GE-13: What’s Going On? Another Berlin Airlift from East Malaysia

by Sarawak Report

This post is also available in: Malay

Charter flights laid on by BN friendly Air Asia from KK and Kuching – with hoards of Indonesian plantation workers on board…..

Down at the airport is where it is happening with the Malaysian elections right now. Secret flights are heading out loaded with cash.

Meanwhile overloaded chartered jets are flying in crowded with foreign workers, suspected of being dragooned into voting for BN.

It would appear that the rats are leaving the sinking ship, while the PM is still desperately trying to win this election “at any cost”

Emails from Air Asia & Malaysian Airways expose a desperate PM

Today, emails leaked to the Opposition by staff working at both Air Asia and Malaysian Airways have left Najib Razak desperately exposed [see base of article].

They indicate that while his departing henchmen and rich businessmen have increasingly been losing faith that he can win this election, the PM has been caught red-handed trying to ferry tens of thousands of dubious voters over to KL to influence the outcome!

Staff insiders at Air Asia and Malaysian Airways have just leaked the devastating email interchanges, which lay bare the whole operation with both sets of emails implicating the Prime Minister personally in the extraordinary operation.

‘We need to move 30,000 people over a 3 day period’ – PM needs to know how our plans are going

As his UMNO troops have started to desert in their private jets, can the PM survive this devastating exposure?

Rats leaving the sinking ship?

Because chartered jumbos are not the only unusual traffic that has been raising eyebrows.

Private jets have also been busy as rich Malaysians are getting their money out by whatever means it seems.  One the eye-witness account from air crew came through to Sarawak Report yesterday of:

 “a private plane leaving Subang filled with a collection of luxury bags,and one large gunny sack stuffed with US dollars-estimated value RM 2.5 billion‬. Bags were dropped off by men in suits driving a couple of sliver Mercedeses , number plate “11″

From vote buying to vote flying!

Photographed yesterday at KK airport in Sabah – corroboration of the leaked emails. 20 buses were used to ferry the passengers say eye-witnesses

As for the traffic moving in the other direction, PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim has come out tonight stating that his information is solid that these are foreign workers being ferried to KL to be used as ‘voting fodder’.

PKR have made clear that they believe that the UMNO supporting Election Commission (both the Chairman and deputy were card-carrying UMNO members) are registering them as new voters.

One senior PKR member told Sarawak Report today:

“The National Registration Department which issues I.C.s (Identity Cards) secretly issue these cards to the PM’s Office, which then gets undercover agents to recruit foreign nationals, who get their pictures taken and then superimposed on the I.Cs and then the Election Commission which is in charge of registering voters simply key in the data of these new I.C.s into their system. Voila! New voters!”

And today Najib indeed appears to have been caught red-handed, bringing in dubious workers from the two East Malaysian states to vote BN in marginal seats in peninsular Malaysia.

Major operation of ‘Vote Flying’ – first the coaches to ferry thousands to the East Malaysian airports and then charter flights.

The leaked emails indicate that the Prime Minister has been urgently coordinating the chartering of massive 747s to ship over 40,000 Indonesians or East Malaysians from Kuching and KK, airports, backwaters that normally never see the like of such aircraft.

The incriminating evidence is there in snapshots, emails and aircraft information that are currently going viral on the web.

Both the emails leaked from Air Malaysia and Air Asia indicate that the matter is being coordinated by the Prime Minister’s office.  One from Malaysian Airways makes plain that the chartered planes are to “ferry voters and election workers from BKE and KCH”.

Since when did these sleepy plantation states become packed with poor West Malaysian workers needing charter flights back to KL or indeed East Malaysians, who might be registered in West Malaysia and need to go back to vote?

Pertinent ‘quick question’ from one Malaysian Airways exec – is the airline expected to carry the costs for this favour they are doing the caretaker PM?

Suspicions are now rife that many of these individuals may be foreign plantation workers, doing their masters’ bidding.

Passenger manifest

Illegal!

Meanwhile, the Clean Elections movement Bersih has come out in response to the news condemning ANY form of vote ferrying of this nature as illegal under the constitution.

“PROVIDING flights for voters is a clear breach of the Election Offenses Act, says Bersih’s Ambiga Sreenevasan, a former president of the Bar Council of Malaysia”.

