Petronas Sumbang RM90 Juta Kepada Sarawak

ketua menteri sarawak

KUCHING: Petronas mengumumkan sumbangan berjumlah RM90 juta bagi melaksanakan program tanggungjawab sosial korporat (CSR) di Sarawak untuk tahun 2015.

Agihan berkenaan merupakan permulaan bagi inisiatif CSR dalam tempoh lima tahun (2015-2019) yang akan dilaksanakan di Sarawak dalam memperkasakan pendidikan, kesejahteraan dan pembangunan masyarakat serta pemuliharaan alam sekitar.

Penyerahan itu disampaikan Pengerusi Petronas Tan Sri Sidek Hassan kepada Ketua Menteri Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem di sini yang turut dihadiri Timbalan Ketua Menteri Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Alfred Jabu Numpang.

“Petronas merupakan warga korporat yang bertanggungjawab dan bermurah hati malah ada kalanya menyelamatkan ekonomi ketika kita menghadapi masalah ekonomi tertentu.

“Sudah tentu kita mahu mereka lebih bermurah hati berbanding sekarang namun kita menerima apa yang kita dapat sekarang pada masa yang sama meminta lebih banyak dalam masa terdekat,” kata Adenan pada sidang media selepas majlis penyerahan di sini.

Mengenai projek CSR tempoh lima tahun akan datang, Adenan percaya Petronas menyumbang jumlah besar kepada Sarawak namun menyerahkan kepada Perdana Menteri untuk mengumumkan perkara berkenaan.

Beliau sekali lagi menegaskan pendirian bahawa kerajaan negeri pada masa yang sama akan terus berusaha memastikan kerajaan pusat menambah bayaran royalti minyak dan gas kepada 20 peratus bagi Sarawak berbanding lima peratus sedia ada.

“Perkara ini akan kita teruskan dari semasa ke semasa, bukan kepada Petronas sahaja tetapi kepada kerajaan pusat, kerana mereka yang membuat keputusan,” tegasnya.

Sementara itu Sidek berkata, antara lain pelaburan RM90 juta juga melibatkan program perlindungan koridor marin di Bintulu dan Miri, penubuhan Petrosains Playsmart Center, program latihan tindakan kecemasan bencana di peringkat komuniti serta sumbangan kepada pertubuhan bukan kerajaan di Sarawak.

Jelas beliau, Petronas berharap kerjasama antara mereka dan kerajaan negeri akan dapat terus ditingkatkan dalam usaha sama membangunkan industri minyak dan gas tempatan yang mapan dan kompetitif ke arah kesejahteraan rakyat dan kemakmuran Sarawak.

“Kami mahu menjadi warga korporat yang baik, bukan kerana ada sebab tersembunyi tetapi kerana ia bagus bagi perniagaan kami.

“Tambahan Petronas wujud untuk membantu negara termasuk Sarawak dan kami akan terus berbuat demikian.

“Kami bersyukur atas sokongan Ketua Menteri dan Petronas mahu dilihat sebagai warga korporat yang baik pada masa lalu, sekarang dan lebih-lebih lagi pada masa depan,” kata beliau.

Terdahulu dalam ucapannya, Sidek berkata bagi pelaburan lima tahun berkenaan Petronas juga akan menyalurkan kepada pembinaan sebuah Maktab Rendah Sains MARA di Bintulu dan asrama-asrama desa.

Selain itu, Petronas bekerjasama dengan Yayasan AMIR melalui penajaan lima Sekolah Amanah di daerah Lundu dan akan meningkatkan Sekolah Amanah di Sarawak daripada tujuh kepada 12 sekolah.

Majlis itu semalam turut dihadiri Speaker Dewan Undangan Negeri Datuk Amar Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar, Menteri Kebajikan, Wanita dan Pembangunan Keluarga Datuk Fatimah Abdullah dan Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri Tan Sri Datuk Amar Mohd Morshidi Abdul Ghani. - UB

The Fitch rating on Malaysia: What it really means



Schoolboy error. Really, what it means is that those guys at Fitch could get things so wrong. Just three months ago, they were telling us that, sorry guys, we are going to downgrade you [Fitch Sees More Than 50% Odds of Malaysia Downgrade on 1MDB, Bloomberg March 18]. The kind of reckless talk that hurt our ringgit and investor confidence:

Concerns Malaysia could be downgraded for the first time since the Asian financial crisis have hurt sentiment in its asset markets with the currency near the weakest in a decade. Fitch had repeatedly warned contingent liabilities such as rising debt at a state investment company [1MDB] were weighing on the rating, contributing to investors souring on the country. - Malaysia Escapes Fitch Downgrade, Bloomberg June 30

Suddenly,  they unapolegetically made a complete reversal on Malaysia's credit rating, citing "improvement in finances". Sure, of course, we believe you. But I wonder how much of Fitch's sudden reversal was influenced by the arrest of Swiss national Xavier Justo for alleged blackmailing 1MDB ex-partner Petro Saudi. 

