View the videos below on Bersih 3.0 coverage and it show some insight details of the rally.
There’s so much stories and news about the Police Car being overturned by the Bersih 3.0 protesters but it’s only merely accident after the police driver pass out.
The police personnel who was driving the police car which crashed into several Bersih 3.0 protesters said he was not fully concious when the accident occurred. He was “confused” as he was losing a lot of blood after a “hard object hit his head on the left side”.
It’s not that the Police personnel want to ramp to anyone and it’s not that the Bersih 3.0 protesters want to overturned the Police Car but because someone claimed that there’s victim under the car so the Police CAR was overturned to safe live.
The police personnel who was driving the police car which crashed into several Bersih 3.0 protesters said he was not fully concious when the accident occurred.
Speaking to reporters at his hospital bed at the Kuala Lumpur general hospital, Mohamad Kamil Paimin (right) said he was “confused” as he was losing a lot of blood after a “hard object hit his head on the left side”.
He added that he had passed out after that and came to after receiving treatment at the hospital.
“I don’t even know the car crashed. I had already passed out,” he said.
Mohamad Kamil, who is a corporal based in Hulu Terengganu, said he was heading to Dataran from the police training centre when he was caught in the melee.
“I am unfamiliar with the roads. The protesters were throwing things at the car. I don’t know what happened to the windows on the driver and front passengers side, all I know is that the windshield was smashed,” he said.
The 23-year-old, who was seen being taken out of the car and protected by protesters, also agreed when reporters suggested that he had panicked.
Mohd Kamil received six stitches for his head injury.
Videographer saved cop out of ‘humanity’
Meanwhile, Al Hijrah videographer Mohd Azmi Mohd Salleh said that he was compelled to jump in front of the protesters to save Mohamad Kamil out of a “sense of humanity”.
“People say I wanted to be a hero. No, I helped him out of a sense of humanity. No one was there to help him at the time. He was alone and passed out and there was a lot of protesters,” he said.
He said the protesters had pulled him aside and assaulted him until his crash helmet slipped off, so much so that he received nine stitches on his scalp.
“I managed to slip away from the crowd, and found that I was bleeding profusely,” said Mohd Azmi, who had still managed to send his footage of the crash to his TV station.
He said he was wearing the crash helmet as he arrived at the scene on his motorbike, having videotaped Mohamad Kamil’s police car prior to the crash.
“He was not speeding. He had passed out and the car went out of control,” he said, corroborating the police officer’s story.
Mohd Azmi, who showed his bloodied media tag, had earlier received a visit from Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein, inspector-general of police Ismail Omar and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.
The trio also visited traffic police lance corporal Mohd Nasir Mansor, who was also injured during the rally yesterday.
There were some brave hero throw the tear gas away from the crowds to minimized the effect on the crowds @ Bersih 3.0!
This is said to be very powerful tear gas compared to 709′s.
Water Cannon @ Bersih 3.0
Is this the phone or signal jammer that causing most of the phone not reachable and can’t access to internet during Bersih 3.0? Personally I can’t access the internet and very difficult to call out or receive call. Could this be the device to cause the interference that affect all the telco signals? Hmmm…

KUALA LUMPUR: Election watchdog Bersih 3.0 has no control over what politicians say at its public events, its co-chairman S Ambiga said.
“We did not know that they [opposition] leaders were going to speak. Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim came up and spoke to the crowd. There were groups in the crowd which wanted to hear the opposition leaders speak.
“I cannot control what they say,” she said amidst reports that opposition leaders had incited the crowd to breach the barriers at Dataran Merdeka during the Bersih 3.0 rally yesterday.
She added that the plan for the gathering did not allow for politicians to speak.
In fact, she said that had Bersih known that politicians were going to deliver speeches, it would not allow them to do so.
“We wouldn’t have allowed them to speak,” she told a press conference today.
Yesterday, the peaceful assembly of about 80,000 people turned violent at about round 3pm when a few protesters broke through the barriers at Dataran Merdeka, which was sealed off.
The “attack” on the barricades prompted the police to fire tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowd.
The clash between the police and the protesters lasted for about four hours.
