Zahid Must Apologise

Posted: 18 Mar 2011 10:05 AM PDT

I read with shock and horror the report in Utusan Malaysia today, quoting the Defence Minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who said:
"Dia [Tony Pua] dulu ditangkap di Singapura, dibawa ke mahkamah, tetapi sebab hubungan dia mungkin baik dengan pejabat tertentu di sana, beliau dilepaskan (dan) tidak dapat jadi ahli Parlimen (di sana)"
I cannot believe that a senior ranking Minister and the highest ranking vice-president of Umno would stoop so low as to spin venomous lies beyond imagination against me and my character.

The above falsehoods is clearly an attempt to divert the public and the media's attention away from the mega-procurement deals which the Defence Minister signed last month, amounting to RM13.55 billion.

Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has to date failed to provide clear and detailed explanation for the RM6 billion purchase of 6 offshore patrol vessels (OPVs) from Boustead Holdings Bhd as well as the RM7.55 billion purchase of 257 8x8 armoured wheeled-vehicles (AWVs) from DRB Hicom Bhd, whether to the media or in Parliament.

I had at various times called the Minister to explain in detail what exactly are we purchasing, at prices seemingly much higher than other countries. What's more, both of these contracts were awarded without any competitive tenders.

However, instead of being accountable to the rakyat, the Minister has chosen to spread malicious lies to tarnish my character and reputation as a diversionary tactic. In fact, his attempt to deflect the call for answers on the above military transactions with frivolous personal accusations leads me to believe that the Minister has something to hide from the people.

Let me make it clear in no uncertain terms that:
  1. I've never ever been arrested in Singapore, not even for jay-walking.
  2. I've never ever been charged in Singapore, for civil or criminal cases.
  3. I have no relationship whatsoever with the Government of Singapore
  4. I've never been interested in taking part in politics in Singapore, what's more as a Member of Parliament in that country.
Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi also claimed that I studied in Singapore from primary to tertiary level, which is factually wrong for I completed my primary school in SRK Montfort, Batu Pahat and for my Bachelor's degree at Oxford University. I was only in Singapore for my secondary education at Raffles Institution as a recipient of the ASEAN scholarship.

What's more I've never even taken up permanent residency in Singapore or any other country, unlike certain Barisan Nasional Ministers.

The insinuation by the Minister that I am now a "Singapore agent" due to a deal with Singapore authorities is downright evil. The story painted by the Defence Minister is so outrageous and incredible that perhaps he will make a better spy fiction writer like John Le Carre, than he is as the country's defence minister.

I call on Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to retract his statement and make an unreserved public apology within 24 hours or I will instruct my lawyers to file a defamation suit against him next week.

Hishamuddin Must Apologise to Malaysians

Posted: 18 Mar 2011 01:41 AM PDT

DAP condemns the violation and defacement of the Al-Kitabs impounded by the Home Ministry in Port Klang and calls for the Home Minister to apologise to Malaysians nationwide on its complete lack of sensitivity

We read in horror in yesterday evening's news in The Malaysian Insider and Malaysiakini which reported that "Al-Kitab defaced" and "Port Klang's BM Bibles 'violated'". The Bible Society of Malaysia has claimed that the 5,100 bibles which were seized two years ago have been stamped by the Home Minister with a serial number space and the text '"Al Kitab Berita Baik" ini untuk kegunaan penganut agama Kristian sahaja dengan perintah Menteri Dalam Negeri'.

The action above has been done without any consultation or agreement from the importer or the Church.

We condemn the complete lack of sensitivity of the Home Minister, Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein in the actions taken by the Ministry which had added salt to injury already suffered by the Christian community in Malaysia. Firstly, their bibles have been impounded for no valid reasons, restricting their freedom of religion and now, their holy book is being treated as anything but holy by the authorities.

In addition, the insistence on serial numbers to "control" the circulation of these bibles are as if they are subversive documents which are a threat to national security. The titular head of the Malacca-Johor diocese, Catholic bishop Paul Tan Chee Ing have denounced the condition as "crass forms of censorship redolent of the communist era".

The actions by the Barisan Nasional Government to date proves that the call for "1Malaysia" which promotes a multi-racial and multi-religious inclusive society under our federal constitution which guarantees freedom of religion under Article 11 which provides that every person has the right to profess and to practice his or her religion and (subject to applicable laws restricting the propagation of other religions to Muslims) to propagate it, is but an empty slogan.

We call upon the Home Minister to immediately apologise to all Malaysians for insulting the faith of the Christian community, and provide an unconditional guarantee that such incidences, including the arbitrary confiscation of Al-Kitabs will never again happen in the future.

