Tuesday, August 25, 2009



Respectfully, we would like to refer to the subject above.

We would like to inform you that we, officers of the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC), feel obliged to expose the misconduct and bribery of a senior officer of the MACC, Deputy Director (DD) MACC Selangor PKPj I Hishamuddin bin Hashim, in connection with the case of TEOH BENG HOCK and another case involving the bungalow of DATO' SERI DR MOHAMAD KHIR BIN TOYO in Section 7, Shah Alam, Selangor.

2. For YBhg Tan Sri/Dato/Tuan/Puan's information, DD was directly involved in the investigations on the fraud case of the Selangor State Government's funds for YB Ean's (ADUN Seri Kembangan) allocation. His involvement was not just on official orders, but he has also given instructions to his subordinates to find, with any means possible, any evidence of wrongdoing by the Selangor State Goverment. He acted in this fashion because he has made a conspiracy with Khir Toyo to topple the government of Selangor. These (gelojoh) actions directly resulted in the death of Teoh Beng Hock. There arise a few suspicious questions that we, officers of the MACC Malaysia, ask on how Teoh Beng Hock could have died. We suspect the DD's involvement in the death of Teoh Beng Hock based on the following:

i) DD had ordered all MACC officers involved in the operation that he not be directly involved in the case. In fact, he was the one who gave all the orders in this operation and other operations in MACC Selangor. In fact, he was afraid to be involved directly because this could expose his conspiracy with Khir Toyo.

ii) The chemical investigators have discovered fingerprints and male DNA on the front side of both sides of Teoh Beng Hock's belt. Based on our, the officers of MACC Malaysia, knowledge, the DD has an individual style of investigative techniques which include interrogating a suspect by holding the front of his belt, lifting him a few times while shaking him.

iii) The process of collecting DNA on MACC Selangor officers was performed in 2 sessions. In the first session of collecting DNA, the DD made every effort to evade giving his DNA sample. The DD was said to have given his DNA sample in the second session, but suspicions arise because the DD gave his DNA sample in the privacy of his own office while all other MACC offiers including the MACC Director have given their DNA samples in a meeting room in the presence of many other individuals. Why did the DD give his DNA sample in a secretive fashion? Was the DNA provided really his DNA? We, the officers of the MACC Malaysia, feel puzzled that there was no one else in the presence of the DD when he allegedly gave his DNA sample? We recommend that the DNA Test on the DD must be done again, witnessed by a group of people who can be trusted.

iv) We have been informed that the DD had ordered his subordinates to erase/clean the fingerprints on the window that Teoh was believed to have fallen from. This was proven when the police could not find any signs of fingerprints, new or old, on the window. The question is, why did the DD order that this be done?

v) We suspect, based on information we have obtained, that the DD did not touch his punch-card when he left the office on the 16th of July 2009, at 6:10 am. This is important because it can prove that the DD was the last person to see Teoh. The question is, why did he not touch his punch-card when he is a person who always touches his punch-card. For the record, he is very diligent with his punch-card.

3. For YBhg Tan Sir/Dato/Tuan/Puan's information, the DD in question is very influential in the enforcement of investigation operations around Selangor and the rest of Malaysia. In MACC Selangor, he is the most important person who decides whether a case should be prosecuted even if the power should rest in the hands of the Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP). His decision is prompted by his personal interests and those of his co-conspirators. So, it is no surprise that he led the MACC Selangor Investigative Unit for decades, at least since the Selangor state government was under the helm of the Barisan Nasional government (Khir Toyo) until now. He was promoted ahead of schedule, from Grade 41 to Grade 54, over the course of 16 years without transfer to other positions or locations other than that of the MACC Selangor. Based on the MACC, any officer who has been promoted or who has worked for more than 5 years in a state should be transferred to a different location to avoid the officer being involved in local bribery. One of the reasons he was never transferred is because he was tasked to "take care of" the position of Dato' Seri Dr Khir Toyo in Selangor. As a result, Khir Toyo also "took care of" his position in Selangor as a favour.

