ADUN JADI CALON PARLIMEN DI SUNGAI BESAR, APAKAH KEDUDUKAN KETUA BAHAGIAN TIDAK BERNILAI?

Image result for calon BN Sg Besar

Bukanlah amalan biasa bagi UMNO memilih seseorang yang sudah menjadi Adun bertanding di kerusi Parlimen, apatah lagi jika Ketua Bahagiannya tidak pernah bertanding sebelum ini.

Tetapi ia berlaku di Sungai Besar. UMNO meletakkan Adun Sungai Panjang, Budiman Mohd Zuhdi untuk bertanding dalam pilihanraya kecil Parlimen Sungai Besar pada 18 Jun nanti, dalam masa yang sama mengenepikan Jamal Mohd Yunus, Ketua UMNO Bahagian yang masih muda dan tidak pernah bertanding di mana-mana kerusi sebelum ini.

Apakah Jamal tidak layak dan kedudukan Ketua Bahagian yang disandangnya tidak bernilai satu sen pun untuk dipertimbangkan sebagai calon?

Kalau pun bukan Jamal, tiadakah pemimpin lain di kalangan pimpinan UMNO Bahagian yang turut layak untuk diketengahkan, sehingga Budiman yang sudah pun menjadi Adun dipilih lagi bertanding untuk bergelar Ahli Parlimen pula?

Apakah UMNO sudah begitu ketandusan pemimpin? 

Jika dalam beberapa pilihanraya kecil sebelum ini, calon tempatan bukan daripada kalangan pemegang jawatan utama dalam UMNO boleh diketengahkan, kenapa formula yang sama tidak digunakan, kalau pun tidak mahu memilih Jamal atau pimpinan UMNO yang lain sebagai calon?

Dalam masa yang sama, apakah kelebihan yang rakyat atau pengundi perolehi dengan menjadikan seorang Adun sebagai Ahli Parlimen dalam waktu yang sama?

Bukankah jika orang lain yang dipilih oleh UMNO sebagai calon dan kemudian menang, bermakna pengundi Sungai Besar akan mendapat dua wakil rakyat yang berbeza dan ini lebih memberi manfaat kepada rakyat?

Tetapi, berbanding jika Budiman yang menang, rakyat tidak mendapat apa-apa kelebihan, melainkan hanya Budiman yang akan bergelar Adun dan Ahli Parlimen secara serentak.

Tulisan ini tidak sama sekali mempertikaikan kelayakan atau kemampuan Budiman. Beliau adalah rakan lama saya dan saya telah mengenalinya berbelas tahun yang lalu ketika beliau masih berkhidmat dengan Telekom Malaysia lagi.

Ketika itu beliau belum begitu aktif dalam UMNO Sungai Besar, tetapi Budiman selalu bercakap tentang cita-citanya dalam dunia politik, malah turut menyebut tentang pilihan lain jika gagal menyerlahkan bakatnya.

Beliau memang seorang yang baik, banyak idea, ada visi dan setelah bergelar wakil rakyat, selalu menampakkan dirinya turun padang serta membiasakan kedudukannya tidak berbeza dengan rakyat biasa.

Alhamdulillah, beliau kini adalah Naib Ketua UMNO Bahagian Sungai Besar dan Adun Sungai Panjang. Sekarang dipilih pula untuk bertanding di kerusi Parlimen Sungai Besar.

Namun, tulisan ini ialah mengenai wajah UMNO di mata rakyat, harga diri seseorang yang berjawatan Ketua Bahagian serta kebarangkalian wujudnya elemen sabotaj oleh pemimpin parti sendiri terhadap beliau.

Di mata rakyat, UMNO seolah-olah tandus pemimpin dan rakyat akan melihat tidak ada kelebihannya bila seorang Adun dibebankan lagi dengan tugas sebagai Ahli Parlimen. 

Jika wujud eleman sabotaj, bersekali dengan sentimen anti Najib yang sedang marak berikutan skandal kewangan melibatkan dirinya, Budiman akan menjadi mangsa yang mungkin membunuh terus masa depannya dalam politik.

Ia juga memperlihatkan kedudukan Jamal sebagai Ketua Bahagian tiada nilai di mata pucuk pimpinan UMNO sedangkan beliau melakukan banyak usaha di peringkat nasional untuk membela dan mempertahankan Najib.