Bung Mokhtar Escapes Unpunished

An enraging joke
Tarani Palani | March 16, 2011

KUALA LUMPUR: Tasteless and inane jokes are quite common in the Malaysian Parliament, but Kinabatangan MP Bung Mokhtar Radin might have gone too far in his attempt at comedy yesterday.
Tony Pua (DAP-Petaling Jaya Utara) was definitely not amused by Bung's reference to him as a "Singapore agent".

Pua told reporters today that he did not enjoy having his loyalty questioned.

Bung Mokhtar's unfunny statement was a rejoinder to Arau MP Ismail Kassim's complaint that foreigners were referring to rambutans as the Singapore lychee.

He interrupted Ismail, telling the latter to talk to Pua, the "Singapore agent". And he laughed at his own joke.

Several opposition MPs were up in arms over the remark. Fong Po Kuan said it was a serious allegation and demanded a retraction.

Deputy Speaker Ronald Kiandee said the comment was made in jest and managed to restore calm to the house.

Pua, who was not in the house when the incident took place, tried to raise the matter this morning, but was greeted with laughter from the government backbenchers.

Speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia said he could not overrule the decision made by his deputy.
Pua told reporters later that he was not amused, that to be accused of a serious crime was no laughing matter.

"If I am a real Singapore agent, then I am subjected to the death penalty," he said.
He said Bung Mokhtar should have been subjected to some punishment. "When Anwar linked Umno to Apco, he was suspended," he said.

[Perbahasan Parlimen Mac 17] Ucapan menjunjung kasih atas Titah Tuanku Yang Dipertuan Agong

Posted: 18 Mar 2011 06:41 AM PDT

Petikan Hansard Dewan Rakyat Pada 17 Mac 2011 (Khamis) / Sumber: www.parlimen.gov.my

A) Reporters without border: Malaysia di antara negara senarai The Enemies of Internet

Puan Teo Nie Ching [Serdang]: Terima kasih Tuan Yang di-Pertua kerana memberikan peluang kepada saya untuk menjunjung kasih atas Titah Tuanku Yang Dipertuan Agong. 12 Mac merupakan World Day Against Cyber Censorship dengan izin, tahun ini sempena sambutan World Day Against Cyber Censorship, the reporters without border dengan izin telah melancarkan satu laporan The Enemies of Internet ataupun musuh Internet. Dalam laporan tersebut 10 negara telah disenaraikan sebagai musuh Internet, manakala Malaysia bersama 15 buah negara lain lagi telah disenaraikan sebagai negara di bawah pengawasan, syabas kepada kerajaan Barisan Nasional. Bukan itu sahaja kedudukan Malaysia dalam World Press Freedom Index  dengan izin pada tahun 2010 telah jatuh daripada kedudukan 131 pada tahun 2009 kepada kedudukan ke-141 pada tahun 2010, tahniah sekali lagi kepada kerajaan BN.

Tuan Yang di-Pertua kedudukan Malaysia yang begitu teruk dan imej yang begitu memalukan adalah diakibatkan oleh tingkah laku kita sendiri. Sebagai contoh semasa perhimpunan Anti Perkauman yang telah dianjurkan pada 27 Februari yang lalu, PDRM telah menangkap 109 orang peserta, isu pertama adalah kenapa pihak polis perlu menangkap mereka yang berhasrat untuk menyertai perhimpunan anti racist itu. Adakah kerana kerajaan Barisan Nasional adalah sebuah negara yang menyokong perkauman?

B) Polis menahan 3 wartawan yang meliput berita Demonstrasi Hindraf menentang perkauman

Isu yang kedua ialah isu yang lebih penting adalah kenapa pihak polis menahan dan menangkap tiga orang wartawan yang bertugas pada hari tersebut? Mereka berada di sana untuk record apa yang telah berlaku sahaja.

Sebenarnya tanggungjawab PDRM adalah untuk melindungi wartawan dan bukan tangkap mereka. Jadi, untuk memperbaiki imej Malaysia di mata masyarakat antarabangsa, saya haraplah bahawa kerajaan kita bolehlah memberi satu penjelasan yang munasabah kenapa ketiga-tiga orang wartawan tersebut telah ditangkap dan memberi jaminan bahawa kerajaan Barisan Nasional tidak akan ganggu kerja wartawan pada masa yang akan datang. 

C) Kementetian Dalam Negeri bercadang memperluaskan pengaruh Akta Mesin Cetak dan Penerbitan 1984 ke dunia Internet

Satu langkah lagi yang boleh memperbaiki nama baik negara kita adalah mengulang kaji atau memansuhkan Akta Mesin Cetak dan Penerbitan 1984. Ketua Setiausaha Kementerian Dalam Negeri telah berkata bahawa pihaknya telah meminta Jabatan Peguam Negara mengkaji definisi penerbitan dalam akta itu sama ada ia boleh meliputi terbitan dalam bentuk multimedia termasuk kandungan internet, Facebook, dan lain-lain. Pindaan-pindaan yang dicadangkan oleh beliau hanya akan menghakiskan nama baik negara kita.

