Raja Petra Is Almost Homeless In London

By Satu Hala | SUNDAY, 21 NOVEMBER 2010

This news was received from a friend who I can say is quite influential via a phone call…

According to this friend, Raja Petra Kamarudin or RPK is now said to have almost reached the status of being ‘homeless’ in London.

He has yet to be evacuated or such, but talks are that his unpaid rent has mounted although for how long I’m not sure…

This stemmed from the declining sponsorship of two parties, namely Kalimullah Hassan and Datuk Soh Chee Wen (one of Anwar Ibrahim’s financial backers).

The dough from Kalimullah is still on the roll…but the money coming from Anwar has been halted since RPK has openly showed his tendency to criticize Anwar recently…especially following the onslaught of internal turmoil in Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s election…Also, RPK’s writings have ceased having an impact on society.

“Anwar wants to tame RPK again,” according to this friend.

What is troubling now is that money from one side is not enough. London ain’t cheap. There’re no street stalls like KL, so of course the expenses are high.

Obviously RPK is not the type to cook at home…he only dines at places where meals are infused with wine, and this is not counting in the price of a bottle of wine or alcohol to wash down his food. Also not forgetting the tabs on his drinks during his free time…so by now there should be a good understanding of what state he is in.

It is said that RPK now badly wants to go home…but he is also afraid of any action that would be taken against him…although that could only be his assumption…it is unlikely that any action would be taken against him…

But what is certain, if Anwar continues to deny him the financial aid and RPK himself doesn’t want to go home…he has a choice of either being a waiter in London or be a homeless bum on the streets there like a stray dog. Maybe that is the best punishment for someone who has sinned a lot towards others.

And maybe this writer’s article previously was accurate…it is wise for RPK to return to Malaysia and kneel and seek forgiveness from Najib and his family for all the slandering before this.

Come home RPK…or be prepared to be a wandering stray dog over there.

RPK free but likely to remain in exile

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's top blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin (RPK), who fled the country after being held under security laws in 2008, is free to return after a detention order lapsed, his lawyer said today.
However, the founder of the popular Malaysia Today website, which has outraged top leaders with its stream of critical stories, is unlikely to leave his self-imposed exile in Britain for fear of fresh charges, he said.


"This order has lapsed but it does not stop the authorities from seeking my client's detention on other grounds should he return," said lawyer Jadadish Chandra.

The mystery of the missing initial report.


In 2008, the police raided my house to look for the PUSRAWI medical report, which Malaysia Today published and which debunks Saiful Bukhari Azlan’s allegation that Anwar Ibrahim sodomised him. I was also brought in for interrogation with regards to that report. Two years on and that medical report is now said to be missing and the Prosecution declares it is not aware of such a report. Well, maybe we can republish it for the sake of the Prosecution.
THE CORRIDORS OF POWER
Raja Petra Kamarudin
Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has charged that the prosecution into his sodomy case had lied over the existence of an initial preliminary report after the three doctors had examined Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
Solicitor-general II Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden had admitted in court he did not know of the initial report.
However, the testimony of Dr Mohd Razali Ibrahim today showed there is an initial report, which was made before the July 13 full report which was tendered as evidence.
“This showed the prosecution had lied and supports our arguments that it should have been supplied to us before the trial. We do not want to hold up the trial but it seems they (the prosecution) are,” he said. -- Malaysiakini

RPK updates from Facebook.





Caption: 
On 8th October 2010, Mat Zain bin Ibrahim wrote a 20-page open letter that blows the lid on many issues. You have to read this letter to believe it. The contents puts to rest any doubts you may have on what Malaysia Today has revealed over these last six years. It also fingers the AG and recently retired IGP. This revelation is astounding by any standards and in any other country this would be enough to force the government to resign

The HARDtalk program is now off - RPK too Hot to be on the air.

Bridget Osborne from the BBC just called to inform Raja Petra Kamarudin that the program scheduled for 3.00pm, Wednesday, 1st September 2010, has been cancelled.