Kesian Jamal...

Jika pengundi inginkan seorang wakil rakyat lain yang mewakili kerajaan negeri pula untuk membela dan membolehkan mereka menumpang lebih banyak kasih,  calon Pakatan Harapan ada kelebihan untuk menang di Sungai Besar.

Ini kerana calon Pas juga seorang Adun iaitu Dr Rani daripada Meru, Kelang. Berbanding Budiman yang merupakan Adun dalam Sungai Besar, Dr Rani sebaliknya adalah orang luar.

Dengan sama-sama meletakkan Adun sebagai calon di Sungai Besar, tetapi merupakan orang luar, Pas ternyata secara halus sedang memberi kelebihan kepada UMNO yang mencalonkan Adun tempatan untuk memenangi kerusi tersebut sebagai balasan kerana memberi laluan kepada usul berkaitan hudud oleh Hadi Awang di Parlimen, Khamis lalu.

Kenapa Pas tidak meletakkan calon profesional atau ulama tempatan sendiri jika benar ingin memenangi kerusi Sungai Besar?

Mengapa seseorang daripada luar yang sudah bergelar wakil rakyat dan YB mahu dijadikan wakil rakyat dan YB sekali lagi?

Lantaran itu, jika Pakatan Harapan yang mewakili PKR, DAP dan Amanah meletakkan calon yang betul dan bukan daripada kalangan wakil rakyat juga, kelebihan akan memihak kepada mereka di Sungai Besar ini.

Dengan memilih calon Pakatan Harapan, ia bukan saja mewakili rakyat yang mahu memberi mesej penolakan terhadap Najib sebagaimana yang disebut oleh Tun Mahathir Mohamad, malah pengundi juga akan mendapat tambahan wakil rakyat baru yang mewakili kerajaan negeri pula. (SH).

Timbalan Speaker Dun Kedah Nafikan Dakwaan Kononnya Dia Tumbuk Orang Depan Aman Central



Sejak semalam viral di laman sosial seorang lelaki mendakwa dia dan teman wanitanya telah ditumbuk oleh seorang VIP iaitu Timbalan Speaker Dun Kedah, Datuk Azmi Che Husain di hadapan pusat membeli belah di Alor Star 15 Mei lalu.

Rakaman berdurasi 33 saat itu menunjukkan berlaku pergelutan seorang lelai bersama tiga individu lain di mana dakwa lelaki berkenaan Azmi merupakan salah seorang lelaki tersebut.

Kerana dakwaan itu, Azmi telah tampil membuat kenyataan di mana katanya beliau hanya cuba meleraikan keadaan di mana Azmi mendakwa pemuda berkenaan seolah-olah melakukan provokasi dan kemudiannya bertindak memaki hamun anaknya.

“Saya cuba leraikan pergaduhan berkenaan, tetapi saya pula yang dituduh.”

“Saya ketika itu dalam kereta dengan dua lagi anak lelaki. Bila kejadian macam tu berlaku, saya turun kereta dan tanya kenapa dia buat begitu kepada anak saya.

“Namun bila disoal, dia bertindak memaki hamun saya. Salam yang diberi sebelum itu pun tidak dijawabnya,” katanya kepada Sinar Harian, semalam.

Menurut Adun Bayu berkenaan, lelaki itu kemudiannya bertindak agresif apabila keluar dari kereta dan menendangnya hingga terjatuh.

“Dua anak yang ketika itu berada dalam kereta keluar untuk mempertahankan saya dari terus dipukul. Siapa yang sanggup tengok ayah mereka dipukul depan mata.

“Jadi berlaku pergelutan antara mereka bertiga, saya yang berada di situ cuba meleraikan pergaduhan, tetapi saya ditumbuk oleh lelaki itu,”katanya.

Beliu turut mendakwa lelaki berkenaan cuba memutar belit fakta kejadian sebenarn apabila menuduh beliau dan anak-anaknya menumbuk teman wanitanya di bahagian dada, tangan kanan dan kiri.

"Kejadian itu langsung tidak berlaku seperti didakwa, sebaliknya wanita itu mengalami kecederaan apabila ditolak masuk ke dalam kereta oleh pemuda tersebut sendiri."

