LGE's cover up?

Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) in Penang fell sharply in the past four years, from RM10.451 billion in 2010 to RM1.794 billion last year.

That was almost a 900 per cent drop.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng must explain; or at least clarify on the matter. There's nothing to hide if there are truth to allegations that the Pakatan Rakyat-led government had done little to woo foreign investors to Penang.
GEORGE TOWN: Barisan Nasional today challenged Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to show courage by admitting that foreign direct investments (FDIs) in Penang had fallen sharply in the past four years.
Addressing a press conference at the Gerakan office here, Penang BN chairman Teng Chang Yeow said the FDIs had dropped from RM10.451 billion in 2010 to RM1.794 billion last year.
He contrasted Lim's alleged tendency to hide the truth with what he said was the transparent attitude of Gerakan's Koh Tsu Koon, who was Penang's chief minister when BN was in power.
He said Koh used to readily disclose FDI figures every year but Lim, in an attempt to paint an impressive picture, had totalled up the 2010-to-2013 figures to show RM20.517 billion.
"Koh would admit if there was a drop and acknowledge when there was a hike," Teng said. "Lim should emulate Koh in telling the truth."
He said Lim was misleading the public in a ruse to justify his administration's project to expand the Penang International Airport (PIA) with two runways and a cargo and maintenance hub.
Penang is not Kelantan. Barisan Nasional government had laid a strong foundation by establishing the country's first free trade zone (FTZ) in the state during the 1970s.

If Teng's allegations are true, Lim should take another look at his administration's approach.

Family and friends of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370's pilot Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah have reacted angrily to the latest The Sunday Times report that named him as the prime suspect in the plane's disappearance.

They have also rubbished the accusations levelled at Captain Zaharie in the report, describing it as irresponsible reporting as it did not name its sources.

"It merely mentioned special branch police. Give us names. Who is the person who said all this? Our police also have to come up with a statement on this matter," said Dr Mohd Ghouse Mohd Noor, a friend of Captain Zaharie's family.
"We are not defending Captain Zaharie blindly but every statement should be backed up by substantial evidence and proof or else it would end up being just another speculation," he said.
Ghouse said the captain's family was upset after reading the news report earlier today.
The report in The Sunday Times in UK said that mechanical failure or terrorism has not been ruled out, but the police believed that if it was the result of human action, the captain was the most likely perpetrator.
The report, which was also carried in The Australian, said Malaysia's special branch had focused the inquiry on Captain Zaharie after intelligence checks failed to substantiate any suspicions about the other people on board the jet.
Deriding the report as "an example of gutter journalism", Ghouse said: "I read it carefully. The reporting was very vague. It said Captain Zaharie is a prime suspect if it was the result of human action.
"They do not even know what happened to the plane. Find the black box, find the plane first and put everything on the table before coming out to blame Captain Zaharie," he said.
He also said there was a vacuum in such reporting which opened the door to speculation and allegations.
Some newspapers' headlines worldwide today published the report that Zaharie was described as "in no state of mind to fly", and now Malaysian police believe if the disappearance of flight MH370 was a human act, he was the perpetrator.

Malaysian police have told The Sunday Times in London that an investigation into the people on board flight 370 has cleared everyone except the pilot.

But did our police really tell that to the daily? Bukit Aman should clarify this matter!
Police have not ruled out other causes of the crash, such as mechanical failure or terrorism, The Sunday Times reported, however they have suggested that if human intervention was to blame for the plane's disappearance then Captain Zaharie was the likely perpetrator.
In March a friend of Captain Zaharie told The New Zealand Herald the disappearance of the Boeing 777 on March 8 with 239 passengers and crew on board happened as Captain Zaharie's world was crumbling.
He had been facing serious family problems, including separation from his wife and relationship problems with another woman he was seeing, the friend said.
