Necessity Of Establishing The IPCMC Has International Relevance Following The Death Of A Japanese Detainee (en/cn)

Posted: 08 Jun 2013 11:31 PM PDT

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Penang On 9.6.2013.

Necessity Of Establishing The Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) Has International Relevance Following The Death Of A Japanese Detainee In Order To Gain Public Confidence That There Are No Abuses Of Power Or Torture In Custodial Deaths.

The necessity to establish the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) has international relevance following the death of a Japanese detainee in order to gain public confidence that there are no abuses of power or torture in custodial deaths. The death of aJapanese man who was found hanged at the grille of his lock-up cell at a Subang Jaya police station early Saturday, is the fourth custodial death in 2 weeks.

This international dimension of the tragedy of custodial deaths prevalent in Malaysia has clearly tarnished Malayisa's international reputation and smeared the image of Malaysia's police force, new Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Selangor deputy police chief Datuk A.Thaiveegan said an autopsy report issued by the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre found that the 33-year old Japanese detainee, Nobuhiro Matsushita, died as a result of hanging and that there were no injures on his body. Whatever the cause of death, the police has to come clean on these prevalent custodial deaths and fully explain how these detainees can die either by their own hand or by the very policemen meant to protect them.

How many more must die before the tragedy of custodial deaths are stopped? Only the establishment of an Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) can prevent needless custodial deaths and it would be very sad that a Japanese detainee must die in police custody before moving the BN Federal government to act. This latest fourth death in 2 weeks follows the 3 earlier deaths of:-
• Karuna Nithi's Tampin police lock-up on 4 June,
• R James Ramesh in a Penang police lockup on May 26; and
• the brutal killing of N Dhamendran with 52 injuries, while in a KL police headquarters lockup on May 21.

The number of custodial deaths since 2000 is 219, a shocking figure that is sure to rise without any safeguards and preventive mechanism such as the IPCMC. There is no reason why the BN Federal government refuses such oversight of the police when it is recommended in 2005 by the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Police.

Malaysians are shocked by the serial repetitions of custodial deaths that continue to occur despite assurances from BN Federal government Ministers that there will be safety and protection measures in place for detainees. Even former Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Musa Hasan said that he had not opposed the IPCMC when he was the IGP, provided that the police had a right to appeal to courts against the decisions made by IPCMC.

Whilst some of the custodial deaths may be due to natural causes, the public will continue to have grave suspicions in police interrogation methods unless the police can assure the public that they are not only clean, but are seen to be clean. The public have lost hope in new Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who clearly lacks urgency in protecting human rights and preventing custodial deaths as well as is completely disinterested in fighting crime but is more focused on using harsh and oppressive methods to silence any political dissent to protect BN.

Only a transparent and accountable mechanism which is available by establishing the IPCMC, can restore public confidence and reassure the public that detainees in police custody will be safe. Otherwise, the public will have recurring nightmares that should any of their loved ones be placed in police custody, they may not walk out alive.

民主行动党兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2013年6月19日在槟城发表声明:

随着一个日本藉扣留者在警方扣留所内死亡,成立独立警察投诉及行动不检委员会(IPCMC)已经是一项国际需要,以恢复公众信心,让人民相信警局扣留所没有滥权及拷打。

随着一个日本藉扣留者在警方扣留所内死亡,成立独立警察投诉及行动不检委员会(IPCMC)已经是一项国际需要,以恢复公众信心,让人民相信警局扣留所没有滥权及拷打。星期六清晨梳邦再也警局发现一名日本藉男子吊死在扣留室的铁梁上,成为两个星期内第四宗扣留所命案。

随着扣留所命案一而再发生,这次甚至涉及外国人,马来西亚、警方、新任总警长丹斯卡立及内政部长拿督斯里阿末查希的国际形象及声誉已经受毁。

雪州副总警长拿督达威甘说,马大医院的尸体解剖报告指这名33岁的日本扣留者松下 伸広,死于上吊,身上无其它伤痕,无论死因是什么,警方必须交代清楚,为什么扣留所命案一再发生?为什么这些被扣留的嫌犯可以自杀或被死于应该保护他们的警方的手下?

还要发生多少宗命案,我们才可以遏止扣留所命案?只有可以成立独立警察投诉及行动不检委员会(IPCMC),我们才可以遏止不必要的扣留所命案,更令人伤心的是,我们必须等到日本扣留者死在扣留所内,国阵联邦政府才会有所行动。这已是过去两州内发生的第四宗扣留所命案,前三宗命案分别中:
• 淡边印裔卡鲁那于6月4日死于警局扣留所。
• 占姆斯于5月26日死于槟城警局扣留所;
• 达门登5月21日是死于吉隆坡警察总部扣留所,全身共有52处伤痕,

自2000年开始的扣留所命案达219宗,如果没有像独立警察投诉及行为不检委员会这样的防卫及预防机制,这个可怕的数据一定还会增加。国阵联邦政府实在没有理由拒绝成立这个监督警方的组织,这是2005年皇家调查委员会针对警方提出的建议。

马来西亚人对于一而再发生的扣留所命案感到惊讶,尽管国阵联邦政府部长们一再保证扣留所的安全性及保护措施。就连前总警长丹斯里慕沙哈山也说,他身为总警长时并没有反对IPCMC,条件是警方必须在IPCMC做出裁决后,拥有在法庭上诉的权利。

虽然一些扣留所命案可能是自然死亡,但是公众会继续怀疑警方的审问手法,除非警方不只是廉洁,也要看起来廉洁。公众已经对新任内政部长拿督斯里阿末查希失去希望,他不急着保护人权、遏止扣留所命案,也明显毫无兴趣打击罪案,而比较倾向使用严厉及打压手法,压制任何政治异见,保护国阵。.