4. As a result of his position in MACC Selangor for these many years, he has been involved in various cases of bribery and misuse of power. Some of the incidents of bribery or misuse of power that we have investigated are as follows:

i) Closing the case of Khir Toyo connected to the approval of a road construction project, in Sekinchan running 20.5 km valued at RM 92.5 million to a contractor that was nearly blacklisted, Meram Holdings. According to the JKR's estimates, the road should have cost less than RM 50 million. The subcontractor that did the work on the project was Cabaran Wangsa, owned by Pua Kim An, the landlord of a house that had once been rented by Khir, while another company director, Ahmad Tarmizi Tajjeury is a Khir crony that was also given 100 acres of land at a profit to him of at least RM 20 million.

ii) Owning assets that exceed his emoluments such as:

a. Owning a few rental houses of which one is a two storey terrace house that was purchased at a favourable price from Pemaju Kumpulan Lebar Daun Development Sdn Bhd, as a result of the closing of the case against the Group Executive Chairman, Dato' Noor Azman @ Noor Hizam bin Mohd Nurdin. The case was investigated by the then BPR Selangor for a few years together with various other houses owned by him. To remove public and subordinate suspicions, he lived in the Government Quarters in Kg Atap, Kuala Lumpur.

b. Owning a Petronas petrol station on the left of the Federal Highway KM 8.6 - 8.7, Section 1, Federal Highway, Shah Alam, 40000 Selangor (near the Melati Roundabout, Shah Alam to Klang bound, registered under the name of his brother. The petrol station only just began operating this year (2009), part of which was built above a Chinese cemetary. He managed to get the site to build the petrol station because of his power, which was exercised in the era of Khir Toyo's government in Selangor.

c. Owning several plots of land around Shah Alam, in which one of them is believed to be beside the new SACC Mall registered under the name of a wife of a MACC Selangor driver named Abdullah b Azim, a full time homemaker in her late 30s.

iii) He has been caught in close proximity with a subordinate officer, Investigator rank, named Nor Azlina bt Mustafa besides the Shah Alam Lake early in 2009 by 2 police officers. He showed his identity card (MACC) and informed the police officers that he and the officer were in the middle of an operation and they were released. These "intimacies" between him and the Investigator were repeated and are common knowledge of many including his own wife. The only action taken by the Department was transferring the officer involved to the MACC Headquarters in Putrajaya. This was not effective because Azlina is still always with the DD in the Selangor office.

5. This letter was written to uphold justice and prevent the further abuse of power especially in the MACC and throughout Malaysia. We in the MACC are fed up to see his antics which have the blessings of the powers that be, like the saying "beraja di mata, bersultan di hati". We in the MACC have (hilang punca? Anybody?) to find departments/institutions/NGOs that can champion this issue so the appropriate action can be taken.

6. We, the officers of the MACC, are touched and thankful that YBhg Dato'/tuan/puan could expose this issue to the people and the authorities so that an organisation/NGO can take the appropriate action, or an independent investigation, can be taken and raised to the Cabinet. This is very important because it involves the integrity of a serving officer of a department that upholds the laws involving human integrity. The DD is now making every effort to press his subordinates to find any faults involving ruling PKR in the hopes that the PKR-led government will fall in Selangor and his secret will be safe. For your information, the DD is now very afraid whenever news about Dato' Seri Khir Toyo is released in the press and he would be very afraid if the case would expose his involvement.

7. We hope that any brave individuals or organizations can spread this information so that our actions can be brought to the attention of responsible and trusted authorities and that justice can be done. We are unable to do this ourselves because he has a "cable" with the powers that be.

8. Cooperation from YBhg Tan Sri/Dato'/tuan/puan is much appreciated and we hope that through your action, much more information can be brought to light involving individuals with no integrity. We hope that this will cleanse the MACC and its officers from further involvement in bribery and corruption.

