人联党只会以金钱来衡量行动党对华校的贡献

Posted: 22 Nov 2014 09:18 PM PST

(古晋22日讯) 民主行动党砂州主席兼古晋区国会议员张健仁今日表示人联党只会以金钱来衡量行动党对华校的贡献,并调侃人联党已经沦落为金钱挂帅的政党。

也是哥打圣淘沙区州议员的张健仁是针对今日人联党甲必丹黄锦就在报章上指行动党的代议士,浮罗岸区州议员黄庆伟和实旦宾区国会议员陈国彬冷待华校的文章而作出回应。
张氏说,议员对华教的贡献,是政策上的争取,倘若要以金钱来衡量,人民倒不如让亿万富翁来当议员。看谁出的钱多谁就来当议员。

"人联党就是长期来,都是以金钱财富来衡量贡献,所以才会沦落到今天变成一个财团控制的政党,没有钱就什么都不行了。"

张健仁表示,民主行动党一路以来对于捍卫华校的立场相当明显,并且还不时的在议会提出华教的课题。

"在议会里,行动党有10位州议员,难道同一个课题,需要全部的州议员提出才算有争取? 议会里有时一位议员发表的时间只有20分钟,如此多人民的问题,有些课题其他议员提过了,别的就不需再提,除非有一些不同的建议或看法。"

张氏说,行动党的议员是一个团队,是依循党政策和方针进行政治斗争和争取人民权益。该党捍卫华教的政治路线,全民有目共睹,经得起时间的考验,而该党的每一位国、州议员和领袖,都是依循着这方向而斗争。

张氏也说,在今年5月召开的州议会,他以行动党砂州主席的身份,代表行动党授招于新首席部长阿德南,若阿德南要赢取华社的支持,其中一个方式就是"常年拨款华教"。 他的发表,也记录在砂州议会201457日第36页第2段的会议记录中。 黄锦就若不相信,他可去查询。

张氏也表示,人联党最强盛的时期,即1987年至2005年,独中没有拨款,而今时今日人联党最弱的时期,独中却获得拨款。

"人联党的领袖当议员是叫人民出钱支持华教。而行动党的领袖当议员却是叫政府出钱支持华教。 当行动党的议员人数可以形成一股足够的压力时,独中就有拨款了。"
张氏也奉劝黄锦就,不要因为本身是执政党所委任的甲必丹,就以一些没有根据的言论来污蔑行动党。

张氏说,首席部长阿德南今次的给予独中300万令吉的拨款已证明了今时的政治,不再是人联党常常说的"朝中有人好办事",而事实却是"人在朝里难说话",因此,人联党长期在国阵的体系下,不能说、不敢说也不会说,而华社的权力也因此被典当掉。

Sarawak DAP opposes amendment to Land Code

Posted: 11 Nov 2014 04:27 PM PST

Sarawak DAP strongly opposes the Land Code (Amendment) Bill 2014 which allows native landowners to sell their land to other natives of different races regardless of location as they can be easily exploited by the rich and super rich natives.

"If we allow this bill to be passed without safeguards, there will be a time whereby the rich owning hundreds and thousands of NCR land, while the poor natives will have no land to farm," Kota Sentosa assemblyperson Chong Chieng Jen warned yesterday.

This had happened in China about 60 years ago where the poor farmers had to work in the land owned by the land lords, he said during the debate on the Land Code (Amendment) Bill
2014.

The Bill was introduced by Deputy Chief Minister and Rural Development Minister and Modernization of Agriculture Minister Alfred Jabu anak Numpang (right) to seek an amendment to section 5(2) of Land Code to allow the untitled  NCR land to be 'inherited, acquired, 
purchased by or transferred, or sold or disposed off to or dealt with another native'.

Don't support for the sake of supporting

Chong said: "We cannot support this Bill unless the government comes up with an amendment to this Bill such as to provide safeguards to protect the interest of the less informed and the less educated native landowners.

"There must be a provision and a safeguard to ensure that only natives in the area can buy the land within the area. Other rich natives for example from Layar and Baleh should not be allowed to buy the land and leave their investment there," he said.