唯有成立独立警察投诉及行为不检委员会这类透明及有公信力的机制,才能恢复公众信心,也可向公众保证扣留所内的被扣留者将会安全。否则,公众会不断地重复恶梦,担心他们亲爱的家人在扣留所内是否安全,他们甚至可以无法活着走出来。

4 Challenges For Sarawak DAP In The 2015 State General Elections (en/cn)

Posted: 08 Jun 2013 11:20 PM PDT

Speech By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng During The Sarawak DAP State Ordinary Convention In Kuching On 9.6.2013.

4 Challenges For Sarawak DAP In The 2015 State General Elections

1. First of all, I would like to congratulate Saudara Wong Ho Leng and acknowledge his leadership in once again breaking new ground for DAP in Sarawak in the recently concluded 13th General Elections.

2. DAP Sarawak followed up its historic 2011 Sarawak State elections performance, where we won 12 out of the 15 Pakatan state seats, by winning 5 out of the 6 Pakatan parliamentary seats in the 13th GE.

3. A most remarkable victory was achieved in the Sibu parliamentary constituency, where our Saudara Oscar Ling, achieved the seemingly impossible by increasing our winning majority from 398 in the 2010 by-election to 2,841! Not only did he increase our winning majority more than 7 fold, he did this against Lau Lee Ming, a Temenggong, no less, and also a family member of the powerful KTS group in Sibu.

4. Under Saudara Wong Ho Leng's leadership, DAP also managed a clean sweep in the Sibu area by winning Sarikei by 505 (Saudara Wong Ling Biu) and also Lanang by 8,630 votes (Saudari Alice Lau).

5. In Kuching, Saudara Chong Chien Jen successfully increased his majority in Bandar Kuching from 9,952 in 2008 to 19,642 in 2013. Under his leadership in Kuching, we also managed to capture the Stampin seat with an 18,670 vote majority. This was a seat which we had lost by 3,070 votes in 2008. Our candidate in Stampin, Julian Tan, who is also a new comer, defeated a SUPP heavy weight and Deputy Minister, Yong Khoon Seng.

6. We also broke new ground in many non-Chinese and non-urban areas. For the first time in DAP's history, we fielded 6 non-Chinese candidates in 6 non-Chinese majority districts. In fact, DAP fielded more non-Chinese candidates compared to Chinese candidates (6 versus 5) in GE13! And in 4 out of these 6 parliament seats, we managed to reduce BN's support even though we did not managed to win these seats.

7. Mordi Brimol in Mas Gading, Edward Luak in Serian, Hai bin Merawin @ Bonaventure in Mukah, Ramli Anak Malak in Kapit, Dr. John Brian in Bintulu and Dr Bob Baru in Lawas should also commended for putting up an excellent showing despite being outspent by at least 10 to 1 by their opponents.

8. Dr. John Brian, for example, together with deputy chairman, Saudara Chew Chin Sing, managed to decrease BN's support by 15%, from 73% in 2008 to 58% in 2013.

9. I am confident that as we continue to work hard and penetrate into the semi-urban and rural areas in Sarawak, our performance can only improve especially in the next Sarawak state elections that are due in 2016.

10. DAP Sarawak now has 5 parliament and 12 state seats, a far cry from the 1 parliament and 1 state seat after the 2004 General Election.

11. To fully appreciate where we are today, we need to acknowledge the blood, sweat and tears that were spilled by those who had worked tirelessly on the ground without enjoying the fruits of their labour for many, many years. This includes Saudara Chong Siew Chiang, the founder of DAP in Sarawak, who first competed in the 1979 Sarawak state elections. He and other senior leaders of DAP Sarawak had to struggle through 4 state elections in 1979, 1983, 1987 and 1991 of not winning a single state seat.

12. It was only in the 1996 Sarawak state elections when the party made a breakthrough by winning 3 state seats, including Saudara Wong Ho Leng's 226 vote victory in Bukit Assek. This was followed by the setback in 2001 where we only won one state seat. Another minor breakthrough was achieved when DAP in Sarawak won a then record 6 state seats in the 2006 general elections. And of course, we all know how DAP doubled its state seats on April 16, 2011 to a record 12 state seats.

13. Without the hard work and sacrifice of the party's founding leaders in Sarawak, DAP would not be where it is today. Their struggles through the difficult times is a stark reminder that we can never be complacent and to take for granted our current position of strength especially in the urban areas. If we fall away from our principles, if we betray the trust of our voters, we can easily end up in the position which SUPP, MCA and GERAKAN find themselves in today.

Sarawak Problems Are Malaysian Problems – Where Is '1 Malaysia, 1 Price'?
14. While we must never forget our history and our roots, our challenges lay in the future. I foresee 4 important challenges for DAP moving forward in the state of Sarawak.

15. Firstly, DAP in Sarawak must rise up to the challenge of enhancing the party's stature as a national party. This means that issues of concern to Sarawak must be seen as national issues and that national issues must also be seen and interpreted through a Sarawakian perspective. Sarawak problems are Malaysian problems.

16. We have already seen how allegations of massive corruption against the Chief Minister of Sarawak, Tan Sri Taib Mahmud, affects not just the good name of the state of Sarawak and its people, but it also tarnishes the reputation of the country as a whole. We have also seen how cases involving palm oil plantations in Sarawak not obtaining Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification can affect the reputation of the entire industry in the country.

