KUALA LUMPUR: Senior minister Mohamed Azmin Ali was not represented by any lawyer during case management today of a suit filed by 10 Gombak voters against their MP for alleged deceit and breach of fiduciary duty.

Lawyer Yohendra Nadarajan, who represented the voters during the case management held online, said deputy registrar Maslinda Selamat asked him to file an affidavit of service to show proof the legal papers had been served on Azmin.

Maslinda fixed another case management on Jan 14.

“I had expected a lawyer (for Azmin) to be present since the papers were served on Azmin on Dec 1,” Yohendra said.

Posted by: superadmin - 12-28-2020, 02:19 PM - Forum: Business. Economy and Investment - No Replies

[Image: port-klang-westport-fmt-300519-10.jpg]

PETALING JAYA: Despite the Covid-19 doom and gloom, there was good news for Malaysia as exports rose by 4.3% in November compared to the same month last year, registering a total value of RM84.4 billion, said chief statistician Mohd Uzir Mahidin.

It was third straight month for higher exports compared to the corresponding month last year. In September, exports rose to RM88.9 billion, a 13.6% increase compared to last year. In October, it stood at RM91.1bil, a 0.2% increase from last year and a 2.4% increase from the earlier month.

Uzir said the external trade statistics in November 2020, shows the growth in exports was driven by re-exports, widening by 18.1% or RM15.4 billion of total exports.

Meanwhile, domestic exports, valued at RM69.1 billion, grew by 1.7% as compared to November 2019, he added.

  A 7-year-old boy went back into a burning home to save his baby sister
Posted by: superadmin - 12-28-2020, 11:29 AM - Forum: Inspiring Stories - No Replies

(CNN)A 7-year-old boy named Eli saved his baby sister's life when he jumped into her room through a window to rescue her from a fire that destroyed his family's home.

It was a typical night at the Davidson household in New Tazewell, Tennessee, on December 8. Chris and Nicole Davidson fed their three children dinner, tucked them into bed and were asleep by 8:30 p.m.

Hours later, Nicole Davidson woke up to the smell of smoke. Within minutes, the family's home was up in flames -- and 22-month-old Erin Davidson was trapped in her room.

  It’s home, sweet home for car boot family, thanks to Ebit Lew
Posted by: superadmin - 12-27-2020, 05:39 PM - Forum: Inspiring Stories - No Replies

GEORGE TOWN: The family that lived in the boot of a car and survived on water from public toilets can now live in a proper house — thanks to celebrity preacher and philanthropist Ebit Lew.

Lew came to the rescue of the family of five which has been forced to sleep in their car for the past eight months after their home was razed in a fire in April. Their plight has tugged at the heartstrings of Malaysians here and abroad.

In a Facebook post today, Lew said he drove to Penang from Johor Bahru and got the family of security guard Ganesh Soundarajah a rented three-room home at an undisclosed location.

Not stopping there, Lew also bought the family new electrical appliances, such as a refrigerator, television and rice cooker, and other household items.

  Trump is destroying his own party on the way out the door
Posted by: superadmin - 12-26-2020, 01:11 PM - Forum: Politics - No Replies

(CNN)This holiday season, President Donald Trump has wreaked havoc on Congress, our democracy and our judicial system by pardoning political associates and convicted murderers. But Trump has saved a special kind of Grinch-like behavior for the two Republican Senate candidates in Georgia who are headed for runoff elections in January and for Senator Mitch McConnell, whose fate as majority leader depends on the GOP winning at least one of those races.

These three are only the latest to realize that the return on investment for loyalty to Donald Trump is exactly zero. McConnell, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler all stood on the Senate floor in February and acquitted Trump on charges he abused his power in office and obstructed Congress. But now that it's time for Trump to return the favor, our self-absorbed President seems to be doing everything he can to make it harder for all three -- and perhaps giving the Democrats the gift of control of the Senate as he leaves office.

  DAP Youth chief: Former Perak MB Ahmad Faizal ousted for the good of the people
Posted by: superadmin - 12-26-2020, 12:15 PM - Forum: Politics - No Replies

[Image: howard_lee0211.jpg]

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 26 — The move to oust Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu as Perak mentri besar was taken for the benefit of the people, DAP Socialist Youth (Dapsy) chief Howard Lee Chuan How has said.

