Betulkah Anak Muda Undi Pakatan Tak Mengaji Kitab?


Kata Haji Abdul Hadi Awang ketika merasmikan Muktamar Dewan Muslimat PAS di Bukit Gambang Resort City, dekat Kuantan, Pahang, disebabkan 30 % golongan anak muda melakukan kesilapan bila menumbangkan BN telah mengundang mudarat lebih besar dengan memilih PH.

"Tiga puluh peratus pengudi muda (mengundi PH) yang berumur 21 tahun yang tak mengaji kitab, (tidak) mengaji agama, (tapi) mengaji dengan telefon bimbit, mengaji dengan Facebook, mengaji dengan WhatsApp.

"Kefahaman (mereka) dalam masa singkat, dengan WhatsApp, (kemudian) membuat sikap politik," katanya.

"Politik bukan kajian dua tiga minit (tetapi) untuk beberapa tahun akan datang, akhirnya (mereka) membuat keputusan yang salah,"

"Kerana marahkah Umno, kelambu dibakar; marahkan nyamuk, kelambu dibakar. Sembilan puluh peratus bukan Islam mengundi PH,"

Hmmm... betoi ka tu??

Ni jawapan dari BIRO Agama Pemuda Bersatu Nasional..

BIRO Agama Pemuda Bersatu Nasional kesal dengan ucapan Presiden PAS Haji Abdul Hadi Awang, seperti yang dilaporkan media, bahawa 30% anak muda yang berumur 21 tahun ketika mengundi Pakatan Harapan (PH) sebagai tidak mengaji kitab dan tidak belajar agama.

Mereka sebaliknya hanya bergantung kepada telefon bimbit, Facebook dan WhatsApp untuk menentukan sikap politik ketika mengundi sehingga kerajaan Barisan Nasional (BN) tumbang dalam pilihan raya umum yang lalu, kata beliau. 
Saya menonton dan meneliti rakaman ucapan beliau yang disampaikan lebih dari satu jam ketika hadir di Muktamar Tahunan Dewan Muslimat PAS ke-59 2019 di Gambang, Kuantan pada 15 Jun lalu. 
Laras ayat sebegitu sangat tidak sesuai dengan kedudukan beliau sebagai tokoh politik dan agamawan yang disegani.

Membuat tuduhan umum dalam bentuk merendahkan tahap intelek orang lain iaitu 30% anak muda berumur 21 tahun adalah satu tindakan yang melanggar adab susila agama apatah lagi dilakukan oleh tokoh agamawan seperti beliau.

Perbezaan pilihan mengundi pada pilihan raya umum yang lalu sudah tentu bukan tiket menghalalkan tindakan tersebut. 
Hadi mendakwa sikap politik 30% anak muda itu telah menyebabkan kerajaan BN kalah kepada Pakatan Harapan (PH) pada 9 Mei 2018. 
Kesimpulan ini sangat membingungkan kerana yang menolak BN pada PRU14 bukan sahaja anak muda tetapi juga PAS yang turut menentang BN. 
Dalam sebuah ceramah sempena Himpunan Bangkit Pertahan Kelantan di Padang Perdana, Kota Bharu pada 16 Mac 2018, Hadi secara jelas, lantang dan terbuka menegaskan komitmen PAS untuk bukan sahaja melawan PH, tetapi juga untuk melawan BN.

Hakikatnya, PAS juga bersama-sama membantu menumbangkan BN dalam PRU yang lalu apabila meletakkan calon bertanding melawan calon PH, BN dan bebas. 
Amat pelik, apabila hukuman tidak membaca kitab dan tidak mempelajari agama hanya diberikan kepada anak muda sehingga jatuhnya BN tetapi gelaran yang sama tidak diberikan kepada PAS yang diketuai oleh Hadi sendiri? 
Marilah kita sama-sama mengamalkan politik matang dan sejahtera seperti yang sering dilaungkan oleh PAS sendiri termasuk bukan membalas dendam melalui ucapan dan gelaran buruk sehingga mampu menjatuhkan maruah tokoh agama mahupun Islam itu sendiri.

Hormati perbezaan pilihan parti politik dan bukannya menyuburkan amalan label melabel seperti yang berlaku ini.