17. When is the "One Malaysia, One Price" going to be effected? When is poverty going to be eradicated and Native Customary Land of native Ibans going to be respected. No longer is it acceptable to have the landless and poorest in one of the richest and largest state in Malaysia.

18. While fully accepting the co-equal status of Sabah, Sarawak and Peninsular Malaysia, we can no longer accept the false dichotomy between what happens in Sabah, Sarawak and Peninsular Malaysia do not affect one another. The notion that 'whatever happens in Sarawak stays in Sarawak' is clearly a false notion that has been propagated by the BN in order to scare Sarawakians into continuing to support the BN and the Sarawak Chief Minister, Taib Mahmud.

Polls Reform Of 'One-Man, One Vote, One-Value' Shall Not Reduce The Number Or Proportion Of Parliamentary Seats In Sabah And Sarawak But Serves To Reduce Unfair Disparities That Devalues Democracy Within Both States.
19. Secondly, we must continue to fight for electoral reform in the country and especially in Sabah and Sarawak. Tens of thousands of Sarawakians who are working in Peninsular Malaysia, but do not have the time nor the resources to go back home to Sarawak to vote have been effectively disenfranchised. Sarawakians who are living and working in Peninsular Malaysia, must be permitted to cast a postal ballot just like how Malaysians overseas who are already registered cast their votes as postal voters. Without this change, the turnout rate in Sarawak, which was 76% in GE2013, cannot be on par with turnout in Peninsular Malaysia, which was 86.5% in GE2013.

20. We must also fight for the 'one-man, one-vote, one-value principle' in the upcoming re-delineation exercise so that the unfair advantages enjoyed by the BN can be somewhat reduced. The last re-delineation exercise in Sarawak was completed in 2005. Eight years on, in 2013, it is possible that the Election Commission (SPR / EC) may want to conduct this exercise for Sarawak as well. If the Sarawak review occurs this year, then we must push for the size of the disparity between voters per seat to be significantly reduced.

21. Here I would like to stress that the present proportion of parliamentary seats allocated to Sabah and Sarawak shall not change, out of respect for the traditional rights of both states granted when they joined Malaya in 1963 to form the Federation of Malaysia. In other words, what we are seeking for is neither reducing the number of parliamentary seats nor reducing the proportion of parliamentary seats in a future enlarged Malaysian Parliament.

22. Regardless of the number of parliament and state seats which may or may not be added, the obvious examples of unequal distribution of voters in seats WITHIN Sarawak is already a great cause of concern and a violation of the 'one-man, one-vote, one-value' principle. For example, we can no longer sustain having Stampin with 84000 voters on the one hand and Igan with a mere 17,815 voters (ratio of 4.75: 1). The same applies to the state seats as well where the largest seat, Pending, has more than 30,000 voters while the smallest, Ba'kelalan, has only slightly more than 7,000 voters, a ratio of 4.3 to 1.

23. The focus here should be to reduce the size of these disparities. DAP appreciates that geography can be equally important as demography in a state as large as Sarawak. Accordingly DAP is proposing a special consideration of a maximum voter disparity between constituencies in both states of 100%, instead of the baseline 15% disparity that was in the original Merdeka Constitution of 1957 for Peninsular Malaysia.

Kick-off For The 2015 Sarawak General Elections
24. Thirdly, we must kick off the next new phase by preparing for the coming state General Elections expected in 2015. Even though there is 2 years more to go, we have to strengthen our machinery into rural areas in a non-threatening and more persuasive manner. The important issues will again revolve around BN's mercenary rule where resources are reserved for the few and when will Tan Sri Taib Mahmud retire as promised in the 2011 state general elections. The new Sarawak DAP Committee will be required to submit their election plans and preparation to the CEC.

25. DAP Sarawak has already announced that it will plan to work the ground in an additional 23 non-Chinese majority seats in preparation for the next state general elections. We will be asking all DAP ADUNs and MP, especially the 128 non-Sarawak MPs and ADUNs, to actively assist in the rural areas to break down and dismantle Taib Mahmud's and BN's rural domination.

PR's Ideals, Principles And People-Centric Policies Can Bring A Better Future.
26. Fourthly, we must focus of ideals, principles and people-centric policies to counter corruption, privileged interests and cronyism. Our challenge is to show rural Sarawak that our policies will make a positive difference in their lives. Rural Sarawak must be fully aware of the benefits of DAP's proposed RM1 billion Dayak Endowment Fund. Many do not know how change matters and can make a better future for their children.

27. Whilst the 2013 general elections is an urban tsunami covering all races whether Malay, Chinese, Indian, Kadazan or Iban, including Sarawak, we have to instill courage, Malaysian goodwill and hope to dispel the hatred, fear and even violence perpetuated by BN. For Sarawakians, the question is even more pressing to ensure that Sarawakians receive a fair share of their natural resources such as increasing the oil and royalty from the present miserly 5% given by BN's Petronas to 20%.

28. If DAP in Sarawak and in the rest of Malaysia can rise up to embrace these 4 challenges, I am confident that Sarawak will play a key role in ensuring that Pakatan wins a simple majority in the next general elections, in GE14. The key to opening the GE14 door is for Pakatan to break new ground in the 2015 Sarawak state elections as a precursor to Pakatan winning power in Putrajaya.

29. Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyidin Yassin is going on a rampage to punish those who support PR, especially the Chinese community. This makes a mockery of democracy as people should not be punished for making a free choice. If PR can treat everyone fairly in the states we rule, why can't BN behave like a Malaysian, and not like a bad bully that continues to discriminate and take political revenge?

