KUCHING: Sarawak DAP has called on those who cared for the state and country to attend the Bersih 4 rally on Aug 29 and 30.
Its chairman, Chong Chieng Jen, said the two-day rally would serve as a `wake-up call' to Umno and the BN in general.
"As it is now, Umno and BN are beyond redemption, and many people are aware that in order to save our country, we need change," he told a press conference here yesterday.
Thus, the purpose of Bersih 4 was to get the people to come together and push for reforms and change for the country, he claimed.
Chong, who is also Bandar Kuching MP and Kota Sentosa assemblyman, said although previous Bersih rallies in Peninsular Malaysia had brought about political tsunamis and enabled the opposition to deny the BN a two-third majority in Parliament and formed governments in some states, Sarawak still remained the 'fixed deposit state' of the BN.
Chong said the Bersih 4 rally this weekend would not bring about the immediate resignation of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak but would form great pressure on BN and Umno and bring about the awakening of those who do not care about politics and help in the furtherance of democracy in the state.
Chong pointed out that the more the number of people at the two-day rally, the bigger the effect would be.
"It is only when there is sufficient awakening of the people in Sarawak that will put pressure on Umno. Otherwise, they are in their comfort zone thinking that Sarawak will always support BN as the government."
For those who wish to participate in the Bersih 4 rally with the DAP, Chong said the gathering point for the party would be in front of Hilton Kuching at 2pm on Aug 29.
"We will gather in front of the hotel before we march towards Song Kheng Hai ground, which is the final point of gathering for the rally."

砂不是国阵定存州,火箭吁全民出席BERSIH4

Posted: 22 Aug 2015 05:46 PM PDT

砂州民主行动党全力支持净选盟"BERSIH 4"所提出的4个诉求,即:
1. 干净选举
2. 干净政府
3. 异议权力
4. 拯救经济
5. 巩固议会民主


无可否认,目前马来西亚人民所面对的最大问题就是经济压力。 GST的实施、马币贬值、外汇流失、百货通胀和经济缓慢,使到大众都喘不过气来。 更糟糕的是,许多人都对马来西亚失去希望。 砂拉越是马来西亚的一份子,马来西亚经济破产,砂州也不能独善其身。


最终,还是那句话,"大家可以失望,但却不可绝望"。


解决经济问题,从肃贪开始


纵观今天马来西亚经济的困境,基本上就是贪污、腐败和权力集中的后果。 因此,要解救马来西亚和砂拉越,就必须在制度上进行改革肃贪。


净选盟所提出的10大制度上的改革,是解救砂州和马来西亚的治根良策:


干净选举
1. 公平的选举制度与程序
2. 选委会应直接向国会负责


干净政府
1. 首相不得兼任财长;
2. 国会改革,使国会不会继续成为行政的橡胶印
3. 总检察长与律政司应该分成两职;
4. 反贪污委员会应直接成向国会负责;
5. 落实《资讯自由法令》,赋予人民"知"的权力;
6. 部长与政府高官公告财产。


异议权力
1. 废除/修改压迫性法令;
2. 设立"独立警察投诉与过失委员会"(IPCMC)。


唯有落实这10大制度改革,才能拯救马来西亚的经济和国运。但是,国阵政府完全没有意愿要落实这些改革。反之,纳吉最近的施政和手段,完全与这些改革背道而驰。


BERSIH4游行的意义


国家需要改革。 目前,许多人民都知道这事实。但是,同时,也有许多人民不了解,还是继续被执政者蒙骗。"BERSIH4"游行的意义就是,汇集全部了解国情的人民力量,唤醒那些还不了解实况的民众,一起推动国家的改革。


今天的国阵和巫统,已经走到无可救药的地步了。 唯有换政府,国家才有希望。在西马,BERSIH 1、2和3之后,带动了整个西马的政治改革浪潮,使在野党成功否决国阵国会2/3的霸权,在一些州属更成为州执政党。 惜,砂州仍旧成为国阵的定存州,无法实现全国改朝换代的愿景。


大家必须清楚的一点,这"BERSIH4"的游行不会使纳吉立刻下台。 但是,它可对整体国阵和巫统造成压力,加速巫统分裂,更重要的是,它可协助唤醒那些还对政治不了解,不关心的民众,对砂州的民主运动有很大的帮助。 越多人出席,唤醒大众的效应就越大。 因此,我们呼吁大家出席今次29日和30日的BERSIH4的集会。 行动党的国州议员和州领袖也将出席这两天的集会。

Adenan’s insistence to sell the 267-acre MJC land at the price of RM115 million only will be a permanent stigma of his government.