AZMIN ALLY SHAMSUL ALL SET TO SACK HAZIQ WHILE AZMIN FREE TO ROAM THE CORRIDORS OF POWER? HAZIQ HAS RESPONDED TO SHOW-CAUSE LETTER, SAYS MINISTRY SEC-GEN BUT DECLINES TO SAY WHO WILL MAKE THE DECISION TO FIRE HAZIQ FOR ‘CONFESSING’ TO HAVING GAY SEX WITH AZMIN

PUTRAJAYA: Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz has responded to a show-cause letter over the viral sex videos.
Primary Industries Ministry secretary-general Datuk Dr Tan Yew Chong said that the letter was delivered to the office of Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin, whom Haziq is the senior private secretary to.
“He has responded to the letter and it was sent to the Deputy Minister. I’m not sure when the letter was sent,” he told reporters at the ministry’s Hari Raya open house on Tuesday (June 18).
Tan said that Shamsul Iskandar was not present at the event because he was in Paris for an official function.
He also said that Haziq had not showed up for work since the video went viral.
Tan declined to comment when asked who could make the decision to dismiss Haziq.
“The Deputy Minister said he would decide on this in one or two days,” he said.
On June 13, Shamsul Iskandar said Haziq had been suspended from his duties with immediate effect and had also been issued with a show-cause letter, and failure to respond within three days could result in his dismissal.
A news portal on Monday quoted Shamsul Iskandar as saying that his ministry would decide on Haziq’s fate within “one or two days” and the ministry was assessing his response to the show-cause letter.
Haziq is said to have sent the response letter on June 14.
On Wednesday (June 12), Haziq admitted that he was the other individual seen in a sex video, which had been making its rounds on social media and WhatsApp.
He also claimed that the other person was Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, who is also Economic Affairs Minister.
Azmin, in denying his involvement in the sex video, had said people should not resort to cruel and filthy acts of political sabotage.

IN SIGN OF GROWING DESPERATION, AZMIN RESORTS TO USING RAJA PETRA’S SCRIPT: WHAT MISSING, I AM HERE IN PETALING JAYA NOT PHILIPPINES, I CAN SHOW MY PASSPORT & I NEVER WAS IN KLIA WITH HAZIQ- ANWAR’S POL-SEC DENOUNCES HIS OWN PARTY NO.2 & NAJIB’S TOP BLOGGER

