MB: Penstrukturan Air Dijangka Selesai September

Posted: 26 Jun 2013 05:34 AM PDT

SHAH ALAM 26 JUN : Kerajaan Negeri menjangkakan penstrukturan semula industri air di Selangor akan selesai pada September tahun ini.

Ini berikutan kesediaan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak bekerjasama dengan Kerajaan Negeri bagi menyelesaikan isu berkenaan seperti yang dikehendaki Akta Industri Perkhidmatan Air 2006 (WSIA 2006).

Sehubungan itu, Menteri Besar, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim berkata, Najib menyatakan kesediaannya untuk berbincang dan meminta Menteri Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air, Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili untuk mengadakan perbincangan dalam masa terdekat.

"Dalam sepucuk surat bertarikh 19 Jun, Perdana Menteri menyatakan bahawa beliau sangat terbuka dan bersedia berbincang dengan Kerajaan Negeri bagi menyelesaikan penstrukturan semula perkhidmatan bekalan air," katanya dalam satu kenyataan media hari ini.

Dalam pada itu, proses penstrukturan semula industri air dimulakan oleh Kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat pada tahun 2011 sebagai usaha mengambilalih operasi bekalan, rawatan dan pengedaran daripada empat syarikat swasta.

Sebelum ini, beberapa siri perbincangan bersama mantan Menteri Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air, Datuk Seri Peter Chin serta beberapa pegawai kementerian gagal mencapai persetujuan bersama.

Menurut Abdul Khalid, Kerajaan Negeri ketika ini sedang menyiapkan deraf pengambilalihan syarikat konsesi seperti terma dan syarat yang ditetapkan WSIA 2006.

"Kita juga menyiapkan deraf berkenaan tanggungjawab dan bidang kuasa semua pihak termasuk Perbadanan Kementerian Kewangan (MOFIncorp), Perbadanan Aset Air Berhad (PAAB) dan syarikat-syarikat konsesi," ujarnya lagi.

Abdul Khalid berkata, Najib diharap mendapat mesej jelas tentang kesungguhan dan komitmen Kerajaan Negeri untuk menyelesaikan penstrukturan semula air demi kepentingan rakyat di Selangor, Kuala Lumpur dan Putrajaya.

Judge in Favour of IPCMC

Posted: 26 Jun 2013 05:34 AM PDT

PETALING JAYA: Kuala Lumpur High Court judge VT Singham today called for the setting-up of the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) due to the sharp rise in custodial violence.

He made the call while delivering his judgment on a civil suit filed against the government by the family of A Kugan who died while in police custody four years ago.

Singham said recommendations of the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to form the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) must be activated as soon as possible.

"This is to assure all concerned members of society that an independent agency is looking into the matter without any influence from police officers," he said.

"There is justification to protect the interests of those taken into police custody. If abuse of power and the unlawful act is not checked, people will lose faith in the enforcing machinery," he said.

He added that no matter how "faithfully" the local police investigated cases, it would still lack credibility when it came to probing its own men.

At a press conference after the verdict was delivered, Padang Serai MP N Surendran said he would raise the matter during the King's debate speech in Parliament.

Earlier today, Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi told the Parliament that the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (EAIC) was set up in line with the proposal made under the RCI.

He said this in response to PKR Johari Abdul's question on why the government was reluctant to set up the IPCMC, a proposal which came out of the same RCI.

Zahid replied by saying that the EAIC was a better solution to investigate misconduct by the police or any other enforcement agency as the IPCMC had some "overlapping" power with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

He added the IPCMC also runs contrary to the Extra Territorial Offences Act 1973.

IPCMC was the last part in the proposal to make improvements to the police submitted by the Special Commission to Enhance The Operation And Management Of The Royal Malaysian Police chaired by former Chief Justice Tun Mohamed Dzaiddin Abdullah, who proposed that the body used the models of the Independent Police Complaint Commission (IPCC) of the United Kingdom and the police monitoring bodies found in New South Wales and Queensland, Australia, and Hong Kong.

Mahkamah Putuskan KPN Bertanggungjawab Terhadap Kematian Kugan

Posted: 26 Jun 2013 05:34 AM PDT

Ketua Polis Negara (KPN), Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar  dipertanggungjawabkan ke atas kematian A. Kugan ketika berada dalam tahanan polis, kerana didera secara fizikal semasa soalsiasat polis empat tahun lalu, Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur memutuskan hari ini.

Hakim Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur Datuk V. T. Singham mengatakan, Khalid yang pada ketika itu merupakan ketua polis Selangor, cuai untuk memastikan keselamatan tahanan dalam kes ini.

Keputusan hakim ini dijangkakan akan membuka ruang kepada lebih banyak saman kepada pihak polis.

Singham, dalam membenarkan saman kecuaian itu berkata, beliau juga percaya kecederaan yang berlaku ke atas Kugan tidak mungkin dilakukan oleh seorang pegawai.

"Mahkamah juga mendapati beberapa percanggahan ketara antara Khalid dan lain-lain saksi berkenaan dengan penyiasatan ke kematian si mati," katanya.