Posted: 22 Aug 2015 04:50 AM PDT

Adenan's insistence to sell the 267-acre MJC land at the price of RM115 million only will be a permanent stigma of his government.
He may think that he has "checkmated" me by insisting that I first disclose the name of the intended purchaser who has proposed to purchase the land for RM620 million before he even consider the development plan submitted by the said intended purchaser.
However, the general public views it differently.
All Sarawakian are aware of the usual Barisan Nasional's oppressive tactic against DAP's supporters and sympathisers, especially when it comes to businessmen and property developers.
As such, the intended purchaser who submitted the proposal to buy the land at the price of RM620 million has insisted that I must not disclose his name unless Adenan shows some form of goodwill and sincerity by approving in principle the plan that he proposed.
By merely indicating an approval in principle and accepting the intended purchaser's offer, the State Government will get an additional RM505 million. Is that too much to ask of Adenan for an additional RM505 million revenue for the State Government?
Whatever excuses that Adenan may give, ultimately, the key issue is clear.
It is a matter of selling the 267 acres of State land at the price of RM115 million or RM620 million and Adenan chose to sell it at RM115 million only. Why did he do that? It does not make logical sense. Is he subject to control by someone higher?
At the end of the day, the people of Sarawak lost RM505 million which becomes the profits of the 2 shareholders of Standard Parade Development Sdn Bhd, the BN cronies.
Clearly, Adenan cannot exonerate himself by claiming that the deal was entered into by the previous Administration. The Sale and Purchase Agreement was signed by the Government on 8-3-2014 which is after he became the Chief Minister of Sarawak.
This land deal is a rip-off on the people of Sarawak and Adenan is condoning such rip-off to happen right under his nose. This will go down record of Sarawak history as a stigma in Adenan's government.
Meanwhile, I will continue to exert pressure on the MACC to expedite the investigation of the matter.

阿德南让砂人民失去5亿500万令吉

Posted: 22 Aug 2015 03:32 AM 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,"1亿1500万令吉贱卖石角267英亩政府地"的事件,将是阿德南掌首长职的一个"污点"。 因为,它使砂州人民失去5亿500万令吉。
在本周一的砂州州议会,阿德南坚持要张氏先透露有关那位愿出价6亿2000万令吉购买该片政府地的买家身份,才考虑是否批准其所提呈的发展计划。
张健仁坚持,阿德南至少必须先原则上批准该发展计划,先展示有诚意考虑接受该买家的发展计划,该买家才愿意透露它的身份。
"砂国阵政府是出了名压迫在野党支持者的政府。 在砂州,尤其是那些大型的发展商,更不敢公开的支持在野党,惧怕被政府算账。 因此,这位愿出价6亿2000万令吉买该片地的买家特别声明,除非阿德南有做出原则上的批准该发展图,展示其诚意,不然他不愿透露他的身份。"
"所有,你阿德南打死我,我也不会透露他的身份,除非你阿德南先展示诚意,原则上批准该发展图先。"
张健仁质问阿德南为何如此在意要先知道谁是买家,而却不愿意表示是否会考虑该份已提呈给他的发展图。
"难道要阿德南原则上先批准那个发展图如此难? 而且,这涉及州政府多赚5亿500令吉收入的事项,难道阿德南连一个基本的诚意都无法展示吗? 如果州政府连这基本的合作和诚意都没有,又有谁放心投资几十亿令吉的发展?"
张氏说,不论阿德南如何狡辩,整个事件的重点就是,阿德南宁可以1亿1500万令吉的价格贱卖这267英亩的政府地给国阵朋党公司(Standard Parade Development有限公司),也不接受他人以6亿2000万令吉的价格买同一片地。 当然,损失的不是他个人,而是砂州政府,也既是砂州人民。
张氏也说,对于这起贱卖政府地的舞弊,阿德南不能推卸责任。 因为,该份贱卖土地的合约,是于2014年3月8日才签署的。 当时,阿德南已经上任为砂州首长了。 除非阿德南承认,他背后还有人在操控他的决定。
"这贱卖政府地的交易也暴露,阿德南还是欠缺政治决心施廉政。"
张健仁强调,这弊案是在剥削砂州人民。 5亿500令吉可以为砂州进行许多建设惠及全民,不应该被几个朋党如此的瓜分和吞食。 因此,虽然砂州政府允许此弊案,行动党还是会继续向反贪污委员会施压,以尽快调查此案。

Sarawak Continues to be Marginalised under 11th Malaysia Plan Despite Adenan’s Promises

