Urged Adenan Stop Land for the Cronies policy

Adenan should not carry on with the “Land for the Cronies” policy which is the trademark of his predecessor.

There were in total 3 rounds of acquisition of the land in the Kampong Gita area:
1. 16-5-2014 for construction of access road;
2. 3-12-2014 for urban development; and
3. 18-6-2016 for urban development.
The first round of land acquisition (16-5-2014) was for the construction of access road. No one objected to the acquisition, because it is for a genuine “public purpose”.
The second round of land acquisition (3-12-2014) involves the acquisition of a total 132.8 acres of private land. Although the declaration for the acquisition of the 132.8 acres of land was made as early as in December, 2014, the Government only issue notice of the said acquisition as late as in mid-July, 2016, almost 2 years later. This is HIGHLY UNUSUAL.
Is the Government worried that had such notices been issued in 2015, it will affect the performance of the Sarawak BN in the Sarawak State elections? As a result of this consideration, the notices of the acquisition were only sent out after the State Elections.
The third round of land acquisition (18-6-2016) involves the acquisition of 15.440 acres of private land. It is as if the 132.8 acres of land is not enough for the “BN crony”, that it needs another 15.44 acres, making it a total of 148.24 acres of private land to be acquired.
Notices for the acquisition for both the second and third rounds of the acquisition were issued at the same time, i.e. mid-July, 2016.
During the enquiry, when the Land and Survey officers were asked what is the “urban Development” that requires 148.24 acres of private land to be acquired, they have no answer to it. When we asked for the so-called “urban development” plan, they told us “NO PLAN YET”. They officers mentioned that there will be some water-front projects, shophouses and residential property.
It is not the government’s job to develop shophouses and commercial centres, especially to take private land for “crony” to develop shouhouses. This is called “land-grabbing”.
Sarawak, in general, had suffered under the “land-grabbing” policy of the previous administration for more than 20 years.
When Adenan became the new Chief Minister on 1st March, 2014, most Sarawakians had high hopes of him when he mentioned that he “will not allow his family members to apply for State Land”. A week later, we had the notorious scandal of “276 acres MJC State Land sold to a BN crony company at less than 25% of the prevailing market price”. The case is still unresolved.
In the present case, the Government is acquiring private land for BN cronies. Taking the land from the people to benefit the BN cronies.
The term “urban development” is the blanket excuse given by the BN Government to acquire private land for its cronies. Few years back, when the Government attempted to acquire 3000 acres of private land at Bako area for its cronies, it also used “urban development” as the ground of the acquisition. As it was later revealed, that “urban development” includes building condominiums, apartment, commercial centres, etc. by private developer.
Fortunate for the landowners in the Bako area, DAP was gaining strength, especially in the urban area. We won the 2010 Sibu by-elections and we went on to win 12 DUN seats in the subsequent 2011 State Elections. This political pressure ultimately forced the BN Government to cancel the Bako Land acquisition exercise.
In 2016 Sarawak State Elections, DAP suffered severe setback and BN regained some of its lost seats from DAP. 2 months after the DAP’s defeat, BN Government is now back to its “Land for the Cronies” policy.
We call upon Adenan to hold true to his advocacy for clean governance and stop this land-grabbing action.

促阿德南停止“掠地惠朋党”的政策

(古晋22日讯)民主行动党古晋市国会议员兼哥打圣淘沙州议员张健仁敦促阿德南停止“掠地惠朋党”的政策。 

张健仁是针对砂州政府最近征收座落在马当KampongGita约142英亩私人地的事件,做出如是发表。

也是砂州民主行动党主席的张健仁表示,这种“掠地惠朋党”的政策,是过去前任首长政府的“专长”,似乎如今阿德南的政府,也开始走回这条“掠地惠朋党”的老路了。

张氏指出,有关马当Kampong Gita的地段,政府总共有3轮的征地行动,即:
1. 2014年5月16日,以“建路”的理由征地;
2. 2014年12月3日,以“城市发展”的理由征地;
3. 2016年6月18日,以“城市发展”的理由征地。

张氏透露,第一轮的政府征地行动(16-5-2014),地主们都没有反对,因为它是为了建路,是为了真正的“公共利益用途”而征地,所以地主们都没有反对。

他说,第二轮的政府征地行动(3-12-2014),涉及132.8英亩的私人地,征地的理由是“城市发展”用途。 虽然征地的官方宣布是于2014年12月就已做出了,但是砂州政府等到2016年7月,将近两年后,才出信通知地主们有关征地的决定。

“这是极不寻常的举动。 为何2014年的征地决定,却拖到2016年7月才出通知信? 难道国阵政府担心它会影响砂国阵在2016年砂州选举国阵的成绩? 因此,等到砂州选举过后才发出通知信告知这些地主们,他们的土地被政府征收了。”

张氏说,第三轮的政府征地行动(18-6-2016),涉及15.44英亩的私人地,征地的理由也是“城市发展”用途。 似乎132.8英亩的地,还是不足以满足国阵朋党的贪焚,要整片148.24英亩的地才足够。

张氏也说,第二和第三轮的政府征地的通知信,是于2016年7月中同时发出。

他也透露,在上星期和土地局的咨询会中,土地局的官员都无法解答,这“城市发展”计划为何物?