KUALA LUMPUR – Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s political secretary today shot down blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin’s attempt to link him to a controversy involving Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, pointing out he was not even at the airport where the latter was arrested days ago.
Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak, the political secretary to PKR president Anwar, described Raja Petra’s allegations as “ridiculous” claims that can be easily disproved.
Raja Petra had recently tweeted that Haziq was on the day of his arrest with Farhash at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, and that both men were “on their way to a safe house in Manila which Anwar had arranged for Haziq”.
But commenting on Raja Petra’s tweet, Farhash today bluntly told Malay Mail: “It’s fake.”
Last Friday, which was when Haziq was arrested at KLIA, Farhash said he was doing his usual daily work and taking his “usual route”.
“I was in Petaling Jaya and also my friend’s shop. I was in Petaling Jaya, Cheras,” he said, adding that he was mostly in Petaling Jaya on that day.
He explained that he was last Friday doing his daily work as Anwar’s political secretary and as Perak PKR head.
“I was nowhere close in KLIA. If I am there, I am sure pictures of me would be taken.
“This is all cooked-up story. People like to pinpoint me because I am the political secretary of Anwar. My position makes me a target,” he told Malay Mail.
Farhash also noted that many individuals could vouch that he has been in the country all these while and not abroad.
“I’ve never been out of the country. I have been going about my usual activities.
“It’s ridiculous. So easy to prove I’ve never been out of the country. I’m always in the country. I can show my passport. I’ve been around.
“So these are baseless allegations, even social media people are pointing out where I was,” he added.
He also rebutted a news report that claimed he has gone missing.
“I am not missing. If I am missing, my family would be the first person to lodge a report that I am missing. I am not missing, I’m in daily contact with everyone,” he said.
Farhash said he initially did not want to comment on Raja Petra’s claim as it was merely an “accusation without any proof whatsoever”, adding that he wanted to let the police complete its investigation and noted the risk that what he said could be “spinned”.
“There’s no proof to what Raja Petra said. I was nowhere near KLIA or Manila or other countries,” he said, asserting that he has only been in Malaysia.
Noting that Raja Petra can write anything without regard for facts without repercussion as he is not in Malaysia but based abroad, Farhash said he is not bothered to sue the blogger.
“It’s ridiculous. Raja Petra comes out with all sorts of crazy stories. I don’t find it a need to lodge a report or start a lawsuit,” he said.
“Raja Petra these days he will just say what he wants, write anything he wants regardless of the fact. That’s Raja Petra. So no point for me to lodge a police report or sue. What for? It’ll be a waste of my time and money,” he said.
Farhash said Raja Petra’s fake claims reflected the blame game in the sex video controversy.
“This is a conspiracy theory. They are trying to pinpoint and blame everybody,” he said, later adding that he feels the whole matter “has been blown out of proportion”.
“It’s a blame game. But what is important, let the police do the work, verify whether the video is authentic and find out who are the guys behind it,” he said.
Yesterday, a source close to PKR and Farhash told Malay Mail that Raja Petra’s tweet is a “false accusation”.
Raja Petra’s tweet is linked to the scandal, where Santubong PKR member Haziq has claimed to have had engaged in sexual acts with PKR deputy president and Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.
Earlier today, Azmin said he believes that the viral sex videos implicating him are the work of a party insider after a state PKR leader, rumoured to be Farhash, was said to have been uncontactable or missing.
Azmin says ‘convinced’ sex videos are inside job after PKR man goes missing
SHAH ALAM – PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali believes that the viral sex videos implicating him are the work of a party insider.
Amid police investigations into the sex videos, a state PKR leader has been uncontactable after being linked to Azmin’s accuser Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz who is suspected of making the false allegations in a political plot.
The economic affairs minister added that the public could also surmise for themselves the masterminds behind the sex videos.
“From the very beginning, I am sure that this has a political agenda, done by certain people who intend to halt my performance in the government as well as in politics.
“Let the people judge the matter as it has been proven that the perception of who is behind the conspiracy and claims continues to build up,” he said, after witnessing the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Selangor government in its “Rumah Idaman affordable housing programme with developers Konsortium PCSB-MGB dan Must Ehsan Development Sdn Bhd here.
Also present at the event were Selangor Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari, and Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin.
Earlier today, The Star daily reported an unnamed state party leader is incommunicado since the first sex video was released last Tuesday.
It reported that the leader’s name had emerged as he was said to have relatives in the Philippines.

Court adjourns early after defence asks for further documents 
4.30pm - The proceeding for today is adjourned ahead of its 5pm call time as the defence requires witness Mazidah Abdul Majid to bring a guideline document before they can further question her.
Lead defence counsel Muhammad Shafee Abdullah says they would need to study the guideline for cabinet members, as the retired cabinet deputy secretary-general had brought up about requirement for administration members to excuse themselves from a meeting in the event they might have a conflict of interest.
Shafee says that the defence would also need her to provide further details into three examples she had given in her witness statement on instances where ministers had excused themselves from cabinet meeting.
The witness tells the court that she might not be able to do much as she has now retired, before Shafee says that it is now up to the prosecution to try to get further documents from cabinet meetings as stated in the example.
For the record, minutes of cabinet meetings are sealed under the Official Secrets Act (OSA), and would have to be declassified by the government before it can be tendered in court.
DPP V Sithambaram (below) says that they are working together with officers from the Prime Minister's Department to get the documents, and they would try to make it available the first thing when the hearing resumes tomorrow morning.
In the earlier part of the hearing, Mazidah had in her testimony said there was a practice for cabinet members to declare any conflict of interest should they have any during a meeting, and that they were to leave the meeting when the related memorandum is presented.
She gave examples of cabinet meetings on Dec 14, 2016 where then defence minister Hishammuddin Hussein left the cabinet meeting, when then youth and sports minister Khairy Jamaluddin left the cabinet meeting on April 26, 2017, and when Najib excluded himself from a cabinet meeting on Nov 23, 2012.
However, no details on the three meetings were provided in Mazidah's witness statement.
Initially, Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali wanted the hearing to resume until 5pm, when he asks the prosecution if they have another witness to call today besides Mazidah.
However, when Sithambaram tells the court that they do not have another witness ready for examination today, Nazlan rules for the hearing to be adjourned until 9am tomorrow.