Posted: 18 Aug 2015 06:20 AM PDT

18-8-2015

The 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) tabled by Adenan Satem is no difference from the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP) in terms of allocation of fund for Sarawak.
In yesterday Adenan's speech in Sarawak DUN, he informed DUN that the total allocation of fund by the Federal Government for Sarawak under the 10MP was RM18.5 billion.
" This allocation is made up of Federal Fund totalling RM18.8 billion to implement 1,529 projects and State Fund of RM18.5 billion to implement 1,114 projects."
(p.9, 3rd para of Hansard)
He also informed Sarawak DUN that the total allocation of Federal Fund for Sarawak under the 11MP will be RM20 billion.
" The approved allocation for the State Eleventh Malaysia is RM20 billion to implement 915 projects. So, our contribution is not very far from what we ask from the Federal Government. I hope they will give us as much as we will give. Not give less than what we want to spend ourselves on Eleventh Malaysia Plan."
(p.21, 1st para of Hansard)
10th Malaysia Plan(2011 – 2015)
Total Federal allocation for Sarawak --RM18.8 billion
Average annual Federal Allocation for Sarawak --RM3.76 billion
11th Malaysia Plan (2016 – 2020)
Total Federal allocation for Sarawak --RM20 billion
Average annual Federal Allocation for Sarawak --RM4 billion
All the allocation under the Malaysia Plans are allocated through the annual government Budget presented in Parliament. As the allocation set for Sarawak under the 10MP is 18.8 billion, therefore, on average, Sarawak will be getting about RM3.76 billion a year over the period of 5 years under the 10MP.
For the past 5 years, the annual Development Expenditure under the Federal Government's Budget is about RM50 billion. Sarawak is only getting about RM3.76 billion each year which is only a meagre 7.5% of the Federal Government's Development Expenditure budget.
Despite Adenan's repeated claim that he will not allow the Federal Government to continue marginalise Sarawak, the figure in the 11MP speaks otherwise.
Even assuming the Federal Government honours the pledges under the 11MP, which is RM4 billion per year, and that the Development Expenditure maintains at RM50 billion per year without any increment, Sarawak will be getting only 8% of the Federal Development Expenditure.
With the land mass of Sarawak constituting more than 1/3rd of Malaysia land mass, how can Adenan expect this 8% Development Expenditure to enable Sarawak to catch up with the level of development in West Malaysia?
Furthermore, given the inflation rate, the real value of RM20 billion for year 2016 – 2020 is well below the real value of RM18.8 billion for the year 2011 – 2015.
With such figures, for Adenan to claim that the Federal Government is now placing more importance in Sarawak, he is either being plain naïve or trying to fool the people of Sarawak.
In fact it is an irony that despite speaking out so strongly against "marginalisation of Sarawak", Adenan himself tabled the 11MP which marginalise Sarawak.
Sarawak has been taken for a ride by the Barisan Nasional Government for more than 52 years and the 11MP is no difference from the previous 10 Malaysia Plans. The marginalisation will continue and Sarawak will continue to be backward so long as BN continues to be the government.
Therefore, in the interest of Sarawak, Sarawak BN must withdraw from the National BN. At present, Sarawak BN has the number to tilt the balance of power at Federal level and UMNO is also at its weakest in the nation's history, it is the best time for Adenan to make the move.
Therefore, I call upon Adenan to be frank with the people of Sarawak and not try to sweet-talk his way out of the reality. Otherwise, he is a just an accomplice to such marginalisation.

国阵在《第11大马计划》下,继续亏待和边缘化砂州发展。

Posted: 18 Aug 2015 06:18 AM 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抨击国阵在《第11大马计划》下,继续亏待和边缘化砂州发展。


张健仁在今日的文告中指出,阿德南于昨日州议会提呈《第11大马计划》时向州议会报告,在《第10大马计划》下,联邦总共拨给砂州185亿令吉的拨款。 同时,阿德南也说,在《第11大马计划》下,联邦拨给砂州的总拨款将是200亿令吉。

张氏说,阿德南在州议会的发表,全部都清清楚楚的记录在州议会当天的会议记录第9页和第21页。 以下是这两个大马计划的数据比较:

第10大马计划(2011 – 2015)
联邦拨给砂州的总拨款--185亿令吉
联邦平均每年拨给砂州的拨款--37亿6000万令吉

第11大马计划(2016 – 2020)
联邦拨给砂州的总拨款 -- 200亿令吉
联邦平均每年拨给砂州的拨款 -- 40亿令吉

张氏指出,大马计划是一个5年发展蓝图。 它几乎下的拨款,是经由每年国会所通过的财政预算案中所拨出来的。 因此,在《第10大马计划》下砂州的拨款既已设在185亿令吉,那平均每年财政预算案将拨出37.6亿令吉,5年总数185亿令吉。

他说,在过去的5年,联邦政府每年财政预算案的"发展开支"大约是500亿令吉,而砂拉越每年只得到大约37.6亿令吉的拨款款额,只是占了联邦财政预算案"发展开支"的7.5%而已。

