Scotland Yard, Interpol, ICAC Boleh ...

30 Nov: Art responds to Bru: Justice is an Illusion


Original Article 27 Nov:
Why MACC tak boleh? There must be a good reason why Scotland Yard, Hong Kong's ICAC and Interpol still stick to the practice of questioning withnesses after hours, right? If indeed they still do and according The Malay Mail this afternoon, that is the case.

The paper also says the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission is going to use this to appeal last week's controversial High Court ruling that the commission could only question witnesses during office hours.

Read the report by The Paper That Cares h e r e.

On 19/11, the Attorney-General said he would appeal the ruling. The Cabinet is also expected to discuss the ruling, which has already inspired DAP stalwart Karpal Singh to also demand that police stop "interrogating" witnesses after office hours. The Inspector-General of Police has said the High Court ruling did not affect the police but Karpal thinks it did [Karpal wants IGP to stop after-hours interrogation, The Star 20 Nov].

Well, I agree with blogger Syed Akbar Ali that in this case, the Court has acted really weird.

Excerpts [lclick here to read his entire posting]:
Now the Court has again ruled that the MACC cannot question or interrogate suspects outside of office hours. This is a stupid decision. So lets play with the permutations. Is it Government office hours or the suspects' office hours? A suspect could be a shift worker somewhere and work from midnite to 8 am. That is the time the MACC sleeps. To interrogate such a person during the MACC’s office hours (9am – 5pm?) may violate the suspect’s sleep time. What if the MACC decides to operate 24 hours like the 7-11 or mamak nasi kandar outlets? And they get their new ‘Dibuka 24 Jam’ office hours gazetted too? Or does the Court’s decision make it impossible for the MACC (and by extension the whole security apparatus of the country) to set its own time to do things?

Rocky I dare say from the Cabinet, to the Judiciary and the Senate and everything else in this country have been compromised with the permeation of opposition-held values (read secretly pro-Opposition).
My feeling is the reason being of every government machinery in the country is to topple the ruling government in a round about way or the jalan belakang way!
Or either that the government has not got that strong resolve to just face their detractors face on like to throw Karpal Singh in a dust bin in Kamunting! The government should not give in to terrorists like the Bar Council and or to a group that actually believe that the government can be brought down by just threats from disgruntled groups such as the Hindraf! Come on Government show your balls or you risk losing those who support you when they start to lose their will to support you! Yes you the government! You, you I am talking to you damn it!
Can you imagine Scotland Yard giving in to wacko opposition members!

You love to twist and turn always...dont you?

If only the MACC plays its role properly, without being subservient to the Federal government's dictates...there will be no concerns on this matter.

You chose to harp on this aspect only.

Why not then go through the records of these foreign institutions and check if anyone has died in the course of interrogations...

Kalau ada, then use that also to justify TBH's death and say that if a person can die when being questioned by a foreign anti-corruption institution, then why not TBH?

And then also check if Scotland Yard delays in the prosecution of suspects, like the two frogs in Perak who were nabbed last year but were let loose till Perak state government changed hands this year.

And look at the way the MACC witness and agents are answering in the courts...don't you see a scheme to now let the two guys go free and then they formally join BN?

Or you want to plead that you are so naive that you cannot see such schemes?

Huh..so much from the "Paper that cares"

Yes, I agree that the govt must act tough. Remember you owe it all to us your voters who voted you in. How can you bow down to the opposition parties? Just pack in Karpal again just to show an example. All the opposition will shut up. If the govt act soft, you'll lose in PR13 mark my words!
TBH's death is not MACC's doing. Any stupid fool can see that MACC does not gain in doing so. In fact it has lost a star witness. Who gains from his death? Of course he who did all the wrongs that he blabbed about. Any fool can see that. I'm surprised why is the MACC so slow in taking action on all the culprits?

Screw MACC said...