Sekian, terima kasih

Arakian, apabila terjadi keputusan bekalan di paip utama maka penduduk akan menghadapi masalah bekalan air kerana tangki tersebut tidak dapat membekalkan air dalam bentuk bekalan kecemasan.

Aduan demi aduan dibuat namun hingga kini aduan tinggal aduan..tangki masih gagal berfungsi...

Justeru itu, kepada yang berwajib..sila la berbuat sesuatu yang wajar dan pada kadar segera..

Jalan raya dari Bukit Pelandok ke Simpang Bukit Pelandok. Telah hampir 2 bulan penduduk di Bukit pelandok menderita akibat kelewatan pihak kontraktor menyiapkan jalan ini. 

Jambatan sempit dihadapan Kg Baru Site A. Banyak kemalangan telah berlaku disini. Alangkah baiknya jika diberikan sedikit tekanan kepada pihak berwajib untuk melebarkan jambatan ini secepat mungkin tanpa menanti peruntukan dalam RMK 10 kerana kemalangan boleh berlaku pada bila-bila masa.

Pig Farming Area Site A: Telah hampir 5 tahun disiapkan dan sehingga kini belum digunakan. Ada baiknya jika dapat dipantau adakah ini juga termasuk dalam RMK 9.
Arakian belum digunakan sehingga kini..apa masalahnya? 
Juga tolong selidiki apa peranan bekas wakil rakyat chuah dan lukut dalam projek ini.

Langkah Pemuda PAS bersemuka dengan Pemuda Umno dipuji

Mohd Sabri Said Fri Jul 03, 09 3:41:57 pm MYT

PERMATANG PAUH, 3 Jun (Hrkh) - Naib Presiden PAS, Dato' Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man menegaskan langkah Dewan Pemuda PAS Pusat untuk bersemuka dengan Umno dalam 'Wacana Ilmiah Terbuka: Benarkah Perjuangan Umno Tidak bertentangan Dengan Islam' harus dipuji kerana sikap itu dapat membongkar Umno sebenarnya.

