HULU SELANGOR (Bernama): The next-door neighbour of the victims of a fire in Kampung Alah Batu, Ulu Bernam early Monday (Aug 19) morning heard them scream for help but couldn't do anything.

"I heard a woman shouting for help from next door, but I was helpless as the blaze was just too intense and it spread very fast, ” said Rabaiah Yunus, 58.

Rabaiah, who lived next door to the victims, said she heard someone screaming for help as she had just woke up to cook for her daughter who was returning to Manjung.

"My son-in-law, who had also woken up, heard the shouts and thought there was a thief but on coming out of the house, we saw the flames getting bigger.

"We just could not do anything except to alert other neighbours as everyone was asleep, ” said Rabaiah, who was in tears when met by Bernama here Monday.

In the 3.51am incident, Mohd Sharidan Abdul Aziz and his wife Siti Rafini Mohd Rafiee, in their 30s, and their son, Rafiq Mohd Sharidan, were found burnt to death in a room in the house.

Rabaiah said the deceased family moved in since January and they were good neighbours and said: "I considered them as my own children."

Meanwhile, Mohd Sharidan’s father, Abdul Aziz Mohd Idris, 58, said the victim was third in a family of five siblings and he was close to his son.

"I last met him on Sunday (Aug 18) as there was an engagement feast in my house.

"Whenever he went out to do his business, he would stop by my house almost every day.

"We accept what had happened over the loss of my son, daughter-in-law and my grandson, ” he said.

He said the late couple sold fried chicken next to SMK Besout near here and their son was one year and two months old.

It is learnt that all three victims would be laid to rest at Kampung Kuala Slim Muslim Cemetery here after post-mortem by the Slim River Hospital Forensics Unit. - Bernama

Nearly 100 picket at Utusan office over unpaid wages

Nearly 100 picket at Utusan office over unpaid wages
Nicholas Chung
-August 19, 2019 3:07 PMFMTCurrent and former Utusan Melayu employees protest outside the main office in Kuala Lumpur today.

KUALA LUMPUR: Nearly 100 current and former employees of Utusan Melayu Bhd demonstrated in front of the daily’s main office here today, claiming the company had failed to pay them their wages for one and a half months now.

National Union of Journalists (NUJ) president Taufik Razak, who was present at the gathering, said he had attended a meeting earlier with Utusan’s management and executive chairman.

He said he was informed that the company has no funds to pay either overdue or current wages, and claimed it could face closure within weeks.

“This is because they do not have any money and have failed to sell off their assets,” Taufik, who is also Utusan NUJ branch chairman, said.

NUJ claimed earlier this month that Utusan, which publishes Malay dailies Utusan Malaysia and Kosmo, owes salaries to 769 workers, with complaints of delays in payments and claims since January.

“Even Umno has not given any information on keeping Utusan alive because Umno also has no money,” Taufik said.

“So I’m pleading with Umno and Umno members to help us workers who have helped them in the past, and to look at our condition.”

Taufik claimed Utusan had been unable to sell off its assets in part because many of its buildings do not have a certificate of fitness.

Consequently, he said, the management has to wait for approval from the authorities before they can sell these assets.

“You can imagine how bad Utusan’s management was – they thought Umno would always stay in power,” he added.

Nik Mohd Hasmazi, who has worked as a graphic designer at Utusan for 23 years, said employees were like flood victims who must resort to financial aid for daily necessities.

He said it is especially difficult for him as a father when his son asks him for money for allowance.

“My son, who is in Form 3, even asked me to give him RM5 instead of the usual RM7 because he wants to help me.

“We love the company, that’s why we have not left it. Even though we have not been paid, we have not abandoned the work.”

Malaysian Trades Union Congress secretary-general J Solomon, who was also present, claimed there had been a lack of effort by the management in selling off the company’s assets.

“Even if they can’t sell their properties, they must find a way to mortgage the properties to at least pay the salaries of the 200 workers involved,” he said.