Witness: I would've alerted AGC if I'd known Najib was SRC adviser
4pm - Retired cabinet deputy secretary-general Mazidah Abdul Majid testifies that, if she had known that then premier Najib Abdul Razak was adviser emeritus to SRC International, she would have raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest with the Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC).
During cross-examination by Najib's lead defence counsel Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, the 40th witness says this is what she would have done if she had known about Najib's involvement with SRC International when the cabinet approved a government guarantee for an RM2 billion loan to the company in 2011.
SRC International was granted a first loan of RM2 billion from the Retirement Fund Incorporated (KWAP) in August 2011, and a second loan of the same amount in March 2012.
Earlier today, Mazidah testified that, in meetings chaired by then prime minister Najib in Aug 2011 and Feb 2012, members of the cabinet then had approved a government guarantee for each loan.
She had told the court that the cabinet ministers present at the time did not discuss the proposed government guarantee before it was approved.
"If it was brought to me that he (Najib) was adviser emeritus and (there were) any potential conflicts of interest, I would have referred the matter to the AGC," she tells Shafee.

Najib left a cabinet meeting in 2012 due to conflict of interest - witness
3.44pm - Former cabinet deputy secretary-general Mazidah Abdul Majid testifies that then-premier Najib Abdul Razak had left a cabinet meeting on Nov 23, 2012, due to conflict of interest.
During examination-in-chief by DPP Muhammad Izzat Fauzan, the witness tells the High Court that it is a practice for cabinet ministers to declare their interest and leave the meeting if needed to avoid conflict of interest.
She says the cabinet minister could then return to the meeting after other ministers had deliberated on the matter in the discussion which posed a conflict of interest.
"Najib Abdul Razak had also left a (cabinet) meeting. According to records of the Cabinet Department, he left a cabinet meeting on Nov 23, 2012 when the meeting was discussing a memorandum involving CIMB Bank Bhd," she reads out from her 35-page witness statement.
Najib's brother Nazir Razak was the chief executive officer of CIMB Group in 2012.
Mazidah tells Izzat that other cabinet ministers such as Khairy Jamaluddin and Hishammuddin Hussein (above) had also left cabinet meetings when they discussed matters which may involve a conflict of interest.
"During the MJM (Bahasa Malaysia acronym for cabinet meeting) on April 26, 2017, youth and sports minister Khairy Jamaluddin, left the meeting when a memorandum by the prime minister (Najib) was tabled.
"During a MJM on Dec 14, 2016, defence minister Hishammuddin Hussein left the meeting when a memorandum was tabled by the prime minister (Najib)," she says.
However, she does not reveal what were the matters that caused the two then ministers to excuse themselves from cabinet meetings to avoid conflict of interest.

'Cabinet approved RM100m short-term gov't loan to SRC'
3.30pm - The cabinet chaired during a meeting on Nov 6, 2015 had approved an RM100 million short-term government loan to SRC International for the company to service its loan with KWAP, the High Court hears.
Mazidah Abdul Majid, who is a retired cabinet deputy secretary-general, testifies that a memorandum by Finance Ministry was tabled by then second finance minister Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah during the meeting chaired by then prime minister Najib Abdul Razak for the cabinet to consider giving the loan.
According to the prosecution's 40th witness, the purpose of the government loan was stated as payment for interest and late charge on KWAP's RM4 billion Bai' Al-Inah loan facility.
She tells the court that among justifications given in the memorandum included, to prevent KWAP from terminating its loan agreement and trigger event of default, which would, in turn, cause the government to have to take over full repayment of SRC International's loan as its guarantor.
"This situation would give impact to the country's fiscal position and the government's annual budget planning," Mazidah says in reading her witness statement.
According to Mazidah, the loan to SRC International was approved by the cabinet meeting without any discussions among cabinet members in attendance as there was no such note to suggest that in the meeting's minute.