Tambahan lagi usaha itu selari dengan kehendak Musyidul Am PAS, Dato' Nik Aziz Nik Mat yang mahu berdebat dengan Perdana Menteri merangkap Presiden Umno, Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Jelasnya, perbahasan mengenai kebenaran tidak akan selesai selagi masing-masing berkeras tanpa adanya pertemuan berdasarkan kebenaran al-Quran.
"Apa-apa pertelingkahan pun jika mahu ukur siapa yang benar mesti kembali kepada al-Quran. Jika tidak semua akan berpanjangan," tegasnya.
Pertemuan itu juga boleh meninggalkan impak besar kepada PAS sebagaimana pertemuan atas dasar kemanusiaan Palestin oleh dua tokoh tanah air antara Presiden PAS waktu itu, Dato' Fazhil Noor dan mantan Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Walaupun bukan mencari titik pertemuan perjuangan antara PAS dan Umno tetapi atas nama keadilan sejagat ekoran penindasan yang berterusan terhadap umat Islam di Palestin.
Yakin dan bersabar untuk melihat pertemuan itu sebab selalunya Umno akan mencari helah untuk membatalkanya demi tidak mahu menanggung malu jika panel yang mewakili Umno gagal mengemukakan hujah yang bernas, katanya.
"Apapun ahli kita harus bersatu dan bersabar serta terbuka hati untuk melihat penghujahan itu nanti. Rakyat pun akan menilai penghujahan kerana lazimnya hujah Umno pakai pemikiran bukannya ilmiah yang termaktub dalam al-Quran. Ataupun Umno sendiri akan mengumumkan pembatalan saat-saat akhir bila merasai diri mereka tertekan," ujarnya yang juga Pesuruhjaya PAS Pahang.
In crisis, Pakatan moves toward a permanent partnershipBy Shannon TeohKUALA LUMPUR, July 3 - Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is set to finally put togetherthe framework for a more structured and permanent political structure in thepartnership of PAS, PKR and DAP, which will see Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim putin place as chairman of a leadership council.A "rapid response unit" comprising key members from the three partners willalso be set up to counter political attacks with a uniformed message andmitigate the kind of gamesmanship and petty politicking which has seen thealliance rocked to its core in recent weeks.But any notion of the new leadership council being a quick-fix for the opensquabbling which broke out this week is likely to be tempered by the factthat wide ideological differences still exist in the alliance formed soonafter last year's general election.The problems PR is still facing in Penang and Kedah as well as the Umno-PASunity government talks suggest a lack of compromise so far between itsleaders.The Malaysian Insider understands that plans for a properly structuredleadership council have been tabled to the leaders of the three parties asDatuk Zaid Ibrahim, brought into PKR ostensibly as the man to do this,follows up on plans to formalise the coalition.In an earlier interview, he had told The Malaysian Insider that he wouldpursue a structure "that will try and find common positions on delicateissues and strengthen capacity building."The current proposal for the council will see Anwar as chairman with asecretary-general given authority to develop central policies which willthen require endorsement by members of the council from all three parties.However, it appears that while there would not be any objection to Anwar'schairmanship, the office of secretary-general will be a touchy issue for analliance grappling with the concept of power sharing.The Rapid Response Unit, on the other hand, will be tasked with being "thefirst line of defence," according to Dzulkefly Ahmad, a member of thecurrent informal PR joint secretariat.The Kuala Selangor MP for PAS told The Malaysian Insider that it would bemade up of technocrats "who are always on the ball and able to quickly meetto decide on the next course of action" if issues such as Kedah DAP's recentpullout of the state government occur.Provisionally, DAP information chief Tony Pua and PKR strategy directorSaifuddin Nasution will join Dzulkefly as unit members.But some leaders, requesting anonymity, expressed doubts over theeffectiveness of these measures.One said that as the hierarchy within the three political parties did notalways translate when it came to government roles, certain mentris besar orchief ministers would not accede if they felt their policies were right."If the council or unit decides on something, what is the guarantee thatsome leaders with strong personalities will follow?" the leader asked."We need a proper whip system. Then either you toe the line or you resign,"another suggested.However, both Pua and Dzulkelfy pointed out that in the end, nothingreplaces good governance."It is important to rule well and focus on core principles such asdelivering on the promises that PR has made," Pua said.

