MPK Akan Terus Serbu Rumah Urut Tanpa Beri Notis
 
KLANG, 19 SEPT : Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MPK) akan membuat serbuan tanpa notis pemberitahuan terhadap premis rumah urut yang melanggar peraturan.

Ahli Majlis MPK, Azmizam Zaman Huri berkata, perkara ini diputuskan dalam Mesyuarat Penuh MPK memandangkan kebanyakkan premis yang beroperasi kini gagal mengikut syarat yang ditetapkan oleh Jabatan Perlesenan.
Sebagai contoh katanya, terdapat premis yang memohon lesen perniagaan refleksologi tetapi menjalankan kegiatan urut badan.

Sebelum ini katanya, notis akan dihantar dan premis tersebut diberikan tempoh 14 hari untuk menurunkan papan tanda dan menutup operasi mereka. Namun notis tersebut tidak diendahkan.
"MPK menghantar notis kedua juga tidak diendahkan. Maka, mulai hari ini MPK akan terus lakukan operasi tanpa beri notis.

Antara kesalahan yang dilakukakan adalah papan tanda besar yang tidak mempunyai lesen iklan dan tidak ada lesen perniagaan," katanya apabila ditemui dalam operasi hari ini Taman Botani, Bukit Tinggi.
MPK menurunkan papan tanda premis refleksologi yang tidak mengikut spesifikasi yang dtetapkan pihak PBT.

Operasi ini juga melibatkan premis tidak berlesen yang masih beroperasi sedangkan sebelum ini mereka telah diberikan surat supaya menghentikan perniagaan.
Dalam operasi hari ini, MPK menyita peralatan premis Winter Refleksologi yang sebelum ini pernah diserbu sebanyak lima kali.

Jelas Azmiam, kerajaan negeri sedang mengkaji undang-undang yang sesuai bagi membendung kegiatan haram ini.
"SUK sedang mengkaji undang-undang dan mengambil tidakan terhadap tuan punya premis yang menyewakan kedai mereka kepada pengusaha rumah urut.

Sekiranya mereka tidak mahu menghentikan operasi, premis berkenaan akan dirampas," ujarnya.
Tegas beliau, pihak MPK tidak pernah meluluskan mana-mana lesen rumah urut sejak tahun 2008 dan pihaknya masih lagi memantau beberapa premis di kawasan Bukit Tinggi, Meru dan Bayu Perdana yang beroperasi secara tidak sah sebelum tindakan tegas bakal diambil.

Jambatan Baru Bagi Bagan Teochew
 




 
SHAH ALAM 19 SEPT : Kerajaan Negeri hari ini meluluskan peruntukan khas RM 80,000 bagi membina semula jambatan di Pulau Ketam yang musnah dalam satu kejadian pada Sabtu lalu.
Pengumuman itu dibuat Exco Negeri yang juga Adun Selat Kelang, Dr Halimah Ali dalam satu sidang media selepas menghadiri Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri sebentar tadi.

Jambatan tersebut dikatakan musnah akibat dilanggar sebuah bot yang dibawa arus deras.
Keadaan itu menjejaskan urusan seharian penduduk termasuk para pelajar.
"Hasil Kajian mendorong kita untuk mengeluarkan dana bagi membina jambatan sementara bagi menghubungkan penduduk Bagan Teochew dengan tempat terputus hubungan.
"Kerajaan Negeri telah mengeluarkan arahan melalui Setiausaha Kerajaan (Negeri) untuk mengarahkan Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MPK) membina jambatan itu.
"Kita jangkakan ia akan siap dalam masa sebulan," jelasnya.

Dalam pada itu, beliau berkata akan meminta Kerajaan Pusat bersama-sama membantu penduduk yang terjejas.
"Diharap jika adanya bantuan daripada Kerajaan Pusat, satu jambatan kekal dapat dibina untuk penduduk," katanya.

Media Statement by Ngeh Koo Ham on his tweet‏

Posted: 20 Sep 2012 07:25 AM PDT


Media Statement


I retract and apologise to any Muslim who is offended by my tweet as it was never intended to be so.

