MORE PICS – DAP Ronnie Liu Arrested & Released – Obstructing Police & SJ Officers Sealing Hotel; Investigation of Link to Prostitution Syndicate
MORE PICS – DAP Ronnie Liu Arrested & Released – Obstructing Police & SJ Officers Sealing Hotel;Ridiculous Investigation of Link to Prostitution Syndicate
Malaysiakini even if alerted would have no time to Record the Arrest of DAP CWC member in
Puchong. And the Current Hot news is still on Temple Demolition
It is most unfortunate that Ronnie Liu a tireless worker in the DAP and a CWC member in the process of trying to help to right an injustice had himself arrested but he was released in no time.But to add insult they are also investigating the preposterous notion that he is “linked to a prostitution syndicate”.
When he got word that the Hotel was to be sealed he mustered 30 followers to prevent the sealing. The Spa and the restaurant above were in no way related to the vice activities and were most probably run by other operators.Why deny them the right to operate? How many will be jobless in the meantime when their places of work are sealed and closed until further notice? Isn't this grossly unfair to them?
And do you think the BN Lee Hwa Beng(ABOVE) a SJ council member & a "double agent" would help?
Bear in mind, this is Visit Malaysia Year2007 and when you bring in too many tourists, you just cannot ask them to visit tourist attractions when the sun has set. And what should they do at night? Watch RTM1 & 2 in the hotel rooms? They must be entertained and the GROs do provide a service to keep tourists and locals busy at night.
The Warlords in Subang Jaya Municipal Council as of late had taken a tough stance against entertainment outlets (see Bottom, "haram" places in their eyes) they have agree now to postpone the chasing away of the pubs to the shopping complexes & hotels. They must be flexible and make adjustments to changing circumstances. How can they impose a quota of 40 only for SJ with the lame excuse that it would be difficult to monitor? When a City develops and expands in numbers, the number of licenses granted must also increase in tandem otherwise the existing places will be overcrowded. How can one enjoy a relaxing drink after a hard day's work in such conjested places? ABOVE & BELOW: The police & SJ enforcement officers entering the 3-Star Hotel in Puchong Jaya

DAP Central Committee Member Ronnie Liu was arrested by Police today for allegedly obstructing them from sealing a hotel during an anti vice operation last night.Police said Liu was questioned for trying to stop Police and enforcement officers from sealing the hotel. According to SJ Police Chief ASP Zainal Abdul Rashid (BELOW):
“We have advised and sought his cooperation several times but he refused to move from the spot. We have no choice but to arrest him.He is still in Custody and is being investigated under section 186 of the Penal Code.”
Police released him after questioning and it is not known whether he will be charge. In the incident late last night

Ronnne with 30 followers had attempted to stop the Police & Subang Jaya Municipal Jayaofficers from sealing a hotel two hours after an anti vice raid at a 3-star Hotel in Puchong Jaya, Selangor. He was detained and Police are investigating whether the DAP CWC is linked to the prostitution syndicate.
Earlier the Police have detained 22 female foreigners who worked as GROs (ABOVE) (Guest Relations Officers) at the Hotel. Police believe the Hotel thrived as a prostitution den based on 2 days of surveillance of the premise.

Saturday November 3, 2007, STAR Reprieve for Subang Jaya pubs
LICENSED pubs in Subang Jaya can continue to operate at their currentpremises, at least until the end of next year.Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) president Adnan Md Ikhsan has confirmed at the latest full board meeting that the pubs can renew their licence and continue with their business in their current premises until the end of next year. Earlier last month, it was ann-ounced that the MPSJ wants to relocate all licensed pubs under its jurisdiction to shopping malls and hotels. Adnan, however, declined to say whether the pubs could continue operating at their existing locations after next year. On the new applicants to start pub business, Adnan said the MPSJ would exercise control, implying that probably no new licence would be issued.He said the existing number of pubs was enough and any new additions would be difficult for the MPSJ to monitor.
“Our quota is only for 40 licences,” Adnan said. On why letters to relocate were only issued to licensed pubs and not the unlicensed ones, Adnan said the council had no information on the illegal pubs. “Sometimes, it's just a perception of the public that a pub has no licence. They don't know what the real situation is,” he said. Councillor Dr Kow Cheong Wei said there were occasions he had received tip-off from the public regarding an unlicensed pub, but on entering, he found that the pub was actually modelled as a restaurant hence there was no requirement for the required licences. Adnan said he welcomed people to provide information if they had facts of unlicensed pubs.
He said such that anyone operating a pub without a licence would be fined a maximum compound of RM25,000 and a court order would be taken. “I ask the councillors to support those that are good. As for those that often disregard the rules, the MPSJ would not hesitate to close them and their quota given to another person,” he said.