Oh, btw, according to the Thai police, it's no longer "alleged blackmailing': Justo has admitted to the blackmailing allegation.

Tindakan Putrajaya Naikkan Harga Minyak Petrol Mampu Menyemarakkan Semangat Arap Spring Di Malaysia?


Putrajaya perlu memastikan dasar-dasarnya lebih bersistematik agar jangan jerumuskan Malaysia menjadi pengemis, demekian kata Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia (ABIM) apabila memberi amaran bahawa kenaikan kos boleh mewujudkan suasana yang kondusif sehingga menyemarakkan semangat rakyat untuk  memberontak saperti "Arab Spring".
Mengkritik kenaikan harga minyak sehingga 20 sen kelmarin, ABIM selanjutnya berkata kenaikan itu serta Cukai Barangan dan Perkhidmatan (GST)  ada lah petanda bahawa kerajaan tidak mempunyai dasar yang teratur dalam mengawal pembaziran dana awam.
Menurut ABIM, Kebebasan ekonomi  mestilah berdasarkan insentif bebas daripada campur tangan politik dan daya saing berdasarkan perancangan fiskal yang cekap. 
Dengan cara ini, orang ramai tidak akan menjadi 'pengemis' dan terpaksa mengikat perut di negara mereka sendiri.
"Kita tidak mahu tragedi Mohammad Boauzazi di Tunisia (yang mencetuskan Spring Arab) berlaku di negara kita! Jika ia berlaku, ia akan mengheret negara ini ke dalam krisis politik yang hanya akan membawa kepada penderitaan di kalangan orang ramai”, kata ABIM.
Boauzazi adalah seorang penjual jalanan Tunisia yang dilaporkan menyembelih diri sendiri pada tahun 2011 sebagai tanda  bantahan terhadap pihak berkuasa Tunisia.
Sudutan dari tindakan Boauzazi tersebut telah mencetuskan fenomena kebangkitan rakyat awam yang digelar "Arab Spring" di Tunisia dan seterus nya merebak di lain-lain kawasan di Timur Tengah.
Dalam isu yang sama, satu tinjauan oleh firma JobStreet mendapati bahawa sembilan dari 10 rakyat Malaysia ditemu duga menyatakan kesukaran dalam menghadapi kos sara hidup yang lebih tinggi berikutan pengenalan GST pada bulan April.

Shooting off Pom Pom Island

Security forces shoot at suspected cross border criminals, however there were no injuries reported in the incident

KOTA KINABALU - The Eastern Sabah Security Command (ESSCom) has confirmed a shooting incident between the security forces and suspected cross-border criminals occurred in the waters off Pom Pom Island in Semporna on Tuesday (June 30) morning.

ESSCom commander Abdul Rashid Harun, however, said no General Operations Force (PGA) members involved were hurt during the 3am incident.

“At about 3am, PGA members of a sentry post heard the sound of boat engine approaching the island. When they shone light in the direction of the boat, two shots were fired.

“In defence, the PGA members fired back and forced the suspects to flee in the dark,” he told Bernama.

Abdul Rashid said the distance between the boat and the sentry post was between 200 and 300 metres.”The incident occurred in the curfew area. We’re not sure how many suspects were on the boat and what were their intentions,” he said.

He said investigations by the security forces late in the morning did not find any signs of the boat.

Abdul Rashid said they considered it a serious incident and security personnel were always ready to face cross-border criminal threats.

Kenaikan Harga Minyak Adalah Proses Untuk Kesejahteraan Rakyat?



