I took a video this evening to reflect that improvement had finally been done after few years of problematic and dangerous conditions, and after few weeks of persistent reporting made against this crisis of public safety.


The situation of human congestion which was very bad at the center road divider zone was no longer seen in the past few days after LTA did some improvements during last week. I can say that the risk of death of pedestrian is reduced now to a more acceptable level.

My video showed quite a lot of risking jay-walking by pedestrians but these are not the main issue still. 

As another new MRT station is up-coming here at Bugis, pedestrian traffic is expected to increase, I still strongly urge LTA to implement a pedestrian tunnel to replace this traffic light crossing, for the benefit of pedestrian and safety in longer term.

There is still a slight issue, that a few more meters of railing opposite the one side which had already been removed, can be further removed, to get better effects. I had indicated this and showed the remaining problem within this video itself.

I spend only less than a minute now to cross this crossing myself, as compared against the average or 15 mins in many previous occasions over the years.

Malaysia opposition's Anwar freed of sodomy charges

Sapa-AP | 09 January, 2012 07:08

Malaysia's opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim speaks during the "Free Anwar" rally in Kuala Lumpur January 6, 2012.

Malaysia's High Court acquitted opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim of sodomizing a former aide, citing unreliable DNA evidence in a verdict Monday that surprised supporters who saw the case as an attempt to sideline him.

Anwar has long maintained that Prime Minister Najib Razak's ruling coalition concocted the charge to damage his chances of leading the opposition to an election victory. Najib, who is expected to call for national elections sometime this year, denies plotting against Anwar.

Najib's administration said the judgment showed that Malaysia's legal system was free from government interference, despite claims to the contrary by opposition activists.

The case rested mainly on testimony by Anwar's 26-year-old accuser, Saiful Bukhari Azlan, and semen samples found on Saiful's body that investigators said matched Anwar's DNA.

High Court Judge Mohamad Zabidin Diah said his decision was founded on concerns that the DNA evidence was tainted.

"The court at this stage could not with 100 percent certainty exclude the possibility that the (DNA) sample is not compromised," Mohamad Zabidin told the court. "Therefore it is not safe to rely on the (DNA) sample. There is no evidence to corroborate" the charge.
A crowd of Anwar's supporters shouted "Allahu Akbar," or "God is great" after the judge finished reading the verdict. Members of Anwar's family burst into tears and hugged him.

"Thank God justice has prevailed," a jubilant Anwar told reporters. "I have been vindicated. To be honest, I am a little surprised."

However, questions lingered over whether the legal saga was over, as chief prosecutor Yusof Zainal Abiden said he had not decided whether to appeal the acquittal.

Police outside the court reported that after the verdict was delivered, a small blast wounded a man on a road nearby. Authorities indicated it was a homemade explosive, but did not say whether it was linked to the hearing.
Anwar, whom the opposition regards as its future prime minister if it wins federal power, had earlier said he was bracing for a conviction, which could result in a maximum of 20 years in prison.
The verdict is expected to have a major impact on general elections that most politicians believe will be held some time this year. Anwar is the opposition's most charismatic politician and is considered the figure who can best hold the three ideologically distinct parties in his alliance together.
Information Minister Rais Yatim said in a statement that the acquittal "proves that the government does not hold sway over judges' decisions."
"Malaysia has an independent judiciary," Rais said. "The current wave of bold democratic reforms introduced by (Najib) will help extend this transparency to all areas of Malaysian life."
At least 5,000 opposition supporters gathered outside the court Monday, chanting "Long live the people." Some carried banners that read "Free Anwar" and "Reject slander."
A police helicopter flew over the court, while riot police backed by a truck mounted with a water cannon monitored the crowd amid concerns that a conviction might spark unrest in Malaysia's largest city.
Defense lawyers had insisted Saiful's testimony about the alleged sodomy at a Kuala Lumpur condominium in 2008 was riddled with inconsistencies and that the DNA evidence was mishandled by investigators.
Anwar, a former deputy prime minister and married father of six, was jailed in another sodomy case in 2000 when he was convicted of sodomizing his family's ex-driver. He denied the allegation, and Malaysia's top court released him in 2004 by overturning his conviction and nine-year sentence.
Judge Mohamad Zabidin said that without DNA evidence, Saiful's word was insufficient to convict Anwar.
"The court is always reluctant to convict on sexual offenses without corroborative evidence," he said in an unexpectedly brief two-minute judgment. "Therefore, the accused is acquitted and discharged."
Saiful did not attend the hearing, but wrote on Twitter after the verdict that he would "remain calm, continue praying and be patient."
The charge emerged several months after Anwar's alliance made major inroads in 2008 general elections, when the National Front ruling coalition endured its worst polling setback in more than five decades of governance.
The opposition now controls slightly more than one-third of Parliament's seats and hopes to win power by pledging to reduce problems such as graft, racial discrimination and curbs on civil liberties. Najib has increased efforts in recent months to tackle those grievances and regain the support of voters who deserted the National Front in the last elections.
