If you are a regular reader of the mainstream press, you will learn that corruption and crime are well under control in Malaysia. The government has put in place some wonderful initiatives that are documenting good progress in our fight against corruption and crime. If you believe the government, that is! Of course, if you are as enlightened as I – you will know by now that corruption has worsened – if you don’t know, please read my blog posting dated December 02, 2011. Likewise, with crime – I maintain that it is not getting any better.

I am saying this again because only this morning, I read the advisory notice that is posted since November 29, 2011 on Vine – the Sunway Education Intranet. The Security Department of Sunway Campus is notifying all students and staff that there have been cases of snatch thieves and robberies “over the last few weeks involving pedestrians around the vicinity of our University Campus”. Of course, it is comforting to note that the Sunway Group Security (above photo) has increased the frequency of the patrolling – the fact, is, we must remain vigilant to the possibility of crime happening right at our doorstep.

A Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) MP has warned Prime Minister Najib Razak not to delay setting up the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to investigate claims that citizenship was given to foreigners in exchange for their votes. Sepanggar MP Eric Majimbun said Najib must resolve the long standing issue of the almost two million illegal immigrants in Sabah, their citizenship and Project IC (read more about Project IC in my blog posting dated October 02, 2011 – an alleged strategy to change the electoral composition of the state along communal lines).

“Those culprits who are involved in Project IC should be brought to justice according to the existing laws, as these people are the traitors of the country and Sabah in particular,” he said. I agree with him – to permit the next general election to be called without investigating the allegations would be perpetuating a fraud. Sabahans are being short-changed!
