Large Scale Movement of Dubious Voters by Air Transport from Sabah and Sarawak to Peninsula Malaysia
Posted on May 2, 2013
This morning, I will be disclosing information and findings regarding the sudden surge in the arrival of dubious individuals on chartered flights since April 25th. These are foreign nationals as well as Malaysians from Sabah and Sarawak who have been flown in to Peninsula Malaysia.
We have also received information that there has been a sudden surge in the arrivals of foreign workers from Thailand, Cambodia, Pakistan and Myanmar through Bukti Kayu Hitam as well those from Indonesia through Port Kelang and other coastal entry points.
The timing of this surge in arrivals and its sheer size raises naturally raises the question of whether they have been transported here surreptitiously to vote in favour of Barisan Nasional.
We also received information that these flights were made at the instruction of the Prime Minister’s Department and made through a letter signed by a minister. The facts that we have established so far are:
1. The number of these flights, as many as 16 per day from East Malaysia primarily departing from Kuching and Kota Kinabalu as well as Sandakan, Miri and Sibu, with some flights using jumbo jets. The number of charter flights per day is more than even the number of charter flights during the Haj season.
2. Based on our calculations, as many as 4,500 people are being transported via the in-bound flights into KLIA each day. This has been taking place each day with the exception of May 1st, since April 25th.
3. This means at least 40,500 dubious individuals have and are still entering via this method of chartered flights via KLIA. This does not include foreign nationals who are being moved through land routes and seaports or other airport facilities such as LCCT.
4. The points of arrival of these flights have been KLIA Sepang as well as Bayan Lepas and Senai. We also have information that military aircraft (C130 Hercules) are being used to bring in these phantom voters to land in smaller airports such as Batu Berendam and Ipoh.
5. We have credible documentary evidence that these groups of foreign nationals are being transported from the airports to various sequestration points within Selangor/Kuala Lumpur and the other affected states using transport provided by various government agencies as well as charted bus operators;
We believe that the Election Commission in collaboration with the Prime Minister’s Office, and the involvement of a number of other agencies are involved in this operation. We now demand answers to the following questions from the relevant parties:
1. Can the Inspector General of Police and the Chief of the Armed Forces assure us that the Royal Malaysian Police and Malaysian Armed Forces are neutral professionals and are not involved in a plot to keep Barisan Nasional in power? Can both of them confirm that their intelligence personnel are not involved in orchestrating the movement of these dubious people?
2. Can the Chief of Armed Forces explain if the various Territorial Army (Askar Wataniah) camps have been used as accommodation centers for these dubious individuals?
3. Can the Director General of Immigration explain the role of the various depots in Lenggeng, Sepang and Semenyih in providing accommodation these foreign phantom voters?
4. Can the Director General of the National Registration Department explain whether foreign workers in the Sepang Formula 1 Circuit and KLIA have been given Malaysian identity cards?
We warn the Election Commission and its cahoots that there are many patriotic Malaysians in the various security agencies, airlines and airport employees who are angry and upset that the sovereignty of the country is being compromised. These patriots are monitoring and documenting all the suspicious movements groups of individuals. We have video recordings, photographic evidence and documents to support our claims. We also have the flight schedule of these chartered flights.
We want to warn the current Barisoan Nasional caretaker government not to deny Malaysians their democratic rights to vote freely and fairly. They should also not exploit powerless and marginalized foreign nationals or Malaysians for their goal of staying in power.
I also call upon Malaysians to document all evidence of the inflow of these imported voters. Take photos or videos of their movements. For those have in any way been involved in this operation, please forward to us the evidences that you have. We must protect the sovereignty of the rakyat.
Finally, we urge every single voter who loves Malaysia to come out to take control of our destiny by voting and not let the BN steal our election by using these dubious voters. If Pakatan Rakyat, Insyallah, is given the mandate by the rakyat, we will declare 6th May 2013 a national holiday to allow Malaysia to return home after the voting exercise.
We must overwhelm these imported voters with our high turnout to ensure our dignity and sovereignty. Let us exorcise this country from the demons of BN and the Election Commission.

Tengku Adnan admits chartering flights for voters
PETALING JAYA - Barisan Nasional secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor today confirmed that the coalition had organised chartered flights to transport people back to vote on Sunday.
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.
