opinion-clipart-k12118272DECEMBER 9 — Young Malaysians know the world is getting more competitive than ever, that companies and entire sectors can rise and fall dramatically, and that an event in a place they never heard of can somehow affect their lives in Malaysia.

Even though some things might seem inevitable, like transformative technological improvements, not everyone will be able to access, or indeed desire, the fruit of these changes. Combined with the volatility of oil prices, the state of our currency or even the challenge of finding a job, a great many are uncertain about the future.

The root causes of much of this uncertainty lie in geopolitics. Read more

PETALING JAYA: Layanan yang diberikan terhadap Pengerusi Bersih 2.0 Maria Chin Abdullah ketika ditahan di bawah Akta Kesalahan Keselamatan (Langkah-langkah Khas) atau Sosma baru-baru ini adalah sebahagian daripada prosedur biasa (SOP), menurut Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed.

“Beliau hanya melalui SOP normal oleh polis dan ini menunjukkan dia tidak menerima apa-apa layanan istimewa,” timbalan menteri dalam negeri itu memberitahu FMT.

Semalam, Maria yang ditahan dari 18 ke 28 November di sebuah lokasi rahsia mendedahkan 8 pegawai Cawangan Khas bergilir-gilir menyoal siasat beliau sepanjang hari, selain dipaksa berjalan ke bilik soal siasat dengan gari dan memakai kaca mata hitam.

Beliau juga dilarang memakai pakaian dalam dan ia menimbulkan keadaan tidak selesa kerana semua penyiasat adalah lelaki.

Maria disiasat selepas dituduh mendapat dana luar negara untuk menjalankan aktiviti menentang kerajaan.

“Saya disoal siasat polis dan paling teruk saya masih tak dapat 1 sen pun,” katanya. Read more

PETALING JAYA, Dec 9 — More than 50 per cent of Immigration personnel manning Immigration counters at KL International Airport and klia2 were replaced in recent months following elements of sabotage in the Malaysian Immigration system (myIMMs).

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had, in a recent exclusive interview with Malay Mail, expressed concern over the episode which had since seen 37 Immigration personnel detained under the Secuity Offences (Special Measures) Act (SOSMA) and  Prevention of Crime Act (POCA).

There are some 1,500 Immigration staff working at the counters at both airports.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also the home minister, said: “I am concerned about the integrity of those manning crucial positions, especially at the nation’s entry and exit points.

“At least 50 per cent front liners at KLIA and klia2 have been replaced.”

He said the move was necessary to beef up security at airports and eliminate any risk of sabotage in the future.

In addition to replacing staff, the Immigration Department would install 300 new facial recognition devices at airports and ports nationwide, as reported by Malay Mail on Wednesday. Read more