The problem with MACC is that witnesses it interviews outside office hours seem to have a tendency to "plummet" from windows and govt pathologists seem to like to classify the whole incident as "suicide". Typical Malaysian scenarios that doesn't seem to happen at ICAC and Scotland Yard.
Interviews inside MACC offices whether during office hours or not have to be under CCTV all the time and the cameras must be working!
And what is wrong with having lawyers present? After all, they are witnesses and not suspects. Why MACC takut lawyers ah?
Malaysia is a country run by people with third world mentalities who are trying to emulate people in first world country with first world mentalities. But our local bodohs fail to achieve or even come close to the people of these first world country. why bother to try. Just admit we are blady idiots and that is why everything is SO FUCKED UP in this country!

Jim Woo said...

You must be joking, to draw parallels between the MACC, Scotland Yard and Hong Kong's ICAC. God knows there's no comparison. The rakyat know too.

Sometimes you make me laugh with posts like this. More often, though, people like you make my heart bleed for my country.

Can we either follow everything the foreigner do or don't follow anything. Everyone is taking sides to every single issue in this country.

Why can't we discuss objectively leaving the political preference. If TBH did not die, these developements wouldn't have happened.
How many times the MACC has prosecuted the clear-cut cases. Did you read the Sun paper on 26.11.2009 (Thursday)

What has happened to PKFZ?

Do you think if it has happened in Britain or Hong Kong, Scotland Yard or the ICAC would silent as MACC.

Why aren't the Selangor Exco's have not been brought to court if they have misused their funds.
In bothe cases it is the public's money is involved.

What are we telling the young Malaysians. It is ok to be corrupt at one side of the government and not on the other side.

I wonder!

Then bro, you also wont mind PDRM adhere to the same SOPs some of these overseas enforcement agencies practise too, right? Police officers must carry recorders and turn them on when making arrests. Video camcorders acting like black boxes attached to police vehicles. Miranda rights for suspects. So bro, are you ready to endorse these and tell our IGP to 'boleh' as well? If the shoe fits, right?

looks like it is easier to bring down a country by getting all those, whom hold hammers while giving sentences, in line.

authorities can only work during office hours! i don't think weird is the right word to describe this ruling, hidden agenda may be more accurate.

bad guys can have 12 hours cleaning up evidences! or having brain storming sessions with their lawyers on how to cheat out of their criminal activities! or best, can even sneak out of the country to avoid capture!

pity on criminals means cruel on their victims.

This is Bolehlad, what!

MACC, the Police, Immigration, Customs, hospitals, entertainment outlets, and even airports ought to abide by this ruling. Thieves, too. At 5.30 pm sharp: lights out and tools and shutters down.

After all, what is, for example, several thousand backlog cases yet to be disposed off by an institution?

I have worked in the government office for
over 20 years and I fully agree with the
court decision that the questioning must be
done within office hours.

Officers who worked extra hours may appear to
be hard working but the government only asked
one to work 40 hour week. With proper discipline
one should be able to finish his quota of work
within this 40 hour. Of course occasionally
one may need to do a bit of overtime when the
need arises. If one properly analysed the operations
of the immigration department I believe it is one of the
best run department in the civil service. Now the
office doors are opened as early as 7.00amand closed
by 5pm. Officers
can come as early as 7 00 am and do all the ground work and ask
suspects to a meeting at 9.00 and even if questioning
can take 7 hours it would still be completed according
to the
Any reasonably dedicated officers should be able to work
within the time frame.

Do not assume that if an officer works all through the
night he can be at his desk next morning producing
high quality work. Macc officers should support this
system because it is good for the family and the
organisation. Remember a happy well rested worker
is a good worker . Strictly with the punch system
properly run, the macc could be better run. All the
working in the night thing is hard to monitor and
allows officers to ponteng a lot -galavanting elsewhere in the daytime.

Sometimes, an opponent's misplaced charisma and delusions of personal grandeur would prompt other people to just accept his arguments wholesale without them attaching any suspicions of incompetency. I am not sure whether it was Rene Descartes or Voltaire who, when arguing with an atheist and asked to give reasons for his belief in God, proceeded to say, "Sir, x^2 + y^2 = n^2, therefore God exists" and left his opponent dumbfounded and unable to reply back. In this case the eminent scientist was using non sequitur to strengthen his point, but in actuality it was his opponent's deficiency in Mathematics that caused him to be speechless.

