Hunting the Ram, part III

The corrupt Umno regime cannot leave Dato Ramli Yusuff alone. Umno cyber-sphere lackeys and attack dogs are now going for his blood, again.

These renewed attacks and smearing of Ramli's good name, are just days after he went against the corrupt and power mad Malaysian government most senior law enforcement agents.

Justice for the Ram, part III

Dato Ramli Yusuff has consistently maintained that he did nothing wrong. Yet, government officials protecting their political masters' interests and now allowed themselves and their good offices to be lackeys and running dogs for the corrupt establishments.

So corrupt lackeys for the Umno corrupt regime like AG and IGP trump up charges against Ramli, despite there was nothing to begin with but smear his good name in mud.

The courts convened and they let him go.

Two courts uphold Ramli Yusof acquittals

Posted on 25 November 2011 - 06:34pm
Last updated on 26 November 2011 - 09:54amPrintKUALA LUMPUR (Nov 25 2011) : The High Court here today upheld the acquittal of Bukit Aman Commercial Crimes Investigation Department former director Datuk Ramli Yusuff charged with the failure to declare ownership of company shares and interest in two properties.
Judge Datuk Ghazali Cha rejected the prosecution's appeal against a Sessions Court decision to acquit Ramli without having to enter his defence, on March 12 2010.
In his judgment, Ghazali said the decision by Judge M.Gunalan was accurate and contained no errors.
Furthermore, he said the prosecution had failed to establish a prima facie case against the respondent in the first three charges.
Ghazali said it was proven in the first count that Ramli did not have an interest in the two office buildings owned by Bonus Circle Sdn Bhd, a company in which his siblings were directors.
He added that Ramli was not a director of the company and did not hold any of its shares.
As for the second count of failing to declare 154,000 shares in Permaju Industries Berhad, the judge said it was clear that Ramli had no knowledge of the shares and its related documents.
In relation to the third count which involved Telekom shares, Ramli was not a shareholder at the time he was charged said Ghazali.
Ramli was charged with failing to declare his interest in the RM1.03 million office buildings and ownership of 154,000 and 20,000 shares in Permaju Industries and Telekom Malaysia Berhad respectively.
Ramli was represented by Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah while DPP Mohd Sophian Zakaria prosecuted.
In a separate High Court, Judge Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah also upheld Ramli's acquittal of a charge of holding a post in an agriculture company while still in public service, five years ago.
Mohamad Zabidin said Ramli did not commit any offence in the said case.
On Aug 20, Sessions Court Judge S.M. Komathy Suppiah had acquitted Ramli when the prosecution failed to establish a prima facie case against him.
Ramli was charged with being a director in Kinsajaya Sdn Bhd while still holding the post of director in the Bukit Aman department, on May 2 2006. -- Bernama

