Zarina Anjoulie sued by businessman

P/s : I dont know what happen nowadays. There are so many female artists that living beyond their means. No wonder people says that they have sugardaddy.

Zarina Anjoulie disaman ahli perniagaan

KUALA LUMPUR: A businessman is suing controversial actress Zarina Anjoulie Lavocah Mohd Fahizul (pic) and five others for alleged negligence and fraud over a luxury car.

Kevin Shah Kadar Shah, 33, said that his father, deceased Kadar Shah Sulaiman had bought a used car – BMW 3201 Limousine RHD – and registered the vehicle under his (Kadar) name on May 17, 2010.

He said that his businessman father had obtained a facility from the Public Islamic Bank Bhd and signed an agreement with it to finance the purchase of the car.

Kevin said that his father had lent his car, with the number plate of WTN 8850, to Zarina – who was Kadar’s friend- for her daily use.

He said that his father had passed away on Nov 19, 2011 but Zarina, who had acted in television dramas such as Anak Pontianak, as well as in films such as Ular and Khon Malay, did not take any initiative to return the car to his family.

However, he claimed that the car was repossessed by the bank later although he had settled its outstanding payments.

Kevin said he was shocked to find out later that the car had a different registration plate number – BLP 8858.

He said that a search with the Transport Ministry last year revealed that his father was registered as owner of both plate numbers.

Upon sending a letter to the ministry through his lawyer to get a clarification, he said that it informed him that his father was registered as the owner of a motorcycle with the plate number WTN 8850 and owner of the car with the plate number BLP 8858.

He claimed that his father had never consented to any parties to apply to the Selangor Road Transport department director to change the registration plate number of his car.

Kevin claimed that his father had never issued a letter dated Feb 28, 2011 to the bank, and that his signature on the letter had been forged by despatch clerk Salleh Idris or Zarina or any parties without his consent.

He had named the Selangor Road Transport department director, Transport Ministry, Malaysian Government, Zarina, Salleh and Public Islamic Bank Bhd as defendants in his lawsuit.

Speaking to reporters here on Monday, Federal Counsel Nur Aqilah Ishak said that High Court judge Justice Hue Siew Kheng had set April 7 to hear four applications.

“Kevin is applying to add new parties in the suit and amend his statement of claim.

“Salleh is applying to strike out the suit while the plaintiff is also seeking to get a chemist and a forensic report as well as various documents to verify over his father’s handwriting,” she added.

Kevin’s lawyer J. Jeev Anand said that a copy of the claim had been served to the actress’ last known address but Zarina had failed to appoint her lawyer or turn up in court. Lawyer Y.K.Leong confirmed on the identity of Salleh.

In the suit filed on Nov 12 last year, Kevin, who is the administrator of his father’s assets, is seeking for damages and a declaration that his father was the rightful owner of the car.

Bukit Bintang new gangster take over

Arab Gangster trying to take over Bukit Bintang

P/s : This could happen to Sabah also if no concrete action taken by the Government. One day the local will not be able to do business because the Pakistan already take over all the business. 

 

Arch to the Arab Street near Bukit Bintang

This is an article quote from The Star Online

ACCORDING to Metro Ahad, Middle Eastern gangsters are exerting control over the streets of Bukit Bintang, taking over from Malaysian triads.

Its front page carried stories of these foreign gangsters who had become responsible for the social ills in the area, which is now also known among them as “Ain Arabia” (Arab Street).

The gangsters have reportedly taken over from their local counterparts, especially around business premises by the main road.

A taxi driver, known only as Alim, told the daily that some of the gangsters, most of whom arrived as tourists, were involved in prostitution and drugs.

He claimed to have shuttled Middle Eastern prostitutes to and from various hotels in Bukit Bintang, adding that they usually worked at nightclubs and that their customers were mostly Middle Easterners.

It was reported that the gangsters and prostitutes usually convened in nightclubs in the area.

A journalist, who went undercover at one of the nightclubs, discovered that the services of a Middle Eastern prostitute ranged from RM600 onwards a night.

A prostitute told him that she would not stay in Malaysia for more than three months at a time, but frequently flew here from her home country of Yemen.

H1N1 ALERT IN LIKAS WOMEN AND CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL
 

This is a copy of the news report from New Straits Times.

KOTA KINABALU: SABAH health authorities are taking the highest precautions to prevent the spread of influenza A (H1N1) following the recent detection of seven cases in a hospital here.

The patients, five of whom are children, at Likas Women and Children’s Hospital here are reportedly recovering well at press time.

State Health Department director Dr Christina Rundi said anti-viral drugs had been administered to the patients while 24 others were screened after they were believed to have been at risk of being exposed to the virus.

“The ward has been disinfected while an operation centre was opened on Tuesday to control the situation.

“Staff have been instructed to take leave if they are sick and increase hygiene practices, including proper hand-washing and wearing face masks.”

She said the hospital had also started limiting visitors.

Health education has been conducted for the public to inform them on how to identify symptoms which include flu, fever, sore throat, diarrhoea and body ache. They were also taught preventive measures, and to seek immediate treatment.

