Hishammuddin: Myanmar detainees not refugees

PUTRAJAYA (Oct 18, 2011): Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein has clarified that the 1,000 Myanmar detainees who will be sent back to their country under a recent exchange agreement are not asylum seekers or refugees.

He said he checked their status with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) before finalising the matter with Myanmar Deputy Foreign Minister U Maung Myint yesterday.

“It is not true. They are not asylum seekers. I have talked to the UNHCR and made it clear that we are not going to stop those who are really eligible for refugee status.

“But, at the same time, do not use the refugee status as an excuse to dump so many people who are not eligible in our country. This would create a bigger problem in future,” he said.

Speaking to reporters at the ministry after a weekly meeting with immigration directors here today, Hishammuddin said there are about 94,000 asylum seekers in Malaysia but those listed in the exchange are not under the UNHCR’s watch.

He was responding to concerns raised by NGOs Migrant Care Malaysia and Tenaganita, who claimed that most Myanmar nationals came to Malaysia as refugees or were seeking political asylum, having fled their country to escape persecution.

Yesterday, Hishammuddin said both countries have agreed in principle to exchange detainees – those detained for various immigration related offences - to help reduce congestion at immigration depots.

He said the claims by the NGOs were made based on political considerations, adding the ministry has yet to identify the number of Malaysians currently detained in Myanmar.

He said Myanmar nationals are the third biggest group of foreigners in the country now and Myanmar government’s commitment is important in identifying and deporting those who are not supposed to be here.

“We don’t want to see Malaysia as a transit country or shelter for terrorists, drug smugglers and those taking advantage of the refugee status to do things which are clearly against the law,” he said.

Meanwhile, the UNHCR, in a statement, encouraged all governments to manage migration in a manner that is protection-sensitive towards those who wish to seek asylum.

“This holds true for Malaysia as well. It means that individuals who may be subject to arrest, detention and deportation for immigration offenses have the opportunity to seek asylum and to have their claims considered,” UNHCR spokesman here Yante Ismail said today.

She added that Malaysia cooperates with UNHCR on this issue and allows access to individuals so the agency can determine if they are eligible for asylum.

For those who have legitimate claims, UNHCR seeks their release from detention while their claims are being considered.

“On the matter of deportation, UNHCR reminds all Governments, including Malaysia, that refugees and asylum-seekers should benefit from the fundamental principle of non-refoulement and should not be deported to a country where their human rights might be at risk,” she said.

(Non-refoulement is a principle in refugee law that concerns the protection of refugees from being returned to places where their lives or freedoms could be threatened.)

The Bar Council, meanwhile, said it welcomed the Malaysian-Myanmar immigrant swap, but urged caution.

Its president, Lim Chee Wee, the arrangement must still live up to the highest humanitarian standards.

"Care needs to be taken to ensure that those returned to Myanmar will not in turn be subjected to retributive or punitive action by their own government," he said.

This is because there is no mention of any monitoring mechanism, nor whether any determination has been made by an Office of the UNHCR on whether any of the detainees returned was a genuine asylum seeker.

"This swap must also fulfill the need for a wider and more comprehensive regional mechanism for freedom of movement of nationals from one ASEAN member country to another," he added.

Malaysia Needs To Build Digital Economy As Important Enabler For Transformation - Najib

PUTRAJAYA, Oct 19 (Bernama) -- Malaysia needs a solid push and a clear framework to build a digital economy which will be an important enabler for the country's transformation, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said it was undeniable that the next wave of economic growth would come from the knowledge-based economy, with digital technologies as a key driver of progress.

"As a nation, we are entering a crucial phase, as we are now firmly into the decade in which we must achieve our goal," he said in his opening remarks at the launch of the 23rd MSC Malaysia Implementation Council Meeting, here today.

He said Malaysia was placed 36th out of 70 countries in the Digital Economy Ranking 2010 by the Economist Intelligence Unit, up two places from the 38th spot previously.

"The main contributors were a steady improvement in broadband, mobile and internet connectivity, as well as government support," he added.

Najib said in Asia, Malaysia ranked 6th in the Global Information Technology Report 2009-2010, released by the World Economic Forum, coming behind Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan.

"The report commended Malaysia for its outstanding marks in readiness and usage," he said.