In a statement issued late last night, he alleged that greed led to Ahmad Faizal’s downfall, along with a deteriorating performance under the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) government, which was contrary to his behaviour during the Pakatan Harapan (PH) administration.

“Perhaps many do not realise that Ahmad Faizal’s performance was deteriorating and he was getting greedy under the PPBM government, compared to the PH era when he was reined in from any abuse of power,” Lee said.

Malaysians were unhappy with the change of power in Perak earlier this month, as they felt it showed politicians remain focused on power struggles rather than bread-and-butter issues during this time of pandemic.

Perak’s Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah even went as far as to say he took no pride in appointing the state’s third mentri besar since the conclusion of the 14th general election in 2018.

The Sultan also said this was a reflection of failure in the Perak Legislative Assembly.

In his statement, Lee gave three reasons to explain why the Opposition has a stronger voice now that Ahmad Faizal is no longer Perak mentri besar.

Firstly, all districts represented in the State Assembly will get a fair allocation irrespective of whether their elected representative is aligned with the government or a member of the Opposition.

  Alor Setar woman braves the cold and Covid-19 to feed Melbourne’s homeless
Posted by: superadmin - 12-26-2020, 12:06 PM - Forum: Inspiring Stories - No Replies

[Image: Cecilia-Chuah-emel-pic-261220-1.jpg]

PETALING JAYA: After noticing some of Melbourne’s homeless sitting in the Queen Victoria Market car park one evening in Melbourne, Cecilia Chuah rushed home, whipped up a batch of fried rice and returned to give them a warm meal.

What started that night last May, with just four boxes of fried rice, has now become a weekly effort. Cecelia, with her daughter Shanice, husband Chai and cousin Alex in tow, gives out 100 containers of Malaysian food every Tuesday to the queuing homeless at the car park.

Last week, with Christmas around the corner, Cecilia and her family presented more than 70 new backpacks filled with clothes, toiletries and chocolates in addition to the usual containers of food.

Originally from Alor Setar, Kedah, Cecilia said she had always had an interest in helping those in need.

  We’ll fight Umno if we have to, says Selangor PPBM chief
Posted by: superadmin - 12-26-2020, 10:25 AM - Forum: Politics - No Replies

[Image: FMT-BERSATU-PPBM-LOGO-06.jpg]

PETALING JAYA: Selangor PPBM has responded to an Umno threat by warning that it is well prepared to fight the dominant Barisan Nasional partner in the next general election.

“If there are meant to be clashes, so be it,” Selangor PPBM chairman Abdul Rashid Asari told FMT.

He said it was clear to him, from Umno’s electoral performance in Selangor since the 12th general election, that the people of the state did not want it to govern them.

There is currently a tussle for seats among the Perikatan Nasional (PN) partners in Selangor.
Selangor Umno chief Noh Omar recently said Umno would have no choice but to compete against PPBM if it were to nominate candidates for constituencies his party won in the previous election.

Rashid said his side was not worried over the possibility of contesting against Umno, but he tried to soften his reaction by saying PPBM would continue to work for the PN agenda.

He said his party, together with PAS, would press on with PN’s work to win the hearts of voters.

  2 weddings which show the hypocrisy in Malaysia
Posted by: superadmin - 12-26-2020, 10:03 AM - Forum: Local News - No Replies

[Image: mariam-mokhtar-column-300x400-1.jpg]
Malaysia is the sick nation of Asia. The country is in a mess, but this mess has not been caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are suffering from 63 years of the policies of Umno and Umno-Baru and unlike Covid-19, there is no vaccine for corrupt and greedy politicians, incompetent MPs and hypocritical politicians. Umno-Baru sold the Malays a lie, which unfortunately was believed lock, stock and barrel.

Today, politicians charged with graft are granted full acquittals or discharge not amounting to an acquittal (DNAA) but members of the public who steal bread are jailed and fined. The poor get poorer, the rich become wealthier. The poor who break the law are punished, the rich get off scot-free.