张健仁揶揄,阿德南上任以后,频频公开指责联邦政府过去52年亏待砂州,也不断的强调他不会允许联邦政府继续的亏待和边缘化砂州,但是,阿德南昨天自己所提呈的《第11大马计划》里的数字却显示,砂拉越今后5年,还是会继续的被联邦政府边缘化和亏待。

张氏说,根据阿德南在州议会的报告,在《第11大马计划下》(2016 – 2020年),砂州将得到总数约200亿令吉的发展拨款

"这意味着,从2016年 – 2020年这5年的期间,砂州每年的发展拨款将是大约40亿令吉。 就算联邦政府在这5年期间的发展开支保持在500亿令吉左右(通常是每年增加的),40亿令吉只不过是500亿令吉的8%而已。"

张氏说,砂拉越的面积占了马来西亚总面积的1/3以上,这每年区区8%的'发展开支'的拨款,又如何能使到砂州的发展追上西马? 更何况,在百货通胀的情况下,《第11大马计划》期间(即,2016年 – 2020年)的40亿令吉的实质价值,远不如《第10大马计划》期间(即,2011年 – 2015年)的37.6亿令吉的实质价值。

"最近,阿德南表现的英勇十足,不断的发表什么'我们等了52年了,不能再等了'、'西马有什么砂拉越也要有'这类的言论,但是,非常讽刺的是,经由他亲自在砂州州议会所提呈的《第11大马计划》,里面的拨款数字证明,砂州还是被国阵政府亏待和边缘化。"

张健仁奉劝阿德南,不论他在砂州人民面前,针对联邦政府发表了多么强硬的言论,最终,因为还是国阵执政,砂州终究还是逃不掉"被联邦政府边缘化和亏待"的命运。

张氏说,如果阿德南认为每年联邦政府只拨了8%的'发展开支'给砂州不是一种"亏待"或"边缘化"砂州,那他实在是太天真,不然就是企图蒙骗砂州人民。

"事实胜于雄辩,从《第一大马计划》到昨天阿德南自己提呈的《第11大马计划》的数据证明,国阵过去边缘化砂州,今后还是会继续的边缘化砂州。 无论阿德南的话讲得多么好听,只要一天还是国阵执政马来西亚,边缘化和亏待砂州的政策还是会延续下去。"

张氏说,为了砂州人民的权益,砂国阵必须退出国阵。 目前是最佳的时机,因为砂国阵的国会议员人数是25位,若退出国阵,国阵将无法在国会掌握超过50%的人数。 更何况,目前也是巫统最脆弱的时刻。 只要阿德南一声令下砂国阵退出国阵,立刻就换政府了,也可以立刻终结国阵政府剥削和亏待砂州52年的政策。

张健仁呼吁阿德南,身为砂州首长,阿德南应好好把握这个时机,而不是把一份边缘化砂州的《第11大马计划》粉饰成对砂州有利的发展计划。

Is the Sarawak State Government’s Minor Rural Project (MRP) Fund turning into another of the 1MDB scandal?