He also said he had announced earlier this year at the Global Science and Innovation Advisory Council Meeting in New York, that Malaysia is in the midst of constructing an innovative digital economy framework, that would serve as an additional enabler for its transformation.

"I then gave the mandate to MDeC to visualise and drive the Digital Malaysia framework, which must foster an ecosystem driven by ICT in targeted aspects of the economy, governance and social interaction, and establish a climate that intensifies innovation, investment and talent growth," he added.

He said it is important that Digital Malaysia is seen as a pillar of the transformation programme.

He said this positioning of Digital Malaysia in the National Transformation Policy, was in order to create a cohesive and holistic approach to the digital nation, as it involves and ultimately benefits multiple stakeholders from the public and private sectors as well as citizen groups.

"We have all gathered here today as leaders in our own respective areas.

"It is imperative that we all lend our voices, give our support and take necessary action to drive the actualisation of a digital economy, which will spur Malaysia's transformation," he added.

Child abuse claims at UK madrassas 'tip of iceberg'

Boy in a madrassa  
Children as young as six have reported abuse
Britain's madrassas have faced more than 400 allegations of physical abuse in the past three years, a BBC investigation has discovered.

But only a tiny number have led to successful prosecutions.

The revelation has led to calls for formal regulation of the schools, attended by more than 250,000 Muslim children every day for Koran lessons.

The chairman of the Mosques and Imams National Advisory Board said he would treat the issue as a matter of urgency.

Leading Muslim figures said families often faced pressure not to go to court or even to make a formal complaint.

A senior prosecutor told the BBC its figures were likely to represent the tip of an iceberg.
Community pressure 
 
BBC Radio 4's File on 4 asked more than 200 local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales how many allegations of physical and sexual abuse had come to light in the past three years.

Mohammed Hanif Khan Mohammed Hanif Khan was "treated like a god" by boys in his care
 
One hundred and ninety-one of them agreed to provide information, disclosing a total of 421 cases of physical abuse. But only 10 of those cases went to court, and the BBC was only able to identify two that led to convictions.

The councils also disclosed 30 allegations of sexual abuse in the Islamic supplementary schools over the past three years, which led to four prosecutions but only one conviction.

The offender in that case was Mohammed Hanif Khan, an imam from Stoke-on-Trent who was imprisoned for 16 years in March this year for raping a 12-year-old boy and sexually assaulting a 15-year-old.

Some local authorities said community pressure had led families to withdraw complaints.

In one physical abuse case in Lambeth, two members of staff at a mosque allegedly attacked children with pencils and a phone cable - but the victims later refused to take the case further.

In Lancashire, police added that children as young as six had reported being punched in the back, slapped, kicked and having their hair pulled.

In several cases, pupils said they were hit with sticks or other implements.
'No justification'
 
The number of cases appeared to be rising - among those councils which broke down the figures by year, there were 89 allegations of physical abuse in 2009, 178 in 2010 and 146 in the first nine months of this year.

With more than half of Britain's 2.5m-strong Muslim population aged 25 or under, the number of madrassas, where children spend about 10 hours each week learning to recite the Koran in Arabic, is also growing rapidly.

We are basically destroying the lives of young people”
Dr Ghayasuddin Siddiqui Muslim Institute
Mohammad Shahid Raza, chairman of the Mosques and Imams National Advisory Board, set up by Muslim organisations to improve standards in mosques, said he would now treat the issue as a matter of urgency.

"These figures are very, very alarming and shocking. There is no justification for such punishments within our mosque schools," he said.

"I'm not sure how wide this unacceptable practice is, but our responsibility is to make those who run the mosques realise we live in a civilised society and this is not acceptable at any cost."

Mr Raza said he wanted the issue dealt with through self-regulation, but there are calls for the government to take action.

Dr Ghayasuddin Siddiqui, founder of the Muslim Institute think tank, said large numbers of unregulated organisations were opening madrassas across the country - most in mosques but some in garages, abandoned pubs or private homes.

Abuse was far too common, he said.

'Reasonable chastisement' "We are basically destroying the lives of young people," he said. "Some kind of system must be put in place to ensure that only teaching takes place there, not sexual or physical abuse."

Nazir Afzal, the chief crown prosecutor for the North West of England, said he believed the BBC's figures represented "a significant underestimate".