“Saya dan anak-anak langsung tidak sentuh wanita itu, tetapi bila dia keluar dari kereta untuk leraikan pergelutan, dia pula yang ditarik dan ditolak masuk ke dalam kereta oleh lelaki berkenaan.

“Jika ada pihak yang masih ragu-ragu dengan tuduhan ini, sila berikan bukti segera bahawa wanita itu benar-benar ditumbuk,” katanya.

Azmi dalam pada itu mendakwa insiden yang merupakan salah faham ini sengaja diviralkan oleh pihak yang mempunyai agenda dan perancangan pihak tertentu bagi mencalarkan imej politiknya.

Selain itu, beliau turut mengakui mengenali individu berkenaan yang cuba memburuk-burukkan imejnya dengan merancang insiden berkenaan.

“Kejadian itu berlaku siap dengan rakaman dari kamera, seperti ada sesuatu yang tidak kena.

“ALLAH akan bersama orang yang benar, saya yakin dengan janji-NYA,”katanya.

Bagaimanapun katanya, kes berkenaan diserahkan kepada pihak polis untuk siasatan selanjutnya.

“Saya juga akan membuat laporan polis selepas difitnah, sebelum ini kes ini tidak dilaporkan kerana saya hanya meleraikan keadaan,” katanya.

Ketua Polis Daerah Kota Setar, Asisten Komisioner Mohd Rozi Jidin berkata, semasa membuat laporan polis ketika hari kejadian pengadu dikatakan tidak mengenali Adun itu sehingga kes tersebut menjadi viral dalam laman sosial.

Mohd Rozi berkata kes tersebut disiasat mengikut Seksyen 323 Kanun Keseksaan. - Siakapkeli.my

More Noose From Singapore : Singapore Fears For Safety Of Yeo Jiawei as well




   
SYED,  Before I post how serious Singapore is, they are not even waiting til June 1st, the very next day, High Court decided  and that's that, Yeo Jiawei's world is crashing down.

Being prosecuted in a rush for a couple of charges, such that for the rest of the charges he will already be in jail. Scumbag will sing.

A carefully hatched plan to keep him off the twitter with Fatboys 1 and 2 and their henchmen.

And safe from C4 and concrete, poor NIK and Subboh,  Casey Tang,  Jasmine Loo Ai Swan are on the run.

[SINGAPORE] A former wealth manager of troubled Swiss private bank BSI was denied bail by the Singapore High Court on Friday and will await his trial in prison for two of the nine charges that are part of the city-state's investigations into money laundering. The case is related to illicit money transfers linked to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), which is being investigated by at least six jurisdictions. Judge Chan Seng Onn said prosecution and defense should try to expedite the trial.