This was a possible spin Datuk Nazri was making through the TV station to cushion the public when the Final Panel Results are announced after next Wednesday when the panel is expected to submit a report of the findings.
This preliminary premature finding is rather suspicious. What about the announcement that a copy of the Clip has been sent to HK ACA equivalent for verification? Have they got no results and why based the findings entirely on these so called experts “local experts” whose credentials and records are doubtful? It looks like another BIG FIX if they cannot compare the local opinion with those from the overseas experts. They must reveal the digital forensic methodology and criteria they employed to come to the conclusion that the clip is not authentic?
Is it NOT authentic because it is NOT the original? Like you compare pirated discs with Originals. The ONLY "original" would be the ONLY one residing in the cell phone and it would most probably have been erased by now after 5 years. So actually there is NOoriginal left.The argument they might be using would be on similar lines if they are asked to verify confiscated pirated copies of VCD or DVD disc. They can easily verify fake copies the as any duplication would involve loss in "quality". They should study the tampering of the clip and see if audio & video tracks have been superimposed on and altered. The report might be made public but who would challenge these 2 local experts in their conclusion? Are they going to include copy of the report? My simple analysis using the Video Ulead software on a sample 30 sec of the Lingam Video clip revealed no such tampering or cheating. (See details H E R E)

Tun Ahmad Fairuz's Position Not Discussed At Rulers Meeting
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 1 (Bernama) -- The position of former Chief Justice Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Rahim, whose tenure ended yesterday, was not discussed at the 212th meeting of the Conference of Rulers here today. A spokesman at the office of the Keeper of the Rulers' Seal told Bernama that the issue was not touched on and was not even in the agenda. "What was reported in a newspaper about the rulers discussing his position was merely speculation," he said. (Star was the one suggesting the impossible)
ABOVE & BELOW: PM Abdullah respects Royalty and is on good terms with them and mutually they would not do anything to rock the BN boat. So would all the Royal petitions be in vain?
Ahmad Fairuz, who turned 66 yesterday, the mandatory retirement age for judges as stated in the Federal Constitution, was appointed as Chief Justice on March 17, 2003. Today's meeting was held at the Istana Negara and was chaired by Sultan Azlan Shah of Perak. The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin attended the meeting accompanied by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.The Keeper of the Rulers' Seal Engku Tan Sri Ibrahim Engku Ngah in a statement said the meeting discussed matters on defence, security, the current economic situation and education.

At the end of the meeting, Abdullah was presented a cake to mark his fourth anniversary as Prime Minister.