He also called for a revamp of the editorial board, saying journalists should not be blamed for following instructions.

Likewise, he urged the government to intervene, saying Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad and prime-minister-in-waiting Anwar Ibrahim were once supported by Utusan as well.

Former Malaysian PM's Wife, Rosmah seeks RM500, 000 in security costs from Lebanese jeweller

Rosmah seeks RM500, 000 in security costs from Lebanese jeweller

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The High Court here Monday (Aug 9) fixed Sept 11 to hear two applications filed by the former prime minister's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, including one seeking RM500, 000 in security costs from Lebanese jeweller Global Royalty Trading SAL.

Global Royalty Trading SAL sued Rosmah on June 26, 2018, seeking the return of 44 pieces of jewellery sent to her for selection or pay the price of all the items, amounting to US$14.79mil (RM60mil).

Lawyer Datuk David Gurupatham, who is acting on behalf of the Lebanese jewellery firm, told reporters that the defendant (Rosmah) also filed another application to get an expert to verify the jewellery seized for forfeiture.

"The defendant filed two applications on Friday (Aug 16), so we obviously need to respond to the applications and affidavit in reply, ” he told reporters after case management in chambers before High Court Judge Wong Chee Lin.

David said they will also amend their statement of claim to reflect the present changes and the matter will also be heard on that day (Sept 11).

He said the trial for the suit will proceed on Sept 17 as scheduled and they will be calling three witnesses.

Meanwhile, lawyer Datuk Geethan Ram Vincent, who is representing Rosmah, said the defendant sought a sum of RM500, 000 as security costs and another application for an independent jeweller to assess four out of the 44 pieces of jewellery, which Rosmah alleged are now with the police.

"We are seeking a sum of RM500, 000 as security costs but the plaintiff is objecting to the amount. However, they agreed to the appointment of an independent jeweller to assess the four items, " he said, adding that the defendant asked for security costs as the case involved a foreign company.

Last Feb 14, the High Court ordered Rosmah to check and confirm in seven days the existence of the 44 pieces of jewellery that were in her possession before the seizure by police.

In its suit, Global Royalty claimed that on Feb 10, 2018, it sent 44 pieces of jewellery including diamond necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets and tiaras, each worth between US$124, 000 (RM519, 183) and US$925, 000 (RM3.8mil) to the defendant through hand-carry courier via its two agents.

The company said during delivery, Rosmah confirmed and accepted the terms, as well as conditions, in Memorandum No. 926 relating to the jewellery.

It also claimed that Rosmah, in a letter dated May 22, 2018, also confirmed and acknowledged receiving the jewellery concerned but said all the jewellery was no longer in her possession, and they had been confiscated and were now being kept by the Malaysian authorities.

Global Royalty is seeking the court's declaration that the firm is the owner of the 44 pieces of jewellery, apart from an order that ownership of the jewellery was not transferred to the defendant.

It is also seeking a mandatory order for Rosmah to provide a list of the jewellery seized, for the jewellery to be returned or for Rosmah to pay the price of the jewellery of US$14.79mil (RM59.83mil). - Bernama

BUKIT MERTAJAM (Bernama): Police have detained a man barely 24 hours after he impersonated a police officer before robbing a hotel receptionist in Jalan Permatang Batu here early Sunday (Aug 18) morning.

Ex IGP - Rescind his PR and send Zakir home

Rescind his PR and send Zakir home, says ex-IGP

Monday, 19 Aug 2019

PETALING JAYA: The government should rescind Zakir Naik’s Permanent Resident (PR) status and return him to India, says Tan Sri Rahim Noor (pic).

The former Inspector-General of Police urged the Pakatan Harapan government to do so given what he has done in his home country as well as in Malaysia.

“Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had commented that the government will consider rescinding his PR status if it is proven that he has committed criminal offences.

“Based on this statement, it looks like we must wait for the outcome of the investigation. However, my personal view is he had touched on religion and other matters that hurt the feelings of non-Muslims in the country, especially the Hindus. We should not wait for the outcome of the investigation.

