Official Secrets Act 2009

"I wish to remind all civil servants that they are under Official Secrets Act (OSA) oath and they should know that they must not leak ...". - Lim Guan Eng, Penang Chief Minister

Alive and kicking in Penang.
Once upon a time before March 2008, we were hoping that all these "draconian" Acts will be history once we have effected change in/of government. The O.S.A. is one of these Acts, tailored, I believe, to make life more difficult for journalists in the country. A proverbial sword over our head, if you like. [More about OSA? Click here]

We can still hope for freedom of information, of course, but I' must remind Guan Eng that he isn't supposed to be supporting the O.S.A. just because he is now the Government.

I am not against the OSA per se.

While negotiating contracts and Govt tenders there has to be a level of secrecy to prevent insider dealings, profiteering and outright frauds.

But contracts which involve general public interest and welfare such as Toll Highways, IPP's and Water Privatisation should not be classified under the OSA to prevent us from knowing the details until it is too late for us to object!

If Federal & State Govt's follow the general principle of open tender and publicising of bids for 'large' contracts, as opposed to the directly negotiated contract which has become the rule rather than the exception, then we should not have a problem with the OSA.

Hey boss, before you wanna fix LGE like the way you fix Pak Lah, can you please ask your BOSS Najib to hand off Perak first ar ??

Today,LGE says PR wants to give power back to Perak people and let them choose their government,but 'Zamry Ghandi' wants to keep powers for himself and UMNO only !!! so'how ar ??


Can fix this 'Zamry Mandela' first before Guan Eng ar ? Also, newer see you write about 'Pangkor Pele' after he got the appeal stay ??

Com'on lah rocky.. fairlah sikit, takkan Kepala hang hanya tahu tembak ke arah PR saje ??? takkan pusing kanan atau kiri sedikit pun tak boleh !!

Mr.Rocky,

another of your spin. Care to enlighten your readers where and which sentence that says he support the OSA? Its your twists and spins that say so.
I believe all civil servants whom the majority are attached to the Federal government are bound by the OSA oath and has no bearing on LGE who only remind them of their oath.

Mr.Rocky, I think you can do better than this low blow in your spins.

eddy said...

Why am I totally not surprised Bro, for one I always knew that Guan Eng like his father Kit Siang are always cakap tak serupa bikin politicians. This guy champions transparency and accountability blah, blah "kononnya lah" but bans the NST from his press conference because tsk,ysk the NST was critical of him and his administration.

Now that he is in power he will use all the Acts that will favour him and his party that they used to abhor when they are in the opposition. I would not be surprised if Guan Eng will use the ISA if he could have access to it also.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely is it not YAB Ketua Menteri Guan Eng?

BN must find more effective way to articulate all these belit-belit by Anwar Ibrahim, LKS, LGE dan lain lain, to all the innocent rakyat who demand a better place in Malaysia.

Sure BN/UMNO have fair share of shortcomings, but PKR and DAP are not saints!!!! The problem now with the Rakyat is any lie, fiction, belit-belit from Anwar, Lim Kit Siang, LGE, Ngeh and Nga are taken wholesale as gospel truth!!!

The situation is worsened with the continous spin by Malaysiakini and MalaysiaInsider!!!!

I would BN media strategy definitely need to improve to counter the lies by Anwar, LKS, LGE dll!!!!

Look at how these idiots put words in Zambry on the Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. Why cant the rakyat read Zambry's blog to find out the truth.!!!! I am amazed by the childish politics by PR!!!!

These rebels only want to grab power by critisism and law twisting tactics. They can bend the rules one full circle just to achieve power.

Once in power, they become complacent and that's where the trouble begins.

All the promises they made prior to their ride on the high horses, will be conveniently and systematically forgotten, because they know that the masses forget easily.

Let's face it. The opposition only pretends to fight for freedom by asking for the abolition of laws that land them in jail.

But when they come to power, they will use the same draconian laws or worse to lock up those who criticise them, using silly excuses such as 'safeguarding national interest' etc etc.

Yup, politicians come from the same mould, speak the same language and can talk a bird down from the tree.

YB Lim Guan Eng is no different.

A GOOD MAN DOES NOTHING.

the art of spinning by Phakatan Riot said...

Do you notice PKR/DAP key political's strategy?

They try to "market" themselves by championing populist issue, conduct street demo and protest with ultimate intention to be detained or arrested and sent to jail and Kamunting. In jail they will provoke and hope to get some blue or black eyes. This sure get the symphathy from Rakyat and international media attention!!! And the best part is the media attention is FREE of charge!!!!!

