Wrong Move by Zakaria

So many lawyer in town, yet Zakaria can choose someone who will stab him from behind.
From this point I can safely say Zakaria does not read or know enough about Shafee Abdullah.
Moving Isa to Spad is proof enough that Najib cannot touch Isa even though the latter is a criminal.
MACC will do nothing, PDRM will do nothing.
The loser in this FGV drama are Zakaria and three others whom Isa has insisted they must leave FGV before accepting the post in Spad.
How many of you know why Isa can blackmail Najib?
Many will say it is because of the Port Dickson case with Zaina Zain.
THE TRUTH IS ZAINA ZAIN AND NAJIB RAZAK HAVE A LOVE CHILD.
THE PERSON LOOKING AFTER THE WELFARE OF THE CHILD IS ISA.
SO THAT IS WHY NO-ONE CAN TOUCH ISA SAMAD UNTIL NAJIB IS NO LONGER THE PM.

Pascal Najadi - My Fury Over Najib's Lawyer Mohd Shafee Abdullah

The son of the assassinated former chairman of AmBank, Hussein Najadi, has told Sarawak Report that he has deep concerns about the way the lawyer Mohd Shafee Abdullah controlled events after his father was shot in broad daylight in KL.
The shocking event took place just a few weeks before another huge personal payment by Prime Minister Najib was made to Shafee of RM4.3 million.
The payment was transacted on 11th September 2013, whereas Najadi was murdered on 29th July.  Once again, the money came  from Account no: 2112022011906 in Najib’s name, which was funded by money stolen from 1MDB’s subsidiary SRC.

Pascal Najadi, who was in Moscow when the tragedy occured, says that neither he nor his immediate family knew Shafee and no one had contacted him to be involved. Nevertheless, the lawyer mysteriously arrived at the hospital almost as soon as his father’s body was brought into the mortuary and started to take charge of events.
Photographs even show Shafee on the scene as an ambulance bearing Najadi’s injured second wife arrived, bringing Najadi to the mortuary:

According to Najadi, the family soon found that this strange lawyer was muscling in on their situation and insisting on taking control. Pascal has testified:
Tuesday July 30 2013, it must have been lunch time or a little later in KL, my mum Heidi Najadi called me from the KLK Morgue where they have laid up the body of my late father… She asked me “there is this Dato Shafee running around rude and nervous acting as if he owns the body of dad and giving orders to all of us?!” I asked my mum, who? She said “His name is Dato Shafee..?!” I told my mum to pass this man on the phone to me.
This is my perception of this call. Dato Shafee was nervous when talking to me, he was breathing short and gave half clipped words answers to my question: “Can we wait with the burial please?” He stuttered to me: “No can not, all is in hand, I take care of all, he will be buried today, this evening…”
Pascal says he was shocked by the haste and by manner in which decisions were taken out of his family’s hands. He says a swift burial was not their custom and he had wanted to be able to fly to KL to attend the ceremony.
Shafee did not say “I am so sorry for your terrible loss….or can I help you are you OK? Where are you now? ” He said nothing of what a normal human or indeed a friend would say.
Shafee was the ad hoc burial master for the body of my late father Hussain without any reason, he even had the service paid every penny of it to make it fast and swift”,
says Najadi in his statement.

“I am taking charge”

Speaking to Sarawak Report Pascal Najadi says that Shafee had told the family that he had been ‘put in charge’ of matters, but he never explained by whom.
Shafee, whom he described as brusque and nervous, managed the entire funeral and all the related matters, yet Najadi says the family never received a bill from him.
An email exchange with Shafee Abdullah (copied to Tania Scivetti his legal collaborator and later wife) confirms Najadi’s claim that the lawyer had put himself in charge of events, telling Pascal “I am taking care of the funeral”.
The lawyer even swept aside the son’s request to have words read out at the funeral, which was being held before he could get to his father’s side, saying “it is impossible to read the eulogy you prepared in a Muslim funeral setting” – then, imperiously he declared “I will make sure Hussain gets the best send off” despite refusing to wait a few hours for the arrival of his son:
Curt response from a bossy stranger - the only words Najadi received in writing from Shafee Abdullah
Curt response from a bossy stranger – the only words Najadi received in writing from Shafee Abdullah
Pascal, who describes himself as having been in shock and frightened at the time, soon decided that the situation KL was not safe for his mother and himself and they fled the country, leaving much unfinished business in the process.
However, the role and the behaviour of Shafee has always bothered him, in particular the question over who had so swiftly assigned him to these duties and paid for his services?

