DAP files graft report against Finance Ministry

Posted: 12 Sep 2014 11:11 PM PDT

A member of Sarawak DAP filed a report with the Malaysian Anti-corruption Commission (MACC) in Kuching today on secret conversions of open tender processes into selected tender processes by the Finance Ministry.

These acts of corruption, which the party claimed in its report occurred in the tender processes of three projects called by the ministry, could lead to abuse of power, corruption and cronyism.

The reports involved two in connection with the construction of Package B of Jalan Kapit-Song, and Package C of the same road, worth RM100 million each, and the proposed Kanowit Bridge, which is worth RM150 million.

Speaking to the media outside the MACC headquarters in Kuching, Sarawak DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen said a member of his party had lodged a report with the MACC on the secret conversion of the tender processes for the three projects.

"Initially the projects were advertised for open tender process, but later, the Finance Ministry secretly converted the open tender process into selected tender process.

"For the open tender process, anyone can submit their application, but for the selected tender process, only a few names nominated by the ministry are eligible to tender.

"There is room for corruption, abuse of power and cronyism under the selected tender system," said Chong, who is the MP for Bandar Kuching and assemblyperson for Kota Sentosa.

'Suddenly and secretly changed'

He added: "The most suspicious thing in this case is that the whole thing was already announced and advertised in the media.

"And, despite the fact that 50 applications have been received for both the road projects, the Finance Ministry suddenly and secretly changed it (the open tender process) into selected tender process.

"Given the lack of transparency in the way this was done, a member of Sarawak DAP has decided to lodge a report with the MACC against the Finance Ministry.

"I hope the MACC will investigate the matter thoroughly without fear or favour."

Chong went on to add that he had raised the issue with the ministry, twice, and the official reason it gave in Parliament was that it wanted to urgently implement the projects.

Under the open tender process, the closing dates for the three projects were supposed to be called in March and April this year.

"But because of the secret conversion to selected tenders, the projects have not commenced until now. Had the ministry proceeded with the open tenders, I am sure the projects would have started by now," Chong said.

Meanwhile, it is understood that 10 invited companies have been earmarked for the road projects in Kapit.

Six of them are said to be owned by a relative of a minister in Sarawak.

As for the Kanowit Bridge, three of the 10 invited contractors are either newly formed companies or have a paid-up capital of RM500,000 to carry out a project worth RM150 million.

"This is most ridiculous as the backgrounds of the companies are questionable," Chong said, adding, "I think this is a very serious issue and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who is also the finance minister, has lot to answer on these matters."

‘No response’ but earthworks stirring at Batu Kawah site

Posted: 11 Sep 2014 10:06 PM PDT

KUCHING: The state has yet to respond to a proposed project to build affordable housings on a 263-acre state land opposite Batu Kawah New Township (MJC), but a recent earth-filling work at the site has raised curiosity of opposition lawmakers.

Chong holds up a sketch on his proposed development of public affordable housings and amenities while Chiew shows a picture of a recent earth-filling work taking place at the said land.

State Democratic Action Party (DAP) chairman Chong Chieng Jen proposed for the development of four parcels of land – Lots 127, 128, 2301 and 2304 all of Block 225 Kuching North Land District – with a total area of 106.67 hectares.

The proposed development, which was suggested to be undertaken by the Housing Commission, consists of the building of 104 blocks of 5-storey residential flats containing 30 units each, making a total of 3,120 units of affordable housing for the poor; two primary schools with five acres of land each and various sports facilities including a public swimming pool.

Also proposed was an allocation of 20 acres of land to the Chinese Middle Schools Management Board for development of shophouses to generate income for the school board.

However, the Bandar Kuching MP has not received any reply from the government in respect to his application sent to Chief Minister Tan Sri Datuk Amar Adenan Satem through a letter dated July 31.

"It is shocking that recently, earth-filling work was seen being carried out on the land although it is still registered as a State Land. A land search on the four parcels of land with the Land and Survey Department revealed that as of July 30, the State is the registered proprietor of the land.

"The immediate question that comes to my mind is whether the work is done by some 'crony companies' or that it is done by the government itself, which is unlikely. The state government normally does not carry out earth-filling work," he told a press conference at DAP headquarters here yesterday.