Posted: 06 Aug 2015 10:24 PM PDT

7.8.2015
Is the Sarawak State Government's Minor Rural Project (MRP) Fund turning into another of the 1MDB scandal? This is the question that DAP was asking in the DUN Sarawak. DAP has never objected to more allocation to develop the rural area, but we object to the non-transparent nature of the allocation which open up opportunity for corruption.
Adenan's allegation of DAP rejecting the RM500 million for rural development is just an attempt to cover-up the State Government's non-transparency in the use of rural development fund, especially the so-called "Minor Rural Project Fund".
In November, 2014, the Sarawak DUN approved a sum of RM655.9 million of allocation for MRP fund for the year 2015.
It was only the 4th month of 2015, 2015, the State Government tabled for another additional RM500 million allocation for MRP Fund without giving any justification and detail on how the previous RM655.9 million was spent.
It is a norm that for any budgetary allocation, there must be specific mention of the projects concerned for which the fund was allocated. For example, for other items of allocation under the 2015 State Budget, details of the projects were all provided in the Budget:
the allocation of research fund for "Production Development from Sago Starch", a sum of RM130,000;
"Membina dan Menyiapkan Market/Pusat Penjaja Dua Tingkat di Daerah Julau", a sum of RM650,000;
Grant for "Perhentian Bas dan Terminal Bas" for Majlis Daerah Luar Bandar Sibu, a sum of RM150,000;
Menaiktaraf Perparitan di Kampung Rampangi, a sum of RM1,000,000.
If the Government can provide the details for projects as small a sum as RM150,000 in the Budget, why is the Government hiding and concealing the detail for the sum of RM500 million?
Together with the RM655.9 million previously approved for MRP, the additional RM500 million will make the total allocation for MRP for the year 2015 a sum of RM1,155.9 million, devoid of all details of the MRPs to be implemented.
I have raised the query that the Government is giving every one of the rural BN DUN area a MRP allocation of RM4 million each. To my query in DUN, there was no denial or answer by Adenan or his ministers.
There are about 60 DUN constituencies that can be considered "RURAL". Even if each were to be given the allocation of RM4 million, it only adds up to RM240 million. Where is the balance of RM915.9 million?
Adenan's statement is similar to Najib's statement saying that the RM2.6 billion in his personal account is NOT FOR HIS PERSONAL USE. But the people want transparency and answer.
If Adenan or his administration has nothing to hide, all the BN ADUNs and the Government must list out all the projects implemented with this RM1,155.9 million allocation.
Every year, hundreds of millions Ringgit have been allocated for rural development projects. In total, billions have been allocated for rural projects. Yet, there are still so many kampongs and longhouses without water and electricity, many also not accessible by cars.
If there were no corruption or leakages in the use of the rural development fund, no kampong in Sarawak would be without water or electricity by now.
Therefore, the problem does not lie with having insufficient fund allocation for MRPs but kickbacks on award of MRPs and the leakages. As a result, the rural people continued to suffer despite billions have been allocated.
The State Government must come clean on the use of MRP funds and provide the people answers to the following questions:
1. All details of the projects done with the RM4-million MRP Fund allocated to each of the BN ADUNs;
2. Full details of the projects for the balance RM915.9 million, into whose accounts were these money paid.
It is only through stringent public scrutiny and transparency that we can ensure that every Ringgit allocated is well spent and that the rural people will benefit fully from the allocation.

“小型乡村发展金”是否将成为砂州版本的“1马发展公司丑闻”

Posted: 06 Aug 2015 07:00 PM PDT

古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁质问阿德南,"小型乡村发展金"是否将成为砂州版本的"1马发展公司丑闻"。
有关张健仁于今年4月的州议会针对州政府寻求议会额外多拨5亿令吉"小型乡村发展金"提出质疑,阿德南事后将它污蔑为行动党反对政府发展乡村。 对于阿德南的污蔑,张健仁今日再次做出回应。

张健仁说,行动党从来没有反对发展乡村地方,行动党所反对的是不透明的行政和发展拨款,假借'发展乡村'的美名方便国阵领袖和朋党公司官商勾结,中饱私囊。

他指出,去年11月,砂州议会才在《2015年砂州财政预算案》中通过一笔6亿5590万令吉的"小型乡村发展金"供2015年。 今年4月开州议会时,砂州政府又在其附加法案中寻求议会通过额外一笔5亿令吉的"小型乡村发展金"。

"我们首要知道的是,2015年短短的头3个月,难道政府已花完原本财政预算案所通过的那笔6亿5590万令吉的'小型乡村发展金'? 如此巨大的一笔钱,到底州政府是怎样在如此短的时间内花完,而必须在4月的州议会,再寻求州议会通过另外第二笔5亿令吉的'小型乡村发展金'?"

张健仁指出,任何在财政预算案的拨款,都必须列出该拨款所进行的工程。 他举例,在2015年财政预算案中的一些拨款事项如下:

"研究生产sago淀粉"拨款 -- 13万令吉
"建Julau区的双层菜市场/小贩中心"拨款 -- 65万令吉
"诗巫乡村议会巴士占"拨款 -- 15万令吉
"提升甘榜Rampangi的沟渠" -- 100万令吉

他透露,至于在财政预算案和附加法案里所提到的"小型乡村发展金",虽然涉及的数目是上亿令吉,但却完全没有有关什么工程的资料。

"既然在财政预算案和附加法案,涉及十几万令吉工程的拨款都必须列明有关工程的资料,那为何涉及十几亿令吉的拨款却如此的保密,不敢透露涉及的工程? 这岂不是欲盖儞章,此地无银三百两?"

张健仁说,去年所通过的《2015年财政预算案》中的"小型乡村发展金"和今年4月《2015年附加法案》中的"小型乡村发展金"加起来,今年的"小型乡村发展金"总数是11亿5590万令吉。 州议会完全无法知道,这笔钱用在那里,如何用,及还给谁。

张氏透露,他在4月的州议会提出质问,政府拨给国阵的每一位州议员400万令吉的"小型乡村发展金"。 对此,阿德南和他的部长们都没有否认。

"但是,问题是,就算每位乡村的州议席都分得400万令吉,全砂州只有月60个乡村议席, 总数也只不过是2亿4000万令吉。 还有剩余的9亿1590万令吉又跑去那里?"