Press Statement by Lim Guan Eng in Petaling Jaya on Thursday, 2nd July 2009:
The breakdown of trust between Kedah DAP and the Kedah PAS Menteri Besar warrants a CEC meeting to endorse or oppose this withdrawal from Kedah PR
DAP expresses grave concern at the decision by the Kedah DAP to pull out from the state Pakatan Rakyat coalition caused by the failure of the PAS-led government not to give equal treatment to all Kedahans. Kedah State DAP chairman Thomas Su said the demolition of an illegal pig slaughterhouse at Kampung Berjaya and imposition of 50% bumi housing quota in the state were the cause of the withdrawal from Kedah PR.
I was informed by Thomas Su of the Kedah state committee decision yesterday. Only after receiving the official letter confirming the Kedah State Committee decision, would I call a Central Executive Committee(CEC) to make a final decision on the matter.
Pulling out of PR is a serious matter with large adverse national ramifications. For Kedah DAP to do so from the Kedah state government, signals the complete lack of communication and respect from the Kedah PAS-led government. Kedah DAP had never sought any titles or Datukships but had been unhappy with the lack of respect accorded by PAS to DAP in Kedah unlike the respect accorded to PAS in Penang.
I would normally oppose such moves personally especially when based on a single issue and IF there is still room to redress and correct the situation. However, the desperate nature of the situation and the breakdown of trust between Kedah DAP and the Kedah PAS Menteri Besar warrants a CEC meeting to endorse or oppose this withdrawal. All implications will be reviewed and studied in the final decision.
KUALA LUMPUR: DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang said the Kedah DAP’s determination to quit the state government spelled a “crisis of confidence” in Pakatan Rakyat.
He described his party’s latest dispute with Pas as the alliance’ssecond such crisis coming after senior leaders in the Islamist party proposed unity talks with Umno.Lim, the member of parliament for Ipoh Timur, said he was “shocked” by the Kedah DAP’s decision to pull out of the state Pakatan over the razing of an illegal pig abattoir in Alor Star.He said it was still too early to come to any conclusions as he had not been briefed on the complaint by state DAP chairman Thomas Su Keong
Siong.Su, however, said yesterday that an official letter had been faxed to party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng confirming the state DAP committee’s decision to leave the Pas-led state government.He said he expected the party central executive committee to meet on the matter soon.“We have to wait for the report, though I must admit there is considerable frustration that their (DAP Kedah’s) views are not taken seriously.“Undoubtedly, this will not be taken lightly. We view this situation with grave seriousness,” he said at a press conference at the Parliament lobby.Lim said he would go to Alor Star tomorrow to meet the state DAP and residents in the abattoir area for their views.Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the dispute could be resolved within Pakatan.“We will consider their (Kedah DAP’s) grouses, but I will also talk to the menteri besar,” he said at the Parliament lobby.Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak gave no indication yesterday that he would back down from his stand on the abattoir.
KUALA LUMPUR: Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang yesterday backed the move by the party’s Youth wing to invite its counterpart in Umno to engage in an academic discourse or dialogue on current issues.
He said it was a good suggestion and not at all in conflict with the party’s stand.He also said Pas allowed such discussions as it could help solveproblems affecting the two political parties.“It is something that is good and does not go against the party’s stand,”
he told reporters at the Parliament lobby.Hadi, who is Marang MP, was asked about the invitation by Pas Youth chief Nasrudin Hassan to Umno Youth to take part in a dialogue to resolve differences between them.Umno Youth welcomed the move and said it was a new development that would give an opportunity to both parties to do something good in the interestsof the people and country. Hadi said Pas would continue strengthening unity and cooperation within Pakatan Rakyat, but at the same time allowed discussions to be heldwith other parties, including Umno or other component parties in Barisan Nasional.Opposition leader and Parti Keadilan Rakyat de facto head Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he had left it to the Pas leadership to decide if the suggestion was a good idea.“I have a different interpretation of it. It’s up to them to decideif the topic is suitable for such a discussion.”Kulim Bandar Baru MP Zulkifli Nordin said the academic discourse was a good move and could more or less resolve differences among Muslims.On DAP Youth’s objection, he said it was expected of DAP becauseof its secular thinking.“They (DAP) cannot see Muslims or Malays sitting at the same table and having such a discussion because it does not benefit them at all.”Pas vice-president Salahuddin Ayub said Pakatan Rakyat was always willing and open to discuss any issue, including economic rehabilitation, education and social problems.MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong felt that the invitation was not an “academic discourse or dialogue”, but an ordinary discussion.He said at present the matter did not involve MCA and the party stood its ground that whatever discussion must be able to help stabilise the political situation and lessen the effects of the economic crisis.“For now, MCA is not involved in any kind of talks. But if there are any, it must be for the good of the people and the country. It doesn’t matter if the discussion is held with the opposition, as long as they aresincere. That is MCA’s stand.”
Dedah segera status '18 kes berprofil tinggi'
Wan Nordin Wan Yaacob Fri Jul 03, 09 9:41:54 am MYT
KUALA LUMPUR, 3 Julai (Hrkh) - Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) dicabar mengumumkan status kes '18 berprofil tinggi' yang pernah disiasat badan itu sebelum ini.

