Do they look like M’sians?
CLAD in 1Malaysia attire, do they look like Malaysians? The airports, for the past 48 hours, are crowded with “tourists” wearing 1Malaysia attire.
They look like Bangladeshis and have suddenly become 1Malaysia fans!

Emails from Air Asia & MAS expose desperate Najib in airlifting of ILLEGAL VOTERSWritten by Sarawak Report
Down at the airport is where it is happening with the Malaysian elections right now. Secret flights are heading out loaded with cash.
Meanwhile overloaded chartered jets are flying in crowded with foreign workers, suspected of being dragooned into voting for BN.
It would appear that the rats are leaving the sinking ship, while the PM is still desperately trying to win this election “at any cost”
Emails from Air Asia and Malaysian Airlines (MAS) expose a desperate PM
Emails leaked to the opposition by staff working at both Air Asia and MAS have left Najib Razak desperately exposed.
They indicate that while his departing henchmen and rich businessmen have increasingly been losing faith that he can win this election, the PM has been caught red-handed trying to ferry tens of thousands of dubious voters over to KL to influence the outcome!
Staff insiders at Air Asia and MAS have just leaked the devastating email interchanges, which lay bare the whole operation with both sets of emails implicating the Prime Minister personally in the extraordinary operation.
As his UMNO troops have started to desert in their private jets, can the PM survive this devastating exposure?
Rats leaving the sinking ship?
Because chartered jumbos are not the only unusual traffic that has been raising eyebrows.
Private jets have also been busy as rich Malaysians are getting their money out by whatever means it seems. One the eye-witness account from air crew came through to Sarawak Report yesterday of:
“a private plane leaving Subang filled with a collection of luxury bags,and one large gunny sack stuffed with US dollars-estimated value RM 2.5 billion. Bags were dropped off by men in suits driving a couple of sliver Mercedeses , number plate 11"
From vote buying to vote flying!
As for the traffic moving in the other direction, PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim has come out stating that his information is solid that these are foreign workers being ferried to KL to be used as ‘voting fodder’.
PKR have made clear that they believe that the UMNO supporting Election Commission (both the Chairman and deputy were card-carrying UMNO members) are registering them as new voters.
One senior PKR member told Sarawak Report:
“The National Registration Department which issues I.C.s (Identity Cards) secretly issue these cards to the PM’s Office, which then gets undercover agents to recruit foreign nationals, who get their pictures taken and then superimposed on the I.Cs and then the Election Commission which is in charge of registering voters simply key in the data of these new I.C.s into their system. Voila! New voters!”
And today Najib indeed appears to have been caught red-handed, bringing in dubious workers from the two East Malaysian states to vote BN in marginal seats in peninsular Malaysia.
The leaked emails indicate that the Prime Minister has been urgently coordinating the chartering of massive 747s to ship over 40,000 Indonesians or East Malaysians from Kuching and KK, airports, backwaters that normally never see the like of such aircraft.
The incriminating evidence is there in snapshots, emails and aircraft information that are currently going viral on the web.
Both the emails leaked from Air Asia and MAS indicate that the matter is being coordinated by the Prime Minister’s office. One from MAS makes plain that the chartered planes are to “ferry voters and election workers from BKE and KCH”.
Since when did these sleepy plantation states become packed with poor West Malaysian workers needing charter flights back to KL or indeed East Malaysian, who might be registered in West Malaysia and need to go back to vote?
Suspicions are now rife that many of these individuals may be foreign plantation workers, doing their masters’ bidding.
Moreover, while all names are obliterated from the MAS emails, the ones from Air Asia show clearly who many of the key writers and recipients of the emails are. They include the Chief Executive Aireen Omar.
See this smoking gun email below from Omar with a second reference to the need to report back to the PM herself:
One wonders how BN has the brass necked cheek to pose as the party of ‘stability’ when it indulges in such grossly provocative acts as this plan to plane and then bus thousands of foreigners to the polling stations of such places as Selangor on Sunday?
Cooperation from BN’s ‘fixed deposit’ states
And how typical of the two corrupted BN tyrants of East Malaysia, Chief Ministers Taib Mahmud and Musa Aman to cooperate in such a scandalous activity.
