EPF Funds Must Not Be Politically Abused for "Social Welfare"

Posted: 02 Feb 2012 07:23 AM PST

It was reported on the front page of The Sun two days ago on 30th January that "some RM1.5 billion will be channelled from the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) to finance the special funding scheme for the sale of houses in public housing programmes in Kuala Lumpur."

Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said the funds will be given to the Federal Territories Foundation to help some 20,000 eligible tenants.  He added that "the scheme, announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak, will help those who are eligible to buy public housing units but are unable to obtain loans from banks, due to them being retired or not having steady income."

Datuk Raja Nong Chik added that "these loans will be repaid over a period of 15 to 25 years… there will be an interest charged, but it will be much lower than current housing loan interest rates charged by banks."

We support the fact measures by the Government to put in place low-cost and affordable housing schemes to help put a roof over the head of poor Malaysians.  However such programmes must not be financed by the EPF whose mission is to protect the hard-earned retirement income of 11 million working Malaysians, by maximising returns with the lowest possible investment risk.

On EPF's own website, it says that "the EPF is Malaysia's national provident fund that aims to provide financial security for its members' retirement purposes. The fund is committed to preserving and growing the savings of its members in a prudent manner in accordance with best practices in investments and corporate conduct."

The EPF is not a lender of the last resort for the poor and neither is it a social welfare organisation.  By utilising RM1.5 billion of Malaysian workers' monies to lend to house-buyers who are unable to secure financing from commercial banks will only jeopardise their retirement funds and is clearly an abuse by the Government.

Datuk Raja Nong Chik tried to allay fears that EPF could be at a losing end if the buyers default on their loans, by giving assurance that "the loan is secure as it is guaranteed against the housing unit itself".  However, if the housing unit is indeed a credit-worthy collateral, why can't commercial banks take it as a collateral?  Why is EPF funds being mobilised to give housing loans?

Instead of using the EPF, the Government should make full use of existing institutions such as Bank Rakyat or even Malaysia Building Society Bhd (MBSB) by channel special allocations to them via the social welfare and housing funds approved in the annual Federal Government budget for the purpose of providing soft loans to those in need.

By setting a precedent for EPF to be used "social welfare", the EPF could in future be further abused to finance political programmes to win votes under the guise of the same.  It is a slippery slope which will jeopardise the future savings of Malaysian EPF members.

We call upon the Government to source its own funds for the housing programme and not direct EPF to fund its social welfare schemes.  We also call upon the Board and Investment Panel of the EPF to thoroughly review the scheme to ensure that it is the workers' interest which is being prioritised and reject proposals which may harm the financial returns for our workers.

Teoh Beng Hock’s brother gets leave to review coroner’s open verdict

Posted: 02 Feb 2012 06:53 PM PST

PUTRAJAYA: The Court of Appeal granted leave on Thursday to Teoh Beng Hock's brother Teoh Meng Kee to seek a review of the coroner's open verdict on the late political aide's death.

In a unanimous decision, the three-man panel headed by Justice Datuk Sulaiman Daud said the court was satisfied that there was a question of law which could be pursued further for interpretation.

Justice Sulaiman allowed the application after hearing submissions by Gobind Singh and Deputy Public Prosecutor Abazafree Mohd Abbas, who appeared for the Attorney-General's Chambers. The panel, which also comprised Justices Datuk Syed Ahmad Helmy Syed Ahmad and Datuk Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim, also allowed two prayers sought by the family in the application.

The first is to allow the appellant to appeal against the Shah Alam High Court decision on Dec 1 last year which had rejected the review application on the finding of the open verdict of the Coroner's Court. The second is to file the notice of appeal within 14 days at the Court of Appeal once the leave is granted.

Teoh, the political secretary to Selangor state executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead on the fifth floor corridor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam, Selangor, on July 16, 2009, after giving a statement at the office of the Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission located on the 14th floor of the same building. He was 30 then.

On July 21 last year, a royal commission of inquiry headed by Federal Court Judge Tan Sri James Foong Cheng Yuen established Teoh's death as a suicide.

Earlier, on Jan 5, Coroner Azmil Muntapha Abas found that Teoh's death was neither a suicide nor a homicide and that no third party was involved in his death.

Meanwhile, when met outside the courtroom Thursday, Teoh's sister Lee Lan said the granting of the leave was "a start to regain justice for Beng Hock."