Demikian kata Ketua Angkatan Muda Keadilan (AMK), Shamsul Iskandar Mat Akin yang mengulas kenyataan SPRM yang bakal mendedahkan kes rasuah besar dalam masa terdekat.
Menurut Shamsul Iskandar, SPRM hingga kini masih merahsiakan status siasatan 18 tokoh politik walhal ia menyentuh kepentingan rakyat.
Malah kenyataan yang dikeluarkan SPRM baginya sering bersifat retorik memandangkan di peringkat tindakan ianya amat mengecewakan.
Beliau menyokong penuh langkah SPRM yang kononnya mahu mendedahkan kes rasuah besar membabitkan nama besar dalam negara ini.
Namun, katanya beliau masih sangsi akan siasatan yang bakal dilakukan tidak akan didedahkan kerana menjaga kepentingan politik pihak tertentu.
Dalam pada itu, Pengerusi Gerakan Anti Raruah Malaysia (Gerak), Mohd Nazree Yunos pula menyatakan sokongan terhadap usaha-usaha penyiasatan yang telah dijalankan SPRM berhubung kes rasuah besar.
Beliau mahu kes besar ini ini dapat didedahkan kepada umum dengan segera dan disusuli dengan pendakwaan berasaskan bukti-bukti kukuh tanpa ada bentuk-bentuk pendakwaan terpilih.
Ujar Mohd Nazree pihaknya yakin bahawa pendedahan kes besar yang bakal diumumkan kelak akan meliputi kes-kes yang berkepentingan rakyat seumpama yang melibatkan Syarikat Berkepentingan Kerajaan GLC, pihak berkuasa tempatan (PBT), pemimpin politik dan juga projek-projek mega seumpama dakwaan korupsi dalam PKFZ ataupun pembinaan MRR2.
"Jika ada bukti yang jelas perasuah tersebut perlu didakwa segera," tegasnya. - mks. _ -->
KUALA LUMPUR, 3 Julai (Hrkh) - Selepas Pengarah Jabatan Pilihan Raya PAS Pusat, Dato' Ustaz Abdul Halim Abdul Rahman mendedahkan akan berlakunya pembubaran Dewan Undangan Negeri Perak, kini Menteri Besar Pakatan Rakyat Perak pula yakin dengan pendedahan itu.