Abdullah must be mindful that a greater constitutional crisis than the one that will erupt with the extension of Ahmad Fairuz’ term as Chief Justice from Nov. 1 will be the appointment of an UMNO Chief Justice, namely Tan Sri Zaki Azmi
(Parliament, Saturday): There is growing concern that to avoid a grave constitutional crisis that will erupt with the extension of Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim as Chief Justice after Nov. 1, the country may be plunged to another equally grave crisis of confidence in the independence and integrity of the judiciary – the appointment of an UMNO Chief Justice for the first time in the 50-year history of Malaysia, namely Tan Sri Zaki Tun Azmi.
The appointment of Zaki as Federal Court Judge in early September, which involved an unprecedented “triple jump” without first serving as judge of High Court and Court of Appeal, was the first in the nation’s 50-year history, raising the question whether the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was paving the way to appoint Zaki as a future Chief Justice.
Nobody questions the legal qualifications and capabilities of Zaki but there are many legitimate questions as to the suitability of his judicial appointment, in particular as Chief Justice.Is the country going to start the second half-century of nationhood with an UMNO Chief Justice, when for five decades, there had never been any judge who could be said to be an UMNO judge in terms of his party membership and his long services to UMNO as a political party.
For the past 22 years, Zaki was an active UMNO member and lawyer, representing UMNO in many controversial and even dubious UMNO cases, culminating variously as head of UMNO legal advisor; head of UMNO disciplinary committee panel and in 2001 as Deputy Chairman of UMNO Disciplinary Board of Appeal.
Is Zaki still an UMNO member? If he had resigned from UMNO, when did he resign from UMNO? Even if Zaki had resigned from UMNO, at a time when the greatest challenge of the judiciary is to restore national and international confidence in the independence and integrity of the judiciary after two decades of erosion and devastation, will Zaki’s further elevation in the judiciary to become the Chief Justice be conducive to such an uphill task which had been the bane of Malaysia’s world standing and international competitiveness?
After his appointment to the Federal Court in early September, Zaki said that he was given less than 24 hours to decide whether he would accept the appointment, and he described it as a “national service”. What is even more important is whether public perception, both national and international, will regard it more as “UMNO service” rather than “national service”. In the circumstances, it would be a major faux pas of the Prime Minister to plunge the country from one judicial crisis of confidence to another, re-opening anew the urgency for the establishment of a Judicial Appointments and Promotions Commission to remove extraneous considerations and factors in judicial appointments which could only undermine public confidence in the judiciary.

Cops record statements from Bar Council officials
PUTRAJAYA (Nov 1, 2007): The police today recorded the statement from Bar Council office bearers on the 'Walk for Justice' the latter organised on Sept 26.
Bar Council chairwoman Ambiga Sreenevasan, vice-president Ragunath Kesavan and secretary Lim Chee Wee had their statement recorded in the Putrajaya district police headquarters this afternoon. This was the second time they were asked to give their statement. On Oct 23, the three had declined to give their statement as the police had failed to present them with a copy of the first information report, which should contain information on the alleged offence they were being investigated for, the name of the complainants, and the date and number of the police report. Met after the 45-minute meeting with the police, Ambiga said they were informed this time that the investigation was related to assembly without police permit, under Article 27 of the Police Act. "Our lawyers were officially notified by the officers that the previous request for information and first information report were rejected after obtaining advice from the DPP (deputy public prosecutor). "No further details on the nature of the offence were given to us apart from the general statement that we are being investigated under Article 27 of the Police Act," she told reporters. She declined to give more details on the statement.
Putrajaya CID chief ASP M. Gunalan, who is conducting the investigation, said the investigation paper would be referred to the DPP later to decide on the next course of action. Ambiga was represented by Sulaiman Abdullah, while Ragunath and Lim were represented by M. Puravalen and Cheow Wee respectively. At the "Walk for Justice", about 2,000 people, half of them lawyers, marched from the Palace of Justice to the Prime Minister's Department in Putrajaya, to hand over a memorandum asking for a Royal Commission to be set up to investigate a video clip allegedly showing a senior lawyer brokering the appointment of judges with a senior judge.

Individual Who Distributed Nurin's Autopsy Pictures Identified
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 3 (Bernama) -- The identity of the individual responsible for distributing the autopsy pictures of murdered Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, eight, has been identified and will be charged in court soon. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan who disclosed this Friday night, said the investigation had been completed. "We have identified the person and he will be charged soon. We will inform the media when we are ready to charge him," he told reporters after a police Hari Raya Aidilfitri open house at the Police Training Centre here.He said the police could not provide more details on the individual as investigations into Nurin's murder case were still ongoing. The autopsy pictures of Nurin, a Year Two pupil of Sekolah Kebangsaan Desa Setapak who went missing in August and whose dead body was found stuffed in a sports bag in the PJS area on Sept 20, were widely distributed through the Internet last month. Meanwhile, on the suspension of Datuk Ramli Yusuff as the Commercial Crime Investigation director at Bukit Aman, Musa said it was a normal government procedure and police disciplinary action.
"Any civil servant who is charged in court will face the same action," he said, adding that the suspension would not affect the image of the police force. When asked on Ramli's replacement, Musa said it was too early to decide and had not been discussed at any meeting. In the Session's Court here Thursday, the Anti-Corruption Agency charged Ramli with three counts of failing to fully disclose his assets and unlawfulling engaging in business while being a public servant. Ramli, 55, who pleaded not guilty to the charges, was freed on bail of RM20,000 with one surety while waiting for his trial on Jan 15 next year.