“With solid evidence of what he said in Kelantan and what he did in India, I urge the government to revoke Zakir’s PR status and hand him over to the Indian government and let him face the laws there, ” he said yesterday.

Rahim said he is aware that certain parties might disagree with his view but they must ask themselves why there are many Islamic figures in India who are not facing legal problems except Zakir.

“There must be something that he did in his home country that is against the law as he was put on the wanted list by Indian authorities.

“We don’t need foreigners to come here and use religion to incite chaos and trouble.

“Do we need these type of people? To me, it is a big no, ” he said.

Rahim said he does not see any political ramifications on the part of the ruling government or opposition parties if the controversial speaker was sent back to India.

“(The government) should tell him to go back to India and face the laws there.

“He must be responsible for his actions and face it, as the Malay says, ‘berani buat, berani tanggung” (reap what you sow).

“The country should not be a “pak sanggup” (to blindly accept) in taking him in as we have no shortage of Islamic experts or scholars in the country, ” he said.

Rahim said as a patriot, he felt deeply hurt that a foreigner, who was granted PR, had the nerve to utter comments that could incite trouble among Malaysians of different religion and race.

“It only shows that he does not respect our way of life. Malaysians live in peace while respecting each other’s beliefs and ethnicity, ” he said.

Rahim also questioned why Zakir was granted PR status in 2015, given that he was wanted by the Indian government as well as his history of touching on sensitive matters that offended worshipers of other religions.

“How can such a foreigner be granted PR in the blink of an eye. To my knowledge, it’ll take years for someone to be given PR status, despite his or her contribution to the economy or social causes.“I also wonder whether proper due diligence and thorough background checks were conducted by the authorities before the PR was approved. Zakir is wanted by the Indian authorities in connection with his activities that infringed on the laws there and yet why did our country easily accept him then?

“I find it strange that the then government, approved his arrival in Malaysia and subsequently granted him PR, ” he said.

7 States have now banned Zakir Naik From Speaking. Time to Send Him Back to India.

Zakir Naik banned from speaking in Melaka, says Chief Minister


Monday, 19 Aug 201910:20 AM MYT

MELAKA: Zakir Naik has been barred from holding religious talks in the state, says Chief Minister Adly Zahari.

When contacted Sunday (Aug 19), Adly said the state government avoids any issues that could strain race relationships.

"We want to maintain this. So we decided not to allow Zakir to hold talks or gatherings here, " he said Sunday.

Doors are being closed to Zakir as seven states – Melaka, Johor, Selangor, Penang, Kedah, Perlis and Sarawak – have decided to bar the controversial preacher from speaking in public.

Kedah, Penang and Johor became the latest states to announce their objections to Zakir’s religious talks, which have drawn public flak over his combative style of propagating Islam.

Johor Religious Islamic Department (JAIJ) director Datuk Md Rofiki A. Shamsudin said it had never given Zakir any approval to conduct religious talks in the state.

“Any religious preacher must get the necessary approval from JAIJ before they are allowed to conduct religious talks. This is to ensure these preachers do not say anything against our creed or aqidah, ” he said.

Shortly after, Penang Deputy Chief Minister I Datuk Ahmad Zakiyuddin Abdul Rahman said the state would not welcome Zakir to its shores to speak at any public event, adding that this was a decision made six months ago.

“When Zakir visited us, we discussed several things, including his wish to have talks here in Penang.

“But we immediately told him that we felt whatever he wanted to talk about would not be suitable for the state, ” he said.

In Kedah, state Religious Affairs Committee chairman Datuk Dr Ismail Salleh reiterated that Zakir was barred from getting involved in any public event, adding that any of his ceramah would be put on hold as per police advice.

“Not only is Zakir Naik banned from giving ceramah in Kedah, we will also disallow anyone who poses a threat to the unity, harmony and security of the state, ” he said.