Cabinet also committed to gov't guarantee for second RM2b loan sans discussion
2.45pm - Retired cabinet deputy secretary-general Mazidah Abdul Majid testifies that the cabinet passed a resolution to provide a government guarantee for the second tranche of an RM2 billion loan from Retirement Fund Incorporated (KWAP) to SRC International without any discussion by ministers present.
During examination-in-chief by DPP Muhammad Izzat Fauzan, the 40th witness says that the resolution was approved without discussion during the Feb 8, 2012 cabinet meeting chaired by then prime minister and finance minister Najib Abdul Razak.
"There was no discussion during the cabinet meeting (which took place on Feb 8, 2012).
"If there had been a discussion, the minutes would mention it," Mazidah testifies.
SRC International was granted a loan totalling RM4 billion from KWAP.
The first tranche of RM2 billion was granted in August 2011, and the second tranche of RM2 billion was granted in March 2012.
As then finance minister, Najib headed the Minister of Finance Incorporated (MoF Inc).
At the time of the loans, SRC was a subsidiary of 1MDB, which in turn was owned by MoF Inc.
Mazidah testifies that among ministers present at the cabinet meeting were then deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin; then home minister Hishammuddin Hussein; then information, communications and culture minister Rais Yatim; then minister in prime minister's department Nor Mohamed Yakcop; then rural and regional development minister Mohd Shafie Apdal; and then international trade and industry minister Mustapa Mohamed.
Other ministers present were then defence minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, then health minister Liow Tiong Lai and then human resources minister S Subramaniam. 

2.40pm - Proceedings resume with the examination-in-chief of the 40th witness, retired cabinet deputy secretary-general Mazidah Abdul Majid.
1pm - Proceedings break for lunch, and are expected to resume at 2.30pm this afternoon.

Cabinet committed to gov't guarantee for RM2b loan without discussion
12.45pm - The court moves on to the next witness, former cabinet deputy secretary-general Mazidah Abdul Majid.
She testifies that, at a meeting in 2011, the cabinet passed a resolution to provide a government guarantee for SRC International to secure a RM2 billion loan without any discussion by ministers in attendance.
Furthermore, she states the minutes of the cabinet meeting did not show that any discussion had taken place regarding the matter.
The cabinet meeting was held on Aug 17, 2011, and was chaired by then premier and finance minister Najib Abdul Razak.
According to Mazidah, a memorandum had been received from the Finance Ministry.
The memorandum was meant for the cabinet to discuss a guarantee for SRC International to acquire a RM2 billion loan from market sources or domestic financial institutions, in order to finance its activities in the natural resources sector.
Apart from this, the memorandum was meant to secure tax exemptions for SRC International, and for then prime minister Najib Abdul Razak to be given the power to determine the terms and conditions of the loan.
"There was no discussion by the cabinet (regarding the memorandum), because if there were any, it would appear in the meeting's minutes.
"Such a note does not exist in these minutes," she says.

Witness: If SRC board didn't listen to Najib, we would be removed
12.15pm - Members of SRC International's board of directors only had two options if they refused to abide by minutes containing advice from then prime minister Najib Abdul Razak - resign, or be removed.
This is revealed by the former 1MDB subsidiary's chairperson Ismee Ismail during re-examination by DPP Ishak Mohd Yusoff.
Ishak: What would have happened if the board did not abide by the minutes?
Ismee: It is hypothetical now. Either (the members of the board of directors would have to) step down or we would be removed.
In earlier testimony, the court heard that then finance minister Najib was the advisor emeritus of SRC International.
In accordance with Article 117 of the company's Memorandum and Articles of Association, Najib's advice on material and strategic matters regarding the company had to be seriously considered and implemented by the board. 

Are you asking about J Lo or Jho Low, witness asks DPP
11.10am - Those present at the SRC International trial in Kuala Lumpur High Court are in stitches when DPP V Sithambaram repeatedly refers to 1MDB-linked businessperson Low Taek Jho (below) as "J Lo" instead of "Jho Low".
This prompts lead defence counsel Muhammad Shafee Abdullah to tell Sithambaram that he is supposed to be referring to Jho Low.
J Lo is most commonly known as a nickname for American singer Jennifer Lopez.
However, it appears that Sithambaram initially does not realise his mistake as he goes on to defend his reference to Low while re-examining witness Ismee Ismail.
Sithambaram: My learned friend (defence counsel) Harvinderjit (Singh) yesterday asked you some questions, and I want to ask you again just to clarify. He asked you whether Jerome Lee, Terrence Geh and Nik Faisal were close associates of J Lo. And you say now you know that they are (close associates)?
Ismee: Yes, yes.
Sithambaram: What was the designation of Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak in 1MDB?
Ismee: (He was the) chairperson of 1MDB's board of advisers.
Sithambaram: What was the post (or) position of J Lo in 1MDB's board of director?
Ismee: No position in 1MDB.
Sithambaram: I want to ask the same question as Harvinderjit. From what you know, is Najib a close associate of J Lo?
Ismee: I wouldn't know.
This prompts Shafee to correct Sithambaram.
Shafee: It's Jho Low.
Sithambaram: Yes, J Lo.
The DPP's reply then causes many in the courtroom to burst into laughter, before the witness Ismee, who is former chairperson of SRC International, also chimes in.
Ismee: You asked (me) about J Lo or Jho Low?

