Food inflation: Please store up more food

Folks– this is serious stuff. Due to the cold freeze and the stinkin weather all over the world, this has caused catastrophic food production. Bad weather in China and it affects the wheat/rice supply , you can feel the cost of food has gone up.
Here is the story:

In Epik’s 2011 Outlook, we said to expect inflation this year. Well, that did not take long. The headlines these days are full of news of inflation — specifically inflation in the things you need (food, fuel, clothing) and deflation in the things you don’t (a larger house or a new boat). To date, this inflation hit has mostly been observed in producer prices but not in consumer prices. That could well change soon, particularly once excess inventories are liquidated.

In the meantime:

* The supply of things you need is potentially shrinking: I don’t want to sound excessively Malthusian but for the first time in my life, I am sensing that there is a risk risk of widespread famine. The group most at risk is the nominally 1 billion people living on less than $2 a day. However, if the 2011 harvests are as bad as they look like they might be, the pain will quickly expand to those living on $10 a day and quite possibly higher. For calibration, something like 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day.

* The Inflation catapult is locked and loaded: Inflation is largely a monetary phenomenon. For inflation to occur, you either need (1) more money chasing the same amount of product, or (2) equal money chasing less product. In the case of food inflation, we may have the worst possible combination: more money chasing less product. The below chart explains perfectly why I think the inflation catapult is primed for blast-off. It awaits a triggering event.

* The Inflation hawks have left the building: Earlier today, there was news that Neil Barofsky is leaving his role as SIGTARP. These are the guys who are accountable for where the TARP bailout money goes. On a related note, Hawkish Fed Governor Kevin Warsh resigned last week. Axel Weber, the similarly hawkish heir apparent to the European Central Bank, also resigned last week. The hawks appear to be leaving the building.

You may not care about the money supply, and may well not know your M1, M2 and M3. Now would be a good time to get up to speed — before the velocity of money returns to trend. It is also a good time to diversify into assets that have finite supply and that have global appeal. Personally, I like premium domain names as an asset class for reasons discussed prior.

The Chinese need to eat too — and with $2.65 Trillion in ForEx reserves they can afford to!
The big macroeconomic development to watch in the coming months is Chinese food inflation. Month over month, the official number is that it is running a TRIPLE DIGIT annualized growth rate. I have an ongoing Skype dialog with a business partner in Fuzhou, China, who has confirmed that rapidly increasing food prices in late 2010 is now accelerating in 2011. Due to ongoing drought, China’s domestic harvest could take a large hit in 2011. However, keep in mind that China also has the world’s largest foreign exchange reserves, now above $2.65 Trillion. In other words, in a global market with free trade, their government should be able to import what they need from willing exporters. Interesting to note though that Russia has banned grained exports in the wake of their own failed harvest.

I goes to follow then that China is the X-Factor in global pricing of food — they would have the greatest need and also the greatest capacity to pay for it. Although drought conditions are not new in China, 2011 is looking particularly severe. This is the first time that I can recall when the world’s most populous nation can also afford to outbid the world’s wealthiest nations for a good that is classically price inelastic.

Guess who has the largest supply of exportable grain?
As you can see in the below info-graphic, far and away the US is the leading exporters of food.

At a time when food will be much more expensive, let’s see if the US crop holds up. It just might, and almost certainly on a relative basis. The (geopolitical) implications are significant as there is mounting evidence that instability in places like Egypt have their origin in rising food prices. Said another way, a government would spend as much as needed to maintain control of its population. With 43 million Americans on food stamps at a time of record budget deficits, the writing is on the wall that more debasement of the currency can be expected as the global trends towards income equality and wealth concentration continues. Hedge accordingly.
OF late, there is this massive pressure on Asian nations to stockpile rice as part of their national food security efforts.

With the weather pattern wreaking havoc on food crops leading to dwindling supplies and rising food inflation, there is looming fear the current price of rice may soon revisit the all-time record price in 2008, which at one time saw the grain price surging by 200%.

The global rice market has been on the rise again over the past few months after hitting a two-year low in early August 2010. The price of the Asian rice benchmark, Thai 100% grade-B white rice, has steadily risen by about 4.5% since Dec 29 to reach about US$558 per tonne.

Despite the assurance of ample rice supply by the world’s largest rice producers Thailand and Vietnam, Indonesia and Bangladesh have become among the earliest Asian nations to extensively boost their rice imports for 2011.