Former CCID director sues A-G, former IGP and 10 others

BY MAIZATUL NAZLINADatuk Ramli Yusuff.Datuk Ramli Yusuff.
KUALA LUMPUR: Former Commercial Crimes Investigation Department (CCID) director Datuk Ramli Yusuff is suing Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, former Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Musa Hassan and 10 others for wrongfully bringing two charges against him.
Ramli filed the suit in High Court registry via Messrs Vin Partnership on Friday.
Other than Abdul Gani and Musa, Ramli also named Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) head of prosecutions Datuk Nordin Hassan, deputy public prosecutor Kevin Anthony Morais, Dept Supt Chew Kam Soon and ACA investigating officers Chew Kam Soon, E. Sok One, Saiful Ezral Ariffin, Azmi Ismail and Wan Abdul Rahman as the defendants.
The other three defendants named were Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), Police and the Government.
In his statement of claim, Ramli said he was appointed as the CCID director on May 2, 2006 and was indicted on Nov 1, 2007 on charges under the Penal Code and Anti-Corruption Act 1997.
Ramli said between Dec 1994 and Dec 2001, he and Musa served the Malaysian Royal Police as officers in the Criminal Investigations Department in Bukit Aman here where he was Musa's immediate superior officer.
Ramli alleged that in or about 1998, Musa and Gani were implicated as having fabricated medical evidence in the "Black Eye" incident involving the assault and injury while in police custody of the then Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
He said at the same time Musa, Gani and Nordin were also involved in the investigation and prossecution of Anwar, which became infamously known as Sodomy 1.
The plaintiff said these individuals forged a relationship with each other in the face of allegations that they had colluded to fabricate evidence and manipulate the course of justice with regards to the charges brought against Anwar in which Musa became dubbed as the "Matress Carrier".
He said in or about 2001, he was directed by the then IGP Tan Sri Norian Mai to issue several show cause letters to Musa concerning breaches of discipline, procedure and protocol.
Ramli claimed that since Sodomy 1, Musa had a mecurial rise in the police and went on to become deputy IGP in 2005 and in Sept, 2006 Musa became an IGP and he became CCID director.
He alleged that in 2007, Gani and Musa enlisted Nordin, Kevin, various MACC officers and the police to cause investigations to be made against him and subsequently caused him to be charged for various offences.
The plaintiff alleged that when he was acquitted of all the charges, Gani in bad faith caused appealed against these acquittals at the High Court and Court of Appeal.
He claimed that subsequent to his acquittal and vindication by the Sessions Court, High Court and Court of Appeal, he met government leaders and requested the Government to restore his various rights and privileges.
Ramli said he also notified his intention to file legal suits against the defendants for his wrongful prosecution but he was asked to withhold his legal suit and various promises were made to him if he were to withhold his suit until after the 13th General Election which was held in May.
He said after the General Election, various promises that were previously made to him were not fulfilled.
The plaintiff claims against the defendants among others, for conspiracy, false and malicious investigation, abuse of power, abuse of prosecutorial discretion, malicious prosecution and prosecutorial misconduct who acted with ill-will recklessly or intentionally to injure him.
He said the defendants or any two or more of them also conspired with several mainstream newspapers namely Utusan Malaysia, Berita Harian, The Star and New Straits Times to defame and destroy his reputation and integrity.
Ramli is seeking special damages amounting to RM1.5mil; punitive damages of RM50mil; aggravated damages of RM50mil; exemplary damages of RM27mil; general damages; costs on solicitor-client basis and such further or other order or relief which the court thinks fit and proper.

Former IGP Musa Hassan apologised for his lies and misdemeanours.

by Din Merican
MalaysiaKini has been consistent in its follow through story about the Copgate Affair where, in 2007, former Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Musa Hassan and A-G Gani Patail with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had fixed up former Director of Commercial Crimes Investigations Dept, Dato Ramli Yusuff, on various trumped up and false charges. Since then Dato Ramli has been vindicated of all these charges. The Court in Kota Kinabalu even branded Musa Hassan a Liar of the highest order.

After Musa Hassan was not given a further extension to be IGP, he started attacking the Government and also tried to run down his successor and former IGP and current Malaysian Ambassador to France, Tan Sri Ismail Omar. Then, nearing the last GE13, Musa Hassan tried to endear himself to Pakatan Rakyat by further criticising the government. Quite a lot of people were taken in by Musa Hassan’s pretensions that he is now a repentant crime crusader.
But when Lawyer Rosli Dahlan was interviewed by FMT, Rosli did not mince his words in calling Musa  a Liar and a Manipulator. Rosli said – “A leopard doesn’t change its spots!”. Despite such scathing remarks against Musa Hassan, there was no defamation suit filed by him against Rosli. Not daring to take on Rosli, Musa turned his attack on Dato Ramli Yusuff by name calling him in the “black knight vs white knight” altercation by also implicating Tan Sri Robert Phang. Both Tan Sri Robert Phang and Dato Ramli wasted no time in suing Musa Hassan for lying and defaming them.
This morning, Musa Hassan admitted before High Court Judge Prasad Abraham that all his remarks against Dato Ramli were lies and fabrications. Musa was treated like a delinquent schoolboy when Judge Prasad made him apologise personally to Dato Ramli. Musa was also ordered to pay legal cost of RM10,000/-. What a shameless man this Musa Hassan has become!
This makes me think that liars and defamers must be getting away easy if they think they can tell lies and then later just apologise and pay nominal cost. That in essence was what Musa did. That is what Utusan Malaysia and the other mainstream newspapers have been doing. If that is what it is then, the law has been made into an ass.
Only 2 weeks ago the New Straits Times (NST) and the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) were ordered to pay Rosli Dahlan RM300,000in damages. While that seemed like a big sum of money, I know for a fact that Rosli had spent much more than that amount to vindicate his stained name.
So, now that the dominoes are falling for Musa Hassan and his cohorts, I suggest that Dato Ramli and Rosli Dahlan should sue Musa Hassan and A-G Gani Patail for what they did in 2007 to both Dato Ramli and Rosli Dahlan. They should file the mother of all defamation and conspiracy suits against all these rogues in government. They must do it, they owe it to all Malaysians to do it, so that the Rule of Law is upheld and the government may be rid of these rogues!”