Mungkin ada dikalangan kita yang tidak setuju dengan alasan Perdana Menteri Datuk Najib Razak sebab kenapa  kerajaan perlu naik kan harga minysk pertol? 
Namun begitu, itu lah hakikat nya. Biar lah kita terima dengan hati yang terbuka dan dalam keadaan yang tenang. Kerana kalau bukan kita siapa lagi?
Walaupun dikatakan harga minyak dipasaran dunia masih rendah, namun Perdana Menteri merasakan kerajaan perlukan kenaikan ini sebagai satu proses pengukuhan ekonomi bagi jangka pendek dan sederhana, yang akhirnya bertujuan memberi kesan positif kepada kesejahteraan rakyat.
Kesejahteraan imbang balik yang dimaksudkan ada lah kerajaan besarkan lagi jaringan keselamatan sosial, termasuk kenaikan kadar pemberian Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia BR1M, demekian jelas Najib.
Najib yang juga Menteri Kewangan berkata demikian sebagai merujuk kepada kenaikan harga RON95 dan diesel sebanyak 20 sen seliter yang diumumkannya baru-baru ini.
Selanjut nya kata Najib, Kenaikan harga bahan api itu akan memberi kesan minimum dan seterusnya peniaga tidak mengambil peluang ini untuk menaikkan harga barang tanpa mengambil kira kepentingan rakyat, kata Najib.
Menjawab soalan, Najib berkata proses rasionalisasi subsidi sememangnya merupakan sebahagian daripada dasar kerajaan yang dimuktamadkan, namun kerajaan bertekad untuk melaksanakan secara berperingkat-peringkat bagi memastikan kesannya tidak membebankan. Ini bermaksud kerajaan tidak akan suntikkan subsidi saperti yang pernah dilakukan dimasa lampau.
Setuju atau pun tidak itu lah penjelasan Perdana Menteri sebab kenapa harga minyak petrol di naikkan dan keputusan telah pun dibuat.
Dengan ini,  harapan PM  rakyat akan memahami dan lebih pekah kepada permasalahan yang sedang di lalui oleh kerajaan.
"Kita mesti faham ini bukan soal politik, tapi soal masa depan negara, kalau ekonomi terjejas ia akan datangkan kesan buruk kepada rakyat," kata Perdana Menteri.

The 3 Time-bombs Under ESSCOM – Dr. Jeffrey

KOTA KINABALU - “The recent statements coming out from ESSCOM only confirms what Sabahans have been saying since the 1990s that the wanton issuance of dubious ICs to foreigners to keep Umno and BN in power in Sabah will only serve to create enemies within and subject Malaysia to a reverse takeover by foreigners in time to come," said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, commenting on the Esscom statements that the enemies are within and will take time to overcome the security threats and that 200,000 illegals are waiting to be deported and that ESSCOM is roping in MACC to check the corruption and lack of integrity of civil servants and security personnel.

It has been 2 years since the establishment of ESSCOM and ESSZONE and the security threats in Sabah especially in the East Coast is not much better. The federal government seems to be unable to come up with long-term and lasting solutions to protect Sabah and by extension Malaysia.

The security threats are becoming greater if the steps taken by ESSCOM of putting in another battalion of security personnel, the continued cross-border kidnappings including that of a security personnel and thwarting of another 6 kidnappings and the recent statements by ESSCOM, are taken as indications.

The bigger picture and longer term prospects are bleaker with the 3 additional time-bombs created under ESSCOM. Knowingly, unknowingly or unwittingly, the federal government including Umno has created these 3 time-bombs in Sabah which are real threats to the nation.

Firstly, the export of Umno’s brand of race and religion and religious extremism and fanaticism is fanning Islamic militarism as seen from arrests of IS or ISIS militants including from Sabah. They not only threaten the peace and harmony of multi-ethnic and multi-religious Sabah.

They are fanning the IS or ISIS fanaticism and recent events in Malaya show, a growing “talibanization” or misconceived “arabization” as former Premier Tun Mahathir puts it.   Now, it may be a “sarong” dress code and objections to music concerts. In time to come, the dress code for women will not be “tudung” or veil but mandatory “burqa” and the banning of all non-Islamic music and barring of women to travel unaccompanied by another male relative.  In Saudi Arabia, women are even not allowed to drive.

And with Sabah having a Muslim majority and Umno with its 31 seats and another 17 from its BN components, giving BN a 2/3 majority in the State Assembly, and growing support from hard-line PAS, there is no guarantee that hudud will not be implemented in Sabah.

The second time-bomb was planted decades ago with the issuance of dubious ICs and MyKads to foreigners especially from Southern Philippines and this time-bomb is confirmed by the recent ESSCOM statements and actions. It is now deadly and going to explode at any time aided by corruption and lack of integrity of civil servants and security personnel. At least on the corruption side, ESSCOM has started a movement with MACC to improve integrity and check the corruption.

With the Malaysia-sponsored BangsaMoro Peace Framework in Mindanao, Southern Philippines, there is no stopping of Malaysians of Filipino descent agreeing in the longer term to team-up and take Sabah out to form part of the BangsaMoro homeland.

Having realized the potential horror of the second time-bomb, the federal government has unwittingly created a third time-bomb with the issuance of citizenships to Indonesians especially the Bugis to counter the numbers of Filipino descent population.