Asean at a crossroads - why we need to talk about girls’ rights

COMMENT Asia is a restless continent. Its economies have grown and transformed at a giddying pace, reshaping the social and physical landscape in ways that could barely have been imagined only three decades ago. The Asean countries in particular are experiencing a period of dramatic change, collectively becoming the world’s seventh-largest economy by 2011.
Now, as their economies integrate further, bringing the certainty of further growth and social change, it seems timely to ask what sort of region will emerge from the next phase of transformation.
In many ways this will remain a conversation about economics, but for me the social and economic position of girls lies at the heart of how the region secures a prosperous and stable future for itself. The language of girls’ rights might seem out of place here, but enabling girls to learn, lead, decide and thrive will be critical to Asean’s continuing success.
Big opportunities, greater challenges
Economic growth and its concomitant social dynamism has created enormous opportunities, not least for women and girls. Across Asia, greater female participation has gone hand in hand with economic transformation.
We know that when more women work, economies grow. Yet in Asia, this potential is not yet fully realised: it is estimated that the region as a whole loses US$40 billion each year as a result of gender gaps in education and employment, with women 70 percent less likely than men to be in employment.  
The Asean countries, like the rest of the world, are facing massive challenges - migration is surging and climate change threatens to disrupt economies and communities. And the region needs to find ways to lock in its economic progress, not least by spreading its benefits more widely and laying the foundations of prosperity in the long term.
The challenges cannot be addressed in the same old ways. We’re at a crossroads - we need to work differently, forging new partnerships, new conversations and new collaborations.
A new way of doing things
Improving the position of women and girls will be pivotal to overcoming the skills gaps within the Asean workforce, translating simple inclusion into meaningful participation that lasts. Women’s employment is still centred on agricultural and lower-skilled jobs, with higher-value work taken by men. Girls are often able to access primary education at rates comparable with boys, but at secondary school level their participation drops off rapidly.
There is a clear convergence of interest here between businesses, government, and civil society, and that creates the conditions for new ways of working. Plan International increasingly recognises businesses as much more than a funding partner, working with them strategically around their core business, leveraging their expertise, innovation and technological know-how.
We’ve been at the forefront of developing new models of collaboration through programmes like the Reach Programme in Vietnam. In partnership with Accenture and others, Reach offers training to marginalised young people, as well as direct placement into jobs. The programme allows companies to invest in communities, while also developing the talent they need.
In Thailand, we are working collaboratively with the Kesko Corporation in Finland to strengthen the supply chain in the fishing industry and by doing so improving the rights of migrant children.
Other forms of collaboration are being developed. The Saksham Centre in Delhi delivers vocational skills and training to young people, targeting those living in the city’s slums. The programme works with companies like McDonald's and Costa Coffee to build training courses that match the skills needed for entry-level staff within those firms.
In addition, the centre adds broader life skills, including family planning, to the mix. Recognising that fears about personal safety creates barriers for young women, the centre has extended its remit to provide secure routes.
There is a growing appetite on the part of business and civil society to collaborate beyond immediate concerns around employment, education and skills. Forward-looking businesses, smart governments and innovative civil society organisations all want to see women and girls enjoying the same rights and opportunities as their male counterparts. But to achieve that, we need to involve businesses in change beyond the workplace and the classroom.
Creating the spaces within which girls can thrive
The threat of violence and harassment represents a real barrier to social, civic and economic participation. Our research shows that girls often feel unsafe on the street and on public transport, but also that institutions let them down.
In Hanoi, up to 36 percent of girls did not feel that they can rely on the emergency services such as the police, while in Delhi 96 percent told us that they did not feel safe in public spaces. Seventeen year old Meera was one of them, having to endure constant harassment on her way to school.
Inspired by an event on girl friendly public spaces, Meera got involved in our Safer Cities initiative. Now she is making the case directly to local decision makers and street lights and closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras have been installed, security guards watch over the areas around local schools, and local leaders are taking steps to improve safety for girls in Meera’s neighbourhood.
She encouraged her father, a rickshaw driver, to get involved and he now advises other drivers on the safety of female passengers; shopkeepers have joined in, displaying an official sign to indicate that their shop is a safe space for a girl to slip into while walking home during a darkening evening: businesses collaborating freely to make the city more accessible to girls.
Who do we want to be?
Asia is changing, reshaping itself economically, socially and physically. Many cities are growing outwards and upwards, their fabric being renewed at a startling rate and new residents pouring in from their hinterlands and further afield. The restructuring of the region’s economy, from agriculture and primary industries to manufacturing and services, from assembly to design, is creating new social structures. Economic growth is creating opportunities, but also challenges.
Growing economies need the talents of all their members. Improving rates of participation for girls in education and employment will be essential to the development of prosperous and stable societies: growth that does not foster an inclusive society is short-term growth. But improving the position of girls is also the right thing to do. At a time of rapid change, we have to ask ourselves: who do we want to be?

Ducking that question does not make it go away. Change will happen, and it will be shaped by the choices we make. The alternative is not stasis, but to watch the progress of recent years slip away. Making the right choices for the future development of Asean countries will require an active partnership between civil society, business and government.
At Plan International, we’ve already started the process, working with some of the biggest players in the region and beyond. The challenge now is to scale up our efforts and to draw everyone into the conversation.