Then after investing fews days/months/years in jail/Kamunting, they will stand for election, sure win one!!!

Fine examples:

Anwar Ibrahim
Lim Guan Eng
Lim Kit Siang
Manoharan

Their bloggers also do the same to get attention and glamour, they will spread lies, create fiction, made provocative postings.

Fine examples:

RPK. RPK's side kick, zorro went to the extent to be rounded up in Ipoh and true enough he gained that self gratifiaction and he celebrated it!!!!

The PR strategy, never underestimate them. The beauty is, the Rakyat buys it!!!!!

Bro;

This nation suffers from an oversimplication of political issues: What's so dreadfully wrong about this place? Answer: Umno clowns are corrupt. How does Umno perpetuate its stranglehold on us, the poor hapless rakyat? Patronage, constructing false feel-good sensations, refusing to repeal draconian laws. Is Umno racialist in its thinking and actions? Yes, most definitely. Why is Ketuanan Rakyat such an enlightened plank? Because Anwar Ibrahim will return power to the rakyat. Are Pakatan leaders not liable to "seeking funds" so that they dont need to work and concentrate fully on politics? They are supported by conscentious members, for a cause.

Adoi, unless the above school boy sort-of political thinking is smashed, this place is not going to progress or have a proper discourse. Our democracy shall be forever flawed because real issues shall be overwhelmed by one-line thinking. Anwar and Kit Siang must be made to think and try harder before they get to run this place: If most pundits are to be believed Pakatan shall start PRU13 as the raging favourites.

A way forward is to allow politicians from both sides of the schism to start anew vis-a-vis their political arguments. We need this badly because so many of the highly ediucated souls are turning out to be terribly gullible; rather than think through their own set of political thinking they surrender this sacred rights to Anwar and Kit Siang. I think events have demonstrated that both sides must be made to answer for their mental-struggle frailties. May be start by defining and deepening our own understanding of Bangsa Malaysia. Grant the ones with the best ideas, descriptions and plan of action to have Bangsa Msia big points.

Then, move on to the PPSMI, domestic investment, new sources of growth, new highways, fast trains, a new housing policy that provides for bigger built-up area...

This nation needs clarity in the directions we are the take, the substance and tone of our debate, the kind of politicians we shall have, the media we need..

bro rocky, you sounds so amateur. someone without experience in life at all. certain things are meant to be confidential. why not u tell me your account number and pin number. certain things have to be confidential to prevent any beneficial advantage to people with business interest. LGE did mention that the government has nothing to hide, but it's important to keep certain information confidential to prevent any advantages being taken by people with business interest. i suggest you stop blogging because ur a shame to the journalism world.

How is this act even come close to the draconian ISA act?

What is wrong with the secret acts if it is to prevent information relating to Tenders etc from getting to the public before it is suppose to.

In order to be fair, secrets acts should be implemented at certain circumstances.

Nothing wrong with that.

Some government implement secrets act for the public but disclose it to the cronies. That is when it is wrong.

DAP actually now thinks they are on the verge of taking over this country.

They think that they have the (almost) full support of Malaysians, more so the Malays. They are using the Malays of PAS, PKR, and the Indians of Hindraf and PKR to get them the trust of rakyat that they can never offer in a million years.

In short turning this country into another Singapore. They think they are on the brink of achieving this because they think they have the majority support now.

To hell with Anwar's PKR. Lim Guan Eng can screw him anytime he wants (the penanti fiasco) and they'll be ppl to support him.

They think they have the upper hand. Now feeling all mighty, he even forgets that he was against the OSA!.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg, they'll be more things that they'll consider 'Boleh' just because they are now in control. Even re-branding the ISA maybe?

DAP actually runs the show and Lim Kit Siang is feeling so close to taking over Malaysia that he can't lose, not by anything or anybody, even DS Anwar Ibrahim.

They have never been a Pakatan Rakyat, they were never registered. And their candidates never stand for the so called PR coalition come voting time. They stand for their own party, PAS for PAS, PKR for PKR, DAP for DAP. Unlike BN always under the BN ticket, and they are registered. Now that is a true coalition with real ideals.

Tapi, ada jugak yang nak komen supporting and justifying LGE's reminder on the OSA! But, that's PR. Everything that other people does is never right whereas anything that they themselves do is never wrong. Mark my words...today, they are all against the ISA but one day if ever they come into power, they will still be using the ISA like the current Administration. Cakap tak serupa bikin.

Jangan nak menipu.