With the growing regional nationalism, there is no guarantee that the Bugis, both imported into Sabah and in Indonesia, will not carve out part of Sabah to join up with their brethren in Sulawesi. This can be seen by our own PM who despite being generations as Malaysians has openly acknowledged his Bugis warrior bloodline.

Meantime, the favouritism of Indonesians over the Filipinos are making the latter uneasy.
“How will things turn out in Sabah and Malaysia is as good as anyone’s guess?” said Dr. Jeffrey.

After all, Sabah is the golden goose even to the federal government. It certainly will be for any others given the huge fortune in Sabah’s oil and gas. A recent new oil-well is targeted to produce 135,000 barrels a day excluding natural gas. Imagine, the fortune that awaits as Petronas prepares to open up another 16 oil-fields in Sabah for production, making oil revenue to be RM300 billion easily even at current low prices. And that does not include the other discoveries in the East Coast and the open secret “find of the century” off Sabah waters and oil-fields located on-shore in Tawau and Lahad Datu.

In the meantime, the time-bombs are ticking away. It certainly looks like the time-bombs are greater threats to the security and break-up of Malaysia than SSKM which is more a political threat to Umno/BN remaining in power.

Legal action if 999-year land leases not restored - Yong

KOTA KINABALU - Sabah Progressive Party has warned that legal action would be initiated by land owners whose rights have been arbitrarily and without valid reason trampled upon by the government.

Its president Datuk Yong Teck Lee commenting on the latest case concerning a family homestead at Cecily (Pei Ying School area) Sandakan whose 999-year land title effective 12 November 1913 was suddenly revoked and replaced with a 99-year lease, said: “There is not even any sub-division of land in this case. From the time of their grandparents, the family has been residing on the land for 100-odd years.


"The land owner only came to know about the revocation of the 999-year lease to become a 99-year lease when the land title was returned to them after the transfer to his siblings who have inherited the land from their mother who passed away in 1989."

Yong said that upon transfer of the land title from the estate of the late mother to the descendants, in accordance with the order of the High Court, the land title had the words “nine hundred and” deleted leaving only the words “ninety nine” instead of the original “nine hundred and ninety nine” years”.

The former Chief Minister highlighted this after listening to the plight of the land owner Lo Nyuk Fah who approached him and SAPP deputy president Melanie Chia, for help Tuesday.

“The tragedy of this case is that instead of inheriting their mother’s homestead land, the family has been told by the Land Department in a letter dated 10 September 2013 that their land lease has expired.

"This effectively makes them squatters on government land. How many more cases have yet to surface?

“How many more land owners with 999-year lease are also sitting on a ticking time bomb that will “blow up in their faces” when they submit their land titles to the Land Department for any purpose such as transfer, collateral for bank loans or sub-division?” he asked.

Yong also warned that if this arbitrary abuses of power to revoke 999-year leases is not challenged, then such abuse of power can also happen to 99-year leases that could be reduced to 60-year lease, or less.

He also recalled that before the 2013 general elections, land owners at Sandakan, Kudat and Lahad Datu have brought to SAPP’s attention cases of their 999-land leases been revoked and replaced with a mere 99-lease backdated to the date of issue of the original title.

“Those elected YBs in the BN government who chose to condone such abuses of power by the government should not remain in your comfort zone. In future, you or your families could suffer the same fate. Think of the peoples’ welfare,” he urged.

MotoGP Jerman Penentu Prestasi Zulfahmi

 

PETALING JAYA  1 Julai - Nasib pelumba Moto3 negara, Zulfahmi Khairuddin bersama pasukan Drive M7 SIC Team, kini bergantung pada perlumbaan MotoGP Jerman, di Litar Sachsenring, Dresden, Jerman pada 10 hingga 12 Julai ini.

Ini berikutan tindakan Litar Antarabangsa Sepang (SIC) memberi kata putus untuk pelumba kelahiran Banting, Selangor, itu meraih kedudukan dalam kelompok 10 terbaik pada perlumbaan pusingan kesembilan itu.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif SIC, Datuk Razlan Razali berkata pelumba itu berkemungkinan berdepan dengan tindakan drastik iaitu digugurkan daripada pasukan itu pada pertengahan musim MotoGP dunia.

Kecewa dengan persembahan hambar Zulfahmi pada musim ini, beliau mengesahkan akan ke Jerman untuk menyaksikan sendiri aksi pelumba itu sebelum mengambil tindakan susulan.

