengambil alih pemerintahan negara dalam Pilihan Raya ke 13 nanti.

PRESS STATEMENT 7 March 2013
I refer to recent reports in the Tamil media quoting T. Mohan MIC Youth Chief who suddenly appears to be trying to champion the Bukit Rajah estate workers. He appears to be asking the question “why 8 acres of land was returned to the developer and also “why not build 144 houses for 144 workers on the land instead of returning the 8 acres”.
These questions are actually irrelevant questions. They actually show his ignorance of the actual facts. There is no question of “returning the land” to the developer because the land belonged to the developer Sime Darby all the time. There is also no question of building houses for 144 workers because at all times only 76 workers were involved in the litigation with Sime Darby which I handled since 1993.
I now set out the facts from the beginning so that readers can draw their own conclusions.
From 1993 my law firm M/s Daim & Gamany has represented about 76 ex-estate workers from Bukit Rajah estate in their struggle against forced eviction by Sime Darby from the estate housing occupied by them. We must remember that at all times until today Sime Darby is a GLC controlled by the Federal government which T Mohan’s party MIC is part of.
Sime Darby terminated the workers in phases from April 1992. They then offered the ex-workers low cost five-storey walk-up flats for RM25,000. Many workers accepted the offer and moved out of their estate quarters. Some refused saying that they were promised single storey terrace houses NOT flats.
Sime Darby then initiated eviction proceedings in Klang Sessions Court against some of them in 1993. The workers asked me to defend them which I did. I managed to delay the inevitable eviction for many years.
Sime Darby then initiated further eviction proceedings against the workers in Shah Alam Sessions Court in 2005. Again my law firm defended them and delayed the eviction from taking place. In all this litigation I acted for about 76 workers and their families.
All this time, T Mohan’s party and their representatives in the Federal cabinet did nothing to stop the oppressive actions of Sime Darby. They were quite happy to see the homes of poor Indian estate workers bulldozed.
In 2007, Sime Darby started using more aggressive tactics and started demolishing empty houses to make the area uninhabitable to force the workers to move out. Tenaga and Syabas cut water and electricity. The area around the worker’s homes looked liked a war zone with debris and broken homes around.
Again T Mohan’s party and their representatives in the Federal cabinet did nothing to stop this oppression of poor Indian workers. Maybe they were completely helpless to do anything – I do not know. But the fact remains that nobody stopped Sime Darby.
Again the ex-workers came to see me and I filed another suit for them and got an injunction to stop these hostile actions to evict them.
All these litigation was done in the public interest and for minimal fees to defend poor estate workers from being unjustly evicted in breach of a promise of proper housing. Furthermore, Bukit Rajah is not the only group of estate workers I have defended – I have defended many others as well.
If the Pakatan Rakyat had not taken over Selangor in March 2008, I am sure that the final outcome would have been that all these poor workers estate homes would have been demolished with no certainty of alternative housing for the workers.
However after the change of government in Selangor, Sime Darby softened their stand and were prepared to negotiate. Dr Xavier in his capacity as a member of the State Executive Council facilitated the negotiations.
The negotiations concluded successfully.
The ex-workers agreed to accept the offer of a 20’ by 70’ single-story terrace house at the price of RM70,000 which when completed under the current schedule for early next year 2014 will be worth at least RM250,000.
The housing estate would also include a temple and a public hall. From the price and the value of the house, it is obvious that it was a good deal and why it was accepted by the ex-workers.
On 1st March 2009, letters of offer with details of design and specifications were accepted in writing by 76 workers. These 76 workers included one Mr Mathialakan who is also being quoted making false statements that the workers were promised to be given a 15 acre piece of land.
There was no promise by the Pakatan Selangor Government at any time to the ex-workers to give them a 15 acre piece of land. In the course of the negotiations a 15 acre piece of land belonging to Sime Darby was identified on which the houses were to be built.
The letters of offer dated 1st March 2009 ( also given in Tamil to the 76 ex-workers ) only speak of a 20’ by 70’ single storey terrace house in a housing estate. No worker including Mr Mathialakan raised a demand for a 15 acre piece of land then. This was because there had never been such a demand even from them. The worker’s demand right from the beginning was for single storey terrace houses which they finally secured. It was on this basis that we fought the litigation all the way from 1993.
The housing estate for the 76 houses and temple and the hall only required about half of the 15 acre piece of Sime Darby land to be used. It is for Sime Darby as the land owner to decide how to use the balance.
T. Mohan needs to learn more about how government works. He does not seem to understand that it is his party MIC and UMNO who can direct Sime Darby as a Federal controlled GLC what to do with the remaining 8 acres of the land. The Selangor government has no control over Sime Darby. He should direct his demands to the Prime Minister and to the leaders of his own party MIC.
I do not know where T Mohan is getting his figure of 144 workers and 144 houses from. I only acted for 76 ex-workers and their families and have secured for them these houses at the price of RM 70,000. But if ex-workers who had accepted Sime Darby’s offers between 1993 and 2008 and moved into low-cost walk-up flats for RM25,000, and NOW are not being instigated to demand a single storey terrace house for RM 70,000 like the 76 houses, that would not be right.
These 76 ex-workers and their families fought Sime Darby in court from 1993 until today. They endured great hardship inflicted on them by the current BN-UMNO-MIC government. Only these 76 families deserve the new houses.
The question T Mohan should ask his own party leaders and his BN coalition is why these 76 Bukit Rajah families were oppressed from 1993 to 2008 by them instead of pretending that this history of oppression does not exist.
