Despite royal reprimand, Anwar keeps faith with Dr Wan Azizah

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 5 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is refusing to nominate anyone beyond his wife, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, to be Selangor mentri besar despite censure from the state palace for failing to submit three candidates as requested.

Party sources told local English daily The Star that the PKR de facto leader fended off calls from within the party to submit more names and is adamant on Dr Wan Azizah being the only one put forth.

“Azmin Ali had called on Anwar to be more rational and submit two more names as requested by the Sultan. But Anwar refused to budge,” said the source.

PAS previously proposed Azmin as an alternative to Dr Wan Azizah.

After being reproached by the Selangor palace for failing to comply with its request for at least three nominees for the Sultan’s consideration, PKR had said yesterday it would submit two more candidates within the next 48 hours.

The party’s secretary-general, Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, said PKR “will announce and explain” its next move once it is finalised.

Selangor’s Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah last week asked the three Pakatan Rakyat (PR) parties — DAP, PKR and PAS — to each send in at least three names for him to consider for the state government’s top post, by September 3.

The DAP and PKR were steadfast in their decision to nominate only Dr Wan Azizah for the post.

But PAS, in defiance of a PR presidential council decision on August 17, sent in three names yesterday.

Saifuddin said the party had contemplated PAS’ nominees, but no decisions have been made.

“Mustafa said two PKR and one PAS representative were named. We discussed the scenario… but even then we don’t know who their nominees from PKR were,” he said, referring to his PAS counterpart, Datuk Mustafa Ali.

PAS submitted three names to the state ruler directly from the party president’s office.

The current crisis stems from PKR’s move to oust Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim from office, including sacking him from the party and leaving the state in the hands of an independent mentri besar.

Khalid has since resigned as mentri besar but remains in office in a caretaker capacity until his successor is chosen.

Female doctor is actually a guy

Sunday April 14, 2013

MALACCA: With his soft and feminine features, the petite figure comes across as a prim and proper female medical doctor.

Always clad in a baju kurung and headscarf, “Dr Ika” the name the doctor used managed to con several private clinics here with fake certificates and had himself hired as a locum at RM45 an hour.

He was actually a jobless man who did not even finish his nursing course in two institutions in Selangor and Johor.

Said to have given “extra attention and tender loving care” to male patients, his cover was recently exposed when he supposedly called a male patient on his handphone after hours.

The patient’s wife found out and complained to the clinic last Monday and internal investigations followed before the police were alerted.

Malacca commercial crimes chief Supt Soh Hock Sing said a special team was set up to observe and gather information before an undercover operation was mounted.

“We decided to act fast as it involved patients’ lives. So, one of our officers posed as a patient seeking medical treatment at the clinic. The man behaved like a real woman doctor and examined the officer. He even prescribed some medicine,” he said yesterday.

The team raided the clinic and questioned the “doctor” before arresting him at 6pm on Thursday.

Initial investigations showed that the 26-year-old from Sabah, who lived in Ampang, was also a dropout from an engineering course in an institution in Sabah.

“We believe he used the same trick in Perak and Pahang before coming to Malacca in January,” Supt Soh said.

“Patients who think that they had been given prescriptions by this fake doctor are advised to stop taking them,” he said, adding that clinics hiring locums should be more careful with their background checks in the future.

CYCLING: Landmark rider

ON A ROLL: Fatehah breaks new ground in London

FATEHAH Mustapa is accustomed to creating history right from the beginning of her cycling career and the London Olympics provides just another test of how well her star has shone.

The Kuala Terengganu lass lines up for the women’s keirin at the London Velodrome as the first ever woman cyclist to qualify for the Olympics and she has achieved that four years ahead of schedule, as the Malaysian National Cycling Federation (MNCF) had initially targeted her for the 2016 Olympics.
It’s all been fast-tracked as the reigning Asian women’s keirin champion has gone through two of her best seasons yet, which has seen her rise to prominence on the world stage as well.

Fatehah has come a long way since she first exploded onto the scene in the 2004 Malaysia Games in Negri Sembilan when she stunned a field of mainly elite national riders to win the road race gold medal.

At just 15 then, she set the record as the youngest ever cyclist to win a gold medal in that Games which still stands.

There was never a doubt about Fatehah’s potential and since she went under the watchful eye of national head coach John Beasley at the elite squad’s base in Melbourne two years ago, it has been as if a fast forward button had been switched on.

