PAS Youth to meet Agong on ‘Taib as head of state’

Farah Noor Samat 

PAS Youth will seek an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to protest the widely reported speculation that Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud will replace Abang Muhammad Salahuddin Abang Barieng as Sarawak’s Yang di-Pertua Negeri.

PAS Youth chief Suhaizan Kaiat (left) said today this followed reports in the mass media that Taib would resign as chief minister by Feb 28, when Abang Muhammad is due to retire.

“We take the speculations very seriously, as Taib has been accused of corruption and abuse of power.

“PAS Youth will send a memorandum to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to urge further investigations and that he Taib charged.

“We will also meet with palace representatives to seek an audience with the Agong to urge His Majesty to reconsider and not to appoint (Taib) as Yang di-Pertua Negeri,” Suhaizan told a press conference this morning.

He added that Taib’s resignation would also be the best time for the MACC to reopen investigation papers against him, or open new investigations.

“PAS Youth sees that it is as if MACC is prevented from pressing charges and we were told that MACC could not investigate fully because of the power that Taib wields,” he said.

Taib, who has been the chief minister of Sarawak for the last 33 years, is said to have family assets estimated at RM64 billion.

He has been embattled with graft allegations, but has consistently denied any wrongdoing, and at one time even calling the MACC “naughty and dishonest”.

Malay language daily Berita Harian, quoting unnamed sources, reported that Taib is due to announce his resignation at a meeting of his party, PBB, today.

  1. Aiyah ya ya ! What a fantastic theory .These guys can add another gospel to the holy bible after the book of revelation. Whatever it is I would salute Pas Youth Chief for taking the initiative. This seat was once upon a time a seat reserved for upstanding head of state,blessed and cleansed by holy water brewed by Bishop of Canterbury. It has been tainted by the asses of dubious characters and PAS wanted to make sure this seat is not again to be seated by a person of untold bad track records. Anyway, the next corruption free government will have to throw the seat into Sarawak river.

  2. Repost

    Ten reasons why Taib should NOT be appointed Governor (TYT) of Sarawak.

    When you apply for a job, what does your employer look to employ you?
    1. Suitability for the job
    2. Qualifications
    3. Person of good character
    4. Not corrupted
    5. Person of good health
    6. Age
    7. Track record
    8. Mission statement
    9. No pending court case
    10. Illegal and unlawful

    Taib is the most unsuitable person to be appointed as the Governor because his aim is to avoid being hauled to court for all his wrong doings over the last 33 years. But we all know that even a Governor can be prosecuted in the court. He never has the vision to serve the people of Sarawak, except himself and his own family.

    Taib was trained as a lawyer but not in economics. He fancied himself to be the greatest economist Sarawak ever produced and started the SCORE, to score for himself and his families. Sarawak will soon be doomed as the worst polluted place on earth, when all the dirty industries start to operate.

    Taib is possibly linked to at least two unnatural deaths: that of Bruno Manser and Taib’s own aide Ross Boyert. Boyert had fallen out with the Taib family and had sued them in a San Franscisco court to caim compensation from Taib in early 2007. In autumn 2010, Boyert was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel in a rare case of suspected suicide, with a plastic bag tied around his head. Who would commit suicide when he is about to win a court case for compensation?

    Taib is the most corrupted politician Sarawak and Malaysia ever had. He had corrupted in money as well as in power. Please tell Sarawakians how did he get 9-zero (i.e. billions) asset when his salary as a Chief Minister is only 3 zeros (i.e. thousand). How did he amass properties wide across the globe, in London, Australia, Canada, Dubai, US etc…? Anwar had been sentenced to prison for corruption of power. If Taib is not, heaven forbids, charged for corruption of money, he will be guilty of corruption of power, like Anwar. MACC is now investigating these corrupt cases.

    Taib is a dying man. He suffers from heart ailment and cancer. The cancer is well in advanced stage. The marriage of a young energetic and beautiful wife is just a political wanyang kulit. It does not prove that he is young and strong. In fact, he may be here today and gone tomorrow.

    Taib is 78. While the Civil Servants in Sarawak have to retire at 60, why is it that Taib can continue to work after 77? A law for the civil servants and a law for him? You surely do not want a 77 years old dying man to work in your company, and why should he become the Head of State?

    Taib’s mission statements for wanting to become the Head of State, the Governor is to first to protect his ill-gotten and stolen wealth. Two, to plunder somemore. Lately, he was seen to give some people hundreds as tips. But he sure keeps all his BILLIONS.

    Taib’s track record for Sarawak is appalling. He has none of his pet projects being successful in Sarawak. They all wasted billions of Sarawakians money. They are all white-elephant projects: First Silicone, Bitntulu Aluminium project, Bakun Hydro electric Dam, operating at half the capacity, etc… But his track record for himself and his family yet is wonderful. The wife Laila, died the richest unemployed housewife in the world, worth billions. The eldest son, Abu Bekir, is worth at least RM1,390,000,000. Yes, that is Ringgit Malaysia 1.39 billions.

    Taib is liable to be hauled to court. As he is under investigation by MACC and the various organisations in the world, including those in Switzerland where he keeps some of his stolen loots. He will bring disrepute to Sarawak and Malaysia if he is to be charged in court. Taib will be hurled to court. The court case is pending. It’s just a question of time. Do Sarawakians want our TYT or our Governor, or Head of State to be charged in court for stealing or corruption?

    Last but not least, and in fact it is the most important thing against Taib to be appointed as the TYT or Governor or Head of State of Sarawak. The appointment if it goes ahead, will be illegal and unlawful because it contravens the Constitutions of Sarawak. The Constitutions of Sarawak state that the TYT or Governor or the Head of State is the Head of Islam and Muslims in Sarawak. Taib is not a true Muslim. Taib is not a genuine Muslim. He was a Catholic when he was young. Now, he is in fact a well-known hardened pagans who likes to keep companies with bomohs from Indonesia, Thailand, Pakistan, Australia, etc. Every morning he will worship all those ghosts, spirits, zinns before he will have his breakfast and go to his office. Everyone in Sarawak knows that he will consult bomohs for his every move. He has also richly rewarded his bomohs, so much so that all his bomohs are multi-millionaires, just look at bomoh Ahmad Suut, etc, etc…As Agong is the Head of Islam in Malaysia, Agong should not appoint a non-Muslim to be the Head of Islam in Sarawak. It will be terribly wrong and against Islam. We, Muslims in Sarawak will cry!!

    • Najib was linked to Altantuya murder because his bodyguard were involved in her murder. Yet he was appointed PM. Taib was merely accused of corruption and never found guilty of it. He was not a perfect person. His retirement is not a forced one. He chooses to retire when presently he is the most powerful person in Malaysia (on par with Najib) Mark my word, he will be the TYT. Bravo Taib.