"Secondly, we are talking about the enhancing the sale value of the land with conditions attached such as that the buyers must develop the land within five years.

"If any potential buyer has a plan to develop the land and buys the land from the native landowners, he must develop the land within five years.

"We cannot allow the rich natives to continue to buy and buy and buy the land and keep it there for years. By not developing the land, that in itself is non-productive economically.

"If he fails to develop the land, then he breaches the condition and the land should be reverted to the land owners," he said.

Chong also suggested that a different treatment should be given to a category of land like the urban, sub-urban and country land.

"What we object strongly is that  the rich and super rich natives or a big company with native status come and buy hundreds and thousands of acres of country land as they know that the land will not be developed within 10 years or so.

"When they know that the government has plans to develop the area, they will buy and continue to buy the land from the natives at very cheap prices. But when a road is built through the land, it will appreciate in value by 20 or 30 times," he said.

"They will get a windfall, but the original landowners will get 'nadai apa-apa' (nothing)," he said.

He also suggested that there must be a native land board to monitor the sale of land  to  prevent hundreds and thousands of natives becoming landless in the state.

"If this happens, it will not good for the natives and it will not good for the state, and it will not good for everybody," he said.

"So what I am saying here is that the bill at this at this stage is a tool of exploitation of the poor and the less informed and less educated natives," he said.

Saying that it is the duty of the government to protect them, he said that the bill has so many loopholes for implementation.

"For that we oppose the bill," said Chong who is the Sarawak DAP chief.

'Have a heart for the poor landowners'

Debating  the same Bill, the DAP member for Meradong Ting Tze Fui  said that  there is an underlying worry that once this proposed Amendment Bill is passed and becomes law, the NCR lands will be easily acquired by the rich natives or the proxy, nominees or political allies who are well-connected to the prominent politicians.

"We as lawmakers shall be extra cautious and giving more thought in respect of the possible impacts and consequences of passing such a law which could be a double-edge sword as it can be positive or negative, especially when the newly amended Section 5(2) has the retrospective effect which may cause even more NCR land disputes," she said.    

The DAP member asked the minister for rural development who is a Dayak himself to think  thrice before supporting this amendment bill just for the sake of supporting it.

"Do study carefully and have some heart for your own communities. Land is life for the natives, the Sarawak state government should have instituted pro-people policies so that these indigenous people can live and work in peace and contentment in their own lands," said Ting.

Meanwhile, DAP Member for Dudong Yap Hoi Liong asked the government to lay down clear laws and regulations as to the sale of native titled land, sale of the native customary land (NCL) is sale of 'temuda' or sale of 'pemakai menua' so as to avoid exploitation of the rich over the poor natives.

Yap quoted Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Richard Malanjun said that if holders of NCL were or are allowed to dispose them off by way off by way of sale then the very purpose in the creation and existence of NCL would be defeated. The adat and custom of 'tungkus asi' would be greatly undermined.

首长署复函答非所问

Posted: 04 Nov 2014 05:00 PM PST

(古晋4日讯)民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁炮轰砂州国阵政府,隐瞒砂州国阵州议员从政府的法定机构、政府机构及官联公司,领了多少薪酬。

张健仁透露,在今年5月的州议会,他提呈了以下的一个问题,即:
" 询问首席部长,请列出目前所有的砂州州议员在法定机构、政府机构及官联公司所被委的职位及他们各别自2009年所得到的薪酬。"

张氏指出,虽然他的问题是在5月开会前14天就提呈给州议会,但是,首长署却等到5个月后于今年1028日才给予一个答非所问的答案。

首长署给予的答案如下
" 州政府委任州议员出任法定机构、政府机构和官联公司职位的考量,是基于这些州议员的适合性、能力和经验,是否是这些机构所需要的。"

(Question :   To ask the Honourable Chief Minister to state all the respective positions in statutory bodies, government agencies and government-linked companies that are currently held by Honourable members of the Sarawak State Assembly and what are the respective remuneration paid to them since year 2009.

