Baharudin's Death: Broken Ribs and Tooth Due to CPR Said the Police

Friday, 22nd July 2011

Anyone ever heard that CPR could break the victim ribs or tooth? Not to me. But the Federal Public Order and Internal Security Department director Salleh Mat Rashid claimed that late Badruddin broken ribs and tooth were caused by the  CPR performed on him whereas the broken tooth could be caused by the tube inserted into his mouth...WHAT A JOKE. Cannot imagine such stupid hypothesis came from someone at senior position like him.

Its Time for Retirement!

Police has denied using brutal tactics on the only fatality of the July 9 rally, Baharudin Ahmad, saying the family's claims of fractured ribs could have been due to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) applied on him.

Federal Public Order and Internal Security Department director Salleh Mat Rashid (left) also denied 59-year-old Baharudin's broken tooth was the result of police abuse.

"I have been informed of the claims of three fractured ribs and a broken tooth. A medical specialist suggests that the ribs could have been fractured as a result of CPR.

"As for the broken tooth, it could be due to the tubes being inserted into his mouth as medical officers tried to resuscitate him," he told a packed police conference yesterday.

Family members had submitted a memorandum to Suhakam with a copy to inspector-general of police Ismail Omar, claiming Baharudin had three fractured ribs and a broken tooth.

Police deny resorting to violence

Salleh said initial post mortem report revealed that Baharudin died as a result of a heart attack. Initial reports, he said had shown no bruises or cuts on the Baharudin.

However, he admitted that it was still inconclusive as police are waiting for laboratory analysis.

The top cop denied that police had assaulted Baharudin.

Salleh also showed images recorded via CCTV at Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) and Avenue K, located across the KLCC to show Baharudin had lifted his left hand touching his chest as he walked, suggesting he may have suffered cardiac arrest.

It also showed people rushing into Avenue K and using a diagram, Salleh pointed at LRT station entrance shutters starting to close.

"I can confirm that no tear gas was fired within the KLCC vicinity. So the claims that the tear gas fumes could have resulted in his death as claimed by certain quarter are also baseless," he said.

"Police investigations also showed the claims that ambulance arrived one hour later, were also wrong as records show they arrived at the scene 17 minutes after the call."

French Lawyer Detention:Police and Immigration Department Have Been Used To Protect Najib

Friday, 22nd July 2011

This country is in a mess. Taib has frequently used the Immigration Department to protect his political survival from his political rivals from Semenanjung. Any politicians from Semenanjung against him will be stopped at KLIA and deported to Semenanjung. But this is not only happen in Sarawak. In Kuala Lumpur International Airport, French Lawyer William Bourdon and his wife who work for SUHAKAM have been detained. WB was on his way to Malaysia to expose corruption practice in the purchased of French Sub-marine the Scorpene which many believed involving Najib Alantuya.

William Bourdon will be deported tonight after being detained for more than four hours by immigration and police officials at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
Bourdon has been served the deportation order and he will be leaving Kuala Lumpur at 11.30pm along with his wife Lea Forestier to Paris.
Bourdon, in a brief statement, said that the Malaysian police had ordered him to leave the country as soon as possible.
He said when he explained that his return ticket to Paris was only on Sunday, he was told that he would be detained until then.
“We have decided to find the earliest return flight possible at our own costs. I don’t understand this decision as no explanation has been given to me so far,” he added in his hand-written note (photo, below).
“I hereby declare that I have acted as the lawyer for Suaram in full respect of my duties and rules and in perfect compliance with national and international laws.
“I consider that this deportation decision is a breach in the right to freely exercise my profession as a lawyer,” he said.
Bourdon had arrived here from Penang, where he spoke at an event organised by rights group Suaram regarding the controversial Scorpene submarine deal. He was scheduled to give another speech tonight in Petaling Jaya on the submarine scandal, followed by another in Ipoh tomorrow.
But when his Malaysia Airlines flight landed at 11.40am, three immigration officials came on board to escort him off the aircraft. Bourdon was taken to the holding centre where he was questioned for four hours.
Suaram executive director, Cynthia Gabriel, who is at the KLIA, told FMT that she managed to speak to Bourdon and that he was being held in the Immigration Enforcement Division.
“The officials asked him to sign deportation papers in Bahasa Malaysia and of course he refused,” she said. “The French Embassy officials are currently in negotiations with the immigration officials. But the Bourdons are definitely going back to France tonight.”

Meanwhile Fadiah Nadwa Fikri from Lawyers for Liberty (LFL) said that Forestier was released earlier and that she was on her way to the division where Bourdon is being held.
“He has been denied access to lawyers which is ridiculously absurd. And none of the officials have issued any statement on the grounds for his detention.”
According to Fadiah, Forestier was “very shocked and upset over the arbitrariness of situation.”
“Only other experience of William and I denied entry was Tunisia under BenAli… there was a banana republic!,” Forestier was reported to have said, according to tweets from local activists.
The authorities also failed to acknowledge the fact that Bourdon was Suaram’s lawyer on the submarine case and that his deporation would be a breach of his right to perform his duty as a lawyer.
Subang MP Sivarasa Rasiah, and Batu MP Tian Chua, are also at KLIA but their attempts to meet with Bourdon have been denied.
The submarine deal
In June 2002, the Malaysian government signed an agreement with French DCNS and Spainish Navantia for the procurement of two Scorpene class submarines.
The procurement contract was through direct negotiation with the manufacturing companies, said to be with the service of Perimekar Sdn Bhd, linked to academic Abdul Razak Baginda.
The Scorpene issue had been mired in controversy with allegations of kickbacks and linked to the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Razak, a close aide of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, was charged with abetting the murder but was later acquitted.
The controversy had even forced Najib to swear on the Quran to clear his name.
The French authorities are currently probing the deal.
In December 2009, Suaram filed a complaint with the French courts asking for access to information regarding government contracts signed with Perimekar and other information classified as official secrets in Malaysia.
In April 2010, the French courts accepted the request to investigate the claim of corruption for a payment amounting to 114 million euros from DCNS to Perimekar.