30. The only alternative to have a bright future for Sarawak and Malaysia is to change the BN government. Let us prove that the power of the people is more powerful than those people in power. Have a good State Ordinary Convention and good luck to those elected leaders. You have a lot of work to do. Thank you.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2013年6月9日在砂拉越行动党常年代表大会上发表演讲:

砂拉越行动党于2015年州选中的四项挑战

首先我要感谢黄和联的领导,让砂拉越行动党在第13届大选中取得突破。

砂拉越行动党在2011年历史性赢得15个民联州议席中的其中12个州议席,也在第13届大选中赢得6个民联国会议席中的5个议席。

最显著的胜利是诗巫国会议员林财耀,在本届大选中,将行动党多数票从2010年补选的398张,增加至2010年2841张!他不只将我们的多数票增加了7倍,也打败了人联党候选人刘利民,他是一名天猛公,也是诗巫最强大KTS集团的家族成员。

在黄和联的领导下,行动党也横扫诗巫一带的议席,黄灵彪以505张多数票赢得泗里街,刘强燕以8630张多数票赢得南兰国会议席。

在古晋国会选区,张健仁成功把多数票从2008年9952张增加至2013年19642张,在他的领导下,我们也成功赢下实旦宾,我们的新人陈国彬成功击败人联党重量级候选人兼副部长杨昆贤。

我们也开拓了许多非华裔及非城区的选区,行动党历史上第一次在六个非华裔大多数选区,派出六名非华裔候选人。事实上,行动党在第13届大选派出更多非华裔候选人(6名,华裔候选人五名), 在其中四个国会选区,虽然我们没有赢得议席,但是,我们成功削弱了国阵的多数票。

我们也要表扬玛士加汀的莫迪比末、西连的爱德华、沐胶的海美拉维、加帛的蓝里玛拉卡、民都鲁的约翰布莱恩、老越的巴鲁,尽管对手比他们花费至少10倍,他们还是取得不俗的成绩。

例如,约翰布莱恩与副主席周政新成功地削减了15%国阵多数票,从2008年73%,减至2013年58%.
我有信心,凭着我们继续努力渗透砂拉越半城区及乡区,我们将在2016年前的砂州选举取得更好的表现。
砂州行动党目前已有5国及12州,比2004年大选只赢得1国1州真是天壤之别。

我们能有今天的成就,必须归功于那些默默耕耘、付出血汗、泪水的党员们,包括砂州行动党创始人张守江同志,他于1979年在砂州选举竞选。他与其他砂州元老在1979、1983、1987及1991四届州选举中连连战败、一个议席也没有赢下。

直到1996年砂州选举,行动党终于取得突破赢得三个州议席,包括黄和联在武吉亚瑟以226多数票胜出。后来,到了2001年我们又倒退只剩一个州议席。另一个小小的突破是砂州行动党在2006年历史性赢下6个州议席。当然,我们也知道,砂州行动党如何在2011年4月16日增加双倍议席至12个议席。

没有这一群砂州行动党创始元老的辛勤及牺牲, 我们不会有今天。他们所经历的困难时期,时时刻刻提醒我们千万不能自满,认为我们目前在城区的强处是理所当然的。如果我们不坚守原则、背信选民,我们很容易沦为今天的人联党、马华及民政党。

砂拉越的问题就是马来西亚人的问题:一个马来西亚、一个价值在哪里?

我们除了饮水思源,也不能忽视未来的挑战。我看到砂州行动党前进的四项挑战:
第一,砂州行动党必须强化行动党做为全国性政党的宗旨。这意味着砂拉越的课题就是全国课题,而全国课题必须通过砂拉越人的观点诠释出去。砂拉越的问题就是马来西亚人的问题。

我们已经看到砂州首长丹斯里泰益玛目的严重贪腐,这不只将影响砂拉越及其人民的良好名誉,也毁坏马来西亚的国际声誉。我们也看到砂州那些没有获得《RSPO可持续棕榈油生产原则和标准》的棕油业者如何影响我国整个行业的声誉。

"一个马来西亚、一个价值"什么时候才能有效?什么时候才能除贫?什么时候伊班人的传统习俗地才会受到尊重?我们再也不能接受在我国最大、最富有的州属内,还有无土地、最贫穷的群体。

在我们接受沙巴、砂拉越及马来半岛地位平等的基础上,我们不能接受"砂、沙及西马所发生的事互不相干"这种错误的二分法。那种"砂州发生的事只限于砂州"就明显的概念错误,是国阵用来恐吓砂州人民的伪宣传,好像本地人继续支持国阵及砂州首长泰益玛目。

"一人、一票、一价"的选举改革,并不是要减少沙、砂两州的议席数量或比例,而是要真正减少两州不公平、让民主贬值的悬殊情况。

第二,我们要继续为国内,特别是砂、沙两州的选举改革而斗争。数以万计的砂州人民在西马工作,他们没有时间也没有资源回砂州投票,其投票的公民权利被剥夺。在西马工作、居住的砂州人民必须被允许像海外国人那样,可以登记成为邮寄选民。否则,砂州在第13届大选的投票率76%,永远无法像西马的投票率86.5%那样高。

我们也要在来临的选区重新划分中争取实现"一人、一票、一价"原则,以削弱国阵所享受的不公平好处。砂州上一次划分选区是在2005年。八年过去了,2013年,选委会也可能要在砂州进行选区重新划分。如果砂州今年进行选区重新划分,我们必须推动拉近各议席之间的选民人数差距。

