Stunning Indictment of Sarawak Report

Source:  BlogTakes

Winifred Poh who writes for Free Malaysia Today has taken up the challenge. Some weeks ago, she had written a piece (see here) which Clare Rewcastle of Sarawak Report subsequently took offence (see here). Today at Free Malaysia Today, she writes on the ugly story about the faking of evidence in Datuk Seri Mahmud Abu Bekir Taib’s divorce case. And who had a hand in it.

clare-brown1I am unimpressed with the antics of Sarawak Report, Bruno Manser Fund and Global Witness. This is not because I want to deflate the debate on the future of Sarawak, because this debate has huge implications for Malaysia, and the choices are not straightforward.

And it is hard to be confident in an administration led by one wily politician, who has dominated the politics of his state for thirty years. Are we seriously meant to have confidence in an administration that was so centred on one man? Without an effective, critical media, debate within the press only really happened when two branches of the same family were engaged in a private political war.

Clare Rewcastle herself, in a recent article on FMT, challenged me to a “simple exercise”, to look at her articles and check their facts. Well, I have done just that, and it was by checking the facts that I could see her whole story fall apart. Notwithstanding Clare Rewcastle’s claim that her organisation is just a small beacon of truth, its reach into Malaysian politics and its online and radio presence clearly show a dedicated and well funded group. I have looked at some of the key campaigns led by Rewcastle, Bruno Manser Fund and Global Witness. That these groups are interconnected is a given: Sarawak Report is advertising a Bruno Manser Fund book on its main page. So I ask again: are we looking at fraud and theft, or serious questions about strategy, policy and social justice?

Well, the foreign NGOs will get no critical help from the Malaysian media. The conventional media will censor themselves to near silence, and the opposition websites are just as slavish, in their attempt to follow and endorse anything that undermines BN. I therefore want to look at some of the key stories that have been put forward by the three foreign organisations. These are the stories that shock us (and draw more attention to these publications), but how much fact is there really behind them? How many mistakes have Rewcastle Brown Publishing, Bruno Manser Fund and Global Witness made?

So here is the first story, of which you have so far seen only scraps and pieces as they emerge in the media, drawn together into a single piece of analysis. Continue reading

The Hands of Anwar Ibrahim and PKR behind the Sarawak Report

Clare with Jaban

Claire with Jaban

Over the past weeks, we have seen how London-based Sarawak Report moving from anti-logging issues to the 1MDB issue. Who are the people behind Sarawak Report and Free Radio Sarawak, which are known for spinning and creating issues.

It’s headed by Claire Rewcastle Brown, more popularly known as the sister in law of ex-British premier Gordon Brown, but she is also the husband of lobbyist and political strategist Andrew Brown. In short, he carries out political work to whoever pays him – and how much! The question next is who funds Sarawak Report ?

Anwar and Jaban

Anwar and Jaban

Claire may have a reputation as an investigative reporter but the bottom line is the question of the political link. It is well known that she is closed to PKR and Anwar Ibrahim. There is also the link to Baru Bian – another PKR leader.

Working under her is Papa Orang Utan or Peter John Jaban, an Iban from Sarawak and a former civil servant with the Land and Survey Office of Kuching.

He was also a former DJ of the state-owned Cats FM radio station.[8] Jaban worked the airwaves for that station from 1996-1999.

Jaban and his girlfriends

Jaban also served as the Deputy Chairperson of the Sarawak Dayak Iban Association and was active as a human rights activist in Sarawak. He is now actively involved with the Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement, a non-profit organisation based in London. Essentially it is a front to support Anwar.

kawan3In June 2012, Jaban returned to Sarawak purportedly for a medical check up in Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s Miri Branch Chairman Dr.Michael Teo’s clinic. He could have gone to any clinic but he chose to go to a PKR clinic – we should know by now where he is involved!