I think this is the case here with the judge in question. Kene sergah sikit with celebrity lawyer like Karpal Singh, sudah menggelabah and start agreeing, without doing his homeworks before hand. Well Judge, I hope you are reading this article by Rocky Bru. And I really hope you turn back your decisions. Not only is the ruling ridiculous, there have also been precedents. And next time remember this: never get swayed by any wheel chairing, loud-mouthing, "Let me go, I want to go to Parliament, I want to go to Parliament" turbanless Singh lawyers.

Shame on you, judge.

Dear Rocky,

As you know Malaysia is "Special".
We are the only country that practice vernacular school system.
So interrogating only during office hours will be our next added "Specialty".
I also understand that this will be extended to the Police Force working only during office hours. This is to ensure no overzealous criminal beating policemen will succumb to apprehend criminals after office hours when criminals are not supposed to be disturbed.

Hey Parameswara,

A spin is when a fact is twisted to misrepresent the truth. WHat is so untruthful about the fact that all questioning method in the world involves doing it outside office hours.

Bodoh betul. Kecik2 dulu apa pasal tak mati still born, besar menyusahkan orang dan masyarakat.

If this is the game DAP is playing, it should STOP complaining about corruption anymore. After all, there are as corrupted as the BN they accused. In fact their grassroots are linked with communist terrorists and gangsters.

This is just a ploy to save themselves from corruption charges. We know now that Wong Chuan How is being cahrged for corruption.

Questioning method is up to the MACC as long there is no harm done.

They way things are moving particlularly in the case of Awnar's sodomy trial, the judiciary is no more independent. It is now no more pro-justice but pro-opposition.

Very soon if some DAP politicians are held for a criminal case, they will demnd the same on the police.

Good then, crime prevention by police will work according to Government police hour. 4:15 sharp no more pick up of calls.

By then DAP should not complain of crime. After all, the criminal activites in South Johor are bankrolled by their Singapore gangsters in the land of their PAP cousing across the courseway.

Rocky,
no doubt that TBH died within SPRM premises but it does not confirm that they did it. Let's the investigation take their due course. In any investigation, surprise element and speeds is very important to achieve a breakthrough in their chances to conclude the case. If the investigator is restricted to confined to do their works within office hours then there is highest possibility that a criminal suspect to destroy or intimidate their evident.
YB Karpal is also a very famous lawyer but that does not means that all his clients is Really innosence and never commit the crimes. Some got away due to technical glitch. Most important things is that we always have to have a clear conscience in what we do. We might successfully defend a criminal who really committed a crime but as money is the drive then we forgot about conscience. A lawyer will never believe in justice until bad things happen to them or their loves one and then only they insist that the law enforcers work hard to nail the culprit.

It's time that we all support our law enforcers to carry out their duty. May justice prevail.

Logically as a citizen of Malaysia, looking at so many happening lately, I can only say Malaysia government is very corrupted because something that's so common sense can be twisted.

Look at Kota Seputih case, the Speaker actually have witnesses and evidence to indicate that the BN assemblyman was attending a function when he was supposed to be on MC;Furthermore, the date on the Medical Certificate is also wrong, yet how EC react? ...EC override Speaker's right...Common sense...anyone who use brain to think also can sense EC's intention..

What we are witnessing now, is a perception created from anti-BN elements in this country which try to implicate MACC and other state institutions in the country. There's no proof of you accusation. For all we know, it was DAP gangster who kill TBH. Until there is any evidence about MACC involvement in the case, everyone should not make any conclusion. But DAP and people like have going around the globe tarnishing MACC.

Hello everyone, care to read the Centre for Independent Journalism's (CIJ) clarification as reported by Bernama?

"Its executive director V. Gayathry said the association disagreed with the decision by the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat to bar an Utusan Malaysia reporter from covering its press conference.

“CIJ believes that media professionals, regardless of the owners’ political affiliations, should be allowed to cover all public functions organised by the state,” she said in a statement here.

On Wednesday, Utusan Malaysia reporter Abdul Yazid Alias claimed that he was asked to leave a press conference organised by the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat Elected Representa-tives Officers Association (Selproa) secretary Ng Yap Hwa.