Assigned by Najib?  If so, why?

Najadi says there is no evidence that Shafee had any prior connection to his deceased father.  Rather, he says, he later learnt that the lawyer was extremely close to Prime Minister Najib Razak, against whom his father had just made some extremely serious reports.
In the days prior to his mystery assassination Hussein Najadi had, according to his son, first made a formal complaint to the Bank Negara about information he had received about Najib’s huge private bank accounts at AmBank, where Najadi had once been Chairman.
Secondly, just days before his death, Najadi had made a police report about a threatening text to ‘back-off’ the matter, allegedly sent from within the Prime Minister’s Office.
In a written statement made in July 2015 Pascal Najadi told his lawyer:
“I went through the lifelong email archives of my late father to perhaps find a friendly or a business email between the two, I can confirm here, not one email nothing, no trace of contact. Shafee appeared like a flash out of nowhere buried my dad and disappeared into thin air, no call no nothing (!) He vanished fast and without a word like he appeared from nowhere on July 30th 2013. Never heard of the man again…. only after the killing I found out that this Shafee is the de facto lawyer for Najjib and UMNO and is the man who also was hired to put Anwar away. [Pascal Najadi, statement July 2015]
Pascal Najadi says he is now openly questioning whether Najib’s RM4.3 million payment from Najib so soon after these events may have been linked?  He says he has also noted that it was also shortly after his father’s tragic demise that Shafee was given the honour of the title Tan Sri:
“We are still puzzled why and how he surfaced on to the gruesome macabre scene taking charge of the burial. To this day today Shafee, who got promoted to Tan sri right after this horrible event, and his role are a mystery to me.”

Tania Scivetti

Pascal Najadi says that if his concerns are misplaced, then all Shafee needs to do is to give him full disclosure about his role and how all his costs were covered.  Meanwhile, there was another strange intervention, which he says has also bothered him, especially since he now realises it was also linked to Shafee Abdullah.
He had had struck a recent acquaintance, says Najadi, with another KL legal practioner Tania Scivetti. Scivetti’s practice is perhaps best known for supporting high-profile foreign drug offenders caught in Malaysia.  On a number of occasions, she has worked with Shafee to represent them and get them repatriated.
Shafee and Scivetti worked together to assist this and other foreigners who had got into trouble with Malaysian law
Shafee and Scivetti worked together to assist this and other foreigners who had got into trouble with Malaysian law
What Pascal Najadi was not aware of was that Sciavetti (a non-Muslim) was already the common law wife of Shafee Abdullah, whom she later married in the UK.  Shortly after his father’s death Tania called Pascal to offer her legal services and to help put his father’s affairs in order.
In particular, she offered to get the locks changed on Najadi’s offices and to hire a guard to prevent intruders taking documents.  The staff were removed.
Pascal said that he agreed to the suggestion, based on his acquaintance with Scivetti.  For some days Scivetti managed Najadi’s affairs and had total control of all access to his office and his papers.  Then, she ceased answering calls and terminated her services.  This was one email from Pascal, to which she did not reply:
Scivetti abruptly terminated services with the Najadis they say
Scivetti abruptly terminated services with the Najadis they say
Pascal Najadi, who claims his father’s murder has never been properly investigated in Malaysia, has told Sarawak Report that he has been left wondering if Scivetti and Shafee were in fact working together on his case, as in so many others?
If so, he wants to know who prompted them to get in touch and get busy over his father’s death and who paid?
“I want to know if Najib’s multi-million payment to Shafee Abdullah so soon after my father’s death was connected” he told Sarawak Report. “We know this money came from 1MDB so we have a right to know if it was and if so why?  If it was not connected then what was the payment for and who covered Shafee’s costs instead?”