Former IGP apologises to ex-CCID chief Ramli

Hafiz Yatim | 12:20PM Oct 30, 2013@
Former inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan has today apologised to former Commercial Crime Investigation (CCID) Director Ramli Yusuff over the former’s “white knight and black knight remark”.Musa apologised to Ramli inside the chambers of Shah Alam High Court judge Justice Prasadh Sandosham Abraham today.
The court has also ordered Musa to pay RM10,000 costs to Ramli.Musa had made the statement during a press conference organised by MyWatch, when he was the crime watchdog’s patron. Ramli was represented by Harvinderjit Singh while Musa was represented by lawyers Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman, and Shahrudin Ali. Abdul Aziz, who is the former MAS chairperson, told Malaysiakini said that parties met in chambers and agreed to settle the matter amicably.
“Both shook hands and apologised. There is minimal costs paid,” he said.
Ramli: I made 35 asset declarations
The former CCID chief filed the suit on February 28 this year, alleging what Musa said at a MyWatch press conference had contained defamatory, slanderous remarks and lies as reported by the news portal Free Malaysia Today(FMT) and a video clip also carried on the website.
Musa had urged Ramli to explain his amassed during the latter’s career. He had also claimed that Ramli had tried to portray himself as a “white knight” and Musa as a “black knight”.
The statements, the former CCID Director argued, portrayed him as dishonest, corrupt, had committed an offence punishable by a prison term and had fabricated and made false declarations regarding his assets and accumulated wealth.
Ramli claimed the words were vexatious, bereft of the truth, fallacious and totally uncalled for. They, he alleged were defamatory and issued with malicious intent despite being investigated by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission and acquitted of all charges.
Ramli said he made 35 asset declarations in his career as a Police  Officer and all had been approved by the Deputy IGPs, IGPs and the Home Affairs Ministry.

Hunting the Ram, part II

It is clear that Dato Ramli Yusuff has enemies. His enemies include those who are willing to use the system, all out to get and crucify him.

In the quest of being a true crime fighter, Ramli faces the multi level and facets of enemies. Some of them are high up in the Police Force and an IGP who was trying to protect the underworld.

These enemies within the system are his own colleagues of dirty cops, covering each other's back for sake of the 'establishment that they are trying to protect'.

Ramli did what a responsible police officer should. He declared all his assets and was transparent when his fellow comrades turned their backs against him and made him the villain instead.

So they lash and lunge him, as far as they can. Threw anything that they can get their hands to at the man.

However, Ramli wasn't that sort of chap. He was willing to face his enemies and nemesis and stare them right in the face.

And he did it by the book.

The establishment was out to get him because he was dangerous to them. He knew all the deals that the Big Guns were up to and gone about. All these include the master criminals of the underworld.

Time will tell, who is right and who are the evil lot.

