Liew Wei Liang, 20, a cook from Masai

Liew, a cook who resides in Masai here, was on his way to the city centre via Permas at around 9.30pm when a woman driver who was in a Toyota Vios lost control of her car and swerved into the opposite lane. He couldn't stop in time and crashed into her car.

Johor Baru South OCPD Asst Comm Sulaiman Salleh said that Liew had died on the spot.

He said that the woman was sent to the Regency Specialist Hospital as she suffered from an injured back due to the impact, while Liew's body was sent to Hospital Sultan Ismail.

He added that the woman was detained by police at the hospital for investigations into the case.

On another matter, ACP Sulaiman said that the police are looking for a group in connection with the death of an 18-year-old welder in Taman Sentosa here.

"We believe that the victim was hit by a blunt object and tried to flee before falling into a drain along Jalan Songket.

"The victim's body has been sent to the Hospital Sultanah Aminah for a post-mortem and we are still looking for the suspects connected to the case," he said adding that the victim's body was discovered by the public at around 6am on March 30.

Those with information pertaining to the incident are urged to contact the Johor Police Hotline at 07-2212999 or visit the nearest police station.

GM: There is sufficient supply at main dams

Posted: 31 Mar 2014 09:00 AM PDT

GEORGE TOWN: The water capacity at the three main dams in the state is still sufficient and can last for at least another two months.

Penang Water Supply Corporation (PBAPP) general manager Jaseni Maidinsa said that as of yesterday, the Air Itam Dam was at 64.6% capacity, which was sufficient for 63 days, while the Teluk Bahang Dam was at 77% capacity and would be enough for 234 days.

PBAPP has also been diverting water from the Teluk Bahang Dam to the Air Itam water distribution network, while the Mengkuang Dam on the mainland is at 38.5% capacity which is sufficient for 64 days.

"However, we are looking at sustaining the water capacity of the dams for a longer term.

"It is better to wait for the Chief Minister to issue a statement after the state executive council meeting," he said.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng is also PBAPP chairman.

In ALOR SETAR, the Kedah Government has put aside its plan to impose water rationing as the rainy season has started.

State Local Government, Water Supply, Water Resources, Energy, Housing and Human Capital Committee chairman Badrol Hisham Hashim said the heavy rain on Saturday was a good sign that the prolonged dry spell in the state was ending.

"The rain that night has increased the water level at our dams. We have an average of about 70% water in all our dams now, which is sufficient for domestic and agricultural usage for the next three months," he said yesterday.

Last week, water at the dams was at about 68%.

On March 14, Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir said the state government would seriously consider water rationing if there was no rain by the end of the month.

As for Perlis, the water level at the Timah Tasoh Dam is at 27.21m and has not reached the critical level, according to the Drainage and Irrigation Department website.

The normal level at the dam is 29.1m while the critical level is 25.3m. The maximum level at the dam is 30.1m.

Hisham refutes British tabloid report on Capt Zaharie

Posted: 31 Mar 2014 09:00 AM PDT

KUALA LUMPUR: Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein has refuted a report by British tabloid the Daily Mail regarding Capt Zaharie Ahmad Shah's state of mind before flying the MH370.

Saying that the report was wrong, Hishammuddin said any information quoted in the report was not released by Malaysian police.

"I can confirm that it did not come from the police," he said at a press conference on MH370 yesterday.

In a report on Sunday, the tabloid quoted a "source close to the pilot's family" saying Capt Zaharie was in emotional turmoil over the break-up of his marriage. The daughter of Capt Zaharie has since said she would not forgive British tabloid the Daily Mail for "making up stories".

On requests for the transcript of the final communication from the cockpit of Flight MH370 he said: "You must be fair to us because only those doing the investigation can give us the ok. If there comes a time if this can be shared with the public, with their consent, I will."

He said the investigation team was not hiding anything and urged everyone to just let "the inquiries show what they show".

A DCA source described the communications between the aircraft and those on the ground as normal aviation talk.
