He will also have the right to ask the lead question to ministers on policies, Bills and motions, subject to existing speaking conventions, the offices of the Speaker of Parliament and the Leader of the House said in a joint statement on Tuesday (July 28). The statement set out the duties of the new role, as well as the parliamentary privileges and resources accorded to Mr Singh, who is an MP for Aljunied GRC. He will receive confidential briefings by the Government on "select matters of national security and external relations, and in the event of a national crisis or emergency", the statement said. As the LO, Mr Singh will also have more time for his speeches, equivalent to that given to political office-holders. According to the Standing Orders of Parliament, all MPs are allowed to speak for 20 minutes in response to questions raised, and can address a committee of the whole of Parliament for up to 10 minutes. Ministers and parliamentary secretaries are entitled to speak for up to 40 minutes. In terms of additional resources, Mr Singh will receive an allowance that is double that of an elected MP, or $385,000 a year, the statement said. As for staff support, he will receive additional allowance to hire up to three additional legislative assistants, on top of the allowance that all MPs receive to hire one legislative assistant and a secretarial assistant. He will also be provided a secretary to support him administratively with parliamentary business. Mr Singh will have an office and the use of a meeting room in Parliament House.

  5. Anybody follow Malaysian politics? Getting very exciting. http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/mobile/malaysia/article/najibs-suit-wont-silence-me-says-dap-lawmaker --------------- Tony Pua I will not be shackled by the defamation suit brought by the Dato’ Seri Najib Razak because I am supported by millions of Malaysians out there who demand good governance, transparency and accountability from the Prime Minister and his Government My lawyer, Gobind Singh who is also the Member of Parliament for Puchong, has received the writ served by Dato’ Seri Najib Razak’s lawyers at 4.30pm yesterday evening. The suit by the Prime Minister accused me of having defamed him in my speech at a DAP Petaling Jaya Fund-Raising Dinner on 3 November 2014 where I spoke extensively on the “mother of the mother of the mother of all scandals”, 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB). This suit is the first defamation suit ever brought by a Prime Minister against a Member of Parliament in Malaysia. It appears that the timing of the suit is coming at a time when 1MDB is facing a massive crisis on all fronts – the inability to service its massive RM42 billion debt, and mounting exposés on fraudulent transactions and even possibly embezzlement billions of ringgit of 1MDB funds. Hence the suit could have been filed as a strategy to silence me and other Government’s critics. However, I would like to inform the Prime Minister that if that was the plan, he has failed miserably. Instead, the suit only strengthened my motivation to pursue, investigate and expose more corruption, abuse of power and incompetence in 1MDB as well as other Government activities, knowing that I am on the right track. I will certainly not be shackled by the suit because I know I am supported by millions of Malaysians who are equally astounded by the sheer audacity of the 1MDB scam. Like me, they demand good governance, transparency and accountability from the Prime Minister and his Government. I would like to declare here that I will contest the suit by the Prime Minister. At the same time, I would like to express my gratitude to the many lawyers who have contacted me to offer their services pro bono. ----------------------------

    369 gang leader jailed for 2 killings

    Gang leader gets 18 years' jail for two killings By Alethea Lim Court Correspondent AT 16, Balachandran Bernard became the section head of the '369' secret society. For giving the go-ahead, Balachandran bore responsibility for the assaults. --WONG KWAI CHOW The middle child in a family of three boys, he assumed the top position in the gang's Teban Gardens area after the then section head was sent to jail. Balachandran, who was educated only up to Primary 5, had been recruited into the gang three years earlier. His new position included reporting the group's activities to the gang's main leader. He also became a mentor for those members who went to him for help. A year after his release, , he ordered two separate attacks which resulted in two men being killed and a third being injured seriously. Yesterday, Balachandran, now 20, was sentenced to 18 years' jail and the maximum 24 strokes of the cane. He had on Tuesday pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter while being part of an unlawful assembly and one charge of causing grievous hurt with dangerous weapons while part of a gang. His lawyer, Mr S.S. Dhillon, said the youth never laid a finger on the two men whom his gang battered to death. Balachandran had only participated in the assault on Mr Nasir Din Meera Sahib, 37. But Judicial Commissioner Woo Bih Li disagreed and said that 'the person who gave the go-ahead is no less responsible than the attackers' and should bear primary responsibility for the assaults. The first attack happened at East Coast Park , where the gang assaulted Mr Hamzir Hamin, 41, using wooden poles and metal rods. Mr Hamzir died in hospital from multiple head injuries four days later. On Oct 15, the gang set upon Mr Nasir Din and his friend, Mr Roslan Mohamed, 31, with parangs. The pair were at a pub in City Plaza in Geylang Road celebrating Mr Roslan's birthday. Mr Roslan died at the scene from a neck wound while his friend received 50 slashes and spent 15 days in hospital with injuries to his arms, back, neck, scalp and chest. The attacks on both occasions were unprovoked. Balachandran went on the run but was arrested last July in Johor Baru. In a statement read out in court, victim Nasir Din said: 'They slashed me a few times on my back. I was bleeding all over my body.' When he collapsed, the gang continued slashing him. 'I thought I was going to die,' recalled the father of two children, aged 13 and six months. Mr Nasir Din stopped work because of his injuries. He has already spent about $30,000 on his medical bills. 'I have to live with the ordeal of losing a good friend and being a burden to my family. I will never forget this terrifying incident for the rest of my life,' he said.