Gayathry said CIJ would also like to stress that while media should be allowed full access to cover public events and issues of public interest, they (media) should, on their part, give fair coverage.

“The continued hostility between Pakatan Rakyat and certain Barisan Nasional-linked or controlled newspapers about alleged unfair and inaccurate representations have resulted in the media being denied access from Pakatan Rakyat events.

“As the primary constituent of the two are public, the hostility affects the public’s right to know,” she said.

Gayathry said CIJ reiterated that any restrictions on media organisations to cover public events was unacceptable.

“On the other hand, public interests can only be served if the media is allowed to do its job in accordance to the principles of fairness and objectivity.

“CIJ aspires for a society that is democratic, just and free, where all people will enjoy free media and the freedom to express, seek and impart information,” added Gayathry. "

I wonder why Rocky did not give this update to his original blog?

Maybe, because Gayathry stressed also " while media should be allowed full access to cover public events and issues of public interest, they (media) should, on their part, give fair coverage".

But 'fair coverage' is a very alien term to the MSMs?

Because they are 'conditioned' to accepting 'instructions' from the BN aligned bosses who tell them how to say and what to say as long as it serves their interest to topple Pakatan state governments of late?

No surprise if Rocky stays mum on this aspect/request by Gayathry.

Actually we can't blame the judge because they basically follow what is written in the text law. Sometime they might give out some "stupiak" judgement because they have to follow text of law. The problem then is the text of law, if the text of law written there 8 to 5, then the judge have to say its 8 to 5 even though its stupid. The next course then is for the law makers (Wakil Rakyat) to make amendment to text of law, in this situation, just propose the parliament to change what ever necessary. Still, its rather stupid judgement, but what to do? that what was written and nobody have ever thought about it.

The Kapal karam Sigh can say things like that because he is not in the shoes of the police or MACC, if he is in their shoes, he will also scream "stupiak" decision, the same goes to DAP supporters here.

Sdr Rocky's Bru,

1. The Court decision is subject to appeal;

2. Off working hour interviews (not amounting to torture) must be allowed;

3. I had some expeience with the old ACA;

4. I was interviewed in connection with a statutory declaration by an ex-banker that implicated Anwar Ibrahim;

3. At my request or with my consent, some interviews were held late in the evening when I was off duty;

4. I don't think it's a good idea to regulate how enforcement agencies should carry out their duties beyond what is written in their Act;

5. Element of surprise is needed when dealing with known criminals, suspects and witnesses;

6. In the ACA case, I was a witness.

Thank you.

The Unspinners said...

This is all a DAP ploy to coverup their corrupt, criminal and subversive activities.

They emulated Anwar Ibrahim's perception game to steer the public attention away from news of their association with unsavory activities such as gangsters, communists terrorists, gangland murder of Teoh Beng Hock, siphoning public donation, and a drug bust at Penang Airport.

This judgement proves the court is fearful the opposition and have not been dispensing ruling for justice without fear or favour.

The has no business to interfere in the modus operandi of MACC. Their role should have been focus to safeguard the rights of witness and suspects, and to ensure no false confessions are made.

A few years ago I was personally involved in apprehending a con man. I wanted to do the set up of the guy in the morning or afternoon. the Commercial Crime guys in KL preferred to do it in the evening. As they were telling me, "so that they can hold him over for the night"! That would apparently normally nicely shake up this white collar criminal.

Anyway, the next morning the victim of the crime, not me but someone I know, was called in to talk with the criminal's mother who offered to repay him the money conned. The victim got back the money. Nothing else was heard. Presumably the con man was let out. If he had been charged the victim, and maybe I too might have had to go to testify at his criminal trial. That did not happen.

Anyway, in this case we are talking of a "suspect"! Not a victim!!

1. As a citizen of this country, I am certainly fed up with the kind of negative attitude of some double-standard hypocrites amongst us Malaysians.

2. Judging from the comments to this article, I come to the following conclusion and convictions :

2.1 every issue has to be politiced. Quite correctly as has been pointed out, it has to be UMNO/BN versus Opposition - from simple thefts to rape , murder, police shoot-outs with villains etc. Somehow I get this feeling that UMNO, not the other components of the coalition, is getting the brunt of this unfair attack.

