An independent inquiry should be carried out on the shameful rape of a handball athlete in the Sukma 2013 in Universiti Putra Malaysia(UPM) to ensure female athletes are safe and that there will no repeat of such shameful incidents or else Penang may reconsider sending female athletes to future sukma games
There have been complaints of lax security in the grounds of the female hostel despite assurances by the Ministry and SUKMA games organisers that security was adequate. Clearly security is lax until such a shameful sexual crime can happen. Such a crime has not only smeared the image of the SUKMA Games but also Malaysia's international sporting reputation.
The Penang state government wants clear assurances from the Minister of Youth and Sport Datuk Khairy Jamaludin of adequate security and that action is taken against those responsible for such lax security in UPM. If Khairy fails to provide such assurances, then the Penang state government may reconsider sending female athletes to future SUKMA Games.

Department of Occupational Health and Safety(DOSH) Must Conduct A Speedy Conclusion To The Collapse Of The Penang UMNO Building Tower By Next Week Similar That Of The Ramp Of The Penang 2nd Bridge Caused By Contractor’s Negligence.(en/cn)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 9.7.2013.
DOSH must conduct a speedy conclusion by next week to the collapse of the Penang UMNO building tower, which caused 2 deaths similar to the ramp of the Penang 2nd Bridge caused by contractor's negligence which resulted in the loss of one life. DOSH Director general Datuk Dr Johari Basri said last week that DOSH's investigations into the collapse of the second Penang Bridge ramp has indicated “shortcomings” due to negligence by the contractor, involving both “procedural and technical” aspects.
He even said that DOSH is preparing to file charges and are discussing it with the public prosecutor to get consent. MPPP had issued a stop-work order over the entire span of the 2nd Bridge, estimated to cost RM 3 billion with a total length of 24 km, until a full safety audit has been conducted to ensure that it is not in danger of collapse.
Until the stop work order is lifted and the all clear given as to structural safety and stability, the Penang state government will not authorise permits for any events or activities to be held on the 2nd Penang Bridge. The Penang International Bridge Marathon in November this year, which was slated to be held for the first time on the 2nd Penang Bridge, will be moved back to the 1st Penang Bridge.
I have been informed that DOSH is also conducting a similar inquiry into the collapse of the Penang UMNO tower building that happened exactly one week after the collapse of the ramp of the Penang 2nd Bridge. As there is only a one week difference between both tragedies, DOSH should be able to complete investigations into the cause of the collapse of the UMNO Building tower by next week.