Early this month, Indonesia had ordered its state procurement agency Bulog to secure imports to gradually boost its rice stockpiles to two million tonnes from the current 1.5 million tonnes. Indonesia surprised the market recently by purchasing 820,000 tonnes of rice from Thailand for prompt shipment.

Bangladesh has also said it was buying 200,000 tonnes of parboiled rice from Thailand in the first government-to-government deal for the grain.

Malaysia has also been steadily stockpiling rice. After the bitter experience of 2008, Bernas the local rice custodian has been procuring rice over the past two years via active buying both on the spot and forward contract for two to six months to build up stocks.

According to some quarters, more Asian nations would likely make similar move to boost their rice stockpile should drought-striken China, the world’s largest rice consumer, start to procure more rice externally in the near term. China has been self-sufficient of the grain.

Interestingly, Vietnam, the second world largest rice producer, is also stockpiling its rice at about one million tonnes but Thailand intends to reduce its volume of it domestic stockpile to only 100,000 tonnes and export 900,000 tonnes from its stockpile.

Meanwhile, the Thai government is not overly worried about lowering its stockpile as new harvest will start soon. It is likely to export 10.73 million tonnes of the 2010-11 crop, up slightly from 10 million for 2009-10.

So what will be in store next as the scramble to stockpile rice hots up among Asian countries?

Given such a dire situation, it seems the proposal to create a permanent rice emergency reserve by the 10-member Asean together wth China, South Korea and Japan (Asean plus three) may likely be speeded up.

A meeting is slated in Jakarta later this year to discuss the supply and financing, and the mechanism to the countries should a hike in prices occur.

In addition, a blueprint will also be put up for the establishment of a 800,000-tonne strategic rice storage facility with pledges from Asean members, Japan, China and South Korea to protect the region’s two billion people from an environmental disaster and a runaway inflation.

Malaysia a RACIST COUNTRY!!! all Chinese go Home

Subject: Prof Khoo Kay Peng speaks out.. (Interesting Article)

All Older Malaysians are much to be accountable of what Malaysia is in today…
Tolerances had been abused, and patience had been taken for granted…
We are now what we had been—–By doing nothing Right then, that is how we had ended up to what is Today!!
If we choose to remain as what we had done, then we will expect nothing more than what we already had today!!

Prof Khoo Kay Peng speaks out .. (Interesting Article)

1Malay or 1Malaysia
Malay, Chinese and Indian are all Malaysian brothers and sisters. But BN has screwed Malaysians and Malaysia up.
Malay 1st…. Malaysian 2nd

When a Malay, Chinese and Indian, all Malaysians, apply for:-
1) Scholarships, Malays will get it first irrespective of bright Malaysians
2) Entry to the local universitie s and best courses such medicine, dentistry, law, Malays will get it first irrespective of quality. Residential hostels, Matriculation courses, MARA Uni , Malays will get 90% to 100%. (By the way, matriculation exams are internally set by own lecturers – about thousands of straight A’s students in Matriculation compared to the straight A’s STPM which are few. This is “Malay meritocracy vs Malaysian meritocracy”!
3) Social Welfare, Malays will get it first irrespective of how poor the Malaysian rakyat is

4) Business Contracts, Malays will get it first irrespective of who can offer the best value, quality and unblemished track record. Even when blacklisted, Malay associations have the right to complain because the rakyat owes them a living.

5) Sharing of wealth and equity, IPOs, ASB, Malays will get it first. Even with ASB for Malays give higher returns and principal guaranteed capped at RM200K instead of other bonds for Malaysians with lower yield capped at RM50K. This will be ongoing. WhyMalays cannot reach 30% equities? Statistics are manipulated so that valuation of shares are based on par value (Imagine valuing CIMB, Maybank, Sime darby etc at par value of RM1.00 instead of market value of RM12 etc. Malaysians must accept these assumptions or make sure this is hidden or else priviledges are gone..!! )

6) Low cost houses, lands, houses even bungalows , Malays will get it first because they are the supreme race and the rest of Malaysians are immigrants. Quotas for Malays are 30% to 50% with steep discounts to be subsidized by the rest of the Malaysians.

7) Important Senior management jobs, CEO positions in government linked companies, Malays will get it first irrespective of the best qualified and most capable Malaysian candidates.

