Wonder Why? Najib Razak is opposing the prosecution’s move to transfer the case against him relating to SRC International to the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya.










Najib fights bid to transfer case to Putrajaya

KUALA LUMPUR: Former prime minister Najib Razak is opposing the prosecution’s move to transfer the case against him relating to SRC International to the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya.

He wants the case to be heard at the Kuala Lumpur High Court.

Fiat prosecutor Sulaiman Abdullah informed Kuala Lumpur High Court judge Nazlan Ghazali today that Najib’s lawyers had written to Chief Judge of Malaya Zaharah Ibrahim to object to the prosecution’s transfer proposal.

He said this during case management over matters such as the handing of documents pertaining to the case to the defence.


Previously, Sulaiman had told the court the prosecution wanted the SRC-related case to be heard at the Palace of Justice as the courtrooms there were bigger and the public could have better access.

He told Nazlan today: “We are still waiting for her (Zaharah) reply on this.”

Speaking to reporters outside the court, Najib’s lawyer Shafee Abdullah said there was no need to hold the trial in Putrajaya as there were sufficient courtrooms here.

“We have 38 courtrooms here for the High Court, 27 courtrooms for the Sessions Court, 30 courtrooms for magistrates’ courts and another 12 empty courtrooms compared with Putrajaya which only has eight courtrooms,” he said.

Sulaiman also told the court the prosecution team had served the relevant trial documents, in 23 volumes, on Oct 18, to the defence.

“We have complied with Section 51A of the Criminal Procedure Code to furnish documents to the defence lawyers,” he added.

The court set Nov 29 for case mention again, and to hear Najib’s request to obtain more documents from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

Meanwhile, Nazlan allowed Najib’s bid to transfer the case against him involving 1MDB-related charges of corruption and money laundering from the Sessions Court to the High Court.

Fiat prosecutor Gopal Sri Ram, who is leading the prosecution in Najib’s 1MDB case, told the court he had no objection to the transfer.

Najib was charged in July with money laundering and CBT offences in the transfer of RM42 million into his account from former 1MDB unit SRC International.

He was also accused of abusing his power as the prime minister by giving government guarantees on SRC International’s RM4 billion loan from the Retirement Fund Inc.

A further 25 charges were levelled against him last month in connection with the alleged transfer of RM2.28 billion in 1MDB-related funds into his bank account before the 2013 general election.

He was also charged with abusing his power in a bid to obtain bribes amounting to over RM2 billion from February 2011 to December 2014.

In addition, Najib and his former Treasury secretary-general Irwan Serigar Abdullah were slapped with six CBT charges amounting to RM6.6 billion last week.

The RM6.6 billion CBT charges are related to land acquisition and settlement payment to International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC).

When asked about a possible live television broadcast for Najib’s trial, Shafee said he supported the idea.

“We can let people know what the cases are about,” he said.

Lion Air Crash More Than 49 Bodies Found, Ping Detected which could lead to Flight Recorders Being Found Soon.


Lion Air crash: Investigators detect 'pings' which could lead to flight recorders



By Euan McKirdy and Ivan Watson, CNN



Updated 0920 GMT (1720 HKT) October 31, 2018

Jakarta, Indonesia (CNN)Indonesian investigators searching for the flight recorders of crashed Lion Air flight 610 have heard transponder "pings" that could lead them to the devices, and answer questions as to why the new Boeing 737 MAX 8 went down, killing 189 people.




Haryo Satmiko, deputy director of the National Transport Safety Committee, told CNN in a text message that, while the pings had been detected, investigators needed more "technical efforts" to find the exact location of the so-called "black boxes."
Small pieces of debris and remains of some people on board the plane have been retrieved from the water off Jakarta, but the main body of the plane has been missing since it disappeared from radar on Monday around 6:30 a.m. local time.

Lion Air announced Wednesday it has fired its technical director.
The airline gave no reason for the personnel change but said in a news release it was made at "the instruction and the decision of the (Indonesian) transportation ministry."

What we know

FlightRadar24 published data that shows the plane behaving erratically after takeoff from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang.
Pilots made a request to air traffic control to return to the airport around 22 kilometers (12 nautical miles) after takeoff.
Radar data shows the plane didn't turn around, and the pilots didn't indicate there was an emergency.

All 189 people on board were killed, including 181 passengers, two pilots and six crew

Flight crew reported an issue with the plane the night before the flight, and repairs were carried out.

No answers on cause of Lion Air plane crash 01:59

Flight data sought
Ir. Suryanto, the head of National Transportation Safety Committee, told Indonesian television outlet TVOne on Tuesday that the "pings" had been detected no further than three kilometers from the group of eight current search points.