She also hoped that an open hearing would be held following the Court of Appeal's verdict..

Placing Indians as GLC Directors Not the Answer

Posted: 02 Feb 2012 01:00 AM PST

By G Vinod, Free Malaysia Today

Selangor exco Dr Xavier Jayakumar says how can a few Indians in top positions solve the community's problems?

PETALING JAYA: Having Indians as directors of state government-linked companies (GLCs) does not solve the community's problems, says Dr Xavier Jayakumar, the Selangor executive councillor in charge of Indian affairs.

"How would placing Indians in top positions alone help the community, who are mostly from the low-income group?" asked Jayakumar, who was responding to a criticism by an MIC leader.

What the community requires, he added, was better access to educational facilities, better social safety net and skills training opportunities which the state government was offering.

Yesterday, MIC central working committee member KP Samy criticised Selangor Pakatan Rakyat government, claiming it had neglected the Indian community despite riding on the community's support in the 2008 general election.

Samy claimed that no Indians were appointed to top positions in the state GLCs and Kumpulan Semesta, a state-owned sand-mining company, only employed one Indian staff as a driver.

The MIC was also upset that the state government has appointed a corporate figure as director of the Selangor public library after the former director retired.

"Why didn't the state government promote the deputy director, an Indian woman, to that post? She has worked in the library for 30 years," said Samy.

Jayakumar, who is also Seri Andalas assemblyman, said that the Selangor state government had introduced various grassroots programme in the state to help the Indian community.

"Since taking over the state, we have allocated about RM16 million for Tamil schools over the past four years, and the funds are directly channelled to its Parent-Teacher Associations.
Bus subsidies

He also said that the state government was spending about RM2 million to provide skills training programmes under "intense Selangor programme" for all school drop-outs.

"And we recruit about 100 Indian youths for the programme annually. Did the previous Barisan Nasional state government conduct such programmes for the Indians?" asked Jayakumar.

Citing another example, Jayakumar said that the state government was spending hundreds of thousands just to provide school bus subsidies for students who come from the low-income group.
"And in my constituency alone, about 100 Indian students are benefiting from this programme," he said.

The state, Jayakumar added, had also provided some RM500,000 to assist low-income Selangor people who are in need of medical assistance such as cataract operations and dialysis.

Jayakumar called on Samy to learn proper management skills rather than indulging in petty politics.
"In Pakatan, we strive to promote good governance which would benefit everyone irrespective of their race and religion.

"And that's why we managed to have a surplus of about RM400 million last year which can be channelled to benefit all people in Selangor," said Jayakumar.
Corrupt- and scandal-free
He challenged Samy to name the Indians who were placed in high positions at GLCs such as Sime Darby, Tenaga Nasional Bhd and Pos Malaysia.

"And how many Indian directors-general are there in the ministries? Can Samy tell me?" asked Jayakumar.

Echoing Jayakumar's sentiments, Kota Alam Shah assemblyman M Manoharan said the Selangor government was more focused on improving the quality of lives of all in the state.

Instead of looking into racial barriers, Manoharan said it was more important for the state government to be corrupt- and scandal-free.

As for the Indian community, he said three-quarters of his constituents had benefited from the state's Jom Shopping programme for senior citizens, especially the Indians.

The DAP lawmaker also said the state had provided free tuition classes for all – mostly poor Indian students – in the state and for his area.

On allegations that an Indian women was by-passed to the post of Selangor library director, Manoharan said he was in the dark over the matter as he was under ISA detention then.

"But I feel the government had decided on the best person for the job and the new director is very motivated. I know this because I'm also a director there," he said.

Selain itu, puluhan penyokong juga turut hadir memakai t-shirt dan banner tertera kata-kata sokongan demi menegakkan keadilan dalam perbicaraan kes kematian mendiang Beng Hock.

Beng Hock ditemui mati pada 16 Julai 2009 di koridor tingkat 5 Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam selepas hadir memberi keterangan di Pejabat Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) yang terletak di tingkat 14 bangunan berkenaan.

Respon kepada Cina pura-pura sokong PAS

Posted: 02 Feb 2012 04:34 AM PST

Berikut adalah respon dari Mr. Ir Oon Eng Hock, berkaitan tulisan Cina pura-pura sokong Pas yang disiarkan oleh akhbar Sinar Harian semalam

Di mana saja rakyat jelata ada, tak kira bangsa atau agama, di sana mereka berhasrat meningkatkan taraf hidup mereka.  Mana parti politik yang boleh menggunakan kuasanya memakai sumber tanah untuk memanfaatkan rakyat, parti politik itulah yang akan dapat sokongan tetap dari rakyat.