8) Government linked positions, civil positions , nurses and teachers training, Malay will get first irrespective whether they are qualified

9 ) Religious land for worship or terms of God , Malays own it and the rest must obey.

10) Demonstrations, freedom of expressions, racial blurs, Malays can have their say, others under ISA …
Now you know why it is Malay 1st, Malaysian 2nd Education, welfare, economic, business policies are to benefit Malay first then Malaysian 2nd. The rest of the rakyat, who works hard, contribute to nation building will continue to be Malaysians 2nd..
So it is not so difficult to understand if a Malay Indonesian Badminton player is paying against a Chinese or Indian Malaysian, those who subscribe Malay 1st, Malaysians 2nd will cheer for the Malay badminton player.

When there is a citizenship application of a Malay Indonesian and a qualified non Malay, the Malay Indonesian will get it irrespective of merits.

That is why we have Malay is 1st class other Malaysians 2nd class. This is the only country that has racism and special rights enshrined in the constitutions because Malay is supreme.
So if you have the opportunity to migrate to be treated fairly and justly,why stay? Malaysians 2nd means you will always be an immigrant. Why become an immigrant with 2nd class rights when other countries are willing to give you the same rights.
1Malaysia to appease Malaysians 2nd class hope until the elections…

Wise UP Malaysians! Vote wisely.


Khoo Kay Peng speaks out.. Can Najib Walk his Talk?
So far, the judgment is NO. Again the saying pertaining to this, Your actions is so loud (not walking your talk) that I cannot hear what you are saying (all your speeches are for nothing)
NEM, NEP, Perkasa & Malay First, Malaysian Second: Time is Running Out for PM Najib

PM Najib is forced to go back to the Barisan old script when he was asked to react on his deputy’s statement that he was “Malay 1st, Malaysian 2nd”. Najib defended his deputy, “Being a Malay doesn’t mean that you are against 1Malaysia or you don’t think like a Malaysian.” “Similarly, if you are a Malaysian Chinese, it doesn’t mean that you don’t think like a Malaysian or subscribe to the concept of 1Malaysia,” he said.
Najib’s knee-jerk reaction on Muhyiddin’s statement unmasks his own understanding about nation building and the 1Malaysia concept .
The lack of national affinity and shared destiny is the main obstacle for 1Malaysia. It is sad to note that the 1Malaysia founder himself does not share the vision of nationhood and citizenship. If Najib does not trust his own nation building agenda, he should not have misused the name, Malaysia .

1Malaysia is not consistent with Ethnicity 1st, Nationality 2nd.
We cannot blame Muhyiddin for his lack of national identity because nation building was not featured in the Barisan rule over the last 5 decades. Barisan is an antithesis to 1Malaysia and nation building. The most important element in a nation building project is to outlaw racial discrimination. Barisan is the epitome of racism and racially based politics.

Najib cannot remain coy and silent on the demands, attacks and allegations made against the Chinese community, in particularly, by Perkasa.
Interestingly, a politician such as Ibrahim Ali needed racism to resurrect his career. Of course he is enjoying the media limelight at the moment. At the Aljazeera interview, he lambasted “If these people say that they are second-class citizens, don’t talk s**t! Don’t talk s**t! I repeat three times, don’t talk s**t!”

“We, the Malays have forgiven them a lot, we have sacrificed a lot of our interests,” he added.
I would like Ibrahim to clarify what interests? It appears that Muhyiddin is now clamouring to ride on Perkasa’s wave by declaring that he is “Malay 1st” and “Malaysian 2nd”.
Regardless of the publicity stunt and damage control, Najib knows that his defence of Muhyiddin and his statement is going to tear his concept to pieces. His administration is dragging its feet on the NEM details and mechanism. It makes us wonder if there is any meat at all in NEM.

Time is running out for him. Another talk but no walk is going to put him on the same pedestal as Abdullah Badawi.
Najib should state his stand on Perkasa and Ibrahim Ali’s disrespect for non-Malay citizens. They (Najib, Muhyiddin and Ibrahim) should remember that their salaries and perks are paid by Malaysians of all races. Not by the Malays onl y.

Malaysia gets poor marks for human rights

Malaysia gets poor marks for human rights–how many bloggers have gone to jail ??-the surviving one is!!!***

KUALA LUMPUR: To ensure it stays in control and in power, the Malaysian Government has turned its back on promises to protect people’s rights, said Human Rights Watch.