Malaysia had waited 44 years before Noor Azian Alias won the country’s first medal in a women’s event at the Asian Cycling Championships, a silver medal in the road road in Bangkok in 2007.
But Fatehah had bettered that with multiple medals since she raced as an elite rider in 2008 and topped that with another piece of history for herself when she delivered the first gold medal in the keirin at the Asian meet in Kuala Lumpur in April.

By now, the country’s most famous woman cyclist, Fatehah will enter the Olympics, ranked 13th in the world and her chances of going beyond what she has achieved in the UCI World Cup legs and the World Championships have been heightened by the regulations limiting nations to just one rider for the keirin in London.

That means Russia, who have three riders in the top 13, France who have four and Britain who have two, will only be able to field one rider, roughly placing Fatehah as the seventh seed entering the Games.

“For sure I’m going to give it my all. My first target is to make the final. Everything will be towards that. When I make the final, then anything can happen.
WIth the right strategy and if everything goes my way, I may be in with a shot for a medal,” said Fatehah.
She is with the rest of the squad in a training camp in Ghent, Belgium ahead of the Olympics and yesterday, the squad headed for Cologne, Germany where they will go through their final preparation race.
• Name: Fatehah Mustapa
• Date of birth: March 11, 1989
• Place of birth: Kuala Terengganu
• Achievements: 2004 Malaysia Games – women’s road race gold medal
2011: Sea Games, Jakarta: gold medals in the 200m sprint, team sprint and 500m time trial.
2012: Asian Championships – keirin gold medal.
• London expectations: Hoping to reach the keirin final

Islamic department powerless to act against gay Malay man: Malaysian official
by News Editor

Following recent reports that the Islamic Development may take stern action against Azwan Ismail who came out in a YouTube video, a spokesperson now says the organisation has “no power to take legal action.”


The Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) says it will not take any legal action against a Malay-Muslim man who came out as gay in an online video two weeks ago. The video, which is part of Seksualiti Merdeka’s It Gets Better 15-video campaign, had attracted over 150,000 views on YouTube and a flurry of news reports, blogs and comments by various political leaders and even death threats before it was removed on Dec 29.

Azwan Ismail, 32Organisers of the campaign Seksualiti Merdeka said it has decided to remove Azwan Ismail’s “Saya gay, saya okay” video for “his safety as his life has been threatened by various comments and blogs, while the religious authorities have also been reported as saying they plan to charge him.” Organisers also “regret that so far nobody in authority has denounced the threats of violence,” the statement read.

In the 3-minute clip, Azwan Ismail spoke in Malay about coming out as gay as being particularly difficult because of “religious and cultural factors (that) have defined our lives, telling us who we can be and who we can’t.”

Recent media reports had highlighted that the Islamic Development Department of Malaysia (JAKIM) would be taking stern action against Azwan for his revelation.

Just days after its release, the video clip made newspaper headlines in the Muslim-majority country with Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom, a Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, calling on the religious authorities to monitor the activities of gay groups.

“For Muslims, we must remember that being gay is against our religious teaching,” he was quoted in the local media as saying. “We want this activity to be monitored closely by the authorities and appropriate actions to be taken to prevent it from spreading as it can tarnish the image of Islam.”

However, according to The Malaysian Insider online today, JAKIM director-general Datuk Wan Mohamad Sheikh Abdul Aziz said that the organisation has “no power to take legal action, the ones who can do so are the state-level religious authorities as well as the police.”

He said that Jakim could only take “precautionary” measures such as working with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) as well as other agencies.

“Well, our actions do not have to be a matte of legal recourse, more of preventing the gay culture from spreading throughout the country.

“We will take measures such as providing rehabilitation programmes for those affected,” said Wan Mohamad.

NUR Alert gets green light from cabinet

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 13 — A child abduction alert system, which serves to trace and inform on the disappearance of children aged 12 and below, has been approved by the cabinet.

In a joint statement, Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil and Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the Cabinet also decided to name the system “NUR Alert” or National Urgent Response Alert.

The statement said the initiative, to be chaired by the Royal Malaysia Police, would be implemented immediately, with the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry acting as the deputy chair.

“Information will be spread through posters, websites, text messages and electronic message boards,” the statement added.

The system’s implementation would also involved strategic collaboration between the government, private sector and non-governmental organisations, the statement said. – Bernama