张氏说,如果国阵没有什么好隐瞒的话,它应该列出这11亿5590万令吉所用在的工程。
他也说,每年砂州政府都有上亿的拨款发展乡区,但是为何许多乡村的长屋或甘榜却还是没有水电,甚至有一些还不能通车。

他指出,乡村甘榜仍旧落后,主要原因不是因为拨款不足,而是贪污和浪费,使到大部分的拨款流失,没有真正用在发展乡村的工程上。  如果过去的乡村拨款有真正的用在发展乡村,那今天不应该还会有甘榜或长屋没有水电的了。

张健仁说,阿德南如果要摆脱过去砂州政府那种黑箱作业,中饱私囊的形象,那他必须针对这项"小型乡村发展金"拨款给人民交代以下问题:

1. 国阵每个选区的400万令吉的"小型乡村发展金"用在那里了?
2. 除了这2亿4000万令吉之外,剩余的9亿1590万令吉去了那里,进了谁的户口?

张健仁:助调查工作 MJC买地资料呈反贪会

Posted: 12 Aug 2015 08:41 PM PDT

转载自《诗华日报》
砂行动党主席张健仁国州议员(中)在马来西亚反贪污委员会砂州总部发言﹐左为砂行动党浮罗岸区州议员黄庆伟、右则为砂行动党朋岭区州议员杨薇讳。
(本报古晋12日讯)砂行动党主席张健仁国州议员今日到访马来西亚反贪污委员会砂州总部﹐以透过为当局提供额外资料的途径﹐让当局能够就石角新市镇对面之267英亩州政府土地买卖事件展开多角度的调查工作。
张健仁今早于马来西亚反贪污委员会砂州总部发言时说﹐其今日到访马来西亚反污委员会砂州总部﹐乃旨在为当局提供额外的资料。他披露﹐根据其所获得的资料﹐该片面积达267英亩的州政府土地﹐原本已经连同石角新市镇所处于的地段一起批给了一家官联公司。
"该家官联公司的主要持有人为伊斯兰福利理事会及砂基金局等单位﹐所以相关土地的发展工作﹐原来能够为有关单位带来更好的收入﹐并有利相关单位惠及人民及学子。"
最终转让私人公司
他感到不解的是﹐为何该片原来已经批给相关官联公司的州政府土地﹐最终却又另外转让给一家私人公司。
"另外﹐在有关的土地转让课题上﹐当局是否有依照法律行事﹐并办好所有相关的手续﹖"
他还置疑说﹐砂州政府后来以低廉价格将州政府土地转让给私人公司﹐复要求有关公司为某协会兴建大厦一事﹐又是否涉及了利益冲突﹖
他表示﹐基于相关理由﹐其决定在今日走访马来西亚反污委员会砂州总部﹐以提交有关的额外资料﹐进而方便当局展开多角度的调查工作。

张健仁:须有实际行动 口头承诺做不得准

Posted: 12 Aug 2015 08:36 PM PDT

转载自《诗华日报》
(本报古晋12日讯)砂行动党主席张健仁国州议员指出﹐联邦政府下放权限予砂州政府一事必须要依法行事﹐而在该方面﹐砂州政府所要进行的第一步﹐就是让州议员们在8月17日召开的砂州立法会议上就其所提呈的相关动议进行辩论及议决﹐以向联邦政府明确表明﹐砂州政府希望联邦政府能够在教育﹑医药﹑内安及税务等4个主要领域﹐将权限完整下放给砂州政府。
张健仁是在今早于反贪污委员会砂州总部发言时﹐针对我国首相宣布将下放权限予砂州政府的课题﹐向媒体如是表示。
首相没详细说明
他说﹐我国首相拿督斯里纳吉虽然说会下放权限予砂州政府﹐但是却未给予相关的详细说明。
他认为﹐在现阶段﹐相关的宣布就只如同是一项口头服务。
"我会说﹐口头承诺做不得准﹐如果只是公布的话﹐那也不代表什么。唯有透过实际的行动﹑并且依法行事﹐才能做准。"
他续称﹐其实早在2﹑3个星期前﹐他就已经向砂州议会提呈2项动议通知书﹐以要求在即将于下周一召开的砂州立法会议上提呈有关动议。
已向州会呈动议
"其中就有一项动议﹐是与联邦政府下放权限予砂州政府的课题息息相关的。"
他披露﹐有关动议将要求砂州政府在联邦宪法第9项相关条文下进行探讨﹐以重新与联邦政府进行有关的协商。
"该项动议的内容﹐也要求联邦政府在教育﹑医药﹑内安及税务等4个主要领域﹐将权限完整下放给砂州政府。"
他还披露﹐所谓的税务选权限﹐就包括将20%的石油开采税归还给砂州﹑50%的砂州税收交给砂州政府等事项﹐以利砂州政府进行其余3大领域的策划工作。
州政府须有诚意
他更指出﹐在争取联邦政府将权限下放给砂州方面﹐砂州政府必须就有关动议内容先行在州议会内通过一项议决。
"所以我要求砂州政府就我的动议进行辩论﹑以示诚意﹐并积极争取砂州在该4大领域的自主权。我希望砂州政府能够在争取砂州权限的课题上展示诚意﹐而不是只是嘴巴上说说而已。"
他重申﹐唯有在砂州议会中通过相关的议决﹐砂州政府才有特定的事项可以与联邦政府进行有关的协商。
"另外﹐我们的下一步﹐就是在国会中行事。我也将提呈一项动议﹐以就联邦宪法进行修改。"
他表示﹐如果缺少相关步骤的话﹐那将权限下放给砂州的说法﹐将只会是一项口头服务。
争4领域自主权
他不忘重申﹐在争取联邦政府将权限下放给砂州的课题上﹐砂州要做的第一步﹐就是在砂州议会内就有关动议做出议决﹐以明确说明砂州要求在该4个领域取得自主权。
"我已经提交相关的动议﹐我欢迎他们(砂国阵)采纳﹑修改﹐甚至'骑劫'我的动议。我只希望他们在8月17日针对有关动议进行辩论。"
他还认为说﹐在有关事项上﹐砂州议员必须暂时将自己的政见差异放在一旁﹐并专著在动议的辩论事项上。

