Calon BN di Permatang Pasir penyeleweng wang amanah

Posted on August 17, 2009



Addendum : Commentator Tennou Heika felt my proposed sms was not quite good enough.

He commented that it might be perceived by recipients as mere propaganda as it did not contain enough factual detail.

He’s right.

Thankfully, he sent in a proposed sms which, I think, does the trick. Let’s use this, people.

“Calon BN di P. Pasir penyeleweng wang amanah. Seleweng RM140K dari Kop. Pekebun Getah. Langgar undang-undang bawah Seksyen 103D. Tolak calon BN yang tidak beramanah”.


Some of you have, in your comments, asked what precisely was the misconduct for which the UMNO candidate was struck of the rolls of the Malaysian Bar.

A commentator has drawn my attention to a report in The Edge which quotes Bar Council President Ragunath as saying that “the offence committed by Rohaizat involved stakeholders’ money from Koperasi Pekebun Getah and there was no account for it. When the board looked into this matter and the order was made, there was no reimbursement to the stakeholders involving the sum of RM140,000. Even if you pay, the offence has been committed and it is a serious offence as this involves dealing with client’s money. If you are an innocent party, you would not be found guilty by the disciplinary committee and the charge leveled under Section 103D is tantamount to criminal misconduct”.

There you have it.

BN’s candidate’s act of misconduct involved stakeholder funds, which is money held on trust, and that misconduct is tantamount to criminal conduct.

sms campaign to warn the voters of Permatang Pasir?

sms campaign to launch the rakyat’s effort to return the state constituency seat of Permatang Pasir to Pakatan Rakyat?

How about :

“Calon BN di P. Pasir penyeleweng wang amanah. Padi harapkan pagar, pagar makan padi. Tolak calon BN yang tidak beramanah”.

Send this out to all your friends and request them to send the same to anyone they know who hails from Penang.
