When we send the wrong guy to jail...

I am not trying to be Ali and KJ's advocate or solicitor. Neither will I dispute the decision passed by the Umno Disciplinary Board to bar the Malacca Chief Minister to contest the party deputy president post, and the warning issued to the Rembau MP.

As I wrote in the previous postings, the mode of investigation should go into details as to be fair to everybody. I even suggested for those who lodged the reports to come under scrutiny as well because their motives and integrity should be looked at.

The definition of graft and money politics, too, should be under review as it creates a lot of controversy.

The Board is not a civil court. Its a panel set by Umno to investigate any allegations made by party members and the public about any wrongdoings that may lead to what they termed as 'money politics' in the party.

However, the timing of the special meeting prompted many to think that there was indeed a conspiracy to axe Ali and to put a stop to KJ's campaign for the Pemuda chief position. The general question from the public was that, why must they come up with such a decision only a week before the party general assembly?

Why didnt it happen after the general assembly or before nominations were made? Is this going to be a pattern in future party elections? If Ali was wrong, what about others whose names were oftenly ticked as being worse than that of Ali and KJ?

Why not from time to time the Board makes announcement about their new findings, and not just wait until the decision turns into political ammunitions...

Please remember that in some civil cases, we oftenly sent the wrong guy to prison. Some of them went to the gallow just because of unjust court decisions. It took us many years later only to realise that they were innocent!

This applies well to the Disciplinary Board. Investigations must cover every aspect of it, from those who lodged the reports until the persons who became the subject of guilt.

These are my points of contention. Nothing else...

waaa... macam cakap lawyer je kau ni!

memang betul. si pengadu pun patut disiasat. ramai yang busuk hati masa nak dekat pemilihan ni. maklumlah, ada yang 'dapat', ada pulak yang 'tak dapat'.

paham-paham je laaaa...

YES. U ARE RITE BRO! I BELIEVE THOSE WHO LOGDED REPORTS AGAINST THIS PEOPLE WERE THE ONES WHO ARE NOT SATISFIED OVER SOMETHING.

MAYBE THEIR MOTIVE WAS TO TARNISH SOMEONE'S POLITICAL IMAGE AND DOOM HIM.

THE BOARD MUST LOOK INTO THIS CAREFULLY.

INVESTIGATION IS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL THE MOTIVE IS CLEAR!

apa, orang lain macam khir toyo, muhyidin, hisham dan lain-lain tu tak pakai duit ke dalam politik mereka?

saya berani potong lagi sekali la kalau diorang kata tak pernah!

Lembaga ...need to consider the various forces,steps of change not for a short term but long term.

The rising incidences recently have resulted in the erosion of confidence.

Balance approach need to be taken to ensure that its implementations will not have any implications.

The main objective of these is to egender public confidence and exibit intergrity and professionalism in Lembaga.........

bujai,
orang yang duduk dalam lembaga disiplin tu bersih sangat ke masa pegang jawatan dalam parti dan kerajaan dulu?

setahu saya, semua yang ada dalam lembaga tu pernah buat silap jugak, cuma masa tu takda jawatankuasa khas untuk siasat mereka.

kuman seberang laut kita nampak, gajah depan mata langsung tak nampak!

SUDAH LA WOI!

GUA DAH FED UP LA DENGAN POLITIK UMNO NI.

ORANG MELAYU MAKIN MISKIN, PEMIMPINNYA MAKIN KAYA DAN MAKIN GILA KUASA PULAK!

bro. sistem perundangan yang ada hari ni pun belum pasti dapat menjamin seseorang yang dituduh itu mendapat pembelaan yang adil dan saksama.

memang betul, ada waktunya kita tersilap orang dan menghantarnyake penjara dan ke tali gantung. dah banyak berlaku di seluruh dunia.

apa la salahnya lembaga disiplin menghuraikan apa sebenarnya yang dimaksudkan dengan politik wang. adakah duit peribadi yang dihulurkan untuk membantu orang lain juga dikategorikan sebagai rasuah?

saya sendiri tidak nampak huraiannya. semuanya masih samar-samar. ukuran apa yang digunakan oleh lembaga disiplin untuk menilai rasuah politik ini, tidaklah diketahui umum.

mereka bertindak sebagai mahkamah yang suka menghukum sesuka hati. tempoh rayuannya pula amat singkat, cuma tiga hari. inikah dinamakan keadilan?

umno harus meneliti semula kaedah yang digunapakai bagi mengenal pasti apa politik wang ini. jangan disebabkan hendak memelihara kepentingan seseorang, orang lain dijadikan mangsa mereka.

sampai bilakah sistem yang ada ini dibiarkan turut korup, hanya tuhan yang maha mengetahui.

pupoi, mersing said...

agaknya kes altantuya tu tersilap orang kot....

tu pasal la orang lain buat, orang lain yang kena...

sama gak macam lembaga disiplin ni. kepala rasuah dibiarkan...

its normal to send the innocent to jail as long as he's promised tons of cash when he gets out. some people are willing to do that but not the gallow of course.

if someone offers me a few million RM to be behind bars for 2 or 3 years just to cover someone else, i am more than willing.

lembaga disiplin pun amal rasuah gak!

kalau tak, takkanlah tak semena-mena adakan sidang khas untuk tembak mati ali dan orang lain!

ingat orang lain bodo ke...

TEBRAU said...

biasa la pak!

nak tembak rusa, pelanduk yang kena!

silap sendiri tak nampak, asyik nak cari silap orang lain je.

beratus-ratus tuduhan yang dibuat terhadap orang lain diketepikan begitu saja.,

saja je diorang ni nak buat gempak seminggu sebelum perhimpunan agung. biarlah nampak buat keje sikit.

padahal, kalau nak siasat, siasat je paklah, najib dan bini dia, mat taib dan yang lain-lain. diorang tak guna wang ke?

badigol betul la umno ni!

kerengge said...

this is what we described as opening up an easy passage for muhyidin. najib actually wants him as his deputy after taking over from paklah. many people are saying it. tyson was left out because they want to make it looks like the democracy is being upheld, allowing him to contest against muhyidin.

why are malaysians so stupid to swallow and allow this to happen?

i agree with zaid that ali was made a scapegoat by umno top guns.

the timing of the special meeting, too was beyong comprehension.

its a political game... it was!

GEMBO-GEMBO said...

tengok je la lepaas ni umno akan pecah belah dan jadi makin lemah untuk hadapi pilihanraya umum akan datang.

aku casdangkan ali tubuh parti baru je....

Ali can take it to court since the rules of natural justice must prevail even for political bodies,

But, dare he?

And is it not strange that the dickhead of Msian Assoc for Cows and Cars says they can't open a file on Ali since it involves party 'ethical' issues. He can fimd 'elements of abuse' where it suits him but not where corruption is confirmed and is clearly against the Law of the Land?

One nation, 2 systems?
