Inculcate culture of integrity in education realm

The unexpected Cabinet reshuffle on July 28 took many Malaysians by surprise, particularly those in the education fraternity, when Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was replaced. This was a prime example of politics interfering with education. Muhyiddin had made much progress for education, although the outcomes were still much to be desired, and a new pathway had been laid out to uphold the national language as well as to strengthen English in the Second Wave (2017-2020) of the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025 (MEB). While the new Minister of Education Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid vowed to carry on with the implementation — and to fine-tune — th

Adeeba: Drug addicts fare better at C&C clinics

KUALA LUMPUR: Drug addicts who volunteer for rehabilitation programmes at Cure & Care (C&C) clinics are not likely to suffer a relapse within a week unlike those sent to Pusat Serenti, says Universiti Malaya’s Faculty of Medicine dean Prof Dr Adeeba Kamarulzaman. She said C&C clinics which allow drug users to seek treatment without being detained or prosecuted have demonstrated that 50% who attend the programmes don’t suffer a relapse in a year, while the other half are able to return to become useful members of society. She added that half of those sent for the two-year mandatory programmes at drug rehabilitation detention centres or Pusat Serenti suffer relapse in less than a week. The res

'One must consider the spirit of the law'

AFTER 42 years as a judge and an officer in Malaysia’s Judicial and Legal Service (JLS), Datuk Mohd Hishamudin Yunus, 66, is now a consultant with a legal firm and intends to venture into the world of commercial arbitration. He grew up in the small railway town of Gemas, Negri Sembilan, which had a circuit magistrate’s court. Mohd Hishamudin’s late grandfather was a magistrate in Seremban and the young boy would go watch him when he came on circuit. Upon completing Sixth Form at Malay College Kuala Kangsar in 1968, Mohd Hishamudin applied for a Federal Judicial Scholarship the next year to study law. He got it and went to London, since Malaysia did not have a law faculty at the time. He e

Political funding reforms needed for fair elections

We, concerned citizens of Malaysia from the following NGOs and CSOs, recognise the urgent need for reforms of existing laws governing political funding and all manner of corrupt practices. Eliminating corruption within political parties is fundamental to enable the total rejection of corrupt practices and to allow for the return of a clean government in Malaysia. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has acknowledged the existence of “donations” from foreign sources to run election campaigns effectively. Our concern with the Prime Minister’s statement is his acknowledgement of two issues that have long been viewed as controversial aspects of the financing of Malaysian politics: First, the ex

Declaration on Transparent and Accountable Political Funding as the Underlying Framework to Eliminat

Summary for Press Conference on 10/9/15, 2pm at Lake Club Context of Statement: The Problem & Our Concerns 1. Prime Minister Najib Razak has acknowledged the existence of donations from foreign sources to run elections. His statement confirms two issues that have long been viewed as controversial aspects of the financing of Malaysian politics: > existence of secret political funds controlled by individuals or trustees; > access to phenomenal foreign funding, suggesting illegal political financing during elections that undermine the legitimacy of parties. 2. Our core concern is the need for an independent investigation into allegations of serious misappropriation of 1MDB funds. This investiga

Malay groups do not support rally planned by Red Shirts

IT can perhaps be said that Bersih 4 marked a historical milestone in the political maturity of Malaysians. Along with the massive turn-out, the rally was peaceful, culminating in the Merdeka Eve celebrations. We are grateful that the Royal Malaysia Police showed restraint and stepped aside as the protesters exercised their rights to have a peaceful assembly. Bersih 4 was a rally for all Malaysians regardless of background. However, even before the rally, some quarters would like us to believe that Bersih 4 was an assault by the Chinese to undermine the Malay-Muslim leadership at the helm of the country’s administration and comments continue to be made about the under-representation of Malay

Panel needs to work quickly

THE prime minister has appointed very credible personalities to be on the Special Economic Committee tasked with recommending measures to address the economic problems facing the country — the rising price levels, the outflow of funds and the falling ringgit. Most of those named were veterans of the major restructuring programmes undertaken in the aftermath of the 1997/1998 East Asian financial crisis to restore confidence in the economy and they did an excellent job of creating a stronger financial and corporate sector, complementing the internationally acclaimed financial sector reforms carried out by Bank Negara Malaysia. They, and our central bank economists, were also instrumental in ad
