NIK AZIZ: ISA is wrong in Islam

KOTA BARU: Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat said yesterday he hoped that Parti Keadilan Rakyat adviser Da-tuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim would not be detained under the Internal Security Act.

"I hope he will not face it as the public has been condemning the use of the ISA. Even a minister was willing to step down to protest it. I hope that in the spirit of Ramadan, this will not happen."

The Pas spiritual leader said this after meeting Terengganu Pas commissioner Datuk Mus-tafa Ali yesterday.

Nik Aziz said the government should consider the wishes of the public, especially with the resignation of de facto law minister Datuk Zaid Ibra-him, who spoke out against recent ISA arrests.

"The ISA does not give the accused a chance to defend himself. This is wrong as in Islam, the accused is allowed to defend himself."
Meanwhile, the meeting yesterday was believed to be an effort to mend fences bet-ween the two over Mustafa's statement criticising Pakatan Rakyat for giving false hope to its supporters on the purported Sept 16 takeover of the government.

Nik Aziz, who was upset by the statement, had criticised Mustafa in the party's organ, Harakah.

How to Sell Used Computers

Autor: Lesley Lyon

Used computers are bought by either students who do not have good savings or earnings or they are bought by educational institutions like the schools and universities. Some parents buy used computers for their children just for browsing the Internet and to play games.

For this purpose, a used computer is more than sufficient than spending huge amounts on a new computer. These target segments however require used computers in a good working condition as well as for a lesser price.

Most of the used computers are sold in the online market, as it attracts all sorts of buyers. There are many numbers of online classifieds or auctions or online dealers who sell used computers. Selling used computers are a better option than throwing them as trash or keeping them in a corner occupying space and collecting dust.

The first and important step is to improve the appearance of the used computer by wiping it clean free of dust and dirt. Any buyer would get impressed by the way the computer looks, looks make the first impression. The selling price of a clean used computer is always better than the one, which is full of dirt and dust.

All the software manual, operating system and other supporting discs that came with the computer should be in tact. This will add more value, when selling the used computer and also will make the buyer consider the person who is selling the used computer as a trusted seller.

The most important thing to do before selling a used computer is to erase all the personal details or information from the hard disk or drive. Instead of just putting them in the trash folder it is very important to purge all the personal data from the computer’s memory, even invisible backup files can cause danger.

A tech savvy person’s help can be got if the seller does not know how to do it. If not done it may lead to accessing the bank accounts, or emails by any unknown person leading to identity theft. For that when there is a remedy.

Unused scanners, printers can also be bundled with the sale of the used computer. A buyer may sometime value it. The benefits or features of the computer can be highlighted for better sales.

In the wars, but they get the gang

September 05, 2008 Categories: News

Subang Jaya police crippled a house break-in gang with the arrest of three Sabahans after a high speed chase in Serdang on Thursday.

Police moved in on the suspects at about 4.30am after a week-long surveillance of the area.

Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said a police patrol car was badly damaged in the incident after it was hit by the suspect’s Proton Iswara, causing it to skid and ram into a road barrier. He said the suspects had just broken into an apartment in Vista Perdana in Bukit Serdang. They stole the victim’s Perodua Myvi and were driving away when stopped by police.

They, however, sped off causing police to give chase.

The Proton Iswara skidded after hitting the police car in the 15-minute chase. Police seized house and car break-in paraphernalia in the vehicle.

The driver of the Myvi, however, escaped. The car was later found abandoned along a road in Kajang.

Two of the suspects worked as security guards at an apartment block in Serdang while the third was unemployed. One of the suspects, a 23-year-old, was also said to have criminal record for dadah and house break-in cases.

Khalid said the gang which has been active since early this year was responsible for more than 10 cases reported in Subang Jaya district.