No political speeches
There were many news reports which singled out PKR deputy president Azmin Ali and Anwar for inciting the crowd to breach the barrier.
Azmin reportedly told the crowd to reclaim Dataran which “did not belong to Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL)”.
Bersih steering committee member, Maria Chin Abdullah, who also present, said the event was to feature only speeches from Ambiga, co-chairman A Samad Said and songs.
“Before April 28, all the NGOs agreed to exclude any political speeches by political leaders… that was also agreed upon by the political parties,” she said.
Ambiga said that she could not comment on Azmin’s actions as she did not witness it in person and asked for it to be investigated.
“But Anwar [when he was on the truck with Ambiga] did not order the crowd to charge,” she said.
She added that Bersih had the last word, and which was to ask the crowd to disperse.
“Let me tell you what happened: I was on the truck and we told the crowd to disperse. We were moving into Jalan Tun Perak to tell the crowd to disperse in stages.
“Then someone charged [at the barriers]; it had nothing to do with us; we want to know as well.
“In fact, it is against what Bersih had announced,” she added.
‘Work of agent provocateurs’
Ambiga said that this could have been the work of agent provocateurs and called for a full inquiry by Suhakam into the whole protest.
Ambiga said the crowd was under control until the tear gas was fired.
“What I saw from the truck was amazing: people were gathered peacefully.
“All purported acts of violence took place only after the tear gas was fired; until then we have complete control,” she said, giving credit to PAS Unit Amal which provided most of the security for the day.
She said that such large crowds can be controlled as can be seen during Thaipusam and Wesak Day celebrations.
Ambiga also asked why the train stations were shut during the protest when police were dispersing the crowd after 3pm.
“These people wanted to leave but couldn’t. Who gave (RapidKL) the order to do so?” she said.
On the incident where a police car was overturned near Sogo, she said:
“There were some accounts that the car was overturned because the crowd believed that someone was under the car. Don’t just publish the picture of an overturned car. Please don’t make assumptions,” she said.
She again called for a full inquiry into the rally to identify who were the trouble-makers.
As for organising another rally, Ambiga said that nothing has been decided yet, adding that the group will continue to highlight the irregularities in the electoral process.
“The government must answer and not deflect [attention] from the issue just because of the violence (at the rally).
“Some 250 000 Malaysians turned up to demand for free and fair elections; what is the government’s response?” she asked.
Bersih chief medical officer, Dr Farouk Musa, said that 117 demonstrators were treated for minor injuries and dehydration.
He added that those who were hospitalised had been discharged this morning.

BERSIH started out as the Joint Action Committee for Electoral Reform, which was formed in July 2005, and the coalition’s objective was to push for a thorough reform of the electoral process in Malaysia.
The Beginning of BERSIH BERSIH was officially launched on 23 November 2006 in the Malaysian Parliament building lobby. It was attended by poitical party leaders, civil society groups and NGOs, including PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, PKR vice-president Sivarasa Rasiah, DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng, DAP National Publicity Secretary and MP for Seputeh Teresa Kok, PAS deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa, PAS Youth chief Salahudin Ayub, PSM Secretary-General S. Arutchelvan, Malaysian Trade Union Congress Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud, WDC executive director Maria Chin Abdullah and SUARAM executive director Yap Swee Seng.
Bersih 8 Points or 8 Demands
Bersih’s calls are summarised in the following 8 points:
1. Clean the electoral roll (BERSIH kan Senarai Undi (Daftar Pemilih))
The electoral roll is marred with irregularities such as deceased persons and multiple persons registered under a single address or non-existent addresses. The electoral roll must be revised and updated to wipe out these ‘phantom voters’. The rakyat have a right to an electoral roll that is an accurate reflection of the voting population.
In the longer term, BERSIH 2.0 also calls for the EC to implement an automated voter registration system upon eligibility to reduce irregularities.
2. Reform postal ballot (Reformasikan Undi Pos)
The current postal ballot system must be reformed to ensure that all citizens of Malaysia are able to exercise their right to vote. Postal ballot should not only be open for all Malaysian citizens living abroad, but also for those within the country who cannot be physically present in their voting constituency on polling day. Police, military and civil servants too must vote normally like other voters if not on duty on polling day.