"Walaupun kita memberi keutamaan kepada prestasi keseluruhan pasukan ketika ini, kita turut mengambil kira persembahan Zulfahmi. Kita akan buat penilaian yang teliti kerana ia membabitkan karier pelumba itu," katanya di sini, semalam

Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita selepas majlis pelancaran pusingan ke-10 Kejuaraan Superbike Dunia (WSBK) 2015 yang akan berlangsung di Litar SIC, Sepang dari 31 Julai hingga 2 Ogos ini.

Razlan berkata, alasan masalah jentera KTM yang dibangkitkan oleh Zulfahmi sejak tahun lalu tidak boleh dijadikan satu alasan munasabah kerana semua pasukan yang menggunakan jentera sama, turut bergelut untuk meraih catatan masa terbaik.

"Kalau kedudukan (keseluruhan) beliau dekat dengan rakan sepasukan iaitu Jakub Kornfeil (dari Republik Czech) kita boleh terima, tapi beliau kini sudah ketinggalan jauh di belakang Kornfeil sebagaimana yang dilalui tahun lalu.

"Malah banyak pelumba rookie yang guna jentera lama mempamerkan prestasi yang lebih baik berbanding beliau," kata Razlan.

Zulfahmi kini menduduki tangga ke-25 daripada 28 pelumba keseluruhan dalam kelas Moto3 dengan kutipan dua mata, manakala Kornfeil berada pada kedudukan ke-17 dengan kutipan 17 mata selepas mengharungi lapan perlumbaan musim ini.

Kedudukan ke-14 daripada 20 pelumba yang dicatatkan Zulfahmi pada pusingan kelima MotoGP Perancis di Litar Le Mans, Mei lepas, adalah pencapaian terbaiknya untuk musim ini.

Musa Aman Sokong Tindakan SPRM Benteras Sindiket Memalsukan Sijil Anak Negeri : Apa Pula Usaha Kerajaan Untuk Perbaiki Integriti Negeri Yang Tercemar?


Kerajaan negeri menyokong penuh tindakan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) menyiasat sindiket pengeluaran Sijil Anak Negeri yang palsu susulan penahanan 31 individu termasuk tiga dipercayai bergelar Datuk dalam beberapa serbuan baru-baru ini.
Tindakan tegas dan menyeluruh itu amat penting bagi membanteras sindiket tersebut, demi bagi memastikan hak-hak anak negeri terus terpelihara, demekian kata Datuk Seri Musa Aman.
Sokongan Musa Aman kepada SPRM dalam membenteras pemalsuan siji Anak Negeri ada lah lumrah sebagai tanggungjawab dari seorang pemimpin nombor satu negeri. 
Berbeda dengan kad pengenalan(IC), semua aktiviti yang berkaitan dengan jenayah pemalsuan Sijil Anak Negeri tersebut melibatkan agensi dalaman yang di bawah kawalan kerajaan negeri Sabah. 
Dengan itu suka atau pun tidak, ia nya secara lansung mencabar kewibawan dan integriti pentadbiran kerajaan negeri yang kini nampak nya tercemar.
  • Sama ada telah dibuat atau pun tidak , Musa selaku Ketua Menteri bukan hanya sekadar menyokong tetapi perlu mengambi langkah proaktif dengan menyiasat sendiri punca permasalahan ini melalui agensi-agensi kerajaan yang terlibat secara langsung saperti Ketua Daerah, Ketua Anak Negeri, Ketua Kampung dan berkemungkinan juga JKKK disemua pelusuk negeri Sabah.
  • Selanjut nya,  beliau  perlu dibincang isu ini dalam masyuarat kabinet disamping melibatkan ahli-ahli  Dewan Undangan Negeri untuk tujuan mengkaji semula undang-undang yang perlu bagi menghalang dari berulang nya  kebocoran saperti ini dimasa-masa akan datang.
Hanya dengan bersandarkan kepada tangkapan, siasatan,  lapuran  SPRM dan seterus nya hukuman dari mahkamah tidak akan dapat membenteraskan masalah ini secara keseluruhan.
Pencegahan sepatut nya melibatkan kerajaan negeri Sabah semdiri dengan bantuan semua agensi akar umbi yang lebih tahu,  dengan bermula dari masyarakat tempatan, JKKK, Ketua Anak Negeri,  Ketua Daerah dan selanjutnya semua jentera Mahkamah Anak Negeri Sabah.
Selagi semangat patriotik dan berintegriti ini tidak ditanam di hati dan  sanubari  semua  lapisan masyarakt Sabah,  selagi  itu jenayah tidak  akan terhapus sampai bila-bila masa.

Kota Kinabalu Dijandikan 'Dubai' Di Rantau ASEAN Timor?