2.2 this consistent attack on the government agencies esp by some political parties and NGOs are purposely done to undermine the integrity of the said agencies. Granted that there is no perfection, but the constant barrage of misguided comments smacks of other ulterior motives ; something that ordinary loyal and patriotic Malaysian should be wary of.

2.3 if one cares to research one will see the double-standard perpetrated by politicians who are themselves quite dubious in character and suspicious in intent. It is as if 'these politicians' are purposely out to destroy the very fabric of political stability and harmony amongst the citizenry. If I may go a bit far, it looks as if there is a hidden agenda to specially fulfill the wishes of 'other agents' in and outside the country. (Again, research and keener eyes are needed to ascertain the truth )

2.4 Looking at the big picture and putting two and two together, one can clearly see the motives of 'these agents', these two-timing non-patriotic gangster-influenced politicians ; politicians who have no qualms about destroying the country , who have no love for this country, who would sell their souls just to feel that satisfaction of seeing destruction and calamity !

2.5 If we care to recognise and ask ourselves why are certain agencies targetted by these so-called agents ? Is it just to undermine their credibilty. If so, for what purpose ?
I would urge esp the Police and the other Security agencies to work, if need be 24 hours unceasingly, to flush out these traitors and collaborators !!! Expose their game and take actions.They could be in our midst ; politicians, ;law-makers, government servants, public officials,NGOs, educationists even ordinary citizens

2.6 The public, apart from demanding good governance,want action. The days of just coming out with warnings should have been done with. It is in this respect that a bigger majority would cry-foul if the govt decides to scrap away the ISA. We want the ISA to be fully enforced so as to contain the above-said dissidents, subversive elements and 'infiltrators'.

2.7 Yes, we appreciate that freedom of the Press, Freedom of expression, Human Rights etc, etc - all in the name of Democracy and Human Rights. But when people go out of their way to spread gossips, untruths and false accusations, demonising your own country ; then JUST TAKE ACTION , be they from the politicians, legal fraternity, .govt servants,NGOs, media, even bloggers.

2.8 Look at our neighbour. Though regimented in character, it has helped to maintain law and order; the majority accepts that. Strangely, 'the complainants' here in Malaysia accept that too ; but would swiftly admonish our govt for the same 'injustice' that they have heaped praises and accolades in another country ! This is the double-standard and hypocrisy we are talking about. With citizens like this, who need traitors ! Again we say, only people who love Malaysia as it is, respect the Constitution, the Rukun Negara , are loyal and patriotic - deserves to be citizens of this country. Otherwise migrate !!! Period !!!

Bro, I think justice and common sense was the loser in the judicial review which declared it unlawful for the MACC to question witnesses after office hours. I hope the YA Judge will quickly come out with the written judgement on his decision so that the AG can appeal his "weird" decision which have made the MACC the only investigating authority in this planet which cannot interrogate witnesses after office hours, to the Higher courts.

Before any body talk about the late the TBH, granted he died after MACC questioning of him as witness but his death is still a subject of an ongoing inquest so no need to shout accusations as such. By the way TBH is not the first nor will he be the last person who will die in custody or as witness whether during office hours or after office hours around the globe. The UK,Australia,China, USA and France etc also have their fair share of deaths in custody of their law enforcement agency OK.

And with Karpal Singh saying that the ruling should include the police, the only people who are very happy with this after hours ruling will be the hard core and petty criminals including gangsters, murderers, robbers,rapist, drug pushers, kidnappers, pimps and prostitutes etc. not to mention the many lawyers who would be defending their clients with a greater range of defence material such as missing/absconded witnesses, missing evidences etc all presumably lost and carted away between 6.30pm to 6.30am. Waah, Bar Council which is keeping a very quite profile on this one, should be very pleased with Karpal Singh for making the jobs of letting go suspected criminals from the arms of the law that much easier in the name of Justice for All.

I say with the kind of mentality that lawyers cum opposition politicians like Karpal Singh have, soon, not just the Police but the Customs and Immigration will have to follow suit and as a result we will have to close down border check points, ports and airports between 6pm to 6am as people legally cannot be questioned simple questions such as "what is the purpose of your visit to Malaysia? or How long you intend to stay?" during those times.