Despite that illegality BN/UMNO have bowed to the weight of the evidence and admitted they are behind the ‘Vote Flying’, claiming they have some sort of justification in ferrying tens of thousands of East Malaysians over to the Peninsular for the election!

Party secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor also said the flights were paid for by “friends” of Barisan Nasional (BN), Reuters reported this evening. He denied the accusation earlier today by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim that the Election Commission (EC) and the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) were involved in an operation to transport more than 40,000 dubious voters from Sabah and Sarawak to key states in the peninsula.[Malaysian Insider]

Malaysian Airlines – ‘Schedule to ferry voters and election workers’ from Kuching to KL

Moreover, while all names are obliterated from the Malaysian Airways emails, the ones from Air Asia show clearly who many of the key writers and recipients of the emails are. They include the Chief Executive Aireen Omar.

See this smoking gun email below from Omar with a second reference to the need to report back to the PM herself!  (full evidence via link is available at base of page)

Can you let me know about flight availability by tomorrow morning as I have to see PM at noon!!!

One wonders how BN has the brass necked cheek to pose as the party of ‘stability’ when it indulges in such grossly provocative acts as this plan to plane and then bus thousands of foreigners to the polling stations of such places as Selangor on Sunday?

Charter planes arriving just before the election and leaving straight after! Is this what BN mean about ‘winning’ back Selangor at any price?

Cooperation from BN’s ‘fixed deposit’ states

And how typical of the two corrupted BN tyrants of East Malaysia, Chief Ministers Taib Mahmud and Musa Aman to cooperate in such a scandalous activity.

According to airport insiders the charters have already started ferrying helpless plantation workers, who do what they are told to do

Both men are exposed up to their necks in graft, with billions in kickbacks firmly labelled against their names.  Therefore both are desperate to do what they can to save Najib who will protect them for as long as they can provide BN the seats he needs to keep power.

40,000 plantations workers on a plane by the weekend to vote in Selangor?  Why not!

Sabah’s Project IC is the direct comparison.  Then UMNO ‘legalised’ foreign nationals to steal the East Malaysian state from its native voters.

Now it appears they are flying those workers over West Malaysia to steal their states too!

Malaysian air crew speaking to journalists at Heathrow airport had this to say Tuesday morning:

Was at Heathrow on Tuesday and met some senior aircrew. They claim that Najib is using MAS old 747s (the ones which were old and replaced by the new A380s) to fly foreigners in from both KK and Kuching…..  there have been several of these flights over the past weeks”[UK journalist].

As per Tony’s email!

The involvement of the Chairman of Air Asia is also plain in this trail of emails.  Tony Fernandez (now world famous as the owner of the relegated QPR Football Club) is the BN client and supposed ‘whizz kid’, who went from nowhere to the head of a major airline in a twinkling of an eye having caught the eye of Mahathir some years back.

He clearly owes his political allies some loyalty:

Air Asia, which is hand in glove with the Malaysian powers that be, needs to come out and explain each of these flights immediately – and the role of the PM in organising them

Today Anwar Ibrahim released this compelling evidence of the ‘vote flying’ in an urgent press statement followed by a release of the evidence that BN are now being forced to struggle to explain.

Get to the airport and photograph the disgraceful activity!

Worrying crowds – Are BN also Buying up Bangaldeshis as their traditional crowd fodder melt away?

Promoting BN, but is he Malay?

There is another issue that has been gaining attention across the blogs.  Concern has grown that BN has been paying a different section of Malaysia’s community of foreign workers to perform another aspect of its election strategy.

This is crowd buying.BN’s oil flushed, timber flushed solution to all its problems for the last 50 years has been “if you need it, buy it”.

And in this election it seems that as it has become harder to buy up their own Malay supporters for the party, they have started to pay poor immigrant cheer leaders to wear their T-shirts and wave their flags.

Meanwhile, the real UMNO troopers are concentrating on getting their money out of town.The level of graft of by the ruling elite, which is currently pouring its money out of KL and into foreign safe havens has been causing even the banking community to feel sickened at the sight, according to insiders who have confided to Sarawak Report.

Follow the money to see what a growing number of panicking UMNO bigwigs think the outcome of this election will be.  Last year as many Malaysians as British nationals bought property in Central London. One told a London estate agent before Christmas:

 ”I will buy any property you have in Central London on your books.  I need to get my money out as there is to be an election in Malaysia soon and the next government may be stricter about people like me taking out money like this!”