It was 1.43 am 17th September 2012, after seeing world news on CNN, BBC and Al Ajazeera showing violent protests in various parts of the world where lives were lost, many injured properties gutted and unrest ensued in response to the video produced by Sam Bacile, and after reading the news in Malaysiakini.com that YB Khairy Jamaluddin has planned to hold massive protest coming Friday (21st Sept 2012) with regard to the same matter that I tweeted the following words

'Khairy wants muslim protest against Same Bacile. For Islam or for his political gains? Are muslims wasting to much time and energy on this?'

In the context of the violent protests round the world and the many demonstrations to be held that I posed the question 'Are muslims wasting too much time and energy on this? I was wondering if too much time and energy have been spent in response to the 13.5 minutes video produced by a mad man in the name of Sam Bacile. I wanted our society to think deeper with regard to the way we response to any provocation or issue that confronts us. I have been taught and have always emphasized to the young never to react but always to respond.

I want to make it very clear my following stands:-

1. I strongly condemn the video and its producer for belittling the faith/religion of another person and reiterate support for the stand that has been taken by DAP on this issue which is contained in the media statement issued by my party's Secretary General on 16/9/2012.

2. I totally support the rights of a person to hold peaceful demonstrations. In my 23 years of active political involvement, I have organized scores of demonstration in Perak. I was arrested by the police in Bersih 2.0 and was there at Bersih 3.0.

The abovesaid tweet has now been twisted by UMNO/BN to say I belittle Islam. This is a total lie. However, having explain the context in which my question was posed, any muslim who is still offended by the question I posed, I apologise as that was never intended.

I feel comforted that a leading Muslim cleric Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, head of international union of Muslim Scholars, Encik Fathul Bari Mat Jahaya, the Executive Committee Chairman of Malaysia Young Ulama Assembly and Encik Musa Awang, the President of the Syarie lawyers of Malaysia have also come forward to call for restraint in the response to this video issue.

Insiden persenda Raja : Dr Mariah saman

Posted: 19 Sep 2012 08:18 PM PDT

KUALA LUMPUR: Timbalan Ketua Dewan Muslimat PAS Pusat, Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud hari ini menyaman seorang pemegang akaun laman sosial Facebook kerana mengaitkan beliau dengan insiden mempersenda dan mengejek Raja-raja Melayu, April lalu.

Saman terhadap seorang doktor perubatan itu difailkan pagi tadi di Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur melalui firma guaman Tetuan Abdul Aziz dan Yazmin.

Bercakap kepada pemberita, Siti Mariah yang juga Ahli Parlimen Kota Raja berkata, saman itu dibuat kerana tulisan itu menjatuhkan maruah beliau sebagai ahli Parlimen.

"Saya mengambil tindakan undang-undang terhadap individu ini kerana tulisan itu menuduh saya sebagai biadab di majlis pertabalan," katanya yang ditemani peguam Abdul Aziz Hamzah.

Doktor tersebut dalam tulisannya di facebook mendakwa Siti Mariah mempersenda dan mengejek Raja-raja Melayu sewaktu istiadat pertabalan Yang di-Pertuan Agong ke-14, Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah di Istana Negara.

Dakwaan itu turut mengaitkan Timbalan Presiden PKR, Azmin Ali dan Naib Presidennya, Tian Chua tetapi kedua-dua mereka telah menafikan dakwaan mereka mempersenda dan mengejek Raja Melayu pada majlis pertabalan itu.

Double Standards And Selective Prosecution By BN Again (en/cn)

Posted: 19 Sep 2012 07:23 PM PDT

Press Statement by DAP Secretary-General and MP for Bagan Lim Guan Eng in Kuala Lumpur on 19.9.2012.

Double Standards And Selective Prosecution By BN Again As Many Companies That Have Committed More Serious Financial Irregularities Are Not Given The Same Attention As That Given To Suaram And Clearly An Act Of Political Revenge To Distract Attention From The Alleged Scorpene and National Feedlot Corporation or Cows And Condos Scandals.

The recent onslaught against Suaram continued when Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri said that human rights advocacy group Suaram would soon face prosecution for its "confusing" and "misleading financial accounts". According to press reports, the Companies Commission of Malaysia (CCM) is supposed to have made a recommendation yesterday to the Attorney-General's office to press charges against Suara Inisiatif Sdn Bhd, a company linked to Suaram, for unexplained financial irregularities.

This is a clear case of double standards and selective prosecution by BN again as many companies that have committed more serious financial irregularities are not given the same attention as that given to suaram and clearly an act of political revenge to distract attention from the alleged Scorpene and National Feedlot Corporation or Cows and Condos scandals.