Also present was Batu Kawah assemblywoman Christina Chiew.
Also, there was no signboard detailing the works, project length and the name of company engaged to undertake the contract carried out at the land.

In this regards, Chong who is also Kota Sentosa assemblyman wrote to the Land and Survey Dept superintendent (Kuching Division) and forwarded a copy to Adenan to enquire on the matter.

The letter enquired whether there was any application made to the Land and Survey Department for the earth-filling work to be carried out and whether any approval has been given to the applicant to carry out such work.

If so, Chong queried on what ground was the approval granted and what action would the department take against the contractor if there was no approval.

"Who made such application and on what locus standi did the applicant base its application? It is incredulous and unbelievable that someone can be so blatant as to enter a state land which is located next to a main road and carry out earth-filling work as if the land belongs to that person," he said.

He hoped the department will take immediate action on the matter. In addition, he urged the chief minister to approve the submitted plan to build over 3,000 low and medium cost housings for low-income earners.

Chong expected the four parcels of land under the jurisdiction of Padawan Municipal Council to have a market value of around RM500 million.

批给私人发展商? 石角263.6英亩地已填土

Posted: 11 Sep 2014 10:05 PM PDT

(本报古晋11日讯)民主行动党砂州委员会主席兼国州议员张健仁透露,行动党向州政府提呈在石角新市镇对面兴建中低廉价组屋的建议书,截至目前都没有回覆。惟,该土地近期却明目张胆的展开填土工程,是否意味着该土地已批给私人发展商?

他表示,行动党于7月已向首长丹斯里阿迪南沙登提呈建议书,并附上设计蓝图,倘若首长同意及批准该建议书,届时负责进行该计划的就是政府机构。

可惜的是,他表示直到现在并没获得州政府任何回覆。

他解释,石角新市镇对面的4片土地面积有263.6英亩,市价轻易可达5亿令吉,而根据行动党提呈的建议书中,除了兴建3120个单位的中低廉价组屋外,同时还有体育馆、两所学校及保留给中中的土地。

他称,调查显示4片土地还是属于政府地,因此他将在今日致函砂土地与测量局,并要求土地与测量局给予解释及答覆。

张健仁认为,土地与测量局应立即采取行动,毕竟该土地是政府地,而填土工程早在6月杪已开始展开。

"任何填土工程都必须获得土地与测量局批准才能进行,否则就是非法活动。与此同时,通常填土工程都有设立资讯牌,显示被委任的承包商、动工及完工的日期,以及发展计划的资讯等,可是我们都没有看到相关资讯牌。"

他吁请首长批准行动党提呈的建议书,毕竟与其批准给朋党公司中饱私囊,倒不如兴建中低廉价组屋给贫困居民,为他们提供负担得起的住宿。

Note to AG: Selangor Water Restructuring Agreement is Illegal?

Posted: 11 Sep 2014 03:07 AM PDT

Yesterday I issued a statement calling upon the federal government to postpone signing the final Selangor water restructuring agreement on the ground that doing so would raise questions of moral and legal legitimacy.

I have since learnt that serious questions can be raised about MenteriBesar Khalid Ibrahim’s legal legitimacy based on a verdict by the Federal Court, when it dealt with the Perak MenteriBesar dispute in 2010.

I emphasize again that Khalid cannot and has not challenged the fact he no longer commands the support of the majority in the state assembly.

Therefore, he tendered his resignation to the Selangor Sultan on 26th August.

And although the Selangor Sultan has asked him to stay on till a replacement is found, it still does not warrant for the need to rush through with inking the final agreement.

His continued status as the MB is at the behest of the Sultan, whose directive clearly means Khalid is only filling a gap, temporarily.

When the former Perak MB,NizarJamaluddin, refused to resign his post, Chief Justice AriffinZakaria said he cannot continue to govern after losing majority support and that to do so would tantamount to going against the principles of democracy.

The Chief Justice further concluded that as Nizar had refused to resign, he and his executive council members were deemed to have vacated their respective offices.

The relevant clauses in the Perak and Selangor constitution are similar in the material parts. The Federal Court judgment clearly remindsus of the status of the MenteriBesarwho has lost majority support, loses his legitimacy to govern.

Thus, Khalid’s status is even weaker that of a caretaker Menteri Besar

As such, Khalid should not be signing the water contract or any other contracts dealing with any of the state assets.

