  • Ambiga: Who donated RM2.6b to Najib?

    Prominent lawyer Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan urged Malaysia’s graftbusters today to reveal the source of the RM2.6 billion that they claimed had been deposited by “donors” into Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s personal bank accounts. According to Ambiga, if the donations had come from a foreign source, it would likely be in breach of several laws, including those covering money laundering. In my view, the statement by MACC still causes me concern as it means whoever donated such large sums is likely to expect benefit,” said the former Bar Council president, using the acronym for the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

  • Probe RM2.6b donation in PM’s account for money laundering, Bank Negara urged

    An anti-corruption group urged Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) today to launch an investigation into the RM2.6 billion contribution from donors in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s account, saying the purported donation could be a form of money laundering. The Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) director Cynthia Gabriel also said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) should divulge more information on the source of the funds, which the commission had earlier confirmed was from “donors” and not from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) as previously claimed. “The Anti-Money Laundering Act needs to be invoked immediately to examine if it was laundered money and illicit money that was transferred in the prime minister’s account.

  • Meet The ‘Real-Life Iron Man’

    Marvel’s self-styled “genius billionaire playboy philanthropist” is a work of pure fiction… isn’t he? When Stan Lee created the character of Tony Stark and his crime-fighting alter-ego Iron Man in 1963, the character was conceived as a straight-up capitalist – a ludicrous concoction of billionaire industry magnate, ladies man and adventurer. Little did Stan Lee know that just eight years later, a child would be born who would one day embody all the things that Iron Man represented on the page – one who would go on to inform the most popular portrayal of the character.

  • China may be preparing second Spratly airstrip: think-tank

Airstrip building in the Spratly islands goes back nearly 40 years and four other claimants already have such facilities, according to CSIS' Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative.

  • Investigators for missing Malaysia flight meet in Paris

    French and Malaysian investigators cleared their last hurdle before launching a probe that many hope will solve the mystery of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, meeting with a judge in Paris Monday after the arrival of a wing fragment that possibly belonged to the doomed aircraft. Air safety investigators, including one from Boeing, have identified the component as a flaperon from the trailing edge of a Boeing 777 wing. Before the part arrived in France, investigators had a high-degree of confidence that the flaperon was from a Boeing 777, and therefore most likely from Malaysia 370.

  • Sony focuses on endurance and camera quality with new phones

    Sony's latest mid-range smartphones, unveiled on Monday, offer industry-first camera technology and place a premium on battery life but are aimed squarely at the mass market. A week after the Lenovo-owned company took the wraps off its Moto G and Moto X smartphones, Sony has launched two new mid-range handsets of its own that put a premium on the things that matter to consumers rather than just the features technophiles deem as must-haves. An equally good 13-megapixel camera can be found on the back and the handset's battery is big enough to offer up to two days' use between charges -- like the new Moto X Play -- or, claims Sony, seven hours and 47 minutes of video playback.

  • Guan Eng: Deputy minister inciting racial tension with proposal to shut down Chinese papers

    DAP’s Lim Guan Eng today accused an Umno deputy minister of inciting racial tension when he reportedly said he would order the closure of at least two Chinese newspapers if he were in the Home Ministry. The DAP secretary-general also suggested double standards in the deputy minister’s remarks, pointing out that no one else in the administration have ever suggested to shut down Umno-linked publications that publish racially insensitive articles. If he wants to close down Chinese papers for strong racial reporting, perhaps he should do the same with Umno papers as well,” the Penang chief minister said.