“We will not compromise on anything that will jeopardise the unity of the people, ” he added.

Selangor Islamic Council (Mais) chairman Datuk Mohammed Khusrin Munawi said the decision to prohibit Zakir from speaking or preaching in Selangor was made given the controversy surrounding him currently.

“We believe it’s best to not have him deliver talks in Selangor because of what is happening currently, ” he said when contacted.

According to Mohammed Khusrin, other preachers and religious scholars who want to deliver talks or hold events will also be first vetted by a committee that is chaired by the state mufti.

The Negri Sembilan government, however, had yet to decide whether to bar Zakir from giving public lectures in the state, said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun.

“Till now, we have not received any application asking for Zakir to be allowed to deliver talks here. If there is, then we will discuss it and decide, ” he said.

The Perak Religious Committee chairman Asmuni Awi said the state would not stop Zakir from speaking publicly but he must get permission first.

“Any ceramah where he will be speaking needs to get permission from the state Islamic Religious Department and the police.

“There are also procedures to follow before a permit is given. This is to ensure any activities held will not affect harmony in the state, ” he said.

“As of now, there are no applications to bring him into the state so the question of whether he is banned does not arise.”

The Sarawak government has banned Zakir from entering the state since the time when the late Tan Sri Adenan Satem was chief minister.

Last Friday (Aug 16), Sarawak confirmed that it had barred Zakir from entering on grounds that he could pose a potential danger to the ethnic and religious harmony of Sarawak.

Perlis banned Zakir from speaking at the “Malaysia Reverts Camp 2019” last Friday, citing concerns that his controversial remarks could affect racial harmony in the state.

On the same day, Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said Zakir would be banned from entering the state if there were reports of the preacher having extremist views.

“This is the state government’s jurisdiction but such a report hasn’t come to my knowledge yet, ” he said.

Over 1,000 people pay respects to late wife of restaurant chain founder

Over 1,000 people pay respects to late wife of restaurant chain founder=

Sunday, 18 Aug 201912:21 PM MYT


BUTTERWORTH: More than 1,000 people thronged the residence of V. Harikrishnan in Taman Riang here Saturday (Aug 18) to pay their respects to his late wife K. Puvaneswary.

Harikrishnan is the founder of Sri Ananda Bahwan restaurant chain.

As the final rites were performed, many openly wept and surged forward to offer prayers and see her face for the last time.

The touching funeral ceremony was led by a marching band as the hearse, decked with flowers and Sri Ananda Bahwan flags, made its way to the Hindu cemetery in Jalan Siram for the cremation.

Puvaneswary, 47, died Thursday (Aug 15) when the Range Rover that the couple and their three sons were travelling in was involved in an accident on the North-South Expressway.

Their eldest son Veerasamy, 21, said he was finding it hard to accept that his mother was no longer with them.

"My dad, brothers and I loved her very much. We are a close-knit family. We will miss her a great deal. She had the most beautiful smile.

"Mum worked very hard with dad, uncle, aunty and our other relatives.

"She sacrificed a lot of time on the family-run business, including the Sri Ananda Sakthi Silk House, which was close to her heart," he said Saturday (Aug 17).

Penang Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy, who was at the funeral with many other dignitaries, extended his condolences to Harikrishnan on the loss of his wife.

In the tragedy at around 3am Thursday, the family were on their way back to Penang from Ipoh when the car skidded off the road at KM200.9 on the North-South Expressway.

Puvaneswary, seated in the back seat, died on the spot, while Harikrishnan, 51, sustained injuries to his face and broke his right finger.

Their other sons Mehgulan and Navinsamy sustained injuries to their knees and hands.

A post-mortem revealed that Puvaneswary died of severe traumatic head injury.

As a mark of respect, the Ananda Bahwan chain of restaurants nationwide were closed for business for three days, from Thursday to Saturday.