Bridget said that BBC’s lawyers advised them not to proceed with the program as this would upset the Malaysian government and may even expose the BBC to legal action.

Bridget added that the questions they would delve into, which would be very sensitive in nature and critical of the government, would run foul of the Malaysian government.

The fact that the program would be accessible in Malaysia, said Bridget, makes this a problem for the BBC.
 
It looks like RPK is too hot even for HARDtalk and BBC said it is a rare occasion that they have had to drop a program.

Then and now: the Ezam story


Ezam said they went to great lengths to persuade him to change sides. When they failed, they compromised by agreeing that he remains in the opposition as long as he agreed to abandon Anwar. When they failed to also do this, he was packed off to Kamunting to start serving his two-year detention.
NO HOLDS BARRED  |  Raja Petra Kamarudin -
The ex-PKR Youth Leader, Ezam Mohd Nor, has been going round the country giving ceramahs during the many by-elections. At these ceramahs, he whacked Anwar Ibrahim and claimed that he knows all sorts of secrets about Anwar.
Ezam used to say he had six boxes of secrets about Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamd in his safekeeping and that one day he would reveal all these secrets.
That was more than ten years ago and until today we have not seen a single piece of paper from those six boxes.
Yesterday, it was announced that Ezam is now a Senator. This is probably his reward for all the Anwar-bashing that he had done.
Of late, what Ezam has been saying contradicts what he said back in the days before he left PKR to join Umno. Maybe you can read what he said on 27 June 2003 (below) and compare what he said then to what he is saying today.
Maybe Ezam thought Malaysians have short memories.
*************************************************
Palanivel, Ezam and 2 others to be made Senators - The Star, 28 April 2010
MIC deputy president Datuk G. Palanivel is among four people who will be made Senators.
The others are former PKR youth chief Ezam Mohd Nor, Rahim and Co executive chairman Datuk Abdul Rahim Abdul Rahman and Pagoh Wanita Umno chief Noriah Mahat.
They will take their oath at the Dewan Negara before Senate president Tan Sri Abu Zahar Ujang on Monday. –The Star, 28 April 2010
*************************************************
Umno tried to buy Ezam over  -   Free Anwar Campaign, 27 June 2003
The National Justice Party Youth Leader, Ezam Mohd Nor, has admitted that Umno sent him feelers while he was in prison.
Speaking to a crowd of about 500 supporters at the home of party President, Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Ezam said, first they separated him from the rest of the Reformasi Six so that they could get him alone. Once he was isolated from the rest, they worked on him to try to woo him over.
Ezam said he was quite surprised at the speed his Official Secrets Act (OSA) trial developed. Ezam was then already under Internal Security Act (ISA) detention in the Kamunting Detention Camp together with Saari Sungib, Tian Chua, Dr Badrulamin Bahron, Lokman Noor Adam and Hishamuddin Rais.
Once the conviction was secured, Ezam was immediately transferred to the Kajang Prison to start serving his two-year jail sentence, the first time in the 43-year history of the ISA that a detainee had to simultaneously serve both an ISA detention and a jail term.
Then Ezam realised why they had hurriedly separated him from the rest for, once he was isolated, Umno made its move to try to woo him over.
Ezam said he received all sorts of approaches from Umno asking him to switch camps and abandon his “struggle to free Anwar Ibrahim from jail”.
In fact, said Ezam, his entire initial 60-day detention under the ISA, before he was sent to Kamunting, was centred on Anwar Ibrahim and not once was he interrogated about his alleged “crimes”.
Ezam and nine other party leaders and Reformasi activists were detained in April 2001 for allegedly being a threat to national security. According to the official statement released by the government, they had conspired to topple the government through violent and militant means and were involved in a plot to bring in bombs, guns, grenade launchers and Molotov Cocktails.
However, the entire 60 days interrogation was on party matters and the police tried to convince Ezam to abandon his struggle and rejoin Umno. After failing to woo him over, the police finally tried to persuade Ezam to just abandon Anwar Ibrahim.
Ezam said, the police told him he could remain in the National Justice Party and continue to oppose the government. However, he must not mention Anwar’s name in any of his speeches. In short, Ezam may continue his opposition party activities but these should not include the struggle to free Anwar.