Both men are exposed up to their necks in graft, with billions in kickbacks firmly labelled against their names. Therefore both are desperate to do what they can to save Najib who will protect them for as long as they can provide BN the seats he needs to keep power.
40,000 plantations workers on a plane by the weekend to vote in Selangor? Why not!
Sabah’s Project IC is the direct comparison. Then UMNO ‘legalised’ foreign nationals to steal the East Malaysian state from its native voters.
Now it appears they are flying those workers over West Malaysia to steal their states too!
Malaysian air crew speaking to journalists at Heathrow airport had this to say Tuesday morning:
“Was at Heathrow on Tuesday and met some senior aircrew. They claim that Najib is using MAS old 747s (the ones which were old and replaced by the new A380s) to fly foreigners in from both KK and Kuching….. there have been several of these flights over the past weeks”[UK journalist].
As per Tony’s email!
The involvement of the Chairman of Air Asia is also plain in this trail of emails. Tony Fernandez (now world famous as the owner of QPR Football Club) is the BN client and supposed ‘whizz kid’, who went from nowhere to the head of a major airline in a twinkling of an eye having caught the eye of Mahathir some years back.
He clearly owes his political allies some loyalty:
Anwar Ibrahim has released this compelling evidence of the ‘vote flying’ in an urgent press statement followed by a release of the evidence that BN are now being forced to struggle to explain.
Crowd buying now shopping for Bangladeshis
There is another issue that has been gaining attention across the blogs. Concern has grown that BN has been paying a different section of Malaysia’s community of foreign workers to perform another aspect of its election strategy.
This is crowd buying.
BN’s oil flushed, timber flushed solution to all its problems for the last 50 years has been “if you need it, buy it”.
And in this election it seems that as it has become harder to buy up their own Malay supporters for the party, they have started to pay poor immigrant cheer leaders to wear their T-shirts and wave their flags.
Meanwhile, the real UMNO troopers are concentrating on getting their money out of town.
The level of graft of by the ruling elite, which is currently pouring its money out of KL and into foreign safe havens has been causing even the banking community to feel sickened at the sight, according to insiders who have confided to Sarawak Report.
Follow the money to see what a growing number of panicking UMNO bigwigs think the outcome of this election will be. Last year as many Malaysians as British nationals bought property in Central London. One told a London estate agent before Christmas:
"I will buy any property you have in Central London on your books. I need to get my money out as there is to be an election in Malaysia soon and the next government may be stricter about people like me taking out money like this!"
But, while BN’s henchmen are starting to run round like disturbed ants, there is one man who is determined that the party should win this coming election and that is the PM Najib Razak, whose pride depends on success.
And if that means shipping in tens of thousands of foreign illegal voters and putting tens of thousands more into BN T-shirts all to con an election from his own people, then it seems he is prepared to try and carry it off.
But Najib’s actions are being watched by the entire nation now and they are likely to do far more damage than good to his cause of winning this election “at any cost”.

ALREADY, FRAUD FOUND: EC, ministry officials involved will be PUNISHED - PR warnsWritten by Malaysia Chronicle
Pakatan Rakyat has growing concern with indications of electoral fraud and so that Malaysians are fully aware that we have to come out in maximum numbers on Sunday to vote to overcome the possibility of this fraud. There are 3 aspects of this fraud.
Massive numbers: 50,000 journalists?
One is the massive numbers involved in postal voting process over 250,000 people have been issued postal ballots. Now we have verified there were over 50,000 actually issued to media personnel, so it seems shocking that suddenly the media industry in this country has grown to 50,000. Who are this 50,000 people who been issued postal ballots and who have apparently cast these ballots?
That's one big concern because there is no transparency in the process. We don't know where ballot papers have been kept, we don't know what has been done with the ballot papers. We only know that of course in the established process that these ballot papers will be opened on Sunday at 5 o'clock and will be counted. We know from previous history that it's those postal ballots that are suddenly use to transform, to change the outcome in that particular constituency.
Security of ballot boxes in question
The second concern is about the security of the ballot papers used for early voting process. We know of course the boxes are sealed, we know that they have been kept, for example in Subang the boxes for Subang constituency are being kept in USJ police station. But we still remain concerned because we have the same concerns about who is actually having access to the process because we have been told that we can't access, so we can't watch those ballot boxes and these will be kept in so-called secure places like lockups and only opened on Sunday. So our concerns remain about those ballot boxes.
