When silence is not golden nor elegant. Diau jenuh ukai reti nya manah sereta begaya.

It has been months since Sarawak Report (and now its Iban language mirror site, Sarawak Report in Iban) published startling exposé on the wanton corruption, nepotism, cronyism and indiscriminate abuse of power of the Chief Minister of Sarawak.

Sarawakians of all backgrounds have read these reports which have now become public knowledge and fodder for the Malaysian blogosphere. Even BN politicians, Council Negri members and Parliamentarians are quietly discussing these revelations in hushed and whispered tones in the hallowed sanctums of the halls of power. The Opposition has formally lodged complaints with the MACC, which would certainly have been secreted to the PM's immediate attention. These reports contain highly sensitive information and damning incriminating evidence that would be admissible in a Malaysian court of law.

In short, the mountain of evidence against Taib is too overwhelming to ignore.

In any democratic country in the world, such revelations would have resulted in public outcry, thanks to the unfettered media and freedom of the press, leading to an official public inquiry. But not so in Malaysia.

MACC has not taken any public action. None of the mainstream media has said a word. Not a single BN politician has alluded publicly to the revelations (although ALL of them know). The man himself, Abdul Taib Mahmud, remains completely silent. And the latest is that the Speaker of the Parliament has rejected a question from a member on the matter.

The proverb, "Silence is golden", refers to the silence maintained by a just person who has been wronged or wrongfully accused. Abdullah Badawi gave the phrase a new twist and added the word 'elegant'.

In the case of the Chief Minister of Sarawak, his silence is neither golden nor elegant because as a public servant, he is bound by oath and the conventions of public service (which include integrity, responsibility, accountability and transparency) to engage, rebut and dispel any accusations of wrongdoing hurled against him. To date, neither he nor his State Government has addressed the elephant in the room except issue a gag order to the local press. Why gag the press if you are innocent and have nothing to fear?

The Chief Miinister's silence is deafening. Such deafening silence, if not broken, can only point one to a singular conclusion: his thorough and undisputed culpability.

Prove the reports wrong, YAB Chief Minister, and clear your name. It does not require many words to speak the truth.


Udah beberapa bulan bekau Sarawak Report ngeluar ke pengawa makai suap, enggau salah kena kuasa ti di kereja Kepala Menteri Sarawak.

Rakyat menoa Sarawak ari pupu bansa enggau pupu jalai pengidup nyau ka sampal udah macha berita tu ti lalu nyadi berita ti tebilang ba dunya internet. Berita tu ukai semina di temu ba menoa kitai tu aja, tang di serata dunya. Bala kaban politik, kaban Kunsil Negeri enggau kaban Parlimen pan bisi mega di dinga betelai enggau pangan diri pasal jako tudoh tu. Nambah ke berita-berita ti di sadong baka tu, bala kaban parti penyakal mega ngena chara ti patut ngeripot penyalah tu ngagai upis penagang penyalah makai suap (MACC). Ripot-ripot ngagai upis MACC nya sekeda ari penerang ti betul sereta amat lalu di kira kelalu sensitive ti patut di becara ke dalam court undang-undang menoa Malaysia.

Disebut enggau jako pandak, penerang enggau pengamat jako tudoh dikena ngelaban Taib udah kelalu mayuh lalu enda tau di seliah ke ngapa.

Dalam sebarang menoa berdemokrasi, penerang ti bendar baka tu tau ngujong ke orang ti kena tudoh nya di kutok beamat-amat, lalu terima kasih ngagai media enggau chara bejako ti nadai besekat (freedom of speech), ti mega tau ngujong ke orang ti di tudoh nya di pansik ari asuh perintah. Tang pekara ti bakatu enda ulih nyadi di Malaysia.

Upis MACC lalu bedau ngambi nama-nama tindak di kena ngamat ke jako tudoh dalam berita nya. Media penabur berita mega nadai udah nabur ke berita tu ngagai rakyat. Pia mega, bala kaban politik parti BN empu di temu suah besilat sereta nyeliah ke diri ari meri penerang (taja SEMUA kaban BN nemu pasal berita tu. Datai ke Taib Mahmud empu pan nadai engkeretik ba perkara ti bekaul enggau berita tu. Kala mega sekali Speaker Parlimen enggai nerima jako tanya ari siko kaban parlimen ti betanya ke pengamat berita tu dalam dewan parlimen.

Jako sempama “pendiau enda engkeretik nya berega”, dikena manding ke siko-siko orang ti enda (berani) engkeretik ketegal ti udah kala ngereja penyalah, tau ke udah di tudoh. Abdullah Bedawi kala di dinga bemain-main enggau jako sempama tu leboh iya nambah ke leka jako “begaya”.

Tang ba kes Kepala Menteri Sarawak, pendiau iya ti enda engkeretik nadai mai reti “berega” ngagai iya empu, tau ke pendiau iya ti “begaya”. Kebuah munyi nya, laban Kepala Menteri endang ditanggam jako sumpah mangku pengawa (oath) genap kali lebuh iya menang bepilih, lalu mega ditanggam semoa ator ti bekaul enggau pengawa ti di pangku iya nya (tu nyangkaum pengelurus ati enggau runding maya bekereja, tau dikarap ke, sereta nadai utai dipelalai ke) nitih, mantah sereta nyakal sebarang jako tudoh ti di tuju ke ngagai iya. Nyentok ke sari tu iya empu enggau perintah ti betuai ke iya nadai berani nyebut berita tau ke jako tudoh nya, tang suah agi mampol mulut bala pengarang berita ngena “gag order” tiap kali sida betanya ke pengamat berita nya dalam dewan. Nama kebuah mampol mulut bala pengarang berita, enti kitai endang nadai penyalah, lalu enda takut ke sebarang tudoh?

Uji sakal meh ulih nuan jako tudoh nya, YAB Kepala Menteri, ngambi ke di kena nuan meresi nama nuan empu. Enti nuan bisi pemendar, tau ke pengamat, enda ibuh bejako mayuh.

While many might say that this would cause a shift in the focus from
education to athletics, it is clear that education remains a top priority
for the parents as evidenced by the grades these
athletes maintained. If you think about it, it's a wonder that it doesn't happen all the time.
If everything looks pretty good it's time to determine what
kind of finish you have on your hardwood flooring.