Why is a privately-funded human rights NGO being selectively victimised over supposed financial irregularities, when there are a multitude of high-profile and scandalous cases of alleged corruption and mismanagement of public funds such as the RM500 million "commission" for the purchase of two Scorpene submarines and the RM250 million National Feedlot Corporation scandal? No Minister ever talked of investigating the accounts of the companies involved in the two alleged scandals.

Besides the double-standards and obvious duplicity, this selective persecution against Suaram once again reveals the BN government's penchant for punishing the whistle-blower. Just as how PKR Election Strategy Director Rafizi Ramli was arrested for revealing bank account details that led to the charges against NFC Chairman Dato' Seri Mohamed Salleh Ismail, Suaram appears to have been victimised for its role in publicly highlighting and assisting in the Scorpene corruption trial in France.

After all,Suaram's accounts have been audited and submitted routinely every year. Even Suaram leaders have publicly declared that they have nothing to hide. As Suaram was formed in 1989, why take action only now but not for the previous 23 years? Is it an act of vengeance over Suaram recent highlighting of the acquisition Scorpene submarine scandal that goes all the way to the top leadership of BN?

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2012年9月19日在吉隆坡发表声明:

国阵实行双重标准及选择性检举,他们如此"关注"大马人民之声的财务违规问题,却没有对付其它犯下更严重财务违规的公司,这很明显是一项政治报复行动,也是为了转移全国对Scorpene潜水艇及公寓养牛丑闻的视线焦点。

当局对大马人民之声的检举行动将会持续,当国内贸易、合作社及消费事务部长拿督斯里依斯迈尔说,大马人民之声将因其"混乱"及"误导性的账目"而被提控。

根据媒体报道,大马公司注册局昨天本来应该向总检察署建议,将向Suara Inisiatif Sdn Bhd(与大马人民之声有关的公司)提出检举诉讼,因为该公司出现财务违规问题。

很明显地,这是双重标准及国阵的选择性检举,他们如此"关注"大马人民之声的财务违规问题,却没有对付其它犯下更严重财务违规的公司,这很明显是一项政治报复行动,也是为了转移全国对Scorpene潜水艇及公寓养牛丑闻的视线焦点。

为什么私人资金资助的人权非政府组织,会因为财务违规而面对选择性迫害?而那些涉及公款遭贪污、滥用的丑闻却不了了之,如:购买两艘Scorpene潜水艇的5亿令吉佣金、2亿5000令吉的公寓养牛丑闻?甚至没有任何部长提及要调查这些公司的账目。

除了双重标准及明显的不诚实,当局对于大马人民之声的选择性迫害再一次揭露国阵政府倾向惩罚吹哨人。正如公正党选举策略主任拉菲兹在揭露国家养牛中心的银行账目后被逮捕,这宗丑闻最终导致该中心主席拿督斯里莫哈末沙列被提控。这一次大马人民之声被迫害,看来是因为他们高调协助法国的潜水艇贪污案审讯。

再说,大马人民之声的账户每年都被稽查及呈交。就连该组织领导已经公开宣示他们没有隐瞒任何事情。大马人民之声成立自1989年,为什么过了23年,现在才对付他们?这难道不是为了报复大马人民之声高调揭发Scorpene潜水艇采购丑闻,已经直逼国阵的高层领导?

Building Human Talent And Reversing The Brain Drain Is Critical To Arresting The Decline In Malaysia’s Global Competitiveness . (en/cn)

Posted: 19 Sep 2012 07:28 PM PDT

Some newspapers highlighted Talent Corporations's success in getting 30% of 130 Malaysian specialist doctors in Taiwan to consider and think about coming home in 3 years. How can Talent Corporation regard as a success when not a single specialist doctor in Taiwan has confirmed 100% their return home immediately but are only willing to consider and think about coming home in 3 years time?

Clearly Malaysia's failure in reversing the brain drain and getting them to come home plays a huge part in Malaysia's drop in the Global Competitiveness Index 2012-2013 to 25th spot from 21st last year. Malaysia needs to focus on the 3 critical success factors of upgrading technological readiness especially in internet connectivity, improving public safety by containing crime escalation and building human capital formation to arrest the decline in Malaysia's global competitiveness.