On Wednesday, Hadi Tjahjanto, comma
nder of Indonesia's Armed Forces, told the same broadcaster that search ships would focus on one particular point that they believe the pings could be coming from.

If those pings are indeed from the plane's flight data recorders, investigators will be able to use the devices to determine what exactly caused the plane to go down.

The devices, often referred to colloquially as "black boxes," record cockpit audio and flight instrument readings.

Search-and-rescue operations expanded to at least 400 square nautical miles Tuesday, with divers working to bring passenger remains and debris out of the water.

A group of 100 divers are focusing their efforts on five locations where debris has been identified by sonar equipment --including what could be part of the fuselage -- according to Didi Hamzar, an official with Indonesia's search and rescue agency.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo joined search teams at Tanjung Priok port Tuesday, where debris is being sorted and recorded as part of the investigation into the cause of the crash. To date, no sizable parts of the wreckage have been retrieved.


Indonesia's President Joko Widodo tours the operations centre as recovered debris from the ill-fated Lion Air flight JT 610 are laid out at a port in northern Jakarta.

Images of items fished out of the sea showed wallets, bags and other personal items, including a child's Hello Kitty purse.

At a news conference Tuesday, Muhammad Syaugi of Indonesia's National Search and Rescue Agency said the identification process was proceeding as quickly as possible, but said it was unlikely the remains of all passengers would be found.


Personal items from Lion Air flight JT 610 lie on a tarp at Tanjung Priok port on October 30, 2018.

Boeing team on site
The Lion Air plane was a brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.
Lion Air acquired the jet in August and it had flown only 800 hours, according to Indonesia's National Transport Safety Committee (NTSC).

A team of Boeing investigators arrived in Indonesia Wednesday at the request of Indonesia's local regulatory authority, Boeing press officer Kevin Yoo told CNN.

The aircraft is one of the company's newest and most advanced jets, one of 11 such planes in Lion Air's fleet. In a statement, Boeing said the company was "deeply saddened" by the loss and offered "heartfelt sympathies" to passengers and crew on board, and their families.
Indonesian aviation authorities ordered the inspection of 12 other Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircrafts belonging to commercial airlines in the country.



Officials don't know why this new plane crashed 02:29

Cause of crash remains a mystery
Flight 610 was carrying 181 passengers, as well as six cabin crew members and two pilots, from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang, on the Indonesian island of Bangka.
Around 19 kilometers (12 miles) after takeoff, it made a request to air traffic control to return to the airport but did not indicate there was any emergency.
Radar data shows that the plane did not turn back, and air traffic controllers lost contact with it soon after, Yohanes Sirait, spokesman for AirNav Indonesia, the agency that oversees air traffic navigation, told CNN.


Soldiers push inflatable raft as they carry debris of the Lion Air flight JT610 airplane that crashed into the sea, as they walks onto Tanjung Pakis beach in Karawang, Indonesia.
David Soucie, a former safety inspector with the US Federal Aviation Administration, said the fact that an emergency wasn't declared should be a cause for concern.

"What's most peculiar to me is the fact that they didn't declare an emergency. They just simply said, 'We're going back'," said Soucie, a CNN safety analyst.

"But when I look at the track of the aircraft after that, the aircraft made a very steep dive after that which is not typical of what they would've done," he added. "They would have maintained altitude and made that turn and come back to (the airport)."

The plane had reported problems the night before on a flight from Denpasar to Jakarta, but engineers had checked and repaired the issue and given the plane clearance to fly, Lion Air Chief Executive Edward Sirait told local media.
AirNav Indonesia said the flight would have been given a priority landing spot had it declared an emergency.

Father of three jailed 50 years, caning for sexual assault on two teens


Wednesday, 31 Oct 20185:38 PM MYT


MELAKA (Bernama): A father of three was sentenced to a total of 50 years' jail and four strokes of the cane by the Sessions Court here on Wednesday (Oct 31), on six charges of committing physical and non-physical assault on two teenage boys.

Judge Elesabet Paya Wan handed down the sentence on fruit trader Md Zhafran Bakar, 31, after he pleaded guilty to the charges.


The man, who was unrepresented, was sentenced to 10 years' jail and a stroke of the cane on each of the four charges for physical sexual assault.

He was also sentenced to five years' jail on each count for the two charges of committing non-physical sexual assault on the two boys by making them watch a pornographic video.

Md Zhafran was charged with four counts of committing physical sexual assault on the two victims, aged 14 and 15, at a hotel in Batu Berendam here, between 1.05 am and 4.30 am last Oct 21.

The four charges were framed under Section 14(b) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017, which provides an imprisonment for up to 20 years and whipping, upon conviction.