In its report released Thursday, it said that when Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak took over as prime minister in April 2009, he promised to respect the fundamental rights of the people but his government has failed to undertake the systematic reforms needed to fulfil that pledge.

It said the Government harassed the Opposition, improperly restricted the right to peaceful expression, association, and assembly, and mistreated migrants.

When it comes to human rights, Malaysia is more about rhetoric than reality, it said.

“The Malaysian Government appears to be more interested in pursuing short-term political advantage rather than safeguarding rights,” said Human Rights Watch deputy Asia director Phil Robertson.

The 612-page World Report 2010 reviewed human rights practices around the world over the last year.

It said the release of a number of Internal Security Act (ISA) detainees early in Najib’s term was a positive development, but stressed that Parliament should repeal the ISA and other repressive laws including the Police Act 1967, which it said, was used to justify a “violent crackdown” on a citizens’ march against the ISA.

The report also said that following the impact of the Internet on the last general election, the Government has tried to rein in non-traditional media, putting them and bloggers under closer scrutiny.

It also voiced concern over continued government control of the traditional media and called for the Printing Presses and Publications Act to be rescinded.

The report also criticised the Government for failing to distinguish refugees and asylum seekers from undocumented migrants and for its use of an “ill trained, abusive civilian force” (Rela) to crack down on undocumented migrants.

It said detainees were kept under inhumane conditions causing several of them to die last year while dozens were infected with leptospirosis, a disease spread by animal faeces in unclean water.

“How many more migrants have to die in detention before Malaysian policymakers wake up?” said Robert­son.

The report also criticised Malaysia for continuing to crimininalise adult consensual sexual behaviour including sodomy and said it is about time the government brought its criminal code into the 21st century.

An Augustine Event – a Malaysian puppet show

An Augustine Event

By Dream Weaver

It was to be a gala occasion, a grand event attended by dignitaries and luminaries of the legal fraternity. Federal Court judge Augustine Paul was to be feted and awarded the prestigious “Mahathir Award for Judicial Excellence”. In addition to this distinction, he will be the first recipient of the newly created “Most Obedient Performing Judge” award for outstanding service to the government. And as if this is not enough, the Royal Malaysian Police will be presenting him with an impressive sounding “Medal Gullibo et Stupido” for the unusual tolerance he has shown towards the police force. Not to be outdone, the Attorney-General Office hastily cobbled together an award it called “Justice Prejudis La Extraordinaire” in recognition of Paul’s unwavering loyalty to the cause of the prosecution.

The guest of honour was none other than Dr. Mahathir himself who will be giving away the distinguished awards. Expecting a huge crowd, the largest hall in the famous Putra World Trade Centre with a seating capacity of four thousand was pressed into service. Practically everybody of any note in the judiciary and law enforcement fraternity including lawyers, prosecutors, judges, lawmakers and police officers were invited as were the entire Cabinet. Balloons and tinsel decked the hall giving it a festive atmosphere. Television crew and journalists stood by to record this august event.

As the time drew closer to the official opening, something was not quite right. The huge hall was not filling up as expected. In the seats reserved for the A-G and distinguished judges, there was the Attorney-General Gani Patail looking regal in the front row but disappointingly only the judges from the Perak power grab cases such as judge Ahmad Maarop, Md. Raus Sharif, Zainun Ali, James Foong, Nik Hashim and the one-man appeal panel judge Ramly Ali had shown up. Retired Chief Justice Tun Eusoff Chin was among them, but where was the new Chief Justice Zaki Azmi? He could be so disrespectful to stay away could he? Ariffin Jaka who presided over Anwar’s sodomy trial was sitting by himself, his eyes downcast and sullen looking as if the honour should have been his. He had only shown up because he was promised a consolation prize.

The police force was represented by IGP Musa Hassan and famous black eye ex-IGP Rahim Noor and they seem lonely sitting among the empty seats. As for government ministers, only Law Minister Nazri Aziz, the ever-obedient Koh Tsu Koon, the yes-man Ong Tee Keat and the rabidly loyal Rais Yatim were holding the fort. The space reserved for lawyers had one lone attendant, a bewildered looking Muhammad Shafie who had gained famed by his lawsuits against the Raja Petra sitting uncomfortably by himself. A few wives were with their husbands but on the whole the VIP gallery looked sparse and forlorn.

