KUCHING: The definition of bumiputra status in Peninsular Malaysia,
He said under the Federal Constitution, a child born in the peninsula would be accorded the status as long as one of the parents was a bumiputra.
How can we have three different definition of bumiputra status if we want to promote the 1Malaysia concept?”
We want this to be rectified, and to get
the Federal Government to standardise the definition, he said the basis should be race and not religion.
was asked to comment on the plight of several Sarawakian students who had been denied places in university matriculation programmes because they were of mixed parentage and, therefore, did not enjoy bumiputra status.
said the STU had received similar complaints and that he also knew of students of mixed parentage who were granted bumiputra privileges and scholarships to do their tertiary studies.
Dewan Rakyat Speaker Datuk Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said the Federal Constitution should be streamlined with the Sarawak Constitution, which considers a child a bumiputra if his or her father was one.
Junaidi, whose wife is a Chinese, was concerned that if the matter was not rectified, his children, like many children of mixed parentage, would no longer enjoy bumiputra privileges.
PKR chairman and senior lawyer Baru Bian said he was ready to assist one of the affected students, Marina Undau’s family seek legal redress against the Education Ministry’s decision in rejecting her application to enter a matriculation programme.
Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Alfred Jabu has also pledged to help Undau. (THE STAR)

IT IS 5pm in Bangkok and Dr Porntip Rojanasunan is wrapping up another hectic day in Parliament fighting for funds for Thailand’s Central Institute of Forensic Science, of which she is director.
Dr Death, as she is nicknamed, is surprisingly diminutive. We expected an opinionated, fiery character. Instead she is wraith-like and soft-spoken with firm, kind eyes. It belies her trademark punk look of spiky hair and lips painted the colour of dried blood. Her jeans are tucked into Dr Martens boots laced with large green ribbons.
“This is not right. Why is there selective punishment for different people? Anyone abusing their power, who kill and harm others must be equally punished.”

(Malaysian Mirror) - Two years ago, Malaysians were somewhat entertained to the Lingam tape affair which produced the popular catch-phrase ‘correct, correct, correct’.
Although the video tape, showing prominent lawyer VK Lingam on the phone with a sitting Chief Justice then, became a serious controversy, it nevertheless was value for entertainment too. ‘Correct, correct, correct’, one of Lingam’s habitual expressions, even became a popular mobile ring tone.
The controversy even catapulted the unknown maker of the video, Loh Gwo-Burne, into an overnight sensation when he won the Kelana Jaya parliamentary seat in the March 2008 general election.
Now, ‘Mr Correct, Correct, Correct’ is back in the news. The only difference is that there will be nothing comedic this time.
The Bar Council wants to haul him up for disciplinary charges.
Disciplinary action from the Bar
Malaysiakini quoted Bar Council secretary George Varughese as saying that the hearing will be before the Advocates & Solicitors Disciplinary Board.
"The hearing is still at the planning stages and will be convened soon," he said.
The Advocates & Solicitors Disciplinary Board has binding powers to regulate the conduct of legal professionals. According to Section 93 of the Act, it can "strike off the roll and suspend" those found guilty of misconduct.
The disciplinary hearing is the initial action against Lingam when he was caught in a video recording discussing the appointment of judges over the phone.
According to the report, Varughese also confirmed that some of the witnesses who testified during last year's Royal Commission of Inquiry inquiry have been contacted to testify in the disciplinary hearing, including the three who claimed they had received threats via SMS.
The trio who claimed they were threatened not to testify in the disciplinary hearing were Loh, Lingam's sister Jayanti Govindarajulu Naidu and Lingam's brother Thirunama Karasu.
They filed a police report on the threats yesterday.
EYA LA... KERAJAAN PUN TAK AMBIL APA-APA TINDAKAN,...WALAUPUN SURUHANJAYA SIASATAN DIRAJA TELAH MENDEDAHKAN SEGALA-GALANYA.......... Inisiatif Majlis Peguam patut diberikan pujian....