"We have a duty to ensure that people feel confident about coming forward," he said.

"If there is one victim there will be more, and therefore it is essential for victims to come forward, for parents to support them and for criminal justice practitioners to take these incidents seriously."
Corporal punishment is legal in religious settings, so long as it does not exceed "reasonable chastisement".

An official report published last year which called for a legal ban on the practice - and which was accepted by the Labour government just before the general election - has not yet led to any action.
The report's author, Sir Roger Singleton, chair of the Independent Safeguard Authority, said the BBC's figures were worrying and should be investigated further:

"That does lend weight to my view that we're not just dealing with isolated instances," he said. "So I would be quite concerned to understand why the allegations have not resulted in a greater number of prosecutions."

The children's minister, Tim Loughton, declined to be interviewed. But in a statement, the Department for Education said Mr Loughton had met Sir Roger and was considering his recommendations.

"The government does not support the use of physical punishment in schools and other children's settings," it said.

Malaysian police free Ugandan sex slaves

Malaysian police said on Tuesday they had rescued 21 Ugandan women from forced prostitution, breaking up what they called the country's first large-scale such ring involving African victims.

The Federal Criminal Investigation Department said in a statement that police freed the women on Friday from four flats in an apartment building on the outskirts of the capital Kuala Lumpur.

The women, aged from 19 to 42, were lured to Malaysia with promises of jobs as maids in homes and hotels but instead were forced into prostitution to pay off their $7,000 travel fees.

The women 'were exploited as sex slaves,' the statement said. 'The victims were threatened physically and mentally if they ran away and report to authorities.'

It added that all of them were brought from Uganda to Malaysia via China.

If they refused sex, they were beaten and raped, a police official in the department said.

'This is the first time we have such a large number of Africans,' said the official, who declined to give his name as he was not authorised to speak publicly about the case.

He added there had been previous cases involving individual African prostitutes but not a syndicate.

Police have also arrested two Ugandan woman believed to be pimps and a Ugandan man believed to be a customer, the department statement said.

The official said police were still investigating how long the ring had been in operation and whether there were more victims.

The penalty for human trafficking in Malaysia is up to 15 years in jail.

Although prostitution is illegal in Muslim-majority Malaysia, it is prevalent especially in urban centres.

No local probe into Maxis-Aircel deal, minister says

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 18 — Malaysia will not investigate T. Ananda Krishnan’s alleged role in a criminal conspiracy involving telco giants Maxis Bhd and India’s Aircel Ltd, the Information, Communications and Culture Ministry said today.

Deputy minister Datuk Joseph Salang said the authorities would not conduct a probe into the matter as Malaysia has been “very transparent” in managing the local telecommunications industry.

“At the moment, it’s only an investigation (by India’s Central Bureau of Investigation),” he told reporters after opening the Communications and Connectivity Futures 2011 forum here.

Earlier this month, authorities in India filed a case against tycoon Ananda (picture) and his trusted executive Ralph Marshall, together with a former Indian minister and his brother, on charges of criminal conspiracy over a controversial deal involving Maxis and Aircel.

Former Indian telecommunications minister Dayadhini Maran and his media mogul brother, Kalainidhi, stand accused of allegedly forcing Aircel founder C. Sivasankaran to sell his stake in the company to Maxis Communications Bhd.

Maxis Communications is said to have bought a 74 per cent stake in Aircel for RM2.5 billion after Dayadhini repeatedly denied licences for the Indian telco’s Dishnet DSL.

India’s CBI has charged Dayadhini for accepting an illegal “quid pro quo” in the form of a share premium invested in his brother’s Sun Direct TV by South Asia Entertainment Holdings, a wholly-owned unit of Ananda’s Astro All Asia Networks Plc.

Maxis denies the allegations and insists the purchase of a 74 per cent stake in Aircel from Sivasankaran was done on a willing buyer, willing seller basis.

The telco giant said Sivasankaran only complained to the CBI after his claims were dismissed by international arbitrators earlier this year, more than five years after the deal was done on December 30, 2005.

Astro has also defended its purchase of 20 per cent of Sun TV as a legitimate transaction between two long-standing business partners who have had dealings since 1996.