MIC to the rescue? = == = == = == = == = Back to the post It is interesting to observe time after time when we see suspects being arrested and produced in courts (for whatever crimes they have been allegedly to have committed) , they would try to cover up and hide their faces. For what?- the Fear & Shame?. And if the suspects are police personnel themselves, they would get the extra help and are properly covered up not to expose the faces. Look at the two hooded accused we see daily in the Altantuya Murder Trial and the cover up of the one below, 4 officers escorting this Police detective with the extra T-shirt thrown in and all making sure it would not drop off to expose his shameful face of asking for RM1000 to settle (kow tim, the Cantonese colloquial dialect) a case.
But surprising the bigger the shots are, they are not too fearful & shameful to cover up (but deep down, the humiliation is there). No way can cover themselves so they have to put up brave faces and try to face the music; good examples our RM27M Top Cop Datuk Ramli and the high profile Abdul Razak Baginda.
Now why is this so? Maybe they have this added confidence, they believe that they have done “nothing wrong and not involved” and were caught only on technicalities. With big ringgit at hand, their lawyers can surely “kow dim” their problems. In cases of murder, it is very simple, just cast some doubts on the evidence, mention the exhibits are exposed, not guarded and opened to “tempering” and the Judge can fix it saying it has not been proved “beyond reasonable doubts”and “no concrete evidence” he actually do it.No prima facie case and this is how you can get away with murder in the good old days of the exited CJ and even now.
So fear & shame is a big deterrent and the police & ACA should adopt this Motto. “Take Not for the Fear & Shame” And in our own way, we can adapt it to our properties.In our hand phone, in our possessions and even in books etc, if there spaces available, we can add in “Take not for the Fear & Shame” adding “Return it to the Owner” and don’t forget to include a contact number or in the case of a book evenyou name & address.

SEREMBAN, Nov 2 (Bernama) -- Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Datuk Ramli Yusuff, who is charged with failing to make full disclosure of his assets and unlawful involvement in business, may be suspended pending disposal of the court case.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohd Najib Abd Aziz (ABOVE) said the the normal procedure under the General Orders would be to suspend a policeman facing court action."After the court case has been settled, it is up to the police force to decide on the action against Ramli," he told reporters during a visit, prior to his retirement on Nov 13, to the Negeri Sembilan police contingent headquarters here today. He said the action taken against Ramli and allegations of corruption hurled at IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan would not affect the morale of the police, although it dented the image of the force.
Yesterday, Ramli was charged in the Sessions Court in Kuala Lumpur with two counts of failing to disclose information on his assets comprising two office units and 154,000 units of shares, and another for involvement in business while being a public servant.

Greed has no limits to many.How many would have realized by now that:
All worldly pursuits end in sorrow; Acquisitions end in dispersion; Buildings in destruction; Meetings in separation; Births in deaths?
Knowing this, one should from the very first, renounce acquisition and heaping up, building, meeting; and be faithful to the commands of an eminent guru; set about realizing the Truth (which has no birth or death).That alone is the best path in life and most religious people have followed it.
No one is a saint when one is born.When we are born into this world of Maya, of illusion, we have to undergo all the procedures of a human being.We have to be ignorant again; we have to suffer all these illusionary desires, and then the disappointment of the unfulfilled desires and all those kind of things until one day we have enough of it and say, “Okay, that’s it. Now, whatever I have I have; if I don’t, I don’t.That’s the time you reached complete liberation.You liberate yourself from all the problems, from your own self made prison and also your own learned prejudices about who you are?