The public seats were looking better. A team of students from the Augustine Paul School of Puppet Judges filled a sizeable pocket. The Samy Vellu School of Ball Carriers sent a delegation of ten students but their headmaster was away on a foreign trip. Special guest Shaiful Bukhari whose lavish clothes and heavy gold jewellery could not hide his new wealth was spotted listening intently to his effeminate looking Uncle Pet. Among them a few unidentified people sat impassively.

Mahathir was due anytime soon and the organisers were getting frantic. They picked up the phone and screamed at whoever was unfortunate enough to be at the other end of the line. “Where’s Umno Youth? Where’s MCA Youth? Where’s Wanita Umno? What about Puteri Umno? Get Zaki Azmi here pronto! Didn’t you pay for school teachers and factory workers to come? Get ANYBODY here, please! Even Lim Kit Siang!!…aaiiyohhh…” And the torrent of frenzied yelling and pleading rose audibly above the muted whispers in the carnivorous hall.

But it was too late. The great doors opened and in swept the Mahathir’s entourage, bringing with it the din and commotion of noisy crowd outside. Was this the crowd which would fill up the hall and save the day? But they were yelling “Reformasi!” and “Ketuanan Rakyat!” The doors were hastily closed and bolted.

When the dignitaries were seated the master of ceremony welcomed all those present and apologized for the poor turnout. He postulated that many guests were afraid to attend this event due to fear of the opposition demonstrators who may be armed with mortars, molokov cocktails and rocket launchers. At this a titter went through the audience who no doubt found this amusing. However the speaker put on a brave face and began to recite the accomplishments of Augustine Paul. They were long and numerous from Anwar’s corruption trial to ISA detainees to the Perak lawsuits and the latest Kg. Buah Pala case which he had ruled for the government. Then he called for the guest of honour to give his speech.

Dr. Mahathir looking grim faced and tired stared down the vast hall past the sparse pockets of people to the endless tiers of empty seats beyond. He began his speech by blaming the opposition parties for the poor turnout. “The opposition must be threatening and bribing people not to attend this event”, he thundered. Then he went on to praise Augustine Paul for being a good judge with who should be emulated. “Here is an exemplary judge…he dispenses justice with the interests of the government in mind…if at all he has any fault, it is that sometimes his judgements are not too logical…but this is due to his extraordinary desire to please…someday all judges will be made this way”. As he droned on, the audience clapped politely at key points with Koh Tsu Koon standing at times to show his enthusiasm.

Then it was time for Augustine Paul to give his speech. The loudspeakers blared the tune from Waltzing Mathilda as he made his way to the rostrum. When the music faded he thanked Mahathir profusely for his high praise for “this unworthy pimp”. He said, “The judiciary must have complete and total trust in the wisdom of the Executive. Anybody charged with anti-government activities MUST be convicted. The Executive has the unquestionable right to detain people without trial. It is sacrilegious to question this right…Suhakam should shut-up…Tun Mahathir is God’s gift to the nation” On and on he his fawning speech went as an embarrassed silence filled the hall. He concluded by declaring emphatically, “Ask not what you can do for the public, ask what you can do for the government!” As he made his way back to his seat strains of Waltzing Mathilda floated through the hall again.

The monotony of speeches was broken by some light entertainment in the form of a puppet show. This featured a puppet wearing a judicial wig and judicial robes dancing and jerking to his master’s tune. Then students from the Augustine Paul School of Puppet Judges presented a skit depicting highlights from the Anwar corruption trial to show the finer points of Judge Paul’s handling of this troublesome case. Cries of “Irrelevant! Irelevant! Irrelevant! ” punctuated the air. The point was driven home again and again of how judge Paul bravely and single-handedly fought tooth and nail against the avalanche of truth and facts to bring the trial to the desired conclusion. The entertainment ended with a solo recital in which part of the judgment of Paul during the Anwar trial was recited like a Shakespearean play.

