GABEM Seeks 'Teeth' To Monitor Malay Economic Agenda

KUALA LUMPUR, April 12 (Bernama) -- The Federation of Malay Economic Bodies (GABEM) today sought "a little" power to monitor the agenda to entrench the Malay economy and thus ensure that what has been promised is delivered.

This request to the government arose from the roundtable discussion here organised by GABEM and attended by about 500 people representing 130 organisations.

"The roundtable participants feel GABEM must get some authority to enable it to act more effectively to monitor and keep an eye on what's taking place at the lower levels so that what is planned by the higher levels does reach, through the delivery system, the target group, the grassroots," GABEM chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik told reporters after chairing the roundtable.

"This is a difficult task, and GABEM must have some teeth ... the Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) can figure out how this can be done."

The roundtable was aimed at, among others, drawing up strategies in enforcing the New Economic Policy (NEP) following the outcome of the March 8 general election that has changed the country's political landscape.

Abdul Rahim said the roundtable agreed to ask the federal government, through its ministries, to focus in a more intensive manner on ensuring that development is not hampered in the five states that fell to the opposition parties in the election - Kelantan, Kedah, Penang, Perak and Selangor.

He said the roundtable expressed particular concern that "conflicts of interest" could occur, where certain areas which the federal government wants to develop will not be approved by the state governments concerned.

"This will blunt the federal government's efforts to uplift the socio-economic level of the people and eradicate poverty," he added.

The roundtable, according to him, also wants the recruitment of top-level officers in government-linked companies (GLCs) to be from among those who understand and appreciate the Malay Agenda that has arisen from the NEP.

"They must be steeped not just in corporate acumen and have a long and good track record. They also need to have yet another quality, that is, understand and empathise with what the Malay Agenda is about, how it has emerged from the NEP to help the less fortunate Malays and non-Malays," Abdul Rahim stressed.

"The NEP is part of the Malaysian Constitution which provides special privileges to the Malays. The Constitution protects the right of the Malays and it is to put this into effect that the NEP was drawn up.

"It is to turn the NEP into a programme that the Malay Agenda emerged. This must be appreciated by all leaders who have been entrusted to administer."

The roundtable asked GLCs to not just look after their own interests but also play their part in restructuring society because this is the social responsibility required of them under the NEP.

"If we take only professionally qualified people who only ensure that their organisations derive huge profits ... profit, profit and more profit but not being involved in restructuring society, then the NEP cannot be successful," Abdul Rahim said.

Beberapa bulan yang lalu kedengaran bahawa wakil Josophine menemui pemimpin tertinggi parti alternatif mengemukakan bukti bekaitan dengan kes hubungan sex nya dengan RTC pada 1985 untuk di saman semula. Besar kemungkinan kes ini akan di kemukakan tidak lama lagi, mungkin sebelum penamaan calun pada pilihan raya akan datang.

Karpal Singh di jangka akan beraksi lagi. Seterus nya satu lagi kes yang di jangka timbul ia lah kes saman melibatkan saorang wanita pegawai tinggi kerajaan pusat yang mempunyai anak luar nikah dengan RTC semasa bertugas di Melaka dulu untuk mendapatakan pampasan hidup anak tersebut. Suami nya menceraikan nya apabila mendapati isteri nya yang waktu itu bertugas di bawah RTC mengandung apa bila dia pergi belajar ke luar negeri selama setahun di bawah anjuran jabatan kerajaan tempat dia bertugas.

Seterus nya ada satu lagi kes anak luar nikah RTC dengan perempuan cina di Muar juga akan membuat tuntutan, so the never ending RTC stories series of perogol bersiri yang masih bebas dan bermaharajalela.

The application stems from a somewhat lurid and intriguing episode. On 13 September 1985 the second defendant, Mr. Karpal Singh, an advocate and solicitor of the High Court Malaya, filed on behalf of the first defendant, Josephine Doris Nunis a suit in this Court against Datuk Seri Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik, who was at the relevant time, and is currently, holding the office of the Chief Minister of Malacca.

It was alleged, inter alia, in that suit that the said Abdul Rahim had befriended the first defendant who was then employed as a waitress in a local hotel and that he had showered gifts on her. The first defendant claimed that as a result of the asseveration of marriage made by this person she had on various occasions rendered him sexual favours at several named places in Malacca, Kuala Lumpur and Port Dickson. She claimed that she had given up her job as waitress at his request and that as a result of his subsequent unreasonable conduct in breaking off their association she had suffered mental anguish and humiliation. That suit which was registered in the High Court Registry as Civil Suit No 297/85 shall be hereinafter referred to as the 'Original Writ'.