Md Zhafran was also charged with two counts on non-physical sexual assault on the two children, by making them watch a pornographic video on his handphone in a car at the Batu Berendam

Wholesale market area here at about 12.30am the same day.

The charges were under Section 15(e) of the same law, which provides an imprisonment for up to 10 years, or a maximum fine of RM20,000, or both, upon conviction.

In mitigation, Md Zhafran said he had a wife and three young children to support.

The prosecution, conducted by deputy public prosecutor Siti Ruvinna Mohd Rawi, said the offences committed by Md Zhafran were serious.

“During the incident, the accused offered rewards for the two teenagers, like working half-time, treat at McDonald's and handphones, if they agreed to follow him to the hotel.

“A father with three children should be protecting them, not doing what he did,” she said.

According to the facts of the case, at about 5pm last Oct 25, Md Zhafran approached the two boys, who are related to him, at a flat unit and offered them cigarettes and also a part-time job.

Later in the evening, he contacted the two boys through the ‘WhatsApp' application and asked them out for dinner before taking them to a hotel in Batu Berendam. - Bernama

Father detained for allegedly molesting three daughters aged 5 to 1

by farik zolkepli





KAJANG: A 32-year-old man has been detained for allegedly sexually assaulting his three young daughters.

It is learnt that the daughters, aged one, three and five, complained that their father had repeatedly assaulted them by inserting his fingers into their private parts.


Their mother, a 32-year-old marketing executive, only found out about it after the three-year-old victim told the grandmother on Oct 16.

Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Ahmad Dzaffir Mohd Yussof said the three-year-old girl told the mother that their father had inserted his finger in her vagina and anus.


“That revelation led to the other girls telling their mother that they were also assaulted by their father in a similar manner.

“The mother only lodged a police report on Oct 23 after gathering all the information from her daughters,” he said when contacted on Wednesday (Oct 31).

He added that the couple had been married for about eight years and had four children, including a seven-year-old boy.

“Initial investigations revealed that the three-year-old girl had told her grandmother of her father’s assaults in 2017 but no one believed her,” he said.

ACP Ahmad Dzaffir said the three girls had been sent to Kajang Hospital for checks.

“Doctors discovered old tears on the victims’ vaginas but there were no signs of assault on the anus,” he said.

The father was arrested at about 7.45am on Oct 25 at his workplace in Sungai Long.

“He was remanded. and we have since forwarded the investigations papers to the Deputy Public Prosecutor with the suggestion to charge the suspect under Section 14(a) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017,” he said.

KUALA LUMPUR: Former national diving coach Huang Qiang, who had been acquitted and discharged by a lower court on a charge of raping a national diver last year, was today ordered by the High Court to enter his defence on the charge.

Judge Azman Abdullah made the order after allowing the prosecution’s appeal against a Sessions Court’s decision, made last April 9, in acquitting and discharging Huang, 36, of the charge.

In his judgment, Azman said the prosecution had succeeded in establishing a prima facie case against Huang and revoked the acquittal and discharge ordered by the Sessions Court.

He said Sessions Court judge Noradura Hamzah had erred in her decision against Huang at the end of the prosecution’s case.



“Therefore, the respondent (Huang Qiang) is ordered to enter his defence on the charge made against him,” he added.

The court fixed two days, Nov 21 and 22, to hear the defence by Huang, who was allowed bail of RM20,000 in two Malaysian sureties.

He was also ordered to surrender his passport to the court.

Huang, represented by lawyer Hisham Md Nen, was charged with raping the national diver, then aged 20, at the National Aquatic Centre in Bukit Jalil, here, at 5.30pm on Sept 26 last year.

The man, who has obtained Malaysian citizenship, was charged under Section 376(1) of the Penal Code, which provides an imprisonment of up to 20 years and whipping if found guilty.

The prosecution was conducted by deputy public prosecutor Aznika Mohd Anas.

MACC found that Najib Razak’s claim that the RM2.6 billion he received was a donation from Saudi royalty to be false


Najib's donation claim false, says ex-MACC chief

By MANIRAJAN RAMASAMY AND VEENA BABULAL - October 31, 2018 @ 8:41am




KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has found Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s claim that the RM2.6 billion he received was a donation from Saudi royalty to be false after the agency met United States’ officials in Washington.

Former MACC chief Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed said evidence provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the US Department of Justice (DoJ) contradicted Najib’s claim.

Abu Kassim said this when asked to clarify a statement issued by MACC in 2015 confirming that the money that was deposited in Najib’s personal account was a donation.

The agency stated that the money was not siphoned from 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

It said it obtained an explanation about the donation from the donor personally, who was said to be a Saudi prince.

The agency said details about the donor were collected through a bank document, apart from letters that were purportedly mailed to AmBank when the money was wired into Najib’s account.