The story behind the Rocket symbol: Dr Chen Man Hin

Long Live DAP! RT @LimSweeKuan : Happy 45th birthday to DAP! Selamat Hari Jadi 生日快乐 Pirantha naal Vaazhthukkal!! ;-)

~ Dr Chen Man Hin

In August/September of 1965, a small group of supporters led by Devan Nair, met and discussed the future. Members of the group were Devan Nair, Dr S Seevaratnam, lawyer Xavier, Goh Hock Guan, Chan Kok Kit, Walter Loh, Peter Dass, and myself. Despite the grim situation, all of us unanimously agreed to form a new party. It was decided that the struggle for a more just and equal society must go on, however daunting the task.

I was elected the chairman and Devan Nair was secretary general. The new party applied for registration. Approval of the registration was successful in 1966. The committee chose the name of Democratic Action Party for the new party.

Next, the committee discussed the symbol for the party. After getting the views of party members and supporters, it was agreed that the symbol should be a rocket. At that time, journey to space was the main news all over the world.

Thus, the rocket symbolises a new future for the country which is progressive. A blue circle was chosen to represent unity of all the races. The rocket also had jet engines indicating that the major ethnic groups would work together for the advancement of Malaysia.

【星洲日报】Serdang Raya路段坑洞连连 . 张念群多次联系工程局维修却无下文

Posted: 18 Mar 2011 03:44 AM PDT

Pada 17 Mac yang lalu, Ahli Parlimen Serdang ditemani Ahli MPSJ Saudara Chong Hoon Ming, pengerusi JKKK Seri Kembangan Saudara Liew Yin Fatt dan AJK JKKK Saudara Liao Mu Gou mengadakan lawatan ke Jalan Utama Serdang Raya untuk memeriksa keadaan permukaan jalan yang mengalami kerosakan yang teruk.

Menurut Saudari Teo, Jalan Utama Serdang Raya yang berada di bawah kawalan Jabatan Kerja Raya kerajaan pusat tidak pernah mendapat penyelenggaraan yang sempurna. Beliau sudah berkali-kali menghubungi Jabatan Kerja Raya kerajaan pusat supaya kerja membaikpulih jalan diadakan tetapi sampai sekarang, Jabatan Kerja tidak memberi sebarang maklum balas ke atas aduan yang diterima. Oleh yang demikian Saudari Teo dan rakan-rakan sekerjanya di DAP Seri Kembangan mengambil keputusan mengadakan sidang media untuk menarik perhatian jabatan di bawah kawalan kerajaan pusat terhadap isu-isu yang dihadapi oleh penduduk-penduduk di Serdang Raya dan mengambil tindakan segera untuk menyelesaikan masalah ini.

Malaysians are shocked at the exposes of impropriety in the award of advertising contracts

Posted: 18 Mar 2011 12:34 AM PDT

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 18.03.2011.

Malaysians are shocked at the exposes of impropriety in the award of advertising contracts worth a total of RM381 million by the Ministry. Integrated Strategic Communications(ISC), the advertising company behind the ‘Malaysia, Truly Asia’ campaign since 1999, has alleged that bribes were solicited from them in order to secure the renewal of their contract.

ISC issued a press statement published by the Malaysian Insider that it withdrew a bid to renew its contract with the Tourism Ministry after being asked for bribes in exchange for the deal. ISC said it was rebutting Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen's denial of "ambiguity" in the tender process for the advertising and promotions contract, worth a total of RM381 million.

ISC founder and chief executive officer Austen Zecha alleged that both he and his deputy were jointly approached on January 19 to "offer the client" (the ministry) a 50 per cent "rebate" or an annual share of the firm's income from the account. In exchange, he said, ISC would then "re-win" another three-year Tourism Malaysia contract for the Europe, North America and Oceania tender. This request for a bribe essentially led ISC to decide to withdraw its tender on Wednesday, January 26," Zecha said.

Once again, corruption allegations from a big advertising agency have implicated a senior Cabinet Minister. Seen in the context of the recent arrests and charges against two former senior Ministers from the same party, Malaysians are rightfully disappointed with the opaque and irresponsible manner in which public funds are managed.

What is interesting is ISC's claim that its chairman was at one time its co-founder and investor , Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir. The root of this ugly plague of corruption is the system that has long fomented such practices. The only solution therefore, is to allow for open tenders held in public view. Penang's CAT administration of Competency, Accountability and Transparency that not only allowed open tenders but that the tenders be conducted through e-tenders online to limit human interaction.

The DAP urges the MACC to pursue these allegation without fear or favour. We also call for the Federal Government, and the Ministry of Tourism in particular, to prove their commitment to fiscal transparency as preached in the Prime Minister’s New Economic Model, by immediately instituting open tenders for all government projects henceforth.