But, while BN’s henchmen are starting to run round like disturbed ants, there is one man who is determined that the party should win this coming election and that is the PM Najib Razak, whose pride depends on success.

Who can blame these people if they have been asked by their bosses to wave such flags for a small sum?

And if that means shipping in tens of thousands of foreign illegal voters and putting tens of thousands more into BN T-shirts all to con an election from his own people, then it seems he is prepared to try and carry it off.

But Najib’s actions are being watched by the entire nation now and they are likely to do far more damage than good to his cause of winning this election “at any cost”.

MAY 3, 2013

Ini Kali Lah

Ini adalah yang paling penting semenjak 56 tahun kemerdekaan. Ia adalah masa untuk rakyat Malaysia membentuk Malaysia Baru. Memang benar, negara kita sudah merdeka, tetapi kemerdekaan yang lebih besar adalah kemerdekaan daripada sebuah kerajaan yang zalim di bawah pemerintahan BN.

Menjelang hari-hari terakhir kempen, kita akan dihidangkan dengan insiden-insiden buruk pada hari pengundian, kekecohan semasa pengiraan undi dan pelantikan Perdana Menteri yang baru akan dicemari oleh muslihat kotor BN dan agensi-agensi kerajaan yang mahu merampas kemenangan pilihan raya daripada tangan kita. Anggota keselamatan negara dan agensi yang seharusnya bertanggungjawab untuk melaksanakan tugas mereka secara jujur, bebas dan saksama akan bertindak dengan cara yang sangat berpihak, seterusnya menjadikan pilihan raya ini tidak lagi bebas dan adil.

Namun semangat pengundi Pakatan Rakyat yang berkobar-kobar untuk mengambil alih pemerintahan tidak harus dipadamkan. Semangat pengundi Pakatan Rakyat ini perlu diperkukuhkan lagi dengan kesungguhan yang jitu untuk memastikan bahawa Pakatan Rakyat akan mengambil alih kuasa dan menang dalam pilihan raya umum ke-13.

Jentera Pakatan Rakyat di seluruh negara perlu berusaha keras untuk memastikan kehadiran mengundi yang tinggi. Jika 85 peratus daripada 13.3 juta pengundi keluar mengundi, bermaksud lebih daripada 11 juta rakyat Malaysia mengundi pada hari itu. Setiap undi amat penting. Keluarlah mengundi lebih awal.

Dalam usaha untuk mengurangkan kesan warga asing mengundi secara tidak sah, setiap pengundi Malaysia yang tulen mesti peka dengan persekitaran semasa mengundi. Semua pengundi tulen perlu memerhatikan secara teliti pengundi yang berhampiran mereka di tempat mengundi, berbual dengan mereka dan jika mereka berkelakuan aneh, laporkan segera kepada ejen parti dan pemantau yang berada di pusat mengundi.

Bagi pengundi yang celik teknologi, rakamkan segala yang mencurigakan dan hantarkan segera ke Facebook atau YouTube mereka. Jutaan rakyat Malaysia mesti merakam pengalaman mereka pada hari Ahad ini. Ia merupakan sejarah dalam pembuatan.

Jangan sekali-kali takut dengan ketakutan yang dijaja oleh BN. Menakutkan dan mengancam rakyat Malaysia telah menjadi dasar pilihan raya BN. Untuk 44 tahun, ketakutan yang sering diingatkan adalah tentang rusuhan kaum pada 13 Mei 1969.

Hari ini, dua lagi ancaman baru telah dimomokkan. Pertama, kononnya Bursa Malaysia akan runtuh dan ekonomi akan rosak jika Pakatan Rakayat menang. Kedua, bahawa hudud akan diperkenalkan. Jangan takut dengan ancaman ini kerana berjuta-juta rakyat Malaysia yang akan mengundi untuk membawa Pakatan kuasa akan menyokong Bursa, jika harga menjunam.

Berkenaan hudud, PAS telah menerima bahawa ia hanya sebahagian daripada agenda parti itu, tetapi bersetuju bahawa hudud bukan matlamat Pakatan Rakyat dan tidak mungkin dapat dilaksanakan di negara ini. Majoriti dua pertiga Parlimen diperlukan untuk meminda Perlembagaan Persekutuan untuk melaksanakan hudud, PAS, sedar bahawa mereka tidak boleh mencapainya secara bersendirian. Pas juga menyedari hakikat bahawa mereka perlu akur dengan matlamat bersama Pakatan Rakyat dan mesti bersama-sama dengan Pakatan Rakyat jika mahu mengambil alih kuasa dari BN.