Controversial preacher Zakir Naik overstepped boundaries when he touched on racial politics and stirred racial tension in the country, says Tun Dr Mahathir

Dr M: Zakir Naik 'crossed the line' when he touched on racial politics


Sunday, 18 Aug 20196:22 PM MYT

KUALA LUMPUR: Controversial preacher Zakir Naik overstepped boundaries when he touched on racial politics and stirred racial tension in the country, says Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The Prime Minister said he was not sure who had given him the permanent residence status but regardless, those holding the status cannot participate in politics.

"Religious teachers can preach but he was not doing that. He was talking about sending Chinese back to China and Indians back to India. That's politics," Dr Mahathir said in a press conference after launching the 62nd International Statistical Institute World Statistics Congress 2019 on Sunday (Aug 18).

Recently, it was reported that Penang, Perlis, Kedah and Sarawak have banned Zakir from speaking publicly in their states.

Dr Mahathir said that the government was careful about how it said things that were sensitive to the different communities in this country.

"I have never said this kind of things. But he tells the Chinese to go back.

"If you want to talk about religion, go ahead, then it is permissible. We don't want to stop him from that. But it is quite clear he wants to participate in racial politics in Malaysia. Now, he is stirring up racial feelings. That is bad," said the Prime Minister.

Because of that, Dr Mahathir said that the police will have to investigate, whether he is causing tension or not, which in his opinion, he obviously was.

The Prime Minister also said the rule of law will be imposed on Zakir as he is alleged to have preached on racial politics and riled up racial tension.

"Whatever action we take will be in accordance with the law. This government respects the rule of law," he said.

During a religious talk in Kota Baru, Kelantan on Aug 8, Zakir responded to calls for his deportation by saying that the Malaysian Chinese should "go back" first as they were the "old guests" of the country.

Prior to this, Zakir had said Hindus in Malaysia were more loyal to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi than to Dr Mahathir.

A screengrab of the video.

MELAKA: A social activist has condemned a video of a man allegedly threatening non-Malays while displaying sharp weapons.

Melaka Consumer and Environment Association (PPASM) education and woman bureau chief Azizah Harun urged every Malaysian to lodge a police report against the man who claims to be from Johor.

"You're giving my religion a bad name, we are peaceful people and not a violent community like what you've painted.

"We are living in a new age, not 1969, where people can judge right from wrong without blaming other races," she said in a statement on Sunday (Aug 18).

Azizah said all hell would break loose should other communities post similar intimidating videos.

"Why blame the current generation when our founding fathers had already laid the Federal Constitution," she said, adding that claims that "the minorities were bullying the majority don't make sense at all".

Hence, Azizah said Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik should look into introducing the true history of this country.

"The contribution of other races are not told to the younger generation when there are documented evidences from the British," she said.

Azizah said the public have lost the mood to celebrate National Day amid recent racial and religious tensions.

"The current government has failed to quell sensitive issues quickly and it is getting worse now," she added.

She said the actions of the man in the video are against the true teachings of Islam.

"My religion teaches me noble values and reminds me that life is temporary in this world.

"I hope right thinking Malaysians will condemn such act," she added.

The three-minute and 19-second video that went viral shows a man allegedly threatening non-Malays with violence, while brandishing various sharp weapons.

ALOR SETAR: Kedah has become the second state, after Perlis, to ban controversial preacher Zakir Naik (pic) from speaking publicly.

Sinar Harian reported on Saturday (Aug 17) that Kedah Religious Affairs Committee chairman Datuk Dr Ismail Salleh had said that while Zakir was welcome within the state's borders, he may not involve himself in any public events in the state.

"We prioritise the harmony of the people now. Don't add oil to fire, lest the fire gets bigger.

"We will not put the unity we have at risk, " he said.
On Friday (Aug 16), Perlis police chief Senior Asst Comm Noor Mushar Mohd said Zakir and his family, who were supposed to speak at a religious event there this weekend, were ordered not to do so.