An account of this story, and in one particular case the entire allegations in the writ, appeared in the newspaper the following day. According to the plaintiff in the present case, the second defendant had personally handed over unnumbered and unsealed copies of the writ to reporters who had in turn made copies of the writ and distributed them throughout the country. The plaintiff in the present suit ('libel suit) said that he is a member of the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO). He claims that he is suing on behalf of himself and all the other members of the Alai Branch in the Kota Malacca UMNO Division and alleges that the second defendant whom he described as a bitter and unscrupulous rival party member had distributed the writ containing the allegation of adultery and its subsequent publication in the newspapers with the motive or malicious intention of defaming the State Government and the UMNO. He went on to particularise the allegation of derogation as follows:


The plaintiff and UMNO members and officials are embarrassed in the mosques by PAS members and by the public as supporters of an adulterer;


UMNO Wanita avoids UMNO male members as a group of sex maniacs;


UMNO male members are prevented from attending UMNO meeting by their wives for fear of involving themselves in Sex Orgies;


UMNO male members are prevented by their wives from associating with the Honourable Chief Minister;


The DAP and PAS are holding ceramahs all over the Country and Malacca repeating the Statements of the defendants saying that they pity UMNO members for being followers of an adulterer;


In repetition of the defendants' defamatory statement UMNO members are now being told by the members of the public that UMNO has fallen to a woman;


The people of Kampong Morton, Malacca who were promised to have their area developed but due to the economic recession the Malacca State Government could not implement the programme and because the Portuguese Settlement has M$2,000,000 development already carried out for the Portuguese Cultural Centre, the ordinary Malays are abusing the UMNO members that the Portuguese Settlement has got the said development because of the Chief Minister's alleged adultery with the first Defendant.


The centre in Malacca of all this abuse and defamation of UMNO members is in Restaurant ANDA, Jalan Hang Tuah, Malacca their recitation is from the second defendant's unnumbered and unsealed said Statement of Claim; and


At the last Maulud Nabi at Kubu Stadium Malacca because of the defendant's aforesaid false and defamatory statements UMNO members were jeered by the pious worshippers of ALLAH.

The plaintiff claims that the publication of the contents of this writ had jointly and severally depicted both UMNO members and the plaintiff as persons of immoral and unIslamic principles and accordingly had brought them into hatred, ridicule, disrepute and public odium and contempt and subjected the plaintiff and UMNO members to low and lewd remarks from the public and members of opposition parties like the Democratic Action Party (DAP) and Party Islam Malaysia (PAS). The writ also went on at some lengths on the mala fides of Mr. Karpal Singh and his intention as a bitter rival opposition member in publicising this case. By and large these insinuations are not to the point for the purposes of this application. For many decades now our Courts have enduringly precluded political issues from inhibiting their judicial considerations. This Court does not propose to make any exception to this practice either. The remarks, so far as they are irrelevant to the present issue, shall be ignored.

The original writ, however, was designed for a transitory debut only in this case. Four days after it was filed, the first defendant filed a notice of discharge of her solicitor, Mr. Karpal Singh and of her intention to act in person. On 17 September 1985 she finally discontinued the action before service of the writ could be effected on Abdul Rahim. The present application before this Court is to set aside the libel suit against Mr. Karpal Singh only, as service has not been effected on the first defendant.

The principle governing an application under o 18 r 19 has been succinctly set out by Lord Denning MR. in the Court of Appeal Case of Drummond-Jackson v BMA [1970] 1 WLR 688, 693 as follows:

The procedure of "striking out" is ready to hand. We have used it many times lately to decide preliminary issues. For instance, whether a barrister can be made liable for negligence in conducting a case in court: Rondel v Worsley [1969] 1 AC 191; whether the Inland Revenue Commissioners are bound to give a taxpayer the opportunity of seeing certain documents: Wiseman v Borneman [1969] 3 WLR 706; whether students of scientology are entitled to remain in England: Schmidt v Home Office and whether an action lies for maliciously applying for a bench warrant: Roy v Prior [1970] 1 QB 283. All these issues were decided on an application to strike out the statement of claim. They took days to argue, but in the end the proceedings were struck out. It became clear, after argument, that the facts alleged by the plaintiff did not give rise to a cause of action.


Daripada Abu Umarah iaitu al-Bara' bin 'Azib radhiallahu anhuma, katanya: "Kita semua diperintah oleh Rasulullah s.a.w. untuk melakukan tujuh perkara, iaitu meninjau orang sakit, mengikuti janazah, menentasymitkan orang yang bersin, menolong orang yang lemah, membantu orang yang teraniaya, meratakan salam dan melaksanakan sumpah."

(Muttafaq 'alaih)