Banyak rakyat kaum Tionghua berbagai lapisan masyarakat berasa bosan dengan MCA sekongkol dengan UMNO sewenang-wenang merompak harta negara untuk kepentingan kelompok elit saja, dan menafikan rakyat jelata menikmati kekayaan negara selaras dengan tuntutan keadilan sosial dan hak asasi manusia.

In working with the Chinese community to increase political consciousness, there is no doubt that many Chinese want change from the corrupt and racist BN regime.  For many years, the news of the progress achieved by the Kelantan PAS government despite no assistance from the Federal BN government has been kept away from the public, but with the correct policies adopted by PAS in striving for racial harmony, in respecting the rights of non-Muslims to practise their culture and religion, and the simple lifestyle of the people-centric PAS leadership, plus the Internet, there is now more knowledge of what is really happening.  With this awareness, more Chinese are opening their eyes and increasing their support for PAS.  

This support is genuinely based on mutual respect for people of all races and religions who want to see an end to racial politics of the type practised by MCA and UMNO.  We all want to unite to develop this country for the benefit of the rakyat.  This is the New Politics which the MCA fail to recognise.

The largest Buddhist statue in Malaysia is in Tumpat, Kelantan, built in the year 2000.  Lion dances are staged by the Chinese community in Kelantan up till this day.  You can have a hearty meal with delicious pork dishes in a nice Chinese restaurant in Jalan Kebun Sultan, Kota Bharu.  

Or indulge in Bak Kut Teh in a coffee shop along the same street.  Perhaps our Tourism Minister can help to publicise these attractions to get more Malaysians to visit Kelantan, instead of complaining about what PAS is telling Malaysians to eat this and that, or don't eat this and that.

But she is not likely to do such a dangerous thing because when more Chinese go to Kelantan and learn the truth, this will only draw their support away from MCA/BN to PAS and Pakatan Rakyat.

The support of the Chinese for Nizar Jamaludin in the Bukit Gantang by-election was solid because of what he had done in converting land titles for the Chinese occupying TOL land in the New Villages.  Land is the basis of livelihood for the people in the New Villages.  

Even MCA's Dr. Ting Chew Peh commented that what MCA could not achieve in 50 years, PAS had done in a few months.  We saw this support among the Chinese even in the villages of Kampung Sungai Rotan and Kampung Kuala Sepetang who were openly flying PAS flags and waving PAS fans.

The Chinese who participated in Berseh 2.0 saw for themselves the actions of the PAS Unit Amal in protecting them from the attacks of the police.  PAS treats the Chinese during the demonstration as fellow fighters, and respects them as "sahabat seperjuangan" who are willing to face the same risks in the struggle for free and fair elections.  The Chinese were impressed and wrote about this on the Internet, how this has increased their confidence in PAS.

The Hudud issue is used by MCA to frighten the Chinese by telling them that it will be "potong atas, potong bawah", but with proper explanation of what Hudud is really all about, Chinese are beginning to get rid of the poison fed to them by the mainstream media.  

Chinese who are honest, sincere, don't steal or cheat on their wives have no need to be scared of Hudud.  Orang Tionghua yang jujur, ikhlas, tidak curi dan tidak berzinah tidak akan takut terhadap Hudud.  No matter whether the Chinese is in DAP, PKR or PAS.  

In any case, Hudud is for Muslims only, including, of course Chinese Muslims.  But some non-Muslim Chinese, after understanding Hudud, would like to see Hudud used even against non-Muslim MCA to punish them for their corruption and sexual escapades.

With the lack of fairness by the BN Federal government in not allocating public funds to the states ruled by Pakatan Rakyat, it is not easy for those states to simply give money for populist policies, such as to every Chinese school.  

But the Chinese who are economically better off and patriotic to Malaysia will understand this situation and are ever willing to donate their energies and their money to help their fellow countrymen in PAS who have fought against the injustices of the BN government for more than 50 years.  

Malaysian Chinese patriots will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them in Dewan Himpunan Penyokong PAS to fight to build a better Malaysia, to be ruled in fairness and justice by honest and sincere Malaysian leaders who will not invoke differences of ethnicity and faith to divide Malaysians.