  21. Indonesian 'sex cult' leader arrested AFP AFP - Friday, January 30 JAKARTA (AFP) - - An Indonesian cult head accused of leading his followers in wild orgies and giving sermons in his underpants was arrested Thursday and faces charges of "lewd acts" and insulting religion, police said. ADVERTISEMENT Agus Noro, the head of the Satria Piningit Weteng Buwono sect, turned himself in early in the morning after a three-day hunt, Jakarta police spokesman Zulkarnain told AFP. Noro, who is called Agus Imam Solihin or "leader of the faithful" by followers, is alleged to have had sex with his disciples and instructed them to have group sex while he watched in the sect's mansion outside Jakarta. "We're investigating him based on a report made by a female follower named Kartiningsih on January 26. She complained that Noro had asked her to massage him and touch his genitals," Zulkarnain said. "She was also made to have sex with him, while her husband and followers watched," he added. "Lewd acts" and insulting religion carry jail terms of up to nine years and seven years respectively, Zulkarnain said. "If our investigations prove that he carried out lewd acts, we'll name him a suspect and hand him over to the court," Zulkarnain said. "He has about 40 followers, all adults. At the beginning, Noro told them to pray and carry out religious recitations. After several months, he told them he was God and that they didn't have to do that any more," Zulkarnain said. Noro gave religious sermons wearing only his underpants and told his disciples they would be taught "Kamasutra" sex techniques to use in the afterlife, former follower Eko was quoted as saying by news website Okezone. "We just obeyed like we'd been hypnotised," Eko said. Police described the sex guru, believed to be in his 40s, as looking "cool... just like youngsters nowadays," with dyed brown hair and fair skin, the website reported. Picnic si boh?
  22. By Sue-Ann Chia "Yaw Shin Leong says change of heart partly prompted by criticism against him." Personally, I will have a change of heart if what I believed in was proven wrong and not by criticisms from family or friends. WORKERS' Party (WP) leader Yaw Shin Leong, who won praise and criticism alike for disclosing that he had voted for the People's Action Party (PAP) in the 2006 General Election, now regrets the decision. The 32-year-old businessman said his change of heart came after 'introspection and contemplation' as he prepared to mark eight years of activism with the WP on June 24. 'I have woken up from this matrix-like slumber. Voting for a candidate from the ruling regime based on my shallow personal liking and consideration had contravened the very ideals which I had originally entered opposition politics for,' he said in the latest posting on his blog. 'It also contradicted our efforts in urging voters to value the choice provided by opposition candidates.' The Bukit Panjang resident said he would not vote for his MP, Dr Teo Ho Pin, at the next election, and urged Singaporeans to 'vote in solidarity to deny the PAP'. Mr Yaw, the WP's organising secretary, was caught in the eye of an online storm last month after saying that he had voted for Dr Teo over the Singapore Democratic Party's Mr Ling How Doong. Dr Teo was the better candidate, he had said, adding: 'There is nothing inherently wrong for me to vote for an MP, regardless of his/her partisan background, whom in my opinion is the better man who can better serve the interests of Singapore and my community.' That disclosure sparked criticism from opposition supporters who attacked him for voting for the 'other side', and for sending conflicting signals. He was, after all, head of the six-man WP team which stood against a PAP team led by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in Ang Mo Kio GRC. But others praised him for his political maturity. Mr Yaw said, when contacted on Wednesday, that his change of heart was also prompted by the criticism he faced. Friends scolded him for letting them down. And strangers called or told him during his walkabouts that he had disappointed them. 'I realised I had sent a confusing message to supporters,' he told The Straits Times. 'Being an opposition member, I must put the need for pluralism as a higher priority than voting for a better municipal MP.' While party leaders did not rap him, WP chief and Hougang MP Low Thia Khiang did tell Mr Yaw that in voting for the better candidate, he had fallen into 'the propaganda trap of the PAP'. Mr Yaw said in his blog that the main consideration for many who voted for the WP was 'the need to have a balanced political system and a voice in Parliament...' And he accepted criticism that had Ang Mo Kio voters adopted his 'better candidate' argument, 'my team would not even come close to securing 33.86 per cent of the votes'. Despite what he said in his blog, Mr Yaw told The Straits Times that he did not want Singaporeans to vote for the opposition at all cost too. He said: 'I encourage Singaporeans to vote with their conscience. If they really feel that the opposition candidates are not deserving, don't support them.' Political observer Eugene Tan said Mr Yaw's latest post showed he had decided to put on the hat of an opposition politician instead of being just a 'responsible voter'.