The postal ballot system must be transparent. Party agents should be allowed to monitor the entire process of postal voting.
3. Use of indelible ink (Gunakan Dakwat Kekal)
Indelible ink must be used in all elections. It is a simple, affordable and effective solution in preventing voter fraud. In 2007, the EC decided to implement the use of indelible ink. However, in the final days leading up to the 12th General Elections, the EC decided to withdraw the use of indelible ink citing legal reasons and rumours of sabotage.
BERSIH 2.0 demands for indelible ink to be used for all the upcoming elections. Failure to do so will lead to the inevitable conclusion that there is an intention to allow voter fraud.
4. Minimum 21 days campaign period (Tempoh Berkempen Minima 21 Hari)
The EC should stipulate a campaign period of not less than 21 days. A longer campaign period would allow voters more time to gather information and deliberate on their choices. It will also allow candidates more time to disseminate information to rural areas. The first national elections in 1955 under the British Colonial Government had a campaign period of 42 days but the campaign period for 12th GE in 2008 was a mere 8 days.
5. Free and fair access to media (Akses Media Yang Bebas & Adil)
It is no secret that the Malaysian mainstream media fails to practice proportionate, fair and objective reporting for political parties of all divide. BERSIH 2.0 calls on the EC to press for all media agencies, especially state-funded media agencies such as Radio and Television Malaysia (RTM) and Bernama to allocate proportionate and objective coverage for all potlical parties.
6. Strengthen public institutions (Kukuhkan Institusi Awam)
Public institutions must act independently and impartially in upholding the rule of law and democracy. Public institutions such as the Judiciary, Attorney-General, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Agency (MACC), Police and the EC must be reformed to act independently, uphold laws and protect human rights.
In particular, the EC must perform its constitutional duty to act independently and impartially so as to enjoy public confidence. The EC cannot continue to claim that they have no power to act, as the law provides for sufficient powers to institute a credible electoral system.
7. Stop corruption (Hentikan Rasuah)
Corruption is a disease that has infected every aspect of Malaysian life. BERSIH 2.0 and the rakyat demand for an end to all forms of corruption. Current efforts to eradicate corruption are mere tokens to appease public grouses. We demand that serious action is taken against ALL allegations of corruption, including vote buying.
8. Stop dirty politics (Hentikan Politik Kotor)
Malaysians are tired of dirty politics that has been the main feature of the Malaysian political arena. We demand for all political parties and politicians to put an end to gutter politics. As citizens and voters, we are not interested in gutter politics; we are interested in policies that affect the nation.
The coalition is wholly unsatisfied with the PSC report, and has written a response to each of the 22 recommendations put forth in the report. The response is here. In light of this unsatisfactory PSC report, the coalition has announced BERSIH 3.0.
BERSIH 3.0 will take the form of a sit-in (“duduk bantah” in Bahasa Malaysia) on April 28th 2012, and will take place across Malaysia and throughout the world. In addition to the demands of the previous BERSIH demonstrations, BERSIH 3.0 has three demands, namely:
1. The Election Commission must resign, as it has failed in its responsibility and has lost the confidence of the public.
2. The electoral process must be cleaned before the 13th General Elections.
3. Invite international observers to observe the 13th General Elections.
Through BERSIH 3.0, we will continue our struggle for clean and fair elections, assembling and expressing our views peacefully as are our rights as enshrined in the Federal Constitution.
Where? Dataran Merdeka (location not firm as Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) stood firm by its decision to prohibit Bersih from using Dataran Merdeka for its rally, wait for more updates from Bersih.org)
Perhimpunan Hijau 3.0
Himpunan Hijau defended its decision to hold its third rally the same day as electoral reform group Bersih 2.0, saying that a “massive” gathering was needed to convince the government to reject Lynas Corp’s refinery in Gebeng, Pahang.

Dataran Merdeka has been barricaded by 3 layers of fencing! Still proceed with the Bersih 3.0 Sit-In / Duduk Bantah or change to alternative location as suggested (Cheras Stadium, Titiwangsa Stadium, Bukit Jalil Stadium and Stadium Merdeka)?