SRC not compelled to follow Najib's advice, witness agrees
10.22am - Former SRC International chairperson Ismee Ismail agrees with the defence that Article 117 of SRC International's Memorandum and Articles of Association does not compel the company's board to follow then prime minister and advisor emeritus to the company Najib Abdul Razak's advice on how the company is managed.
During cross-examination by lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, the 39th witness agrees that this differs from Section 3 of the Petroleum Development Act 1974, whereby Petronas is subject to the control and direction of the prime minister.
Shafee: Referring to Article 117, whereby the prime minister was appointed as advisor emeritus, (with regard to) the prime minister's advice, the board shall give consideration and implement any advice in the best interests of the company.
This is different from Section 3, which is a mandatory direction (from the prime minister on Petronas).
Article 117 is still (in line) with the Companies Act, (to act) in the best interests of the company.
Ismee: Yes.
Ismee also says that while he was SRC chairperson, he saw nothing wrong with following Najib's advice, as represented by then company CEO Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil, as it was perceived to be in the best interests of the company.

SRC finance head may have misled CEO on audit submission - witness
10am - SRC International's former CEO Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil might have been misled by its then finance director Terrence Geh about the submission of the company's audited financial report for 2013, the High Court hears.
The prosecution's 39th witness Ismee Ismail tells the court that this could also be the case why the board was misled into believing that the report had been submitted to the Companies Commission.
Ismee, who was the company's chairperson, gives this testimony during cross-examination by lead defence lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah (below).
Shafee: Now Tan Sri, this is important, I hope you don't get uncomfortable. The court will decide on Najib's fate. (Defence lawyer) Harvinderjit Singh has taken you on in several instances. Do you believe - when Nik Faisal says this audited account, it was inadvertent, when he falsely reported to the board that the audited account had been submitted - would you believe him?
Ismee: What I can recall, what I believe then, is that he may have also been misrepresented by Terrence who prepared the account.
Shafee: Terrence, what is his full name?
Ismee: Terrence Geh.

Witness: In hindsight, I wouldn't have joined SRC board
9.50am - Prosecution witness Ismee Ismail (below) tells the High Court that he would not have accepted the appointment to become SRC International Sdn Bhd's board member if he had known about issues of dishonesty concerning the former 1MDB subsidiary's CEO Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil then.
This testimony comes from Ismee after he agrees with defence lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah that he has a different view of Nik Faisal today.
Shafee: Do you agree with me that the honesty of the CEO, in this case Nik Faisal, is of the utmost importance for the board to function?
Ismee: Yes.
Shafee: He must be candid, (engage in) full disclosure, and be honest for the board to make decisions?
Ismee: Yes.
Shafee: You have no difficulty with the board. But trusting Nik Faisal..you had no issue trusting him at the time?
Ismee: No.
Shafee: It's accurate to say that today you have a different view of Nik Faisal, after much exposure. We have showed you documents, proof?
Ismee: Yes.
Shafee: With the benefit of hindsight, if you had known then (what you know now), you would be more careful?
Ismee: I would not have accepted the appointment (to SRC International's board of directors), even.
Shafee: Why?
Ismee: Why should I?
Shafee: You must have a reason.
IsmeeSusah nak percaya (It would be hard to trust).
Shafee: The board can't function (without the honesty of the CEO)?
Ismee: Yes.

Rosmah leaves court after prosecution questions presence
9.38am - Najib Abdul Razak's wife Rosmah Mansor exits the court after DPP V Sithambaram raises the question of whether it is proper for her to be in the same court as her husband, as she is a potential witness in the case.
She is seen standing up from the front row of the public gallery and leaving the court together with her lawyer K Kumaraendran.
Immediately prior to that, Sithambaram informs the court that as Rosmah's statement had been recorded, it would be prudent for her not to be in court to avoid future problems.
"Rosmah Mansor is in court. She is a potential witness in this case, her witness statement was recorded.
"We do not wish for any problems later. We do not wish to be seen as being difficult. It is just a matter of procedure," says Sithambaram.
Najib's lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah then informs the court that he will leave it to Kuala Lumpur High Court judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali to make a decision on the matter.

