    Police, 1 of the Key Arms of the UMNO War Machine

    Anti-Anwar talks show BN fears Buku Jingga, says PKR

    By Shannon Teoh May 03, 2011
    PETALING JAYA, May 3 — Two thousand teachers and principals from Kelantan schools were forced to attend seminars where a senior police officer told them Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is the man featured in a recently released sex video, PKR said today.

    Deputy president Azmin Ali said that the four seminars held over the past three months were organised by the police and education department and was launched by Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Awang Adek Hussin, a Kelantan Umno leader.

    “Is this a desperate move by Barisan Nasional (BN) due to the fear in facing the influence of Pakatan Rakyat’s (PR) Buku Jingga especially among teachers?” the Gombak MP told a press conference here today.

    The Buku Jingga is a manifesto of promises that the opposition coalition will implement within the first 100 days of taking federal power and includes an increase in teachers’ allowances by RM500 per teacher per month.

    Communications director Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad and vice president Nurul Izzah Anwar had said last Friday that teachers in Kelantan complained of an SAC I Datuk Dr Isa Abdul Rahman telling them that Opposition Leader Anwar was the man in a sex video that surfaced in March.

    Nik Nazmi said today that PKR was told by Bukit Aman that no such officer existed.

    However, the party now says that the officer in question is SAC I Datuk Abdul Rahman Ismail, deputy director-general of Bukit Aman Special Branch research and secretariat.

    The 21-minute video, showing a man resembling the former deputy prime minister having sex with a woman with Far Eastern features, was first aired to reporters at the prestigious Carcosa Seri Negara hotel here last month by a man who identified himself as Datuk T.

    A few days after the viewing, it was revealed that Datuk T was a moniker that collectively referred to businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah, former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik and Perkasa treasurer-general Datuk Shuib Lazim.

    During a March 24 press conference, Abdul Rahim said the video was exposed to show “a man who wants to be prime minister is not qualified.”

    Former Kuala Lumpur CID chief Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim recently said another alleged Anwar sex tape had surfaced 12 years ago in 1999.

    Zain had asked the police to investigate any possible links between the two tapes and whether Abdul Gani could be trusted to discharge his duties professionally because of his past involvements in various anti-Anwar episodes.

    The police are investigating the Datuk T trio under section 292 of the Penal Code for screening pornographic material.

    Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said yesterday that the probe was still ongoing but was confident the police would resubmit investigation papers to the A-G by this week.

    He also said police would not hesitate to “expose the performer” in the sex video.

    At the press conference today, copies of the programme of one of the seminars held on February 19 and a picture of the man they claim is Abdul Rahman was handed out to reporters.

    Nik Nazmi explained that before the 21-minute video first surfaced on March 21, the seminars focused on Anwar’s ongoing sodomy trial but the sex video was added to the agenda later.

    “Police say the investigations are not yet concluded so how can they go around saying Anwar is the man in the video?” he said.

    “Abdul Rahman declared that Anwar was guilty of sodomy and also a client of prostitutes. How can the police conduct a professional investigation if one of its officers is involved in this disgusting agenda?” Azmin added.

    He called on the Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar and his deputy Khalid to explain the involvement of the senior cop in the seminars.

    The SB was set up by the British to spy on the people. That's the only thing they know how to do and do well.

    ‘Stop spying on us and start fighting crime’

    Special Branch spent three times more resources spying on its citizens than it has on fighting crime, says PKR president Wan Azizah

    PETALING JAYA: In 2010, Malaysia’s Special Branch, according to PKR, spent three times more resources spying on its citizens than it has fighting crime.

    PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail revealed figures from the 2012 Budget, showing that the police produced 733,237 spy reports and security checks in 2010.

    In comparison, the number of investigation papers under criminal investigation opened that year was 211,645.

    “All in all, the police’s Special Branch produced 733,000 reports on its citizens, spying on roughly 4.3% of the adult population of Malaysia,” said Wan Azizah.

    She expressed irony at this, hinting at the rising spate of crime in the country, especially where violence against women was concerned.

    She said that instead of focusing on crime, the government chose to focus on statistics.

    With the Special Branch in mind, Wan Azizah told Putrajaya: “Stop using the police to enforce a police state. Instead, let the police do their job of fighting crime.”

    She suggested that the police re-direct 90% of its Special Branch activities towards fighting crime.

    PKR central committee member Wong Chen said that the party was not undermining Special Branch’s intelligence role.
    Instead, he asked that the Special Branch, which was formed during the Malayan Emergency to combat the communist terrorists, stop following politicians around.

    “We’re not saying [that we want to] cut Special Branch’s budget and staff… [but] we have a crime wave… Stop spying on us and do some work [fight crime],” he said.

    Recently, Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein blamed the alleged rise of crime on poor public perception.

    In a Malay Mail report, he said that no country in the world had “zero crime”, adding that recent violent cases were merely isolated incidents.

    Citing government reports, Hishammuddin said that overall crime had dropped since last year.