The statement had concluded that the RM2.6 billion was a donation based on the documents obtained at the time.

However, when asked to clarify this yesterday, Abu Kassim said the 2015 statement was issued based on information that was available at the time.

“At that particular time, in that statement, we said it was a donation.

“But after we had some engagement (with other authorities), we discovered the truth.”

When pressed, Abu Kassim said: “The court will reveal the truth.”

Abu Kassim, who is National Centre for Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption head, said this after briefing an international conference on financial crime here.

Najib has maintained that he believed the money he received was a donation from Saudi royalty.

The former prime minister and finance minister has been slapped with more than 30 counts of money-laundering offences, corruption and criminal breach of trust over allegations that he embezzled billions of ringgit from 1MDB.

MACC are on to businessman Deepak Jaikishan’s “confession” in a pre-recorded talkshow programme that he had bribed his way through Putrajaya



Carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan has admitted to giving bribes to secure contracts from Putrajaya. (NSTP Archive)

By FARRAH NAZ KARIM AND AHMAD FAIRUZ OTHMAN - October 31, 2018 @ 8:28am




KUALA LUMPUR: GRAFT-BUSTERS have picked up on businessman Deepak Jaikishan’s “confession” in a pre-recorded talkshow programme that he had bribed his way through Putrajaya to secure contracts.

They agreed that Deepak’s revelation could be read as an admission of guilt that breached Section 17 (b) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act 2009, which also deals with giving gratification.

If he is levelled with criminal charges and convicted, he is looking at a maximum of 20 years in prison and a fine not less than five times the sum or value of gratification.

The section outlaws the act of “corruptly giving, or agreeing to give, or offer any gratification to any agent as an inducement or a reward for doing, or forbearing to do... to any person in relation to his principal’s affairs or business”, among others.

He had said in the interview, that he had gifted former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, up to RM300 million in big-ticket items as well as cash.

He went on to reveal that among the gifts was a Bentley Flying Spur, a car with a RM2 million sticker price that was bought for Rosmah, but registered under one of her sons’ name.

Deepak also claimed that a house he gave to Najib was registered under one of his brothers’ name.

Among the incriminating lines Deepak uttered that piqued the interest of the graft-busters was, “I have been given various concessions and he demanded certain gratification”.

The New Straits Times asked MACC Deputy Chief Commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki if it was clear that Deepak had committed an offence under the Act, and if his officers would take him in for questioning any time soon.

Azam replied in the affirmative, saying that it had not escaped the commission’s attention.

The NST was, however, made to understand by those with knowledge of where this admission could land Deepak in, that the carpet dealer, once known to be a close associate of Rosmah, had been told to present himself at the commission’s headquarters in Putrajaya. This was soon after recordings of the interview were leaked on social media.

The NST contacted Deepak, but he declined to comment.

Deepak’s interview comes amid the RM656 million suit against Najib, Rosmah and two others for allegedly interfering in a property deal which resulted in his company suffering huge losses.

It is understood that a contract linked to the suit filed on Oct 12 involved a RM4.5 billion accommodation project.

Najib has since dismissed the accusations, stating that the claims in Deepak’s suit were a “complete fabrication”, adding that the latter’s accusations were illogical and that he was only seeking to cast aspersions against him (Najib) and Rosmah.

In clips of the interview, which had mostly been taken down from social media, Deepak also spoke of his attempt to contest Najib’s Pekan parliamentary seat in the 14th General Election under Pakatan Harapan.

He claimed to have met Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who declined his voluntary candidacy.

The leaked interview where Deepak pulled no punches in levelling a flurry of accusations against Najib and Rosmah, has yet to be aired, as at press time.

Police reveal the scenario behind a teenage girl’s allegation that the MP of Arau Perlis had touched her


MP was with teen in car for a chat, say police

GEORGE TOWN: Police today revealed the scenario behind a teenage girl’s allegation that an MP had touched her inappropriately, which led her to lodge a police report in Kangar, Perlis, about two weeks ago.

Perlis police chief Noor Mushar Mohd said the 15-year-old girl was a singer who was part of a busking group. She was training with her schoolmates on the grounds of a stadium.

He said about 11.30pm on Oct 20, the MP had asked the teen to meet him in his Toyota Harrier parked near the place where the practice was being held to “have a chat”.

A teacher of the teen conducting the practice took her to the car, and the MP’s aide guided her to enter the car where the MP was seated.



The MP had sponsored the school’s busking team for “quite some time”, Mushar said.

He said the MP and the teen were alone in the car.

According to the teen’s report to police, Mushar said, the MP had suddenly touched her hand and shoulders, which she swiftly brushed away.