Rosmah arrives at court
9.22am - Clad in a red baju kurung, Najib Abdul Razak's wife Rosmah Mansor enters the courtroom.
She takes a seat at the front row of the public gallery, right behind the dock where her husband sits while proceedings are underway.
Najib's lead counsel Muhammad Shafee Abdullah is cross-examining former SRC International chairperson Ismee Ismail.

SRC ex-CEO had 'a good family background'
9.20am - The High Court hears from a witness that former CEO of SRC International Sdn Bhd, Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil, was the grandson of former Kelantan Menteri Besar and Dewan Rakyat Speaker, Nik Ahmad Kamil.
The mention of Nik Faisal's lineage comes about during the cross-examination of Ismee Ismail, who is the company's former chairperson, when defence lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah questions Ismee about the qualifications of those who sat on SRC International's board of directors.
While testifying that he does not know who appointed Nik Faisal as CEO and managing director of the company, Ismee agrees to Shafee's suggestion that Nik Faisal came from a good background and possessed good qualifications.
Shafee: Do you know how Nik Faisal was appointed?
Ismee: To SRC? No idea.
Shafee: You didn't try to find out?
Ismee: No.
Shafee: He was a young man. How old was he?
Ismee: If you ask me to guess... I never thought of asking (about) his age. I think he was 46.
Shafee: So he should be more than 46 now. How old are you?
Ismee: 54.
Shafee: (Do you know) Nik Faisal's family background and so on?
Ismee: Who was his late grandfather... if I'm not mistaken, his (Nik Faisal's) grandfather was former speaker or Kelantan MB.
Shafee: So his late grandfather Nik Kamil was the first Malay speaker (of the Dewan Rakyat)?
Ismee: I think so. He came from a good family background.
Shafee: And Nik Kamil was also former MB of Kelantan?
Ismee: Yes.
Shafee: You would agree he came from a well-regarded family in Kelantan?
Ismee: Yes.
Shafee: And (in) Malaysia?
Ismee: Yes.
Ismee then concurs with a suggestion by Shafee that Nik Faisal was not just someone who was plucked out of nowhere to be SRC International CEO and managing director, as he had good qualifications and came from a good background.

Najib enters the dock
9.07am - Najib Abdul Razak steps into the dock as proceedings begin.
9am - The accused enters the court and takes a seat in the front row of the public gallery to await the start of proceedings.
Also seen in court is his lead counsel Muhammad Shafee Abdullah and the defence team, as well as DPP V Sithambaram and others comprising the prosecution team.

Today marks the seventh day that former SRC International chairperson Ismee Ismail will take the stand in former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak’s trial for alleged abuse of power, corruption, and money laundering of RM42 million from SRC International.
When the 27th day of the hearing begins before Kuala Lumpur High Court judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali at 9am today, 39th witness Ismee will again face a grilling from Najib’s defence lawyer Harvinderjit Singh.
After Harvinderjit wraps up his cross-examination, Najib’s lead counsel Muhammad Shafee Abdullah is expected to take over the questioning of Ismee, as Harvinderjit informed the judge at the end of yesterday's proceedings.
In the course of the periodically contentious questioning, which saw Harvinderjit and Ismee clash more than once since Tuesday last week, the witness had yielded peeks into the inner workings of SRC International, a former 1MDB subsidiary which became fully owned by the Minister of Finance Incorporated (MoF Inc) in 2012.
Najib, who was then head of MOF Inc, currently faces one count of abuse of power, three counts of graft and three counts of money laundering involving the RM42 million, 
Yesterday, the heated cross-examination by Harvinderjit led to Ismee testifying that SRC International’s board of directors (BOD) had taken then premier Najib to be the equivalent of the government, in relation to the process in approving the company’s application for a loan from Retirement Fund Incorporated (KWAP) involving a second tranche of RM2 billion, among others.
Despite Harvinderjit’s insistence that that Najib was merely part of the larger government machinery, Ismee kept saying that the accused was, for all intents and purposes, the government. 
The witness said this was based on the representation by SRC International’s then chief executive officer Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil to the company’s BOD.
Currently missing and wanted by the authorities to assist in the ongoing 1MDB probe, Nik Faisal has been the target of the defence’s line of cross-examination, with Ismee being bombarded with questions on whether Nik Faisal lied to SRC International’s BOD over several key matters in the financial management of the company.