I hope the Government put a stop to this irresponsible behaviour and take their glove off to deal with this issue as if left unchecked will only bring anarchy to this country as innocent citizens would not feel safe anymore,where people would not come to visit as tourists and no body would even want to invest their money here.

The safety and security of the rakyat is Paramount and should not be needlessly sacrificed just because Karpal Singh lawyer/DAP Chairman says so. If the Higher Courts are not able to rescind the High Court ruling then the Government and cabinet must make immediate steps to make amendment to the relevant Acts and have it passed in Parliament ASAP to make the relevant acts/law more clearly defined and in this case the times of interrogation of witnesses or suspect cannot be confined to office hours only.

Let Justice for the majority and common sense prevail.

Rocky,

MACC (Malaysia) tak boleh pakai la !!

macam mana hang boleh compare MACC sama 'Scotland Yard' dan 'ICAC HK' ?? tak tahu malu !!

Rockybru's sudah jatuh standard,pasal banyak cerita 'bodoh', begitu jugak dengan Malay Mail .....tunggu saje tutup kedai !!


Scotland Yard

skilgannon1066 said...

Pak Rocky

Why look at Scotland Yard (which is primarily the London Metropolitan Police Force) which has under it's jurisdiction stuff like anti-terrorism, organised crime and major homicide or Interpol?

Why not look across the Causeway at Singapore's Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) and their modus operandi? Surely that would be a better model for the MACC, right?

In any case, I think Karpal has got it way wrong on this issue. If criminals don't follow "office hours", why should the police be shackled in their operating hours?

It's all a question of professionalism, impartiality and the rule of law. And the existence of strong civil rights movements - like in the UK or Hong Kong - which means that investigatory bodies like Scotland Yard, MI5 or the Hong Kong ICAC cannot step out of line without being called to account.

skilgannon1066 said...

Since we are on the subject of the MACC, please comment on Malaysia's alleged next "RM10 million man", aka the MB of Negeri Sembilan.

Or why Bank Negara is investigating one Salamath Ali Money Changer for contravening Section 30 of the Money-Changing Act 1998?

I would love to see the Malay Mail do an investigative journalism piece on this.

skilgannon1066 said...

As a point of clarification, Scotland Yard (aka New Scotland Yard or the Met) is the HQ of the Metropolitan Police Force which is responsible for law enforcement within the Greater London area, excluding the City of London (which has it's own police force).

Check out the Met's website at www.met.police.uk

I have not been able to find any specific reference in the website as to whether the Met has a specific responsibility to investigate allegations of corruption in the public and private sectors in London. There are references in some other websites to something called a "Public Sector Fraud & Corruption Unit" in the Met, but I have not been able to find any specific reference to it in the Met's website.

As such, using the Met as an example may not be the most appropriate for the MACC.

What is of more interest is the Met's Mission
Statement (as contained in it's website):

Our mission - working together for a safer London.

Our values - working together with all our citizens, all our partners, all our colleagues
> we will have pride in delivering quality policing. There is no greater priority.
> we will build trust by listening and responding.
> we will respect and support each other and work as a team.
> we will learn from experience and find ways to be even better.

That sounds like a good Mission Statement for the Royal Malaysian Police to adopt, does it not?

Oh, yes - the UK has an Independent Police Complaints Commission. Thought I'd mention that too.

Rocky and all commentators,

A judge makes his decision based on facts and laws presented before him. Have you all esp Rocky and Syed Ali read the full judgement? If you haven't, then you should.
The gist of the decision is the MACC Act is vague and should be sent back to Parliament, taking into account the right to personal liberty of witnesses.

Bzz asked if this was the same JC who was supposed to hear Nizar's case. Yes, he is the very same. Despite being a former PAS advisor, he has been confirmed as
a judge after a yr of probation. The usual probationary period for JCs is 2 yrs. Refer also to the Chief Justice's interview published in the STAR yesterday. The backlog in RKKK where this judge is now serving has been reduced by 100%. I have been informed that this judge had performed very well, fulfilling his KPI by 100% and MORE.