"Tiada seorang pun dalam mana-mana kedudukan atau pangkat apabila memberi keterangan di mahkamah mengambil mudah mahkamah ini dan cuba menutup kebenaran untuk melarikan diri."

Singham juga memuji peguam hak asasi manusia, N. Surendran yang membawa kes ini dan membantu untuk bedah siasat kedua dilakukan.

"Jika tidak kerana dia, perkara itu telah disapu di bawah karpet."

Beliau juga berkata terdapat keperluan segera untuk mempertimbangkan cadangan suruhanjaya diraja itu dalam menubuhkan Suruhanjaya Bebas Aduan dan Salah Laku Polis (IPCMC) kerana peningkatan kematian dalam tahanan.

Singham juga memberikan pampasan sebanyak RM851,700 kepada N. Indra di atas serangan terhadap Kugan, penahanan salah, kecuaian dan pampasan kecederaan dan penderitaan.

Keluarga Kugan telah memfailkan tuntutan RM100 juta terhadap polis dan kerajaan, secara spesifiknya menamakan Khalid, mendakwa beliau cuba menyembunyikan punca kematian Kugan.

Ibu Kugan, N. Indra menamakan salah seorang pegawai penyiasat mangsa, bekas anggota polis V. Navindran sebagai salah satu lagi defendan.

Ibunya mendakwa defendan-defendan gagal untuk memastikan keselamatan, kesihatan dan kebajikan Kugan semasa berada dalam tahanan polis. Kugan yang pada ketika itu berumur 22 tahun, ditahan di Puchong pada 14 Januari 2009, satu malam di lokap balai polis Puchong Jaya sebelum polis mendapatkan perintah reman.

Beliau kemudiannya dibawa ke balai polis Taipan USJ, Subang Jaya dua hari kemudian untuk disoal siasat. Akan tetapi, empat hari kemudian, beliau ditemui mati.

Navindran merupakan satu-satunya orang yang dipertanggungjawabkan untuk kematian Kugan.  Beliau didapati bersalah dan dijatuhkan hukuman penjara tiga tahun. Beliau kini merayu di mahkamah berhubung hukuman itu.

Haze displays malaise

Posted: 26 Jun 2013 02:32 AM PDT

Malaysiakini

If the world needed further proof that Malaysia's BN regime preys while the rakyat pays, it's this latest outbreak of so-called haze.

NONEBehind its smoke-screens and shadow-plays, this 'crooked' government, like its counterpart in Indonesia, couldn't give a damn about the well-being of its citizens as long as its members and cronies are free to continue in their corrupt and otherwise criminal ways.

In fact these crooks are so contemptuous of the people that the Indonesian Environment Minister, Balthasar Kambuaya, had the gall to initially accuse Singaporeans of being "cry-babies" for complaining of the suffocating smoke.

But of course what Singaporeans, Malaysians and a great many Indonesians are actually choking on are the noxious clouds of corporate and official corruption.

The whole world knows, and has for years, that the haze is not just the product of 'burning-off' by a ragtag bunch of small farmers, but wholesale illegal clearance of what's left of Sumatra's peat forests by the managements of massive palm-oil plantations.

And that many of these environmental vandals are so-called government-linked corporations which the respective ruling regimes involved are coy about naming because they and their cronies are the principal beneficiaries.

Thus the newly and allegedly fraudulently 'elected' Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has responded to the haze by retreating into an apparent daze, leaving his so-called Natural Resources and Environment Minister G Palanivel, to try and quell the bad-publicity blaze – which Palanivel finally did after dithering for days, but only fanned the flames by doing it on Facebook instead of facing the people in person.

Cough-up names, gov’t told

With Najib himself later finally emerging from his strategic daze, or perhaps overseas holidays away from the haze, to emit one of his customary smoke-and-mirrors remarks to the effect that "all ministries and agencies involved in haze disaster management at the federal, state and district levels must plan and take the needed measures to ensure safety and public health is protected."

NONEAnd according to BN mouthpiece 'news' agency Bernama, he added that "the guidelines on the actions to take to manage a haze disaster were already in place and that all relevant agencies must discharge their duties accordingly."

In other words, it was nothing but Najib's customary discharge of gusts of hot air, as to "plan" and "take measures" to protect public health and safety would require the naming, shaming and prosecution the many corrupt BN-crony companies responsible for the people's annual choke on their smoke.

Of course the governments of Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore all know very well who the culprits are, but are maintaining a breathless silence in order to protect the guilty deny their own complicity in this atrocity.

But the truth may soon emerge from the fog of obfuscation, as there are growing calls for the BN regime to cough-up the names of the companies causing the haze.

The most definite of these demands to date has come from Malaysian NGO Memacu Arus Perjuangan (MAP), whose deputy president Ally Harzan Hashim has given Environment Minister Palanivel a 48-hour ultimatum to name the Malaysian companies involved in the ongoing haze crisis, or else.

According to Malaysiakini, a lawyer for MAP, Ahmad Jufliz Faiza, has said that if the minister fails to reveal the name of the offending companies, the group intends to bring the government to court for failing in its duty of care to Malaysian citizens.