Nampak Lebih Aleesha Daripada Ashraf Tapi Undang-Undang Memang Kejam

Thursday, 22nd July 2011

Sebagai lelaki tulen, daraipada gambar yang dipaparkan di bawah tidak was-was lagi memang gambar tersebut menunjukkan perwatakan seorang wanita yang tulin. Tetapi undang-undang tidak mengenal fizikal seseorang apabila membuat keputusan. Itulah yang berlaku kepada Aleesha apabila undang-undang membuat keputusan dan menidakkan kehendaknya. Dalam hal ini adakah undang-undang yang kejam atau menusia yang mentafsirkan undang-undang yang harus disalahkan? Bagi saya, saya amat bersimpati dengan nasib beliau dan berharap agar beliau bersabar serta tabah menempuh dugaan hidup..www.Bukittunggal.Com

Siapa yang lebih...Ashraf ke atau Aleesha?

Mohd Ashraf Hafiz Abdul Aziz, 25, yang gagal menukar nama dan status jantina dalam MyKad kepada Aleesha Farhana selepas ditolak Mahkamah Tinggi di sini kelmarin, mengakui tertekan dengan pandangan negatif masyarakat terhadapnya, tetapi tidak akan patah semangat untuk terus memperjuangkan hasratnya itu.
Sambil menyatakan mahu membuat rayuan terhadap keputusan mahkamah itu, dalam sebak, Mohd Ashraf yang lebih mesra dipanggil Aleesha berkata, jika masyarakat tidak dapat menerima keadaannya berdasarkan pelbagai kutukan dan hinaan yang diterima termasuk menerusi laman sosial Facebook, beliau rela dibunuh jika itu penyelesaian terbaik.
“Suka atau tidak, perjuangan perlu diteruskan sehingga semua wadah perundangan tiada lagi. Ramai mahu saya berdiam diri daripada masalah ini, tetapi saya mahu kehidupan yang aman,” katanya dalam satu pertemuan di sini, semalam sambil ditemani ibu bapanya.
Mohd Ashraf membuat permohonan menukar jantina di Mahkamah Tinggi pada 25 Mei lalu bagi memudahkannya diterima masuk ke universiti tempatan untuk menyambung pelajaran, selain kesukarannya menjalani kehidupan sebagai seorang wanita dengan status lelakinya.
Menceritakan punca permohonannya ditolak, beliau mengakui tidak mendapat bantuan perundangan yang kukuh ketika mengemukakan permohonan, malah ketika peguam Horley Isaacs menawarkan diri membantu, pendengaran kes itu sudah sampai penghujungnya.
Berkongsi kesedihan ditanggung anaknya itu, ibu Mohd Ashraf yang mahu dikenali sebagai Mak Yah, 50, berkata masyarakat mudah melemparkan cacian kepada keluarganya tanpa memahami perasaan mereka.
Mak Yah dari Kampung Telaga Daing di sini, berkata sejak kes anaknya dilaporkan media, beliau dan suami, Abdul Aziz, 60, mendapat kritikan dan cemuhan masyarakat yang melabelkan mereka ibu bapa tidak bertanggungjawab.
“Hinaan itu sangat pedih, seolah-olah kami membelakangkan Allah dengan menyokong keputusan Mohd Ashraf membuat pembedahan menukar jantina,” katanya sambil mengesat air mata dengan kain tudungnya.
Mak Yah berkata, walaupun ciri kewanitaan Mohd Ashraf dikesan sejak bayi, mereka tetap terkejut apabila mengetahui anak lelaki sulungnya itu membuat pembedahan menukar jantina di Hatyai, Thailand pada 2009.
“Ketika pembedahan itu, kami menunaikan haji di Makkah. Dia tidak pernah memberitahu ujian perubatan dan penilaian paras hormon yang dibuatnya di Pusat Perubatan Pantai, Kuala Lumpur dua tahun sebelum itu.
“Disebabkan marah dan sedih dengan perbuatannya itu, kami menghalaunya dari rumah dan membakar semua baju perempuan, tetapi kami tahu dia yang bertukar menjadi perempuan selalu pulang ke rumah dan hanya tidur dalam kereta,” katanya.
Sementara itu, Abdul Aziz yang juga bekas anggota tentera berkata, beliau selalu menekankan aspek disiplin kepada anaknya, tetapi buntu mencari jawapan masalah dihadapi Mohd Ashraf.
“Akhirnya, kami sekeluarga menerima hakikat dialami Mohd Ashraf dan tidak lagi hidup dalam penafian, tetapi kami disisihkan masyarakat.
“Mungkin masalah itu tidak serumit sekarang jika dari awal kami mendapatkan pandangan pakar berhubung keadaan Mohd Ashraf.
“Jika cara didikan dikatakan punca dia begini, kenapa dua anak angkat kami dan dua adik kandungnya tidak sedemikian,” katanya kepada pemberita.
