Australia deports ethnic Indian doctor to Malaysia

A Malaysian ethnic Indian doctor, who is reportedly responsible for the deaths of two prostitutes, has been deported by Australia.

Australia’s Immigration Minister Scott Morrison ordered Dr Suresh Nair’s deportation after the latter was released on parole on July 31, having served a four-year jail sentence for manslaughter and supplying cocaine, media reports said here.

The Malaysian-born doctor, who had Australian permanent residency, was allowed to continue working at a private hospital in Sydney despite his cocaine and sex addiction.

This resulted in several botched surgeries, which left some of his patients worse off, reports said.

Nair was jailed in 2011 for the manslaughter of 22-year- old escort Domingues Zaupa, who suffered a cocaine overdose during an orgy at the surgeon’s Sydney apartment in 2009.

He also pleaded guilty to supplying cocaine, which killed sex worker Victoria McIntyre, 23, at his apartment.

Terrorism >>>

PM Najib's stance against ISIS is flip-flop again.

PM Najib did praise ISIS terrorists are “pahlawan” and unstoppable by Iraqi army.

He only realized ISIS is a terrorist group after they were planning to blow up Carlsberg factory, Bars and non-Muslim temples in Malaysia.

Najib finally condemns ISIS

James Sivalingam

The Prime Minister strongly criticises the militant group for committing atrocities in the name of Islam.

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak has denounced the actions of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants.

In a press statement today, Najib declared, “Malaysia strongly condemns the actions of the Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq.

“We are deeply saddened by the crimes committed in the name of Islam, a religion of peace.

“We deplore those responsible, and call on the international community to act in concert to prevent further violence.”

The statement comes after dozens of Muslim leaders around the world have denounced the actions of ISIS in recent months, including Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who said ISIS was “embarrassing” to Islam.

ISIS, a splinter group of Al-Qaeda, has made huge military gains in Northern Syria and Iraq, brutally slaughtering civilians along the way.

Najib said, “The actions of the Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq are counter to our faith, our culture and our common humanity.

“They are against the teachings of the Prophet, a man of peace and moderation, and against Islamic law, which prizes the protection of life above all.

“We must fight extremism with moderation, and work to rebuild the bonds between communities shattered by war.”

Foreign worker's time bomb finally exploded, a factory in Johor was burned down.

I do not symphatize those factories torched down by the foreign workers. They 100% reserved for it because I have said it foreign workers are time bomb many years ago.

Selangor >>>

Do not let Selangor Sultan to decide, the party represents people must decide who is MB

Tukar Khalid-Azizah

The sultan must accept the candidate with the majority support of ADUN, and not for him to decide from a pool of candidates.

Do not let the sultan stands above the constitution and make him the absolute ruler.

Selangor MB crisis: Sultan defers Khalid’s resignation, wants more than two names

by rahmah ghazali AND akil yunus

SHAH ALAM: Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah has requested the Pakatan Rakyat component parties to submit more than two names each for consideration for the post of mentri besar.

Speaking to reporters here Tuesday, Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim (pic) said the Sultan had informed him as such after seeking an audience with him at the Palace.

He also said that he had submitted his resignation letter but the Sultan had deferred acceptance of it until a suitable replacement could be named.

“To ensure political stability in Selangor, I have indicated my intention to resign to the Sultan. However, the Sultan has delayed the acceptance of my letter until the next mentri besar is named,” he said.

Khalid said the Sultan had requested for each component party to nominate at least two names each.

“This would ease the decision-making process for the Sultan in selecting whoever he deems most qualified.

“This selection process follows convention,” he said.

Khalid had met with the Sultan earlier Tuesday to seek advice about the next step forward in the mentri besar crisis.

PKR sacked Khalid on Aug 9 after he failed to show up at a disciplinary committee hearing over allegations directed at him.

PAS, which had initially supported Khalid as mentri besar, retracted its backing and instead, went along with its Pakatan Rakyat allies in proposing Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

The party also nominated Bukit Antarabangsa assemblyman and PKR deputy president Azmin Ali as the second candidate for the mentri besar post.

Sultan Sharafuddin, who had left for an overseas trip on Aug 15, had requested that Khalid refrain from making any statements on his position until after the Ruler returned on Aug 27.

However, the Sultan cut short his trip and returned last Saturday.