Another MAP lawyer, Patrick Dass, "questioned whether the government had vested interests in the companies involved, judging from its inaction although the haze has been a recurring problem for about 15 years."

Ally Harzan was quoted as saying that the MAP has "several suspects," and is working with Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM) and environmental NGOs in Singapore and Indonesia for confirmation on which companies are involved.

And Ahmad Jufliz added that "we know the names of the companies, but we have to confirm this. That is why we request the government through the minister to give us the names, while we are also liaising with other NGOs to get their names."

BN regime ‘failed to deliver’

Meanwhile, Malaysian Health Minister Dr S Subramaniam has stated that Indonesia must act quickly against those responsible for the haze situation even if it involves Malaysian companies," but added in typically hazy BN fashion that there is "no evidence" of the involvement of such Malaysian involvement.

And the ever-BN-friendly 'news' agency Bernama has reported that the Association of Plantation Investors of Malaysia in Indonesia (Apimi) has denied that any Malaysian-owned companies are involved in the haze situation.

Though there must be very few Malaysians remaining who are prepared to take any BN-connected spokesperson at his or her word, given that the regime has denied any involvement in literally countless scandals from all the massive financial and electoral frauds that have occurred under its watch to the hundreds of suspicious deaths suffered at the hands of its police and anti-corruption commission (MACC).

The regime has also conspicuously failed to deliver on a single, solitary one of Najib's promises to "transform" Malaysia into the "world's best democracy" with "zero tolerance of corruption" and fair and equitable treatment for all.

NONEAnd despite Najib's alleged eagerness to unite Malaysian society, much has been made lately both by him and other BN mouthpieces likeUtusan Malaysiaand former Court of Appeal Judge Mohd Noor Abdullah of the alleged "betrayal" of the Malays by Chinese Malaysians who voted for the opposition in the recent general election.

A claim that is an attempted diversion from the fact that it is BN itself that is the malaise that betrays Malaysians of all races and creeds, including and even especially Malays, as both evidenced and symbolised year after year after year by this accursed, killer haze.

Can Umno’s ‘over-dominance’ be broken? Is the Pakatan up to the game?

Posted: 25 Jun 2013 10:06 PM PDT

Malaysia-Chronicle

Many governments in the world have established some sort of democracy and Malaysia has her own peculiar version which cannot be branded with any particular name.

It is not even a Malaysian version of democracy per se but purely and totally – it is UMNO's own version of democracy. And sad to say, Prime Minister Najib Razak’s party knows little about the subject, hence the great controversies and boorish clownishness.

What UMNO has done to "democracy" is not to practice it but to institutionalize the facades of democracy, including regular multiparty elections to give the appearance of being a democratic country. These multiparty elections have never been free or fair, resulting in the formation of an authoritarian government.

Many people – within and outside Malaysia – may take these democratic facades for real. Many others, however, do not. More than anyone, the Opposition parties and candidates here who have suffered the worst consequences of the cheating know very well that the present government is only playing a game and not practicing legitimate democracy or democratic elections.

A new era of adversity where courage must be the first quality

It is time to call a spade a spade. It is time for those in the Opposition who say‘but what can we do’ to stand aside and make way for people with stronger gumption. For example, you may have been brave in the past and went to jail for so and so, but are you brave anymore – NOW? Or has your gut grown thick and fat like those in the UMNO-BN?

Such a question may seem rude, but it is a very legitimate one for Malaysian voters to ask. As we often slam the Umno-BN, perhaps it is now timely to cast the spotlight on the Pakatan and what does it have to offer Malaysians in the face of a rabid Umno-BN, even more arrogant and dangerous now that it has ‘won’ another 5 years in power.

Boils must be pricked and pus must be expelled otherwise gains made in the past few years will be lost and we become like the past generations – silent because we were afraid when we came face to face with ‘danger’!

Old dogs and new tricks

Lim Kit Siang, Karpal Singh and Hadi Awang are towering figures in the Opposition and have been so for decades. With all due respect, when it comes to broken electoral promises, surely these three would have to account for the most number since they have never been able to wrest the federal government and thereby implement their dreams and visions for the people. Looking at the situation objectively, theirs is actually a pretty horrendous track record. 30, 40 or perhaps even 50 years of not being able to realize their goal. Why should Malaysians, if they seriously want change, continue to choose these leaders then? These guys could not do it after so many decades, and the chances are, unless they revamp their mindset, Malaysia will continue to be governed by the Umno-BN.

Do Malaysians really want ‘Ubah’? If so, they had better stop wearing rose-tinted glasses and confront the fact that some of their revered leaders have in actual fact never managed to perform at all. The question begs – did Umno-BN rule Malaysia since 1957 because they were strong or because the Opposition until 2008 was weak? Malaysians must pick winners, if change is truly what they want. Of course, this is not easy and we could jump from the frying pan into the fire. But we still move – whether forward or backward, there is still motion. Life and strength still flow in our veins and limbs, and with a bit more courage, we can get to our goal. The worse option is to stay comatose, trapped in loss, stuck in defeat.

