张健仁:取缔猪毛漆刷 极端宗教主义渗透砂

张健仁(右2)在特别助理阿都阿兹(左起)、行动党实旦宾区国会议员陈国彬和特别助理俞利文陪同下,针对取缔猪毛油漆刷课题召开新闻发布会。
(本报古晋9日讯)砂行动党强烈谴责贸消部取缔五金店售卖没有标志的猪毛油漆刷,并强调这显示巫统的极端宗教主义政策已经渗透砂拉越!

行动党砂州主席张健仁今日召开新闻发布会时表示,巫统的极端主义政策将分化砂拉越人民的团结,制造穆斯林与非穆斯林之间的仇恨,摧毁砂拉越各族自豪的和谐社会结构。
“这也证明,虽然巫统并不存在砂拉越,但是依然影响砂拉越人民的生活。”
他质问,马来西亚成立54年,猪毛油漆刷一直在砂拉越并非一个课题,为何拿督阿玛阿邦佐哈里上任砂首长不到一个月,就变成大问题?
“阿邦佐哈里是否允许巫统的政策在砂拉越执行?砂政府如果允许,下一个问题就是这个极端主义程度会到哪里?是否屋子使用猪毛刷油漆,穆斯林就不能住?”
也是古晋区国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙区州议员的张健仁强调,砂拉越的社会结构是建立在世俗国基础,各族各宗教互相礼让,相处融洽。
吁首长表明立场
他表示,砂拉越必须一开始就要拒绝巫统的政策渗透,不让它影响砂拉越享有的和平安定。
他声言,阿邦佐哈里虽然与巫统的关系很亲密,但是这份关系不应该影响砂拉越各族的和谐,因此呼吁阿邦佐哈里立刻表明立场,停止这种极端主义在砂拉越蔓延。
他说,根据报导指出,贸消部在砂拉越13个地点同步进行取缔,被充公的油漆刷将送去化验,售卖的商家也可能被控上法庭,最高罚款10万令吉,或三年监禁,或两者兼施。
“行动党将帮助被提控的商家,提供法律援助。”
张健仁继称,有关我国贸消部取缔猪毛油漆刷的新闻,已在澳洲有大势报导,这将令外国人误认为马来西亚是塔利班主义,因此必须尽快停止这个行动,尤其是砂拉越更要率先停止,否则最终对我国并没有好处。

张健仁促请首长下令 不执行取缔猪毛漆器

左起黄庆伟、张健仁和杨薇讳展示该党为民提供的告示贴纸。
(本报古晋10日讯)行动党砂州委员会主席张健仁呼吁砂土保党主席拿督阿玛阿邦佐哈里下令﹐要求国内贸易及消费部副部长兼砂土保党最高理事亨利逊阿贡禁止在砂拉越展开取缔猪毛漆器的行动,也不要在砂拉越执行有关条例。

“阿邦佐哈里身为砂土保党的‘老大’有绝对的权力﹐要求党员下令不执行有关条例,得以真正解决有关问题的源头。”
针对取缔猪毛漆器行动喊停一事,行动党砂州委员会主席张健仁披露,有关的指示只是暂时的,并不是完全停止执行2013年商标(猪或狗部位制成品)条例。
只是暂时暂停取缔
张健仁今日在浮罗岸区州议员黄庆伟和朋岭区州议员杨薇讳的陪同下假砂行动党总部召开新闻发布会时表示,从贸消部长所发出的文告显示,有关的暂停取缔行动只是暂时的,很明显国阵政府在“带过”有关课题。
他认为,因着有关取缔事件造成砂拉越各族之间敏感的课题﹐不应只是暂时停止取缔行动,而是要发出官方信函停止在砂拉越执行有关条例。
他称,近日贸消部是根据2013年商标(猪或狗部位制成品)条例的执行取缔行动,而来自砂土保党的贸消部副部长亨利逊阿贡有权力要求贸消部执行有关任务及停止有关任务。
免破坏砂各族间和谐
因此,他呼吁砂首长拿督阿玛阿邦佐哈里要求亨利逊阿贡法令停止在砂拉越执行有关条例,避免破坏砂拉越各族间的和谐。
他指出,近4天的取缔行动也反映出马来西亚在国际主要媒体上,造成对我国多数的印象是已迈向成为塔利班国的方向,宗教极端主义已在扎根。
他质问砂首长拿督阿玛阿邦佐哈里,为何在他的领军下,有关事件会延烧至砂拉越?为何在该事件上仍保持沉默?
他指出,不久前,当西马基督徒不得使用“阿拉”字眼时,砂拉越已故首长阿迪南很快便出来说,砂拉越基督徒可用“阿拉”的字眼。

Sarawak DAP offers legal aid to pig bristle brush traders

Traders may still face prosecution for mislabelling the products even though the raids on shops have stopped.

