Parliament In Brief: ‘No need to blur images’

28 Mar 2007

MALAYSIA will not ask Google Earth to blur images of the country’s military facilities to avoid terrorist attacks. Defence Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said doing so would indirectly pin-point their location anyway.

"The difference in, or lack of, pixelation of images of the military facilities compared to the surrounding areas will make it easy for visual identification." In his written reply to Datuk Dr James Dawos Mamit (BN-Mambong), Najib said the images were provided worldwide commercially.

No quizzing ex-ACA chief

IT’S final. The Parliamentary Select Committee on Integrity will not call the former Sabah Anti-Corruption Agency chief Mohd Ramli Manan and director-general Zulkipli Mat Noor to give information. Committee chairman Tan Sri Bernard Dompok said the select committee had discussed the letter written to it by Ramli’s counsel stating Ramli’s willingness to face the committee. "The committee feels that we are quite happy with what we had decided (last week) and so there is no need for us to review it," Dompok added.

Managing money

UMNO Youth plans to introduce programmes to help working young adults manage their finances. Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said action will be taken if reports on more youths on the brink of bankruptcy are true. He was commenting on a news report by a Malay daily yesterday on the need to control bankruptcy cases as a result of credit card usage among youth. Utusan Malaysia had quoted Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak as saying that steps must be taken so that the issue doesn’t get out of hand.