Proton launched its first limited production SUV | Proton X70 Merdeka Edition introduced, priced at RM126,100

Proton X70 Merdeka Edition introduced, priced at RM126,100
By CARSIFU | 16 August 2019

SUBANG JAYA: Proton today launched its first limited production SUV when it unveiled the Proton X70 Merdeka Edition (ME) at its dealer, Ming Heng Motor’s 4S showroom, in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur.

Available only as a Premium variant X70, 62 units of the X70 ME will be offered at RM126,100 in snow white or flame red only.

The number of units being built coincides with the 62nd anniversary of Malaysia’s independence. Proton is aiming to wrap up the sales of the special edition during the Merdeka month of August, based on current demand levels for the SUV.

Mechanically, the X70 ME is identical in specification to a regular Premium variant of the SUV. The differences are made up of an exterior styling package and some additional interior trim.

For the exterior, a signature paint colour called Quartz Black has been added to the roof and A-pillar. Door visors have also been added all-around together with a rear bumper scuff plate and, as a finishing touch, a customised Merdeka Edition emblem has been mounted on the tailgate.

Inside, Proton have added new floor mats, a trunk mat and a special numbered Merdeka Edition emblem to make each vehicle unique. The Nappa leather seats and glass roof along with the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) found on the Premium variant are all carried over in the ME.

“The Proton X70 Merdeka Edition was born out of Proton’s desire to celebrate Malaysia’s Merdeka anniversary month. We are extremely thankful for the support Malaysian car buyers and the Malaysian government has shown to Proton, so this is the company’s way of creating a special version of the X70 as a small gesture of thanks to all Malaysians,” said Proton CEO Dr Li Chunrong.

Ecstasy in the Malaysian camp as the team gets the fourth goal to beat Indonesia 4-3 in extra time. – FAM

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia has qualified for their second straight final in the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Under-19 Championships after beating Indonesia 4-3 in extra time at the Binh Duong Stadium in Vietnam on Saturday (Aug 17).

Harith Haiqal turned hero twice as he scored the equaliser to bring the game into extra time, and then scored the winning goal to help the Young Tigers maul the Young Garudas.

Malaysia drew first blood in the 18th minute when Mukhairi Ajmal’s knuckleball freekick was deflected off the Indonesian wall, and Aimann Afif Md Afizul was quick to pounce on the loose ball to beat goalkeeper Emando Ari Sutaryadi.

Indonesia’s fought back in the 44th minute when Beckham Putra Nugraha was the beneficiary of a beautiful cutback from Mohammad Supriadi.


He made sure he escaped the attention of Mukhairi by thumping the ball past Sikh Izhan.

In the second half, striking sensation Luqman Hakim gave Malaysia the lead again in the 55th minute when he beat Emando with a thumping right-footed shot from outside the box.

However, the lead was short-lived as captain David Maulana released Fajar Fathur Rachman with a brilliant through-pass, and the latter took advantage of a suspect defence by dinking the ball over an onrushing Sikh Izhan to give Indonesia the equaliser.

A minute later, Indonesia got the lead when a breathtaking counter-attack saw Salman Alfarid scoring the third goal.

It was end-to-end stuff in the second half as Malaysia got a penalty in the 83rd minute and midfielder Harith buried from the spot to bring the game into extra-time.

Malaysia, capitalising on Indonesia’s weariness, charged into the lead in the 96th minute through Harith, who accurately read Mukhairi’s freekick into the far post and planted a header from an acute angle to beat Emando.

Indonesia tried thier best to get an equaliser, but Malaysia’s defence stayed strong and will now either face Myanmar or Australia on Monday.

MARAN: The King and Queen delivered a special gift to Syafirah Hanum Chik, a woman with Down Syndrome here – by singing Tan Sri P. Ramlee’s Tanya Sama Pokok to her.

Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah sang for the 23-year-old after learning it was her favourite song, while visiting her Taman Sri Keramat home.

The woman’s mother, Salmah Ali, told Bernama she was stunned when Tunku Azizah started singing the song before asking Sultan Abdullah to join in.