Witnesses in Malacca protection racket are ‘missing’, says MACC chief


MACC chief commissioner Dzulkifli Ahmad says several key witnesses may have gone into hiding following major MACC operations against a protection racket in Malacca. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Najjua Zulkefli, June 17, 2017.
INVESTIGATIONS into Malacca's biggest protection racket involving the police and underworld could be scuttled after it was revealed today that several key witnesses have gone missing.
MACC chief commissioner Dzulkifli Ahmad said the witnesses have gone into hiding, or have even left the country.
"Investigations are still going on but there are a few witnesses that have not been located because they already ran away and are no longer in the country," he said after officiating the Sahabat SPRM (Friends of MACC) programme at Berjaya Times Square in Kuala Lumpur this evening.
Dzulkifli suspects that these witnesses may have gone into hiding after MACC moved in on the individuals believed to be involved in the syndicate that provides protection to illegal massage parlours and gambling dens in Malacca.
Last month the anti-graft body arrested Melaka Tengah and Jasin district police chiefs for their alleged involvement in the protection racket.
Several other senior officers from the district and state police headquarters were also nabbed in the operation. MACC also seized a large amount of cash in several bank accounts belonging to the suspects.
Also detained was a civilian named "Gopi" whom whistleblower site Sarawak Report alleged had direct phone contact with Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar. Khalid admitted that he knew Gopi and that the suspect had also visited his home.
Commenting on that, Dzulkifli said that they were merely claims from online reports.
He said MACC will conduct their own investigations and did not dismiss the possibility that Khalid will be questioned.
"It depends on our investigation. Whether there is a need (to call him or not) we will see," Dzulkifli said.
Following major MACC operations in Malacca, Khalid instructed a major reshuffle at the Malacca police contingent.
The police officers who were arrested and later released on bail were immediately transferred to the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman while new officers were sent to replace them in Malacca. – June 17, 2017.

Dzulkifli: Police, not MACC will investigate 1MDB

 | June 17, 2017
MACC chief commissioner says it has been decided in government that investigations will be left to the police.Dzulkifli-Ahmad-macc-1mdbKUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will not investigate 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) over allegations of financial improprieties as it does not want to overlap with investigations already started by the police.
Its chief commissioner Dzulkifli Ahmad said today that it had been decided among relevant government agencies that investigations on the  sovereign wealth fund would be done solely by the police.
He said the people needed to be patient while the police performed their work in the matter.
Although he did not name the agencies, it is believed he was referring to the attorney-general’s chambers (AGC), as well as the MACC and the police.
He was speaking to reporters after the launch of the “MACC Friends” programme here.
Dzulkifli added that the US Department of Justice (DoJ), which has initiated two lawsuits seeking to seize assets allegedly purchased with funds linked to 1MDB, had not sought any information or assistance from the MACC for the latest suit filed on Thursday.
“They did not do it (request information) for this civil suit and they did not for the previous one as well,” he said.
He added that the DoJ had also not contacted the Malaysian police or the AGC even after the latter had previously expressed dissatisfaction over lack of communication on the case.
In its court filing in California on June 5, the DoJ sought to seize US$540 million (RM2.3 billion) in assets, including art works, jewellery, a luxury yacht and film rights purchased with funds allegedly embezzled from 1MDB.
The assets named in the applications included the film rights to the two comedies “Dumb and Dumber To” starring Jim Carrey and “Daddy’s Home” featuring Will Ferrell.
The action follows last July’s civil forfeiture suit by the DoJ which sought to recover all the assets including but not limited to the Park Lane Hotel in New York, a luxury hotel in Beverly Hills, condominiums in New York, a private jet and expensive works of art, as well as finances related to Martin Scorsese’s movie “The Wolf of Wall Street” starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
Yesterday, Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali dismissed the latest suit, describing it as a repeat of last year’s case in which Washington sought to confiscate more than US$1 billion (RM4.28 billion) in connection with the company.
In a statement, he said neither Malaysian nor international authorities investigating 1MDB had furnished any evidence of misappropriated funds.
“1MDB… has been the subject of multiple investigations within Malaysia, including by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, auditor-general and bi-partisan Public Accounts Committee (PAC). After a review, we found that no crime was committed,” he said, adding that Malaysian police investigations were still ongoing.
He added that investigations carried out by the DoJ had also failed to provide any evidence of misappropriated funds.
Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar also said yesterday that the police would not interfere in the DoJ’s latest move.
He added that the police would not offer assistance to the US Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) to look into the case, which he termed as a “civil matter”.