我要强调,沙、砂现有的国会议席比例不应该改变,这是尊重两州在1963年加入马来亚时的传统权利。换句话说,我们不是要减少国会议席,也不是要减少在未来国会扩大后、国会议席的比例。
22. 不管国会议席及州议席数是否增加,我们关注砂州各议席选民人数严重不公平分布的问题,这严重违反"一人、一票、一价"原则。例如,我们不能接受实旦宾的选民达8万4000人,而伊干的选民人数只有1万7815人(4.75比1)。同样的,在最大的州议席朋岭有3万多名选民,而峇加拉兰区只有7000名选民,比例为4.3比1。

我们要把焦点放在缩小这些选民人数的差距。我们认同在砂拉越这样大的州属,其地理考量与人口考量同样受到重视。因此,我们提议特别考量,这两个州属最大和最小的议席之间,选民人数差距最高不可以超出一倍,而不是西马1957年联邦宪法15%差距。

2015年砂州选举开始备战

第三,我们要开始为2015年的州选开始备战。虽然还有两年的时间,我们必须强化我们进行乡区的机器,采用非威胁及更具说服力的方式。我们依然会把课题锁定在国阵的统治规则既资源只为少数人所用,以及丹斯里泰益玛目什么时候兑现在2011年州选区的退位承诺?新的砂州州委将被要求呈交他们的备战计划给中委。

砂州行动党也已经宣布将在23个非华裔选区进行基层工作,准备下届大选。我们将要求全体行动党国州议员,特别是是128个非砂州国州议员,活跃地协助砂州进入乡区,打破及瓦解泰益玛目及国阵对乡区的垄断。

民联的理想、原则及以民为本的政策可以带来更好的未来。

第四,我们必须要注重在理想、原则及以民为本的政策,以反击贪污、特权及朋党。我们的挑战是如何让乡区人民相信,我们的政策将为他们的生活带来积极的改变。砂州乡区人民必须认识到行动党提议的10亿令吉达雅人基金。很多人不知道,改变可以为他们的孩子带来更好的未来。

2013年大选是涵盖马来人、华人、印度人、卡达山人或伊班人各族人民的城区海啸,包括砂拉越。我们要灌输勇气、亲善和希望,来应对国阵所鼓吹的仇恨、恐惧及暴力。对砂州而言,更迫切的问题是如何确保砂州人民获取他们在天然资源的公平分额,例如我们要将国阵国油所给的5%石油税,增加至20%。
如果砂州行动党和全马人民可以解决上述四项挑战,我相信,在第14届大选我们可以依赖砂州,赢得简单多数议席。而民联若要赢得第14届大选,我们必须在2015年砂州选举中有所突破,引领民联进军布城。

副首相丹斯里慕尤丁正对民联支持者,特别是华社进行秋后算账。这让我国的民主沦为笑柄,人民不应该因为选择自由而受惩罚。如果民联可以在我们执政的州属公平对待人民,为什么国阵领袖不能做个像样的马来西亚人,反而像恶霸那样,四处歧视进行政治报复?

唯有改朝换代,砂州及马来西亚才能更好的未来。让我们证明,人民的力量比掌权者的权力更强大。

PRU14: Ambil alih Putrajaya dan tawan Sabah

Posted: 09 Jun 2013 12:00 AM PDT

30 Rejab 1434 H. [MOD] -
Harakahdaily/-

KUALA LUMPUR: Pemimpin dan ahli DAP akan mula membuat persediaan untuk Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14 dengan dua matlamat – membuat perubahan di peringkat Persekutuan dan juga kerajaan negeri Sabah, kata Ketua anggota Parlimen DAP Lim Kit Siang.

Katanya, matlamat Pakatan Rakyat di Sabah untuk memenangi sekurang-kurangnya sepertiga dari 26 kerusi parlimen di negeri ini tidak tercapai dalam pilihan raya lalu.

Sasaran ini dibuat bagi membolehkan PR mengumpul 33 kerusi parlimen dari tiga negeri "deposit tetap" Sabah, Sarawak, dan Johor, untuk membantu mencukupkan kerusi parlimen yang diperlukan untuk PR menawan Putrajaya.

Dalam pilihan raya yang lalu, Pakatan Rakyat hanya berjaya mendapatkan 14 kerusi Parlimen di ketiga-tiga negeri "deposit tetap" Sabah, Sarawak, dan Johor (Sabah 3, Sarawak 6, Johor 5).

Ia hanya 16.9% dari keseluruhan 83 kerusi parlimen yang dipertandingkan di ketiga-tiga negeri dan bukannya 33.3% seperti yang disasarkan.

Walaupun sasaran Pakatan Rakyat untuk mendapatkan 33 kerusi parlimen di negeri-negeri "deposit tetap" Sabah, Sarawak, dan Johor tidak tercapai, satu hakikat yang tidak dapat diabaikan berikutan keputusan PRU 13 itu ialah bahawa ketiga-tiga negeri Sabah, Sarawak, dan Johor tidak lagi boleh dianggap sebagai "deposit tetap" bagi Barisan Nasional.

Persaingan untuk memenangi hati dan minda rakyat Sabah, Sarawak dan Johor kini terbuka sepenuhnya untuk semua pihak, tambah Kit Siang yang menang di Gelang Patah, Johor.

Bagi Sabah, katanya, kehadiran pembangkang semakin jelas dalam Dewan Undangan Negeri Sabah setelah dua dekad tidak menyaksikan adanya pembangkang yang kuat di sana.

Kini DUN Sabah dianggotai oleh 11 Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri daripada Pakatan Rakyat (4 DAP, 7 PKR) dan seorang daripada Star.