This decline is not simply a failure of the Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak's Economic Transformation Programme(ETP) but also a failure to recognise that clinging on to failed policies will not provide the solutions to our problems. As Albert Einstein said, "Using old solutions, especially failed ones, to solve new problems is insane". The time has come to discard failed policies of crony capitalism, Approved Permits for vehicles and subsidies for profit-making companies.

In Jakarta, the City Mayor has just announced free wifi would be available on main roads and highways. As digital intelligence is of critical importance in the internet connected world, providing free wifi in public places would provide a much needed boost. There is no reason why free wifi in public places can not be done throughout Malaysia, if it can be implemented in Penang Or is Malaysia going to be behind not just Jakarta but also Indonesia eventually?

Regarding Malaysia's technological readiness, the report notes three areas that require improvement, namely: international internet bandwidth in kilobits per second per user (ranked 83rd), broadband internet subscriptions per 100 population (68th) and mobile broadband subscriptions per 100 population (64th). This contributes to the low level of technological readiness despite the country's focus on promoting the use of ICT.

The common perception of an increase in crime negatively impacted Malaysia’s ranking with a drop in the rankings related to crime such as the business cost of crime and violence; organised crime; and reliability of police services. Clearly the drop in crime index poses many questions about the reliability in the compilation of statistics and that the final determinant of public safety is not determined by statistics but ultimately whether the people feel safe.

Even the Ministry of International Trade and Industry has admitted that negative perceptions about crime has had an adverse impact on investors and international community alike as do not feel safe. The time has come for both the Home Ministry and the police to stop being in denial but focus solely on fighting crime instead of allowing the police to be used as a tool to serve the political interests of BN against the legitimate opposition PR in Malaysia.

Unless Malaysia succeeds in stopping the ruinous exchange of human talent with unskilled foreign workers, Malaysia's hopes to escape the middle-income trap and join the ranks of high-income economies will remain a pipe dream. Perhaps Malaysia should not just learn from Jakarta, but also China which attracts back its human talent from USA by paying them comparable salary rates, provide housing accomodation and most important of all equal opportunities of career advancement.

With 2 million Malaysian leaving the country since 1957, Talent Corp would not only fail to attract them back but would see more Malaysians leaving unless more incentives can be given. There must be transparency such as open competitive tenders and public declaration of assets that avoid conflict of interest.

Unless the 3 critical success factors are dealt with, especially retaining and attracting new human talent, Malaysia's hopes of becoming a high-income developed economy by 2020 will remain a pipe-dream that will be recycled every election year.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2012年9月18日在吉隆坡发表声明:

马来西亚的全球竞争力下滑,不只是因为首相经济转型计划的失败,也是科技准备、打击罪案及人力资源栽培政策的失败。

一些报章突出人才机构成功让台湾130名专科医生中的30%人才慎重计划3年内回国。人才机构怎么能说这是一项"成果"因为事实上没有一名大马籍台湾专科医生100%确定他们将会马上回国,而只是愿意考虑及计划3年内回流。

很明显地,马来西亚在招揽人才回流方面已经失败,这也是为什么马来西来在2012年-2013年的全球竞争力指数从去年第21位,下滑至第25位。马来西亚需要注重三个成功因素,提升科技就绪度特别是网络的连接、改善治安降低罪案、栽培人力资本,以解决马来西亚日趋退步的全球竞争力。

这项退步不只是首相拿督斯里纳吉的经济转型计划的失败,也是因为当局者看不到坚守失败的政策无法从根本上解决我们的问题。爱因斯坦说,"不断地延用旧方法、特别是失败的方法来解决新问题是疯狂的。" 是时候放弃朋党资本主义的失败政策、汽车入口准证、赚钱公司的津贴。

雅加达市长最近宣布他们将在主要公路及高速公路提供免费无线上网。数码智慧的网络通讯时代是非常重要的,在公共场所提供免费无线上网非常受落。如果槟州做得到,我们不明白为何政府不能全马各地公共场所提供免费无线上网?还是马来西亚不只会落后雅加达,甚至是印尼?