  23. Wah.... Prison Break Singapore Style... Are we expecting more road blocks over the next few days? ========================================== THE leader of the Singapore Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) network, Mas Selamat Kastari, escaped from the Whitley Road detention centre at about 4.05 pm on Wednesday, said the Ministry of Home Affairs in a statement. A massive manhunt is underway to track down the escaped detainee, who walks with a limp. 'He is not known to be armed. Extensive police resources have been deployed to track him down,' said the ministry statement. The public is asked to contact the police at 999 if they know of his whereabouts.
  24. March 8, 2008 MM blames complacency for JI leader's escape If fugitive leaves the country, Singapore must brace itself for a 'return hit' By Peh Shing Huei MANAMA (BAHRAIN) - THE escape of Mas Selamat Kastari is a 'very severe lesson in complacency' and it shows that Singapore is not infallible, said Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew yesterday. However, if the former Jemaah Islamiah (JI) leader is still in Singapore, Mr Lee believed that he would not be able to launch an attack. But if he has escaped to Indonesia, he would be able to link up with his old networks and Mr Lee warned Singapore that it must brace itself for a 'return hit sometime'. Asked by Singapore reporters here for the impact of the escape on the country's international reputation, Mr Lee replied that it was 'not very good' for its security services. 'We should have known that here is a man who has had several escapes,' he said at his wrap-up media interview here after a week-long visit to three Gulf nations. 'But obviously, he is a very wily sort of person and must have won the confidence of whoever were his custodians. 'So when he said he wanted to go to the toilet, they allowed him to go to the toilet. Whether the toilet had bars and there was no exit from the windows, that has to be explained. 'I give him full marks for having won the confidence of his custodians - that he's completely docile, completely passive and he's going to remain in captivity.' Mas Selamat, 47, who had previously planned to crash a plane into Changi Airport, escaped from Internal Security Department (ISD) custody at the Whitley Detention Centre on Feb 27. He has been on the run since, with his escape having sparked the biggest manhunt in Singapore's history. Mr Lee said that the escape showed that Singapore is not infallible. 'It shows that it is a fallacy, it is stupid to believe we are infallible. We are not infallible. One mistake and we've got a big explosive in our midst. So let's not take this lightly,' he said. He called it a 'very severe lesson of complacency' - the authorities had been confident that they had their prisoner 'sized up', but he had sized up his custodians in turn. 'But he had the custodian sized up, he had the custodian feeling comfortable that he can go to the toilet where there are no bars in the windows, and he got through. Very smart fellow. So we are dealing with a smart man.' Mr Lee said that he was 'not so worried', as long as the fugitive had not made arrangements prior to his escape and was still in Singapore. 'He can't assemble an explosive in Singapore on his own, he can't get a team in Singapore, a JI team, to mount an attack. So we just keep the pressure on, make sure he doesn't get out of Singapore,' he added. 'If he's already got out of Singapore, we won't know. Police believe he hasn't got accomplices. It was not a prepared escape. Then he's hiding somewhere, either in the jungle eating berries or whatever, or somebody is giving him refuge. 'Keep him in Singapore and he can do not much harm because he needs explosives, needs to get a plan, mount it, get people to execute the plan and that is easier done in Indonesia than in Singapore.' When Mas Selamat escaped a government dragnet in December 2001, 'he escaped into Malaysia then he went into Indonesia because Malaysia has got smaller land area and tighter controls', said Mr Lee. 'So if he can get into Indonesia, he has his old networks, then we have to watch out for a return hit sometime.' While it is good for citizens to stay vigilant, Mr Lee believed that the key is to deduce what are Mas Selamat's options. 'Is he on his own, hiding in a culvert in the jungle? How does he get food? Or has he taken refuge with a friend's friend? Not the usual friends because he would know that all his friends would be covered,' he said. 'So he would have to get his friend to give him another friend who is not under surveillance, who nobody knows about, that ISD does not know about, and gives him cover. 'So we have to find out. It's a game of tracing the possibilities. I'm not a security expert, I'm not a detective...but we do have people who understand what we ought to be following. But we ought to keep the pressure up.' http://www.straitstimes.com/Latest%2BNews/...34.html?vgnmr=1