With honest government in place which has the interests of the rakyat at heart, patriotic Chinese will give of their expertise in business and the professions to help their less fortunate Malaysian brethren to improve their lives, in an environment of "prosper thy neighbour".

There is no need for PAS to print money to help the rakyat.  There is enough wealth from the natural resources of our beloved country, such as the oil and gas which is extracted even off the coast of Kelantan but not landed in Bachok, Kelantan but instead diverted to Songkhla in Thailand.  

If all of this wealth is used for the benefit of the rakyat and not siphoned off through corruption and waste by MCA/BN, there is enough to help all deserving Malaysian children to get a decent education, to equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to develop the nation, to make them loyal and responsible citizens.  This will happen when Pakatan Rakyat takes over Putrajaya.  Those Chinese who know this will happen will give their undying support to PAS, PKR and DAP in the coming PRU13.

The Election Commission Should Recognise that the Local Government Elections Act 1960 (Act 473) Has Been Revised in 1991 and Constitutes the Sole and Only Proper Law Relating to the Election of Local Councillors(en/cn)

Posted: 01 Feb 2012 08:43 PM PST

The Election Commission (EC) should recognise that the Local Government Elections Act 1960 (Act 473) has been revised in 1991 and constitutes the sole and only proper law relating to the election of local councillors. For this reason, the Penang state government is taking a progressive step-by-step approach towards removing all legal impediments preventing the conduct of local government elections by the EC.

One of the steps that is being taken is the instruction by the Penang State Government to the Penang State Legal Adviser to issue a gazette notification exempting local authorities in Penang from section 15 of the Local Government Act 1976 as a precursor to seeking a court declaration to compel the Election Commission to conduct local government elections.

The EC Chairman, Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof, has said that he is confused by the Penang State Government's intention to bring to the Courts the issue of the State's right to ask the Election Commission to conduct local government elections to the local authorities in Penang. On 4 March 2010, I wrote to the Election Commission asking it to conduct local government elections to the MPPP and MPSP exercising the state powers under Article 113(4) of the Federal Constitution, but the Election Commission also refused. Article 113(4) states,
"Federal or State law may authorise the Election Commission to conduct election other than those referred to in Clause (1)."
On 12 March 2010, I also wrote to the Prime Minister offering to meet with him to discuss the State Government’s position but again received no response.

I can confirm that the EC Chairman wrote a long letter to me on 23 March 2010 setting out the Federal Government's claim that local government elections are not possible because section 15 of the Local Government Act 1976 (Act 171) had caused the Local Government Elections Act to be of no force and effect. This is the very reason why the state government is gazetting notification exempting local authorities in Penang from section 15 of the Local Government Act 1976

The EC Chairman and the Federal Government have also sidestepped the crux of this issue, namely that the Local Government Elections Act was never repealed and was in fact revised in 1991. According to section 10(2) of the Revision of Laws Act 1968 (Act 1), a revised law "shall be deemed to be and shall be without any question whatsoever in all courts and for all purposes whatsoever the sole and only proper law in respect of matters included in it and in force on that date".

Clearly the Local Government Elections Act clearly authorises the EC to conduct elections to local authorities in Malaysia. It is therefore perplexing that the EC Chairman continues to refuse to conduct local government elections in Penang. As the EC is the only legal authority that is empowered to conduct local government elections, the Penang state government has no choice but to seek a court declaration to compel the EC to abide and obey the Penang state government's directives.

By Refusing To Criticise The Prime Minister’s Refusal To Condemn Perkasa For Distributing “White Pows” And Not Acting Against MCA Seputih Division Committee Member Dr Tiew Chew Ming, Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek Can No Longer Hide MCA’s Links And UMNO’s Open Support With Perkasa.(en/cn)

Posted: 01 Feb 2012 06:39 PM PST

By refusing to criticise the refusal of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to condemn Perkasa for distributing "White Pows" and not taking action against MCA Seputih Division Committee Member Dr Tiew Chew Ming, MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek can no longer hide MCA's links and UMNO's open support for Perkasa. What is the use of condemning the racist Perkasa when Chua should also have asked why the Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib did not condemn Perkasa for blatantly trampling over the sensitivities of the Chinese community by distributing white instead of red ang pau during Chinese New Year?