Pelik tetapi benar, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO) Air Asia melihatkan Kota Kinabalu, boleh dijadikan sebagai pusat dagangan saperti Bandar Raya Dubai di Emiriah Arab Bersatu, kepada Brunei, Malaysia, Filipina dan Kawasan Pertumbuhan Asean Timur (BIMP-EAGA). 
Air Asia juga dijangka mengembangkan operasi penerabangan tambang rendah syarikat AirAsia dengan  membawa AirAsia X dan menambah lebih banyak pesawat di Sabah.  
AirAsia x jugan merancang akan menjadikan Kota Kinabalu sebagai pusat penerabangan antara Asia Utara dan Australia. 
Selain itu menjadi hab bagi kebanyakan lokasi di Indonesia dan beberapa bahagian-bahagian lain di dunia seperti Melbourne, Tokyo atau pun Shanghai dan Beijing.
Tony berharap untuk membangunkan Lapangan Terbang Dua Terminal, yang dia percaya juga akan meningkatkan sektor pelancongan di negeri ini.
12 tahun yang lalu, AirAsia hanya membawa 
kira-kira 20,000 penumpang ke Sabah. Manakala dalam tempoh lima tahun akan datang, AiAsia dijangka akan membawa 13 juta penumpang.
Oleh itu,  AirAsia perlu mencari penyelesaian kepada isu terminal. 

Terdapat dua pilihan; 
  1. Membangunkan Terminal Dua (yang kini beroperasi sebagai terminal penerbangan kos rendah) atau
  2. Membina sebuah terminal baru.
AirAsia tidak mahu pergi ke Terminal Lapangan Terbang Antara bangsa Kota Kinabalu disebabkan ia akan penuh sesak dan penumpang perlu membayar RM65 bagi cukai lapangan terbang.
Rakyat Sabah atau pelancong tidak perlu membayar lebih kerana objektif utama AirAsia adalah untuk menawarkan mereka tambang murah yang berpatutan, Kata tony.
Terminal Dua ​​adalah sebuah bangunan lama dan tidak perlu dirobohkan. Apa yang penting ada lah melakukan pengubahsuaian, jelas Tony.
Untuk itu Tony memilih Terminal Dua dari berpindah ke Terminal Lapangan Terbang Antara bangsa sapertimana yang diwar-warkan.
Bagaimanapun dalam hal ini, AirAsia hanya  mampu  merancang, selain nya terpulang kepada pihak Kerajaan negeri.

Investigate fake Sabah ICs as well, not just Native Certs

KOTA KINABALU - “While the MACC and police investigations on fake and dubious Native Certificates are welcomed and long overdue, they should focus on and investigate fake ICs and MyKads issued not in accordance with the law which is more treasonous and threaten the sovereignty and security of Malaysia to its core” asked Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief why there are no investigations despite numerous reports on the fake ICs and MyKads issued not in accordance with the law and the enrolment of illegal voters in the electoral rolls.

The federal government, Home Ministry, police and MACC owe not just Sabahans but all Malaysians why they have taken no action to investigate the various police reports lodged after the release of the RCI Report on Illegal Immigrants in Sabah last December.   The police reports included from component BN parties.

The RCI Report specifically found that there were ICs and MyKads issued not in accordance with the law and that ineligible foreigners were unlawfully entered into the electoral rolls.

These heinous acts are treason of the highest order and in many countries the perpetuators, collaborators and culprits would have been shot or hanged, some even without trial. 

In Malaysia, these culprits walk free with many holding high positions with honorific titles and continue to hold on to power with the votes of these imported illegal “Malaysians”.   Even collaborators in the civil service get promotions and honorific titles.

Even the term “traitors” seem too shallow and mild to describe these culprits who have sold out their country and their souls for political power and to retain the position to rape and pillage the country.

In the meantime, ordinary Malaysians have to bear the brunt of these illegal citizens and voters who keep appearing in daily life with fake Sabah ICs and fake Sabahans appearing in Malaya, some caught committing crimes.

In Sabah, even ESSCOM has acknowledged that some are enemies within and involved in cross-border kidnappings and other crimes.   It is only a matter of time before fake Sabah ICs and fake Sabahans appear on a wider scale to haunt other Malaysians in Malaya.

“When will the federal government and the police authorities start their investigations and resolve the problem?” queried Dr. Jeffrey.

The continued silence and non-action of the federal government and the police authorities in failing to carry out investigations only serve to confirm the involvement of the people in power in these fake and dubious ICs and MyKads and illegal voters.   They even earn Sabah the dubious distinction of being Umno/BN’s “fixed deposit”.