‘Nazri got his law wrong on copycat judge’

The Chief Justice has no powers to act against former High Court judge Abdul Malik Ishak, says Karpal Singh.

KUALA LUMPUR: Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nazri Abdul Aziz has got it wrong when he said that only the judiciary, and not the executive, can act on former High Court judge Abdul Malik Ishak who was accused of plagiarism.

Explaining himself, veteran lawyer Karpal Singh, who is also Bukit Gelugor MP said: “As usual Nazri has got his law wrong.

“We’re not saying the executive, but only the Prime Minister can move a motion to have the tribunal set up.

“I don’t know why Nazri is talking about the chief justice.

“I don’t think the CJ can take any action, he has no disciplinary powers and there’s no provision for him to act.”

“I don’t know how Nazri came to his conclusions.”

Karpal, who is also DAP chairman, said Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak can advice the King to establish a royal tribunal to investigate and subsequently take stern disciplinary action against the judge.

The tribunal will be formed under Article 125 of the Federal Constitution, in a similar way it was constituted against former Lord President Mohamed Salleh Abas in 1988.

Quit now Malik

Karpal reiterated his earlier call for Abdul Malik to resign before the Prime Minister intervenes.

“I would call on Abdul Malik to himself resign, I am calling him to resign to save the embarrassment of himself and the country because that involves another country, Singapore.

“He has not denied my allegations, there’s only one way out for him,” Karpal told reporters at the Jalan Duta court complex.

Nazri had previously said the government could not take any action against Abdul Malik as it was a matter for the current judiciary to settle.

“That is for the court to settle, because it is the judiciary, they’re independent… We’re the executive, they’re the judiciary. We cannot interfere.

“It doesn’t matter whether it happened five or three years ago. The current judiciary must decide what to do with that,” he had told FMT.

Karpal today again chastised former law minister Rais Yatim for failing to act in 2000.

“Action should have been taken long ago, this happened way back in 2000. This happened during Rais Yatim’s time.

“He (Rais) said he left in 2004 but didn’t know what happened? But what did he do during 2000 and 2004… he did nothing,” Karpal said.

Rais must explain

Recently when asked about the case, Rais had reportedly said: “According to the case, the matter was handed over to the chief justice who was serving at that time to settle the investigation and (look into) whatever action should be taken.”

Karpal’s response today to Rais’ comment was: “I think the public needs an explanation, otherwise it may seem to be a cover-up.

“I’m not saying there is a cover-up, but that is the public’s impression.”

On Oct 4, 60 Pakatan Rakyat MPs led by Karpal had pushed for a motion to censure Abdul Malik for an alleged offence he committed as a High Court Judge in early 2000.

Abdul Malik was at the time accused of plagiarising a judgment by the-then Singapore High Court judge GP Selvam. The Johor-born Abdul Malik was appointed to the Court of Appeal on July 16, 2007.

NEP reason behind UM’s falling standards

Race-based admission quotas and political interference had caused UM's poor global standing, says a World Bank report.

KUALA LUMPUR: Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim blamed the race-based affirmative actions of the New Economic Policy (NEP) for the dwindling standards of Universiti Malaya (UM).

A recent World Bank study said race-based admission quotas and political interference had caused UM’s poor global standing, something Anwar said was the by-product of the NEP which was only used to enrich Malay cronies.

“UM’s falling ranking is because it does not prioritise academic excellence but racial interests,” the former deputy prime minister told a press conference in his office in Parliament here.

UM, once considered a prestigious institute of higher learning, is now falling way behind in the global ranking while universities from neighbouring countries have taken over.

The World Bank study further stated that Singapore’s decision to prioritise research, keep English as the medium of instruction and maintain a merit-based admissions policy have all contributed to the success of the National University of Singapore.

It further said the NEP made Bumiputeras less competitive as the policy created more scholarships for them, special programmes to facilitate their entry into higher education institutions, and the use of the Malay language in place of English in the entire education system.

“Over time, they secured almost all senior management, administrative, and academic positions,” the study said.

Anwar’s opposition coalition has pushed for a needs-based affirmative action policy to replace the NEP which it says is abused by the Umno-led BN for the benefit of cronies.

This, however, does not mean it rejected the special privileges of the Bumiputeras and said they would continue to defend it as it was enshrined in the Federal Constitution.