Pakatan has to continue playing the game but they have to change their game plan. Otherwise, it is tantamount to allowing themselves to be cheated over and over again. And that is a mark of insanity.

It is also a mark of cowardice and bad faith with voters who supported Pakatan because they wanted a change in government. What would help and are really needed most are fresh ideas to be get the county moving forward and not round and round in circles.

The drastic responses from Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim and the Pakatan Rakyat in the immediate aftermath of the recently-concluded 13th general election marks the start of an era to break the impasse and shatter once and for all Umno’s dominance. This is a tack that Pakatan leaders must hammer through and ferociously!

Right direction but not yet there

For the first time in Malaysia’s history, the Opposition had dared to say no. Anwar and Pakatan voiced their rejection of the election results. They mobilized their followers to protest the fraudulent electoral process and its outcomes via the Black 505 rallies. But have Anwar and Pakatan succeeded?

So far, the desired outcome of their actions has not materialized but they must not give up. Umno-BN has still formed the government. On the first day of new Parliament session, Umno-BN continued to cheat with the election of the Speaker. Prime Minister Najib Razak made a laughing stock of himself by forcing his own reps to sign a so-called secret ballot so that all would toe the line and vote a controversial toady back into office.

It was also ironic that as the re-elected Speaker was pompously calling for ‘change’ in his acceptance speech, 32 youth activists were roughed up and arrested by the police just outside Parliament. In other words, nothing has changed. Democracy has not deepened or widened. It may have shrunk even further following GE13.

Meanwhile, the Black 505 rallies seem to have lost steam despite clear evidence of public support. No doubt, the crowds are no longer so large but obviously, if you have attended one or two such ‘ceramahs’, you won’t want to go again unless there are new issues or speeches to hear. So the right medicine is not to dump the rallies but to ask, what new strategies can we apply to keep the public interest intact? Actually, if the crowd size tapers down to sustainable levels, that’s fine because there may be another 5 years to go before the next general election, so don’t throw away this powerful and precious early momentum.

Also, has there been enough ‘outreach’ to all the towns in the country yet? Who is really losing interest here – the Pakatan leaders or the people? Who is feeling the fatigue? Why are there no efforts to galvanize public interest with new issues? Why zero search for new tacks to keep the flame burning? Also, why are only PKR and PAS involved and not DAP?

Does ‘Ubah’ stop with GE13 campaigning? What happens at GE14?

In the May 5 general election, DAP won the most seats with 38 versus PKR’s 30 and PAS’ 21. Most of their wins also came with thumping majorities. But is DAP really so strong? They should not forget that most of their wins came from Chinese-dominated seats which they insisted on and exerted enormous pressure on PKR and PAS to yield to their candidates. The fact is the Chinese are already pro-Opposition and there is no need to ‘convert’ their thinking. Maybe this is also why DAP leaders are reluctant to take risks and get nabbed for attending the Black 505 rallies. Instead some have even behaved like their Umno counterparts and actively contributed to the scaremongering over the event.

Let’s not forget that it is what the voters want that counts, not the DAP, PAS or PKR leadership. The Chinese ardently want change and if they don’t get this from DAP and Pakatan, they will look else where. So scrap the hype and thanksgiving rhetoric. The core electoral promise has already been broken. And to make it worse, it looks like the DAP leaders have no intention to stick their necks out to stop a repeat electoral robbery. It seems they just want to have their 5 years of being a Member of Parliament or state assembly-person. They want to stick to the safe and narrow path, immerse themselves in rhetoric but without carrying the burden of output. If this is so, at GE14, why should Malaysian Chinese vote for them again? They might as well stick with the mousy, greedy and selfish MCA. As for the Malays, it is odd but DAP is to most of them what Umno is to the non-Malays – something that the Pakatan leaders should take note of.

Pulling wool over the people’s eyes: Fighters needed in the Opposition ring

It also seems like Pakatan may be experiencing a dose of ‘over success’ among its ranks. It is obvious that the pretty boy and girls of the Opposition, and a good example of these are in the DAP, seem to care more about the frills and fuss of being in Parliament, no? They certainly seem to hanker  for the high government posts, the power-dressing that befits their double-barelled qualifications, the chauffeur-driven cars and plush-carpeted corridors of power.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with that. Just don’t do it in the political space – especially that which belongs to the Opposition. In the Opposition ring – particularly in a semi-dictatorship like Malaysia -fighters are needed. Really tough ones. So like their counterparts in the MCA, DAP boys and girls should move on to the corporate scene where they can make more money although they won’t enjoy so much fame. But stop wasting the precious 5-year mandates of the people. Do not repeat the non-achievement of the elder leaders and keep Malaysia forever floundering in Umno’s ever-increasingly vicious cycle.

The acid test is simple. There is nothing hazy about this. For example, what is the point of raising motion after motion on the haze? What real or concrete result can Teo Nie Chieng or her rival Wee Ka Siong from MCA achieve here other than a fleeting puff for themselves? Face it, even Singapore strongman Lee Hsien Loong and his dad Lee Kuan Yew are powerless to reduce the haze in their precious republic.