“当我问他们这‘城市发展’的计划图在哪里?他们说还没有图。 土地局的官员说,有一些是河岸建设工程,一些是商店和住家的发展工程。”

张健仁表示,发展商店不是政府的工作,尤其是,征收私人土地用以发展商店。 这不是真正的“公共利益用途”。 这是“掠夺人民的土地”。 砂州在过去20年,就是被这种“掠地惠朋党”的政策所迫害。

他说,当阿德南刚刚上任当首长时宣布说他将不允许他的家人申请政府地,人民对他寄以厚望。 但是,一个星期后,就发生古晋石角MJC贱卖267英亩政府地的丑闻。 到目前为止,这案件还悬而未决。

“那267英亩MJC对面的地段的事件,是贱卖政府地。如今Kampong Gita的征地行动是,拿人民的土地,惠朋党。”

“那所谓的‘城市发展计划’的政府征地理由,根本就是国阵在企图合法化掠地惠朋党的不公平政策。”

张氏说,早在几年前,政府欲征收座落在青山岩约3000英亩的私人地,政府所给予的理由也是“城市发展计划”。 之后被暴露,这“城市发展计划”包括给私人发展商建公寓,商业中心等。

张氏指出,在青山岩政府征地的事件中,地主们幸运的是,当时民主行动党的支持率与日增加,尤其是在城市地区。

“我们2010年在诗巫补选胜出。 接着又在2011年砂州选举攻下12个州议席。 这强大的政治力量和压力,致使砂州政府取消青山岩的政府征地行动。 反观目前,2016年5月砂州选举,行动党惨败,国阵赢回几个城市的选区,之后还不到3个月的时间,国阵政府又重新走回‘掠地惠朋党’政策。”

我再次的呼吁阿德南,应履行他刚上任时要实施廉政的豪言,立刻停止掠夺人民土地的政策。

市政局取消刘氏管理权 石角夜市小贩风波再起

砂民主行动党主席张健仁(左)在夜市管理公司业主刘源真(右)陪同下﹐展示石角新市镇部分夜市小贩们所签署的请愿书。
(本报古晋20日讯)对于石角新市镇夜市小贩风波,砂民主行动党主席张健仁“挑战”巴达旺市议会主席罗克强澄清两点,即市议会中止夜市管理公司的管理权后,是否计划将管理权交给另外第三方(私人公司),或市议会自己管理﹔以及所谓“目前”市议会没有向约400名小贩征收任何费用,那无征收费用之举的时限是多久?
其今早在有关夜市管理公司业主刘源真陪同下,所召开的新闻发布会上,发表上述言论。
据悉,该区夜市共400个摊位,其中约120个摊位是在刘氏业主管理下长达8年,相关合约属每年更新,而在第八年的更新期改为每6个月,直到今年,市议会致函给刘氏,并在没有给予任何理由情况下,表示在今年6月30日中止其管理权。
张健仁表示,在刘氏管理之下的摊位,每一个摊位一日收费是5令吉,一周2天(即周四及周五),而市议会却在大选过后的今年6月,取消刘氏的管理权。
允许另家公司处理夜市
“实际上在去年3月,市议会尝试要取消刘氏管理权,同时允许另外一家私人公司来处理夜市,包括将夜市从现有地方转移去一个私人地方(还是同一个区域),而当时公布的新收费是每日19令吉,且强制性要小贩经营5天等等,不过那时候引得小贩们抗议,之后市议会就继续由之经营,保持原状。”
“直到今年刘氏再次收到信函,并在中止期后,有非市议会代表的第三方去该夜市进行打扫、划格子及调动小贩等。”
他直言,该区一些小贩非常担心,刘氏管理权被取消之后,权限将转移给别的私人公司,因此,在上周四发起的请愿书签名运动,收集到约130个签名,其中包括刘氏此前所管理的95%小贩签名,要求市议会保持原状,允许刘氏继续管理。
市议会姿态模凌两可
他抨击市议会模凌两可的姿态,并对罗克强指其误导小贩的言论说,“希望不要太低估小贩的智慧,他们不傻,不会如此轻易的被任何人的言论所误导。”
他形容,若小贩没有感到生计被影响,就不会有多达130人写下姓名、身份证号码及摊位号码而签署请愿书。毕竟做夜市生意,最愿意就是与市议会合作。
他质疑,如果市议会没有计划交给第三方私人公司,以后的整洁工作由谁负责?而要接管的第三方虽还未正式露面,不过目前却有实际性管理的举措。
他强调,上述是当地小贩最关注的问题,特别是希望罗克强尊重民意,且请愿书是在刘氏管理之下小贩的意愿;去年也有一份请愿书,但最终不被受理。
同时,刘氏在现场也表明希望市议会给予说明,尤其是收费方面,如果没有对小贩征费,或与目前征费一样或更低,那本身非常乐意将管理权交给市议会接管。

