OccupyKL's insight:

Sabahans believe that the numbers are steadily rising despite the federal government’s repeated promise to address their concerns.

 

Will the RCI investigate and take Mahathir and others responsible to court?

 

Unless the RCI investigates the culprits responsible for treason and abuse of power, the whole effort would be a political appeasement.

OccupyKL's insight:

The Election Commission’s registering officer asked how they had obtained their ICs – the answer was “from Project Mahathir”.


The registering officer testified to this during the hearing of the 1999 Likas election petition.


Sworn testimony at the same proceedings by one Hassnar Ibrahim revealed the fact that deputy home minister Megat Junid Megat Ayub had chaired meetings, at which it was mentioned that Mahathir had approved the ‘Project’. 


This had happened in the 1980s. The testimony was not challenged

The sordid Deepak/Bala/Altantuya scandals are shameful testimony, not to success but corruption and subversion, of the “efficacy of national institutions” as Malaysia would not have reached such a
OccupyKL's insight:

Whoever actually killed her, who actually instructed her killing, should be responsible. They must take the responsibility.”


This question has been asked again and again. The AG should tell us, who ordered the killing and why? This is the most important aspect of the case which has not been answered until now.

The 5 power plants were needed to provide sufficient standby power that TNB could not provide through the main power grid lines. And these 5 plants, although not supplying power simultaneously, had to be on standby 24/7. Thus, it is very costly to have all 5 systems working when there is no or insufficient income because the power has to be burnt or wasted in any case.