By the way, he was also the 1st Securities Commission's Director of Market Supervision and Enforcement. Investigation was one of his duties, so I think the guy knows what he's talking about.

I agree with Nuraina. Some of the arguements here are truly pathetic.

TheBOLDanon,
The written judgement IS available. If I am not mistaken, it was ready for distribution on 23 Nov. You can contact the judge's office for a copy.

I have read it and had checked the cases fwd by Federal Counsel. IMHO, her argument was weak.

Air.kita,
The phrase under scrutiny was 'day to day'. Pray tell, what do you consult when you wish to find out the ordinary meaning of an English word or phrase if not a DICTIONARY?

Dato' A.Kadir,
The grapevine has it that the AG has assigned 2 officers to study the judgement. Btw, the AG was a former student of the judge.

Dear frens,

I'm in the view MACC can also interogate within their working time but I don't agree strictly to 8:00am to 5:30pm criteria as well. There must be certain act to protect the witness or suspect where any interogation must be videotape as form of protection against MACC abuse. And the witness must sign consent to the time they are interogated. Eg. if the witness is call to be question from 6:30pm ~ 8:30pm. He/she must sign a form consenting to this time interview and MACC must have a tape of this interview. Also no interview on "witness" can be more then certain stipulated time like 3 hours maximum. For suspect, there can be another act to permit a longer interview.

MACC need to clean up their image and must seen to be professional and not only ball carrying BN party only.

I, too, agree with Nuraina. So many pathetic arguments they put out in your blog, Rocky.

Many are along the DAP line - endless accusation and insinuation of MACC being responsible for TBH's death. Even before disclosure of the 2nd autopsy results. This time observed by a British pathology expert.

These DAP supporters, sympathisers and perhaps even card-carrying members would surely support the Court decision to limit MACC interrogation to only office hours. That decision cannot be right. It probably was based on what was presented before the JC - they all have to decide only on the evidence before them. If the practices of Scotland Yard and other relevant organisations world-wide were not quoted and evidence on them adduced, then the Prosecution was not doing their job well.

But then the story is not ended yet. Until the highest court of the land. It must be pursued to the end. We cannot let corrupt blokes have time to destroy evidence simply because of interrogation postponement due to hours limitation.

Once interrogated, the blokes know MACC is on their trail. Until the necessary evidence (like the four invoices in TBH's laptop) or admission of wrong doing has been obtained, they must be allowed to continue the interrogation.

Remember that TBH was so concerned about his laptop, wanting it be carried to MACC office in his presence. If TBH was allowed to continue the investigation and keep the computer to himself until the next day, any stupid fool would know what he would have done to the record of the invoices.

The MACC officers have been willing to sacrifice their regular sleep and normal family life and convenience, and they must be given sufficient tools to nab the culprits. Continuous interrogation is one of the tools. So long as it is not torture.

What constitutes torture? Go by international standards. Remember that in the West they even talk of the American Guantanamo fellows using "water-boarding", which, of course they deny.

Read all about it.

I seldom comment on here. But Rocky be prepared to be shamed for having written this post.

Rocky's Bru said...

Thanks Marina for the alert on Art Harun's posting. I'm always prepared to be shamed for making a posting (heck, I'm prepared to be be sued for any posting I've done and I have, too!) but I see Art Harun's posting as one that has provided us an insight into the Judge's character and credentials (which I'm not able to do because I don't know the Judge personally; Art, on the other hand, knows the guy very well).

When one of my commenters left a comment about the Judge's person which Art knew to be untrue, he sms-ed to let me know that it was not true. I expected him to do this posting to clear the air, and I am glad he did.

It's good for blogging.

Thank you.

eddy said...

Regardless of Art's comment or Marina's, you have nothing to be ashamed of Bro, you write what you think based on the subject matter and public interest, therefore the comments you invite will be pro,against or meaningless depending on which side of the political divide one is on.

I think that is what positive and healthy blogging is all about...raising awareness about a subject that its author is concerned about.

If the court decision is made on the personal interpretation of "day to day",then it is certainly open to challenge.

Since a day consists of 24 hours,I agree that it is weird to interpret 'day to day' as pertaining to daytime only.