有关马来西亚的科技就绪度,报告中指出三个需要改善之处:国际宽频每个用户、每秒千位元排名第83;每百名人口的固定宽频订户率排名第68,以及流通宽频网络订户排名第64名。尽管我们一直在极力推广科技资讯工艺,这些都是科技就绪率低的原因。

我国的罪案率一直被公认为有增无减,在报告中,与商业、暴力、组织性及警方可靠性有关的罪案排位下降。很明显地,罪案指数下滑不禁让人怀疑,有关数据统计是否可靠?毕竟公众安全问题不是由数据决定,最终是人民是否觉得有安全感。

就连国际贸易及工业部都承认,罪案率的负面印象让投资者及外国人士觉得不安全。内政部长及警方不应该再否认,而应该专注于打击罪案,而不是让警方沦为国阵政治利益服务的工具,用来对付合法在野民联。

White Paper On Cheap Land Sales Of At Least 4,000 Acres By The Previous BN Government Will Be Issued Based On The Probe By A Special EXCO Committee Headed By Chow Kon Yeow. (en/cn)

Posted: 19 Sep 2012 07:26 PM PDT

The Penang State EXCO at its meeting on 12.9.2012 has agreed to issue a White Paper on cheap land sales of at least 4,000 acres by the previous BN government based on the probe by a special EXCO Committee headed by Penang State EXCO member for Local Government and Traffic Management Chow Kon Yeow.

The terms of reference decided by the State EXCO for the probe on cheap land sales are as follows:-

1. Identify cheap land sales conducted without open tender, price sold and to whom it was sold;

2. Analyse the sale process as well as whether the land sold was developed according to the original purpose of sale'

3. List out the weaknesses and the financial opportunity losses forgone incurred by the state government as a result of the cheap land sales as well as recommend measures to ensure that such wrongful practices do not recur.

Cheap land sales or even land given for free by BN government came into focus when BN alleged that the sale of 1.1 acre piece of land in Taman Manggis for a private hospital project to promote medical tourism in Penang, was sold below market value even though it was conducted by open competitive tender. The highest bid offered was accepted at RM 232 per square feet which was higher than the value given by Jabatan Perkhidmatan Harta dan Penilaian, under the Finance Ministry.

Not just BN but Gerakan has lost all honour and credibility when BN Penang Chairman Teng Chang Yeow can not prove his claims that four of my EXCO members, my political secretary and myself had personal interest in the hospital project. Unlike the over 4,000 acres sold by the previous BN state government, the present state government only sold over 100 acres of state land to raise funds to build 18,000 units of affordable housing.

Can BN Explain Why PR Land Sales Of Over 100 Acres Can Raise RM 1.1 Billion Whereas BN Cheap Land Sales Of 4,000 Acres Is Only Half Of RM 1.1 Billion?

When limited land sales by PR state government under open competitive tender can being questioned, BN's cheap land sales of over 4,000 acres must be fully answered. Can BN explain why PR land sales of over 100 acres can raise RM 1.1 billion whereas BN cheap land sales of 4,000 acres is half of RM 1.1 billion? Chow Kon Yeow would look into the more than 4,000 acres of state land or identify even more land that were sold cheaply or without open competitive tender such as:-

a) In the Tanjong Tokong Reclamation, under Agreements dated 1990 & 1999, the developer was given the right to reclaim and develop 980 acres of land off Tanjong Tokong at the price of RM 1 per square foot!(RM 42.7 million)

b) 750 acres of land in Batu Kawan was sold in 2004 at between RM3.05 to RM 4 per square feet.(RM 112,058,100)

c) As for the Jelutong Expressway, under Agreements dated 1997, 2002 & 2003, the developer was given the right to reclaim 325 acres of land in exchange for constructing the Jelutong Expressway at an estimated cost of RM300 million and cash payment of RM25.4 million. In other words, the total cost is RM325.4 million for 325 acres or the cost of reclaimed land at Jelutong Expressway is RM 1 million per acre or over RM 20 per square feet. What's more the developer can pay RM 25.4 million over 10 years from 2005 up to 2015 – surely a record for length of payment period.

d) 80 acres of prime land in Pulau Jerejak was sold to Urban Development Authority(UDA) without open tender on 15 January 2001 for a lease period of 60 years at only RM 3.72 per square feet.(RM12.9 million)

e) 1,600 acres of reclaimed land off Butterworth was given to Rayston Consortium(Butterworth) Sdn Bhd or Rayston for free. Rayston only had to pay RM 50 million for relocation of squatters and build a highway which they are recovering the cost through toll collections.

