BEKAS AHLI MT UMNO HUTANG KASINO RM7.1 JUTA

Mahkamah Tinggi Kota Kinabalu semalam menolak permohonan oleh sebuah kasino The Ritz Hotel Casino untuk menuntut RM7.1 juta dalam bentuk hutang perjudian dari bekas Ketua Menteri Sabah Osu Sukam.

Ritz Hotel telah memperolehi perintah dari Mahkamah Tinggi England untuk mengarahkan Osu agar membayar hutang tersebut yang diperolehinya dalam bentuk kredit bagi tujuan untuk berjudi di kasino tersebut. Ritz Hotel melalui wakilnya membuat permohonan di mahkamah tinggi bagi menguatkuasakan perintah mahkamah England itu malangnya ia ditolak oleh Hakim Ian Chin.



Kita tidak mempertikaikan keputusan penghakiman hakim tersebut.

Isunya di sini mahkamah tinggi tidak sekali-kali menafikan yang RM7,142,859.98 telah diberikan kepada Osu dalam bentuk kredit untuk tujuan berjudi. Bermakna Osu telah menerima kredit tersebut, berjudi dan akhirnya hangus sebanyak jumlah tuntutan itu atas meja judi!

RM7 juta ini kalau digunakan untuk membeli rumah kos rendah di Selangor, pembeli dapat membeli rumah untuk 200 orang keluarga! Osu, bekas ahli majlis tertinggi Umno (2000-2003) dan bekas Ketua Menteri Sabah (1999- 2001) dapat menghanguskannya sekelip mata atas meja judi.

Osu mungkin diselamatkan oleh keputusan mahkamah tinggi Kota Kinabalu ini, namun mahkamah Allah di Padang Mahsyar sudah pasti menunggu beliau. Judi ini samada di England ataupun Malaysia adalah haram disisi Islam.

FORMER UMNO SUPREME COUNCIL MEMBER
IN DEBT WITH CASINO FOR RM7.1 MILLION

The Kota Kinabalu High Court yesterday dismissed an application by The Ritz Hotel Casino to recover RM7.1 million in gambling debts from former Sabah Chief Minister Osu Sukam.

Ritz Hotel had earlier obtained a judgment in the English High Courts ordering Osu to repay the debts obtained in the form of credit for gambling activities in the casino. Ritz Hotel through its representative had applied in the high court to enforce the English judgement which was however dismissed by Justice Ian Chin.

We do not dispute the judges decision.

The issue here is the fact that the high court had never at any one time denied that RM7,142,859.98 credit was given to Osu for gambling purposes. Therefore it shows that Osu had indeed obtained the credit, gambled it and lost the whole lot all on the gambling table!

RM7 million could accommodate 200 families in low cost houses in Selangor! Osu, the former Umno supreme council member (2000 2003) and former Sabah Chief Minister (1999 2001) burnt it overnight through gambling.

Osu might have been rescued by this high court decision in Kota Kinabalu, however Allahs court in the hereafter awaits him. Gambling is strictly prohibited in Islam irrespective whether one is in England or Malaysia.

There is a resounding desire for meaningfull freeroll tournaments in which online casinos players at all levels have the opportunity to compete in tournament play when the prize money is huge... but the buyin is somewhat prohibitive for most.