ANNE-BIRGITTE ALBRECTSEN is the CEO of Plan International. She will participate in the World Economic Forum on Asean in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia June 1-2. -Mkini

In putting OSA above Good Star, Najib skews moral compass

Image result for najib and 1MDB

MP SPEAKS The Prime Minister Najib Razak himself announced after the UMNO Supreme Council meeting yesterday, that the new Bank Negara governor Datuk Muhammad Ibrahim had lodged a police report against The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) under the Official Secrets Act (OSA) for revealing a letter purportedly from Bank Negara to Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairperson Hasan Ariffin.
Najib did not explain whether the Bank Negara Governor had lodged the police report against WSJ on his instructions, but it would be very sad day in the history of Bank Negara Malaysia indeed if the greatest concern of the new BNM Governor is not the global investigation and crackdown on 1MDB money-laundering and corruption allegations, but whether WSJ had committed an offence under the OSA.
He has lost the moral compass to be premier when he is not concerned whether Good Star Limited was the genesis of the RM55 billion 1MDB global financial scandal and fraud against Malaysia and 30 million Malaysians, but only whether WSJ had committed an OSA offence in revealing Good Star Limited was in fact owned by Penang billionaire Jho Low.
I was shocked a few days ago when Malaysia  gained new international notoriety and the 1MDB financial scandal was described by a leading world news agency, Bloomberg, as one of the “world’s biggest financial scandals”.
I have been a Member of Parliament since 1969, but I have never felt so ashamed as a Malaysian when I read of such a  Bloomberg reference four days ago mentioning Malaysia in the same breath as “the world’s biggest financial scandals”.
Where should Malaysians hide their faces?
Shouldn’t Najib, the Cabinet and Parliament be mortally ashamed and humiliated for the country to be referred in such a derogatory and contemptible manner, because we have allowed the 1MDB scandal to mushroom in a matter of six years to become one of the “world’s biggest financial scandals”?
What is worse, at least six countries are investigating money laundering and corruption allegations connected with 1MDB, with the Singapore and Swiss authorities already launching a crackdown against institutions and individuals implicated with 1MDB.
Yesterday, for instance, the former wealth manager of troubled Swiss private bank BSI was denied bail by the Singapore High Court and will await his trial in prison for two of the nine charges that are part of the city-state’s investigations into money laundering related to illicit money transfers linked to 1MDB.
The Malaysian government and the Malaysian regulatory authorities, in particular Bank Negara Malaysia, are however blissfully ignorant or unconcerned about the chips about the 1MDB global scandal  falling into place as a result of such foreign investigations and crackdowns.
Is Malaysia an integral part of the global society of finance and instant information or have we walled ourselves into a “hermit state” which could ignore international perceptions, opinions and expectations?
The Good Star Limited is a test case whether Malaysia is prepared to be a responsible member of the global community or trying to be a “hermit state” to cut off the country from the international flow of events.
The question whether WSJ has committed an offence under the  OSA in revealing a Bank Negara Malaysia  letter  to the PAC Chairman confirming that Good Star Limited was owned by tycoon Low Taek Jho, better known as Jho Low must not be allowed to overshadow an even greater public interest issue.
The issue being that the government had lied to Malaysians when it continued to pretend that Good Star Ltd, which has since been dissolved, belonged to former 1MDB joint-venture partner PetroSaudi International when in fact it belonged to Jho Low.
The status of Good Star's ownership is important because it will determine whether 1MDB's funds had been siphoned away or that it was indeed used for investment.
1MDB had sent US$1.83 billion abroad for its joint-venture activities with PetroSaudi but US$1.03 billion of this sum was diverted to Good Star.

The diversion would not be an issue if Good Star was owned by 1MDB's joint-venture partner PetroSaudi, as claimed by the government, but would raise serious concerns if it is owned by individuals or entities unrelated to the joint-venture - in this case, Jho Low, as claimed by WSJ.
If the WSJ revelation is true, that Bank Negara had confirmed that US$1.03 billion (RM4.06 billion) in 1MDB funds had been transferred to an offshore company owned by a close associate of Najib, Jho Low, it would have tallied with the money-laundering and corruption investigations and crackdowns launched by six countries on 1MDB, and why 1MDB had catapulted Malaysia into the  stratosphere of  corrupt global nations with one of the “world’s biggest financial scandals”.
In these circumstances, Malaysians are entitled to demand a reset of national priorities and that the Najib Government should give top priority to render full and satisfactory accountability and responsibility for the 1MDB scandal over all other concerns, including whether WSJ has committed an offence under the OSA. -Mkini