Ezam also said they tried to convince him that Anwar was in fact guilty of all the sexual crimes he was alleged to have committed and that the police had all the evidence to support these charges.
“Until the last day of my 60-day detention the police never once produced this evidence,” said Ezam.
“When I asked them on the last day of my detention, the day before I was transferred to Kamunting, where this so-called evidence was, they replied that it was of no use showing me this evidence as I would not believe it anyway.”
Ezam said they went to great lengths to persuade him to change sides. When they failed, they compromised by agreeing that he remains in the opposition as long as he agreed to abandon Anwar. When they failed to also do this, he was packed off to Kamunting to start serving his two-year detention.
Ezam said rumours are rife that he is in the midst of making a deal with Umno. “Why should I do this now?” asked Ezam.
“If I want to this, why do this now? I should have done it at the early stages of my detention. Why should I suffer the two year detention and the OSA conviction where I have already served 10 months of my 16-month jail term?”
Ezam said he took a great risk by applying for bail.
“I have already served 10 months of my conviction,” explained Ezam.
“No doubt I was sentenced to two years jail. However, after a one-third remission, I only need to serve 16 months of this sentence.”
“My lawyers were surprised when I told them I would like to apply for bail. They cautioned me that if I fail in my appeal, the ten months I have already served would not be taken into consideration and I would have to start serving the 16 months jail sentence all over again.”
“I would therefore lose these 10 months. But, as a politician, this is the risk I have to take,” Ezam said to the crowd that broke out into thunderous applause.
Ezam then revealed that his release and that of the other five was due to a power struggle within Umno.
“It is because of the serious power struggle within Umno that I and my five comrades were released.”
“One group in Umno was opposed to our release. However, there was another group that wanted us released.”
It is said that Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad was the one behind their release while the Abdullah Ahmad Badawi camp tried to block their release.
These next four months are very critical to Umno as Dr Mahathir would be leaving office in October with Abdullah supposed to take over. The last thing Abdullah wants is the Reformasi Six back in circulation where they could do much damage to Umno that is yet to settle the succession issue.
Talk amongst the Umno circles is that Dr Mahathir wants the Reformasi Six to “stir the pot” to put pressure on the party. It is hoped that this may then be too much for Abdullah to handle and there would be serious doubts raised as to whether he would be able to take over from Dr Mahathir.
For all intents and purposes, say the sources within Umno, the Reformasi Six were released so that they could become the bogeymen. Umno would then question whether Abdullah is strong enough to fend off the opposition onslaught or should Dr Mahathir stay on to save Umno.
Whatever theories one may subscribe to, the immediate and unconditional release of the Reformasi Six took everyone by surprise, the Reformasi Six included. No doubt, there was much pressure from the International community, foreign governments and Malaysia’s Human Rights Commission to release them. In fact, even the Kamunting Review Board and the Federal Court ruled that their detentions are illegal, mala fide and violated the constitution. However, it cannot be discounted that Umno’s internal affairs also had a bearing on their release.
“We were not only surprised that we were released, but more surprised that our release was unconditional,” said Ezam. “This is the first time in the history of the ISA that detainees have been released without conditions attached.” – Free Anwar Campaign, 27 June 2003

Zahrain, let’s talk about this instead

Bayan Baru Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim said in Parliament that there was a link between online newspaper Malaysiakini and Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK)'s news portal with the opposition and urged the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission to probe into it. -- Bernama

THE CORRIDORS OF POWER  |  Raja Petra Kamarudin -18 Match 2010

Next, Zahrain fired away at news portal Malaysiakini and controversial blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin for working "hand in glove" with PR to perform character assassination against "anyone that is a stumbling block to their dream of snatching Putrajaya at all costs".