The Ramli Yusuff story: the real reason why he was brought down

Sunday, 08 August 2010 Super Admin

Instead of taking action against those who are guilty of the more than RM8 billion loss in MAS, the MACC pursued the police officer, and lawyer, who investigated the MAS scandal and who had written to the Prime Minister to recommend that those involved should be brought to book.
Raja Petra Kamarudin
Dato Ramli Yusuff was the former Director of the CCID who is currently under suspension while he awaits the outcome of his trials. While serving as the Director of the CCID, Ramli was charged for various offences under the Anti-Corruption Act. At the time of his suspension he was involved in several ‘sensitive’ investigations against the Chinese underworld and the organised crime syndicate plus against a few prominent businessmen linked to those who walk in the corridors of power (the MAS issue being the most prominent of them).
One such investigation was against the Tangkak (Johor) crime syndicate controlling the loan shark or Ah Longactivities -- the Goh Cheng Poh case -- that had links to the highest hierarchy in the Malaysian police force or PDRM. After Ramli’s suspension, the Ah Long activities were able to flourish unhindered and it soon spread throughout the entire country to become the menace it is today.
In an unprecedented move, the AG’s Chambers refused to advise and prepare affidavits for the CCID officers. The ACA (now MACC) then circumvented police investigations and cleared Goh Cheng Poh. The AG then conceded to Goh Cheng Poh’s application for habeas corpus and he was released unconditionally while several police officers involved in intelligence gathering against the crime syndicate were instead charged for fabricated crimes.
To make it more dramatic, the MACC stormed lawyer Rosli Dahlan's office and arrested him so brutally on the eve of Hari Raya just to teach him a lesson for preparing the affidavits, which the AG had directed his officers not to prepare for the CCID. In that arrest, Rosli was injured and he subsequently lodged a police report about how he was assaulted in front of his entire office.
The message the powers-that-be was sending to these police officers and lawyer in particular and the police force in general was very chilling indeed. And that message was: do not attempt to touch the organised crime syndicate or else suffer the consequences.
Further to that Ramli was also investigating the losses in excess of RM8 billion that Malaysia Airlines (MAS) suffered during the time of Tajuddin Ramli. Again, lawyer Rosli had featured prominently in pursuing both criminal and civil cases against Tajuddin Ramli in defiance to the AG who wanted to just close the case and mark it NFA.
You can read more about the MAS issue in the nine links below.
Apparently, the AG was very unhappy that Ramli had sent the Prime Minister a letter recommending that those involved in the MAS scandal should face prosecution -- as this ‘undermined’ the AG Chambers that had directed that the case be referred to the Securities Commission for the offence to be compounded as a minor ‘technical offence’.
That was when they decided that Ramli had to be brought down.
Three charges for purported non-declaration of assets was brought against Ramli at the KL Sessions Court plus another charge in the KK Sessions Court in Sabah -- and the trials were conducted simultaneously.
The charge in KK was for Ramli’s alleged ‘abuse of power’ in using a police Cessna for his private use. It was also widely publicised that the charge named two civilians on board. That has since been dropped and that part of the charge has been amended.
It was also conveniently concealed from public knowledge that, at that time, Ramli was fully uniformed and on official duty as a police Director plus duly escorted by other uniformed police officers while attending pre-arranged and well-documented official meetings with a specified itinerary.
That the IGP appeared as the Prosecution’s 75th witness to give evidence against Ramli strengthened the allegation that this was a conspiracy to eliminate him. This is buttressed by the fact that even the judge remarked that the IGP’s evidence contradicted many of the evidence previously given by other senior officers and Directors.
The whole of the MACC investigation started with a MACC report vide R/No: 163/2007 dated 05/03/2007 serial Ref No. 030757 which was made by a MACC officer named Sok One a/l Esen. It is a matter of public record that Sok One is the same MACC officer who cleared Goh Cheng Poh of any connection with the PDRM hierarchy. He was also the same MACC officer who filed an affidavit to support Goh Cheng Poh’s affidavit to challenge the police officers’ affidavits.
It must be noted that Sok One was also the MACC officer who arrested and assaulted lawyer Rosli in his office on the eve of Hari Raya.
In the report that Sok One lodged against Ramli, he stated that he “received information which stated that on 25/6/2007 Dato’ Ramli Bin Yusuff, Director Police CCID Bukit Aman, had abused his powers as a senior police officer to force the villagers of Kg. Tanjung Labian Tunku, Lahad Datu, Sabah to vacate their land to allow a company Kinsajaya Sdn Bhd in which he (Dato Ramli) had interest in to carry out a project on the said land”.