Bagaimanapun, katanya, pilihan raya umum pada 5 Mei lalu memberi pengajaran berharga kepada Pembangkang di Sabah, memandangkan Barisan Nasional dapat ditewaskan di empat kerusi parlimen dan lapan kerusi dewan undangan negeri jika tidak berlaku perpecahan undi untuk calon-calon Pembangkang.

Empat kerusi parlimen itu ialah P. 168 Kota Marudu, P. 180 Keningau, P. 181 Tenom dan P. 182 Pensiangan, manakala lapan kerusi DUN yang berkenaan ialah N.11 Kiulu, N.29 Kundasang, N. 31 Paginatan, N. 32 Tambunan, N. 34 Liawan, No. 35 Melalap, N.38 Nabawan dan N.45 Elopura.

Malah, jika Pembangkang bersatu ia mungkin boleh memenangi 11 kerusi Parlimen dan 26 kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri.

Kerusi Parlimen iaitu tiga yang telah dimenangi, ditambah dengan empat yang terlepas daripada genggaman kerana undi pecah, dan empat lagi kerusi, iaitu P. 177 Beaufort, P. 170 Tuaran, P. 179 Ranau dan P. 169 Kota Belud.

Kerusi DUN adalah 12 yang ada sekarang, ditambah dengan lapan yang terlepas kerana undi pecah dan enam lagi, iaitu N.2 Tanjong Kapor, N.30 Karanaan, N.36 Kemabong, N. 37 Sook, N. 44 Karamunting dan N.46 Tanjong Papat.

"Bagi PRU13 saya percaya lebih mudah untuk Pakatan Rakyat merebut Kerajaan Persekutuan di Putrajaya daripada memenangi Kerajaan Negeri Sabah," katanya.

Bagaimanapun, Pakatan Rakyat menghadapi cabaran yang amat berbeza untuk PRU14 kerana ia mempunyai dua objektif serangkai – untuk memenangi Kerajaan Persekutuan di Putrajaya dan juga merebut Kerajaan Negeri Sabah.

"Atas sebab ini, saya ingin mengingatkan para pemimpin, ahli, dan penyokong DAP serta Pakatan Rakyat bahawa kita tidak mempunyai masa untuk berehat kerana kita harus segera memulakan kerja untuk mencapai matlamat yang gagal kita capai dalam PRU13, selain untuk memastikan yang kita berjaya membina asas yang kukuh untuk turut memenangi Kerajaan Negeri Sabah dalam PRU14," tegas Kit Siang.

Atas sebab ini juga, selain empat kerusi DUN yang telah DAP miliki, DAP Sabah akan segera memberikan tumpuan terhadap 13 kawasan untuk membantu Pakatan Rakyat mencapai kedua-dua matlamatnya dalam PRU14.

Kawasan-kawasan terbabit adalah Elopura, Karamunting, Tanjong Papat, Tanjong Aru, Karanaan, Paginatan, Tanjong Kapor, Melalap, Kemabong, Liaiwan, Sook, Tambunan dan Merotai.

Tambah Kit Siang, untuk membantu kempen DAP dan PR di Sabah bagi PRU14, Ahli-ahli Parlimen dan ADUN DAP di dalam dan luar Sabah digalakkan untuk mengambil salah satu dari 13 kawasan berkenaan sebagai kawasan angkat.

Jawatankuasa Negeri Sabah bersama-sama dengan Teresa Kok, penyelaras CEC bagi Sabah dan Sarawak, akan merangka perincian bagi program "kawasan angkat" ini yang akan membolehkan lebih daripada seorang wakil rakyat DAP untuk dilantik sebagai wakil rakyat angkat bagi setiap satu dari 13 kawasan terbabit.

"Sebagai langkah mula, saya akan mengambil peranaan sebagai DUN angkat memandangkan saya telah melawat Ranau untuk Pesta Kaamatan Kg Sarapong kelmarin," katanya

Mat Sabu: PAS sertai himpunan 15 Jun

Posted: 08 Jun 2013 11:42 PM PDT

27 Rejab 1434 H. [MOD] -

  • Timbalan presiden PAS Mohamad Sabu berkata parti itu hari ini memutuskan untuk menyertai perhimpunan 'Black 505' anjuran Pakatan Rakyat yang akan diadakan pada 15 Jun ini.

  • Mohamad berkata, jawatankuasa PAS pusat hari ini sebulat suara bersetuju agar parti tersebut mengambil bahagian dalam perhimpunan berkenaan.

    Perhimpunan tersebut antara lainnya dirancang sebagai kemuuncak bagi siri perhimpunan untuk membantah penipuan yang didakwa berlaku dalam pilihan raya 5 Mei.

    "Ya. Kita akan hadir. Dalam mesyuarat tadi semua sebulat suara bersetuju untuk hadir," katanya kepada pemberita selepas mesyuarat tersebut di ibu pejabat PAS di Kuala Lumpur hari ini.

    Kenyataannya itu menjawab teka-teki yang timbul ekoran kenyataan Ketua Dewan Ulama Datuk Harun Taib bahawa parti itu tidak menganjur atau mengambil bahagian secara sukarela dalam perhimpunan berkenaan.

    Harun dalam kenyataannya minggu lalu berkata, PAS bertindak demikian kerana menerima keputusan pilihan raya umum ke-13.

    Katanya, PAS sebaliknya memberi fokus kepada persiapan bagi pilihan raya umum akan datang.
    Turut hadir dalam mesyuarat hari ini ialah presiden Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.