Sarawak DAP wants MACC to probe discounted state land sale to private company linked to Taib Mahmud

KUCHING, Aug 12 — Claiming to have fresh evidence in hand, Sarawak DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen today urged national graftbusters to investigate a questionable state land sale to Standard Parade Development Sdn Bhd, a private company linked to Governor Tun Abdul Taib Mahmud for what he alleged to be a sale at a massive discount.
Chong said he had documents to prove the improper sale of a 108-hectare plot of prime land in the town of Batu Kawa near here that belonged to state-linked unit trust fund Permodalan ASSAR Sdn Bhd, whose shareholders are Lembaga Amanah Kebajikan Masjid Negeri Sarawak, Yayasan Sarawak, Sarawak Economic Development Corporation, Pelita Holdings Sdn Bhd and Sarawak Timber Industry Development Corporation.
"Beside the issue of impropriety of state land worth about RM500 million sold at a grossly discounted price of RM115 million, why was the land, belonging to a state-linked company alienated to a private company?" he told reporters at the state Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters here before submitting the papers.
The controversy began last year when the land was approved for alienation to Standard Parade Development at a price of RM115 million just before Abdul Taib stepped down as state chief minister on February 28.
Previously, the land in question had been alienated to ASSAR for a proposed Batu Kawa Township Development by the Lands and Surveys of Kuching Division in a letter dated June 8, 1996.
On March 8, 2014, 10 days after Tan Sri Adenan Satem took over from Abdul Taib, the land changed hands again through an agreement signed by State Secretary Tan Sri Morshidi Ghani on behalf of Sarawak while Standard Parade Development Sdn Bhd was represented by its general manager Barry Tan.
According to the agreement, Standard Parade Development would not be paying in cash, but would instead construct a building for the Association for the Wives of Ministers and Assistant Ministers (SABATI), to be named Bangunan Laila, after Abdul Taib's late wife in Kuching, and two orphanage homes in Mukah and Lawas, at total cost of about RM115 million.
On January 14 this year, Chong, who is also Bandar Kuching federal lawmaker, submitted a set of documents to MACC to start conducting investigation into the alienation of 267.15 acres of state land to Standard Parade Development, alleging improprieties in the alienation of the land.
Today, Chong said there could be a conflict of interest in the alienation of the state land to Standard Parade Development in exchange for the construction of the building for SABATI and two orphanage homes.
"If the alienation was approved by members of the State Cabinet, then there is conflict of interest because they were approving something for their wives," said the Kota Sentosa assemblyman.

Cabinet Reshuffle to Save Najib Razak?

Posted: 28 Jul 2015 04:33 AM PDT

How convenient. In about six hours the deputy Prime Minister, Attorney-General and head of special branch, the elite police force, have been changed.

Overnight, we woke up to news about temporary freeze of the crucial Public Accounts Committee (PAC) investigations into the 1Malaysia Development Berhad scandal as its chairman, Nur Jazlan Mohamed, has stepped down to take up his appointment as deputy home minister.

Three others from PAC have also been appointed to the cabinet, halting the probe until October when Parliament can elect the next chairman of PAC and the other three members.

Prior to these appointments, the PAC had fixed August 4th and 5th to question former 1MDB CEO Shahrul Ibrahim Halmi and current CEO Arul Kanda Kandasamy.