Semua negara di dunia ada sejenis Official Secrets Act yang tersendiri.

Ini kerana minit-minit mesyarat tu mestilah rahsia. Lim Guan Eng mintak minit-minit mesyuarat kerajaan Penang harus dirahsiakan untuk keselamatan negeri. Itu standard prosedur di mana-mana. Kalau tak pihak lain boleh gunakan maklumat itu untuk menggugat negara.

Kau dah hilang waras, Rocky?

Okeylah Rocky. Kalau betul kau tak sokong OSA, kau setuju tak minit-minit meeting Menteri Kabinet didedahkan? Apa Najib cakap dalam meeting dgn menteri-menteri dia? Bersedia tak nak dedahkan?

Jangan kau cakap satu tapi cakap benda lain kemudian.

Jangan hipokrit Rocky.

Kau ni aku tau, tak puas hati dgn DAP, sengaja nak serang DAP, nak tutup cover malu pasal kejadian May 7 di Perak.

Yang Pakatan Rakyat dengan DAP cakap pasal OSA tu diorang sebut jangan salahgunakan OSA. Jangan guna sewenang-wenangnya macam UMNO nak tutup cerita pasal konsesi tol jalanraya yang diorang buat utk memiskinkan rakyat.

DAP cakap jangan guna OSA nak haramkan penyiaran televisyen kejadiaan May 7 di mana Tuan Speaker diheret keluar oleh Polis UMNO.

Dear Rocky

You have done us a great favour. The comments on this blog clearly shows the mentality of the PR supporters.

Many are not interested in facts and evidence.

They just want to shove their "views" down everyone's throats.

I do hope the man-in-the-street can make his own conclusions based on these views.

The raw and aggressive style reminds you of the yesteryears, when the communists provoked the Malays in their own homeland.

May sane and cool heads prevail.

OSA depends on what secret you want to protect in the first place.I'm not sure what the fuss is about regarding the minute of the SEC meeting, BUT by right civil servant should follow the guidelines UNLESS something fishy is going on and hence they can act as a whistleblower.
But never the less, OSA is an important component of a government governing the state/country. And it is open to abuse by certain parties to protect their own interests. By the way Rocky you should be objective in your reporting, as far as i know the reason LGE is complaining could be an act of "sabotage" by certain parties in the state government and could indicate a bigger problem in governing Penang.

Know ye all that the greatest threat to the existence of Malays of Islamic origin in Malaysia comes from Malays of Islamic origin themselves although with differing political ideologies.The chinese and Indians etc are only bystanders and would only be required to do the dirty work once the carnage is over between the Malays.

There must be a code of conduct handbook that says that confidential information must not be leaked and if a person is found guilty, disciplinary action can be taken. This code of conduct is common to any organization. It is not right for LGE to single out the OSA to threaten the culprit, but some for of action must be taken on the person who deliberately leaked the info.

Umno tegar, biaq pi la depa nak tegaq. Geng atas pagaq terkena angin spin then jatuh gelanggang sebelah. Pasai tu majoriti bertambah. Nak buat pilihanraya pun jadik takut. gerenti kalah.

so, rocky, keep it rolling, keep it spinning!

Rocky,

Remember this ?

"I still say there's no place under the Malaysian sun for the ISA. No more. The ISA has been abused too many times before. The government has made too many mistakes with it in the past."

Period.

p/s: but this when Pak Lah in power la...isn't Rocky? hehe...

RockyPru said...

Or how about this judiciary...

http://rockybru.com.my/2008/06/our-fearful-judiciary.html

here's ANOTHER scandal... it shows how fearful the judiciary was of a former prime minister who bullied and used threats against these judges (I believe a certain prime minister who is one of your favourite politicians?).Thanks Marco Polo.
Sigh. What took the Judge so long? It was made 11 years after Dr Mahathir Mohamad (so fearful is this member of the judiciary of the former PM that he did not mention the name so I take the liberty to do so here) purportedly issued the veiled threat to him and his brother judges; 20 years after the sacking of Salleh Abas. And Nearly 5 years after Dr M resigned.

A really long time to live in fear, Yang Ariff.

Rocky,
You are right?

Assalamualaikum Abg Rocky,

Jangan putus asa berjuang. Takda salahnya berpindah tempat sebab baru sedar tersalah kapal. Sebab orang yg cerdik, akan belajar dari kesilapannya, bukan buat dono jek. Orang yang cerdik juga akan sentiasa terbuka menerima kritikan orang lain dan tidak malu memperbaiki diri. Allah suka akan hamba yang humble dan suka memperbaiki diri.