Answer :       Appointment of the Honourable Members of Sarawak State Assembly to the respective positions in statutory bodies, government agencies and government-linked companies are based on suitability, capability and experience of the candidate required by the agency concerned.)


张健仁表示,连一位读3年级的小孩子都可以看得出,这答案根本就是答非所问。

"我问首长,这些州议员从法定机构、政府机构和官联公司,拿了多少薪酬,首长却回答说,以什么准则委任这些州议员。如果考试有这样的答案,肯定是不及格的。"

张健仁质疑,难道首长署的官员或首长的智商如此低,连回答一个简单的问题也无法做到。

他说,首长署的官员或首长不可能这么差的,唯一的结论就是,他们要隐瞒事实,不愿告诉砂州人民,这些国阵的州议员,除了州议员的薪金之外,还有多少的收入来自这些法定机构、政府机构及官联公司。

"这些法定机构、政府机构及官联公司的钱也是砂州人民的钱。我们有权力知道,到底政府每个月总数还多少钱养这些国阵的州议员。"

张氏说,众所周知,多数的国阵州议员,都有被委任为这些政府法定机构、政府机构及官联公司,如古晋海港局、美里海港局、砂经济发展局和其他官联公司如砂电力公司的董事。

"砂州政府有几十个如此的法定机构、政府机构及官联公司,而国阵的州议员也有许多是这些法定机构、政府机构及官联公司的董事。他们领取的董事薪酬也是人民的钱,因此,砂州人民有权力知道,国阵的州议员到底领取了多少薪酬。

张健仁表示,自从阿德南上任砂州首长之后,他的言论展示他有意愿要落实透明和清廉施政,但是,他在议会给予的这样的答案,却和他的言论南辕北辙,完全相反。

张健仁也指出,首席部长以如此的答案,回答州议员在州议会的提问,根本就是在侮辱神圣的州议会,仿佛砂州州议会就只是这样的水准。


"因此,不论阿德南是否知道其部门对州议员的提问给予如此低级的答案,我呼吁阿德南言行一致,对于我的提问给予一个真正的答案,不要延续泰益所以留下来,不透明的行政文化。"

ISTIWAJAR花园住宅区 围墙龟裂土地下陷

Posted: 25 Oct 2014 08:00 PM PDT

(本报民都鲁25日讯)砂行动党主席兼古晋区国会议员张建仁表示,目前,该党将会针对民都鲁丹绒巴都路ISTIWAJAR花园住宅区所发生的围墙龟裂,土地下陷问题,在即将到来的砂州立法议会会议中,由基都隆区州议员周政新代表提呈,希望负责部长以及负责部门能够尽快的让该住宅区居民获得维修相关问题。
砂行动党主席兼古晋区国会议员张建仁(中)指出,该党将会委托都东区州议员叶海量律师来负责民都鲁ISTIWAJAR住宅区居民所面对的房屋墙壁龟裂,地陷等问题的法律援助。左为都东区州议员叶海量律师,右为基都隆区州议员周政新。
张建仁指出,一个发展商或承包商,甚至地方政府应该要对社会上的发展计划,以人民为先的服务为广大市民绩效服务,而不是为了发展计划而忽略附近地区人民的安稳。
"如果承包商或发展商在工程进行之后,导致附近住宅区的住家发生龟裂或泥土下陷,就应该积极主动作出了解,以及负责赔偿,而不是采取不加理会的行为。"
张建仁指出,我们每个人,如果在看到家园遭破坏的时候,心情肯定是会很糟糕,而且这或许是一些人储蓄了一生的积蓄来购买房子,但是却发生类似龟裂或是泥土下陷的问题,肯定会心情不好,甚至会影响到本身还必须先动用一笔费用来进行维修。
"就好比说一个人买了房子,但是因为附近进行工程进展,导致房子范围的墙壁龟裂,泥土下陷,地砖也因为地基遭破坏而导致地砖出现裂痕,甚至造成倾斜等状况,肯定心情是特别不好受的!"
犹如侵犯产权
张建仁指出,这种不负责的建筑工程,就好比侵犯产权的行为,尤其是民都鲁发展局,因为民都鲁发展局乃是民都鲁省的地方政府,应该以民为本的原则来为民服务,但如今却没有看到该局采取积极的应对措施,或巡视ISTIWAJAR住宅区的行动。
"民都鲁发展局乃批准工程的部门,应该要在工程进行的当儿,派员前来巡视了解,积极的与地方人民沟通,了解最新进展,而不是只听取发展商,建筑商的片面之词就好。这种行为应该要改善。"
张建仁也于昨日巡视ISTIWAJAR住宅区民房龟裂,土地下陷问题之后,向本报记者表示,将会由基都隆区州议员周政新收集情报,以便在即将于今年11月10日召开的砂州立法议会会议中提呈向政府反映。
"由我们州议员在州立法议会中,向民都鲁发展局施压。"
张建仁也表示,一旦有关当局还是继续的不加理会或是不予回应,那么这件事情,相信会在法庭上寻求解决。
张建仁也不希望类似事件会衍生至法庭程序,相信会有一个圆满的解决方法,尤其是居民会获得当局的赔偿等等。
张建仁也指出,如果这件事情无法在州议会中获得妥善解决的话,那么行动党将会由都东区州议员叶海量律师负责跟进这事情。
都东区州议员叶海量也表示,行动党将会协助ISTIWAJAR花园住宅区的居民,根据有关事件,提供法律援助。

