Keluarga persoal keputusan Lembaga Pengampunan



Keluarga Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim mempersoalkan keputusan oleh Lembaga Pengampunan yang menolak permohonan untuk ketua pembangkang itu, yang kini menjalani hukuman penjara lima tahun. 

Menurut anggota keluarganya, presiden PKR Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail dan anak perempuannya, Nurul Izzah dan Nurul Nuha serta Anwar sendiri masih belum menerima surat bagi keputusan tersebut. 

Peguam Anwar, Latheefa Koya berkata, keputusan Lembaga Pengampunan sepatutnya disampaikan secara bertulis oleh Yang di-Pertuan Agong, yang mempengerusikan lembaga tersebut. 

"Dalam soal ini, keputusan itu dibuat oleh Lembaga Pengampunan yang menolak petisyen itu mengikut Peraturan 113, Peraturan Penjara bawah Akta Penjara 1995. 

“Bagaimanapun, keluarga Anwar tidak membuat permohonan rayuan bawah Peraturan 113, yang menimbulkan pertikaian,” katanya kepada pemberita. 

Latheefa berkata, oleh sebab itu peguam tersebut tetap memohon untuk mengenepikan keputusan itu agar Anwar dibenarkan menghadiri sidang parlimen. 

Hakim Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Asmabi Mohamad bagaimanapun memutuskan untuk menolak permohonan tersebut. 

"Beliau turut mengarahkan kos RM3,000 dibayar oleh Anwar,” kata Latheefa.

(BERITA BAIK GST) Kaunter Skim Bayaran Balik Pelancongan Di Lapan Lapangan Terbang Utama Mulai Rabu

KUALA LUMPUR, 31 Mac (Bernama) -- Pelancong yang berbelanja sepanjang berada di Malaysia akan dapat menuntut jumlah yang dibelanjakan ke atas Cukai Barang dan Perkhidmatan (CBP) bagi barangan yang dibeli melalui kaunter Skim Bayaran Balik Pelancongan (TRS) di lapan lapangan terbang utama bermula Rabu.


Timbalan Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Kastam Diraja Malaysia (KDRM) Datuk Abdul Rahman Othman berkata pembukaan kaunter itu membolehkan pelancong untuk menebus jumlah yang dibelanjakan tidak kurang daripada RM300 di 700 peruncit TRS berdaftar di seluruh negara sebelum kembali ke negara mereka.

"Kaunter akan disediakan di lapangan terbang Senai, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching dan Pulau Pinang, Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA), klia2, Lapangan Terbang Sultan Ahmad Shah, Kuantan, Pahang dan Lapangan Terbang Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah di Subang," katanya dalam sidang media selepas pelancaran TRS CBP Malaysia di sini, pada Selasa.

Turut hadir ialah Pengarah IRIS Global Blue TRS Malaysia Sdn Bhd (IGB) Datuk Hamdan Mohd Hassan, Ketua Komersial Global Blue South Asia Nigel Dasler dan Penolong Kanan Pengarah Kastam II Sakenah Begum Md Nazir.

Abdul Rahman mengingatkan pelancong untuk mendapatkan Borang Bebas Cukai selepas membuat bayaran sebelum menuntut pembayaran balik.

"Apabila mereka meninggalkan Malaysia, bawa barangan yang dibeli, resit dan pasport ke kaunter Kastam untuk mengesahkan Borang Bebas Cukai.

"Kemudian, bawa Borang Bebas Cukai yang disahkan, pasport dan kad kredit ke kaunter untuk penebusan," katanya.

Sementara itu, Sakenah Begum berkata hanya pelancong asing dibenarkan menuntut bayaran balik cukai manakala warga Malaysia serta penduduk tetap tidak layak menuntut bayaran balik.

"Diplomat juga dibenarkan menuntut bayaran balik tetapi dengan syarat mereka menamatkan perkhidmatan mereka di Malaysia," katanya.

Beliau berkata mereka yang tidak bertugas di Malaysia sekurang-kurangnya tiga bulan sebelum meninggalkan negara ini dikecualikan daripada layak mendapatkan bayaran balik.

"Pembayaran balik juga tidak diberi kepada mereka yang membuat perjalanan melalui darat atau laut," katanya.

Sementara itu, Dasler berkata IGB diberi konsesi 'tiga-campur-dua tahun' oleh kerajaan untuk membangunkan perisian bagi kaunter TRS di setiap lapangan terbang terpilih.

"Kami telah mendapat kelulusan daripada KDRM untuk mengendalikan kaunter berkenaan. Ia bukanlah kontrak dengan kerajaan memberi kami sejumlah wang, sebaliknya kami diberi konsesi 'tiga-campur-dua tahun' oleh mereka," katanya.