KUALA LUMPUR: KL mayor Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail said Dataran Merdeka and all roads leading to it would be closed from 6am today to 6am on Sunday.
In a statement yesterday, he added that no gathering would be allowed at the square without his written consent.
In Putrajaya, meanwhile, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said the police have been instructed to handle the planned Bersih 3.0 rally tomorrow in the context of security should the organisers be adamant in using Dataran Merdeka as the venue.
He said the police needed to assess how a rally at Dataran Merdeka would affect security.
“I have asked them to look at the possibility of this thing not going to Stadium Merdeka and proceeding to Dataran Merdeka.
Cordoned off: Dataran Merdeka and all roads leading to it would be closed from 6am today to 6am on Sunday.
“If they do continue to go to the street and Dataran Merdeka, that is an issue for the police to look into,” he said here yesterday.
Hishammuddin said the issue was not whether the Government wanted to stop the rally.
“It is just the location. We have offered the alternative venues … better venues.
“I think it is quite unreasonable for them to refuse the alternative venues which come with the assurance that they will go (there) in an orderly, speedy and safer (manner),” he said, referring to the offers of Cheras Stadium, Titiwangsa Stadium, Bukit Jalil Stadium and Stadium Merdeka.
Hishammuddin said the organisers still had time to accept the offer.
“We are giving them the room and if they proceed (with having the rally at Dataran Merdeka), that is nothing new to the police as it has happened before.
“We are still looking for ways for them to accept (one of) the stadiums that have been offered to them,” he said.

“Proton Preve, touch it to believe it.. ” Opps some friend just notify me (via facebook) that the quality of the Proton Prevé really need to be improved and nuff say it’s still Proton?
Proton has unveiled its sleek new Preve and describes the turbo-charged car as its most technologically advanced vehicle.
The Preve pronounced pray-vay which means “to prove”, was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the Mines Resort City here yesterday.
“Over 27 years in the automotive industry, Proton has progressed by leaps and bounds and produced many models for both local and international markets.
“Proton Preve has been developed in accordance with global standards of quality and safety with many class leading features, which in combination with its competitive price, makes it a truly attractive car to own,” he said before launching the vehicle.
Unleashed: Najib giving the thumbs up for the Proton Preve yesterday. Looking on are (from left) Proton executive chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Khamil Jamil, International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed, Proton adviser Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Proton group managing director Datuk Seri Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir.
All three variants of the Preve the Executive, Executive CVT and the Premium priced between RM59,990 and RM72,990 come with a five-year or 150,000km warranty, whichever comes first.
The 1.6 Charged Fuel Efficiency (CFE) engine is Proton’s first turbo-charged engine and has an economical 6.6 litre/100km fuel consumption rating and a 10,000km service interval.
The Preve is available in six colours Blue Lagoon, Fire Red, Tranquility Black, Solid White, Genetic Silver and Elegant Brown.
Earlier in Kuala Selangor, Najib said the local plantation industry needed to be restructured to be more efficient, competitive and attractive for locals to work in.
“We need to make it more attractive, especially for the locals.
“According to statistics, the total number of workers in the palm oil sector totals more than 450,000. Of this, only 83,000 are locals,” he said before launching Sime Darby Plantation’s new Central Housing Complex (CHC) at Tennamaram Estate in Bestari Jaya.

LG added another member to its ever-growing Optimus family, when it unveiled the Stylish yet built with great performance Optimus SOL. The LG Optimus SOL (E730) gets its name from the 3.8inch WVGA “Ultra AMOLED” display which offer high clarity and visibility even when viewed under bright sunlight thus enables you to easily read your tweets, or view pictures in direct sunlight with less image quality degradation.
“SOL” as you may or may not already know means sun in various languages.
General specifications of LG E730 Optimus SOL are as follows:
• Dimensions: 122.5 x 62.5 x 9.8
• Processor: 1 Ghz processor, Qualcomm MSM8255
• OS: Android v2.3
• Internal memory: 2 GB RAM, 512 MB RAM
• External memory: microSD up to 32 GB, 2 GB included
• Screen size: 3.8
• Display resolution: 480 x 800
• Display colours: 16 m
• Battery: 1500 mah standard Li-Ion battery
The handset weighs around 110 grams which is quite a feathery weight in compared to other cell phones. The device has a candy bar design, it means it is full in rounded rectangular shape and sturdy structure.