拟立会提呈动议 制定砂资讯自由法

Posted: 24 Oct 2014 07:55 PM PDT

(本报古晋24日讯)行动党哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁透露,他会在即将召开的州议会中提呈"2014年砂拉越资讯自由法案动议",旨在提升民众对政府的监督,减少朋党贪污事件,进而共同建立起透明、公平与廉政施政的政府。
亦为行动党砂州联委会主席的他是于今日召开的一项新闻发布会上,如是指出。
他认为,在民主制度下,如果要让全民监督政府行政是否透明化,最有效的方法就是让每一名公众都可以获取政府部门的资讯。
因此,在下个月召开的州立法议会中,他将提呈砂拉越资讯自由法案动议,以让任何公众人士都有权向政府部门索取一些相关的资讯。
他进一步指出,提呈这项动议,主要是因为州政府在过去几十年,在不透明的程序下,把许多政府合约、工程、伐木执照,都批给一小撮人,此举更加深民众对砂州政府行政充满朋党操作的贪污印象。
公众可索取任何资讯
他直言,新上任的砂首席部长在许多场合公开表明要建立起透明度、公平与廉政操作,鉴此,张健仁认为,2014年砂拉越资讯自由法案一旦获得通过,公众就可以索取政府部门的任何资讯,进而加强民众对政府的监督,有助于减少朋党贪污的事件。
他强调,此举也是要迈向真正透明、公平及清廉施政的政府。
他表示,该动议将今天提呈到州议会秘书,所阐明的包括州政府部门必须聘请一名资讯官员负责收集和整理所有部门的资料,任何公众都有权利向该官员申请有关部门的所有的资料,并且,有关官员必须在30天之内给予答复。
"目前不仅民众无法得到政府的资料,甚至行动党的州议员在州议会发出提问时,也得不到一个全面的答复。"

Rep seeks to introduce private members’ bill

Posted: 24 Oct 2014 07:50 PM PDT


Kota Sentosa assemblyman Chong Chieng Jen has submitted a motion to the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) to introduce a private members' bill for the proposed Sarawak Freedom of Information Ordinance 2014.