Beliau berkata daripada enam peratus bayaran balik CBP yang dituntut oleh pelancong, IGB akan mendapat 15 peratus daripada nilai bayaran balik. -- BERNAMA

40 countries you can migrate to if you wish to avoid Malaysia's new tax



Happy GST, Malaysia! Today, our beloved nation joins more than 160 other countries that have already applied the Goods and Services Tax to their tax structure. Why is it that 80 per cent of the nations in the world have gotten GST? I dunno, maybe it has proven to be a fairer and more effective form of taxation? If that's so, why then are those politicians saying GST will be bad for us and the nation, that revenues for GST will be used to pay the government's mounting debts, etc? Well, simply because those tax evaders will be able to evade no more. I suspect an unholy alliance between those politicians and some of the major tax evaders in the systematic and holistic attack on the GST these past few months.

In any case, if you choose to trust those politicians, here's the good news for you: 40-odd countries have yet to implement the GST. In Southeast Asia, there are two left: Brunei and Myanmar. A little further away, there's North Korea. A host of African countries are GST-free so you will be spoilt for choice: Angola, Eritrea, Somalia, etc. So if you truly are convinced that GST is the end of good things and your fine living in Malaysia, check out those non-GST countries h e r e for possible migration in the near future.

p.s. I don't mind Cuba myself, actually.

For the rest of us, here's the deal:

UP. Some good things are going to be more expensive from today, no doubt. Six per cent more expensive. Those who love their drinks at the pubs and hotels, for example, will be needing more of those shots because they will be paying more for everything: beers, single malt, wine, tidbits. Even the mineral water at your neighbourhood pub will cost 6% more. So stop drinking or buy from the 7-Eleven.

Your Iphone will be more expensive. Fags cost 50 sen more = RM14 for a packet of 20.

DOWN. But not everything will go up; in fact, prices of many goods and services will be cheaper. Our national car, Proton, will cost less. Even CKD Honda and Toyota will be cheaper from today. No increase in fuel prices at the pump for April. Big bikers, rejoice, cause I hear that those mean machines are going to be less mean when it comes to their price tag, thanks to GST! My Triumph mates are already defiining GST as Gua Suka Triumph or I Love Triumph in anticipation of more savings when one buys a Triple or Tiger!

UNCHANGED. A long list of stuff will remain unchanged with GST, including basic food items and some 4,000 types of medicines/medication.

You can Google for more info. It doesn't cost more to Google, I think.

Thanks to Big Dog for attaching this clip to his latest posting, Divine.



p.s. Some businesses will take advanage of GST to up their prices when they shouldn't. These are profiteers and these leeches will try to make more from you any chance they get. They can be fined up to RM200,000 if found guilty, so don't hesitate to tell on them.

…and the world hasn’t ended. Car prices have even come down, as predicted (so will furniture, and quite a few imported manufactured goods).

Weakened by corruption, Malaysia's economic starts to reel from decades of money laundering, illicit outflows

It is already becoming a cliché to hear politicians boasting on how good and resilient our economy is doing. There is always a mention on our large foreign reserves which are able to finance 9 months imports. On top of that there are always repeated assurances that our economy is fundamentally sound.
On the surface it seems we are on the right track because normally surplus equals savings. With larger foreign reserves, a country not only able to finance more imports but also acts as a cushion against an economic downturn.
However what we are not told is that there are also disadvantages in having large foreign reserves. Besides generating inflation it also increased our reliance on the US$ which we are already trapped. We are unable to rid our reliance on using the US$ for trade and foreign exchange reserves. This is because for all we know the USD is on the last leg on being the dominant currency of trade and foreign reserve of choice.
Recently, De-dollarization or reduced significance of the dollar is gaining momentum as Western countries started with Britain and now followed by Germany, France, Luxembourg and Italy announced that they are joining the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) as founding members. AIIB rivals the World Bank and the IMF in form and functions and thus with some of the world biggest economies becoming members, the significance of the world institutions are at stake. What this means to the Dollar?
It’s role as a currency of choice for Foreign Reserve and pricing for most commodities will be significantly reduced. It’s value is going to plummet and dominance will come to an end. Thus, soon we will see the rise of the Yuan as the next Gold-backed Reserve Currency if not one of the Reserve Currencies. Further evidence on the Dollar over-valuation can be shown by the following chart.
Below is the Dollar index chart.