“You create your reality wherever you are and there is no exception”. And now, if you realize that you create your physical reality through your OWN thoughts and desires, then you have learned the MOST important aspect of reality

On the first charge of non-disclosure of assets under Section 32(2) of the Anti-Corruption Act 1997, Ramli allegedly failed to declare the ownership of two lots of business suites in the Megan Avenue II building located on Jalan Yap Kwan Seng here.The value of the two office units, during acquirement, was worth RM1, 032, 840 million and was held by two directors of Bonus Circle Sdn Bhd who were named as Ramli’s elder and younger sisters, Rohmah@ Hasmah Yusoff and Roslina respectively.
On the second charge, Ramli allegedly failed to declare the ownership of 154,000 units of shares in Permaju Industries Sdn Bhd. The two offences were allegedly committed by Ramli at the ACA headquarters in Putrajaya on Sept 17, for failing to adhere to the written notice, under Setion 32(1)(a) of the Anti-Corruption Act, which requires him to declare in writing and under oath, on assets, movable or immovable, owned by him or which he had interest in and also, all sources of income. The third, a summons charge, alleged that Ramli, on April 25, 2006, being a public servant, a Commissioner of Police holding the position of the director of the Commercial Crimes Investigations Department in Bukit Aman had flouted the Regulation 5(1)(a) of the Public Servants Rules and Regulations (Amendment) 2002 which prohibited him from being involved in business.

He was alleged to have taken part in business by being involved in Kinsajaya Sdn Bhd as a director of the company, and had thus committed an offence under Section 168 of the Penal Code. After the first two charges were read to him by the court interpreter, Ramli claimed trial.
ACA Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Mohd Jazamuddin Ahmad Nawawi (ABOVE) told judge S.M.Komathy Suppiah the prosecution would be calling 20 witnesses and requested for one-week for the trial to kick-off. He said since the offences were bailable, they had no objections to allow Ramli to go overseas to perform "umrah" but requested that he hand over his passport once he returns. Ramli’s lawyer, Datuk K.Kumaraendran appealed for Ramli’s passport not to be impounded by the court.
"He is the third highest ranking police, the director of the Commercial Crimes Investigations Department and has been in the force for 38 years. His entire career hangs in jeopardy because of these charges. " It has cast a shadow on his character as a senior police officer. (The) accused intends to restore his good name and this is sufficient reason for him to appear in court and clear his name," Kumarendran told the court.He objected to the application for Ramli’s passport to be surrendered to the court, saying such a move was additional security for someone who might abscond, and there was no evidence to suggest that Ramli is about to flee the charge. Kumaraendran said being a senior police officer, there was no chance of Ramli absconding and appealed for the court to allow Ramli to stand on his personal bond to attend the hearing. He added that Ramli, who is about to perform the "umrah" overseas was also scheduled to accompany the Sultan of Kelantan in the pilgrimage.
Mohd Jazamuddin said Ramli should be no different from any other man-on-the-street and the application for his passport to be impounded by the court applies to everyone else. He said the prosecution had no objection to Ramli being allowed to perform the "umrah" but once he returns the passport has to be surrendered to the court. Kumaraendran argued that Ramli had been very cooperative with the ACA and had gone to their headquarters after being told to for his statement to be recorded, only to be charged instead. He applied for Ramli to be released on his personal bond, but Komathy rejected the application.
"Datuk Ramli, you can keep your passport," said Komathy before setting bail at RM20,000 and fixing Jan 15 to 18 for the case to be heard. Ramli, who was in the dock when the two charges were read out to him, then stepped out when the summons charge was read to him and claimed trial.Mohd Jazamuddin said the prosecution will be calling 15 witnesses and asked for an early date.Kumaraendran said he had to look at the charge in detail as he was not privy to some of the details earlier and that his defence team might seek a joint-trial date for the three charges. Jazamuddin said they were not looking at a joint-trial but agreed for the third charge to be mentioned on the dates fixed earlier, on Jan 15.
Also present in court today were Ramli’s wife, sessions court 3 judge Datuk Anita Harun and lawyer Rosli Dahlan who was recently charged in court for failing to declare his assets in connection with the investigations into Ramli by the ACA. It is learnt Rosli had attempted to represent Ramli but had to disqualify himself from doing so by the ACA. Besides Anita and Roslan, others believed to be Ramli’s sisters and relatives, friends and police officers in plain clothes were in court to lend moral support to Ramli.
Kumaraendran was assisted by Datuk C. Vijaya Kumar and Harvinderjit Singh while Zulkarnain Hassan assisted Mohd Jazamuddin. Ramli’s bail was posted by a friend, businessman Datuk Roger Tan.