Malaysian Opposition leaders should be honest and ask themselves – do the people want them to keep pointing out corruption case after corruption case, one cheating scam after another, haze year in and year out but at the end of the day be the same powerless people unable to make a real or concrete difference? We see Pakatan leaders at risk of failing in their primary duty, we believe they may lose sight of the main goal because of their desire for the fluff, and a good example is Bakri MP Er Teck Hwa who was apparently so terrified of being left out from Parliament that he broke party line to attend a briefing that was boycotted by the rest of the Opposition.

Really, what is the point of being in the fight if the Opposition is only making the motions of trying to win the federal government. Just yesterday Pakatan could not even stop Najib from cheating again in the secret ballot for the Speaker. And yet some of the Pakatan MPs have brazenly and a tad arrogantly declared their ‘priority’ to ‘solve’ the issue of the haze and to ‘combat’ the even more complex matter of corruption!

Seems to us that all the Umno-BN needs to do is to just threaten arrests, label an issue or event illegal and that’s the last you see of some of these so-called “brave but at the same time kiasu” leaders from the Opposition! We say why should Malaysians vote for ‘kiasu’ leaders at all – be they from the Pakatan or the BN?

Round and round in circles

It takes a lot to be called a hero but what Malaysians need and deserve are heroes in their Opposition. This is the sad fact of politics. So do wake up, Pakatan. Also, wake up Malaysian voters. There is no doubt the so-called drastic responses that Anwar had tried to initiate are vital.

To stay relevant, some in the Pakatan – and they know who they are – must look at new strategies and stop the hot gas and rhetoric to mask their sheer political cowardice – no one is fooled! Look in the mirror and stop tricking themselves and the people. All Tony Puas in this world could never stop the corruption in KLIA2 or in the ministry of defense if they continue to keep their heads buried in the sand!

Instead, the cheating and corruption only increases because as Tony and his Pakatan colleagues including Rafizi Ramli holler out the Umno-BN’s worst secrets, it is not in the least bit scared! Umno-BN leaders don’t care at all because they know – as proven in the past 5 years – that Pakatan can blow the whistle as much as they like but they can’t do anything more than that. So who wins then, and who loses? The answer is pretty obvious – Umno-BN gets the illicit cash, Pakatan gets the publicity, the people lose.

Really, the time has come to stop being ‘clever children’. Political prodigies are a waste of time. Malaysia is near bankruptcy and no one has time for ‘smart-alec’ stories that yield no concrete results in the end.

So what can Pakatan do?

Pakatan will have to go back to basics and try to learn from the examples of other countries that managed to shake off the shackles of political dictatorships.

Let’s have a quick look at just one. Let’s go to South America and take a look at Brazil where the citizens have marched on the streets, blocked roads and halted traffic in more than a half-dozen cities, including Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Brasilia, as well as swarming past the Congress and Presidential Palace  because of a hike in transport fares from 3.00 to 3.20.

We highlight this example because like in Malaysia, the ruling politicians in Brazil only defend their own interests, wasting public funds and unlawfully enriching themselves while the various law enforcement officials are known to be equally as corrupt. However, the economy is active. Money is easy to earn and the ordinary people there can still manage to get a small slice of the economic pie. Hence, it is easy to close an eye on the new government which had inherited the sound economy from ex-President Lula. But the new government, like Najib’s, has failed to sustain real or developmental growth and has to keep on spending without having priorities in order to hide the truth from the people.

If the Brazil protests were just about transport fares, few would be taking notice. But the fare increase was merely the last straw –there were so many issues  that had outraged the Brazilians. Ultimately, it all boils down to "their dissatisfaction and total disbelief in politicians." This was why the protest became so massive – enough to pressure a real solution, if not a complete change in government.

Sense of urgency vital

Street protests are not the only way. Sometimes, street demos are counter-productive because they make the ruling regime more authoritarian, resolute, vigilant and inventive in maintaining the status quo. Unless massive enough, street demonstrations are seldom enough to constitute a serious threat to the regime’s survival.

At the moment, the Black 505 peaceful gatherings are not a threat and cannot spark any immediate governmental changes. But they sure make a helluva  statement. And with the right approach and development, Black 505 can be used to harness enormous public support plus an all-important sense of urgency that is still sorely lacking despite Malaysia being in a really precarious position – socially, democratically and economically.

The lesson to take home from the Brazilian example is that the focus of their protests was on “collective grievances", not just about transport fares. For the Black 505 gatherings here, the focus was on the "common grievances" suffered by voters due to the lack electoral reforms and the frauds perpetrated during the election. The scope of Black 505 can easily be expanded because the chest of wrongdoings of the UMNO-BN is too deep and way too wide.

And another key point is that the Black 505 must retain its core feature of being a peaceful gathering. Given the amiable nature of the Malaysian people plus the good track of the rallies held so far, this should not be beyond the organizers.