Then it was time to present the awards. Amid polite clapping and light cheering, each award was unveiled and presented to a beaming Paul. The PM’s Award for Judicial Excellence featured two bronze kangaroos supporting a gold painted crown on which the words MAHATHIR were boldly emblazoned. The award for ‘Most Obedient Performing Judge’ came with a bronze figure in judicial robes holding a gavel which could cleverly bow its head and bend its knees controlled by silver strings. When a hidden button was pressed, it could even intone the words “Irrelevant” sternly and the gavel would pound on a head which popped up. The police’s ‘Medal Gullibo et Stupido’ was a large silver medal on which was inscribed the head of Goofy, the Disney stupid dog with tongue hanging out. On its reverse side the words “In Police We Trust, No Questions Asked” were engraved. The Justice Prejudis La Extraordinaire was an object of clever symbolism with Lady Justice holding a unbalanced scale in her left hand and the forefinger of her right hand held to her lips in a ssshhhh gesture. Instead of a blindfold, she wears an eyepatch over one eye to denote how justice can be selectively blind or seeing. A sash with the words “IRRELEVANT” completed her attire.

So Augustine Paul was the picture of rapture as he came up to receive award after award from Mahathir with the flash of photographers and television cameras recording his most dazzling moment. So overcome was he with emotion that he did an impromptu jig with lots of bowing, scraping, groveling and knee-bending as Mahathir watched in amusement and television cameras recorded his ridiculous gyrations for posterity. People were to comment later that it was a fair representation of how the Judiciary has become a servile clown of the Executive.

Then it was time for Ariffin Jaka to receive his consolation prize. Mahathir had a few choice words for him, calling him “a twit who should have protected the Executive from embarrassment and exposure even though he gave the right judgement in the end”. His award was a sculpture of three monkeys, one with its hands covering its eyes, another with its hands over its mouth and the third with its hands pressed against its ears. Made of cheap plastic and painted silver, it was a fitting reminder to the judge on the relationship between the judiciary and the Executive.

There was also a surprise award for judge Ramly Ali who had bravely and single-handedly stayed the High Court’s decision to reinstate Datuk Nizar as MB of Perak at lightning speed. His award was a Certificate of Gratitude from the office of the Attorney-General with a RM100 bill stapled to a corner.

When the event ended journalist crowed around Augustine Paul to interview him. Among the exchange were:

“Sir, do you believe in the justice you dispense?”

“Look at me mister, do I believe in breathing air?”

“Judge, how do your peers and your friends view you now?”

“They can go to hell. I now have many new and powerful friends in high places”.

“As a Catholic, what about your relationship with God and your position in the afterlife?”

“Ha! I will cheat the Devil. I will convert to Islam and repent just before I die”.

“How can you sleep at night?”

“People count sheep, I count money”

Then the doors were opened and Augustine Paul was escorted out into the bright sunshine. As he appeared into public view, the cries of “Reformasi” turned to shouts of “Pariah judge! Pariah judge!” A variety of impromptu missiles were thrown his way including shoes, slippers, drink cans and even rotten eggs. He was hastily bundled into his car and driven away before things got uglier.

Polis Diraja Malaysia / Royal Malaysian Police – Laws Are Broken in Front of Police Stations

My dear Polis Diraja Malaysia or better known as Royal Malaysian Police. What the fuck are you guys doing? Are you guys sleeping? It’s rather embarrassing to see people breaking the law in front of your police station. Oh, by the way, the website for the Royal Malaysian Police is .

Do you know what’s their fucking vision?

The main enforcement agency that is with integrity, competence and committed to work with the people

Their fucking objective on the other hand is : –
Committed to serve and defend the country and to work with the people in order to uphold law and order.

So, if these fucking police cannot even uphold the law in front of their police station, I wonder how are they going to uphold the law for the country? I guess they are only good for the use of Barisan Nasional people. To catch Raja Petra. To catch people lighting candles. WTF ??!!!

Fatwa on yoga out soon

PUTRAJAYA: Muslims who practise yoga will know within this week the National Fatwa Council’s edict on the exercise.

Council chairman Datuk Dr Abdul Shukor Husin said he had written and handed over a draft of the edict to the council last week.

“I have been on several overseas trips but I understand that the Islamic Development Department (Jakim) is in the process of arranging for a meeting of the council and media conference on the matter.

“The council will return the draft for me to check for approval. Practitioners will know within this week the council’s decision,” he told reporters after attending the International Seminar on Comparative Law at the Marriott Hotel here yesterday.

Dr Abdul Shukor said the draft needed to be checked a few times because a “fatwa was equivalent to a court decision”.

He declined to say whether the edict would ban the practice, adding that the fatwa would explain everything.