MP cabar Najib jawab tuntutan delegasi Mongolia

Posted: 08 Jun 2013 11:37 PM PDT

30 Rejab 1434 H. [MOD] -

  • MP Ampang Zuraida Kamaruddin mahu Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak agar menjawab tuntutan dari delegasi Mongolia ke Sidang Kemuncak Global Wanita di Kuala Lumpur, Jumaat lalu yang mahu satu perbicaraan baru diadakan untuk mengenalpasti pembunuh Altantuya Shaariibuu.
    "Saya menggesa Najib Razak menjawab persoalan yang telah dilontarkan berkenaan kes pembunuhan Altantuya. Kes ini telah berlarutan selama tujuh tahun tanpa sebarang penyelesaian dan sehingga kini masih tiada seorang pun dihukum bersalah atas trajedi tersebut.

    "Najib Razak dan Razak Baginda yang berkait rapat dengan kes pembunuhan Altantuya  masih lagi menjalani hidup seperti biasa. Dua kakitangan Unit Tindakan Khas Azilah Hadri dan Sirul Azhar Umar telah disabitkan bersalah membunuhan Altantuya, walaupun motif pembunuhan tidak diketahui," katanya dalam satu kenyataan.

    Zuraida seterusnya turut mencabar menteri pembangunan wanita Datuk Rohani Karim untuk membangkitkan isu berkenaan kerana Altantuya yang terbunuh dalam kes pembunuhan berkenaan merupakan seorang ibu kepada dua orang anak kecil.

    "...Dato Rohani Abdul Karim sepatutnya menekankan kepentingan kes ini diselesaikan kerana ia melibatkan pembunuhan kejam seorang wanita Mongolia yang mempunyai dua anak yang masih kecil.

    "Saya ingin melihat samada beliau berani untuk mengetengahkan isu ini kepada Perdana Menteri yang jelas ingin mencuci tangan dalam kes ini," katanya.

    Presiden Persekutuan Wanita Mongolia (MWF), J Erdenechimeg yang menjadi wakil ke persidangan berkenaan pada hari Jumaat lalu berkata, perbicaraan baru harus dimulakan untuk mengetahui siapa yang bertanggungjawab atas kematian Altantuya.

    "Kami membuat permintaan khusus kepada Kementerian Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat Malaysia untuk bertindak atas ini dan supaya perbicaraan segera diadakan," tegasnya.

    Beliau yang diiringi kira-kira 70 anggota delegasi berkata MWF juga berharap agar bantuan kewangan diberikan kepada dua orang anak mendiang Altantuya.

    Pengarah eksekutif MWF, Ariunna Shagdarsuren pula berkata pertubuhan berkenaan memutuskan untuk membawa mesej itu bagi pihak keluarga si mati selepas bertemu dengan bapa Altantuya.

    "Bapanya telah meminta kami supaya membangkitkan perkara ini kerana beliau perlu memberitahu cucunya mengapa ibu mereka mati di Malaysia," katanya.

    "Sudah bertahun-tahun berlalu, berapa lama lagi mereka perlu menunggu?

SPR ubah dua kali keputusan penuh PRU13

Harakahdaily/-


KUALA LUMPUR:Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) telah dua kali mengubah keputusan penuh pilihan raya ke 13 apabila undi yang hilang sudah menjadi 53, 045 undi selepas diubahsuai (Corrigendum) pada 22 Mei 2013.

Sebelum diwartakan iaitu keputusan pada 5 Mei 2013 undi hilang adalah 65,286 undi manakala selepas warta pada 22 Mei 2013 adalag 53,045 undi.

Undi hilang adalah jumlah kertas undi yang tidak dimasukkan ke dalam tong undi selepas ia dikeluarkan kepada pengundi.

"Yang menghairankan saya bagaimana boleh keputusan pru13 berbeza dengan pengumuman pegawai pengurus pada hari pengundiaan 5 mei 2013," kata seorang pengundi yang membuat kajian terperinci mengenai perkara ini, Mohd Azlan Mohd Sharif.

Menurutnya, alasan tidak rasmi oleh SPR (yang diberitahu wartawan kanan kepada beliau) iaitu kerani tersalah masuk data atau salah kira akibat salah tekan kalkulator.

"Ia tidak masuk akal. Saya sedang menanti jawapan bertulis SPR berdasarkan surat saya pada 7 Jun 2013 lalu," kata Azlan dalam kenyataannya.

Bagi Azlan, membawa keluar kertas undi adalah satu jenayah seperti dinyatakan dalam Seksyen 3(1)(h) dan seksyen 6(2) Akta Kesalahan Pilihan Raya 1954.

"Ia perlu digunakan bagi membuktikan dakwaan saya," katanya dan mendakwa SPR perlu bertanggungjawab apabila perkara berlaku.

Sehingga kini, tujuh laporan polis telah beliau lakukan bagi memudahkan pihak berkuasa menyiasat dan mendakwa sesiapa yang melakukan 'jenayah' ini.

Menurut analisa beliau juga, undi rosak juga sudah dua kali berubah.

Undi rosak (Bagi 727 kerusi)


1) Sebelum warta (Keputusan 5 Mei 2013) = 323,353 undi.

2) Selepas warta(22 Mei 2013) = 326,668 undi

3) Selepas Corrigendum (31 Mei 2013) = 326,707 undi

Pakatan wants courts to vet Sabah voter list

Posted: 09 Jun 2013 05:07 AM PDT

Malaysiakini

Pakatan Rakyat will file a judicial review application to challenge the veracity of the electoral roll involving several constituencies in Sabah.