Best to consult a cunning linguist.

I've read art harun's article too. In no way you can say he shamed you rocky. What's wrong with marina with her condescending tone and posting?

Not read the judgement but if what art says that the case depends on "day to day" interpretation it's sad. Cannot imagine legislature intended this? Don't understand why the judge cannot employ basic canon of statutory interpretation learnt in law school. His interpretation in all legal sense leads to absurdity. Really weird.

To the arguments above, you cannot argue in court that because of tbh pending inquisition, MACC therefore cannot interrogate at night. Ask any of ur lawyer. Reason is it's not related n unproven. Simple. Tbh case is not t existing law.

To those who condemned for a fair media I applaud you. But if you wish so, you must rightly condemned t pro-opposition media for not being fair as well. Numerous times Malaysian insider did not print my comments condemning MI for being unfair. At least rocky does not discriminate.

Why gangster choose MACC building where there's guard, camera and police guarded that area from time to time..a government buidling...

From what we see, we can think with our brain, we see MACC integorate and torture him but off-hand accidentally throw him out of the window..this may be MORE reasonable....and frankly, if i am a gangster, I aint that stupid to walk into te a building and kill someone under the supervision of MACC for god sake! I must be very 'Big' head in the gangster world to do that...that stupid?

if one hears that our country is called a pariah state-
surely one feels hurt. That is why institutions in
this country must always uphold the minimum standard
of human decorum when dealing with suspects, witnesses
or prisoners. So far there has not been any adverse
report in our handling of prisoners in prison except
some for some political bullying raised by a couple of bloggers.


As far as handling of witnesses, we had one terrible tragedy
which take place in the premise of the macc- which is not
part of the police organisation. I would consider the
handling of witnesses poor and the overall management of
the security very very poor. How does the management explained
the event that took place the night that tbh was dumped from the
macc office floor either because of his[ tbh s own volition =suicide ]
or he was pushed out of the window by person[s] unknown.
In both scenarios things look bad for macc and the bn gomen when innuendos
about the complicity of macc officers [exaggerated to be bn s work ]
during the future pru 13 campaign.


If macc still want to behave like a police organisation with 24 hour questioning ,
then the organisation must be put under the local
police control and its premise within a police compound. Then the security
will be good and there cannot be the possiblity of persons unknown terminating
the life of a witness just like in the tbh s case

Dear S.Seagal, on the subject of your hero Guan Eng pictures, you seemed to have missed the stepping ceremony of the pictures of the 3 ADUNS(YB Hee,YB Jamaludin and YB Osman) laid on the floor during the 15th DAP Perak State level convention just two days ago.

Lim Kit Siang, Lim Guan Eng , Nga and Ngeh were photographed for posterity stepping on the pictures of the 3 Aduns, which is rude, arrogant and very immature for TOP leaders of the DAP to display such uncivilised behaviour don't you think? Don't agree, different double standard applied ka, DAP can, others cannot? Never mind, it makes for terrific photo banner for Barisan in the next election with all kinds of juicy captions.

after reading this Malay Mail article, one question comes to mind:

why, oh, why, must there be so many idiots in this world?

the thing is, since the JC based his judgment using the Oxford Dictionary, then, use that as one of the grounds for appeal!

duh!

contest the word day.

duh!

the first definition of DAY is given as... a period of 24 hours.(Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary)

so, why did the good judge choose to ignore this, but, instead opted for the other definitions of the word "DAY?"

anylaluan, the above should also refute that Arty Farty's fairy-tale about his honest and impartial judge.

Bro,

To qualify my following statement, I'm no pro opposition, neither am I pro gomen.

Now, in other countries, it is accepted that you are allowed to interrogate/question suspects/witnesses after hours. However, this is qualified by an expressed NECESSITY under extraneous circumstances (for example,there is a risk of valuable evidence being disposed off if they were released after hours). The margin of appreciation of NECESSITY is not one that is subjective. It's quite common sensical really.

It scares me how uninformed you are about this matter as a reporter. Next time before you link to other unreliable sources, make sure you qualify it by distancing yourself from such ignorant blogging.