“She immediately left the vehicle. As soon as she got out, she cried, as witnessed by the teacher who brought her to this MP. The teen has met this MP before,” he said at a press conference in Kangar, Perlis, today.

Mushar said the teen lodged a report at 2.50am that night (Oct 21) accompanied by her parents.

He said the teen was a “girl from a good family” with parents who were professionals. He said the teen was a talented singer and had been singing since primary school.

“Later in the day at 10.30am (Oct 21), the teen lodged another report to withdraw the claims made about the MP earlier, without any coercion from anyone. She did it willingly,” he said.

Mushar said ever since the first report was lodged, police have recorded 10 statements to date, including one from the MP. The MP gave his statement to officers from Bukit Aman today, he said.

He said it was very upsetting to hear claims by third parties that police had stopped investigating the case after the retraction of the report by the teen.

Mushar told R Sri Sanjeevan, an activist who first tweeted about the issue, not to be a “busybody” and a “cheapskate” (sic) and to leave the case to the police.

“Don’t use hearsay evidence to make your claims. Please tell Sanjeevan this…the Perlis police force is investigating all, including suspects who are VVIP,” he said.

Mushar also said if the teen had been bribed, intimidated, or forced to withdraw her report, she had to come forward to make a report so police could investigate.

He said for the time being, the case had been referred to the federal police prosecution division before being sent to the attorney-general to decide whether the case could be taken up for prosecution.

The case is being investigated under Section 14 (a) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017. Section 14 of the act states that any person who touches any part of a child’s body for sexual purposes commits an offence punishable by a maximum 10-year jail term or RM20,000 fine.

4 Bank Negara Malaysia officials htold to go on leave pending investigations purchase of land valued at RM2bil in January


Four BNM officials put on leave pending investigations into RM2bil land purchase

BANKING


Wednesday, 31 Oct 201810:35 AM MYT

KUALA LUMPUR: Four Bank Negara Malaysia officials have been told to go on leave pending investigations into the January purchase of land valued at RM2bil.

The four were put on leave as the authorities including the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission investigate further into how the sale was concluded.


In June this year, former Bank Negara Malaysia Governor Tan Sri Muhammad Ibrahim resigned from his post over the controversy.

The controversy over the sale of land came about because the proceeds were alleged to have been used to settle some of the liabilities of debt-laden 1Malaysia Development Bhd.


However, in BNM's case the purchase was not for commercial reasons hence the contention was the price should have been lower.

Also, the money was transferred to the federal government before the full transaction was completed.

by farik zolkepli





KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman has recorded the statement of the Perlis MP who is being investigated for allegedly molesting a 15-year-old girl.

Perlis police chief Senior Asst Comm Noor Mushar Mohamed said the suspect, who went to Bukit Aman at close to noon Tuesday (Oct 30), spent a few hours with investigators.


“The questioning of the suspect lasted until around 5pm.

“We are close to wrapping up the investigation into the matter,” he said when contacted.


He added that police have so far recorded the statements of 10 people, including the girl and the suspect.

“We will forward the investigation papers to the Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP).

“The DPP will then decide on further action on the matter,” he said.

It was reported that the statement of the MP would be managed by the Bukit Aman Sexual, Women and Child Investigations Division (D11).

The case is classified under Section 14(a) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017.

It was learnt that a police report was made recently, alleging that the victim, 15, was molested by the MP but the report was withdrawn by the victim’s family.

Despite the withdrawal of the report, police said investigations must go on, and that any understanding reached between the victim’s family and the suspect is not related to the police.

PELAKON Ayu Raudhah memberitahu video kontroversi mirip suaminya iaitu pemain bola sepak Kuala Lumpur iaitu Zaquan yang tersebar baru-baru ini adalah foto peribadi mereka yang disebarkan individu tidak bertanggungjawab.

Ayu berkata, dia enggan mengulas lanjut dan menganggap perkara tersebut sebagai satu isu sensitif yang tidak perlu dihebahkan kepada umum.

“Saya orang pertama yang tahu tentang video itu kerana ia dalam telefon bimbit saya yang rosak.

AG says Malaysia doesn’t have to pay US$4.32b to IPIC as 1MDB defrauded

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 30 — The Malaysian government will ask the UK courts to affirm that the country does not have to pay a US$4.32 billion sum to Abu Dhabi’s International Petroleum Investment Company or Aabar Investments PJS because 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was defrauded, Tommy Thomas said today.

The attorney-general noted that an arbitration tribunal sitting in London had on May 9 last year recorded a consent award for Malaysia to pay US$5.78 billion to IPIC and the bond trustee over a five-year period, with US$1.46 billion of this sum already paid.