KUCHING: Sarawak DAP has offered legal assistance to traders in the state who may be prosecuted for mislabelling pig-bristle paintbrushes even though the domestic trade, cooperatives and consumerism minister has called for a halt to the raids on shops.
Sarawak DAP leader Chong Chieng Jen expressed relief at the call to end the raids that he claimed would “destroy the harmonious social fabric” of Sarawak and cause “ill feelings” among the ethnic groups there.
“Such extremism has no place in Sarawak and we should not allow it.
“Sarawak is built on principles of a secular state and a foundation of tolerance and respect for all races and religions,” he said today.
It was reported that 13 business premises were raided in the state and hundreds of brushes seized for forensic tests.
Business owners can be prosecuted and fined a maximum RM100,000 and jailed up to three years or both, if found guilty.
Deputy Chief Minister James Jemut Masing is also glad to see the end of the raids.
“I am happy to note that Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Hamzah Zainudin has ordered a stop to the raids on shops in Malaysia.
“They were uncalled for, especially in Sarawak,” he said.
Hamzah has ordered enforcement officers to cease all raids, following a Cabinet decision.
Traders have been given a month to correctly label their goods, including to specify if they are made of materials derived from pig or dog.
The ministry has so far seized a total of 2,000 paintbrushes made of pig bristles, in nationwide raids since Tuesday.
Masing denounced the raids as detrimental to inter-religious relations.
“Overzealous behaviour of Muslim authorities regarding products sold in Malaysia will cause ill feelings in people of other religions. It will divide instead of unite (the people) as we live in a multi-faith society.”

张健仁:谢绝沈桂贤邀请 行动党不加入国阵

(古晋7日讯)砂民主行动党主席张健仁国州议员强调,该党绝对不会支持和加入以贪腐政策管理国家的国阵。

他说,我国的政、经、文、教,4大领域就是给国阵搞到一团糟,而人民生活则被弄得水深火热。
“因此要民主行动党加入国阵或人联党,这个绝对是不可能的事件。”
亦是古晋区国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙区州议员的张健仁是针对沈桂贤日前邀请在野党加入人联党,以加强华人在国阵的代表,做出如此回应。
他指出,到今天国阵各个成员党还是支持和认同着纳吉的国际丑闻及一马发展公司,为国家的经济带来灾难性的破坏,经济上伤害全部马来西亚和砂拉越人民。
“更何况,人联党曾在州和联邦选举全胜,拥有空前强大的代表权在国阵的体系内。
但在人联党全盛时期,它并无法为华社带来任何利益,甚至连独中拨款也没有。”
有竞争才有进步
他称,事实和历史证明,只有当在野党的力量开始壮大,给予国阵更大的压力和竞争,甚至有替代政权的可能性存在时,人民才会得到更公平的对待。
张健仁以独中拨款为例表示,这也是在人联党输掉13个州议席和6个国会议席之后,砂政府才有做出如是拨款。而这就是典型的“有竞争才有进步”的例子。

张健仁:阻快捷通进来 砂公交由砂来管

民主行动党古晋市国会议员张健仁表示,州公共交通领域应该由砂政府来经营改善和提升。
(本报古晋2日讯)为了减缓古晋市日益严重的交通拥挤问题,吉隆坡快捷通巴士有限公司(RapidKL)或将在近期内在古晋营运,民主行动党古晋市国会议员张健仁对此表示﹐州政府不但应该阻止,也应交由砂政府来控制、管理和提升本地公共交通。

张健仁今日在受访时表示,基本上,吉隆坡快捷通巴士有限公司是和巫统有关联。他认为这种开放该该公司进来处理本地公共交通设施,有违砂州主权。
他补充并不反对政府提升公共交通,而且也一直呼吁政府应该大幅度改善这一方面的需求。并表示州政府应该提升公共交通领域。
他说,一旦开放了之后,将由西马公司来做决策,州政府才来深讨﹐为时已晚。

