Subject: Beauty queen of only 23, she was 50 times hotter in person.




Apa khabar? Ringgit is at an all-time low this week. Do we lure Adam Levine for that green card or fight to make a difference?
Sorry to change the subject, but with all these memes going around the Adam Levine saga, it’s truly getting harder and harder to breathe (from laughter).
We can blow your mind too, Adam.

What’s the tea in Malaysia?

Landmark decision made last week!
Part of the benefit of contributing to SOCSO is that if an accident took place at work, during the commute to and from work, or during recess, you (or your next of kin) will be reimbursed – Section 24(1) of the Employees’ Social Security Act (Socso Act). 

All along, the understanding was that the commute covered is within the work area – for example, if you work in Bangsar, and you live in Bangi, and if anything were to happen during the commute between these two places, you will be covered under the Socso Act.
However, in a landmark decision made this week, it was unanimously decided by the Court of Appeal that Section 24(1)(a) also covered commuting from your hometown to your workplace in another town, even if this travel was during your off day.

*Add a neutral headline that doesn’t sound like we are sceptical*
As of July 2022, there were already a total of 19 deaths in custody. Out of these, 8 died in the hospital, 2 died while on the way to the hospital, and 9 died in the lockup.
Ok, but what’s with the random numbers? The Minister of Health Malaysia (MOH), Khairy Jamaluddin, stated that it is the standard operating procedure for inmates to be referred to the hospital should they need medical attention. In that regard, bravo on the care that’s being given to our ex-premier, Najib. Barely a month since he’s gone to prison* and he’s visited the hospital at least 3 times now.

Inmate vs innocent folks. Going back to the random numbers above – 9 died in lockup. Why wasn’t medical attention given to them? Both the MOH and Home Ministry denied special treatment given to Najib, a guilty inmate, but why are we having B40 rakyat, still innocent (until proven guilty), still dying in custody? 
Dude who wanted elections during flood, acquitted
This week, Zahid Hamidi was acquitted of his bribe charges. The High Court judge ruled that the prosecution has failed to establish a prima facie case against Zahid Hamidi. 

Decision on the Yayasan Akalbudi case (47 charges) is still pending.  

On a related note, some opposition MPs have called for answers on Zahid’s acquittal, one of them being Lim Guan Eng, who also has upcoming cases against him for dishonest misappropriation of property. 
Coming Soon – The Floods Part 2
We have all watched The Floods, now the not-awaited sequel is coming to your streets.

Datuk Ambiga Sreenivasan along with a group of residents in Kuala Lumpur have decided to file a lawsuit suit to DBKL and the Federal Territories Ministry to get some clarity on the flood mitigation plans. This is after the group sent a letter of demand (LOD) to KL mayor, Datuk Seri Mahadi Che Ngah, and Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim that went unanswered.

What’s next DBKL?  Perhaps they will finally provide the passwords for all the flood Hotspots around Klang Valley. 
This Love can be sued
While adultery is technically not a criminal offence in Malaysia, enticing a married woman can get you charged under Section 498 of the Penal Code. So, would Adam Levine be safe here? 
Well, you can sue the adulterer. Section 58(1) of the Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act 1976 allows the wife/husband, upon filing for divorce, to sue both the adulterers (husband/wife and third party).
General Elections General Info
(GEGI with whatsrightMY) 
As a general rule of thumb, a general election should be held in the 5th calendar year, unless it is dissolved earlier by the YDPA. In what circumstances will the YDPA dissolve the Parliament? When there is a motion of no confidence, loss of supply, or at the request of the Prime Minister. (Deja vu: Question of the Week Issue 6).

The first session of the 14th parliament session started on July 16, 2018. Therefore, technically, we have until July 16, 2023, till GE15. However, there are instances where a general election can be held less than 5 years before its due. Despite numerous rumours and dense statements by some parliamentarians about having elections during the flood, the key to dissolving the parliament is still held by the Prime Minister. Over to you, Ismail Sabri.