Najib blackmailed into covering up for IGP Khalid and top guns in Bukit Aman

As PM Tells MACC To 'Back Off', We Throw More Light On Gopi's Network Of Top Cops - EXCLUSIVE

As PM Tells MACC To 'Back Off', We Throw More Light On Gopi's Network Of Top Cops - EXCLUSIVE

The Inspector General of Police yesterday conceded Sarawak Report was correct in pin-pointing his ‘family friendship’ with the big-time protection racket suspect Gopinathan Krishnan (‘Gopi’), arrested last month in an MACC swoop named “Ops Gopi’.

We identified from billing information that the alleged gangster had been in regular contact with IGP Khalid Abu Baker himself, as well as his son and brother in law during the weeks prior to his arrest.
However, Khalid considers himself to be under no obligation to elaborate on the relationship, berrating reporters at yesterday’s press conference:
“Why do you want to ask to that extent? Now you want to ask how close we are, whether we hold hands, whether we kiss? Be reasonable”
Yet, the same evidence obtained by Sarawak Report shows that not only the IGP but a whole network of his closest senior officers were also in regular phone contact with the same Mr Gopi prior to his arrest.

Federal CID Head was a top contact of Gopi’sMohammed Salleh CID

From scores of numbers linked to senior officers, which were frequently called by Gopi, Sarawak Report has already identified, for example, the personal number of Mohamed Salleh (0196000148), who is the PDRM’s Federal CID Director in charge of the nation’s gambling and vice units.

Salleh is a known protege of Khalid’s and given that Gopi and his associates from the Malacca police force have been arrested by the MACC on charges of collecting ‘protection money’ from illegal gambling dens and prostitution houses, the nature of these phone calls must indeed be highly relevant and ought to be investigated.
From billing data between January and April of this year alone, Sarawak Report has identified that Gopi dialed up PJSJ Mohd Salleh at least 8 times.
 The calls were mostly short, but one on 12th April lasted six minutes twenty seconds and another on 5th February lasted five minutes and twenty four seconds.  An earlier call again on February 3rd lasted 5 minutes and twenty six seconds:
Excerpts from Gopi's phone billsGiven the occupation of the receiver and the charges against Gopi, the content of these and all the other calls clearly needs to be fully explained.

Police Chief Of Perak also in Gopi’s network

The same data throws up a wide number of other numbers belonging to senior police officers, according to our sources, including Hasnan Hassan, the Chief of Police of Perak (0196000326).
For example, Gopi repeatedly called Hassan on 12th February.  First there was a call of just under a minute at half past one in the afternoon. Then later just after two there were three short calls lasting a total of around three minutes:Screen Shot 2017-06-14 at 22.11.14
Screen Shot 2017-06-14 at 22.11.28

 On 14th April Gopi again called Hassan twice for a total of over three minutes and there was a half minute call the following day:Screen Shot 2017-06-15 at 10.37.14

Yet Another Vice Chief – Azman Mohd Isa

Another top cop on Gopi’s phone network was the Deputy Chief of KL’s CID, ACP Azman Mohd Isa (0194000490), who is in charge of the capital’s Anti-Gambling & Vice Unit.  On 21st January there was a short call then there were four calls then on 31st there were four calls:

The Perak Head of Vice – DSP Annadurai Veloo

Nine calls made to Vice Boss Veloo in January and February... why?
Nine calls made to Vice Boss Veloo in January and February… why?
Another prominent number to pop up in Gopi’s call data is the Chief of Perak’s D7, DSP Annadurai Veloo (0192639965), who once again is in charge of combatting gambling and vice, such as prostitution.
Gopi made nine calls to DSP Veloo over January and February, including a four minute call on January 29th; two calls on February 6th, both around half past eleven in the morning and a one and a half minute call on February 15th.
There were a further 12 calls over March and April, including nine mintus of chat just before 9pm on April 2nd and a spat of calls on 16th and 17th:

Sarawak Also In The Frame

DCP Abdul Aziz Yusof, the Deputy Chief of Police of Sarawak (0197000211) is also one of Gopi’s contacts, according to his phone data.
Gopi made six calls to him in January and February and thirteen calls over March and April.  Some matter had the two in touch over a number of calls on April 13th, for example:
Gopi's calls to Sarawak Vice Chief
Gopi’s calls to Sarawak Deputy Police Chief

‘Lay Off The IGP’ PM’s Office Has Told MACC!

