Enough la, Karpal!

Lawyer stalwart Karpal Singh is a dodger, trying to win sympathy for boss Anwar Ibrahim and himself by making up another fiddle stick story - that the government will 'keep Anwar in jail as long as it could' to keep him off politics.

The DAP chairman also felt that Putrajaya was 'working with the prosecutors' to get the Federal Court turn down Anwar's appeal and add to the 5-year jail sentence imposed the Court of Appeal on March 7.

What craps!

Karpal, Anwar and the rest of the Opposition leaders have been accusing PM Najib Tun Razak of 'controlling the courts and judges' to condemn Anwar to prison although one of the three judges who slapped the jail sentence on the Opposition Leader is a PAS supporter.
Putrajaya looks to have turned the screws further on Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim after prosecutors filed a cross-appeal to enhance the five-year jail term against the opposition leader who was found guilty of sodomy last month.
His lawyer Karpal Singh said further Anwar's appeal against the conviction and sentence appeared to be expedited for hearing in the Federal Court as the court registry had already sent him part of the appeal records.
"After going through the records, I found that the prosecution has appealed to enhance Anwar's jail term," Karpal told The Malaysian Insider.
This comes almost two weeks after Putrajaya had also cross-appealed against a lighter sentence imposed on Karpal who was found guilty of sedition.
On March 11, Karpal was fined RM4,000 but the prosecution filed a cross-appeal, urging the Court of Appeal to impose a stiffer penalty.
In Anwar's case, a three-man Court of Appeal bench sentenced the PKR de facto leader to five year's jail after allowing Putrajaya's appeal to set aside the High Court decision which had acquitted him.
Anwar, who is the Permatang Pauh MP, risks losing his parliamentary seat and could see his political career coming to a premature end should the apex court uphold the Court of Appeal ruling.
Under the Federal Constitution, an elected representative is disqualified from office if fined more than RM2,000 or jailed for a term exceeding one year.
The sodomy punishment under Section 377B of the Penal Code carries a jail term of up to 20 years and the offender shall also liable to whipping.
"In filing the cross-appeal, I believe the prosecution wants the Federal Court to impose a jail term beyond five years. Whipping Anwar is out of question because he is 66 years old," Karpal said.

No way to become Malaysians again!

There's no exact figure home many Malaysians had lost their citizenship - either by renouncing it or stripped off - but since 1990, the figure was estimated at 25,000 (government gazette 2011). Most of them were in the US, Australia and UK.

While many foreigners had applied for Malaysian PR and citizenship, Malaysians (many of them were Malaysian Chinese) who lost such a status found it difficult to get it invoked, especially those stripped off it.

Some also lost it due to negligence, especially students and workers who failed to inform our embassy about their presence overseas.

However, by fault or default, I support what Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said about 'getting back the citizenship status' - it will not going to be easy because once they denounced it, there is no short cut to get it back since they are already 'foreigners!'
He said Malaysians who renounced their citizenship would find it very hard to get it back, as stated under Regulation 16A of the Immigration Regulations 1963.
"Those who renounce their citizenship will not be forgiven, unless stated in the Regulation 16A, Immigration Regulations 1963.
"So, don't simply renounce your citizenship, don't hate the country, don't leave it with hatred and simply take the first citizenship offer found," he told reporters after opening the 'Jom Sihat' programme organised by Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) in Bagan Datoh, today.
He said Malaysian citizens holding a Resident Pass to work or study abroad, on the other hand, would find the process for them to return home, very easy.
"This is because they are professional talents and academicians who will bring along their knowledge home to help Malaysia's development," he said.
Its a matter of loyalty to the country.

I sometimes wonder why some of us have such a stinking attitude - denouncing Malaysia, then migrated to other country and many years later claimed that they have every right to get their Malaysian citizenship invoked!

We do not need these kind of people in our home anymore. They chose to denounce the status and may as well their live and die where they are now.

When other nationals - not few but thousands - were 'begging' to become our citizen, our own people who had betrayed the country must not be considered a comeback, unless for good and tangible reasons!

They were not proud of Malaysia. To most of them, Malaysia is the worst country to stay! If they want to visit the country, they can do so - as foreigners!