This is outrageous.

Prime Minister Najib Razak has gone for the kill to save his skin as the cabinet reshuffle boils down to one thing – the debt-ridden 1MDB.

He has acted swiftly to silence his critics including former deputy premier, Muhyiddin Yassin, who said that UMNO is losing out with the people because Najib refused to tell the truth, while the internet was filled with details implicating him in the financial heist.

In his haste to secure his position, Najib has also acted unconstitutionally to remove the Attorney-General Abdul GaniPatail. The fact that Gani Patail was unaware of his sacking creates a constitutional conundrum.

This is a violation of the fundamental principles of democracy and goes only to show the absolute abuse of power by the Prime Minister, who is securing his fort to ensure the outcome of the 1MDB investigations will be favorable to him.

Najib has been implicated in the 1MDB scandal from the very beginning. The Wall Street Journal reported that RM 2.6 billion from the finance-ministry owned development fund made its way into Najib's bank account.

He has not denied any allegation of wrongdoings exposed by whistleblower website, Sarawak Report and financial newspaper, The Edge.

Najib did not also heed the calls to go on leave until investigations into the sovereign fund scandal is completed. Instead, he cleverly moved people around to save his interest making it even clearer that he has something to hide.

Najib may think he has forced a political checkmate on his fierce critics, including Dr Mahathir Mohamad who has been calling for his resignation.

But this may backfire and end up working against him as the rakyat lose their faith on the Prime Minister, completely.

US 2015 TIP Report: Designed to Promote US Interests & A Major Dis-service to Anti-Trafficking Efforts

Posted: 27 Jul 2015 10:07 PM PDT

US TiP Report 2015 Malaysia Upgrade

The US TIP report elevating Malaysia to tier 2 is laughable to say the least. And it is obvious that the upgrade is motivated by business and trade interests and one that would allow Malaysia to sign on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA).

The upgrade comes amidst recent protest from human rights groups in Asia and the US, including ranking US Senators and Congressmen. And it comes as Malaysians realize the entrenched nature of trafficking in the country.

A Wall Street Journal report today noted the wide spread use of forced labor and employment of people who are trafficked, in plantations and construction sites in Malaysia.

The US upgrade assessment is weak as compared to the conclusions of the UN special rapporteur on Malaysia which noted:

1. “Criminalization of irregular migrants and the non-recognition of the status of asylum seekers and refugees "contribute to increasing the social vulnerability of migrants.”

2. Women and girls from South Asia are entering into brokered marriages with older men in Malaysia and subsequently being forced into domestic servitude and forced prostitution.

3. Cases of debt bondage, non-payment of salary, withholding of passports.

4. Trafficking of young foreign women and children for sexual exploitation.

The Malaysian government introduced a recent amendment to the Anti -Trafficking Act 2007 to allow for the employment of documented refuges and the setting up of a high level agency to manage anti-trafficking efforts.
Securing employment for people who are trafficked is important, smashing trafficking networks is significant. This is not happening.
And, we are yet to see how effective the implementation of this amended Act would be in combating trafficking.

One hint, however is the manner in which Malaysia dealt with the discovery of mass graves operated by traffickers.

The government concluded there were no criminal elements leading to the death of Rohingya refugees and Bangladeshi migrant workers whose bodies were exhumed out of mass graves.

These efforts cannot be construed as significant by any stretch of our imagination.

All we have seen is a damning news report in a local newspaper end of last month, which said nation's security personnel and law officers at Malaysian borders are corrupt.

The government linked New Straits Times claimed that evidence of this systemic corruption is found in a "controversial report compiled by the Special Branch", which is "the result of 10 years of covert, deep-cover surveillance and intelligence gathering by the Special Branch at the nation's border checkpoints, and at different enforcement agencies throughout the country".

The broadsheet daily also stated that the personnel of the enforcement agencies "were not only on the take, but many were on the payroll of syndicates dealing with drugs, weapons and even human smuggling”.

Before this report was out, we were shocked by headlines plastered on every major media organization in the world that led with stories about mass graves and trafficking camps in Padang Besar, a small town in Malaysia’s northern region.

Journalist wrote even more explosive reports, narrating eye-witness accounts of local villagers who said they had seen malnourished and diseased Rohingya refugees on the streets begging for food.

They had attended to these people and informed the police officers, who then took them away.

And yet the police say they knew nothing about the camps run by the traffickers until May this year, where 106 remains have been found so far.

The US TIP report has done a huge disservice in fighting trafficking in Malaysia and world over.

One can only conclude that the TIP 2015 report was designed to promote US trade and geo-political interests. And in my view the report best serves as a toilet paper as from now on no government will take the TIP report seriously.