f) 18.7 acres land in Midlands Court and over 4 acres in Prangin Mall was sold by tender but not to the highest bidder. Instead for both sites, the 2nd highest bidder was selected.

g) 500 acres of reclaimed land awarded without open tender for the now aborted Penang Outer Ring Road(PORR) project. LIM GUAN ENG

槟州首席部长林冠英于2012年9月18日在乔治市光大发表声明:

州政府将依据曹观友为首的特别行政议员委员会,针对前朝国阵政府廉价出售4000英亩的土地一事,发表一份白皮书。

槟州行政议会于2012年9月12日同意,将依据地方政府及交通管理委员会主席曹观友为首的特别行政议员委员会,针对前朝国阵政府廉价出售4000英亩土地一事,发表一份白皮书。

州行政议员所决定的廉价售地的调查委员会调查范围为:

1. 确认没有公开招标的廉价售地买卖,出售价格以及谁是买家;

2. 分析买卖过程,以及有关土地是否已经根据出售条件进行发展;

3. 列出廉价售地买卖为州政府造成的后果、财务机会损失,同时,提出建议不再让这种错误的做法再发生。

国阵政府廉价售地、甚至免费赠地最近成为焦点,他们首先指民联州政府通过公开招标,以低于市场价,出售山竹园1.1英亩地段来发展槟州医疗旅游。最高价得标者出价每平方尺232令吉,比财政部属下的资产评估局所估的市价还高。

当国阵主席邓章耀无法证明槟州四名行政议员、我的政治秘书以及我本身,在有关私人医院计划涉及私人利益,不只是国阵,就连民政党已经名誉扫地。不像前朝国阵州政府的4000英亩土地,现任州政府是出售100英亩州土地是为了筹集款项,兴建1万8000 个可负担房屋。

国阵能不能解释,为什么民联仅出售100英亩土地却可以筹措11亿令吉,而国阵廉价出售4000英亩土地,却只收到11亿令吉的一半?

既然民联政府通过公开招标,出售有限的土地被质疑,那么国阵必须交待廉价出售4000英亩土地一事。国阵能不能解释,为什么民联仅出售100英亩土地却可以筹措11亿令吉,而国阵廉价出售4000英亩土地,却只收到11亿令吉的一半?曹观友会调查上述廉价出售或未经公开招价售出的4000英亩甚至更多的州政府土地,例如:

a) 丹绒道光填海地在1990及1999年的合约中,前朝政府让发展商以每平方尺1令吉的价格,在丹绒道光进行填海发展980英亩的土地。

b) 在2004年,峇都加湾750英亩以每平方尺3.05至4令吉的价格出售。

c) 日落洞高速公路在1997年、2002年及2003年的合同中,前朝政府让发展商以2540万令吉及一条价值3亿令吉的日落洞高速公路,进行填海发展 325.4英亩的土地。换句话说,日落洞高速公路的325英亩地段总值3亿2540万令吉,或 1英亩100万令吉,或每平方尺20令吉。更何况,发展商可以用10年(2005年至2015年)偿还2540万令吉,这么长的偿还期,肯定破了偿还期限记录。

d) 木蔻山80英亩的土地于2001年1月15日在没有公开招标的情况下以每平方尺3令吉72仙,出售给城市区发展机构(UDA),租凭期为60年。

e) 免费赠送Rayston Consortium(北海)有限公司1600英亩的北海填海范围。Rayston 只需要缴付5千万令吉的填海费,以及承建一条大道的费用而已,而这些费用,也可以靠收过路费赚回的。

f) 为什么在Midlands Counrt 及柏兰宜广场地段的18.7英亩经过招标却不是最高价者得。而是把土地出售给第二高价的竞标者。

g) 在没有公开招标的情况下,将500英亩填海地合约颁给槟州外环公路计划。

Sale of Independent Power Producers Queried

Posted: 20 Sep 2012 02:57 AM PDT

PETALING JAYA: PKR today demanded an explanation on Putrajaya's alleged move to purchase two independent power producers (IPPs), Tanjung Energy Holdings Sdn Bhd and Mastika Lagenda Sdn Bhd, at a high price.

The two firms are owned by Tanjung Energy Holdings Sdn Bhd and Mastika Lagenda Sdn Bhd, owned by Ananda Krishnan and Genting Bhd respectively. Both are said to have connections with the government.