Salmah, 59, said the royal couple smiled when Syafirah reacted to the song.

“I felt honoured, ” said the former kindergarten assistant.

She added that the royal couple repeatedly told her to be extra patient in taking care of her daughter.

Syafirah is one of three chronically ill residents at Taman Sri Keramat, whom the royal couple met during their visit to Maran.

Meanwhile, pensioner Mohd Yusof Mohd Idris, 78, said he could not believe it when told that the King and Queen were coming to visit his wife, Som @ Salmah Omar, 71, who is paralysed due to a stroke.

He said he immediately got busy tidying up their house to make it presentable for “the visit of a lifetime”.

“I was not feeling very well myself but all tiredness and aches went away when I heard that the King and Queen were coming to my house. It was like a dream.

“I was touched when Tunku Azizah, who was holding my wife’s hand, felt that the bed was not working well and Sultan Abdullah immediately ordered an official from the Health Department, who was present, to check it, ” he said.

Boy Iman's eight-year marriage ends

Financial woes, dwindling business end actor Boy Iman's eight-year marriage

Malay Mail16 August 2019

Boy Iman and Kumala were married for more than eight years before deciding to part ways. — Picture from Instagram/datoboyiman_dbiMore

PETALING JAYA, Aug 16 — Actor Boy Iman has confirmed that he and his wife Kumala Dewi Anas have officially parted in April earlier this year.

Boy, whose real name is Datuk Dr Noruliman A. Rahman, confirmed the divorce in an Instagram post and confessed that he and Kumala initially struggled to accept the “bitter” reality of their separation.

In an interview with Malay portal mStar, Boy Iman did not deny that financial troubles and a failing business venture were among the causes for the split.

Accusations in 2017 painted him as the mastermind behind an affordable housing scam through the company DBI Homes but Boy Iman was quick to label the rumours as “slander.”

He emphasised that these were not the main reasons that influenced the recent decision to divorce.

“I do not deny that the breakdown of our marriage was due to problems related to my business but it was not the root cause.

“What couple wants to divorce? We tried to face this issue calmly for the sake of our kids.

“Maybe it’s our tendency to act on feelings first that became the main reason for this split,” he was quoted as saying.

Boy Iman added that he and Kumala have split up twice previously, in 2015 and again in 2017, but had reconciled on both occasions.

Despite the marital hardships, Boy Iman says there’s no bad blood between him and his ex-wife and they continue to celebrate festive periods like Hari Raya together as a family.

The couple were married in November 2011 and have a six-year-old son together and a 19-year-old daughter from Kumala’s previous marriage.

SEREMBAN: The family of Nora Anne Quoirin has claimed the Irish teenager’s body from the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital here.

The body was taken out of the Forensic Medicine Department at 12.42am today. However, Nora Anne’s parents, Sebastien Marie Philipe and Meabh Jaseprine Quoirin, were not seen at the compound of the department.

The van transporting the body arrived at the compound of the department at 12.38am, escorted by several policemen.

The body of the 15-year-old special-needs girl was found on Tuesday about 2.5km from an eco-resort in Pantai here after she went missing on Aug 4, a day after she and her family had checked in for a two-week holiday.

The police revealed on Thursday that Nora Anne had died of gastrointestinal bleeding after having gone without food for a long time, as well as prolonged stress.

They ruled out foul play and said she had died two or three days before the body was found.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad waves during his visit to AirAsia’s RedQ headquarters in Sepang today. He is flanked by Transport Minister Loke Siew Fook and AirAsia X chairman Rafidah Aziz.

SEPANG: Dr Mahathir Mohamad today said the government will review the rates of the passenger service charge (PSC), or airport tax, after the High Court ordered AirAsia in July to pay RM40.6 million to Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd in unpaid fees.

He agreed that it was not fair for low-cost airline passengers using klia2 to be charged the same amount of PSC as premium airline passengers using KL International Airport (KLIA).