And taking pot shots at me coupled with lame accusations would only serve to undermine his position even further.

Any third party who therefore enters into such contracts should take notice that a future state government may take the position that such contracts are not legally binding and act accordingly.

Given the severity of this issue, the AG should advise the federal government that the final water restructuring agreement, scheduled to be signed Friday, might be illegal.

别再玩弄经济数字 实际解决通膨问题

Posted: 09 Sep 2014 06:02 PM PDT

(本报古晋9日讯)行动党国州议员张健仁促请国阵政府和部长不要沉醉在玩弄经济数字的游戏,反之,实际去解决人民所面对的通货膨胀。
张健仁今日召开新闻发布会时表示,我国首相署部长拿督斯里阿都瓦希两天前发布一个最新的调查数据,宣称我国一个家庭在2014年的每月收入达到5900令吉。
他指出,这项调查数据对于全国50%以上的家庭都没有意义,因为平均收入是包括计算富有家庭在内,然后再平均分配。
"举个例子,一个咖啡店里的顾客都是家庭月收入1000多令吉,但是突然一个富豪前来消费,那么整个咖啡店顾客的家庭平均月收入都会变得很高。"
张健仁出示一份2012年家庭收入及基本生活福利设施调查报告表示,有关报告显示我国每个家庭当时的平均月收入是5000令吉,不过家庭收入的中位数只有3626令吉。
我国贫富差距大
他继称,有关报告显示最低收入的40%家庭平均收入只有1847令吉,最高收入的20%家庭平均收入则高达1万2159令吉,可见我国贫富差距的鸿沟之大。
他说,截至2012年杪,马来西亚的贫富差距情况比泰国和印尼更糟糕,以0至1基尼指数来计算,马来西亚是0.431、泰国0.4、印尼0.37和印度0.33。
他再举例,我国在2013年共有418万户家庭获得"一个马来西亚援助金",这些家庭都必须是月收入少过3000令吉,才能符合申请资格。
他声言,月收入少过3000令吉的家庭,在城市生活是很艰难的,因此政府和部长不该沉醉在玩弄经济数字的游戏,而是要实际去解决通货膨胀问题。

Opposition MPs hold key to increase in state seats – Chong

Posted: 04 Sep 2014 06:41 PM PDT

Without the consent of Members of Parliament from Pakatan Rakyat, there is no way that the Election Commissions (EC) can re-delineate the State and Parliamentary constituencies, and there is no way that Sarawak will have any new State constituencies.

I am referring to the recent statement issued by the Sarawak EC that the EC is planning to create 9 new State constituencies in Sarawak.  Coincidentally, currently, there are 9 ADUNs who have quitted SUPP and SPDP and now in UPP and TERAS.  These BN-plus ADUNs seem to have no seat to contest in the coming State Elections given that SUPP and SPDP objected strongly against them.

It seems that the creation of these 9 seats are tailor-made for these 9 ADUNs.  As a matter of principle, such intention in constituency re-delineation is WRONG.  This is using tax-payer's money to solve the internal squabble of BarisanNasional.

In reality, these 9 ADUNs or anyone harbouring such hope of having 9 new seats to be divided among these 9 ADUNs are in for a big disappointment.

To increase the number of State or Parliamentary constituencies, the EC needs to get the support of no less than 2/3 Members of Parliament in DewanRaykat (the Lower House).  At present, there are 222 MPs in the House, out of which 86 are Pakatan Rakyat MPs, 135 BN MPs and 1 Independent MP.

If there were to be any constituency re-delineation, BN will need to have at least 148 MPs supporting such motion in the Parliament. With its present 135 members and 1 Independent, it is still 12 short.  In the last Parliament when the Pakatan Rakyat only had 79 MPs, BN was 5 short and yet it could not get that crucial 5 votes.  What more to say, now that it is 12 short?

In fact, according to our Constitution, there should be constituency re-delineation every 8 years.  The last re-delineation exercise for Parliamentary seats was carried out in year 2003 and as for Sarawak state constituencies, it was done in year 2005.

As such, it is overdue for another constituency re-delineation exercise, but BN will not do it because without the 2/3rd majority support in Parliament, BN could not engage in its gerrymandering to enhance its winning chances.