There is a long list of other police officers whose phone numbers have been identified on Gopi’s call list, Sarawak Report has been reliably informed.  A good deal of further visual evidence has also been collected confirming this suspect’s close relations with officers at the highest level in the police force.
Also on Gopi's phone network - Sarawak DCP Abdul Aziz Yusof
Also on Gopi’s phone network – Sarawak DCP Abdul Aziz Yusof
However, this shocking investigation, which has produced cash hauls from suspect’s premises of hundreds of thousands of ringgit, now seems to be under threat. Sarawak Report has learnt that in recent days personnel from the Prime Minister’s Office have been putting direct pressure on the MACC to keep this probe away from the door of the IGP and his top colleagues.
“phone calls have been made’
a source with insider contacts has told us. How are the MACC possibly going to ignore all this evidence of such close and extensive contacts or sweep it under the carpet?
In his own defence the IGP yesterday again accused Sarawak Report of ‘targeting’ and ‘slandering’ himself and other senior Malaysian figures for reasons that he failed to define.  On the day the US Dept of Justice was reported as having filed more asset seizures linked to 1MDB (a scandal exposed by Sarawak Report) he accused our blog of making “baseless” accusations.
Yet, in the process he further acknowledged that a another article in this blog, written last year, was also in fact true.
Last year we reported that the IGP and a large number of his officers had been spotted at a five star hotel in Italy, along with their wives.  We received photographs and details of trips taken to other historic towns by the extended party.  At his press conference Khalid claimed we had mis-represented the trip, saying he was there with a sultan to “take two choppers there”.
Since the report is now corroborated, the IGP ought surely explain why he and a sultan were needed to fly to Italy to deliver helicopters and why so many officers and their wives were also needed to attend the trip?  Sarawak Report had understood that they had been on a training exercise, although the presence of wives remains a mystery.

IGP Khalid involvement with police protection racket in Malacca

Operation Gopi - Connections Point Right To The Top MAJOR EXCLUSIVE

Operation Gopi - Connections Point Right To The Top MAJOR EXCLUSIVE

Mid-May officers from the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) started rounding up several figures in Malacca relating to an extraordinary police ‘protection’ racket against illegal gambling dens and ‘massage parlours’.
Senior police officers have numbered amongst those picked up along with figures described as ‘intermediaries’, who were allegedly controlling the operation on behalf of even more senior police officials at Bukit Aman, according to reports that found their way to the media.
The investigation, went under the name of Operation Gopi and large sums of cash have been discovered in the possession of a number of the detainees, including a staggering RM800,000 tucked away in the police quarters of one officer.
It has been further reported that the state officers concerned were effectively saying they had been pressured by the intermediaries who had senior contacts at police HQ (Bukit Aman) to do the collections of cash in order to keep their jobs.  If they failed to cooperate, they told interviewers, they would be removed and indeed several have been removed for refusing to do so, say sources.

Gopinathan Krishnan'Gopi' was among those arrested and taken to court - circled

‘Gopi'(circled) was among those arrested and taken to court
Sarawak Report has learnt from reliable sources that the key intermediary concerned was one Gopinathan Krishnan, known as Gopi.  Hence the name Operation (Ops) Gopi.
Under questioning Gopi has admitted everything to his interrogators, corroborating the information that has already appeared in the newspapers about high up police in Bukit Aman using him as an intermediary to manage the collection of the payments from illegal operations in Malacca.
It appears the protection racket was by no means restricted to Malacca, however, but is part of a multi-million ringgit collection scam operating right across Malaysia that has developed over the past few years.
The allegation is that it is being run from the very top of the police force and there is now considerable push-back under way, with allegations that the MACC have been ‘victimising’ and ‘targeting’ police officers and that the investigation ought to be brought to a close or taken over by the police themselves.
Given this state of affairs, it is material and ought to be known that Gopi allegedly listed in his phone book a number of very senior officers indeed (and people connected with them) whom he regularly rang. Under the circumstances it must be explained why he was in reguarly in contact with these senior officers.feeda44a789c6e860ca481fe4518d66f97031ac0After all, this protection racket has been admitted to by the arrested officers, the intermediaries and even some of the illegal operators who have spoken to reporters and have now closed their shops in Malacca.
So, these unfortunate connections simply cannot be ignored and in any normal situation all those very senior officers who had been contacted by Gopi would take a leave of absence while the matter was being investigated.
Thanks to phone billing information dated in April this year Sarawak Report is able to identify one of these senior figures linked to the Bukit Aman hierachy.
We refer to none other than the brother in law of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Khalid Abu Bakar, who runs an arms selling business together with Khalid’s daughter.  His name is Mohd Isa bin Hussin and he is the village chief of GebokMantin, Negeri Sembilan.