Zahrain claimed that Raja Petra was now in London, being "protected" in luxury dwellings belonging to a senior leader of PKR, prompting N Gobalakrishnan (Padang Serai - PKR) to dare Zahrain to name the person. (Read the full report by The Edge below).

*************************************************
It looks like the Malaysian Parliament has been ‘hot’ the last few days. However, instead of debating issues of national importance, like how the voters hope that the Members of Parliament they voted into office would do, they discuss matters NOT of national importance -- like Malaysiakini and Malaysia Today and where RPK is currently living.

I would caution MP Zahrain of spending too much of Parliament’s time discussing me. There is a danger that some people might misinterpret this as placing me in the ranks of a ‘national treasure’, further resulting in the danger of inflating my ego. Now, we do not want that do we, surely? As it is, I am already a stubborn and incorrigible bastard. Are you trying to turn me into an egoistical, stubborn, incorrigible bastard?

What MP Zahrain and Parliament should do instead is to discuss the links, relationship or association between businessmen and those who walk in the corridors of power. Now THAT is a bad link. That link smells of corruption, abuse of power and conflict of interest.

Even if it is true that Malaysiakini and Malaysia Today work in concert (which they do not) and even if it is true that both Malaysiakini and Malaysia Today are linked to the opposition (which they are not), so what? What is wrong with that? Have any laws been broken because of this so-called link? What is illegal in that? Have you not heard of freedom of association as enshrined in the Federal Constitution of Malaysia?

Now, if the government forbids Internal Security Act detainees from performing their Friday prayers within the confines of the detention camp, like what is happening now, then that is illegal. Then we can say that laws have been broken. And the fact that the Perak Mufti scolded the ISA detainees who insisted on performing their Friday prayers does not mean that the laws have not been broken. I thought Muslims are not allowed to amend God’s laws? Or have I gone to the wrong religious class?

So, Zahrain, bring that matter up in Parliament and get the government to clarify the matter. Also ask Parliament why no action was taken about the police report I made in the Sentul Police Station against the authorities for forbidding the ISA detainees from performing their Friday prayers. They are not asking to be allowed to walk to the mosque outside the detention camp. They just want to do their prayers within the detention camp. Yet that is not allowed. Islam konon! Podah!

And speak to Ibrahim Ali. Ibrahim Ali’s PERKASA is upset about the Chinese being given all the contracts and that none are going to the Malays. I am sure you too share this ‘Umno mentality’. After all, you too were denied the golf club contract in Penang, which should have rightfully been given to you since you are Malay. But the Chinese Chief Minister of Penang refused to give the contract to your RM2 company, which was formed only a couple of months before the tender, on the lame excuse that your company is dormant and therefore has no experience in that business.

Another contract that was given to the Chinese was the RM100 million turnkey hospital project in Kuala Lipis in Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s home state of Pahang. The company that got the project is George Kent (Malaysia) Berhad (see below). George Kent is owned by Tan Sri Tan Kay Hock, Najib’s golf buddy whom Malaysia Today wrote about earlier.

Was it right for the Prime Minister to give a huge contract worth RM100 million to his golf buddy? Is it not worse when you consider that George Kent does not have any experience or track record in the hospital turnkey business (just like your RM2 dormant company in Penang)? And what will Ibrahim Ali and his PERKASA say when they find out about this? I am sure Ibrahim Ali is already planning his next protest demonstration in front of Najib’s office even as you read this. And are not demonstrations ‘not Malay culture’, as Umno says?
 
Yes, Zahrain, there are links and there are links. Links meant to fight evil (nahi munkar) are mulia (noble) in the eyes of Islam. Links to rip off the rakyat’s money are evil in the eyes of Islam.