The party's communication director Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad said the deal had resulted in Ananda and Genting walking away with a profit of RM1.9 billion when it was paid RM8.5 billion for the Tanjong deal in March, and another RM2.55 billion for the 75% stake owned by Genting Sangyen in Mastika Lagenda last month.

The deal was made through 1Malaysia Development Bhd, a fund set up by Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak himself.

"Tanjong's power business contributed about 75% of the group's revenue and profits. One thus could say that it made up to RM6.6 billion of the takeover price by Ananda. Now, by flipping the shares to 1MDB, Ananda has made a profit of RM1.9 billion," Nik Nazmi told reporters here.

Tanjong PLC was taken private by Ananda in September 2010 for RM8.8 billion for the entire group at RM21.80 per share.

Meanwhile Genting had announced a projected net gain of about RM1.9 billion from selling their shares to 1MDB.

"This is highly generous, especially considering the profits made by Genting since the power plant became operational in 1995," he said.

More lopsided deals?

Mastika, on the other hand, has a shareholders fund of RM422 million, meaning the RM2.5 billion paid by 1MDB resulted in a price-book ratio of about 6 times, said  the Seri Setia assemblyman.

"This is above the average price-book ratios of power stocks in the region. In fact, it would actually be cheaper to build a brand new plant of the same size than to buy Genting's 17-year-old one".

Nik Nazmi said the valuation of the IPPs was highly dubious given first generation concessions for the IPPs will end in 2016 and 2017 and the government saying that a more competitive deal will replace the existing ones. The current contracts have been described as lopsided.

"Thus any generous valuation for the IPPs does not make sense unless, contrary to the Energy Commission's statement, there is to be a repeat of the lopsided IPP agreements of the past, at the expense of Petronas, Tenaga Nasional Bhd and the taxpayers."

Nik Nazmi also questioned why 1MDB had only chosen to purchase Genting's stake and not those belonging to the Selangor development board PKNS which owns 25% of Genting Sanyen, a move that could have benefited Selangor voters.

Rundingan Untuk Ambilalih Operasi Air Dalam Tempoh Tujuh Hari

Posted: 19 Sep 2012 02:00 AM PDT

SHAH ALAM, 19 SEPT : Kerajaan Negeri akan memulakan proses penstrukturan semula industri air Selangor dan mengambilalih operasi air terawat dalam tempoh tujuh hari.

Proses ini termasuk memulakan rundingan dengan syarikat konsensi seperti Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) untuk membeli balik saham di dalam syarikat tersebut.

Justeru itu, Kerajaan Pusat diberikan tempoh tujuh hari untuk mengemukan bantahan terhadap proses itu.

Sekiranya Kerajaan Pusat tidak membuat apa-apa bantahan, Kerajaan Negeri akan memulakan proses penstrukturan semula, kata Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Menurutnya, perkara tersebut telah dimaklumkan kepada kerajaan pusat menerusi surat rasmi kepada Menteri Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air dan Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin pada 14 Sept.

"Dalam surat ini, saya telah nyatakan kekecewaan kerajaan Selangor dengan sikap kerajaan Pusat yang tidak pernah menyokong dan membantu memulakan rundingan dengan syarikat-syarikat konsesi

Walaupun peruntukan itu jelas dinyatakan di bawah Akta Perkhidmatan Bekalan Air 2006 (WSIA).

"Saya juga menyatakan keengganan Menteri dan kementeriannya untuk memulakan rundingan menunjukkan Kerajaan Pusat memang sengaja mahu mengingkari tanggungjawab untuk memenuhi kepentingan awam dan obligasi sebagaimana dinyatakan di bawah Seksyen 191 (4) WSIA," kata Abdul Khalid.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang media selepas mempengerusi mesyuarat exco di sini hari ini.

Tambahnya, Kerajaan Negeri juga komited bahawa penstrukturan semula industri air secara menyeluruh boleh meningkatkan kecekapan perkhidmatan air pada tarif yang munasabah.

Kerajaan Perlu Nilai Semula Mahu Mansuh Kelas Peralihan

Posted: 19 Sep 2012 01:30 AM PDT

SHAH ALAM,19 SEPT : Kementerian Pendidikan didesak untuk membuat penilaian semula terhadap cadangan memansuhkan kelas peralihan di dalam sekolah menengah.

