Police to probe Guan Eng for indoctrinating children with anti-GST song


MO,19/3/2018, GEORGE TOWN: Police have opened an investigation paper on Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng over allegation of him indoctrinating children with hate politics at a recent Penang People’s Tuition Centre launching ceremony. State police chief Datuk A. Thaiveegan told the NSTP that the matter was being investigated under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for improper use of network facilities or network services.

Offenders face a maximum RM50,000 fine or one year jail sentence or both. Thaiveegan said Lim will be summoned to have his statement recorded soon. “Yes, we have opened up an investigation paper on the chief minister. “We will record his statement as soon as possible,” he said when asked on police reports lodged by Penang Front Party (PFP) chairman Datuk Patrick Ooi, Penang Surplus Welfare Association chairman Sophian Mohd Zain and 1Malaysia People’s Welfare Association president Mohd Ibrahim A. Siahoo regarding the matter yesterday.

Lim has come under fire for indoctrinating children with hate politics at the event. A 32-second video of Lim dancing while mocking the Goods and Services Tax (GST) policy in an A, B, C song at the launching of the centre at Mutiara Idaman 2 here has gone viral. Meanwhile, netizens, who expressed outrage over the viral video, took to social media to condemn Lim’s “low-class act”, questioning how low could DAP go. They also asked Lim to stop his “nonsense” immediately or face the consequences.

Netizen Kenny Teoh said: “Not cool CM! Children should be left out of politics. Same applies to ruling party who asked school kids to wave their party flags.” Harry Khaw posted: This * tokong (a name given to Lim by his PKR comrade) is getting way out of control, now using kids for his political agenda. Hope police can take action.” As for Max Huan, he said: “LGE this is very sickening of you.”

Netizen Wan Zulkifli also demanded Lim to stop the “nonsense”, noting that “children should be off limits in politics.” Yusop Ibrahim added: “Creating unhealthy hateful culture by instilling this negative feelings into our children. Guan Eng must stop this nonsense immediately. Otherwise police may take action.” Another netizen Tharmendran Sukumaran noted: “Last time they condemn UMNO but now seems they are doing worse.”

His sentiment was echoed by Bunyamin Matnor, who said: “There goes your Putrajaya hope. DAP is getting from bad to worst. Sad.”

Immigration Dept never issued circular to stop stateless children from attending school: Mustafar


MO,12/1/2018, PUTRAJAYA: The Immigration Department has denied issuing a circular preventing stateless children from being enrolled in schools. Its director-general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali clarified that the document, which was mistakenly regarded as a circular, was actually a letter responding to questions from the Education Ministry.

“It was not a circular. Only a letter which the department sent to the ministry to answer some questions. “On Nov 28, last year, the ministry’s Daily School Management Division has sent a letter to us to clarify issues related to status of children. “In the letter, the ministry wanted to know the categories or schedule of children who were born in and outside Malaysia after the Malaysia Day, whether they require a passport or valid travel document to enrol in government schools.

“We later replied on Dec 28, explaining that foreigners born here or abroad are required to have passports; Malaysian children don’t need to have passports while children without citizenship but have applied for it are required to have passports,” he told reporters today. Mustafar stressed that the Immigration Department has nothing to do with matters involving the enrolment of students.

“That is under the Education Ministry’s jurisdiction. Whether the child is stateless or not, only the ministry can solve their enrolment issue,” he said. “In short, stateless children can still attend school as long as they have all the documents needed by the ministry,” he said. According to the Education Ministry’s circular, stateless children are allowed to enrol in any government schools with the conditions that one of the parents is Malaysian, and have obtained a confirmation or acknowledgement letter that the child is under the care of Malaysians.

Mustafar was responding to a report on Jan 9 about a seven-year old girl in Seremban, who was stopped from attending school after clearing registration with the Education Ministry. An English daily reported that the girl’s adoptive parents were believed to have been told by the Immigration Department that she required a passport in order to be enrolled at the school.