MPP questioned over possible new management for market

Chong shows a petition claiming to have 130 signatories calling for MPP to allow Liew Ngian Chin (right), proprietor of Triple S Marketing which previously managed the market, to be reinstated.
KUCHING: The Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) has been questioned on whether it would appoint a new management company for the MJC Batu Kawah Night Market.
State Democratic Action Party (DAP) chairman Chong Chieng Jen called on MPP to clarify the issue.
“If so, what would the management fee be like? Also, MPP, after taking over the management of the hawkers’ market, said it is not collecting fees at the moment. How long will this last before they start collecting fees?” he asked during a press conference yesterday.
He claimed that ever since MPP took over the management of the market, individuals from a private company had been seen cleaning up at the market and even drew space markings for the stalls.
“It seems like a third party is already taking over, even though not officially made known,” Chong claimed.
On Friday, MPP chairman Lo Khere Chiang had stated hawkers could continue to trade as usual and that there would be no change to the fees charged.
“The hawkers would pay exactly the same as what they are paying now, not more, not less,” he said.
Previously MPP collected RM3 out of the RM5 per day charged by the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority for each stall.
Some 400 hawkers trade at the market every Thursday and Friday.

见证砂选举委员会烧毁圣淘沙区选票

砂州选举委员会昨日正式烧毁圣淘沙区选票,而身为民主行动党哥打圣淘沙区州议员张健仁也亲自前往现场见证。
这项选票销毁工作是于昨午在位于石角德沙威拉的巴达旺园艺处进行,该区选区所有选票,包括邮寄选票一律被烧毁。
“所有的选票在大选后都被封在塑胶袋里,过后,在销毁前才在候选人及选举官的见证下被拆开并即刻烧毁。”

选票绝对是保密的,没有人会知道选民把选票投给谁,因此,张健仁表示国阵过去一直恫言知道选民投票去向的言论根本不成立,选民无需感到担心,更不会因为把投票给谁而受到对付。
在今年5月7日举行的第11届砂州选举,来自民主行动党的张健仁以2819张多数票击败人联党候选人叶耀星,张健仁共获得1万0047张选票。

砂拉越 新改良《火箭报》

砂拉越民主行动党今日推介砂拉越版的火箭报,将其内容加入更多砂拉越元素以及更多的砂拉越新闻。这将使得砂拉越人民不单单可以获得全国课题的汇报,而且更能够更加的、仔细的了解砂拉越地方性的课题。今日出席推介礼的砂拉越行动党众领袖包括了该党砂州主席张健仁。
张健仁表示,在国阵的执政底下,这几十年来马来西亚的媒体自由度每况愈下,特别是近年来更加是变本加厉。根据近年来的数据显示,马来西亚的媒体自由度差强人意,被评论为“媒体不自由的国家”。
“我们可以清楚地看到在今年的刚过去的砂州选举时期,砂拉越国阵政府控制媒体的手段更加的严重,无论是平面媒体或是电台都被指示,有特定的模式来包装砂国阵领袖。而且在网络媒体方面,砂国阵更是雇佣了庞大的网络打手来污蔑并且散播许多针对行动党的不实以及毫无根据的指控。甚至我们许多的候选人及领袖在州选举期间,电话号码也被盗用以散播不确实的言论。”
“民主行动党面对这样庞大的金钱及机制的打压,我们仍然要坚守我们的岗位,那就是要向民众传达事实。这事实是根据证据及理据。马来西亚人民不应该再继续被谎言所蒙蔽,马来西亚人民有绝对的知情权,特别是针对国阵政府如何盗窃国家资产。”
因此张健仁表示,在种种国阵谎言的掩盖下,砂拉越民主行动党必须从这种困境中给予一盏明灯,那就是透过新改良版的火箭报,给予人民最真实的报导。因此民主行动党希望各界人士继续的鼎力支持火箭报,使火箭报能够继续生存,特别是面对百物高涨的时候,火箭报的生存更艰难。
新改良版的火箭报依然是售价3令吉,并且由民主行动党各区的领袖以及党员负责兜售。今天所推介的第一期砂拉越版火箭报将会向砂拉越人民揭发国阵砂州选举前和选举后“大变脸”的十大例子。此外,张健仁也表示,火箭报也在研究推行电子报的可能性,以促使火箭报的阅读率可以更加的广泛。