I wish to reiterate, DAP will not agree (and I am sure neither PKR nor PAS will agree) with the lop-sided constituency delineation whereby the number of voters in urban seats are several times more than the number of voters in rural seats.  Unless the EC will put in practice the principle of ONE PERSON ONE VOTE ONE VALUE in the upcoming constituency re-delineation exercise, there is no way that there will be any re-delineation or increase in State seats or Parliament seats.

Ultimately, being what SUPP and SPDP have always been, they will just cow-tow to the wishes of the PBB and the Chief Minister of the day. As such, I foresee these two parties compromising their stand in the allocation of seats.  Say what they like, they will ultimately give up some of their seats to UPP and TERAS.

Such subservience and total submission to the powers that be is the main reason for the downfall of SUPP and rendered them a redundant party which is powerless to fight for the people's rights.

Kenyataan Akhbar Setiausaha Agung DAP merangkap Ahli Parlimen Kawasan Bagan Lim Guan Eng Di Kuala Lumpur Pada 9.9.2014.

Posted: 08 Sep 2014 09:37 PM PDT

Bagi pihak DAP, saya ingin memohon ampun kepada Duli Yang Maha Mulia Tuanku Sultan Selangor Daru Ehsan kerana telah menyebabkan Tuanku merasa dukacita terhadap keputusan parti DAP mengemukakan nama ADUN Kajang YB Datuk Seri Wan Azizah binti Wan Ismail sahaja sebagai calon YAB Menteri Besar Selangor yang baru.

Keputusan DAP mengemukakan nama YB Datuk Seri Wan Azizah sahaja ini kepada DYMM Tuanku telah dicapai selepas rundingan dengan Ketua Umum Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim bahawa ia mengikut konvensyen yang dituruti sebelum ini berkaitan dengan lantikan YAB Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim sebagai Menteri Besar Selangor pada 2013, serta sokongan bertulis daripada majoriti 30 daripada 56 ADUN Selangor kepada YB Datuk Seri Wan Azizah sebagai calon Menteri Besar Selangor, dan kata sepakat (consensus) Pakatan Rakyat bahawa calon Menteri Besar Selangor adalah daripada PKR.

DAP mengulangi kesetiaan kepada institusi Raja Berperlembagaan yang tidak berbelah bagi dan akan berunding dengan YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim tentang titah Tuanku DYMM Sultan Selangor yang terkandung dalam kenyataan akhbar oleh Setiausaha Sulit Tuanku.

Good Governance Requires Postponement in Signing the Selangor Water Restructuring Agreement.

Posted: 08 Sep 2014 09:35 PM PDT

Signing the water agreement in the midst of leadership changes could lead to legitimacy questions.

Anyone following the developments in Selangor will know that Khalid Ibrahim is, at best, a caretaker Menteri Besar.

His resignation has been accepted by the Sultan, who has however asked him to stay on till a replacement is found.

Therefore, my question is whether a care-taker MB, working with a skeletal state cabinet, can sign a deal worth RM 9.65 billion especially given the huge financial and other implications for the state?

Media reports suggest the final agreement on the water restructuring exercise is scheduled to be signed by the end of this week.

Signing the agreement in the midst of a change in administration could lead to questions of moral and legal legitimacy, especially since there has hardly been any openness and transparency in the negotiations so far.

As such, the federal government should not hastily rush into signing the final agreement on the water restructuring exercise in Selangor.

It should, instead, wait for the new Selangor leadership to be sworn in, in the interest of good governance and accountability.

The incoming leadership should be allowed to take ownership of the final agreement since they will be held responsible in implementing the various undertakings and financial commitments, including the proposed tariff increase in the coming years.

Selangor’s new leadership should not be put in a difficult position especially if there are court challenges on the legitimacy of the water restructuring exercise.

Furthermore, the signing of the agreement can be put on hold given the on-going negotiations between the federal government and water treatment operator, Splash.

And if the Federal government agrees to a 'replacement cost' to up the RM 250 million Selangor's compensation offer vis-à-vis Splash, the state might be forced to re-look the RM 9.65 billion commitment, which may entail a rewriting of the yet to be inked water restructuring agreement.

So why rush to conclude an incomplete agreement?

Clearly, more work needs to be done including restoring political and moral legitimacy in the leadership of the state.

Thus the Federal government has to postpone signing on the dotted lines to some point in the next months, in the interest of the people of Selangor.
