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.

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.

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。





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。









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。

PRU14: Ambil alih Putrajaya dan tawan Sabah

Posted: 09 Jun 2013 12:00 AM PDT

30 Rejab 1434 H. [MOD] -

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

Posted: 08 Jun 2013 09:46 PM PDT

30 Rejab 1434 H. [MOD] -

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

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.

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

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.