Moga kita berlapang dada dgn ujian Allah dan minta diteguhkan hati dalam perjuangan dan dlm menerima dugaan dari orang2 yang 'kurang cerdik'.

There is no mention of the nature of the leaked info. For example, if such info is regards a tender of a piece of info that can give pecuniary advantage to the holder of that information, say in a tender, then the OSA should be enforced. If not, the tender would be compromised.

Same goes for OSA in militarily sensitive info. But that is not the question in this case.

OSA that was used by BN usually involves cover up and protection for BN members in corruption cases eg. Ezam and Rafidah is a case in point.

Why cover and suppress that ACA report for so long?

I think information is not free. There must be rules on public servants having citizen information.

Its better to 'have' a whistle-blower act to protect information on illegal and unethical behaviors.

Is the Government listening to the whistlers!!

It is typical of scum like LGE to waffle about the OSA and other Acts. It is in keeping with the mentality of these people to appropriate whatever they ridiculed before once they have tasted power for its a strategy to perpetuate their grip.That is replete in Chingkiedom's tainted history. Here is why the OSA is being invoked:

1.To hide the shenanigans behind the tennis fiasco.Almost 7 months after the major bungle; no police reports have been made, no one has been hauled up,no one has been fired especially the leading state gov.players save a limp report to whitewash the government's actions and shield saucy Arianne (wink, wink, lGE).

2. 8 months after the double Pesta boo-boo, we have no action being taken against those behind the blunder despite press reports implying shady dealings involving certain outfits in tandem with certain individuals etc.

3. Nothing is ever mentioned about LGE's handling of the heritage fuck-up. Nothing about how the state government allowed certain hotel constructions to go ahead...

4. Not a whisper about the outcome of the much ballyhooed Korean golf club investment. A MOU was initialed almost 9 months ago and silence ever since...hahahahaha LOL

5. There has been nary a mention of the continued rape of the Batu Feringghi hills and the flagrant violations of EIA procedures..is it because the developer lobby under the helm of certain people dictating state government policy through their minions.In fact, a director of a developer was selected a MPPP councillor, so what gives? No one ever cares to explain or question the role of Tan Kok Ping, a prominent Penang businessman who timed his own ascension to the top of the PCCC about the same time as LGE's victory and Kok Ping's influence in dictating MPPP councilor selection.What about KP's association with the Penang Turf Club thingy and the PORR under Metroworks?

6. LGE likes to boast about his role in Penang drawing investments in 2008 claiming that it was primarily due to his efforts. apart from Ibeeden and the Golf MOU, honestly how much credit can he appropriate for himself and how much was due to the previous admin's efforts plus capital reinvestments deferred investments (MOUs signed in 2007?

7.Can LGE reveal the breakdown of total investments in the first quarter of '09 and provide the figures/outlays and the types of industries.MIDA figures show your abysmal performance especially after all that restructuring brouhaha, kah choon et al.,:

January-March 2009: 750 million (DAP)=31 projects
source:http://www.mida.gov.my/

compared to

4.7 billion (Gerakan)= 29projects
source:http://www.miti.gov.my/cms/documentstorage/com.tms.cms.document.Document_5bfbf1b2-c0a81573-5e075e07-518d7bc2/MITI%20BULLETIN%20(1Q08).pdf

How come Johore (BN) went from 999 million in 1stQ 2008 to 2.7B in 1stQ 2009 and Sarawak garnered almost 8 (1.7B) times the domestic investment than Penang (2.7) over the 2 periods.

Dont give the excuse of crisis, iskandar blahblahblah. Fact of the matter is you, LGE, has been busy politicking and racking them up brownie points at others expense with your asinine comments and jibes. and even more pathetic is your inane comment that you have wiped out poverty when the average annual declines [52.7(1970)- 0.3(2004)/34] of 1.5% would have accounted for that save the real hardcore which could be attributable to laziness, subsidy mentality , fatalism of these people.What magic did you pull off, wanker? Allocate scant financial resources to these parasites instead of teaching them how to fish!!

this is just for starters, LGE; i have got plenty more. Little wonder you need the OSA now to prop up your illusion of being an economics maven as well as burnish your "umar abdul aziz" image right, fraud?:

"We stand together for equal treatment. There should no double standard. We can't understand why a man can have four wives. Why should there be this type of double standard? I am not encouraging men to have four wives or woman to have four husbands but why should there be a double standard of this kind of perception? It is okay for men to have more, but not for women?"