Dato' Seri Ir Nizar Jamaluddin yang juga ahli Parlimen Bukit Gantang melaungkan keyakinan keadaan yang kucar-kacir yang berlaku di Perak sejak rampasan kuasa berlaku kini semakin membimbangkan dan menyebabkan pembubaran Dun terpaksa dilakukan.
Keyakinan beliau itu berasas kerana prestasi kerajaan yang memerintah di Perak hari ini semakin dipertikai.
Kerajaan sedia ada juga dikatakan tidak mampu mentadbir dengan baik berikutan situasi yang tidak tentu hala yang melanda negeri tersebut.
Paling tragis katanya, dalam masa terdekat juga Sidang Dun Perak perlu diadakan berhubung kelulusan Belanjawan 2010 yang pastinya sekali lagi akan mengundang kekecohan.
Nizar mendedahkan beberapa ahli Parlimen dan wakil rakyat BN turut menyetujui kekalutan yang berlaku di Perak boleh diselesaikan hanya dengan pembubaran Dun Perak bagi membolehkan pilihan raya kecil negeri diadakan.
Sebelum ini, Ustaz Halim yang juga ahli Parlimen Pengkalan Chepa dalam wawancaranya bersama Harakah ada mendedahkan bahawa pembubaran Dun Perak mungkin akan berlaku selepas PRK Manik Urai.
"Saya menjangkakan pilihan raya Negeri Perak mahu atau tidak akan diadakan, sebab itu kita cadang mahu buat persiapan apa yang patut hadapi pilihan raya Perak,"tegasnya.
Beliau melihat bertapa pentingnya kini JPP yang dikendalikan bersedia awal dengan memantapkan ahli-ahli jawatankuasa mengenai ilmu pilihan raya. - mks. _ -->
KUALA LUMPUR, July 1 - The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will summon thetransport minister, his two predecessors and the attorney-general to testifyover the PKFZ scandal, in an investigation which could have seriouspolitical consequences for MCA and the Barisan Nasional (BN) administration.The parliamentary panel will also call Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) chiefexecutive officer and Barisan Nasional Backbenchers chairman Datuk SeriTiong King Sing to answer questions on the Port Klang Free Zone fiasco.All of them will be called in to testify in two weeks' time.The decision was made at today's meeting which was meant to finalise the setof questions to be asked of those who will be summoned in two weeks' time.PAC chairman Datuk Seri Azmi Khalid said although they will be called in totestify, this does not mean that they are guilty."They are not necessarily guilty, but we are calling them to be assured,"Azmi told The Malaysian Insider in Parliament today.When asked how many individuals had been called to testify, he said he wasnot sure but "quite a number" which includes senior civil servants andformer ministers.The PAC is conducting an investigation into how PKFZ's initial cost ofnearly RM2 billion could rise to RM12.5 billion because of variousdiscrepancies.The scandal first surfaced in 2007, and disclosures so far show that thefiasco straddles the tenures as transport ministers of Datuk Seri Ong TeeKeat, Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy and Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik.It was also decided that the testimony of Datuk Gani Patail, the AG, wouldbe relevant because he was privy to government information on the scandal.Last week, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) head Datuk SeriAhmad Said Hamdan had testified before the PAC.But the head of the anti-graft agency refused to answer most questionsthrown at him over its ongoing probe.Ahmad Said stonewalled the bipartisan parliamentary committee by repeatedlyciting legal provisions which he said prevented him from giving specificanswers to questions from the lawmakers.The Malaysian Insider understands that PAC members have yet to receivecopies and appendices of the PriceWaterhouse Cooper report on PKFZ despitethe exertion of pressure on Parliament's secretariat and the transportminister to do so.The DAP's Lim Kit Siang, who has led a vocal campaign against Ong over thescandal, blasted the transport minister and accused the latter attempting toblack out incriminating and significant information from reaching thepublic.
KUALA LUMPUR, July 1 - The DAP's Lim Kit Siang today said the party'sconstant pressure on the government over the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ)scandal has been effective but the battle has yet to be won.He said the decision by the Port Klang Authority (PKA) to withold payment ofRM660 million to turnkey contractor Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd (KDSB) iswelcomed.The action by PKA's board comes in the wake of calls yesterday by the DAP'sLim Guan Eng for the Transport Ministry to stop payments to KDSB or anyother parties, until the culprits responsible for the scandal have beenarrested and charged in court."I note that the voices of DAP leaders on how the PKFZ scandal should behandled are beginning to be taken more seriously by those in authority," Limtold a press conference in Parliament today.But Lim was quick to caution Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat thatthe DAP's welcoming statement on the payment deferment doesn't mean Ong canrun away from his responsibility."Was this decision the result of Ong's directive? If so, I will give creditwhere credit is due but if it's not, then giving credit to him would bedoing an injustice to the PKA board," he said."But if Ong claims credit for the latest decision, he must be prepared totake full responsibility for all the other decisions of the PKA as he cannotchoose to claim credit for praiseworthy PKA decisions while disclaiming fordeplorable PKA decisions," he added.Lim also blasted Ong for accusing both him and his son of telling lies anddistorting the truth about the PKFZ issue at an MCA function yesterday.The DAP veteran said it is Ong who is running away from engaging DAP in apublic debate on the matter saying "those who run are the liars."DAP launched an all-out assault on Ong and the government on the PKFZ issuevowing not to rest until the perpetrators are punished.The party organised ceramahs and even launched a website on the issue toupdate the public on the PKFZ scandal.____

Jambatan Pulau Pinang II Terlalu Mahal, Pakatan Gesa Kos Dikaji SemulaTuesday, 30 June 2009 •