 Jelas, semua ancaman rekaan BN ini adalah dangkal.Untuk mengurangkan kesan-kesan pembelotan dan gejala lompat parti oleh mana-mana ahli parlimen yang tidak berprinsip dan tamak di dalam Pakatan Rakyat, seperti yang berlaku di Sabah pada tahun 1991 dan Perak pada tahun 2009, rakyat Malaysia yang mahukan perubahan mesti memilih jumlah ahli-ahli parlimen Pakatan Rakyat yang mencukupi. Majoriti mudah dicapai apabila 112 kerusi diperolehi daripada 222 kerusi. Tetapi mana-mana kemenangan Pakatan di bawah 130 kerusi tidak memberikan kusyen yang mencukupi jika lompat parti berlaku.

Saya yakin, jika jumlah rakyat Malaysia yang berfikiran waras boleh bertindak seperti ini, sudah pasti kita akan dapat memerintah negara ini dan mengambil alih kuasa daripada Umno dan BN.

Kita akan mempunyai kerajaan persekutuan baru yang akan membawa kita kepada Malaysia Baru:Malaysia yang lebih bebas, plural, liberal di mana semua individu, etnik, kaum dan agama adalah sama dari segi kedudukan dan hak mereka. Kedua, dan lebih penting Merdeka. Semoga Allah SWT memberkati kita dengan memastikan keputusan ini.

Ini Kali Lah!

  1. I wonder if the bus drivers, the policemen, the pilots, the ground and air crews feel anything at all in their heart (diorang ni ada hati perut tak? Biarkan orang asing undi dalam negara sendiri). I feel pity for them.

  2. What additional evidence does the Election Commission to deal with this matter, which is of public interest? Exposure of this attempt to tilt the balance of power back to UMNO-BN will influence voters on May 5. How desperate can they get to ensure victory with a 2/3rd majority. In my years as a voter ( now I can’t vote in Subang Jaya because my name is missing from the electoral list), I have never witnessed something like this. –Din Merican

  3. Doesn’t tony who speaks good english realised he is criminally liable? This is treason against Malaysia. i used to go to KL, jln silang, jln kota, petaling st., where thousands of foreigners linger, many of them walking abt fr one road to another. They were there in Feb 2012, Dec 2012, Jan 2013, Feb 2013 – most of them are filthy, smelly, unwashed. What d hell is happening to M’sia?

  4. I change my mind… they should not just return the billions, throw them into the slammers and throw away the keys….

  5. Political parties used to employ buses to transport their supporters for balik kampong to vote in their various constituencies for elections but now they have become sophisticated by using airplanes as means of transportation. But what other quick means are available to travel across vast distances of open waters besides airplanes? Why bother with transportation of immigrants from across the seas as alledged at great costs and wasting effort & resources if there are so many immigrants here insitu in the peninsula? Doesn’t make sense.

  6. We have so many traitors – this is really alarming!!! All the rich and powerful seem to be traitors!!!

  7. We must work very hard to influence all eligible to go to the polls. The scoundrels must be silenced. All the illegal out flows must be returned to the country. There is a legal case against the culprits. More people are angry with BN for this ,I am sure. Tk to the info providers.

  8. These foreigners voters are not meant for for chinese majority seats like Subang Jaya where pakatan are going to win anyway Read about the seats that are affected in Haris ‘s blog

  9. Dear All,

    Look, how many times must we reiterate ahJibkor is a sick joke. Can’t even get this right! Blardy pokat flur.. Should have brought in the voting fodder much earlier, but didn’t wanna pay for their upkeep.. Now so desperate, until even moth-balled 747 are being used in inclement weather.

    In view of such lackadaisical incompetence, avarice and cowardice, we the Taikors of Taikorland hereby sack the flur and henceforth deem him as an outcast and irredeemable pariah to the depths of Outer Mongolia (aka Mampusia). Kindly sign this communique asap.

    cc: Whoever, Bersih 1.0, 2.0 and so-forth.
    Octo & Sons.
    Captains of Industry and Cronies United (aka 1Malaysia Charity).
    Michelle Yeah and Gnome.
    Tukar Tiub.