Exco Kanan Selangor Teresa Kok berkata kelas peralihan ini adalah untuk memastikan pelajar daripada sekolah rendah jenis kebangsaan dapat menyesuaikan diri apabila melangkah ke peringkat awal menengah.

Cadangan tersebut terkandung di dalam Pelan Pembangunan Pendidikan Kebangsaan 2013- 2025 yang dibentangkan Kementerian Pelajaran baru-baru ini.

Kementerian tersebut mencadangkan agar murid darjah empat di sekolah jenis Cina dan Tamil mempelajari silibus pelajaran yang sama dengan Sekolah Kebangsaan.

"Cadangan ini pastinya tidak rasional dan akan membebankan pelajar yang berumur 10 tahun untuk menguasai tiga jenis bahasa dengan baik dalam satu-satu masa," kata Teresa di dalam satu kenyataan media.

Ujar beliau lagi,masalah akan timbul untuk melaksanakan dasar ini kerana ianya akan memerlukan lebih banyak guru dan akan berlaku kekurangan waktu pelajaran di kelas.

"Ia tidak dapat diterima bahawa Kementerian Pelajaran terus selalu membuat perubahan dasar, dan lebih teruk lagi, polisi itu sering bertentangan antara satu sama lain," katanya.

Tambah Teresa, para guru dan pelajar akan terus dalam keadaan keliru dan ketidaktentuaan apabila perubahan mendadak dilakukan dalam sistem pendidikan negara.

"Kementerian Pelajaran digesa untuk memberikan tumpuan kepada isu keciciran pelajar yang tinggi di sekolah menengah rendah terutama di sekolah-sekolah yang Bahasa Melayu bukan sebagai bahasa penghantar utama," katanya.

MPK Akan Terus Serbu Rumah Urut Tanpa Beri Notis

Posted: 18 Sep 2012 02:00 AM PDT

KLANG, 19 SEPT : Majlis Perbandaran Klang (MPK) akan membuat serbuan tanpa notis pemberitahuan terhadap premis rumah urut yang melanggar peraturan.

Ahli Majlis MPK, Azmizam Zaman Huri berkata, perkara ini diputuskan dalam Mesyuarat Penuh MPK memandangkan kebanyakkan premis yang beroperasi kini gagal mengikut syarat yang ditetapkan oleh Jabatan Perlesenan.

Sebagai contoh katanya, terdapat premis yang memohon lesen perniagaan refleksologi tetapi menjalankan kegiatan urut badan.

Sebelum ini katanya, notis akan dihantar dan premis tersebut diberikan tempoh 14 hari untuk menurunkan papan tanda dan menutup operasi mereka. Namun notis tersebut tidak diendahkan.

"MPK menghantar notis kedua juga tidak diendahkan. Maka, mulai hari ini MPK akan terus lakukan operasi tanpa beri notis.

Antara kesalahan yang dilakukakan adalah papan tanda besar yang tidak mempunyai lesen iklan dan tidak ada lesen perniagaan," katanya apabila ditemui dalam operasi hari ini Taman Botani, Bukit Tinggi.

MPK menurunkan papan tanda premis refleksologi yang tidak mengikut spesifikasi yang dtetapkan pihak PBT.

Operasi ini juga melibatkan premis tidak berlesen yang masih beroperasi sedangkan sebelum ini mereka telah diberikan surat supaya menghentikan perniagaan.

Dalam operasi hari ini, MPK menyita peralatan premis Winter Refleksologi yang sebelum ini pernah diserbu sebanyak lima kali.

Jelas Azmiam, kerajaan negeri sedang mengkaji undang-undang yang sesuai bagi membendung kegiatan haram ini.

"SUK sedang mengkaji undang-undang dan mengambil tidakan terhadap tuan punya premis yang menyewakan kedai mereka kepada pengusaha rumah urut.

Sekiranya mereka tidak mahu menghentikan operasi, premis berkenaan akan dirampas," ujarnya.

Tegas beliau, pihak MPK tidak pernah meluluskan mana-mana lesen rumah urut sejak tahun 2008 dan pihaknya masih lagi memantau beberapa premis di kawasan Bukit Tinggi, Meru dan Bayu Perdana yang beroperasi secara tidak sah sebelum tindakan tegas bakal diambil.