Mass civil pressure exerted peacefully, with dignity and regularly can achieve dramatic results. There is no need for the violence of the Arab uprisings to bring about change here. All it takes is for Malaysians to keep repeating their demands to the government in a very VISIBLE way – stop the nonsense. Enough is enough!

How to fight a ‘law unto itself’

In Malaysia, where Umno is dominant, it is almost impossible to change the government through the ballot box because of the past gerrymandering by unscrupulous people including Mahathir Mohamad and even Abdullah Badawi.

However, the Umno legacy of "collective grievances" inflicted onto the rest of the country may in the end be its own undoing. This is the crucial common denominator that unites 51% of Malaysians against them.

The second tie is the social media network that helped to communicate down the line the latest developments and happenings in the Opposition, uniting it with the people of the county and the rest of the world.

Without freedom of speech and a free press, the Umno-BN government could take any action or make any laws it wants unobserved by its own people and the outside world.

It is ironic that in GE13, Pakatan has won 7 more seats and taken 51% of the popular vote while Umno-BN has slid further. Yet over the next 5 years, the going will be tougher for Pakatan than for Umno-BN.

The call is very clear for greater courage from the Pakatan. It not yet time for it to rest on its laurels and to ‘enjoy’ the fruits of its hard work yet. Otherwise, Malaysians voters will dump Pakatan in GE14 for not doing enough to fulfill their primary request – which is to take over the federal government and make real, broad-based, structural reforms to save this country.

The test before the Pakatan MPs as they doll themselves up to take their oaths at Parliament is far greater than for Umno-BN, which by now is practically a law unto itself and therefore lawless. Umno leaders have managed to get away scot-free despite all the outrageous tricks and stunts they pulled the past 5 years.

So Pakatan MPs, especially the ‘boys and girls’, please get savvy and learn ‘guerrilla warfare’ real fast because you will now be fighting a completely lawless and amoral entity.

Pemandu Bas Semakin Biadap

Posted: 25 Jun 2013 06:57 PM PDT




Aduan Rakyat 25 Jun 2013 aduanrakyat.com.my

Disebabkan kadar tambang murah daripada syarikat penerbangan sejak akhir-akhir ini, saya tertanya-tanya bagaimana syarikat perkhidmatan bas ekspress terus bertapak pada masa ini. Pada jangkaan saya, sudah tentu pihak perkhidmatan bas telah menaiktaraf servis mereka terhadap pelanggan dan juga meningkatkan ketepatan masa bertolak. Dalam minda saya juga, sudah tentu penumpang bas akan mendapat layanan mesra daripda pemandu selain kualiti dan ketepatan masa terjamin.

Disebabkan teka-teki yang bermain di sudut minda saya, setelah hampir 5 tahun tidak menaiki bas, saya mengambil keputusan untuk menaiki bas daripada Sungai Nibong, Pulau Pinang ke KL Central, jam 10.30 malam pada hari Rabu yang lalu bersamaan dengan 19 Jun 2013, saya telah memilih bas Mayang Sari Express.

Jangkaan saya meleset apabila mendengar pemandu bas tersebut En. Ali (bukan nama sebenar) tidak mahu menurunkan pelanggan ke KL Central, walaupun setelah dipujuk oleh penjual tiket tersebut, pemandu tersebut tetap berdegil dan mengatakan beliau hanya akan turunkan penumpang di Pudu dan menyatakan bahawa perkhidmatan bas tersebut ke KL Central telah lama ditamatkan.

Justeru itu, penjual tiket tersebut cuba untuk berbincang dengan pemandu bas yang lain, yang akan menurunkan penumpang mereka di KL Central. Akhirnya penjual tiket tersebut dapat meyakinkan Ali supaya menurunkan penumpang di Perhentian Simpang Pulai untuk menaiki bas lain ke KL Sentral.

Namun sebelum bertolak Ali menempik dengan penuh biadap sekali kepada penumpangnya di dalam bas "Jangan makan dalam bas! Nanti bau makanan masuk dalam air-cond, air-cond rosak! Bodoh sungguh lah manusia ni!!!" tempiknya.

Saya hanya mampu beristighfar melihat telatah beliau yang sungguh angkuh dan kurang ajar. Dalam hati hendak saja saya katakan, 'jika tidak kerana ada penumpang yang bodoh ini, mungkin En. Ali tiada pekerjaan'. Namun disebabkan kelakar mendengar beliau menyatakan bau makanan akan merosakkan air-cond, saya senyum sendiri sahaja.

Walaupun bertolak 20 minit lambat, bas kami tiba di Pudu tepat jam 3.00 pagi. Sekali lagi apa yang dijanjikan oleh Ali kepada penjual tiket tersebut tidak dikotakan, beliau meneruskan perjalanan tanpa henti terus ke Stesen Pudu. Dengan hanya melaungkan "KL! Kuala Lumpur! KL!, bas ini akan gerak terus ke Johor dan tak singgah mana- mana hentian di KL lagi! Sapa tak turun, tinggai!".

