  2. Human Resources Minister S. Subramaniam said an initial probe showed that the Hytex Group– remunerated their foreign workers according to their seniority and performance.
  3. only RM100 deducted for an immigration levy
  4. “From our investigations … the employer didn’t breach any labour laws,” (Comment: Not US Labor Law but just Malaysian Labour Laws which NEVER cover the Foreign workers. Ha, Ha, so you need to read between the lines.)
  5. “It has been a policy in this country for quite a number of employers to keep the passports for safety reasons,”
  6. The ministry did not receive any reports of abuse from the Hytex workers but Subramaniam pledged the government would take stern action against any errant employers.

Foreign workers’ rights protector attacked repeatedly by different ‘viruses’

Foreign workers’ right protector

attacked repeatedly by different ‘viruses’

Malaysiakini news by Fauwaz Abdul Aziz | Aug 5, 08

 

A computer virus wiped out several of the recently-typed proceeding notes pertaining to migrant workers’ activist Irene Fernandez’s Kuala Lumpur High Court appeal, resulting in the need for that particular volume of notes to be re-typed.


irene fernandez  appeal 010408 02This was among the reasons for Fernandez’s case mention to be pushed to Sept 10, Justice Mohamad Apandi Ali told the court this morning.

“I was informed (by the typist) that one volume had been partially completed when the computer got corrupted by a virus and she has to type it up all over again,” said Apandi.

The other reason for the delay – to what has already been dubbed ‘the longest trial in Malaysian history’ – was the lack of clerical staff to type out the proceedings notes, he said.

The sovereignty excuse?

The sovereignty excuse?

Adapted into Myanmar politics from the Malaysiakini article by KJ John | Aug 5, 08 

The SPDC government was very upset when the US issued warnings about “due process fair play about Daw Suu.”

I am frankly amused by the SPDC’s argument that we are a sovereign nation and have our own laws and therefore immune to international evaluation. And he implied that the US should not be interfering in Myanmar internal affairs. Frankly, that is not the issue. And this is a wrong argument.

In the international legal system, and based on our adopted standards, every person is innocent until proven guilty.

The 8888 People Uprising in Burma

A Brush With Anarchy
Asiaweek, 9 September 1988

The mood was euphoric. Crowds of People chanted and sang as they swamped the streets of Rangoon, massing beneath banners that expressed their hope that there would soon be an end to one-party rule. “We want a multi-party system,” read one. “Democracy is at hand”, said another. Some demonstrators waved the national flag upside down wore scarlet headbands to symbolise defiance. Bands of red-robed Buddhist monks, students and factory workers drove round the Burmese capital in open trucks, cheering and shouting. “It was like a carnival,” recalled one eyewitness. “There was great happiness.” The cause for celebration was the Aug. 24 lifting of martial law, imposed on the city three weeks earlier. The same day, Maung Maung, the country’s newly named president, announced in a nationwide television and radio broadcast that the ruling Burma Socialist Program Party would hold an emergency session by Sep. 12 to decide on adopting a multi-party system; the people, he said, would have their say later in a referendum. If the BSPP accepted a plural system, he said, the entire party leadership would resign.

Think twice before ushering in the hell on earth

just because of the rising petrol price

Comment: An eye for an eye and a atom bomb for a atom bomb, soon the whole world will become the hell on earth

”The Huge Atomic Cloud / The Mushroom Cloud Blowing Up

The atomic cloud (mushroom cloud) produced just after the burst is one of the most intensive characteristics of the A-bomb explosion.

The Hiroshima Meteorological Observatory reported that just after the flash, black smoke rose from the ground up to the sky reaching an altitude of several thousand meters, and covered the whole city. When the fireball disappeared, the angry clouds, like grey smoke, rose and reached an altitude of 8,000 meters in 5 minutes after the explosion.

One of the EnolaGay crew recorded in his flight diary, “9:00a.m…..Clouds were observed. Altitude of 12,000 meters or more.” From a distance the cloud formation looked like a mushroom growing out of the ground, with white cloud at the top and yellowish clouds enveloping reddish-black clouds, creating a color that cannot be described as while, black, red or yellow.

Political pressures vs Ethics, medical confidentiality

UPDATED ARTICLE

From Malaysiakini letter by  Wong Kok Keong | Aug 4, 08  The conspiracy theorists have got this one right 

Based on what the police, ministry of health and leaders have been saying in response to the leaked medical report by Puswari’s Dr Mohamed Osman Abdullah, it is clear they have made up their minds to pooh-pooh the medical report and insist that the only relevant and legal report is the one issued by Hospital Kuala Lumpur. 
 
They have already tried to downgrade Dr Mohamed Osman’s medical report to merely notes from a non-specialist who only performed a superficial examination. Further, the leaked document will be used by the authorities to cast aspersions on Pusrawi Hospital, raising doubts on its and its doctors’ credibility and professionalism to further justify their attempt to rubbish the leak.