As can be seen the USD went parabolic since July last year and that coincides with the plunge in the Global Oil Price. It appreciated by more than 25% since last year. Needless to say, anything that goes up parabolic will end in a crash. So, I reckon that the coming plunge in the USD will have drastic repercussions to the Global economy as many nations are now engaging in competitive currency and interest rate devaluations.
Back to our discussion on how the balance of payment works and relates to the foreign exchange reserve.
What is Balance of Payments?
A country can only increase the size of its foreign reserve when it is running a balance of payment surplus. What exactly is the Balance of Payments? To illustrate let me present you below with the table of Malaysia’s Balance of Payment from 2009 to 2012 in summary form.

At first look it may be difficult for a layman to understand the concept of a country’s balance of payment. All they read from the media mainly concerns whether a country is running a balance of payment deficit or surplus. Hence, they would not have a clue on how a surplus or deficit relates to a country’s international transaction and payment flows. But fear not, it is not as complex as it seems. Let me present you a quick introduction to the concept of Balance of Payments. Basically, it consist three parts namely the Current Account, Capital Account and the Statistical Discrepancies.
The Current Account deals with the import and export of goods and services. It records transaction arising from trade in goods and services, income accruing and transfers of residents in one country to residents of another.
The Capital Account deals with the import and export of assets. It records the transactions related to international movement of financial assets.
The Statistical Discrepancies or Error and Omissions deal with the problem of data accuracy and timing.
In practice the Current Account and Capital Account should balance. This is because the surplus in the current account should match the deficit in the capital account and vice versa. However, sometimes there might be problems with the data due to delay and timing. To force the current and capital account into balance, the statistical discrepancy is brought into the equation.
Or put it in equation form,
Current A/C + Capital A/C + Statistical Discrepancy = 0
However if you delve deeper into our Balance of Payment above, you will be able to detect not only irregularities in their classifications but also ill conceive government policies on debt management.
Few things to Note
Firstly, our Government did not reduce our debts. From above table, it shows our country is running balance of payment surpluses in three out of the four years. There are two things a country can do when it is running a balance of payment surplus. One, it can add on to its foreign reserves and the other is to retire some of its debts. Malaysia obviously opted for the first option and that is to add to its foreign reserves. In 2010 our foreign reserves dropped to RM 328,649 million due to the absorption of the RM 2,628 million deficits. Then in 2011 it soared to RM 423,331 million due to the budget surplus of RM 94,682 million in 2011. Again in 2012, it went up to RM 427,204 million when we have a budget surplus of RM 3,873 million.
Why are we not using our large reserves to reduce some of our debts or finance our Government expenditure with the surplus? Why our Government implemented austerity measures such reducing subsidies and increasing taxes (GST) which only burden the people?
Secondly, why such a huge Statistical Discrepancies? As you can notice the main objective of the Statistical Discrepancies is to force balance the account due to the delay or accuracy of the respective accounts. Normally these are only minor adjustments and don’t run into tens of billions. If the discrepancy is huge then there should be some serious problems with our data accuracy and hence suspicion. Take for example during 2010 the Statistical Discrepancy stood at RM 70.7 billion which is almost 80% of our Balance of Current Account? Similarly, during 2011 (RM 24.5 billion) and also in 2012 (RM 33.6 billion). One explanation will be due to the large hidden capital flows. Why are there such a large discrepancy?
The only explanation is that there are people secretly diverting funds out of our country or in other words money laundering. The following chart shows the illicit funds flowing out from Malaysia.

Source : Global Financial Integrity
As seen from the data derived from Global Financial Integrity, a U.S based financial watchdog, there has been a constant rise in illicit funds going out of Malaysia. The worst is during 2010 where US$ 64.3 billion flowed out. As its name suggest ‘Discrepancy’, hence it is very difficult to keep track of the financial transaction flows between our residents and foreigners.
Thirdly, there is a massive Capital Outflow from Malaysia to foreign countries. From 2009 till 2012 it totaled RM 168 billion. It is obvious that there is not a single private Malaysian company can afford to invest that much abroad as indicated in the Outward Foreign Direct Investment. Those are illicit capital outflow from our country.
Wrapping Up
What can be deduced from above is that there is certainly much suspicion on the accuracy of the data presented to us. It raises more questions than answers as to why our statistical discrepancies and capital outflows are way out of normal occurrences.
There is no better explanation other than being used to masked illicit funds transfer out of our country. This also helped contribute to our fast plunging Ringgit and falling reserves in the past year as shown by the graphs below.
The depletion of our foreign reserves from USD 138 billion to USD 112 billion this year has been mainly due to our Bank Negara intervention in the foreign exchange market.