But Thomas said that the Malaysian government will apply to the Courts of England for a court order to set aside the arbitration tribunal’s consent award.

“We are pleased to report that the application will be filed today in the High Court in London.


“Malaysia will claim that as a result of the fraud, we are relieved from any obligation to pay the balance of the US$4.32 billion to IPIC or Aabar under the Consent Award, and additionally have a right to recover the US$1.46 billion already paid,” he said in a two-page statement.

Banks to report transactions over RM25,000 beginning next Jan

KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Negara Malaysia today halved the minimum amount of cash and other physical transactions that must be reported by banks to RM25,000, seen as part of efforts to tighten the noose on criminal activities and money laundering.

The initiative, which will kick in next January, marks a drop from the RM50,000 currently allowed in transactions including withdrawals and deposits.

In her keynote address at the 10th International Conference on Financial Crime and Terrorism Financing, BNM governor Nor Shamsiah Yunus said cash was still the preferred medium of exchange for criminals.

She added that Malaysia’s Cash Threshold Report, a standard precaution against money laundering, crime and terrorism, was presently too high.



“Our current threshold in comparison to other countries is too high and disconnected from the size of the economy, especially relative to our purchasing power,” she said.

She assured however that BNM did not anticipate any impact to the economy from the lower CTR.

MP urges the Home Ministry to get Statements from Najib and Rosmah after Revealations in an Interview By Deepak Jaikishan Once A Close Associate of Rosmah

Cops urged to take statements from Najib, Rosmah in connection to Altantuya cas


Tuesday, 30 Oct 20188:52 AM MYT



KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): A Member of Parliament has urged the Home Ministry to get statements from Pekan MP Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor in connection to the latest allegations that they were involved in the Altantuya Shaariibuu (pic) murder case.

Ramkarpal Singh (PH-Bukit Gelugor) said the revelations were made by businessman J. Deepak who was previously said to enjoy good ties with the couple in an interview which was uploaded on to the internet recently, but the recording has since been deleted.


He said what Deepak brought up in the interview was important to the case as it could pinpoint the motive behind the murder of the Mongolian model.

"Deepak had clearly stated that Pekan was involved in the murder (of Altantuya), he said Pekan and his wife were directly involved, that was Deepak's statement.

Commenting further, Ramkarpal who represented Altantuya's family in their civil suit at the Shah Alam High Court which will be heard in January, said Rosmah should have lodged a police report if what Deepak exposed in the interview were untrue.

"This serious revelation was not answered by Pekan's wife, she did not lodge a police report (or) do anything to deny the serious allegations, this is a lead which could solve (the question of the) motive behind Altantuya's case," he said, adding that police should take Deepak's statement.

Altantuya was murdered in 2006 in the jungles in Puncak Alam, with her head reportedly shot before her body was blown up with a C4 bomb.

After the case was brought to court, two policemen who were Najib's personal bodyguards were found guilty and sentenced to death.

Ramkarpal said the appropriate action should be taken, so that it was in keeping with "the rule of law' constantly stressed by the Pakatan Harapan government. -Bernama

Lion Air JT610 Crash Update: Aircraft that Crashed into the Java Sea minutes after take off was a Brand New Boeing 737 MAX 8 Plane

Indonesian aircraft was new, fell out of a clear sky minutes after take-off

PAKISJAYA, Indonesia (Reuters) - Fishermen Budi and Gauk left home an hour before dawn on Monday and, with prawn nets stowed on their shallow teak boat, they headed out in a becalmed sea off the coast northeast of Jakarta in clear weather.

About the same time, on the other side of the Indonesian capital, passengers were checking in for Lion Air flight JT610.


Then, shortly after 6:30 a.m. (2330 GMT Sunday), their lives collided.

The Boeing 737 MAX 8 literally fell out of the sky near where the two men were fishing about 15 km (9 miles) off the coast, silently at first and then with a deafening crash as it smacked into the sea.

Police busied themselves with rubber dinghies and ambulances were lined up on the shoreline, but no one pretended that any of the 189 people on board flight JT610 would be found alive.

Yusuf Latief, spokesman of national search and rescue agency, said there were likely no survivors. There was no word on any probable cause for the accident.

Air travel is crucial in Indonesia, a vast archipelago of more than 17,000 islands that stretches about 5,100 km (3,170 miles) from east to west, almost the distance between New York and London. Although it is one of the world's fastest-growing aviation markets, it has been plagued by air disasters.

Lion Air, a low-cost airline that dominates the domestic air travel market, has had more than a dozen accidents in its nearly 20-year history, but none with fatalities since 2004.

ALMOST BRAND NEW

The captain of Monday's flight JT610 from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang, the main town on Bangka, a beach-fringed island off Sumatra, was Bhavye Suneja, a 31-year-old Indian citizen originally from New Delhi. He and an Italian passenger were the only known foreigners on board.