At its center is a bright, glossy 3.8-inch Super Amoled display. Running on a single-core 1GHZ CPU processor with Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, the Optimus SOL also has a 5MP camera and a decent profile of 9.8mm. The LG Optimus SOL also features LG’s new power management system called “Dark UI”. Dark UI uses less white light in the phone’s interface allowing battery life to be extended. This will increase the battery life by about 20 to 30%!
The LG Optimus SOL is 9.8 millimeters (0.39 inch) thick, is made out of plastic, but fortunately, the choice of materials makes the smartphone lightweight and easy to use with a single hand.
There are three capacitive buttons underneath the display screen, a front-facing VGA camera above it, the volume rocker on the phone’s side, while on the top you will find a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack, a microUSB port with removable cover as well as a lock button. A nice surprise is that you also have a secondary microphone for noise cancellation, a thing uncommon to handsets of this class.
The LG Optimus SOL is the first LG to boast an AMOLED display, or “Ultra AMOLED” as they call it, and we can see it does its job pretty well. The 3.8-inch WVGA display manages to deliver intense, saturated colors, enough to make watching videos a pleasure, but it also has good viewing angles and outdoor visibility, even on a sunny day.
The LG Optimus SOL comes with an average, 5-megapixels camera with autofocus but, unfortunately, no flash. The interface offers a number of shooting scenes, face detection, and the ability to take panorama photos. Outdoor shots have a pretty accurate exposure level and color reproduction, although there is a noticeable lack of detail. Indoor pictures are definitely worse, with lots of digital noise and almost no fine detail. You photos will look acceptable only if there is enough light around.
In terms of connectivity, the LG Optimus SOL is very well covered, as no feature that you would ever need is absent. You get a 7.2Mbps 3G radio, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n with support for Wi-Fi Direct and DLNA, as well as Bluetooth 3.0. The GPS module needs about 30 seconds to locate you from a cold start, and about two seconds after that.
The call quality of the LG Optimus SOL is very good on both sides of the line, with rich, distinctive tones in the earpiece even when the volume is set to the maximum, while the secondary microphone gets rid of all background noises making voices sound clear and distinguishable.
Other Additional Facilities Available Are
It has added features like Voice Memo, Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail, SNS integration, Predictive text input, YouTube, Digital compass along with supporting various media file formats like MP2, WAV, WMV, MP4, H.263, H.264 and eACC+.
LG Optimus SOL (E730) is a class of the device with excellent display screen. The slick design and light weight plus the Ultra AMOLED display is definitely a plus, as it is very pleasing to the eye. The device is also quite slim, lightweight, fits well in the hand, and its call quality is above average.
It’s a good mid range phone that you might want to get. This handset is good buy for those who are looking for a change to android smartphone and yet want an excellent display plus sleek design phone.

Price of the premium RON97 petrol went up 10sen to RM2.90! The price of RON97 fluctuates as the Government has lifted the subsidy for this petrol.
He said the price for diesel remain unchanged at RM1.80 per litre. Last week, the government had announced that the price of RON95 petrol would remain at RM1.90 per litre despite the hike in global oil prices recently.
So RON 97 Petrol Price increase only can pump RON 95 if not take public transport or car pool lo? Or should take bicycle? Good for keeping fit too!
Really? Price of RON97 petrol will change every first of the month? I don’t think so after increase it will remain increased and will hardly decrease! Right? Every day float? Every month float? So far I only see once reduce and all increase!
KUALA LUMPUR: The price of premium petrol RON97 has gone up by 10 sen. It’s now RM2.90 per litre.
Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia (PDAM) deputy president Datuk Zulkifli Abdul Mokti said the increase was due to the soaring global fuel price that had hit USD120 (RM366) per barrel.
“Since the price of RON97 is floated according to world market prices from July 16 last year, it has seen a monthly review based on global prices and is adjusted at the beginning of each month.
“The 10 sen increase is purely in relation to global fuel prices,” he said.
He added that the prices of RON95 and diesel would remain the same.