NONEAt a press conference in Kota Kinabalu today, PKRde facto leader Anwar Ibrahim said there are evidence that the electoral roll is tainted with non-citizens.

He said that this had affected the election in five parliamentary constituencies in Sabah – Pututan, Sepanggar, Libaran, Kudat and Tawau.

"We cannot accept (the results) because not only did we win the majority vote (but) there was that huge scam… In Sabah, other than the election petitions for Kota Marudu and Pensiangan, we will bring the case of non-citizens casting their votes.

"This is a serious case in Sabah and in the name of justice, the courts should, in the judicial review that we will be filing, decide that Election Commission must clean up the electoral rolls,” he said.

RCI testimonies to be used

Apart from the judicial review, Anwar said Pakatan will be filling about 30 election petitions to challenge the results of the 13th general election.

Anwar did not present any evidence during the press conference but claimed that Pakatan’s research found that more than 60,000 non-citizens had voted in Sabah on May 5.

In addition, he said Pakatan’s lawyers will also be submitting testimonies given to the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on Sabah’s population boom as evidence.

Several beneficiaries of the so-called “Project IC” or “Project M” – essentially a citizenship-for-votes scam – have provided detailed testimonies to the RCI on how easy it was for them to become a full-fledge Malaysian citizens.

Anwar predicts that the chances of Pakatan succeeding in its application for a judicial review and election petitions were “slim” because he believed that “judges of integrity” who decide based on facts and the law are scarce.

"I am hopeful and if the judiciary system cannot defend the Federal Constitution and law, then it is a tragedy for Malaysian," he said.

Istilah ‘dakwat kekal’ tipu pengundi, kata Dr Haron Din

Posted: 08 Jun 2013 10:00 AM PDT

Harakah Daily

Timbalan Mursyidul Am PAS Tuan Guru Datuk Dr Haron Din mendakwa, rakyat khususnya pengundi pada Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 (PRU13) lalu telah ditipu berhubung penggunaan dakwat ‘kekal’.

Katanya, tidak kira pihak mana yang sebenarnya bertanggungjawab dengan dakwat yang tidak kekal itu, namun hakikatnya seluruh pengundi telah ditipu oleh istilah ‘dakwat kekal’ itu.

"Polis mempunyai kapa­siti menyiasat siapa yang menipu siapa dalam kes tersebut. Pembekal mem­bekalkan dakwat tidak kekal sedangkan dinamakan sebagai dakwat kekal. Ertinya pembekal menipu SPR. Kalau SPR memesan dakwat tidak kekal tetapi menamakan dakwat kekal, maka SPR menipu kerajaan dan pengundi.

"Kalau kerajaan ber­pakat dengan SPR meme­san dakwat yang tidak kekal tetapi mendakwa se­bagai dakwat kekal, maka SPR bersekongkol dengan kerajaan menipu rakyat," ujarnya.

Pada hari pengundian 5 Mei lalu, beliau yang merupakan calon PAS bagi kawasan Parlimen Arau, adalah antara individu yang membuat laporan polis berhubung dakwat yang dicalit ditanggannya boleh tanggal sejurus selepas membuang undi.

Mengulas lanjut beliau berkata, banyak lagi kepincangan yang berlaku sepanjang proses pilihan raya lalu seperti didedahkan oleh banyak pihak.

Sehubungan itu katanya, beliau menyokong se­barang perhimpunan aman membantah penipuan pilihan raya yang dianjurkan di negara ini selagi tidak mengun­dang kepada malapetaka.

"Lagi pun, Islam dan perlembagaan negara membenarkan perhimpu­nan secara aman. Seperti juga kita berhimpun pada hari Jumaat. Itu juga dina­makan sebagai demonstra­si tetapi diadakan secara aman. Sama juga perhim­punan besar di Makkah. Perhimpunan aman saya sokong," jelas beliau.

Fire razes school dorm, office

Posted: 08 Jun 2013 08:55 AM PDT


8 June 2013

SEREMBAN: Fire razed a school administrative office and a student dormitory block at 10th mile of Jalan Labu, here, on Thursday night.

However, there were no casualties in the 9.30pm incident, which occurred at the 56-year-old Pusat Pendidikan Islam Al-Irsyad.

The school's principal, Shaifudin Maulup, was away in Tampin delivering a ceramah when the fire occurred.

He was informed of the fire by his wife Sharifah Norasyida Syed Nordin, who is also the headmistress of Sekolah Rendah Tahfiz Al-Irsyad.

"I rushed back to the school, but by the time I arrived firemen had already put out the fire.

"I was sad to see religious books, old "kitab", important documents and teaching equipment destroyed in the fire."

The fire at one of the dormitory blocks also left 20 of the school students without a roof over their heads.

"I estimate the losses at around RM30,000, but now the main problem is where to place all 20 students who stayed in the damaged block when they return for school next week."

The school was opened by the late Tun Abdul Razak Hussein in 1968, two years before he went on to become the country's second Prime Minister in 1970.

The school has 221 tahfiz students with 45 of them staying at its dormitories, 116 students of Kelas al-Quran and Fardu Ain (KAFA), 22 daily tahfiz students, and 38 children enrolled in its Islamic kindergarten.

Negri Sembilan Fire and Rescue Department assistant director (Safety Section) Jamaluddin Marawi said a fire engine with eight personnel from the Seremban 2 Fire Station was sent to put out the fire at the school.

"They managed to control the fire within five minutes and doused it in 20 minutes. We are still investigating the cause of the fire," he said when contacted yesterday.