He then claimed he was accosted by three men from Dr.Michael’s car – and soon a press statement was released by Jaban’s DAP lawyer Alan Ling Sie Kiong!

We produce here pictures of the party animal Jaban with his girlfriends, with Anwar Ibrahim and Claire with Jaban. We hope our readers will just reflect and think.

How reliable and trust worthy is The New York Times?

The New York Times recently published a lengthy five part series on 1MDB where the Jewish owned newspaper tried to link Jho Low with the Prime Minister.

How reliable and trust worthy is this newspaper owned by Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr, a Jewish tycoon? Read about the readiness of this newspaper to LIE!

Interview: The New York Times journalist who quit in disgust

By Mat Ward

Daniel Simpson with his fake Financial Times

Most mainstream media journalists would kill to get one of their stories on the front page of The New York Times. But when that happened to the newspaper’s Balkans correspondent in 2003, he was less than thrilled.

Daniel Simpson had already resigned in disgust at the paper’s support for starting wars, and was serving out his notice. He had reached what he calls “a mirrored ceiling” in his career.

The phrase — in Simpson’s gonzo memoir, A Rough Guide To The Dark Side — conjours up an image of the journalist taking a long, hard look at himself before breaking through the mirror. But the story is, like most stories in Simpson’s life, a little more complicated than it first appears.

“I was alluding to the warped world beyond, through Lewis Carroll’s looking glass, while also trying to capture how I felt,” he tells Green Left Weekly.

“It only seemed possible to rise higher at the Times if I bought their illusions, and having seen through them, this would have been consciously corrupt.

“Until that point, I’d been unconscious of cooption as a journalist — like most of my peers. But as my eyes lost their scales, I saw my own flaws more clearly, and freaked out. Continue reading

1MDB on the right track

1mdb-feat-650x400

I wrote this back in October last year,

The need to convincingly explain 1MDB

At that time I was becoming skeptical of 1MDB due to the incessant attacks against it.

As it is, when you relentlessly attack something, some people may in the end believe it.

That is actually the tactic used by Pakatan against the BN government.

Since then, I noticed that 1MDB had started to try to explain itself to the people.

Some of their effort were not so good but there were times when they got it right and their explanation did to a certain extent clear the air.

What ever it is, at least they had improved by making the effort to engage the public and dispel some doubts about their operations.

That’s important, as everyone knows, the attacks directed at 1MDB were actually meant for PM DS Najib Razak.

Of course there were some more rooms for improvements, but what 1MDB was doing now at the very least is encouraging.

It is better than letting itself be a sitting duck ready to be shot at by their detractors all the time. Continue reading

Najib Razak, Tong Kooi Ong & Jho Low victims of fabricated evidence

Omissions, distortion, inaccuracy and bias in the media industry has made it difficult for the average Malaysian to gain an objective view of many of the issues that affect Malaysia culturally, economically and politically. Those with power and influence know that media control or influence is crucial.

A free press is crucial for a functioning democracy, but if not truly free, paves the way for manipulation and concentration of views, thus undermining democracy itself.

Not too long ago, media magnate Tong Kooi Ong who controls the Edge Media and The Malaysian Insider was targeted by an anonymous blogger in an expose that used fabricated evidence to implicate him in a negative light.

The blogger alleged that the media magnate was shorting currency and using his media empire to manipulate business sentiment. The blogger provided a screenshot of smses that were fabricated by professionals. Similar sms ‘exposes’ of Najib Razak had also been played out during the Mongolian Altantuya murder case. Subsequently, the courts have shown the alleged smses by Najib Razak are fake.

Industry experts note that it would be impossible to crash the currency with such a small investment. It seems the intention was to discredit the credibility of the magnate and his publications. Nevertheless local media went to town with the story as the blogger and the media magnate exchanged blows.

The New York Times featured an investigative journalism piece that linked Prime Minister stepson Riza Aziz to prominent businessman Jho Low. The story ran over 6000 words long and was translated into Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin. Continue reading