  10. 1) First they denied it
    2) Then when the evidence came out, they gave excuse its ILLOGICALLY SUPPORTERS
    3) THEN MOST INCRIMINATING – EC does not investigate the details and JUMP ON THE BAND WAGON TO DENY WRONG DOING.

    The respond is TOO classic UMNO/BN big scandal since time immemorial from BMF, Bank Negara, PKFZ, Scorpene-Altantuya-Deepak/Bala, Cow-gate, etc etc

    Treason. They did it to Sabah for decades now, THIS is a small leap to them..

  11. Bet you these traitors must be gloating away thinking how clever they have been.
    If this is their idea of strategic thinking to winthe war, then it is a pretty sick joke.
    But that has been their modus operandi all along. Conning and cheating and abusing all the institutions of government to get their greasy hands on the loot.
    Mahathir and the rest of the BN thieves must be very proud of themselves.

  12. aliefalfa,
    If you were to use money to skew the democratic system, then you are likely to force the politically-linked tycoons to exercise their power over their weak workers to bid on their liking. 40,000*RM300 = RM12,000,000 ticket cost is a small cost compared to monetary reward easily extracted from crony system. Actually money is the least of the concerned factors for those in the corridor of power. Were there enough politically linked tycoons and helpless workers, foreign or not, flying 4 million people costs only RM1.2 billion. Of course, there are other factors limiting what a would-be dictator in a semi-democratic nation can do.

    One of those factors is the assertiveness of the citizen to demand their democratic right. Every dollar used to dilute our right is an affront to our right, even in the capitalist world.

  13. Et tu Dato? Name missing? My mistake earlier post elsewhere. SJaya has 17000+ new voters. Not 14000. Ferrying voters to vote is practiced even in past GE…but Bolehland has now gone into airlifting dubious voting instant-citizens? God help Msia!

  14. The DCA should investigate these charter flights for Technical Crew working time violation. Secondly the Air Traffic Controllers can provide flight details because all flight plans have to be filed with ATC and DCA. To slow down the flights the Air Traffic Controllers can deny permission to take off or to land and even flight due to congestions at the airport and the air corridor.

  15. Hello Watyhamoorthy of Hindraf,

    Where is your honour and dignity in campaigning for BN. Today i received 4 more SMS from Hindraf asking me to vote for BN. Tell us how many millions did BN give you for the campaign , Use the poor to install an evil regime and get rich in the same process. Anoter MIC clone in the making.

  16. This is my comment and answer to En Ahmadi on May 3rd,
    Dear Ahmadi, my sentiments exactly, never before tactics of deceiving the voters will be introduced before,during and after GE13, it’s so very sad, to know about it, but there’s nothing anyone could do, except, like your advice, to Vote wisely.

  17. CLF,
    I do wonder if Najib lose election, would Najib do the honourable way as what Jim Callaghan did

  18. Name missing from the electoral rolls? Dato it’s not news. I just like to know if you have made a report, a police report or the like.

    So Najib has expanded the massive frauds his father perpetrated in East Malaysia to the Peninsular now? We can’t do much to prevent it until we vote in a new government. So those of you who are still on the list go out to vote May 5th. Tell your neighbors, call your uncles and aunts, cousins and friends to vote and to watch out for suspicious characters at the polling stations and report them to reporters, policemen and EC officers.
    ________________-
    The Police are already inundated with reports. I will go the polling station I last voted in Subang Jaya and check. –Din Merican

  19. If there is no cheating going on, I dare to say it would be a landslide for Pakatan. Yes, I must be over enthusiatic. Well, having experiencing the thrashing of one of the most dislike party especially it’s Maggie who started charging international students tuition fee. It was a payback time…..Hahahaha……can it be a payback time to Najib/BN/UMNO?

  20. “a private plane leaving Subang filled with a collection of luxury bags,and one large gunny sack stuffed with US dollars-estimated value RM 2.5 billion‬. Bags were dropped off by men in suits driving a couple of sliver Mercedeses , number plate “11″, As I know most luxury cars with plate No’s. 11 belongs to Daim, I guess its Toh Puan’s portion or Naemah’s portion that’s being flown out.. Wira too has plate No. 11……..Oouch!!!