SAPP urges speedy action by Committee on illegals

KOTA KINABALU - Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) has expressed concern that the proposals submitted to the Technical committee on Immigrant Management have not been deliberated on.

Its deputy president, Edward Dagul, said in a press statement yesterday that following the Independent Monitoring and Action Committee (IMAC) meeting with Tan Sri Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan and the Technical Committee on Immigrant Management on April 15, SAPP has through its president, Datuk Yong Teck Lee, submitted further materials on April 24 for the Technical Committee’s further action.



The materials submitted included a position paper entitled ‘Illegal immigrants in Sabah – The mother of all threats’, as well as a witness statement by Datuk Yong Teck Lee in the RCI proceedings.

“Two months on and still no news from the committee. We hope that it is not a case of too little, too late when dealing with the perennial problem of illegal immigrants in Sabah,” Edward said.

“As mentioned time and again, the people of Sabah expect this illegal immigrant problem to be resolved in the shortest possible time.

“Strong political will would be needed to formulate corrective measures to the current laws, including heavier penalties and transparency,” said Edward.

Extend Investigations on Fake Native Certs - Dr. Jeffrey

KOTA KINABALU - “The MACC and the police should extend their investigations on fake Native certificates and Native certificates which are dubiously issued to unqualified persons which is long overdue to weed out sham certificates that rob natives of their native land rights” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief commenting on reports of the investigations on the non-native holder of the purported Native certificate owning some 300 native titles and ASN investments of more than RM7 million.

That single dubious Native certificate given to a non-native is just the tip of the iceberg and investigations should be widened its scope and net to nab other culprits as well as they are numerous reports of non-natives being registered as owners of native titles.

The issuance of genuine certificates to non-natives is a serious abuse of power and perhaps involve corruption and offenders including the issuing authority should be investigated and brought before the law.

Non-natives owning native lands is a growing menace to the future of natives in Sabah with long-term negative implications if the problem remains unchecked and allowed to continue.

The case under investigation of a non-native holding 300 native titles is a very good example of the consequences of a fake Native certificate on native lands and the loss by natives.

The Sabah government need to be more pro-active in protecting and preserving native lands and to assist natives with their native lands.

The fake Native certificates as well as genuine certificates given to non-natives together with the various land grabs and eviction of native customary lands all over Sabah and the destruction of their crops and plants only show that the Sabah government has failed to protect the natives.

Another growing concern is the growing land areas of native lands allegedly held by non-natives of Indonesian descent with land areas reported to be in the tens of thousands of acres.

The Sabah government and the Lands and Surveys Department should ensure that only qualified natives are registered as native landowners and should not allow the registration to the “Melayu” or “bumiputra” category who are non-natives.   Not every Malay or bumiputra is a native of Sabah.

The government should also establish a mechanism, perhaps a Native Land Foundation, to assist Natives to develop their NT lands and extend the category of land use from “agriculture” to include “industrial” and “commercial” while remaining as NT land.   This will help maintain native title ownerships which are dwindling day by day due to conversion to CL and TL titles.

This Native Land Foundation can also be tasked with owning the 30% ownership of lands reserved for natives which are imposed on landowners of larger pieces of land but abused through manipulation and use of nominees to circumvent the law and land title conditions.   Large plantation companies should also be required to allocate 30% of their land holdings to this Foundation.

The Sabah government should also establish a Land Tribunal which has been recommended and supported by many government leaders. 

The Land Tribunal can serve as a mechanism to resolve land disputes especially for the natives where their lands and ancestral lands are alienated to outsiders, without having to go through the often costly and lengthy court process.

It is pointless and meaningless for the Sabah government to expect the natives to fight for their land rights in Court especially against large corporations when the Sabah government can easily protect and prevent native lands from falling into the hands of non-Sabahans and non-natives.

To further protect natives, the Native Affairs Unit should be upgraded into a full-fledged “MAJLIS ADAT ANAK NEGERI” befitting the status of natives as equal to Malays in Malaya as set out in the Federal Constitution.   The natives of Sabah do not and should not belong to the “Others” category as practised now by the federal and Sabah governments.

The Sabah government can start to safeguard native land rights by extending the investigations of fake Native certificates and dubiously issued certificates and a review of ownership of all NT lands to verify that they are genuinely held by natives.   Otherwise, in the longer term, the natives will find themselves to be squatters in their own land, as is happening now throughout Sabah.

Sarawak Report NGAKU SALAH tapi nak saman? Edge ngaku juga ...

sarawak report

Sarawak Report mengecam Xavier Justo sebagai pencuri sumber data dan juga mengesahkan bahawa sekurang-kurangnya satu daripada fail telah diubahsuai oleh Justo tetapi tidak ada perubahan dalam dokumen itu.