Dalam fikiran saya, bagaimanakah keadaan bas yang menunggu di Perhentian Simpang Pulai? Kedua, sepatunya beliau telah memaklumkan lebih awal kepada penumpang yang bas ini tidak akan singgah di mana-mana hentian dan tidak akan singgah di KL Central, hentian terakhir adalah di Pudu.

Saya turun dengan hati yang hampa kerana sayalah salah seorang penumpang yang sepatutnya turun di KL Central.

Hal ini menjadikan saya teringin untuk mengkaji keadaan di bas lain. Saya mengambil bas Seasons Express pada hari Sabtu (21 Jun 2013), jam 6.30 petang. Bas ini akan bertolak dari Pudu ke Sungai Nibong, Pulau Pinang dan dipandu oleh En. Mahmud (bukan nama sebenar).

Saya merasa lega apabila mendapati bas tersebut telah berada di Platform, 5 minit awal. Namun saya mula rasa tertekan apabila, setengah jam berikutnya bas masih tidak bertolak sehingga pelanggan yang duduk di sebelah saya mula merungut atas kelewatan tersebut.

Setelah menunggu hampir 45 minit, barulah bas tersebut bergerak, mungkin pihak syarikat cuba memenuhkan penumpang sehingga membiarkan pelanggan terpaksa menunggu sehingga hampir satu jam.

Tidak ada apa-apa layanan biadap daripada Mahmud selain mengingatkan penumpang- penumpang supaya tidak makan di dalam bas dengan nada sedikit tegas, namun masih menjaga adap beliau. Sehinggalah bas tersebut berhenti di Perhentian MYDIN Mall, pelanggan dikejutkan dengan suara Mahmud "Saya bagi masa setengah jam saja, lambat tinggai!" tempiknya.

Ada segelintir penumpang yang ketawa kecil mendengar kenyataan tersebut, memandangkan bas tersebut bertolak 45 minit lambat. "Saya cakap betul ni!, Lambat, Tinggal!!! Saya takkan kira orang dah! Saya jalan ja!!!" tempiknya sekali lagi.

Para penumpang mengiyakan sahaja. Saya teru ke Surau, dan sempat menjamah sedikit makanan. Belum sempat saya menghabiskan makanan alarm saya menunjukkan setengah jam sudah tamat. Saya terus berlari ke bas dan kemuadiannya melihat Mahmud juga menaiki bas dan meneruskan perjalanan kembali tanpa mengira dan melihat penumpangnya!

Astagfirullahala'zim. Tergamam saya. Apa yang saya tahu, Pakcik dan Makcik yang duduk di sebelah saya mungkin dalam lingkungan 60-an ke 70-an belum menaiki bas. Beg mereka juga masih di dalam bas. Betapa biadapnya Mahmud terhadap penumpangnya.

Terdetik dalam fikiran saya 'Tidak ada makna beliau pergi meninggalkan penumpangnya begitu saja untuk menunjukkan beliau tepati masa kerana beliau telah membiarkan kami menunggu hampir 45 minit untuk bertolak!'

Setelah saya sampai di Juru, saya dapati bas ini akan singgah di Butterworth dahulu. Sekali lagi saya ditipu, Setahu saya, saya membeli tiket terus ke Sungai Nibong, Pulau Pinang. Nasib baiklah ada beberapa penumpang yang akan ke destinasi yang sama. Ada juga penumpang yang bangun untuk mengesahkan adakah bas ini akan singgah ke Pulau Pinang. Mungkin mereka risau melihat perangai Mahmud yang tidak bertanggungjawab itu. Namun, soalan penumpang tersebut yang ditanya dengan penuh sopan santun, dijawab dengan herdikan. Mahmud hanya menjerit " Duduk diam-diam kat tempat sudah, sampai Penang aku panggil la!!!"

Sakit hati saya dengar tempikan beliau, namun tiada apa-apa yang kami dapat lakukan. Saya dapati semua pelanggan hanya mediamkan diri, termasuk saya. Mungkin kerana jam sudah menunjukkan pukul 1.30 pagi. Melihat Mahmud yang berperangai seperti orang sakit otak itu, saya juga bimbang aklan dihalau keluar dari bas walaupun kita yang membayar perkhidmatan tersebut. Betapa biadapnya pemandu bas sekarang.

Saya boleh katakan yang saya akan serik menaiki bas. Pada pendapat saya, pemandu bas lima tahun yang dahulu lebih berhemah daripada segelintir yang ada sekarang. Walaupun ada pemandu bas yang garang, namun mereka jarang mengeluarkan kata cacian kepada para penumpang. Mereka juga akan mengira setiap penumpang sebelum meneruskan perjalanan.

Seperti kes saya, Ali dan Mahmud sepatutnya berterima kasih kepada pelanggan yang masih ingin menaiki bas. Mereka mungkin akan hilang sumber rezeki jika pelanggan makin berkurangan. Dengan layanan yang diberikan oleh mereka, mungkin ada pelanggan lain yang akan melaporkan ketidakpuasan hati mereka terhadap kedua pemandu ini. Ingatlah bahawa setiap rezeki yang masuk itu, sebahagiannya adalah daripada hasil jualan tiket tersebut. Jika kamu tidak mampu menjalankan tanggungjawab yang diberikan, seeloknya berhentilah jadi pemandu dan carilah kerja lain yang tidak perlu berurusan dengan manusia.