Malaysia's No. 3 policeman arrested, charged with corruption By JULIA ZAPPEI,Associated Press Writer AP - Friday, November 2 KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - One of Malaysia's top ranked police officers was arrested and charged with corruption Thursday for allegedly concealing massive wealth _ a scandal likely to further tarnish. Ramli Yusoff, director of the Commercial Crime Investigation Department, was charged with failing to reveal that he owned property worth about 1 million ringgit (US$300,000; �200,000) and 154,000 shares of unspecified value in a manufacturing firm. It is not known how much the shares are worth. If convicted he faces up to 20 years in jail.
The country's third-highest ranking police officer, Ramli was also charged with breaching government employee rules by being the director of a separate company, a charge punishable by up to two years in jail. Ramli, the country's third-highest ranking police officer, was freed on 20,000 ringgit bail (US$5,700; �4,000). The trial is scheduled to start Jan. 15. He pleaded innocent to the charges in court and claimed he was a victim of the Anti-Corruption Agency, which investigated him. He also accused the police force of failing to back him up. The ACA said he is the most senior police officer ever charged with corruption in independent Malaysia's history. Ramli, 55, had stunned the police force by holding a news conference Tuesday, when he told reporters he was being investigated for allegedly concealing assets worth 27 million ringgit (US$8.1 million; �5.6 million). His prosecution will help bolster Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's pledge to reduce corruption. However, critics say that since taking power in 2003, his efforts have shown scant success, with few major arrests or convictions.
Ramli's lawyer, K. Kumarendran, said his client believes he is being used to create the impression that Malaysia has been taking serious steps against corruption. "The current charge has cast a shadow on his character and credibility as a respectable senior officer," the lawyer told the court, adding that Ramli's 38-year career in the Royal Malaysian Police was now in jeopardy.
The Star daily said in an editorial Thursday the case exposed an unprecedented level of enmity within Malaysia's police force. "No one can deny the talk of disunity within the top brass of the force," the paper said. "Still, the power play is somewhat scary, if not macabre, to most Malaysians who have never witnessed such open tension within the police force." Malaysia's more than 90,000-member police force has long suffered a reputation for bribery, inefficiency and failure to respect human rights.d force.

RAHMAN DAROS and MOHD YAAKOB YUSOF, MM, Nov 01 07
FEDERAL Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Datuk Ramli Yusuff had not flouted any regulations by holding a Press conference on Tuesday at his Bukit Perdana offi ce without informing Bukit Aman or the Inspector General of Police, Tan Sri Musa Hassan. A senior Bukit Aman officer, in confirming that Ramli had not notified the headquarters of his intention to hold the Press conference, said while Ramli had not committed any breach of the regulations, it was peculiar as the Press conference was personal in nature, but was conducted at his office in his capacity as the commercial crime director.
“As the head of the commercial crime department, he has the right to hold Press conferences. However, these are normally related to official duties.” The official said Musa, who had been quoted by an English daily as saying that he had not been informed of Ramli’s Press conference, had not instructed Ramli to explain his actions. The Malay Mail, however, learnt that media reports on the Press conference held by Ramli had been compiled. It could not be immediately ascertained why this was done. Musa, when contacted late last night, declined comment. “I have nothing to say.”
Ramli was also quoted by Bernama as questioning the motive of the Anti-Corruption Agency in interrogating his two sisters in Putrajaya and Kota Baru yesterday evening. Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Nazri Aziz (ABOVE) yesterday criticised Ramli’s decision to hold the Press conference. He said Ramli should not have fought the case in the media but instead, in the court of law. At the Press conference, also attended by officers from his division, Ramli had, among others, admitted that he was the officer implicated in the ACA probe looking into how he had allegedly amassed millions of ringgit in assets. He lambasted the ACA, accusing it of wrongdoing for leaking details of its investigation, saying that it is an offence under Section 21 (4) of the Anti-Corruption Agency Act. Ramli also replied to the allegations levelled against him, including his becoming a shareholder cum director of a company in Sabah, and the alleged abuse of power concerning the detention and banishment of a businessman. On the allegation that he had amassed RM27 million, Ramli denied owning that amount, saying that it was exaggerated. Ramli said he had made an official declaration to the ACA on his assets. Ramli’s younger sister Roslina Yusuff, 42, was questioned for three hours at ACA headquarters in Putrajaya yesterday.