“But we must ensure that the excellent Malays in need of help are aided and not just the family members or cronies of Umno-Barisan Nasional,” he said.

The NEP was launched in 1971 to upgrade the socio-economic standards of the Bumiputeras. The policy came to an end in 1990 and was re-introduced as the National Development Policy in 1991.

Liwat II: Ketiadaan tandatangan tak disiasat

Seorang pegawai penyiasat memberitahu Mahkamah Tinggi di Kuala Lumpur hari ini beliau tidak menyiasat kenapa hanya seorang pakar bedah menandatangani laporan perubatan berhubung pemeriksaan perubatan ke atas Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim walaupun dua pakar Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) menjalankan pemeriksaan itu pada hari Anwar ditahan pada 16 Julai, 2008.

NONESuperintendan Judy Blacious Pereira, saksi pematahan kedua pihak pendakwaan dalam perbicaraan kes liwat Anwar berkata beliau berpendapat bahawa penyiasatan itu tidak penting kepada kes itu.

Bagaimanapun, beliau bersetuju dengan peguam utama Anwar, Karpal Singh semasa pemeriksaan balas bahawa kedua-dua doktor, Datuk Dr S Jeyaindran dan Dr Ee Boon Leong, selepas memeriksa Anwar, sepatutnya menandatangani laporan itu untuk ia diterima sebagai eksibit dalam perbicaraan jenayah.

Saksi itu juga memberitahu mahkamah, salinan laporan yang ditandatangani oleh Dr Jeyaindran telah diserahkan kepada seorang lagi peguam bela Anwar, SN Nair, pada 24 Disember, 2009, atas permintaan peguam itu tetapi salinan kedua yang ditandatangani oleh kedua-dua pakar perubatan tidak diserahkan kepada pasukan pembelaan.

Mengenai isu lain yang dibangkitkan oleh Karpal, Supt Judy, yang kini bertugas di bahagian perundangan dan pendakwaan di Ibu Pejabat Polis Persekutuan (Bukit Aman), menegaskan salinan yang diserahkan kepada Nair dicap dengan perkataan "sulit".

azlanSemasa pemeriksaan utama oleh Timbalan Pendakwa Raya Datuk Nordin Hassan, Judy memberitahu mahkamah yang beliau membawa Anwar, diiringi peguamnya R Sivarasa, ke HKL pada kira-kira 8.30 malam, 16 Julai, 2008.

Beliau juga memberitahu mahkamah yang beliau menyerahkan dua dokumen kepada doktor berkenaan -- satu dikenali sebagai Pol 59 (permohonan untuk mengambil sampel) serta surat permohonan untuk melakukan pemeriksaan fizikal ke atas Anwar.

Sementara itu, Dr Jeyaindran, saksi pematahan keempat, memberitahu mahkamah bahawa selain pemeriksaan fizikal, polis juga memintanya dan Dr Ee mengambil sampel calitan pada badan dan sampel darah daripada Anwar untuk menyiapkan penyiasatan mereka.

Dr Jeyaindran berkata beliau telah menjelaskan kepada Anwar tujuan pemeriksaan perubatan itu.

Pada ketika itu, Karpal mencelah dan memohon Hakim Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah untuk meneruskan keterangan itu secara tertutup.