GDP >>>

Malaysian Insider's posers to achieving high-income status by 2020

I have highlighted in media before about Gini Coefficient is totally missing from the economic planning in Malaysia.

What is the point if 1% of Malaysians control 40% of nation wealth?

World bank’s high-income GDP is a moving target and achieving USD15,000 by 2020 is not guarantee that Malaysia will join the high-income club.

World Bank high-income economy

The reality and hyperbole of high-income Malaysia by 2020

COMMENTARY BY THE MALAYSIAN INSIDER

Published: 24 August 2014

Government efficiency agency chief Datuk Seri Idris Jala had said yesterday that the gross national income per capita had been climbing steadily. – The Malaysian Insider file pic, August 24, 2014.Government efficiency agency chief Datuk Seri Idris Jala had said yesterday that the gross national income per capita had been climbing steadily. – The Malaysian Insider file pic, August 24, 2014.According to government efficiency agency chief Datuk Seri Idris Jala, Malaysia is on track to achieve its high-income target of US$15,000 (RM47,414) by 2020, if not sooner, as a result of the policies under the National Transformation Programme (NTP).

That is like Manchester United football team coach Louis Van Gaal predicting his team will win the English Premier League this year as a result of his player buys and tactics.

Or for that matter, Malaysia saying its football team will make it to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Those are really targets, not reality until it happens. But Senator Jala, who heads the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu), is fond of taking numbers to insist the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) and Government Transformation Programme (GTP) is working to plan.

Jala said yesterday gross national income per capita had climbed steadily from US$7,059 (RM22,313) in 2009 to US$10,060 (RM31,799) in 2013, representing a 42.5% growth during the period.

In a statement yesterday, he said since the launch of the ETP in 2010, the areas under the National Key Results Area (NKRA) have generated a total of 1.3 million additional employment opportunities, where the ETP targets to create 3.3 million new jobs by 2020.

One would like to believe him. After all, under his leadership, flag carrier Malaysia Airlines booked profits but flew back into red ink after he left. Why? Didn’t his policies stick and work for the national airline?

Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed also said approved pipeline investment has been increasing year-on-year since 2010, surpassing the government’s annual investment target of RM148 billion under the 10th Malaysia Plan.

In 2011, approved investment stood at RM154.6 billion; in 2012, RM167.8 billion; and in 2013, RM216.5 billion.

That should be good news for many of us but it remains as headline figures. The reality on the ground is that not many Malaysians are having a share of the wealth or a rise in incomes.

Putrajaya is using the assumption that once US$15,000 is achieved as per capita income, Malaysia will be a high income nation. As simple as that? But per capita income is not a reliable indicator as only 30% of per capita income counts as income, the rest are booked as profits.

After all, the statistics are just talking about per capita income, which is different from real income. For example, Forbes reported last March that in a year in which a weakening ringgit, a slowing economy and a lacklustre stock market hurt many of Malaysia’s richest, Tan Sri Quek Leng Chan managed to add US$1.6 billion to his kitty, more than anyone else.

Malaysia also now boasts 18 billionaires. Maybe that is a result of the ETP, but not the pittance earned by a majority of the 30 million Malaysians.

Bombastic figures will not get Malaysia to become a high-income economy. It takes hard work and real policies such as cutting our dependence on foreign workers.

After all, how many of the 1.3 million employment opportunities are taken up by locals, and how many by foreigners? How many are white-collar and how many blue-collar jobs?

How can Malaysia even talk about a high income economy when a significant percentage of the local workforce cannot make ends meet and do not appear to have the capability of doing so anytime soon.

We have soup kitchens in the cities and programmes for affordable housing. We have direct cash aid. How does that gel with Malaysia well on its way to a high income nation status by 2020?

That is why even though the government announced the 6.4% growth in the last quarter, it had little impact on the wellbeing of ordinary Malaysians. It is just a statistic, a headline figure and nothing more.

Jala and Pemandu’s time has been punctuated by fantastic headline numbers and hyperbole but both do not reflect the real situation on the ground.

Malaysia is six years away from 2020 and the target for a high-income nation. Repeating it ad nauseam won’t help the cause or the people who don’t feel the money that Putrajaya says is in our pockets.

The reality for most Malaysians is Malaysia might just be a higher-cost nation by 2020 with perhaps a few more billionaires to make sure the hyperbole per capita figure looks just right. – August 24, 2014.