Name and mobile phone number
Name and mobile phone number
According to data seen by Sarawak Report Gopi rang the IGP’s brother in law 7 times during the month of April. Given that he is now under arrest for allegedly acting as the lynch pin in a police protection racket managed at the highest levels within the police force, Khalid and Isa bin Hussin clearly ought to explain the reason for those calls.
For example, on 10th April of this year Gopi rang Isa’ mobile number 0196610914 (see above graphic) three times between just before 6pm and half past 6 from his own mobile phone number (012)6193971. 
 Why these calls on a Monday evening?Screen Shot 2017-06-11 at 22.54.36
Screen Shot 2017-06-11 at 15.59.25
it must also be noted that all these calls were very quick.  Gopi wasn’t having to introduce himself or circle round to the reason for his call. Both people apparently therefore knew each other well and understood the purpose of the call. They were able to dispense with matters quickly, despite having to perform a couple of updates over the hour.
Maybe it was an invitation between friends (golf) and maybe Isa bin Hussin needed to check his own availability?  Under the circumstances, whatever the reason, it should be checked and explained – no way should investigations be dropped or complaints about ‘witchhunts‘ be entertained.
The communications appear to have continued in April. Sarawak Report understands that Gopi rang Isa bin Hussin again the following day in the morning, when they chatted for a little over a minuteScreen Shot 2017-06-11 at 23.03.08
and then two days later on the evening of 13th April, when they chatted for nearly three minutes and lastly on 20th April when they had a relatively lengthy natter lasting nearly seven minutes.
So, let’s hear the explanation as to why this alleged full-time police protection racketeer was talking to the brother in law of the IGP, with whom we know he was in direct business through Nilai Arms?IGP Khalid Abu BakerScreen Shot 2017-06-11 at 23.05.20
The IGP should further make clear if there have been any other contacts between Gopi and people close to him either personally or professionally and whether or not he was also in Gopi’s phone book.
If there were such contacts he should, of course, recuse himself from going anywhere near any of the investigations and step aside from his position whilst they are underway.
Extending Khalid’s period of office beyond the statutory retirement age, which he reaches this year, is plainly even less acceptable under the circumstances, although this is Najib’s present intention.
Perhaps the Prime Minister is starting to regret having set the MACC onto a full-scale corruption probe into any topics – with the exception of 1MDB.

Msian navy cadet tortured in own dorm for 12 days before he died. How did no one notice?


36 students have been held for the past week, as part of an investigation into the death of a navy cadet at Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia (UPNM). Electrical engineering student, Zulfarhan Osman, was alleged to have been tortured by his classmates after a bomoh named him as having stolen a classmate’s laptop.
While authorities have denied this part of the story, the investigation has so far resulted in 32 UPNM students and 4 UNITEN students getting tangkap-ed for questioning. The four UNITEN students were said to have kept Zulfarhan in their apartment in Bangi where he died before being pronounced dead at Serdang HospitalMinister of DefenceHishammuddin Hussein, has weighed in on the story ordering the Armed Forces and the university to look into the matter.
In the meantime, while the police, the tentera, and the university are investigating, we did some of our own digging. From everything we gathered, there were a few things that really stood out for us, and more precisely… here are 3 things we found really weird about the torture of the UPNM Navy Cadet.

20+ students were involved in his murder… over a laptop?