Cincin RM72 juta sudah pulang? - Subky Latif



ADAPUN cincin ajaib yang diposkan kepada isteri Perdana Menteri, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor telah dipulangkan kepada yang mengirim.
Berita yang dibongkar oleh Cikgu Bard, seorang pemimpin ternama PKR betapa adanya cincin yang semahal sekitar RM72 juta dihantar kepada Rosmah secara pos dan terpaksa melalui pemeriksaan kastam itu adalah benar apabila Menteri Nazri Aziz mengesahkannya dalam Parlimen.
Menteri Nazri dalam jawapannya kepada soalan mengenainya di Parlimen memberitahu bahawa cincin itu telah dikembalikan kepada syarikat pemunyanya.
Apabila ia telah dikembalikan kepada sipengirim, bererti pernah dibawa masuk ke negara ini dan dihantar kepada Rosmah di alamatnya.
Bagaimana ia dibawah masuk telah didedahkan oleh Cikgu Bard. Bagaimana ia dipulangkan tidak pula diketahui.
Berita rasmi mengenai cincin ini hanya yang disahkan oleh menteri Nazri di Parlimen. Penjelasan menteri di Parlimen diterima sah. Anggota Parlimen tidak boleh membuat kenyataan palsu di Parlimen. Jika dibuktikan anggota Parlimen membuat kenyataan palsu di Parlimen, maka hilang kelayakannya sebagai anggota Parlimen.
Berita ia sudah dikembalikan itu boleh diterima. Tetapi penapian Rosmah betapa cincin itu dihantar kepadanya sebagai fitnah tidak dipercayai. Orang percaya cincin itu telah dihantar kepadanya dan telah diterimanya.
Jika diadakan penyiasatan telus di Jabatan Kastam, nescaya orang dapat tahu bagaimana cincin itu sampai ke Jabatan Kastam dan cara mana kastam mengendalikannya? Kastam juga tentu dapat menceritakan ke mana cincin itu dihantar selepas diperiksa kastam?
Yang menjadi misteri sekarang ialah bagaimana cincin itu boleh dihantar ke Malaysia dan kepada orang yang dikirim di alamatnya?
Adakah syarikat yang mengirimnya sekadar untuk menunjuknya saja kepada Rosmah?
Adalah tidak munasabah cincin yang semahal itu boleh dihantar begitu saja kalau tiada persetujuan atau permintaan dari orang yang dihantar?
Kalau atas tujuan untuk dipertontonkan kepada orang Malaysia dan kemudian dipulangkan balik, mengapa tidak dihantar kepada Raja Permaisuri Agong yang kedudukan baginda adalah lebih tinggi dari isteri Perdana Menteri?
Rosmah memang terkenal sebagai seorang yang lincah dan diketahui pula suka bermewah serta gemar kepada benda-benda yang mewah.
Jika cincin itu untuk tujuan pameran, tiada berita tentang pameran barang mewah termasuk cincin itu. Adalah mustahil pameran diadakan sekadar untuk menunjukkan sebentuk cincin itu saja.
Kalau untuk dipamer, tentulah tuan punya cincin itu sendiri datang kerana dia akan dapat menjawab semua pertanyaan para peminat tentang cincin itu. Adalah mustahil cincin itu dipamerkan tanpa kehadiran tuan punya bagi menjamin keselamatan cincin itu.
Agak ajaib jika cincin itu sekadar dipinjamkan kerana ia bukan benda yang murah. Apa jaminan jika cincin itu hilang?
Tiada jawapan yang dapat diterima bagi tuan punya melepaskannya kepada orang lain selain dari dijual.
Orang seperti Rosmah dipercayai tidak akan melepaskannya apabila ia sudah di tangannya. Sedaya upayanya dia akan menjadikannya hak miliknya. Setinggi mana pun harganya tidaklah penting sangat tetapi dia ada cara untuk menyelesaikannya dan dia ada cara bagaimana Perdana Menteri Najib dapat membantu mendapatkannya.
Kita tidak menyanggah penjelasan Menteri Nazri ia telah dikembalikan kerana kita menghormati kata-kata di Parlimen adalah benar dan tiada yang tidak benar.
Tetapi siapa saksi cincin itu telah beredar dari tangan Rosmah? Apa bukti ia sudah diterima semula oleh tuan punya?
Apa pun perkiraan antara kedua tuan punya dan orang yang menerima cincin adalah urusan dan transaksi kedua mereka.
Negara, kerajaan dan rakyat ada hak untuk mengetahui urusan cincin itu. Kita yakin Rosmah mahu memilikinya. Tuan punya tentu sudah diyakinkan urusan niaganya dan penyerahan cincin itu tidak mendatangkan risiko.
Tidak cukup duit gaji Najib dikumpul sejak mula jadi menteri hingga sekarang untuk membelinya. Maka Najib mesti menghilangkan keraguan orang tentang cincin itu supaya tiada wang negara disalahgunakan dan tiada urusan yang tidak betul melayakkan cincin itu boleh menjadi milik isterinya.
Sukar orang untuk mempercayai adanya urusan tentang cincin itu boleh dibawa ke sini.
Silap Rosmah ialah mengapa cincin itu tidak dipakai dan dibawa pulang sendiri? Tiada siapa tahu jika ia tidak dipos.
