I read Tony Tan’s statement which accused Tony Pua’s wife of stashing RM3million abroad with abhorrence and disgust. I described him as “rascal” in my FB because he was and he is a rascal.

I must correct the mistake made by most journalists when they describe him as my former PA. I wish to reiterate here that this man has NEVER EVER been my PA, he was only one of the former volunteer assistants in my DAP Seputeh service center for about two years.

He doesn’t understand the English language but only understands Chinese and can only speak broken Bahasa Malaysia.

He was formerly a MCA member, he came over to the DAP after he apparently failed to get higher compensation for the squatters at the 4th mile Old Klang Road during the road expansion programme in 2001–2003.

When he was in DAP Seputeh, he was a nuisance and there were also allegations of financial improprieties against him in running programs in the party. He has also pitting members against each other. In the end, I had no choice but to finally terminate his services.

After he left my service centre, he got involved in some temples in my constituency. A year later, a Chinese temple committee member one (Chi Yuan Gong) came to me and complained about Tony Tan’s mishandling of the temple’s funds. I then exposed it to the media together with members of the temple committee.

Tony Tan then sued me and the temple committe members for defamation. He has changed a few lawyers and he finally lost the case and substantial cost was awarded to me. I then proceeded to execute the court’s decision against him and finally got the court to adjudge him a bankrupt when he could not pay.

In short, Tony Tan is morally and financially bankrupt. He slandered me during my General Elections 12 & 13 campaign. He also went around defaming other DAP leaders.

After GE13, an old lady came to my office and complained that a man who claimed to be my assistant has rented her double-story house in OUG for more than half a year but never paid rent. I then discovered that this man was Tony Tan.

I strongly believe that he is being paid by BN to defame me and other DAP leaders. This is how he survives … a BN stooge.

I just wish to urge the media not to credit him with the designation as “Teresa Kok’s former PA” when describing him in future news reports. Please …….thank you

Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man says any attempt to form a federal opposition coalition without PAS will fail as the Islamist party is the main opposition party in Malaysia. ― File pic

KUALA LUMPUR, July 24 ― PAS is ready to operate on its own if it is excluded from the new opposition coalition dubbed by some as “Pakatan 2.0”, party deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man has said.

The PAS leader was quoted by Sinar Harian today as saying that the Islamist party has experience being alienated in the past and and has worked on its own without the help of other opposition parties.

“PAS does not care seeing as the PAS now has more than one million members and PAS is considered as dominant among the opposition parties in this country,” Tuan Ibrahim had reportedly said.

“PAS is also fortifying the party through tours in (all) states plus gatherings at night,” he added.

But Tuan Ibrahim said, however, that any attempt to form a federal opposition coalition without PAS will fail as the Islamist party is the main opposition party in Malaysia.

“Any coalition without PAS will leave the said coalition unstable and not strong,” he claimed.

Pakatan Rakyat (PR) was declared dead by the DAP shortly after PAS decided during its June 6 muktamar to cut ties with its ally over a number of key ideological differences like its plan to introduce hudud in Kelantan.

After the declaration, the Penang government announced that it no longer considers itself to be a PR government.

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the state leadership, with the consensus of all 30 DAP, PKR and PAS assemblymen, has decided that its administration should be referred to as just the “Penang state government” while the state will continue to be governed according to the now-defunct pact’s 2009 Common Policy Framework.

KUALA LUMPUR, July 23 — Dow Jones & Company has told lawyers acting for Datuk Seri Najib Razak that there was no need for them to ask if Wall Street Journal (WSJ) had meant to accuse the Malaysian prime minister of misappropriating funds as the business daily’s reports provide a clear answer to their questions.

In its reply to Najib’s lawyers signed off by Dow Jones’ counsel and chief compliance officer Jason P. Conti, the US publisher that owns WSJ said that the two articles in question— a July 2 news report titled “Malaysia leader’s accounts probed” and an opinion piece on July 6 titled “Scandal in Malaysia” – were based on available facts.

“In your letter you ‘seek confirmation as to whether it is [our] position as taken in [The News Article and The Opinion] that [your] Client misappropriated nearly USD700 million belonging to 1Malaysia Development Berhad’,” Conti wrote in his reply for Dow Jones, referring to the July 8 request for confirmation from Najib’s lawyers in Hafarizam Wan & Aisha Mubarak Advocates & Solicitors.

KUALA LUMPUR, July 22 — In the wake of opposition lawmaker Tony Pua’s criticism of 1 Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), a former DAP member has accused the Petaling Jaya Utara MP of parking RM3 million abroad in his wife’s name.

Tony Tan Chee Chon, a former personal assistant to DAP vice-chairman Teresa Kok who parted ways with the party under a cloud in 2007, claimed to have documents to back his allegation.

“Pua always asks about government accounts and say they must be transparent, but he should first declare his wealth,” he told a news conference here that had been organised by the Ramesh Rao Krishnan Naidu, the man behind the recent controversial 1MDB-Sarawak Report video confession by Sarawakian Lester Melanyi.

Seputeh MP Teresa Kok pointed out that by restricting access to SR’s website, Putrajaya has gone against the Multimedia Super Corridor Bill of Guarantee No. 7 which ensures foreign investors that there will be no censorship of the internet. — Picture by Choo Choy May

KUALA LUMPUR, July 22 — The government should have just sued Sarawak Report instead of blocking it as by doing so, they created an “unmitigated political disaster,” DAP MP Teresa Kok said.

The Seputeh MP added that with Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission’s (MCMC) move to block access here to the whistleblower site is merely an indication that Putrajaya has a lot more to hide than it has led on.

“If Sarawak Report has published fabricated lies, why can’t the government take legal action against it instead of blocking it?

“I wonder whether any leader in Barisan Nasional have (sic) the courage to tell Najib the truth that the move to block Sarawak Report was an unmitigated political disaster for the Prime Minister, as the move has made the PM look like having too much to hide,” she said in a statement today.

Housing, Local Government and Urban Well-being Minister Datuk Rahman Dahlan and Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai’s ill-judged position to defend the censorship of Sarawak Report via internet block is rubbish as the reason given by both is also rubbish.

Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan defended the move to block Sarawak Report by saying that the Government wants to make it known that it will no longer tolerate lies and endless speculation on the website.

Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai also defended the move with, “The media has the freedom to report the truth, but absolutely does not have the freedom to fabricate news.”

The Edge Media Group publisher and group CEO Ho Kay Tat says it was a duty to pursue the truth after uncovering documents relating to 1MDB. – The Malaysian Insider filepic, July 21, 2015.

The Edge had reported extensively on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) in 2013 and 2014 as it emerged that the government-owned entity had run into financial difficulties.

Information was, however, scarce and limited because its annual audited financial reports were consistently late.

Our journalists have met various contacts and pored through whatever available information they could get hold of in search of the truth.

Early this year, we were told someone was willing to share information that will shed light on 1MDB’s joint venture with PetroSaudi International. We were not told who he was before we met him. This person, whom we shall not name, showed us thousands and thousands of emails and document attachments.
