Scoop: DAP knows where MH370 is!

Posted: 13 Apr 2014 09:35 PM PDT

No. Its not a mickey. DAP seems to know everything about MH370 - where the plane had landed or crashed, who was responsible and how low or high it flew before disappearing from the radar, and even knows how to locate it without any help from the 25 countries!

Fantastic, isn't it? Jack of all trades.

And it was for that very reason that Lim Kit Siang & Friends, including Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim had been insisting Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to form the Cabinet Select Committee on MH370 - to be headed by him or Anwar.

Anwar 'Mr Radar' has been going around questioning and belittling the method of investigation and search and rescue (SAR) operations which combines 26 countries, arguing too much about the failure of existing radars to detect the plane.

Together with Anwar, Lim Kit Siang also accused the government of covering the whole truth about MH370 incident, insinuating that it could be the work of Umno or Barisan Nasional - similar to what Tian Chua said about Lahad Datu incident last year, that the Suluk intrusion, the death of our security personnel and the 'war' were carried out accordingly to Umno's script.

While mocking at all media conferences by Defense and acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Tun Hussein as 'non significant', Lim claimed the setting up of the Opposition-led Cabinet Select Committe will be able to solve the problem! 
Who is right, Hishammuddin or CNN?
Unless CNN is prepared to name the "senior Malaysian government official and another source" to substantiate its report, it would be difficult for anyone to accept it as gospel truth.
But the bare denial by Hishammuddin, after the drips and drabs of information being doled out; clarifications, confusions and contradictions; frequent twists and turns and "flip-flops" and the vast "black holes" in information in the past 35 days of the MH370 disaster is just not adequate, satisfactory or acceptable.
If an opposition-headed Parliamentary Select Committee on the MH 370 has been set up before the Dewan Rakyat adjourned yesterday, it would be a proper body to investigate into the veracity or otherwise of the CNN report that Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) had scrambled its search aircraft on the morning of the missing Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777, but did not inform the authorities until three days later, and come out with a credible and authoritative report to back Hishammuddin's denial and put all doubts on the matter to rest.
In fact, the Parliamentary Select Committee could not only inquire whether RMAF had scrambled search aircraft on the morning of March 8 at about 8 am, but also:
whether or why there was no scrambling of RMAF search aircraft when the military radar tracked MH370 as having diverted from its course from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, when in the first few minutes between 1.40 and 1.45 am, at least two RMAF Sukhoi-30s from Gong Kedak could have been scrambled to intercept the jetliner in Kelantan airspace; and
why a second chance was lost to intercept the plane when it approached Penang and it was picked up on the military radar in Butterworth, although the RMAF with its F/A squadron was on 24-hour standby at the airbase.
These and many other questions have been waiting for answer in the past 35-days of the MH 370 disaster, but as I said in Parliament in the presence of the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Hishammuddin on March 25 (18th Day), I agree that the utmost priority must continue to be given to SAR – search and rescue – operation and the many questions that have arisen about the whole tragedy, including the crisis management, can wait until the discovery of the aircraft and hopefully, the passengers and crew on board.
This is now 35th Day of the MH370 disaster. I have just received reports that a Perth radio station has announced "Unconfirmed report says Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 black box has been found", and quoting an aviation expert as saying that if these "unconfirmed reports are firm enough to say we have located the black box, that is enough for them to launch the Bluefin 21 to go down to the bottom and take photographs or scan the bottom with a sonar scanner".
I hope this is not another false alarm as the families of the 239 passengers and crew are awaiting for a closure.
So, Lim 'Mr Sonar' knows exactly what to do to speed up SAR for MH370, and maybe would guarantee all 239 crew and passengers are still alive!

Pakatan Rakyat (maybe) also know where and how to retrieve the black box, perhaps by hiring Aladdin!

Anwar was supposed to give a briefing last Thursday on MH370 but he wasn't feeling well. Let's hope he has recovered by now and ready to address the Parliament of the nation about Pakatan Rakyat's 'findings' on the missing plane.

O-oh, another thing. DAP should also ask ally PAS to ask Allah where the plane is. Since PAS leaders claim that their party is more Islamic and each and every of its follower and supporter will go to heaven, I think PAS can do that. They are closer to God, right. To them, Umno is 'kafir'.

To Najib and Hisham, why not we hand over the bucket of MH370 to Anwar, Lim Kit Siang and Hadi Awang - they can find the plane in one day, all by themselves!

BOC: Right procedures are observed

Posted: 13 Apr 2014 03:50 AM PDT

Why the brouhaha and ramblings about Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's statement on Friday that three BOC (British Overseas Citizen) from Malaysia are allowed to come home? Why was there discontentment among some Malaysians who 'warned' the government not to allow their return?

Those three are not the ones who tore or threw away their Malaysian passports. Their had their BOC for lack of knowledge about immigration law after studying and working in the UK for too long, and failed to inform the Malaysian High Commision of their status.

They had to apply for BOC after discovering their status as Malaysians was 'revoked', and since they must have a citizenship, it left them to no choice but to seek the British assistance. They were not aware that they already lost their Malaysian citizenship until they decided to 'come home'.

Even so, the Home Ministry will only issue them with special pass. They still need to apply by nomal procedure to get their citizenship back.

Zahid said it will not going to be easy. The Malaysian and British authorities will exchange info on any BOC holders before Putrajaya makes a decision to accept or reject their application.
The three were not given citizenship or permanent resident status, but only the Resident's Pass to enable them to be in this country legally in line with the Regulation 16A, Immigration Regulations 1963.
"The Malaysian government will not give citizenship status automatically. This is because some of them had torn the Malaysian passport while they were abroad as they hated this country and did not want to come back because of this hatred, and some have stabbed the country in the back. They no longer have any loyalty (to this country).
"If holders of the Resident's Pass wish to regain their citizenship status, they need to undergo the process undergone by foreign nationals wishing to apply and must wait 17 years and prove their loyalty to the country and fulfill the application requirements including the proficiency test in the Malay Language.
The media had earlier reported that Tanjung Member of Parliament Ng Wei Aik had said that the government had agreed to bring back more than 500 former Malaysian nationals who had given up their citizenship to become citizens of the United Kingdom (UK).
BOC passport holders are Malaysian citizens who have chosen to give up their citizenship to apply for a UK citizenship. However, the British Nationality Act 1981 (BNA 1981) had been amended on July 4, 2002 whereby they would only be granted the UK citizensip if they were no longer Malaysian citizens on or before July 4, 2002.
The three lost their Malaysian citizenship by default. Their own mistake and negligence. The Home Ministry had ratified it with British immigration and after a series of investigation found out that they did not aware of their status.

The ministry also established the fact that the three did not give up their Malaysian citizenship like others did but continuously stayed and worked in the UK without 'reporting' to the Malaysian mission in London.

Some quarters had asked Zahid to announce the date of their (the three) return. They want to wait for their arrival at the KLIA and protest, something 'not very wise' to do!

The RP (resident pass) was not only given to BOC holders. There are other non-BOC holders who were issued with it, especially those who had stayed in Australia, the US and in other countries for too long enough that led to their Malaysian status dropped.

Whether they are Chinese, Malays or Indians, those who lost their citizenship over their own ignorance of the immigration policy, deserve consideration.

However, anyone with bad anti-Malaysia record will forever remain as a foreigner in our land!

Zahid is not to be blamed. The ministry always keep to its standard procedure, laws and provisions when attending to such cases, and there shouldn't be any doubt.