According to available news reports, Zulfarhan was tortured all because of a dispute over a laptop. Sources mention that the student who lost the laptop met with a bomoh who named Zulfarhan as the thief. However, Selangor police chief told The Star:
Who said bomoh? We never said bomoh. There is no bomoh.” – S’gor police chief Comm Datuk Seri Abdul Samah Mat.
While we haven’t been able to pinpoint the exact source of this information, it appears that the claim a bomoh was involved had apparently been raised to Zulfarhan’s father, Zulkarnain Idrus, who told reporters that it was a bomoh who had given their son’s name to the perpetrators. Meanwhile, Zulfarhan’s mother says he could not have stolen the laptop because he already had one of his own.
According to Hawa Osman, the claim that her son stole a laptop was also something Zulfarhan’s teachers and friends did not believe. For her, it was important that investigations cleared her son’s name. But as the police try to do so, other points have also been raised by Dave Avran, founder of the Malaysians Against Rape, Assault, and Snatch Theft. Speaking to The Malay Mail, Dave said:
If the victim had indeed stolen a laptop as alleged, it could have been dealt with according to the law“.
Which leads us to the same question: Why did the students feel the need to take matters into their own hands? According to Dave, the torturing of Zulfarhan suggests that the students were only using theft as an excuse. But whether his suspicions are right or wrong, the motives of the students involved including the 36 arrested by police so far will only be proven as the investigations discover more.

None of his teachers or friends noticed anything for over a WEEK?

So far, the facts that are available go like this:
May 20-21: Zulfarhan was brought to a dorm room where some students questioned him. When he denied stealing, between 20-30 students beat him with a steam irona belta rubber hose, and a clothes hanger.
May 27: When he hadn’t recovered after a week, two batch mates drove Zulfarhan to a clinic in Bangi where he saw a doctor and was told to receive further treatment on May 31.
May 31: Two of the main suspects in the current investigations brought him to rest in a condominium in Bangi after sneaking him out of the university.
June 1: Zulfarhan was determined to have passed away in the condo at 9:10 PM before he was officially pronounced dead at Hospital Serdang.
From the timeline here, it shows between the time he was tortured on May 20th, till when he was finally brought to the hospital on June 1st, 12 days passed without anyone noticing what happened or without anyone reporting anything to the university. We tried speaking to former and current UPNM students to find out how this could be possible.
According to this Twitter thread, it was possible that the perpetrators kept watch for the wardens patrolling their block the night they tortured Zulfarhan. While that may explain how they managed to torture their classmate without university officials noticing, we still needed to find out why no one noticed anything for a whole 12 days until he died. 
We spoke to a former UPNM student who wished to remain anonymous. They told us the structure of the student body at UPNM, including the difference between civilian students at the university and student cadets under the Military Training Academy (MTA). Here’s how they broke it down for us:
36 students have been held for the past week, as part of an investigation into the death of a navy cadet at Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia (UPNM). Electrical engineering student, Zulfarhan Osman, was alleged to have been tortured by his classmates after a bomoh named him as having stolen a classmate’s laptop.
While authorities have denied this part of the story, the investigation has so far resulted in 32 UPNM students and 4 UNITEN students getting tangkap-ed for questioning. The four UNITEN students were said to have kept Zulfarhan in their apartment in Bangi where he died before being pronounced dead at Serdang HospitalMinister of DefenceHishammuddin Hussein, has weighed in on the story ordering the Armed Forces and the university to look into the matter.
@upnm Saya telah arahkan ATM & UPNM utk jalankan siasatan dgn kadar segera. Tiada siapa akan terlepas drpd tindakan undang2 jika didapati bersalah
In the meantime, while the police, the tentera, and the university are investigating, we did some of our own digging. From everything we gathered, there were a few things that really stood out for us, and more precisely… here are 3 things we found really weird about the torture of the UPNM Navy Cadet.

Seems legit.