Chong told reporters yesterday that a full bill has been drafted for the proposed ordinance, which aims to enhance disclosure of information for public interest, and to provide every individual reasonable right of access to information from every state government department.
He claimed that the public has been kept in the dark about the processes involving the award of government contracts, approval of projects, alienation of state land and issuance of logging licenses.
"The public has the right to knowledge. This is a move towards effective democracy and to put the state government administration under the greater scrutiny of the public, not just the Aduns (state elected representatives)," he said.
On the features of the proposed ordinance, he said it would, among others, involve the appointment of an information officer for every department.
He said anyone committing an offence, including destroying, erasing, damaging, concealing, blocking or falsifying information within the control of any department with the intention of preventing disclosure, would be liable to a maximum fine of RM50,000 or maximum five years in prison or both.
Chong, who is Democratic Action Party (DAP) Sarawak chairman, said he hoped the bill would be tabled and eventually passed in the DUN.
The next DUN sitting will be from Nov 10-19.

吁阿德南再迈进一步,承认独中统考文凭。

Posted: 23 Oct 2014 08:07 PM PDT

民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁表示欣慰,继沙巴、槟州和雪兰莪之后,砂拉越成为全马第四个州属,有常年拨款独中的州政府。

张健仁说,砂州政府拨这300万令吉给独中,是一个好的开始,并希望州政府将逐年增加这数目。毕竟,独中的办学经费昂贵,300万令吉还是非常不足。若政府增加独中拨款,独中的校董们也可相应的减轻他们的负担。而且,有更多的办学经费,学校也可办得更好,招收更多学生,培育出更多优秀的人才,对国家社会有更大的贡献。

张氏说,阿德南昨天的宣布拨款,也再次证明,过去人联党给予华社"政府不能拨款给华校"的理由,如,校地不是政府地、政策不允许、等,都是在欺骗和隐瞒华社。阿德南的拨款证明,政策是由执政者定的,也可由执政者改的。


宪法赋予砂政府,权力承认统考文凭

针对阿德南所说"若他有权力,他将承认独中统考文凭"的这番话,张氏表示,虽然阿德南没有权力左右联邦政府录取和聘雇公务员的决定,但,他有绝对的权力决定砂州州政府公务员的录取和聘雇条件。

张健仁指出,根据我国宪法,砂州的公务员制度有别于西马的州属。西马许多州属,包括槟州和雪兰莪,其州政府公务员也是属联邦公共服务局管辖,就连这些州属的州秘书,也是由联邦政府所批准委任的。

"但是,砂拉越的州政府公务员,如土地局、市议会、县议会、州部门等的官员,都是由砂州政府全权处理。包括砂拉越州秘书的职位,也是由砂首席部长全权委任,联邦政府或联邦公共服务局没有干涉的权力。"

张氏指出,有鉴于砂州政府的这个宪法权力,阿德南有绝对的权力,拟定录取和聘雇州政府公务员的条件,包括,把独中统考文凭列为与马来西亚高级文凭(STPM)或马来西亚大学预科班文凭(Matriculation)同等级的文凭,以此为录取和聘雇州政府公务员的其中之一条件。这就是华社长久来所争取的,"政府承认独中统考文凭"了。


承认统考文凭,只需州内阁决定

他说,要联邦公共服务局承认独中统考文凭,需等到民联执政中央。但是,要砂拉越州公共服务局承认独中统考文凭,阿德南一个决定就可以了。既然阿德南公开表示支持承认独中统考文凭,在砂州方面,已没有任何理由再拖延承认统考文凭的事宜了。只需要一个州内阁的决定,之后一纸批文而已,即日就可使到独中统考文凭在砂拉越受到政府承认。


吁阿德南再迈进一步,成大马第一人

张健仁呼吁,阿德南将独中拨款列入州政府的财政常年拨款,不是马来西亚的一个先列,但是,若他能运用其身为砂州首席部长的职权,承认独中统考文凭,那他将是马来西亚建国以来,第一位执政者,促使独中统考文凭受到政府承认,名留青史。

"而且,若砂州政府能率先承认独中统考文凭,那也能凸显砂州政府的开明和公平对待各族人民。这也可展示,砂州虽然在基建硬体设施落后西马20年,但在思维开明度上,却较西马进步20年。这将是砂州人民最值得骄傲的地方。"


张氏也说,现在的问题不是阿德南能不能做到,而是他要不要做到这一点。