Hadi: MCA, MIC know more about 'Hudud Bill' than DAP


PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang said that BN components MCA And MIC appear to have a better understanding of his Private Member's Bill that was tabled in the Dewan Rakyat last Thursday, than the Islamic party's former ally DAP.
This he lamented, was despite discussions between the two parties about the matter since 1993, till recently, when they were still together in the now defunct Pakatan Rakyat opposition pact.
"Actually we have held dialogues with the DAP since 1993.
"By right non-Muslims should not have interfered in this issue (hudud). I see that the MIC and MCA appears to understand better but DAP does no understand," said Hadi, expressing disappointment.
Both MCA and MIC however, as well other BN component parties, have held a joint press conference objecting to the Bill yesterday.
MCA president Liow Tong Lai had rallied support to voice out objection against Umno's "cooperation" in allowing the amendments to be tabled.
Though Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak yesterday attributed the objections to a "big misunderstanding" which had been resolved after he explained it to BN components, who he claimed accepted his word on it.
The Marang MP also reiterated  that the private bill which he had tabled, but later postponed for debate, was not a new 'hudud bill' but rather amendments to allow the Syariah Court to impose higher sentences for offences under its jurisdiction.
Specifically, the Bill was to amend Act 355 on the criminal jurisdiction of the Syariah Court.
It is commonly referred to as the "Hudud Bill" as it would ultimately pave way for the partial implementation of the Islamic penal code in PAS-ruled Kelantan.
The state had already passed an enactment to implement hudud but is constrained by the limitations that Act 355 impose on the punishments that can be meted out by the Syariah Courts.
Hadi, meanwhile, also claimed that even PAS-splinter Parti Amanah Negara appears to not have understood the issue.
"This is not a political game. This is a religious responsibility," Hadi told reporters at a press conference last night after he announced Meru assemblyperson Dr Abdul Rani Osman as PAS' candidate for the Sungai Besar by-election.
Hadi said this when asked whether PAS will be using the hudud issue as part of its by-election campaign.
Thursday was the last day of the Dewan Rakyat sitting for this session and Hadi's Bill was initially listed as the last item on the order paper, but it was pushed up by the Government.
Commenting further, Hadi claimed that DAP’S objections against his Bill was because it has a purported agenda to taint the image of Islam.

'No problem fielding outsider as candidate'
On the party's candidate for Sungai Besar, Hadi said it is not a problem for Rani to be an outsider, as other parties had also done the same in the past.
"(Penang chief minister) Lim Guan Eng contested in Penang and he is not from Penang. That is not an issue," he said.
The Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar by-elections were triggered by the  deaths of its incumbents in the Sarawak helicopter tragedy.
Nominations day has been set for June 5 while polling is on June 18. -Mkini

Abim: Discuss Hudud Bill in depth with all, including non-Muslims


There needs to be more in-depth discussions of the 'Hudud Bill' brought forth by PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang, said Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia (Abim), and this includes non-Muslims.
“Abim calls for this motion to be discussed and debated in a thorough and open manner during the next Parliament proceedings,” Abim president Mohamad Raimi Ab Rahim.
There also needs to be a genuine discussion of this issue with various stakeholders such as political parties and civil society, including those who are non-Muslims, he added.
Islam belongs to all Muslims, he said, and not exclusively to certain parties with their own political agenda that changes seasonally.
This hudud issue will have a great effect in Malaysia, across all religions and races, he explained, as the legal processes and technical details are still kept under wraps and have not been explained properly.
“Hence, Abim stresses that the wish to implement this Islamic law has to be in line with the principle of maqasid al shari’ah by making sure it achieves what it was truly meant for, which is to ensure justice for the people,” he said.
'Don't politicise hudud'
He reminded that the debates and discussions are important because if this issue is not handled seriously and is brought up occasionally based on the interests of political parties, it would be easy for people to react negatively and have a bad impression of Islam in general.
The bill is officially named the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) (Amendment) Bill 2016.

It has been popularly referred to as the 'Hudud Bill' as it would ultimately pave the way for the partial implementation of the Islamic penal code, specifically in PAS-ruled Kelantan, which had already passed an enactment to that effect.
However, the Kelantan state's enactment cannot be implemented as long as restrictions exist in federal law that limit syariah court sentencing powers.
Hadi’s bill seeks to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 or Act 355, which limits the syariah courts’ punishments to a maximum fine of RM5,000, three years' jail or six strokes of the rotan.- Mkini