Real or fake Malaysians?
Third is now this emerging information about large numbers, we are talking about 40,000 - 50,000 possibly even more voters being airlifted from Sabah possibly Sarawak as well to come to vote in critical seats in West Malaysia, with specific focus on Selangor. And we see now the flip-flopping position of Umno-Barisan Nasional initially denying it and now finally saying 'we accept those flights are real, it's actually happening and some friendly people are paying for them'. We are not concerned about who's paying for them, we are concerned about who is sitting in the planes to vote, that's the issue.
We are concerned about whether those people are legitimate voters or fraudulent registration and that is the concern. Who are these people who are flying in tens of thousands from Sabah to vote in Selangor. Are they real Malaysians, are they fake Malaysians who been illegally given blue ICs and registered? And if that is the case, then officials in the SPR (Election Commission), the Home Ministry are acting in conspiracy to commit an offence that for me is comparable to treason, where you commit treason on the interest of Malaysian people to a free and fair election by allowing this to happen.
Full weight of the law
And again, I will reiterate the Pakatan Rakyat warning to all officials, public service who are involved - if we find you involved in this process later, the full weight of the law will be thrown at you. If you are found to be involved, under now PR government please take note, that these acts by any senior civil servant from the SPR, from the others ministries, (if you are) established to be involved in any of this will, you meet the full weight of the law because this is an offense which will be treat as a very serious offense.

Tengku Adnan admits chartering flights for voters
Tengku Adnan, however, denied allegations by the Opposition that BN was flying dubious voters from Sabah and Sarawak to the peninsular to shore up BN's position in the polls.
"There is no substance whatsoever to the Opposition's allegations that the passengers were anything other than registered Malaysian voters.
"The flights in question were organised and paid for by friends of BN. They brought registered voters to their home (states) so that they may vote in the upcoming election," he said.
Tengku Adnan said as a norm, many organisations and political parties conduct "get out the vote" campaigns.
"The Opposition themselves have chartered buses to bring voters back from Singapore, and Bersih, an NGO (non-governmental organisation) connected to the Opposition, has paid for Malaysians to fly back from Shanghai and Hong Kong," he added.
Tengku Adnan said the Opposition was casting doubts about the fairness of the electoral system in a sinister attempt to undermine Malaysia's democracy.
"It is a calculated campaign to discredit the electoral system ahead of the election. The Opposition is preparing an excuse for their likely loss," he added.
Yesterday, Pakatan Rakyat de-facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim claimed the coalition had received documents which purportedly relate to an operation to fly about 40,000 "voters" from Sabah and Sarawak to vote in the peninsular.
He claimed the documents obtained show that 16 daily chartered flights, including a Boeing 747, were being used to bring in groups of foreigners between April 25 and this coming Sunday.
Among the "evidence" was a copy of an email correspondence allegedly leaked from the Prime Minister's Office, in which details of the purported operations by national carrier Malaysia Airlines and budget airline Air Asia, were discussed.
"We have credible documentary evidence that foreigners are being transported from the airports to various sequestration points within Selangor and Kuala Lumpur and the other 'affected' states," Anwar told a press conference at PKR headquarters.
He claimed that information leaked by staff from both airlines revealed that on average, about 4,500 people were flown in daily from Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan in Sabah and Sibu and Miri in Sarawak.
Election Commission (EC) chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof, however, described such operations as being "impossible".
Abdul Aziz said it is not uncommon for voters to travel back to their hometowns to vote, including those residing in Sabah and Sarawak who are registered voters in the peninsula.
"What is so sensational about that (travelling)? It is not a crime for them (voters) to return to their own state. Even Anwar (himself) stays in KL but is voting in Penang," he retorted, demanding Anwar produce proof of his allegations.
In an immediate response, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's office has denied any involvement in such operations.
"The Prime Minister's office denies any involvement in these flights," Bernama quoted a government spokesman as saying.
"The Election Commission has gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure that the electoral system is stronger than ever, and the elections are free and fair," he added.
Meanwhile, a picture of a chartered flight schedule and screen shots of internal email correspondence between airlines' management on the operations have gone viral on social media, fuelling speculation of attempts of election fraud.