Saya akan fokus pada tempat kejadian. Bilik tingkat 4 no 10. 4-10. Di blok yg sama ad 132 bilik 12 tingkat
Setiap bilik ad 6 penghuni. Jurulatih ad 14 org. Setiap hari akan ad 2 jurulatih on duty jaga blok.
According to this Twitter thread, it was possible that the perpetrators kept watch for the wardens patrolling their block the night they tortured Zulfarhan. While that may explain how they managed to torture their classmate without university officials noticing, we still needed to find out why no one noticed anything for a whole 12 days until he died. 
We spoke to a former UPNM student who wished to remain anonymous. They told us the structure of the student body at UPNM, including the difference between civilian students at the university and student cadets under the Military Training Academy (MTA). Here’s how they broke it down for us:
Think of a real army, but with school pengawas instead of officers
According to them, cadets at the university are broken into battalions of 500+ cadets overseen by 5-7 instructors. This makes the ratio of instructors to cadets almost 1:100+ at UPNM. We compared this number by speaking to Suhanraj Rajasegarana Malaysian graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, where the last hazing death happened over a century ago in 1900.
At West Point, Suhanraj told us that for each company of 120 cadets, there would usually be one senior non-commissioned officerand one officer jaga-ing them during the day, bringing the officer-cadet ratio to 1:60. Budden, our UPNM source also told us this:
Even with the ratio of instructors to cadets being 1:100, at any given point, not all 5-7 instructors are there. Most of the time, it’s only 1 or 2 instructors (overseeing 500+ cadets). 
While we think this may have something to do with how no one was able to notice Zulfarhan’s injuries for over a week, others have raised the fact that it was also the start of Ramadhan and a study week for the students. With classes off during this period, it was unlikely that the university’s lecturers would notice Zulfarhan’s absence or for instructors to check up on him as students would usually be studying among themselves.
All this is entirely agak-agak on our part, and there are other parts of the story that don’t make sense to us, for example, why none of his friends reported his abuse to the university or why the doctor who treated him at the clinic didn’t go to the police. Budden, we still have one last question we hope authorities can answer when they find out more, which is…

Is bullying/ragging COMMON in unis or was this just ONE extreme case?

According to a former UPNM lecturer who spoke to the Malaysian Gazette, cases of bullying and ragging have been normal among UPNM students. The source claimed that the ragging culture among the military was inherited from the British to teach soldiers to obey leaders. But then, whether Zulfarhan’s death was a usual ragging case or one that just went too far is something critics and defenders of UPNM are debating among themselves:
While a number of people say the university failed to ensure the safety of their students, actual UPNM students have jumped to the university’s defense including another former student we interviewed. While they wished to remain anonymous, they had this to say on behalf of UPNM:
UPNM is and will always be a great place to study. Since it became a university in 2006 till this very day, thousands of students have finished studying there safely“.
Meanwhile, even Zulfarhan’s cousin thought that this wasn’t a normal case of bullying between classmates:
This may raise the most important question to ask, since figuring out whether anything could have been done means stopping anything like this from happening again. In India, another country where ragging was inherited from the British, anti-ragging movements have sprung up to raise awareness and support victims of abuse including NGOs such as the Society Against Violence in Education (SAVE).
While other instances of extreme ragging in Malaysia’s history may suggest the existence of a deeper and more problematic trend, ragging resulting in deaths have only ever happened once each at a Sekolah Menengah in Bintulu, the Royal Military College in Sungai Besi, and a National Service camp in Rompin. On top of that, while previous extreme cases of ragging have usually involved seniors abusing juniors, it was an unfortunate tragedy that Zulfarhan was tortured by his own batchmates.
The former UPNM student we spoke to suggested that in order to ensure this never happens again, the university instructors should increase their patrols around rooms or any other places where abuses can happen. They also suggested terminating the contracts of the students involved in the incident as a clear message to any others. While these may seem like they fall short of the anti-ragging laws like they have in India, starting somewhere is better than nothing changing at all.

Will this be the last time this happens?

While the police investigate the exact facts of this case, we certainly hope that they uncover what went wrong here and how we, the publicthe universitiesthe authoritiesthe teachersthe parents, and the students can prevent this from ever happening again.
Even though we mention the high ratio of cadets to officers as a potential reason no one noticed anything, we also highlight suggestions of former UPNM students that the university increase the patrols around the students’ rooms as a way to deter ragging in dorms.
Still, we have a very long way to go before we fully wipe out all instances of ragging, bullying, and hazing from our schools and institutions. Until then, we can only send our heartfelt condolences to the family of Zulfarhan Osman and hope that this serves as a lesson for all to say never again.
