Submarine Scandal: Inquiry Commence 19 April 2012 at Paris Tribunal de Grande Instance (TGI)


Suara Rakyat Malaysia (SUARAM) is pleased to inform that an inquiry into the alleged corruption, misuse and abuse of taxpayers money, linked to the purchase of the two Scorpene class submarines, back in 2002 will commence on 19 April (Thursday) at the Paris Tribunal de Grande Instance (TGI), known as a first degree court that deals with civil litigation matters.  Lawyers William Bourdon and Joseph Breham will be the lead counsel representing SUARAM in France.

 

SUARAM at this time will be represented by Dr. Kua Kia Soong (Director and one of the founders of SUARAM), followed by Cynthia Gabriel (Secretariat Member) and lawyer Fadiah Nadwa.  Dr. Kua  Kia Soong will give the witness statement on the reason why SUARAM has filed the case in 2010. This investigation will be conducted before two judges, Judge Roger Le Loire and Judge Serge Tournaire.

 

SUARAM will also provide names such as then Defense Minister and current Prime Minister Najib Razak, Abdul Razak Baginda, Steve Sharribuu and also others that are believed to be able to assist in the investigation to know the truth about this scandal of 10 years which was also associated with Altantuya’s Sharibuu death in 2006.

 

SUARAM hope that with the commencement of this case in France, we can send a clear message that Malaysians will not sit back and look at corrupt politicians and rampant corruption activities in Malaysia. The Malaysian people wants a government that is transparent, free from corruption and that will also protect the interests of the people.

 

SUARAM will continue to provide information after the delegation returns from France. For further information, please call Nalini at             03-7784 3525      .

Pass of the Security Offences Bill (Special Measures) 2012, will cause more travesty of justice and violations of the rights of Malaysian citizens for years to come.


Suara Rakyat Malaysia (SUARAM) and Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA (GMI) condemn the move by the government to pass the Security Offences Bill 2012 at the parliament yesterday.


Despite the lack of public consultation and after numerous protests and criticisms from the Malaysian and international community towards the multitudes of human rights violations prescribed in the Malaysian laws, for example allowing arbitrary powers to the police to arrest and detain a person without warrant, the Parliament has passed a bill that is not only ignorant to all the aforementioned criticisms, but fails to uphold international human rights standards.
