MOHD ZAIN HAMZAH – HIS CRUSADE FOR JUSTICE

I had in October 11, 2008 posted an article titled, “MOHD ZAIN HAMZAH – A NAME TO REMEMBER”, depicting him as a retired senior police officer with the courage to speak out, for what he believe is the trampling of evidence and a miscarriage of justice by his superiors, against the sacked Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim in the 'Black Eye' incident in 1998. Mohd Zain's superiors that I am referring to are the present Attorney General Gani Patail and IGP Musa Hassan.

If one may recall, Mohd Zain was then the KL CID Chief assigned with the responsibility to fully investigate the 'Black Eye' incident that happened while Anwar Ibrahim was in the care of the police, and Gani Patail and Musa Hassan were members of the prosecuting team in the infamous Anwar Ibrahim's sodomy case that had found him guilty as charged, and a 6 years jail term that followed.

Around July last year, Anwar Ibrahim lodged a police report alleging Gani Patail, Musa Hassan, Mohd Zain and Dr. Abd Rahman Yusof for fabricating several medical reports in the 'Black Eye' incident. The government had directed that the report be investigated by then ACA, and in March this year, the MACC Commissioner Ahmad Said cleared Gani Patail and Musa Hassan of any criminal wrong doing, but had left out Mohd Zain and Dr. Abd Rahman Yusof in a quandary. Parliamentarian Nazri Aziz echoed the same in parliament when asked about the report lodged by Anwar Ibrahim.

Mohd Zain who is convinced that both Gani Patail and Musa Hassan are involved in the fabrication of the medical evidence against Anwar Ibrahim, had in April and May this year submitted two separate appeals to MACC to review the case and the findings i.e. renouncing any criminal wrong doing on the part of Gani Patail and Musa Hassan.

It was about the same period in April this year, at a time when Mohd Zain submitted his first appeal to MACC, that a bankruptcy notice was served to him by the court. He strongly believe that the bankruptcy notice was timed to discredit him, as he stands to be an important witness (should he be summoned) in the up-coming Anwar Ibrahim's trial for his 'second sodomy' scheduled in July this year, where Anwar Ibrahim is expected to raise the 'Black Eye' incident again.

I have known Mohd Zain back in the early 80's while he was serving in Kangar, Perlis; and with me in Alor Setar, Kedah. We met on several occasion after both of us have retired, and I was honoured to have been invited to attend a wedding at his home in Ulu Langat several years ago.

I am not here to judge whether Mohd Zain is also a party to the wrong doings of his former superiors or otherwise, but I stand resolutely by him solely for his courage to speak out against the blatant abuse of power by those who claim to be the guardians of law and justice. So much of negativities has been said about the judiciary and the police force, and this case will be a serious test and judge to what is perceived by many, and in particular by Mohd Zain, as the wrong doings of Gani Patail and Musa Hassan

Indonesian model tells of escape from 'abusive' Malaysian prince
A teenage US-Indonesian model has returned to her family in Indonesia with tales of abuse, rape and torture at the hands of a Malaysian prince, saying she had escaped his guards at a Singapore hotel.
Manohara Odelia Pinot, 17, told reporters she was treated like a sex slave after her marriage last year to Tengku Temenggong Mohammad Fakhry, the prince of Malaysia's Kelantan state.
Her mother, Daisy Fajarina, said she would press charges against the 31-year-old prince, and blamed the Malaysian and Indonesian governments for trying to cover up the alleged abuse.
"Manohara has suffered physical abuse. She's got several razor cuts on her chest," Fajarina told AFP on Monday.
The young woman -- a well-known socialite in Jakarta -- said her life at the royal palace had involved a "daily routine" of rape, abuse, torture and occasional drug injections that made her vomit blood.
She said she was usually held under guard in her bedroom at the palace and was injected with tranquilisers whenever she complained.
"I am still traumatised by all that happened and it has left an impact on me," she told reporters in Jakarta on Sunday, after escaping the royal family during a trip to Singapore over the weekend.
"Sexual abuse and sexual harassment were like a daily routine for me, and he did that every time I did not want to have sexual intercourse," she said, according to The Jakarta Globe daily.
"I could never think a normal man could do such things," she said, adding: "Some parts of my body were cut by a razor."
"I've been treated like an animal. I'm like his property and I was in his room and whenever he wants to play with me he just goes into the room and plays with me. I'm like an object."
The teenager -- whose fairy-tale wedding to a prince captured the imagination of Indonesia -- said she would be tortured if she did not appear to be happy when she attended social functions with Fakhry.
She said she secretly called Singaporean police and pleaded for help after the royal family took her to Singapore when they accompanied Fakhry's father, Sultan Ismail Petra Shah II, for medical treatment.
"The police told Fakhry that he would be held in jail if he did not let me go. No one could force me against my will in Singapore and I knew I had a chance to escape," she said.
Singaporean police have refused to comment on Manohara's allegations.
The Detikcom news website in Indonesia quoted a '"friend" of the prince as saying the ex-model was allowed to leave voluntarily and blamed her mother for influencing her to make up stories about him.
The friend, Mohd Soberi Shafii, said she should be examined by a "neutral doctor in Australia, Singapore or London" to support her allegations.
The model once voted as being among Indonesia's "100 Precious Women" blasted the Indonesian embassy in Malaysia, saying: "They made it worse by telling lies, saying that I was fine while I was suffering in Kelantan."
A spokesman for the Indonesian foreign ministry insisted the embassy had done everything it could to help Manohara and said the government would assist her if she wanted to file charges against her husband.
But Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said the government would not investigate the allegations.
"I think this is more of a personal matter. To date we have not been dragged into it, so we want to leave it as it is," he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysia's royal rulers used to enjoy immunity from criminal and civil charges but the privilege was removed in 1993.
There has been no comment from the Kelantan royal family.
Manohara's lawyer, Yuri Darmas, said his client would have a medical examination to back up her allegations of abuse.
"We need one to two days to gather evidence before we file a lawsuit to the Malaysian police," he said, adding that he intended to pursue criminal and civil lawsuits against the prince.
Manohara has already filed for divorce, her mother said.

Our system and country is having an international BAD RECORD, THE DPM CAN JUST PASS IT OFF : "AS A PERSONAL FAMILY MATTER "

WHY ?

Dear Komando,

I agree with you that this incident has place our nation in bad light. But what can the authorities do; now that Pinot is back in Indonesia. She should have launched a police report here and sought police protection (oh...sorry, can our police prove her the security?).
I suppose, the reason why she had to make her escape from Singapore, and not from Malaysia is because she must have doubted the treatment she will get from the Malaysian authorities. If indeed, what she claim is the truth, I then would say that the Prince is no better than a beast.