Taubat, Zahrain taubat (repent). You speak like the reincarnation of satan. You uphold evil and you fight against good. That is opposite to amar maaruf, nahi munkar. That is fuel for the fire of hell. Islam konon! Podah!

Zahrain takes aim at Anwar's influence abroad
Written by Chua Sue-Ann, The Edge

Independent Bayan Baru member of parliament (MP) Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim on Thursday, March 18, persisted with his attacks against opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, claiming that Anwar had "monopolised" the flow of information to the international scene.

Zahrain, who today resumed his debate on the royal address, claimed that a special assistant to Anwar (Permatang Pauh - PKR) had sought the cancellation of a forum organised by the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington DC.

"This is because Permatang Pauh [Anwar] has, all along, monopolised any meeting with the US and determined what type of information can be transmitted to the US administration," Zahrain told the Dewan Rakyat today.

Zahrain said he was informed of the matter by the event's organiser when the former recently went to Washington DC as part of a Malaysian parliamentarians' delegation.

The CSIS forum on Feb 24 heard speeches from Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz (Padang Rengas - BN), Attorney-General Tan Seri Abdul Gani Patail and former Chief Justicec Tun Abdul Hamid Mohamed.

Zahrain, who was formerly PKR's Penang chief, then reprimanded the Barisan Nasional (BN) government and the diplomatic corp for "failing" to effectively explain the situation in Malaysia to the international stage.

"In my view, Pakatan Rakyat [PR] leaders are able to incite other countries to hate our country due to the weaknesses and failures of the government to seriously and systematically address the problem," he said.

Zahrain added that, while some ambassadors and diplomats may be quite professional in their work, they would sometimes "overlook the political importance and impact of an issue" to the country.

The fiesty newly independent MP then proposed that experienced politicians be appointed as ambassadors to "critical countries" including the UK, Australia, Turkey and the Middle East.

Zahrain also praised Nazri and and Malaysia's ambassador to the US Datuk Jamaluddin Jarjis (Rompin - BN) for their "succesful efforts" in breaking the opposition's "political mask".

The former PKR man was resuming his tirade against PR after he raised the temperature of the House yesterday when he revealed how he had been "fooled" into believing that PR would take over the federal government from BN on Sept 16, 2008.

Anwar's ongoing sodomy trial had intensified international attention and criticisms against Malaysia, with US Senator John Kerry and some 50 Australian MPs speaking up for Anwar's legal rights in the criminal trial.

Anwar was absent from parliament today as he is currently in London for meetings and lectures.

During his speech today, Zahrain also picked on Anwar's special assistant Aasil Kazi Ahmad, whom Zahrain said was an US-born Pakistani and asked the home ministry to "take stern action to expel such a treacherous character".

Next, Zahrain fired away at news portal Malaysiakini and controversial blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin for working "hand in glove" with PR to perform character assassination against "anyone that is a stumbling block to their dream of snatching Putrajaya at all costs".

Zahrain claimed that Raja Petra was now in London, being "protected" in luxury dwellings belonging to a senior leader of PKR, prompting N Gobalakrishnan (Padang Serai - PKR) to dare Zahrain to name the person.

At this juncture, Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud (Kota Raja - PAS) lashed out at Zahrain for wasting the Dewan Rakyat's time with his allegations.

"This is similar to when husband and wife divorce, but when they were married, it was all beautiful. We have many issues to raise here. Speaker, we have wasted enough time. Why is it necessary for Bayan Baru to repeat what he said?

"[He says] this side, that side has spin doctors, this side and that side has hired tentera upahan [mercenaries]. This is politics. You [Zahrain] point one finger at Permatang Pauh (Anwar), but there are three more fingers pointing back at you," Siti Mariah said in an increasingly exasperated tone.

Datuk Mohamad Aziz (Sri Gading - BN) then told Siti Mariah that she should be thankful to Zahrain for revealing the latter's story.