Chong: SUPP should ask for finance minister post, not DCM post

KUCHING: Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) should be requesting for a finance minister post rather than badgering for a deputy chief minister post if it truly wants to serve the people.
State DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen said this was so because the post of deputy chief minister “has no portfolio or real power”.
In a statement yesterday, Chong cited several reasons that this post (DCM) was merely symbolic.
“For one, there is no specific function or power of a deputy chief minister. For instance, although Tan Sri Datuk Amar Dr James Masing is a deputy chief minister, his jobs and functions are still in the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Transformation. As for Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah his main job is still with the Ministry of Modernisation of Agriculture and Rural Economy.
“Therefore, rather than asking for a token or symbolic post, why not ask for one that has real function and power, namely the finance minister post?”
Chong, who is also Bandar Kuching MP and Kota Sentosa assemblyman, said it was also the late Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem’s wish not to appoint a deputy chief minister from SUPP.
“When he (Adenan) created the third deputy chief minister post in May last year, SUPP made a demand to have its leader appointed as a deputy chief minister. Its request was however rejected, which shows that it was his (Adenan) decision not to have a deputy chief minister from SUPP.”
He added so much had been said by SUPP leaders on continuing Adenan’s legacy and wishes but he questioned if they were true. Why was SUPP openly challenging his decision so soon after his passing and even within the seven-day mourning period.
“It seems that whatever is claimed by SUPP about continuing the legacy of the late Adenan, such claims were made merely for the purpose of political expediency.
“When it comes to the personal interest of a ministerial post for a SUPP leader, Adenan’s legacy or otherwise, is never a factor to be taken into consideration by SUPP.”
He also reckoned that the finance minister’s post could help the people better because the minister could do much more than a deputy chief minister.
“At least, a finance minister has the power to decide on financial allocation for Chinese and mission schools, and other purposes.”
The other reasons, Chong said was that SUPP used to hold the finance ministerial post and that if the party were to hold this post, it would surely have an absolute advantage over UPP because its president Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh was only second finance minister.
“But the question is, why is SUPP not demanding for this post? Have they not thought about it, or rather, are they afraid of PBB?”
Nevertheless, Chong said there was no limit to the number of DCMs being appointed.
“Adenan increased the number to three and the new Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg can well further increase it to four, five or even six.
“The only limit imposed by the Sarawak Constitution is that there shall not be more than 10 other ministers in the cabinet. Nothing is said about the number of deputy chief ministers,” he said.
As such, he said apart from satisfying personal egos, there was no practical significance even if a SUPP leader were appointed a deputy chief minister.
“However, if SUPP truly wants to help and serve the people, the finance minister post is of more significance. Rather than talking about the deputy chief minister post, SUPP should demand the return of the finance ministerial post which it once held,” he said.

Chong: No comment until end of mourning period

KUCHING: The state DAP will withhold any congratulatory notes or comments on the appointment of Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg as the new chief minister until the end of the 7-day mourning period for the passing of Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem.
Its state chairman, Chong Chieng Jen, issued the statement in response to querries from media organisations which had asked him to comment on the appointment of Abang Johari as the new chief minister on Jan 13.
“To me, it is most inappropriate that the appointment of a new chief minister be made so soon after the passing of Adenan, especially given that the state government has just announced a 7-day mourning period.
“Why can’t the state BN wait out the 7-day period before plunging into the joy that comes with the new appointment,” he said through a press statement yesterday.
“Afterall, there is no danger of BN losing its power during the period. Why the rush? One day the state was in mourning and the next it was in congratulatory mood. Wouldn’t the latter diminish the notion of mourning?” he added.
Chong said all governments had a system and mechanism to operate for seven days without a chief minister.
“Sarawak has three deputy chief ministers. Couldn’t the three of them take up the job for the time being – for seven days? There is absolutely no reason to have the appointment and swearing-in to be made so soon.
“For the time being, I will not say anymore about Abang Johari’s appointment. I will not forward my words of congratulations yet.There are plenty of time for that after the seven-day mourning period.
“Let us, during this time, sit back, cherish the memory of Adenan and reflect on the things that he has done during the past three years, and think of those that he has yet to do which we must do, for the betterment of Sarawak,” he said.