Bagi saya, Ali dan Mahmud bernasib baik kerana semua penumpang hanya mendiamkan diri. Cuba bayangkan juka ada penumpang yang berada dalam keadaan tertekan, atau ada di kalangan penumpang yang membawa barangan merbahaya, mungkin kedua-dua pemandu ini akan ditikam, ditembak atau dicurahkan asid. Beringatlah sebelum terkena.

Saya mohon syarikat bas berkenaan untuk menasihati pemandu-pemandu ini kerana kedua-dua mereka amat biadap dan sangat tidak bertanggungjawab. Mungkis kes ini akan berlaku kepada orang lain pula, jadi saya mohon syarikat yang terlibat memberikan nasihat sewajarnya kepada kedua-dua pemandu ini.
Terima kasih.

Graduan TESL UITM Sabah 2011 masih menunggu

Posted: 25 Jun 2013 06:55 PM PDT



June 18th, 2013

Saya graduan TESL dari Universiti Teknologi Mara UiTM Cawangan Sabah yang telah tamat pengajian pada Mei 2011, masih menunggu sessi temuduga dari KPM dan SPP. Graduan seperti kami telah tercicir dan lansung tidak dipedulikan oleh KPM. Saya telah menerima surat dari KPM sebanyak 4 x, mengatakan bahawa tidak ada kekosongan untuk opsyen guru bahasa Inggeris setakat ini. Bagaimana mungkin ini terjadi, SPP telah membuka sessi temuduga untuk graduan 2012, bahkan guru opsyen bahasa Inggeris turut dibuka? mengapa kami graduan yang telah lama tamat pengajian dipinggirkan berbanding graduan yang baru tamat pengajian?

Saya merayu kepada KPM, tolong perhatikan masalah saya dan kawan2 yang masih meletakkan harapan unutk menjadi seorang guru. Berilah kami peluang untuk di temuduga. Saya sejujurnya belum pernah menerima apa2 panggilan temuduga guru dari KPM mahupun SPP.

Saya berharap, Graduan TESL UITM Cawangan Sabah Mei 2011 mendapat peluang temuduga serta berita gembira dari pihak KPM dan juga SPP.

Hakim: Tubuhkan IPCMC segera

Posted: 26 Jun 2013 12:37 AM PDT

Hakim Mahkamah Tinggi Datuk VT Singham menyokong cadangan untuk menubuhkan Suruhanjaya Bebas Aduan dan Salah Laku Polis (IPCMC) dengan segera bagi menangani peningkatan kes kematian dalam tahanan.


Katanya, saranan oleh suruhajaya siasatan diraja untuk menubuhkan IPCMC tidak sepatutnya dibiarkan begitu sahaja.

"Ia perlu diaktifkan secepat mungkin untuk memberi keyakinan kepada semua pihak terbabit, termasuk anggota keluarga individu yang meninggal dunia, bahawa satu agensi bebas sedang meneliti perkara itu tanpa apa-apa pengaruh dari pegawai polis tempatan," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika membacakan penghakimannya dalam kes saman ke atas polis dan kerajaan yang dikemukakan oleh keluarga seorang tahanan yang meninggal dunia, A Kugan.

Pemerhatian berkenaan bagaimanapun tidak terikat kepada undang-undang.

Anwar dilantik semula sebagai ketua pembangkang Parlimen

Posted: 26 Jun 2013 12:10 AM PDT

Penasihat Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim hari ini dilantik semula sebagai Ketua Pembangkang di Dewan Rakyat bagi Parlimen ke-13.
Yang Dipertua Dewan Rakyat Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia yang mengumumkan perkara itu, berkata pelantikan Anwar yang juga Anggota Parlimen Permatang Pauh, dibuat mengikut Peraturan Mesyuarat 4A(3).
"Mengikut maklum balas yang saya terima, saya berpuas hati bahawa Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim sebulat suara mendapat sokongan daripada anggota parlimen pembangkang di Parlimen untuk dilantik sebagai Ketua Pembangkang," katanya pada persidangan Dewan Rakyat di sini.
Anwar pertama kali dilantik sebagai Ketua Pembangkang pada sidang Parlimen ke-12 selepas menang pada pilihan raya kecil Parlimen Permatang Pauh pada 2008.
Sehari selepas pilihan raya umum ke-13 (PRU13) Mei lalu, Penasihat DAP Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Gelang Patah) dilapor menyatakan pembangkang bersetuju mengekalkan Anwar untuk mengetuai pakatan pembangkang di Parlimen, walaupun DAP memenangi lebih banyak kerusi parlimen berbanding parti sekutunya.
Selepas PRU13 pakatan pembangkang menduduki 89 daripada 222 kerusi di Dewan Rakyat iaitu DAP 38, PKR 30 dan PAS 21 kerusi. - Bernama, 26 Jun, 2013.