Influenze A is contagious via respiratory droplets, with senior citizens, children younger than 5, pregnant women, and people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions being especially vulnerable.

Sabah reported 944 infections during a global pandemic in 2009, 145 in 2010, 26 in 2011, and six last year.

Besides the seven in hospital, another case was reported recently in Sandakan, bringing the total number of cases so far this year to eight.

At press time, the source of infection has yet to be identified.

Sources said the first case to be identified at the Likas hospital was a child who was warded with kidney problems.

PAM called to tighten the building code

Tighten the building code-PAM

The article below is related to the current accident that happen at Asiacity at the end of January where a Myvi accidentally fall from fourth floor to the ground floor.

Myvi jatuh dari tingkat 4

Kota Kinabalu: Persatuan Arkitek Malaysia (PAM) Sabah Chapter has called on the local authority to tighten the building code to ensure all parapet walls are adequately and structurally reinforced.

Its Chairman Victor Wong said the building code must be enforced whether the parapet walls are at the car park levels or at the balconies since “un-reinforced” parapet walls can be highly dangerous when accidents occur.

He was commenting on the incident at Star City on Jan 30 where a man lost control of his vehicle while reversing and crashing straight onto the “parapet” wall, before plunging four storeys down to the ground.

He said under the existing building by-laws, there was no explicit requirement for all the parapet walls to be reinforced structurally.

“As a standard practice, stiffeners are always being specified by the professionals to ensure that the parapet walls are generally safe to be used. However, these basic stiffeners will not be strong enough to withhold the impact of a crashing car,” he said.

According to Wong, the worrying trend was that with so many condominium projects under construction in the State Capital and other parts of Sabah, more car parks were being stacked vertically to satisfy the car parking requirement within the limited sizes of the building lot.

Hence, similar accidents such as the one reported were likely to recur if the safety issue on the parapet wall design was not tackled promptly by both the authorities and professionals.

Mass conversion of Sabahan Natives to Islam is valid

This is an article from Daily Express. I hope Sabahan natives will be more careful when someone offer money. We will never know what is their true intention.

Kota Kinabalu: Outgoing Sabah Islamic Affairs Department (Jheains) Director Datuk Amri A. Suratman (pic) said Tuesday that the recent mass conversion of Christian natives to Islam in Pitas is valid under Islamic law, although the manner in which it was carried out is under investigation.

Amri said only the Syariah Court can now cancel or retain the new converts’ religion status.

He said Jheains had investigated the case involving 74 people from remote villages in Pitas in a ceremony held at the district mosque on Jan. 1, following allegations that it was carried out in a questionable manner.

“We are looking at the matter from two angles, one from the angle of Islamic law and the other, the manner in which the ceremony was organised.

“Their conversion from the angle of Islamic law is valid but the manner it was organised, we are leaving it to the police. I understand a police report had been made on the ceremony,” he said.

Amri said not all the villagers converted to Islam that day, but the others did when they recited the Dua Kalimah Syahadah.

It was reported that several villagers lodged a police report on the conversion ceremony, claiming they were cheated into doing so in exchange for receiving RM100 for adults and RM50 for children on Jan. 7. It is understood that they travelled for hours to town to receive the aid which was originally meant to be RM800.

Amri denied Jheains had masterminded the ceremony. According to a web portal, the effort was made by a Selangor-based non-governmental organisation, Yayasan Ikhlas, which claimed to have raised about RM11,000 to be given away as contribution to the “Saudara baru” (new brothers and sisters).

“If there is any element of cheating or criminality we are leaving it to the police,” he said.

Although the conversion was conducted by Jheains officers, Amri said the officers had to be certain before people could be converted.

“Those who converted through Islamic law, before it is done, we need to be clear that their intention is genuine and voluntary. They need to recite the Dua Kalimah Syahadah and accept Islam with an open heart.”

He said the new converts have to attend courses and the Sabah Islamic Council (Muis) has a financial scheme to support them for this. “Once converted, the coordinating Jheains officer will send their particulars to the Sabah Tithe Centre, which will later provide them the allocation to attend the courses.

“We will give it to them once we receive their registration,” he said.

Amri said there are many NGOs in Sabah doing their outreach programmes to recruit new converts but advised them to coordinate their activities with Jheains.

“As-a-matter-of-fact we encourage them but we want these NGOs to coordinate their work with Jheains officers placed in each district,” he said. Amri has been transferred to the Chief Minister’s Department on promotion and is replaced by Abdul Halim Nayan, the former Natural Resources Department Secretary.

Two Sabahans sue Home Ministry over Herald seizure

Kes mahkamah
 

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 25 – Two Sabahans are taking the Home Ministry to court for confiscating 2,000 copies of a Catholic paper at Kota Kinabalu last October, adding to a growing series of legal battles among Malaysia’s Christian minority for the right to practise their faith freely.