Image result for Bhavye Suneja

According to his Linkedin account, Suneja had worked for Lion Air since 2011, clocking up some 6,000 flight hours. On Facebook there are photos of him in his Lion Air uniform, smiling.

Minutes after take-off at 6:20 a.m., Suneja reported technical difficulties and obtained permission from ground officials to turn back.

Data from FlightRadar24 shows the first sign of something amiss was around two minutes into the flight, when the plane had reached 2,000 feet (610 metres).



The plane dropped more than 500 feet (152 metres), veered to the left and then started climbing again to 5,000 feet (1,524 metres). It gained speed in the final moments before data was lost when it was at an altitude of 3,650 feet (1,113 metres).

TheBoeing 737 MAX 8  is the most recent model of Boeing's famous 737, the U.S. company's best-selling plane, and is a popular choice among budget airlines around the world.

Lion Air's plane was almost brand new. It was flown for the first time on Aug. 15, and the airline said it had been certified as airworthy before Monday's flight by an engineer who is a specialist in Boeing models.

Lion Air Chief Executive Edward Sirait said on Monday that the plane had encountered an unspecified "technical issue" on its previous flight, which was from the resort island of Bali to Jakarta, but this had been "resolved according to procedure".

"We don't dare to say what the facts are, or are not, yet," he told reporters. "We are also confused about the why, since it was a new plane."

"WAIT AND BE BRAVE"

At Jakarta airport, tearful passengers waited for news: a mother urged her toddler son to "wait and be brave", another told her crying girl, "be patient, pray the best for Papa."

The only news that came, though, was of body parts and debris found floating in the water around the crash site.





Photos published by the search and rescue agency showed pictures of articles belonging to passengers, including ID cards, a driving licence, and a pair of children's shoes.

One of the passengers was 22-year-old Deryl Fida Febrianto, who was married just two weeks ago and was on his way to Pangkal Pinang to work on a cruise ship.

His wife, Lutfinani Eka Putri, 23, said that her husband messaged her from the aircraft at 6:12 a.m., sending her a photo from the plane, and at 6:15 a.m. he stopped replying to her messages. They had grown up together, she told reporters, showing a picture of the smiling couple on their wedding day.

"When I saw the news, I matched the flight number with the ticket photo Deryl had sent," she said. "I immediately started crying."

A SEARCH and rescue agency official says he’s not expecting any survivors from Lion Air flight JT610, which crashed into seas off Jakarta with 189 people aboard.
The operations director at the agency, Bambang Suryo Aji, says the search effort is focusing on finding bodies.
He said six body bags have been used so far for human remains recovered.
Aji said the location of the plane hull hasn’t been identified yet. Waters where it sank are up to 30 metres deep.
The search is currently planned to last seven days and could be extended.
The passenger plane had only been in service two months.

Lion Air said the plane was delivered on August 15 and had clocked 800 hours of flying time before the disaster.
There are no Boeing 737 MAX 8s in use by Australian Airlines, however Virgin Australia has a number of MAX 8s on order due to arrive by November 2019.
A Virgin Australia spokeswoman said it was too soon to comment on whether Virgin would review that order, in light of the Indonesia crash.
She said the airline would not comment on how many MAX 8s it had ordered.

The Boeing 737 MAX 8 vanished from the radar 13 minutes after takeoff.
Boeing’s 737 MAX fleet first went into service last year and was in use by more than 100 airlines worldwide.
The MAX 8 model can seat up to 210 passengers and is a single-aisle jet powered by twin CFM LEAP-1B engines. It is 39.5m long and has a 35.9m wingspan.
Boeing said in a statement it was “deeply saddened by the loss of Flight JT 610”.
“We express our concern for those on board, and extend heartfelt sympathies to their families and loved ones,” the statement read.
“Boeing stands ready to provide technical assistance to the accident investigation.”
The plane was headed to Pangkal Pinang, an island east of Sumatra. It was carrying 189 people — including two infants and its crew. The airline is known for its poor safety record.

The aircraft disappeared near Karawang in West Java province, said Yusuf Latif, a spokesman for the National Search and Rescue Agency.
Lion Air flight JT610 requested to return to base, with air traffic control losing contact with the pilots after approving the request, Yohanes Sirait, a spokesman for the country’s air navigation authorities, said.
Indonesia’s disaster agency posted photos online of a crushed smartphone, books, bags and parts of the aircraft fuselage that had been collected by search and rescue vessels.
President Joko Widodo ordered the transport safety commission to investigate and urged Indonesians to “keep on praying” as rescuers search for victims.