Jadi macam mana pula dengan dokumen lain yang berlambak dan emel yang Sarawak Report dah siarkan? Boleh ke mereka sahkan bahawa semua dokumen itu tidak diubah suai sebelum diserahkan kepada Sarawak Report ataupun diubah oleh Sarawak Report? 

Sarawak Report juga letakkan diri mereka dalam keadaan bahaya dengan memiliki dokumen curi yang telah dipindahkan atau dijual oleh penjenayah yang disyaki. Dimana ini bukan kali pertama mereka berurusan dengan penjenayah.

Kini satu lagi perkara yang tak masuk akal ialah Sarawak Report memberi amaran untuk saman sesiapa saja yang memfitnah berdasarkan harta yang telah dicuri, yang tidak masuk akalnya apabila mereka melakukan perkara ini mereka ada The Edge dan The Malaysian Insider untuk melaporkan dan pembangkang untuk mengatakannya.

Jadi lepas ni apa yang korang nak tipu lagi Sarawak Report?

The Edge telah diberi amaran!

The Edge perlu menghadapi tindakan amaran daripada kerajaan terhadapnya, telah mengumumkan bahawa mereka tidak akan menggunakan lagi emel yang telah dibocorkan mengenai masalah syarikat kerajaan 1Malaysia Development Bhd.

Selepas diberitahu secara meluas dari Sarawak Report, The Edge akhirnya tampil untuk berhadapan dengan amaran dari tindakan kerajaan.

The Edge telah membuat dakwaan palsu ke atas transaksi kewangan dan pelaburan 1MDB yang mencurigakan yang dilaporkan mempunyai hutang sebanyak RM 42 bilion.

Dalam satu kenyataan, The Edge berkata "Kami akan tangguhkan kepada Menteri Dalam Negeri dan tidak akan rujuk emel itu lagi dalam mana-mana laporan kami sehingga semuanya selesai tentang mereka", manakala mereka mengalu-alukan pihak berkuasa sekiranya ingin membuat apa-apa penyiasatan ke dalam emel dan juga menawarkan bantuan kepada pegawai yang inginkan sebarang pengesahan yang sahih.

Jadi The Edge hanya menunggu untuk berhadapan dengan tindakan kerajaan mengenai kesahihan wartawan mereka dan bukannya mengesahkannya terlebih dahulu.

Etika kewartawanan apa yang digunakan disini?


Kira dah ngakulah The Edge tu ... Macam-macma kisah di FB Anti TMI SINI

Benar Kah Pemimpin Kita Kurang Memiliki Sikap Integriti, Tidak Cerdik Sehingga Di Jenamakan Saperti Badut?


Apakah Malaysia ketirisan pemimpin politik termasuk mereka yang menjawat jawatan menteri kurang memiliki integriti atau pun tidak cerdik sehingga dikatakan mengeluarkan kenyataan saperti badut?
Berhubung dengan persoalan tersebut, Pensyarah Sains Politik Univeristi Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Penganalisis politik, Prof Madya Datuk Dr Mohamad Agus Yusoff(gambar) berkata,‎ sudah tiba masanya menteri yang dilantik memahami denyut nadi rakyat dan bukannya dari golongan yang bercakap seperti tin kosong.
Kata beliau selanjut nya, menteri perlu dilantik daripada mereka memahami kesempitan hidup rakyat dengan keadaan ekonomi sekarang. Selain 
itu  mereka  bersih, cerdik dan beriman 
supaya boleh memacu negara kita ke depan.
Dalam nada yang hampir-hampir sama, Tunku Mahkota Johor (TMJ), Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim berpendapat Kebanyakan pemimpin pada hari ini kurang memiliki sikap integriti yang merupakan sikap agung bagi seorang pemimpin. 
Salah satu ujian dalam kepimpinan adalah untuk mengenalpasti sesuatu masalah sebelum ia menjadi darurat, titah baginda.
Menurut Tunku Ismail, pemimpin yang hebat memperoleh kekuatan untuk mencapai visinya daripada semangat yang kental dan bukannya daripada jawatan atau kedudukannya.
Kunci kepimpinan yang cemerlang pada hari ini adalah dengan mempunyai pengaruh, bukannya dengan menunjukkan kuasa, jelas baginda.
Tiada maknanya jika anda mempunyai  kuasa tetapi  tidak mampu mempengaruhi rakyat secara positif.Itu petanda yang anda tidak layak menjadi seorang pemimpin,
titah baginda.