Kategori: Berita Semasa, Berita Utama, Nasional

Kerajaan digesa mengkaji semula kos projek pembinaan jambatan Pulau Pinang kedua yang menelan belanja RM22 billion hanya untuk fasa satu.
Ketua Umum Parti Keadilan Rakyat Anwar Ibrahim berkata rakyat sudah tentu tidak mampu menanggung kos setinggi itu dan menyarankan BN meneliti semula pelan laluan jambatan itu bagi mengurangkan harga projek.
Projek Jambatan Pulau Pinang II dilancarkan pada November 2006 dan dijangka siap pada Mei 2012.
Jambatan 24 kilometer itu akan menghubungkan Batu Kawan di Seberang Perai dan Batu Maung di selatan Pulau Pinang.
Pembinaan projek ini bagaimanapun tertangguh ekoran lonjakan kos projek, akibat kenaikan kos bahan binaan serta kegagalan Kumpulan UEM memberikan sebut harga yang tetap.
“Saya tidak menolak rasional meneruskan dengan projek jambatan itu, tetapi saya musykil mengapa projek jambatan kedua diteruskan di laluan yang dicadangkan yang menelan belanja yang besar,” kata Anwar.
Projek ini berbilion ringgit ini dibina dengan bantuan pinjaman dari Republik Rakyat China, dalam usahasama Kumpulan UEM dan China Harbour Engineering Co. Ltd (CHEC).
Walaupoun kosnya begitu tinggi, Kerajaan BN sudah pun mengeluarkan surat tawaran RM22 billion kepada CHEH-UEM untuk melaksanakan fasa pertama projek.
Pakatan Rakyat mencadangkan laluan projek ini dialihkan ke bahagian utara Pulau Pinang yang lebih hampir kepada Tanah Besar Semenanjung sebagai cara berkesan untuk mengurangkan kos.
“Berdasarkan kepada maklumat industri yang saya perolehi, ada cadangan yang dikemukakan kepada kerajaan supaya meneruskan projek di laluan alternatif dan kalau ini dapat diteruskan ia dapat menjimatkan belanja RM4 bilion ringgit termasuk gantirugi kepada syarikat yang dianugerah projek itu,” kata Ahli Parlimen Permatang Pauh itu.
Anwar berkata kerajaan perlu komited kepada perbelanjaan yang bijak dan menyelamatkan sebanyak mungkin wang rakyat dari projek-projek mega sebegini, supaya ia dilabur kepada sektor kesihatan dan pendidikan.
“Saya sekali lagi pertikai kedegilan kerajaan. Apa komitmen yang mereka buat sehingga mereka tidak mahu ubah perkara ini sedangkan mereka boleh fast-track pembinaan ini. Dari RM4 bilion ini, bayangkan kita boleh bina 400 hospital dan 400 sekolah tetapi sedikitpun tidak dipedulikan,” tegas Anwar.
Anwar menjelaskan Pakatan Rakyat tidak mempertikai projek ini diteruskan oleh usahasama Kumpulan UEM-China Harbour bahkan berpendapat komitmen usahasama ini diteruskan.
Apa yang ditekankan adalah laluan projek ini ditukar bagi menurunkan kos pembinaan supaya ia tidak membebankan warga Pulau Pinang dalam jangka masa panjang.
“Kita tidak pertikai jika rundingan dijalankan dan mereka bina projek ini di laluan alternatif. Ini lebih viable kerana projek yang dicadangkan ini menelan belanja lebih tinggi dan lebih sukar untuk rakyat pulau pinang bayar kos dengan caj yang lebih tinggi kerana kos yang tinggi,” kata Anwar.
KEADILAN condemns & questions high-handed action of Speaker
15 Jun 2009
Parti Keadilan Rakyat (KEADILAN) condemns the high-handed action of Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia in ejecting and suspending the newly sworn-in Bukit Gantang MP Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin and six other Pakatan Rakyat parliamentarians from the Dewan Rakyat today. The ejection of the MPs, simply for wearing black songkoks with slogans calling for the dissolution of the Perak state assembly, is another example of the determination of the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition to quash any dissenting views in the country. It also calls into question, once again, Pandikar's impartiality as speaker of parliament.

WAN AZIZAH WAN ISMAILPresidentParti Keadilan Rakyat