Under cross-examination in court, Sok One admitted that he had recorded the information he received on a piece of paper but had destroyed that piece of paper. That paper was relevant evidence but had been destroyed.
The purported Informant, a village head by the name of Roslan Bin Abdul Hamid, has since appeared in court to give evidence. Under cross-examination, he confirmed that:
(a)           One ASP Chew Kam Soon from Bukit Aman had come to see him with greetings from the IGP Dato’ Musa Hassan. It is no coincidence that after this visit the MACC action against Ramli was initiated.
(b)           The land to be alienated to Kinsajaya is in Ulu Tunku whereas the Informant is purported to be the headman and representative of the villagers of Lok Buani. These are two different places. As such the allegation that the villagers of Lok Buani was intimidated to vacate their land was false and there was no cause to make any complaint against Ramli.
(c)           The Informant had lodged a police report on 4/6/2007 but had at no time mentioned the name of Dato’ Ramli Bin Yusuff. The extract of the court transcript  (pg. 564) states:
Q:  You did not mention the name of Dato’ Ramli Bin Yusuff in this report? .
A:  I agree.
(d)           There was no incident in the informant’s village of Lok Buani on 25/6/2007. The court transcript (pg 571) states:
Q: You agree between 4 June 2007 and 25 June 2007 nothing happened in the village by Kinsajaya Sdn Bhd?
A:  Agreed.
Q: Specifically on 25.6.2007 did anybody come to interfere with the peace and quiet of your kampong?
A:  No.                 
(e)           A large part of the MACC report was not his words. The court transcript (pg 572) states:
Q: The rest of the words are not your report?
A: No.
(f)            The Informant did not tell Sok One on the telephone that on 25/06/2007 Dato’ Ramli had abused his powers. The court transcript (pg. 573) states:
Q: I ask you the second time, did you tell the BPR (MACC) officer on the phone that on 25.6.2007 Dato’ Ramli Bin Yusoff had abused his powers in the kampong?
A: I did not tell the BPR (MACC) officer that.
From the above, it is clear that Sok One had lodged a false report against Ramli in that:
(a)           the Informant had never at any time mentioned his name in the report to the police or in any information to the MACC;
(b)           the Informant had never alleged of any incident in his village on 25.6.2007; and
(c)           the Informant did not call the MACC or Sok One on 25.6.2007.
It must be noted that the charge against Ramli has nothing to do with any alleged intimidation of any villager of Kg Lok Buani. The charge against Ramli is for the so-called crime of using of a police Cessna plane -- which, in the first place, he was duly entitled to, as Director of the CCID, and, furthermore, since he was at that time on official duty while fully uniformed and escorted by other uniformed police personnel.
It must further be noted that ASP Chew Kam Soon had, prior to the MACC report, visited this Informant with greetings from the IGP. ASP Chew Kam Soon is the same person referred to in several allegations concerning the transfer of officers of CID and CCID in collusion with certain gambling and crime syndicates that were being investigated at that time.
Throughout the KK trial, there were numerous instances of witnesses being intimidated and suborned by the MACC including the occasion when Brig-Gen (Rtd) Dato’ Yassin was charged for giving false evidence to serve as a warning to other witnesses not to ‘cross’ the MACC.
Finally, at the close of the prosecution case, the MACC DPP, Kevin Morais, who features prominently in this conspiracy, again amended the charge from “using the police aircraft to conduct an aerial survey over the land” to “using the police aircraft to fly in the vicinity of the land”. This second amendment was made shamelessly after the evidence of the pilot and the co-pilot showed that there was no flight over or at the alleged land that Ramli is purported to have an interest in.
What is even more interesting is the role of the MACC in this whole thing. The MACC is being used as the ‘hatchet man’ in the move to get rid of Ramli. Instead of taking action against those who are guilty of the more than RM8 billion loss in MAS, the MACC pursued the police officer, and lawyer, who investigated the MAS scandal and who had written to the Prime Minister to recommend that those involved should be brought to book.

Ram the Majestic Ruler of the Mountains

Ram is correct term for the male bighorn sheep. These animals are named for their large, curved horns they use to show dominance. Bighorn sheep are found in North American mountains ranging from Canada to New Mexico.

Male bighorns can weigh between 127 to 316 pounds (58 to 143 kg) and stand 5 to 6 feet (1.5 to 1.8 m) tall. Rams can be colored light, dark or grayish brown with a white rump. Females or ewes also have horns, but they are of a smaller size. They live in herds spending much of their day grazing.

Rams use their horns to clash with other males in a show of strength. During the fall, the animals run into each other head-first for the right to mate with a female. The battle can continue for hours, even a full day, until one of the animals walks away.