“We’re studying the structure of our taxes so that we can be fair to everyone,” he told reporters after an official visit to AirAsia’s RedQ headquarters here.

AirAsia had refused to collect the full RM73 in PSC from passengers departing klia2 to non-Asean destinations, after the tax was increased by RM23 from the previous RM50.

Following the court ruling, the airline started to collect the additional RM23 in PSC, saying it was doing so “under strong protest”.

Mahathir also said the government is considering postponing the implementation of the departure levy, which is set to start in September.

Asked if the government is considering the move, he simply said: “We will look into that.”

The levy, announced by the finance ministry earlier this month, will see passengers flying out of the country paying between RM8 and RM150 from Sept 1.

Travellers heading to Asean countries in economy class will have to pay RM8, while a RM50 levy will be imposed on those flying in other than economy class

Those flying to non-Asean countries will be charged RM20 if they fly economy class, while those flying other than economy class will need to pay RM150.

The departure levy had been proposed in Budget 2019 by the government, which said it was to encourage the development of domestic tourism.

KOTA KINABALU: Mahkamah Pilihan Raya hari ini mengisytiharkan kemenangan bekas menteri luar, Anifah Aman di kerusi Parlimen Kimanis pada pilihan raya umum ke-14 tahun lalu tidak sah dan terbatal.

Hakim, Lee Heng Chung memutuskan 284 undi tambahan di sebuah pusat mengundi tidak dilakukan dengan betul, manakala 57 undi tamabahn didapati ditambah secara tidak betul di sebuah lagi pusat mengundi.

Beliau mendapati undi tambahan itu ialah faktor yang menjejaskan keputusan di Kimanis dan Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya melanggar Seksyen 32(b) Akta Kesalahan Pilihan Raya, oleh itu pilihan raya kecil perlu diadakan di kerusi berkenaan.

Bagaimanapun, peguam Tengku Fuad Ahmad yang mewakili Anifah memberitahu FMT, mereka akan memfailkan rayuan di Mahkamah Persekutuan.

Naik dan keluarganya terpaksa membatalkan hasrat menyertai program “Malaysia Reverts Camp 2019” di Perlis hari ini, selepas polis negeri melarang mereka berucap atau memberi ceramah di negeri itu.

Ketua Polis Perlis, Noor Mushar Mohd dilaporan berkata, lebih 150 laporan dibuat terhadap Naik setakat ini, susulan kenyataan kontroversinya dalam satu siri ceramah di Kelantan minggu lalu yang mencetuskan ketegangan kaum.

Desakan untuk Naik dihantar pulang ke India meningkat, susulan ceramahnya di Kelantan yang mendakwa penganut Hindu di Malaysia lebih setia kepada Perdana Menteri India, Narendra Modi berbanding Dr Mahathir Mohamad walaupun diberikan lebih “100 kali” hak berbanding umat Islam di India.

Naik yang dikehendaki pihak berkuasa India atas dakwaan pengubahan wang dan mempunyai status penduduk tetap di Malaysia turut dilaporkan berkata, orang Cina juga dianggap “tetamu” di negara ini.

Tetapi, Naik semalam berkata, komennya mengenai orang Cina bertujuan “menempelak ahli politik Cina berpengaruh” yang bersetuju dengan pihak yang menggelarnya “tetamu” di Malaysia.

Beliau turut menyalahkan mereka yang membencinya memetik ceramahnya di luar konteks demi memfitnahnya.

Semalam, Menteri Dalam Negeri, Muhyiddin Yassin dilaporkan berkata polis akan memanggil Naik, kumpulan pendidikan Cina, Dong Zong dan taikun Perak, Koon Yew Yin selepas menerima beberapa laporan berhubung kenyataan mereka.

Seksyen 504 Kanun Keseksaan ialah sengaja mengaibkan dengan niat hendak membangkitkan pecah keamanan yang membawa hukuman penjara sehingga 2 tahun atau denda atau kedua-duanya sekali, jika sabit kesalahan.