Activist Daniel John Jambun and lawyer Marcel Jude Joseph, who are both Roman Catholics, filed an application for leave at the Kota Kinabalu High Court yesterday for a judicial review against the Home Ministry’s seizure of a shipment of the Herald at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport on October 25 last year.

“We don’t want this to happen again in future,” Jambun told The Malay Mail Online when contacted today.

The Home Ministry subsequently released the consignment on October 27, Jambun said, but added that the issue was still pertinent due to the arbitrary action by the authorities that prevented the paper’s subscribers from receiving their copies on time.

“The order to seizure has not been revoked. On the record, the order of the executive must be declared null and void.

“The authorities cannot be allowed to act with impunity in defiance of the constitution, the Malaysia Agreement 1963 and related constitutional documents,” said Jambun, who is the head of a non-governmental organisation, Borneo’s Plight in Malaysia Foundation (BOPIM).

According to court documents made available to The Malay Mail Online, Jambun and Marcel are seeking a declaration that the Home Ministry’s order to seize the Catholic paper was unconstitutional and that it contravened the 10-point solution issued by Putrajaya in 2011.

The 10-point solution was introduced by the Najib administration shortly before the Sarawak state election in 2011 to resolve the seizure of a consignment of the Al-Kitab.

It allows for bibles in Malay and indigenous languages to be printed, imported and distributed freely in Sabah and Sarawak, and in a controlled manner in the Malay peninsula, whereby the holy books must be stamped first to indicate that they are a Christian publication.

Jambun, who is the former deputy chairman of State Reform Party (STAR) Sabah, and Marcel are also seeking a court order to override the Home Ministry’s directive to confiscate the Herald, as well as costs and damages.

Jambun, a parishioner of the Church of St Catherine in Inanam, further said he was unable to buy a copy of the Herald when he attended Sunday Mass on the morning of October 27.

“… this action of the respondent contravenes my right of religious freedom guaranteed by Article 11(1) of the Federal Constitution,” Jambun wrote in his affidavit.

The hearing for Jambun’s and Marcel’s joint application is scheduled for a hearing on February 10 at the Kota Kinabalu High Court.

The Home Ministry said on October 28 that copies of the Herald were seized for inspection to check if the word “Allah” was printed, noting that the Court of Appeal had upheld the government ban on the Arabic word in the Catholic weekly.

The Catholic Church is appealing to the Federal Court to be allowed to print the word “Allah” in its weekly paper, after the Court of Appeal reversed last October a 2009 landmark High Court ruling that the Arabic word for God was not exclusive to Muslims.

Malaysia’s highest court will hear arguments on March 5 before deciding if the Church can appeal.

In addition to the Herald, two other cases concerning the use of “Allah” by Christians are pending at the High Court.

The first was filed by the Sabah Sidang Injil Borneo (Borneo Evangelical Church) against the Home Ministry, for confiscating its Malay-language Christian children’s books, which contain the word “Allah”, in 2007.

The other is over the 2008 government seizure of audio compact discs, which also contain the word “Allah”, that belong to Jill Ireland Lawrence Bill, a Sarawakian Christian.

P/s I hope this issue will finally be resolved. Government should proactive to settle this problem once and for all. The unity of Malaysian can be jeopardized if no concrete action be taken. There are many people waiting to take a chance to destroy Malaysian unity.

SESB will not giving discount following January 2014 blackout

Logo SESB
 

KOTA KINABALU: Electricity consumers in Sabah will face the full brunt of the new tariff that came into effect on Jan 1 this month as Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd ruled out giving a ‘discount or rebate’ following the Jan 16 state-wide blackout.

The company’s managing director Abdul Razak Sallim said that they could not give rebate, as SESB was also a victim of the blackout that triggered by a sudden shutdown of generators at a independent power producer at Teluk Salut in Sepanggar here.

”SESB is also a victim of circumstances. In fact, the revenue we get now is not enough for us to operate. So there is no way that we can give discounts,’’ he said when asked if the utility company would give a discount in their January bills.

Over 500,000 consumers were affected by the nearly eight hour blackout with many, including political parties, calling on SESB to provide a rebate as compensation for the blackout after the new electricity tariff rates came into effect from Jan 1.

Razak said that that in initial findings for the failure of the Sabah power grid was triggered by a “manual shutdown” of four engines at an IPP in Sepangar here.

Quoting a letter from the IPP, Razak said the IPP had said; its “diverter damper” door, which covers the gas connection from the turbines to power up a steam turbine at the plant, could not be shut.

As smoke was continuously coming out of the plant, they decided to shut down the gas turbines.

However, Razak said that detailed investigations were still underway by a special task force, including the Energy Commission to determine if human error or technical problems triggered the problem.

Energy Commssion west coast areas director Nazlin Ab Alim Sidiri said that the detailed report of the incident would be forwarded to the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry to decide whether to launch further indepth investigations.

”The IPPs and SESB have been licensed to transmit power to consumers. If we find out any potential for either of them to have saved and restored the power but still failed to do so, their licence could be revoked,’’ she said.

P/s : In my opinion the IPP should take responsibility on the blackout.