A spokesperson for DFAT said the Australian Embassy is making urgent enquiries to determine if any Australians were on board the flight.
“The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is following closely reports of the crash into the sea of Lion Air flight JT-610.” the spokesperson said.
“Indonesian authorities are undertaking a search and rescue operation and, at this stage, there are no reports of survivors.
“The Australian Embassy in Jakarta is making urgent enquiries with local authorities to determine if any Australians were on board the flight.
Piloting the aircraft was Captain Bhavye Suneja, assisted by co-pilot Harvino, who together had a combined total of 11,000 hours flying time, according to a statement by Lion Air.
They were assisted by flight attendants Mery Yulianda, Alviani Hidayatul Solikha, Damayanti Simarmata, Deny Maula, Citra Noivita Anggelia and Shintia Melina.
Three of the cabin crew members were in training, the statement said.

Weather conditions were normal but the brand new aircraft had experienced a technical issue on its previous flight.
In the aftermath of the crash, friends and relatives prayed and hugged each other as they waited at Pangkal Pinang’s airport.
At the National Search and Rescue Agency headquarters in Jakarta, family members turned up, hoping desperately for news.
Feni, who uses a single name, said her soon to be married sister was on the flight, planning to meet relatives in Pangkal Pinang.

“We are here to find any information about my younger sister, her fiance, her in-law to be and a friend of them,” Feni said.
“We don’t have any information,” she said, as her father wiped tears from reddened eyes.
“No one provided us with any informationthat we need. “We’re confused. We hope that our family is still alive,” she said.
Indonesia’s Finance Minister Sri Mulyanialso arrived at the agency and met with its chief, seeking information about 20 finance ministry staff who were on the flight.

Meanwhile, Australian officials and contractors are being instructed by the Department of Foreign and Trade to avoid flying with Lion Airlines after the horrific crash.
The crash is yet another setback for the rapidly growing Indonesian aviation sector which infamously had all airlines black-listed from entering European airspace following a spate of incidents and reports of deteriorating safety standards during the 1990s.
The EU removed the ban in 2016, but by 2013 Lion Airlines had landed itself in the headlines after a Bali-bound Boeing 737 crashed into the sea while attempting to land at Ngurah Rai International Airport. In this instance, all 108 passengers and crew survived.

Executive Chairman of CAPA Centre for Aviation Peter Harbison said that Lion Airlines had expanded rapidly and become one of the largest markets in Indonesia in a short amount of time.
“It is one of the youngest fleets in the world and now has 235 aircrafts and 450 on order, he said.”
“It’s grown from virtually nothing at the beginning of this century to take that position.”
Mr Harbison said that in principle a rapidly expanding company would put pressure on maintaining logistics and safety, but also added that Lion Airlines’ growth had slowed considerably over the last five years.
“Most of the low cost carriers are fairly new and so they may not have that fixed way of doing things, the bureaucracy that comes with a big business that has been operating for 30, 40, 50 years.”

A tugboat crew in Karawang reported seeing “debris of a plane” in the water, and a vessel belonging to Indonesian energy firm Pertamina official reported seeing more debris, including plane seats, near its offshore facility in the Java Sea.
Pictures and video released by Indonesian Disaster Mitigation Agency appeared to show personal items including a bag, phone and documentation among suspected debris from the crashed plane.
Indonesian Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) chief M Syaugi said the agency had already found other debris from the aircraft including mobile phones and buoys.

DEADLY HISTORY
Just six months ago, a Lion Air plane skidded off the runway at Djalaluddin Airport in Gorontalo, Indonesia. None of the 174 passengers and seven crew members suffered injuries, with the incident destroying the plane’s landing gear.
In 2013 a Lion Air jet with a rookie pilot at the controls undershot the runway and crashed into the sea in Bali, splitting the plane in two. Several people were injuredin the crash, although no one was killed.
The last major accident in Indonesia was in December 2014 when AirAsia Indonesia’s Airbus A320 aircraft crashed into the waters after taking off from Surabaya to Singapore with 162 people on board.
Indonesia relies heavily on air transport to connect its thousands of islands but has a poor aviation safety record and has suffered several fatal crashes in recent years.

A 12-year-old boy was the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed eight people in mountainous eastern Indonesia in August.
In August 2015, a commercial passenger aircraft operated by Indonesian carrier Trigana crashed in Papua due to bad weather, killing all 54 people on board.
The European Union banned Lion Air from entering the airspace of any member state in 2006 after being deemed unsafe due to a poor safety record.
The EU lifted the ban in 2016, and in September this year, the International Civil Aviation Organisation gave the airline a top safety ranking.
Global airline rating agency AirlineRatings.com also moved the Indonesia-based carrier to its top safety tier.