Clearly the Prime Minister's refusal to condemn Perkasa only proves UMNO's open support for Perkasa racist objectives in creating their own version of "Asian Apartheid" by wanting to divide Malaysians into favoured "first-class" and discriminated "second-class" citizens. MCA is equally guilty by failing to act sternly against its Sri Desa Branch Chairman and Seputeh division committee member Dr Tiew Chew Ming, who has been exposed as openly assisting Perkasa by ferrying elderly citizens to Perkasa's event and spoke publicly in defense of Perkasa.

Such open linkages with Perkasa by UMNO and MCA contrast with the openness of PAS in respecting the religious and cultural sensitivities of the Chinese community. PAS leaders not only distributed ang pau, mandarin oranges and Chinese New Year cards to market traders but also to a pork seller, with his pork openly displayed. Will UMNO leader have a green lion dance performance or do what PAS leaders have done?

The time for racist parties like UMNO and MCA is over. Malaysians regardless of race must reject not only extremist Perkasa and Utusan Malaysia but also UMNO and MCA, that has divided the people for 55 years and robbed the country of trillions of ringgit by relying on racial rhetoric.

Star had a front-page report yesterday quoting Customs deputy director-general Datuk Zainul Abidin Taib as saying that 7 high-tech cash scanners capable of detecting bank notes in luggage are to be installed at all entry and exit points in the country to curb the illegal outflow of money that has amounted to bilions of ringgit. US-based watchdog group Global Financial Integrity in its annual report said Malaysia lost RM150bil in illegal outflow of cash in 2009.

Malaysia was the fourth highest among developing nations, losing US$338bil (RM1.08trillion or 1,077 billion) between 2000 and 2009. Are we to lose another trillion ringgit or go bankrupt first before realising that we are being distracted from fighting corruption by supporting extremists and racists?

马来西亚在2000年至2009年间损失了10兆7700 亿令吉,是资金非法外流第四多的国家。难道我们还要等到损失另一个1兆令吉或破产,我们才发现反贪工作因支持极端及种族主义而转移视线,?

Dakwaan bahawa pembeli projek perumahan kos rendah di Jalan Pluto, Seksyen U5, Shah Alam perlu menambah pembayaran atau "top-up" sehingga RM30,000 jika mahu rumah mereka disiapkan adalah tidak benar.

Kerajaan Negeri Selangor tidak akan membenarkan mana-mana pemaju menaikkan harga rumah kos rendah dengan sewenang-wenangnya walaupun ia melibatkan projek terbengkalai.

Harga rumah kos rendah dikawal oleh Kerajaan Negeri iaitu RM42,000 sebuah. Tetapi RM35,000 pula untuk peneroka bandar (setinggan) di mana subsidi RM7,000 dibayar oleh pemilik tanah tapak rumah peneroka bandar tersebut.

Pembeli-pembeli projek perumahan itu telah dijanjikan rumah sejak 1993 di zaman Barisan Nasional mentadbir Selangor. Walau bagaimanapun projek tersebut telah terbengkalai dan hanya dalam tahun 2010 ketika pentadbiran Pakatan Rakyat pemaju baru telah dengan secara rasmi mengambil alih. 

Pengambil alihan projek ini oleh pemaju baru dari pemaju lama adalah hasil rundingan di antara kedua-dua pihak. Kerajaan Negeri tidak pernah memaksa mana-mana pemaju projek terbengkalai menerima pemaju baru.

Di dalam pembentangan kepada YAB Dato Menteri Besar pada bulan Disember 2010, pemaju baru projek ini telah diberitahu bahawa mereka tidak dibenarkan sama sekali menaikkan harga rumah kos rendah. Malah mereka telah diarah untuk menanggung subsidi RM7,000 bagi setiap peneroka bandar.

Tetapi pemaju dibenarkan menukar 2 dari 6 blok rumah kos rendah yang belum dijual kepada rumah mampu milik supaya mereka dapat membiayai kos membaikpulih dan kos subsidi RM7,000 itu.

Sejak itu Kerajaan Negeri telah memantau kemajuan projek ini dari masa ke semasa.

Adalah diharapkan mereka yang mempolitikkan pelaksanaan projek ini agar berhenti dari melakukannya. Projek ini telah bertahun-tahun terbengkalai di bawah Barisan Nasional. Mereka telah gagal menyelesaikan masalah ini ketika Selangor di bawah pentadbiran mereka tetapi sekarang cuba berlagak seperti wira yang akan membantu rakyat.
